Well, the feminine version of 'hero' is (albeit anachronistic now) 'heroine,' so it's still sufficiently Floridian in its own way.

She ain't from round here.

Has she become an actual scientist in some relevant field, or is she still a (literally) glorified HTML editor?

Dork Gently: Has she become an actual scientist in some relevant field, or is she still a (literally) glorified HTML editor?


Yeah. So initially I was all with her. But now it's coming out that she's mixing active case data with antibody data to increase posture numbers.

But as essentially EVERYONE now knows, the antibody tests mean squat. So using that fur anything is just inflating numbers.

I don't want numbers purposefully quashed. I don't want them inflated.

Just give me the raw data.

If our are editing HTML to put new numbers on your dashboard you are most assuredly doing it wrong.

The included video of people protesting gym closures by exercising without a gym was a nice touch.

Stay stupid, Florida.

I believe she was using one group's visualization platform and templates to display some other group's data.  So she probably edited at least a bit of JavaScript, although may not have work much from scratch.  She was fired (most recently) for insubordination by publishing data that the scientists with relevant backgrounds thought was misleading, and then making unauthorized public statements about it, so it's hard to rate her as a hero.

She's a PhD with relevant academic and work experience in data science.

How does that compare to your degree in anonymously sneering and pissing on people who do actual work?

Florida is artificially inflating the total test count to include untested samples. This lets people see that.

It's as much of a fix as someone can make based on public information. Florida is still failing to account for presumptive cases from people who have died of pneumonia but were never tested.

It may be a low bar, but she's a hell of a lot more qualified than the politicians who fired her.

How is a PhD in geography relevant to epidemiology?  What actual data science has she done, beyond importing data and tweaking somebody else's plotting engine?

I'm going to sneer at insubordinate miscreants with criminal records for assault and a history of dating students who later got restraining orders against them pretty much any time the usual holier-than-thou crowd decides to glorify them.  By the time I was her age, I had done significantly more actual science than she has.

I want a Lamborghini because the founder wanted a Ferrari that was comfortable.
Used to want a Ferrari, because I loved Magnum PI. (As a child.) Team Tom Selleck.
I don't care what fools at MacDonald's think. And, when I got $$$$$ to own that kind of ride, I'll be cooking in my restaurant quality kitchen. Which has a walk-in refrigerator and freezer.  And that stove with five burners and a flat iron grill.

I've already got a walk in fridge and freezer. But only in winter. We call it the kitchen.

See that "NEW" flag at the top of the right hand column?  Perhaps she added that section after journalists called her out for improperly mixing the numbers.

So you're correct she has no degree in epidemiology but she's not making predictions she's simply displaying data.
But I agree with you people with out Epidemiological degrees or degrees in communicable disease should not be giving advice on how to stop outbreaks; however, there's nothing wrong with someone collating data and displaying the results especially if they are adept at  SQL.
As far as the stalking thing goes: this is Florida you can't even pass 10th grade unless you demonstrate proficiency in stalking  it's just part of our culture OK‽

I wonder how RP and Dork feel about an accused rapist being on the supreme court...  Or of our very president also having a restraining order against him.

Or if they realize how having a geographic data analyst might come in handy when looking at epidemiological data and the movement of people and the diseases they may carry.
