Bayesian methods for making inferences about physical systems that combine information from computer simulators and system observations have become increasingly well studied. We apply some of these methods to the policy problem where the decisions to be made are inputs to the computer model. Particular features of our methodologies include: the provision of Bayesian decision support for the policy problem when it is known that policy may be adapted in reaction to future observations of the complex system; and careful integration of the knowledge that our computer simulators will evolve and improve over time, which may affect downstream strategies and, hence, current policy.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey has said all season long that the something is defense. Toronto ranks 17th in the NBA in defensive efficiency, allowing 106.2 points per 100 possessions. Casey knows that won’t be close to good enough when they get into the playoffs to try to build off of last year’s run to the Eastern Conference finals..
It averages 166 million daily active users, compared to 229 million for Snapchat, 500 million for Instagram or 1.66 billion for the most popular social network, Facebook.Verizon Media (which includes TechCrunch, the Huffington Post and AOL), Amazon, Apple, the Weather Channel and even PayPal get way more traffic than Twitter.So why are we all talking about Twitter? You can thank President Donald Trump for putting Jack Dorsey’s social platform on the front page, due to his heated war of words and deeds with the internet company.It has an outsize influence that resonates far beyond the people who visit. “Twitter has a small user base of a few hundred million, but its reach is to billions, as the content is shared and embedded in global media,” says Jeremiah Owyang, an analyst with Kaleido Insights.To recap, Twitter put a “Get the Facts,” warning label on a tweet by the president, which claimed mail in ballots would produce election fraud. Trump responded the next day by signing an executive order which, by his own admission,will get tested by the courts.On Friday, Twitter escalated it further, by blocking a Trump tweet that called Minneapolis rioters “thugs,” and threatened to have them shot, saying it glorified violence.
