The Nürnberg Ice Tigers are my favourite hockey team. They have never won the championship, were in the final twice, and have in recent years always played well in the regular season but frequently lost the first round (quarter final) of the play-offs.
Tomorrow, they will play game five of this year's quarter final against the Cologne Sharks. Both teams have won both of their away games so far, and the Ice Tigers are trying to win their first home game tomorrow.
I wrote an AppleScript to extract information from my research library (I use Papers). Result is a histogram of the publication years in my library.
The Copula-Based Geostatistical Code that I have been developing with colleagues over the last couple of years is finally in operational use at the state agency of the environment (LUBW) in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

new paper: by treating measurements below detection limit ("censored measurements") in a statistically meaningful way, we were able to fit measurements to a hydrogeological field site's coneceptual model of degradation pathways along the main direction of flow. With the statistical method we are able to decide true zeros (e.g., no precipiation) and censored measurements.
new paper: statistical algorithm to detect boundary layer separating stationary entities ("macro structure") within one data-set; algorithm verified with real-world data-set at Lauswiesen site; heterogeneity within macro structure ("micro structure") is modeled with fitted multivariate Gaussian model and v-copula model with parameters estimated from data; effects of resulting four scenarios on solute transport were evaluated;
thoughts on closed and open solutions for writing; there are alternatives, e.g., micro-blog as a substitute for Twitter

Calculating distances is a fundamental task in geostatistics. Generally, nearby values are likely to be more similar than pairs of points that are separated by a large distance. This fundamental property is considered in second order based methods as well as in many other flavours of geostatistics, including copulas. Even more, calculating distances is equally important in other disciplines, such as machine learning (see blog randomlydistributed
