It looks like “Black Swan” with Natalie Portman is well ahead of Jesse Eisenberg’s “The Social Network.” And if we consider the fact that “127 Hours,” which features James Franco, is in second place for movies, we might instead choose Franco for Best Actor.What do you think? Can social media mentions predict the outcome of this weekend’s Oscar Awards? Will Franco and Portman take it away, with Black Swan leaving with Best Picture? Or are the graphs telling the truth and showing a landslide vote for Jesse Eisenberg? Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting mike melanson When it comes to predicting the future, we don’t need a crystal ball anymore. These days, we just need to look at how people act online – what they share with their friends on Facebook and Twitter – to predict things like box office success or the stock market. With that in mind, we’re here to see if some social media statistics and science can help us call some Oscar winners a couple days early.

Parent company Clearspring has leveraged this popularity to gather some data and show what films, actors and actresses are getting the most buzz in the month leading up to the Oscar Awards.First, a little background. About six months back, HP Lab’s Bernardo Huberman released a study titled “Predicting the Future with Social Media.” According to Huberman, “social media content can be used to predict real-world outcomes.”“We use the chatter from Twitter.com to forecast box-office revenues for movies,” wrote Huberman in the study’s introduction. “We show that a simple model built from the rate at which tweets are created about particular topics can outperform market-based predictors. We further demonstrate how sentiments extracted from Twitter can be further utilized to improve the forecasting power of social media.”Let’s look at the most recent buzz, according to Clearspring: Related Posts Tags:#Statistics#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… If we look at this alone, the obvious conclusion would be that Jesse Eisenberg is going to run away with the award for Best Actor, but his recent appearance on Saturday Night Live might be something to keep in mind.

Fresh mobilisation of troops and arrest of around 30 Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) members and JKLF chief Yasin Malik in late-night raids triggered tension and hysteria in Kashmir on Saturday, with people lining up outside petrol pumps, ATMs and grocery shops.The clampdown on separatists started on Friday night when JKLF chief Yasin Malik was arrested and shifted to a police station around 11 p.m.Later, in multiple raids, the police rounded up 30 members of the socio-religious group JeI, including its chief Dr. Abdul Hamid Fayaz, spokesman Zahid Ali, former secretary general Ghulam Qadir Lone and Anantnag head Abdur Rouf. However, a JeI spokesman, on the condition of anonymity, said around 150 members were rounded up in the crackdown.100 CAPF companiesA police statement said the move was made ahead of the arrival of an Election Commission team in Kashmir on March 5 “to assess the situation and to take a call on holding polls”. “We took some measures to ensure peaceful elections,” said the police.The multiple raids also coincided with the airlifting of 100 additional companies of security forces to J&K — including 45 companies of CRPF, 35 of the Border Security Force, 20 of the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) and 10 of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).An official said the BSF and the ITBP will replace “static security forces” manning the streets and stationed in bunkers and the CRPF personnel will be on a standby for handling any law and order situation.A government order on Friday also cancelled the leave of all officials in the State. Many scheduled government functions have been postponed.The developments sparked a wave of chaos and uncertainty in the Kashmir valley. Petrol pumps, grocery shops and ATMs witnessed unprecedented rush.“Article 35A is coming up for hearing in the Supreme Court and unscheduled troops mobilisation has taken place. We cannot ignore these developments. We have stocked up essentials to meet any eventuality,” said Nazeer Ahmad, a trader at Polo View.Many parts of the Valley witnessed a spontaneous shutdown and violent clashes. .“People in the Valley, especially the cities and towns, are taking everything said or done as a sign that some big trouble is just around the corner. People are hoarding food and fuel. Some government orders are adding to the sense of panic,” said former chief minister and National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah.Meanwhile, the separatist grouping Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik, termed the arrests as “arbitrary”.“We strongly condemn this dictatorial policy of cracking the whip and arbitrary arrests. Article 35A is linked to our very existence and connected to the Kashmir dispute. We will oppose any move to dilute it,” Mr. Geelani and the Mirwaiz said in a joint statement, calling for a shutdown on Sunday against the detentions.The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peoples Conference and CPI(M) also opposed the government crackdown on activists. “I fail to understand such an arbitrary move which will only precipitate matters in J&K. Under what legal grounds are their arrests justified? You can imprison a person but not his ideas,” said PDP president Mehbooba Mufti.“Largescale arrests took place in 1990. Leaders were ferried to Jodhpur and many jails across the country. Things worsened. This is a tried, tested and failed model. Please desist from it. It won’t work. Things will worsen,” said PC chief Sajad Lone.CPI(M) leader M.Y. Tarigami said the crackdown and arrests “without any solid legal grounds do not augur well”. “It just exacerbates the anger and gives rise to further uncertainty,” he said. read more
