Fact Checker and more research sites

Speaking of fact checkers, interesting 'About' page on the Washington Post's Fact Checker blog, including an explanation of methodology and profiles of Michael Dobbs, the Fact Checker, and chief researcher Alice Crites.

Always good to see a news researcher getting deserved credit.

In other news research news, just a few research links came up this week:

  • The Business of Football: NFL Team Valuations, annual report from Forbes.
  • Global Health Facts from Kaiser Family Foundation.
  • Digital Globe imagery will be enhanced with launch of a new satellite; Resourceshelf links to sites that use satellite images from Digital Globe. More aerial image links, including street views from France, from an earlier posting.
  • Florida School Board Links from Joe Adams. Get agendas, meeting minutes, etc.
  • The Law Library of Congress has been redesigned with new features such as the beginning of a digitized library of Congressional hearings.
  • Terrorism Database Penn's International Center for the Study of Terrorism includes a global database of social and behavioral science researchers who work on, or whose work is directly relevant to terrorism, in Excel format.
