Our June magazine is out now in digital formats. In this issue we consider the legacy of Francis Galton, statistical pioneer and eugenicist. How should we best commemorate Galton's statistical achievements while not downplaying or overlooking his disturbing views on race?
Also in this issue, as the Cricket World Cup begins, we delve into the history and development of a game-changing statistical idea: the Duckworth-Lewis method.
- Simon Raper explores the philosophical ideas of Karl Pearson, and his belief that parameters and distributions, not things, are the proper object of scientific study.
- Gian Carlo Di‐Luvi uses text mining to determine the net sentiment of Grammy‐winning Albums of the Year.
- Suzanne Thornton, Brittany Green and Emma Benn offer advice for greater LGBT+ inclusion in statistics and data science.
- R Allan Reese has 'a hole lot of questions' about one of the most dramatic scientific images of our age.
