2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

I`m searching for a grant, a fellowship or even a job so that I can work on some of this initiatives that I have,
and that I consider that are useful tools for journalists from all around the world.

Some of the projects that I did until now are :

Scrapping Facebook, identifying fake viral news, before they go viral

Extracting timeline data about any topic on Facebook.
Example : analyzing Protest trends in Romania from 2012 to 2017, using facebook data

This can be also applied to fb comments, identifying trolls, etc

Another project that I did in the was scraping the whole medium.com website

And after that I started doing articles about different categories and tags
