Julia Kindt writes for the Eidolon
At first glance, the realm of scientific polling, forecasting, and modeling of future scenarios seems worlds away from that of inspired divination as it prevailed in ancient Greece and Rome. The former draws on calculations of probability and likelihood, while the latter claims to disclose a predetermined divine fate.

We congratulate Dane on his nomination! The award ceremony will be held on 28 April, 2017.
