Scraping COVID19 data using Python

  • Most of the data required to aid innovations may not be available via Application Programming Interface (API) or file formats like ‘.csv’ waiting to be downloaded, but can only be accessed as part of a web page.
  • In this article, we will learn how to scrape COVID19 data depicted below from a web page to a Dask dataframe from the site using python.
  • The above-listed elements, fall into but not limited to these programmable component such as HTML — contain the main content of the page, CSS — add styling to make the page look nicer and lastly JS — JavaScript files add interactivity to web pages.
  • When we perform web scraping, we’re interested in extraction of information from the main content of the web page, which makes a good understanding of HTML important.

Automate Sentiment Analysis Process for Reddit Post: TextBlob and VADER

  • We will be using VADER for sentiment analysis of Reddit comments and topics.
  • Before we start collecting data for sentiment analysis, we need to create a Reddit app.
  • We will be fetching subreddit information such as posts and comments using its functions.
  • The next step is getting data in each subreddit: post title, comments, and replies.
  • Subreddit data required is now available for sentiment analysis.
  • Follow the same procedure for the VADER tool, pass the data, and store the sentiment in sub_entries_nltk.
  • If you print sub_entries_nltk and sub_entries_textblob variable, we will get the total count of positive, negative, and neutral sentiments.
  • In this article, one can learn how to fetch information from Reddit using the PRAW python library and discover the sentiment of subreddit.
  • This article helps you to replicate the entire comment section of the subreddit post and sentiment tag attach with each comment and its replies.

Why posting a black image with the #BLM hashtag today is doing more harm than good

  • While these posts may be well-intended, several activists and influencers have pointed out that posting a blank black image with a bunch of tags clogs up critical channels of information and updates.
  • Two, the actual purpose of posting a black image in the first place.
  • When you post an image with a tag on, say, Twitter or Instagram, it gets automatically added to a searchable feed, which people can find using that tag.
  • It's a common way for people to monitor a situation or interest.
  • And since people have been including the #BlackLivesMAtter tag, in the words of activist Feminista Jones, the protests have been erased from Instagram.
  • However, some people have taken the call to action to mean a pause on posting about personal things or issues unrelated to Black Lives Matter or the ongoing protests rather than complete silence.

How to Use Python and Xpath to Scrape Websites

  • XPath expressions work by defining a “path” to navigate the HTML of a site and select the nodes you need.
  • We’ve set up a “tree” that will allow us to create XPath queries and get the data we want from the saved HTML document.
  • This modification allows our initial XPath expression to filter out all text from the nodes returned by “//p/strong” that have “\xao” which gives us a clean list of quotes.
  • Another feature of XPath allows you to navigate HTML based on the “axes”, or which looks at the relationship of tags.
  • We’ve grabbed all the links by locating the “@href” values from the HTML, but it seems like we’re getting duplicate data.
  • Unlike Python, the index begins at “1” when using XPath expressions, so don’t try to write “[0]” when you want the first element.
