My name is Wes. I’m currently figuring out career stuff/life plans. I’m relatively new to the EA (I started interacting with it July 12, 2023)
Capacity Market 2023: Phase 2 proposals and 10 year review—GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
I’m currently working on an article about QALYs per life saved (effectivealtruism.org), which would include measurements and a bunch of different values (e.g. 1 USD given to GWWC is [x] lives saved, [y] QALYs, etc). This might be relevant
Maybe reach out to new institutions, possibly via Linkedin, even if they don’t have job opportunity listings, as they might find that it would take too long to make those listings, are too busy, or might not have listed them for other reasons. It also likely heavily reduces competition.
Thanks! I’ll look at it. Happy first comment, BTW!

Do you plan to change how these measurements impact your decisions?
Alright, I edited it. Did I miss anything?
It is useful. I wish the page I linked cited sources, and when I find sources, I will mention them. I will also edit the text accordingly.
How do these measurements impact your decisions?
If so, how and why?
Do you plan to change what you measure?
Why aren’t they publicly available?
Which ones do you measure that are not publically available?
Where can I find them(Please be specific)?
What are all the measurements of charities(e.g., QALYs per dollar, lives saved per dollar, CO2 removed from the atmosphere per dollar, etc.) that you have publically available?
No, but thank you for pointing this out! I’ll edit the question.
I think Giving what We Can evaluates these evaluators, and (I think) will Finnish evaluating all of them come 2024.
I imagine there is little benefit to killing a bug and a high cost(around 2 weeks to 30 Years of life lost) to killing a bug, though it depends on the species and environment in which you spotted the bug(s). If it’s in your home, I recommend trying to trap it (maybe by putting a see-through container over the bug, slipping something under the container so the bug can’t crawl out, carrying the container and bottom to the trash can, and throwing it away?) and put it in the trash(Unless your garbage gets crushed by dumpster trucks and/or factories with tremendous force), as the bug will have access to plenty of nooks & crannies, as well as food, and won’t bother you.
If there’s a bug infestation, I think you could, in order of what I imagine has the highest value first and lowest last, do the best available option of the following options:
a) if it’s not bothering you too much, leave it. It would take your time and the bug’s time to figure out how to leave, and you shouldn’t do it if no one gains from it. b) Hire someone to get rid of them humanely(only if you’re in a bug-tolerant environment(e.g., Not somewhere where it floods often). c) move locations. d) if none of the others work, do b).
