...1. (20 pt) Go to http://www.stat.tamu.edu/~west/ph/sampledist.html. Use a skewed distribution. Take 1000 samples of sizes 2, 10 and 100. Construct a mean for each sample and look at the distribution of the sample means (third row). Record the mean and SD in the population for the original random variable. Make a table and record the mean of the means, and the standard deviation of the mean for each sample size (2, 10 and 100). For a bell-shaped distribution we showed that the mean of the sample means is very similar to the mean in the population for all population sizes. This is the property of unbiasedness. From your results, does the mean appear to be unbiased when the original distribution of the data is skewed? For a bell-shaped distribution we showed that the standard deviation of the mean, or the standard error of the mean, decreases with sample size. Is this true for skewed distributions? Calculate the standard error of the mean that is expected for each sample size and record in the table. How did the observed result compared to your calculation? * * Mean of the Population: 15.5297 * Median of the Population: 12.2861 * Standard Deviation of the Population: 12.5078 * * Sample Size | * Mean of the means | * Standard Deviation | * Standard Error of the Mean | * 2 | * 15.7741 | * 8.8115 | * 6.23067 | * 10 | * 15.4568 | * 3.847 | * 1.21653 | * 100 | * 15.5223 | * 1.2636 | * 0.12636 | * ...

...the product is what it is selling for, but if I pay so much for the item I would like to have it around for a while. If I am able to have it around for a while then it’s worth the money. Clothes are like car, wanting something reliable to get to A to B, like warm than cold. So positioning the product as a product that stands its claim from advertisement to the closet or where ever they are placed is a claim that I would use to sell the product. If I can do this then a lot would not care about pricing, and place to get the items or products. Positioning something is hard because to many factors to worry about and choosing the right strategy to up lift the brand or product is important. I can see being worried about the price of a product or where to get the product but the product itself is what people want and people want a reliable product. The demographics these days are changing like the market changes. Being that demographics revolve around people because people make up the market as well, there are many views of this description or outlook of what the possibilities are allowing the market to become. When people are young they are usually were bought items, things they want and most the time it’s something that is new or what everybody seem to have, or just may have their own interest in a certain item. As people get older things change because they now want what they want and have to get it, which changes the market again as well. Peoples interest in items change as......

Smartphones Dumb People

...Technology: Smart Phones, Dumb People In today’s society technology is ever present, it constantly evolves and adapts to suit our everyday needs. While technology does have positive effects for humanity there are many adverse effects which specifically target the most impressionable members of our society, our youth. Children of today have constant access to multiple forms of technology throughout the day. However, a child’s interactions with a tablet or smartphone are seldom found to be a problem in the eyes of their parent. Reports of severe, long lasting health issues associated with technology are a staple in the news and media. While an adult may complain about his/her “Carpal Tunnel Syndrome” as a result of a day of rigorous Facebooking, a child may be enduring long lasting health issues from the same level of interaction. If we continue to turn a blind eye to our nation’s youth then we are not only doing a disservice to them, but to ourselves. One of the major issues I think the majority of people we know are all guilty of is Texting. Texting for those who don’t know (or have been under a rock in the last ten years) is the ability to send a short message composed of text to a device such as a smartphone, tablet, etc. For most texting is a primary form of communication. It doesn't seem bad at a glance, people text all the time, while they're walking, in class, and even while driving. What harm could come of a small message? The National Highway Traffic Safety......

Is Texting Making Us Dumb?

...Ashley Fuell Marissa Campbell English 121 May 6, 2014 Is Texting Making Us Dumb? Almost everyone I know over the age of twelve years old owns a cellphone and uses it to communicate through text message. Add to that the large amount of people who use email and social media, and it’s clear that we depend a lot on technology to communicate with each other. In order to make these methods more efficient and immediate, a form of tech speak has developed and due to frequent, constant use, has begun to creep into the school classrooms. Tech speak is a form of slang that shortens words to make text messaging faster. It also includes emoticons, a way of using punctuation marks to make a picture of a face or whatever the user wants to form. Technology is making us bad spellers with the use of spell checkers and autocorrect. This texting lingo is also damaging our youth’s written language skills because students are finding it increasingly difficult to switch between using tech speak and proper grammar. Further, texting is hindering students’ abilities to focus in class, hurting their grades. Finally, college entrance officers are reporting application essays with tech speak and acronym shortcuts being submitted by prospective students that end up causing the student to be denied entrance to the college. Tech speak is becoming increasingly more evolved and complex in its own way. Students who use tech speak, or texting lingo, tend to ignore punctuation and capitalization rules,......

...Outline The overall objective of this research paper is to identify and address those aspects of alcoholism, which contribute to it as a medical disease. True, alcoholism has many ramifications for society as well as the economy, but the focus of this paper shall be, for the most part, on the medical aspects. In the way of background, alcoholism refers to the drinking of alcoholic beverages to such a degree that major aspects of the individual’s life -such as work, school, family relationships or personal SAFETY AND HEALTH, above all, are seriously and repeatedly interfered with. Alcoholism is considered a disease, meaning that it follows a characteristic course with known physical, psychological, and social systems. The alcoholic continues to consume alcohol despite the destructive consequences. Alcoholism is serious, progressive, and irreversible.          If not treated, it can be fatal. It is generally thought that once the disease has developed, the alcoholic will not drink normally again. An alcoholic who abstains from drinking, however, can regain control over the aspects of life with which ALCOHOL interfered. The alcoholic is then said to be “recovering” not “cured” of the disease. It is important to note that the particular symptoms and pattern of DRINKING PROBLEMS may vary with the individual. ALCOHOLISM is, therefore, a very complex disorder, and it is this very complexity which has led some recent researchers to question the accuracy of the disease concept of......

...3.1.4 Private torrents * 3.1.5 Merkle trees * 4 Examples * 4.1 Single file * 4.2 Multiple files * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 External links Background Typically, internet access is asymmetrical, supporting greater download speeds than upload speeds, limiting the bandwidth of each download, and sometimes enforcing bandwidth caps and periods where systems are not accessible. This creates inefficiency when many people want to obtain the same set of files from a single source; the source must always be online and must have massive outbound bandwidth. The BitTorrent protocol addresses this by decentralizing the distribution, leveraging the ability of people to network "peer-to-peer", among themselves. Each file to be distributed is divided into small information chunks called pieces. Downloading peers achieve rapid download speeds by requesting multiple pieces from different computers simultaneously in the swarm. Once obtained, these pieces are usually immediately made available for download by others in the swarm. In this way, the burden on the network is spread among the downloaders, rather than concentrating at a central distribution hub or cluster. As long as all the pieces are available, peers (downloaders and uploaders) can come and go; no one peer needs to have all the chunks, or to even stay connected to the swarm in order for distribution to continue among the other peers. A small torrent file is created to represent a file......

Bearing in Mind Gaskell's Desire to "...Give Some Utterance to the Agony Which from Time to Time Convulsed This Dumb People, " How Effective Is "Mary Barton" in Its Attempt to Move the Reader Through Its Depiction of Working Class Struggles.

...agony which from time to time convulsed this dumb people," how effective is "Mary Barton" in its attempt to move the reader through its depiction of working class struggles. Elizabeth Gaskell's main purpose of the novel is to bring to light the struggles that are faced by the poor. Gaskell does this through the use of descriptive language and also by presenting a number of themes through certain characters, such as a belief of injustice in the industrial working class. As a female writer, there is much criticism against her for writing a novel so out of depth of her class and gender. However, even with this criticism Gaskell still brings to light key socio-political issues, such as the need for the worker and employer to understand each other. The era in which "Mary Barton" is written is known as the Time of Troubles. During a period of prosperity from 1832 to 1836 during the industrial revolution, Gaskell's experience of these conditions are sensed strongly in the narrative, in particular her contact with the working class in her home city of Manchester, as she "elbows" the working class everyday on the streets. This historic document therefore brings you closer to the struggles of the working class, as suggested by Gaskell: "The more I reflected on this unhappy state of things...as the employers and employed must be, the more anxious I became to give some utterance to the agony." It can be argued that Gaskell does not achieve this and instead removes you slightly from......

...Often we hear the phrase, "promote from within" as one of the best ways to expand the talent pool. Yet sometimes firms do not post internal openings for which anyone may apply.  Instead, they select someone to promote. Why might a firm do this and what drawbacks could result? On the other hand, some firms prefer to look outside the company to increase the talent pool, including posting information on social networking sites.  What are the benefits of using social media for recruitment? A firm might want to “promote from within” because the company wants to attract their employees. Every ones want to work for a company where they will have the opportunities of promotion. This will encourage people to work harder because they want to go up on that ladder of employment. Also, “promote from with in” helps company save time and money on hiring any position. Company will not have to pay the advertising fee, won’t have to read a bunch of applications, and won’t have to interview lots of people. Another plus thing is when you promote someone from with in, that person already knows well about the company and how things work, so they don’t have to spend a lot of times to learn about the company culture and stuffs, which may lowers their performance for the first couple weeks like employees that are hired from outside of the company might. So “promote from with in is a great way to strengthen your company with out having to spend too much to find the perfect candidates. However,......

Ambivalent Sexism and Dumb Blonde Jokes

...Ambivalent Sexism and Dumb Blonde Jokes Eryn Haygood Oklahoma State University Diversity can be defined as individuals interacting with different races, nationalities, religions and gender to create a group, organization or community. A diverse organization is an organization that values the variance in people. It identifies that people with different attitudes, backgrounds, experiences, and skills bring in new ideas and opinions. Diverse organization also promotes and join these differences to make everything related and welcoming. These types of organizations have the widest range of views and skills so it can help the need of change for the people who are involved. Diversity encourages and benefits society. In the study of Greenwood and Isbell had three goals that they wanted to complete in their study. The first goal, they wanted to explore a certain sexist joke which are the dumb blonde jokes. These type of jokes are unpleasant to women and extremely known and accepted “form of disparaging humor” (Greenwood et al., 2002). They wanted to know how the reactions of women to these jokes would find out the degree of sexist attitudes. There next goal was to determine the line of sexist humor and ambivalent sexism. The dumb blond jokes may show a result to conflicted heterosexual ambivalence so, hostile and ambivalent sexist might react different to these types of jokes. Hostile sexist may like the jokes more than benevolent sexists and with ambivalent sexist may more......

Young and Dumb

...Young and Dumb A cow can be a friendly or scary animal. Both personalities I have come in contact with. Just because some of them look cute or friendly, doesn’t mean that they will always be nice. Also remember that they are always hungry and no matter what, food is always on their mind. During one boring afternoon when I was about ten years old, I decided to go outside and play with our “pet” cows that we had raised since they were calves. Even though I was young, I told my parents that I would be fine to go out alone. My mother did not want any part of it but I insisted that I would be fine by myself. As I walked through the gate of the pin something didn’t seem normal. We also had a dog named Peanut that stayed in the same pin with the cows. Normally she liked to stay around them but this time she was on the other side of the field. I seemed to notice that the cows were acting more aggressive than normal. I thought in my head that I might have made a mistake by going out alone. As I tried to go near the cows they started charging at me. I assumed they were looking for food because it was getting to the time of day we usually feed them. Suddenly I had to start running because if not, I more than likely would have gotten trampled by two massive cows. I soon headed for the barn running as fast as I could possibly go to look for safety. “Locked, why is the door locked!” I said to myself as I was running around the barn in a frantic. We always had a bucket sitting outside......

To open a file in a stack, just click the file once. Mac OS X Leopard includes two pre-made stacks called Documents and Downloads. You opened this file from the Documents stack. The Documents stack is a great place to keep things like presentations, spreadsheets, and word processing files. You can drag and drop files to the stack or save them to the stack when you save a document in an application. Documents Stacks automatically display their contents in a fan or grid based on the number of items in the Stack. If you prefer one style over the other, you can set the stack to always open in that style. Stacks intelligently show the most relevant items first or you can set the sort order to make sure the items you care about most always appear at the top of the stack. To customize a stack, position the pointer over the stack icon and then hold down the mouse button until a menu appears. To delete a file from a stack, just open the stack and drag the item you wish to remove to the Trash. In fact, when you’re done reading this document, feel free to throw it out.

...longer an inertial reference frame until you either stop or continue at a different steady speed. Example of an object having large inertia: USS Nimitz: Length: 332m (1092 feet) Beam (width): 40.8m (134 feet) Mass: 86,183,000 kg (190 million pounds) Speed: 15 meters/second (34 mph) We suspect this object, having a large mass, would strongly resist a change in its motion. So if the carrier is moving at 34 mph and shuts its engines down, how far will it drift? A thousand feet? A mile? In turns out that the stopping distance (in a smooth sea) would be about 32 km (20 miles), if no active measures are taken to stop the forward motion of the carrier (such as reversing the engines). Video clips demonstrating inertia of large objects: 1. Speed 2: final scene of cruise ship crashing into dock. 2. The Lost World (Jurassic Park 3): similar scene towards end of film where ship crashes into dock. 3. Star Trek: TNG: "Nemesis": scene near end where Enterprise rams alien spacecraft. Newton's 2nd Law: the Law of Proportionality The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force and inversely proportional to its mass. This is more readily expressed mathematically: Here, F = the force on the object (in units of Newtons), m = the object's mass (in kilograms), and a = the resulting acceleration (in units of meters per second per second, or meters/second2). Key points: 1. A force that results in an object......

...beyond debates and discourse as the city council here is poised to declare MCC’s Myke Sotero and two others who officiated the wedding as persona non grata and is contemplating a case against them. “The same sex unions have only popularized the issue all the more,” said former Baguio chief prosecutor Erdolfo Balajadia, who now sits on the 14-member city council here. “I cannot see (the filing of a case having) any legal leg to stand on. It was a religious rite, not a civil rite that was officiated,” he said. Sotero said more and more couples are applying to be wed after the much-publicized weddings. This early, at least 50 couples from Manila have already expressed their desire to have their union solemnized. Fighting discrimination But lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender (LGBTs) are fighting back and highlighting discrimination as the main issue. “This is no longer about the mass wedding. It’s already about discrimination,” Carol Galvez of the Lesbian for National Democracy (LESBOND) said, vowing to bring the matter to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights if necessary. LESBOND echoed their call for an end to discrimination in the country, especially from the local government and certain religious groups. She argued that the Magna Carta for Women that “protects your mothers, wives, sisters and daughters” also protects them. The Baguio Pride Network (BPN), meanwhile, expressed alarm over the pronouncements of Baguio-Benguet Vicariate......
