  1. Brandi and Captain Tom had a baby?http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article1273232.ecehttp://dlisted.com/node/26494 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fetus_in_fetu
  2. John Stewart absolutely shredded Obama for his stumbling in the debate this week. It must've been bad if Stewart was piling on.And from Obama's appearance on the Colbert Report:
  3. One of the best things I've ever read on this forum. Without knowing her, it seems like Brandi was drawn into the poker world because she considered herself capable of manipulating men, especially men with money who crave attention from beautiful women more than the typical LA stockbroker. Unfortunately she didn't understand the depths of degeneracy in the poker world, nor did she apparently understand what was going on inside her own head. While she thought she was working these men, the reality is that many of the people in her world were newly rich and had no problem shelling out a few buck
  4. As a college professor who's caught kids plagiarizing before - yeah, don't be stupid. It NEVER goes well for the student, especially now with things like iLearn and turnitin.com it's easy to even catch people who are using someone else's report.
  5. Mine falls into the cracks of my couch. I usually get pissed about it, wonder where it could possibly be and curse myself for being stupid enough to lose the remote when it couldn't have gone that far away from the TV, and then after three or four days think to myself "I bet it fell into the cracks of the couch for the 912th time." Sure enough there it is and I move on.
  6. Exactly - he's always been absolutely horrible on SNL, but it works for some odd reason. Look back at the famous cowbell skit, he's 100% awful in it. I've always thought he goes on there and does a Christopher Walken impression, and that was the joke.
  7. Would it be better if you were intently focused on the women's college basketball game?
  8. That thread scares me. It is a lot of reading and I just want to watch you kick somebody in the nuts please.
  9. You had me at "It's a dry heat."
  10. It very well could be z-scoring. That's my initial thought, and I think it fits with what most political scientists would be comfortable with. I think I might need to come up with another distribution though...my problem is that I know enough to be dangerous with this stuff, but not enough to really be good.
  11. Let me give a little background on what the plot means before I get into the hypothesis test so I can explain what I'm doing here. I'm certainly open to any suggestions on where I've gone wrong.So the X Axis represents distance between the target word and the word "American." Words with small distances are related, words with large distances are unrelated. So the basic hypothesis is that "we" and "American" are related words (have a small distance)The picture represents the distribution of distances between American and all other words in the corpus. My thoughts: There are a couple different w
  12. So I'm thinking z-scoring is not the way to go...I'm trying to come up with a hypothesis test for this problem, so I'll take any suggestions of places to look.(I took stats for political scientists...we're even below the psych folks) ;)Edit: It's not a homework assignment so there are no real guidelines. Just something that's accurate and tests that the distances are significantly different from each other.
  13. So it's calculated in exactly the same way? If it's not normally distributed there are different percentages of the data on each side of the mean - doesn't a standard deviation mean more on the right side of the mean than the left?
