I was looking around the internet to try to learn about promotion and marketing via social media. It is obvious that you want to be able to do it and we are hoping that we shall be able to do it at a very low price. The concept is pretty simple. You try to get the public to help out by repeating your message. I learned that there are places where you can can buy twitter retweets. I am not sure how great a thing that is, because obviously it is going to be highly dependent on who it is saying what you say. If it is some random guy who has no real profile on twitter, then no one is going to care what he says. On the other hand a lot of celebrities are on twitter, because they want to promote themselves and their brands the same way that I do. Continue reading
I just found a new place to live. Ian and I are going to move out of this place next week and we are going to split the cost of a two bedroom place at this apartment complex, http://www.creeksonkirklevington.com. It would be better for me if it was a little closer to the campus, but I am still going to be able to catch the bus and make it to school in a reasonable amount of time. Obviously there is not much point in trying to drive to school, that just leads to an endless waste of time. In fact Ian sold his car and I would be tempted to do the same if I did not need it to go see Anne on the weekends. Continue reading
I own a fairly old house in NYC, and I would like to restore it, so that it looks closer to the way that it did when I was young. It was my parents house, before I became the owner of it, and it has been in the family for awhile. It is kind of rough for the wear these days though, and I need to find a exterior restoration in NYC that will be able to help me to restore my house and get it back into a good condition.
I want to focus on restoring the exterior of the house, because that is what other people will see. It is also the part of the house that has the most problems, and is most in want of a restoration effort. I hope that it will not cost me an awful lot to fix the house up to the extent that I have in mind. Continue reading
It is really a proud feeling to own a home of your own. Most Americans dream about having a home of their own. Some of them accomplish this goal after working hard towards it for many years or decades. For some, this will end up as a never fulfilled dream.
Owning a home of your own is not the end of the journey. Once you spend all that money on a home, you would have to maintain it properly. A heating contractor in Bergen County NJ can play a big part in taking good care of the most valued asset of your life. For most people, their home is the single most valuable investment.
What are the criteria in choosing a heating contractor for your Bergen County, NJ home? The most reliable publicity is word of mouth publicity. If it comes from the mouth of the people who are closest to you, then it would be even better. Thus, you can ask your close family members, reliable friends, honest neighbors etc. for their opinion. They can advise you based on their past experiences. Continue reading
The holy grail of weight loss is a product that is going to help you shed the pounds without you having to do a single thing. It’s what we all want, isn’t it? Who wants to have to sweat and work hard to lose pounds? Who wants to have to push themselves to go to the gym every day just because they want to be able to fit into their Summer bikini? I certainly don’t want to have to do that when I already have so much on my plate. Thanks to Garcinia Cambogia, I think I might have found that.
Now, don’t get me wrong here. I’m not saying that this product is going to work for you as it has worked for me – everyone has a different biochemistry and we’re all going to respond to different herbs, drugs or whatever in various ways. Continue reading
My wife-to-be and I are going to finally get married this summer. It seems like we have been engaged forever. I have been waiting on her to finish school, before we got married. She is about to graduate with a master’s degree, and I am excited for her. I think that it will be a pretty great wedding ceremony, but there are still arrangements to be made, and we are kind of running out of time. I think I am going to hire Doerman photography to take the photographs for the wedding.
I have actually talked to a few people who have used them in the past, and they all seemed to be rather pleased with the results that they got. Further, I have looked at some of their work personally, and I thought it was rather good. Continue reading
When my husband lost his job, we knew that we were going to have to implement some changes. While we had savings that would take care of our major bills for a few months, we were not sure how long it would take for him to find sustainable employment again. I looked at our bills to see if we could cut back on anything, and that is when I realized that I could compare electricity companies in spring tx to see if we were actually paying the lowest amount possible for our energy needs.
When our area was first deregulated, I didn’t really give it much thought because we were already established with the company we had been using for years. Now that there was competition though, I knew that the energy companies would be offering great prices and plans so they would end up with more customers. Continue reading
Home security is a topic that was never really brought up amongst members of my family. We never thought much of it thanks to our luck of living within a gated community. It was only after the fact that we were robbed that we began to realize that no single place was ever going to be safe. Any place is vulnerable, regardless if you have a gated community or not. I started to look into different types of home security companies and found that adt home security might be the best bet for our area. Honestly, I admit that it is kind of odd to have one of those little signs outside our house proclaiming that we are protected by ADT – it’s not that I don’t mind that we now have the security system installed but it feels almost petulant in a way as if we are asking criminals to avoid our house. Continue reading
Hey you think that the company that makes your phone and tablet would have it all together when it comes to an operating system upgrade. However, they make mistakes too. Otherwise, they would not have been releasing a beta version of the OS upgrade. I know they need to work out the kinks, but they are not paying me to endure hassles with something I pay a monthly fee to use. That is why after I upgraded to iOS8 I was going to downgrade ios to be able to go back to the prior version of the operating system that was on my phone.
OS upgrades can be buggy. Well, all operating systems have bugs. New ones can be a particular problem until patches fix those bugs. Continue reading
I got this tip on the opening here from a friend of mine. He works with some accountants in Bristol and his company does the books for these people. Apparently they told him that they had a job opening and he immediately thought of me. It is a very good match for my skills as I did some very similar administrative work with the Royal Marine Corps while I was in the service and recuperating from a parachute jump that went badly. I went down there on my way to work one morning. In fact I just had to get out of bed about ten minutes early. It is literally that close to where I am living. Continue reading
If you have ever worked on a production line, you know that the packaging equipment can make or break your profit margin. If a packaging machine goes down, that is product not going out the door to the retail stores. Even machines that need extensive cleaning between shifts, or when product runs are changed, cause profit loss. Any time that the machines are not putting product into packages is lost money. That is why we were careful about what company we bought our dry fillers from.
Auger filling machines can be especially tricky. You want ones that are extremely reliable. Here at our packaging facility we fill a dry seed product into bags that is for human food grade snacks. We package different seeds, and we do not want to have to spend a lot of time cleaning machines between each product packaging run. Continue reading
My wife and I decided several years ago that we wanted to purchase a home, but we never got around to it until now. She was awarded a large settlement and she used a lot of it for a down payment. She was very adamant about buying an older home, even though this means that there will need to be a lot of work put into it and we plan to start right away. This is the main reason why I am going to hire someone who offers shower enclosures in long island. The one that is there now is very old and damaged. It has also sustained a lot of water damage over the years. I couldn’t possibly imagine taking a shower in the place while looking at something that is old and beat down. Continue reading
I hate it when natural disatster come to my area. There was a really bad storm that came to the neighborhood, and it did a lot of damage to the homes in the area. Everyone was glad that they made it out of the storm safely, but they were devastated to see the damage their homes had faced. The roof of my home was damaged badly, and I had to call a roofing contractor in manhattan ny to fix it.
I know it’s bad for us, but for all of the businesses in the Manhattan area that do a lot of construction and contracting work, they will be receiving a lot of business. Continue reading

- am taking a managerial economics class, and for the final we need to know the F statistic and its relationship to economics. I am not good at stats so if their are other statistical terms used in explaining the F statistic, if you could clarify them that would be great! thanks!
Answer by Tony
Gawd, this is a broad question, made particularly difficult because I don’t know your background. I’ll take a guess and do wot I can.
Consider the “t” statistic. When you wish to compare two sample means or a sample mean against a poopulation, you compute a statistic
(xbar – mu)/sd
or subtract the sample mean from the population mean (or the two sample means from each other), divide by the standard deviation of the mean (usually s.d./sqrt(n)) and get a number. This number is a statistic which has a distribution. That distribution is described or defined as a “t” distribution, and is tabled in the back of most stat textbooks If the number is greater than some given number in the table, then “statistical significance” is claimed.
If the s.d. is KNOWN, then the statistic is described or defined as a “z” or “standard normal” distribution, and you look up the number in the standard normal table.
For many statistical tests, the procedure is the same. You compute some statistic, then compare the result to some theoretical distribution (t, z) to determine if the results you obtained are ‘reasonable”.
Other such distributions are the Chi Square, exponential, binomial, Poisson, etc. Each are used in various cases depending upon the underlying distribution and statistic computed.
From what you wrote, I surmise that you are using the F distribution for some purpose. The typical use of the F distribution is to compare the ratio of two variances–often used for the computational procedure “analysis of variance”. Nuttin “special” about it. If you understand the “t-test”, the exact same logic applies, but instead of looking up the number in a t table, you look it up on an F table.
- Compare ∆f and df
f(x,y) = [e^x] –[y(e^y)]
(a,b) = (0,1)
∆x = .3, ∆y = .01
The answer is ∆f = .2950836; df= .2456344, but how do you get this?
Answer by MAGlCK
f(a,b) = f(0,1) = (e^0) – (1 * (e^1)) = -1.71828183
f(a + ∆x, b + ∆y) = f(0.3,1.01) = (e^.3) – (1.01 * (e^1.01)) = -1.42319822
∆f = f(0,1) – f(0.3,1.01) = (e^.3)-(1.01*(e^1.01)) – ((e^0)-(1*(e^1))) = 0.295083611
Sadly, I do not remember enough from multivariable calculus to determine what df could even stand for in this situation, i’m going to need some help or additional information to finish the second part of this problem. I’m guessing it has something to do with partial derivatives…
My friend always gives me random website links for no reason. Sometimes I call him the human spam bot, because he’ll just send me an email with nothing but a link in it. Most of the time the links are just funny time wasters or short videos. Occasionally he’ll send something like a news story, but he doesn’t send these very often. One day he sent me a link to http://directsavingstv.com and I was very puzzled.
I didn’t quite understand why he would send me a link to a satellite provider. He doesn’t work for a provider, so he couldn’t have been advertising for them. I couldn’t figure out why he sent the link, so I just clicked it for myself. I think my friend sent me the link because he wanted me to see how low the prices for satellite tv are. I have normal television, and I always talk about how the prices for cable and satellite are too high, which is why I don’t have them. Continue reading
With the recent rescheduling of mixed Hydrocodone, it's suddenly become very important for those of us who have been using it as part of our pain management to begin looking into enhancing the management just in case there are issues in having it prescribed to us again. Visiting the doctor every three months for some patients is going to be a hassle but with the right tools and the right plan, I think there are alternatives for us out there. I began visiting a Altamonte Springs Chiropractor pain management specialist who has been able to help me identify the source of my pain.
I've been dependent upon Hydrocodone for several years now and despite the exercises that I had been instructed to do, I found myself being unable to go an entire day pain free which had been the goal from the beginning. If you have lived with pain like this you know how frustrating it is to want to be able to go out and be active with friends and family but you're instead bound by the pain that is restricting your entire life. It's depressing. But with this new pain management program that I'm in I've experienced more success than I ever have.
The first part of the program was to identify the mechanism that caused the pain and from there we explored options as to how I could alleviate it. Once we discovered that it could be alleviated completely we began an exercise program to help stretch those muscles as well exploring massage therapy techniques; luckily it wasn't nerve damage but instead a muscle issue that hadn't ever been correctly exercised after the break in my thigh. I cannot express just how grateful I am to be able to go an entire day without a twinge of pain in my leg!
