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
I come from a fairly religious family, and it is unfortunate, because it has left me without a lot of knowledge about sex, and the risks of having it. I was not allowed to take sexual education class with the rest of my class, because my parents would not allow it. They thought such information would corrupt my mind. Anyway, it would have been nice to know more about sex and the risks. Because, now I am going to need to find a herpes cure, if I am ever going to make up for the mistakes that I have made out of ignorance to the risks of sexually promiscuous behavior.
I did not know anything about sexually transmitted diseases, for the most part, when I was entering into high school. I guess I would have known a lot more, if I had taken a class on sexual education. Anyway, due to my lack of knowledge, I probably put myself in more risky situations than I should have.

There is a lot of thought that you should put into picking your hosting provider for your website. Do not just go for the one with the coolest sounding name. Also, look into what those low priced web hosts are truly offering. If you get one with a lousy Control Panel, you will be sorry you ever went with them. This is why I took the time to go to http://www.top10webhosting.com/cpanel.php. I wanted to get a feel for what the Control Panels offered at the various hosts. You might know it as a cPanel.
The cPanel is where you control everything about your website files, scripts and the under-the-hood stuff of your domain. You want full control, easy access and no hassles. 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
I ride on our property to monitor fences and livestock. My dad and grandfather still use horses to check fence lines and our livestock. I use a motorcycle. It gets me everywhere on the property fast. The rides can be brutal on the dirtbikes I have, and that is why I get parts from http://www.sidewindersprockets.com. I end up replacing OEM chains and sprockets before the first ride. I have been stuck miles out into the acreage we own before and it is no fun.
I keep three bikes in tip top shape with the products I order online at http://www.sidewindersprockets.com. I ordered a new chain and sprocket kit for each bike before I brought it home. 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
We decided that the trip was probably a bit too long for a car like ours. It is just going to be EMily, myself, a three year old child and a newly born child of 17 weeks, but of course those kids require all sorts of stuff. Patty is able to go to the big girl potty and she behaves herself extremely well. I guess we got lucky, but she hates long car trips. We decided to check out the car rental promotion deals and get something bigger than our car for the week. We looked at the passenger vans, but what we got was a sport utility vehicle, but one of the more fuel efficient ones. Continue reading
- What are those flare-looking things that F-4 Phantoms dropped in the vietnam war, like napalm or something? It was in a scene in forrest gump. What else did f-4s do for ground support?
In forrest gump, Lt. Dan called in an airstrike, then the f-4s came in and dropped those things, so the’yre not actually flares.
Here’s the forrest gump scene, (scroll to 6:45) – http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZmIltbuTIC4

- 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
