Statistical Methods for Halloween

Modified Date 31-Oct-2016 The Raven (Poe), “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,  Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—      While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,  As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.  “’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—              Only this and nothing more.”    Ghouls, ghosts,  goblins, zombies, and ...

Continued Success in Prevention?

Modified Date 18-Sep-2016 As presented we have been exceptionally successful in improving the health of almost all countries and the world.  We have been able to do this as the result of improved agriculture and nutrition, lack of global wars since 1945, and hygiene which attacks the bacteria from our environment. It is difficult to predict what the future holds for prevention.  However, we believe that the future to improve health will be based upon the Internet and hand held devices.  Prevention for the most part is information sharing.  With the Internet and cell phones we can reach any on ...
