It was refreshing to hear. But then again, I still need rest. Coz three weeks of non-stop segmentation work has taken a serious toll on my recovery.

1-tailed or 2-tailed

Nakakatuwa talaga pag ang mga geeks eh nagdedebate. Labasan ng mga evidentiary (may term bang ganito?) supports! Todo research agad sa internet at labas ng mga nagkakapalang libro. At pag hindi pa rin nagkasundo eh tawag na sa lifeline. Thanks ulit Wendz! Anyways, the question is: ano ba mas strict? 1-tailed or 2-tailed tests?! Thanks Pepsi for giving us the chance to review our rusty statistical test theories. LOL

So ano nga bang sagot? 2-tailed tests are stricter. Why? According to Sir Wendz, 1-tailed tests are just directional. In order to reject the null hypothesis, we have to prove just one scenario: either mu1 is greater than or less than mu2. But in 2-tailed tests, you have to prove both. You have to prove that mu1 is less than AND at the same time greater than mu2. By then it's safe to say that both means are statistically different. Hmm. Tama ba Wendz? Patay baka ibalik ako sa Stat115 nito haha.

If you want to test the difference of two means or proportions at 95% level of significance using 1-tailed, then  just test it at 90% level of significance at 2-tailed. Same goes if you want to test parity of two means using 1-tailed test, then test it at 80% level of significance using 2-tailed.

There you go, my very first Stat-is-Geek entry. Will try to post more. Maybe about survey and sampling so that presidentiables like Gordon can shut the hell up! Hindi ako galit. Hindi po talaga!. LOL

be a PPCRV volunteer

Last 2004 national elections, I spent my election day volunteering for NAMFREL. It was so unusual for me but since my friends did the same, I decided to join too. Yes it was tiring. We started around lunch time, I think, and ended during the wee hours in the morning the next day. We even had some rough times with teachers and poll watchers since we made sure that every canvass report tallies with the votes counted. It was volunteer work so no allowances (only snacks in the afternoon) and yet it was really worth it. In our small way we've done our country a favor...

And I'm doing it again this year! Though under PPCRV this time. Hope you can join me and do something for our country. Click here if you want to volunteer!

My mistake. NAMFREL still needs volunteers too. Click here if you want to be a NAMFREL volunteer instead.

pbbte: teen clash 2010

So nagstart na naman ang kaadikan ko. Though I'm doubting if I'll be supporting this the same way I supported PBB Double Up.

So, any bets this early?! Stay tuned nightly @  ABS-CBN.

happy easter

Easter is considered the most important day for Catholics. Yes, more important than Christmas. 'Coz today marks the rebirth of Christ after sacrificing his life to save us from our sins. So it's just appropriate for us to celebrate this day by renewing our faith.

Today also marks the rebirth of this blog. The past months have been rough on me and my blogging. But today, I will try to get back to blogging and share stuffs like gadgets, views, etc. So join me in my latest quest...
