Wes, do you have a NON-snu email account?

Mine is: [email protected]

Gmail is a great email site, as it is free, and you can do a "search" on a term, name, something you wrote about months / years ago, and it comes up instantly .... better than any other SEARCH on any other emailer, that I know of .... go to GOOGLE page and you can join GMAIL ...

How did you find Analytic Bridge?

I was asked by StatSoft, last April, to "join for StatSoft" and manage this "social networking site". Our Marketing people are managing the others, like FACEBOOK and TWITTER ..........

AB is only a group of about 5,000 people, a small niche of "data analysts" looking towrad the "modern predictive anlaytics" [e.g. Statistical Learning Theory, only generally available for data analysts since about 2001, is "more accurate" than our "traditional p-value statistics", that which has been used for most medical research studies [for example] over the pat 60 years............meaning MUCH of this medical research, probably 85% by a U Ohio - Dept of Epidemiology study, needs to be "thrown in the waste basket" ...........I use these Data Mining algorithms about 80% of the time in overseeing our Medical Residents research projects at IHI here in Tulsa, but it has taken me about 5 years to get the "attending Faculty on board" ... the publication of the HANDBOOK certainly gave credibility .... have you seen it? has LInda shown you the HANDBOOK? Here's Publisher link:http://www.elsevierdirect.com/product.jsp?isbn=9780123747655m where you can click on 5 minute video done by co-author John Elder [ all 3 authors are born-again Christians .... interesting combination]; and google it on AMAZON to find the reviews.

IF we could ONLY get SNU interested ..... if SNU had made use of the "predictive analytics", given them FREE by StatSoft, in the ADMINISTRAITON, they could have build models to act upon, preventing or mostly preventing the downturn in SNU student population of the past few years ... .I challenged the administration to do such ... but of course, they just "don't seem to get it" ....... but I think you know the story, Wes ...... Linda says you are like her, wanting to "retire each and every day", planing your next career in HOUSE INSPECTIONS ...... I'll have to forward you our SON Matt's possible "maintenance career", brought about by my foresight / intuition in planting grapes on our Minnesota Property 5 years ago, gettingthe first full crop this fall .. Matt wanted to pick, so we went up to MN and did so on Saturday Sept 12 .... I wanted to stop at 5 pm, and go to a birthday party for the wise of my "grape mentor" at Janesville, MN ... but MATT said "Focus, we came here to pick the grapes, and I WANT ALL OF THEM PICKED ...." at 7:55 PM, beginning to get dark, I picked the LAST WHITE VARIETY; Matt said "you'll be glad you did ... I don't want get back to Tulsa and have you say 'I wish we'd picked those LA CROSSE GRAPES" ..... Well, I AM happy .... I really didn't think I liked La Crosse, BUT upon racking that variety after its "fermentation", it seemed just like the "superb one done by an Australian Vinter running the IOWA WINE COOPERATIVE just south of Des Moines ...' .....NOW this is NAZARENE CONFIDENTIAL .........
Linda made GRAPE JAM out of several varieties, and the vineyards she and her sibs run in Lawrence, KS are for 'GRAPE JAM - FARMER'S MARKETS and for SELLING" . -:)
