When Justin Bassett interviewed for a new job, he expected the usual questions about experience and references. So he was astonished when the interviewer asked for something else: his Facebook username and password.
Bassett, a New York City statistician, had just finished answering a few character questions when the…Continue

Most banks are going to add small fees e.g. for debit card ($3/month in my case). Last time I went to my bank, I had this strange conversation:
One of my friends (referred to as the patient) holds a Ph.D. degree in statistics and has been affected with a common skin condition for more than 20 years, known as rosacea (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001882/).

This study involves only one patient. But…Continue

You visit finance.yahoo.com, and you get an 310 error message saying "recursive redirect found on the web page". You do a…Continue
