Learning Stuff While Missing the Point
As a college professor for many decades, I am always amazed at how so many students pass exams while having so little understanding . If I taught math, it would probably be different, because the task in math is to solve problems, which you can t do if you don t understand how to construct and solve appropriate equations.

Small Samples, Big Hopes
Conventius Every experience is a sample. Scrupulus Of what When we ask What does science teach us or What do the data tell us we do well do give the notion of the convenience sample another look.

Modeling Gulf War illness: Knowing the cause of brain dysfunction is key to fi...
When hundreds of thousands of American troops deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1990 and 1991 in what is now called the First Gulf War, they were exposed to a variety of chemicals. These chemicals -- especially when coupled with war-related stress -- seem to still be affecting nearly 200,000 Gulf War veterans -- or 25 to 32 percent of those who served -- more than 25 years later, and the constellation of resulting symptoms has been termed Gulf War illness GW ...
