This is a fun study. First, let’s talk about the two folks who performed this research. A husband and wife. Who like to visit restaurants. And, wanted to know whether a change in the minimum wage really does cause restaurants to close.
On Friday, I wrote about the income inequality problem. Well, that discussion really has been one of the recurring themes of my blog- because the problem is so widespread. (I even have published a monograph on the subject.)
So, yesterday, I described a meta-analytical study about ADHD. You recall that effecting a meta analysis means one examines data collected from various studies and attempts to see if there are correlative results among the studies. (See that word- correlative? Meta-analysis doesn’t really help to determine causation; it just lets one correlate large collections of data to see if there is a trend or factor that stands out.)
Whether you drink 4, 6, 8 or 12 glasses of water a day- we all know it’s critical to stay hydrated. And, despite the fact that i used to drink 20, 30, or 40 cups of coffee a day- that was not the way to hydrate one’s body. (I don’t drink that much coffee anymore- nor do I drink any pop.)
