My house is replete with art. Mostly paintings, but sculpture and crafts are also present. My dining room affords one with the beauty to augment the conversation and tasty morsels with which I- and my guests- enjoy the evening.

What happens when you choose the wrong study upon which you base your actions…

No Gravatar

Big data. Correlation vs. causation. Most people think that it’s imperative that we harness big data to find any correlations that exist. Without once determining what the theory is that could substantiate the correlation. (If you check back to my 19 April post, you will find the references to determine what is wrong with this concept.)

Our bodies- because that is about the minimum exercise to keep it in tone.
