47 Mentoring and Modeling - John Goetsch & Mark Rasmussen
Auteur : John Goetsch & Mark Rasmussen
Genre : Christianity
God’s Word challenges us to “train up a child in the way he should go.” Today’s parents, pastors, youth workers and teachers are training tomorrow’s generation. Secular society is clearly showing the result of a lack of emphasis on training.

Mentoring and Modeling is a primer that can help those who are working with young people to do so in an effective way. Former President Ronald Reagan said, “We don’t expect children to discover the principles of calculus on their own, but some would give them no guidance when it comes to ethics, morality, and values.”

This book will show a number of ways that children can be mentored. Bob Jones Sr. said, “You will be someday what you are now becoming.” Pastors, parents, youth workers and teachers have a duty to mold the young people God entrusts to them in a way that pleases and glorifies our Lord and Savio

49 The Art of Statistics - David Spiegelhalter
Auteur : David Spiegelhalter
Genre : Mathematics
The definitive guide to statistical thinking
Statistics are everywhere, as integral to science as they are to business, and in the popular media hundreds of times a day. In this age of big data, a basic grasp of statistical literacy is more important than ever if we want to separate the fact from the fiction, the ostentatious embellishments from the raw evidence -- and even more so if we hope to participate in the future, rather than being simple bystanders.
In The Art of Statistics, world-renowned statistician David Spiegelhalter shows readers how to derive knowledge from raw data by focusing on the concepts and connections behind the math. Drawing on real world examples to introduce complex issues, he shows us how statistics can help us determine the luckiest passenger on the Titanic, whether a notorious serial killer could have been caught earlier, and if scree
