Publilius Syrus was a Syrian slave, a mime, and a writer of Latin maxims. Brought as a slave to Italy in the 1st century BC, he won his freedom by his wit and talent. His 1087 sayings presented here include: 1. As men, we are all equal in the presence of death. 2. The evil you do to others you may expect in return. 3. Allay the anger of your friend by kindness. 4. To dispute with a drunkard is to debate with an empty house. 5. Receive an injury rather than do one. 6. A trifling rumor may cause a great calamity. 7. To do two things at once is to do neither. 8. A hasty judgment is a first step to a recantation. 9. Suspicion cleaves to the dark side of things. 10. To love one’s wife with too much passion, is to be an adulterer. 11. Hard is it to correct the habit already formed. 12. A small loan makes a debtor; a great one, an enemy. 13. Age conceals the lascivious character; age also reveals it. 14. Bitter for a free man is the bondage of debt. 15. Even when we get what we wish, it is not ours. 16. We are interested in others, when they are interested in us. 17. Every one excels in something in which another fails. 18. Do not find your happiness in another’s sorrow. 19. An angry lover tells himself many lies. 20. A lover, like a torch, burns the more fiercely the more agitated.

Generalized Linear Models With Examples In R

This textbook presents an introduction to multiple linear regression, providing real-world data sets and practice problems. A practical working knowledge of applied statistical practice is developed through the use of these data sets and numerous case studies. The authors include a set of practice problems both at the end of each chapter and at the end of the book. Each example in the text is cross-referenced with the relevant data set, so that readers can load the data and follow the analysis in their own R sessions. The balance between theory and practice is evident in the list of problems, which vary in difficulty and purpose. This book is designed with teaching and learning in mind, featuring chapter introductions and summaries, exercises, short answers, and simple, clear examples. Focusing on the connections between generalized linear models (GLMs) and linear regression, the book also references advanced topics and tools that have not typically been included in introductions to GLMs to date, such as Tweedie family distributions with power variance functions, saddlepoint approximations, likelihood score tests, modified profile likelihood, and randomized quantile residuals. In addition, the authors introduce the new R code package, GLMsData, created specifically for this book. Generalized Linear Models with Examples in R balances theory with practice, making it ideal for both introductory and graduate-level students who have a basic knowledge of matrix algebra, calculus, and statistics.

Ink Stink Bait Revenge And Queen Elizabeth

In Ink, Stink Bait, Revenge, and Queen Elizabeth, Steven W. May and Arthur F. Marotti present a recently discovered "household book" from sixteenth-century England. Its main scribe, John Hanson, was a yeoman who worked as a legal agent in rural Yorkshire. His book, a miscellaneous collection of documents that he found useful or interesting, is a rare example of a middle-class provincial anthology that contains, in addition to works from the country’s cultural center, items of local interest seldom or never disseminated nationally. Among the literary highlights of the household book are unique copies of two ballads, whose original print versions have been lost, describing Queen Elizabeth’s procession through London after the victory over the Spanish Armada; two poems attributed to Elizabeth herself; and other verse by courtly writers copied from manuscript and print sources. Of local interest is the earliest-known copy of a 126-stanza ballad about a mid-fourteenth-century West Yorkshire feud between the Eland and Beaumont families. The manuscript’s utilitarian items include a verse calendar and poetic Decalogue, model legal documents, real estate records, recipes for inks and fish baits, and instructions for catching rabbits and birds. Hanson combined both professional and recreational interests in his manuscript, including material related to his legal work with wills and real estate transactions. As May and Marotti argue in their cultural and historical interpretation of the text, Hanson’s household book is especially valuable not only for the unusual texts it preserves but also for the ways in which it demonstrates the intersection of the local and national and of popular and elite cultures in early modern England.
