The Most Hams Ever

Amateur Radio Sees Tremendous Growth in 2011: "As the third quarter of 2011 came to a close, ARRL VEC Manager Maria Somma, AB1FM, began calculating the number of licensed Amateur Radio operators in the US, as well as the number of new licensees. “At the end of September, I saw that the number of hams in the US was high,” she said. “When I started comparing that number with other years, I found that it was an all-time high.” For the first time, there are more than 700,000 radio amateurs in the US."

This is why I love sports

Wes Rucker has done the analysis and the Vols can finish anywhere from 2nd to 5th in the East depending on the outcome of three games this week-end.

Here is the best scenario:
"Alabama beats Georgia, Florida beats Vanderbilt, Tennessee beats Kentucky
1. Florida 13-3
2. Tennessee 9-7
3. Kentucky 9-7
4. Vanderbilt 9-7
5. Georgia 9-7"

Who is misinformed?

From the "How the World Works" video below...

You may have seen the study showing that Fox News Viewers are largely misinformed. Except they aren't - unless you ignore:

- The study didn't test what it claimed.
- The data collected supported opposite conclusions.
- The researchers cited disputed citations as fact.
- and more!

It reminds of:
Using statistics means you never have to say you lied.
Lies, damn lies, and statistics.
98% of all stats are made up.
