Global Terrorism is a documented problem the World is dealing with. In the elementary Statistics course we conducted an experiment examining the correlation of multiple aspects to why there has been a rise in terrorism in certain decades. We posed the question “Are there patterns in terrorism across the world through the past several decades?”.
At first glance, we acknowledged that there is a dramatic spike in 2001 with terrorism along with 1985. We see that 2015 the graph is still rising with terrorism and from 2001 after 911 to now there was a steady decline in terrorism in America. The key patterned noticed with the first and second graph

Epistemology (better known as the theory/science of knowledge) is on of the branches of philosophy. It is the study of trying to distinguish something that is true (something that is adequate enough) and something that isn't adequate. This theory/science provides an understanding of the concept of knowledge of which can be understood in terms of belief, truth, and justification. Epistemology gives a clear view on the nature, scope, and quality of human knowledge. Also, epistemology is considered to be the most important thing of what makes a human being what he is- making all other branches of philosophy depend on epistemology. This goes to the fact that the whole nature of philosophy

The confidence interval is the probability that a value will fall between an upper and lower bound of a probability distribution, the value of a parameter lies within it. The margin of error is the range of values below and above the sample statistic in a confidence interval. Critical values is the point or points on the scale of the test statistic beyond which we reject the null hypothesis.
The central limit theorem says that the sampling distribution of any statistic will be normal or close to normal, if the sample size is large enough. The idea that a distribution of sample means is a more normal distribution than a distribution of scores, even when the population distribution is

The current debate regarding animal cruelty is a crime, yet it is still a global issue in which many countries have no regard and or understanding of. Ducks are being stabbed in the head, cats shot with an arrow, and organised dog fighting rings are among the 5,200 cases of animal abuses reported to the RSPCA in South Australia in the past year (Jones, 2017). The number of abuse reports has doubled since 2012, when there were about 2,000 cases flagged, according to RPSCA chief executive Paul Stevenson.

“Debtors’ Prison” Rhetorical Strategies
English writer, Samuel Johnson, in his argument Debtor's Prison argues to persuade the reader that the imprisonment of debtors is unlawful and immoral. He utilizes pathos, statistics and rhetorical questions to build his argument.
Throughout the excerpt, Johnson uses startling statistics to show the morally incorrect circumstances of imprisoning debtors. In paragraph 4 the author states that the population of England was roughly around 6 million. He then goes on to state, “… a nation that voluntarily sacrifices one in every three hundred…” Here, the author is saying that there are simply too many people (too many working bodies) being imprisoned over

Summary Report 1: Cost and Benefits of College
One of the biggest questions in today’s economy with the rising price to attend college is will going to college be the smart thing to do? There are arguments both ways for this question, but the overwhelming statistics and evidence prove that even with the increase going to college is clearly worth it. In this paper I will attempt to prove, through data and statistics, that the benefits of going to college well outweigh the cost.
One of the biggest reasons if not the only reason to attend college is to get a better job out of college than you would have not attending college. A lot of people want to

The value of gift cards to retailers is receiving the cash up front. Once a gift card is bought, it cannot be returned for a refund as items are. Some retailers also have expiration dates on gift cards and if the gift card expires or is never used, the retailer pockets that profit without losing any merchandise. According to gift card statistics, “59% of consumers surveyed spend more than the [gift] card’s value” (Hunter, 2018), bringing in more revenue for the retailer.

To put it into perspective, there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of Earth. In the last few years astronomers have gained the technology with which to discover planets around nearby stars and it's been discovered that most stars do have planets. This means that if there are 10,000,000,000,000,000 planets in the universe, it's very possible that 10,000,000,000 of these planets are capable of producing life. With statistics like this, even with a margin of error I find it hard to deny extraterrestrial life's inevitable existence.
