True, but the reality is that it will always be hard to have good studies on this kind of subject. It's a small field with researches not always done on trained individuals. If there are both studies and real world experience backing up a claim, I'm usually inclined to accept such claim.

Very hard to generalize in this topic imo.

Because of the quite large amount of people in RHET who do stats/econ/other quant shit and who work in finance we should create a RHET alumni society

Good catch bobo.
I can admit that I need to improve my statistic skills and critical judgment of studies.

Do you really need SPSS if you're fluent with R? At least in my field that would make little sense.. especially if you write with LaTeX

I was TA for a metrics course where for some reason SPSS was de facto, seemed retarded to me. I've heard it's quite OK for manova/anova/ancova stuff but I think you will get a much better return for your investment just sticking with R.

Those issues could be addressed by conducting studies with enough participants (and with a reasonable selection strategy) though, allowing both generalization about average effects and mapping of individual differences , but I get the feeling that there isnt much funding for doing that type of studies....


Fuji, there are huge amounts of online shit about R as you probably know, but you might like this book, uses R and WinBugs (which I dont know though) for multi level regression models http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~gelman/arm/

I'm not sure if there's a should I, should I not buy this, type of thread on this subforum so I'll ask here.

 

Mostly will be using this for fruits and veggies, or are there better options out there?

U def dont have to spend that much for that

I am feeling like any 2HP juicer with metal guts will be good enough, and u can get those for like $150 no problem.

@Cool The Kid

Any brands in particular? a lot of the cheaper ones appear to be made with a plastic base like the Ninja blender(I've considered this as a cheaper alternative).

I just got a 600W Nutribullet like 2 weeks ago. It's not too bad. They have more powerful versions for not much more. I would get something with a bigger cup though so you can make shit in bulk. Nutribullet can only make ~24oz at a time apparently.

It seems so disordered though, I would like some kind of order to go through it with instead of watching random youtube videos and being like oh cool. I'll have a look at that book, a book seems ideal.

I bumped R for Stata users from a colleagues bookshelf because Stata is my one true love in life, I think I have one other book too - as mentioned there's a lot of good stuff online. That book seems pretty legit though.

I have the ninja ultima. It's absolutely great, I don't see what more I could want in a blender. Makes vegetables into great smoothies with no lumps or grittiness at all like what you would get in a store. Very good blender, construction seems great too. I've never handled a vitamix, but I can't imagine it does that much better of a job blending.

Fuji, coursera has some advanced R stuff for free.

Bought it, was pretty cheap on amazon.
