Posted on July 21, 22 Comments In the last post I mentioned that a change in either the mean value or the variance of a probability distribution will greatly affect the probability of extreme events. I also mentioned that a change in variance has a more profound impact on the likelihood of extremes than a change in mean value. One of the things which led me to believe that we have witnessed a change in variance is a paper by Hansen et al which discusses many aspects of temperature change, including variability in temperature.
The basic kind of graph of which there are many versions from which they conclude increased variability is this one left graph of figure 9: The caption describes the graph thus: Frequency of occurrence y-axis of local temperature anomalies divided by local standard deviation x-axis obtained by binning all local results for year periods into 0.
Area under each curve is unity. Standard deviations are for the indicated base periods. Note that the most recent year period shows much greater spread than earliest ones. Seasonal-mean temperature anomalies have changed dramatically in the past three decades, especially in the summer. The shift of the probability distribution Fig. In addition, the probability distribution broadens, the warming shift being greater at the high temperature tail of the distribution than at the low temperature tail.
I used the temperature data from climate divisions of the U. I might have figured it out, but I could be wrong. Note that the most recent year period no longer shows dramatically greater spread than earliest year periods. They ascribe the different result to this: The effect of alternative base periods on the frequency of temperature anomalies is shown in Fig. Use of a recent base period alters the appearance of the probability distribution function for temperature anomalies, because the frequency of occurrence is expressed in units of the standard deviation.

But this privilege is given only to those 21 years of age and up: If you are unfamiliar with card games try to educate yourself before arriving in Las Vegas, but dealers are always full of advice for beginners. Also pros suggest playing the games with the lowest house advantage, such as craps and blackjack paying 3 to 2.
More fun but with less chances to win are slot machines, roulette, and some craps bets. To facilitate gambling in machine-based games, you can use a pre-paid card to make wagers and collect winnings. Most major casinos are found on the Las Vegas Strip. Fremont Street is the second most famous street in Las Vegas.
Do not worry there are a million other things to see and do while in Vegas: Inside there is a huge flower garden as well as a fine-art gallery — The Flamingo Garden offers a great garden with flamingos and other exotic birds, as well as koi and turtles — The Guggenheim Hermitage Museum is a museum in The Venetian — At the Mirage Volcano in front of the casino erupts in a terrific light show almost every hour in the evening.
Also at the Mirage, an impressive aquarium, and a dolphin habitat — The Shark Reef in the Mandalay Bay hotel is best know for walking through a transparent tunnel with sharks, sea turtle, fish on all sides — The Fremont Street Experience is a pedestrian mall where most of the downtown casinos are located.
Multimedia shows are displayed on a giant canopy over the street nightly. Nearby, Laughlin is the third most visited casino destination in the state. Laughlin is advertised as a more family-friendly venue with outdoor and family activities.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn't trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan.
But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here's an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change? Has there been too much?
Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome. Tergiversate This rare word was chosen to represent because it described so much of the world around us. Tergiversate means "to change repeatedly one's attitude or opinions with respect to a cause, subject, etc.
And so, we named tergiversate the Word of the Year. Bluster In a year known for the Occupy movement and what became known as the Arab Spring, our lexicographers chose bluster as their Word of the Year for Here's an excerpt from our release that year that gives a pretty good explanation for our choice: Privacy We got serious in Here's an excerpt from our announcement in Things don't get less serious in Our Word of the Year was exposure , which highlighted the year's Ebola virus outbreak, shocking acts of violence both abroad and in the US, and widespread theft of personal information.
Here's what we had to say about exposure in From the pervading sense of vulnerability surrounding Ebola to the visibility into acts of crime or misconduct that ignited critical conversations about race, gender, and violence, various senses of exposure were out in the open this year.
