Wanted to thread🧵some thoughts on parlays📜and round robins🐦 in sports betting. What are they, when to use them, etc.

Let's start by unlearning a few things.

Parlays are surefire ways to spot newbs with no clue what "expected value" is. They are sucker bets... OR ARE THEY? 👇
What makes a parlay #bad? Well, if you're like me, the parlay=bad mantra has been drilled in for quite some time. And generally, for good reason.

Why? Because most single item sports bets are bad in the first place. Multiplying them together in fact makes them worse.
Joe Public thinks the Dolphins are stone cold locks to cover 3.5 against the Jets on the road. He bets into -110 in an efficient market with no real method to generate an edge, meaning he likely has a 50% chance of being right but needs a 52.38% chance to beat the vig. Image

Context for understanding rising quits.

Corporate profits are through the roof and have been rising extremely quickly.

Employers unwilling to share the value that their workers help create are getting push back & attrition as workers move towards employers who do.
Switchers are getting faster growth than stayers.

This measures wage growth trends within the same worker over time, reducing issues with changes in who is employed.
There's been some acceleration in wage growth, but nothing like the acceleration in profit growth.

hello #psychology #stats twitter!

a while ago i promised some graphs on why #removing #outliers using a simple cut-off (eg, >2SDs) is a #bad idea

so that I can sleep at night again, here they are

tldr: DON'T (blindly) USE FIXED OUTLIER CUT-OFFS LIKE >2SD. EVER.

for some reason, it's very common in #psychology to remove 'outliers' from data

most common way: exclude data more than two standard deviations from mean

we spend time & money collecting data, then throw 5% away

🤷

I don't know why, or where it's taught, but there it is

Was doing #Gochar #Transit analysis for a #Libra #Jaatak #Kundali when I stumbled upon a very powerful #Astro event taking place in ALL #Libra #Charts but also potentially quite damaging for the #Jaatak if their #Natal #Chart or #Lagnesh is weak...
#Mars would be around 25* in the 6th #Bhaav, looking into the #Lagan with 8th #Drishti where #Laganesh #Venus would also be placed with similar #Degrees. #Mars/#Venus are not just antiparties, they are also #Enemies to one another and hence this #Vedan is not the best
#Rahu, placed in the 8th #Bhaav of the #Chart would also be having similar 25*. In #Taurus, dispositor of #Rahu is #Venus. #Rahu and #Venus having similar strength, #Rahu becomes very powerful and #Malefic for the time being

So of all the VP choices that have been presented to us, do any have rankings?

For me in first is @KarenBassTweets and not just because of an elderly SNL skit with Dan Ackroyd.

I feel like there's some person or thing counting tweets so I wanted to put the name Karen Bass out!
Bass-o-matic is 44 years old!

Of the VP choices, Karen Bass is up there for me, and could help the ticket in one direction. You've already got a Republican top of the ticket, why not mix it up and have at least one Democrat out of 4?
It's true! Karen Bass, for all your VP needs.

Joe Namath's rookie contract was the largest in professional football history. Not among rookies, among everyone.

His knees were so messed up that the military gave him deferred service. He used to have to get them drained during halftime so he could finish games.
Despite this, Namath made the pro bowl in his 1965, his first season, and was named Rookie of the Year. He was a first-team All Pro QB in 1967, 1968, and 1969, earning AFL MVP in the latter two seasons.

(Side note: in 1969 the AP named him 2nd-team All Pro *AND* league MVP.)
Shortly after, injuries began to mount. He missed 9 games in 1970 and 10 games in 1971 before playing 13 out of 14 games in 1972 and again being named first-team All Pro, this time of the post-merger league.

Missed 8 more games in 1973 before winning Comeback PotY in 1974.

Hikvision is one of the more significant of multiple Chinese surveillance customers for . Always been a meaningful segment for them. This is a big negative for them
From last earnings call. Very likely IMO Hikvision could be a 10% customer (they only disclose customers %s at the distributor level) #negative Image
Apparently applies to Dahua as well. This really seems very bad for

This morning, I called this my favorite stat this year. But then I thought that was an exaggeration. It's my favorite stat for the #Cardinals.

Here's my favorite stat for every other team. #Thread
#Falcons in 2016: 1.57 TDs per FG attempt
2017: 0.85 TDs per FG att
#Ravens
Joe Flacco was 7th in pass atts in 2017, never threw for 300 yds, averaged <200 per game.
