Edit: Here it is: http://iovs.arvojournals.org/article.as ... id=2199953
It actually applies more to looking for specific effects and phenomena so doesn’t particularly apply to what we’re talking about but it does expand on the idea that a sample size is chosen based on what’s being looked. And, as it says, for a population study, power calculations are done in advance to determine sample size.


Cheers for finding the relevant link; I will take a gander with an open mind.


That's just a paper that sprung to mind because I'm familiar with it. It's not particularly relevant really, other than in passing.

This is probably a better overview:

Breaking news that is making me giggle. Michael Cohen, the attorney/friend of Trump's who's entire communication records are in the hands of the FBI, has 3 clients. The second aside from Trump is another man who required Cohen to handle a million dollar hush up pay off.

The third, who has just been revealed, is Sean Hannity. I mean, Cohen seems to be only needed for pay offs, so that kind of makes one wonder what Hannity needs hiding. The reason I find it funny, is that Sean Hannity is the one person the leader of the United States of America goes to for 'how to be President'.

This country is in such good hands. :lol: :roll:

“Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!!!!!”

It amazes me how Trump and his surrogates are so ignorant that the sins they accuse others of having are the very sins THEY are guilty of themselves!

LOCK HIM UP !!!!!

Obviously what Alfie Evans' family is going through is heartbreakingly sad. Clearly they've been the victims of some false optimism and their understandably strong feelings have been enabled by people who may well truly believe what they say, but who unfortunately don't know what they're talking about.

But when people are rocking up with bouncy castles, getting pissed, calling staff 'murderers', and upsetting other families whose kids are sick and dying, that's when this stops being an issue of people feeling strongly about something that they don't understand but with the best of intentions, and becomes something quite sinister.

So thousands of Commonwealth citizens who have been in the UK for decades, often since childhood, face being sent ‘home’ to countries they have next-to-no knowledge of:

Funny how it’s Jamaica and India, and not Canada, Australia and New Zealand, isn’t it?

this is a case of "bad governing" and unacceptle inaction during decades.

I strongly criticise this decision.
