Download Taking Chances books, "What are the odds against winning the Lotto, The Weakest Link, or Who Wants to be a Millionaire? The answer lies in the science of probability, yet many of us are unaware of how this science works. Every day, people make judgements on a wide variety of situations where chance plays a role, including buying insurance, betting on horse-racing, following medical advice - even carrying an umbrella. In Taking Chances, John Haigh guides the reader round common pitfalls, demonstrates how to make better-informed decisions, and shows where the odds can be unexpectedly in your favour. This new edition has been fully updated, and includes information on top television shows, plus a new chapter on Probability for Lawyers."--BOOK JACKET.

Taking Chances

by Jordan Howard Sobel, Taking Chances Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Taking Chances books, Jordan Howard Sobel has long been recognized as an important figure in philosophical discussions of rational decision. He has done much to help formulate the concept of causal decision theory. In this volume of essays, Sobel explores the Bayesian idea that rational actions maximize expected values, where an actions's expected value is a weighted average of its agent's values for its possible total outcomes. Newcomb Problems and the Prisoners' Dilemma are discussed, and Allais-type puzzles are viewed from the perspective of causal world Bayesianism. The author establishes principles for distinguishing options in decision problems, and studies ways in which perfectly rational causal maximizers can be capable of resolute choices. Several of the essays concern games, with interacting ideally rational and well-informed maximizing rationality. Sobel also views critically David Gauthier's revisionist ideas about maximizing rationality.

Taking Chances

by Karen M. O'Neill, Taking Chances Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Taking Chances books, Humanity is deeply committed to living along the world’s shores, but a catastrophic storm like Sandy—which took hundreds of lives and caused many billions of dollars in damages—shines a bright light at how costly and vulnerable life on a shoreline can be. Taking Chances offers a wide-ranging exploration of the diverse challenges of Sandy and asks if this massive event will really change how coastal living and development is managed. Bringing together leading researchers—including biologists, urban planners, utilities experts, and climatologists, among others—Taking Chances illuminates reactions to the dangers revealed by Sandy. Focusing on New Jersey, New York, and other hard-hit areas, the contributors explore whether Hurricane Sandy has indeed transformed our perceptions of coastal hazards, if we have made radically new plans in response to Sandy, and what we think should be done over the long run to improve coastal resilience. Surprisingly, one essay notes that while a large majority of New Jerseyans identified Sandy with climate change and favored carefully assessing the likelihood of damage from future storms before rebuilding the Shore, their political leaders quickly poured millions into reconstruction. Indeed, much here is disquieting. One contributor points out that investors scared off from further investments on the shore are quickly replaced by new investors, sustaining or increasing the overall human exposure to risk. Likewise, a study of the Gowanus Canal area of Brooklyn shows that, even after Sandy swamped the area with toxic flood waters, plans to convert abandoned industrial lots around the canal into high-density condominiums went on undeterred. By contrast, utilities, emergency officials, and others who routinely make long-term plans have changed operations in response to the storm, and provide examples of adaptation in the face of climate change. Will Sandy be a tipping point in coastal policy debates—or simply dismissed as a once-in-a-century anomaly? This thought-provoking collection of essays in Taking Chances makes an important contribution to this debate.

Download Taking Chances books, Taking Chances (formerly Big Apple Dreams)- from Kamery Solomon, bestselling author of The God Chronicles and A Midsummer Night's Fling. "Taking Chancess was an eloquently written book. You can feel the desire of the theater in the details that the author describes. Plus the love triangle had you screaming for the other guy. The one who shares the passion and love for your deepest desire. I absolutely loved how she was able to engage the reader as if the were a member of an audience in a play that Marama was trying out for. Half way through you already have your mind made up on who you wanted her with. This was an excellent book and I would highly recommend it to anyone that has dreams and need the drive to reach them. Perseverance pays off if the end." ~Lisa Markson, Paranormal Bookworm "What happens when you follow your dreams? Sometimes they really do come true! Mara followed her dreams and moved to NYC to work in the theatre. And now I want to go to New York! I want to see Wicked (so I really did buy a ticket.) And I want to be kissed by the hot guy! Taking Chances will have you dreaming big and wanting more!" ~Raquel Auriemma, Roc N' Read Blurb: One dream. Two men. Three choices. Moving to New York has always been the fantasy for Mara Adams.
