In September 2015, Matt Coyne's partner Lyns gave birth to their first child, Charlie. One night three months later, sleep-deprived, his eyes still stinging from baby pee and knocked sideways by the realities that the baby books hadn't prepared him for, Matt stumbled to his computer and wrote a post on Facebook. That post went viral and was shared millions of times. Soon it was picked up by newspapers here and abroad, and Matt was even interviewed by Holly and Phil on This Morning. Since that first post Matt has been recording his experiences of having his life turned upside down by - in his own words - 'a furious, sleep-murdering, unstable and incontinent, breast-obsessed midget lodger'. His Facebook page 'Man Versus Baby' now has over 120K followers, a number that just keeps growing with each hilarious post. Honest, funny and incredibly warm-hearted - this is the parenting guide for real people.

It is often necessary for social scientists to study differences in groups, such as gender or race differences in attitudes, buying behavior, or socioeconomic characteristics. When the researcher seeks to estimate group differences through the use of independent variables that are qualitative, dummy variables allow the researcher to represent information about group membership in quantitative terms without imposing unrealistic measurement assumptions on the categorical variables. Beginning with the simplest model, Hardy probes the use of dummy variable regression in increasingly complex specifications, exploring issues such as: interaction, heteroscedasticity, multiple comparisons and significance testing, the use of effects or contrast coding, testing for curvilinearity, and estimating a piecewise linear regression.

Statistical offices try to match item models when measuring inflation between two periods. However, for product areas with a high turnover of differentiated models, the use of hedonic indexes is more appropriate since they include unmatched new and old models. There are two main competing approaches to hedonic indexes are hedonic imputation (HI) indexes and dummy time hedonic (HD) indexes. This study provides a formal analysis of exactly why the results from the two approaches may differ and discusses the issue of choice between these approaches. An illustrative study for desktop PCs is provided.

From his birth in 1954, David Patten was unbearably sensitive to the world around him. Unable to concentrate or learn the basics of reading and writing, he was punished and pathologized, labeled lazy, stupid, and a troublemaker. David was finally diagnosed with dyslexia, among other elements in the autism spectrum. But at a time when these disorders were little understood, David was unable to get the help he needed, and he gradually fell into the dark underbelly of American life. David’s struggle to survive and find a life worth living included time in a mental institution for attempted suicide at fourteen, and life as a drug dealer in Chicago’s criminal underworld. Eventually, David’s exceptional abilities in abstract and analytical thinking led him into the technology field, and a lucrative six-figure career as a crisis manager and trouble shooter. His story of gradually transforming disabilities into skills, hopelessness into freedom is a testament to the power of the human spirit.
