Census A census is the procedure of systematically acquiring and recording information about the members of a given population. The term is used mostly in connection with national population and housing censuses; other common censuses include agriculture, business, and traffic censuses. The United Nations United Nations defines the essential features of population and housing censuses as "individual enumeration, universality within a defined territory, simultaneity and defined periodicity", and recommends that population censuses be taken at least every 10 years [...More...]  "Census" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

David David[a] is described in the Hebrew Bible Hebrew Bible as the second king of the United Kingdom of Israel and Judah. In the biblical narrative, David David is a young shepherd who first gains fame as a musician and later by killing Goliath. He becomes a favorite of King Saul Saul and a close friend of Saul's son Jonathan. Worried that David David is trying to take his throne, Saul Saul turns on David. After Saul and Jonathan are killed in battle, David David is anointed as King.

Ptolemies The Ptolemaic Kingdom Ptolemaic Kingdom (/ˌtɒləˈmeɪ.ɪk/; Ancient Greek: Πτολεμαϊκὴ βασιλεία, Ptolemaïkḕ basileía)[3] was a Hellenistic Hellenistic kingdom based in Egypt. It was ruled by the Ptolemaic dynasty, which started with Ptolemy I Ptolemy I Soter's accession after the death of Alexander the Great Alexander the Great in 323 BC and which ended with the death of Cleopatra Cleopatra VII and the Roman conquest in 30 BC. The Ptolemaic Kingdom Ptolemaic Kingdom was founded in 305 BC by Ptolemy I Ptolemy I Soter, who declared himself Pharaoh Pharaoh of Egypt Egypt and created a powerful Hellenistic dynasty that ruled an area stretching from southern Syria Syria to Cyrene and south to Nubia [...More...]  "Ptolemies" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Conditional Probability Distribution In probability theory and statistics, given two jointly distributed random variables X and Y, the conditional probability distribution of Y given X is the probability distribution of Y when X is known to be a particular value; in some cases the conditional probabilities may be expressed as functions containing the unspecified value x of X as a parameter. When both "X" and "Y" are categorical variables, a conditional probability table is typically used to represent the conditional probability. The conditional distribution contrasts with the marginal distribution of a random variable, which is its distribution without reference to the value of the other variable. If the conditional distribution of Y given X is a continuous distribution, then its probability density function is known as the conditional density function [...More...]  "Conditional Probability Distribution" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Mixture Distribution In probability and statistics, a mixture distribution is the probability distribution of a random variable that is derived from a collection of other random variables as follows: first, a random variable is selected by chance from the collection according to given probabilities of selection, and then the value of the selected random variable is realized. The underlying random variables may be random real numbers, or they may be random vectors (each having the same dimension), in which case the mixture distribution is a multivariate distribution. In cases where each of the underlying random variables is continuous, the outcome variable will also be continuous and its probability density function is sometimes referred to as a mixture density. The cumulative distribution function (and the probability density function if it exists) can be expressed as a convex combination (i.e. a weighted sum, with nonnegative weights that sum to 1) of other distribution functions and density functions [...More...]  "Mixture Distribution" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Mobile Home A mobile home (also trailer, trailer home, house trailer, static caravan, residential caravan) is a prefabricated structure, built in a factory on a permanently attached chassis before being transported to site (either by being towed or on a trailer). Used as permanent homes, for holiday or temporary accommodation, they are left often permanently or semipermanently in one place, but can be moved, and may be required to move from time to time for legal reasons. Mobile homes share the same historic origins as travel trailers, but today the two are very different in size and furnishings, with travel trailers being used primarily as temporary or vacation homes [...More...]  "Mobile Home" on: Wikipedia Yahoo

Middle Kingdom Of Egypt The Middle Kingdom of Egypt Egypt (also known as The Period of Reunification) is the period in the history of ancient Egypt Egypt between circa 2050 BC and 1710 BC, stretching from the reunification of Egypt under the impulse of Mentuhotep II Mentuhotep II of the Eleventh Dynasty to the end of the Twelfth Dynasty. Some scholars also include the Thirteenth Dynasty of Egypt Egypt wholly into this period as well, in which case the Middle Kingdom would finish c. 1650, while others only include it until Merneferre Ay Merneferre Ay c. 1700 BC, last king of this dynasty to be attested in both Upper and Lower Egypt [...More...]  "Middle Kingdom Of Egypt" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

New Kingdom The New Kingdom of Egypt, also referred to as the Egyptian Empire, is the period in ancient Egyptian history between the 16th century BC and the 11th century BC, covering the 18th, 19th, and 20th Dynasties of Egypt. Radiocarbon dating places the exact beginning of the New Kingdom between 1570 BC and 1544 BC.[1] The New Kingdom followed the Second Intermediate Period and was succeeded by the Third Intermediate Period. It was Egypt's most prosperous time and marked the peak of its power.[2] The later part of this period, under the 19th and 20th Dynasties (1292–1069 BC), is also known as the Ramesside period [...More...]  "New Kingdom" on: Wikipedia Yahoo

Amasis I Ahmose I Ahmose I (Egyptian: Jˁḥ ms(j.w), sometimes written Amosis I, "Amenes" and "Aahmes" and meaning Born of Iah[5]) was a pharaoh of ancient Egypt and the founder of the Eighteenth dynasty. He was a member of the Theban royal house, the son of pharaoh Seqenenre Tao Seqenenre Tao and brother of the last pharaoh of the Seventeenth dynasty, King Kamose. During the reign of his father or grandfather, Thebes rebelled against the Hyksos, the rulers of Lower Egypt. When he was seven years old, his father was killed,[6] and he was about ten when his brother died of unknown causes, after reigning only three years. Ahmose I Ahmose I assumed the throne after the death of his brother,[7] and upon coronation became known as NebPehtyRe (The Lord of Strength is Re) [...More...]  "Amasis I" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Home Range A home range is the area in which an animal lives and moves on a periodic basis. It is related to the concept of an animal's territory which is the area that is actively defended. The concept of a home range was introduced by W. H. Burt in 1943. He drew maps showing where the animal had been observed at different times. An associated concept is the utilization distribution which examines where the animal is likely to be at any given time. Data for mapping a home range used to be gathered by careful observation, but nowadays, the animal is fitted with a transmission collar or similar GPS GPS device. The simplest way of measuring the home range is to construct the smallest possible convex polygon around the data but this tends to overestimate the range. The best known methods for constructing utilization distributions are the socalled bivariate Gaussian or normal distribution kernel density methods [...More...]  "Home Range" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Herodotus Herodotus Herodotus (/hɪˈrɒdətəs/; Ancient Greek: Ἡρόδοτος, Hêródotos, Attic Greek Attic Greek pronunciation: [hɛː.ró.do.tos]) was a Greek historian who was born in Halicarnassus Halicarnassus in the Persian Empire (modernday Bodrum, Turkey) and lived in the fifth century BC (c. 484–c. 425 BC), a contemporary of Thucydides, Socrates, and Euripides [...More...]  "Herodotus" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Nomarch Nomarchs (Ancient Egyptian: heritep a'a) were Ancient Egyptian administration officials responsible for the provinces. Effectively serving as provincial governors, they each held authority over one of the 42 nomes (Egyptian: sepat) into which the country was divided. Nome is derived from the Greek nomos, meaning a province or district, and nomarch is derived from the Greek title nomarches (νομάρχης), the ruler of a nomos.[1] The division of the kingdom into nomes can be documented as far back as the reign of Djoser Djoser of the Third Dynasty in the early Old Kingdom, c. 2670 BCE, and probably harks even further back to the Predynastic kingdoms of the Nile valley [...More...]  "Nomarch" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Roman Egypt The Roman province Roman province of Egypt Egypt (Latin: Aegyptus, pronounced [ae̯ˈɡʏptʊs]; Greek: Αἴγυπτος Aigyptos [ɛ́ːɡyptos]) was established in 30 BC after Octavian (the future emperor Augustus) defeated his rival Mark Antony, deposed Queen Cleopatra VII, and annexed the Ptolemaic Kingdom Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt Egypt to the Roman Empire. The province encompassed most of modernday Egypt Egypt except for the Sinai Peninsula Sinai Peninsula (which would later be conquered by Trajan). Aegyptus was bordered by the provinces of Creta et Cyrenaica to the West and Iudaea (later Arabia Petraea) to the East. The province came to serve as a major producer of grain for the empire and had a highly developed urban economy [...More...]  "Roman Egypt" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Research Research Research comprises "creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications."[1] It is used to establish or confirm facts, reaffirm the results of previous work, solve new or existing problems, support theorems, or develop new theories. A research project may also be an expansion on past work in the field. Research Research projects can be used to develop further knowledge on a topic, or in the example of a school research project, they can be used to further a student's research prowess to prepare them for future jobs or reports. To test the validity of instruments, procedures, or experiments, research may replicate elements of prior projects or the project as a whole [...More...]  "Research" on: Wikipedia Yahoo
