Physicians have been prescribing it as an herbal remedy for centuries. In 1640, the great English herbalist John Parkinson wrote about goat’s rue in his life’s work, Theatrum Botanicum, recommending it for “the bitings or stings of any venomous creature,” “the plague,” “measells,” “small pocks,” and “wormes in children,” among other conditions.
We share plenty of features with apes, but the shape of our feet isn't one of them. So that makes the discovery of human-like footprints dating back 5.7 million years – a time when our ancestors were thought to still be getting around on ape-like feet – a surprising one.
JPM Coin is a new in-house payment rail that allows institutional clients to easily move funds around different (international) accounts, 24/7 and in (near) real-time. This will remove a lot of friction (e.g. costs, delays, compliance requirements) that would otherwise occur if those payments had to first go through external systems like SWIFT and interbank settlement systems (e.g. Fedwire, Chaps, Target2).
The underlying principle of the bootstrap is deceptively simple. Relatively small samples generally provide very reliable information about the shape of the populations from which they are drawn, even though a sample may not provide reliable information about other characteristics of a population. Using the bootstrap method, we treat this sample as a population and take repeated samples with replacement from it; these are referred to as bootstrap samples. These bootstrap samples provide us with reliable insight into important characteristics of various sample estimates, and they enable us to construct reliable confidence intervals and conduct valid hypotheses tests.
