### Starship Troy
This has nothing to do with statistics - just socializing. Please join
us, or at least a few of us, for dinner and/or a play. Starship Troy
is performed at the Buntport Theater every other week. It might be
described as a live sitcom. It is close to improve - but the actors
have two weeks to come up with an episode loosely based on a randomly
selected suggestion from the audience. For a much better description
see www.buntport.com. The average cost of the play is $7 +/- $1. The
play starts at 8 and usually ends before 9. You can't make
reservations and it is relatively popular - so if you are going
directly to the play, I would recommend getting there by 7:45. Did I
mention that these people are really, really funny?
If you are interested in food or drink, we will meet at El Noa Noa at
6 pm. El Noa Noa is located at 722 Santa Fe. It has much better
than average Mexican Food ( in my opinion.)
The theater is at 717 Lipan - just west of 7th and Santa Fe Avenue.
Please look at the website for directions. The theater and
restaurant are 2 blocks apart, so you should be able to park once.
Reservations are not necessary, but if you think you will be joining
us - please send me a note.
Two planned, but unscheduled events.
David Banks from Duke University will be giving a talk via video on
the topic of statistics in human Rights. This talk coincides with the
recent publication of Statistical Methods for Human Rights by Asher,
Jana; Banks, David; Scheuren, Fritz J. (Eds.) . Additionally, this
will be our chapter's first attempt to host a speaker remotely. This
event will likely occur in mid to late March.
David Plati for the CU - Boulder sports department will be giving an
informal talk on statistics in sports. This event will likely occur
in February likely at a pub in Boulder.
