    Lecture 8_Fallacies of weak induction

    UIllinois, PHIL 102

    Excerpt: ... nsory perception is a myth. Question 4 Lester Brown, universally respected author of the yearly State of the World Report, has said that the destruction of tropical rain forests is one of the ten most serious worldwide problems. Thus, it must be the case that this is indeed a very serious problem. False cause Denition False cause fallacy: An argument in which the link between premises and conclusion depends on some imagined causal connection that probably does not exist. Example During the past two months, every time the cheerleaders have worn blue ribbon s in their hair, the basketball team has been defeated. Therefore, to prevent defeats in the future, the cheerleaders should get rid of those blue ribbon s. This is called post hoc ergo propter hoc (after this, therefore because of this). Another example The quality of education in our grade schools and high schools has been declining for years. Clearly, our teachers just arent doing their job these days. This is called oversimplied cause. Sli ...

The professional associations that provide leadership for developmental education and learning assistance also face challenges: A need to demonstrate more effectively the utility and importance of academic success programs and centers that focus on the entire college student body; A division of talent, elected leadership, resources, and financial assets that could be more powerfully harnessed; An absence of a coordinated approach to professional development; A lack of financial resources to provide for employment of a professional paid staff that provides continuity for the association and more services for its members; and Inconsistent involvement of the profession with policymakers, like-minded professional associations, educational agencies, and national and state media, resulting in a weak influence on public policy. 1 Blue Ribbon Comm ...

    Washington, BIO 476

    Excerpt: ... Brief: Blue Ribbon Coalition of OFF Road Vehicle Users Prepared by Greg Noble and Thyda Ros 12 November 2002 The Blue Ribbon Coalition, founded in 1987, is a group of dedicated off-road vehicle (ORV) users, which includes snowmobilers, four by four drivers, and dirt bikers alike. Today, we represent over six hundred member organizations and more than half a million recreationists and resource users nationwide. We recognize the social and ecological values of inventoried roadless areas set forth by the National Forest Service (NFS) in the proposed Roadless Area Conservation rules. However, we strongly value our ORV users right to enjoy public lands in their own way. Thus, we are concerned with a couple of issues set forth in the final environmental impact statement (FEIS). Our first concern is the impacts that these rules may have on existing roads for OHV (off highway vehicle) users, as they may threaten access as well as possible roads closures that was first proposed by the Clinton-Gore administrations R ...

    Excerpt: ... errors. The ASA Blue Ribbon Panel on the Census discussed this in its technical attachment to the 1996 Report -"The achievement of greater accuracy depends on how much more accurate the refined enumeration procedure is than the standard procedure and how much greater is its cost These factors need to be evaluated for each specific case to determine the comparative accuracy of census and sample results. It should also be noted that more refined enumeration methods can sometimes only be employed with smaller-scale, (i.e., sample), studies. Reasons for this include the need for highly trained enumerators who are available only in limited numbers and the use of burdensome questionnaires that can be employed only with a small sample." The samples proposed for following up nonresponse are very large (not much smaller than the total nonresponding population that would be treated in full follow-up). This requires the same enumeration procedures (with the same contribution of nonsampling error) in the sample as would ...

    Who_I_Am_Makes_A_Difference

    San Diego State, WESTOP 2006

    Excerpt: ... WHO I AM MAKES A DIFFERENCE A teacher in New York decided to honor each of her high school seniors for the difference they made in her life. Then she presented each of them with a Blue Ribbon imprinted with gold letters which read, "Who I Am Makes a Difference." Afterwards the teacher gave each of the students three more ribbons to acknowledge others, to see what impact it would have in their community. They were to follow up on the results, see who honored whom and report back to the class next week. One of the students honored a junior executive in a nearby company for helping him with his career planning. The student gave him a blue ribbon and put it on his shirt just over his heart. Then the boy gave him two extra ribbons, explained their class project on acknowledgement and enlisted the executive's help. Later that day the junior executive went in to his boss and told him that he deeply admired him for being a creative genius. The junior executive asked him if he would accept the gift of the blu ...
