    [–] Planning study with multiple IVs and DVs? Stauce52 1 points ago in AcademicPsychology

    You can’t think of a single time when multivariate regression is a good idea? Huh? Can you clarify because if I understand correctly, I couldn’t disagree with you more.

    If you’re interested in multiple IVs or you think there are covariates that are important to account, multivariate regression is useful. If you want to do a residualized change model rather than difference score model to test for change, you need to do more multivariate regression.

    Rather than splitting up your IVs all into separate models and inflating your false positive rate, if your IVs are conceptually related or make sense together, your model should often be a comprehensive test of your theory and test your main effects, IVs, and covariates. If you are concerned about issues which covariates induce an effect for an IV when included, than just to model build up. But to say all multivariate regression is bad— I’m just confused where you’re coming from...

    [–] Recommendations to improve my stats thinking and skills? Stauce52 3 points ago in AcademicPsychology

    Great advice. Honestly, as you describe, it makes me realize how misconceived undergraduate stats for psych majors is. It’s pretty ineffective and doesn’t stick super well and I think it’s in part because classes always focus on getting students to memorize t test and ANOVA formulas. But man, is that not useful. What would be useful would be having them learning fundamentals of probability, different distributions for different problems, different estimation techniques, etc

    [–] The 49ers have erected outdoor weight rooms with individual tents for each player. Stauce52 9 points ago in 49ers

    I don’t know if the room tents make a difference but I’d push back and say that doing as much stuff outside as possible is surely going to help in limiting spread and exposure. We don’t know a ton about the virus but it seems pretty apparent outdoors will limit spread

    I wonder to what extent being a team in California where we can do weight lifting outside through winter is an advantage. Kind of weird thought but a team like Green Bay will struggle to do weightlifting outside due to it being freezing cold and snowing but outside is where players and coaches are likeliest to remain safe from COVID

    Dude why does it matter? You don’t need to persecute the guy for maybe agreeing with one or two of hundreds of things Trump says. He clearly doesn’t support him. He can have his own nuanced opinions on a finer grained level that differ from yours

    After the LBJ and Civil Rights comment, he also gives a sorta jab at recent deceased civil rights icon John Lewis for not coming to his inauguration saying he’s not sure how he feels about him. That was bad. I know Trump is more petty than a middle schooler, but somehow he always amazes me with the things he’s petty about

    [–] All that, for nothing? Stauce52 1 points ago in dankmemes

    If you go to r/AskTrumpSupporters they agree it was a train wreck pretty much. But they also agree it won’t change their support

    [–] Riverside decides to NOT cancel the Festival of Lights! Thoughts!? Stauce52 -1 points ago in InlandEmpire

    I live near Mt Rubidoux, so right near downtown, and it was never disruptive to me. If you go home a couple streets over, I barely even notice anything is going on.

    [–] Riverside decides to NOT cancel the Festival of Lights! Thoughts!? Stauce52 2 points ago in InlandEmpire

    Devil’s advocate: is this that big of a deal and that bad if they just do the lights but nothing else and no events or vendors or anything?

    [–] Planning study with multiple IVs and DVs? Stauce52 1 points ago in AcademicPsychology

    I think one thing you could try, along the lines of what everyone else is saying, is trying to simplify the study by doing some sort of dimensionality reduction of the 8 DVs.

    Also, multivariate regression will allow you to predict one DV with multiple IVs, but not multiple DVs with multiple IVs.

    In terms of power analysis, any power analysis will be for one DV. So I would say you likely just need to pick one DV you care most about and base your power analysis off that. That seems justified to me.

    [–] [Eagles] Eagles post hype video of training where literally every person is wearing their mask incorrectly Stauce52 1 points ago in nfl

    Yeah I thought that was the case too and thought everyone was maybe being too harsh in the thread but the clip where everyone is talking in a huddle with their masks down is inexcusable

    [–] Matthew Stafford Tested Positive for COVID-19 Stauce52 10 points ago in nfl

    I think small private gatherings are a risk if you consider all the combinations of people who saw people who saw people that the 10 people at your gathering saw. They have friends who have friends who went to parties or went to restaurants.

    It’s a risk. It’s just a risk people are tolerating more now. Whether that’s okay, probably not. But I was at one gathering of like six people over the past four or five months so who am I to criticize

    [–] Matthew Stafford Tested Positive for COVID-19 Stauce52 4 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago) in nfl

    Woah there, don’t know if I’d say it’s indictment of his morality. I think if you’re condemning someone’s COVID-related behaviors, you can indict their intelligence or morality but you can’t have it both ways. E.g. if they’re stupid, they didn’t understand the moral consequences. If they cognizant of the moral implications, they’re probably not stupid.

    EDIT: To be clear, I’m not defending being irresponsible and not practicing proper health protocols. I just think calling someone both stupid and immoral is probably extreme (e.g. all of us have surely felt tempted to get out and be social again) and also just not helpful and is part of the combative rhetoric that makes all of this stuff so polarizing

    [–] Matthew Stafford Tested Positive for COVID-19 Stauce52 11 points ago in nfl

    Yeah I’ve seen people be more egregiously irresponsible than hang out with four friends. This isn’t great but not the worst. Among the range of COVID fuck ups and irresponsibility, this is like mid-range ish I think

    [–] Where have you been... I missed you so much! Stauce52 48 points ago in PublicFreakout

    Totally get that feeling and I’m sure you’re totally joking but I get the impression dogs like a lot of people but they really pair bond and feel a connection with one person in particular. And it’s rankings of people are like

    (1.) MY HOOMAN ... ... ... ... ...

    (30). everyone else is cool too
