The problem with P values

Null hypothesis significance testing (NHST) is commonplace in biological research. But it appears that we have been too lax about it.

This certainly mirrors our experiences in biological data. But the reality of the problem is that samples are difficult to come by, experimental methodology have large variations and people need to publish. Not an easy issue to solve.

Dinner at West Coast Plaza

We had dinner at West Coast Plaza after the visit to the Science Centre. While there, we realise that there was a balloon sculpture exhibition. It seemed to be very similar to the one that we saw at Marina Square a while back but this one had an animal theme. We took the opportunity to take some photos.

Singapore Science Centre

We went to the Science Centre again, this time for Esther to have fun at KidsSTOP. Ernest did not want to go in so we went to the outdoor garden. We had a good time there. One of the first things we did was to play the stone marimba which was actually quite fun.

Next Ernest has fun jumping on the trampoline.

While Ernest was playing, I took the opportunity to take some photos. I got sight of a lizard and took a shot at it.
