Several months in advance, before you plan to travel, make sure you have a valid US passport and/or any visa you may need.

Research and read any public information, announcements or travel warnings for the location you plan to visit. You can find this information on the US State Department’s website.
Get familiar with local laws, customs, and currency exchange rates for the countries you are visiting.

Make 2 copies of your passport identification page. In the case that your passport is lost or stolen while you are abroad, you’ll be well on your way to getting it replaced and finding your way home. Leave one copy with family or a friend back home and take one copy with you (packed in a separate location from your passport).

Leave your contact details with friends or family, so that you can be contacted in case of emergency. Be sure you determine with them what actually constitutes an emergency, so that you are not called about something you can do little about…except worry.

Do not leave your luggage unattended at any time in public areas.

Do not accept packages from strangers. (What you were taught at a very young age still applys)

Avoid being a target of crime!! Do not wear conspicuous clothing or expensive jewelry. Do not carry with you large sums of money, a wallet full of credit cards or other gadgets not needed for travel.

To avoid violating local laws, deal only with authorized agents when exchanging money or making a sizable purchase.

If you find yourself in trouble, contact the nearest embassy for your country.

Enjoy yourself!! Have a lot of fun!! Vacations are designed to recharge your batteries and give you memories of a lifetime!

Statistics Programming – Easing the Pain

Different sets of software are being developed everyday just to ease man with some of his technical works such as in the field of business. These programs are specially designed to make high speed calculations and analysis of the data and come up with a soft copy of information output that can be used instantaneously after the software processes it. Statistics is one of the most complicated clerical works of anyone who is studying or working in the field of economics, politics and even social matters. Statistics is deemed to be of importance because it gives a type of descriptive conclusion or interpretation that can be very precise depending upon the quality of data that has been gathered and the competence that is given to organize, interpret and represent that data. But even with the level of competence that a person has with regards to his statistical skills, there is still a probability that a miscalculation might be made and alter the holistic outcome of the statistics.

However, because of the rapid advancements of technology and the evolution of the functions that can be performed by the humble computer software developers has come up with a certain software program that can make ease any statistician of all their statistical tasks. The development of a program that is able to perform the task of organizing and interpreting statistical data was q revolutionary breakthrough when it comes to statistical analysis help. Statistics programming is defined as the systematic calculation of all the numerical data that has been downloaded into the system wherein it is organized basing upon the categories. These categories are classified upon the nature of the data that has been downloaded. After the process of organizing the data, it will be then interpreted numerically. This function of statistical programming helps to lessen the burden of work and also to maximize the output of a statistician.

Statistical program is composed of sets of languages. There are a total of 17 categories in a statistical program and these are the following;
• Analytica, ADMB
• Gretl, GAUSS
• Mathematica
• OxMetrics
• Quantum (Programming Language)
• Programming Language, SPSS, Symbolic Data Analysis, Sysquake, SAS (software and language), Speakeasy(Computation), SHAZAM (Software)
• World Programming System
• XLispStat

Each of these categories of Statistics Programs has their own unique sets of functions. Each one of it is capable of performing specific functions about statistics. The MATRIX LAB is one of the statistics programs that are widely used today. It is a program that is provided by a certain company that is said to be fully capable of solving ad coming up with solutions with regards to any mathematical or numerical problems that are fed into it. The MATLAB assignment helps not only statistics but also other aspects that majorly require the use of mathematical equations and solving. Because of these software programs, statisticians are given more time to pay attention to other details of the data and leave the organization and the interpretation of it to the statistics software.
