3 Links on Bayesian Probability; 2 Links on Teaching

Another reason Bayesian statistics might be intriguing. (Gelman)
Conditional expected productivity and benching players with fouls. (ESPN)
A Bayesian rational for a situation where high variance might be a good thing. (MR)
Paying for grades isn't easy. (Freakonomics)
Ugly fonts and material retention. (Wired) This gives me my quote of the day:
making material harder to learn — what the researchers call disfluency — can actually improve long-term learning and retention

...and worsen teaching evaluations.
