It’s confusing, but essentially the Federal government is once again trying to clamp down on our rights. A nearly twenty minute video at the BA post above does have some info in it, but most folks don’t want to listen to warnings and complaints for a third of an hour. A lifelong hunter and shooter, Russ Chastain has made it a point to learn much about hunting, shooting, guns, ammunition, gunsmithing, reloading, and bullet casting.
This page is designed to give a general overview of the capabilities of NCSS Statistical Analysis Software for survival analysis. This procedure computes the nonparametric Kaplan-Meier and Nelson-Aalen estimates of survival and associated hazard rates. A life table presents the proportion surviving, the cumulative hazard function, and the hazard rates of a large group of subjects followed over time. This procedure calculates nonparametric, maximum-likelihood estimates, and confidence limits of the probability of failure (the cumulative incidence) for a particular cause in the presence of other causes. An often used, though incorrect, approach is to treat all failures from causes other than that of interest as censored observations and estimate the cumulative incidence using 1 – KM (Kaplan-Meier estimate). This procedure also calculates Gray’s Test (K groups) and Pepe and Mori’s Test (2 groups) for comparing groups. The Weibull Distribution Fitting procedure estimates the parameters of the exponential, extreme value, logistic, log-logistic, lognormal, normal, and Weibull probability distributions, using maximum likelihood. One side (in the original version) is distinctly female, with a covered breast and a rounded hip.
After Viper was defeated by Jaden, Yubel tricked him into believing his son was alive, making Viper fall off the arena because she had no further use for him (In the English version this is cut out, instead she grabs his face and destroys him out right with her Devil Arm). Yubel later reappears in the Duel Monsters Spirit World, possessing Jesse to continue her mission to destroy those who dare separate it from Jaden while she simultaneously tries to unite all twelve Duel Spirit dimensions together with the "Super Polymerization" card so she may reign over them with Jaden at her side (in the English version she states she wants to unite the entire universe so that none feels the pain and loneliness Jaden made her feel). When first reappears in Jesse's body, she Duels and defeats Zane Truesdale, whom willingly challenged her. Yubel is seen during the opening of the Darkness arc near Jaden, and it's later revealed that she actually still existed as an individual.
In May 2011, the Indian customs forced The Economist to doctor 28,000 copies of its 21 May issue before permitting their distribution. The problem was a cover story about the border dispute between India and Pakistan in Kashmir, one of the worlda€™s most militarized regions.
Ever since the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947 and the proclamation of the Peoplea€™s Republic of China in 1949, Kashmira€™s border have been both a cause and symptom of the tension between India and its Pakistani and Chinese neighbours.
The Indian government often uses a 1961 law amending the criminal codea€™s national security provisions in order to censor maps showing Kashmira€™s disputed border.
Anticipating the censorship of the regional map in its 21 May 2011 issue, The Economist added a box entitled a€?Missing map?a€? at the end of report. Sadly India censors maps that show the current effective border, insisting instead that only its full territorial claims be shown.
This time, they’re targeting both the First and Second Amendments by seeking to force citizens to beg their permission in order to discuss guns and ammo online. The thing at issue here is Department of State, 22CFR Parts 120, 123, 125, and 127, Public Notice 9149, RIN 1400-AD70. That is, it is the study of the elapsed time between an initiating event (birth, start of treatment, diagnosis, or start of operation) and a terminal event (death, relapse, cure, or machine failure). It can fit complete, right censored, left censored, interval censored (readout), and grouped data values.
The analysis accounts for subjects who die (fail) as well as subjects who are censored (withdrawn). The problem with this approach is that it makes the incorrect assumption that the probability of failing prior to time t from other causes is zero. Gray’s Test compares the weighted averages of the subdistribution hazards across groups for the event of interest.
Some features available in the Weibull Distribution Fitting procedure include probability plotting, hazard plotting, and reliability plotting for the common life distributions.
Her most noticeable features are her sickly-pink skin, large black wings, heterochromic eyes, which look similar to Dartz's while under control of the Orichalcos and a third vertically placed eye.
The other looks more masculine with a pectoral muscle, no breast, and a harder, less rounded hip; in addition, it is oddly the "masculine" side which is paired with Yubel's original hair and eye color in the past life. In fact, all of her plans revolve around getting Jaden, even taking control of the Duel Spirit dimensions was only something that she wanted so she could have a world with Jaden. She also claims that life isn't worth living without that person that one loves the most, actually shedding a tear at the thought. Yubel also believes that the supposed "deaths" of most of Jaden's friends and manipulating his "Neo-Spacians" in harming Jaden with Yubel's effect, then destroying them mercilessly, is her way of payback, claiming that "My love for you is greater than theirs". All references to Yubel's "love" for Jaden were omitted and replaced by her childish desire to "play" with him.
Particularly seen when Jaden is Dueling against Nightshroud, as Yubel's spirit appears to support him.
Yubel tells Jaden that she is impressed and that recognizes Yugi as being the True King of Duelists, as Yugi is able to sense her spirit.

She also has the ability to link with others in order to bestow power onto them, signified by their left arm having scales on them, as evidenced with Viper and Adrian. However, because Yubel implied most of it came from The Light of Destruction, which was purged from her when she fused with Jaden, he may not possess the same power level than before. 3D Bonds Beyond Time, even though being still fused with Jaden, she is seen using her powers separately from him.
An unknown amount of time ago, Yubel and the boy who would become The Supreme King lived in unnamed kingdom.
Yubel wished to guard Jaden from any and all perceived threats, which unfortunately included any threats to their friendship. Tricking Viper into helping her with the promise of restoring his adopted son Pierce to life, Yubel coerced him into creating the Bio-Bands and Survival Duels, absorbing the energy produced by them so she could reform her shattered body, and eventually take back Jaden. Meanwhile, Yubel also orchestrated the events that led to Jaden's descent into darkness as The Supreme King in order for Jaden to understand her cruel ideology of love and to complete the card necessary for her plan, "Super Polymerization". After the Duel she returned to her palace to recover her strength (she had exhausted herself during her Duel with Zane), but finds that Adrian Gecko turned against her in attempt to unite the twelve dimensions under his rule. He proceeds to fuse their souls using "Super Polymerization", ending the Duel and binding them together for all time.
Eventually, it's revealed that Jaden does have Yubel's card in his Deck during the Darkness arc when he Dueled Nightshroud.
3D Bonds Beyond Time, Yubel appears in her spirit form while Jaden is being told of Paradox's plot to eliminate Maximillion Pegasus by Yusei Fudo. The report included a map showing the territory claimed by either side without taking a position on their territorial claims. It has usually settled for putting a a€?not recognized by Indiaa€? sticker on the maps, but in recent years it has toughened its information control policies, going so far as to block the import and distribution of copies of the Financial Times and The Economist in December 2010 because they contained maps of Asia that were a€?not consistenta€? with the governmenta€™s position. When the Chinese foreign ministry issued new passports in November 2012 with a map of China on pages 8 and 46 showing territory claimed by Vietnam, Taiwan, Philippines and India as Chinese, all of these countries protested but India was the only one to respond by producing new visas for Chinese citizens with a map of India that showed its version of the Sino-Indian border dispute.

The data values are typically a mixture of complete (terminal event occurred) and censored (terminal event has not occurred) observations.
There you will find formulas, references, discussions, and examples or tutorials describing the procedure in detail. It outputs various statistics and graphs that are useful in reliability and survival analysis.
The life-table method competes with the Kaplan-Meier product-limit method as a technique for survival analysis. Pepe and Mori’s Test compares the cumulative incidence functions (CIF’s) directly for the event of interest. The data may be any combination of complete, right censored, left censored, and interval censored data.
A maleficent Duel Monster whose card was in Jaden Yuki's possession when he was a child, Yubel was deranged and manipulative, exploiting various individuals to accomplish her machinations. Yubel's clothing is bizarre; one of her legs is completely covered, the other is mostly exposed. She knows how to manipulate others to do what she wants by playing on their innermost feelings and hidden desires.
Despite her outspoken love for Jaden, Yubel has no qualms about hurting him to accomplish her goals or bend him to her will.
However, she appears unable to understand any other form of love, and dismisses any relationships in which joy and suffering are not mutual as immaterial.
Ironically enough, what Yubel does to those she feels animosity towards is far less harmful then how she torments Jaden. Though at first she objects and sorts of mocks Jaden for how the Duel has commenced, as well as that comment made by him stating that he was alone, Yubel counters that idea made by Nightshroud, telling Jaden that isn't true as her spirit is always with him (being that their souls are fused together). 3D Bonds Beyond Time, Paradox referred to Jaden as a "Duelist with ability to control the spirits".[1] Thus, whether or not Jaden realized it, his power might have been able to calm Yubel's soul.
With the Duel advancing with him struggling as he's facing an formidable opponent, Yubel makes Jaden notice his shaking hand asking then if he is scared. She's been referred to as both a "he" and a "she" in the Japanese version, although she usually identifies herself with male pronouns such as "boku".
She can possess anyone with inner darkness in their heart and manifest herself through an being made out of energy. Yubel also has a degree of super-strength when she threw Marcel at Blair, using only one arm.
The King informed Yubel that a certain individual held the power of the Gentle Darkness, and that he needed a guardian to watch over him until he grew to adulthood and could control his power.
Under Jaden's request (hoping that she would gain the "powers of justice" that "Elemental Hero Neos" would eventually gain, in hopes that it would correct whatever was wrong with Yubel's soul), Yubel was sent into outer space by KaibaCorp in a separate satellite from his contest-winning card designs, the Neo-Spacians, but her satellite was exposed to the The Light of Destruction, something that she actually meant to help her friend fight against.
In the English version, Yubel's goals appear to be far more widespread; they consist, of making Jaden suffer for "discarding" her, protecting him from everyone and everything until he needs to defeat a great evil, and she appears to want to take him for her own as well. Yubel then possessed Marcel Bonaparte, and turned the students of the displaced faculty into Duel-obsessed zombies (known as Duel Ghouls in the dub) to help fuel her restoration, and eventually securing the Sacred Beasts and making a deal with Adrian Gecko. Yubel succeeds in defeating him as well by turning the spirit of Echo against him using her own power, regaining her energy as well as killing Adrian (this is changed to "sent to the stars" in the dub, though death is still heavily implied). After recruiting Yugi and going back thirty minutes before Paradox would attack Pegasus at the party he is to attend, Yubel uses her powers to scare away the other patrons before either Pegasus or Paradox would arrive. The Indian authorities nonetheless insisted on a white sticker being placed over the map in each copy sold in India, depriving the countrya€™s readers of a factual analysis of the border dispute.
Indian readers will probably be deprived of the map on the second page of this special report. From the data values, the survival analyst makes statements about the survival distribution of the failure times. It also performs several logrank tests and provides both the parametric and randomization test significance levels. The life-table method was developed first, but the Kaplan-Meier method has been shown to be superior and with the advent of computers is now the method of choice.
This overestimation can be quite substantial if there are many failures from other causes in the data.
Maximum likelihood and probability plot estimates of distribution parameters, percentiles, reliability (survival) functions, hazard rates, and hazard functions are also available.
Her hair is somewhat reminiscent of Yami Marik and Yami Bakura, each contributing to one half. In the English dub her top half is covered in black to look less revealing and more female, and in later episodes her chest is redrawn to have two breasts instead of one, but aside from that she looks exactly like she did in the original. Staying true to her villainous nature, she doesn't bind herself by her word: although she made a pact with Viper to bring back his son, Pierce, Yubel instead merely changed his memories so that he thought his son had never died.
Initially, Yubel made comments that Jaden "belongs" to her (essentially claiming him like he's her property), although she stopped making them after her reappearance for unknown reasons.
The reason Yubel acquired her twisted concept of love was that during her time in space, she at first felt that Jaden had discarded her, but later came to believe making suffer by sending into space was done out love, likely due to coming in contact with The Light of Destruction.

In the Japanese version, she explicitly says that she believes that the love that Jaden's past life gave her now belongs to Jesse.
This would indicates that her goal is to punish Jaden for her being banished into space, although this animosity isn't seen in the original version. She again boosts up his confidence when Nightshroud destroys "Neos Wiseman", thus telling him to remove her card from the game to bring back "Neos". As he questions this too, Yubel quickly denies this, telling him that she knows of his true feelings and emotions at the time. In the dub, Yubel has only a single (androgynous though somewhat identifiably female) voice prior to fully revealing herself.
Yubel is able to magically turn card effects real as seen with the snakes that prevent Jaden's comrades from helping during his Duel with Viper. Yubel volunteered to be that guardian, and was transformed from a human into the form she is most commonly seen in, referred to as a dragon. The Light caused Yubel to go insane (in the dub, the card absorbed power from what she described as "a darker form of energy" than Neos, which made her powerful but caused her extreme pain).
Yubel then challenged Jaden to a Duel, threatening to dispose of the Duel Ghoul if he turned the challenge down, and saying she would send everybody back home if Jaden won (although she had no intention of keeping her word).
When Jaden finally Duels Yubel to save Jesse, it is revealed that Yubel actually removed Jesse's soul from his body and placed him inside the "Rainbow Dragon" card before taking over.
Before Jaden Duels Paradox with Yugi and Yusei, his eyes glow and Yubel's spirit appears behind him. This distribution allows questions about such quantities as survivability, expected life time, and mean time to failure to be answered. However, for large samples, the life-table method is still popular in that it provides a simple summary of a large set of data. You can produce confidence intervals for distribution parameters and percentiles as well as nonparametric estimates of survival using the Kaplan-Meier procedure. Since then she acts as Jaden's partner similar to Yugi's relationship with Yami Yugi and Yuma's relationship with Astral.
When she was a human she had light blue hair with turquoise eyes and tanned skin and she was said to be beautiful. Yubel also throws away allies that she deems as useless as seen with Viper and Marcel, and brutally punishes those who betray her.
Yubel also doesn't care how dangerous the situations she manipulates Jaden into are (possibility of him dying during the Survival Duels, his journey into the second alternate dimension, etc.), because she always assumes (albeit correctly) that Jaden will survive. However, she seems still to have some possessive feelings towards him, and may still try to reclaim him as her own. As Jaden hesitates doing this, Yubel though telling him that he will now have to fight alone, thus convinces him to believe in his own power, and that also she's confident that he will defeat Darkness. Additionally, Yubel's English voice is given childish mannerisms and electronic effects that reflect her own childish nature: Yubel's initial behavior in the version is that of a spoiled brat determined to get her own way and remove those who oppose her. After absorbing massive amounts of energy, she is able to focus this magical power to a much greater extent, like summoning real monsters to use as servants, or using the "Polymerization" card to accomplish a fusion between spirit and human to create powerful duelists.
Lastly, she has the ability to peer into the mind and memories of others, and by extent, see the darkness of a person's heart, so she can tempt people to do her bidding by exploiting their individual desires.
Jaden then faced the Yubel-possessed Marcel, but the Duel was going badly for Jaden until Jesse showed up.
Jaden manages to release Jesse from Yubel's influence, but Yubel manages to force the Duel to a DRAW using "Thousand Buster" and takes the "Super Polymerization" necessary for the completion of her plans with "Last Trick". Yubel has further been shown to have an enormously warped and sadomasochistic view of love: because love, in part, is sharing feelings, both joy and suffering, Yubel therefore legitimizes Jaden's suffering as "true love". It's unclear, however, especially in earlier episodes Yubel showed her possessive feelings towards Jaden, but starting during his Duel with Viper she then switched to show hate for him. However, later on she behaves in a more adult manner, especially after first shedding Marcel. Her great power makes her capable of wielding the Sacred Beast cards, despite their negative effects on Duel Spirits.
Late in the Duel, Yubel leaves Marcel's body, having gained enough energy to fully restore her body. Jaden later Duels with Yubel in order to settle the problems between him and her once and for all. Despite how much she mocks her opponents, she is actually capable of sincerely respecting them, though it's overshadowed by how much she enjoys their suffering.
Yubel feels she has suffered greatly due to her time in space and the crash into the Earth that caused her to lose most of her body, and desires to share that suffering with Jaden.
Also, Yubel acted extremely childish at first, after Jaden's Duel with Viper it started acting for more fiendish, and intelligent. When possessing others (in both versions), her victims voice isn't changed (although her host's voice sounds more serious), though she sometimes uses one of her own voices in the Japanese version, while the English version she randomly uses an altered version of her host's voice. Yubel nearly wins the Duel using "Chaos Phantasm Armityle", but is stopped by Jesse's "Rainbow Dragon" card. By the end of the Duel, Yubel realizes that Jaden would never accept her love, and that he hated her for the suffering she caused him and his friends. This is missing from the dub; she no longer cares how much suffering her opponent endures and does not respect them (in Zane's case, on several occasions she mocked his heart condition). Yubel also takes Jaden more lightly then in the original (when he went to Duel when she was possessing Marcel, she was surprised he made it, while in the original she expected him to make it).
The monsters battling results in an explosion that consumes both Jesse and Yubel, although it's later shown that they both survived.
She then gives up her goal of ruling the Duel spirit dimensions with Jaden, and instead decides to destroy the dimensions along with Jaden.
All masculine aspects of her appearance were edited out as well, and both in the past life and the present life, she was given an excessively feminine voice as opposed to her voice in the original.
She still uses her own voice when possessing others, but she does it far less than in the Japanese version (whenever she speaks using her own voice in the version, her host body glows purple.).
The simplification of her motives may be due to the disturbing possible implications of Yubel's associating physical and emotional pain with love, often interpreted understandably as sadomasochism.
It's also worth noting that in the English version, Yubel often talks in scenes where she says nothing in the Japanese version. Yubel hasn't shown to be as sadistic as she was in the Japanese version and only seems to enjoy tormenting Jaden. But destiny had other plans, and they brought me back to you." Also of note is that in the dub, she did eventually realize that Jaden had put her through such pain to make her more powerful, and wanted to do the same to Jaden, but still resented how he had done it. In the version she also uses the term "destiny" several times, suggesting the Light has had a similar effect on her it did in Sartorius, at least in terms of influencing the belief that all is predetermined (in the original version, she never displayed any signs of this and was merely shown to be insane).
