â€œI guess I should have asked for more details before signing up for this "Streaming Data" workshop,â€ written by Chris Lacke from Rowan University; and â€œOn reflection, random sampling WITH replacement might not have been appropriate in this scenario,â€ written by Aaron Profitt from Godâ€™s Bible School and College.
