Mix math and medicine and create confusion

This article provides an interesting exchange between a doctor (Doctor Friedman) and a statistician (Judith Singer).

(The break marks are necessary because Wiki only make a new line when it sees a blank spaces. Do not leave a space before typing a line. If you do you will get a box around the line!)

To make a link to a website, for example to the Chance Website Website, start with the URL, add a space, and add name of the website. Put this whole thing in brackets.

There are two ways to indent a quotation. The first is to indent each line using :, ::, ::: depending on how much you want to indent it.

produce the complete works of Shakespeare.Now, thanks to the
Internet, we know that is not true. ~ Robert Wilensky

The other is to use the web blockquote.

There are two ways to add images. If you have a URL for the image you can just give this without any brackets. For example:

http://www.dartmouth.edu/~chance/wikividios/primeWSJ.jpg

The other method is to upload the image. For this you have to login and use the "Upload file" that appears on the sidebar after you register. If you use this method you can adjust the size and make other adjustments explained in the Help available from the sidebar. Here is an example: News.gif

It is nice to add a discussion question or two. The format for this is:

DISCUSSION:

(1) Do you think this Template will be helpful?

(2) What have I left out?
