Souljournalists: Week 1, Day 4: Free dayIn statistics, there is easy ways to write null and alternate hypotheses and hard ways. The hard way involves > and <, so we’ll largely ignore those for the purposes of this brief article. Instead, we’ll cover the easy way.The easy way is basically just specifying whether you expect there to be a relationship between two variables, or not. No direction has to be specified – you don’t have to say that “I expect depression to increase as self-esteem decreases” anything like that. Instead, all you have to say is “I expect there is a relationship between self-esteem and depression”.In this case, your null hypothesis would be β = 0. This means that you expect the slope of the relationship to be 0, meaning that as your independent variable (self-esteem) increases, your dependent variable (depression) would experience no change. Your null hypothesis is the one you’re testing, to see if you can reject or fail to reject the null

Essay: Week 1, Day 1Why You Shouldn't Tell People "Just be grateful you're pretty" When They Want Sympathy:It’s easy to tell someone that they look fine, or that they should be grateful for what they have, or that they’re so pretty. It’s probably harder to sit and listen to what someone is actually saying, and then decide what to say.The thing is telling someone who has experienced serious health problems and has put on weight, lost some of their hair, or anything else, minimizes their feelings and is basically telling them that their feelings are wrong.
