• Uncertain TikiWiki or Guaranteed MediaWiki is our Dilemma !
• Why the Tiki.Org Consultants Give Up in the Middle of the Work ?

To all the users of our eBA sketball Encyclopedia

The Uruguayan company 'Logos Consulting SRL', Official Technical Consultants from Tiki Org. ( developers of TikiWiki ), which was entrusted with the TikiWiki software upgrade on which is based the eBA sketball Encyclopedia, suddenly disappeared leaving the job half done with the consequential problems.

The following emails: Alfonso Vicente ( email: ) and Logos Consulting SRL (email: ) that until a few days ago we were communicated, are today bouncing our emails ...

If anyone can communicate with those emails to say they left a job half done for our eBA Stats Group, we thank you a lot !

Luckily for us, we had not paid anything because we had already a problem with another Official Technical Consultant from Tiki Org. ( developers of TikiWiki ), who, after 4 months !, also left the job half done !

Our apologies to all the users of the eBA sketball Encyclopedia, that is now working on perfection thanks to the ability of an Argentine computer technician who IS NOT a consultant of Tiki Org. ..."

from the eBA Permanent Clinic 6th. Month Meetings:

About the Statistical Decision Limit in Basketball

"... Decision theory in economics, psychology, philosophy, mathematics, and statistics is concerned with identifying the values, uncertainties and other issues relevant in a given decision, its rationality, and the resulting optimal decision

It is closely related to the field of game theory as to interactions of agents with at least partially conflicting interests whose decisions affect each other. ..."

"... Statistics works on notion that measurements are REPLICATES. So, if we see a "suspicious" looking value (high or low) it's always conceivable that it is not a replicate, but a GROSS ERROR crept into that (and only that) measurement at the time it was taken, resulting in the anomalous value. ..."

"... Now we determine which the Decision Limit is, that means the value to be tested again. By example, 75% at Free Throws means our D.L. . ..."

"... If one of the players IS a poorer free-throw shooter than the others, statistically that is an equivalent to his not being a replicate but an outlier. This is what you test for. ..."

"... Here is another case of using statistics to compare values (free throw %) with a D.L. (75%) and decide if there is a real cause present (a poorer capability to shoot free throws). ..."

Our September 2012 RECOMMENDATION !
...a New Month ...a New Basketball eBook eBADVICE ! A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball by Dwyane Wade

A Father First:
How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball
by Dwyane Wade

Wade wrote his book after being awarded custody of his two boys in March 2011.

He ultimately wanted it to showcase the regular life of the eight-time NBA all-star.

Part of the amazing reaction he received for the book was from other fathers who congratulated him for putting his children first during his high-profile divorce.

"Obviously anyone who's a father, it's one of the most special things in life, and one of the most purest relationships and purest things that you have in life.

You know, I enjoy being one of the guys with my boys, but I also enjoy being a leader and being able to lead them and help mold the way that they think, and hopefully some of the things that they're going to do."
Dwyane Wade

A Father First chronicles the lessons Dwyane has learned as a single dad from the moment of the judge's ruling that instantly changed his life and the lives of his boys, and then back to the events in the past that shaped his dreams, prayers, and promises.

As the son of divorced parents determined to get along so that he and his sister Tragil could have loving relationships with both of them, Dwyane's early years were spent on Chicago's South Side. With poverty, violence, and drugs consuming the streets and their mom descending into addiction, Tragil made the heroic decision to take her younger brother to live with their father. After moving his household to suburban Robbins, Illinois, Dwyane Wade Sr. became Dwyane's first basketball coach.
