  Fourth-rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some fourth rates did remain in active service even during the Napoleonic Wars, especially in the shallow North Sea, where the Royal Navy's main opponents were the Baltic powers and the Dutch, whose own fleet consisted mainly of 50 and 64 gun ships.
However, HMS Leander, 50 guns, was with Horatio Nelson at the Battle of the Nile.
As late as 1807, fourth rates were active in combat zones, illustrated by the fatal incident between HMS Leopard (50 guns), and the US frigate Chesapeake (38 guns), an incident which nearly led to war.

 Third-rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When the rating system was first established, in the 1670s, the third rate was defined as 70 guns, with second-rates having 90 guns, and fourth-rates 54-60 guns.
Although the rating system was only used by the Royal Navy, British authors might still use "third-rate" to speak of a French 74.
By the end of the 18th century, the rating system had mostly fallen out of common use, ships of the line usually being characterized directly by their number of guns, the numbers even being used as the name of the type, as in "a squadron of three 74s".

 Polk County Modeling of GLO Soil Classification
Midpoints of section lines rated 1st rate are closer to timber/grove polygons (mean distance of 949 meters) than those of 2nd rate soils or 3rd rate soils (1,347 and 2,547 meters, respectively).
Midpoints of section lines rated 1st rate are closer to rivers (mean distance of 3,856 meters) than those of 2nd rate soils or 3rd rate soils (4,768 and 5,955 meters, respectively).
Ratings range from 100 for soils that have no physical limitations, occur on minimal slopes, and can be continuously row cropped to as low as 5 for soils with severe limitations for row crops.

 Modeling of GLO Soil Classification
The soil ratings in their notes provide an interesting look at what the Surveyors called the "face of the country." The survey maps and notes produced by the GLO surveyors are among the few detailed, systematic data sources about Iowa before much of it was changed to a landscape of intensive agriculture.
Approximately half of the 1st rate soils are in the poor drainage class and approximately one-third of the 1st rate soils are in the moderate drainage class.
Approximately three-fourths of the 3rd rate soils are in the poor drainage class (the highest percentage of any class) and the remaining one-fourth of the 3rd rate soils are in the moderate drainage class.

The highest inactivity rates are seen in the region of the Middle East and North Africa, largely due to the high rates among women.

 Pro-football-reference.com blog » Why is 3rd-and-2 a passing down?
If the success rates on the two kinds of plays are the same, then offenses don’t have any incentive to shift their play-calling mixture.
It is possible that the success rates are skewed in favor of the run because of quarterback run-pass option plays or unplanned scrambles.
I think coaches believe it’s harder to run the ball on 3rd down because they think the defense is more geared to stop it, but really the numbers show it’s no harder to run on 3rd and short than on 2nd and short.

 U.S. Economy Booms Along At 5.5% Rate / 3rd-quarter figures show inflation remains in check   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Demand for goods and services has gone up at nearly a 5.5 percent rate since the beginning of 1997, but GDP, which is a measure of production of goods and services in the United States, has increased at about a 4 percent rate.
In the second quarter, for instance, inflation- adjusted GDP rose at only a 1.9 percent rate, but the gain would have been at a much stronger 3.4 percent rate except for a decline in the pace of spending on inventories.
Some analysts say additional rate increases could come as soon as the beginning of February if growth doesn't slow to what Fed officials regard as a sustainable pace -- which with strong productivity gains could mean a GDP growth rate of 3.5 percent.

 Economy Grew at Strong Rate in 3rd Quarter - New York Times
Economists were expecting the economy to grow at a 3.6 percent pace, according to a survey by Bloomberg News, in part because they believed that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita would take a greater toll on the economy than they appeared to have.
The strong G.D.P. report is expected to encourage Federal Reserve policymakers to continue raising their benchmark short-term interest rate, now at 3.75 percent, when they meet again on Tuesday, economists said.

On the other hand, the passing net big gain percentage has been less stellar, suggesting that while this stat may be important for accruing regular season wins, a team that depends too heavily on the big play may be sketchy come the post-season.
Finally, net 2nd down play success rate has seen four of the six prior winners being top ranked -- probably about the best top rank pick success of any stat you could find anywhere -- who says third down is the key down?
