  Risk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Therefore, the differentiation of risk definitions depends on the losses context, their assessment and measurement, as well as, when the losses are clear and invariable, for example a human life, the risk assessment is focused on the probability of the event, event frequency and its circumstances.
One effective way to solve framing problems in risk assessment or measurement (although some argue that risk cannot be measured, only assessed) is to ensure that scenarios, as a strict rule, must include unpopular and perhaps unbelievable (to the group) high-impact low-probability "threat" and/or "vision" events.
Risk in that case is the degree of uncertainty associated with a return on an asset.

 Risk- Epidemiology - MEDSTUDENTS
Risk factors confer an increased risk of disease to a person, and this can help practitioners to predict the natural history of disease, and when possible, change it by primary prevention.
Although, this information of “elevation of risk” must be interpreted cautiously, because sometimes medical articles describe a risk as 20, 30 times greater in risk population than in normal population (without risk factor), but the incidence of disease is extremely little in both.
Risk is closely related to incidence, so that comparing incidences from the control and disease groups can indicate if a factor leaded to an increased risk of developing a disease, if is neutral or even a protective factor.

 Megadeth : Risk - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Certainly, radio had become more willing to accept their music as time passed, and Megadeth cultivated that more conservative audience with polished production and reduced fury.
To their credit, Megadeth never went as far as trying to reshape their sound around AOR's rampant '70s worship, so even if their music lost a good deal of its danger and excitement, it has aged gracefully (something that can't always be said of Metallica's '90s output).
Risk is not much of a departure from its two predecessors; more reflective, melodic, and conventional than the Megadeth of old, it delivers a well-played set of hard rock tunes suitable for metal and AOR fans alike.
