 Statistical special pleading - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Statistical special pleading (a particular type of special pleading) is a logical fallacy which occurs when the interpretation of the relevant statistic is "massaged" by looking for ways to reclassify or requantify data from one portion of results, but not applying the same scrutiny to other categories.

 n-Categories - Sketch of a Definition
Definition: the monoidal category of "c-signatures", written "sig(c)", is the category svf(prof(c)); it is a monoidal category because the universal property of svf(fam(c)^op) gives an equivalence of categories between sig(c) and the monoidal category of endomorphisms of the symmetric monoidal small-ly co-complete category svf(fam(c)^op).
Definition: for a functor f: d -> c between small categories and a c-operad o, the "pullback operad of o along f", written "o_f", is the d-operad whose underlying svf is

 Irish Times Article - Revenue has set up special branch to monitor large firms
A special division of the Revenue is monitoring the affairs of the largest 343 businesses in the State, all of which have annual turnovers of more than €125 million, it was revealed yesterday.

The division, which is also monitoring the affairs of 250 individuals believed to be worth more than €50 million each, specialises in countering what it describes as "aggressive tax avoidance".

 Rallying - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A typical rally course consists of a sequence of relatively short (up to about 50 kilometers) timed "special stages" where the actual competition takes place, and untimed "transport stages" where the rally cars must be driven under their own power to the next competitive stage within a generous time limit.
Rally cars are thus unlike virtually any other top-line racing cars in that they retain the ability to run at normal driving speeds, and indeed are registered for street travel.
In the past—and until recently in North America—most rally courses were not allowed to be scanned prior to the race, and the co-drivers used maps supplied by the organization.

 justice
Many political economists also disregard the question, the more so the father they are removed from philosophical inquiries, and the more they delve into special questions remaining, despite many concessions to modern schools, in their fundamental views in the beaten paths of English and German dogmas, which know no other categories than demand and supply.
Comparing superficially the phenomena of nature with the social processes, Darwin's theory of the struggle for existence, which permits the strong to oppress the weak and excludes all possibility of a just distribution of earthly possessions, is brought into play.
They have, as a rule, a vague, half-conscious feeling that socialism demands a juster distribution of goods, and hence the conservative citizen and friend of order has no choice but to oppose this idea.

 Steps towards a Design Theory for Virtual Worlds
The first category in this list actually contains three small case studies, and the second can also be considered a special case of it; proof visualization is our most extensive case study, part of a large project to produce a web-based system to support theorem proving.
A tentative and difficult but precise mathematical approach is given in Appendix B of [Goguen and Malcolm, 1996], based on a modification of the category theoretic notion of "pushout" [Mac Lane, 1998]; this modification takes advantage of an ordering relation on morphisms, along the lines discussed in Section 2.4.
Perhaps surprisingly, many important mathematical concepts can be defined abstractly in the language of category theory, without reference to how objects are represented, using only morphisms and composition; moreover, many general laws can be proved about such concepts, and these automatically apply to every category.

 Oracle At Trec8: A Lexical Approach
Concept classification, choice of categories, and the hierarchical organization are all carefully designed for their usefulness in information retrieval rather than ontological purity, with a special focus on avoiding problems of semantic ambiguity.
High precision is achieved by a disambiguation and ranking technique called theme proving whereby a knowledge base relation is verified in the lexical and semantic context of the text in a document.
Themes are extracted from documents and queries by parsing them using an extensive lexicon together with a knowledge base of concepts and relations.
