Eating Red Meat May Boost Death Risk - 2 views

    More than 500,000 men and women between the age of 50 and 71 participated in this 10-year study that concludes that 11% of deaths in men and 16% of deaths in women could have been prevented if participants cut their red meat consumption. [The study was published 3 years ago, but it's still interesting]. Mostly empirical, though also a bit subjective.

    McCreeley seems to invoke the axiomatic notion of probability, but her view is likely much more subjective.

    This uses empirical probability, since although it isn't cited, it presumably uses data to assess the probability

    Subjective probability, however simulations can be run large numbers of times to give a more empirically subjective probability.

    "Beau's caretakers at the Yellow River Game Ranch in Lilburn say he has a 94 percent accuracy rating..."

    I'd say this is an example of subjective probability.

Satellite crash site, narrowing the probability | NowPublic News Coverage - 1 views

    This article approaches probability axiomatically. The scientists first estimated how many of the fragments of satellite would burn up on reentry based on their size. Then, for the components they expect survived the reentry, they determined the probability that they would hit any populated area and cause damage. They reasoned that since most of the planet's surface is water, there is a greater probability for the satellite debris to land in the ocean rather than on land.

BBC News | SCI/TECH | Low probability of ice collapse - 0 views

    This article contains axiomatic probability because it checks the ways this specific event can occur (West Antarctic Sheet collapsing) and compares it to the number of outcomes that can occur (whether it collapses or remains).
