Depending on how a sample is drawn, it may be a random sample or a nonrandom sample. A random sample is a sample drawn in such a way that each member of the population has some chance of being selected in the sample. In a nonrandom sample, some members of the population may not have any chance of being selected in the sample. Suppose we have a list of 100 students and we want to select 10 of them. If we write the names of all 100 students on pieces of paper, put them in a hat, mix them, and then draw 10 names, the result will be a random sample of 10 students. However, if we arrange the names of these 100 students alphabetically and pick the first 10 names, it will be a nonrandom sample because the students who are not among the first 10 have no chance of being selected in the sample. A random sample is usually a representative sample. Note that for a random sample, each member of the population may or may not have the same chance of being included in the sample. Two types of nonrandom samples are a convenience sample and a judgment sample. In a convenience sample, the most accessible members of the population are selected to obtain the results quickly. For example, an opinion poll may be conducted in a few hours by collecting information from certain shoppers at a single shopping mall. In a judgment sample, the members are selected from the population based on the judgment and prior knowledge of an expert. Although such a sample may happen to be a representative sample, the chances of it being so are small. If the population is large, it is not an easy task to select a representative sample based on judgment. The so-called pseudo polls are examples of nonrepresentative samples. For instance, a survey conducted by a magazine that includes only its own readers does not usually involve a representative sample. Similarly, a poll conducted by a television station giving two separate telephone numbers for yes and no votes is not based on a representative sample. In...

Adolf Hitler
Promised more jobs and better opportunity financially
Women had to be stay at home mothers (not allowed to work)
Wanted all non-germans to be stripped of there rights or dead (like the Jews)
He was supported by anti-communist, nationalist, and the working class
His goal was to unit all german speaking people
Wanted to wage war against Britain
Born in Austria
Supported by smiler people
Both wanted unity
Wanted there countries to have justice
Francisco Franco
Made foreign investments
Refused to fight the British; fear of defeat
Stabilized Spain's economy
He used the armies power to protect Spain from liberal encroachment
Supported by anti-communist
Hitler and Franco had some stuff in common. They were both supported by anti-communist groups. And both wanted a simple thing like unity. They wanted to bring justice to there countries. And they both had something to do with Britain like Hitler wanted a war against them and Franco feared them. And they were allies.
But they both did have different opinions on some stuff. For example, Franco wanted to stay safe and not attack Britain because he wasn't sure if Germany would win. While Hitler really wanted to go against Britain and he was sure Germany would win. They also did things differently. Franco wanted to protect Spain while Hitler wanted all non-germans out or to be killed. SO they did have different opinions and views on certain things. 9/11 twin towers...

...RANDOM LYRICS
We are young!
But we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
But we don't belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart
I see the children in the rain like the parade before the pain.
I see the love; I see the hate; I see this world that we can make!
I see the life I see the sky. Give it all to see you fly...
Yes, we wave this flag of hatred, but you're the ones who made it!
Watch the beauty of all our lies passing right before my eyes.
I hear the hate in all your words all the wars to make us hurt
We get so sick, we're so sick; we never wanted all this
Medication for the kids with no reason to live!
So we
March to the drums of the damned as we come
Watch it burn in the sun - we are numb!
We are young!
But we have heart
Born in this world as it all falls apart
We are strong
But we don't belong
Born in this world as it all falls apart
As we walk among these shadows, in these streets, these fields of battle
Take it up, we wear the medal, raise your hands with burning candles.
Hear us whisper in the dark, in the rain you see the spark
Feel the beating of our hearts fleeting hope as we depart
All together, walk alone against all we've ever known
All we've ever really wanted was a place to call our home
But you take all we are; the innocence of our hearts.
Made to kneel before the altar as you tear us apart!
So we
March to the drums of the damned as we come
Watch it burn in the...

C. Time
* Pre-Spanish Period
Problem:
* Datu Puti and company escaped the tyrannical rule of the Sultan of Borneo. Sailing North, they were searching for lands to settle down. But the land they first saw and landed were occupied by Natives called Itas. Will they be allowed to settle and stay?
Goal:
* To find a land where their families will finally settle down. Datu Puti requested Marikudo to give them land to settle down.
Events:
* Finally, after consulting the tribesmen with the approval of Maniwantiwan, Marikudo give the land in exchange for the golden hat and the necklace of pearls.
Ending:
* They finally settle down along the seashore by building huts with the help of the followers of Marikudo. The community grew bigger and bigger until they occupied other parts of Panay, building the three kingdoms, the Irong-Irong, now known as Iloilo was headed by Datu Puti, Aklan, at present Aklan and Capiz was headed by Datu Bangkawa, and Hantik, now known as Antique was ruled by Datu Sumakwel.
There they cultivate the lands, planted rice, camote and other useful plants in their colony. They were expecting rich harvest and Datu Puti was satisfied.
The Occupation by Datu Puti and company went farther North and reached Southern Luzon...
