The Bell Curve: Corrected for Skew
Haggai Kupermintz
Education Policy Analysis Archives , 1996,
Abstract: This commentary documents serious pitfalls in the statistical analyses and the interpretation of empirical evidence presented in The Bell Curve. Most importantly, the role of education is re-evaluated and it is shown how, by neglecting it, The Bell Curve grossly overstates the case for IQ as a dominant determinant of social success. The commentary calls attention to important features of logistic regression coefficients, discusses sampling and measurement uncertainties of estimates based on observational sample data, and points to substantial limitations in interpreting regression coefficients of correlated variables.
On the Paradoxical Book of Bell  [PDF]

The bell curve revisited: A South African perspective  [cached]
Johann M. Schepers
South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 1999, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v25i2.671
Abstract: The principal objective of the study was to examine some of the scientific premises of The Bell Curve by Herrnstein and Murray (1996). It was shown that the hypothetical construct referred to as 'g' is nothing more than the aggregate of the various cognitive tests contained in the battery of tests that is subjected to factor analysis. The nature of g, therefore, depends on the composition of the test battery. Furthermore, it was shown that the predictive validity of multiple factors is always better than that of g alone. The validity of Spearman's hypothesis was investigated and found wanting. The critical role of formal schooling in the development of intellect (both fluid and crystallised) was discussed with reference to illiterate adults in South Africa. The importance of the interaction of heredity and environment was stressed. The best genetic endowment can only come to fruition in a stimulating environment. The relationship between locus of control and intelligence was discussed. Opsomming Die hoofdoelstelling van die studie was om die wetenskaplike aannames waarop The Bell Curve deur Herrnstein en Murray (1996) gebaseer is, te ondersoek. Dit is aangetoon dat die hipotetiese konstruk, bekend as 'g', niks meer is as die somtotaal van die Verskillende kognitiewe toetse wat in die battery ingesluit is en aan faktorontleding onderwerp word. Hierbenewens is getoon dat die voorspellingsgeldigheid van veelvuldige faktore altyd hoer is as die van g alleen. Die geldigheid van Spearman se hipotese is ondersoek en gebrekkig bevind. Die kritieke rol van formele skoolopleiding in die ontwikkeling van intellik (sowel vloeibaar as gekristalliseerd) is bespreek met verwysing na ongeletterde volwassenes in Suid-Afrika. Die belangrikheid van interaksie tussen oorerwing en omgewing is beklemtoon. Die beste genetiese potensiaal kan slegs tot verwekliking kom in 'n stimulerende omgewing. Die verband tussen lokus van beheer en intelligensie is bespreek.
Review of Nelson's analysis of Bell's theorem  [PDF]
Benjamin Schulz
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: This article contains a review of Nelson's analysis of Bell's theorem. It shows that Bell's inequalities can be violated with a theory of local random variables if one accepts that the outcomes of these variables are not predetermined prior to measurement. The article describes the relation between Bell's theorem and the Strong Free Will theorem of Conway and Kochen. Then, the original articles of Bell are analyzed in detail. Following an article of Faris, it is explained that Bell's work on the hidden variable question in fact describes two separate theorems. Bell's first theorem says that there can be no model for the singlet state where an outcome does not depend locally on the settings of the detector where the outcome was measured. Bell's second theorem shows that Bell's inequalities can be violated by a theory that is either not deterministic, or violates causality in the sense of relativity or the free will assumption of the experimenters. It is shown in detail where Bell implicitly makes the various locality assumptions that Nelson has shown to be necessary for deriving Bell's inequality. The article closes by relating the various assumptions needed to derive Bell's theorem with the reality criterion of EPR

Abstract: This paper researched the curve fitting principle and structural characteristic for saxophone bell. And obtained the fitting parametric equation and curve about saxophone bell with MATLAB. In order to obtaining smooth transitional junctions for these segmental curves, revised the fitting parametric equations for saxophone bell. On the basis of the revised parametric equation, established the three dimension parametric model of saxophone with Pro/E. The parametric model lay a well foundation for the optimization design and shape mold design of saxophone in production practice.

Review Essay: Guides to Writing about Music  [cached]
Kendra Leonard
Journal of Music History Pedagogy , 2011,
Abstract: Guides to writing about music have become staples in courses on music history. This review covers three such books, by Bellman, Herbert, and Wingell, as well as RILM’s reference on musical terms and conventions. The review discusses the strengths or weaknesses of all four books in order to help an instructor decide what might be best for any particular course.
