• ### How to gauge an average based on weight? read below?

HI, I have a situation regarding 'ratings' of a food.

Food #1 received 14 reviews with an average of 3.5

Food #2 received 2 reviews with an average of 3.0

Food #3 received 5 reviews with an average of 5.0

What type of formula could I use to come up with a weighted (that may be the wrong word excuse me) value that shows that the score with the most reviews (despite being a lower number) is still more valuable?

• ### Malpractice lawsuit settlement "mediation"?

This issue was regards to a surgery that went wrong 5 years ago leading to a early retirement and permanent disability.

3 questions

1) In a case of medical malpractice- - both sides will meet for mediation and come up with a out of court settlement. What is mediation and how does it work?

2) I recently went through yet ANOTHER surgery related to this case just 2 weeks ago. With Mediation coming up in the next few days would this surgery be included?

3) How does one know if that settlement amount is worth accepting"? What if money hungry lawyers suggest going for the first offer? how do we know who to trust?

• ### easy to use Alternative to Mint.com?

Does anyone know a easy to use alternative to mint.com? Im having issues with quicken support unable to resolve a issue with unable to connect to my bank.

Ive tried moneystrands and they've stopped "connecting" to online back accounts due to technical issues.

Ive tried yodlee and the interface is primitive at best. Not easy to use.

Im willing to BUY local software, as long as it connects to my bank and offers a mint.com like experience. I have a Mac (I know I shouldnt be using it for "business") if that helps find the proper software.

I do not need any billpay or reminder features. Just good statistics of trends and ease of reporting.

• ### How do Nike Zoom Kobe VI's Run? How to size them?

I normally wear 9.5 in sneakers and dress shoes. My feet measure 9.5. I believe they are narrow.

I'm able to fit in a 9.0 Kobe VI's and 9.5. I dont notice much difference but the 9.0's fit more like a "glove". I believe this is what the shoe is after.

Should we use the smallest size that we fit comfortably in?

I can even wear 9.0 with a soft ankle brace - but its like a glove.

Do they stretch out with use?

HELP!!!

• ### What is a Multicore CPU? Does the OS interact differently than a Single Core CPU?

i'm asking in terms of Operating Systems concepts.

From what I understand the OS will treat the cores as separate processors. Each executing its own processes and threads.
