The term “gamer” maybe something you have heard, read, or just barely recognize. It can mean several different things ranging from a simple definition to a descriptor of someone you know, or don’t know, all the way to a lifestyle and/or major contributor to one’s personality. “Gamer” is also a neutral term, meaning anyone who is male, female, or whatever else they may identify as can be considered as one by themselves or others. I oftentimes think of gamers as anyone who takes part in playing PC games, console games, portable games such as on iPhones or tablets, and even…


Data taken from the years 2009 and 2010 between several different types of companies shows that being a business-run and oriented farm combo may be the key to success. This gathered data that I have assembled into the bar chart seen below displays the gross values between 13 different businesses, farms, and business farm combinations. The chart displays the name of the business/farm to the left followed by a horizontal bar, indicating the value in US dollars of the business/farm, with the size of the bar indicating how much it’s worth is relative to the highest valued one.

While there…


The graph below represents data gathered through the entire duration of Donald Trump’s presidency and depicts that for the vast majority of his presidency, the disapproval ratings remained higher than the approval ratings. This suggests rather obviously, that more people than not disapprove of him, what he was doing, or both. Now, that does account for those who switched sides either once, twice, or even more times, it merely represents the answers received over the term.

Interestingly enough, the most notable dip in disapproval ratings came right before the end of Donald’s term. This would suggest one of two things…


The unemployment rates across Kentucky are an ever-fluctuating statistic, as I’m sure is the case in many states if not all, but cannot seem to offset the negative impact with positive ones. The counties of Magoffin and Woodford, have consistently held the lowest and highest rate of unemployment throughout these 3 years respectively. Magoffin started off the 21st century with an unemployment rate of 10.5, setting the highest rate in Kentucky whereas Woodford was experiencing a much lower rate of 2.7. In 2008, both counties‘ rates rose to 10.7 in Magoffin, and 4.8 in Woodford (which is still the lowest…


Films have exponentially differing effects on their viewers and also perform on highly varying levels whether that’s gross income, ratings, and popularity via votes on online websites. In this article, I will be comparing the performance in all of these areas between 2018’s best-rated movie and worst-rated movie, according to data found on imdb.com. On this website, all the factual information of a film is on display such as its categories (i.e.: action, adventure, sci-fi, etc.), length, maturity rating, directors, stars, and more. There are also bits of information that pertain to more fluid and heavily dependent factors such as…


The countries of the world are all vastly different from each other both politically and financially, as well as in regards to the freedom of the people. Certain values are placed above others in their governments or their citizen’s daily lives. Thanks to the World Bank and Freedom House, we now have accurate data depicting just how valued these aspects of finances and freedom are. In particular, I wish to discuss the relationship between an economically exploding countries GDP, The United States, and another that values the freedoms of its people more, Finland.

Ironically enough, the country whose founding ideals…


Quarterbacks in the SEC represent some of the best college football players there are in college football. Even so, precise stats on the performance of every one of these players vary greatly, and ultimately, every single point matters in the stats that help shape their overall rating. Whether the QB is just starting as a freshman or has been in the college football scene for their fourth and final year, CFB stats display all the nitty-gritty you may want to know about your favorite SEC quarterback. …


Teams such as Alabama, Georgia, and LSU consistently perform at much higher standards than other SEC teams such as Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and Missouri. This is influenced by the fact that these higher-performing teams get better recruits than the underperforming teams, and the data I have gathered from 247 sports supports this claim. Now, as most recruits, especially quarterbacks, don’t play or barely play for their first one or two seasons. …
