Hi Ai Ling,I came over from A List Bloggers to visit your blog. It’s a fascinating site. I could use a good math tutor for sure. I wish soneome like you had been around when I needed it. I became a writer to avoid math!I look forward to getting to know you through the forums.Sincerely,Angela Artemis Reply:April 23rd, 2010 at 11:27 amHi Angela, THANK YOU for coming by. As my niche is very much different from most folks in the club, I felt different too! Haha but I want to put what I have learnt into practice as well as learn from you and the rest of the club members.Cya at the club.

I have not really cseohn what kind of specialists I would like to work under, but I do believe that it would be fun to work in a Psychiatrist’s office. I originally was going for my B.A. in Psychology, but switched. There are so many to choose from that sound absolutely interesting. Such as working under an Internist or going simple and working under a Family practitioner. Even Gerontologist sounds like fun. I love the “aging population” and they have stories and much to teach.For the moment I am going to take this degree one step at a time and try to find the place that fits me best.

Is there a reason to put suspense before surprise (in the title i.e.)?

Fangraphs has been making graphs for baseball that are very much like the graphs you start your presentation with. Here is the graph for the last game of the season:
They break down both the win probability (in the top graph) and what you call the suspense (but they call the leverage) in the bottom graph. I believe their graphs are also based on forward simulation from each game state, and the probabilities used in simulation are historical averages.
Your tennis graphs make the point equally well, but it might be useful to have a set of graphs that sports experts made, rather than your more ad hoc (but very reasonable) approach. Some sports writers have also argued that win probability is doing a good job measuring the excitement of the game, consistent with your argument.
