Hear Dr. Marcia McNutt (President of the National Academy of Sciences) give the commencement address at Boston University (May 2019). She discusses the scientific method and the importance of scientific thinking in our current political environment.

Preceding this is a short discussion of an important statistical technique (correlation analysis). What is the 'hairy-bald rule' in Russia, anyway?
