Show your support in any way that you can.

End prejudice and work for education.

Remember those who came before.

This disease has brought such tragedy to so many, and is isn't finished.

By the way, I saw a report that India has the most people infected with HIV, like 5.7 million, but only a small percentage know they have it, like 5% or something. Do you know how they generate the 5.7 million figure out of that? I don't doubt that there are a lot of unfortunate people in India stuck with this virus, but sometimes statistics puzzle me.

You're asking ME, an English teacher who freely admits that figuring tips is a challenge, to explain STATISTICS?!

I'm betting that the figures are gotten at by some sort of complicated formula that estimates a projection based on a known set of numbers. Really, though? I'm just guessin' here.

JKR, if you're reading this, can you shed some mathematical light?
