Statistics Sundays 3 - son of a statistician...!
Fact: this past Cinco de Mayo was overshadowed by many events that coincided with it
1) 60 years since one of the saddest historical events of all - the Holocaust 2) 60 years since the liberation from Nazi control of the Netherlands aka Holland 3) 05/05/05... an intriguing calendar bit of quirkiness that will not be seen again for a long, long time... (watch out next year for - 06/06/06 of course!!!).
Today's Big Cat Fact: Snow leopard's fur is long and woolly and helps protect the cat from the extreme cold of its generally mountainous habitat. Unfortunately, humans have hunted the snow leopard for this luxurious fur to the point where it is now endangered; only 4,500 to 5000 snow leopards remain.
Less fun FACT: Less than 50 Florida panthers exist in the wild.
