I am not really a fan of doughnuts slight fib but as she buys them in the weekly shop I inadvertently eat them all.

Do you understand what I mean? So to get more specific, I want. The key environments we will touch on today and some points I have for you are shown below and categorised by home, workplace and training venue:.

The week is designed to promote the importance of eye health and the need for regular sight tests for all. Supporters are asked to challenge their senses and raise funds by hosting a dinner party with a difference, whether it be a blindfolded breakfast, a lights-out lunch, pitch black picnic, challenging cheese and wine tasting or dinner in the dark.

T is a shocking fact that deaf people are more likely to suffer ill health than other people, simply because it is harder for them to use the health services that many of us take for granted. An unfortunate number of patients have a fear of the dentist. But imagine going to the dentist and having no warning when treatment is about to begin, not getting full explanations of what to expect during treatment and being more sensitive than most to the vibration of a handpiece.
This is a reality for many deaf and hard-of-hearing patients. We at Healthwatch Wokingham Borough have made a commitment to better understand the experience of those with disabilities and sensory needs in accessing health and social care locally. This study has shown that Deaf people in Wokingham Borough are disadvantaged when trying to access primary care. Issues of access for Deaf patients are entirely avoidable by ensuring communication.
One way of transforming communication with a deaf patient would be to set up a quick response unit at the reception desk. This could be a webcam or Skype system on a computer, linking to a live interpretation service. To read our report go to our website www.

You have three letters in the control grid to start you off.
Enter them in the appropriate squares in the main grid, then use your knowledge of words to work out which letters should go in the missing squares. As you get the letters, fill in other squares with the same number in the main grid and control grid. Check off the alphabetical list of letters as you identify them.

Then there was the man of the hour, the time keeper and utility man Aaron.

They will be bringing along their friend Alex for a three-piece at our girls night.
Here, the teenager shares her musical journey. I also have played two years running at Bracknell ale and wine festival. I have also done a few singing competitions. I entered Teenstar in , and got through to the regional finals, and in I entered Open Mic UK and got through to the area finals one step away from the grand finals!
I played three tracks live on air. I have a real passion for music, and always have done since I was a little girl. I was told by a teacher at my school that I was never going to be good enough to sing when I was 13, and ever since then I have been proving him wrong. I have been doing gigs around the local area since I was I did my very first gig at the Cellar Bar at South Hill Park in Bracknell, which is why it holds such a special place in my heart.
How to beat Str8ts — Like Sudoku, no single number can repeat in any row or column. A straight is a set of numbers with no gaps but can be in any order, eg [4,2,3,5]. Clues in black cells remove that number as an option in that row and column, and are not part of any straight.
Glance at the solution to The solutions will be published here in the next issue. I guess you could say I aspire to be something like that. I was very proud of this event and wanted to do it again this year to make it better and better than before. Doors open at 7pm, and the first act is on shortly after.

And the team is confident they have broken their own Guinness World Record after hitting exactly 1, bullseyes over the weekend.
Taking it in turns over a hour period the dartsmen, roared on by a encouraging crowd at the Winnersh branch of the Royals British Legion on Sunday, spent 20 minutes a time at the board in pairs. Here, they would need to average 25 bullseyes, usually worth 50 points, or better if they were to topple their record-breaking target.
From this, Joe Lacey emerged as the star performer, hitting the bull times. The attempt also had to be filmed on two separate video cameras. Almost completely volunteer funded, it provides toys and learning equipment to children between the ages of 0 and seven. Novices, where nothing separated the two rivals after seven ends. The contest continued to follow the same pattern throughout, but it was. Rudd who had the accuracy needed to take the match, , and the title. The final score was Alan Symondson, meanwhile, was involved in two of the closest contests produced at the finals weekend.
So we don't miss out on all the fun we have got a team workout bonanza. The battle for class dominance is once again upon us. This Saturday we see the 5am, 6am, 9. All funds will go to Sarah's trip to Qatar but we are also throwing in a breakie wrap for everyone as a thank you. Be there at 5. Reminder that there are no classes this Saturday due to the running of Class Wars.
Kick off is 6am so be there at 5. Who will reign supreme this year and retain bragging rights for the next 12 months?? Only a few days until Saturday's Class Wars and there are just a couple of things to remember.. Sign on to a team roster 2. Wear your team colours 5am - White 6am - Red 9.
You will also receive a breakie wrap thanks to Tribe Cafe. Bring your 'A' game! Record lowest score. The year has just over a month to go and there will be lots of people heading away for holidays so before that happens we are going to sneak in some testing this week to benchmark our progress.

Kick off will be 6am so come in your team colours ready to roll. Share reps anyhow but complete in order. Next weekend Saturday November 30th is our Annual Class Wars and we can't wait for this year in the new box. The defending champs, Strick's 9. Joint winners from last year, B-Brown's 5am, are again the team to beat as they yet again stack themselves with numbers in an effort to buy another premiership. The afternoon crew have bolstered their ranks this year and under the tutelage of the wily old fox, Andrew Ross will be the ones to watch.
The 6am team, led by their fearless leader Brycey, are once again long shots to make any impact in this years championship and expect them to live up to their nickname of The Anchor, by finishing at the bottom! One thing is for sure if you have never experienced a Class Wars you are in for a treat.
It is highly competitive with big stakes on the line but it is a really fun couple of hours where the bulk of the CFTSV community get together to hang out. So make sure you get your name on a roster!! You will also get a breakie wrap after Class Wars is completed which has been kindly donated by Sal and The Tribe Cafe team.

If you don't own a Baydo shirt don't worry, of course we want you in the photo as well!! But let's send him into battle knowing how proud we all of what he has achieved already!
Challenge today is to get intensity on the machine but keep to the stroke rate!! Only a couple of days until Baydo hits the floor for his debut appearance at the CrossFit Games! This Saturday we would like to pay tribute to Baydo and his achievements one more time by doing our workout this Saturday with everyone wearing some sort of Baydo supporter T-shirt.
We are only going to run two classes again 5. What a fantastic weekend we had at the Townsville Allstars Alliance event. Congratulations to our many teams that competed throughout the weekend with a special mention to Rossi, Nickers, Naree, Griff, Nic and Tommy who took second in the Intermediate division and to Riki, Bryce, Shane, Ellen, Mary and Tash who took out the Advanced competition.
Big shout out to the Allstars Army.. Can't tell you how much I love you guys and how much I appreciated you time and effort over the weekend!! With over 50 teams registered it is going to be a huge weekend so if you are not competing make sure you come down and support one of our many teams having a crack. We have a wonderful team of CFTSV men and women that have put their hands up to assist in the running of the event over the weekend. To you guys thank you and stay tuned for more info through the week which will include times you will be needed etc..
Unfortunately with the event running from very early Saturday through to Sunday afternoon there will be no Saturday CrossFit classes or Yoga on Sunday. Apologies for any inconvenience. Run m rest 40 seconds Run m rest 30 seconds Run m rest 20 seconds Run m.
A number of people have volunteered their time to give us a hand over the weekend to keep things running smoothly. If you are one of those wonderful people please add your name to the whiteboard so we can touch base and let you times you will be required.
We will not be running Saturday classes over that weekend so be sure to put that into your diaries as well :. Run m each then 30 Synchro Thrusters Baydo has settled in well over in the States and is getting plenty of air time while he is hanging out with Katrin and Ben.
Here is another great video put together by the CompTrain crew. When they get back in they will each perform 3 rounds of 12 Wall balls and 6 Burpees. Only 1 partner at a time will work and athlete must complete full round before next athlete begins. Once all 3 athletes have completed their 3 rounds the team moves to the barbell to complete 30 Clean and jerks at the first weight. Once completed the team will head back on a m to repeat the first part. When they get back to the barbell the weight of the Clean and jerk will increase.
Continue in this fashion for the 30 mins. Score is total Clean and jerks. Of course by now you are all aware that Baydo took out the Open and earned himself National Champion honours and in the process booked his ticket for a shot at the ultimate test in the sport of CrossFit, The CrossFit Games. The support he has received from you everyone at CrossFit Townsville has blown him away and I know he will be forever grateful for everyone that has chipped in.
The Games is not until the end of July though so in the meantime Baydo will be heading to the East coast of the States where he will eat, sleep and live training for the next 6 weeks. He will be keeping us posted of his endeavours with a Vlog that will come through our Facebook page so stay tuned for that. Baydo, we wish you all the best mate and words can't describe how proud we are. Everyone has seen how hard you have worked but I know what everyone sees only scratches the surface of what you have and continue to put yourself through to be in the position you are in.
The 3. All the best to the Pig who heads to Wollongong this weekend to tackle the best CrossFitters in the country at the Down Under Championship. We will keep you updated with his progress throughout the weekend! After a season off recovering after his debut CrossFit Games appearance in , Llewy has worked himself to a standstill to be back in the type of shape that has him as the fittest man of his age in Australia. We continue to be inspired by you mate and are very proud of your achievements!
Don't forget this Monday is a Public Holiday and we will be running with classes at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm. We have been in the new facility for 4 weeks now and what a whirlwind 4 weeks it has been. Everyone is enjoying the new space and equipment and it has certainly lit the fire within for a number of people. With a bigger space and more equipment comes a little more expense and moving forward we have a planned pricing increase to take effect as of July 1st This is something we haven't done in more than 6 years so we are little overdue and more importantly we have the coaching expertise, space and equipment to justify it.
To further add value though we are now including our Fitness classes as part of your membership as well as super flexible open gym times and Yoga on Sunday mornings. We are also doing away with any cost of suspending memberships, you need only give us some notice to put it on hold. Our couples and student discounts will still apply. Come July 1st if you currently have a membership on direct debit it will be automatically adjusted to the new pricing. We appreciate your support and understanding with this and if anyone has any issues Dan will be more than happy to discuss it further.
We know Anzac Day is a massive day for all our Defence personnel so we wanted to make sure you guys didn't miss out and we are putting on the Aussie Hero workout 'Langley'. This is our way of showing our appreciation for what you and the rest of the ADF past and present do for our great country.
It is odd how suffering through a crazy workout is how we say thank you but it is a great way to get some perspective on life and that 30 or 40 mins of hurt is nothing compared to the ultimate price paid by our heroes. Anzac Day is a very special occasion for many people and particularly so here at CrossFit Townsville where we have many great men and women who serve our country as part of the Australian Defence Force. We know Anzac Day is a big day for all our Defence personnel and they might not get to the box so we are backing up with another Aussie hero 'Langley' on Saturday in what we are going to call our 'Defence Appreciation Day'.
Reminder that Saturday we will be honouring another Aussie Hero and giving our awesome band of Defence men and women who may have missed our Anzac Day WOD the opportunity to come in and bust out a tough workout. Eat plenty of chocolate but be ready to rumble on Easter Monday. Just a heads up that we expect the 4pm to be a very big class but we would ideally like to spread our numbers across the 3 classes so consider the 5 or 6pm option :.
Classes for Good Friday are on at 5am, 6am, 7am and 9. If you are going away for Easter we hope you and your family have a fantastic weekend. Drive carefully, be safe and we will see you next week! Just a reminder that this weekend is the Easter long weekend. Don't panic though.. Good Friday April 19th - 5am, 6am, 7am, 9.
We hope you have a great Easter and we look forward to seeing you in the gym if you are not going away! This week we are back to our Monday Run Day and it will also be our first Run Day out of the new box so we just have a couple of things to bring to attention to ensure everything goes nice and smoothly..
Firstly, with regards to parking we ask if on a Monday you could refrain from parking on the road in front of the gym and instead you seek parking in either the front or back carparks. We know our classes are busy so there are not always spaces in either car park so the road is the only option and if you are going to do that please try and make sure you do it in front of the vacant block next to our building.
Just a reminder if we could please leave the opposite side of the road vacant so the folks from the businesses across that way have space to park their cars :. Secondly, just a big reminder to stay safe and tight to the curb whenever we have a running day. We are lucky that Parkside Drive is a very wide and quiet street so there is less traffic than on our old track but it pays to stay switched on at all times. Signing in has been great this week and we look forward to it continuing to be on point.
Remember our coaches want to spend time coaching you and helping you progress and having to race around trying to figure out who forgot to sign in takes time away from us doing that. Thank you again for a magnificent opening week and we look forward to hooking in even harder this week!! Row 2k switch out every m Synchro Wall balls Bike erg 4k switch out every m Synchro Burpees.
What a day yesterday!! Our opening day was the biggest day we have ever had. Thank you for coming out to support us, we appreciate it! It's no joke folks.. But first some reflective thoughts.. We moved into the High Range Drive facility March after running most of our early sessions in the car park of our previous building.
The members around in those early days will remember a very narrow but adequate space for the keen to tackle this 'fad' known as CrossFit. We knew we weren't playing with some new toy though and quickly word spread, our classes grew and it wasn't long before we were looking for an upgrade. Thankfully that came and we were able to secure an extra square metres and with that we were able to step things up. Things continued to flourish and thanks to my great mate and CrossFit mentor Brett Fforde we were able to establish a community of hard working, disciplined and motivated athletes.
Even more than this though is the way our community since day dot has supported one another across every endeavour. So fast forward all the way to the beginning of this year and things just exploded. This year we have not only seen record numbers in our CrossFit classes but growth across all our programs has been phenomenal and we knew it was time for us to repay the unbelievable faith you have shown in us by taking things to another level. A month ago we signed a lease to go into the old Pitstop building and and to say there hasn't been some small reservations, doubts and uncertainty would be lying.
Add to that the intimidating thought of moving 10 years worth of equipment into a new establishment. Enter you.. We came up with the plan to do a moving workout and I knew how great our people are so I thought we would get a decent turnout and fair bit of gear moved in the hour and then it was going to be a good, old slog to get the rest of the equipment across to the new place. How wrong I was Then not only was the gear moved but the efficiency with how things were done was just downright astonishing!!
I sat back at one stage and just watched as person after person brought in gear dumped it off and looked for the next job to do and thought, how the hell did we get so lucky to find these incredible people. Just a reminder that this Saturday will be our last session at the High Range Drive address and we will only be running the 1 class.
We are looking for a massive turnout with the goal to move around 10 kg of equipment in an hour. The bonus is you will get your very first sneak peek of the new place too It will be a sad day to say good bye to the old girl as she has been very, very good to us and has filled us with so many special memories. But it is onwards and upwards and we know you are all going to love our new facility. Kick off for the 'Last Stand' is 6am and we hope we see you all there ready to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in!!
This week's Saturday workout is our very last session at High Range Drive with our impending move to the Parkside Drive facility. There is nothing fancy about what we are going to do.. We are only running one class, 6am, so we are hoping for a massive turnout to help us in this arduous task. The bonus is you will get your first glimpse of our new facility that we will be operating from as of Monday 1st April.
Make sure you sign in and let's go out with a bang by smashing our biggest class record of 80 to pieces! Anyone keen to hang around after is very welcome as we have the rest of our gear to move. If you have a ute bring it along as it will be greatly appreciated :. There was plenty of speculation around what would be programmed given the fact we tested pulling strength last week with Bar muscle-ups but true to their 'F-You World' attitude HQ has kept with tradition by giving us a Fran style couplet.
Only difference on this one is the volume is more than double Fran which makes this workout a test of stamina and strategy. Whether you are re-doing or not please give consideration to your hands as we need them this weekend for our Saturday moving WOD haha. But seriously manage the volume with some smarts and some thought around not ruining your training week because you are being stubborn.
Thanks to all that attended our Friday Night Lights.. It's because of you guys that our FNL is like no other with its electric atmosphere and cauldron like feel. The good news is that there are plenty of other opportunities for you to explore your competitive side with the Allstar Alliance Online Pairs next on the agenda followed in July by the Allstar Alliance Townsville event which will this year be held in our very own facility.
Then there is Twins in September and finally the Open again in its new place in October. Partners continue swapping until Wall balls are completed. We go into the last workout of the February Open with our main man B-Brown still doing his thing up in the very top half of the leaderboard - and we don't need to remind you all of what is at stake!
So this Friday Night Lights is a special one and we need you all to be there to not only help B-Brown but to get behind each and every one of our athletes competing in this years Open. Another Friday Night Lights saw another round of epic performances. If you don't have strict handstand push-ups yet you will surely be inspired after this workout to work on them and get them in the kit bag.
If you have strict handstand push-ups this workout is all about having awareness of your capabilities and using that to maximise your performance. We saw plenty of people go out too big here and pay the ultimate price with some very fatigued and tired shoulder in the back end. Rep management is hugely important in this one to make sure you keep chipping away at those reps. Can't wait to see everyone have a crack at this one on Re-do Monday :. Friday Night Lights is on again as we head to hump week of the Open.
We need to tidy some things up as far as our registering for heats goes so know that there will only be 7 spots per time slot for both men and women. Wednesday is our Bring A Friend Day and your chance to share our great program and community with someone that hasn't been to CrossFit Townsville before. We have a sign up sheet at the front desk so be sure to add your friends name and what class you intend to bring them along to.
The workout we have planned is a partner workout so it's the perfect opportunity for them to experience the hard working and super encouraging culture we have developed at CFTSV. If they like what we do be sure to inform them that our next Fundamentals course begins Monday 11th March. Week 2 of the Open sees a repeat from where our capacity to cycle the barbell is tested. Limiting factor for a lot of athletes will be the load and in particular the load at block 3 - We need to have this in mind as we strategise in the first blocks and not go out too hard.
Breaking the T2B from the get go is a great tip as this workout is not won here or at the Double unders. How tough you can be on the barbell, in particular during the block of 85kg cleans for men and Like last week don't forget what Friday night taught you and use that to beat your score. Swap rower after every 50 Deadlifts, every 40 Front squats, and every 30 Shoulder to overhead.
Don't forget to sign into a heat via the app. Again we only have 7 spots available per heat as we have no idea what the workout will be but there are 5 waiting list spots. In the event the workout is something we can facilitate more than 7 males and 7 females we will add in people on the wait list. Please also remember that the heat times are just a guide.
If there is a 7 minute AMRAP programmed we will move through much quicker and if you aren't there your place will be taken by someone else. Our first Friday Night Lights was a big success with an awesome line up of folks registering to give Wall balls and Calories in a 15 minute AMRAP was a challenging way to begin the Open but it was met with fierce determination by all athletes. In all we have a tick over athletes registered this year which is just phenomenal considering with so much on and what everyone has endured in the last month we haven't really given the Open much attention.
What it highlights for us is that people want to road test their training and the Open is the perfect vehicle for that. Guaranteed the Open is going to find your weaknesses and give you the right tonic to push your training to another level moving forward. With Go out too hot on the erg and you risk blowing the legs up on the Wall balls. Go out cold and you will lose time that is very hard to get back as the workout progresses. If you did do If you are doing the Open remember you need to be judged by someone else doing the Open.
If you are not doing the Open you will still get to have a taste of what it is all about but with a limited number of ergos we cannot guarantee you will get to row. You will of course be given an alternative which will be the bike :. Reminder there is no Friday afternoon class this week or for the next 5 weeks as we move into the CrossFit Open season..
If you have registered for the Open your first chance for a crack at If possible we want you there for the duration as the only people eligible to judge our Open athletes are our other Open athletes. This will be a fantastic 5 weeks as we watch our CFTSV community test their boundaries and if you want in on the action sign up at games. What a whirlwind start to it has been!
Our numbers continue to blow us away despite the hardships of the last few weeks and to all those affected by the floods we hope you are getting back on your feet quickly. It was very inspiring seeing our CFTSV community getting out and about to help folks who had been less fortunate. A very, very long time personal training client of ours that doesn't do CrossFit with us, couldn't believe the assistance he received despite not knowing any of the people helping out.
We were very lucky at the box and didn't have any water through but you may have noticed our handicap toilet received some damage. Unfortunately that means our shower has been out of action too and we apologise for any inconvenience this may be creating for people. All I will say is hang in there as we are hopeful that it will be fixed quickly and furthermore to that with any luck we are hoping to make an exciting announcement in the next couple of weeks that will change the game totally!!! The competitive season is well and truly underway with both Jordan and Bayden competing in the Australian CrossFit Championships where Baydo finished an incredible 2nd and Jordan 11th.
Then thanks to the wonderful efforts of our community, Jordan also headed to Cape Town to compete in the Fittest in Cape Town. The type of numbers she is on the way to could see Sarah earn herself a spot in the Olympic squad!!! We are so proud of you Sarah and what you have achieved so far and can't wait to see what's next!! Pictured Rik, Cal, Elanze, Sam is our crew that headed to Atherton to compete in the Red Dirt Teams comp this weekend just gone and at the time of writing they were more than holding their own.
Well done to those guys for making the effort to get up there and throwdown!! Then of course the madness of the Open begins this Friday night! What does that mean?? Well for starters we won't have a Friday night class for the next 5 weeks. Apologies for the inconvenience here guys, especially as we have had some whooping numbers to our Friday night classes but I encourage you to sign up for the Open and test yourself against the rest of the CrossFit community in an event that never ceases to amaze.
So instead of Friday night classes we have Friday Night Lights. This is where anyone registered for the Open can sign up for a heat and have their crack at whatever is programmed each week. We are only allowing athletes registered in the Open to compete on Friday nights so I encourage you to jump onto the games.
Later this week heats will be available via our app so stay tuned for that. Welcome to our first group of Fundamentals that have already come through their course and entered into main classes. A big welcome also to all our new members that have started with us and we hope your year has started strongly. Our next Fundamentals course begins March 11th and keep your ears out for a Bring a Friend Day just before that.. We have made some adjustments to our CrossFit Kids schedule and in doing so we have cracked record numbers especially in our Teens group.
During the KB swing set the breath must be held. If you miss a set restart back at the beginning. We are not too worried about how many rounds are completed.. Classes today for the Australia Day Public Holiday are 4pm, 5pm and 6pm. Classes will be capped and there is no guarantee you will be able to slide in on the day so please sign in :.
P1 does m run, 16 KB swings, 16 Pull-ups, 16 Front squats then tags P2 who does the round of 14 reps. Continue in this fashion for 2 rounds. Next athlete begins when athlete in front completes Power cleans. The first two workouts have looked juicy but this last one is a Pig special!
Don't forget to register prior to Saturday to help give us an idea on numbers and heat allocations. Breakfast is being sponsored by one of our legendary members Troy Standley who is a local real estate agent with a massive man crush on the Pig and wanted to help out.
Thank you champion!! Just a reminder this Saturday we don't have normal classes and instead we have our PIG Throwdown which is our fundraiser for Jordan who is off to Cape Town in a couple of weeks to compete in the Fittest in Cape Town CrossFit sanctional. The PIG Throwdown will be 3 workouts and we have 3 levels to accomodate all abilities. All you need to do is jump on to the app and register in whatever level you feel most comfortable.
We will kick off at 6. Thank you for your continued support!! This is a great opportunity to test our current numbers in the Squat, Press and Dead and set some goals to work towards. We are limited by time in this session so come prepared with a plan and spend some time mobilising prior to ensure you are ready to roll.
You will get 3 true attempts at each lift where your first lift is a lift you know you can get, your second lift equal to or close to a PR and your third lift hopefully setting a new PR. Hopefully you have had a little time to digest workout number Let's take a look at workout 2 for Saturday's Pig Throwdown and the picture to the side is what we are all likely to look like..
Don't forget to sign in to a class on the app with the level that best suits your ability. Talk to the coaches if you are unsure. There will be a base level, an intermediate level and an advanced level. This is an opportunity to have some fun and test yourself with 3 short and spicy workouts.
To be involved jump online and sign in to one of the Saturday classes beginner, intermediate or advanced. We would like to be able to lock down heats Friday arvo so the sooner you can sign in to one of those options the better. Workout 1 has been listed below in each category. Read through carefully to decide what level will best suit your ability. If you are still unsure come and see one of the coaches and we will steer you in the right direction. Workout 2 will be released tomorrow and Workout 3 on Thursday.
We thank you once again for your amazing support and look forward to seeing you on Saturday! The New Year has well and truly kicked off and it's time for us get some data points on our fitness. So this week we will give you guys the opportunity to check in with your running conditioning with a 1 mile test, your max strength with the 'CrossFit Total' and your capacity to put it altogether in the classic CrossFit benchmark 'Helen'.

The show will be an introspective look at what it means to connect in our modern world with these excellent musicians. Tickets: cwso. This lavish, eye-popping local production is not to be missed. Central Wisconsin School of Ballet has presented this annual holiday dance extravaganza for decades, always visually impressive and always to big crowds. It looks professional because it is, with professional guest dancers rounding out the cast.
Every scene rings a new professional-level wonder to the stage, and the lush sets and dreamy costumes make it a must-see. The tale of resurrected goodness is not only a celebration of the transformative power of the Christmas spirit, but a lesson in human compassion. Sure, you know the story. But experiencing it live on stage somehow makes the tale so much more powerful.
Or join an organized outing, most with candlelit trails, treats and maybe a fire. There are at least six organized hikes in the Wausau area this season. Then enjoy hot chocolate, cider and marshmallows around the campfire. Meet at the new building, the Friends Gathering Space. Flashlights and headlamps suggested. Free, but state park vehicle sticker required for park entry. Organized by Friends of Rib Mountain. New this year is the Sweetheart Walk on Feb.
Details at monkgardens. The Merrill Ice Drags were founded back in so local men and women could have automobile-style racing fun in the winter. Since then, the sport has become more competitive with record spectator attendance. Racing on the ice, cars have managed to get up to Racing starts at noon.
Granite Peak again hosts an array of events all season long, open to the public, skiers and non-skiers alike. The ski hill rings in with a New Years Eve Party that will blow your moisture-wicking socks off. Get your groove on to music by Chicago dance band Hello Weekend, with black lights, glow items galore and a balloon drop at midnight.
These performances feature local musicians, often playing acoustically. A few concert highlights:. The Grand always hosts several holiday acts in November and December. Two classically trained musicians from the Midwest joined forces to create this alternative folk duo.
Cellist Olivia Diercks and violinist Karla Dietmeyer perform their original music in a classical crossover style. With influences from classical, Americana and Irish fiddle, this twosome has great ears for creating and executing their tunes.
They celebrate the holiday season with inventive arrangements of holiday favorites, creating unique and unexpected musical experiences. The majority of the action—the snow slide, ice skating, horse-drawn wagon rides, curling demos and more—happen right on the Block.

Negated hits reduce Multiplier by x0. Price reduction only applies to pickups found in Shops, Big Shops and Gambling rooms.

Extra rooms are added to the map that give the player helpful items. This can include pickups or weapons.
Curses are keywords that can appear on Cursed Weapons. However, this comes with the downside that there will always be one keyword on the weapon, the curse, that will negatively impact the run while the player is holding the weapon.

Around the border is a timer in the form of a burning rope slowly going to a skull at the bottom, after which the timer has ended. Blue orbs are scattered around the tiles.
Collecting all of them before the timer runs out wins you the game. Often there are spikes or red blocks that kill the player if the player runs into them. The higher the difficulty, the faster the timer runs out. The ship is stuck in the middle of the screen and has a shield to block incoming flames with.
They only come in from the top, left, right and bottom of the screen. The higher the difficulty, the faster the fires come in. The ship has to cross 3 lines of fire blocks quickly without hitting them. These fire blocks move sideways. The player loses too if the timer runs out. The higher the difficulty, the faster the fire blocks move. The ship is placed in a maze and has to reach the blue orb before the timer runs out.
The walls are made of invisible ghosts that only before visible if the ship is in a 2 tile radius of the ghosts. Two lines of blocks move around the player. Some of them have blue orbs on them and the player has to hit them. The other blocks have skulls on them and hitting them kills the player. Eight numbers are on tiles next to the player. Depending on the prompt, the player has to pick the number that is the highest or lowest of the bunch before the timer run out.
The ship has to dodge bombs until the timer has ended. The higher the difficulty, the faster the bombs blow up.

From it's body, eyes open up that shoot towards the player. Once the pattern finishes, it disappears, then attempts to reappear on top of the player, either emitting radial bursts or summoning three Lost Souls once it has appeared. The center segment has a yellow eye.
Attacks: Funnel's eye periodically fires semicircular bursts toward the player's side of the room. Random segments shoot large bullets at the player, but every fourth bullet is replaced by a large fireball which radially explodes into embers on impact. The boss dies once the center segment has been destroyed. Attacks: Attacks the player from behind the screen first and cannot be damaged in this state. He will either shoot fireballs randomly at but close to the player or strike directly at the player and these fireballs will explode into more bullets.
If all Focuses are destroyed or after it remotely detonates all remaining Focuses, it rapidly shoots long bullets toward the player, then teleports to a random location and shoots two curving shotgun bursts toward the player. After throwing enough, he recalls them to come back. While Idol is stationary, the Lost Souls shoot bullets radially.
Idol occasionally shifts position ignoring terrain , firing four large shots at the player and preventing the Lost Souls from firing temporarily every time it does so. Idol shifts positions more frequently as it approaches death. Sometimes bullet storms are followed up by an additional targeted burst of bullets.

Death Notes: Fish explodes. Sufficient damage to a segment removes the ice and reveals a metal core. Fight Music: The Extraordinary Phase 1 Notes: After emerging from the sewer grate in the background, Ice Wyrm moves back and forth at the top of the screen, raining down icicles or icy laser bullets and using other attacks.
At low health the ice on the head is broken and it instead chases the player in an attempt to deal contact damage, trailing ice bullets and occasionally using shotgun and rapid-fire attacks. Death Notes: Ice Wyrm's segments explode in sequence from tail to head. Devourer Level: Maintenance System Enemy Type: Creature Appearance: Body: Rows of toothed flesh segments at the top and bottom of the screen with a ringed background linking segment pairs.
Front: flesh jaws at vertical extremes. Fleshy eyeballs enter from the left side of the screen and shoot various bullet patterns - these eyeballs are the Devourer's only vulnerable objects during this phase. Occasionally, the Devourer itself will release a shotgun of blood. Phase 2 Notes: Devourer moves to the right and engulfs the player, and a large core appears from the left which shoots bullets to the right.
Damaging the core hurts Devourer and causes it to contort into a sinusoidal shape. As the boss health bar depletes, the contortion becomes more extreme. Death Notes: The core explodes and Devourer falls apart. The large orb has four blue pie-shaped armor plates and a red orb in its center. Fight Music: Singularity 1st Phase , Apparition 2nd Phase Phase 1 Notes: Armor Tac enters from the top of the screen and often stays near the top for the majority of this phase.
It shoots bullets, fires a laser downward, and smashes the edges of the screen with its legs to shoot bullets from the sides. Sometimes, it jumps down to the bottom half of the screen and stays there for a few attacks before crawling back up to the top half.
Depleting the boss health bar destroys the legs and causes the core to fall off the bottom of the screen. Phase 2 Notes: The core re-emerges from the bottom of the screen and uses a new set of bullet and electric attacks, occasionally flinging itself into the walls to summon bullets.
Death Notes: The core loses its armor plates, then explodes. Oblivion, creature with an eye inside that keeps changing into a mouth Fight Music: The 4th Phase 1 Notes: Genesis reveals itself and starts the fight off with a bunch of different bullet attacks. Phase 2 Notes: Oblivion shows up and devours Genesis.

Death Notes: Oblivion and Genesis die into an explosion. Reactor Level: The Bellows Enemy Type: Mech Appearance: Large metal torso with guns at the shoulders and a large orange eye where the neck would be Fight Music: Singularity Phase 1 Notes: Reactor reveals itself and begins to fire a variety of bullet attacks from its guns, occasionally firing barrages of electricity from the top of the screen or releasing swarms of Crazy Ghosts from openings near the guns.
The eye is the only vulnerable point of this boss. At half health, the boss closes its eye and releases two Heavy Sentinels, only re-opening the eye and resuming its normal attacks once these two enemies have been destroyed.
Death Notes: The guns and eye explode, but the rest of the boss remains. The Elevator Room is accessed by passing through the slot where the eye used to be. The left and right edges of the screen are lined with red cannons. Fight Music: The Extraordinary Phase 1 Notes: Two fire streams come down from above before the drone makes its entrance from the top of the screen while emitting fire streams from its boxes.
The drone uses a variety of fire-themed bullet attacks and occasionally fires the wall cannons. At low health, all of the wall cannons get destroyed and the drone begins to emit fire streams and pseudo-sprinkler attacks from its boxes. Death Notes: The drone loses a chunk of its head, then explosively crashes into the bottom of the screen. At low health, the head explodes, the hands begin to emit endless fire sprays, and the neck shoots bullet shotguns and sprays for the rest of the fight.
Death Notes: The hands explode, and the torso crashes into the bottom of the screen. The torso has a face in the center. On Hard Mode, the face is replaced by a large orb. Fight Music: Accursed One Phase 1 Notes: Overlord, floating, fades in from the background, then begins to cycle through a series of attack patterns.
Unlike many other bosses, Overlord always uses its attack patterns in a certain order in all of its phases. Phase 2 Notes: Much of Overlord's shoulders and legs explodes. The remainder begins to quickly cycle through a new series of attack patterns. The boss moves quickly in this phase. Phase 3 Notes: Overlord loses its legs, forcing it to levitate in mid-air once more.
The boss employs a final series of three attack patterns. Unlike in previous phases, these patterns are not looped - the last pattern, once it begins, is the only one used for the rest of the fight. Death Notes: Overlord, after several seconds, explodes.
Teleportation is disabled at this point. If the appropriate conditions have been met, the player ship can travel into the Elevator Room to continue the current run. Traveling through the passage to a room other than the Elevator Room ends the run as a level 5 win, prompting a performance assessment screen which the player can browse before returning to the Hub.
Tutorial Boss. Seal Bosses. He only gives interesting lines three times every time the Hub is entered yes, you can get him to speak again by re-doing the tutorial or exiting to menu and re-entering the game , and he speaks about different things depending on which option is selected: Advice: If you returned to the Hub due to a death, Kleines will talk about the cause of death usually an enemy if you select this option before he stops saying interesting lines. Otherwise, Kleines will talk about some of the advanced aspects of the game, such as Keywords weapon modifiers , Secret Rooms, or specific weapons.
Gossip: Kleines will talk about the various levels of the Monolith you have visited or muse about other matters. Shop: Kleines offers various permanent purchases for Debris based on the progress you have made through the Monolith. In Kleines's shop, Debris is drawn from your cumulative supply.
This cumulative supply is increased every time you die or win by the run's score which is exactly the amount of Debris you collected in a run without regard for whether it was spent. Furnish: Selecting this option when it appears the first few times leads to Kleines adding new pieces of furniture to the Hub. Once one elevates their total spent cumulative Debris over ,G and re-enters the Hub, selecting this option allows one to change the furniture in the Hub at any time. When Kleines is asked for gossip, he will give one of these lines.
The list is not comprehensive - the quotes given in Levels also qualify as gossip. Rubble: "Dig through the rubble, will ya? Never know what kind of shinies are embedded in them. Reminds me of better times. Not gonna pretend I'm the sole reason you've got this far.
Just a really major one. Sold them a bunch of headwear some time ago. Made a killing. Bring me back some pics, OK? Why am I here? It's complicated. View it as an opportunity to learn the ropes in a relatively more friendly environment. I mean, can you even rust? What are you even made of? Plates, cables, nuts, bolts, capacitors, batteries, coils I've got the vision, the talent, the drive.
All that's left is the materials and some other stuff. Extra ammo and damage makes life easier in the long run. Expensive as that might be That your relative or something? Kleines offers a variety of permanent unlocks in his shop, all of which are purchased using your cumulative Debris supply. Most of these unlocks are not initially available, however, only appearing in the shop once sufficient progress has been made within the Monolith.
Browsing Kleines's shop does not require nor consume any interesting lines. Consecrated Weapons Unlock Requirements: Destroy Undead-type enemies and bosses across all runs Description: "Consecrated Weapons are extra powerful against the undead.
Antimagic Weapons Unlock Requirements: Destroy Mage-type enemies and bosses across all runs Description: "Antimagic Weapons make short work of spellcasters. Akashic Weapons Unlock Requirements: Destroy Construct-type enemies and bosses across all runs Description: "Akashic Weapons do particular harm to constructs. Disrupting Weapons Unlock Requirements: Destroy Mech-type enemies and bosses across all runs Description: "Disrupting Weapons deal heightened damage to mechanical foes.
Swords only. New weapon every room. Description: "Please just get him out of my inventory. And future. Here you can save reports of runs and practice bosses you have already beaten at least once. Pulsar Unlock Requirements: Complete your first run, win or loss Description: "Pulsar is a steady mid-range weapon. Thunderhead Unlock Requirements: Secure your first level 5 win.
Description: "Thunderhead is a heavy area denial weapon. Railgun Unlock Requirements: Complete your first run, win or loss. Description: "Railgun is weapon of pure precision. The Drill Unlock Requirements: Secure your first level 6 win. Description: "Drill is hybrid emissary of death. Spear Unlock Requirements: Secure your first level 6 win. Description: "Spear skewers enemies for extra damage.
Donations Unlock Requirements: Destroy 5 Hermits across all runs? Description: "One-time care package delivery. Use when required. Caps at 9,,G Effect: A Bandana Hermit now appears in the starting room of all levels which does not disappear upon leaving the room. When the player's accumulated Debris the sum of all cumulative Debris ever gained with no regard for purchases from Kleines reaches certain milestones, Kleines will, when prompted, add pieces of furniture to the Hub - this action does not require nor consume any interesting lines.
Once the player enters the Hub after having spent at least , cumulative Debris across all shopping sessions with Kleines, the Furnish option allows the player to change their furniture at any time. Trophies are decorations in the Hub which commemorate the player's progress through and success within the Monolith.
Trophies and the table on which they stand appear the next time the Hub is entered after Kleines arrives. Levels Trophy. Once a jukebox has been installed in the Hub, the player can play music that has been encountered at least once. There are 61 tracks in total, and Skully will comment on what the jukebox is playing on interaction if he is present.
Must be a hit on the surface. I can listen to it for hours. How am I supposed to spook people to this tune? Truly a treasure. And reversed. Typical Context:??? Isn't it from that one game? Except it's none of them! You seem familiar with this track. As a skull, I approve of these tunes! Bad things happened. No really. Whatever it is, it's yours alone. But so do all bad things, too. Well, the song's still playing, isn't it. I wonder what kind of music it has stored on it.
Sounds about as I expected. Where does it play? Some Morse code. I put this track on to ward off intruders. But I sure like music. Gotta say it's nicer than expected. Maybe we'll meet again someday. And those we couldn't.
You did your best. Seals are enigmatic items which are used to open the way to the elevator leading down to the sixth and final level of the Monolith. Each of four seals can only be picked up once - upon pickup, the seal is instantly and permanently placed in the appropriate slot in the Sanctum's after-boss room. Seals only begin appearing once the Overlord has been defeated at least once.
One seal is given upon the Overlord's defeat, appearing alongside the usual boss room pickups. It occupies the upper-middle slot of the Sanctum's after-boss room once collected. Kleines the cat merchant has a second seal for sale at a price of , Debris drawn out of your cumulative Debris supply like with other permanent purchases.
It occupies the top slot of the Sanctum's after-boss room once collected. Attempting to purchase the seal will initiate the Bloke boss fight and greatly inflate the item's price. Once you have negotiated a more reasonable price and successfully purchased the seal, it is permanently placed into the bottom slot of the Sanctum's after-boss room.
A Shrine in the Maintenance System rare , Bellow rare or Sanctum guaranteed will offer a fourth seal, stating that the cost for unlocking the seal is facing death. Taking the deal will initiate the Renegade boss fight. Winning the fight prompts some dialogue and allows the player to take the seal, which occupies the lower-middle slot of the Sanctum's after-boss room once collected.
However, playing in Hard Mode makes all enemies and bosses more difficult and changes the level 6 boss as well as the ending of a level 6 win. All sources of weapons only give Swords. Apart from these changes, Sword Mode is the same as Normal Mode. Instead, it is always equipped with a random 2-Keyword weapon with unlimited ammo, and the weapon changes on room changes and boss summons.
Weapon Chambers do not appear, and weapon drops are replaced by HP drops. Ammo pickups do not appear in most rooms and Salvage does not appear in Upgrade Terminals. Digging up secret and shortcuts costs 2 charges.

In words, if Xn D u, we jump to a randomly chosen neighbor of u at time n C 1. In For a concrete example, consider Example 1. A chess board is an 8 by 8 grid of squares. A knight moves by walking two steps in one direction and then one step in a perpendicular direction. By patiently examining all of the possibilities, one sees that the degrees of the vertices are given by the following table. Lines have been drawn to make the symmetries more apparent.
Let Xn be a realization of the Markov chain starting from the stationary distribution, i. Then Ym is a Markov chain with transition probability pO. We need to calculate the conditional probability. To help explain the concept, 1. It is named for two of the authors of the fundamental papers on the topic. One written by Nicholas Metropolis and two married couples with last names Rosenbluth and Teller and the other by Hastings This is a very useful tool for computing posterior distributions in Bayesian statistics Tierney , reconstructing images Geman and Geman , and investigating complicated models in statistical physics Hammersley and Handscomb It would take us too far afield to describe these applications, so we will content ourselves to describe the simple idea that is the key to the method.
We begin with a Markov chain q. To obtain many samples, we output the state at widely separated times. Of course there is an art of knowing how long is long enough to wait between outputting the state to have independent realizations.
If we are interested in the expected value of a particular function, then if the chain is irreducible and the state space is finite Theorem 1. To generate the jumps we will use a symmetric random walk q. Since q is symmetric r. In this case we can let q. The Metropolis—Hastings algorithm has its roots in statistical physics. A typical problem is the Ising model of ferromagnetism. If we made the lattice three dimensional, we could think of the atoms in an iron bar.
At the boundaries of the square spins have only three neighbors. There are several options for dealing with this: i we consider the spins outside to be 0, or ii we could specify a fixed boundary condition such as all spins C.
The sum is largest in case i when all of the spins agree orPin case ii when all spins are C. For the proposed jump distribution we let q. If x agrees with k of its four neighbors, the ratio is exp. In words p. The Metropolis—Hastings algorithm can also be used to minimize complicated functions.
Consider, for example, the traveling salesman problem, which is to find the shortest or least expensive route that allows one to visit all of the cities on a list. The proposal kernel q is chosen to modify the list in some way. For example, we might move a city to another place on the list or reverse the order of a sequence of cities. One must do this slowly or the process will get stuck in local minima. For more of simulated annealing, see Kirkpatrick et al. All irreducible two state chains have stationary distributions that satisfy detailed balance so we begin with the case of three states.
We say that the cycle condition is satisfied if given a cycle of states x0 ; x1 ; : : : ; xn D x0 with p. There is a stationary distribution that satisfies detailed balance if and only if 1. We first show that if p has a stationary distribution that satisfies the detailed balance condition, then the cycle condition holds.
By the reasoning used to derive 1. Combine these to get a loop that begins and ends at a. Our first example shows one problem that can prevent the convergence of pn. Likewise, if the number is even, then it will be odd on the next one step. This alternation between even and odd means that it is impossible to be back where we started after an odd number of steps.
In symbols, if n is odd, then pn. To see that the problem in the last example can occur for multiples of any number N consider: Example 1. We will explain the name in Sect. To check that this definition works correctly, we note that in Example 1. Similarly, in Example 1. The name refers to the fact that 0! To determine the periods of the other states it is useful to know. The short answer is that if the two states have different periods, then by going from x to y, from y to y in the various possible ways, and then from y to x, we will get a contradiction.
Suppose that the period of x is c, while the period of y is d 0 and let m be such that pm. Since pkCm. Since x has period c, k C m must be a multiple of c. Combining it with Lemma 1. Since this chain is irreducible it follows from Lemma 1. Consider now the basketball chain Example 1.
We now come to the main results of the chapter. We first list the assumptions. All of these results hold when S is finite or infinite. Suppose I, A, S. Then as n! Suppose I and R. If Nn. As a corollary we get the following. In the next two examples we will be interested in the long run cost associated with a Markov chain.
For this, we will need the following extension of Theorem 1. P Theorem 1. Suppose I, S, and x jf. Taking f. If we then take expected value we have Theorem 1. Suppose I, S. To illustrate the use of these results, we consider Example 1. We have an electronics store that sells a videogame system, with the potential for sales of 0, 1, 2, or 3 of these units each day with probabilities. Each night at the close of business new units can be ordered which will be available when the store opens in the morning.
As explained earlier if Xn is the number of units on hand at the end of the day then we have the following transition matrix: 0 1 2 3 4 5 0 1 0 0 0 0 :3 :4 :1 :2 0 :1 0 0 2 3 :1 :2 :1 :2 :3 0 :4 :3 :2 :4 :1 :2 4 5 :4 :3 :4 :3 0 0 0 0 :3 0 :4 :3 In the first section we asked the question: Q. The key is to look at the times the chain returns to a fixed state. Suppose p is irreducible and recurrent.
Let Nn. Suppose first that we start at y. The times between returns, t1 ; t2 ; : : : are independent and identically distributed so the strong law of large numbers for nonnegative random variables implies that the time of the kth return to y, R. From Theorem 1. Our next topic is the existence of stationary measures Theorem 1. Now suppose that z D x: Reasoning as above we have X pN n. To check x.
Let K D minfk W pk. Sketch of Proof. Suppose that the chain starts at x. By the cycle trick in the proof of Theorem 1. P n Proof. Using Lemma 1. The next ingredient is Lemma 1. If x has period 1, i. In words, Ix contains all of the integers after some value n0.
To prove this we begin by proving Lemma 1. Ix is closed under addition. Using this we see that in the triangle and square example I0 D f3; 4; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 11; : : :g Note that in this example once we have three consecutive numbers e. For another unusual example consider the renewal chain Example 1.
Once we have five consecutive numbers in I0 , here 39—43, we have all the rest. The last two examples motivate the following. We begin by observing that it is enough to show that Ix will contain two consecutive integers: k and k C 1. In the last example 24; 25 2 I0 implies 48; 49; 50 2 I0 which implies 72; 73; 74; 75 2 I0 and 96; 97; 98; 99; 2 I0 , so we know the result holds for n0 D In fact it actually holds for n0 D 34 but it is not important to get a precise bound.
Let S be the state space for p. Step 1. We will first show that if p is aperiodic and irreducible then pN is irreducible. Since p is irreducible, there are K; L, so that pK. Since x2 and y2 have period 1, it follows from Lemma 1. Let V. Since pN is irreducible and recurrent, V. By considering the time and place of the first intersection and then using the Markov property we have P.
What fraction of new students eventually graduate? By considering what happens on one step h. Suppose that the server win the point with probability and successive points are independent. What is the probability the server will win the game if the score is tied 3—3? Behind by one point? We formulate the game as a Markov chain in which the state is the difference of the scores. The transition probability is 2 1 0 -1 -2 2 1. This gives us three equations in three unknowns h.
To introduce a general approach, we rearrange the equations to get h. Solving gives 0 1 0 1 0 1 h. If the game is tied then after two points, the server will have won with probability w2 , lost with probability. Having worked two examples, it is time to show that we have computed the right answer. In some cases we will want to guess and verify the answer. In those situations it is nice to know that the solution is unique. The next result proves this. Consider a Markov chain with state space S.
Suppose h. It follows from Lemma 1. Since h. The reasoning in the last example can be used to study Example 1. The state space is S D f0; 1; : : : Ng and the transition probability is! From this it follows that if we define h. Since Px. Our next topic is non-fair games. Let h. To calculate h. Summing and using the fact that h. What is the probability we will succeed?
Suppose that the casino starts with the rather modest capital of x D In this case the failure probability is incredibly small:. V0 60 1 Markov Chains Example 1. If we rearrange the matrix for the seven state chain in Example 1. Let g. By considering what happens on one step g. To solve for g, we note that the second equation implies g. The transition probability was 2 1 0 -1 -2 2 1. There is another way to see this.
Let THT be the random number of times we need to flip a coin before we have gotten a Heads followed by a Tails. On the average how many times do we need to roll one die in order to see a run of six rolls with all different numbers? To formulate the problem we need some notation. Kn is a Markov chain with state space f1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6g.

We want to show that g. To see what this says note that if p 1 so N! The second term represents the contribution to the expected value from paths that end at 0, but it is hard to explain why the term has exactly this form. The major new complication is that recurrence is not enough to guarantee the existence of a stationary distribution.
Imagine a particle that moves on f0; 1; 2; : : :g according to the following rules. It takes a step to the right with probability p. In symbols, p. The reflecting random walk is clearly irreducible. To check that it is aperiodic note that p. Using the convergence theorem, Theorem 1. T0 0 Px. This is what we think in general when we hear the term.
To see the reason we might be interested in positive recurrence recall that by Theorem 1. This observation motivates Theorem 1. For an irreducible chain the following are equivalent: i Some state is positive recurrent. The stationary measure constructed in Theorem 1.
It is trivial that iii implies i. In a branching process 0 is an absorbing state, so by Theorem 1. However, as the story unfolds we will see that branching processes have the same trichotomy as random walks do.

If D 1 and we exclude the trivial case p1 D 1, then extinction occurs with probability 1. We mention the result P here because it allows us to see that the expected time for the process to die out n P1. If we modify the branching process, so that p. Recurrence and Transience The first thing we need to determine about a Markov chain is which states are recurrent and which are transient.
The keys to the proof of Theorem 1. To prove these results, it was useful to know that if N. Theorems 1. Stationary Distributions A stationary measure is a nonnegative solution of p D. The first question is: do these things exist? In two situations, the stationary distribution is easy to compute. If the period is 1, x is said to be aperiodic. A simple sufficient condition to be aperiodic is that p.
In particular all of the states in an irreducible set have the same period. The three main results about the asymptotic behavior of Markov chains are Theorem 1. Consider a Markov chain with finite state space S. Since g. When we multiply by 1 we sum over all y 2 C, so the result is the expected exit time. Is Xn a Markov chain?

So the variance var. Let T D exponential. In order for the minimum of S and T to be larger than t, each of S and T must be larger than t. Using this and independence we have P. Example 2. Anne and Betty enter a beauty parlor simultaneously, Anne to get a manicure and Betty to get a haircut.
Suppose the time for a manicure haircut is exponentially distributed with mean 20 30 minutes. When this happens the lack of memory property of the exponential implies that it will take an average of 30 minutes for Betty to complete her haircut. Combining we see that the total waiting time is 12 C. Theorem 2. Let V D min. Arguing as in the case of two random variables: P.
Ti D min. Let fi;V. A submarine has three navigational devices but can remain at sea if at least two are working. Suppose that the failure times are exponential with means 1 year, 1. Find the probabilities for the six orders in which the failures can occur. That is, the density function of Tn is given by fTn.
The proof is by induction on n. Recalling that the 0th power of any positive number is 1, and by convention we set 0! To do the induction step, suppose that the formula is true for n. Using var. If Xi are independent Poisson. It suffices to prove the result for k D 2, for then the general result follows by induction. The term outside the sum is the desired Poisson probability, so have proved the desired result.
To do this think about people arriving to use an ATM, and let N. If n is large, the binomial. Exchanging the numerators of the first two fractions and breaking the last term into two, 2. Combining i — iv , we see that 2. The last proof can be easily generalized to show that if we divide the hour between and into any number of intervals, then the arrivals are independent Poissons with the right means. However, the argument gets very messy to write down.
The key to proving iii is the following Markov property: t u 2 Poisson Processes Lemma 2. Suppose for concreteness and so that we can reuse the last picture that by time s there have been four arrivals T1 ; T2 ; T3 ; T4 that occurred at times t1 ; t2 ; t3 ; t4.
Lemma 2. The desired result now follows by induction. Then for any set A jP. If X and Y are integer valued random variables, then for any set A jP. With a little work one can show k. To bound the bound it is useful to note that! This is similar to the usual heuristic for the normal distribution: the sum is due to small contributions from a large number of variables. However, here small means that it is nonzero with small probability. When a contribution is made it is equal to 1. The last results handle problem i.
To address the problem of varying arrival rates mentioned in ii , we generalize the definition. Nonhomogeneous Poisson Processes We say that fN. To demonstrate the first claim, we note that P. Differentiating gives the density Rt d P.
We will see a concrete example of a nonhomogeneous Poisson process in Example 2. By independent we mean that the Yi are independent of each other and of the Poisson process of arrivals. To explain why we have chosen these assumptions, we begin with two examples for motivation.
Let Yi be the number of people in the ith vehicle. There might be some correlation between the number of people in the car and the arrival time, e. Messages arrive at a computer to be transmitted across the Internet. If we imagine a large number of users writing emails on their laptops or tablets or smart phones , then the arrival times of messages can be modeled by a Poisson process. If we let Yi be the size of the ith message, then again it is reasonable to assume Y1 ; Y2 ; : : : are i.
In Example 2. In either case it is interesting to know the mean and variance of S. It follows from i in Theorem 2. In this section we will use the Yi to split the Poisson process into several. Let Nj. The somewhat remarkable fact is Theorem 2. To drive the point home consider a Poisson process with rate 10 per hour, and then flip coins to determine whether the arriving customers are male or female.
One might think that seeing 40 men arrive in one hour would be indicative of a large volume of business and hence a larger than normal number of women, but Theorem 2. To begin we suppose that P. It should be clear that the independent increments property of the Poisson process implies that the pairs of increments.
Since N1. For the general case, we use the multinomial to conclude that if pj D P. Ellen catches fish at times of a Poisson process with rate 2 per hour. What is the probability she will catch exactly 1 salmon and 2 trout if she fishes for 2. The total number of fish she catches in 2. Two copy editors read a page manuscript. The first found typos, the second found , and their lists contain 80 errors in common.
Let X0 be the number of typos that neither found. Let X1 and X2 be the number of typos found only by 1 or only by 2, and let X3 be the number of typos found by both. This example illustrates Poissonization—the fact that some combinatorial probability problems become much easier when the number of objects is not fixed but has a Poisson distribution. What is the probability that for all of the days there is at least one person in the crowd who has that birthday. Pretend February 29th does not exist.
For an application of this consider Example 2. As one walks around the Duke campus it seems that every student is talking on their smartphone. The argument for arrivals at the ATM implies that the beginnings of calls follow a Poisson process. As for the calls themselves, while many people on the telephone show a lack of memory, there is no reason to suppose that the duration of a call has an exponential distribution, so we use a general distribution function G with G.
Suppose that the 2. The probability a call started at s has ended by time t is G. That is, the mean number in the system is the rate at which calls enter times their average duration. In the argument above we supposed that the system starts empty.
Since the number of initial calls still in the system at time t decreases to 0 as t! Customers arrive at a sporting goods store at rate 10 per hour. Women for an amount of time that is uniformly distributed. What is the probability in equilibrium that there are four men and two women in the store?
By Poisson thinning the arrivals of men and women are independent Poisson process with rate 6 and 4. Thus P. People arrive at a puzzle exhibit according to a Poisson process with rate 2 per minute. The exhibit has enough copies of the puzzle so everyone at the exhibit can have one to play with.
Suppose the puzzle takes an amount of time to solve that is uniform on. Going in the other direction and adding up a lot of independent processes is called superposition. Since a Poisson process can be split into independent Poisson processes, it should not be too surprising that when the independent Poisson processes are put together, the sum is Poisson with a rate equal to the sum of the rates. Suppose N1.
It is clear that the sum has independent increments and N1. The fact that the increments have the right Poisson distribution follows from Theorem 2. For the moment we will illustrate their use in computing the outcome of races between Poisson processes. The first step is to note that the event in question is equivalent to having at least 6 red arrivals in the first 9.
If this happens, then we have at most 3 green arrivals before the 6th red one. On the other hand, if there are 5 or fewer red arrivals in the first 9, then we have had at least 4 red arrivals and at most 5 green. The number of arrivals by time s is the same as the number of Ui P.
For a concrete example, suppose N. Trucks and cars on highway US are Poisson processes with rate 40 and per hour, respectively. Trucks and cars are independent Poissons with rate 5 and 10 so the answer is. The density function is fT. The mean and variance of X are. Let Tn D t1 C : : : C tn be the time of the nth arrival.
Let N. Suppose that the time to repair a machine is exponentially distributed random variable with mean 2. The lifetime of a radio is exponentially distributed with mean 5 years. If Ted buys a 7-year-old radio, what is the probability it will be working 3 years later? A doctor has appointments at 9 and The amount of time each appointment lasts is exponential with mean What is the expected amount of time after until the second patient has completed his appointment?
Three people are fishing and each catches fish at rate 2 per hour. How long do we have to wait until everyone has caught at least one fish? Ilan and Justin are competing in a math competition. They work independently and each has the same two problems to solve. The two problems take an exponentially distributed amount of time with mean 20 and 30 minutes respectively or rates 3 and 2 if written in terms of hours. In a hardware store you must first go to server 1 to get your goods and then go to a server 2 to pay for them.
Suppose that the times for the two activities are exponentially distributed with means six and three minutes. Compute the average amount of time it takes Bob to get his goods and pay if when he comes in there is one customer named Al with server 1 and no one at server 2. Consider a bank with two tellers. Three people, Anne, Betty, and Carol enter the bank at almost the same time and in that order. Anne and Betty go directly into service while Carol waits for the first available teller.
Suppose that the service times for two servers are exponentially distributed with mean three and six minutes or they have rates of 20 and 10 per hour. A flashlight needs two batteries to be operational. You start with four batteries numbered 1—4. Whenever a battery fails it is replaced by the lowest-numbered working battery. Suppose that battery life is exponential with mean hours. Let T be the time at which there is one working battery left and N be the number of the one battery that is still good.
