A large number of data sets (5000) with 10 taxa each were simulated under a rate-drift model for trees with 2 topologies (balanced or unbalanced) and with different sets of divergence times (characterized by long or short external branches).
Data were analyzed using Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo methods in which the prior on divergence times was specified from a birth–death process with species sampling (BDS) or a Dirichlet distribution using the programs MCMCTREE and MULTIDIVTIME.
You've worked to find out whether Draymond Green or someone else sits atop the power forwards rankings, and you've seen which of the many up-and-coming centers fills in the premier spot for that positional hierarchy. We'll still be here with the final part of the series when you're done. By analyzing all aspects of the on-court work these players produced in 2016-17, we're here to put the top 100 overall players in order.
Now, it's time to mix everyone together, with only a few necessary caveats. The goal is to identify those we'd most want to build around based on results from the current campaign, so long-term upside and prowess in the distant past are irrelevant.
You've counted down toward the best shooting guard of the bunch, moving past plenty of high-scoring 2s along the way.
You've realized it's awfully difficult to displace Le Bron James from the top of the small forward rankings, even if plenty of young wings are gunning for his title.
The programs generally performed well on shallow phylogenies, but posterior mean node ages were biased and 95% posterior intervals included true ages in fewer than 95% of trees in some analyses.
Centuries are numbered ordinally in English and many other languages.
All the planes in the series have the "HAND-Y" grip feature, like that on the block planes, milled into their sides to allow for a more comfortable grip. Each plane's sole is of a two-section construction - one section forms the toe of the sole, and the other forms the heel of the sole.
Bayesian methods are increasingly being used to estimate divergence times without the restrictive assumption of a global clock.
This is the first in a series of so-called cabinetmaker's rabbet planes, and is the rightmost one in the image (the larger planes are pictured to show the details of the text).
They were advertised as being "designed for fine Cabinet Work where extreme accuracy is required." The distinguishing feature of this plane that sets it apart from the others, other than its overall length, is its very short toe section.
