Professor, I know that AP Statistics is not your subject, but I just wonder if you are able to watch the two videos which called "Practice Test 2013 AP Statistics" and "Practice Test 2014 AP Statistics" in the AP Statistics content? Both videos showing network error, I dont know why. I already tried in different computers already.

What I think living beings differs from the "dead" or "unliving", is the autonomous ability to control and have own thoughts, actions and happenings.

So if someone doesn't have some of these characteristics it's considered dead? So if someone is unable to reproduce because of some reasons... he is a dead person?
