According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of 2008, there were 22,600 jobs classified as statistician in the United States.^{[1]} Of these people, approximately 30 percent worked for governments (federal, state, or local). Additionally, there are substantial numbers of persons who use statistics in their work but have job titles other than statistician.^{[2]} The job of statistician is considered a profession. Most statisticians work in offices and have regular working hours and can therefore be considered white-collar workers. A minority of statisticians are self-employed statistical consultants.^{[citation needed]}
Most employment as a statistician requires a minimum of a masters degree in statistics or a related field. Many professional statisticians have a PhD.
Typical work includes collaborating with scientists, providing mathematical modeling, designing randomized experiements and randomized sampling plans, analyzing experimental or survey results, and forecasting future events (such as sales of a product).

Lettris
Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
boggle
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
