STAT-HAWKERS had 8 Booth at the Joint Statistical Meeting which was held during July 28–August 2, 2018 at Vancouver Convention Centre, Canada. It was a great pleasure and chance that Dr. Sukhminder Singh who was MS Advisor of Sarjinder Singh during 1985–1987 was present at the conference as can be found in Fig. 1.
From Fig. 1, it can be seen that there are three main posters in front of the booth where the first one is for “Tea with T.R.U.M.P.”, second one is for “Tutti- Frutti with T.R.U.M.P”, and the third one is “Children Must Be Present to get a Toy”. There was a monograph and a special chair for the readers to sit on it and give feedback on the monograph, “Tuned Ratio Unbiased Mean Predictor” which is abbreviated as T.R.U.M.P. It was a natural type attraction to the attendees to visit the booth and have a cup of tea. Figure 2 shows the types of tea was available at the booth for any visitor.
At the back fence of the booth there was a poster displaying the cover page of the monograph, “A new concept for tuning design weights in survey sampling: Jackknifing in Theory and Practice” authored by Singh, S., Sedory, S.A., Rueda, M. Arcos, A., and Arnab, R. in 2016 with Elsevier. The monograph, Advanced Sampling Theory With Applications: How Michael Selected Amy”, authored by Singh, S. (2003) with the Kluwer Academic Publishers, The Netherlands. Also the textbook, “Thinking Statistically: Elephants Go to School”, (2006) Kendall/Hunt Publishing Company was also displayed. Most important there were 500 sticky pads for advertising the journal, “Model Assisted Statistics and Applications: An International Journal. IOS Press, The Netherlands”.
Many booth visitors had shown interest in the monograph, “Tuned Ratio Unbiased Mean Predictor (T.R.U.M.P)” buy only one picture in Fig. 3 is displayed.
You might have noted that we do not had many toys for children at Vancouver, JSM 2018 because we could not find those inflatable toys such as Elephants, Monkeys etc. at Vancouver in any market. Thus only beach balls and fish were available for children.
