Damali Binta – Oct 13, 2016

Damali Binta, a writer for Raider Nation Times, will present a paper in Atlanta, Georgia. The topic will inspire a discussion of the way history is distorted by manipulation of data which reports unusual, gifted performances, but these discoveries are overlooked because of incomplete or faulty data analysis. Her conjecture is that the Oakland Raiders have been affected by the incidents of faulty or incomplete analysis.
