An' I take care o' God."

Assets with high correlations tend to move in tandem, which make it harder for active managers to harvest the winners.
Differences don't necessarily correlate with skin color, but rather with geography and climate.
Bush renomination of Stickler , Correll an insult to coal families, UMWA says.
"As sunspot numbers increase, it seems to correlate to a warming of the global climate, and then as sunspot activity decreases there seems to be a general cooling," said Dr Mark Giampapa, the Deputy Director at the National Solar Observatory.
They videotaped the waves they surfed there also, so later they could correlate the video and the velocity data and check their speed at specific points on a wave.

In science:

We note that correlation of local statistics arises naturally from correlation of expression among genes. A simulation study based on a real microarray data set exhibits the extreme anti-conservative behavior of Class 1 tests in the presence of realistic levels of correlation in expression.
A statistical framework for testing functional categories in microarray data
Like both Pearson’s correlation coefficients and Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients, the quotient correlation coefficients and the rank based quotient correlation coefficients measure the level of agreement between two random variables.
Quotient correlation: A sample based alternative to Pearson's correlation
Another issue that needs careful treatment is the question of correlation among different measurements, e.g. due to using the same theory for calculating acceptances. A common practice is to set the correlation coefficient to unity to indicate full correlation.

This function evidences three parameters that characterize the (isotropic) stochastic field: the amplitude Φ = pE (0, 0), the correlation time τ c , which is the decay time of the Eulerian correlation and the correlation length λc , which is the characteristic decay distance.

To implement conditional preparation requires two correlated states, however this correlation need not be entanglement—classical correlations can be suffcient.

Later in this review, when we use this correlator to estimate the correlations between shapes, we take the ratio between the smallest and largest k to be 2/800, close to that in WMAP. A more precise correlator should be computed in the l-space in the same way that the estimator is constructed.
Primordial Non-Gaussianities from Inflation Models
Note that there obviously have to be entangled states, which do not violate any Bell inequality, since these represent an upper bound to correlations and do not distinguish between classical correlations (which result from mixing of pure product states) and quantum correlations.
Quantum Entanglement and Geometry
Although new effects from correlations are most pronounced in the regime of strong correlations Γ ≪ U , interesting quantum fluctuation effects already start to become visible in the regime of moderate correlations Γ ∼ U , where perturbative and mean-field theories are often not yet applicable.
Charge transport through single molecules, quantum dots, and quantum wires
To model the counts in correlated fields, we use a standard Cholesky decomposition technique to instill the distribution of galaxy overdensities with the correlation matrix Σ, and then Poisson-sample the correlated distribution to generate the counts in each field.

That is, it seems from these results that, in terms of average accuracy, it is more important to make effective use of low-order correlations from all available SNPs that are correlated with the target untyped SNP than to take account of unusual higher-order correlations that may occasionally exist.

We searched for the largest marginal probability P (a|x) numerically among all possible quantum correlations, i.e. correlations that can be achieved by measuring a quantum state, as well as among all no-signaling correlations, denoting this largest quantity by P ∗ (A|X ).
