You can just use Find and Replace to find for example http, and replace it with same http. This is not only the simplest and most direct solution

How to make a Histogram in Google Sheets, with Exam Scores Example
# How to make a Histogram in Google Sheets and overlay a Normal Distribution Curve

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to make a histogram in Google Sheets with a normal distribution curve overlaid, as shown in the above image, using Google Sheets.

It’s a really useful visual technique for determining if your data is normally distributed, skewed or just all over the place.

## What is a Histogram?

A histogram is a graphical representation of the distribution of a dataset.

In this example, I have 1,000 exam scores between 0 and 100, and I want to see what the distribution of those scores are. What’s the average score? Did more students score high or low? How clustered around the average are the student scores? Are the scores normally distributed or skewed?

## What is a Normal Distribution Curve?

The normal distribution curve is a graphical representation of the normal distribution theorem stating that “…the averages of random variables independently drawn from independent distributions converge in distribution to the normal, that is, become normally distributed when the number of random variables is sufficiently large”.

Bit of a mouthful,

How to Make a Tree of your Google Drive Files and Folders

Written by Amit Agarwal on Nov 25, 2014

If you have ever worked with DOS or Linux before, you’ll be familiar with the “tree” command that recursively lists all the files and folders in the current directory in a tree like format. Most of us prefer visual navigation through Windows Explorer or Mac Finder but a unique advantage with the tree command is that you can save and print the directory structure.

I have written a little Google Script that is much like running “tree” but against your Google Drive. It creates a hierarchical tree diagram of all the files and folders in your Google Drive that you can save for offline reference or even print.

To get started, [click here](https://script.google.com/macros/s/AKfycbwsW5HhjJeDMp0yhnBOFQhLPgbB-VZwBPGls6KrmEhT-NngdsKd/exec) and authorize the script to access the files in your Google Drive. Once the authorization is complete, it may take a minute to generate the entire Google Drive tree. You’ll then get a link to download an HTML file that mirrors your Drive structure. You can directly send the file to the printer as well.

Newsrooms, let’s talk about G Suite
In our ideal world, Google would provide end-to-end encrypted G Suite services, allowing media and civil society organizations to collaborate on their work in a secure and private environment whenever possible. Until we have a way to do that, journalists should understand the risks alongside the benefits of using G Suite, and how to be mindful when using it. For now we should consider when to keep our most sensitive data off of G Suite in favor of an end-to-end encrypted alternative, local storage, or off of a computer altogether.
