Risk is a strategy board game produced by Parker Brothers (now a division of Hasbro). Winning Moves also makes a classic 1959 version. It was invented by French film director Albert Lamorisse and originally released in 1957 as La Conquête du Monde ("The Conquest of the World") in France. It was later bought by Parker Brothers and released in 1959 with some modifications to the rules as Risk: The Continental Game, then as Risk: The Game of Global Domination.
Risk is a turn-based game for two to six players. The standard version is played on a board depicting a political map of the Earth, divided into forty-two territories, which are grouped into six continents. The object of the game is to occupy every territory on the board and in doing so, eliminate the other players. Players control armies with which they attempt to capture territories from other players, with results determined by dice rolls.
Risk is the eighth studio album by American thrash metal band Megadeth, released on August 31, 1999 by Capitol Records. It is also the band's last album to be released by that label. The first Megadeth album since 1990 to feature a lineup change, Risk marks the studio debut of drummer Jimmy DeGrasso with the band, as well as the final appearance of long-time guitarist Marty Friedman, who announced his departure a year later.
Meant to be a breakthrough on alternative rock radio, Risk received a mixed response because of the great deviation from the band's traditional sound. The resulting backlash ultimately caused the band to return to a heavier, more typical style with their next album, The World Needs a Hero. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has blamed the record's lack of success on the fact that it was released under the "Megadeth" name: "if anybody else's name was on 'Risk', it would have sold".
Despite this, the album debuted at number 16 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified gold in 1999 by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipping a half million copies in the United States. As with the rest of Megadeth's studio records released by Capitol Records, the album was remixed and remastered in 2004, and included several bonus tracks. This reissue also featured a different cover.

Risk is the potential of gaining or losing something of value. Values (such as physical health, social status, emotional well-being or financial wealth) can be gained or lost when taking risk resulting from a given action or inaction, foreseen or unforeseen. Risk can also be defined as the intentional interaction with uncertainty. Uncertainty is a potential, unpredictable, and uncontrollable outcome; risk is a consequence of action taken in spite of uncertainty.
Risk perception is the subjective judgment people make about the severity and probability of a risk, and may vary person to person. Any human endeavor carries some risk, but some are much riskier than others.
RISK (born Kelly Graval), also known as RISKY, is a Los Angeles-based graffiti artist and fashion entrepreneur. In the 1980s, RISK gained notoriety for his unique style and pushed the limits of graffiti: He was one of the first writers in Southern California to paint freight trains, and he pioneered writing on "heavens", or freeway overpasses. At the peak of his career he took graffiti from the streets and into the gallery with the launch of the Third Rail series of art shows, and later parlayed the name into a line of graffiti-inspired clothing.
Statistical risk is a quantification of a situation's risk using statistical methods. These methods can be used to estimate a probability distribution for the outcome of a specific variable, or at least one or more key parameters of that distribution, and from that estimated distribution a risk function can be used to obtain a single non-negative number representing a particular conception of the risk of the situation.
Statistical risk is taken account of in a variety of contexts including finance and economics, and there are many risk functions that can be used depending on the context.
One measure of the statistical risk of a continuous variable, such as the return on an investment, is simply the estimated variance of the variable, or equivalently the square root of the variance, called the standard deviation. Another measure in finance, one which views upside risk as unimportant compared to downside risk, is the downside beta. In the context of a binomial variable, a simple statistical measure of risk is simply the probability that a variable will take on the lower of two values.
There is a sense in which one risk A can be said to be unambiguously greater than another risk B (that is, greater for any reasonable risk function): namely, if A is a mean-preserving spread of B. This means that the probability density function of A can be formed, roughly speaking, by "spreading out" that of B. However, this is only a partial ordering: most pairs of risks cannot be unambiguously ranked in this way because different risk functions applied to the estimated distributions of these two risky variables will give different answers as to which is riskier.
In the context of statistical estimation itself, the risk involved in estimating a particular parameter is a measure of the degree to which the estimate is likely to be inaccurate.
