You need to specify what Rare Events Logistic Regression is. What
command fits this?

“A good teacher can never be fixed in a routine. Each moment requires
a sensitive mind that is constantly changing and constantly adapting.
A teacher must never impose this student to fit his favorite pattern.
A good teacher protects his pupils from his own influence. A teacher
is never a giver of truth; he is a guide, a pointer to the truth that
each student must find for himself. I am not teaching you anything. I
just help you explore yourself.” –Bruce Lee
