- They don't want to see gray skies every day
Outsourcing to India and Bangledesh is akin to sweeping the problem under a rug. Since global demand will generally increase as Africa ramps up its consumerism, we can only hope that some mix of technology and regulation curbs the pollution. But I'm not so hopeful. "Oh, boo hoo", right? Right.
No, srsly, thank you so much for the guidance, here.
We have entered a new era of cosmology.
And now that the method has proven to be indispensable, we should build LISA ASAP.
What really bothers me is that Trump and/or his strategists have undoubtedly concluded that a new enemy/war would have a net positive effect on his approval rating. And he needs that.
Granted, that's just a single study. But if I was a betting man, I'd wager that in a century the accumulated statistics will more or less confirm many of these climate change predictions involving more storms, of more intensity, in more places.
Let me be Xplicit; A google image search for "Xzibit machine learning" turned up (what I would classify as) underwhelming results. :(
edit: sorry, got drunkski last night
I use ImageMagick to do things like that, it's remarkably lightweight (nowhere near the disk space required for photochop), but still very powerful.
And not that you asked, but after I've built all my image frames from the data, I stitch them together into .mp4's with ffmpeg. Video data products are so obviously the future, but don't tell all the old men who still get printed journals delivered to physical mailboxes.
Correct! This is a rare violation of "Betteridge's law of headlines".
It's quite a bit of matter, but distributed over a huge amount of space. There's a lot of space in between galaxies, so the average density is nowhere near as high as a galaxy's, but it all adds up to be a large amount of the total mass in the universe. The Milky Way's diameter is 100,000 light years, and the distance to our nearest neighbor, Andromeda, is 2.5 million light years. I would suspect that the amount of matter in the tendrils connecting two galaxies is inversely proportional to the distance between them (but I don't care enough to actually read the paper, because my unfortunately finite intellectual capital is already stretched vanishingly thin at the moment).
I'm scraping a soundcloud feed every couple of days.
Man, if I had the time, I'd sample that Love Apple hook into a real nice bit of nu disco. It's very likely that you'd hate the result, but at least I wouldn't be working on graded homework assignments at age 30.
