Now, it's true that even for weight loss "calories in, calories out" is only an approximation, but based on the admittedly small amount of information I have it is basically the most practically useful one, and using more complex models is counterproductive. Ultimately for most people trying to lose weight the most limiting factor is psychology. If you have some really nice theory about how different nutrients (or even exercise) affect weight differently, chances are you will be tempted to slack off on the by far much more important "calories in, calories out" equation, because you have a limited amount of mental energy. All the physiological tricks mean jack shit if you're inputting too much energy into yourself. Now of course what you eat still matters a lot, but mainly because it affects your psychology differently -- for instance, I've heard many anecdotal reports that 1200 calories from carbs leaves people feeling much less satisfied than the same amount from fat and protein, which of course is going to make it harder for a person not to eat any more. In other words, a corollary to "calories in, calories out" is "find whichever source of calories makes it easiest for you to maintain the equation", but even then physiology matters only in the way that it affects psychology, and not directly because some sources of calories are metabolized differently than others.
The purpose of the ISS was to spread the cost of a space station among many different countries, so that no one of them had to foot the bill for their own. One of the reasons the USSR went bankrupt is because they could not keep up with US cold war expenditures, including the space race.
Which makes it truly bizarre that Russia would be thinking of going into space alone again. Putin doesn't appear to remember any history at all.
Personally I'd be happy to hack my car's windows in the opposite direction. On the driver side only, if you tap "up", it rolls up all the way--you have to hold it down for it to not do that. Which means if you want to adjust it a quarter of an inch, you have to go down and then up, or up too far and then back down.
Signing up for this basically asap.
But if the price is the same no matter how many different sites you consume, or how much of their bandwidth you chew up, well...I'm not sure how I think about that, from an "I want my favorite websites to actually get money" point of view.
If you had a program that could generate a scale invariant hash of an image, and given a command line tool that could tell you the resolution of an image (which exist, just don't know the names), I'm pretty sure you could do that in a single line in bash.
Wouldn't be surprised if there was a program that generated an image hash. Even better if it generates a value where stronger features are higher bits and smaller features (that could be lost in scaling) are lower bits, so you could truncate and compare? That might be too fiddly.
I registered mIRC and WinZip a few years back...after 15+ years. I guess shareware really can pay off eventually.
Interesting. One can only hope the teachers will take it well if they decline.
Oh, no arguments there.
Sure, that's a fine solution, just don't claim that providing the benefits of the service while eliminating the data-sharing is trivial.
