As with the logic behind not releasing video documentation of US abuse of "enemy combatants," we must hide the truth because it will make people hate us. The worse the act, the more closely it must be guarded.
Anyone else would have less reason to lie about the severity and hide the evidence.
troll? really? hm.
"ipython --pylab" ftw! and i'm a math grad student.
I second the shout out to NumPy. I use pylab.
Heh. "Prokaryotic" and "eukaryotic" are not monophyletic categories, and need to be dropped. See the research of Norm Pace, for example.
Heh. But I gotta say (to do the "other way around" thing that sznupi did), what I meant is that the model "evolution" is not contradicted by this data point. You have noted that many other (not observed) data points would also not contradict. But there are many things that the model would not "explain"...anything that contradicted it, in fact (like a species not responding to selective pressure over many generations). I'm just noting that this is another point that fits right on the line. That's all.
Right. Agreed. Which is why I called is a sine qua non. In agreement with sznupi, too. Forgive my biologists shorthand.
This makes perfect evolutionary sense for an emergent, highly social species. Without such a mechanism, it is possible that cities could never have occurred.
AI tutors are infinitely patient. Not only will it work problems for you, it will explain to you how it did it.
"We own this." "I am this."
So if Mozart et all turn out to be brilliant, intuitive mathematicians, where's the shame? I TA a math class at a university, and during a test a week or so ago, I was struck by the insanity of the power of the TI's EVERYONE had on their desks. (Yeah, they get to use TI's.) When the far out becomes a given, we go further.
Makes sense. Good point!
