re: UC makes landmark decision to drop ACT and SAT requirement for admission - bigblake
[quote]I never understood discriminating against entire schools. If an applicant proves their competence during an interview, why does it matter where they graduated from? [/quote] Assuming you get an interview. Not really discriminating against an entire school. When you look at 20 resumes for a...

re: Flipping houses as sole income? - bigblake
I imagine flippers are starting to get destroyed in this market. Especially those that bought to do a tear down and are selling new construction. I think you’ll see significant softness in luxury homes. Starter homes likely won’t be hit too hard because people need to live somewhere....

re: Arbery made multiple visits, at night, to the house under construction (UPDATED) - bigblake
That's the statement the duo made to police. I take it with some grain of salt and would want it corroborated. In any case that doesn't exonerate them. ...

re: Arbery - what do we actually know about the surveillance videos? - bigblake
Look, they should be in jail, but "murder" will be really tough to prove. I don't see any way that it is 1st degree (premeditated). 2nd degree murder is somewhat closer. The wiki summary for 2nd degree is: "Any intentional murder with malice aforethought, but is not premeditated or planned in...

re: Arbery - what do we actually know about the surveillance videos? - bigblake
He was trespassing, probably looking to take some loose equipment. The father/son saw him doing it previously and were looking to confront him. They decided to roll up with guns drawn and shot him. They'll be convicted of manslaughter, or acquitted if the charge is murder. Citizens' arrest is d...

Pool Pump for Solar Heating, what's the right size - bigblake
Was looking for a pump and the store had an open box / clearance that was considerably cheaper than anything else ($35). It's a pump for cheapish above ground swimming pools. It's 1500 gal/hr and has 2" intake/discharge fittings. My in-ground pool has a large fixed pump, but I need a separate o...

re: Thoughts on Sonos Beam ? - bigblake
Anything Sonos is great. I recommend getting two play 1’s (in any generation: 1, One, SL) and making it a 5.0 setup. You can play everything on Sonos. I stream audiobooks through it, Apple Music, Pandora, YouTube videos (AirPlay)....

re: Breaking: 1996 court documents indicate tara reade told ex husband of biden incident - bigblake
I still hesitate to believe this, but for what it’s worth, sexual harassment and assault in 1995 does not equal sexual harassment and assault in 2020. Sexual harassment in 2020 is asking someone on a date, whereas it’s likely significant physical touching in 1995....

[quote]What approach do you think would be better? Seems like as good as any to me. Or am I conflating neural networks with machine learning? [/quote] Neural networks is one type of machine learning. It gets a lot of news because it is used in a lot of high profile use-cases like automated dri...

re: I’m a novice programmer and want to attempt making a neural network as a fun project - bigblake
Making a neural network is pretty easy, YouTube videos will show you exactly the code that does it. The real challenge is understanding what is making it predict better/worse and how to manipulate it (or the data) to improve it. Neural network is likely not the best model for predicting who wi...

re: Anyone here done those coding bootcamps ? - bigblake
It’s still a grind to land your first job out of the camp. It’s a big time and finance investment. If you enjoy coding then I advise it, but if you’re looking solely for the payday then it’s probably not for you....
