How to spot a false teacher

  • If you are self-taught, you probably picked whatevever material was popular at the time, and since you were new to this, you wouldn't have had a way to figure out if the information you were getting was any good.
  • Most of the instructors weren't actually good at snowboarding.
  • They hit the biggest jumps in the terrain park, go highest out of the halfpipe, do crazy things on long rails, the kind of stuff that just blows your mind the first time you see it because it is so far outside of your normal day to day experience.
  • Pros don't waste the good part of a day warming up on small jumps.
  • In terms of actual form, the people hitting the big jumps weren't that much better than the people hitting the small ones (okay that's a slight exaggeration).

I'm a New Yorker who just spent a day alone at the State Fair of Texas. Here's what I saw walking around birthing barns and butter sculptures.

  • By far the most compelling reason I had to visit the State Fair was butter sculpting, which I envisioned as a sort of performance art.
  • These pregnant beings — including a cow who was evidently due to deliver the following day — had been dragged out of their home, strapped onto the back of a truck, and hauled off to a state fair, so some (hypothetical) imbecile from the East Coast could wave at them while snapping photos?
  • It's unclear to me why I returned to the stadium for a dog stunt show after the situation that had unfolded at pig races.
  • As the dogs leapt over bars stationed 52 inches above ground and through a series of rings, then balanced on their hind legs while standing on their trainers' heads, the trainers shared with the audience some fun facts about the animals.

About International Repair Day - Open Repair Alliance

  • International Repair Day is a joint initiative of the Open Repair Alliance, celebrated every year on the third Saturday of October.
  • This day highlights the value of repair and promotes global community efforts to fix the stuff we own.
  • During the first two editions of Repair Day, we witnessed great interest and sharing through social media, where people posted their repair events and stories, and we heard from fixers and community repair events across the world, from the UK to Spain, Iran, Argentina or the US.
  • International Repair Day also presents an opportunity to further promote community repair events globally: motivating active groups, encouraging new ones to emerge, and inspiring citizens to share their skills as volunteers.
  • Beyond repairing in the community, this day can help independent repair shops promote their work, and also inspire companies to show support for repair, sharing information, tools or spare parts.

Predict soccer matches with 50% accuracy

  • Therefore, it is not surprising that a lot of people try to predict results of sport events.
  • For the basic statistical concept, please have a look here and here.In the next parts I will use parts of a code which were published by David Sheehan in his fantastic blog.
  • We predict the last 10 match days for each league.
  • But overall the line is most of the time around 5 which means half of the matches of a specific match day were predicted right.
  • In sum, we have predicted 48,2% of the match day correctly.
  • We saw that we can nearly predict 50% of the matches correctly with the use of an easy Poisson regression.
  • If you want to go further with this model, you could check for the form of the teams, time-weighting or correctness of under- or overestimated results.
