Canadian stock photography

  • However, when you're building your website, stock photography is sometimes a necessity.
  • While having original, custom images is always best (and a .CA domain to go with them), we understand that sometimes you just need a picture of someone staring at an iPad (or a moose skateboarding).
  • Our Canadian Stock Photo library is full of original, maple syrup-infused photography that is free to use and share!
  • All we ask is that you credit CIRA/.CA domains whenever you use our photos and you are free to build as many websites, memes, and annual reports as you like.
  • We are providing small, medium, large and extra-large sizes for all your stock photography needs.
  • CIRA offers an online Message Delivery Form that allows you to send a message to the Administrative Contact for this domain name.

SMB LENDING REPORT: How alt lenders are providing SMBs with new funding options, and the ways incumbents can respond to stay ahead

  • The income and assets of these businesses make them an irreplaceable customer base for financial institutions.
  • However, incumbent financial institutions are falling short of SMBs' lending wants and needs.
  • Fintechs — including alt lenders, payment providers, and lending platforms — are changing the SMB lending space by filling that gap and capturing an increasingly large sliver of the SMB lending market.
  • For example, alternative financial providers only accounted for 2%, or £11.5 billion ($14.7 billion), of the UK SMB lending market in 2018.
  • However, their share is projected to surge to 9.1%, worth £52.6 billion ($67.4 billion), by 2021.
  • In the SMB Lending Report, Business Insider Intelligence will examine the key players in the SMB lending space, determine the advantages of each player, and discuss how incumbents can improve their offerings to better serve SMBs and stave off the growing competition from alt lenders in the space.

North Korea says it conducted another 'crucial test' at missile site

  • Earlier this month, North Korea warned it would send the US a "Christmas gift," the contents of which would depend on the outcome of ongoing talks between Washington and Pyongyang.
  • Meanwhile, a satellite image obtained by CNN earlier this month indicates North Korea may be preparing to resume testing engines used to power satellite launchers and intercontinental ballistic missiles.
  • The commercial satellite imagery, which was captured by Planet Labs, showed new activity at Sohae Satellite Launching Station and the presence of a large shipping container at the facility's engine test stand, according Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute, which works in partnership with the imaging company.
  • While engine tests are considered to be less provocative than those involving missiles or satellites, Lewis said that the activity at Sohae is a significant development and a step toward weapons launches of a more threatening nature.

Quantum Simulations That Are Ten Thousand Times Faster

  • Researchers at the University of Warwick and University of Oxford have developed a new way to simulate quantum systems of many particles, that allows for the investigation of the dynamic properties of quantum systems fully coupled to slowly moving ions.
  • The new methods demonstrated an increase of speed by more than a factor of 10,000 (four orders of magnitude) yet is still consistent with previous calculations for static properties of quantum systems.
  • Many-body quantum systems are the core of many scientific problem ranging from the complex biochemistry in our bodies to the behaviour of matter inside of large planets or even technological challenges like high-temperature superconductivity or fusion energy which demonstrates the possible range of applications of the new approach.
  • On the basis of the Bohmian trajectory formalism, our new method treats the full particle dynamics with a considerable increase in computational speed.

Gaming on Reddit, Revisited

  • One is that I haven’t given enough new information — maybe 2400 posts just isn’t enough to effectively train a model on this problem — but this feels like a cop-out since you can almost always say that you “need more data”, and I’ve seen fairly consistent performance between both iterations.
  • Another is that I didn’t do enough feature engineering — maybe I need to dig deeper and add data about how many comments there are, or another aspect of these posts hidden in the original JSON files that were pulled.
  • As always, thanks for taking this ride on the data science train, and let me know your thoughts on the project — is the SVC really the best model?

Forget toiletries and bathrobes — surprising items like mattresses are being stolen from luxury hotel rooms too

  • Wellness Heaven, a Germany-based luxury hotel guide, surveyed 1,157 luxury hoteliers from four- and five-star hotels primarily located in Europe to establish what items hotel guests are taking home with them beyond mini shampoo bottles.
  • Some items are expected — nearly three-quarters of hotelier respondents said towels and bathrobes are most frequently taken from hotel rooms.
  • According to the survey, 49 hotels reported having mattresses stolen.
  • "In a lot of cases, they don't report it to the police, because they don't want to be connected to crime," Keilmann said, even though it is relatively simple to determine which guest walked away with a mattress.
  • One hotelier in Austria, for example, reported the theft of pine wood sauna benches; another in the Maldives said their hotel is constantly ordering new floral arrangements to keep up with the disappearance rate.
