The Confidante Miami Beach has many of the same amenities as the luxury hotels down the street in South Beach for far cheaper — here's why I'd gladly return to the Hyatt property

  • The hotel boasts all the amenities you'd want in a beach resort, with two pools, beach chairs, a spa and fitness facility, on-site dining, and well-designed outdoor areas and common spaces, with standard rooms starting at $195.
  • The hotel offers a wide range including the King Ocean Front with Lounge Deck at $290, which would be similar to mine but with a larger terrace and better view.
  • It includes Wi-Fi, two beach and pool chairs with a personalized attendant (I'm not sure I'd agree with the second part, more on that in a minute), unlimited beach and pool towels, access to the 24-hour indoor/outdoor gym with fitness classes, two-hour bike rentals, free morning coffee, happy hour and spa discounts, kids' games, and pool floaties.
  • I noticed frantic servers running back and forth between the hotel and the beach chairs to deliver food, and it took a long time to receive a Diet Coke.

Getting Started with Testing Javascript

  • Testing helps us to ensure that the software we write behaves the way it was intended to.
  • Unit Testing is the most basic type of testing that can be performed on a piece of code that verifies its correctness for a given set of values.
  • This process of building and writing tests before the actual implementation of the functionality is known as Test-Driven Development (TDD).
  • Looking at the Structure of a Unit Test, let us write some utility functions that can help us abstract the working of the test.
  • This shows that our conversion function works for just one of the cases and fails for the other two.
  • that provide advanced features like a detailed description of failing tests along with the exact line number and stack trace, that is more suitable for use in production environments.

This Will Make You a Command-Line Ninja

  • However, you may want to use this trick to create an executable Python script.
  • The usefulness of the command-line, and especially scripts, increases exponentially once you master loops.
  • With our new ninja scripting powers, we can now use find to return a bunch of files, feed them to our for loop and do some awesome stuff with them, right?
  • Which version you use depends on the command you’re executing on the results.
  • That’s because the command is executed on many files at once, saving your OS lots of CPU cycles that are needed to open, start, run, and exit a program.
  • Since JSON is super ubiquitous, I’d like to teach you some useful command-line JSON processing voodoo first.
  • Instead of waiting for ffmpeg to finish, xargs starts another instance of ffmpeg to process the second file in parallel.

How to use Docker to deploy a Dashboard app on AWS

  • Since many cloud platforms support the running of Docker images, we can readily deploy a Dashboard application in the cloud.
  • Consequently, any relative paths that we specify in our source code will almost certainly not work when the app is containerized as the container will have the current path as its root directory (as the default).
  • The second and third lines copy the requirements.txt file and the app folder from the application folder on the host PC to the tmp folder and app folder located in the root directory of the Docker container.
  • If we don’t specify an argument when running the docker image, Docker uses the default argument shown in the CMD line for execution, which makes Python run the dashboard app.
  • We name the container conjoint_dashboard and we populate the second field with the Image URI given at the end of Step 4.

Quantum Honeybees (1997)

  • In the darkness of the hive, bees manage to communicate the precise direction and distance of a newfound food source, and they do it all in the choreography of a dance.
  • On the honeycomb, which Von Frisch referred to as the dance floor, the bee performs a waggle dance, which in outline looks something like a coffee bean--two rounded arcs bisected by a central line.
  • To convey the direction of a food source, the bee varies the angle the waggling run makes with an imaginary line running straight up and down.
  • She found a group of objects in the flag manifold that, when projected onto a two-dimensional hexagon, formed curves that reminded her of the bee’s recruitment dance.
  • Delving more deeply into the flag manifold, Shipman dredged up a variable, which she called alpha, that allowed her to reproduce the entire bee dance in all its parts and variations.

A Visual Overview of Typography

  • Optical sizes designed for headlines or display tend to have delicate, lyrical forms, while styles created for text and captions are built with heavier strokes.
  • Designers create hierarchy and contrast by playing with the scale of letterforms.
  • Small capitals and non-lining numerals (once found only in serif fonts) are included in the sans-serif versions of Thesis, Scala Pro, and many other contemporary superfamilies.
  • TRILOGY, a superfamily designed by Jeremy Tankard in 2009, is inspired by three nineteenth-century type styles: sans serif, Egyptian, and fat face.
  • Rather than Mixing Small Caps with Capitals, many designers prefer to use all small caps, creating a clean line with no ascending elements.
  • When placing typefaces on separate lines, it often makes sense to create contrast in scale as well as style or weight.
  • Lining numerals are the same height as capital letters, so they sometimes look big and bulky when appearing in running text.

The Mechanical Transmission of Power (1): Stangenkunst

  • Networks of pivoted, wooden field rods conveyed power from water wheels in the valleys to mining machinery up the mountains over distances of up to 4 km, operating pumps and bellows, hoisting ores, and transporting miners up and down shafts.
  • The power generated by wind or water was transferred to the machinery over a very short distance via a set of wooden gears or cranks.
  • A crank was used (video) to convert the circular motion of the waterwheel to a reciprocating motion that moved the rods back and forth -- a mechanism that was already applied in Roman water-powered stone sawmills.
  • In fact, from the late seventeenth century onwards, many writers defined the Stangenkunst as the combination of field rods, shaft rods, and a power source (one or more waterwheels), instead of just referring to the reciprocating field rods.
