Arkansas high schoolers are using VR to learn about concussions

  • CrashCourse is a new interactive education program that’s designed to educate high school students about the risks and effects of concussions.
  • This month the State of Arkansas announced that it’s teaming up with nonprofit public health group TeachAids to implement the platform in every high school within its jurisdiction.
  • It’s a condition that VR seems uniquely positioned to help tackle, and this program looks like it does so in some smart ways.
  • The VR component of CrashCourse consists of an interactive film that puts viewers on the field of a football game.
  • Following that, there’s another interactive experience named the Symptoms Simulator, which shows users what it’s like to actually have a concussion so that they can spot the signs in the future.
  • You’ll even be able to explore a 3D scan of a human brain to help you understand more about the condition.

AoC Day 9: Marble Mania

  • My first approach was just to brute force this, using a big array and inserting/removing as needed.
  • I'm guessing all of the array slicing/copies meant that this brute force algorithm was actually n2, so scaling up the input size by 100 meant scaling up the run time by 10,000!
  • It took me a second to realize the trick was to use a circular doubly-linked list.
  • It doesn't matter if this loops around one or more times past the starting point as it is a genuinely circular data structure.
  • When I started implementing the game I realised the players play in a round-robin fashion, and instead of keeping their scores in a Map or Array I could also use a Circle!
  • Insert the correct number of zeros at the start of the game, then just use player += 1 to move to the next player at each step.

'Amazon will go bankrupt': Jeff Bezos keeps talking about Amazon's inevitable death

  • It has since grown into a tech behemoth — momentarily the most valuable company in the world this week— and made him the richest man in modern history.
  • Such chatter is strikingly unusual for a CEO of a major company.
  • Media trained within an inch of their life and with demanding investors looking over their shoulders, senior executives are normally unflinchingly positive about their firm's prospects.
  • "Companies have short lifespans...
  • Bezos elaborated on his "Day One" philosophy in a 2017 letter to shareholders, in which he answered a question he'd got in an all-hands meeting about what "Day Two" looks like.
  • In a recording of an all-hands meeting obtained by CNBC, Bezos was still just as convinced of Amazon's inescapable mortality.

Hidden meanings in the 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer

  • Iron Man's armor is badly damaged after the epic battle against Thanos in Infinity War and Tony and Nebula are stranded in space, nearly out of oxygen, food, and supplies.
  • A recent interview revealed that Thanos is not actually residing on a planet but is in fact, within the Soul Stone - one of the six stones he collected during Infinity War. The gauntlet still seems damaged from "the snap," and it appears he is still carrying an injured arm.
  • And from the voiceover cues, it looks like Hawkeye's family has been snapped away by Thanos, leading him to take on the role of Ronin based on his costume.
  • And finally, Marvel has revealed the title for the fourth film, "Endgame." A direct reference to Dr. Strange's line in Infinity war forming out of the same type of dust Thanos' victims turned into.

Understanding the Fold Operation

  • So I would typically avoid them and instead write a recursive function to loop through a collection with my custom behavior.
  • (I mean it's pretty bad when recursion is the easy way, right?) But as I refactored the recursive function to isolate the custom behavior from the looping, I noticed that the recursive looping part could be easily replaced with fold.
  • As time has gone on, I figured out a way to approach folds that makes them easier to start with instead of being a refactored optimization at the end.
  • Now that we know what our answer looks like (count and sum), we can define a way to update the answer based on a single input value.
  • Then I fill in the steps to return the updated count and sum based on the value.

Lyft has officially filed paperwork to go public with an IPO in early 2019

  • Ride hailing giant and main Uber competitor Lyft has filed paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission to go public, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

  • The paper expects Lyft's IPO in the first half of 2019.
  • Lyft currently has a valuation of $15 billion, a fraction of the $120 billion valuation Uber has targeted for itself before going public.
  • However, Lyft looks ready to beat Uber to the punch with its IPO.
