The $10m Engineering Problem

  • Core product - the cost to ingest one million events and process them with Kafka.
  • It also gives us some measure of isolation; even if a single nsqd fails, the rest of the pipeline can continue processing data.
  • When a single instance is processing tens of thousands of messages per second, data can quickly add up.
  • We gave each host a 500gb GP2 EBS drive to compensate, adding $50 per month in cost for each compute instance we’d run, regardless of whether we actually needed the disk.
  • The fact that nsqd can run co-located on an instance and is isolated from all other nodes makes it appealing for this super-high availability use case.
  • We’d already used Kafka in a handful of places in our pipeline but to eliminate our costly drives, NSQ spacers, and cross-network traffic, we’d have to migrate a bunch of our services to use Kafka.

Clustering & Machine Learning Combination in Sales Prediction

  • From the histogram, we can see the distribution of the average weekly transactions of Group0 is right skewed.
  • The box plot displays that the 3rd quartile is 0.51, where the majority products in this group have < 1 transactions per week.
  • For further analysis, let’s select a representative product with average weekly transaction closer to median or mean.
  • This looks like a static series and the most appropriate way is to copy the current data to predict the future assuming the transactions will be same as the previous year for a certain product in Group 0.
  • The representative product of this group is the product whose number of transactions is minimally different from the mean.
  • Since the original data of P318 is a white noise, it is very difficult to make a good prediction for this time series.

I want my daughter to love Harry Potter as much as I do — that’s why I love these printed swaddles and blankets

  • I grew up loving Harry Potter and I want to pass down that magic to my daughter Ellie.
  • In fact, I love Harry and the Wizarding World so much that my coworkers threw the cutest Harry Potter-themed baby shower when I was pregnant with Ellie, who is now 15 months old.
  • It's safe to say the Harry Potter collection didn't disappoint and Ellie will be snuggling up with the magical prints for years to come.
  • If I had to choose a favorite, it would be the golden Hedwig print, and I also love the symbolism of wrapping Ellie in a Patronus-inspired print.
  • I can just picture a cute Harry Potter-themed newborn photo session with these swaddles and blankets; those who aren't dedicated Potterheads will still love the whimsical prints too.
  • We operate independently from our advertising sales team.

I’ve been using these drugstore skin-care products for more than 9 years — here’s why they’re ideal for my sensitive skin

  • For years, I struggled to find the right skin-care products that wouldn't leave my sensitive skin with new breakouts, irritation, or dry patches, or my bank account with a negative balance.
  • Forget haystacks — for me, finding a skin-care line that didn't irritate my sensitive skin or cost a fortune was like finding a needle in a pile of needles.
  • Simple's Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturizer: The year was 2010 and I was a very price-conscious grad student in NY looking to combat my winter-wrecked skin, which rebelled against every drugstore moisturizer I tried.
  • Simple Micellar Facial Wipes: Once I knew that Simple was the skin-care line for me, I was in the market of replacing a few of my most-used beauty products.
  • But Simple's Water Boost Hydrating Sheet Mask is infused with gentle minerals and plant extracts that don't irritate my skin.
