Comparing Q-grades of Coffees: Regions, Years, and Processing

  • Previously, I looked at how well each sub-metric of a Q-grade correlates to the total score, and some interesting notes popped out for certain years and regions.
  • Would this reveal anything about coffee similarities across region, year, or process method?
  • South America seems to be the most similar across the years to itself, and I suspect that is due to more coffees being washed instead of natural or dry processed.
  • A simplification of this table can be seen below when calculating the average similarity for Dry vs Dry, Dry vs Wet, and Wet vs Wet. In some cases, the dry processed scores are better compared to the wet processed rather than other dry processed beans.
  • Q-grading is subjective, but the aim is to have a common language to talk about coffee in a compare/contrast way.

Create a web app in under thirty minutes with Streamlit, MongoDB and Heroku

  • The first stage of the pipeline ($search) is the part that utilizes our full-text index; here we use fuzzy matching to match our previously generated resume key phrases with the ‘industry’ attribute in the dataset.
  • It is worthy to mention that Streamlit has developed its own ‘one-click deployment’ option where you can integrate your GitHub repository with Streamlit and deploy your app free of charge.
  • Before we proceed, you need to create four files that will be deployed with your source code.
  • The setup.sh file tells Heroku how to configure the Streamlit app and can be created using a text editor such as Atom and must be saved with a .sh extension.
  • Since your Heroku account is integrated with GitHub, you may update/modify your code at any time and redeploy the app as before.
  • Congrats on deploying your web app using Streamlit, MongoDB and Heroku!

Microsoft Azure announces its first region in Austria

  • In total, Azure now features 65 cloud regions — though that number includes some that aren’t online yet.
  • As its competitors like to point out, not all of them feature multiple availability zones yet, but the company plans to change that.
  • Talking about availability zones, in addition to announcing this new data center region, Microsoft also today announced plans to expand its cloud in Brazil, with new availability zones to enable high-availability workloads launching in the existing Brazil South region in 2021.
  • Currently, this region only supports Azure workloads but will add support for Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365 and Power Platform over the course of the next few months.
  • That last part may sound a bit naive, but the specific plan here is to use AI to predict likely deforestation zones based on data from satellite images.

Encouraging tech growth in midsize US cities can help speed recovery - Business Insider

  • Combined, the direct and indirect effects of job creation –– a factor of four or more –– as well as the economic growth of the tech sector makes it unrivaled as an industry.
  • Yet, while most startups and venture capital firms are concentrated in San Francisco, New York, and Boston – cities that have recently seen significant outbound migration as evidenced in rent decreases — midsize cities should also develop their tech credentials.
  • Recently proposed legislation by Senators Dick Durbin and Christopher Coons would fund federal investment for research innovation centers in ten midsize areas, a small but important step towards spreading tech sector growth.
  • This tech-sector tethering to existing industry clusters is what can allow midsize cities to develop their competitive advantage in the tech economy.
  • Creating special zones, or federally-supported innovation districts, with economic benefits for firms who train or hire locally could further advance these non-coastal growth centers.

Wales heads down Victorian path as Britain's COVID-19 unity frays

  • London | The British nation of Wales has plunged its 3.1 million people into a two-week lockdown that will shutter everything except schools and unavoidable office work, creating another layer of confusion in Britain's patchwork COVID-19 response.
  • Scotland has put tight limits on the hospitality sector, and the much smaller region of Northern Ireland is under hefty restriction; but England, a population of 56 million, is under a patchwork of differing rules and bickering public authorities.
  • Manchester, which is home to 2.8 million, has been resisting Prime Minister Boris Johnson's demand that it move into the toughest level of his government's three-tier lockdown regime, in which most shops remain open but all household socialising is banned.
  • Britain's confusing patchwork of tiers and separate national regimes is creating a sense of a government struggling to impose itself on the situation.
