Walking through Support Vector Regression and LSTMs with stock price prediction

  • This was just a fun project to learn the some of the basic techniques that go into stock analysis using neural networks.
  • The forget gate takes the previous hidden state from the previous LSTM cell and the current input and multiples them.
  • The input gate takes the previous hidden state multiplied by the input and passes it through a sigmoid.
  • Then the previous hidden state is multiplied by the input and passed into a tan activation function which squishes the values into a range of -1 to 1.
  • We take the previous hidden state multiply it by the input and pass into a sigmoid activation function.
  • Then we pass the cell state value into a tan activation function.
  • We then multiply the tan output by the sigmoid output to decide what data the hidden state should carry on to the next LSTM cell.

Trump wages more war on California

  • Trump, who's visiting California on a fundraising trip, announced Wednesday that he is revoking a special status the state gets under the Clean Air Act in an effort to nuke fuel economy standards set by Sacramento, creating a situation where the President of a party that has long built itself around a message of freeing states from the yoke of federal oversight is trying to impose his will and his policy on every state in the union.
  • The Clean Air Act mentions California by name and gives the state authority to set its own standards as long as they aren't less stringent than federal ones.
  • When the Trump administration made clear it had zero interest in lowering US carbon emissions, California stepped into the void, making the state's government the country's leader on addressing climate change.

Trump strips California of power to set auto emission standards

  • The White House has stripped California of its right to set its own vehicle emissions standards and banned other states from setting similar rules.
  • The waiver allowed the state - America's most populous - to set stricter standards than the federal government.
  • The state was allowed to set tougher emission standards than the federal government as long as it could provide a compelling reason for why the waiver was needed.
  • That same month, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said it would end rules limiting carbon emissions on new coal plants, soon after the president dismissed a report by his own government warning of future devastating economic consequences to the US from climate change.
  • Car regulations are one of the ways California, by itself one of the world's largest economies, can effectively set national standards regardless of federal action.

California Promises to Fight EPA Plan on Car Standards

  • The Trump administration's plan to revoke California's ability to set its own clean car standards promises to ignite a monumental legal fight between a dozen states and the federal government.
  • His comments came after news broke that Trump EPA officials will announce a formal effort as soon as today to repeal California's ability to set vehicle standards that exceed federal requirements.
  • The 1970 Clean Air Act folded in California's authority to set its own standards, because the state's law predated the federal act.
  • There's no legal precedent for the planned EPA action, said Julia Stein, project director for the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at UCLA School of Law. That makes one wonder whether the agency will rely on its "inherent authority" under the Clean Air Act, said Thad Lightfoot, partner at Dorsey & Whitney law firm in Minneapolis.

Judge rules the mechanic accused of sabotaging an American Airlines plane must remain in custody citing alleged terrorism connections

  • A federal judge cited new evidence of potential terrorism sympathies Wednesday in denying bail for a longtime mechanic charged with sabotaging an American Airlines jetliner that prosecutors say could have caused it to crash with 150 people aboard.
  • Alani, 60, also recently sent a $700 wire transfer to someone in Iraq — where he has extended family — and had videos on his cellphone depicting Islamic State mass murders he shared with others, prosecutors said.
  • Alani is charged with sabotaging a Boeing 737 with 150 passengers and crew aboard at Miami International Airport in July because, he told authorities, ongoing labor negotiations were jeopardizing his chances at earning overtime.
  • Alani has been fired from his job at the airline and the Federal Aviation Administration recently revoked his certificate as an aircraft mechanic, Dunham said.

Trump moves to kill California’s clean car standards

  • The news comes just a few weeks after four automakers (Volkswagen, Ford, BMW, and Honda) announced a deal with California that would see them make their new car fleets cleaner year over year, which was viewed as a side-step of the Trump administration’s ongoing attempt to roll back an Obama-era rule regarding vehicle pollution regulations.
  • This new fight centers around a Clean Air Act waiver granted to California in the 1970s that lets the state set separate standards from the federal regulations.
  • One of the reasons Trump is picking a fight over the waiver now, before his administration has rolled out its final rewrite of the Obama-era emissions rule, is that the White House hopes to have enough time to take the case all the way up to the Supreme Court, according to The New York Times.

Trump steps into a state's fight for clean air

  • Washington (CNN) - President Donald Trump announced Wednesday he was revoking California's authority to set its own vehicle emission standards, the latest move in the Trump administration's ongoing fight with the Golden State and attempts to chip away at former President Barack Obama's environmental legacy.
  • He made the announcement while visiting California for fundraisers.
  • He was in his hotel in Los Angeles when he sent the tweets.
  • California's waiver under the Clean Air Act allowed it to set standards tighter than the federal standards, which have been adopted by more than a dozen states and became the de-facto nationwide standard, because automakers do not design different sets of vehicles to meet different standards in different states.
  • This story is breaking and will be updated.
  • Correction: The headline has been changed to correctly state that the waiver allowed California to set higher emissions standards.
