    1. Running BLOOM on a VPS or locally even is either expensive or very slow. Mostly because of the sheer size of the 176B model. Share it in a group of similar users on a VPS set-up? Use the Hugging Face API for BLOOM?

    1. MyRocks tuning for better false positive rate

      With MyRocks, you can control the size of the bloom filter bitmap with the column family parameter memtable_prefix_bloom_size_ratio. For good performance, the filter blocks are cached in the RocksDB block cache and normally stay there since they are accessed frequently.

      The filter_policy variable controls the number of bits per key in the column family settings. By default, 10 bits are used per key which yields less than 1% of false positives.

    2. Bloom Filter factors

      1. Size of the bitmap
      2. Number of keys in the list
      3. Number of bits set to “1” for each key value

      The number of false positives would be low, but 1GB is a lot of memory. In most cases a bitmap of a few hundred bytes is sufficient.

    1. Encouraged by his friend Saul Bellow, he decided to turn the article into a book. “The Closing of the American Mind,” which Simon & Schuster brought out in February, 1987, launched a campaign of criticism of American higher education that has taken little time off since.

    1. How Bloom’s works with course level and lesson level objectives: Course level objectives are broad. You may only have 3-5 course level objectives. They would be difficult to measure directly because they overarch the topics of your entire course. Lesson level objectives are what we use to demonstrate that a student has mastery of the course level objectives. We do this by building lesson level objectives that build toward the course level objective. For example, a student might need to demonstrate mastery of 8 lesson level objectives in order to demonstrate mastery of one course level objective. Because the lesson level objectives directly support the course level objectives, they need to build up the Bloom’s taxonomy to help your students reach mastery of the course level objectives. Use Bloom’s Taxonomy to make sure that the verbs you choose for your lesson level objectives build up to the level of the verb that is in the course level objective. The lesson level verbs can be below or equal to the course level verb, but they CANNOT be higher in level. For example, your course level verb might be an Applying level verb, “illustrate.” Your lesson level verbs can be from any Bloom’s level that is equal or below this level (applying, understanding, or remembering).

      Bloom's taxonomy can be used to write successful lesson objectives. Lesson level objectives are what we use to demonstrate student mastery of the course level objective.

      Knowledge is the basis of the 6 cognitive processes in Bloom's revised taxonomy.

    1. The cognitive domain involves knowledge and the development of intellectual skills (Bloom, 1956). This includes the recall or recognition of specific facts, procedural patterns, and concepts that serve in the development of intellectual abilities and skills. There are six major categories of cognitive an processes, starting from the simplest to the most complex

    1. There is no silver bullet. In fact, there are all kinds of non-obvious factors that influence how well a given educational strategy works for a given student.

      there is no magic bullet to realize 2-sigma educational improvement

    2. not all subjects lend themselves equally well to being broken up into small, discrete, and straightforwardly measurable learning objectives that can be determinatively sequenced

      not all? or maybe even not most?

    1. Filmmaker Jamie Scott made his name in the timelapse space with Fall, a Central Park timelapse of epic proportions that took 6 months of dedication to capture. And yet his followup timelapse, titled Spring, somehow puts his first creation to shame.

    1. Lilacs out of the dead land

      It's a strange image almost like flowers blooming in a cemetery, which is basically the land of the dead. The fact that such a beautiful thing can come from dirt/soil that no one cares too much about is unnatural, or abnormal.
