      quote - mistake of 20th century biology - Ray Noble - (see below)

      • I think one of the other mistakes that have been made in biology of the 20th century
        • was to treat organisms as if they existed within an environment that was sort of like some nebulous box as it were
        • and you could study the organism by taking it out
        • and you study it in isolation
      • It's the beginning of reductionism in a sense because
        • you taken it away from the environment but the organism has an intimate relationship with the environment
      • It's feeding both
        • to the environment and
        • from the environment
      • What is that environment?
        • That environment in large part is
          • other organisms of the same species but
          • other organisms of different species
      • and it's in a continuous bubble of change
      • It's like a cauldron of change
      • So the big question for life is
        • how do you maintain yourself in this cauldron of change?
      • You cannot do it by standing still
      • You have to respond to it
        • so it's not surprising therefore that you find that you know organisms have mechanisms for responding to those changes

      adjacency - mistake of 20th century biology - between - reductionism - separating organism from environment - individual / collective gestalt, - individual / environment gestalt - adjacency relationship - The mistake that 20th century biology has made is in - ascribing too much power to the gene, and - minimizing the role of epigenetics - Focusing the majority of attention and resources on the genes of the organism, and - defocusing attention on the organisms (epigenetic) interactions with the environment, including both - biotic elements and - abiotic elements - It's not the case that the genes are the major determinant factor and the epigenetics play a minor role - It IS the case that epigenetics play an equally important role in transmitting and assimilating features into the genome - The individual organism is intertwingled with its environment and with other living organisms - The individual / collective gestalt and the individual / environment gestalt is the appropriate unit of study

    2. Ray emphasized this answer which is very usual well epigenetic inheritance only goes on for a generation or two no

      for - explanation - evolutionary biology - neo-darwinian mistake - view of epigenetic inheritance

      explanation - evolutionary biology - neo-darwinian mistake - view of epigenetic inheritance - Neo-darwinians believe that epigenetic inheritance is only short lived. - However, the Noble brothers contend that if the changes in the environment last for many generations, - the epigenetic change can exceed a threshold and become permanently assimilated into the genome - Such a threshold is plausible because without it, a permanent change encoded into the genome would be maladaptive if the environmental change reverted back to the previous state

    1. Chào mọi người, em xin chia sẻ về một người Thầy dạy em nhiều điều trong chứng khoán1) Thầy ấy rất hay khoe lãi lên facebook, lại còn là một Giám đốc học thuật của một trung tâm nên em rất tin tưởng. Địa điểm học tập là ở Tòa Nhà Ban Tuyên Giáo Q3 Nguyễn Đình Chiểu. Đặc điểm của Thầy là profile rất nice, hay nói về đạo lý và nước hoa và khoe body của Thầy (dù nó béo và đầy lipit)2) Năm 2022, Thầy ấy kêu gọi mọi người mua NLG all in đến dưới 69 full margin TP80, sau đó nó sập về 30, à, thế là cháy mất rồi. Sau đó Thầy bảo là chỉ chịu trách nhiệm hết t+3 thôi. Sau đó Thầy bảo là do xui, ra tin bắt anh Quyết thì phải chạy chứ. Thầy call ITA full margin sau đó Chị Yến bắt.3) Sau đó Thầy call PDR từ 15 nó sập về 10 sau khi nó hồi lên 14, Thầy bảo có thể còn biến số nên giảm vị thế đi, thế là nó lên 30. Thầy gáy nhân 3 nhưng hàng không biết Thầy còn cầm không4) 9 tháng trước, Thầy phân tích rất kỹ càng rồi call học viên mua AGG giá 28, giá sau đó lên 36 thì bị đạp, nhưng đạp thì Thầy vẫn bảo mọi người giữ, giữ đến 24 Thầy hỏi còn margin cho Thầy mua không và giờ nó đang có giá 21-22. Thầy phân tích AGG rất kỹ, kỹ tới nỗi Market tăng 250 điểm, BDS tăng 20 30% thì AGG từ 36 về 20. 5) Chuyện sẽ chẳng là gì nếu- Thầy bảo do xui nhưng bản chất Thầy call học viên mua cho quỹ xả, lần 2 Thầy call cho Thầy xả- Thầy bảo Quỹ Nhật vào mua AGG, Thầy nói The Sóng book lợi nhuận nhưng thì ra Thầy book lợi nhuận trên đầu con dân- Chuyện xảy ra Thầy bảo là do bạn học viên call chứ Thầy không call. Bằng bùa lợi Satire/Parody mang trên người Thầy có quyền nói mọi thứ chỉ là chế giễu thôi.- Năm 2023, Thầy call short Bank, Bank tăng, Thầy chê BTC nhưng không dám bet kèo 30 BTC cho ETF được duyệt khi có người thách.- Thầy bảo lớp được xem full danh mục, báo trước, khi có cức mà Thầy cho xem, mà chắc gì là tài khoản của Thầy hay Thầy bảo skin in the game nhưng ai biết là bỏ 500 đồng hay 500 đô. Mình viết bài này ra đây là để mọi người cẩn thận với Thầy, à mà nghe đồn Thầy từng bị trường R đuổi vì không đạt KPI, Thầy làm trái phiếu thì sai pháp lý phải làm lại, Thầy lấy profile 1 trường bên NZ nhưng chỉ là profile liên kết, chứ Thầy làm gì có bằng PhD để trường M bên NZ tuyển chính thức. À trung thâm của Thầy lùa đủ thứ, lùa quản lý tài sản, lùa CFA dù chả khác gì sách nói, lùa MA dù Thầy toàn chém gió lại.Mọi người copy share thoải mái, để người ta không còn bị lùa và để cho người ta thấy uy tín của Thầy như cái chart AGG vậy đó: Cấm thủng lòng đất

    1. One of my inquiries was for anecdotes regarding mistakes made between the twins by their near relatives. The replies are numerous, but not very varied in character. When the twins are children, they are usually distinguished by ribbons tied round the wrist or neck; nevertheless the one is sometimes fed, physicked, and whipped by mistake for the other, and the description of these little domestic catastrophes was usually given by the mother, in a phraseology that is some- [p. 158] what touching by reason of its seriousness.

    1. It is quite “normal,” and human, to not enjoy making mistakes! That is why we often feel embarrassed, deny their existence, and/or blame others for our errors. We believe that the best way is to admit your mistakes, learn from them and take corrective action. After all, a mistake is a mistake – no more, no less.

      some thoughts i have on this:

      • personally, i find that the biggest challenge on admitting mistakes is people defining you by a single mistake and constantly bringing it up in similar future situations. there is this fear of being stuck with this identity or perception from others and it can be quite daunting.

      i wonder if this is so because we often derive our understanding of ourselves through other people's perspectives. consequently, when they see us as failures in certain departments, we might easily adopt that belief too.

      this is in connection with the "spyglass self" where we view ourselves through others' eyes and shape and our identities accordingly.

      • a fascinating detail i noticed when faced with admitting a mistake is how we often shift the blame or focus onto others to avoid this uncomfortable and inconvenient situation. this behavior is interesting to me considering our pursuit of self-improvement and goodness. in these instances, empathy and compassion seem to vanish as self-preservation takes priority.

      this is a great instance in which we become trapped in our own thoughts, creating a dangerous bubble where only our well-being seem to matter. the contrast between this self-centered mindset and our usual desire for growth presents an interesting aspect of human nature.

    1. Note: For keyword parameters, use @param, not @option.

      I sure was looking for @option (knowing already about @param) and assuming/expecting that (if it exists) it would totally be the right thing to use for documenting keyword parameters. So I was quite surprised to see this much-needed warning (for me and others like me who came here expecting/assuming the same thing).

    1. For example, let’s consider the type property. For most of the projects I am working on, it isn’t practical to have a webpage dedicated to each type of possible error.

      That's not required. The standard doesn't require this to be a URL locator — merely a URI! So you can just make up a URI and use it even if it's not resolvable. ... like you did for the URN below.

    1. JavaScript is actually surprisingly fast because the demand for fast web browsers is huge

      Another way of saying that the use of V8 means that JS isn't actually an "interpreted language" (not that that's even a real thing).

    1. Historically, the uncertainty principle has been confused[5][6] with a related effect in physics, called the observer effect, which notes that measurements of certain systems cannot be made without affecting the system, that is, without changing something in a system.
    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2020, November 18). @danielmabuse yes, we all make mistakes, but a responsible actor also factors the kinds of mistakes she is prone to making into decisions on what actions to take: I’m not that great with my hands, so I never contemplated being a neuro-surgeon.

    1. This line is incorrect. Multiplication does distribute over substraction as well eg: \(7 \times (3-4) ?= (7 \times 3) - (7 \times 4)\) $$ 7 \times (-1) ?= 21 - 28 $$ $$ -7 eq -7 $$

    1. “That was not predicted,” said Joel Hirschi, principal scientist at the centre and senior author of the research. It highlights how current seasonal forecasting models are unable to predict these warm summers. And it underscores the paradox that, far from ushering in a frigid future for, say, Paris, a cooler North Atlantic might actually make France’s summers more like Morocco’s.

      As in the paragraph above, here the long-term warming hole has been conflated with the short-term North Atlantic cold anomaly, which are phenomena with very different timescales and causes.

      Predicting future short-term North Atlantic cold anomalies and subsequent possible heat waves would be done using seasonal forecasting models. Predicting the longer-term impacts of an AMOC slowdown would be done using climate models run under different emissions scenarios.

      Conflating the two mechanisms and timescales has resulted in some confusion in this part of the article.

    2. Scientists at the U.K.’s National Oceanography Centre have somewhat counterintuitively linked the cold blob in the North Atlantic with summer heat waves in Europe. In 2015 and 2018, the jet stream, a river of wind that moves from west to east over temperate latitudes in the northern hemisphere, made an unusual detour to the south around the cold blob. The wrinkle in atmospheric flow brought hotter-than-usual air into Europe, they contend, breaking temperature records.

      Here, the decadal-scale warming hole that is possibly linked to AMOC slowdown has been conflated with the shorter-term cold anomaly that featured record low North Atlantic sea surface temperatures in 2015.

      The authors of the NOC study are careful to make this distinction in their article:

      It is important to distinguish between this long-term warming hole and the short-term 2015 cold anomaly that is the focus of our study.

      The long-term warming hole that is the focus of this New York Times article is not the same thing as the short-term 2015 cold anomaly. The two phenomena have very different timescales and different causes. Current understanding suggests that the short-term 2015 cold anomaly was caused by successive winters with extreme heat loss, i.e. it was largely driven by changes in air-sea heat exchange. The longer-term warming hole may have been caused by the AMOC slowdown, as discussed in this article.

      For more information on the 2015 cold anomaly and its causes, see this review article led by Simon Josey.

    1. So, whenever you hear the medieval argument “Trailblazer is just a nasty DSL!”, forgive your opponent, you now know better. The entire framework is based on small, clean Ruby structures that can be executed programmatically.
    1. Historical LowSteam on 2020-05-100% off$0.00

      If you zoom in on the timeline, it looks like they accidentally set price to $0.00 (probably meant to set discount to 0 instead?) and then corrected it.

      17:16: 0% off of $0.00 17:23: 0% off of $19.99

      Having this mistake/outlier shown as the historical low is misleading and confusing and incorrect, and should be corrected.

    1. I've reproduced, in a very simple way, what I would like it to do: https://svelte.dev/repl/2b0b7837e3ba44b5aba8d7e774094bb4?version=3.19.1

      This is the same URL as the original example given in issue description.

      I'm guessing what happened is they started with that one, made some changes, and then I think they must have forgot to save their modified REPL (which would have generated a new, unique URL).

    1. Anti-Features

      I don't think this is what Anti-Features means. Here he's listing things that this tool lacks, some of them being good things, like the "Does not require updating every time a new Ruby version comes out". That's a feature, not an anti-feature!

      Check out how F-Droid uses the term. Anti-feature means things that are present that aren't wanted. Undesirable "features" that are present.

      Unless they are just implying (but not explicitly saying):

      Anti-features that are not included

    1. In a large code base, this will result in moving imports randomly around until stuff just happens to work. Which is often only temporary, as a small refactoring or change in import statements in the future can subtly adjust the module loading order, reintroducing the problem.
    1. Looks like the problem is that debounce defaults to waiting for 0 ms ... which is completely useless!

      It would be (and is) way to easy to omit the 2nd parameter to https://lodash.com/docs/4.17.15#debounce.

      Why is that an optional param with a default value?? It should be required!

      There must be some application where a delay of 0 is useless. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/lodash-_-debounce-method/ alludes to / implies there may be a use:

      When the wait time is 0 and the leading option is false, then the func call is deferred until to the next tick.

      But I don't know what that use case is. For the use case / application of debouncing user input (where each character of input is delayed by at least 10 ms -- probably > 100 ms -- a delay of 0 seems utterly useless.

    2. It looks like you accidentally passed resolve() (immediately invoking the function) directly to setTimeout rather than passing a function to invoke it. So it was being resolved immediately instead of after a 1000 ms delay as intended.

      I guess this is the "immediately invoked function" problem.

      Not to be confused with: immediately invoked function expression. (Since it is a regular named function and not a function expression.)

    3. You should not create a new debounce function on every render with: return new Promise(resolve => { debounce(() => resolve(this.getIsNameUnique(name)), 2000); }); Instead you should just wrap your whole function isNameUnique with the debounce (see my sandbox). By creating a new debounce function on every hit, it cannot 'remember' that is was called or that is will be called again. This will prevent the debouncing.
    1. _.debounce creates a function that debounces the function that's passed into it. What your s.search function is doing is calling _.debounce all over again every time s.search is called. This creates a whole new function every time, so there's nothing to debounce.
    2. I run s.search() by typing into an input box, and if I type gibberish very quickly, the console prints out "making search request" on every key press, so many times per second -- indicating that it hasn't been debounced at all.
    3. they're not invoking the function that _.debounce returns
    1. When using React hooks there is no concept of onMount because the idea of only running some code on mount leads to writing non-resilient components, components that do one thing when they mount, and then don’t take prop changes into account.

    1. Just throwing in <div class="{$$props.class || ''} otherChildClass"></div> seems the easiest, and it'll avoid undefined classes. I feel like many aren't noticing the undefined values getting inserted in their classes.

    1. my point is that using "into" in such a case is just as incorrect as using "inas" would be. The fact that people make mistakes doesn't change this.

      "Log in" is the only correct way to spell the verb, and the only way to be consistent with 1000s of other phrasal verbs that are spelled with a space in them.

      We don't need nor want an exception to the general rule just for "login" just because so many people have made that mistake.

    1. except, as anticipated a little earlier, any custom services

      This seems like it might not be the correct way to use "anticipated". Seems like it is meaning "as mentioned earlier". Certainly an uncommon usage, anyway.

    1. Remember to call super in any subclasses that override teardown.

      And yet the Rails core chose not to use RSpec, citing how it would be too easy to write subject == expected on accident?

    1. ∈Ck

      this sum was over all points in the training set in the previous step, and now it's over all points ?

      Just think of the case where the partition C_i is made up of singletons, one for each possible point. Then, the robustness would be zero, but the generalizatoin error bound doesn't seem right then.

      This made me suspect there may be something wrong, and I think it could be at this step. If we kept the sum to be over training sets, now we can;t upper bound the result by the max in the next two lines, I think!

    1. assume that the average class in a district has 252525 students

      Assume that average student-to-teacher ratio in a district is 25 students. In regression model our dependent variable is student to teacher ratio not the size of the class. That's why, when we want to make a prediction we should take correct value for our explanatory variable.

      P.S. what is written would be correct if every class has one and only one teacher.

    1. Please do not make the mistake of trying to reduce the HAVING clause with a little false relational algebra to: 1 HAVING COUNT(PS1.plane_name) = COUNT(H1.plane_name) because it does not work; it will tell you that the hangar has (n) planes in it and the pilot_name is certified for (n) planes, but not that those two sets of planes are equal to each other.

    1. Because they're more integrated and try to serialize an incomplete system (e.g. one with some kind of side effects: from browser/library/runtime versions to environment to database/API changes), they will tend to have high false-negatives (failing test for which the production code is actually fine and the test just needs to be changed). False negatives quickly erode the team's trust in a test to actually find bugs and instead come to be seen as a chore on a checklist they need to satisfy before they can move on to the next thing.

    1. If we’re speaking of garden-variety errors, the most common error I’ve observed that manages to get past any number of sets of expert eyes and wind up printed in books is the use of “lead” where “led” is meant—that is, the past tense of the verb “to lead.”
    2. They mistake the apostrophe for a piece of punctuation when it is a spelling issue.

    1. Over the period in which the US has reduced public funding per student, the pattern has entrenched itself. It’s too early in Great Britain’s experiment with tuition-based university funding to see the divergence - but under the current model it will happen. The real difference between the US and British systems is that Great Britain can still easily fix its higher education mistake.

      So, no way out for the US at this point...
