    1. files with characters after the last newline are not text files, and those characters don't constitute a line. In many cases those bogus characters are better left ignored or removed, though there are cases where you may want to treat it as a extra line, so it's good you show how.

    1. Certainly you could adapt the code to round rather than truncate should you need to; often I find truncation feels more natural as that is effectively how clocks behave.

      What do you mean exactly? Compared clocks, or at least reading of them. What's a good example of this? If it's 3:55, we would say 3:55, or "5 to 4:00", but wouldn't probably say that it's "3".

    1. Again, what the fuck this is.

    2. Not Sure How. It might be using the summation of geometric series. How is \(a^n\) handled. Mutiply the \(a\) in and then use the geometric summations, and then we should get the inequality.

    3. Thus, there exists 1 ∈ (−1, 1) such that

      Not sure what this mean.

    1. Topsoil has different grades. Lower-grade topsoils are meant for filling and leveling holes and should only be used for that purpose. Higher-grade topsoils are great for conditioning or adding organic matter to the native soil. Neither grade should be used when planting.

      Should not be used for planting anything?? Hmm.

    1. The discussion here can get very fast-paced. I am trying to periodically pause it to allow new folks, or people who don't have quite as much time, to catch up. Please feel free to comment requesting such a pause if you would like to contribute but are having trouble following it all.

      Why is it necessary to pause Can't new person post their question/comment even if it's in reply to comment #10 and the latest comment happens to be comment #56? There's no rule against replying/discussing something that is not the very latest thing to be posted in a discussion!

      Possibly due to lack of a threaded discussion feature in GitHub? I think so.

      Threads would allow replies to "quick person" A to go under their comment, without flooding the top level with comments... thus alowing "new person" B to post a new comment, which in so doing creates a new thread, which can have its own discussion.

    1. "I didn't fully understand it at the time, but throughout my time as a freshman at Boston College I've realized that I have the power to alter myself for the better and broaden my perspective on life. For most of my high school experience, I was holding to antiquated thoughts that had an impact on the majority of my daily interactions. Throughout my life, growing up as a single child has affected the way am in social interactions. This was evident in high school class discussions, as I did not yet have the confidence to be talkative and participate even up until the spring term of my senior year."

    1. Arguments for “it depends.”

      Exploratory research - descriptive -- light instrumentation Confirmatory study - use well structured Multiple case - standardization will help to cross compare.

    1. Why can you remove it? The loader will first try to resolve @import as a relative path. If it cannot be resolved, then the loader will try to resolve @import inside node_modules.
    1. But it is always important to remember that those are not language concepts. Those are community concepts that only exist in our heads and in the names of some library methods.

      I'm not sure about this. I get what he's saying and agree that singleton methods are nothing but a naming convention for the more fundamental/atomic construct called instance methods (which indeed are the only kind of method that exist in Ruby, depending how you look at it), but I think I would actually say that singleton methods are language concepts because those methods like Object#define_singleton_method, ... are always available in Ruby (without needing to require a standard library first, for example). In other words, I would argue that something belonging in the Ruby core "library" (?) by definition makes it part of the language -- even if it in turn builds on even lower-level Ruby language features/constructs.

    1. (Ideally the run-time library would treat a pipe in the same way as a console, but it seems that most don't.)

      Often/usually treating a pipe/redirect differently is in fact what you want.

      Like if you output to a file, you don't necessarily want colors or real-time progress/status outputted along with it: you want just the bare data to be saved, which can then be filtered in useful ways with other standard tools like grep and sed.

    1. Fexeel ba kër gi bañ ñàkk alkol.

      Veille à ce qu'il ne manque pas d'alcool à la maison.

      fexe+el (fexe) v. -- search/seek by all means.

      ba -- the (?).

      kër gi -- house; family.

      gi -- the (indicates nearness).

      bañ v. -- refuse, resist, refuse to; to hate; verb marking the negation in subordinate clauses.

      ñàkk v. / ñàkk bi -- vaccinate / vaccine (not sure exactly how this fits in the sentence if it's even the right translation -- perhaps it has to do with surgical alcohol rather than drinking alcohol).

      alkol ji -- (French) surgical alcohol. (I'm certain this is also used for the type of alcohol you drink -- but sangara is probably the most used term).


    1. For example, a married business professional and mother may use her smartphone for six hours per day while traveling to and from her office and client appointments. Her smartphone use while “on the go” for arranging appointments, engaging in client phone calls, and note-taking for later invoicing and reporting is clearly a productive use of her time, as long as she can adequately relax and enjoy her evening, and spend some quality time with her family. In this scenario, the professional’s smartphone use, although extensive (six hours daily) does not appear to involve functional impairment or significant distress

      Örneğin, evli bir iş profesyoneli ve anne, ofisine ve müşteri randevularına gidip gelirken akıllı telefonunu günde altı saat kullanabilir. Randevu ayarlamak, müşteri telefon görüşmeleri yapmak ve daha sonra faturalandırmak ve raporlamak için not almak için "hareket halindeyken" akıllı telefon kullanması, yeterince rahatlayabildiği ve akşamının tadını çıkarabildiği sürece, zamanının verimli bir şekilde kullanılması ve ailesiyle biraz kaliteli zaman geçirmek. Bu senaryoda, profesyonellerin akıllı telefon kullanımı, kapsamlı olmasına rağmen (günde altı saat), işlevsel bozukluk veya önemli bir sıkıntı içeriyor gibi görünmemektedir.

    1. The only problem is that our PJAX library is no longer maintained and was preventing us from updating jQuery (ugh). So it had to go.

      https://github.com/MoOx/pjax doesn't say it's no longer maintained (though hasn't been updated in 2 years), and does say that it doesn't use jQuery. Oh well.

    1. Identifying the potential mechanisms of change was a critical step in the development of the intervention. It was at this stage that we incorporated the first of our other intervention development approaches by identifying relevant behaviour change theories and techniques. We conducted a search to identify the intervention components most likely to contribute to successful weight loss, as well as components associated with successful and unsuccessful interventions. We also conducted a search for web-based and other technology-based interventions and those involving any kind of social support, whether from friends, family, colleagues or groups such as Weight Watchers. We also conducted an internet search for websites or apps aimed at changing health behaviours around diet and physical activity. We found many sites that utilised monetary incentives or prizes, competition with others, behavioural goals, and social support elements such as chat forums. However, we did not identify any that included family members and friends to encourage and promote weight-related behaviour change in the way we envisaged. Our review of the literature and 6SQuID steps 1 and 2 provided us with the rationale to develop an intervention for adults with obesity, using technology in the form of an app/website, to facilitate social support for weight loss. The resulting intervention is, thus, a combination of (1) individual behaviour change approaches, (2) social support and (3) the use of technology.

      Potansiyel değişim mekanizmalarını incelemek, müdahalenin geliştirilmesinde kritik bir adımdı. Bu aşamada, ilgili davranış değişikliği teorilerini ve tekniklerini belirleyerek diğer müdahale geliştirme yaklaşımlarımızdan ilkini dahil ettik. Başarılı kilo vermeye katkıda bulunma olasılığı en yüksek olan müdahale bileşenlerini ve başarılı ve başarısız müdahalelerle ilişkili bileşenleri belirlemek için bir araştırma yaptık. Ayrıca, web tabanlı ve diğer teknoloji tabanlı müdahaleler ve ister arkadaşlardan, aileden, meslektaşlardan veya Weight Watchers gibi gruplardan olsun, her türlü sosyal desteği içerenler için bir araştırma yaptık. Ayrıca diyet ve fiziksel aktivite ile ilgili sağlık davranışlarını değiştirmeyi amaçlayan web siteleri veya uygulamalar için bir internet araştırması yaptık. Parasal teşvikler veya ödüller, başkalarıyla rekabet, davranışsal hedefler ve sohbet forumları gibi sosyal destek unsurlarından yararlanan birçok site bulduk. Ancak, öngördüğümüz şekilde ağırlığa bağlı davranış değişikliğini teşvik etmek ve teşvik etmek için aile üyeleri ve arkadaşları içeren herhangi bir kişi tespit etmedik. Literatüre ve 6SQuID adım 1 ve 2'ye ilişkin incelememiz, kilo kaybı için sosyal desteği kolaylaştırmak için bir uygulama / web sitesi biçiminde teknoloji kullanarak obez yetişkinlere yönelik bir müdahale geliştirme mantığını bize sağladı. Sonuç olarak ortaya çıkan müdahale, (1) bireysel davranış değişikliği yaklaşımları, (2) sosyal destek ve (3) teknoloji kullanımının bir kombinasyonudur.

    1. Irwin Consulting Services Review - How to make sure of a safer winter road trip

      Winter season brings in the beauty of cold and white nature. Many people look forward to this kind of weather because they can stay wrapped in their blankets or jackets the whole day while drinking hot chocolate and watching good movies. This month can be the most exciting month for many families because of the holiday season, and a lot of people are making last minute shopping and getting all their preparations done. With this, many individuals are getting busy using their cars to go to different places to buy things or products they needed for their Christmas and New Year celebrations. Others have been doing outdoor activities with their family members, friends or colleagues.

      But no matter what the reason is, using your car during this season requires careful preparation to avoid accidents on the road. Irwin Consulting Services would like to provide some help in this regard through some helpful guidelines elucidated in the next paragraphs.

      Consider changing into winter tires. This is often advised by many experts especially during this season, and it is even mandatory on particular places in the United States. Snow or winter tires provide traction that is better than all other tires when temperatures are at or below 7 degrees Celsius. Such allows greater control and shorter stopping distances on road surfaces during the cold and snowy weather. If you notice that some of your family members, relatives or friends don’t own this kind of tire, then you must advise them to buy some for their own safety and for all the people who will be riding with them in their cars. The price of this kind of tire can be higher than others but you can be certain that it is all worth it in the long run.

      Put drifts into consideration while you’re on the road. You don’t want to be involved in any risky car spins scenarios right? It would be best to be careful with snow drifts because even if you’re driving on a clear road but with some speed, strong winds of winter can push those drifts on the clear road, which can lead to unwanted accidents if you’re not paying attention.

      Make sure to properly cover the lids. In order to prevent moisture from freezing, you must cover the tire valves. Doing this, you can avoid air from escaping with the caps properly covered and also prevent having a flat tire.

      Provide sufficient air. Going out of the house and engaging in long trips with your car can be a challenge this winter season because of the change in temperatures and other related aspects. If you wish to face the snowy roads prepared, then often check your tire pressure. Make sure to include this condition on your tire maintenance to have the tires in its best shape even with low temperatures and high air pressure.

      Preparation is always the key. You can’t win against wintery roads if you’re not prepared to face its consequences. Bring with you some hats, mitts, and even a shovel organized inside your car trunk. Include in your winter driving kit a kitty litter too because it can provide traction to your car on icy or snowy roads. Bring an extra jug of winter windshield washer fluid as well especially during long trips to ensure visibility.

      Pass on the knowledge. Some teenagers usually have a less proper understanding of wintery roads. It is your duty as an adult to remind them about the pivotal matters to consider in facing a snowy road to maintain their safety and their young lives. Irwin Consulting Services wanted you to be their guardian on the road, and if you’re a teen reading this then always remember to be prepared and be careful, and always listen to the advice of your older family members or friends.

      Your tires also have its limits. You should have ample knowledge to identify when to replace them for good. You can change winter tires every two to three seasons as per advised by car experts. If you wanted to give new purpose to your old tires, a tire collector knows the best ways, so better get in touch with one within your neighborhood.

      Irwin Consulting Services had previously provided some tips and guidelines on how to ensure indoor and outdoor safety during this holiday season, and this article is part of their objective to give helpful information to the public in making sure of their safety during any weather conditions.

    1. distributing pamphlets that urged an overthrow of the government

      The pamphlets were urging the resistance of the draft, but the book did not state that the attempt was to overthrow the government. Only to express his political ideals.
