Company: write an efficient sorting algorithm for this large data set
Me: sure! Types "# sort large data method..."
Me: Done! I think.
For all of human history, there's been a chance that a child will die in a car-accident or be abducted by a child predator on his way to school every day. We haven't said that kids should stop going to school because of this, have we?
There's a non-zero chance people will die traveling to and from work today. We haven't said that people should stop working to save lives, have we?
I think that most people being bad at understanding risk-management is at the core of why there's there's such big divide with how to react to Covid.
So when it comes to cars, what you're saying is that "some of you will die, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make". Am I reading that correctly?
PS: The above is obvious sarcasm. See how ridiculous bad risk-management calculations sound?
> Additionally society cannot live with hospitals operating at reduced capacity because of COVID overflow.
Color me skeptical about the severity of this risk for 2 big reasons.
1) Look at actions, not words. Think about how governors and hospitals are acting. If there was a genuine fear of the hospitals collapsing, they'd be putting out daily public service announcements begging for retired doctors, people with any medical training whatsoever, or even random nuns to come and volunteer to tend to the sick and dying. Instead they're mass-firing healthy "health care heroes" who refuse to get a vaccine. Is that the act of people who are genuinely concerned about overwhelming the health care system?
2) This sensationalism has been happening every cold and flu season: see pic-related. Hospitals are designed to perpetually run at close to full capacity for financial reasons. https://i.imgur.com/50eqkXq.jpg
Point #1 government is doing everything they can to prevent that collapse scenario. I'd need to understand more about the machinations of the hospital policies you mentioned. No link to your sources, but I imagine it's not as black and white as you are suggesting.
I find it interesting that some people are like "it's not that bad, why do we need these restrictions? Everything is functioning, what's the problem?"
The thing is "it's not that bad" because of all the restrictions and vaccines. If we did nothing hospitals would absolutely be fucked and people would be dying in the halls.
Model me a world where we didn't bother with masks and other measures, then let's talk.
Here's a few American, Canadian, and European news stories detailing similar sentiments from well before the Covid mass hysteria programming.
> government is doing everything they can to prevent that collapse scenario.
Deeds show intent better than empty words.
If they were genuinely concerned about the healthcare system collapsing due to a flood of sick people, they would be screaming daily begging for more health care workers: not firing healthy workers to have Covid positive health-care workers work.
Society has been sold a false bill of goods.
None of your sources talk about hospitals being "designed" to run at full capacity for profit. Canadian, UK, and most other EU hospitals don't run for profit, so that leaves the US. I doubt you'll find a medical director that claims the way to maximize profit is to design a hospital that is on the edge of meltdown every flu season.
"they would be screaming daily begging for more health care workers"
There are many more sources citing hospitals struggling to find nurses, your last two citations demonstrate how desperate hospitals are by re-hiring folk who refuse to get vaccinated or are asymptomatic. How desperate do you have to be to put patients at risk of getting infected from their health care worker? I mean talk about rock and a hard place, that's a fucked up position to have to be in and shows that there are very few other avenues to go down.
There's 2 movies on 1 screen when it comes to the actual stats surrounding Covid-19, so I'm not going to argue that with you.
I'll just ask you about what's serving as the "control groups". How are, say, Amish Country PA and Florida doing? Forget any stats about "cases" you can come up with for a moment: how are normal peoples' actual lives going in places where masks and most preventative measures are less common? Are people living their lives more or less normally, or are these regions wastelands of disease and death with survivors roaming the streets begging for medical attention?
Forget stats about cases in order to understand stats on cases in areas with fewer preventative measures? What kind of crazy is that?
If you do care to look at stats on the Amish community there is this paper: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34117598/
And I think we all know how Florida is doing: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article25729082...
I don't know how else to understand COVID impact without data and factual, meaningful statistics.
Life in these places is more or less the same as it always has been, other than it passing the peak of cold season. People go out without forced masks and having to show their medical histories to enter buildings. Yet these places haven't collapsed. Why not?
If the Covid narrative that we had to mask up everywhere and check your papers to ensure safety or society would collapse is accurate, why is this "control group" (for lack of a better term) not collapsing?
We've had very high rates of death, and we've destroyed our economy.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the UK implemented vaccine and mask mandates?
Many movies these days are simply a formula that as a middle aged person I've seen so many times I just can't watch action or superhero movies, I have zero interest. I am not the target audience though. Even movies aimed at my demographic are laden with tropes, little interesting or creative storyline.
Long form TV is generally much more creative story based and does not reboot old TV so much (Bell Air is more of an exception than a rule).
Re: Bel Air reboot, "dark reboot of light comedy series" is such a ridiculous cliche that I can't believe they've actually done it. Very 2020s.
I'd add Theater of Blood (Vincent Price thespian camp horror with a large number of cameos from British character actors of the 1970s), Tomorrow I’ll Wake Up And Scald Myself With Tea (Soviet time-travel twin-swap comedy), and White Sun Of The Desert, which is traditionally watched by astronauts in their last night of pre-launch quarantine at Baikonur. https://24htech.asia/i-was-bored-so-i-watched-the-movie-that... ; that has some legitimately great shots in it.
To the original question, if you like technicolor you owe it to yourself to see Singin' In The Rain, not just for the title dance sequence but several other big numbers.
Agree with the rest, but I'm afraid that i find 99.95% of the current TV series as boring as superhero movies. At least a movie finishes in (up to) 3 hours...
No it doesn't. Github Issues/Projects replicates about 10% of Jira.
Maybe basic issue tracking is fine for your use case. But if you have multiple teams or need to do planning across longer time horizons e.g. SAFE then this is where Jira comes into its own.
without using a vendor-specific markup format, too!
I think she's looking for publicity more than anything, seems to me she's as manipulative and cynical as she is wealthy and successful.
For me the canvas was powerful, I could use a wacom to draw, tween motion between frames and visualize the whole thing quickly with playhead scrubbing, and keyframe tweaking etc.
I don't miss Flash but it would be really interesting to see how it would be used in today's mature webscape.
Facebook has made some wonderful software, and it has fundamentally degraded humanity.
This is what I find so hypocritical on Facebook complaints, washing over how the meat for the sausage is paid for and the animal was slaughtered, only because it tastes good and the complainers want more of it on their plate.
If what Facebook does is so amoral then don't use software paid with selling their customers' data.
