Re: All about Cats

My fluffies: Camembert and Bleu (Gorgonzola-style as you can tell from the holes) 8B36C1B2-D5A2-4FE0-A28F-D61EAC0886E9.jpegA092BD0F-BDB2-49D2-9F33-81942D5A9045.jpeg No idea why I spontaneously started making them heart-shaped (probably because I love making them!), but in the next batch I will make...

Re: If you are bored with Deep Networks

Has anyone had a look at rekognition?

Unsurprisingly, it seems not without controversy.

Re: Economic theory blogs/forums

BTW, I saw someone very similar to Krugman on the underground today. It was surely my sleepy brain defragmenting this forum topic as I know that fat finance cats don't use underground. Or has he come to advise us on Brexit? https://whyevolutionistrue.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/paul-krugman-and-the...

Re: Economic theory blogs/forums

Thanks for all the suggestions. The poverty of the economicists' responses to the the recent political rejection of neoliberalism (for want of a better phrase) from both left and right, I find telling. Clearly (and rightfully) there is a great deal of commentary on inequality there seems a lack of p...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Given the damage he is doing to the country (and probably to the world), we can only hope he receives the proper punishment for his treason.
 
reelection? (I hear the job is quite stressful).

Re: All about Cats

I'm not like a cow! I walk like a queen! Any direction and distance in a straight or diagonal line :-) He's a rook - or maybe a crow because he walks as the crow flies. I can never tell those two birds apart. You should take him across the diagonal road crossing at Oxford Circus. Officially sanctio...

Re: Economic theory blogs/forums

Hi Don't know if there are any practicing economists in these parts, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend economic theory  blogs or forums.? Given current events and political debates I feel there should be more of a pulse to this subject but cannot find it.. Found this recently - maybe us...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

All of this starts to make me wonder what is actually in these tax returns.  Previously I had thought it was just a partisan political football but now wonder what malfeasance they could possibly show? To fight this hard against it it would have to be something a bit more significant that overstatin...

Re: Melodic Metal

Dodsrit (Junior on drums) is playing in Nijmegen Saturday, the city I lived in all those years ago. It is also the city of the botched Market Garden project (Arnhem) ... the Americans bombed Nimegen thinking (so they said) it was Kleve. 750 civilians lost their lives. Nijmegen is the oldest city in...

Re: Classical music thread...

I have just heard Beth Gibbons' & the Polish National Radio Symphony's recording of Gorecki's 3rd symphony on the radio.
I thought it remarkable.
It seems to me we are experiencing more thread drift than usual this week.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

" At the time this struck me as a bit hypothetical at the time but the age of Trump inures one to all paradoxes.  To openly talk of the firing a prosecutor who is investigating you, to investigate the possibility of using a presidential pardon to pardon one's self,  to write strongly intimidating t...

Re: Classical music thread...

That is not blunt at all! Yes, I stuck to the promise we would always live in a place with a garden, but they tended to be the ones that go along with Victorian terraced house stock. Dark, overlooked and filled with ancient builders rubble. Plus you get to play the Londoners game of when everyone si...
