John Wick 2 finally out!
Im talkin colds/allergies/other random shit..i literally used to get colds every other month but this year, i havent been sick since early this year..i did start dieting and eating better but i dunno if that caused my immune system to get stronger? i work in public so i stay around ppl all day and every other person seems to be coughing or hacking some shit into the air plus some in these areas i work in be dirty as fuck but i havent caught shit in forever, wat about yall??
Metro Boomin is clearly a fan of the days where one producer and one rapper would team up to record an entire project. This year alone, Metro laced the beats for Gucci Mane's DropTopWop, Nav's Perfect Timing, and Offset & 21 Savage's Without Warning. Today, the prolific Atlanta producer has announced yet another addition to his repertoire - a collaboration album with Detroit rapper Big Sean, called Double Or Nothing. The news was confirmed in an interview with Billboard, who spoke to the duo at their rented house in California.
Metro opens up by explaining why he prefers the single-producer, citing a few key classics as examples. "I was born in ’93,” he says, “and a lot of projects [from that era] had one producer, maybe two. They sounded more cohesive -- better as a whole.” Metro had previously collaborated with Big Sean's I Decided single "Bounce Back," as well as two other tracks from that album. Most recently, they teamed up to deliver "Pull Up N Wreck" with 21 Savage. And while Metro's signature sound has since went on to shape the hip-hop landscape, Double Or Nothing will reportedly find him exploring new styles and genres.
Apparently, the project was made in both Atlanta and Los Angeles, with plenty of spontaneous writing sessions. Basically, Metro would make a beat on the spot, and Sean would follow-suit with lyrics. Sean alleges "on some tracks, the playback will bleed into the microphone, because they recorded without a vocal booth or even a pair of headphones."
While there has yet to be a release date for Double Or Nothing, you never know with these "surprise" albums. It could be dropping next week, or next year for all we know. What do ya'll think about this one? Did you like Metro and Sean's previous work? Sound off below, and stay tuned for more news on this pleasant surprise.
A tool created by Google engineers to automate the writing of machine learning algorithms has outperformed developers in the creation of efficient machine learning systems for some tasks.
The AutoML (automated machine learning) tool was announced earlier this year by Google representatives. Its creation was motivated by the widespread skills shortage associated with coding, particularly for machine learning applications. The Google team built a machine learning system capable of rapidly creating, testing and refining machine learning architectures.
“One way we hope to make AI more accessible is by simplifying the creation of machine learning models called neural networks,” wrote Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, in a blog post.
“Today, designing neural nets is extremely time intensive, and requires an expertise that limits its use to a smaller community of scientists and engineers. That’s why we’ve created an approach called AutoML, showing that it’s possible for neural nets to design neural nets.”
The AutoML approach allows for a “controller neural net” to put forward a suggestion of a basic architecture for a new machine learning algorithm, which can be subsequently trained to perform a highly specialised task. The algorithm’s performance is evaluated and this feedback is used to improve the next attempt.
After repeating these simulations thousands of times, the controller is well-informed about which architectures are likely to perform better at this task. This entire process is automated and takes a matter of hours.
Within just five months, Google has reported that AutoML has begun to generate machine learning algorithms which outperform those written by the developers themselves. An AutoML-generated algorithm proved capable of learning to recognise and categorise images – an extremely complex task – reached a record 82 per cent accuracy.
Even in complex tasks, the AutoML code outperformed code written by developers: in a task in which the system had to mark the location of various objects within an image, the developers’ machine learning software achieved 39 per cent accuracy, while the AutoML software achieved 43 per cent.
Once well-honed enough such that it could be used for practical applications, tools like AutoML could be incorporated into machines of the near future, allowing them to update themselves regularly and even create new programs to solve specific problems.
While machines outperforming humans in highly-skilled jobs remains a fantasy, the success of AutoML demonstrates the slight edge that artificially intelligent systems can have over humans in performing tedious tasks: in this case, the ability of AutoML to rapidly run through thousands of possible architectures would otherwise take months of work for a developer, whose time could be put to better use on more creative tasks.
Out now. Miguel one of the most talented singers of our generation
This topic has been touched on a little bit in the politics thread but it's a topic that affects us all and our pockets when it comes to paying for internet access.
A few days ago the FCC made the decision to repeal net neutrality laws that were put in place by the Obama administration and on December 14th there will be a vote on the official repeal of these laws.
What this means is that ISPs(Comcast, AT&T U-Verse, etc.) will have the ability to regulate what you can or can't see on the internet. They could block certain websites, slow down certain services like Netflix or Hulu, and charge premiums if you want to reach certain online content. An example is that Comcast owns part of Hulu, without net neutrality Comcast can make Netflix go slow as fuck, prompting Comcast customers to subscribe to Hulu instead, which just puts more paper into Comcast's pockets.
Packages like this could soon become a reality
Everybody needs to be aware of this shit and be prepared when this goes into affect. Most people believe this will pass on December 14th.
Fuck it, its 2012 and you don't have a MMA thread in a sports forum? Fuck it, we have a ppv every two weeks at least...
I was at the store the other day looking at board games and thinking of getting some shit I've never played, like Risk.
Is Risk hard? I know the gist of the game but don't know how to play it.
I know a lot of people were all for that viral video of the kid crying talking about bullies. I was suspicious of it because I'm suspicious of all videos of parents recording their children crying and up loading online for views. But the stuff that dropped on his mom has me questioning if that video is even real.
Before you parade your child on social media, sobbing about being bullied, and then have celebrities rally behind you, you might want to clean up your own racist social media posts. That’s exactly what Keaton Jones’ mother, Kimberly Jones, didn’t do—and now her past Facebook posts are coming back to bite her in her racist ass.
Over the last 72 hours, actors, athletes and regular folks on social media have rallied behind Keaton Jones, a Union County, Tenn., middle schooler, after his tear-filled video went viral. They rallied so much that a GoFundMe has raised over $55,000, and he’s received numerous invites to big-time Hollywood movie premieres.
But wait, there’s more.
After internet detectives found Kimberly Jones’ Facebook page, they realized that she may be on the wrong side of history when it comes to her love of the Confederate flag:
After more digging, MMA fighter Joe Schilling posted an Instagram conversation that he had with someone alleging to be Jones:
So, sure, Keaton may be the vicious victim of bullying (and also may have called a few classmates the n-word, which was noted on Kimberly’s Facebook page before she closed it), and his mother is using his pain for her own interests, but it’s ironic that she’s willing to accept money from black athletes and other celebrities that she would probably consider “butt hurt Americans.”
Of course Jones’ Facebook has now been locked down and her privacy settings have been updated.
Now i cant help but wonder if his "bullying" was just kids not wanting to be around him because he was talking that crazy stuff his parents taught him.
SMH, I guess anything passes for research.
Article: Having older brothers increases men's likelihood of being gay
If you're a guy with an older brother, there's an increased chance you're gay.
Scientists have noticed this pattern in previous research, but now they think they have a biological explanation as to why, and it starts long before birth. The results were published in the journal PNAS on Monday.
The researchers say that if their findings can be replicated, we may know at least one of the biological reasons some men are gay.
Many factors may determine someone's sexual orientation, but in this case, researchers noticed a pattern that may be linked to something that happens in the womb. The phenomenon is related to a protein linked to the Y chromosome (which women do not have) that is important to male brain development.
Researchers think it's possible that when a woman gets pregnant with her first boy, this Y-linked protein gets into her bloodstream. The mother's body recognizes the protein as a foreign substance, and her immune system responds, creating antibodies. If enough of these antibodies build up in the woman's body and she gets pregnant with another a boy, they can cross the placental barrier and enter the brain of the second male fetus...
"That may alter the functions in the brain, changing the direction of how the male fetus may later develop their sense of attraction," said study author Anthony Bogaert, a Canadian psychologist and professor in the departments of psychology and community health sciences at Brock University.
Earlier research has shown that the more older brothers a boy has, the more of a chance that boy will be attracted to men. A 2006 study showed that with each brother, the chance that a man will be gay goes up by about a third, but the researchers didn't determine why that was.
I need to know where to stay and what is a good place to eat and where not to go.
seems like i keep ending up in the wrong place in charlotte due to family issues.
and also what radio stations to listen to....more on this later
I messed with bootlegs and recording shit onto cassette tape at the start but this is the first album I ever got from the shops.
What was yours? this shit will show peoples ages.
What's your favorites????
(CNN)Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the very agency tasked with saving and protecting the lives of the most vulnerable, are now under order by the Trump administration to stop using words including "vulnerable" in 2018 budget documents, according to The Washington Post.
In a 90-minute briefing on Thursday, policy analysts at the nation's leading public health institute were presented with the menu of seven banned words, an analyst told the paper. On the list:
For me it's Michelle Beisner of the NFL Network.
shes a freak for sure.
