Check for flying pigs, R webpage has changed it design. Not a lot of difference, but it seems that the changes are foremost under the hood, so expect something new soon.
 
The R website has been refreshed!    

A long last a switch to markdown and pandoc, as a results of a skunk works project by Simon, Hadley and myself.

Blue and black for me, white and gold for my SO:) If I scroll fast then I see it white and gold, but just for a moment :)

Ok, deep learning folks New challenge: is the dress white&gold, or black&blue? I don't believe in artificial intelligence until it can get at least half as confused as us. ;-) #dressgate
It's an interesting example how our vision is not exact.
guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the fuck out

Good article on adjunct instructors.
Teaching college is no longer a middle-class job, and everyone paying tuition should care.

You cannot use what you do not know. Every discipline taught in school has some part which will be rarely used by somebody learning it. But comic is funny anyways :)

"What troubles me is this extraordinary gap between those who create mathematical models (the so-called “quants”) and the decision makers. It is clear that in the past many of the decision makers didn't fully understand those models, nor did they try to understand. I think the attitude was “as long as the models work and we make profit, we’ll be fine” rather than “let's find out what these models are actually doing”... And then, after the crash, those decision makers were blaming the “quants.” How convenient!

Are we going to learn from this lesson? Are we going to reduce this gap? There are many other urgent issues that need to be addressed, but this one is very important, in my opinion."

Šiaip tikslas buvo pareklamuoti duomenis githube. Aš norėčiau visada asmeniškai jų o ne grafikų. Kokio reikia grafiko man aš visada galiu pasidaryt.
