This is a collection of 10 great GitHub repositories focusing on IPython, TensorFlow, Theano and related topics, for data scientists. The last one is not on GitHub.

Will read later. My bedtime.
Fascinating new perspectives on some fundamental principles in biology. The article itself is a great pop science read, but it also has links to relevant research papers.

"This planet can provide for Human Need, but not for Human Greed!"

~ Mahatma Gandhi. 

Ironic how almost everybody I am following seems to say no 'alternative' news from Trump, and yet everybody, everybody including me at times, seems to post 'alternative' news from Trump.

I hate The Herald, but perhaps there's some truth to what it says. That Obama also halted visa's.

"But, once again, the same seven countries were singled out by President Barack Obama's administration for special security precautions. The choice was his, not Trump's, and no one in the media complained:"

Also, in 2013, http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/al-qaeda-kentucky-us-dozens-terrorists-country-refugees/story?id=20931131

I guess the difference is what is going on in Iraq and Syria now, versus then.

A new algorithm uses the "surprisingly popular" outlier to improve the accuracy of "the wisdom of crowds".

"The new method is simple. For a given question, people are asked two things: What they think the right answer is, and what they think popular opinion will be. The variation between the two aggregate responses indicates the correct answer."

"The researchers found that the 'surprisingly popular' algorithm reduced errors by 21.3 percent compared to simple majority votes, and by 24.2 percent compared to basic confidence-weighted votes (where people express how confident they are in their answers). And it reduced errors by 22.2 percent compared to another kind of confidence-weighted votes, those taking the answers with the highest average confidence levels."
