Just like Snapchat except wordier, permanent and evolving. So I guess you could say not like Snapchat at all then. Good work Engadget. 😒

Halfway there on the stairs. Should have an easy set to do this weekend before tackling the harder ones at the top. Might have to take down part of a wall to completely finish.

First step fully installed and already a lot safer than what was there before

Literally step 1 in our staircase refurb. This is only a test piece to make sure my timber fits and get a sense of what roundover to do. I'm changing the profile of the original steps slightly, mostly because the boards I've got are about 3mm narrower than the originals.

It also turns out the risers are made of wood in a width that is not off the shelf anymore.

Adjusting the height slider for 1-swipe region turns the word height into width

Is the face of gambling being changed by big data?

This post by +Bohdan Pavlyshenko shows that with just one days worth of data he was able to predict the winner, and having identified some flaws with his initial algorithm, has refinements that would have shown the top few places.

The US election was also incredibly accurately predicted by Nate Silver. In fact, using sentiment analysis and some well refined algorithms there probably aren't many voted for events that couldn't be predicted a day in advance unless the result is really to choose to call, or as in Eurovision there are confounded, such as long standing political feuds, that could cause people to vote against their true opinion.

Watch right to the end

A fundamental misunderstanding of probabilities in this article. The odds of having a baby are not the 1 in 365 as you don't randomly conceive. If you are consciously trying for a baby at the end of March your odds probably go down to around 1 in 50ish. Knowing that your second baby is due around the same time is going to make it more likely that it actually comes on Christmas day. If it's ready to come very late Christmas eve you could delay of to Christmas day.

Given that the real odds would come out much nearer 1 in 2,400; still unlikely but not anywhere near the 1 in 133,225 chance the bookmaker in the article says.
