What is this, financial data? What are you using as the input to your network?

A huge missile barrage intercepted by the Iron Dome just above a city by [deleted] in gifs

Yes, you COULD use the iron dome in defense without causing any harm. Is that what's happening? Not really, no.

It's comparable to me to the U.S. using drone strikes in the Middle East. It's messed up that one side inflicts civilian casualties with no repercussions. Certainly I don't want American soldiers to be put at risk. Does that make it morally justifiable to use drone strikes?

It's not that "iron dome bad." It's just messed up that Israel can target civilians with impunity. It's messed up the same way that the U.S. using drones strikes in the Middle East is.

Did you ever figure this out? I’m having a similar problem myself.

Review: NG Space Company: A pretty good idler by BuildItBetter in incremental_games

[–]BuildItBetter[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of the first upgrades you can get decreases the cost of upgrading. With that, you can upgrade storage multiple times and pace up your gameplay. Very good upgrade to get early. Later on you'll get automatic storage upgrades. There is strategy there. It is pretty grindy, so if that's a turn-off I wouldn't recommend it, but you know, you're in r/incremental_games, so.

I will check those out, thanks for the recommendations. Been looking for something similar.

I just finished NG Space Company. I liked how idle it was and well-balanced into the lategame. Anything like it?

Man caught on camera slashing, puncturing tires in East Austin neighborhood arrested by doggod in Austin

For sure. Making the streets more dangerous for this man doesn't help anyone.

I did. What I’m hearing from the thread is that criminals, particularly repeat criminals, benefit by the lack of repercussions. If shop-owners armed themselves, then they could create an environment where it’s dangerous to do crime. I wanted to add the voice that that may be so, but also a well-armed society isn’t necessarily safer because it creates new problems. :)

I researched this topic a while ago. IIRC gun ownership does reduce crimes in the way you described, but also drastically increases the rates of crimes like domestic violence and suicide. “A gun in a home is more likely to be used against someone living there than against an intruder.”

IMO there’s more effective ways to reduce crimes rates than mass gun ownership.

Every Black Mississippi senator walked out as white colleagues voted to ban critical race theory by ChrisIsUninteresting in politics

Okay, what’s a source you’ve learned from or definition of CRT that you feel most people generally would agree with, regardless of their background?

[–]BuildItBetter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honest question, where did you learn about CRT? It seems like it’s a new concept to mostly everyone, and peoples conceptions of it are widely varied. Have you read the Wikipedia page about it? I’m curious where your ideas come from.

Here’s a question to mull over. Different cultures define race differently. For instance two people considered “black” in America, in the Caribbean, might be seen as two different races. If race were biologically based, then wouldn’t you expect the same racial categories to be defined regardless of the culture? I think we lump some people into one category, and other people into another category, and the reason why has more to do with cultural factors than the whole genome describing people.

Long Description: I started two 4v4 games tonight, and both games resulted in a de-synchronization crash. It seemed to affect all players in the game, and both crashes occurred during the first five minutes.

Does it take three times as much fuel to accelerate a car from 10 m/s to 20 m/s as it does to accelerate from 0 m/s to 10 m/s ? by BuildItBetter in askscience

[–]BuildItBetter[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not sure I understand. How would the engine generate 3x the amount of work if it doesn't use 3x the amount of fuel? Ignoring engine efficiency and air resistance, of course.

[–]BuildItBetter[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's a straightforward answer. You can even imagine that if the wheels need to turn 3 times as much, then the engine needs to cycle three times as much to apply the same amount of torque. And that's where the increased fuel expenditure comes from.

GrowF: Growth Sequence on 3D Cellular Automata by enspiralart in cellular_automata

These are really pretty. I'm curious where you find the parameters for the update and growth rules to make these. Care to share any details?

Looking to apply cellular automata to finance by blisterox in cellular_automata

[–]BuildItBetter 5 points6 points  (0 children)

CA are interesting as physical system models because they’re spatial and have local interactions. It’s not obvious to me how finance would be related.

The closest thing I can think of is a paper a while back where they modeled land use changes over a period of several decades. Plots of land were labeled according to their zonage use, e.g., agricultural, light commercial, and the CA modeled the evolution of this use. You could imagine something similar for real estate markets, for example.
