Choosing the most-efficiently-expressed codon from a set of synonyms can improve protein expression rate, but sometimes the stability of the protein depends on a less-efficient expression (for example, one that takes longer, which can sometimes affect the way in which the protein folds).

>Quite some CPUs have speculation-related misfeatures which are in fact vulnerabilities causing data leaks in various forms even across privilege domains.
>The kernel provides mitigation for such vulnerabilities in various forms. Some of these mitigations are compile-time configurable and some can be supplied on the kernel command line.
>There is also a class of mitigations which are very expensive, but they can be restricted to a certain set of processes or tasks in controlled environments. The mechanism to control these mitigations is via prctl(2).

The term autopoiesis refers to a system capable of reproducing and maintaining itself by creating its own parts and eventually further components.

Chūnibyō (中二病) is a Japanese colloquial term typically used to describe early teens who had grandiose delusions, who desperately wants to stand out they convinced themselves with hidden knowledge or secret powers. It translates to "second year disease (in Japanese lower secondary school)"

立秋, りっしゅう, the first day of Autumn. "The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms. [りっしゅう] is the 13th solar term. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around August 7 and ends around August 23." (Wikipedia, abridged)

Seems like Hawkins has been saying the same thing for 15 years and without much to show.
The main trick here is thresholding in HSV space.
Author points at at the end that he still needed to tweak parameters depending on the set of notes he's dealing with. I guess coming up with suitable defaults based on how the notes look might be something that would add value to commercial implementations of this such as Office Lens.

I should be using the Python "embeddable package" for Windows, which is smaller than the normal one apparently.
"Ergodicity means that the ensemble average is the same as the time average.". Very nice explanation though. (HN)

"In the philosophy of Aristotle, the actualization of the potential form or function of a substance."
This is part of the rules for /r/programmingcirclejerk, and I can say that it definitely had the (presumably) desired effect.
"A tulpa is an autonomous entity existing within the brain of a “host”. They are distinct from the host in that they possess their own personality, opinions, and actions, which are independent of the host’s, and are conscious entities in that they possess awareness of themselves and the world. A fully-formed tulpa is, or highly resembles to an indistinguishable point, an actual other sentient, sapient being coinhabiting with the host consciousness."
I'm using it to find duplicates with pmd-bin-6.32.0/bin/run.sh cpd --minimum-tokens 100 --language python --files .
The key part of this (at least according to mikel evins) is that you can stop at any point (and in particular at a stack trace), inspect and modify live state including code *and then resume*. Few nonscheme things can do this.
Activating an application cycles through its windows, so this script finds the most recent window by looking at the stack order of the root window. Didn't know this was possible.
A way of eating taught to kids to encourage balanced eating in which you eat a portion of each of mains, carbs, vegetables in sequence, then repeat. EG: omlette, rice, salad.

Provides a definition of exploitability in terms of finite state machines: when the real state of the system can not be mapped to any state of the intended system (or an intermediate state when transitioning between any two intended states). Interesting notion of programming as writing an emulator for the IFSM.
Very entertaining. "Yet another classic - the surveyor recommended these people have an injection damp proof course installed. Idiot!"

Really interesting take, via HN, of the difference between statistics and data science -- the former is focused on explaining the parameters, the later is focused on predicting the future. "The big one that made no sense to me the first time I encountered it back in 2017 is that data scientists split their data into “training data,” “validation data,” and “testing data.”"
virt-v2v mysteriously disappeared from libvirt-tools recently. This page was helpful -- once I realised that I needed to find the correct snapshot vmdk for the conversion.
"A paper published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that dogs’ faces are structured for complex expression in a way that wolves’ aren’t, thanks to a special pair of muscles framing their eyes. These muscles are responsible for that “adopt me” look that dogs can pull by raising their inner eyebrows. It’s the first biological evidence scientists have found that domesticated dogs might have evolved a specialized ability used expressly to communicate better with humans." This is quite terrifying.

Brains fold like paper folds. More surface area = more folding. Thicker cortex = less folding. Gyri from in densely-interconnected regions. Sulci form between less-well-connected regions.
