1. ## What Things Should I Consider For Me To Become A Successful Data Scientist?

Sorry for late reply, thaqnks to spammer saw now that VMdevil pointed me out ðŸ™‚ The one thing no1 said is learnning by doing is best. So I suggest do some competitions on kaggle (= search kaggle ;-)), you might even get rich there ðŸ™‚ Got to top 20 once in a competition giving 100k as first price....but usual prices are more in order of 5k or so. And they also have tutorials and shared code etc.
2. ## Moore's Law & Planned Obsolescence: Impact on Quality Standards

Are they related? Completely different causes. Moore: research, Planned Ob.: sell more,business
3. ## Trump Acknowledges UFOs, Then Threatens Them With Military Action

I struggle to believe "It could be 0% excluding Earth". Simply because life exists here, so there is a non-zero probability for life. And the visible(!) universe is sooo huge, that also the tiniest probabilities are repeated.
4. ## Fun math thing: how big will the rolled madrass be?

Not sure how to fix it, did not find usefull stuff in adminCP, but am no guru at this
5. ## Fun math thing: how big will the rolled madrass be?

\alpha $\frac{1}{2}$
6. ## Fun math thing: how big will the rolled madrass be?

Ok you win, long time no geometry I guess. Area of circle is pi r^2 not 2pi r^2... So I also get: 22.573305919324014
7. ## Fun math thing: how big will the rolled madrass be?

Mine is: Get area of side of madrass then find radius of circle with same area. so 2*200=r^2*2pi -->r=(200/pi)^(0.5) ---> >>> np.sqrt(200/3.14) #7.9808688446762215 But asked ofor diameter so: >>> np.sqrt(200/3.14)*2 15.961737689352443
8. ## Fun math thing: how big will the rolled madrass be?

This asks for it: YOu show me yours I show you mine :D:D:D:D
9. ## Fun math thing: how big will the rolled madrass be?

Of course assuming no air in the rolled layers
10. ## Fun math thing: how big will the rolled madrass be?

So when planning for a camping trip, I ended up wondering how one calculates the diameter of a rolled camping madrass will be when you know the length,height (and width) of the flattened madrass. What I find fun is that I had it in the back of my back a few days, never actually sat down to analyze, till I found the solution. Of course waaaay easier (and even straight forward once one properly thinks about it) than I ever thought at first ðŸ™‚ Not spoiling you the fun, but for dimension 2*200*80 answer is 15.96
11. ## Trump Really Blew It This Time!

LOL, I guess there is alot to say against Biden,like any other canditate. But that you picked the one thing everyone agrees Trump does/did "better" as an argument against Biden is a bit funny....
12. ## Is The Designation "positive" And "negative" In Electricity Arbitrary?

Stopped here, because you already make strange assumptions. I can say inhaling is minus because it removes air from my surrondings. Why is chest your frame of reference and not surrounding air?

Wrt to "live in fear". There is fear and fear. 1) Be scared of any social interaction, never leave house and die lonely in anxiety. 2) Be scared of infecting someone else and become a killer of them or their grandparents just like the anti-vaxxers. You here talking about fear of type 1), which I do agree is bad for all reasons you linked. Type 2) -fear (I guess you can call it "fear"), means just to be a caring human being. It does not limit me in anyway other than I want to. I mean aren't you vaccinating yourself for same reason?

Argument here is a bit far fetched, because there might be a pop-growth of 9 million. But Covid kills people with other conditions, but also mainly older people. Of these 9 millions some are immigrants, rest are kids... And THOTH101 By now it should be clear even to deniers that this is bullshit. Flu, according to WHO (but just find your own source) kills between 290k and 650k people per year. They actually say flu-related causes, so just like covid, it kills mainly older people or with other causes. Covid already killed 100k more and the year is not even over...
15. ## The Coronavirus 5G Connection And Coverup

I do not want to waste my time about the 5G -corona BS, because there is no way any argument of mine would sway your belief... But I reply to these, since you all got curious. The first post was from a spammer who I banned, the second was a reply to the spammer from a member, so no more relevant and I hid the post. So no big conspiracy here :-), removing posts for mind-control and such :D
16. ## Coronavirus Is Fake News

Ok was waiting for this graph to be updated, now it is with data till 29.3. It is just the number of weekly deaths independent of cause in Switzerland (from the governamental statistcs office). https://www.bfs.admin.ch/bfs/en/home/statistics/health/state-health/mortality-causes-death.html This shows the dark numbbers: according to this link:https://interactif.tdg.ch/2020/covid-19-carte-suisse/ there were 216 deaths attributed to corona that week (23.-29. March) Taking csv from first link one has: Ending Week Age upperB extrapol lowerB 29.03.2020
17. ## Coronavirus Is Fake News

Ok, I misread you. I read your post as "epidemics (note the s) are to blame on the Chinese", while you make it clear that you mean this specific one now. And as far as I know, it is originating from there. So yeah, corona can be blamed on the chinese as far as we know. They tried to cover it up etc., but when it got too big (still inside Wuhan) they went public. That is a bit like Trump :-): at first there was no pandemic, then all under control, then "Ialways said there is a pandemic".
18. ## Coronavirus Is Fake News

Ocean, this is kinda wrong to blame on chinese, it could have happened anywhere and anytime. Let me explain by copy-pasting a reply of a friend of mine to a fb-petition asking to ban live animal markets in China: Zoonotic (from Greek: Î¶á¿·Î¿Î½ zoon "animal" and Î½ÏŒÏƒÎ¿Ï‚ nosos "sickness") transmission can occur in any context in which there is companionistic (pets), economic (farming, etc.), predatory (hunting, butchering or consuming wild game) or research contact with or consumption of non-human animals, animal products, or animal derivatives. ... So this petition is missing a few FYI. I mean 7

20. ## Coronavirus Is Fake News

I see, you had found that info ages before me in post #49. But the article compares to the average of 4 years, not only 1. And so I do not believe it statistically insignificant. Given now you have corona and before not, flu you have every year. So there only take away for me is that now there is crona and the nuber of deaths is 6-10 times higher than the average and more than the double of reported corona-deaths. The cause of this additional does not really matter.
21. ## Coronavirus Is Fake News

3k of 150k is 2% of total deaths and as beginning of my last post says the 3k is under-estimated But if we say 2k of these 3k would have died anyway then you still get 0.65%. So sorry, it is not insignificant
22. ## Coronavirus Is Fake News

A new analisys, way simpler, does not rely on amount of tests (or on testing at all) and waaaay scarier results. Although I admit it should be done properly with all available data, not just some cities where they make these data available and not such a short time-range. https://www.corriere.it/politica/20_marzo_26/the-real-death-toll-for-covid-19-is-at-least-4-times-the-official-numbers-b5af0edc-6eeb-11ea-925b-a0c3cdbe1130.shtml Idea is very simple, take average number of people dying in past years per given day (in the linked article they take the average from 2015). Compare it to the numb
23. ## Coronavirus Is Fake News

Notice I said people are saying "flu kills XXX per year", not that there never was a flu which did it. The spanish flu was also a pandemic, not you normal winter flu. So in this case my argument still holds: the normal seasonal flu never kills 800 in a day. Speaking of the Spanish flu, it was the second strain a mutation of the first which was the deadliest (altough the hardcore strain survived and spread thanks to WW1, usually natural selection prefers a mild strain cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu#Deadly_second_wave). A such mutation could still happen, viruses mutate the whole

Ok, I do not know of the sources and hence reliability of these data, but here it is 1 in 4 under 50: https://www.statista.com/statistics/1103023/coronavirus-cases-distribution-by-age-group-italy/

How did these stats change now that italy is at 5.4k?
