Oxfam America146,669This week, Super Bowl winner +Anquan Boldin and fellow NFL superstars Larry Fitzgerald and Roddy White are in Senegal with Oxfam. They're visiting Oxfam programs in action and working side-by-side with Senegalese communities on projects to increase their income and provide for their families.  Anquan, Larry and Roddy want to meet you, their fans, and tell you about the amazing people they’ve met and the important work they’re doing with Oxfam to help people facing extreme poverty. These players have been pitching in with Oxfam since 2011, and this is Anquan and Larry’s second trip to Africa with Oxfam, following their visit to Ethiopia last spring. This trip is just one of the many ways they contribute to communities off the football field, and we hope you’ll join us to hear how you, too, can help make a difference.

NASA2,410,367Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008329

Spent the day pair coding with Hannah. We spent most of today refactoring and trying to figure out the best way to convert the +Sage Mathematical Software System  Extensive Form Game class we've been working on with the gambit class. We also tested out the graphics that Hannah wrote with a large 3 player Rock Paper Scissors game (that's the plot - it's a big picture: zoom in!) :)

(Auraya kept us company and was relatively helpful.)

EDIT: Here is an updated version of that big plot (with colors for players and better line between information sets: https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/2131546/8505022/16b9dcf8-21d4-11e5-9ea6-85257af6d192.png).

+James Campbell and I are revisiting some work we started last Summer. It involves the calculation of the expected wait in tandem queue. I wrote a blog post about that here http://vknight.org/unpeudemath/code/2014/09/19/the-expected-waiting-time-in-a-tandem-queue-with-blocking-using-sage/

and also put together these funky gifs. James is working on recreating them with seaborn for much prettyness.

After some great work by +James Campbell we just pushed to the +Sage Mathematical Software System trac server, some code that allows you to test if a game is degenerate. It's basically an implementation of what we wrote here: http://vknight.org/unpeudemath/code/2015/06/25/on_testing_degeneracy_of_games/

+James Campbell and I are implementing a test for degenerate games in +Sage Mathematical Software System. We needed to convince ourselves that the definition of a degenerate game (which implies a search over continuous strategies) could be written as a search over discrete objects (the supports of these strategies).

We've written that up as a blog post here: http://vknight.org/unpeudemath/code/2015/06/25/on_testing_degeneracy_of_games/

It includes some references about degenerate games etc...

"I have been startled both by the robustness and activity of the development of Jupyter, and the relatively little discussion from the R community. [...] There are a few commercial cloud services that host Jupyter notebooks, and the one I like right now is SageMathCloud. The Sage Math project has come a long way on its goals of developing open-source math and collaboration tools, and I see a host of fascinating features on this app, such as course management tools for classroom use, collaborative editing and live video chat alongside a project & file system for managing Jupyter notebooks and Sage Math worksheets, and the ability to open multiple notebooks in different tabs.

"I have been startled both by the robustness and activity of the development of Jupyter, and the relatively little discussion from the R community. [...] There are a few commercial cloud services that host Jupyter notebooks, and the one I like right now is SageMathCloud. The Sage Math project has come a long way on its goals of developing open-source math and collaboration tools, and I see a host of fascinating features on this app, such as course management tools for classroom use, collaborative editing and live video chat alongside a project & file system for managing Jupyter notebooks and Sage Math worksheets, and the ability to open multiple notebooks in different tabs.

After a great pull request by +Marc Harper we're now up to 66 strategies :D

+Karol Langner's Meta Hunter is still winning :)

We're working on building a nice list/description of the strategies that have been implemented and some that have not. You can see those from Axelrod's first tournament here: http://axelrod.readthedocs.org/en/latest/overview_of_strategies.html#axelrod-s-first-tournament

Really fun morning helping out with the great day that +Paul Harper​ organised for a local high school. It involved them building an engine at the school of engineering, doing some linear programming and cryptography at the school of Mathematics and finally playing with snot at a workshop that my wife +Zoë Prytherch​ ran.

+Geraint Palmer​ really enjoyed getting to wear a lab coat :)

- +James Campbell who worked with me last Summer and will be continuing his work contributing to +Sage Mathematical Software System.
- Hannah who just finished her first year and will also be (hopefully!) contributing to Sage :)

Predicting funny

Just finished off a blog post describing the application of natural language processing to the +Edinburgh Festival Fringe jokes. I don't quite have enough data (60 jokes) and I just use the out of the box classifier but this was still fun.

You can find the ipython notebook:

- On github: https://github.com/drvinceknight/EdinburghFringeJokes/blob/master/nlp-of-jokes.ipynb
- +The SageMathCloud: https://cloud.sagemath.com/#projects/a4f27edc-8528-4c7f-adf7-b6c790e29349/files/nlp-of-jokes.html

TL;DR I build a classifier that is slightly better than flipping a coin (which when it comes to funny and the lack of data I have is probably not bad) but the simplicity of the python code used to do this is really cool...

- meeting and (when I got a chance) working with +Owen Campbell​​
- the 5k fun run
- working with some great people to put the conference together.

If you can think of any others or indeed if you think I'm missing out an important category please let me know (at the moment it's targeted at +Sage Mathematical Software System and Python). PRs would be great.

Tobenna has plans to build a bunch of great and needed stuff in +Sage Mathematical Software System. You can read his proposal here: http://cgi.csc.liv.ac.uk/~ptigwe/sage-gsoc.pdf

Tobenna will be adding to the awesome work that +James Campbell did last Summer. James (and two other first years at Cardiff) will be working on more Game Theory stuff as well this Summer which means there should be a bunch of more awesome #gametheory stuff in Sage.
