Objective evidence.
When it comes to pesticide residues on our food, there is a USDA testing program that demonstrates year after year that the pesticide residues on both organic and conventional foods are at such low levels that we need not worry about them.

Remember, Ryan's tainted as well

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, an organization that seeks to elect more Democrats to the U.S. House of Representatives, was infiltrated by allegedly Kremlin-linked hackers, going by the pseudonym Guccifer 2.0, earlier this year.

Skullduggery by Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell
 
 
 
Republicans are considering using alternative scoring methods for a version of Sen. Ted Cruz's Consumer Freedom Option in order to proceed with their health care push next week rather than waiting for the Congressional Budget Office's assessment, a Republican Senate aide told Independent Journal Review Thursday morning.

Republicans are considering using alternative scoring methods for a version of Sen. Ted Cruz's Consumer Freedom Option in order to proceed with their health care push next week rather than waiting for the Congressional Budget Office's assessment, a Republican Senate aide told Independent Journal Review Thursday morning. [Somewhere, Kellyanne Conway nods proudly] ADVERTISEMENT The proposal, to get the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to score a version of the Texas Republican's amendment — which would scrap Affordable Care Act regulations for insurers who continue to offer health care plans that comply with the rules—has been floated during negotiations but not agreed to yet, the source said. This is lunacy. Senate Republicans know that the assessment of their bill, when it comes out, will likely fall somewhere between "bad" and "very bad." But instead of allowing the CBO to deliver that news to the American people, and then having the courage to stand by their ideas and defend them on the merits, Mitch McConnell and company just want to ask their old pal Tom Price to make up a score for them. (Imagine trying this bullshit in any other context. "Sir, you can't fly this plane without a pilot's license." "Would you accept my tens of hours playing Star Fox 64 instead?") Call me a conspiracy theorist, but something tells me that a budget analysis proffered by Donald Trump's handpicked Secretary of Health and Human Services might not be objective. Astute observers of the lawmaking process may be wondering how this student would affect McConnell's ability to pass Trumpcare through the budget reconciliation process, a procedure that allows a bill to pass the Senate with 50 votes instead of 60, but only if it relates to spending or revenue and doesn't contain provisions "extraneous" to the budget. How could the Republicans know if they are following the reconciliation rules without a CBO score, you ask? Easy! They're going to ask Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi—who is, of course, a Republican—to declare that their fake score complies.___

In addition to segregation as such, economic segregation possibly guarantees the private academies actually cause academic performance to decline because the demographics are at a tipping point in the public school. This is an example of a school system where full integration in a single institution would be one of the only reasonable solutions.

According to data from the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia, demographics for Prince Edward County show that in 2015, white residents comprised 64 percent of the County’s approximately 23,000 residents, while black residents comprised only 32 percent. However, in the 2013-14 school year, the most recent year with available data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the County’s public schools enrolled 2,282 students, 37 percent of whom were white and 56 percent of whom were black.

Nice analysis of arguments against Food Evolution, the documentary that looks at farming in situations where farmers' backs are against the wall. This is not about your cornflakes or your soybean enhanced butter. This is about how the farming sector will survive and help humanity. If you post opposition, please make sure it is from someone qualified. Not an ecologist please. Only scientists who work on breeding plants and who understand genetics.

Bullshit. The Hill is buying into an assumption of equivalence that shouldn't exist. The fact is schools have always had adequate access to widely used evaluations. They just didn't always use them effectively.

But the good thing about the way we used to do it is that there were multiple metrics rather than one and they were normed more rigorously. Not saying there aren't more available, just saying the current system has eliminated perhaps the soundest part of the old system, replacing it with reliance on a single contractor. When was this ever a good idea?

"It was called the “No Climate Tax” pledge, drafted by a new group called Americans for Prosperity that was funded by the Koch brothers.

Edit - What do people with interest in history think about the law now formalizing the process for handling objections to education materials? What about the objections themselves?

I told him the story likely was a distortion of a lesson where students each took a country to study in depth and later shared what they learned. So the student was likely only one out of twenty-five.

Over 150 of the Best Machine Learning, NLP, and Python Tutorials I’ve Found

While machine learning has a rich history dating back to 1959, the field is evolving at an unprecedented rate. In a recent article, I discussed why the broader artificial intelligence field is booming and likely will for some time to come. Those interested in learning ML may find it daunting to get started. As I prepare to start my Ph.D. program in the Fall, I’ve been scouring the web for good resources on all aspects of machine learning and NLP. Typically, I’ll find an interesting tutorial or video, and that leads to three or four more tutorials or videos, and before I know it, I have 20 tabs of new material I need to go through. (On a side note, Tab Bundler has been helpful to stay organized.)

Legionella in Flint water supply. Curious.

On the latest episode of the science show This Week in Microbiology, Michele brings us up to date on the 2014 and 2015 outbreaks of Legionnaire's disease in Flint, Michigan. Her group, along with others, sampled the water supply in Flint homes and found Legionella in about 12 percent of them. Michele explains what the findings mean for the past and the future. Next, Elio talks about a Q fever story. That flu-like disease is caused by Coxiella burneti, an intracellular bacterium that appears to have once acquired many genes from other organisms, then shed them as it became an intracellular resident. The genes that remain appear to boost Coxiella's phyisiology. If you are unsure about this organism, go back a few episodes of TWiM and listen to Robert Heinzen talk about it - and how he got the bacteria to grow in culture without a eukaryotic host!___Legionella in Flint water supply.
