Six examples of the success of evidence based medicine.

"There is a tale, told by many an alternative medicine proponent, that scientific (read: real) medicine is close minded, old-fashioned and doesn’t adapt to change. They tell us they’re the cutting edge, though in actuality not once has any alternative practice change when proven ineffective or dangerous.

"But real medicine, being a scientific field, adapts to new information. When something works we embrace it. When something doesn’t – we toss it away."___Six examples of the success of evidence based medicine.

Limited edition of a new +Brandon Sanderson SF detective novella available.

Limited edition of new novella now up for preorder

It’s time to talk novellas. I commonly do one or two of these a year (this year, I did Mistborn:Secret History and the Stormlight novella Edgedancer, coming out in November in Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection). These shorts are ways for me to explore cool or intriguing ideas in a briefer form, so that my attention isn’t drawn too far away from my main projects.

For next year, I only have one novella scheduled right now: a science fiction detective thriller called Snapshot. I wrote it during my trip to Dubai this year, and I’m quite pleased with it. I think you’ll all enjoy it quite a bit.

Normally when it comes to one of my novellas, I just release it and then start promotion. With this one, however, some of my professional colleagues (including the bookseller who long ago organized my first real signing) are starting a specialty press, and so we wanted to announce this one early to give a little momentum to their company. Therefore, Snapshot is up for preorder at Vault Books right now. (Exciting!) It releases February 2017.

I do want to warn you, however, that their edition is the expensive, leatherbound collector’s edition we sometimes do for these books. If the price tag makes your eyes bulge, realize that there will be a simultaneous cheap ebook (which will also be included for everyone who buys the limited edition), and then later in 2017 we will have a non-limited-edition hardcover on my webstore along the lines of the Shadows for Silence/Perfect State double. (We might publish Snapshot alongside Dreamer, the horror story I did for a Charlaine Harris anthology.)

As always, thanks for reading!

Brandon

Actually, they do believe that Democrats are the ones who raised the trans bathroom issue. The claim that they were perfectly happy to live and let live (otherwise known as "if you pass well enough, we won't hurt you") and then Democrats began forcing the issue so they had to respond.

I've been told that multiple times. By people who haven't a clue what it's like to live in fear of being beaten up for not looking "right".

They make the same argument about doing business with gays. "It wasn't an issue until people tried to start forcing us. We have no problems with gays. Just don't flaunt it and make us see it". It's don't ask don't tell, stay in the closet, don't speak out. But with their privilege they see it as "don't be uppity".

Dinner at a hotel bar. Three patrons discussing guns, Trump, and Cruz. I agreed with absolutely everything they were saying. But I couldn't stand listening to the conversation. I am so burnt out. And then I realized, my God, what's this like for the bartender? So I asked her. She said it was pretty bad, but not as bad as the other week when people were arguing about Black Lives Matter and police shootings. Not a good year to be a bartender.

Something interesting that we can finally talk about: the AIs are controlling their own datacenters, and it knocks about 15% off our power usage. More specifically, we designed a deep learning system to control things like cooling fans, windows, and other things related to power and cooling, with the objective of minimizing power needs. It turned out that this sort of system reliably outperformed manual control by a lot - enough that we've gradually transitioned datacenters to fully automatic operation.

This is one of those examples of how machine learning can be really useful; at any given instant, its decisions may be roughly as good as a human's would be, but it can make those decisions every few milliseconds and continually adjust things in a way a person couldn't.

The Vikings in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland had slaves, or thralls. These thralls probably held multiple roles, serving their masters in many ways in Viking society a thousand years ago. And some of them followed their masters into the grave.

The most important speech of her life...and parts were clearly plagiarized? Really?

It's not so much the plagiarism, as the complete inability to manage an organization. Has nobody in this campaign even considered having someone check stuff before it's released? Trump' is clearly a business managed by one person, with no authority delegated anywhere. A cult of personality.

Just when you think it can't get more bizarre...the clowns keep climbing out of the Trump train.
