Raspberry Pi Learns how to Control a Combustion Engine - http://hackaday.com/2015...
For his PhD at the University of Michigan, [Adam] designed a Raspberry Pi-based system that controls an HCCI engine, a type of engine which combines the merits of both diesel and gasoline engines. These engines exhibit near-chaotic behavior and are very challenging to model, so he developed a machine learning algorithm on a Raspberry Pi that adaptively learns how to control the engine. [Adam]’s algorithm needs real-time readings of cylinder pressures and the crankshaft angle to run. To measure this data on a Raspberry Pi, [Adam] designed a daughterboard that takes readings from pressure sensors in each cylinder and measures …read more - Johnn Luevanos

"Racism no longer exists now that all of humanity has banded together to speak English, vote democratically, adhere to 20th-century American social standards, and battle alien intruders in a thinly veiled metaphor for anti-immigration sentiment." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"There are Core people and there are Rim people. Core people wear silver, gender-neutral clothing and love fascism and artificial light. Rim people wear floor-length WWII-era trench coats and love modified libertarianism. These are the only two kinds of people. Plus there’s one ocean planet full of mermaids." - Andrew C (✔)

30 babies under isolation as measles outbreak hits Bay Area - LA Times
"Thirty babies have been placed under home isolation in Alameda County after possible exposure to measles linked to a holiday outbreak at Disneyland last month. Officials with the Alameda County Public Health Department asked the parents of the infants to keep their children at home to avoid further exposure to the contagious illness, department spokeswoman Sherri Willis said. The babies are not infected, Willis said, but had some contact or connection to the measles patients in Alameda County." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

NYC is freaking out about this weather--I'll likely be off work most of today and tomorrow. As a former Minnesotan, I say "bah."
Heck, even my first 18 years in NY I only had one snow day ever... - Lily
Stephen? Meg? Are you all closing early today? - Lily
Welp, closing at 1pm and closed tomorrow. - Lily
as a former New Englander who can deal with snow (but doesn't like it) who moved to the south, snow and ice *do* scare me now - because there is no infrastructure to deal with it down here. Infrastructure is better in NYC, but still not up to MN standards. Still: I bet you'll enjoy!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I keep hoping there will be pretty snow to watch at http://www.nbcnews.com/watch... eventually. I miss snow. Except when we have it and then I don't miss it all because I'm in the south and it's a PITA. :) - ellbeecee
What's funny is that they didn't use to close stuff like this (like you said, Lily). It started after Bloomberg fucked up the big storm in 2010. - Meg VMeg from Android
No word on whether we're closing early.I'd be surprised if we do. I'm betting on a snow day tomorrow though. Lily, do you think having a notably larger percentage of commuters having to rely on mass transit here is why we're more likely to have snow days than you might have seen in MN? I honestly don't know, but I can assume that at the very least, the commuter bus schedule must get really screwed up when it snows like this. I don't know how often trains get delayed or stalled, too, because of snow and ice. - Stephen Francoeur
I think it makes more sense for us mostly because we have 6 of our 9 campuses in New Jersey, and several faculty/staff commute between several, and students could be coming from anywhere since we're 90% non-residential. Right now the MTA looks more or less okay--but it's definitely the buses and LIRR/MetroNorth that are going to have worse trouble, I imagine... - Lily

We'd be happy to have your snow (in the Sierra Nevadas, which are woefully short), but admittedly not so happy about the temps--or if we got sustained snowfall hereabouts, with I'm guessing zero snow-removal equipment. Hope it works out OK there. And that we finally get some precipitation here. - Walt Crawford
As Stephanie said, I have learned to be scared of driving in insignificant snow fall here -- both because no one here knows how to drive in it, and because the county has 6 snow plows. In these parts, two inches of snowfall becomes crippling ice very quickly! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
That said, blizzards are blizzards. Its not just snow, but the wind blowing the snow around, making zero visibility on the ground. 3' of snow might be meh, but with blizzard, very intense! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I was living in New Haven during the blizzard of '96, and I remember hearing a report on NPR from NYC (where they'd gotten at least as much snow as we had) about how, in a city that densely built-up, there basically isn't anyplace to PUT the snow once you've plowed it off the streets, so they were having to truck it to ... somewhere. (Probably New Jersey, I don't know.) I vividly recall... more... - Catherine Pellegrino
I was here in NYC in 1996 for that blizzard. It was awesome. I went to work the next day and walked up the middle of Fifth Avenue (in the 20s), where there was no traffic but plenty of people on cross country skis. It's true that there is no place to push all the plowed snow, so they end up loading it into dump trucks and dumping it in into the Hudson (or maybe they used to do that before they realized what an environmental disaster it was). - Stephen Francoeur
I was in Poughkeepsie during that blizzard. Pretty much every street in town was down to one lane because of the no place to put the snow problem. The course catalog for college the next year used a photo of one of the benches on campus--or rather the inch or two of it that was above the snow. - laura x
Got word that we're closing at 4 pm here. Snow day called for my younger son's elementary school (sure there will be a citywide announcement momentarily about all NYC public schools). - Stephen Francoeur
The '96 blizzard WAS the one snow day I had!! Except I was in first grade, so it totally didn't count for anything. And I was in public school, so you know that's big deal s#*&. - Lily
The 2006 storm was actually bigger than the 1996 one. I found this fun page on NYC winter storm history on the nyc.gov site just now and thought you'd get a kick out of it: http://www.nyc.gov/html... - Stephen Francoeur
1996: "On Jan. 8, New York City public and parochial schools were ordered closed, several Broadway shows canceled performances, and the New York Stock Exchange had a short day." Heeheehee... - Lily

 It’s A Small World After All: Disneyland’s Measles Outbreak Spreads Quickly  
In less than two weeks, the number of cases linked to an outbreak of measles that originated at a Disneyland theme park has topped 70. People have gotten sick in California, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, and Mexico. Health officials are urging unvaccinated people to stay away from Disneyland, and some schools in California are attempting to stem the spread of the disease by sending kids home if they haven’t had their recommended shots. More than 30 babies in Northern California have been placed in isolation after possibly being exposed.

"It's another bait-and-switch: "We had been paying you for your work for years, under these terms. But now we have altered the agreement. Pray we do not alter it further." This sounds like Google using the same strategy they used with Google Plus: instead of creating a new service and letting it compete on its own merits, they're going to artificially prop it up by giving people no choice but to sign up for it. Except in this case the people being strong-armed are the copyright holders instead of the end users. (So far, that is! Wait for it.)" - Andrew C (✔)

What ONE Billy Wilder film would you tell people who have never seen a Billy Wilder film that they should watch? I can’t choose.
"The Apartment" - Cult Hero
"Sunset Boulevard" - Big Joe Silence
Double Indemnity, Witness for the Prosecution, Some Like it Hot, and yeah 1, 2 , 3 because Cagney - WarLord
See, this proves the problem I'm having. - Jandy
My first, gut reaction was "Sunset Boulevard." I went with "The Apartment" simply because it won more awards. :) Sabrina would also be a great option, but mainly because of Audrey. - Cult Hero
It'd very hard http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... having said that he was at TEH top of his game with Stalag 17 - WarLord
Stalag 17, Casino Royale, and The Apartment. All so different yet all so great! - Ken Morley
Casino Royale? - Jandy
I guess not really a Wilder film, but I believe he was involved. :P - Ken Morley
Unaccredited writer - fhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - WarLord
I may be on my own with that pick. :) - Ken Morley
I may have to revisit Witness For the Prosecution Charles Laughton, Elsa Lancaster, Marlene Dietrich - Billy Wilder as Hitchcock - WarLord
Hmmm, interesting, Ken. I didn't realize he'd had a pass at that script. Googled a bit, sounds like his parts of the script were probably largely written over by the end. I'm reading a bio of him now, hopefully it'll go into more detail about that. Anyway, I definitely wouldn't count it as a Wilder film! - Jandy
My memory of Casino Royale ( I was in HS) it was a terribly flawed film trying to cash in on 007 at absolute height of Bond craze. I think it was only Fleming novel not owned by regular 007 franchise#Memory.... - WarLord
There's a TV version of Casino Royale, the 1967 version, and then 1983's Never Say Never Again that are considered "unofficial" - not produced by the Broccolis, I think is the distinction. I liked the '67 version as a hilarious spoof/parody, but yeah, it totally doesn't fit with the other films. Sounds like the Ben Hecht version of the script from '64 would've, though. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture... - Jandy
Okay, not a Wilder film, so I'll substitute Some Like It Hot. Sorry WarLord, it's just not possible for any film with David Niven, Peter Sellers /and/ Woody Allen to be "terribly flawed". ;) - Ken Morley
Some Like It Hot, no question. - Stephen Mack
Stalag 17 or The Apartment. - Hookuh Tinypants
Double Indemnity and Irma la Douce. - Red Label
While I love Sunset Blvd, I'd go with Some Like It Hot. - Corinne L
