Multiple callers reported shots fired in the 4500 block of Cottage Grove Rd. Officers responded and found approximately 36 shell casings, two damaged vehicles, and damage to buildings. From the evidence collected it is believed that there were two sides shooting at one another.
“If you dig into the details, the moral questions become less clear. Protesting farmers may have understandable fears about their futures, but they come mostly from a relatively privileged minority who benefit from an unsustainable procurement system set up more than 50 years ago. India’s leading experts on agriculture have urged reform for at least two decades.
Despite a publicly funded development, the notebooks themselves will be manufactured on contract by private companies.According to the Times of India, the $10 laptop is a direct response to the MIT developed nonprofit One Laptop Per Child program, that was viewed as grossly expensive in India. The OLPC devices cost about $100 each, but costs bring that price up to around $200. OLPC has also been a victim of its own poor strategy, evidenced by recent layoffs and a failure to secure donations and orders in 2008.
Chlo a t plutt dsagrable avec moi car elle tait persuade que j’avais bu la veille (parce que quand elle a appel vers les 23:00 pour cette histoire de hacking incomprhensible, apparemment je parlais bizarrement). Le pire, c’est que hier elle pensait que j’avais mme bu aussi le matin mme de notre sortie parce que j’ai butt dans une chaise 16:00. C’est stupide pour pas mal de raisons dont deux essentielles : pourquoi j’aurais pris le risque de boire le matin alors que je voyais les filles l’aprs midi !? Et mme si j’avais bu, le fait de buter dans une chaise 16:00 pourrait prouver quoi que ce soit alors qu’ cette heure forcment, l’effet de l’alcool aurait disparu ? et les filles se seraient rendues compte de rien par ailleurs ! (Elle vient de me dire par sms que je ne marchais pas droit toute l’aprs midi, je rigole des genoux !) Une troisime raison quand mme : je suis abstinent et je tiens le rester “plus fort que mourir”.
This note concerns three papers by Cox and Wermuth (2008; 2014; 2015 (hereforth WC’08, WC’14 and CW’15)) in which they call attention to a class of problems they named “indirect confounding,” where “a much stronger distortion may be introduced than by an unmeasured confounder alone or by a selection bias alone.” We will show that problems classified as “indirect confounding” can be resolved in just a few steps of derivation in do calculus.This in itself would not have led me to post a note on this blog, for we have witnessed many difficult problems resolved by formal causal analysis. However, in their three papers, Cox and Wermuth also raise questions regarding the capability and/or adequacy of the do operator and do calculus to accurately predict effects of interventions. Thus, a second purpose of this note is to reassure students and users of do calculus that they can continue to apply these tools with confidence, comfort, and scientifically grounded guarantees.Finally, I would like to invite the skeptic among my colleagues to re examine their hesitations and accept causal calculus for what it is: A formal representation of interventions in real world situations, and a worthwhile tool to acquire, use and teach.
