The semantic contortions the government engages in for the pageantry of a "National Whistleblower Day"—while refusing to acknowledge any of the actual whistleblowers it put in prison (such as the source of the revelation below)—are more than offensive. They are shameful. twitter.com/DevlinBarrett/stat

First part of the meme is NOT a fake news, second part is just a logical conclusion of the first part. Sometimes ideas in this world make a short-circuit in my poor brain.

A fire at the Brazilian Cinemateque last night in São Paulo. 4 tons of materials, 2K prints lost. After the fire at the National Museum and multiple calls 4help from the film community(20 days ago I called it out in Cannes), nothing done. It doesn’t even feel like an accident.

Today’s Anniversary of Medicare & Medicaid reminds us to reflect on the critical role these programs have played to protect the healthcare of millions of families. To safeguard our future, we must reject Socialist healthcare schemes. twitter.com/poststar/status/14

Hmm... I'd like to see any of these "realistic" latent space models fitting a bipartite graph.

RT @jugander@twitter.com

@thegautamkamath@twitter.com In my opinion, this reflects that fact that a lot of the "structure" we seek in realistic network models are actually about the "structure" of point clouds (in a covariate space). Realistic point cloud -> realistic graph. See also recent work on hyperbolic space latent models.

It's clear to me that people can't see how this authoritarian monster that's been created with the government in cahoots with big tech couldn't possibly come for them someday because right now it's coming for people they don't like.

I've heard this argument many times, but I just don't understand it.

How can you know statistics without knowing calculus?

RT @boehninglab@twitter.com

Maybe unpopular opinion: statistics is infinitely more useful than calculus for most students.

I think we should encourage people to get the vaccine. I don’t think calling them dumb is the way to do it. I also don’t think that liberal pundits who bought into the dumbest conspiracy theory of all time — Trump-Russia collusion — should be calling others dumb. twitter.com/elienyc/status/142

What about the Americans who aren’t happy to be paying taxes for the inflated military budgets you keep voting for @SpeakerPelosi@twitter.com? Or what about those without health insurance whose taxes subsidize yours?

Can they opt out? twitter.com/mstratford/status/

Amazing... no principles whatsoever.

Pelosi also questioned the policy wisdom of cancelling student loan debt:

“Suppose…your child just decided they, at this time, [do] not want to go to college but you’re paying taxes to forgive somebody else’s obligations. You may not be happy about that."
