    Anyone got a coffee bean recommendation? Need to stock up as I am 2/3 of the way through my luckylloydcoffe.com (Cloudpicker) order. I like his coffee but it all seems a fairly light hipster roast and doesn't really provide the required kick in the balls oomph when I make espresso with it.

    So requirement is to advise a dark, Italian style roast please.

      Denny, it's a blatant failure of presidential leadership in a time of acute crisis. As soon as you go down the 'what about...' route you're acknowledging that.

      Trump is Trump. He can't help himself and so far it's served him well. But now Americans see him cluelessly floundering, changing tack constantly, attacking the people he's meant to be protecting, making shit up on the fly and ignoring scientific advice. He's a charlatan. Americans are dying because of him.

      Great leaders rise to great challenges. Trump will not be judged well in the verdict of history.

            I'm not saying Obama, Biden or any other politician would have done it better or worse, I just feel no matter what they did it would have been too late.

            The only way this would have worked was full lockdown in January, there isn't a person in politics today that would have achieved that, in February and March Biden and Pelosi were still telling Americans to go about there lives.

            There is no way that Americans would have accepted a full lockdown and their economy blown to pieces after 1000 cases and 50 deaths.

            They had to let it run and let people see what is happening before they could get the lockdowns and funding.

            Would you have accepted a lockdown in Ireland in January or February?

              As AJ is seemingly on holidays, I applied my recent hobby of topic modelling to analyse all the posts in the previous BBV and see what exactly we were talking about throughout the three years of the last BBV.

              An explanatory video of the topic modelling technique here, or this article approximately describes the technique with an applied example:

              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mHy4OSyRf0


              For the technique I scraped all the individual posts in the thread. Then I pre-cleaned them by:
              • removing odd characters like punctuation and digits
              • removed any common 'stopwords' such as: and, of, the
              • wiped any posts with less than 5 words
              • took out any quoted posts nested in a post
              • removed any terms used only once or twice across all posts
              • turned the posts into a bag of words - i.e. a list of individual words remaining per topic



              The modeling itself is a mixture of natural language processing and machine learning and works by probabilistically associating clusters of words based on co-occurence across all posts and spits out a number of topics that best describe the discussion. Based on running a few models the best model to describe how we post here was eight overall topics. These topics need to be interpreted then by the person running the model, so I then assigned logical labels to the topics.

              So, for example, one of the topics (surprisingly) was 'poker', which I interpreted based on these being the 20 most common words that cluster together for the topic:

              Words at the top are most associated with the topic, while those lower down the list are more weakly associated but still part of the topic. Maybe it might be best described as gambling rather than poker, but the general idea is there.


              Anyway - today's task: anyone want to guess what the other seven core topics are - topics describable in a single word?

                Something like this: https://www.roastedbrown.com/shop/don-francisco

                Classic Guatemalan with caramel. I'm more into the lightly roasted as I find the dark a little tasteless at time but this is quite nice.

                Maybe not dark enough for you but their coffee is always great.

                    Nope - it was fully pre-timed: widely predicted, including on here - and by comparison with more pro-active countries.

                        Now you're going down the 'what about' route too. None of those people are the President.

                        Put it this way: there weren't many people saying 'what about Wendell Wilkie?' when Pearl Harbour happened. Or even 'what about Al Gore?' on 9/11.

                        There is one President. They and they alone are responsible.

                        Unless you're Trump of course.

                          If he claimed the credit for the stock market rising (now collapsed and not something he had much control over), then he most definitely needs to claim the blame for something under his direct control.

                            I don't agree with "the buck stops here" analogy, power is not centralized in DC, there are failures all over the US before, during and even now. Some states are handling things better than others, that's down to individual leadership in those states.

                                  Hours after security researchers at Citizen Lab reported that some Zoom calls were routed through China, the video conferencing platform has offered an apology and a partial explanation.

                                  To recap, Zoom has faced a barrage of headlines this week over its security policies and privacy practices, as hundreds of millions forced to work from home during the coronavirus pandemic still need to communicate with each other.

                                    Surely by default some European calls were routed through US then? I'd be far more worried about US misusing the data right now. Although China will be a bigger risk in the future.

                                          There are so many things we could have done differently.

                                          Telling people coming back from affected countries no need to isolate less they had symptoms.

                                          Nearly berating Nursing Homes decision to restrict visits.

                                          Suggesting to IRFU that Italian game should not go ahead.

                                          Letting 5k Italian tourists whore around Dublin.

                                          Waiting till the last minute to cancel St.Patrick's day, after several towns and cities had already made that decision.

                                          All in the past, and the difference between us now and America, is we move forward and try and fix issues as they come up and even preempt them, not keep blaming an administration thats nearly 4 years ago at this stage. No country stockpiles ventilators just in case.

                                          Solid talking heads that we can trust, we have no other choice really.

                                          The best time to have done anything was January, the next best time is when you actually do it.

We are not allowed out of our homes here in Spain except to shop once a week and have to go to our nearest supermarket. Only one person is allowed to shop and only one person per car. We can walk our dogs as far as 50 metres from your residence for a maximum of 10 mins.

                                                              Shoppers are approached by police, ID's entered into database and fines for people breaking the once a week rule. Fines for people not shopping locally. 600 euro - 2000 euro fines I've seen so far.

                                                                  There is a big difference being outside the presidents office, saying what they would do, this and that, and being in office and having briefings on what could happen and what then deciding what you would actually do. Frankly, the experts are likely to not disagree with Trump greatly as they know they will lose their influence or jobs and somebody worse will replace them, costing even more lives. He's a man-child and that shapes everything around him.

                                                                    It's 18 degrees and sunny in London so we've fired up the bbq for the first time this year. Scorcher tomorrow also with 20 degrees expected.

                                                                      An explanatory video of the topic modelling technique here, or this article approximately describes the technique with an applied example:

                                                                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mHy4OSyRf0


                                                                      For the technique I scraped all the individual posts in the thread. Then I pre-cleaned them by:
                                                                      • removing odd characters like punctuation and digits
                                                                      • removed any common 'stopwords' such as: and, of, the
                                                                      • wiped any posts with less than 5 words
                                                                      • took out any quoted posts nested in a post
                                                                      • removed any terms used only once or twice across all posts
                                                                      • turned the posts into a bag of words - i.e. a list of individual words remaining per topic



                                                                      The modeling itself is a mixture of natural language processing and machine learning and works by probabilistically associating clusters of words based on co-occurence across all posts and spits out a number of topics that best describe the discussion. Based on running a few models the best model to describe how we post here was eight overall topics. These topics need to be interpreted then by the person running the model, so I then assigned logical labels to the topics.

                                                                      So, for example, one of the topics (surprisingly) was 'poker', which I interpreted based on these being the 20 most common words that cluster together for the topic:

                                                                      Words at the top are most associated with the topic, while those lower down the list are more weakly associated but still part of the topic. Maybe it might be best described as gambling rather than poker, but the general idea is there.


                                                                      Anyway - today's task: anyone want to guess what the other seven core topics are - topics describable in a single word?
                                                                      I've been inundated with demands to discover the other seven topics. Relax people. Countless private messages and phone calls. Lots of Whatsapp messages with a big black dick. All going 'what are the other topics we talk about?! We need to know!'. Kudos to the person who chartered the private plane to fly over the gaff with a banner reading 'tell us the other topics'. Okaaaay! You win. I'll post them a bit later. Learn a bit of patience.

                                                                          Within the confines of the current limitations, what else would you implore the Irish government to do?

                                                                          Does Spain have an average contact count of 2.5 per case? That is quite literally getting into average household size territory. It really can't go that much lower.

                                                                          Currently Ireland is one of the leading testing nations in the world, doubled ICU capacity to manage what is envisaged to cope with max capacity. Step down facilities, almost 50 testing centres, proportionally far more than most other nations.

                                                                          The testing limitations both in numbers of tests and time to results are ubiquitous issues throughout the globe. California for example with 8 day wait times.

                                                                          There one shortcoming has been their failure to limit the spread in nursing homes but outside of that, there is very little to criticise them for.

                                                                                  Game starts in 5 mins, looking forward to it. Can't see anything other than a 85-77 scoreline really.

                                                                                    Yeah exactly, doing the lockdown around Cheltenham timeframe was too late.

                                                                                    Britain is fucked, US is fucked, Africa is another timebomb, India the same. This is just the beginning, each week is going to bring more and more clarity, anyone not doing full lockdown now is fucked.

                                                                                    Ireland has an advantage being a small Island nation, that being said we will know in the next week or so if the current measures are enough.

                                                                                    FWIW, my 2 sisters are nurses and my dad has been in China since December. Sisters are expecting the ICU depts to be overwhelmed so we'll know soon if Ireland have done enough regarding the increase in capacity.

                                                                                    Dad has been on lockdown for 9 weeks. He has been sick but not tested so don't know if he had it or not.

All of us ripping into a few Guinness and we had a quizmaster for the laughs. Had 10 of us and pretty clear picture and audio was good. 4 of them are living together even and you could hear them too clearly

                                                                                                                    Every 40 minutes it does timeout if you don't pay for an account but we had a couple of smokers so that was the smoke and grab a Guinness break.
