I find it interesting to imagine that one can enjoy the taste of coffee/wine indepently of their psychoactive effects (e.g. decaf coffee), but the reason their taste has been so optimized is their economic impact due to the culture around them, which arose due to those effects.

John Mather: "I don't get anxious about stuff I can't deal with. [...] So I'm not anxious about things because I know we are doing the right thing to make the best possible plan. So when somebody says we should worry about this, we worry about it and then we make a plan."

In the last week I've started to receive inquiries from people running tree planting programs wanting my help. I am suggesting that they shut down their programs. Here I will explain why:

Not only just for their own project, I have seen collaborative python projects that had a setup.sh that needed to be sourced to set the PYTHONPATH correctly. Writing a bash-script is imo not easier to do than to edit template for a setup.py/pyproject.toml

Show thread

Why is it so widespread in HEP to "install" python packages by extending PYTHONPATH, instead of via setuptools/pip. Is this just a HEP/physics thing passed on within our community or generally widespread among self-taught python programmers?

Neuigkeiten zu meinem Strafverfahren wegen der App: Die Staatsanwaltschaft hat das Verfahren eingestellt. Weil die nämlich keine Sicherheitsmaßnahmen ergriffen hatte, die ich umgehen hätte können. Ich habe die also nicht gehackt.

I hope I'm not teaching anti-patterns here. I would always consider working instead with boolean array indexing. However, queries have the advantage of working independently of the array shape and are simpler than defining mask-generating functions.

Alternatively, for a list queries, you can use string-join to concatenate them.

query tip: I often see long and complicated, undocumented dataframe queries with multiple and's, or's and parens. You can improve readability a lot by assigning sub-query strings to variables with descriptive names and combining them, e.g. via f-strings:

I'm really impressed with the software in the ROOT project, but having a lightweight pip-installable package to pythonically interact with its file format is very important for bringing the HEP and scientific python communities closer together. Jim Pivarski did a great job!

Just saw in my feed that the project released version 4.1.0, which finally supports writing files. For people in HEP, this is huge!

I assume this is why it's common to add sour cream, eat them black bread or cook a second course, these things increase the energy content. However, if I omit those things, Russian soups are great for weight loss. Before, I believed most Russian food is high in calories.

One revelation I got from calorie counting was how few calories there are in simple Russian soups, which I know from my Grandma, considering how satiating and comforting they are. Also, unprocessed potatoes rock. Here's a mushroom soup from today and a Borscht from last weekend.

I'd love to read something about bird behaviors and urban ecosystems, but don't know where to start. Most "birdwatching" books seem to be focused on identification, which is useful, but isn't what interests me most.
