Continue to discuss news stories that upset and disturb you more than usual, crimes, disasters and events that stay on your mind, stories of criminals, victims and survivors that you want to discuss etc. Try to post relevant pictures, names, links to articles, websites etc if you can, so that people can look up the cases for themselves easier.

Prestigious scientific journals were publishing a lot of facial recognition and DNA analysis studies on Uyghur people just before the time the Uyghur situation started entering the news cycle. Journals refused to retract them but suddenly a lot of them are getting reviewed and retracted.

The police finally arrested a suspect, Miguel Enrique Salguero-Olivares, in the murder of 19-year-old Faith Hedgepeth. She went to my alma mater (before I attended) and was murdered in her off campus apartment 9 years ago.

It's been fucking with me since they arrested him yesterday because he was never even a suspect. He'd gotten away with it this whole time and was only caught because he was pulled over for a DUI earlier this year where they drew his blood for BAC, it was then entered into the national database where they finally got a hit on a DNA match (not sure if it was from the semen DNA collected or the DNA collected from the liquor bottle used to kill her).

It makes me think about how many other murderers there are out in the world who were never even suspects and have gotten away with it because their DNA isn't in any database.

Hold on, she also claimed
White civilization was all pure cancer
>If America is the culmination of Western white civilization, as everyone from the Left to the Right declares, then there must be something terribly wrong with Western white civilization. This is a painful truth; few of us want to go that far…. The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Marx, Balanchine ballets, et al, don't redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history; it is the white race and it alone—its ideologies and inventions—which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself.[2]
So Yeah, she just seems like another pretentious liberal white women, who also plagiarized the works of other

>Ellen Lee accused Sontag of plagiarism when Lee discovered at least twelve passages in In America (1999) that were similar to, or copied from, passages in four other books about Helena Modjeska without attribution.[53][54] Sontag said about using the passages, "All of us who deal with real characters in history transcribe and adopt original sources in the original domain. I've used these sources and I've completely transformed them. There's a larger argument to be made that all of literature is a series of references and allusions."[55]

>In a 2007 letter to the editor of the Times Literary Supplement, John Lavagnino identified an unattributed citation from Roland Barthes' 1970 essay "S/Z" in Sontag's 2004 speech "At the Same Time: The Novelist and Moral Reasoning," delivered as the Nadine Gordimer Lecture in March 2004.[56] Further research led Lavagnino to identify several passages which appeared to have been taken without aPost too long.

You have to have a programmer's way of thinking hammered into you by practicing with the concepts in mind. I recommend starting off with Java while keeping in mind OOP concepts so you can trace what you're making, not only the output but also the abstract. Sorry I don't know what resources there are, it's my major but I'm rusty myself

It takes time. Eventually there'll be a point where it suddenly clicks and it will be like second nature. And then once you've understood that one thing there's a bunch of others that don't make sense until they do.

I studied CS at university and I didn't really get testing (pretty important in the professional world) until I was a year into my graduate job.

The good thing is that once you've had it happen once you'll know it can happen again so struggling to understand something isn't quite as disheartening.

I'm looking for advice anons - I want to learn QML, but have no experience with coding or any of the other frameworks or languages. Can I jump into it or should I first learn QT or JavaScript. I'm never going to learn C++, programming languages in general confuse me but QML seems most logical to me, probably because it's concerning the userface which is all I'm interested in learning. Any advice or resources on this would be great.

Sorry for the dumb question but does anyone have advice on a language or engine for a project I'm working on? I want to make a text-based procedural generation storyteller similar to Legends Mode in Dorf Fort. So far I've been making a prototype in Python because I took a couple classes on that in college but I don't want to put too much work into it yet in case Python will end up being a retarded choice down the road. It's just for fun, not concerned about making a good finished product or anything like that.

Does anyone have experience with navigating AWS? I'm just trying to practice building ETLs and applying ML models to their outputs, but AWS has about 10 million tools and next to no guidance for which does what. They also seem to really bad about updating their tutorials to reflect changes in their products.

>>904992
I think you should make draw out your design for the project before you pick what language to use. The biggest pros of Python are that it's easy to use and has a lot of well-documented libraries, but if you want to go all in on OOP with interfaces/abstract classes etc, you should use something else.

I had a dream that I was in highschool but it was bizarre. My class was only me and a handful of boys. I went to the changing room before gym class to announce something to my class. Among them was soldier tf2 without a shirt on but with his helmet of course and his arms were crossed and his muscles were so huge but looked comfortable like pillows to lay your head on. Then some other guy brought out a DVD from his bag and apparently this school loaned porn DVDs to good students over the weekend and I thought wtf this is a school it should be teaching students to be good people, not bribing them with porn. And the guy also brought a big tin can like the ones for cookies and it said needle felting supplies on it and I was like oh goodie. But he said it was empty and he would smuggle the porn DVD out of school in it. I was disappointed. And soldier said "But I wanted to try needle felting.." and I came up to him and put my hand on his shoulder and said "Oh soldier, I wanted to try needle felting too…" and then I stroked his chest with my hand and he looked at me and everyone else also looked at us amazed, and I tangled my fingers into his chest hairs and then I woke up dammit.

i have had almost no content with gen z and have no opinion on them

that said i do like to take rare pokemon cards and burn them in the presence of millennials but that is not specifically anti-millennial so much as it is about how much i enjoy being a dick

gen z are like eskimos i mean i know they exist and i see them come into my store sometimes but i really wouldnt know what to say in the same way as i dont know what to say to an eskimo

had any good fish lately would probably be a clanker if an eskimo walked in and likewise with gen z i would…

ok frankly i have more of an idea of how to start a conversation with an eskimo than a gen z apparently

no offense to gen z but u are even more of an enigma to me than eskimos

and believe u me eskimos are an enigma i mean they are cool as fuck but what the fuck do you talk about with ppl who have basically conquered the arctic

maybe ask them if they like immigrant song by led zeppelin or if theyve heard it

I think everything is dying, society is dying and you might argue that it was just as bad in the past but I will vehemently disagree. There were problems in the past, but the problems of the past are here in the present too and actually amplified. We are losing moral value at an alarming rate, we are losing artistry, beauty, authenticity and everything is replaced with plastic and lies. I hate modernity. All my favorite artists are older. I just think creativity and authenticity is dead amongst modern artists. Everything is porn and plastic just porn and plastic, everyone and everything just looks the same. Even the stereotype of the, unique, liberal out of the box artist is dead. Now it has been replaced with identical looking alt fashioned kids. At least, in the past true artists had to fight and suffer for the right to express themselves. Now everyone can be anything they want without truly being that. You can be a woman if you want to, you can be an artist, you can be anything. You can buy anything. Feminity can be bought. I'm tired. I want to die but I don't. I just want to speak out this incomprehensible train of thought to someone that can magically de and understand it.
