Pour revenir sur son texte, nous avons eu un hiver particulière doux et les érables on peu de sucre dans leur sèvre. Il fait ensuite un parallèle sur nos us et coutumes, et en quoi, il y a de véritables enjeux quant à l'identité québécoise et les changements climatiques. Il a cité un organisme et une année, 2050, où la production ne sera plus possible que sur la Côte Nord.
En bref, j'ai trouvé son texte remplis d'esprit et je me demandais, pour ceux qui ont des cabanes à sucre familial, si vous en arrivez au même constat ?
Le texte en question :
>« Gabriel, une érablière ça se pousse pas. Ça marche avec la nature.»
>Depuis quatre générations, chaque printemps, les Nadeau font les sucres. Mon grand-père l’a appris de son père, il l’a enseigné à ma mère, elle et mes oncles me l’ont transmis. Enfant, c’est la tire d’érable et les batailles de balles de neige avec mes cousines qui faisaient de ces fins de semaine mes préférées de l’année.
>Adolescent, j’ai appris à apprécier le temps passé sur le bord de la bouilleuse, à écouter mon grand-père m’expliquer que c’est quand le sirop fait des « belles grosses palettes » au bout du « dipper » qu’il faut le couler.
>Quinze ans plus tard, même si je n’oserais jamais m’attribuer l’honorable statut de sucrier, j’ai mes bases. Chauffer la bouilleuse, surveiller le niveau d’eau dans les « panes », « canner » après une grosse coulée, les tâches que j’ai longtemps trouvé harassantes ont acquis un caractère méditatif. Après des semaines plongé dans le tourbillon politique et médiatique de la colline parlementaire, faire les sucres (avec ma bulle familiale), ça m’apaise.
>Cette année, la saison est mauvaise. Pour une raison mystérieuse, la sève des érables est très peu sucrée. Il faut bouillir deux fois plus longtemps et brûler deux fois plus de bois que les années passées pour obtenir la même quantité de sirop. Pandémie oblige, mon grand-père Fernand s’est contenté de venir dire bonjour de loin pendant sa marche du dimanche (ne vous inquiétez pas pour lui, il est resté à l’extérieur). J’en ai quand même profité pour lui demander quoi faire quand c’est si long entre deux coulées.
>« J’peux tu faire quelque chose pour que ça aille plus vite? »
- « Gabriel, une érablière ça se pousse pas. Ça marche avec la nature. »
>En fin de semaine, j’ai pensé à ça. Mon grand-père a bien raison. On ne le dit pas assez souvent, mais c’est grâce à
Good news everyone! We’re really excited to announce a new partnership - /r/Bristol is now formally affiliated with the Bristol Post.
This partnership means that we’re going to prohibit posting of articles from any media source other than the Post - the Bristol Post is now /r/Bristol’s official source of high-quality news and authoritative truth.
/r/Bristol and the Bristol Post share the same core values: total honesty, complete and utter transparency, not to mention a deep-seated love for bridges & helicopters.
A particularly exciting development is our new ability to syndicate comments between the two sites, so that both sets of users can benefit from one another's complementary perspectives and world views.
We’re excited about this new direction for quality news reporting on the sub, and hope that you are too. It’s a momentous day - 1st April will go down in history as a turning point for Bristol’s media bias.
Tarquin Snugglebum, Editor of the Post, said “You won’t believe these 10 reasons that the Bristol Post basically owning /r/Bristol is actually in your interest. Trust me.”
Sir Snarquin Tugglebum, CEO of Bristol Post’s corporate overlords, said “Reach PLC owns literally DOZENS other publications including the Daily Mirror, Daily Express, Daily Star, Daily Record, and an absolute fuckton of local rags, and utterly denies our (alleged!) role in phone hacking scandals a while back. Trust us.”
The /r/Bristol mods, in
ownership partnership with the Bristol Post and Reach plc thank you for your upvotes and hope that this transition can occur smoothly and quietly, as we just lie down and take it as Bristolians tend to do.
I went overboard.
My publishing company is an LLC, with its own business address, 800 number, and professional greeting. I created LCCNs; I bought all my ISBNs. I typeset the hardcovers/softcovers in InDesign line by line; I stood up a publisher website. I produced/narrated the audiobooks (which was SLOW). I even wrote custom HTML so the e-books didn't look too bland. I designed covers in Photoshop (which I eventually recovered with fiverr).

This is actually a couple of months late, but probably close enough. George R.R. Martin recently passed the milestone of being a published author for fifty (50) years.
Martin's first professionally-published story was "The Hero," a story from his Thousand Worlds space opera setting. It was published in the February 1971 issue of Galaxy Magazine, though he'd written it in 1968-69 when he'd made his first serious push to become a published author. This period also resulted in "The Added Safety Factor" (eventually published in 1979 as "Warship"), "The Fortress" (eventually published in 1985 as "Under Siege," no relation to the Steven Segal movie), "And Death His Legacy" and "Protector." Martin's earlier writing had been for juvenile fanzines and fan comics (albeit involving some very familiar names, like the brave warrior Barristan the Bold fighting against the evil forces of the Dothrak Empire). In fact, his very first-published material of any kind was a letter to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby printed in Fantastic Four #20 (August 1963).
"The Hero," though, was the first of Martin's stories to see print and kick-started a run of early, promising fiction that eventually culminated in his Hugo Award-winner "A Song for Lya" (1974). Additional, multi-award winning fiction followed, including the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning "Sandkings" (1979) (soon to be a Netflix film from Gore Verbinski) and Hugo Award-winning "The Way of Cross and Dragon" (1979), along with his novels Dying of the Light (1977), Windhaven (1981, with Lisa Tuttle), Fevre Dream (1982) and The Armageddon Rag (1983), the commercial failure of which triggered a sideways career movie into film and television scripts. Martin spent years working in Hollywood on TV shows including The Twilight Zone and Beauty and the Beast, whilst rebuilding his novel career through Tuf Voyaging (1987) and working as the creator-editor of the popular Wild Cards series of superhero anthologies (starting in 1987 and continuing to this day).
This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Martin starting work on his wildly popular Song of Ice and Fire book series. Although A Game of Thrones wasn't published until five years later, Martin began work on the novel in the summer of 1991 when he was struck forcibly by the image of a young boy being taken by his father to see a deserter being executed in the snow.

I am becoming very frustrated with the publication culture in my field. Becoming an expert takes a long time and so is making a valuable contribution to the literature. However, publication pressure is turning many contributions into spin-offs that are slightly different from the publication before, and they are often redundant. Further, a failed experiment would never get published but it would actually provide insight to peers as to what route not to explore. I think that publication pressure is overwhelming for academics and in detriment of scientific literature. I feel like we seriously need to rethink the publication reward system. Does anybody have thoughts on this?
>!Well, I guess the heading is self-explanatory.!<
"u are out my leuge u have done things with ur life i coukd never do and u deserve more i am sorry i get that will mean nothing bit i am im here if u need anytbing"
Edit: For context, I'm a 30 year old researcher with 13 publications. In light of recent events in the UK, I posted some of my work on sexual harrassment at live music events and our recommendations for how venues can protect women from these POS. It's the first time I've ever shared this socially and I noticed he didn't 'like' any of it. Then he came around later and said he no longer had feelings for me.
The ex NVM introduced himself as an ex-Naval engineer that renovated houses for a living. Soon emerged to be a drug dealer selling weed out of his mum's house. Spent the last couple of months playing XBox in my living room while I'm upstairs lecturing.
I am so grateful for you ladies. FDS has been changing my life after years of NVM. So far I've been unable to sway my friends as far as I'm at so it's so good to share with you. I'm currently just reading these comments and playing the podcast on repeat.
I come from a traditional engineering field, and here is my observation about ML publication practice lately:
I have noticed that there are groups of researchers working on the intersection of "old" fields such as optimization, control, signal processing and the like, who will all of a sudden publish a massive amount of paper that purports to solve a certain problem. The problem itself is usually recent and sometimes involves some deep neural network.
However, upon close examination, the only novelty is the problem (usually proposed by other unaffiliated groups) but not the method proposed by the researchers that purports to solve it.
I was puzzled by why a very large amount of seemingly weak papers, literally rehashing (occasionally, well-known) techniques from the 1980s or even 60s are getting accepted, and I noticed the following recipe:
Since we have just reached chapter 250, I thought that updating it might be a good idea.

Recently, we've talked with Dean Baker,the co-founder of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, who made the case that the Act represents the largest expansion of the social safety net since the Great Society reforms of the 1960s: Norm Ornstein, an emeritus scholar at the conservative-leaning American Enterprise Institute, on why the Republicans could't do anything about the act and got stuck complaining about Dr. Seuss being canceled, and Randall Wray, a professor of economics at Bard College and one of the founders of modern monetary theory, about why he believes this expansive new government spending will help the country in a sustainable way, rather than driving up prices and public debt.

I am gathering resources for a writing project regarding how the education sector change with the lack of government regulations in a socialist perspective. What are some credible resources that I can cite to refute Milton Friedman/Chicago School's view that the government should not regulate education? I also need some Marxist resources on why government regulation is needed in the education sector or just any Marxist/socialist resources regarding education.

Though his guest didn't provide a ton of insight into the subject, I think Bill is one of the only liberals brave or smart enough to acknowledge the party is splitting -- more "conservative" Democrats who are flexible (and, in my opinion, more reasonable), and far-left figures who police language, essentially demonize a very wide net of prominent white male figures, feed into cancel culture, and generally have a "no tolerance" policy when it comes to outdated characters/themes in older pieces of art or minor transgressions by politicians. Like Bill, I also think this could damage the party in 2022 and cost them the House or the Senate. Fox News is picking up on this -- probably exacerbating this -- but I haven't seen any other news outlet analyze this trend at all. Am I missing something?
