Genetic Algorithm Python Example

Posted on January 31, 2021

Genetic Algorithms (GA) are a subclass of evolutionary algorithms that emulate natural evolution. Darwin’s theory on natural selection states that the fittest individuals are the ones which reproduce. Following this theory, genetic algorithms are composed of three main phases: selection, reproduction, and mutation that attempt to copy the working mechanisms of nature. Genetic algorithms are principally used to find the global optimal solution heuristically. Genetic Algorithm Applications Genetic algorithms have been applied to many different problems in a wide spectrumRead More

New Year’s Resolutions 2021: Building a healthy lifestyle

Posted on January 1, 2021

Life is a never-ending learning process. For many years I have been writing publicly my new year resolutions (2020, 2019, etc) and my own assessments at the end of the year (2020, 2019, etc). It is a practice that I find useful to reflect on oneself decide what to keep and what to change. This practice is not perfect and includes failure, like last year when I tried to list my goals in a monthly format instead of bullet points.Read More

2020 resolutions revised: Incredible plot twist and the new normal

Posted on December 28, 2020

What an incredible 2020! One year ago nobody would have expected this, and now the whole world has normalized this “new normal”. A bat flu has crashed all world economies and united mankind for the research of a vaccine to overcome this new virus. I guess nobody had a pandemic in the apocalypse bingo for 2020. Nevertheless, I tried to make the most of this rollercoaster year and instead of grieving, I tried to accept what we’ve been given. InRead More

EASY install anaconda on macOS using homebrew

Posted on December 6, 2020

Installing anaconda on a macOS is not a simple task. Sometimes it requires a lot of troubleshooting, like setting the right shell initialization. To solve this I propose to install anaconda through homebrew. All of these commands are performed through the terminal unless otherwise specified in step 3. 1. Install homebrew /bin/bash -c “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)” 2. Install anaconda brew install –cask anaconda 3. Set the right anaconda path Edit the ~/.zshrc file. You can do it using vim: vimRead More

Moral hazard…

Posted on November 25, 2020

…that occurs when people don’t have skin in the game. If you’re able to place a bet and you get the wins but you won’t bear the losses why don’t you go all in every time? We should look for people that have skin in the game, they can still err but at least they will suffer the consequences. It’s very easy to bet on other people’s money and walk away when things don’t look good. It’s not only usRead More

Theodore Roosevelt "The Strenuous Life" (1899)

Posted on November 20, 2020

Following my Theodore Roosevelt stack of quotes here you can find some segments of “The Strenuous Life” speech he gave in 1899. Each of the following paragraphs represents a segment. I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man whoRead More

Citizenship in a Republic By Theodore Roosevelt (1910)

Posted on November 15, 2020

Here there are some quotes from the Citizenship in a Republic By Theodore Roosevelt that I found were worth keeping and reflecting upon. Each of the following paragraphs represents a segment. It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweatRead More

Based on the meaning of the words separately Conspicuous: Attracting notice or attention. Consumption: The action of using up a resource. Put together, conspicuous consumption refers to buying expensive goods to display wealth rather than covering the real consumer needs. This economic theory criticizes the industrializedRead More
