why do people take statins for lowering cholesterol? statins block the biosynthesis of both cholesterol AND CoQ10 (CoQ10 is a first line antioxidant found in the mitochondria that literally is a free radical scavenger). Because it reduces CoQ10...it increases the risk of cancers and worsens current cancers. So why the fuck do people think its ok to use these drugs?

In most cases like this, whatever the drug is treating is more dangerous than the side effects. The drug should still not be abused though. Same goes for things like NSAIDS, which also increase oxidative stress on the heart.

The fundamental issue is not which subtly different, fine-tuned algorithm you use to display your data, but that you need any such algorithm in the first place. if you have to quibble this much, your data is shit to begin with.

>> No.11144730

It's THE orthogonal basis that preserves the most of your variance. 'Clearest possible view' is extremely informal but it's on the right track.

The reason you don't try and measure shit off a pca graph is the axis are (effectively) unknown combinations of your actual dimensions and it doesn't mean anything. You can get more out of your actual PCA fit information but the plot is just to communicate an intuitive sense of how similar or not your groups are.

Any of you big brains know if there is a short formula expressing a cyclic-universe, or just a cyclical system in general that I can plug stuff into?

Doesn't haven't to be proven.
Even if it's only theoretically/mathematically expressed like White-Holes or something, and is probably fiction.

Something to express all the energy in an enclosed system being compressed to a single infinite point.
(I know our current understanding of entropy suggests that it's unlikely and that no more work can be done at some-point, but this is assuming there were some extenuating force - a quantum/thermal fluctuation, gravity acting odd, etc.)

Haplogroups are used by scientists to trace ancestry from various populations in humans as well as other in organisms through either maternal (x haplogroup) or paternal (y haplogroup) descent.

It depends on the haplogroup, remember that haplogroups are not necessarily entire genes, but small sequences that differ between populations, most of those sequences do nothing by themselves.

Just had my first coding interview and, good lord, that was not what I expected. No data structures or algorithms whatsoever. Also no real code writing.

Only had 2 sessions (was told that there was a misscheduling? Could that've been a lie and I got cut early or something?)

First session was coding, but not really. First question was a cost analysis problem, but not a coding one. Evaluate the cost of 3 different possible projects and recommend one to the CTO. This was really strange and threw me for a loop immediately. I tried to verbalize my thinking process as you should, but it was just calculating costs. No coding whatsoever.

Next question I absolutely fucked up on. First, I forgot that fg is the linux command for displaying processes. Just completely blanked and admitted it. They then asked if I knew how to find out more about a process. I mentioned ways to deconstruct its code/debug (like looking for improper forks), but he gave as a hint "it is the file grep uses". Knowing that grep can parse any text file, I didn't know what he meant. They just kept grilling me on this for like 15 minutes, and finally said it was logs. Of course I know what logs are! They were being very vague and saying "data files".

Third question was object oriented programming, which I explained fine I think. Standard build a system with superclasses, subclasses etc.

2nd session went amazing, and I really hit it off with the other developers. This section was more about my personal projects and previous job experience.

After that though, it was just a tour of the office and then I was sent out. I feel so strange. I was never asked a single data structure question at all, not a single thing about database management or algorithms either.

Do I have any shot? They said I asked a lot of good questions on the other 2 coding questions, and I solved them. Aced session 2. I just feel like its fucking ridiculous if it comes down to me forgetting a linux system command.

Lol I didn't use either. I remembered it was grep related but didn't know either command.

To be fair though, its not a unix developer position (AWS and SQL play a big role from what I was told, and I do have experience with those). Am I the only guy who has a bash cheat sheet in another window while coding? I feel like expecting total memorization of linux system commands for a new grad is a bit much, especially considering I never claimed on my application to be a linux expert.

Next time I'll write an email prior to the final interview clarifying what exactly they are looking for. I applied through a reference, not a listing, so I didn't really know they were going to be so stuck on linux expertise.

Just double checked all the software engineering listings by the company. Not once does it mention Linux experience. Also never mentioned it on my resume or cover letter.

Does that change anything? Now I'm even more confused about being grilled so hard on it. Shouldn't they have listed "linux experience" as a requirement if they are seeking rapid recall of system commands? Especially for an entry-level software dev position?

Yes, a tractor configuration would be lighter than a pusher.
