People are really going overboard in over-weighting recent events compared to structural and baseline estimates.
We need another question for Pelosi as President on Jan 21...
Aldrin - 89, Scott - 87, Duke - 83, Schmitt - 83.
The question boils doing to a race between 2 83 year olds' life spans and Elon Musk. Note that per their wikipedia pages, Duke and Schmitt are both still active.
@Uncle Jeff Because the route from distant bats to Wuhan is tenuous without lab research as the dot between, I was leaning as far toward toward positive as I could without risking points to the mob. Only the dishonest display of points against is causing me to go negative (it was zero until today).
You are aware that there were markets in southern China that sold farmed populations of bats and other "wild" animals to markets in Wuhan, right?
@cbrandolino said "I interpret it as: "Out of 100 randomly sampled Russians who want to leave, will at least 2 of them not manage to do so due to state-sponsored restrictions?""
There's an additional critical point - there need to be media sources that report on it.
@Reprisal "Anyone can use quotes to seem wise, regardless of specific relevance."
@michaelchen Also see NASA's article that concludes these are full of hematite, i.e. not alive: https://mars.nasa.gov/resources/6944/martian-…
The current estimate seems very high - it seems unlikely (p<50%) hostilities resume, and if they don't, this is unlikely to trigger.
(During "peacetime," a couple of rockets are fired per month, but Netanyahu has said he's going to be super-aggressive if this happens, so it's likely to stay lower.)
@frxtz Because I didn't realize they had added a feature allowing components. This is awesome!
I won't predict this - I hate the perverse incentives for forecasting with the possibility of early close, and this is that to an insane extent.
The sum of individual values is a very, very weird metric, given how the Trends chart is computed.
Also, looking now, there's basically no chance this happens unless there is a huge spike for some reason over several months - and even then, the summed monthly values will get washed out - 150% is a crazy high bar for this metric.
"completes the instruction of such a course for credit" seems unlcear. If the course is listed in the course catalog starting in January 2024, or is ongoing as of Jan 1, does that count as the instruction being completed? Or does the course need to be completed, so that essentially only courses taught fall 2023 would count?
Also, does the course need to have this as its sole focus, or can it be part of the syllabus?
@Uncle Jeff It's a big industry that China was cultivating until the outbreak; https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/…
If you think inflation will stay very high, remember that this is predicting real, i.e. after adjusting for inflation, GDP growth.
New York Times has updated to 80,925,383 votes (51.3%) vs. 74,071,768 votes (46.9%), with NY changing to 92% counted. This gives Biden a 4.4% lead already, making this a negative resolution, unless the final count somehow ends up reducing Biden's lead. So it's not done for another week, but it looks like this is all-but-settled.
Any views on how the Hong Kong citizenship decision could impact this? Seems plausible it could go to above 1m if many in HK decide to move.
