At the black sea. The land where I was born but haven't been to ever since I left... Until today.

How beautiful this cat is that made the roof of my rented house her new home?

I found an amazing code that restores old photos. It's so good, it's creepy.

It doesn't quite work with the edges (for example it merges my ears with my hair sometimes) and works poorly with faces too far away. But other than that it works amaizingly.

Code is here and also has a Google Colab set up:

๐Ÿ”ฌ Some notable exceptions to that global trend:

In the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ , the influence of income has vanished, and support depends solely (and strongly!) on education (highly educated โ†” leftist).

In (epitome: ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช ) it’s the opposite: education became irrelevant, and political preference depends only on income (perhaps because they are wealthy, egalitarian countries?).

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น hasn’t changed like the other countries: there the Right is still supported mostly by educated (and rich) voters. (NB: in the 50’s and 60’s, Portugal was a dictatorship).

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น is the rare case where leftist parties ended up being the parties of the richest segment of the population. I wouldn’t read too much into this, though, as the political landscape there during the last decade or two has been a populist mess.

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ is the country where education and income tell you the least about political preferences! There’s still the secular correlation โ€œhigh income โ†” right wingโ€, but it’s very weak today. (NB: in the 50’s and 60’s, Spain was also a dictatorship).

Who can recommend a cool instance about life science and biotech news and innovations? Mostly I'm interested in genomics and bioinformatics but also just biomedicine and biotech in general.

The way they serve carbonara in this restaurant is amazing hehe
