How Moscow lost Riyadh in 1938 | Russia | Al Jazeera
By the end of 1925, Ibn Saud controlled Jeddah, and in February 1926 he declared himself King of Hejaz and Sultan of Nejd. As soon as the Soviet mission learned the news, Khakimov did what ultimately earned him the respect and friendship of Ibn Saud. On February 16, Karim Khakimov drove his personal car mounted with a Soviet flag through gunfire from Jeddah to Ibn Saud's residence in the desert to hand over a formal note recognising his status as the king. The Soviet Union was the first state to recognise his new title...King Abdulaziz was outraged at the news that the two Soviet diplomats whom he considered his friends were killed. Two months after Khakimov was executed in Moscow, American geologists discovered the world's largest deposits of crude oil in Dhahran // whoops!

What-If Tool
Building effective machine learning systems means asking a lot of questions. It's not enough to train a model and walk away. Instead, good practitioners act as detectives, probing to understand their model better.

But answering these kinds of questions isn't easy. Probing "what if" scenarios often means writing custom, one-off code to analyze a specific model. Not only is this process inefficient, it makes it hard for non-programmers to participate in the process of shaping and improving machine learning models. For us, making it easier for a broad set of people to examine, evaluate, and debug machine learning systems is a key concern.

That's why we built the What-If Tool. Built into the open-source TensorBoard web application - a standard part of the TensorFlow platform - the tool allows users to analyze an machine learning model without the need for writing any further code. Given pointers to a TensorFlow model and a dataset, the What-If Tool offers an interactive visual interface for exploring model results.

Driven - Siddha Performance
world class >>> A critical minimum of “liking,” coupled with a critical minimum of talent.

...

What interests me more is Doing The Least, while Getting The Most.

...

You see, hard work is largely an anxiety. It is an adherence to a societal tenet. It is work for work’s sake.

Understand this Truth: The reason it takes 15 years to become World Class at something is because for 14 of those years you were doing it all wrong.

...

Because I learned long ago that human beings are lazy and uninspiring creatures. They rehash the derivative. They propagate the commonplace. And they have Zero interest in The Truth. This is why I have a visceral disdain and rampant disrespect for Society and The Masses. To me, they are Sub-human. They are filler. They are a waste of precious Oxygen.

The Place You So Desperately Want To Go - Siddha Performance
I will only say this, and I will say it with softness in my voice and sincerity in my heart:

What If There Was A Way Out Of All This?

Not happiness. Not meditation. Not mindfulness. Not positive thinking. Not yoga. Not retreats. Not motivation. Not prayer. Not incense. Not gratitude. Not anything that the feel-good, cosmetic, trite, insincere, derivative, impotent, and unoriginal society has told you.

...

If life has taught me anything, it is that there are no coincidences.

There is a cosmic and universal reason that I’ve spoken these words.

And more importantly, there is a cosmic and universal reason that of the 7.5 Billion people on Earth, I just happened to be speaking these words to YOU.
