Family Weekend at Dartmouth is a time where the parents and supporters of seniors and freshmen ('23s and '26s this year, respectively) are invited to campus and treated to an array of activities, talks, open houses, shows, meals, and, most of all, time to spend with their students.
Since you, the reader, may be involved in a Dartmouth Family Weekend of your own in the future, I've decided to write about my experience this year, to give you an idea of what you could be up to this time next year!
We built this program with your busy lifestyle in mind. We recognize you have existing career and family responsibilities. The Evening and Weekend Program offers flexibility which allows you to continue your education while balancing all other aspects of your life.
Despite this very high-level condemnation, people kept using Write-Host, precisely because it doesn't go to the output stream. Write-Host is eco-friendly, because it doesn't pollute the output stream.
In its own sad way, Write-Host solves this problem. In this version, I replaced Write-Output with Write-Host. Now this function writes a process object and a string, but only the process object is written to the output stream. Typically, the user sees the string, but it's not saved in the variable or passed down the pipeline.
Write-Host also writes InformationRecord objects to the information stream, but it is not affected by the $InformationPreference variable or the InformationAction common parameter. (Windows PowerShell 5.0 is still in preview, so this might change.)
Because they write to the information stream (stream #6), you can redirect the output of Write-Host and Write-Information to a file. (Notice that redirecting host output suppresses it. Windows PowerShell 5.0 is still in preview, so this might change.)
Now if someone was to write a function, such as Get-PowerShellProcess (and you still should never do this), the information is suppressed by default and the end-user could display the information without polluting the output stream. (I had to enable cmdlet binding to get the common parameters.)

Among some of the big events you can ride free to this weekend: USC football at the Coliseum on Saturday night, Rams-Cowboys at SoFi on Sunday, CicLAvia in downtown L.A. on Sunday and the LAFC-Nashville match on Sunday at Banc of California Stadium in Exposition Park.
We cannot thank enough the residents and businesses along the rail line for their patience, support and oversight of this project. In the days and decades ahead, the K Line will carry tens of millions of people. Not only will the rail line better connect our region, but it will better our region to the world via LAX.
Size and level of detail of the underlying database and meticulous statistical analysis are the defining characteristics of our study. Some previous studies were smaller in size, some had to use administrative data for adjustment purposes only, and none were able to incorporate effects such as patient discharge from intensive care units into their analyses. Our study benefits greatly from the use of the well-established SAPS3 risk score and the Fine and Gray-model for sub-distribution hazards, a statistical model that was not used in this scenario before.
This weekend was a very special one to me that created tremendous emotion within me and left me with a wonderful forever memory. I traveled to visit my grandmother in Lomza, Poland. Lomza is a small city a bit over an hour from Warsaw, the capital of Poland. I rarely have the occasion to see my babcia (polish word for grandmother) since we live across the Atlantic from each other, so when I asked her if I could visit her for the holiday weekend it sparked tremendous happiness within both of us. I have only had the chance to visit Poland in the summer months in the past, so I knew that this would be probably one of my only opportunities to celebrate of my passed family.
Kasia KolcStudent, UConn School of BusinessKasia Kolc is a senior studying Accounting. She is writing this blog as part of her scholarship from the Global Business Programs Office. Kasia interned at PwC, a Big 4 public accounting firm, this past summer. She had also interned in Wealth Management at Merrill Lynch and Janney Montgomery Scott. A fun fact about Kasia is that she was a girl scout in the Polish Scouting Organization for 10 years.View Posts
It is important to note that this blog does not address the circumstances that lead parents to work nonstandard schedules. However, SIPP data do allow us to see that many children live with a parent who works a nonstandard schedule.
The estimates presented in this blog are subject to sampling and nonsampling error. For more information, visit the SIPP sampling page. For more information about families with a parent working nonstandard hours, see this Census working paper on the same topic.
Chapter 2 in Ray Tracing in One Weekend introduce a vector class that can be used on both the CPU & GPU. To allow this, we annotate all of the vec3 class member functions with __host__ __device__ keywords so we can execute them on the GPU and CPU.
Given this class, you can update your main.cu code to access an FB made up of vec3 instead of 3 floats, similar to the C++ code. The end result shown in figure 2 should still look like figure 1. See the Chapter 2 reference implementation if you have any troubles.
We need to be careful to check for double precision code. Current GPUs run fastest when they do calculations in single precision. Double precision calculations can be several times slower on some GPUs. For example, this may look like a single precision calculation:
We initialize rand_state for every thread. For performance measurement, I wanted to be able to separate the time for random initialization from the time it takes to do the rendering, so I made this a separate kernel. You might also choose to do this initialization at the start of your render kernel.
And finally, here is my code for the final chapter, Chapter 12. At this point, I hope you take a moment to compare the speedup from C++ to CUDA. My personal machine with a 6-core i7 takes about 90 seconds to render the C++ image. To give some concrete examples for the speedup you might see, on a Geforce GTX 1070, this runs in 6.7 seconds for a 13x speedup. Using a new GeForce RTX 2080, the image renders in just 4.7 seconds for a 19x speedup! What speedup do you see When you try on your machine, be sure to try a range of thread block sizes (tx and ty in main.cu) to see if that helps your performance.
I would like to thank Mark Harris, Peter Shirley, Pawel Tabaszewski and Loyd Case for their helpful insights and encouragement in creating this post. I would also like to thank github user pfranz for making the first github repo with a tag for each chapter which was very handy.
As a political junkie, I could not have been more excited for this event. Miller, the longtime Harvard law professor who has, on occasion, flooded even the Supreme Court with laughter, is one of our most legendary graduates. And to throw in the past Dean of the School of Law at Washington University in St. Louis, Seligman, who himself is a leading authority on American securities law, along with a sitting semi-retired federal judge, I can think of few panels that rival this one. Of course, this event squarely pertained to my passions.
Take a sail on a catamaran through the Indian River Lagoon! This unique experience is a leisurely way to explore the Intracoastal waterway. Experienced and knowledgable captains will teach you all about the dolphins, manatees and birds you'll see, they will even let you take the helm for an impromptu sailing lesson. Perfect for special occasions like rocket launches or family reunions, or even just everyday occurrences like a Space Coast sunset, this is a tour you'll remember forever!

The FDA VRBPAC (Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee) met this weekto discuss the composition of vaccines going forward. In particular, should weconsolidate on a series of bivalent shots instead of the current mixture of old and new
A couple days ago, commenting atTheZvi,I blithely averaged efficacies from the early and late cohorts of the molnupiravir trial. Fellowcommenter Thomas pointed out that this is not correct! This post is a mea culpa and alesson to myself on How to Do It Right.
From time to time, we make predictions here. Two of them were: high probability ofCOVID-19 vaccine boosters by fall 2021, and mRNA vaccines will dramatically change thefuture of vaccines. Guess what happened this week
