Wong said he didn't have any spare leave and was back at work giving a presentation on Friday after a night without sleep. He said viewing the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, remained on his bucket list. The Northern Lights are more famous in part because the northern polar region has more inhabited land. But the Southern Lights put on a similar show. Both are caused by particles from the sun interacting with the Earth's magnetic field. Griffin said the plane traveled to more than 60 degrees latitude south and offered about five hours viewing time. He said he chose a day close to the equinox and when the moon phase would allow maximum darkness. One seat cost 2,000 New Zealand dollars ($1,400) or double that for business class. Griffin said he's thinking about another trip next year. Because the Boeing 767 is being decommissioned and the trip proved so popular, he said he may seek a larger jet.

(Left) The dense sequence of probabilities from our DNN for the occurrence over time of single sound category in a video. (Center) Binarized segments based on the modified Viterbi algorithm. (Right) The duration-based filter removes segments that are shorter in duration than desired for the class. A classification-based system such as this one will certainly have some errors, and needs to be able to trade off false positives against missed detections as per the product goals. For example, due to the weak labels in the training dataset, the model was often confused between events that tended to co-occur. For example, a segment labeledlaugh” would usually contain both speech and laughter and the model for “laugh” would have a hard time distinguishing them in test data. In our system, we allow further restrictions based on time spent in the ON state (i.

This Republican is very much against voter fraud…except when he does it. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Former Colorado Republican party chairman Steve Curtis, 57, has been charged with voter fraud and forgery, prosecutors say. Curtis, an AM radio talk show host, appeared Tuesday in Weld County District Court, where he was advised that he faces two counts in the case: forgery, a Class 5 felony, and misdemeanor voter fraud.

The car we’ll see wont be a production version, more a near production-ready concept, but the final version shouldnt stray too far from it.
