I've started a machine learning project using TemsorFlow. The first thing I've learned is to start small, implement all the functionality and only then move to a real task.

As an experiment to use Spotify less often, I'll give a try as the default radio in my car.

A big plus is that I won't listen to the same music over and over again. The only worry I have is that I'll pay for the data about what I'm paying right now for Spotify.

It's also a good time to donate to somafm!

I start thinking of large IT companies as drug dealers. It really helps using social media less often.

Usually, a paper is mostly done once I get an appropriate plot to show the results. This time I feel I've came up with a good title, or at least a section name, that distills the argument.

I must be the only person ordering macchiato on my way to work. Every time I make the order, the reaction is yeap, macchiato, that's Dimitri.

I keep reading Sociolinguistics and language education. Today I've learned that, regarding the intercultural interaction, my view is much closer to discursive-constructionust perspective than sociostructural/rationalist.

Among many aspect, I see cultural diversity as an interactional resource, and I don't see it being hazardous, source of miscommunication.

The chapter on language and culture is as great as others in the book.

#SoyuzMS10 ballistic abort & consequences 

So what does this mean for science in space?
Well first of all while there are alternative vehicles that can deliver cargo to the ISS, there is currently no other crew-rate vehicle besides the Sojus. Due to the investigations about the recent problems (today's malfunction and the mysterious hole that was discovered a few weeks back) it is uncertain when the next Sojus will be allowed to launch.

#SoyuzMS10 balistic abort 

So as you might have heard something went wrong during the #SoyuzMS10 launch today. There was a malfunction during booster separation. The crew was able to use the launch escape system to get to safely back to ground. This was the first malfunction of this magnitude since 1983 (Sojus T-10-1) and the first malfunction directly during launch since 1975 (Sojus 18a).
