Book cover for Numsense! Data Science for the Layman: No Math Added
One way to keep a model’s overall complexity in check is to introduce a penalty parameter, in a step known as regularization. This new parameter penalizes any increase in a model’s complexity by artificially inflating prediction error, thus ...more

“When it comes to bicycling, short trips, close to home, are the lowest-hanging fruit. A quarter of all our daily travel is done within a mile of our homes. We do most of these short hops by car; less car-centric standards for neighborhood roads could easily make bicycling or walking a more attractive option. This need becomes especially clear when you know that these short local trips result in 60% of the pollution caused by our cars.”

“Teen drivers are more dangerous even than drivers in their eighties. And safety education, including showing teens gory movies of car crashes, has little effect.”

“The primary causes of unhappiness? Having a bad commute. If you have a job, the drive there is the most stressful thing you’ll do on any given day. And people with particularly long car commutes are more likely to be depressed, have a mental health breakdown, and even get divorced.”

“И да будет ведо­мо тем, у кого в обы­чае вос­тор­гать­ся недоз­во­лен­ной дер­зо­стью по отно­ше­нию к наде­лен­ным вер­хов­ною вла­стью, что и при дур­ных прин­цеп­сах могут суще­ст­во­вать выдаю­щи­е­ся мужи и что послу­ша­ние и скром­ность, если они соче­та­ют­ся с трудо­лю­би­ем и энер­ги­ей, достой­ны не мень­шей сла­вы, чем та, кото­рую мно­гие снис­ка­ли реши­тель­но­стью сво­его поведе­ния и сво­ею впе­чат­ля­ю­щей, но бес­по­лез­ной для государ­ства смер­тью.”

“The worst effects of breathing polluted air are experienced where it is densest: in traffic. Spending time on and near highways, freeways, and other busy roads is terrible for your health. How near is a question that is still being studied, but researchers believe that the effects are worst within either a fifth or a third of a mile. People in cars or buses are exposed to considerably more air pollution, perhaps because of, rather than despite, being in a closed space. People walking and bicycling on or next to roads breathe more air, but inhale somewhat less pollution; and cyclists have been found to have even less risk if they are on paths that are separated from the road.”
