admin [Bias / Inequality]
Line 1: Line 1:
 +===== Air Conditioning =====
 +Really only need it for a few occasional days in the summer. Window AC units is most efficient, since the condenser motor is outside. However, can run a two host portable air conditioner inside and can additional cover some holes...
 +  * https://pmarks.net/ac/
 +
 +
 +===== Bias / Inequality =====
 +When wage gap inequality is presented, unfortunately not explicitly corrected for years of experience.
 +
 +
 +AI system bias. I feel like I can just do a quick math formula with bayes' rule and see the difference between bad bias and good, what people are talking about / trying to do.
 +  * Popular example is COMPAS tool https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COMPAS_(software) or Amazon pre-screening algorithm.
 +    * Rebuttal to badness of COMPAS tool is here, but didn't finish it. http://www.crj.org/assets/2017/07/9_Machine_bias_rejoinder.pdf
 +
 +  * "Statistics" / unbiased: "Of these 1000 people, which are more likely to **be** programmers". Ok to say "white males" or whatever with no other features.
 +  * Bias: "Of these 1000 people, which are likely to **become** programmers". Anyone can really become programmers, so intuitively a better predictor of this would be whether they like thinking and problem-solving rather than their gender or skin color.
 +
 +===== Power tool replacement switches =====
 +https://store.eurtonelectric.com/powertoolswitches.aspx
 +
 +But might also work to get a variable speed foot pedal. Depends on device, etc. Might need to downgrade to a momentary switch pedal instead.
 +
 +===== Hillsboro Weather =====
 +Webcam: https://www.cohovideofeed.com/mjpg/khio31/video.mjpg?user=flykhio&pw=apple32
 +
 +Weather station: https://www.pwsweather.com/station/pws/KHIONET
 +
 +===== Amazon Returns / Refunds =====
 +Somehow one item was returned, but another not?! Gave to UPS store, so don't have clear receipt. Urgh. 
 +
 +Seems like it's a recurring issue, even with a UPS tracking code! Somehow the customer is charged twice for this?
 +https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Li_SvpbCn94J:https://sellercentral.amazon.com/forums/t/customer-return-lost-in-transit-on-the-way-back-to-us-used-amazon-generated-ups-label/544161+&cd=11&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us
 +
 +Amazon just said over support chat (our error, don't worry about it..)?! Weird.
 +
 +===== Bird Sounds =====
 +Can search Cornell Ornithology spectrograms online. https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?mr=M6TO7&behaviors=s&region=Skamania,%20Washington,%20United%20States%20(US)&regionCode=US-WA-059
 +
 +===== Gorge ===== 
 +==== Waterfalls ====
 +Would like to check out Moffett or Elowah Falls. They looked cool from the Washington side, not sure if they are visible from the highway on the Oregon side
 +==== Bird Calls ====
 +Like Hooded Warbler (http://northwestbirding.com/BirdSongs/Recordings/hooded_warbler_skamania_county_07-06-13.mp3) and Hermit Thrush (), but those weren't it.
 +
 +Nashville warbler is cool too.
 +
 +Swainson's Thrush! 
 +  * http://northwestbirding.com/BirdSongs/Recordings/swainsons_thrush_RNWR_06-29-12.mp3
 +  * https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?taxonCode=swathr&q=Swainson%27s%20Thrush%20-%20Catharus%20ustulatus
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Maxis =====
 +Very interesting story of Maxis Business games. SimRefinery is one: https://obscuritory.com/sim/simrefinery-recovered/
 +
 +But there are others (https://obscuritory.com/sim/when-simcity-got-serious/), including this gem.
 +

 +
 +
 +===== Re-paving street asphalt =====
 +Called someone already for sealcoat.
 +
 +Maybe call Leggett Asphalt as they had good Angie's List review?
 +
 +
 +  * Private streets: https://www.co.washington.or.us/LUT/Divisions/LongRangePlanning/Publications/upload/409_112715.pdf
 +
 +Maybe contact Land Use and Transportation department? https://www.co.washington.or.us/LUT/Divisions/Engineering/ConsultantResources/road-design-standards.cfm
 +
 +
 +The area is 6K square feet
 +^ Name ^ Price ^ Looks like ^ Intent ^
 +| Sealcoat | $.14 - $.35 / sqft | "paint" | Low speeds / infrequent wear |
 +| Slurry seal | $.47 - $.78 / sqft | Goop + large particles | High speeds / wear |
 +| Resurface / Milling | $1-3 / sqft | Grind off top layer and redo | |
 +
 +==== Contractor stuff ====
 +1900 with seal, with crack fill. Patch for section 1200. 
 +
 +  * What other jobs have you done that I can inspect?
 +  * How are you going to solve the problem?
 +  * Good contractors say: "In order for this to be a good job that lasts, you need to do ____________ ____________ ______________ and ___________."
 +  * "I am picky, how can you make sure I'm happy?___________"
 +
 +
 +A good chunk of the road has moss on it. We can do the prep work for this ourselves of cleaning it off!
 +
 +If just sealcoating is needed, it is potentially something we can do ourselves. Save on labor costs. However, I doubt that is all that is needed.
 +  * Need to repair cracks too. Some ideas of estimated costs: https://www.homeadvisor.com/cost/landscape/seal-asphalt-paving/
 +
 +How much will sealcoating extend the life of the asphalt?
 +
 +ORPIN search has some companies that were used: http://orpin.oregon.gov/open.dll/open?sessionID=1062150558
 +
 +===== Physical Mute button =====
 +Laptop keyboard has it, but is hidden in setup. Would like to use earbuds button, but seems like laptop doesn't respond to it / have full TRRS connector?
 +
 +AutoHotKey doesn't seem to have support. <del>has support: https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/109687-can-you-please-make-this-script-for-me-muteunmute-mic-with-f7, try using the SoundSet api first: https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/SoundSet.htm</del>
 +
 +
 +===== Jobs for Kids =====
 +Assembling helmet kit. Gotta finish that...
 +
 +Selling stuff on Craiglist. Mowing lawn.
 +
 +
 +===== Fusion 360 notes =====
 +"Thicken" is how you make stuff thicker.
 +
 +Not sure why I lost my helmet part.
 +
 +
 +===== Towing with a Car =====
 +Hard on transmission due to inefficiency of torque converter at low RPMs (generates lots of heat). Great explanation: https://mechanics.stackexchange.com/questions/53332/how-to-prevent-automatic-transmission-damage-when-towing-a-heavy-load-without-th
