Making Sense of Alberta’s Equalization Referendum

An easy win in his silly equalization referendum on Oct. 18 might give Kenney a meaningless victory to tout as he tries to hang onto his job. How unfortunate for him that many of his opponents on both sides of the aisle have seized on the idea of using a No vote in the referendum as a way to show non-confidence in his leadership. Equalization Equalization is an increasingly controversial federal program, but there are many misconceptions about it. This federal program is supposed to be aimed at ensuring each province can “provide reasonably comparable levels of public services at reasonably comparable levels of taxation” as per sec. 36(2) of the Constitution. Our analysis will first provide a basic […] The equalization question asks whether a specific section of the Constitution Act — Canada’s “commitment to the principle of making equalization payments” — should be removed. We ... "Well, the short answer is no, in the sense that equalization is a program to help lower-income provinces raise revenue to deliver public services," said Tombe. "Alberta is, most of the time, really lucky to have a really strong ability to raise revenue. Should section 36(2) of the Constitution Act, 1982 – Parliament and the government of Canada’s commitment to the principle of making equalization payments – be removed from the constitution? According to the Canadian government, equalization payments are an unconditional transfer of funds by the federal government to a province with below ... In order to combat the high expense of collecting thousands of training images, image augmentation has been developed in order to generate training data from an existing dataset. Image Augmentation is the process of taking images that are already in a training dataset and manipulating them to create many altered versions of the same image. Half of Calgarians, third of Edmontonians support scrapping equalization payments: poll "There tends to be more of a sense of injustice with the relationship between the provincial government and ... Equalization in sound recording and reproduction is the process of adjusting the volume of different frequency bands within an audio signal.The circuit or equipment used to achieve this is called an equalizer.. Most hi-fi equipment uses relatively simple filters to make bass and treble adjustments. Graphic and parametric equalizers have much more flexibility in tailoring the frequency content ...

2021.10.18 02:20 seekeverything Don’t give up - Finally got my Solo.

I finally got my Solo License today! I just want to share that if you are failing or finding this hard, don’t give up. Do whatever it takes. I started off with PFF/AFF progression but it was a lot of pressure for me so I switched over to the Gradual Progression/IAD method. And yeah it took me 22 jumps to get to my solo, but I enjoyed every bit of the journey. I was just one of those people who couldn’t always relax and things didn’t come naturally to me but I stuck it out and made it to my solo. The season has come to an end here to Canada bit I can’t wait for the spring to get working on my A license!
I also want to say that I read so much about how amazing the skydiving community is, and truer words haven't been said! Initially I was very scared that I wouldn’t ‘fit in’ because quite honestly I am not the average person you’d see at a DZ learning to skydive. I know lots of different kind of people are in the sport, but to give context I am a female, wears a headscarf, doesn’t smoke, drink, and not the most extroverted person. I also didn't hang out much at the DZ outside of jumping. But almost everyone at the dz was always so welcoming and supportive!! The biggest thing I learnt is that this sport truly has some amazing and genuine people, all the instructors I had are some of the most encouraging and helpful people I've ever met!
I think the biggest downside of getting into this sport living in Canada is that winters will feel even longer than before.

For some reason a few times lately I will be sitting down or whatever, and I see about a couple dozen bright lights. The lights are almost like a twinkle (not sure how to describe it).

I’ve been using Broccoli for my daily fiber but after a recent constipation situation I’m thinking of changing to Psyllium husk. I don’t much enjoy Broccoli will psyllium and lettuce be enough to keep me moving regular or should I keep the Broccoli in my diet?

2021.10.18 02:19 smokyvisions Do ancestry and DNA really work the way we are told?

The title is somewhat misleading for the sake of brevity. Of course, it concerns the way the process was explained to me in my particular high school, and the way in which I may have misconstrued it in the years that have passed since then.
According to this model, each of us has two distinct strands of genetic material. When we have children, one of these strands from the respective pair of each parent is assigned at random to the child.
This seems too simple to me, considering that genealogical research often investigates similarities between segments of these strands in different individuals.
However, suppose we have n couples, which makes for a total of 4n strands (two for each partner in each couple), and each of these strands is unique. As this population reproduces, wouldn't each successive generation merely be a reshuffling of this set of unique, initial strands?
In that case, if two individuals from a successive generation had similar strands, then these similar strands would by default be identical copies of one another. Then we would expect research to focus on identifying identical strands between individuals, rather than just identical segments of strands.
Can this discrepancy be explained by mutation of DNA alone, or is there some other process at play here? I understand that assuming to find n couples with 4n truly unique strands is too idealistic. Any n couples are bound to have common genetic ancestors, though for each of them that common ancestral DNA would have gone through a variably unique history of gradual mutation.
Nonetheless, perhaps the allotment of parental DNA to the child is more complex than in the simple model that I was taught at school, in some manner relevant to the matter at hand?

2021.10.18 02:19 Uberj4ger Making the case that Yatoro is the MVP at this TI

Most 3k redditors only look at the flashy plays on Collapse and go "jeez this guy's the MVP".
Meanwhile Yatoro, 18 year old kid with balls of steel, getting picked different carry heroes with different playstyles and different approaches to the game, itemizing each game differently based on what he has to do in those games. Not fazed by bad starts or a weaker draft and just steadily looking for the W. Not uncomfortable being asked to play such a diverse hero pool (looking at you here Arteezy). Making potentially game losing/game winning big plays on the biggest stage in Dota 2 with the largest prize pool to date with millions of dollars on the line.
How many 18 year olds have that kind of mentality, that kind of resilience? How many position 1's this tournament play like this or allow drafts like this so as to give their team the flexibility to shine? How many position 1s itemize to solve team problems instead of just getting more core items? (Aghs on Naga, Refresher + Nullifier on PA to deal with tinker)
In the game of Dota we've seen unselfish position 2s and unselfish position 3s.
Unselfish position 1s? That's a rare breed.
Yatoro is MVP for me this TI although it's safe to be said that Team Spirit played so out of their mind that Collapse is a close 2nd.
Holy shit, CIS dota is looking hella interesting now, wonder if this team will keep growing.
