The British government did this back in 1714 with the Longitude Prize, to be awarded to the first person who could develop a way for a seagoing ship to measure longitude. The prize was won not by a navigator or ship captain the class of experts who had been trying and failing to discover a solution but by a clock maker named John Harrison. The 25 year old Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly nonstop from New York to Paris in 1927 in order to win a contest established by a hotelier named Raymond Orteig.
“Few other nations have so well looked after their past cathedrals, chteaux and what have you so that it’s present in the present,” says Anthony. “Then again, few other nations, also, are so little talented in presenting this past in an engrossing, or even interesting, manner. But sites like the Loire chteaux or Mont St Michel are strong enough to resist even the French drive to crashing historical tedium.
Took long to accept your criticism. I took long to look at myself in the mirror and become a new man, Neymar said. Fell, but only who falls can pick himself up. Note how fragile floating point reproducibility is because of non associativity. It very unlikely that 2 independent implementations would perform all the arithmetic operations for a matrix multiply in equivalent orders. In fact, the same implementation will often produce slightly different results when running on different hardware because it will split up the problem onto a different number of cores.
Ive been here for a year and lived in many big cities before (Seattle, NYC, Boston, Seoul, San Antonio, London) and I feel like people watch out for eachother a lot more than other cities. Some guy outside a cta stop warned me not to step in a big pile of shit in the stairway. People offer to give up their seats on the subway more often than other cities.
The run didn’t start to become difficult until somewhere in the second mile. Mine and Mike’s breathing became laboured but the pace was still good at 6:24 minutes per mile and I knew I had just a little more to go. The triangle part of the course was approaching and this is historically where I lose a lot of time, either being held up by other runners or simply losing pace by a few seconds.
Within the city, right off High Street, is a lovely park; inside the park is a grand rose garden filled with roses, with a gazebo, with a perennial garden, and an herb garden as well. The height of rose season in June is the best time to visit, but with the wooded surroundings and the other gardens, it is a peaceful and beautiful any time of year. It is a gem of a garden and isn’t to be missed, whether it is high season for roses or not.
