Chicken red sauce pasta

This recipe is a bit of a cheat, because I use pre-made sauce, but as I also add some fresh onion and tomato, it's only semi-cheat :). What you need: pasta salt pre-made tomato sauce (I use roasted garlic sauce) onions (cut to small pieces) tomatoes (cut to small pieces) chicken breast (cut to small pieces) garlic powder pepper olive oil You cook pasta for 6-7 minutes in water with salt till al dente or as your package says and then drain it and let it sit while you make the sauce. Start with olive oil and onions, once onions are golden, add chicken, once chicken is half through cooked add tomatoes and add salt and pepper and garlic powder. Once it's all ready, add the pre-made tomato sauce and let it sit together for a bit longer on the heat. Take off the heat, mix up with pasta and serve on a plate. Also, chicken breast is only optional, depending if you need some less fatty protein in your food. You can sprinkle with some cheese, but that's again optional. It should tast

PyOpenCL - quick integration of C++ OpenCL code with python

I was quite positively surprised how easy it is to call C++ OpenCL 's APIs from python and how simple it is to code with PyOpenCL . I tried PyOpenCL a while back, but it obviously got improved and is now simpler than ever. While I did not test out its performance, the resulting code runs fast enough so I didn't feel the need to check how it's performing in comparison with pure C++ OpenCL code. Naturally, I wanted to test out Netflix competition  (2009). The winning algorithm was blending a lot of different algorithms, which is not so great as in such case code can get quite messy and maintenance of such code can become quite painful. I would also prefer one simple algorithm instead of blending of many. Blending of many algorithms probably means that we did not really figure out perfect model. While competition is over, research never ends . To make it somewhat fair inline with the competition, I removed "probe set" from the training data as grand prize set for tes

If you criticize China, don't forget to criticize SpaceX as well...

News #1 : CNN:  NASA criticizes China's handling of rocket re-entry as debris lands near Maldives "Spacefaring nations must minimize the risks to people and property on Earth of re-entries of space objects and maximize transparency regarding those operations," said NASA Administrator Sen. Bill Nelson in a statement released on the space agency's website Sunday. "China is failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris," he added. How it's almost supposed to be done. News #2 : NPR:  China Says Most Rocket Debris Burned Up During Reentry Harvard astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell , who tracked the tumbling rocket part, said on Twitter, "An ocean reentry was always statistically the most likely. It appears China won its gamble... But it was still reckless." In March, debris from a Falcon 9 rocket launched by U.S. aeronautics company SpaceX fell to Earth in Washington and on the Oregon coast. Where are harsher words for SpaceX? [
