"This is still my role in the community. We have consensus. We have democracy. We have this and that. But we still have a little bit of constitutional monarchy. […] If a bunch of Nazis come and try to take over the site, I’ll just ban them. That’s easy.
Do our current existing rules allow us to do that? Well, no; other than the rule that says “, unless Jimbo…” whatever."

"African elephants (Loxodonta africana) are listening to us. The pachyderms can tell certain human languages apart and even determine our gender, relative age, and whether we’re a threat, according to a new study. The work illustrates how elephants can sometimes protect themselves from human actions."

"DAWN does require genes to be connected in the adjacency matrix. Yet expression modules can create artificial boundaries that separate some gene clusters. For this reason we used four different modular representations of the gene expression network in DAWN. When genes are selected as rASD genes, closer inspection reveals that they typically share a module with most (or all) of their top 20 nearest neighbors for all representations. Some genes, however, appear as rASD genes for only one representation and are often separated from several of their nearest neighbors for the other representations. The rASD gene SHANK2 provides a good example. In periods 4–6 PFC-MSC, SHANK2 was in a module with four other rASD genes for one representation of the network data and was identiﬁed as an rASD gene; for the other representation, however, it was in a module with no other connecting rASD genes and was not detected. For this reason we believe it is essential to use multiple modular representations of the gene co-expression network."
