“Capillary electrophoresis” seems to bridge liquid property and particle size and shape properties, electric properties of icons, and separates molecules from saliva or DNA. The one dimensional train of ions down a physical tube (capillary tube) is fascinating to me so I made this summary with icons to help me understand it better.

Ammonia + Rubbing Alcohol + Hydrogen peroxide would be fine. Chlorine and hydrogen peroxide is ok – just oxygen plus oxygen although I don’t see the point and I don’t know if Rubbing alcohol is compatible with chlorine — I don’t like the thought of having thinner carrier molecules with a heavy oxygenating substance. Rubbing alcohol and peroxide is ok, so long as it’s weak peroxide like drugstore. Probably would help it penetrate into oily surfaces a little better. But drano doesn’t get to play with anybody else. Chrorine and ammonia do not get to play together unless you’re a big company making ammonia quat (which is chlorine and ammonia already mixed a certain way and surprisingly safe and used for everything but never the household ones. Good lord. Seeing it all in one sentence together and I had to break it apart. As far as Mr Steel Wool goes? He’ll rust in the chlorine or the peroxide from the oxygen they make. The drano would probably set him on fire – I don’t remember what’s in drano but it scares me. And yes, I made Steel wool have a gender.

Somebody’s list of drawbacks for topic extraction using Latent Dirichlet Allocation reads like a list of reasons why I like it: You cannot influence the topics that show up. You can tweak parameters and hope but you can’t influence it directly. Main disadvantages of LDA Lots of fine-tuning If LDA is fast to run, it will give you some trouble to get good results with it. That’s why knowing in advance how to fine-tune it will really help you. It needs human interpretation Topics are found by a machine. A human needs to label them in order to present the results to non-experts people. You cannot influence topics Knowing that some of your documents talk about a topic you know, and not finding it in the topics found by LDA will definitely be frustrating. And there’s no way to say to the model that some words should belong together. You have to sit and wait for the LDA to give you what you want.

His career for 8 years before this was being steeped in everything having to do with voting laws, rules and regulations. Someone who is clever can make intentions secondary effects and not “in the text” to allow people like yourself (their defenders) to say “But it’s not technically written there” while it has the exact effect they want. Plausible deniability. Gets them out of trouble and people make excuses on their behalf.

Not hanging around medieval philosophy for too long, but Genus differentia is fascinating in that a) “Genus + differentia = definition” b) Genus we now call “is a” Differentia we now call “has a” c) Hypostatic abstraction is a formal definition of how to translate between the two. d) this is a common issue programmers and database makers face. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genus–differentia_definition
