🤦♂️ If the parameters in the log-likelihood function in the test dataset aren't calculated from the training dataset then your log likelihood calculation won't work.
I think this means that for a hierarchical model with grouped folds, this means, for example, that if you calculate SiteA parameter with the training data and then test with SiteB data, you gotta use the superpopulation Site param, not the specific Site param.
Good joint response to latest Canadian government copyright consultation from CARL-ABRC & CFLA-FCAB. Much to like in its recommendations & that it sheds light on more than just the short-sighted term extension imposed by CUSMA (NAFTA) https://www.carl-abrc.ca/news/joint-response-to-consultation-on-copyright-term-extension/
This is a very very important paper about heritability and I need every journalist who writes about genetics to read and understand it.
I didn't sleep well last night, but made a great graph today and worked in my garden.
Tomorrow I'm going to figure out how to implement k-fold cross validation since the answer to my question about reloo on the stan forums was basically "re-implement these portions of the rstanarm package to work with your model" at which point the extra time cost of learning and doing k-fold is worth it.

Vik Sohonie: "Too often we forget that the most defining event of the 20th century was not World War II or the Cold War, but the liberation of billions in Asia and Africa between the 1950s and 1980s as citizens of almost 100 new-born countries."

bookstore surprises, tiny lewd
As a young and horny STEM undergrad, I picked up The History of Sexuality in the university bookstore. It didn't take me long to realize this book wasn't going to be what I thought it was, but too late! #foucault had already sucked me in.
Now I'm helping teach ecology students Griffith's Queer Theory for Lichens https://currents.journals.yorku.ca/index.php/currents/article/view/40249 (thanks again @lichen for putting this in my tl.
I like the direction my life is going. Let's read widely curiously, joyously!
The Victorian era was whiplash for western political theory. Before the Victorian era when political theory took a hard turn away from emotion you had the Scottish Enlightenment talking about how moral sentiment was essential to politics. Adam Smith wrote about that!
Locke said happiness is property, which shows how much emotions were a part of all discussions of politics.
The 18th century revolved and focused on emotions and how to express them Well - a deep belief that we naturally care 1/
