Patterson, Scholastic team up on new literacy initiative
With a donation of $1.5 million from author James Patterson, Scholastic Book Clubs has launched “The United States of Readers, ” a classroom program designed to address literacy inequity
Scholastic announced Monday that United States of Readers will help bring books to 32000 kids nationwide, grades K-8, from low-income families.
“In so many communities around the country even our affordable offerings are out of reach for some families, and teachers are having to pay for the books themselves, ” Judy Newman, president and “Reader-in-Chief” of Scholastic Book Clubs, said in a statement. “We knew we needed to come up with an alternative to our tried and true model, because every child needs to be able to choose and own books, and see themselves as a reader! The United States of Readers does just that.”
Patterson, one of the world’s bestselling novelists, has already donated more than $10 million to teachers and students through Scholastic.
“I’ve been working my entire career to get kids reading because I believe that illiteracy is one of the biggest challenges our country faces, ” he said in a statement. “And in many cases, kids simply need access to books — and especially books they want to read — to fall in love with reading, characters, and stories. Through my partnership with Scholastic these past seven years, we’ve made some great strides to do that. And I’m particularly excited about this new program as it will bring books to those schools and communities that need them the most, and ones that we haven’t served before.”

2021.09.28 09:55 Pruple_hunter8174 stickerbombed my laptop yesterday, but the stickers pop out. How do I fix it? (Scissors don’t work, it’s too thin)
2021.09.28 09:55 Cheesedoodles02 Sister won’t stop masterbating while we share a bed?? Please help me?!?!?!?
Okay so for context: I am 16F and my sister is 13F and we have to share a bed/room because her room has been taken over by mold and the landlords are taking forever to get to fixing it (we’ve had to share a room for 6 months now)
For the past few weeks I’ve noticed that she’ll randomly start shaking and breathing heavily under the blankets and I’ll hear other weird sounds and I’ve come to the conclusion that she’s 100% masterbating within 2 feet of me. I’m extremely uncomfortable and don’t know how to get her to stop without making things awkward. And I’m pretty sure she knows I’m awake while doing it. The worst part is having the knowledge that she never washes her hands afterwards. I want to die.
Once or twice a week she’ll leave to visit her dad for the night so I get a single night to do my own thing (because I have some god forsaken respect for myself and other people like what the fuck) I’m so tired of having to share a room.
Tonight she’s gone so I had a chance to really think and I literally cannot sleep at all I just can’t get over how fucking gross it is to have to sit through it and pretend I can’t see it hear anything. And since online is a good place to be anonymous I’ll even admit that I cried earlier for at least 30 minutes.
I’m seriously thinking about telling our mom but I know it would be an awkward convo to say the least and she might not even believe me.
Please help me idk what to do.

2021.09.28 09:55 Short_Barnacle_4090 On-site paid study by Applause/uTest - Test a voice controlled device ($30 per hour)
I'm Saranya and I work in the Community Management of a testing company based in Massachusetts called Applause (www.applause.com), and we have a community of testers (www.utest.com) where we train people and leverage them for the testing cycles all over the world.
Applause is starting a huge project where hundreds of people will be needed to test a voice-controlled device yet to be released to the public. This project belongs to one of the biggest social media platforms in the world.
Testers will have to say some phrases and also perform exercises using the device. This on-site project will take place in New York City/US, Phoenix (Arizona)/US, Toronto/CAN, Paris/FRA, Madrid/SPA, and London/UK. The payout is $30 per hour and there will be 2 kinds of testing: one is up to 3 hours and other up to 7 hours of testing.
All who can go on-site to the cities aforementioned are invited to participate.
You can sign up using the following links:
New York City - https://www.utest.com/c-signup/onsite-voice-exercise-nyc
Phoenix - https://www.utest.com/c-signup/onsite-voice-exercise-phoenix-az
Toronto - https://www.utest.com/signup/onsite-voice-exercise-toronto-can

Madrid - https://www.utest.com/c-signup/onsite-voice-exercise-madrid
London - https://www.utest.com/c-signup/onsite-voice-exercise-london-uk
You can send me a direct message or go to our official subreddit at UTEST and message the moderators if you have any doubts about this project.
Thank you for your attention! 😊

Do you guys think that both the aforementioned countries be divided among the union?
I mean they were responsible for the New World War. If they had been more diplomatic GVE may not have started the war and replaced peaceful and careful politicians with politicians bent on conquering everyone indiscriminately.
Another point is most of their leaders are dead. It will make a power vacuum in the two countries. They are also not likely to revolt as their primary focus is surviving and having a properly functioning society.

2021.09.28 09:55 compution Ok so, I'm not asking "are skinwalkers in x" but I am curious as to whether this can be classed as a skinwalker
note: all of this is stuff I have been told or found online so please clear up any points that might not be bulletproof or actual fact. I'm also going to refer to the creatures as either entity or creature because I can't spell the names (cos I'm dumb)
I live in Australia and in Indigenous culture there are entities that behave almost identically to skinwalkers, and I'm not going to try and spell it, the whole uncanny animalistic look, janky movement and so on. These creatures will, once triggered, will pursue their target till either madness, in which the prey becomes one of the entities, or until they can bait the target out between 10pm-6am this will result in the person being taken. The longer the target survives the more aggressive the entity becomes. And whilst unable to enter the house itself, it is able to interact with objects inside the building.
Though to my knowledge, the main differences is that most are 'sealed' into various cultural no-go zones, and eye contact, rather than just inducing fear in the subject, it also allows the entity to pursue its chosen contact regardless of their location. Though you can avoid them by not making eye contact and they won't actively try to, people's eyes are drawn to the creature's eyes. The skinwalkers will also appear slightly different depending on the person, though only things like what animal it is, its height, or the colour of its eyes.
A few others interesting points that I have found is that: 1. The creatures will almost always be near old mineshafts, hillside caves, chasms and the like, anywhere that has a natural enclosed area, and 2. There will be absolutely no animals living or moving around within roughly 500m of the entity's chosen den/lair.

2021.09.28 09:55 Medium_Ad_3555 [D] Inference cost optimization of complex ML pipelines
I am running a CV pipeline with shared state and if-else conditional logic of a bunch of tf models based on ImageNet + Yolo. Since I am using real-time data (images/chunks of video) it's not a good use case for using GPU instances. All the inference/prediction is hosted on self-managed CPU-based C4. EC2 instances.
There are tradeoffs between running it as a monolithic pipeline (7 models per service) vs microservice deployment (1 model per service). Likewise, this pipeline has conditional activation of certain heavy, low fps models which consumes a bunch of CPU. The challenge is to balance IO operations (input file downloads) vs CPU heavy lifting.
What I'm struggling with is finding the optimal instance and configuration for maximum utilization of CPU/IO and decent latency.
Does anyone have recommendations for libraries/frameworks/articles for these types of problems?
