2023.03.22 23:48 cinemadad Crowd-Sourced 3D Map Project ( How would this work? Would it? Brainstorm with me )

Crowd-Sourced 3D Map Project ( How would this work? Would it? Brainstorm with me )
Looking to brainstorm an 3D scanning idea - approaches, feasibility, best applications, etc.
I saw this - erm - spinning fan?? - on top of a UPS truck today when an idea struck me.

I know I'm not the only person to think that "Google Earth" street view will eventually be 3D scans instead of these low-res, GoPro-like photos. It feels inevitable to me.

As far as I know, Google has dedicated cars and drivers that drive around and take these photos.

But what about a different, crowd-sourcing approach to 3D map-making. Imagine a wikipedia-like project where individuals volunteer to scan their neighborhoods and cities.

What if there was a basic 3D scanning device that was relatively cheap and could be sent out to people around the country to scan local areas ( Maybe there's even a phone-attachment that goes on top of a car and spins 360?? )

And maybe, eventually, there's a way to stitch together all these local maps into one interactive 3D Map of [ a town, a county, a state, a country, etc ]. It feels like a massive project, but it feels very very practical and possible to me.

What do you think? Is someone already doing this?

If so, where? And if not, how can it happen? What applications would be best to use? Would it have to be a new app all together?

2023.03.22 23:47 Fredselfish In Tulsa, not a single Starbucks is unionized. What the deal?

I saw this link
Shows a map to unionized stores. For me, I want to only support unionized ones. Yet when checking the map, only Oklahoma City has any unionized stores.
Why are none in Tulsa unionizing? Think they want to join after all, not like they treated any better here.

Letters of Recommendation
I won't numerically rate my LoRs because... just how would I do that?
Entrepreneurship Mentor (CEO): Had a very strong relationship with him, he provided and advanced a lot of my extracurricular opportunities and he was from the entrepreneurship incubator (gave me a scholarship to attend). He wrote letters for a few other students a year above me at the incubator and they were admitted to Harvard, JHU, Purdue, NYU Stern. Those other students say I was his favorite.
AP Phys Teacher: Well enough, I've known him for 4 years and he's well aware of my entrepreneurial activities and podcasting (actually had him on the podcast once). Generally on amicable terms, been good and ambitious student.
APUSH Teacher: Only takes 10 LOR requests a year, I requested mine a year in advance. Very good terms, probably one of best students in our APUSH class. Had out of class conversations that espoused my personality. Aware of my writing and my authorship.
Peer (for Darty): Co-founder in firm, went through a lot together at entrepreneurship incubator and later reconnected as mentors in same incubator. Read it myself and its quite professional for a peer rec.
UPenn: Not great, really didn't click. She was a doctor who was really questioning my want to go to big city Philly and asked me verbatim what I did for fun again (after my initial response of fall into Wikipedia rabbit holes and podcast) with a straight face. Never making that mistake again.
Duke: Pretty good, was able to make them laugh at end, had an engaging conversation about Duke entrepreneurship and leadership programs.
Princeton: Recent grad who was probably the best so far, she described me as a "gift to the world" (flattered) and she said she was impressed by my responses compared to other applicants. She said to update her on my decision in April.
Harvard: Would say it was good. Really stoic guy who was in President Clinton's cabinet, had an engaging conversation about journalism and the new media forces (Vox, ProPublica) and my ambition to do the same. Ended with a bit about him talking about imposter syndrome as his biggest dislike with his Harvard experience.
Stanford: Short (~40 min) where halfway through interview I became the interviewer. Talked a lot about her daughter who was a Stanford senior and the easily accessible small research grants. Apparently she welcomes the ~60-70 Stanford admitted students every year with a reception at her home.
Dartmouth: Really down to earth conversation with a guy, standard interview questions, he still sends me material and updates from Dartmouth here and there now based on things I said in our interview (like swim team changes, pitching opportunities). I also update him in April.
MIT: Fairly standard interview. Nothing really to note here, talked about my journalism and my view on media for the most part.
After being rejected by Penn, I think I went through maybe like 15 CA drafts in total but only the last two mattered. I applied to half my colleges with one CA draft (that I thought showed how I thought, albeit maybe not as personal as I wanted it). I ended up applying to all the colleges with deadlines 1/3/20 and after using my Harvard supp as my CA since a friend and a college counselor both read it, suggested no changes, and said it was my best work. All sups went through 2-4 drafts and were reviewed by either my friend or college counselor. I had half of them coming into Winter break then I crammed out the rest during break. I'm proud of my CA essays and most of my sups and have realized throughout all my revising and editing, that I lost a great deal of my own voice in the essays that I initially sent to Penn. Which is why I resolved to keep editing minimal and my original voice a priority in my later essays (and rewrote my CA).
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Additional Information:
In March, I was selected for a 12-person cohort in a career development program following my entrepreneurial activities where I was selected to participate in funded projects ranging from Harvard case studies and startups. This was discontinued owing to the COVID pandemic but will be resuming the latter half of my senior year.
I was interviewed by major news networks (November 2020) about the launch of the entrepreneurial incubator clubs chapters in the midst of COVID-19, interview expected to be in outlets like USNews and the like in February (Hopefully in time for RD)
I was invited to join the student council of a social science research program for high school students around the world, hosted by the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) on the basis of my journalism and the entrepreneurship incubator clubs program. This just began this February and am currently meeting with the director.
Final words:
I made a lot of mistakes back then but I won't deny I was and am happy with how I handled the college app process back then. Happy to answer any Qs - I chose Cornell at the end of the day and am now heavily involved the entrepreneurship/VC scene in uni.

2023.03.22 23:07 Notagelding I asked Chat GPT to write a script about Milton Keynes in the style of how He-man would speak and this is what it gave me...

HE-MAN, a powerful warrior from Eternia, stands in front of a large map of the British Isles. He points to a particular location.
HE-MAN: (Deep, commanding voice) "Behold, my friends, the land of Milton Keynes."
(Sudden dramatic pause)
"This place is not like any other. It is a city of adventure, of innovation, and of sheer power."
(He-Man flexes his biceps, revealing his immense strength)
"Here, the people live in harmony with the environment, and technology serves as their tool to make their lives easier."
(He-Man gestures towards the display screen, which shows images of green parks, modern buildings, and busy streets)
"The people of Milton Keynes are not afraid of progress. They embrace it, and they strive for excellence in everything they do."
(He-Man leans closer to the map, as if studying it intently)
"As a warrior, I admire their courage and their determination. They have built a city that stands as a testament to human innovation and creativity."
"Perhaps someday, I shall visit this great city, and meet its brave citizens face-to-face. I am sure they will be impressed by my strength and my sword."
(He-Man raises his sword victoriously, and the camera zooms out to reveal a thunderous applause from the Eternian court)

2023.03.22 21:54 Qeuzee "From the Ashes of the Union" (WIP)

Chapter 1
A rough start.
Our story begins in the 1990s, where unrest is growing in Europe, as the Soviet Union - a fierce and powerful superpower of the world, is starting to face trouble with its republics.
The Soviets have oppressed the people of its lands for many decades, sending them to gulags and taking from the land, whilst snuffing out potential thoughts for independence with heavy censorship of television and writing.
The people had enough of the Soviets oppressive dictatorship, and on the 11th of March, 1990, the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic became the first country to leave the Soviet Union, starting a chain reaction which would lead to the inevitable collapse of the once great nation.
One nation which had been especially inspired by this was the Lavinian SSR, a Soviet republic along the coast of the Baltic sea, bordering Finland to the north, and Estonia to the east, with their capital city being the historical capital of Russia, St.petersburg.
Due to this inspiration, they announced their own sovereignty and independence from the Soviet Union on the 5th of November, 1991, with the first few countries to recognize them being the Baltic states themselves - Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
As for the republics prior to them, their independence did not come easily, the Soviets put in extra effort into keeping the Lavins under their control, as their independence would mean them losing St.petersburg.
As the Soviets tanks rolled into Lavinia from the east, the world looked on timidly as their war machines crushed the unarmed protestors.
That is until the main people group of the eastern side of Lavinia intervened - The Anarchowens, who were Ukrainians that were forcefully taken from their homeland and placed into the cold wilderness of eastern Lavinia.
The Lavins along with the Anarchowens fought fiercely against the Soviets tanks, as did the Lithuanians during the January Events between the 11th and 13th of the month.
And in the end, they managed to gain their independence and breakaway from the tyrannical clutches of the Soviet Union.
Chapter 2
Rising tensions.
The independence of Lavinia was celebrated throughout the entire country, however, in the eastern side of the Lavinia a desire for independence was also growing.
The Anarchowen community was separated from the rest of Lavinia, as they lived in a small city in the mostly barren east of the nation, and over the years following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the desire for sovereignty grew in the Anarchowen inhibited region.
1995 was the year it all went down, the Anarchowens, under the rule of a ambitious young woman, who is only known as 'Mother Anarchy' declared independence from Lavinia.
Their sudden declaration was met with resistance from the Lavinian law inforcement within the area, but they were quickly overwhelmed, the seperatists managed to take over the region.
Upon the news of this, the current president of Lavinia, Mikel, instructed his army to take back the region from the seperatist.
Mikel had expected a swift and easy victory against the underpowered and unorganized seperatists, and his army had great success at taking back land from the seperatists, that all changed soon enough thought.
The leader of the seperatists gave instructions on what to do, they bombard the trenched of their enemies with Molotov cocktails, burning anyone who didn't take cover or run away from the area of impact within the thin and narrow trenches.
This tactic proved quite effective at not only lowering enemy moral, but also causing a good amount damage and casualties to them Lavinian army.
Soon the Lavinian army would build metal roofing on top the their trenches, providing protection from the fiery bombardment that they have faced.
Mother anarchy had another trick up her sleeve though, she instructed the creation of 'Battle Bikes', modified motorcycles with spikes on the front, two machine gun barrels on the side, taking ammo from the ammo boxes placed on the sides of the vehicle, and, as a last ditch resort, the driver could open up the gas tank, leaving behind a trail of gasoline wherever they drive, which could be lit up after gas tank runs dry.
This war machine was used to cause havoc on the battlefield, and in the enemy trenches, the riders of these bikes would ride down into the enemy trenches and mow down anyone unlucky enough to be caught, and as an added bonus, the drivers would leave these bikes in the enemy barracks, and set the gasoline trail on fire, burning any poor soul who was trampled by the biker.
The trail of burning gasoline would eventually reach the motorcycle, causing it to explode in the enemy barracks, which were often times build beneath the surface, and would cave in.
This kind of fighting went on for months, the people of Lavinia grew increasingly angry with their leader's incompetence on this situation, and he was overthrown and replaced with a new president, one Maria Haikka.
Chapter 3
Maria was a young girl from the northern most town of Kovosa, which had a sizeable Finnish minority, along with a few Estonians and Russians for some nice diversion, Maria grew up to a Finnish family, learning her parents native language, along with Russian and Lavinian, Maria had a shy and timid personality, often getting anxious and nervous when in tense situations or when having big responsibility placed on her, which is exactly what happened.
Maria was absolutely losing it, she had no idea of how to run a country, and had no knowledge on politics.
Mikel, who was now made into the new presidents secretary, tried to calm Maria down.
"Snap out of it Maria! You've got a country to run!"
-Mikel says while shaking Maria by her shoulders.
"I'm sorry! I'm just... I don't know what to do! I've got all these people who expect me to make things better but I don't even know what I'm supposed to do and it's making me nervous and-"
-Maria's rambling is cut short by Mikel.
"Listen, I know it's hard, but you have to do your best! These people are all counting on you to solve this issue!"
-Mikel says to Maria, holding his hand on one of her shoulders, she looks at him nervously.
"Y-you're right.. I have to stop do my best and solve this issue!"
-Maria says, looking a bit more confident in herself...
The battle continues to rage on weeks after, both of the armies are exhausted and tired of fighting, yet they neither seem to be giving up, that is when Maria receives a letter.
"We can continue fighting this war, or we can discuss a peace treaty, meet me at the border between our countries. - Mother Anarchy"
Maria gasps at this, a possible end to this dumb war? That would be amazing, but she was also nervous that it may be a trap, nevertheless Maria decides to take a chance and goes out to the border of Lavinia and Anarchow.
Maria finds herself in front of a destroyed part of town, most of the buildings are in ruins, except for an bell tower that used to belong to a church.
As Maria steps out of the vehicle, in the distance she sees a brown haired woman, wearing a black fisherman's cap and a long brown trench coat, her face is covered with a black surgical mask, and only her eyes are visible.
Maria comes closer to the woman, around them stand many soldiers, Both Lavin and Anarchowen, Maria stands awkwardly, waiting for the woman to speak.
"So, you decide to come and discuss this peace plan then?"
-MA says, her voice sounds devoid of emotion and bears a Ukrainian sounding accent.
"Y-yes, that is correct."
-Maria says anxiously
"You must be the one they call 'Mother Anarchy', correct?"
-Maria asks.
"Yes, that is correct, and what may your name be then?"
-MA asks, still bearing that same emotionless voice.
"Maria ma'am.."
-Maria answers.
"Maria.. That's a nice sounding name, fitting for such a nice girl as yourself."
-MA says.
"O-oh uhh, t-thank you.."
-Maria blushes a bit at the comment, she looks away shyly.
"Now then, let's discuss this peace agreement, shall we?"
-MA says, gesturing to Maria to come over to a nearby table where the two of them sit down and discuss the peace treaty.
"As the leader and representative of the Anarchowens, we have the following demands."
  1. The withdrawal of Lavinian forces from Anarchowen claimed regions.
  2. The recognition of Anarchowen sovereignty and industry.
And finally
  1. The permission to establish The state of Anarchow within this area.
-MA pulls out a map depicting the area which they claim as their own.
-Maria looks at the picture and thinks for a moment.
"Hmm, okay... You can have this land, but I must also ask for an agreement on someone."
"An agreement on what exactly?"
-MA asks curiously.
"We will provide your country with resources needed to sustain itself, and in return we ask for you to protect the eastern side of Lavinia from any possible land invasion."
-MA considers this offer for a few moments before answering.
"Our country would need help with sustaining itself, and due to the nature of our government, it would be hard finding countries who would support us... Fine, we will protect eastern Lavinia from any land invasions that try to pass through Anarchow."
-MA extends her hand to Maria and they both shake hands, Marking the end of the brutal war...

In my last post I promised to write about thumbnails. But NO! Thumbnails can wait. At the expense of repeating myself, in my first post on this forum I wrote:
“Second method is to use a proxy. What is the proxy? Successful channels in your niche. Not by imitating them but by studying them. What, how and when they upload a video and most important why they upload a video. Which topics get most traction?”
You do need to study your competition to answer following questions.
What they are doing?
How good is the video?
Is the creator able to keep viewers in the video?
How is the intro?
How is the production quality? Sometimes something simple as production quality can make the difference. How good is the thumbnail?
Can you make a better one to rank higher?
Now, Question is: How do you study your competitors? By collecting data.
Below are two quote from people who know something about data. Geoffrey Moore, Management Consultant & Theorist, wrote, “Without “big data,” you are blind and deaf and in the middle of a highway”.
Reference: Page 316 -
Chip and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick, wrote, “Data are just summaries of thousands of stories – tell a few of those stories to help make the data meaningful.”
So, here is the story of Johnny Harris, YT creator with 3.78M subscribers and 187 videos, through data of his channel. Please download the data files using the following link to follow along.
Data Download Link:
Every aspiring YT creator always ask a question, “when and how many times a week I should upload?”
Until April 2022 Johnny uploaded 96 videos. And 75 videos out of 96 (78%) were uploaded between 11AM and 2PM. There are outliers but In Johnny’s view best time to upload is just before lunch time. He seldom upload on Saturday and Sunday. However, during the week his uploads are almost evenly distributed. And this makes sense as well. Most of his videos are about geopolitics and/or have something to do with maps. What do these facts tell us about his audience?
According to Pew Research Center, survey conducted in October and November of 2019, “U.S. adults who say social media is their most common way to get political news are the youngest by a considerable margin. Nearly half of the adults in that group 48% are under 30, and perhaps even more striking is that only 12% of them are 50 and older. 58% are women, 56% white adults and only 11% Black adults”. These are the people most active during week days and working hours. His upload time makes perfect sense. His casual style, choice of words and overall vibe resonate with this audience as well.
Average video Duration
Total video length 1 day 1h 9m 19s
Average video length 15m 43s
His tags and keywords also speak volumes about him. He used 675 unique tags to describe his videos. However, he used following 6 tags 430 times, once in almost every video.
Vox Borders 90
Johnny Harris Vox 89
Johnny Harris 88
Johnny Harris Vox Borders 87
Vox 76
This too makes sense. Before working fulltime on his own channel he was host of a popular show titled “Borders” on VOX. He is still trying to capitalize on his successful show.
And please don’t lose sleep over TAGs. These are there cause of legacy issues and at most for misspelling corrections, which aren’t many anyway. Modern engines can understand even worst misspellings. It’s a myth that tags can help in ranking videos. Of course at the end of the day the official Google documentation has final say on this matter.
"Tags can be useful if the content of your video is commonly misspelled. Otherwise, tags play a minimal role in your video`s discovery."
Present YT algorithm isn’t dependent on these lists of mere words. This doesn’t mean the age of SEO is over. As long as there are search engines there will be SEO. It’s just that techniques will change. In a 175 page long research paper published by google researchers revealed that YT started using AI to track and improve viewer satisfaction back in 2015. You can very well understand what the state of the technology is today. However, there are tools made available by google to improve content SEO. One key take away is this: Today one cannot cheat AI but it is possible to work alongside AI to get better traction online.
Popular videos Here is the list of his most popular videos till April 2022.
Shampoo is a Lie (for me...and maybe for you too??)-5,113,597
Here’s What Happens If China Invades Taiwan-6,447,921
Putin Will Lose, Here's Why-7,466,282
Why People Think the World is Flat-7,818,523
NFTs, Explained-7,929,629
The REAL Reason Putin is Invading Ukraine-8,164,155
The Man Putin Fears The Most-8,250,751
The REAL Reason McDonalds Ice Cream Machines Are Always Broken-10,032,664
But the interesting fact is he uploads his videos in 8 different categories namely:
News & Politics
How to & Style
Science & Technology
Nonprofits & Activism
Travel & Events
Film & Animation
what do you make of this? This data also include thumbnails of all his videos. But that is a topic for another day.
Then there are trending videos on YouTube. The data you just downloaded contains list of videos trending in the U.S. this year in news and politics category. The most striking fact about this dataset is that so-called “Main Stream Media” still has clout among YT viewers in the U.S.
Above is just a glimpse of the gold mine we call data. WE can answer a long list of question with the help of this data. For example:
Which Topics are trending in a specific category? Which titles and thumbnails attract most viewers? Which keywords are popular in a given period of time or a category?
Which topics generate most engagement? Can we find trends and patterns among a given set of Creators in a given niche?
And many more…
Do this exercise for minimum 10 and max 30 popular channels in your niche and you will get a clear picture of your desired audience preferences. You will have a long list of Ideas in your pocket and you will have a clear benchmark in view. Otherwise you are standing in the middle of a highway.
A word of caution, if one thinks Data is the elixir and it will unlock the gates of the city of success and fame. Then one could scarcely be more wrong. Data is a guide, honest guide. It will guide you in the right direction. It will help you in making right decisions. It will help you in finding ample opportunities to put you on the path to success. You will have to work for it nonetheless.
Please share your ideas, comments and critique.

2023.03.22 21:34 PuppyMillsMustGo Houston vegans- help stop Petland from violating anti puppy mill law!

This would be for anyone who lives in Houston, or has friends in Houston who they can help mobilize.
In January an anti-puppy mill law went into effect in Houston. In short, pet stores are not allowed to sell commercially raised puppies. They can offer shelter or rescue dogs, but not sell any mill or breeder puppies.
It is now late March, and the Petland store that is in Houston city limits STILL is selling puppies. They have been cited by the city at least three times, but get this, the fine has been just over $300. These puppies sell for $5,000-$7,000 in most instances. That little fine is just the cost of doing business for Petland.
The Mayor needs to step in and do one or both of the following:
  1. Have the city cite Petland for each individual puppy in the store so the fine is significantly higher, prompting compliance with the law.
  2. Pull Petland's certificate of occupancy since they refuse to follow the law.
If you want to save dogs from puppy mills, or simply hate when the city lets a multi-national corporation break the law when we all know full well that the rest of us will be held accountable for even the smallest infractions, then please let Mayor Turner know that the city needs to stop Petland from breaking the law. Enforce the puppy mill ordinance!
Mayor Turner's office can be reached at:
Phone: 713.837.0311Email: [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
In case you need it when filing a complaint, this is the address for Puppy Mill Land, sorry, Petland. 6429 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77057
