Eugen Block: "Wie die Mutter der Kompanie" | ZEIT ONLINE

Au weia…

Thomas Eichhorn (Tom) originally shared:

So, damit ihr wisst, wo ihr euer Geld lasst, wenn ihr zu Blockhouse geht:

Er habe bei der letzten Bundestagswahl AfD gewählt, wie Block erzählt, “als Korrektiv für diesen großen Mischmasch von Politik”. Dabei habe er eigentlich mit der Muttermilch aufgesogen, dass man CDU zu wählen habe.

Ach.

Der Atomstromschwindel fliegt nun endlich auf: » Die vier Konzerne RWE, Eon, Vattenfall und EnBW wollen und werden die Folgekosten ihres Geschäftsmodells den Steuerzahlern überlassen.

Base rate fallacy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Erklär-Kris und die Terror-Erkennung

Kristian Köhntopp originally shared:

From the “Teaching Math in German Social Media”-Dept: Base Rate Fallacy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base_rate_fallacy#Example_2 »In a city of 1 million inhabitants let there be 100 terrorists and 999,900 non-terrorists. To simplify the example, it is assumed that all people present in the city are inhabitants. Thus, the base rate probability of a randomly selected inhabitant of the city being a terrorist is 0.0001, and the base rate probability of that same inhabitant being a non-terrorist is 0.9999.

In an attempt to catch the terrorists, the city installs an alarm system with a surveillance camera and automatic facial recognition software.

The software has two failure rates of 1%:

- The false negative rate: If the camera scans a terrorist, a bell will ring 99% of the time, and it will fail to ring 1% of the time.

- The false positive rate: If the camera scans a non-terrorist, a bell will not ring 99% of the time, but it will ring 1% of the time.

Suppose now that an inhabitant triggers the alarm. What is the chance that the person is a terrorist? In other words, what is P(T | B), the probability that a terrorist has been detected given the ringing of the bell?

Someone making the ‘base rate fallacy’ would infer that there is a 99% chance that the detected person is a terrorist.

Although the inference seems to make sense, it is actually bad reasoning, and a calculation below will show that the chances they are a terrorist are actually near 1%, not near 99%. The fallacy arises from confusing the natures of two different failure rates.

The 'number of non-bells per 100 terrorists’ and the 'number of non-terrorists per 100 bells’ are unrelated quantities. One does not necessarily equal the other, and they don’t even have to be almost equal.

To show this, consider what happens if an identical alarm system were set up in a second city with no terrorists at all. As in the first city, the alarm sounds for 1 out of every 100 non-terrorist inhabitants detected, but unlike in the first city, the alarm never sounds for a terrorist. Therefore 100% of all occasions of the alarm sounding are for non-terrorists, but a false negative rate cannot even be calculated. The 'number of non-terrorists per 100 bells’ in that city is 100, yet P(T | B) = 0%. There is zero chance that a terrorist has been detected given the ringing of the bell.

Imagine that the city’s entire population of one million people pass in front of the camera. About 99 of the 100 terrorists will trigger the alarm—and so will about 9,999 of the 999,900 non-terrorists. Therefore, about 10,098 people will trigger the alarm, among which about 99 will be terrorists. So, the probability that a person triggering the alarm actually is a terrorist, is only about 99 in 10,098, which is less than 1%, and very, very far below our initial guess of 99%.

The base rate fallacy is so misleading in this example because there are many more non-terrorists than terrorists.«

Kristian Köhntopp originally shared:

Die Zwei-Faktor-Authentifizierung

Der netzpolitische Spezialexperte der CDU/CSU-Fraktion, Thomas Jarzombek, im Rahmen seines Beitrags pro VDS, bei 4:05:

»Das Einzige, was hier gespeichert wird, ist die Adresse, mit der Sie selbst im Internet für 24 Stunden bekannt sind. Eine Information in 24 Stunden. Zumindestens im Regelfall. Und um daraus zu schließen, auf welchen Servern Sie gewesen sind oder mit wem Sie kommuniziert haben, brauchen Sie das, was man in der IT eine Zwei-Faktor-Authentifizierung nennt, sie brauchen nämlich die Gegenseite auch, die festgehalten hat, beispielsweise eine Server, auf dem Sie Nachrichten ausgetauscht haben, wann welche IP-Adresse dort online gewesen ist.«

Äh, nein. Aber es erklärt vieles.

Fefes Blog

muss man mal fullquoten:

> die Medien in Sachen Bahnstreik alle so tun, als läge das jetzt alleine in der Hand der GdL, wie lange der Streik läuft. Dabei gibt es noch eine ganz einfache Methode, den Streik sofort zu beenden. Man könnten denen einfach mal substantiell entgegenkommen! Die streiken ja nicht als Selbstzweck! Wenn unser Staat (als Eigentümer der Bahn) sich hier nicht wie ein kapitalistisches Riesenarschloch aufführen würde, und die GdL am langen Arm verhungern lassen wollen würde, gäbe es diesen Streik gar nicht!

Mir kommt das kalte Kotzen, wenn ich sehe, wie die Medien den GdL-Chef als Psychopathen niederschreiben, anstatt mal auf die eigentlichen Psychopathen hinzuweisen: uns. Denn der Staat vertritt ja uns. Der Staat lässt die Bahn ja in unserem Namen vergammeln. Behandeln das als Profit Center, nicht als kritische Infrastruktur.

Marina Abramovic meets Ulay


from
















Marina Abramovic meets Ulay

“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”
