Data Science Methodology (IBM)

Compleated another certificate realted to data Science. This was was step by step explainaiton of the whole procedure of a Data Science project. It showed the pattern as a whole instead of goind too much deep into how each operation is being done. In the discussion coloum of the IBM portal some students found it way too eazy, whereas the idea of working with so much data and numbers on a excell sheet in future overwelmed me a bit.

So finally I overcame my fears and compleated this bit and here is the link to flaunt on another certificate from IBM

Tools for Data Science

In this article, I am just documenting my journey of learning Data Science. Currently, I have completed Course 2 of the IBM Data Science Professional Certificate titled “Tools for Data Science”

I have currently two digital badges from IBM to flaunt on this Digital Universe

The link to the Badges is:

  1. Data Science Orientation

https://www.credly.com/badges/82b8daa6-9d94-4ea5-a7ed-1dcd78accc91

2. Tools for Data Science

https://www.credly.com/badges/e8119c02-2b2f-4fdd-852e-bab85cc64bfa

Now Coming to the main part of this article. The final takeaway of this course was the final assignment learned in week 4 of the course where we executed the learning of different Markdowns (i.e Fonts / Caligraphy in Coding). This has complied in a Jyupter Notebook made inside Waston Studio provided by IBM. I am sharing a link to my work as this would be the first-ever task I managed to pulled of in my Data Science journey. (I know I know in the future I will laugh that I shared a barely minimum sill level task but it is just the start of a big Marathon thus I thought the smaller achievements are worth a share)

The link to my work is :

Creative Markdown Cheatsheet

While practicing work on Jupyter Notebooks there are many fancy ways to write a code markdown. Markdown are like Headings, Titles and Subtitles in a code which are not executed in while we run the programme. These Markdowns are only there to guide the reader of what the code is about or explain the code step by step or add hint or comments.

There is a cheat sheat to guide us through the variety of Markdown styles. I will provide the link to original post so that the credit goes to the content creator rather than just copy pasting the styles in this web page.

This link to the Markdown Sheet is: https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/wiki/Markdown-Cheatsheet

Hope to share more info about Data Science as and when I learn about it.

The “Wants” but Not the “Needs”

Sitting, working or study at “home” I am daily bombared with many commercial adds. Tapping deep down to my insecurity or just touching the peak of my craving curve. These adds, target the basic choice of a person. Though I am learing Data Science and I am hopeful to be on the other side of the imaganary line where I will be making software and Data Analysis platforms that can predict a model or some behaviourial pattern. But currently on primitive side of the imaginary line, these “Wants” are of a big distraction.

Thus instead of giving on to those Wants” I am just making another list here with pictures of all the things I want, instead of the ones I actually need.

  1. Playstation Five PS5

Its been pending since the start of the year. Probably the lack of availabilty in the current market makes it more desirable. I currenlty have a PS4 and probaly more than 100 games. Actually exactly 121 Games (I just checked my list) and out of that more than 50 are my Retirement Plan Games. Still the Craving for buying a PS5 is an itch difficult to get out of.

Play Station Five PS5

2. An M1 Apple

This is an expensive one as well thus more difficult to decide on one. Since the annouce of M1 processor and my Professor suggesting me to buy a mac to do Data Science instead of the Windows I am use to. I am actually confused between the two. Should I go for a Mac Mini which is equaly powerful as the Mac Book Pro using an M1 Processor.

Mac M1 Machines

3. Nintendo Switch (unpatched)

Since the time I learned that Nintendo switch can be homebrewed I wanted one my hand. I knew only the first generation can be modified without the use of a soildering skills that I do not have now. I wanted to try out the what all a small platformer can do with modifying its softwares

Nintendo Switch with Atmosphere Installed in it

4. Back Massager

This is the one craving I am ready to give into. Spending at least 8 hours on chair in front of my system, this is the one thing I am eager to buy as soon as possible. I have see the cheaper model of Massaging Instrumentation at nearest Kmart and I guess this is the one on my bucketlist before Dec 2021. The craving started when I went to one of my freinds’ (MJ’s) house warming party and used a similar model kept on his dinning chair.

Back and Thigh Massager

5. A portable Vaccume Cleaner

One of my household duty is to keep the house clearn or at least Vaccume it once a week. My current vaccume clearns is eons old and thus I wanted to upgrade it from past month. Though I am very keen to upgrade to a Codless vaccume cleaner but comparing its power and runntime only being 20 minutes, I would probably buy a Chorded one.

I-Vac X20 Stick Vaccume Cleaner

6. Go Pro Camera

I know I know my list is mostly of electric and electronic cravings but an Action Cam is one on my list from a very long time. Especially since the time I learned that the new Go_Pro Hero 9 has inbuild image stabilization and thus even if you walk and capure something, the video comes without any shakes even on 4k 60 frames per second.

Go Pro Hero 9

7. Google Pixel 6

I wanted to upgrade my mobile(Moto G9 Plus) since last November which it got its first crack on its screen within first month of its purchase. The warrenty did not cover the glass damage and though its a good working mobile still it was not the first choice at the time of purchase. I have used a Pixel 3 and I am aware of the Google Phone performance thus would like to switch back to it as and when possible and not being heavy on my pocket.

Google Pixel 6

8. iPad Pro

This is another latest crave arised when making Mathematics Videos on my Youtube Channle. I recently started a journey of Revisting the NCERT/CBSE mathematics books from Class 1 to 12 ( link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFRKyUlm9dA&list=PLyLjJEJ59imz19Zh6qZIG5tZoC9oSQwYP ) While expaling anything on camera, many times I feel like there should be something which I can write on to show what I am thinking while explaining any maths problem This lead to search of devices with Pen capture and finally I landed on Ipad Pro which can do the job along with other stuff.

iPad Pro with Pen

9. Mirrorless Camera (Originaly Thought DSLR)

If/when I have a Go-Pro and Google Pixcel, I dont really need a good video capture device. But this list is not of the needs anyway. Thus I thought why not include the long awaited DSLR on my list. Currently the DSLR would be very heavy thus I switched on to the craving of possessing an Mirrorless with 4k 60 to 120 fps caputre and that is only possible in a camera ranging way above my pocket range. Cannon R5 or R6 are on the market that caters that “want”

Cannon R6

10. 4k Laser Projector

It was either this or a 75 inch TV. But in house if we really want the Theater Kinda feeling then a 4K Laser project is something I would plan for when I will buy a house of my own.

4k Laser Projector

All the images used in this post belong to their respecive creators fond on the web. My list could have been longer but currently all togher they have crossed my annual earning already. Thus even to think more I have to first expand my pocket or source of earning then dream upon making the Sand Castel.

If in your dream purchase list matches mine, please do write it on the comment section below. And if my list gets updated, either I will update this one with more items or just make another list next year.

Till then, be in touch…

See you on the other side !!!

Piracy _ Hacking _ Technology Transfer

While few year ago I wrote an article about Piracy in Biotechnology, or its lack of, making the spread of technology very slow in Indian Biotech Industry. People either going with high moral values and givng all those newly discoverd things for free (or) being crazy for fame and money, registering patent after patent. Both sides of the sea, the main idea is to progress. In time the force derives by public demand, ease of use and most important “funds” for any project to be viable.

Today based on the same idea I found a video which is like 8 years old relative to the time I am writing this post. Discussess how cost-effective technolgy hacking can really be useful and more than the video, if you can go and check the comments section of the video where only the idea of some research and its use have done an positive impact on people around the globe. I will screen short and paste one such comment which I personnaly liked along with the video link:

Completed “Push-UP Challenge” to support Mental Health Awareness

The year 2021 looks like the year of achievements. Though financially I am dried up, but in other realms, I am super active. One such thing I participated in was in June 2021 for the first 25 days. The target was given a big number Three Three One Eight, representing the number of people who committed suicide in the year 2019.

My first response was that is impossible. I had preconceived views of some of the past Australian channels reporting that “if they did the 3318 pushups even spread throughout the month, they would gain good muscles and a fit body.” But actually accepting a challenge and then performing it would be a tough job for them as well.

I thought let us try it anyway. What’s there to lose anyway. (except the 100 kg weight I have gained all over the past 6 years ๐Ÿ˜› )

So I registered, download the app, and started from Day 1 (1st June 2021).

The app and website were synchronized that whatever I actually performed and reported on the app was well reflected on the website as well. Link https://www.thepushupchallenge.com.au/pushuperer/177159

Then there was a fundraiser. Being cash poor, I was not able to contribute myself but along with that being concerned for the many International communities I was in contact with who were struggling in Covid last year, it did not seem fair for me to even ask for any money. Thus the fundraiser part of the challenge was a big No-No for me.

Still, somehow I wanted to contribute to the challenge. It was either a guilt trap or actual concern, that I thought I could at least contribute towards the awareness part of the whole challenge initiative.

So I took my camera, learned more about OBS studio, and started recording the already available daily mental health facts which were released on daily basis throughout the challenge days. My target there was if I was able to translate the given text from English to Hindi, that would be a good use of my skills as well as even the Hindi-speaking audience would be able to be aware of what is going on Push-Up challenge.
Link to videos: https://youtu.be/Xo8D2WNuGSc

So day after day the videos were being posted and that encouraged me to keep continuing to do the push-up as well.

During the challenge, I learned so many new terms, actions, and numbers representing the local and national relations with stress, depression, and suicidality.

So finally today I got my certificate of completion and thought to do a little show-off post it here.

#PushForBetter

Overall I would like to say 3318 is a relatively big number, both for doing the push-up as well as the number of the actual human being losing their lives due to various reasons related to mental health. I wish this number is reduced in the coming years and a better mental health support system is built not only in Australia but throughout the world.

Signing off for now and keen for the next challenge in life, this time probably a 42.19 km marathon next year.

Kind Regards

Untold Storie Post 83 : Start Writing Again You Fucker !!!!

So simply on 29th Oct 2019 overstressed by the pressure of loss going through the new owned business “HI Guard Security Services” I started reading my own blogs to get inspiration from.

 

Fuck…

Too many words on a single line above.

I was actually pretty impressed by my own ideas and views from the year 2007 to the Year 2015. Then I wondered why did I stop writing?

So many times I thought to start writing again and then procrastinated about doing it and then left it as it is.

Then I fumbled upon the person/or his blog, because of whom I go inspiration to write and it was actually this particular post: https://ashishmandrah.wordpress.com/aboutme/

 

He is a Schoolmate of mine, and with time even he stopped writing…

Nowadays thinking of starting to write is like Planning to Go to GYM,

I start that too every week and then stop somewhere during mid of the remaining 7 days.

I even pay $32.59 per fortnight for some ungodly reason that will force me to go to the GYM but it doesn’t really happen for a long time.

This post is not actually putting my pessimistic thoughts on the blog and getting frustrated by Grammarly which keeps correcting me every three words I type. But in reality, it’s just a warm-up exercise to my fingers and brain that WRITING is fun and I should give it a chance every now and then to come back and keep Posting Random stuff as I use to do before.

 

I know currently out of the 2 thousand supporters I had on WordPress only 32 are remaining. But as I learned in Engineering that Demands Pulls rather than Supply Pushes or the other way round, I will come back to WordPress or by some other Publishing media play the WORD Game again.

Hope you are there with me whichever way this Journey Goes

Till then See you in Next Post or Next Life, whichever is earlier ๐Ÿ™‚

Chao !!!!

Untold Stories Post 81: THE BROKEN ENGINEER

My Engineering lifespan of four years was a journey along with roller-coaster of emotions.

Girls biologically wired to cope up with emotions, having this as their strong suit, could choose the practical decisions on their own.

Boys on the other hand needed a support group, which they even fail to admit that it is a support group.

The incidents I am quoting are not always alcohol induced, but alcohol did open up some strong men’s heart which left them to crying on the floor. I would not like to mention any
names of this article for the reason that I fail to get their permission yet to share their part of story. So these incidents only form my my point of view.

Scene 1:
First and second year of engineering everyone tries their best to accommodate and live with the new environment which they are forced into.
Not everyone is accustomed to live away form their respective parents.
At that time, may be due to my rebellious age I would love to live away from my parents and have less of a control of them over me.
But some of the boys were connected to their parents in a very very deep and complicated bond that only they could express.

I went to a house party.

Ya because in Engineering life, every day is Party.

Ohh ! I am sorry Every night is party and every day is a kind of sleepover.
In this party a new song got trending.

And with a very slow dial up or mobile internet connection at time this was downloaded the with high definition video of “YOU CAN PUT THAT BLAME OF ME”
by Ackon.
We watched the song once.
We watched the song twice.
and then thrice.
Goosebumps were running on the lyrics,

“Sorry for the times I left you home,

I was on the road and you were alone”

And all of a sudden may be the desi guy finally understood the English lyrics and started crying.
He just went on that he misses his mom and now want to just go home for good.
I was astonished to see such a strong personality breaking down in front of me and weeping, sitting outside of house, not bothering to observe the strange world which in constant caution he did before. I was not a emotional supporter and thus could not help the guy, but that day I was thankful that I am still living with my parents. And I was not sure what would be my go when I had to leave away. (*fast forward to year 2013 when I had to live alone, I did cry, but that story for some other time)

Scene 2:
This was just past the Final year Engineering life and I was invited to another party.

This time it was booze and chicken and what not in the house.

One of the reason was, though not by 9 to 5 jobs but street smart Engineers in their final year and beyond, learn their way to gain income through various objectionable mediums.
Those time the song, “Tera Pyaar Pyaar Pyaar Hooka Baar” form Khiladi 786 was released and I asked for if I can have Sheesha instead of drinking.
Truly speaking till this day I never like alcohol. I am just a social drinker who like to loose control once in a while.

Since I was not drinking I became the judge of two heavy drinkers of that group. The completion was who can have and handle maximum amount of alcohol.
One of the player was very dear friend of mine and other was a Super Senior.

“Super Senior” as if it is even a word.

But we use to believe anyone who is more than two academic
batches ahead of is a Super Senior.

They Drank almost one and half bottle of Whiskey “McDowell’s No. 1” and discussion turns to arguments and then crossed the stage of apologies. Finally the Super senior broke heavy.
He started crying out a loud, “What a waste of life we have become. Four Years of Engineering academic course and its been 7 years for me and still not completed these stupid fucking semesters. Still taking money from my parents. I should die of shame.”

That day I realised though outside we can pretend to be strong on our failures but inside the failures eat you out alive. And for an Engineer, the worst part is
taking money from parents. They internally feel loss ofย  self respect if they continue doing it after certain years. But in a non- induce stage wont admit it openly.
Dr. Phill calls this stage and behaviour as “Moochers” And I am sorry to admit that for more than 22 years of my life I was one. But that night I decided, doesn’t matter what,
I will find a job, I would clean someone’s house but will not live a Moochers life. (*fast forward, I still owe a lot of sum to my parents but I believe I am off the mooching ground)

Scene 3:
People say keep the best for the last.
But I would keep a very ordinary story to dilute the emotions we had in previous scenario.
I am not even evolved in this story. Thus presenting to you in the form I perceived it form the closest friend.
It was time of campus section. A process where companies come to University and take the brightest mind to work with them. That means for selected few, you will end up with a job right after you have completed your degree. Being the first batch in Biotechnology our college fail to create a carrier show for us. But with enough struggle manage to get one company to interview us.
(I was in a different state of India and focused that I need to perceive a higher education and thus decided not to for this campus event).
My friends who went there were sitting outside for hours before their interview and in contact with me by telephonic conversion through sms.
Only one or two people in that group were given adequate soft skill training about the interview.

The package was in the range of 8 to 12 thousand rupees per month. Which was definitely way too less than expectation of Engineering Graduate. People with soft skill taring have the idea of how to respond to the question “Are YOU happy with the SALARY package offered?”
And if you want that as your first job without having the necessary training for the job, the answer should be “YES”

But one candidate who knew this information started discussing outside, before the interview, and also influenced the interview seekers outside that the salary package offered is very low.
Lets all demand for making this salary package at least up to in the range of 16 to 20 thousand per month.
If we all demand for a higher salary, we will push the economy high and the company has to accept us with giving us an higher salary package.

At this point I would say, WOW ! and Excellent move. Forcing the company to actually provide the acknowledge pay rate to every employee and set the bar high.

Few hours later I was again dazzled by the information, that company only selected few candidates who said they are happy with the salary package they offered.
And rejected all who went against and demand more money to do this job with a pay raise.
The shocking part was, The candidate who influenced everyone to ask for raise actually said “YES” for the pay offered and got selected.

The lesson learned that day was, “THE DAY OF ENGINEERING ARE OVER” and “FRIENDSHIP VALUES HAVE BEEN CHANGED”

WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD.
