Berendina and Detlef, Canada Iceland Grand Tour, June 2016 We were extremely happy with the service from Nordic Visitor. The amount of detail in the travel itinerary was more than excellent.
The trip ran smoothly. There were no surprises or problems. James and Andrea, United States South Iceland at Leisure, June 2016 The service from Nordic Visitor was excellent. Larus was very helpful with choosing a customized itinerary for us. The rental car, hotels, and itinerary were all excellent.
Every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations. Iceland was so beautiful, and such a pleasure to travel in. A self-guided tour with our children was quite easy and enjoyable. Nordic Visitor made everything so easy, especially with airport transfers, rental car pick up, etc. They chose great hotels for us. We used Nordic Visitor on the recommendation of a friend, and I would highly recommend it to others. In fact, I already have recommended it to a few interested friends.
Gary, United States Scenic Ring of Iceland, June 2016 Dagny was wonderful to work with. She was very pleasant and patient with us, as we had a lot of questions. We appreciated all her recommendations of places to stop on our way also. Barbara, United States Express Norway, June 2016 I thought all the hotels were great, especially in the small towns, staff were friendly and meals were good.
We had a great experience, my daughter and thoroughly enjoyed the self guided driving tour through rural Norway. Sue and John, United Kingdom Golden Triangle - Starting in Copenhagen, June 2016 It was well organised - all arrangements timed perfectly - good background information in the itinery Valerie, United States The Natural Wonders of Iceland, June 2016 Arnar was my Nordic Representative.
Our guide Christine provided an excellent tour for us. I am so glad we chose to go with the guided tour. The history, geography, culture and stories of Iceland told to us by Christine made our trip so rich.
The Natural Wonders are truly amazing.
Abbey, United States Scandinavian Highlights, June 2016 We thought our guide was absolutely wonderful. Katherine, France Scenic Fjords of Norway, June 2016 We had an amazing trip. Everything was well organized and went like clockwork. T Geraldine and Robyn, Canada Iceland Full Circle, June 2016 Helga, our tour consultant, went above and beyond with her service. Anna and Robert, United States Adventures Around Iceland, June 2016 Iceland is a beautiful country.
Robert and Heather, Canada Express Iceland, June 2016 We were very impressed with how smoothly everything went. Colette and Simon, United Kingdom Express Iceland, May 2016 The highlighted map was really useful for planning the tour, and all the small written suggestions were the little bits that made the holiday special. Paul, Australia Iceland Complete, May 2016 Overall, the standard of service provided through Nordic Visitor was of a high standard and we as a group have no complaints or criticisms.
Ruth, United Kingdom Scenic Fjords of Norway, May 2016 All hotels great Flam was peaceful- hotel had great view all trains and boat trips fitted in well and enabled us to relax (rather than drive). Sue, United States The Golden Triangle of Scandinavia, May 2016 Hotels were always well located (most important), clean, excellent service and most with excellent views. Malav, India South Iceland at Leisure, May 2016 Nordic made our tour perfect, easy and memorable.
It's the best and look forward to use it in future and strongly recommend others too. Janet, United Kingdom Pearls of the South and West - Winter, April 2016 Pretty much everything was of a higher standard than we expected.The process was very easy.
It was well worth it. Our travel consultant, Helga G. The itinerary was detailed and made it very easy for us to plan our day. The Welcome packet we received provided excellent information about various attractions. The highlighted map that was provided was very handy in helping us find our way and manage our time. Even the people that transported us from the hotel to the airport were prompt and friendly. I never felt I had to worry about something going wrong with the travel plans.
A year ago, we had used Nordic to book a trip to Iceland. We enjoyed our travels in the country so much and had such an outstanding experience with Nordic that we used them again this year to book a trip to visit part of the country that we didn't see last year.
We're already thinking of a return trip for next year--and will, of course, use Nordic again. We thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed our guide's knowledge and expertise. Brian was extremely informative, patient, and entertaining. He was very considerate of the fact that we were 2 active but older women. He was also very kind to other travellers who realized he was a guide and would stop him to ask advice. Although this was to be my only trip to Scotland, thanks to his influence and fascinating instruction on the Highlands and Highlanders, I know I need to see more.
I would let Nordic Visitor give more advice on the tour must sees. We met with the Edinburgh office staff - Maria, Anna, and Kris - after our tour was done, again Brian going above and beyond to bring us to meet them, days after our tour was over. I cannot say enough good things about all the help they gave us.
Even though we did not have the opportunity to meet with Helga in person we felt extremely well looked after by all her hard work and planning before and during the trip, and would completely recommend her and the Nordic Visitor team, you are all wonderful. We would have loved to drop by the office to tell you in person how much fun we were having but we squeezed in extra activities so didn't end up having time to do so.
We had asked for a tailored trip which was a day longer than the tour on the website, and Helga organised this effortlessly. We also requested a combination of comfort and superior rooms and again she organised this with no trouble. The comfort rooms were pretty nice to stay in, occasionally having hot-tubs outside and always delicious food at their restaurants.
The superior rooms we stayed at were incredibly memorable and really completed our honeymoon experience. It was the most fantastic honeymoon we could have imagined, thank you so much for organising it for us.
We travelled as a family of two adults and one child and organised our combined tours 'Tale of Four cities' Scandinavian capitals and 'Iceland Full Circle' from afar totally online. The online experience went extremely smoothly.Applications are due on Monday, November 6th.

President Lou Anna K. Simon and Provost June Pierce Youatt presided over a high-profile ceremony at the Kellogg Conference Center on Friday, September 22, to honor him and all the newly named and endowed professors at MSU. His new rank recognizes Prof. His work has been applied to business analytics, medical bioinformatics, and biomedical engineering.
Leo Neufcourt joins MSU researchers - STT announces the arrival of Leo Neufcourt, who comes to us from the Ph. Leo completed his Master's-level research on stochastic analysis and Malliavin calculus under the supervision of Prof. Frederi Viens, Chair of STT, while he was visiting the Center for Stochastic Modeling (CIMFAV) at the Universidad de Valparaiso, Chile.
Leo will spend two years as a research associate at MSU, where he will engage in many projects with various teams in STT and other units on campus. Notably, he is already engaged in an exciting new collaboration between STT and the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) where he joins FRIB chief scientist Prof. Witold Nazarewicz and his team, STT Chairperson Frederi Viens, and STT's MSU Foundation Professor Taps Maiti, as they develop new Bayesian tools to quantify uncertainty in nuclear physics models.
Leo is also starting a new collaboration with an STT team, as well as Prof. Bengt Arnetz, Chair of the department of Family Medicine, and Prof. Judy Arnetz, Associate Chair for Research in the same department, where they will investigate new predictive models and their Bayesian analyses for improving healthcare outcomes in Michigan. We are very excited about Leo's arrival in STT at MSU, and look forward to his successful collaborations.To update a model, you need to PUT an object containing the fields that you want to update to the model' s base URL.
Once you delete a model, it is permanently deleted. If you try to delete a model a second time, or a model that does not exist, you will receive a "404 not found" response. However, if you try to delete a model that is being used at the moment, then BigML. To list all the models, you can use the model base URL. By default, only the 20 most recent models will be returned. You can get your list of models directly in your browser using your own username and API key with the following links. You can also paginate, filter, and order your models.
This is valid for both regression and classification models. Objective Weights: submitting a specific weight for each class in classification models.
Automatic Balancing: setting the balance argument to true to let BigML automatically balance all the classes evenly. Let's see each method in more detail. We can use it as an input to create a model that will use to weight each instance accordingly. In this case, fraudulent transactions will weigh 10 times more than valid transactions in the model building computations.
You can just use one of the rows and add the corresponding count as a weight field. This will reduce the size of your sources enormously.
Objective Weights The second method for adding weights only applies to classification models. Each instance will be weighted according to its class weight. This means the example below is equivalent to the example above. If every weight does end up zero (this is possible with sampled datasets), then the resulting model will have a single node with a nil output.
Each instance will be weighted individually according to the weight field's value.I also suspect that it would only come to a suitably open platform, not one as locked-down as the Kindle with only one provider. Considering many textbooks are currently the price of a Kindle it should be trivial to find a way to encourage their acceptance heavily. Partnering with schools and offering a method to automatically find and buy all of your books for a semester would help greatly with keeping students with it through convenience.
Why bother tracking down all the books you need, ordering them in advance (either online or reserving them with the campus bookstore) when you can get everything within minutes with a single click and not even having to think about it. With paper books, depending on how long I will be gone for, that means carrying as many as five books at a time.
I used to think text books were going to be the killer use, but have changed my mind about that, at least in the current state of the Kindle. Know roughly where something is in a book, but not the exact page number. More like press Menu, select Go To, enter a location number, glance at the page, guess another location number and repeat the process. I think something that could be very competitive for the kindle is if it were to offer some of the capabilities of the nook and other e-reading devices.
Now that more competitive e-readers are on the market, all that glisters is not gold. Nook, and I-Pad among others offer access to google e-books and you can even check out e-books from, at least from my local library, to the nook. The most you can do, book wise, with the kindle is buy and share for 14 days with another kindle owner. What about another possibility. A priced Kindle, but with a certain number of books and magazines or newspapers for free. The current model suffers because the books, magazines and newspapers are typically more expensive on the Kindle than the paperback versions.
I wish Amazon sold the Kindle as a tree saver, and additionally being a money saver. Amazon is a scary company to compete against because they keep their margins low and give so much of the economics back to the customer.
Once you have paid for Prime, you get everything quickly and love Amazon. I have been continually impressed at how Amazon has sacraficed short term profitability for the long-term health of the business and this would be another example of that.
I like the formatting and usability of iBooks better, though. I too use the iPad Kindle app and the nook app and the stanza app and the iBooks app and the app for my local libraries I am now a bibliophile of both the print and ebook type. I can go on reading the my kindle for hours. All its missing is a better nav system.
There is no extra cost beyond what you already pay. I would love a free Kindle. Seems like a huge missed opportunity.
It would be yet another incentive for people to sign up for Amazon Prime. Free shipping, free movie streaming, free Kindle.If either doesn't happen, the bet is refunded. A favorite must win by 2 runs or more, or the underdog must either:(a) Win the game.
The payout varies according to the money line odds assigned to each outcome. Note: Same rules apply to run line bets as totals. Baseball parlays are figured out by calculating the payout for the first game, based on the money line, then applying that amount to the next game, and so-forth. If a game is postponed for any reason, the parlay reduces by one team.
The bet is treated as if the postponed game were never included in the parlay. Simply ask the betting attendant at your favorite sports book what your payout would be before placing the bet. When making a baseball bet, you are betting team vs.Wolves - Hunters of the Winter - Nature Documentary Part 1 & Part 2
You have the option to specify that either or both listed pitchers must start the game. Since baseball odds are determined on starting pitchers, any late pitching changes often force an adjustment in the odds.
This will increase or decrease the payout on a winning ticket. However, if you list starting pitchers, and your pitcher doesn't start, then the bet is refunded. To bet on basketball, tell the ticket writer the bet number of the team you wish to bet, with the point spread, and the amount you wish to wager. The Point Spread: When betting on basketball, the team you bet on must "cover the spread. The point spread is always placed to the immediate right of the team that is favored. In this example, if you bet the Bulls, the Bulls must win by 4 points for you to win your bet.
If you bet the Lakers, any of the following will declare you a winner. Point spreads change constantly. The listed point spread the time you make your bet may be different from the point spread when the game starts. The point spread that is listed on your ticket is your official spread. It makes no difference which team covers the spread. Simply add the final score of each team.This will be 201 upon successful creation of the logistic regression and 200 afterwards.

This is the date and time in which the logistic regression was updated with microsecond precision. Statistical tests to assess the quality of the model's fit to the data. This makes each field have roughly equivalent influence. Example: true category optional The category that best describes the cluster.
G-means iteratively takes existing clusters and tests whether the cluster's neighborhood appears Gaussian. If it doesn't the cluster is split into two. The default is to 5, which seems to work well in most cases. A range of 1 - 10 is acceptable. Specifies the fields that won't be included in the cluster. Example: true name optional The name you want to give to the new cluster. Example: l1 replacement optional Whether sampling should be performed with or without replacement.
A dictionary that maps cluster ids to dataset resources offering per field distribution summaries for each cluster.
