I want to run two 24/7 livestreams at once, both these streams will be on Youtube, is it possible?

I want to run two 24/7 livestreams at once (both on Youtube), using an intel nuc device with the assistance of obs studio software, is this possible?

If not, how can I run 2 24/7 streams at once without needing two computers?

What is the meaning of these lines about love from “Desiderata”?

What is the message being delivered through these lines in “Desiderata” by the poet Max Ehrmann?

Especially do not feign affection
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

I guess the first line means that do not pretend to love someone. And I think the second the second line means that one should never doubt someone’s love for them.

Verifying these resources are accurate written representations for each language using Latin script

I am a bit confused by the languages that use the Latin script, not sure if the version of the Latin script they are using is a transliteration of something else, or if that is actually what the people who speak the language use to write. I’m wondering if one could say if these resources are accurate representations of the selected languages that use the Latin script (that is, this is how each language would be written, at least the symbols part, not necessarily the grammar):

  • Xhosa
  • Zulu
  • Swahili
  • Danish
  • Basque
  • Hawai’ian
  • Maori
  • Navajo
  • Quechua
  • Yoruba
  • Welsh
  • Nahuatl
  • Lokele Kele
  • Esperanto

I would like to know if these linked texts are actually how the respective languages are written (or if they are some undesirable variation). That is, if all the diacritics and whatnot are what is actually used in the common language (or at least in the formal written language). That way I would know if it is a good resource for learning the language.

Part of the reason I am getting confused is after having looked through the IPA for languages like Xhosa. They have all those click consonants, yet from what it looks like they are actually using the Latin script to write it down. This means that the Latin Script letters take on different meaning. And I’m not sure if what that link shows, such as [gq] for [ǃʱ], or [ngc] for [ǀʱ̃], or simple [c] for [ǀ] or [x] for [ǁ] is literally how they write it. Selecting a random word from here such as [wesixhenxe], here is how I would write it: /uesiǁʰenǁe/. Which is why I’m asking this question, I don’t know if these texts map accurately to the transliterations suggested throughout Wikipedia.

Also, if there are any better resources for these languages I would love to know!

The reason why I am asking is because there is just so many variations I’ve seen of the orthographies. I want to find one that is “standard”.

Could you help me identify these vintage bricks with holes in the studs?

I recently got a bulk lot of official Lego pieces from a charity shop. Amongst my treasures I discovered a load of these bricks (about 40 or so).

At first I thought they were some of the first Lego bricks but as far as I can tell Lego have always had the tubes on the underside of their bricks. Can anyone help me to identify their pedigree and/or their age? I have a very strong feeling they’re knock-offs…

Distinguishing features –

  • These bricks have nothing on the underside to stop them from sliding around- no tubes, ridges, nothing.
  • The larger bricks (2×4 upwards) have holes all the way through the studs.
  • All bricks have a slightly sunken profile to the studs
  • Every brick has a random number on the underside i.e. “43”, “78” etc
  • In basic colours of red, blue, yellow, white, black and clear. I’ve also got a green baseplate which has square holes on the underside.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Can anyone identify what kind of block these are? I have had no luck with Google.

They all link together. I added a normal lego to compare size. enter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description here

What are the names of these poker games

My family and I play a poker and some of the games we play can’t seem to found on the internet, there was no internet around when my dad learnt these because it was the 70’s and in Ireland. The first one we play is ‘four in the river’ it’s like Texas hold’em but with 4 cards dealt to each person instead of 2, 4 cards on the table instead of 5 and all turned one at a time.

The next one is called ‘spade in the hole’ everyone is dealt 5 cards 1 card at a time and one must be faced down at all time. You choose faced up or faced down for your next card. The pot is split between the person with the highest spade faced down and the best hand with all five cards (e.g. If you are dealt the ace of spades faced down and you keep it down then you know you’ll win half.)

Why are these two summations in the calculation of the variance equal?

Background: The screenshot below is the book solution to a 1st year probability question (Sheldon Ross self test 7.12). I understand everything except the last equality.

My Question: Is the red box equal to the blue box below? Can you show me step by step how to do it? I’m guessing there’s some identity that will make it easier…

My Attempt: Unfortunately in lieu of being able to solve the question using math I put it in python and got different results for the red and blue box… but my script could be wrong. Thanks for your help.

n = 5

redBox = 0
for i in range(1,n):
    for j in range(i+1,n+1):
        redBox += (i-1)*(j-n)
redBox = 2*redBox / ((n-2)**2 * (n-1))

blueBox = 0
for i in range(1,n):
    blueBox += (i-1)*(n-i)*(n-i-1)
blueBox = -blueBox / ((n-2)*(n-1)**2)


and for $n=5$ I get $text{red box} = -0.277$ vs $text{blue box} = -0.20833$.

How to format these strings in python

I have some problem about .format() when I use it in matplotlib plotting: Suppose, I have a matrix A = np.column_stack([[0, 1], [-1, 0]]) and I have to display this matrix in my plot. Also this matrix may be changed as per my need. So I use the following code but it gives error. Can you please tell me how to do this task. Also I faced a similar problem when I try to display a vector like, $2hat{i}+5 hat{j}$:

I try the following for the matrix:

A = np.column_stack([[0, 1], [-1, 0]])
matrix = r'$left( begin{array}{ll} {a11} & {a12} \ {a21} & {a22} end{array} right)$'.format(a11=A[0][0], a12=A[0][1], a21=A[1][0], a22=A[1][1])

I try the following for the vector:

x = [2,3]
plt.text(2,3,'${a}hat{i}+{b}hat{j}$'.format(a= x[0], b=x[1]))

Why don’t these sketches produce a similar output?

I compiled the following two sketches with the compiler used by the Arduino IDE and ran them on an Arduino UNO (smd edition).
I’m using:

  • Arduino IDE v. 1.8.0
  • Arduino AVR Boards v. 1.6.20


void setup() {

  unsigned long a, b;
  //unsigned long c, d;

  a = micros();
  for (unsigned long i = 0; i != 1000000; i++) digitalRead(13);
  b = micros();
  Serial.println(b - a);

  //c = micros();
  //for (unsigned long i = 0; i != 1000000; i++) digitalRead(13);
  //d = micros();
  //Serial.println(d - c);


void loop () {}


void setup() {

  unsigned long a, b;
  unsigned long c, d;

  a = micros();
  for (unsigned long i = 0; i != 1000000; i++) digitalRead(13);
  b = micros();
  Serial.println(b - a);

  c = micros();
  for (unsigned long i = 0; i != 1000000; i++) digitalRead(13);
  d = micros();
  Serial.println(d - c);


void loop () {}

These were the outputs on the serial monitor:

  1. 2452320

  2. 3332640

Why did each of the two for loops in the second sketch take roughly 33% more time to execute than the loop in the first one?
