We propose the nuclear norm penalty as an alternative to the ridge penalty for regularized multinomial regression. This convex relaxation of reduced-rank multinomial regression has the advantage of leveraging underlying structure among the response categories to make better predictions. We apply our method, nuclear penalized multinomial regression (NPMR), to Major League Baseball play-by-play data to predict outcome probabilities based on batter-pitcher matchups. The interpretation of the results meshes well with subject-area expertise and also suggests a novel understanding of what differentiates players.
Need charts for baseball-handbook.com and evaluated this, google charts, and d3.js. Google charts does not work, d3.js is extremely complicated, and still looking into this.
Update: Decided to go with d3.js because it has a command that can grab csv or json data streamed from another script. Google and amCharts seem to be for more static one off charts whereas baseball-handbook needs a chart for over 15K baseball players generated from a DB. It can be done using Google and amCharts but it’s messy.
Meanwhile it took me 4 hours to figure out how to get a label correctly rotated 90 degrees on a right side axis in a dual Y line chart using d3.js. amCharts is very nice and still may use them for one offs in the future.
The fundamental problem, however, is Republican insiders who have convinced themselves that to keep and hold power, they need to trash the shared beliefs that hold American democracy together.
Months after the 2018 groundbreaking, the company was racing to hire the 260 people needed to receive the first tranche of payments from the lucrative subsidy package passed by then-Gov. Scott Walker. Recruiters were told to hit the number but given little in the way of job descriptions. Soon, the office began to fill with people who had nothing to do. Many just sat in their cubicles watching Netflix and playing games on their phones.
Need to generate charts for the baseball-handbook.com website and looking into php options. Google seems like the simplest solution right now. The above site breaks down each option nicely.
Here’s more info about Google Charts.

Programmers wanting to avoid the Y2K bug had two broad options: entirely rewrite their code, or adopt a quick fix called “windowing”, which would treat all dates from 00 to 20, as from the 2000s, rather than the 1900s. An estimated 80 per cent of computers fixed in 1999 used the quicker, cheaper option.
“Windowing, even during Y2K, was the worst of all possible solutions because it kicked the problem down the road,” says Dylan Mulvin at the London School of Economics.
A registry could abuse these powers to do significant harm to the global NGO sector, intentionally or not. We cannot afford to put them into the hands of a private equity firm that has not earned the trust of the NGO community. .ORG must be managed by a leader that puts the needs of NGOs over profits.
