A Fantasy Sports Wizard’s Winning Formula | WSJ.Money

Albertson is in a completely different league. In between attending business-school classes and cramming for exams, Albertson plays a new high-volume variety of fantasy sports that allows him to compete in hundreds of leagues each day. He may be the most consistently profitable fantasy sports enthusiast in the country. And the reason is that to him, fantasy sports isn’t really about sports. It’s about data. He doesn’t trust his eyes to tell him who the best players are; he only trusts the numbers, which tell him who is overvalued and who is undervalued. Albertson’s strategy is almost literally a formula, and it bears little resemblance to casual fandom. “It’s all about having logical inputs that lead to logical outputs,” he says.

The result of all this evening’s research and effort is that Albertson’s algorithm determined the optimal lineup for a fantasy basketball team. More precisely, on Albertson’s command, it produced hundreds of lineups that collectively represent a diverse portfolio that will, he hopes, generate thousands of dollars in profits by the end of the night’s games, in about six hours.

He doesn’t make money every night, and in fact ends up in the red on a regular basis. But he wins more than he loses, the benchmark all good traders strive to meet. Last year, Albertson took home more than $200,000. This year, he projects his business will make almost a million dollars.

A Device with Unlimited Potential
By Benjamin Litman on May 8, 2014

I can’t say enough about this product. Most impressive is the company’s commitment to addressing what few flaws the product has. I would recommend (and have recommended) this product to anyone I know who plays golf. I’ve organized my review by category for ready reference. If you don’t believe what I have to say, note that GAME GOLF already has the backing of the PGA of America, Golf Channel, and numerous prominent touring professionals (including Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood, and Jim Furyk). And it’s already being sold in Apple stores worldwide. That’s heady stuff for a technology startup. But, as its slogan goes, GAME GOLF is, indeed, changing the game.

*Setup*

I won’t say much here, as the GAME GOLF website ([...]) has a handy video explaining the setup (and much more). But I will say that it’s as easy to set up as it is to use. Simply screw the corresponding red tag flush into the handle of each club, complete the online registration, charge the device, and you’re good to go.

*Ease of Use*

“Tag and go” might sound too good to be true, but it is true. After you turn on the device, and the white light (alone) begins to blink, tag the butt end of each club to the bottom of the device at the location of your shot, hit the shot, go to your next shot, and repeat. It’s that simple (you don’t even have to select the course you’re playing; the device figures that out for you). The hard part, at least at first, is remembering to tag. Within a round or two, however, it becomes second nature. Because tagging (which captures both (1) which club you’re hitting and (2) the location from which you’re hitting it–i.e., the two inputs that allow GAME GOLF to compile most every statistic you could ever want) is so critical to performance of the device, the device includes three different indicators of a successful tag. Upon tagging, the device beeps (loud enough for you to hear, but quiet enough to not bother player partners), vibrates, and turns green. If you don’t hear a beep or feel a vibration and are unsure of whether you have tagged, check the device to see if the green light is on. If you tagged, the green light remains on for 60 seconds. Therefore, if you look down and the green light is not on, odds are you forgot to tag–so tag again. As for when to tag, you can do it before or after your shot, as long as you tag at the location of your shot. I have played 22 rounds with the device, and, from the beginning, have tagged as the first move in my pre-shot routine. I pick my club, stand next to the ball, and, while checking out my lie, tag the device. Then I take my practice swing and go. I would advise tagging before you hit, as opposed to after, because the mind is often less attentive after you hit (especially if you hit a bad shot). As for where to place the device, I have found it easiest–and least intrusive–on the outside of my left hip (I’m a righty). I never feel it there (whereas when I placed it closer to my midsection, I would feel it while bending down to read putts, pick up tees, etc.). Note that the device is very sensitive, so if you are wearing a sweater or rain jacket, you don’t need to lift the sweater/jacket before tagging; the tag will go right through your clothing with ease.

*Ease of Editing*

The post-round editing process is fun, if for no other reason than that you get to do what you would do anyway (relive your round), but with images and statistics to confirm your every move. You plug your device into your computer (for now, you cannot plug your device into a tablet or phone), the GAME GOLF transfer software automatically opens, and you click on the button that downloads your round(s) (the device stores up to 9 rounds at a time, making it usable during buddies trips where you leave your computer at home). Once the round has been downloaded (it takes 1-2 minutes), click the view button and you will be taken to the GAME GOLF website. There, you will see your round visually depicted and overlaid onto a Google Earth image of the course you just played. It’s like Shot Tracker on PGATour.com, but better (because you’re seeing the actual hole, not a graphical computerized image of it). You can then edit your round to ensure that all shots were tagged (you can easily add or delete shots, including penalty strokes), and tagged in the right location (you can easily move the location of each shot). Sometimes, the location is off by even more than the advertised standard deviation. But, instead of getting frustrated, just move the location of your shot and remember that, even for the pros, Shot Tracker occasionally gets it wrong. After you have finished editing your round, click “sign your round” and the real fun then begins. The folks at GAME GOLF will take the data from your rounds and populate all the statistics you usually try to track in minuscule writing on your scorecard (fairways hit, greens in regulation, scrambling) and many more. You can also share, and comment on, your round with your friends or with pros.

*Benefits of Use*

The benefits of GAME GOLF are many. Having all of your rounds available electronically in one place (i.e., no more piles of scorecards stuffed in shoeboxes) is a huge convenience. And being able to share your rounds with friends and compare yourself to them (and to professionals) is great fun—and, let’s face it, what all golfers do anyway. As for the “will it make me a better player?” question, I say yes. First, the tagging process (and the knowledge that every shot you hit will be recorded and tracked) adds a certain seriousness to playing that is otherwise absent. With seriousness comes added focus and, typically, better results. Second, the statistics that the product generates will help you better understand how far you actually hit, and therefore should be hitting, each club (the “club performance” graphic is probably the coolest statistic currently provided) and what your tendencies are. Although the statistics currently provided are rather basic (driving distance, fairways hit, greens in regulation, scrambling percentage, putts per round, percentage of 1-putts, 2-putts, 3-putts, and percentage of pars, bogeys, double bogeys, triple bogeys), the genius of the product is that the company can continue to generate all the various more complicated statistics available while never having to change the device itself. That is, unlike many technologies (e.g., the iPhone), you won’t have to keep upgrading your hardware (i.e., the device and the tags)—and spending money–with GAME GOLF. Instead, all of the improvements will be to the software. If you’re not satisfied with the statistics currently provided, remember that it took the PGATour years to develop ShotLink (the professional equivalent of GAME GOLF) and the statistics that the data it collects can generate. In just a few months, GAME GOLF has already added many new statistics that I and other customers have suggested. So just be patient and appreciate how amazing GAME GOLF already is. The company’s commitment to getting better is what ensures that GAME GOLF will fulfill its near-infinite potential.

*Flaws*

Although GAME GOLF has GPS built in, it doesn’t display yardages during your round–meaning that you need to carry another device (i.e., one of the many DMDs, or distance-measuring devices) if you want to measure distances. That would be the only change to the hardware I could see in the future (i.e., adding a yardage display to the top of the device), but I also appreciate GAME GOLF’s desire to do what it does best and leave the rest to other products. Google spread itself too thin over the last few years with too many new products, and then realized it was best to scale back to what made it so good. So this is a minor complaint. The only other “flaw” is the current lack of putting and other more advanced statistics. But that, too, is a minor complaint, because more advanced putting statistics are necessary only if you’re good enough to be a professional, and the other more advanced statistics are currently being worked on by the GAME GOLF staff. Again, because they have all the inputs to provide those statistics, it’s just a matter of time before they provide them. One statistic that is currently lacking but that should be very easy to provide is handicap. It is currently an input (i.e., in filling out your user profile, you plug in your handicap), but it should be an output—and will be more accurate—based on your scores and the courses you play (both of which GAME GOLF captures). But when I mentioned this to the GAME GOLF staff, they said they were working on that, too. Again, they know they have room to improve, and they are doing everything in their power to do so. That is all you can ask for in a technology (or any) company.

*Customer Service*

This is the best part of GAME GOLF. Considering how good everything else is, that’s saying a lot. I have NEVER seen a company more responsive to the needs and demands of customers. This was true from the start. I didn’t receive my GAME GOLF before I left for a golf trip to Tucson this February, so the GAME GOLF folk rerouted my device to arrive at my hotel in Tucson. Although, as with many companies these days, there is no phone number to call, their customer-service folk are incredibly responsive via email (and via the user forums on the “support” page of the website). Every single person I’ve dealt with has been a pleasure and has fully answered my questions and concerns.

Three Wise Men | Rabbi Daniel Lapin

I found this article by Rabbi Daniel Lapin very interesting, and I thought I would share it. I’m not a Jew, but I like Rabbi Daniel Lapin a lot. He used to host a show on one of the conservative radio stations in the Seattle area.

What if I told you that you could change how intelligent you are – or your children will be? Perhaps you’re saying, “That’s ridiculous. IQ is immutable and unlikely to be altered by one’s behavior. Or maybe you’re saying, “I don’t know, but if it’s true sign me up!”

However you may have reacted, I hope you’re intrigued enough by this proposition of ancient Jewish wisdom to try it out for size.  I think you’ll be surprised at how precisely it accounts for your experiences in the real world.

We read of three men whose wisdom was admired and whose guidance and leadership was sought: Joseph, Daniel, and Mordechai.  Each withstood alluring attempts to get them to abandon restraint.

Watch Joseph as his employer’s wife, by all accounts a most attractive woman, tries to seduce him.

Here is a video of Rabbi Daniel Lapin on the Glenn Beck Show. They are discussing the Tower of Babel, and how people are really like stones but leaders wish to remake into bricks.

Michael Lewis on the King of Human Error | Vanity Fair

‘The paper that resulted five years later, the abovementioned “Prospect Theory,” not only proved that one of the central premises of economics was seriously flawed—the so-called utility theory, “based on elementary rules (axioms) of rationality”’

The paper that resulted five years later, the abovementioned “Prospect Theory,” not only proved that one of the central premises of economics was seriously flawed—the so-called utility theory, “based on elementary rules (axioms) of rationality”—but also spawned a sub-field of economics known as behavioral economics. This field attracted the interest of a Harvard undergraduate named Paul DePodesta. With a mind prepared to view markets and human decision-making as less than perfectly rational, DePodesta had gone into sports management, been hired by Billy Beane to work for the Oakland A’s, and proceeded to exploit the unreason of baseball experts. A dotted line connected the Israeli psychologists to what would become a revolution in sports management. Outside of baseball there had been, for decades, an intellectual revolt, led by a free thinker named Bill James, devoted to creating new baseball knowledge. The movement generated information of value in the market for baseball players, but the information went ignored by baseball insiders. The market’s willful ignorance had a self-reinforcing quality: the longer the information was ignored, the less credible it became. After all, if this stuff had any value, why didn’t baseball insiders pay it any attention? To see the value in what Bill James and his crowd were up to you had first to believe that a market as open and transparent as the market for baseball players could ignore valuable information—that is, that it could be irrational. Kahneman and Tversky had made that belief reasonable.

How to take a low budget baseball team to the top of the major leagues | 1913 Intel

IN THE END, he came up with a heretical theory: One extra point of on-base percentage is worth three times an extra point of slugging percentage. In other words, someone who could get on base, no matter how he did it, was worth considerably more than a flashy, crowd-pleasing power hitter—and came considerably cheaper, too.

This led to Beane’s making some highly unusual choices:

How to take a low budget baseball team to the top of the major leagues | 1913 Intel

So modern economics theory has some serious flaws, but an even bigger question is why these flaws persist? Why don’t the best ideas rise to the top?

In a system where the strong people are not rewarded sufficiently, and the mediocre and weak are not punished sufficiently, then over time the strong people leave the system and the remaining have an incentive to stay. This leaves a system with mostly mediocre and weak players with their ideas. The best ideas are now on the outside and are never properly considered by the system players.

Unblock Hulu: A seriously cool free proxy service for unblocking Hulu – Hola.Org

“Used by over 13M people, Hola lets you enjoy any site from any country”

Hola.Org operates a peer-to-peer model with no central server. Your signal to Hulu gets routed through many different client computers in the USA. Those client computers are from people just like you who have Hola software installed. Each client only gets a tny amount of traffic.

Get 4 hours of free service per day. If you need more then it cost $5 per month for the premium service.

The Hola! client software makes bypassing these blocks trivial. When a user wants to visit a blocked site, the Hola! client takes that request, encrypts it and sends it to another computer with Hola! installed.

That second computer works as a proxy by then decrypting the request and then accessing the relevant service. The resulting content is again encrypted by the second computer and forwarded to the original user.

For speed and efficiency, the Hola! client will use several proxies – with each handling a small part of the traffic.

The lack of a central server in a peer-to-peer model such as this means that Hola! is difficult to block – a successful blocklist would need to be constantly updated and could run to thousands of internet addresses as it would need to block every user of the Hola! client.

Say Hola! to the newest route around web censorship

Cloud Atlas (film): Gluing the stories together

Cloud Atlas is “an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.” Six separate stories across time that are connected. I’ve put together a connection point summary to help glue the stories together. Each story leaves us with something that connects it to the next story: A journal, letters/recording, manuscript, screenplay, archived story and a message.

Understand that as society pushes into the future it uses a feedback loop process – the past heavily influences the future. Cloud Atlas shows us, via a serious of stories, how that process works, and how it can crash society.

Plot

The film consists of six interrelated and interwoven stories spanning different time periods. The film is structured, according to novelist David Mitchell, “as a sort of pointillist mosaic.”

Pacific Islands, 1849

Adam Ewing, an American lawyer from San Francisco, has come to the Chatham Islands to conclude a business arrangement with Reverend Gilles Horrox for his father-in-law, Haskell Moore. He witnesses the whipping of a Moriori slave, Autua, who later stows away on the ship. He confronts Ewing and convinces Ewing to advocate for him to join the crew as a freeman. Meanwhile, Dr. Henry Goose slowly poisons Ewing, claiming it to be the cure for a parasitic worm, aiming to steal Ewing’s valuables. When Goose attempts to administer the fatal dose, Autua saves Ewing. Returning to the United States, Ewing and his wife Tilda denounce her father’s complicity in slavery and leave San Francisco to join the abolition movement.

Cambridge, 1936

Robert Frobisher, a bisexual English composer, finds work as an amanuensis to aging composer Vyvyan Ayrs, allowing Frobisher the time and inspiration to compose his own masterpiece, “The Cloud Atlas Sextet.” While working for Ayrs, Frobisher begins reading the published chronicle of Adam Ewing’s journal which he has found among the many books at Ayrs’s mansion. He never finishes reading the journal and notes in a letter that “A half-finished book is, after all, a half-finished love affair.” When “The Cloud Atlas Sextet” is revealed to Ayrs, he wishes to take credit for Frobisher’s work, claiming it is the result of their collaboration and threatens to expose his scandalous background if he resists. Frobisher shoots and wounds Ayrs and flees to a hotel. Perhaps spurred by his inability to complete Ewing’s book, he finishes “The Cloud Atlas Sextet”, then commits suicide, just before his lover Rufus Sixsmith arrives.

Journalist Luisa Rey meets an older Sixsmith, now a nuclear physicist. Sixsmith tips off Rey to a conspiracy regarding the safety of a new nuclear reactor run by Lloyd Hooks, but is killed by Hooks’ hitman Bill Smoke before he can give her a report that proves it. Rey finds and reads Frobisher’s letters to Sixsmith, resulting in her tracking down a vinyl recording of Frobisher’s “The Cloud Atlas Sextet.” Isaac Sachs, another scientist at the power plant, passes her a copy of Sixsmith’s report. However, Smoke kills Sachs by blowing up the plane in which he is flying, and later also runs Rey’s car off a bridge. Although she escapes, the report is destroyed. With help from the plant’s head of security, Joe Napier, who knew her father, she evades another attempt against her life which results in Smoke’s death and exposes the plot to use a nuclear accident for the benefit of oil companies.

65-year-old publisher Timothy Cavendish reaps a windfall when Dermot Hoggins, the gangster author of Knuckle Sandwich, publicly murders a critic who gave the novel a harsh review. When Hoggins’s brothers threaten Cavendish’s life to get his share of the profits, Cavendish asks for help from his wealthy brother Denholme. Avenging an old affair with his wife, Denholme tricks Timothy into hiding in a nursing home (which is located in Ayrs’ old mansion), where he is held against his will and abused by the head nurse, Noakes. While there, Cavendish reads a manuscript of a novel based on Luisa Rey’s story. Plotting with three other residents, Cavendish escapes and goes on to write a screenplay of his story.

Neo Seoul, 2144

Sonmi~451 is a genetically-engineered fabricant, a human clone and slave worker living a compliant life of servitude as a server at a fast food restaurant. She recounts her memories before an interviewer, an archivist whose purpose is to document her thoughts and story for the future. Sonmi begins by recounting a day in the life of a fabricant like herself. She tells how she was exposed to ideas of rebellion and liberation (based on Cavendish’s adventures), and how she was rescued from captivity by Commander Hae-Joo Chang, a member of a rebel movement known as “Union”. He smuggles her to a residence in Neo Seoul where he exposes Sonmi to the larger world, including the banned writings of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and a film version of Timothy Cavendish’s “ghastly ordeal”. They are found and Sonmi is captured. Hae-Joo rescues her, introduces her to the leader of the rebel movement, then shows her that fabricants are not freed at the end of their contract as they are told, but are killed and “recycled” into food for other clones. She decides that the system of society based on slavery and exploitation is intolerable, and makes a public broadcast of her story and manifesto. Hae-Joo is killed in a firefight and Sonmi is captured again. After telling her story to the archivist, she is executed.

Post: Sonmi-451 tells her story to an archivist.

Big Isle, 106 winters after The Fall

Zachry lives in a primitive society called “The Valley” after most of humanity has died during “The Fall,” a largely-unexplained apocalyptic event. The Valley tribesmen speak a degenerated form of English, and worship a goddess called Sonmi (Sonmi~451), their sacred text taken from the broadcast of her manifesto. Zachry is plagued by hallucinations of a demonic figure called “Old Georgie” who manipulates him into giving in to his fears. One day, Zachry, Adam (Zachry’s brother-in-law) and Zachry’s nephew are attacked by the cannibalistic Kona tribe. Zachry himself runs into hiding and watches as his companions are murdered. His village is visited by Meronym, a member of the “Prescients”, an advanced society still using the last remnants of technology. Her mission is to find a remote communication station called Mauna Sol and send a message to Earth’s off-world colonies. Catkin, Zachry’s niece, falls sick, and in exchange for saving her, Zachry agrees to guide Meronym into the mountains to find the Atlas. At the station, Meronym reveals that Sonmi was not a deity as the Valley tribe believes, but a human who died long ago. After returning, Zachry finds his tribe dead, slaughtered by the Kona. He kills the Kona chief, rescues Catkin, and Meronym saves them both from an assault by Kona tribesmen. Zachry and Catkin join Meronym and the Prescients as their ship leaves Big Island (Hawaii).

Prologue / Epilogue

A seventh time period, several decades after the events on Big Island, is featured in the film’s prologue and epilogue: Zachry is revealed to have been telling these stories to his grandchildren on a beach near a city on an extraterrestrial Earth colony. The epilogue also confirms that Meronym succeeded in sending the message and traveled to the off-world colony where she lives with Zachry.
