How do you measure how good someone is at predicting binary outcomes? Let's say the person predicts what will happen (A or B) with a certain probability each time. An obvious measure is the average probability that he assigns to the outcomes that happen. But this is complicated by the fact that he might assign a lot of events a probability close to 1/2, therefore his total average will be very close to one half, even though on the events he was confident about he was mostly right.
Is there another measure to quantify his predictive ability?

Brainlet algebra textbook recommendations? Can anybody recommend a good brainlet textbook for my brother in 9th grade doing algebra/precalc. he pretty retarded so the easier the better. he doesnt really have an affinity for math but im going to force him so he doesn't stay retarded. hes basically a wigger and all he does is listen to rap music. should i just get him algebra for dummies or do those books suck?

cheers

If CO2 really is causing global warming and its humanity's job to control the CO2 level so that global warming doesn't become catastrophic, what should the CO2 level be?
Given that we're capable of controlling the CO2 level, there should be a preferred target number to aim for. My own opinion is that the planet's overall carrying capacity for carbon based organic life probably maxes out at about 1500ppm, so thats where I think we should peg it, what does the rest of the the hacker gang known as anonymous think about this issue?

/sci/ vs /lit/

No.13782663 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Today, /sci/ has a 4cc game against /lit/ this afternoon at around 20:20 UTC ( 16:20 Eastern Time). tl;dr The boards of 4chan have football teams and play quarterly tournaments in Konami's PES. The players, stadiums, balls, anthems, and goalhorns, ect are based off of 4chan memes and the cultures of all the involved boards. Today is our first match in this autumn's cup, we will have 3 other games in the group stage (against /b/, /u/ , and /fit/) over the next two weekends. Provided that the team does well, /sci/ can advance to the knockouts and play in this winter's elite cup.
/sci/ vs /lit/ as well as the rest of today's games can be seen here: https://isthisliv.com/4cc/stream.html

pic related is my ranking of the medical specialties, i tried to be as objective as possible when sorting them

do comment if you think there should be any changes so we can create the official /sci/ medical specialty ranking, no nursoids allowed

t. i come from europe so we have some specialties separated like ortho and trauma (which makes ortho even more attractive) and abdominal surgery and generaly surgery is separated here too
