    BioNTech/InstaDeep posted a paper about their new machine learning model, which predicts if a new variant's spike protein sequence is concerning. (Hundreds of new variants are generated every day). It produces 5 scores, pertaining to potential for immune escape or transmissibility, which are aggregated into a single "Pareto" score. The underlying scores are all independently validated against in-vitro assays, which suggests the methodology has some utility.

    But, for what? The model is not proven to accurately predict if a new variant will be of concern. Rather, when it was run on data from Sep 2020 to Nov 2021, and forced to flag 20 sequences every day, it eventually flagged all the WHO's variants of concern (except for Delta), usually over a month in advance. So, it is useful tool to focus surveillance resources, but not to produce a dashboard of "these will be scary".

    Also, the t-tests in Table S.5 don't really indicate that the score is useful. Only 13 variants, out of thousands, are designated as concerning. If most variants are obviously not concerning, getting a low p-value is easy.

    These things are tough to follow in YouTube montage style. I think they are claiming unclassified information is being “hidden” on classified systems. That could still be a problem and a major violation especially if there was intent to hide it. But it is very different than putting classified information out in the open. It is an important distinction.

    Either way, there is a there there and I think Senator Rand knows or is very close.

    Perhaps a flat earth document. What is the penalty for misusing a federal agency logo?

    Just imagine, if this person showed up for a job interview with you, would it even be possible to hold back the laughter from seeing those eyebrows and an absolute lack of any cognitive thought?

    Ya see, these people don't care about destroying the country in front of our eyes, they are laughing their asses off at us, all the way to the bank.

    Even so, if unclassified, there's still a requirement to mark the pages as UNCLASSIFIED and portion mark the paragraphs.

    Barry, do class docs in an open storage (“open paper”) area require markings? Probably….
    Think diode. In a classified area all documents are assumed classified unless marked explicitly unclassified. Easy to get documents in, hard to get them out.

    In an unclassified area ALL classified documents are prohibited, marked properly or not. Everything is assumed unclassified.

    That’s as distilled as it gets and it works surprisingly well but you can imagine all the ways it can go wrong unintentionally or not.

    Two common incidents occur from time to time. 1) an unclassified document, like grandpa’s old notebook, is discovered to be classified. This may or may not be an act of espionage or treason. 2) an unclassified document is kept exclusively in a classified area INTENTIONALLY to limit viewers. That might be prosecutable but not for treason or espionage. That’s covered by the freedom of information act.

    Otherwise, most everything In a classified area, like a grocery list, is unclassified.

    It is not that bad, three meals a day, a free shower once a week, keeps the in-laws away and I get to watch the paint peel.

    Here's an interesting video on Japan's more reasonable approach to mandates and lockdowns, for anyone interested. I wish I lived in a real nation.
