In some circles, we know, she would never be admitted, but with good dinners, and large parties, there will always be those who will be glad of her acquaintance; and there is, undoubtedly, more liberality and candour on those points than formerly. Thus Wickham still hopes to be able to marry a "well-portioned" woman in a "fortune-hunting" marriage even after his misadventure with Lydia. Jane Austen's most explicit comment on this double standard is in her dismissal of the character Henry Crawford at the end of Mansfield Park who had run off with Mrs. In this world the penalty is less equal than could be wished; but
Randy Olson Posted in analysisdata visualizationmachine learning Last week, Tracy Staedter from Discovery News proposed an interesting idea to me: Planning the road trip One of the hardest parts of planning a road trip is deciding where to stop along the way.
Given how large and diverse the U. To stand a chance at making an interesting road trip, Tracy and I laid out a few rules from the beginning: The trip must make at least one stop in all 48 states in the contiguous U. The trip must be taken by car and never leave the U.
With those objectives in mind, Tracy compiled a list of 50 major U. Tracy wrote about that process on Discovery News here. The result was an epic itinerary with a mix of inner city exploration, must-see historical sites, and beautiful natural landscapes. All that was left was to figure out the path that would minimize our time spent driving and maximize our time spent enjoying the landmarks.
Dean Franklin Computing the optimal road trip across the U. Thankfully, the Google Maps API makes this information freely available, so all it took was a short Python script to calculate the distance and time driven for all 2, routes between the 50 landmarks. Now with the 2, landmark-landmark distances, our next step was to approach the task as a traveling salesman problem: We needed to order the list of landmarks such that the total distance traveled between them is as small as possible if we visited them in order.
This means finding the route that backtracks as little as possible, which is especially difficult when visiting Florida and the Northeast. With 50 landmarks to put in order, we would have to exhaustively evaluate 3 x possible routes to find the shortest one.
To provide some context: The traveling salesman problem is so notoriously difficult to solve that even xkcd poked fun at it: Clearly, we need a smarter solution if we want to take this epic road trip in our lifetime. Thankfully, the traveling salesman problem has been well-studied over the years and there are many ways for us to solve it in a reasonable amount of time.
