The inspiration for it all began on our trip to the Amalfi Coast this spring, where Barclay and I became wholeheartedly convinced that we needed more 100%-from-scratch Italian food happening here at home in our little kitchen. Stat. So Barclay set his sights on perfecting homemade mozzarella this spring (more on that to come) and I came home ready to dive into the world of homemade pastas, gnocchis, and breads of all kinds. I even broke my minimalist no-new-kitchen-appliances-while-we’re-in-Europe rule and brought home an adorable little traditional pasta maker and wooden drying rack to make our pasta dreams come true.
First off, the fresh pasta dough itself is a breeze to make. If you happen to own a food processor, the dough can be prepped in less than 5 minutes. (Or you can make it by hand or in a stand mixer in less than 15 minutes.) The process of rolling out the noodles is also easier than I expected, especially once I got the hang of using my little pasta maker. (I’ve included instructions below as well for how to roll out pasta using a stand mixer or a rolling pin by hand.) I’ve also enjoyed experimenting with the various different pasta flours and discovering which ones I like best for different occasions. (Short answer — I prefer “00” flour most of the time, but occasionally mix it with semolina for heartier shapes or sauces.) Mostly, though, we’ve just enjoyed eating fresh pasta. It has such a delicious, fresh, chewy, unmistakable bite to it. And it has instantly kicked some of our favorite pasta recipes up a mega notch. (Here’s lookin’ at you, cacio e pepe!)
Also fun? Inviting a group of girlfriends over on a Friday night to share a bottle of rosé as we roll out a batch of homemade pasta together. And having leftover linigune in the fridge to pull out for a quick dinner on a busy weeknight. And surprising friends and neighbors with a tupperware full of cute little fresh pasta nests as gifts. And being “that home” that now has fresh pappardelle casually draped and drying by our sunny living room window.
So to continue with Italian Week here on the blog today, I am sharing everything I’ve learned so far about the art of making some seriously delicious homemade pasta. I’ve tried to include lots of different methods and options to work with whatever you have in your kitchen. So please poke around and find whatever method works best for you — and report back if you give homemade pasta a try! I would love to hear how it goes.
Flour: I really love to make my homemade pasta with “00” flour, which yields the silkiest pasta. But if I am making a sauce that is a bit more hearty, I will use half “00” and half semolina flour, which makes the pasta a bit more sturdy and helps the sauce to cling to the pasta better. That said, any of these three flours (or a combination of them) will work with this recipe:
Semolina flour: A heartier flour, which can help the pasta cling better to the sauce. (Semolina is also my favorite flour to sprinkle on the cutting board and pasta, while you are in the process of rolling out the dough.)

If you’re not an athlete, and your heart rate is lower than average, you may be interested to discover that bradycardia, as it’s known, is more strongly correlated with psychopathy than smoking is with lung cancer.
I'm having a few days off so I want to spend the time learning Julia. I'm working mostly in R and Python, and my work involved a lot of Bayesian stuffs which I usually use either Stan or PyMC3 for. Recently I've been playing around with Julia, and I've heard a lot of praises for Turing.jl for probabilistic programming. I wonder if anyone here ever used it? What are some pros and cons against, say, Stan or PyMC3?
Turing.jl dev here. There are various differences between Turing, Stan and PyMC. Most importantly, Turing is only adding a thin layer to your Julia code, and you can, therefore, use any Julia code or library that exists in your models. This means you can easily use NN, the GPU, ODEs and whatever you like. By doing so, Turing is also more easily hackable. Another big difference is that Turing allows you to combine samplers and provides inference algorithms for continuous and discrete RVs. For the continuous case, we have an excellent implementation of Stans HMC and other variants, provided in a library that also can be used independently. The support for discrete RVs is mostly using particle Gibbs, but we are working on a JAGS style sampler atm. That said, Turing is much younger than the other PPLs. We probably lack specific tools, or you might run in some corner cases we didn’t think of, but we are working hard on getting bugs fixed ASAP and respond to questions quickly.
What's with that face? What's that look on your face? Open your mouth cunt and give me an answer. Open your mouth and put a sir on before and after you open your mouth and spit out your cum. Got it, Tadpole?
OK! we will now begin our morning erection summit. Speak in the language of the dick here. I want you to listen to me like you do when you listen to a hypnotic voice, with a little pussy juice coming out of your eardrums to get a good eardrum passage. That's good!

It is aimed at Asians such as Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Filipino , and taxis and trains that refuse to board Chinese, Korean, Japanese have appeared   ].
In the ranking of the number of infected people in the world, the United States is alone, with 1.34 million people, accounting for more than a quarter of the total infected people of 402 million people as of May 10.
I think that the trilingual diplomacy of Britain has created the situation in the Middle East, where terrorism is frequent nowadays, and has repeatedly carried out wrongdoing by repeatedly discriminating against blacks, Indians, and yellow races.
