PyTorch announces the availability of PyTorch Hub for improving machine learning research

first_imgYesterday, the team at PyTorch announced the availability of PyTorch Hub which is a simple API and workflow that offers the basic building blocks to improve machine learning research reproducibility. Reproducibility plays an important role in research as it is an essential requirement for a lot of fields related to research including the ones based on machine learning techniques. But most of the machine learning based research publications are either not reproducible or are too difficult to reproduce. With the increase in the number of research publications, tens of thousands of papers being hosted on arXiv and submissions to conferences, research reproducibility has now become even more important. Though most of the publications are accompanied by code and trained models that are useful but still it is difficult for users to figure out for most of the steps, themselves. PyTorch Hub consists of a pre-trained model repository that is designed to facilitate research reproducibility and also to enable new research. It provides built-in support for Colab, integration with Papers With Code and also contains a set of models including classification and segmentation, transformers, generative, etc. By adding a simple hubconf.py file, it supports the publication of pre-trained models to a GitHub repository, which provides a list of models that are to be supported and a list of dependencies that are required for running the models. For example, one can check out the torchvision, huggingface-bert and gan-model-zoo repositories. Considering the case of torchvision hubconf.py: In torchvision repository, each of the model files can function and can be executed independently. These model files don’t require any package except for PyTorch and they don’t need separate entry-points. A hubconf.py can help users to send a pull request based on the template mentioned on the GitHub page. The official blog post reads, “Our goal is to curate high-quality, easily-reproducible, maximally-beneficial models for research reproducibility. Hence, we may work with you to refine your pull request and in some cases reject some low-quality models to be published. Once we accept your pull request, your model will soon appear on Pytorch hub webpage for all users to explore.” PyTorch Hub allows users to explore available models, load a model as well as understand the kind of methods available for any given model. Below mentioned are few of the examples: Explore available entrypoints: With the help of torch.hub.list() API, users can now list all available entrypoints in a repo.  PyTorch Hub also allows auxillary entrypoints apart from pretrained models such as bertTokenizer for preprocessing in the BERT models and making the user workflow smoother. Load a model: With the help of torch.hub.load() API, users can load a model entrypoint. This API can also provide useful information about instantiating the model. Most of the users are happy about this news as they think it will be useful for them. A user commented on HackerNews, “I love that the tooling for ML experimentation is becoming more mature. Keeping track of hyperparameters, training/validation/test experiment test set manifests, code state, etc is both extremely crucial and extremely necessary.” Another user commented, “This will also make things easier for people writing algorithms on top of one of the base models.” To know more about this news, check out PyTorch’s blog post.

Costa Rica takes on Nicaragua on Wednesday afternoon in Ticos first match

Costa Rica takes on Nicaragua on Wednesday afternoon in Ticos first match

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica dominates Nicaragua, 3-0, in national team’s first match since World Cup Watch Costa Rica’s three (yes, three!) goals in the victory over Uruguay Arsenal’s Joel Campbell stars on Costa Rica roster for Ticos’ first post-World Cup match Costa Rica’s Óscar Duarte, the first Nicaraguan to score in the World Cup, receives wonderful homecoming celebration Expectations will be sky-high for Costa Rica at this week’s Central America Cup — even though the team only will carry a handful of players fromits history-making World Cup squad.  Fortunately for the Ticos, they open the tournament against the worst team in the region.Costa Rica will play Nicaragua on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. The Ticos come into the tournament as defending champions. But this tournament will feel a little different for Costa Rica. The Ticos not only enter as the best squad in Central America, but are coming off a World Cup performance where La Sele proved to be one of the best teams on the planet.The Ticos will hold their highest ever international ranking (No. 15) when they face Nicaragua (No. 175) in the first match of a triple-header in the U.S. capital. Still, the team only consists of seven players who saw the pitch in Brazil, including star forward Joel Campbell, newly anointed team captain Celso Borges and starting defender Óscar Duarte. Costa Rica also has a new coach, Paulo Wanchope, after the Costa Rica Football Federation (FEDEFUT) endured an ugly, public breakup with World Cup coach Jorge Luis Pinto in late July.The fallout was highlighted by the Colombian coach accusing his assistant Wanchope of betraying him. Pinto said Wanchope tried to have him fired during World Cup qualifying. But Wanchope is just a temporary fix at head coach as FEDEFUT searches for a veteran foreign coach to take over the team later this fall. Still, the pressure to succeed will be high for the former highly decorated Tico player and FEDEFUT. Both parties were subject to much vitriol from fans after Pinto’s ouster.On the other hand, Costa Rica shouldn’t need its best players to succeed at a tournament the country has won seven times in 12 editions.In the 2014 World Cup, La Sele bested Uruguay, Italy and Greece to reach the quarterfinals. The Ticos pushed three-time World Cup runners-up the Netherlands to penalty kicks before getting eliminated. At the Central America Cup, Costa Rica will take on a different class of opponent. Honduras is the lone Central America Cup participant besides the Ticos that qualified for this summer’s World Cup — and the Hondurans flamed out with three consecutive losses in the group stage.Honduras faces Belize following the match between the Ticos and the Nicas. The final match of the day pits Guatemala versus El Salvador.All seven countries in Central America compete in the cup. The top four teams secure an automatic berth to next year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup. Costa Rica is in Group B with Nicaragua and Panama. Group A contains the remaining sides: Honduras, Belize, Guatemala and El Salvador. The tournament will take place in sites throughout the United States for the first time.Costa Rica plays Panama on Sunday in Dallas, Texas, with a berth in the Central America Cup championship likely on the line. The title game is set for Sept. 13 in Los Angeles, California.Keeper Patrick Pemberton, who likely will replace Keylor Navas in net for the tourney, insisted the Ticos will not underestimate their regional rivals. Nevertheless, Costa Rica should feel confident about its odds of repeating as champions. Campbell, a 22-year-old phenom who remains a member of English squad Arsenal after a controversial week, is easily the most talented player in the tournament. And the second and third best players at the cup might also be found on the Costa Rican roster.COSTA RICA CENTRAL AMERICA CUP ROSTER:Goalies: Daniel Cambronero* (Herediano); Kevin Briceño (Saprissa); Patrick Pemberton* (Alajuelense)Defenders: Johnny Acosta* (Alajuelense); Porfirio Lopez (Alajuelense); Juan Diego Madrigal (Inter Baku); Óscar Duarte* (Club Brugge); Christopher Meneses (IFK Norrköping); Dave Myrie* (Herediano); Pablo Salazar (Herediano)Midfielders: Celso Borges* (AIK); Armando Alonso (Alajuelense); David Ramirez (Saprissa); Rodney Wallace (Portland Timbers); José Miguel Cubero* (Blackpool); Juan Gabriel Bustos (Saprissa); Johan Venegas (Alajuelense); Oscar Esteban Granados* (Herediano)Forwards: Joel Campbell* (Arsenal); Johan Condega (Cartaginés); Marco Ureña* (FC Midtjylland)* = Member of Costa Rica’s 23-man World Cup rosterBold = Played in World Cup Facebook Commentslast_img read more

MEC in Ladysmith after shootings

MEC in Ladysmith after shootings

first_imgMEC for Transport, Community Safety & Liaison Mr Willies Mchunu was in Ladysmith yesterday (Monday) to have a briefing with Mayor Vincent Madlala concerning the shootings and horror taxi crash that claimed the lives of 16 people on Saturday.The briefing was held at the Town Hall. From there, a convoy that included officers from RTI, SAPS and Public Safety, as well as representatives from various media groups, made their way to Ladysmith Provincial Hospital to visit the two survivors of the taxi crash. In addition to speaking to the two survivors, one of them in critical condition, MEC Mchunu also gave them flowers.One of the two survivors, 59-year-old Eunice Qwabe, says she recalls the taxi veering off the road. She was thrown clear of the vehicle. While lying in the grass, severely injured, she heard gunshots but was unable to lift her head to see what was going on. Everything else is a blur. She sustained head injuries. She is currently still in hospital and partially paralysed. The convoy then made its way to the scene of the accident and the community hall in Ezakheni C-section. A large crowd of relatives and the one survivor of the second (drive-by) shooting, Sakhile Dlamini, were at the hall. The crowd was addressed by Mayor Madlala and SAPS Brigadier ZO Kunene, who explained the circumstances surrounding the accident and the shootings. She also made an appeal to the public to come forward if they have any information regarding the shootings.Sakhile Dlamini was the only survivor of the shooting in which five of his family members were killed at a car wash in Ezakheni D-section. Sakhile sustained two gunshot wounds to the leg. He says he can’t remember the car from which the shots were fired because it was dark. Fearing for his life, he fled on foot, despite being injured. “I was terrified. Shots were ringing out all around me,” says Sakhile.Provincial Communications KZN released this press report on Monday: Following the 16 deaths this past weekend at Ezakheni during separate incidents, the Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni, has assembled a team from the Provincial Office consisting of Detectives, Hawks and Crime Intelligence to probe these incidents. Members from the National Intervention Unit will return to the area and be deployed to ensure stability. During the past month, the NIU was deployed in the area and made numerous arrests. During their deployment, no incidents were reported and their deployment was terminated last week Thursday.Lieutenant General Ngobeni made an impassioned plea for people to remain calm and allow police to investigate these attacks without interference. “The police have a constitutional mandate to investigate crime and we urge those on the ground to cease speculating. We are mindful that public utterances may have an impact on the investigation or peace and stability in the area. We will be co-opting other departments as the investigation progresses,” she said. “We appeal to members of the community to work with police to solve these cases by providing information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the suspects can contact their local police station or Crime Stop on 08600-10111,” she added.

Iowa is getting one of college footballs greatest coaching staffs back

Iowa is getting one of college footballs greatest coaching staffs back

first_imgThat group boasted five eventual Power 5 head coaches, two College Football Hall of Fame coaches, and two future inductees in Stoops and Ferentz.Fry, who turned 89 in February, was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2003 after racking up 232 career wins at SMU, North Texas and Iowa.He went 143-89-6 as the head Hawkeye from 1979-98 — he was succeeded by Ferentz, who, obviously, coaches the Hawkeyes today — and serves as the namesake for FRYfest, an annual gathering to celebrate the arrival of Hawkeye football.The 10th FRYfest takes place on Aug. 31, and this year’s theme will honor the 1983 staff by getting the gang back together to celebrate its 35th anniversary. (For what it’s worth, Iowa went 9-3 in ’83, finishing third in the Big Ten with a No. 14 ranking in both polls, the program’s highest year-end rank since 1960.)FRYfest (Aug. 31) will reunite almost all of Hayden Fry’s 1983 Iowa coaching staff. Three College Football Hall of Famers (Fry, Bill Snyder, Barry Alvarez) and two future inductees (Bob Stoops, Kikk Ferentz) were on it.— Mike Hlas (@Hlas) May 17, 2018For sure, you could tell they were all pretty special on that staff. And I always felt incredibly lucky and blessed that I was able to hang around them all,” Stoops told ESPN in 2015 of being a 23-year-old GA on that staff. “I think you have to give [Fry] the credit, that he saw in people the leadership and quality of coaches that they were. Because you don’t luck out and get that many people all together at one time.”Aside from marking the 35th anniversary, this year’s FRYfest theme has the absolute perfect timing for another reason: Ferentz tied Fry’s school record of 143 wins with a defeat of Boston College in last season’s Pinstripe Bowl, meaning Fry’s successor will attempt to break his record the day after FRYfest, as Iowa opens its season against Northern Iowa at Kinnick Stadium on Sept. 1. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix When it’s all said and done, we may look back at one of Nick Saban’s Alabama staffs, Urban Meyer’s staffs at Florida or Ohio State, or perhaps one of Mike Leach’s Texas Tech staffs as the greatest collections of coaching talent in college football history.But even the best of those groups has a long way to go to catch Hayden Fry’s 1983 staff.That season, Fry’s fifth as Iowa’s head coach, included the following:– Offensive coordinator Bill Snyder– Linebackers coach Barry Alvarez– Offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz– Defensive line coach Dan McCarney– Graduate assistant Bob Stoopslast_img read more

98 per cent of Cypriot children in good health

98 per cent of Cypriot children in good health

first_imgSome 98 per cent of Cypriot children were deemed to be in good health in 2017, compared with the EU average of 95 per cent, Eurostat said on Tuesday.The figures put Cyprus in eight place in terms of children considered to be in good or very good general health. Greece ranked sixth with 98 per cent.The percentage changes only slightly by age group. Some 96.5 per cent of those under five were given a clean bill of health in the EU. In Cyprus this figure was 97.5 per cent. In the 5-9 age group the figure in Cyprus rose to 98.9 per cent and for those in the age group 10-15, the figure came in at 96.8 per cent.The percentage of children whose general health was considered to be bad or very bad was under 1 per cent for all age groups for the EU average, but exceeded 1.2 per cent for Cyprus in the youngest category – the under-fives.Fewer than 5 per cent of children in the EU and 1.7 per cent in Cyprus were considered to have limitations in activities due to health problems.The percentage of under-fives considered to be in good or very good health was as high as 99 per cent in Bulgaria, which had the highest percentage as did Malta, Romania and Italy, and dropped to below 90 per cent in Latvia (88 per cent), Portugal (88.7 per cent) and Estonia (89.6 per cent).The countries that usually top Eurostat lists for health and wellbeing such as the UK, and the Scandinavian countries all had results slightly over – Sweden, Denmark and Finland – and slightly under the EU average. The UK, which ranked 21st out of 28 countries, clocked in at 94.9 per cent and Norway at 94.7 per cent overall on the percentage of children in good or very good health.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

(By the way, Sergey Shirokobokov, Punjab,贵族宝贝Yigal," These girls are 18 and 19 Theyre not children theyre adults There are two ways to look at this We could say that Wieland is trying to prevent his adult daughters from having access to affordable birth control and we would be correct But Wielands legal claim is slightly different Wieland says that paying for his daughters birth control would violate his religious beliefs In other words he says this is about his beliefs and his conscience not about whether or not his daughters are using birth control But again this isnt how insurance works It wasnt in the Hobby Lobby case and it isnt here Unfortunately Hobby Lobby won its case suggesting that the Supreme Court thinks this is the way insurance works Now Wieland could simply drop his daughters from his plan and maybe we should be grateful for them that hes not going that route Wieland is arguing that his religion requires him to provide birth control for his daughters The problem is that hes using this argument to prove that the law requiring birth control coverage violates his religious beliefs The Wielands have argued in their brief that providing health coverage to their daughters which thanks to the same Affordable Care Act they can do until their children turn 26 is also part of their religious beliefs "The Plaintiffs cannot terminate their daughters health insurance coverage without violating their religious duty to provide for the health and well being of their children" they wrote in one brief I think its awesome that Wieland believes he should continue to pay for his daughters health and well being through providing them with birth control It would be even more awesome if that belief extended to all of womens health care The problem is Wielands view of birth control You would think that a parent in his shoes might want his daughters to abstain from premarital sex but also want them to have access to birth control should they decide to have sex anyway (after all a parent cannot prevent an adult daughter from having sex) But no Christians who oppose sex before marriage tend to feel that access to birth control increases the likelihood that young people will have sex This is probably not all that true for young people who are already taught that sex before marriage is sinful After all if you belief something is sinful and may send you to hell whether or not you are protected against STDs or pregnancy is the less important worry Christians who oppose sex before marriage also tend to believe that having unprotected sex is less sinful than having protected sex This is because using birth control shows that the sex is premeditated You can see this last point illustrated in this short video clip: Wieland is Catholic which adds another dimension The Catholic Church teaches that birth control is unacceptable for even married couples Families may use natural family planning to space their children outprovided they go about it with the right attitude of openness to childrenbut thats it So for Wieland this isnt just about his adult daughters having premarital sex its about them using birth control at all Of course theyll have to leave their fathers insurance when they marry so Wieland wont have any say regarding their use of birth control in marriage I have no idea what Wielands daughters think of all of this They may be completely involved and invested as I would have been at their age I would have seen it as a way to fight back against the big bad government in favor of our religious beliefs But at 21 I would have seen it differently At 21 I would have felt used and I would have wanted out Frankly I probably would have gotten off my parents plan entirely and found a way to make a go of it on my own were I in their shoes After all thats what I did when it came to paying for college I didnt want anything else they could use to control me and my choices When it comes down to it Wieland wants the right to use his daughters insurance coverage to control their sexuality He wants to have a say over whether the insurance he obtains for his family gives his adult daughters access to birth control In a world where patriarchy reigns supreme this request would be reasonable But we dont live in that world We live in a world where adult women are allowed to make their own reproductive choices (or at least that is the world we should live in) Libby Anne was raised in an evangelical family was homeschooled and was taught that a woman’s place is in the home She became a non-believer

voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsWhen Aditi Gupta got her first period aged 12 everyone told her to keep it a secret Even her closest family members in her native India couldn’t know She was forbidden from worshipping at her temple while she was menstruating and instead of sanitary products used rags that caused her to have rashes "When girls [in India] get their periods they are considered impure for those 7 days” Gupta tells TIME “That is how I grew up seeing myself as impure That sense of shame was instilled in me from a very young age" She is not alone In a world where over 5000 euphemisms are used to describe it menstruation is one of the oldest and most far-reaching taboos Especially in India and across South Asia the reluctance to speak about periods is widespread resulting in worryingly low education and awareness – particularly among the demographic of adolescent girls of whom India has some 120 million A recent study for Menstrual Hygiene Day reported that 1 out of 3 schoolgirls across South Asia was not aware of periods before experiencing one for the first time and only 25% of the same group knew that menstrual blood came from the uterus Now a new generation of social entrepreneurs across the region are looking to break the centuries-old taboo and Gupta is one of those leading the way A page from Menstrupedia’s publication Menstrupedia Comic The comic was launched in September 2014 after a successful crowdfunding campaign Menstrupedia The 32-year-old engineering graduate from Jharkhand eastern India refers to Glora Steinem’s essay “If Men Could Menstruate” in which Steinem imagines a world where menstruation would be celebrated but only if it were a male body process “I just thought Oh my god this is the answer to every question Ive ever had" Gupta says "We are taught that vagina is a shameful word and a censored word If the word is censored that body part becomes censored" Gupta only launched Menstrupedia four years ago but the platform has already made a significant contribution to opening up the conversation on menstruation The organization aims to promote awareness and act as a guide to periods for girls and women using a website social media including a YouTube channel and a comic book With over 37000 Likes on Facebook a forum welcoming contributors to openly voice their thoughts and a publication that reaches 30000 girls across India Menstrupedia has had a big impact since its creation and Gupta has bigger plans for its future The comic book is a guide to periods targeted at girls aged nine and above All the characters and storylines are adapted from real life experiences that Gupta collected during the research process to create the book Menstrupedia While studying at the National Institute of Design in Gujarat Gupta met both her now husband and business partner Tuhin Paul In 2013 the pair launched a crowdfunding campaign to produce an illustrated comic book both for girls to read and for teachers and parents to use as an educational resource "We decided that we would show the female anatomy properly in the comic because we just realised how many misperceptions there were after launching our website" says Gupta Menstrupedia Comic is the result: a colorful fun and accessible guide to menstruation following the journey of three young girls and their experiences with periods Each character represents a stage of adolescence girls who haven’t started their period yet and want to learn more about them; girls who have just started their period and want advice on how to prepare for them; and girls who have had periods for some time and might be curious about the myths surrounding them Both the content of the comic and Menstrupedia’s online site have been reviewed by medical professionals to ensure their accuracy Menstrupedia The comic aimed at girls ages 9 and above has since been integrated into the curriculum of 70 schools across India and translated into 11 languages "Myth breaking and period positivity are our strategies and we wanted to make it a comic book because its inclusive" Gupta says referring to the book’s storylines that were adapted from real-life experiences "We wanted to do it in a positive and matter-of-fact way to debunk misconceptions and so that parents and teachers would be comfortable using it Girls can read it and say Oh this happened to me too" Both the online and comic book content has been reviewed by medical professionals to ensure its accuracy an important consideration given that 88% of girls and women in India who menstruate use unsafe materials Judging from an increase in campaigns concentrated on breaking the taboo there have been positive changes in recent years An estimated 1 in 5 girls in India drops out of school because of menstruation and a lack of toilets Prime Minister Narendra Modi was praised for addressing these pressing problems in his introduction to the Clean India campaign in 2014 where he advocated for all schools in the country to have separate toilets for girls Other regional start-ups have sprung into action including online sanitary-products shop Those5Days; design-focused Saral Designs whose engineers have designed a sanitary towel vending machine; and social enterprise Binti Period which creates community projects enabling women to produce sanitary towels sustainably Recent research carried out to coincide with Menstrual Hygiene Day reported only 25% of schoolgirls across South Asia knew that menstrual blood came from the uterus Gupta’s Menstrupedia Comic is intended to be used as an educational guide to raise awareness and dispel the myths that surround menstruation and women’s health Menstrupedia The stigma was also openly addressed last year by Whisper a sanitary towel manufacturer in an award-winning campaign called Touch the Pickle A key social convention in India prevents girls who are menstruating from touching popular preserved foods like pickles because of the belief that the food will spoil Whisper’s advert depicted girls and women actively breaking that taboo "That was part of Menstrupedias contribution to the corporate world" Gupta says "where we encouraged companies to change their strategy of selling menstruation and to do so in a more positive way" Whisper approached Gupta and Paul about buying advertising space in the Menstrupedia Comic and became a partner before the book was even created Gupta now wants to take Menstrupedia beyond India’s shores "This is only the beginning of our work We want to produce the comic for all South Asian countries and we want to do it for African countries too The amount of international orders we get makes us realize the taboo is everywhere" Gupta says "Our plan is to build an educational infrastructure not only for girls but for everybody to talk about periods in a friendly free way I know its going to take decades but eventually I want to raise a generation of girls who are period positive when they become mothers When they raise their own girls period taboos would just vanish from that generation they wouldn’t even know such a taboo existed" Write to Suyin Haynes at suyinhaynes@timecom 18 and 19.

ending is the friend who takes your money and drops you from her parties You feel alone You feel betrayed The potential for anger and bitter Facebook updates is high Kind of like what happened when I was seven and read The Twits On hindsight this must be one of Roald Dahl’s most macabre stories and I loved it Mr and Mrs Twit were vile and horrid and when they weren’t being vile and horrid to each other they were tormenting their caged monkeys or painting their tree with glue to catch birds and bake them There was even a drawing of two pathetic little bird feet sticking out of a Sunday pie When the monkeys and birds teamed up to inflict commensurate punishment upon these villains I cheered along And when on the last page Fred the Postman entered the Twit homestead and discovered their grisly end I was prepared to cheer some more Except then I banged up against this last line: “And everyone including Fred shouted ‘Hoorray’” The thing is somehow I was convinced “including” meant its exact opposite Could I have looked up a dictionary I guess but that’d be an admission of abject defeat wouldn’t it Surely the answer lay right before me on the page For months it worried me this Fred’s inexplicable compassion for the ugly couple Why wouldn’t he shout “Hooray” Was Fred sad because he’d not been able to deliver their letters Had I missed the bit where the Twits and Fred ate bird-pie together Was Fred less a postman and more a symbolic expression of ineffable conscience You cannot imagine my relief when the penny dropped There is something about a book that demands closure For one thing you do literally close the book And you lay it aside and breathe out a little sigh and those little gestures mark your return to the world the real world the one you’ve been jealously keeping at bay with locked doors and scowls and not-now hand waves It’s never the same with movies is it Even when you’re watching them with laptop on knees and headphones movies are somehow independent of your own I-brought-this-alive imagination The film with a big build-up and low payoff is routine — you shrug it off as fun-while-it-lasted Books are different Which is why I like epilogues with their assurance that a book needn’t end on its last page at all Somebody not just me is watching over its future But then I read Crime and Punishment the epilogue to which didn’t just befuddle my vocabulary it devastated my soul Truly I hated it: why o why did Raskolnikov have to get all reformed when he was so much better at being tortured I was so incensed I wrote my own ending Fortunately this addendum is lost to world literature I remember very little of it myself Maybe I had Raskolnikov escape prison and be free Be free Or maybe I had him shot to pieces Whatever it was it just couldn’t be all that tame redemption — that was as wrong as Jo rejecting Laurie Sigh Did that little twist test my strength or what All readers must suffer this moment I suppose the grim realisation that even though you’ve been straining every sinew in the author’s service you only have to turn a page and be knocked off a cliff So then the more you like a book the less you want it to end It may not always wound you but it may awfully well take you from wow to whaaa… in a paragraph Look at The Reluctant Fundamentalist — what a ride that is before it jolts to a halt and you’re not sure if you’re supposed to get off or just cough politely and wait for announcements Or Gone Girl: even the characters can’t be buying that end Maybe they change it when no one’s watching Then of course there’s the book that begins and continues and ends perfectly This is the friend who becomes your lover and you will therefore get many things from it — but not closure You can’t stop talking about it You read it once then immediately want to read it again You thrust it upon your friends and are offended if they don’t like it Not only has the book understood you perfectly it’s spoken your deepest secrets aloud You are forever changed But nothing so perfect can remain As it always knew it must the book returns to its kind upon its shelf And you torn between mourning and hope turn once more to Chapter One Parvati
