Neural networks in weather forecasting
OVER the last year, John Abbot and I have worked on a new method for forecasting rainfall based on the use of artificial intelligence.
We have benchmarked our forecasts against output from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s General Circulation Model (POAMA 1.5). Our model gives a more accurate forecast for 16 of the 17 sites in Queensland that have the highest quality rainfall data. Our methodology is detailed in a new paper that will soon be published in the international journal Advances in Atmospheric Sciences.
Artificial neural networks can find existing complex relationships and patterns repeated in rainfall data. The neural network software that we run on our standard laptop computer, can perform millions of calculations very quickly, and in this way find natural patterns that repeat themselves.
In contrast, the Bureau uses general circulation models; the same models used to predict global warming. These models attempt to forecast seasonal and monthly rainfall by working from a particular theory of climate. Our system is radically different in that we let the model find the patterns. We let the model find the natural cycles and then forecast forward up to 9 months.

1. This loan will provide the necessary capital to purchase software, marketing materials and entrepreneurial educational tool taught by master entrepreneur and CEO of Nouveau Riche University, Jim Piccolo. With the ability to now focus full-time as opposed to free-time I expect to increase my income to a respectable $1,800/month.

No Loss Trading Plan that really works for your.2008-01-18 20:41:56 by bfnnrgn
Are you in the Dallas, TX area? I have a trading plan that is non speculative, non directional, and generates a very high rate of return. It works everyday - all the time - with no losses - (yes) it "really" works. I have been trading the financial markets for 30 years and I understand exactly what I am doing. As a demo, I started trading a friends Forex account of just $6,000.00 on 12/20/07 and I generated a 100% return in just three weeks using leverage with no losses. Luck was not part of the success. A properly funded brokerage account will never have losses. I know it sounds unlikely but I can demonstrate and prove it "is" true. It took me most of my life to develop this technique and it did not come cheap to me. I call it my zero sum no loss trading plan and it will beat any...

$2000 for an online course huh. If it works for you. A few weeks is really good to actually begin to profit in live trading. Staying consistant over the long hual is the trick now. That takes discipline. Avoid the blowout sessions where a trader chases good money after bad trying to recoup losses. Or greedily jumps into a trade with little research.
I home schooled myself over about a year period. I didn't have the money to trade at the time so it really didn't matter. I was content to learn and save till I had it. I had some expenses that was a priority over forex. When I did have the extra cash not swallowed by life I had been profiting for over 6 months on paper and the transition to live was relatively seemless.
I'm getting nice returns now for almost a year live. From...
