Do I get the nutrients I need from a Vegan/Vegetarian Diet?

Only if its a properly planned diet! Check out the end of this text for 3 very useful links!

Some diet planning is necessary to be sure about nutritive vegan diets... "Complete" proteins and specific vitamins are some of the main challenges to face. Vitamin supplements are not rare for vegans either, after all they can't harm you.

Do I get the nutrients I need from a Vegan/Vegetarian Diet?

Yep. But how about the people who are lactose intolerant (many Latin-Americans like myself - I recommend almond milk BTW) or have conditions such as gastritis or colitis, or even food allergies? Well true vegans don't include any animal byproduct in their diet anyhow and they can get the nutrients. But as for people who can't really eat grains (they produce gas), tofu, soy or gluten for other problems, maybe a more flexetarian diet bay be in order.

In general people don't need animal products to have a full nutrition, although some of these products and sometimes meat do make things easier. However animal consumerism is completely out of control! We certainly don't need THAT MUCH meat/eggs/milk/cheese/butter/etc... They're just part of our food cultures by now. But that will change gradually.

I recommend looking into Indian and vegetarian Chinese food for beginners in America/Europe mostly. The Mediterranean diet is also very rich in oil and grains, among other veggie goodies and a few tweaks can turn it into a great vegan style.

Some great resources can be found in these 3 links (which represent the major Google-searches about the topic):
I wish I knew more about the subject. I hope this helps :)

sqlalchemy ProgrammingError can't adapt type numpy.float64 - Python troubleshooting

Are you getting a

sqlalchemy.exc.ProgrammingError: (ProgrammingError) can't adapt type 'numpy.float64'

It's because psycopg (psycopg2) - which is used inherently by SQL Alchemy but if you're just dealing directly with alchemy you might not know this - has no idea how to make the numpy.core.numerictypes.float64 (complete type path: another thing they don't tell you) a string for SQL querying.

Simple solution, add:

# solution by Jorge Orpinel found at rehalcon.blogspotcom
import numpy
from psycopg2.extensions import register_adapter, AsIs
def addapt_numpy_float64(numpy_float64):
return AsIs(numpy_float64)
register_adapter(numpy.float64, addapt_numpy_float64)
somewhere in the program.

I don't git it.

A lot of people praise git. I liked it at first, now I don't geet it.

Some weird stuff I've found in git, in no particular order:

You can pretend to be anyone. Just change your [user] name and email in .git/config and commit away. As long as when you push you use valid credentials, the commits will be recorded as from someone else. (At least this is possible on GitHub, I know git doesn't implement any specific user access control.)
* I guess you could try to enforce signing commits but as anything besides the basics, that gets pretty complicated on git.Steep learning curve that keeps getting steeper. Ok: git init, git add, git rm -r, git commit -am, git remote add, git fetch, git merge -ff, git push and pull -u of course, git checkout -b, git reset --mixed, git revert HEAD ... Those are just some of the basics... Ever tried to incorporate git subtree pull -P prefix --squash > into your workflow? I have, it's not fun (keep reading).Its super complicated to collaborate…

Dockerize your Django App (for local development on macOS)

I'm writing this guide on how to containerize an existing (simple) Python Django App into Docker for local development since this is how I learned to to develop with Docker, seeing that the existing django images and guides seem to focus on new projects.

For more complete (production-level) stack guides you can refer to Real Python's Django Development with Docker Compose and Machine or transposedmessenger's Deploying Cookiecutter-Django with Docker-Compose.

Pre-requisitesAn existing Django app which you can run locally (directly or in Virtualenv). We will run the local dev server with runserver.A requirements.txt file with the app dependencies, as is standard for Python projects; including MySQL-python.Working local MySQL server and existing database. (This guide could easily be adapted for other SQL engines such as Postgres.)Install Docker. You can see Docker as a virtual machine running Linux on top of your OS ("the host"), which in turn can run con…
