    1. Our elders say that ceremonies are the way we “remember to remember,”

      The Western word "ceremony" is certainly not the best word for describing these traditions. It has too much baggage and hidden meaning with religious overtones. It's a close-enough word to convey some meaning to those who don't have the cultural background to understand the underlying orality and memory culture. It is one of those words that gets "lost in translation" because of the dramatic differences in culture and contextual collapse.

      Most Western-based anthropology presumes a Western idea of "religion" and impinges it upon oral cultures. I would maintain that what we would call their "religion" is really an oral-based mnemonic tradition that creates the power of their culture through knowledge. The West mistakes this for superstitious religious practices, but primarily because we can't see (or have never been shown) the larger structures behind what is going on. Our hubris and lack of respect (the evils of the scala naturae) has prevented us from listening and gaining entrance to this knowledge.

      I think that the archaeological ideas of cultish practices or ritual and religion are all more likely better viewed as oral practices of mnemonic tradition. To see this more easily compare the Western idea of the memory palace with the Australian indigenous idea of songline.

    1. I think of the Kindle and what enormous potential that browser had to change our relationship with the internet, to push it towards a web that you read (instead of one that tries so very hard to read you).

      I love the phrase "a web that your read instead of one that tries so very hard to read you."

    1. The other commenters are right about the potential solutions. However, it is actually considered a best practice to move the object with the index signature to a nested property.Said differently: No property in the object with the index signature should depart from how the index signature is typed.

    1. For example, it is worth discussing the process of Wikipedia

      I know that Wikipedia should never be used in a school setting, but I am curious as to why everyone uses it on a daily basis, myself included. If the information has a higher chance of being wrong anyways, why do we all take it as fact? I had learned before that anyone can basically change wikipedia pages, which makes anything that you read potentially very wrong. However, it is still one of the first sites that show up whenever you are looking up something. I wonder how it gained so much popularity from being so wrong. Do you think it has to do with easy to read information and quick access? Because I feel like it reiterates the cycle of using it over and over again. It generally is the top link, and I tend to click on the top link, which helps the algorithm of it going back to the top for other users and for wikipedia to show up for me personally, but how did it gain popularity in the first place?

    2. habits of mind surrounding technologies

      When I first think about digital literacies, I definitely think of it as a proficiency. When you are talking about literacy in a language, you are talking about proficient they are. For example, I am half white and half chinese, I can speak cantonese, but I cannot read or write. I would say that I am illiterate. I don't consider my norms and habits around the culture of being Chinese, for example, I don't consider playing Mojang or celebrating the lunar new year as making me literate with the culture. It is definitely something to think about when you are considering other contexts.

    1. while the super-rich may move through through world cities, their cosmopolitan practices and lifestyles rarely break out of the exclusive transnational spaces which stand at the intersecting points of particular corporate, capital, technological, information and cultural lines of flow.

      The elites move in a world of their own. Embedded within the deteriorating spaces all around them, their privileged and exclusive spaces are like self-constructed lotus blossoms floating on a sea of muck, which their lifestyles have disproportionately helped create in the first place. The geographic juxtapostion of these two spaces is stark, as illustrated in images such as those of Cape Town’s elite neighborhoods nextdoor to crowded townships. Wealth and privilege live side by side poverty.

    1. “We’ve been thoughtful,” Amazon continued, “about adding only features and experiences that preserve and enhance the reading experience.” The question of whose experience doesn’t seem to come up.

      They're definitely not catering to my reading, annotating, and writing experience.

    2. Skimming through pages, the foremost feature of the codex, remains impossible in digital books.

      This is related to an idea that Tom Critchlow was trying to get at a bit the other day. It would definitely be interesting in this sort of setting.

      Has anyone built a generalizable text zoom JavaScript library that let's you progressively summarize an article as you zoom in and out?<br><br>(Why yes I am procrastinating my to-do list. You?)

    3. In other words, as far as technologies go, the book endures for very good reason. Books work.

      Aside from reading words to put ideas into my brain, one of the reasons I like to read digital words is that the bigger value proposition for me is an easier method to add annotations to what I'm reading and then to be able to manipulate those notes after-the-fact. I've transcended books and the manual methods of note taking. Until I come up with a better word for it, digital commonplacing seems to be a useful shorthand for this new pattern of reading.

    1. Update API usage of the view helpers by changing javascript_packs_with_chunks_tag and stylesheet_packs_with_chunks_tag to javascript_pack_tag and stylesheet_pack_tag. Ensure that your layouts and views will only have at most one call to javascript_pack_tag or stylesheet_pack_tag. You can now pass multiple bundles to these view helper methods.

      Good move. Rather than having 2 different methods, and requiring people to "go out of their way" to "opt in" to using chunks by using the longer-named javascript_packs_with_chunks_tag, they changed it to just use chunks by default, out of the box.

      Now they don't need 2 similar but separate methods that do nearly the same, which makes things simpler and easier to understand (no longer have to stop and ask oneself, which one should I use? what's the difference?).

      You can't get it "wrong" now because there's only one option.

      And by switching that method to use the shorter name, it makes it clearer that that is the usual/common/recommended way to go.

    1. The goal is not to read as many books as possible. The goal is to gain as much wisdom as you can.
    2. Using models while reading can also help you get more out of the book. Here are some examples of paths they might lead you down: Confirmation bias: Which parts of this book am I ignoring? Does this book confirm my opinions? (Okay, but does it actually affirm your beliefs or are you just seeing what you want to see? If you cannot think of a single point in the book that you disagreed with, confirmation bias is likely distorting your reasoning.) Bayesian updating: What opinions should I change in light of this book? How can I update my worldview using the information in it? Keep in mind the words of John Maynard Keynes: “When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?” Incentives: What motivates the characters or the author? What are they seeking? What is their purpose? Here’s how Kurt Vonnegut described the importance of incentives in books: “When I used to teach creative writing, I would tell the students to make their characters want something right away—even if it’s only a glass of water. Characters paralyzed by the meaninglessness of modern life still have to drink water from time to time.” Availability bias: Are the books I have recently read affecting how I perceive this one? How are my immediate past experiences shaping my reading? Am I assigning undue importance to parts of this book because they are salient and memorable? Social proof: How is social proof—the number of copies sold, bestseller status, the opinions of others—affecting my perception of this book? Is the author using social proof to manipulate readers? It is not unusual for authors to buy their way onto bestseller lists, providing social proof that then leads to substantial sales. As a result, mediocre books can end up becoming popular. It’s a classic case of the emperor having no clothes, which smart readers know to look out for. Survivorship bias: Is this (nonfiction) book a representation of reality or is the author failing to account for base rates? Survivorship bias is abundant in business, self-help, and biographical books. A particular case of a successful individual or business might be held as the rule, rather than the exception. Utility: If a book offers advice, does it have practical applications? At what point do diminishing returns set in?

      This is a good list of questions to put into a template to ask both while and after reading a book.

      What other regularly recurring questions might go into such a list?

    3. Author and librarian Nancy Pearl advocates the “Rule of 50.” This entails reading the first 50 pages of a book and then deciding if it is worth finishing. The Rule of 50 has an interesting feature: once you are over the age of 50, subtract your age from 100 and read that many pages. Pearl writes: “And if, at the bottom of Page 50, all you are really interested in is who marries whom, or who the murderer is, then turn to the last page and find out. If it’s not on the last page, turn to the penultimate page, or the antepenultimate page, or however far back you have to go to discover what you want to know.…When you are 51 years of age or older, subtract your age from 100, and the resulting number (which, of course, gets smaller every year) is the number of pages you should read before you can guiltlessly give up on a book.…When you turn 100, you are authorized (by the Rule of 50) to judge a book by its cover.”
    4. Most of us were taught as children to treat books as something sacred—no folding the page corners, and no writing in the margins, ever.

      Most Medieval manuscripts specifically left wide columns of space to encourage readers to mark up their texts.

      <small>Detail, London, British Library, Harley MS 3487 (13th century)—[source](http://www.bl.uk/catalogues/illuminatedmanuscripts/ILLUMIN.ASP?Size=mid&IllID=16790)</small>

    5. Book summary services miss the point. A lot of companies charge ridiculous prices for access to vague summaries bearing only the faintest resemblance to anything in the book. Summaries can be a useful jumping-off point to explore your curiosity, but you cannot learn from them the way you can from the original text.*

      Some books only have small bits of wisdom in them to begin with, so summaries can be good.

      However, if one puts the "quality" content in a primary position, then the text itself will often have some incredibly valuable context that may be missing from summaries.

    1. The most common and sensible location for putting down thoughts, critique or notes was the margin of the medieval book. Consider this: you wouldn’t think so looking at a medieval page, but on average only half of it was filled with the actual text. A shocking fifty to sixty percent was designed to be margin. As inefficient as this may seem, the space came in handy for the reader. As the Middle Ages progressed it became more and more common to resort to the margin for note-taking.
    2. Dots and lines are particularly common ingredients of such footnote symbols. Interestingly, their first appearance is not as a connector of comment and text, but as an insertion mark that added an omitted line into the text.

      In a version similar to a footnote, a line and a dot were first used much as we use the carot symbol (^) today for editing to indicate the insertion of a missing line.

    3. Evidently, these two groups of bookmarks—static and dynamic—provided very different approaches to marking information—and thus to a book’s use. Readers who added clip-on or “spider” bookmarks anticipated they would need to retrieve information not from one single page but from a changing number of pages. In other words, movable bookmarks served an audience with a shifting knowledge “appetite,” while the static ones encouraged a more “ritual” use of a book. In other words, both types are telling, in their own way, about medieval reading culture.

      Static bookmarks may have indicated "ritual" or habitual use of books and the information they contained, while dynamic bookmarks may indicate the need for retrieving (temporary) information from one or more pages.

    1. I really hope they keep breaking it. Being the lead on a library for several years, most of the forced refactors were pretty straight forward and in almost every case made our code either more sound or easier to be consumed. Now I work on a runtime that embeds TypeScript and 3.5.1 has broken some code, thought it took me all of about 15 minutes to make the changes to adopt it, and in every case, it broke because we were being a bit loose with the types. While it didn't find any bugs, it made the code more "safe".

      I really hope they keep breaking it.

    1. When defining accessors in Ruby, there can be a tension between brevity (which we all love) and best practice.
    2. a principle I use is: If you have an accessor, use the accessor rather than the raw variable or mechanism it's hiding. The raw variable is the implementation, the accessor is the interface. Should I ignore the interface because I'm internal to the instance? I wouldn't if it was an attr_accessor.
    3. I have been wrapping instance variables in accessor methods whenever I can though.
    4. Setting an instance variable by going through a setter is good practice, and using two access modifiers is the way to accomplish that for a read-only instance variable

    1. Jesuit manuals such as Jeremias Drexel’s Aurifodina, subtitled The Mine of All Arts and Sciences, or the Habit of Excerpting, explained how to best take notes from reading to create commonplace books: personal notebooks of reading extracts that contained the religious, ethical, and political maxims deemed necessary to lead a good life. There were even admonitions about which texts not to read and how not to fold page corners or to mark texts with fingernail scratches.

      Fascinating to see that practices like folding page corners and marking texts are far from new.

    1. Best Practices for Minimalist Website Design

      Minimalism, the art of less, is a popular modern design approach. Experimenting with colors, transitions, navigation, broken composition, or even the complete removal of all elements – there are more ways to implement minimalism than you can imagine. In this article, we explore minimalism as it’s applied in digital product design, going over its main principles and elements and illustrating them with real-life examples of stunning minimalist websites' designs

    1. Your validation functions should also treat undefined and '' as the same. This is not too difficult since both undefined and '' are falsy in javascript. So a "required" validation rule would just be error = value ? undefined : 'Required'.
    1. here is my set of best practices.I review libraries before adding them to my project. This involves skimming the code or reading it in its entirety if short, skimming the list of its dependencies, and making some quality judgements on liveliness, reliability, and maintainability in case I need to fix things myself. Note that length isn't a factor on its own, but may figure into some of these other estimates. I have on occasion pasted short modules directly into my code because I didn't think their recursive dependencies were justified.I then pin the library version and all of its dependencies with npm-shrinkwrap.Periodically, or when I need specific changes, I use npm-check to review updates. Here, I actually do look at all the changes since my pinned version, through a combination of change and commit logs. I make the call on whether the fixes and improvements outweigh the risk of updating; usually the changes are trivial and the answer is yes, so I update, shrinkwrap, skim the diff, done.I prefer not to pull in dependencies at deploy time, since I don't need the headache of github or npm being down when I need to deploy, and production machines may not have external internet access, let alone toolchains for compiling binary modules. Npm-pack followed by npm-install of the tarball is your friend here, and gets you pretty close to 100% reproducible deploys and rollbacks.This list intentionally has lots of judgement calls and few absolute rules. I don't follow all of them for all of my projects, but it is what I would consider a reasonable process for things that matter.
    1. This creates what is essentially an evolution process for the program, causing it to depart from the original engineered design. As a consequence of this and a changing environment, assumptions made by the original designers may be invalidated, introducing bugs.
    1. Personal and professional development will follow andultimately these very same characteristics and approaches will naturally transfer intopractice and in direct contact with young people

      what we learn when becoming youth workers is transferable to our practice, reflective of the necessity of openness and transparency. when we learn the value of these skills, we can demonstrate their value to the young people, and continue the learning journey together

    2. the better a student/youth worker knows himself/herself the more likely he/shewill be able to help others know themselves;

      the quality of training and the development of skills will impact on the growth of the young person

    1. step :direct_debit

      I don't think we would/should really want to make this the "success" (Right) path and :credit_card be the "failure" (Left) track.

      Maybe it's okay to repurpose Left and Right for something other than failure/success ... but only if we can actually change the default semantic of those signals/outputs. Is that possible? Maybe there's a way to override or delete the default outputs?

    2. This connects the failure output to the previous task, which might create an infinity loop and waste your computing time - it is solely here for demonstrational purposes.

    1. For the future, you should: Install LTS (Long-term support) versions as they have an 8-year life span (with Extended Security Maintenance) or 5 years without. The current LTS version is Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS Bionic Beaver released on July 26, 2018 with an EOL in April 2023. OR Carefully watch the EOL of the interim / development releases and upgrade frequently.
    1. Progress is made of compromises, this implies that we have to consider not only disadvantages, but also the advantages. Advantages do very clearly outweigh disadvantages. This doesn’t mean it perfect, or that work shouldn’t continue to minimize and reduce the disadvantages, but just considering disadvantages is not the correct way.
    2. I don’t find the software slow, I find the startup time for snap packages when the start for the first time on a session slow, but that has been improved, and it’s public that the snapcraft team has been working hard to improve that.
    1. There is seldom any good reason to use this option. Mixing ERB into your controllers defeats the MVC orientation of Rails and will make it harder for other developers to follow the logic of your project. Use a separate erb view instead.
    1. When you use target="_blank" with Links, it is recommended to always set rel="noopener" or rel="noreferrer" when linking to third party content. rel="noopener" prevents the new page from being able to access the window.opener property and ensures it runs in a separate process. Without this, the target page can potentially redirect your page to a malicious URL. rel="noreferrer" has the same effect, but also prevents the Referer header from being sent to the new page. ⚠️ Removing the referrer header will affect analytics.

    1. Teaching Tolerance offers some clear practices that can help establish connectedness:

      Are these not "techniques", "exercises", "manoeuvers", from the "front of the room"? I suppose the answer is that technique and leadership are necessary but not sufficient for building community, and that unlike a "best practice" in a controllable process, they may or may not resonate (and thus work) for any given person or group.

    1. Human Resource is a part that has changed step by step. Everything from an individual’s examination, the recruiting procedure to programming frameworks, has developed. Since HR patterns continue transforming, it is fundamental for you to keep awake to-date on the present patterns. Throughout the previous 10 years, the consideration of HR has been on worker fulfillment and representative commitment. Today, there are a few instruments just as must-have assets that help you to fabricate an illuminate HR culture. The following are seven developing HR trends. Audit Culture & Ceaseless Input One of the most anticipated HR patterns is the way of life of audits and ceaseless input in the working environment. The techniques that individuals use to give criticism have changed throughout the years. As an HR chief or an administrator, you should concentrate on improving your specializations by giving continuous and productive input. As indicated by a few examinations, most workers would incline toward constant audits or input rather than the yearly execution surveys. This is on the grounds that the training encourages them to know where they may be turning out badly, and offer them an opportunity to address themselves before the yearly assessment. They don’t need to trust that a year will realize where they turned out badly. Ceaseless criticism will likewise enable the association to develop and stay away from huge losses. Review Culture & Continuous Feedback We have come to discover that activity fulfillment and execution go together. Both appear to create whenever representatives have a chance to investigate their inventiveness. Most driving endeavors apply this information to offer the development of their workers. By creating frameworks that gauge and furthermore oversee execution, you can have the option to accelerate development and notice the noteworthy change. It is indispensable to elevate the solid execution of the executive hiring to both individual-level and hierarchical level on the off chance that you need your organization to succeed. Digitized Prizes & Acknowledgment Probably the best spark for most workers has been getting applause and acknowledgment from their chiefs. Each individual anticipates that the pattern should progress. We as a whole plan to see digitized prizes and acknowledgment. Consequently, to make your representatives beneficial, advanced acknowledgment is a pattern you have to execute. Another HR pattern expected is shared acknowledgment. Start by utilizing the social stages and offer a reasonable stage for your representatives to perceive and remunerate their commitment. HR Bots (AI Driven HR) Another intriguing HR pattern to the center is AI-driven HR. Despite the fact that it isn’t required to dispense with the standard human HR, it will change and help to investigate the information. It will likewise aid the essential redundant HR assignments. At the point when you utilize Artificial knowledge in selecting the workforce, you will have the option to kill inclination. It will assist with getting to the competitors dependent on their requirements without partiality. Learning the Executives Frameworks The requirement for aptitudes advancement is significant for every one of your representatives regardless of which phase of the profession they are right now. Steady learning is required to be among the most well known and developing HR inclines. It is basic for any association that needs to develop to give learning chances to all representatives. Through learning, your representatives can have the option to improve their abilities and have the option to give the best while working. Your association can have to learn the board frameworks that will assist you with checking and track your workers learning process precisely, and furthermore help to advance cooperation between different offices in your organization. Increment in Low Maintenance Business & Unexpected Workforce The Board In most progressive nations, there is a standard pattern where in excess of 40 percent of representatives are being employed on an unforeseen premise. This implies you have to become familiar with your workforce structure and whether you can reevaluate organizing it. You have to learn and comprehend the sort of frameworks and advances that can be actualized in your association. Despite the fact that it isn’t down to earth for any association to receive another workforce structure in a flash, it is fundamental to know about the rising HR patterns. Remember that your workforce is the most basic resource in your association. Utilization of Online Expertise Evaluations Online evaluations have likewise gotten progressively famous as a successful ability to the executive’s device. Representative evaluation is not, at this point pretty much agreeing to an association’s rules. It is presently an indispensable piece of the executive system. In the present profoundly serious worldwide economy, an association must have a grasp of what precisely the workforce knows, or doesn’t have the foggiest idea. Online appraisals including tests, overviews, tests, and tests have been utilized to alleviate the dangers of depending on negligible self-evaluation. Wellness & Health Applications to Create Representative Commitment Another essential HR functions pattern that most associations are required to concentrate on is wellness and wellbeing applications. Most organizations nowadays are concentrating on making life and work balance. In the event that you need your representatives to be beneficial, and to have the option to assemble a practical workforce, you have to adjust work and life. To accomplish this target, you can present health and wellness application for your workers. The applications will assist with making harmony between their expertise and their own lives. For instance, your representatives can approach dietary directing, yoga, and work and life advising among numerous others. From People Analytics to Analytics For The Individuals An absence of trust can impact numerous workforce investigation endeavors. On the off chance that the emphasis is fundamentally on productivity and control, workers will question if there are any advantages for them. In general there is a move to more worker driven associations, albeit now and again you can question how real the endeavors are to improve the representative experience. Posing the inquiry: “By what method will the representatives profit by this exertion?” is a decent beginning stage for a great many people examination ventures. It additionally assists with making purchase in, which turns out to be progressively significant. Simply estimating the “disposition” of workers, and other key individuals markers (efficiency, residency) doesn’t really carry advantages to representatives. It may really reverse discharge: workers feel that they are controlled, and their voice isn’t heard. Learning In the Progression of Work It has any kind of effect if a representative must look effectively for a learning module that the individual needs, or if that the small scale learning module is offered at a suitable second in the work process, in light of on-going perceptions of the conduct the worker. In the event that there is a gathering with organization X in your journal, your own learning help may ask: “Would you like to study organization X?”. In the event that you are stuck in structuring a troublesome Excel large scale, the Excel chatbot asks you: “Would I be able to assist you with designing the full scale?”. On the off chance that you have a gathering planned with a representative with a low presentation rating (the PC gets this data in the HRIS), you are offered a short module “how to manage to fail to meet expectations workers”. During your online deals call, you get recommendations in your screen on the most proficient method to improve the discussion (“Ask a few inquiries”, “Attempt to close”), and thereafter your discussion is contrasted and top tier models, bringing about some learning focuses. Comprehensive authority The desires workers and different partners have of authority, are frequently excessively high. Frequently you hear: “Change needs to begin at the top”, and “Pioneers need to show others how its done”. These kinds of articulations can be deadening. On the off chance that workers are sitting tight for directions from the top and get debilitated if their pioneers are not immaculate people, associations will be in an awful shape. Changing initiative into progressively comprehensive administration can be gainful to associations. Comprehensive initiative has been centredaround the attributes of the comprehensive head. It is additionally about the attributes of the association and the way to deal with initiative turn of events. I despite everything see numerous administration improvement educational plans that are develop customarily: a restrictive program for the best, a program for centre administrators and the leader program for high possibilities. Set-ups like this don’t strengthen comprehensive authority. Time for HR to start new methodologies. Efficiency In the most recent years, there has not been a great deal of spotlight on efficiency. We see a moderate change at the skyline. Generally, limit issues have been fathomed by enlisting new individuals. This has prompted a few issues. I have seen this multiple times in quickly developing scale-ups. As the development is constrained by the capacity the find new individuals, the choice rules are (regularly unknowingly) brought down, the same number of individuals are required quick. These new individuals are not as gainful as the current group. Since you have more individuals, you need more directors. Lower quality individuals and more administrators brings down profitability. Another methodology is, to concentrate more on expanding the profitability of the current representatives, rather than recruiting extra staff, and on improving the choice measures. Utilizing individuals examination, you can attempt to discover the qualities of top performing individuals and groups, and the conditions that encourage top execution. These discoveries can be utilized to build efficiency and to choose competitors that have the attributes of top entertainers. At the point when profitability expands, you need less individuals to convey similar outcomes. Corporate & Representative Activism Numerous associations are still deep down centered. The key inquiry is more “How might we take care of our issues?” than “how might we take care of issues in our general public?”. Taking responsibility for corporate social duty can be more than offering representatives the chance to do great on one day out of every year. Research by Povaddo indicated that the greater part of those working in America’s biggest organizations feel that corporate America needs to assume a progressively dynamic job in tending to significant cultural issues. There are sufficient issues to handle. Representatives are eager to contribute. HR can assume a significant job in encouraging and invigorating corporate/representative activism. Main concern While no individual can determine what HR patterns 2018 will offer, specialists and various examinations focuses towards representative fulfillment and advanced devices. In any case, one thing to be certain is that innovation will affect the HR office, and how they work. To remain on top of things, you should begin setting up your association at the earliest opportunity. Be that as it may, however the above HR patterns guarantee astounding occasions ahead, you ought to be mindful.You ought to think about computerized instruments as a help for your association procedures, and not for them to drive your association completely. It is urgent to be open and adaptable before grasping new innovations to help your HR office. Likewise, don’t dismiss the master plan in view of the accessibility of apparatuses and rising patterns. You have to learn, comprehend, break down and counsel generally before responding to any of the rising patterns. For instance, AI is a phenomenal device that is the eventual fate of HR and different offices. Notwithstanding, you have to become familiar with the advantages and the issues that can’t be unravelled by the Bots. Today, the HR office is not, at this point a help work. Henceforth, it is important to have appropriate framework this basic office

    1. On April 24, the U.S. National Security Agency published an advisory document on the security of popular messaging and video conferencing platforms. The NSA document “provides a snapshot of best practices,” it says, “coordinated with the Department of Homeland Security.” The NSA goes on to say that it “provides simple, actionable, considerations for individual government users—allowing its workforce to operate remotely using personal devices when deemed to be in the best interests of the health and welfare of its workforce and the nation.” Again somewhat awkwardly, the NSA awarded top marks to WhatsApp, Wickr and Signal, the three platforms that are the strongest advocates of end-to-end message encryption. Just to emphasize the point, the first criteria against which NSA marked the various platforms was, you guessed it, end-to-end encryption.

Stop forcing users to change their passwords every 30, 60, or 90 days, and stop forcing users to include a mixture of uppercase, lowercase, and special charactersForcing users to change their passwords should only happen if there is reason to believe an organization has been breached, or if a new third-party data breach affects employees or users.
    3. These massive dumps of free passwords lower the cost of an attack dramatically. Password reuse or password guessing attacks are script kiddie stuff. Defending your organization against such threats is basic due diligence.
    1. it reminds me of IT security best practices. Based on experience and the lessons we have learned in the history of IT security, we have come up with some basic rules that, when followed, go a long way to preventing serious problems later.
    2. The fact is that it doesn’t matter if you can see the threat or not, and it doesn’t matter if the flaw ever leads to a vulnerability. You just always follow the core rules and everything else seems to fall into place.
    1. One suggestion is to check user's passwords when they log in and you have the plain text password to hand. That way you can also take them through a reset password flow as they log in if their password has been pwned.
    1. In 2017 NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) as part of their digital identity guidelines recommended that user passwords are checked against existing public breaches of data. The idea is that if a password has appeared in a data breach before then it is deemed compromised and should not be used. Of course, the recommendations include the use of two factor authentication to protect user accounts too.
    1. When processing requests to establish and change memorized secrets, verifiers SHALL compare the prospective secrets against a list that contains values known to be commonly-used, expected, or compromised.
    1. Once common practice, websites emailing you your password is now severely frowned upon. You'd often see this happen if you'd forgotten your password: you go to the "forgot password page", plug in your email address and get it delivered to your inbox. In fact, this is such a bad practice that there's even a website dedicated to shaming others that do this.

    1. Do Browse like a user wouldTake natural pauses that users would take to consume page contentFocus on the most common use cases, rather than all the possible use casesTake note of pages where forms/logins occur, you will likely need to complete some scripting there
    1. “the process of acquiring syntactic and lexical competence” in a language does not happen in a semester or in a year

      taking the time to read over what past consultants have worked on with this writer can be important to reinforcing the skills taught. comprehensive reporting is important as well. It's not enough to say that you worked on X with a writer; expand on where you think their progress is at. have they become proficient in this skill or is further support/reinforcement needed?

    1. Yes, absolutely, no two projects are alike. This step is moving towards a direction where we have a set of best practices for webpack isolated in a bundled package and can be maintained in isolation without impacting upgrades or end-user experience. If you have seen next.js or create-react-app they sort of do they same thing for ease and maintainability. Rails is a great example for this - there are some built-in best practices, opinionated defaults and gems that are hidden behind the scene plus power to do advance things where needed.
    1. make the teaching and learning problems caused by copyright the core issue we are solving with OER

      I still wonder to what degree open educational practices are necessarily or always tied to copyright. That is, can OEP be implemented on copyrighted texts?

    1. Supporting Personalised Learning Frequently mentioned throughout the interviews was the goal of allowing learners to explore their personal interests, culture and social context through assessment. Several participants sought to design assessment that allowed learners to tap into these aspects of their personal lives. Where learners could exercise choice and pursue projects of personal interest, a greater sense of ownership was observed. James commented that “they love the idea that they are in control of what they do”, when given more choice around assessment. Other participants suggested it was possible to have learners working on projects that could benefit their personal lives or professional trajectories as part of formal coursework. In her final assignment, Olivia provides the learners “absolute free reign in terms of what kind of a thing they produced.” Learners use their creative interests to develop resources for the course, as Olivia reflects “some opted for essays still, but other students created digital timelines, infographics, podcasts, comic books, videos.” Personalisation of assessment was suggested to allow learners to represent and situate themselves authentically and creatively through their work.

      Giving learners more autonomy in their learning is a great pedagogical principle, and in the context of the article focusing on learning design, I can see how this fits with "open" as it does require that the course design needs to be more "open" as in flexible to allow for this kind of learner autonomy. There is overlap here between authentic learning and open pedagogy.

    1. Two commonly used change strategies are clearly not effective: developing and testing “best practice” curricular materials and then making these materials available to other faculty and “top‐down” policy‐making meant to influence instructional practices.

      Would this be predicted by the Cynefin framework? Teaching problems are rarely obvious enough for "best" practices; "better" practices may be the best we can hope for.

    1. teachthought This particular page is entitled '20 simple assessment strategies you can use every day' but the reason it is listed here is because the page itself serves as a jumping off point for reviewing or learning about many educational theories and principles. This site may have been designed for K-12 teachers - I am not sure, but it is quite usable for those who teach adults. This is a place to come if you are interested in browsing - not if you have a specific thing you need at the moment. Rating 3/5

    1. onstrains and enables

      Is discourse seen as enforcing "hard" or "soft" boundaries? A hard boundary might be something outside of which all sense is lost, like "stars function mustard." A soft boundary might be something forbidden by custom, decorum, etc., like complaining about your spouse to a person who very recently lost their spouse in an accident.

    2. summary,

      super helpful summary. Commenting just to tag it.

    1. Inevitably, what I find reaffirms aspects of writing pedagogy I’m familiar with while giving me fresh ways to express it to the new audiences with whom I’m working.

      Teaching writing in STEM disciplines is beneficial for the students and the teacher.

    1. The paradox of resistance: critique, neoliberalism, and the limits of performativity

      I found this post from Sherri Spelic's post, "A Convention In My Mind.

    2. Relatedly, given the level of agreement among academics about the general direction of these changes, engagement with developing long-term, sustainable alternatives to exploitative modes of knowledge production has been surprisingly scattered.

      Alternative practices to exploitative knowledge production have not kept up with critiques.
