    1. https://www.aei.org/articles/what-malcolm-gladwell-gets-wrong-about-poverty/

      What creates "strong families"? It's definitely more than a two-parent household. Economic and social support are highly helpful as well as a myriad of other factors.

      Watch the potential for subtle right leaning bias here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Enterprise_Institute#Political_stance_and_impact

    2. But until all participants in the debate recognize the overwhelming importance of having two parents in the home, we’re not going to get very far in improving opportunity.

      If two-parent families are so important, where is the support for all two-parent families? Where is economic support for these going to magically appear? Is he pushing that agenda?

      The arrest and incarceration rates for African-American men is primarily a tax on Black families which tends to split them up and destabilize them appalling rates. Why not mention this as something that could be helped in his argument here?

      He seems to be doing a lot of cherry picking.

    3. This point may not appeal as much to liberal sensibilities, but any serious conversation of this study, or upward mobility generally, has to begin with the state of the two-parent family in America.

      This seems to fall back on the trope of "two-parent families are the natural state" when in reality, since the late 80's one's chances are better with a two-parent, two-income family which provides far greater stability. His argument here is conflating multiple complex items, an issue he takes with Gladwell himself.

      Why not peel apart this two-parent claim the same way? I suspect he may be nodding to the single-earner two-parent mode, but how prevalent is this in American culture now? What other pieces also underpin this? And is it different by state, by race, by culture, etc.

    1. We want to use the Doorkeeper gem to implement an OAuth provider in our app. However, we use 2 factor auth in the login process, so we need a way to modify the password grant to accept email, password and a 2fa token (and respond with an appropriate error if the 2fa token is required and missing).
    1. Replace 'log' with 'clock'; do you think it should be "clockin" because you aren't "clocking" anything? Plus, if 'login' was a verb, you'd not be logging in, but logining. Eww. Or, you'd have just logined instead of logged in.
    2. I feel very happy about them indeed because they take me to the destinations they promise (they're all nouns). Login doesn't take me to my login, which makes me sad. It does take me to a place where I can log in, however.
    1. "you can verb any noun". :) Though, comparing "ssh into a workstation" to "login to host.com", where "log in" exists, it's a bit like saying "entrance the building" when "enter the building" already works
    2. Login is a noun, the same as breakup (suffer a breakup), backup (keep backups safe), spinoff (a Star Wars spinoff), makeup, letdown,

    1. I have always liked the weaving loom as a metaphor for weaving the absolute and relative together into one cloth. The absolute can be the warp, the relative can be the woof, and the shuttle or the jade works , can spin them all together into one cloth. It’s not that we have to make them into one cloth, they are always manifesting together in simultaneous realization . The jade works is the activity of life itself, the total dynamic functioning of the activity of the universe. Sometimes translated as: The Whole Works. Always right here. All-at-oneness.

      Weaving loom analogy! In life, weave the absolute and the relative into one clothes. The absolute is the warp The relative is the woof the Jade Works is the shuttle spinning appearances into one beautiful tapestry. one beautiful simultaneous realization The Whole Works!

      OR

      The absolute and relative are two sides of the same coin

    1. If you ignore that inner voice of intuition, over time it will slowlyquiet down and fade away. If you practice listening to what it is tellingyou, the inner voice will grow stronger. You’ll start to hear it in allkinds of situations. It will guide you in what choices to make andwhich opportunities to pursue. It will warn you away from people andsituations that aren’t right for you. It will speak up and take a standfor your convictions even when you’re afraid.I can’t think of anything more important for your creative life—andyour life in general—than learning to listen to the voice of intuitioninside. It is the source of your imagination, your confidence, and yourspontaneity

      While we have evolved a psychological apparatus that often gives us good "gut feelings" (an actual physical "second brain"), we should listen careful to them, but we should also learn to think about, analyze, and verify these feelings so we don't fall prey to potential cognitive biases.

    1. This came in the context of weighing what she stood to gain and lose in leaving a staff job at BuzzFeed. She knew the worth of what editors, fact-checkers, designers, and other colleagues brought to a piece of writing. At the same time, she was tired of working around the “imperatives of social media sharing.” Clarity and concision are not metrics imposed by the Facebook algorithm, of course — but perhaps such concerns lose some of their urgency when readers have already pledged their support.

      Continuing with the idea above about the shift of Sunday morning talk shows and the influence of Hard Copy, is social media exerting a negative influence on mainstream content and conversation as a result of their algorithmic gut reaction pressure? How can we fight this effect?

    1. "I'd want to learn a lot from Professor Zimmerman so that I may obtain as much information as possible and use it in reality. It's not about the work."

    2. "To summarize, I am prepared to conquer all hurdles in my path to achieving the career of my dreams so that I may contribute to my society. I am a firm believer in the concept of dreams coming true."

    1. Two tracks

      You can't really schedule shaping work because, by it's very nature, unshaped work is risky and unknown. For that reason we have two separate tracks: one for shaping, one for building. During any six week cycle, the teams are building work that's been previously shaped and the shapers are working on what the teams might potentially build in a future cycle. Work on the shaping track is kept private and not shared with the wider team until the commitment has been made to bet on it.

      That gives the shapers the option to put work in progress on the shelf or drop it when it's not working out.

There are therefore two great problems which the Party is concerned to solve. One is how to discover, against his will, what another human being is thinking, and the other is how to kill several hundred million people in a few seconds without giving warning beforehand.

    1. Moreover, there are strikingly contrasting presuppositions within the social sciences toward culture: Too often, culture is treated as a residual once the “hard” economic, political, and sociological factors are considered. Alternatively, it can become the all-encompassing construct that supposedly explains everything. Similarly, culture is seen as something that either prohibits or accelerates progress, or it becomes a politically innocent reference category to paint over increasingly absent shared values and common narratives

      Culture as a site of contestation!

    1. Defamation law walks a fine line between the right to freedom of speech and the right of a person to avoid defamation. On one hand, a reasonable person should have free speech to talk about their experiences in a truthful manner without fear of a lawsuit if they say something mean, but true, about someone else. On the other hand, people have a right to not have false statements made that will damage their reputation.
    1. source | edit | rollback | link

      I can see (here) another reason people might incorrectly spell the verb roll back as "rollback": because they are including it in a list of other single-word words separated only by spaces. If one were to include the space in "roll back" as it should have, then it would "break" this meaningful-whitespace design/layout.

    1. set up

      This is the past participle of the verb "to set up".

      Also: do a web search for "be set up" vs "be setup".

    2. The verb set up, on the other hand, is usually found as an open compound (two words, no hyphen) in both American and British English.

    1. the spelling "Web site" (and the less questionable "web site") is an anachronism from the 1990s that is still in use by the NYT and some other conservative print media in the US while most others (including the online sections of the NYT!) today use "website".
    2. English tends to build new compound nouns by simply writing them as separate words with a blank. Once the compound is established (and the original parts somewhat "forgotten"), it's often written as one word or hyphenated. (Examples: shoelaces, aircraft...)
    3. Web site / website seems to be somewhat in a transitional stage, being seen as an "entity" that web page hasn't reached yet. Depending on which dictionary you check you will find web site and website, but only web page, not webpage.

      This only emphasizes the fact that literally everybody was looking at him

    2. Now that he had no work to hold, he laid the knuckles of the right hand in the hollow of the left, and then the knuckles of the left hand in the hollow of the right, and then passed a hand across his bearded chin, and so on in regular changes, without a moment's intermission. The task of recalling him from the vagrancy into which he always sank when he had spoken, was like recalling some very weak person from a swoon, or endeavouring, in the hope of some disclosure, to stay the spirit of a fast-dying man. “Did you ask me for my name?” “Assuredly I did.” “One Hundred and Five, North Tower.” “Is that all?” “One Hundred and Five, North Tower.”

    1. While the focus this week is encouraging people to talk about their mental health issues, it's also important to listen. So this week, O2 board members will be going on a "listening tour" as part of Mental Health Awareness Week, to remind people across the organisation of the support on offer. This includes a stress toolkit, an online mental health hub and an online portal and telephone service that employees can turn to for advice on counselling as well as life management and health and financial issues. Online referrals can also be made through to an occupational health agency

      This is what the company is trying to do spread the success of their process of tackling. mental health. By reaching out to other companies, they are attempting to connect with others and show them that their process works and that everyone should do as them.

    2. More details at mentalhealth.org.uk

      extra resources

    3. Providing the right tools to support people to have open conversations plays an important part in achieving this

      Implies that you might have the right people in the building but the only way to successfully move forward thorough these issues is to have a place with people who can be there for these people who have issues and can provide them with resources like medication, stress relief and even sessions to talk about what can be changed to be proactive.

    4. Ann Pickering, O2 HR director

      Thought the use of multiple quotes from different sources, the author is able to show that they have greatly researched the topic and that they have multiple thing/people to back up their points.

    5. They do not diagnose,

      although these people do help the workers during their time of need, in the long run, the office should have a person/group of people set aside that can officially diagnose and help them get better or at least show them a person that they know will be able to assist them in reducing the problems flareups.

    6. "Our clinicians and occupational health service tell us that the earlier someone is referred to them, the more likely they will make a full recovery and return to work.

      When a person is trying to get better, the first step is knowing that they have something that can be improved. Used logos.

    7. This culture

      in this case, these resources were utilized

    8. A key part of the success of any organisation is inclusiveness -- creating a culture where people are accepted for their differences. Ability EY is our umbrella organisation for dyslexia, stammering and mental health, and is important because it shows our employees that we not only value them but look after them, too. This culture encourages people to talk more openly."

      At EY they have learned (probably through trial and error) that you can't just tell people to get better or tell them what to do for their conditions, you actually have to get everyone involved because doing so will allow people to grow and succeed because the have others that are there specifically employed for that purpose.

    9. EY has a whole raft of support for those suffering from mental health issues -- not just a staff network, but also mentors, a counselling service and even a poster campaign to help break down the barriers.

      This is a really good example of what companies should begin to incorporate into their offices and faculty. Bennett was able or improve his condition and maintain working at the facility because of this amazing support staff.

    10. With mental health issues costing companies PS2.4 billion a year, those who fail to support staff are paying a high price.

      A loss for an employee and eventually a loss for a company buy not getting help or simply checked out.

    11. Everyone wanted me to get better, they left me alone and I did

      The opposite of what should have happened. This connect with article one in the fact that they both talk about employers or coworkers not knowing about or how to help with a mental problem. These people facing an issue should be able to talk with someone who specializes in their kind of issue and who can be able to form a single type of relationship with them (doctor to patient opposed to doctor, friend, coworker to patient).

    12. until a colleague stepped in to help. But this time, the outcome was very, very different.

      One source of helpful organizations are just the HR team in offices. Although they do try and help these people, sometimes they are too busy to help the employees with specific illnesses. Therefore by creating a broader selection of organizations with close resources, the people who do need help can get it quicker and probably more intense than what Human Resources or coworkers would be able to do.

    1. two students only, this provision being deemed advantageous to morals, to order, & to uninterrupted study;

      I find it interesting that two is the explicitly stated maximum for students living together in order to be neat, get along well, and have an ideal situation for studying. I believe this still holds true in today's time, though many find themselves going to the library to study instead. This statement causes me to wonder whether it was rare for students to go elsewhere, such as a library, to study at this time. It seems likely that since a University such as this had not existed previously, the founders wanted to give the prospective students the best possible chance to succeed and did not want to force the students to go to a library or some other building to do their studying. Also, the founders were likely trying to get the students accustomed to studying in their living quarters with another person present, to prepare them for their future jobs when they would have wives and maybe children in the same house or room as them while working.

    1. How can we draw many different bootstrap samples from the original sample if each bootstrap sample must contain the same number of cases as the original sample? If we allow every case in the original sample to be sampled only once, each bootstrap sample contains all cases of the original sample, so it is an exact copy of the original sample. Thus, we cannot create different bootstrap samples.

      So, bootstrapping without replacement doesn't allow for ANY bootstrapping regardless of sample size?

    1. Conceptually, components are like JavaScript functions. They accept arbitrary inputs (called "props") and return React elements describing what should appear on the screen.

      Components are JS doing rendering.

      For a given component: I = props (arbitrary inputs) O = elements (describe view)

      So a view on a screen is associated with components or haecceities, What's Happening, rather than with a background-environment Document, or Object, or Model, or quid-whatness-or-THING (person subj or substance) abut which they occur. D&G would have a field day over React. See also "Thinking in React."
