Daring Fireball: 10 Strikes and You’re Out — the iOS Feature You’re Probably Not Using But Should
I’ve long been intrigued by this setting, but never turned it on, out of the vague fear that something could happen and I’d wind up with a wiped iPhone. Say, if a “friend” surreptitiously took my phone at a bar and entered 10 wrong passcodes as a prank. I had no idea until I looked into it last weekend, but it turns out this feature is far more clever than I realized, and it’s highly unlikely that your kids or jackass drinking buddies could ever trigger it. It seems pretty clear from the responses to my poll that I wasn’t alone in thinking that this feature was more dangerous than it really is. I’ve got it turned on now, and I can’t think of a good reason why anyone wouldn’t enable this.

CNN's Anthony Bourdain dead at 61 - CNN
His close friend Eric Ripert, the French chef, found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a survey Thursday showing suicide rates increased by 25% across the country over nearly two decades ending in 2016. Chef and writer Edward Lee, who hosted a season of a show produced by Bourdain, looked back at their time working together and wrote that "Tony gave us a world that we didn't know we needed." Bourdain grew up in Leonia, New Jersey, and started working in kitchens in his teens -- including on Massachusetts' Cape Cod during the summer. First, he hosted "A Cook's Tour" on the Food Network, then moved to the Travel Channel with "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations," a breakout hit that earned two Emmy Awards and more than a dozen nominations.

Canada now has better data on skills and labour market outcomes than ever. Why is it so hard to use it? | The Mowat Centre
This is the reality faced by researchers and government officials looking to understand whether our secondary and postsecondary education system is providing students with the skills they need to succeed in the economy of tomorrow. And it requires samples large enough that the effects of other variables potentially affecting labour market outcomes – for example, whether one got married and has kids, or encountered health problems – can be statistically accounted for. Skills also enable citizens to interact effectively together and with their public institutions to address an increasingly complex array of local, regional, national and global challenges. Accessing the linked PIAAC and LISA data is the key to better understanding how education, skills and labour market outcomes interact in Canada, and how to maximize their societal impact going forward. Its purpose is to access, analyze and mobilize data relating to the education, skills and labour market outcomes of Canadians, and to disseminate the findings to inform policy development.

Research Initiative on Education + Skills | The Mowat Centre
Its purpose is to access, analyze and mobilize data relating to the education, skills and labour market outcomes of Canadians, and to disseminate the findings to inform policy development. Use the data to produce a series of studies by both internal and external researchers on key policy issues relating to the education, skills and labour market outcomes of Canadians. An international programme of assessment of adult skills and competencies initiated by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and administered between 2011 and 2016 in 34 countries. A longitudinal survey conducted every two years since 2012 that collects information from 24,000 adult Canadians, including 8,500 PIAAC respondents, about their jobs, education, health and family, and how changes in these areas affect different aspects of their lives. Results from LISA can be linked to the direct measures of skills conducted through PIAAC for those respondents who are included in both surveys.

The Constitutional Crisis Is Already Underway
For most of Donald Trump’s presidency, the specter of a coming constitutional crisis has loomed over the Russia investigation. The newly leaked memo by Trump’s lawyers, obtained by the New York Times, suggests that such a crisis is not merely a likelihood, but that it has already begun.

The memo proposes several tendentious interpretations of the publicly available facts of Trump’s behavior, along with some legally questionable and amateurish citations of precedent. But the most important passage is its sweeping assertion of presidential authority.
