Boys will be … – expanding education
It happened at a high school in suburban Santa Fe, Texas, and the shooter was a 17-year-old Greek-American youth whose Facebook page showed him wearing a t-shirt with the words “Born to Kill” on it. (One work they nominated was an essay called “SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police.”) In fact, the Hugo Awards made changes to their voting systems to reduce the power of such campaigns. If a student does voice or reveal some toxic masculine assumptions and ideals, don’t shut him down, even if those opinions deeply bother you, unless what he’s said amounts to hate speech. This is not an “old boys’ club” by any means: it’s a place for young men to safely talk about their experiences, emotions, and challenges, kind of a social-emotional haven where they can develop self-regulation and coping strategies. Or invite positive role models from a wide range of professions in the community to come in and speak about anything from mental health and relationships to how to succeed in a high-stakes corporate environment.

What the 1990 election can - and can't - tell us about the Ontario NDP's chances today | CBC News
Andrea Horwath's New Democrats have made significant gains in the polls since the Ontario election campaign kicked off a little more than two weeks ago. Peterson had won a majority government only three years earlier in 1987, in an election that left the NDP as the Official Opposition and reduced the Progressive Conservatives to third party status. The final poll of the campaign, conducted by Angus Reid for Southam News, put the New Democrats ahead by four points with 38 per cent — which is just about where they ended up on election night. Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne began the campaign as the country's least popular premier and 83 per cent of Ontarians say they want change, according to an Abacus Data poll . This is because the PC vote is more efficient — the party has a better base of support and is ahead in the Greater Toronto Area, where nearly half the seats in the province are located.

I know you’re busy, but thought it could be a useful connection because [upside: e.g., you share a passion for analytics / he could be a good asset to your team / she has experience in something you want to know about].

Time to tackle the culture question in PhD programs | University Affairs
Many of us were happy to be working in what some call an “alternative career.” Graduating with a PhD in history that day was an economic development consultant, a chef-school professor, a magazine editor, and a co-founder of a community outreach organization in Toronto. I shared stories of what it was like to work with and learn from a group of incredibly smart, passionate colleagues with a range of interesting experiences outside of academe. I do not want to minimize the effort that universities, departments and faculties (in collaboration with career centres, graduate studies offices, and student support services) are making to tackle this challenge. Just as important are the language, culture, and expectations that PhD students encounter on a daily basis during committee meetings, departmental social events and in casual conversation in the hallways. It is powerful enough that the faculty member who told my family I gave up probably didn’t even realize how his remark could be taken as anything but a positive comment about my promise and capabilities.

Opinion | Predatory Colleges, Freed to Fleece Students - The New York Times
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos claimed ignorance when she was asked during a congressional hearing on Tuesday how many of the college students who told her department that they had been ripped off were complaining about for-profit schools. A congressional investigation during the 1950s found that schools had cropped up to fleece veterans, siphoning hundreds of millions of dollars while providing worthless training. In 2014, the bureau sued Corinthian Colleges, which soon collapsed amid charges that it had lured poor and working-class students by lying to them about job-placement rates — then saddled them with predatory loans. Bill , which restored veterans benefits to thousands of men and women who had found themselves shut out of school when for-profit programs charged with fraud closed their doors. The bill would also blur the distinction between for-profit and other colleges, allowing for-profit career training programs to escape regulatory scrutiny that is now required under federal statute and regulation.

[1611.05994] A Dissection of the Test-Driven Development Process: Does It Really Matter to Test-First or to Test-Last?
Abstract: Background: Test-driven development (TDD) is a technique that repeats short
coding cycles interleaved with testing. Many empirical studies neglect unique process
characteristics related to TDD iterative nature. Aim: We formulate four process
characteristic: sequencing, granularity, uniformity, and refactoring effort. Method: We analyzed 82 data points collected from 39
professionals, each capturing the process used while performing a specific
development task. We built regression models to assess the impact of process
characteristics on quality and productivity.

Canadian Copyright, Fair Dealing and Education, Part Three: Exploring the Impact of Site Licensing at Canadian Universities - Michael Geist
I am advised that the licence permits copying reasonable portions for educational or research purposes, printing or inter-library loans of materials, and links to articles within electronic reserves or course management systems. The inclusion of the Winnipeg Free Press is worth highlighting since its publisher, Bob Cox, has been outspoken on the need for copyright reform, yet neglects to mention that he has sold perpetual access to 141 years of the paper’s archives. In other words, licence holders such as the University of Alberta have fully compensated the Winnipeg Free Press for the potential copying of thousands of articles without implicating Access Copyright or fair dealing. The committee has already heard from libraries confirming that they have shifted to digital-first purchasing policies, where the digital version of a work is preferred given the greater flexibility the licences typically offer for access and teaching. The University of Ottawa is particularly interesting in this regard since it licences both English and French books from dozens of Canadian publishers (thanks to librarians Tony Horava and Sarah Hill for the assistance).

The Rich Get the Most Out of College - Bloomberg
Shell’s New York Times op-ed entitled “College may not be worth it anymore,” argued that the monetary returns to higher education are much lower for poor families than for middle-class or rich ones. Source: Timothy J. Bartik, Brad J. Hershbein, "Degrees of Poverty: The Relationship Between Family Income Background and the Returns to Education," 2018, Upjohn Institute for Employment Research And interestingly, for people from families actually below the poverty line, Bartik and Hershbein found a very large premium of 179 percent, although their estimates are less precise. So Bartik and Hershbein’s research doesn’t provide a perfect answer to the question of “Should I go to college?” Still, for most people, it’s probably worth it — as long as you can graduate.

Doug Ford denies allegations he bought memberships to help preferred candidate win Tory nomination | National Post
The losing contender for the Etobicoke Centre nomination, lawyer Pina Martino, filed a complaint, which included testimony from members recruited by Ford, said the former official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “I have been subject to attempts to intimidate me by Doug Ford including him following me home after I had attended to personal business at 22 Division of the Toronto Police Service,” she says in the email, also released by the Liberals. Martino, a former chief of staff to interim Conservative leader Jim Wilson and now ex-leader Patrick Brown, and earlier an aide to the late Toronto mayor Rob Ford, Doug’s brother, could not be reached for comment. Surma vied unsuccessfully for a Toronto city council seat in 2014 — the same year Doug Ford ran for mayor — and also managed the tour for Tory Christine Elliott’s second leadership campaign and worked on caucus relations in Brown’s office. Bernard Trottier, who served as the federal Conservative MP in the neighbouring Etobicoke-Lakeshore riding from 2011 to 2015, told the Post he came to the nomination meeting to support Surma but was dismayed by the flood of new members he saw.

Modifying the Python object model [LWN.net]
At the 2018 Python Language Summit, Carl Shapiro described some of
the experiments that he and others at Instagram did to look at ways to
improve the
performance of the CPython interpreter. By modifying the Python object
model fairly substantially, they were able to roughly double the performance
of the "classic" Richards benchmark . Shapiro's overall point was that he felt Python sacrificed its performance for
flexibility and generality, but the dynamic features are typically not used
heavily in
performance-sensitive production workloads. But Shapiro
may not be aware that the Python
core developers have often preferred simpler, more understandable
code that is easier to read and follow, over more complex algorithms and
data structures
in the interpreter. It is part of the C API, though, so
reference counting must be maintained for C extensions; in the experiment, the
Instagram developers moved to a tracing garbage collector everywhere else.

Hyperparameter Optimization with Keras – Towards Data Science
This can be handled with some changes to the way f1 score deals with corner cases such as “all zeros,” “all ones,” and “no true positives.” But that’s a big topic, and outside of the scope of this article, so for now I just want to make it clear that this problem is a very important part of getting systemic hyperparameter optimization to work. A simple rank order correlation shows that lr (learning rate) has the strongest effect on our performance metric, which in this case is val_acc (validation accuracy). I wanted to see the remaining parameters — kernel initializer, batch size, hidden layers, and epochs — all in the same picture compared against validation accuracy and loss. Uniform kernel initializer is doing a great job in keeping the loss down throughout all epoch, batch size, and hidden layer variations. Start as simply and broadly as possible Try to learn as much as possible about the experiment and your hypothesis Try not to focus on the final result much for the first iterations Make sure that your performance metric is right Remember that performance is not enough, as it tends to lead you away from generality Each iteration should reduce parameter space and model complexity Don’t by afraid to try things, it is an experiment after all Use methods you can understand e.g. clearly visualized descriptive statistics

Why Cat Sews (Spiritwalker Monday 30) | I Make Up Worlds
(a)ll eight mending baskets were set neatly in a row on the narrow side table, for the women of the house–Aunt Tilly, me, Beatrice, her little sisters, our governess, Cook, and Callie–would sit in the parlor in the evening and sew while Uncle or Evved read aloud from a book and Pompey trimmed the candle wicks. Our governness, Shiffa, had been imported all the way from the Barahal motherhouse in Gadir to teach us girls deportment, fencing, dancing, sewing, and how to memorize large blocks of text so we could write them down or repeat them later. It gives her a bit of status and respect, and as well creates an interesting contrast to her old life because in the city of Expedition, sewing (as well as tailoring for both men and women) is a predominantly male profession. Additionally, she mends while conversing with other women (because hand-work like sewing is a job that can be done while listening and talking), and the ties she builds with other people are crucial to her success in being accepted in a new place. Finally, I emphasize her sewing because I want to make a statement about the importance of all the different kinds of work that underpin human society, especially those that, in my experience, are too often brushed aside in the science and fantasy fiction that I love to both read and write.

The Progressive Economics Forum » NDP Math Error will Help the Party, Not Hurt It
The true effect on the bottom line is $700 million per year (not $1.4 billion), because the reserve itself was funny money in the first place; removing it has no real fiscal impact. NDP Leader Andrea Horwath quickly acknowledged the error, and then pledged (credibly) that it would not alter the overall trajectory of program spending and taxes under her government. In previous work I argued that Doug Ford would face a serious fiscal challenge to reconcile his self-evidently contradictory promises of tax cuts, new program spending, and a reduction in the provincial deficit. So far the only source of funds to pay for all these promises is Mr. Ford’s laughable, unspecified “efficiencies.” Get on your unicorns, people, and ride to the fiscal happy place. At the bottom line, the net fiscal retrenchment will be similar to what I suggested in the first place: around 1 percent of GDP in the third year, with a corresponding hit on jobs.

The Number of Female Chief Executives Is Falling - The New York Times
The reversal is leading to a search beyond the usual explanations for why women don’t become chief executives — things like not being competitive enough, failing to chase opportunities for promotion and choosing work-life balance over high-powered jobs. Twelve left their jobs — most recently, Denise Morrison of Campbell Soup Company, who abruptly announced her retirement Friday — and four joined the list. And of those, just 21 percent have roles related to generating revenue, which generally lead to C-level jobs, according to the annual Women in the Workplace study by Lean In and McKinsey. A recent analysis of 2,600 executives found that men and women did not differ on multiple areas that were assessed, including interpersonal, analytical and managerial skills and general ability. With her departure, the number of female chief executives in the Fortune 500 declined 25 percent from last year.CreditErik Tanner for The New York TimesOne reason, other studies have shown, is that we unconsciously assume good leaders are male, and we have mixed feelings about women who have successful careers.

H I Sutton - Covert Shores
Passage in the service tunnel over the reactor (to reach the machinery space aft) had to be carried out in 3-5 seconds, else the crew member could receive a lethal dose of radiation(!). With the bow jam-packed full of torpedoes the sonar, both active and passive, was relegated to a ‘balcony’ array in the fin (sail), giving it a distinctive broken nose appearance which also characterized the later A-11 as built. Although Sweden was sucking in German and US design influences, the focus on small submarines and reducing crews had led Swedish engineers to be quite innovative and independently minded. The smaller A-13 design was a radical rebuild of the World War Two A4 ‘Kustbatar’ Class, with a sonar array in the bow, new fin (sail) and completely new aft section. The boat already had the equal-diameter main hull sections which were being adopted in upcoming US Navy nuclear attack submarines, and had the advanced ‘X’ form control surfaces then being tested on USS Albacore.
