PDF output is searchable with Adobe Reader but not with Mac Preview - MobileRead Forums
I had the same issue with a couple of PDFs that were created with Calibre, and managed to fix it by transforming them using Ghostscript.
I ran the following command to have Ghostscript recreate the PDFs:
gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile="<New PDF file>" "<Original PDF file>" refrr:https://www.google.com/

Keesler Welch on Twitter: "David Laibson's 9 lenses on wellbeing since revealed preference is imperfect. #ASSA2018 https://t.co/3FZT2EQgy0"

1. Revealed preference
2. expert opinion (Samuelson on index funds; GDP; consumption)
3. Educated consumers (force a choice @ end of training session)
4. Choices with unshrouded information (but beware of oversalience)
5. Long-run behavior (repeated rounds of feedback)
6. Choices for the future (omitting present bias)
7. Structural models with normative preferences and biases
8. Altrustic third parties (?)
9. Subjective well-being (real time, ex-poste, ex-ante, affective, life satisfaction)

Digital Health Atlas

Getting this right will be hard. The Digital Health Atlas is a Global web-platform to curate digital health implementations, supporting Ministries of Health, technologists and implementers to map, monitor, and foster digital health innovation investments to meet Government health goals. It’s ambitious but has had little use, partly because it’s too complex.

Africa’s digital knowledge economy worrying - SciDev.Net Sub-Saharan Africa
While connectivity plays a role in all three categories, it seems to have a strong effect only on digital content creation. On the other hand, the production of academic articles is more strongly related to a country’s gross domestic product (GDP) than to connectivity. Innovation capacity appears to have a positive relationship to all three content types. Education as a topically narrower variable appears to be related only to variance in academic articles. refrr:https://t.co/ykTdiP9JTA

SUBJECT: Policies for Federal Agency Public Websites and Digital Services
Agencies can often use the Fast Track clearance process under the Paperwork Reduction Act
(PRA) for the collection of service delivery feedback.8 In particular, the Fast Track process
allows agencies to gather timely feedback from users through the following types of
voluntary information collections:
● Focus groups;
● One-time or panel discussion groups;
● Customer satisfaction qualitative surveys;
● Post-transaction customer surveys;
● Online surveys;
● Comment cards or complaint forms;
● Moderated, unmoderated, in-person, and remote usability studies; and
● Testing of a survey or other collection to refine questions.
