Who Is Afraid of More Spams and Scams? — Krebs on Security
Security researchers who rely on data included in Web site domain name records to combat spammers and scammers will likely lose access to that information for at least six months starting at the end of May 2018, under a new proposal that seeks to bring the system in line with new European privacy laws. The result, some experts warn, will likely mean more spams and scams landing in your inbox.
On May 25, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect. The law, enacted by the European Parliament, requires companies to get affirmative consent for any personal information they collect on people within the European Union. Organizations that violate the GDPR could face fines of up to four percent of global annual revenues.
In response, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) — the nonprofit entity that manages the global domain name system — has proposed redacting key bits of personal data from WHOIS, the system for querying databases that store the registered users of domain names and blocks of Internet address ranges (IP addresses).

How can we measure and report progress meaningfully?
Instead of spuriously converting raw scores or marks from tests and assessments into guessed bell-curved 1-9 grades, we should simply record and report them as they are.  These could be averaged across several tests or kept as a list of individual scores.  Tell it as it is. However, as I’ve discussed elsewhere,  scores only make sense as indicators of standards in comparison to something.  A safe bet is to use the school or class cohort average.  (Or better still, the graphic representations Matthew Benyohai uses in his blog).  So Geography: 78%; class average 65%.  Art : 70%;  Class average 74%. This is authentic and meaningful.

GCSE exams: Keeping a proportionate positive perspective
Despite the fact that we’ve been running Y11 exams in one form or another for decades, there is always a fairly strong undercurrent in the discourse around the annual exam season characterised by a sense of injustice and unreasonableness. [...] Let me restore some balance.
