Hacking my body clock by getting up at 4am changed my life – for the worse | Arwa Mahdawi | Opinion | The Guardian
Please, fellow night owls, do not suffer like I did. Listen to your body; do not force yourself to be someone else. If someone invites you to a stupid breakfast meeting at a stupid hour, feel free to tell them No. Defend your chronotype and never let anyone disrespect your DNA.

A very EU coup: Martin Selmayr’s astonishing power grab | The Spectator
Martin Selmayr has always dreamed of being known beyond the Brussels bubble. His wish has now been granted, albeit in not quite the way he might have hoped. It has arrived in the form of a brilliantly executed coup that has handed this 47-year-old German bureaucrat near-total control of the EU machine.

The Man Who Knew Too Little - The New York Times
Right after the election, Erik Hagerman decided he’d take a break from reading about the hoopla of politics. Donald Trump’s victory shook him. Badly. And so Mr. Hagerman developed his own eccentric experiment, one that was part silent protest, part coping mechanism, part extreme self-care plan. He swore that he would avoid learning about anything that happened to America after Nov. 8, 2016. “It was draconian and complete,” he said. “It’s not like I wanted to just steer away from Trump or shift the conversation. It was like I was a vampire and any photon of Trump would turn me to dust.” It was just going to be for a few days. But he is now more than a year into knowing almost nothing about American politics. He has managed to become shockingly uninformed during one of the most eventful chapters in modern American history. He is as ignorant as a contemporary citizen could ever hope to be.

How Lies Spread Online - The New York Times
For all categories of information — politics, entertainment, business and so on — we found that false stories spread significantly farther, faster and more broadly than did true ones. Falsehoods were 70 percent more likely to be retweeted, even when controlling for the age of the original tweeter’s account, its activity level, the number of its followers and followees, and whether Twitter had verified the account as genuine. These effects were more pronounced for false political stories than for any other type of false news.

Photobook Captures Diverse Beauty of 100 Different Types of Chickens
If you were asked to name the most beautiful species of bird in the world, it’s unlikely that “chicken” would be your first answer. However, Italian photographers Moreno Monti and Matteo Tranchellini believe chickens are underrated. The two began a portrait project called Chic!ken to show the world just how beautiful these humble farm birds really are. Today, with over 200 stunning portraits showcasing 100 different types of chickens, the pair decided to combine the collection into a hardback photobook.

Rich with different strategies to master and challenges to vanquish, it’s deep, complex and “near-perfect”. And yet Ma says that he and Davis spent half of the four years the game took to make on… its UI. Its UI! The truth, however, is that the UI is a big part of what makes Into the Breach great, even though it also ended up transforming its very nature.

Dropbox saved almost $75 million over two years by building its own tech infrastructure – GeekWire
Starting in 2015, Dropbox began to move users of its file-storage service away from AWS’s S3 storage service and onto its own custom-designed infrastructure and software, and the cost benefits were immediate. From 2015 to 2016, Dropbox saved $39.5 million in the cost of revenue bucket thanks to the project, which reduced spending on “our third-party datacenter service provider” by $92.5 million offset by increased expenses of $53 million for its own data centers. The following year in 2017, it saved an additional $35.1 million in operating costs beyond the 2016 numbers.

3.000 huurders dreigen hun sociale woning te verliezen | VRT NWS
Wie een deel van een huis bezit, heeft geen recht meer op een sociale woning. En Veerle bezit een deel van een huis. Haar vader is 6 jaar geleden overleden, vlak na een scheiding met haar moeder. Haar moeder erft de helft van het huis. Veerle en haar drie broers krijgen de andere helft. Voor ieder een kwart van de helft van het huis. Veerle bezit dus één achtste van het huis, volle eigendom, ter waarde van ongeveer 30.000 euro. Die erfenis breekt Veerle nu zuur op. Op 1 maart van vorig jaar besliste de Vlaamse regering dat iemand die in een sociale woning woont, geen eigenaar mag zijn van een woning of bouwgrond, niet voor de helft, niet voor een kwart, niet voor één percent.

Wanneer gaat het eindelijk weer over ons eigen volk? - België - Knack.be
Uber en Deliveroo zouden namelijk het liefste helemaal géén sociale bijdragen betalen. En wat ook al disruptief is: ze winden daar geen doekjes om. Dat de Belgische werkgeversorganisaties officieel nog altijd het standpunt huldigen dat ook bedrijven een faire bijdrage moeten leveren aan de collectieve welvaart, zal hun worst wezen. Door zo weinig mogelijk kosten te maken, houden ze de tarieven voor hun klanten zo laag mogelijk en de winsten voor henzelf zo hoog mogelijk. Dat willen de meeste bedrijven, natuurlijk, maar de Ubers en Deliveroos van deze wereld passen die visie rücksichtslos toe - op de rug van de sociale zekerheid. Toch wordt tegen hén het argument 'betaalbaarheid van de sociale zekerheid' amper gebruikt.

Wireflows: A UX Deliverable for Workflows and Apps
In the UX field, wireframes are a common deliverable to show page-level layout ideas, whereas flowcharts are useful for documenting complex workflows and user tasks. However, despite the fact that both of these deliverables remain in common use among UX professionals, there are situations in which they are suboptimal tools for communicating design ideas, particularly when documenting mobile, desktop, or web apps that don't have many unique pages, but instead feature a few core pages which change content (or layout) dynamically based on user interaction. In the last few years, an alternative deliverable called wireflow has emerged as a solution to these issues, used to show designs in the context of common user tasks.

Agile Architecture – Scaled Agile Framework
Agile Architecture is a set of values and practices that support the active evolution of the design and architecture of a system while implementing new system capabilities. This approach allows the architecture of a system (even a large solution) to evolve over time, while simultaneously supporting the needs of current users. This avoids the overhead and delays associated with the start-stop-start nature and redesign inherent in phase-gate methods. With Agile architecture, the system always runs, supporting a more continuous flow of value.

Het integratiepact bouwt luchtkastelen
De projectoproep van het integratiepact is het product van haar context. Het is een goedbedoelde maar vage lijst met sleutelkenmerken die voor vernieuwing moeten zorgen. Want een ‘coalition of the willing’ mondt niet vanzelf uit in systeemverandering. Daarvoor is machtsopbouw nodig die niet alleen de geesten verandert, maar ook strijd voert om gesloten deuren te openen en structurele hefbomen op te eisen en te voorzien.

Voorlopig blijven veel middenveldorganisaties op hun honger zitten. Het is niet duidelijk hoe het integratiepact zal leiden tot het dichten van de herkomstkloof, de bestrijding van discriminatie of gegarandeerde grondrechten. Het integratiepact baadt in het beste geval in een authentieke hoop op spontane transitie, en slechter in vrijblijvendheid.

Want to Design User Behavior? Pass the 'Regret Test' First
The tech industry needs a new ethical bar. Google’s motto, “Don’t be evil,” is too vague. The Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” leaves too much room for rationalization. I’d argue that what we ought to be saying is, “Don’t do unto others what they would not want done to them.” But how can we know what users do and don’t want? I humbly propose the “regret test.” If we’re unsure of using an ethically questionable tactic, “If people knew everything the product designer knows, would they still execute the intended behavior? Are they likely to regret doing this?”

Origins of the Sicilian Mafia: The Market for Lemons
In this article, we study the emergence of an extractive institution that hampered economic development in Italy for more than a century: the Sicilian mafia. Since its first appearance in the late 1800s, the reasons behind the rise of the Sicilian mafia have remained a puzzle. In this article, we argue that the mafia arose as a response to an exogenous shock in the demand for oranges and lemons, following Lind's discovery in the late eighteenth century that citrus fruits cured scurvy. More specifically, we claim that mafia appeared in locations where producers made high profits from citrus production for overseas export. Operating in an environment with a weak rule of law, the mafia protected citrus production from predation and acted as intermediaries between producers and exporters. Using original data from a parliamentary inquiry in 1881–1886 on Sicilian towns, the Damiani Inquiry, we show that mafia presence is strongly related to the production of oranges and lemons. The results hold when different data sources and several controls are employed.

Ad retargeters scramble to get consumer consent - Digiday
The enforcement of the GDPR will fundamentally change ad retargeting as we know it, said Dave Morgan, CEO of TV ad-targeting company Simulmedia. As browsers start policing ad tracking, Morgan thinks more users will refuse to consent to handing over their data to ad companies, and aggressive ad targeting will become harder to execute. “I don’t know how one would argue that [the retargeters’] approaches truly amount to clear notice and consent,” Morgan said. “In fact, this is the kind of stuff that holds back digital advertising and undermines the industry’s trustworthiness with both advertisers and users.”

This new approach was made possible with the geocoded data collected since 2014 by the not-for-profit Gun Violence Archive, which tracks shootings and gun deaths using media reports. The FBI’s national crime data only provides gun murder statistics down to the city level, which masks the clustering of violence within neighborhoods.
