Them Terrib.. [EXCLUSIVE]
Many UX professionals I've met are proud that UX is an evidence-based profession that designs successful products by championing empathy and resisting the human tendency to cater to one's desires. In our work, we use techniques that feel unusual, but we engage in them regardless because they're effective. UX teams should apply that same data-driven thinking to how they interview and evaluate candidates. By structuring your hiring interviews, you will reduce the chances of costly bad hires and cultivate a high-performing design team. Job seekers can also recognize structured interviewing as an important clue that a UX team cares about hiring talented people while promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Despite the arrival of AI/ML technologies that attempt to screen job applicants algorithmically, it's hard to envision a future where UX teams hire anyone without human interaction or evaluation. Hiring interviews, for all their challenges, will always be with us. Let's start doing them better.
Still, some children will breeze through the terrible twos with less tantrums than others. This is especially the case if they have advanced language skills, which help them express themselves more clearly and cut down on frustration.
The terrible twos can sometimes roll into the terrible threes. But by the time a child is 4, they usually have enough language and motor development to express themselves, understand instructions, and follow rules set by teachers and caregivers.
One other question I have about NFTs is how does this relate to licensing? I shoot events, retain copyright, and license my images to my clients. Very rarely, I may license an event image to another customer, such as a book publisher. I also retain rights to my images so that I can use them to promote my business. I am not interested in selling NFTs if it means giving up my copyrights. Do NFTs have anything to contribute to a licensing business model? Are the two essentially incompatible?
Or because the smoke-and-mirrors around what you actually own vs what you are made to believe you own fools them into thinking they actually own some art and not just a "proof of purchase of that proof of purchase"?
Freddie.Photog dare not dream about capitalizing on 20 years of studious and contemplative work that otherwise has failed to secure an audience among gear whores, bitter amateurs that failed to turn pro, and the wet masses at those Sunday organic farmers markets who expertly dodge his makeshift tarp-SUV gallery, all the while hoping that the drips won't find a path to ruin the prints before they've had a chance to be haggled for less than the cost of printing them.
In studies conducted across a range of industries, Christine has found that people who experience a state of thriving are healthier, more resilient, and more able to focus on their work. When people feel even an inkling of thriving, it tends to buffer them from distractions, stress, and negativity. In a study of six organizations across six different industries, employees characterized as highly thriving demonstrated 1.2 times less burnout compared with their peers. They were also 52% more confident in themselves and their ability to take control of a situation. They were far less likely to have negativity drag them into distraction or self-doubt.
While other scientists continued to use modern-day lizards as a model, with dinosaurs featuring legs that splayed out from the sides of their bodies, Owen was sure that the animals' legs would have been directly under their bodies to support their large sizes. He depicted them in a similar fashion and proportion to modern quadrupedal mammals.
FLoC is meant to be a new way to make your browser do the profiling that third-party trackers used to do themselves: in this case, boiling down your recent browsing activity into a behavioral label, and then sharing it with websites and advertisers. The technology will avoid the privacy risks of third-party cookies, but it will create new ones in the process. It may also exacerbate many of the worst non-privacy problems with behavioral ads, including discrimination and predatory targeting.
Tech companies earn staggering profits by targeting ads to us based on our online behavior. This incentivizes all online actors to collect as much of our behavioral information as possible, and then sell it to ad tech companies and the data brokers that service them. This pervasive online behavioral surveillance...
Cookies are dying, and the tracking industry is scrambling to replace them. Google has proposed Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC), TURTLEDOVE, and other bird-themed tech that would have browsers do some of the behavioral profiling that third-party trackers do today. But a coalition of independent surveillance advertisers has...
Passwords have also become a commodity. When a company suffers a data breach, sometimes stolen login information is sold on secret online marketplaces. Other attackers buy the data, perhaps adding more information from other breaches and reselling it, or using it to commit some kind of money-making fraud themselves.
In the future, authentication will likely happen with multiple devices, potentially without using passwords. The technology already exists for it, and I test it all the time when I review hardware multi-factor keys. However, password-free login isn't widely adopted, and there remains little appetite for people to buy a device just for authentication. Moreover, password-less login can often include biometrics, with all the problems that come with them.
For added security, use multi-factor authentication (MFA), so your security doesn't depend on a password alone. In practice, MFA usually requires a password (from a password manager) and a code generator app or hardware key. Since an attacker isn't likely to have both forms of authentication, it's much harder for them to take over your accounts.
We've never been closer to freeing ourselves from passwords for good, but for now we're stuck with them. They're frustrating yet flexible, elegant yet insecure, and they're probably the best solution for the foreseeable future.
Miller recommends gift cards for services like oil changes, car washes, house cleaning or dog walking. "[Think] about the pain points in their everyday life. What are they stressed about having to take care of? How can you take care of that for them?" she says.
Consider giving them a memento that relates to a memory you both share, she says. Let's say your partner proposed to you this year at the fancy French restaurant where you first met. Miller says reach out to the business and ask for some help. Maybe get a print copy of the menu from that day and put it in a nice frame. Or get "the secret recipe to their amazing pumpkin bread," says Miller. It shows you went the extra mile to get something special.
For these folks, activity-based gifts are the way to go, says Miller. "You want [to get something with the] implication that we're going to work on this thing together." Think Lego sets (this one that looks like succulents doubles as home decor), jigsaw puzzles and board games (like this addictive two-player mushroom-hunting game, Morels). You could even get them a membership to a local museum you both enjoy.
"If you can get your arms around the underlying anxiety that's driving people to act that way," Foster tells CNBC Make It, "it is a roadmap on how to keep them from getting anxious so they have to do that."
Giving them occasional compliments will reduce their angry outbursts. But at the same time, it's important to also stand up for yourself. If he or she takes credit for your work, find ways to show you were involved, Foster says. For example, if you're submitting a big report, you can CC your boss or other colleagues involved in it. If your work is being discussed in a meeting, you can find ways to show that you were involved.
So why do prisons exist? In theory, because we need them. They keep bad guys off the street. They give people a reason to not commit crimes. They provide a place where violent or otherwise threatening people can be rehabilitated.
The most intriguing evidence comes from Argentina, where Harvard's Rafael Di Tella and Torcuato Di Tella University's Ernesto Schargrodsky found that electronic monitoring cuts recidivism nearly in half relative to a prison sentence. That raises the possibility that electronic monitoring could be more than merely a supplement to prisons. It could replace many of them. The program evaluated used something a bit less technologically sophisticated than GPS tracking. Offenders wore an ankle bracelet which transmitted a signal to a receptor in their home. If the signal is interrupted, or the device appears to be manipulated, or the vital signs of the individual are not being transmitted from the bracelet, then the receptor calls it in.
Better technology only strengthens the case. Previous electronic monitoring systems, like the one Di Tella and Schargrodsky studied, involving bracelets transmitting signals to a receptor, fell short in cases of escape. They left police with no sense of where escapees have gone. GPS tagging changes that (at least for confinees who flee with their bracelet still on). "The GPS tagging technology now available enables the development of a tagging regime that works," Rory Geoghegan, a crime policy researcher at the British think tank Policy Exchange, writes. "One that protects and controls offenders, but also aids them to change, because constant supervision of a wearer's location accords with the academic evidence that certainty and swiftness of sanctions is more critical than the severity of any sanction ultimately invoked, and is therefore the best basis for behavior change."
But if successful, this plan could reduce admissions by at least half, probably much more. Hopefully, this will just be a temporary measure. In principle, it could get to the point technologically where house arrest becomes as hard to escape as prison is. At that point, abolishing prison outright starts to become imaginable. UK home secretary David Blunkett spoke too soon when he referred to electronic monitoring as "prison without bars," but that dream is attainable. As Kleiman once put it, "My view is that if you know where someone is, you don't have to put them in the cage." 350c69d7ab
