Viorel Ilişoi – PressOne: Scrisoare către eroul meu (Mugur Călinescu)

Dragă prietene,

Îngăduie-mi să-ți zic așa, chiar dacă nu ne-am cunoscut, chiar dacă tu nu mai ești în viață. Ne-am fi putut cunoaște la noi, în Botoșani, și ne-am fi împrietenit, dacă nu te omorau securiștii la nici 20 de ani. Eu cred că asta s-a întâmplat. Într-un fel sau altul, direct sau indirect, asta au făcut. Dar știu că și tu i-ai chinuit rău!

Felix Tătaru: „Milioane de români, o generație sau două, nu mai știu unde e acasă”

La summitul RBL, un profesor de la Stanford a arătat cum investiția în educație duce la creșterea PIB-ului de 1000 de ori sau ceva de genul, oricum efectul era exponențial.

L-a întrebat moderatoarea, „Ce ai face tu aici, în România? Care e sfatul tău?” – Și a zis: „aș face trei lucruri: aș investi în profesori, în profesori și în profesori”. Lăsați sistemul, lăsați abordarea asta. Până să se schimbe sistemul, trebuie să ajungeți la profesor – dacă se schimbă ceva în abordarea lui, atunci ați atins esența.

For Better Brain Health, Preserve Your Hearing – The New York Times

How to Get a Real Google Search Box in Chrome

You know that Google search bar you see when you open a new tab in Google Chrome? Well, it’s not a “true” search field. It actually just redirects all the activity to your browser’s address bar and doesn’t return any search results within the new tab page. Frankly, it’s little more than a useless decoration—at least by default.

Kenyan teacher Peter Tabichi wins $1 million Global Teacher Prize — Quartz

Tabichi left his job at a private school to join the Keriko Secondary School (in Pwani Village, Nakuru, Kenya), where 95% of the students are poor and almost a third are orphans. Drug abuse, teen pregnancies, drop-outs, and suicide are common, and the school has one computer, poor internet access, and a student-teacher ratio of 58:1.

In spite of those circumstances, Tabichi’s science students have won various national science competitions, and qualified to participate at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair 2019 in the US.

PressOne: Viitorul muncii: de ce recalificarea e cheia

Majoritatea rapoartelor privitoare la viitorul muncii (Future of Work) estimează că roboții, inteligența artificială și alte tehnologii vor elimina între 5-15% dintre locurile de muncă în următorii 10 ani. În același timp, noile tehnologii vor crea cel mai probabil un număr similar de locuri de muncă, dar în alte domenii.

I asked my students to turn in their cell phones and write about living without them – MIT Technology Review

I extemporized a solution: I offered them extra credit if they would give me their phones for nine days and write about living without them. Twelve students—about a third of the class—took me up on the offer. What they wrote was remarkable, and remarkably consistent. These university students, given the chance to say what they felt, didn’t gracefully submit to the tech industry and its devices.

The Best Book Yet on Parenting Screen-Addicted Kids

Graber asks her seventh-grade students to commit to a 24-hour technology fast. At first most students don’t think they can do it. But when they do, they often remember that they enjoy doing things like going outside and riding their bike. Graber encourages parents to try this digital cleanse, too. Use the time to compose a list with your children of 100 nonscreen activities. Post the list on the fridge, and consult it when you feel the pull of your devices.

Dezacorduri care clădesc – Adrian Stanciu

Deci, dacă oamenii nu pot fi convinși cu argumente, atunci cum pot ei fi convinși? Răspunsul la întrebarea asta e simplu: nu pot fi, se conving singuri. Întrebarea mai importantă însă, aici, e de ce ați vrea să-i convingeți? Demersul de convingere, în totalitatea lui, e profund viciat din capul locului, pentru că pleacă de la premiza că există două puncte de vedere, unul 100% corect și altul 100% fals și că e important să câștige cel corect. Această premiză este, evident, complet falsă, practic de fiecare dată.

Welcome to a new decade of runaway technological booms, historic watershed moments, and extraordinary abundance.

Let’s dive in.

Air filters create huge educational gains – Vox

The impact of the air filters is strikingly large given what a simple change we’re talking about. The school district didn’t reengineer the school buildings or make dramatic education reforms; they just installed $700 commercially available filters that you could plug into any room in the country. But it’s consistent with a growing literature on the cognitive impact of air pollution, which finds that everyone from chess players to baseball umpires to workers in a pear-packing factory suffer deteriorations in performance when the air is more polluted.

Seth Godin: Awareness vs. experience | Seth’s Blog

EXCLUSIV Cum ne omoară poluarea din București – concluziile raportului Institutului de Sănătate Publică – Administratie Locala – HotNews.ro

Studiul făcut de Institutul Național de Sănătate Publică, realizat pentru perioada 2010-2017, arată că în București este o asociere certă între creșterea poluării cu PM10 și PM2,5 (praf) și numărul tot mai mare de boli grave care afectează bucureștenii: infarct acut de miocard, infecţii acute ale căilor respiratorii superioare,accident vascular cerebral, bronhopneumopatie obstructivă cronică (BPOC). Documentul obținut de HotNews.ro arată că, dacă poluarea ar fi scăzut la nivelul asumat în 2010, bucureștenii ar avea o speranță de viaţă mai lungă cu 4 ani.

“Better” Means Stronger, Kinder, and Wiser
What better is really about is about being stronger, kinder, and wiser. That’s the kind of growth I think we ought to be after. I know I don’t want to have any traditional measures of performance on my tombstone. But I do want folks to remember me as strong, kind and wise — those are the attributes that really matter; and the journey ought to be about becoming them.

The Dunning-Kruger effect, and how to fight it, explained by psychologist David Dunning – Vox

Brian Resnick:
Is there a healthy way to be skeptical, humble, and aware of these cognitive blind spots we have?

David Dunning:
Ask yourself where you could be wrong if the decision is an important one. Or how can your plans end up in disaster?

Think that through — it matters. Think about what you don’t know. That is, check your assumptions.

Paul Graham – The Lesson to Unlearn

The most damaging thing you learned in school wasn’t something you learned in any specific class. It was learning to get good grades.

Dr. Simona Tivadar: „Una dintre greşelile de alimentaţie este că am scăzut consumul de legume şi l-am crescut nejustificat pe cel de fructe”

Perioada sărbătorilor aduce, de obicei, şi câteva kilograme în plus de care vrem să scăpăm prin diete, luate adesea de pe internet. Simona Tivadar, medic primar specializat în diabet, nutriţie şi boli metabolice, arată într-un interviu pentru MedicHub care sunt greşelile pe care le fac cei mai mulţi dintre oameni atunci când vine vorba de diete.

Time Management Is About More Than Life Hacks
Three particular skills separate time management success from failure:
– Awareness: thinking realistically about your time by understanding it is a limited resource.
– Arrangement: designing and organizing your goals, plans, schedules, and tasks to effectively use time.
– Adaptation: monitoring your use of time while performing activities, including adjusting to interruptions or changing priorities.

Cum poate crește România
Toate aceste estimări se bazează pe tendințele actuale și pe faptul că nu se iau măsuri radicale pentru a schimba direcția economiei. Totuși, avem un potențial uriaș, iar diferența între un dezastru și o țară prosperă va fi făcută de abilitatea noastră, ca societate (deci nu doar a autorităților) de a folosi acest potențial.

Emma Willard’s Maps of Time – The Public Domain Review
In the 21st-century, infographics are everywhere. In the classroom, in the newspaper, in government reports, these concise visual representations of complicated information have changed the way we imagine our world. Susan Schulten explores the pioneering work of Emma Willard (1787–1870), a leading feminist educator whose innovative maps of time laid the groundwork for the charts and graphics of today.

Nir Eyal interview: The power to become “indistractable” – Omniconvert Blog
Time management is pain management:
The root cause of distraction comes from the moment when people start feeling stressed, anxious or fatigued, thus reaching out to take their mind off the problem. Ask yourself a crucial question in this case: what are you escaping from? The answer lies in the fact that you believe there is no other solution, method, technique or tool to help deal with a certain discomfort in a healthier manner. Therefore, Nir mentions in his book that time management is perceived as pain management.

(de ce să faci binele, chiar dacă ești doar unul)
The Power of the People Around You
Consider a 2010 study of United States Air Force Cadets in which psychologists from the National Bureau of Economic Research tracked a cohort of cadets over 4 years. […]
It turns out the determining factor as to whether the 30 cadets within a squadron improved was the motivation of the least fit person in the group. If the least fit person was motivated to improve, then his enthusiasm spread and everyone improved. If, on the other hand, the least fit person was apathetic or, worse, negative, he dragged everyone down. Just like diseases easily spread through tight-knit groups, so does motivation. And it’s quite contagious.

The striking images reveal a surprising level of structure hidden within the churning plasma exterior, bringing a previously hazy impression of the sun’s patchwork surface sharply into focus for the first time.
“These are the highest resolution images of the solar surface ever taken,” said Thomas Rimmele, the director of the Inouye solar telescope project. “What we previously thought looked like a bright point – one structure – is now breaking down into many smaller structures.”

You want to reduce the carbon footprint of your food? Focus on what you eat, not whether your food is local – Our World in Data

‘Eating local’ is a recommendation you hear often – even from prominent sources, including the United Nations. While it might make sense intuitively – after all, transport does lead to emissions – it is one of the most misguided pieces of advice.

[…]

GHG emissions from transportation make up a very small amount of the emissions from food and what you eat is far more important than where your food traveled from.

Why Americans Are Always Running Out of Time – The Atlantic

Each of these innovations could have saved hours of labor. But none of them did. At first, these new machines compensated for the decline in home servants. (They helped cause that decline, as well.) Then housework expanded to fill the available hours. In 1920, full-time housewives spent 51 hours a week on housework, according to Juliet Schor, an economist and the author of The Overworked American. In the 1950s, they worked 52 hours a week. In the 1960s, they worked 53 hours. Half a century of labor-saving technology does not appear to have saved the typical housewife even one minute of labor.

Humans are hardwired to dismiss facts that don’t fit their worldview

This picture is a bit grim, because it suggests that facts alone have limited power to resolve politicized issues like climate change or immigration policy. But properly understanding the phenomenon of denial is surely a crucial first step to addressing it.

Avast’s Shutdown of Jumpshot Will Harm the Web and the World | SparkToro https://sparktoro.com/blog/avasts-shutdown-of-jumpshot-will-harm-the-web-and-the-world/

Jumpshot was one of the best and only sources for collecting high quality, aggregated, fully anonymized data about how people use the web. It’s loss will be felt keenly across numerous industries, including the web marketing world. But, in my opinion, the greatest loss is for those who seek to hold powerful tech companies to account for their lies and anti-competitive behavior.

Meta descriptions and branding have the most influence on search clickthrough, survey finds – Search Engine Land https://searchengineland.com/meta-descriptions-and-branding-have-the-most-influence-on-search-clickthrough-survey-finds-328579

The biggest influence on clickthrough. When asked which factor most influenced their decision to click on a result, 62.9% of respondents said it was the description, 24.2% said it was the brand name and 13% said it was the title. However, as a somewhat contradictory finding, 55.1% of participants said that they only click on a brand they know within the search results.

Rethinking Technical SEO Audits – Andrew Charlton https://bertiecharlton.com/rethinking-technical-seo-audits/

Technical audits can be one of the most inefficient SEO deliverables shared with clients. They’re inefficient because the time invested in completing them is offset by the low volume of recommendations implemented by the client. If your clients aren’t implementing your recommendations, you’re wasting your time. The majority of clients don’t have enterprise budgets, so time is everything, and there’s none to waste.

Why You Should Choose HTML5 <article> Over <section> — Smashing Magazine https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2020/01/html5-article-section/

Browsers’ visual display of headings nested inside <section> elements makes it look as if they are assigning a logical hierarchy to those headings. However, this is purely visual and is not communicated to assistive technologies. What use is <section>, and how should authors mark up headings that are hugely important to AT users?

Should you self-host Google Fonts? | Tune The Web https://www.tunetheweb.com/blog/should-you-self-host-google-fonts/

Now, to be totally up front, I’ll admit that fonts are not my strong point. I’m much more practical than design-y (look at this website for evidence of that!) and have never totally got the need for fonts. Sure they look a bit nicer, and can understand they make a message seem more on-brand, but for the main body of text at least they seem more of a nice to have – I’ve never read an article more or less (or treated the contents any differently) because it had a pretty font. However, I’ve also been acutely aware of the performance implications of them so maybe that’s clouded my view of them.
