Zvi Mowshowitz: Covid-19 Covid 5/12/22: Other Priorities. There is zero funding for dealing even with the current pandemic, let alone preventing the next one. The FDA not only is in no hurry to approve a vaccine for children, the new highlight is its focus on creating a dire shortage of specialty baby formula. Covid doesn’t kill children, merely causing governments to mandate they not get to have their childhoods, but 40% of formula being out of stock is a much more directly and physically dangerous situation (more)

sarcastic name for Disinformation Governance Board, taken from 1984

The Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) is an advisory board of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), announced on April 27, 2022. The board's stated function is to protect national security by disseminating guidance to DHS agencies on combating foreign misinformation, malinformation, and disinformation. Specific problem areas mentioned by the DHS include false information propagated by human smugglers encouraging migrants to surge to the Mexico–United States border, as well as Russian-state disinformation on election interference and the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.[1][2] On May 18, the board and its working groups were "paused" pending review, and board head Nina Jankowicz resigned, following several days of discussion within the DHS as a result of public backlash, mostly from the political right. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disinformation_Governance_Board

Gordon Brander: If headers did not exist, it would be necessary to invent them. One thing I’ve been thinking about is how to introduce an open-ended metadata primitive to Subconscious app. Key-value metadata is a fundamental pattern that we see emerge repeatedly. Where it doesn’t exist, we often see it bolted on after the fact. (more)

The naturalistic decision making (NDM) framework emerged as a means of studying how people make decisions and perform cognitively complex functions in demanding, real-world situations. These include situations marked by limited time, uncertainty, high stakes, team and organizational constraints, unstable conditions, and varying amounts of experience... The NDM movement originated at a conference in Dayton, Ohio in 1989, which resulted in a book by Gary Klein, Judith Orasanu, Roberta Calderwood, and Caroline Zsambok.[1] The NDM framework focuses on cognitive functions such as decision making, sensemaking, situational awareness, and planning – which emerge in natural settings and take forms that are not easily replicated in the laboratory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturalistic_decision-making (more)

Joel Chan: Sustainable Authorship Models for a Discourse-Based Scholarly Communication Infrastructure · Series 1.2: Business of Knowing. Today's scholarly communication infrastructure is not designed to support scholarly synthesis. When gathering sources for a literature review, researchers need to answer questions about theories, lines of evidence, and claims, and how they inform, support, or oppose each other. This information cannot be found simply in the titles of research papers, in groupings of papers by area, or even in citation or authorship networks. (more)

Julie d'Aubigny (French: [ʒyli dobiɲi]; 1670/1673–1707), better known as Mademoiselle Maupin or La Maupin, was a 17th-century opera singer. Little is known for certain about her life; her tumultuous career and flamboyant lifestyle were the subject of gossip, rumor, and colourful stories in her own time, and inspired numerous fictional and semi-fictional portrayals afterwards. Théophile Gautier loosely based the title character, Madeleine de Maupin, of his novel Mademoiselle de Maupin (1835) on her... She retired from the Paris opera in 1705 and took refuge in a convent, probably in Provence, where she is believed to have died in 1707 at the age of 33. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_d%27Aubigny (more)
