Smoking, drinking alcohol, being overweight and other risk factors are responsible for almost half of all cancer deaths worldwide, according to the largest study of its kind.

But, clearly, the behavior itself raises questions and privacy risks for TikTok users.

According to a new whitepaper published by API security firm Wallarm, titled ‘API vulnerabilities discovered and exploited in Q1-2022’, a total of 48 API-related vulnerabilities were found and reported in the first quarter.

The critical vulnerabilities disclosed publicly earned themselves CVSS v3 scores ranging from 8.1 and 10.

Berry Paradox
Berry Paradox Berry Paradox

Perhaps another helpful analogy to Berry's Paradox would be the phrase "indescribable feeling".

Resolution EditThe Berry paradox as formulated above arises because of systematic ambiguity in the word "definable".

In other formulations of the Berry paradox, such as one that instead reads: "...not nameable in less..." the term "nameable" is also one that has this systematic ambiguity.

[6] However, one can read Alfred Tarski's contributions to the Liar Paradox to find how this resolution in languages falls short.

That is to say, the definition of the Berry number is paradoxical because it is not actually possible to compute how many words are required to define a number, and we know that such …

It turns out that JavaScript, the programming language that web developers and users alike love to complain about, had a hand in delivering the stunning images that the James Webb Space Telescope has been beaming back to Earth.

And no, I don’t mean that in some snarky way, like that the website NASA hosts them on uses JavaScript (it does).

I mean that the actual telescope, arguably one of humanity’s finest scientific achievements, is largely controlled by JavaScript files.

Christian fundamentalist homeschooling damages children
Christian fundamentalist homeschooling damages children Christian fundamentalist homeschooling damages children

I became close to a conservative Christian homeschooling family that seemed perfect in every way.

But because homeschooling is such a highly politicized issue, it is often difficult to get a clear sense of what is happening from homeschooling parents themselves.

And because many parents see themselves as advocates of homeschooling, they are not always very eager to discuss potential gaps in homeschooling education.

But in light of what Garrison, Diegel Martin and Palmer tell me, it seems irresponsible to assert, as many homeschooling parents do, that homeschooling neglect is just a fringe element in the homeschooling world.

The friars were afflicted with intestinal worms at almost double the rate of Cambridge’s general population—despite the fact that many of the city’s inhabitants lived with sanitary facilities no better than a hole in the ground.

The learned inhabitants of Medieval Cambridge wrote of how parasitic worms were an unpleasant part of life, and in the process displayed a misunderstanding of the problem.

Seventeenth-century medical practitioner John Stockton wrote a manuscript suggesting that different intestinal worms were created by imbalances in the body’s four humors; blood, phlegm, black bile and yellow bile.

Physical buttons outperform touchscreens in new cars, test finds Physical buttons outperform touchscreens in new cars, test finds

The screens in modern cars keep getting bigger.

Design teams at most car manufacturers love to ditch physical buttons and switches, although they are far superior safety-wise.

That is the conclusion when Swedish car magazine Vi Bilägare performed a thurough test of the HMI system (Human-Machine Interface) in a total of twelve cars this summer.

Inspiration for the screen-heavy interiors in modern cars comes from smartphones and tablets.

One important aspect of this test is that the drivers had time to get to know the cars and their infotainment systems before the test started.

Stable Diffusion is a latent text-to-image diffusion model.

Similar to Google's Imagen, this model uses a frozen CLIP ViT-L/14 text encoder to condition the model on text prompts.

Note: Stable Diffusion v1 is a general text-to-image diffusion model and therefore mirrors biases and (mis-)conceptions that are present in its training data.

Valuable insights at the right time: Determining the ideal level of design fidelity for user testing Valuable insights at the right time: Determining the ideal level of design fidelity for user testing

One of the ways we learn fast is by carrying out evaluative research to build confidence in the product design direction we’re pursuing.

This approach to user testing poses an important and ongoing question – what’s the right level of design fidelity to present to your research participants?

So to determine the correct design fidelity, you need to identify which of the following problems you are trying to solve:Testing concepts: Does this idea have value?

Once you have settled on the problem you are trying to solve, that will help determine what level of design fidelity is required of your research stimulus.

Over the last two decades, growth marketing has continued to grow in popularity even though most executives and many marketers continue to maintain a fuzzy — at best — grasp of the concept.

The senior PE frequently overlooks technical complexity and business context, and gives far more technical opportunities to the men on the team.

I’m caught in the middle and feel like I’m aligned with the side that is at a political disadvantage.

Episode 312: Nit-picking and Promo raises Episode 312: Nit-picking and Promo raises

I’m on a team of two.

My manager/teammate is young (under 30, less than 5 years total work experience), minimally experienced with anything other than writing code, and has an inflated self-assessment of their own coding skills.

They have a habit of either asking for (or simply changing on their own) every little thing to be their own way.

I’m feeling burnt out by the lack of control over my work and feeling like what I’m doing doesn’t make a difference..Where and how should you draw lines in order to balance writing good software with showing respect for your team members?

How do you deal with people who think their actions are justifiable because they are “improving” the code but really c…

Episode 311: (rerun of 207) Unclear career goals and garbage code Episode 311: (rerun of 207) Unclear career goals and garbage code

I’m a senior software engineer at a fast growing software startup.

In the past year and a half that I’ve been with the company I’ve gone through 5 reorgs and have had 5 different managers in 4 different teams.

Each time I sit down to do a 1 on 1 with a new manager they ask about my career goals and aspirations.

Initially, when I joined the company I was a weak and feeble non-senior software engineer.

I didn’t even know there were levels beyond senior software engineer for a long time.

Episode 310: Flip flop and architecture astronaut Episode 310: Flip flop and architecture astronaut

I joined a medium-size company, working with lots of fun new tech, but after 8 months I got the opportunity to get my dream job as a Software Engineer at a specific Big Tech company.

The problem is that after I started on my dream job, I “crashed” really hard.

After 4 months there, I was called by my previous fun job, and they offered me twice as much as I’m making at this Big Tech company to come back.

I’m very tempted, but I’m afraid of screwing my resume by leaving so early.

Should I toughen up and stick with my new fancy job, or go back and make more money and maybe be happier?

The team is myself, my boss (lead devops engineer), and a handful of pretty junior people.

My manager agreed that I would be promoted in the next month or so if I kept it up.

I now have a new manager and I feel like I have to start from scratch.

Not much has been translated over from the old manager to the new manager about my progress.

The new manager is now telling me there is no way they would hire me as a mid-level dev.

I’m currently working at a FAANG in Europe, and seriously underpaid.

I recently got an offer from a US startup (Series C funded) to work remotely.

Do you think 2.5 years in a FAANG provides enough of credibility to take care of both of these problems if things go south?

Any other factors I should consider when moving from FAANG to a remote startup job?

So I’ve been working at this big-tech company for around 4 years and working as a mid-level engineer.

Expectations at my current job are low.

I so desperately want to leave my current job, but I can’t prep for interviews and work on my startup at the same time.

I never interviewed since joining the bank over 5 years ago.

I am now contemplating taking a sabbatical for some months to reset myself, as the ordeal has had a big impact on me in many ways.

For the first time in my career, I’ve been given the opportunity to lead a project at work.

I never acted upon the desire to find another job because I have a great manager and skip level.

Recently, my manager and skip level both announced they’re leaving the company.

What steps should I take to not betray my teammates or myself, taking into account that my manager and skip level leave within a month and probably won’t be replaced by then?

He actually agreed with me and said he would go to HR to see what he could do.

A few days later, he came back to me and said they could do a market-rate adjustment of 20k per year.

So my boss, my boss’s boss, my boss’s boss’s boss and the HR rep that my boss was talking to are no longer here.

So my questions is, what’s the appropriate amount of time to wait before bringing this up to my new boss.

With so many of my colleagues now out of work , it seems a bit insensitive to be so concerned with a raise, but also, I like more money.

Hi, I have a question about how to handle being confused in certain team meetings.

Or should I address this completely differently, for example by requesting meeting agendas and preparing questions before the meetings?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to tackle this, because it’s a pain every time it happens.

I’ve been a Staff Software Engineer at my company for 1 1/2 years.

I’ve had 4 different bosses during the last year and our team has moved around a few times on the org chart.

Because my team is small and our product roadmap is pretty well defined, these tasks do not take 40 hours per week.

I’ve tried to improve the velocity of the team by doing some coding and triaging on bugs.

Should I enjoy my light load or should I be looking for other ways to add value?

Charles Clover discusses his latest book "Rewilding the Sea: How to Save Our Oceans", an essential and revelatory book from one of the leading figures in marine conservation, urging us to rethink our relationship with nature, save our oceans and save our own life support system. The world’s oceans have never faced more challenges—from ruthless overfishing, plastic pollution and acidification. And if that wasn’t enough, overfishing is accelerating climate change. The latest scientific research shows that trawling and dredging creates more CO2 than the aviation industry, and damages vast areas of our continental shelves, stopping them soaking up carbon. But change is achievable, and change is…

Market Fit
Market Fit Market Fit

But it’s often because not enough attention was paid to market fit.

Beyond a product’s usability, feasibility, and viability, product discovery work around value is intended to find this answer.

Determining market fit is about taking inputs from discovery work and applying them to what people are likely to truly do in real-life conditions.

Discovery work led by product managers should always cover product baselines:Are your customers who you think they are?

I encourage people to be creative and get out of the building to really understand market fit.

Some have a sizable war chest because they raised funds when it was easy, and were conservative about their spending.

My personal theory is that this belief contributes to many failed product companies.

In any case, when the money dries up, the product deficiencies become plain to see.

This means focusing on the core competencies of figuring out what precisely you need to build (product discovery), and getting that product to market (product delivery).

Once you have established product/market fit, then by all means invest in marketing, sales, and customer success.

To be very clear, I’m not suggesting that this dimension of excellence is critical for every product team and every product company.

Similarly, when a product leader reviews the work of a product team, beyond ensuring that the team understands and delivers on their key results, that leader sometimes also weighs in on this topic of product excellence.

Certainly there is sensitivity to how this opinion is shared with the product team.

My favorite place to capture this dimension of product excellence is in the product principles, which typically are developed alongside a strong and compelling product vision.

Yet in truth I have never had a good answer to the question of why there are still so many bad product companies?

My theory for this has mainly been that leaders at “the rest” have never worked at strong product companies, so they’ve never seen good.

“As an industry, we’re making progress on this front, with larger organizations bringing in formalized management training.

While first principles thinking can give startups an edge, creating manager training from scratch is often not a worthwhile endeavor.

A few of these topics may not sound like things you’ve covered in past lackluster management training sessions, but they’re key to laying the foundation for fast-growing startups.

[VLOG] The SYNERGY ❤️ Between Product Owner and Scrum Master
[VLOG] The SYNERGY ❤️ Between Product Owner and Scrum Master [VLOG] The SYNERGY ❤️ Between Product Owner and Scrum Master

I hope you had a great week this week before going for the weekend.

One of the question I often get is, "is it possible for one person to be both the Product Owner and the Scrum Master?".

The synergy created when the Product Owner and the Scrum Master are two different individuals and when both are awesome delivers lots of benefits to the company.

In this video I visualise the benefits of having awesome Product Owner and Scrum Master.

Hopefully you gain value out of it and can come up with list of action items to leverage the Product Owner and the Scrum Master in your company rather than putting unnecessary layers above them.

Reminder: as Product Owner you are accountable for maximizing value resulting from the work of the Scrum Team.

In order to maximize value, the Scrum Team needs specific Product Backlog management skills.

A Facilitator as an (Event) Value Maximiser
A Facilitator as an (Event) Value Maximiser A Facilitator as an (Event) Value Maximiser

Throughout this blog, I use a variety of terms such as meeting, event, and workshop ostensibly as synonyms.

Maybe, but if a Product Owner is the (product) value maximiser, then consider the facilitator to be the (event) value maximiser.

Participation is key for event facilitation because it’s the diversity of voices and opinions that holds value in decision-making.

Top tip: start each event by saying ‘This event will be successful if we…’ – create a measurable Sprint Goal, forecast our three-monthly plan, answer this question etc.

Due to the fact that a facilitator can absolutely still be a participant in the event, I want to revisit a question I asked earlier – is the facilitator always th…

Scrum zeichnet mehr die Einstellung eines Teams aus als einen Satz fester Regeln, die das Scrum Team befolgen muss.

Here are five reasons your stakeholders are not participating in sprint reviews with remedies.

You might have scheduled Sprint Review at the wrong timeREASON: Apathetic scheduling is one of the primary reasons for the absence of stakeholders in sprint reviews.

In my experience, Friday’s Sprint Reviews had almost 50% of the stakeholders not turning up.

Your Sprint Review is just a demoREASON: Another reason a stakeholder might skip your sprint review could be that you’re unable to grasp their interest.

What are Epics and Features? What are Epics and Features?

Each item on the Product Backlog is a to-do item, and each to-do item is called a Product Backlog item (PBI).

Epics and features are complementary Scrum practices that some Product Owners use to organize their Product Backlog.

Epics and features are a complementary, optional practice Product Owners can use to organize the team’s Product Backlog.

(Note that some digital Product Backlog tools place features in higher-ordered folders with epics inside them.

Potential conflict of interests, Scrum Master role might not be fully aligned with other roles of the LM.

Potential conflict of interests; which is the true team for the LM – “Scrum” team or line team?
