StackOverflow Turns Your Forum Activity Into a Resume

first_imgmarshall kirkpatrick A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#web Related Posts center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Fast-growing technical forum StackOverflow is launching a new service today called Careers 2.0, where programmers can build a resume out of the technical questions and answers they’ve contributed to the StackOverflow site. The service was unveiled at the Launch conference today in San Francisco.It’s a great example of building value on top of passively collected data from another kind of activity. Millions of programmers visit and participate in StackOverflow forums to find and share free, community-vetted discussions about their technical challenges. Now the site will help them transform that activity into a resume that employers can find and evaluate. It’s free for job seekers; the cost for employers is $500 for one week of access or $5k for one year subscription, with a money back guarantee if an employer doesn’t find anyone to hire.From New York based StackOverflow to the smaller but more hyped Quora to Facebook Connect and the soon-to-launch Locker Project, there are all kinds of companies working to create value on top of what’s called exhaust data. That term doesn’t feel like it does justice to peoples’ activities on Stack Overflow, but it does seem technically applicable.When it comes to creating value, though, connecting employers with highly qualified technical candidates is one of the clearest examples of value this paradigm has created to date, outside of targeted advertising.Stack Overflow is building out a network of community Q&A sites on a wide variety of topics. It’s not hard to imagine this same type of system being offered for types of work other than computer programming.Also at Launch and addressing the need of finding qualified candidates, in this case consumer service providers, is another startup called Thumbtack. Presumably we’ll see many more services like these; as a growing number of people and businesses become quantified, the days of making business decisions on a short list of contrived recommendations and the pedigree of a resume will soon be surpassed.last_img read more

Liberal national security bill to boost federal border agency accountability

first_imgOTTAWA – The Liberal government plans to introduce wide-ranging national security legislation next week that will include more robust oversight of Canada’s border agency.In addition to new eyes looking over the shoulder of the Canada Border Services Agency, the package will propose changes to ensure existing security watchdogs can exchange information and collaborate more easily on reviews, The Canadian Press has learned.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has consistently said his government has a responsibility to give security agencies the tools they need to keep Canadians safe, while preserving the rights and freedoms people cherish.In that vein, the extensive set of measures will also follow through on Liberal promises during the last election to deal with “problematic elements” of omnibus security legislation ushered in by the previous Conservative government after a gunman stormed Parliament Hill.The Conservatives created a new offence of promoting the commission of terrorist offences and broadened the government’s no-fly list powers.They also gave the Canadian Security Intelligence Service explicit authority to derail terrorist threats, not just gather information about them. However, many Canadians have expressed concerns that such disruption activities could violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.The Trudeau government has committed to ensuring all CSIS warrants respect the charter, to preserving legitimate protest and advocacy, and to defining terrorist propaganda more clearly.It has also pledged that appeals by Canadians on the no-fly list will be subject to mandatory review.Tens of thousands of people took part in the government’s national security consultation and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale recently said there was “a tremendous amount of consensus” on the platform promises.The Liberals have already taken legislative steps to fulfil one of those commitments — creation of a special committee of parliamentarians to scrutinize security and intelligence activities, including those of the border services agency.However, civil libertarians, refugee lawyers and committees of both the House of Commons and Senate have called in recent years to do more by instituting some form of independent monitoring of the border agency.The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association issued a report this week outlining its proposals for civilian oversight and review of the agency.Border officers can stop travellers for questioning, take blood and breath samples, and search, detain and arrest citizens and non-citizens without a warrant. The border agency’s role in immigration detention has come under scrutiny following in-custody deaths.But unlike the RCMP and CSIS, the border agency is not overseen by a dedicated review or complaints body.Another nagging issue has long been the inability of existing watchdogs to share information about security-related complaints and cases due to legal restrictions.It means watchdogs are often prevented from following the thread of investigations that involve several intelligence and police services, leaving complainants frustrated.Legislative measures to permit sharing and co-operation would address decade-old recommendations from the commission of inquiry that examined the overseas torture of Maher Arar, a Canadian telecommunications engineer who was imprisoned in Syria.The Liberal national security consultations revealed a strong desire to reduce the number of false positive matches with Canada’s no-fly list and to improve the appeal process for anyone placed on the list, says a government summary.A majority who took part in the consultations said the public safety minister should be required to decide within 90 days on any application from someone to have his or her name removed from the list.It is clear from the results the federal consultations that Canadians have significant concerns regarding privacy and government accountability with sensitive data, said David Christopher, a spokesman for OpenMedia, which works to keep the Internet surveillance-free.“We’ll be watching next week’s announcement very closely, and judging the government’s proposals against what Canadians said loud and clear during the consultation.”— Follow @JimBronskill on Twitterlast_img read more

How long should police officers abstain from pot Depends whom you ask

first_imgTORONTO – Twenty-eight days. That’s how long members of the RCMP and Toronto police have been ordered to abstain from smoking or vaping recreational pot before reporting for duty. Calgary police officers won’t be allowed to use cannabis at all while off the job.Such prohibitions have sparked a growing firestorm, with the national association representing front-line officers calling the policies “offensive” and the union for Toronto cops describing the ban as “ill-contrived” and “arbitrary.”But is demanding that Mounties and municipal police officers forego a soon-to-be legal substance for such a lengthy period justified, when there’s no similar policy governing alcohol or potentially mind-altering prescription medications?That depends on how much a person consumes and how often, said Dr. James MacKillop, co-director of the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research at McMaster University.“So if you smoke today, within a few days it will be entirely out of your system because a single instance may be longer-lasting than alcohol but it still nonetheless will be metabolized and will be excreted,” MacKillop said from Hamilton.“If a person is a regular, frequent user, then that window gets much longer because cannabis is what’s called lipophilic, which means it’s absorbed into the body’s fat cells and then it leeches back out from the fat tissue into the bloodstream. And that’s why it’s also detectable in urine,” he said.“So if a person’s a heavy user, it may indeed be detectable for up to a month.”MacKillop said a number of studies provide evidence of lingering effects of cannabis, including one that found reductions in cognitive performance in active pot users compared to non-users, which returned to normal levels with protracted abstinence.“It’s not clear that any of those chronic effects on cognition persist after a person stops, but a 28-day washout period would be expected to eliminate virtually all of the cognitive consequences,” he said.“That’s a high bar, but optimal performance from the police or the military or airline pilots or other people in highly safety-sensitive jobs is very desirable. So it’s hard for me to disagree with policies that prioritize safety.”However, Rielle Capler, a researcher with the B.C. Centre On Substance Use, considers such lengthy periods of pre-work abstinence unreasonable based on how long the active psychoactive component of cannabis and breakdown products known as metabolites can affect the brain.“While the metabolites might still be present in the urine or blood that long, there is no connection to actual impairment,” she said Friday from Vancouver.“Impairment with cannabis depends on the mode of use, how much you use and your tolerance,” said Capler, who specializes in cannabis policy. “If you’re inhaling it, the peak impairment is about one to two hours and the impairment dissipates after three to four hours.“If you’re ingesting it, then you might start to feel impairment after an hour or two. It might peak at three or four hours, and be in your system for six to eight hours in terms of it having an effect,” she added.“If you wanted to be super cautious and conservative, you could say no consumption eight hours before work.”Capler maintains the police forces are creating a prohibition for a legal substance without the backing of scientific evidence, and that they should carefully examine the research literature on marijuana-induced impairment and revamp their policies based on the findings.Despite recreational cannabis being previously illegal, many Canadians have been toking or vaping the drug, she said. “And that’s why we’re changing the laws to coincide more with reality and not criminalize people for something that is happening.“We don’t want anybody impaired on the job — that’s very important, and I think that’s always been important.“It doesn’t become more important after Oct. 17.”— Follow @SherylUbelacker on Twitter.last_img read more
