How GE Digital Tackled the Stateful / Stateless Problem for Industrial IoT
"As engineers (including those at the IETF) have come to realize, persistent data will always be a necessary resource for both server-side applications and client-side apps. And the need for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications to maintain a reliable, persistent network of connected sensors and apparati, makes a stable and self-contained network state data platform vitally necessary."

Hey everyone. I'm hosting Alison Head at D&amp;S on the 19th. Alison has done extensive research on how young adults find and use information. Let me know if you're interested in talking with her while she's here! Below is a bit more about her.
Alison Head Ph.D. is Project Information Literacy's Executive Director and Lead Researcher. She is also a Senior Researcher at the metaLAB (at) Harvard and a Visiting Research Scholar at Purdue University Libraries. In 2017, she was awarded the inaugural S. T. Lee Lectureship in Library Leadership and Innovation at Harvard Libraries.

Since 2008, 13,000 "early adults" have participated in PIL studies. The institutional sample for PIL studies has consisted of 82 public and private colleges and universities, community colleges located in the U.S. PIL has published nine open-access research reports as part of their ongoing study. Articles about PIL's work have also appeared in The Atlantic Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Education Week, Inside Higher Education, Library Journal, and The Seattle Times.

Finland schools: Subjects scrapped and replaced with 'topics' as country reforms its education system | The Independent
For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy. Only far eastern countries such as Singapore and China outperform the Nordic nation in the influential Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) rankings. Politicians and education experts from around the world – including the UK – have made pilgrimages to Helsinki in the hope of identifying and replicating the secret of its success.

The 2018 UCLA Activist-in-Residence Program - Institute on Inequality and Democracy at UCLA Luskin
The Institute on Inequality and Democracy is recruiting for its 2018 Activist-in-Residence program. The Institute piloted the program with the UCLA Asian American Studies Center earlier this year and welcomed two fantastic women as the inaugural program fellows. The part-time residency is meant to offer activists/artists/community organizers space for a “time-out.” We offer a stipend of $7500 and up to $2500 to support activist-inspired programs, events or research assistance, as well as an office, parking and access to UCLA’s library system. Resident activists are not obligated to teach, but we encourage student interaction to meet our goal of decolonizing the university. The deadline to apply is November 1, 2017.

Please feel free to share the attached announcement. I’m happy to speak with interested applicants. Full details, as well as a profile of the 2017 Activists-in-Residents, can be found on our website: <https://challengeinequality.luskin.ucla.edu/the-ucla-activist-in-residence-program/>
