Powerful Unwritten Standards Establish Expectations for the Profession
If unwritten standards are critical, why doesn’t the College document them too? That gets at what it means to be a self-regulating profession. 

A standard is a signpost, laying out the basis for practice. It describes a level of professional performance considered to be acceptable. 

These written standards are the minimum, reminds Anita Ashton, Director, Professional Conduct for the College. Moreover, they don’t originate with the College. They’re the profession’s standards, reflecting how physiotherapists practice. 

If the College didn’t exist, physiotherapists would still have to meet the inherent rules established over time. The College gathers these standards and holds members accountable. 

Standards aren’t meant to be how-to manuals. If they were, anyone could read instructions, and physiotherapists would be technicians says Ashton. 

Regarding unwritten standards, one case often cited involves this profession, Mathews v. Board of Directors of Physiotherapy (1986). The case found that unwritten standards are just as real, and that some actions that are considered misconduct don’t need to be written down. 

Written standards aren’t where a professional’s obligations end — it’s where they begin.

Improving Software Security through C Language Standards – NCC Group Research
Robert Seacord goes over his and the NCC Group's work on improving security standards via the C Standards Committee. Some interesting reference on ISO, ANSI, and how he thinks standards are the best long-term solution(rather than compiler-specific extensions)
Lobsters commenter notes that he offers a safe-C training course, but it's intermediate-to-advanced and is quite expensive(but extensive and plenty of patterns and self-study)

O.L.D. (Over-Locknut Dimension)
O.L.D. stands for Over-Locknut Dimension. This is the width of the hub measured from outside of locknut to outside of locknut. It is not to be confused with the axle length, as the axle extends into or beyond the frame dropouts. The O.L.D. needs to match the available space in the frame between the fork or frame tips. Rear hubs vary in width (but most new ones are 130mm for road or 135mm for mountain). The hub width (over-locknut dimension) needs to match the space between the rear wheel dropouts in the frame in order for things to line up as they should.

Standard Identifier Source Codes: Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes (Network Development and MARC Standards Office, Library of Congress)
Standard Identifier Sources lists standard number or code systems and assigns a code to each database or publication that defines or contains the identifiers. The purpose of these source codes is to enable the type of standard numbers or codes in metadata records to be indicated by a code. For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes.

Brexit: Will it be a Canadian or an Australian ending? - BBC News
Let's be clear about one thing. There is no Australian free trade deal with the EU. Negotiations started on one last year, and at the moment the two sides trade under a decade old much looser partnership while trying to thrash through issues from fuel emissions to what producers on opposite sides of the world should be allowed to call their cheese.

And for Number 10, this sudden reference to an "Australian deal" seems to be an effort to rebrand what the government's written statement later said was a relationship "based simply on the Withdrawal Agreement deal agreed in October 2019, including the Protocol in Ireland/Northern Ireland".

In other words, if there isn't a comprehensive trade deal by the end of the year, the UK would move to a situation trading with the EU on World Trade Organisation terms. This would mean taxes on exports and customs checks which, if it came to pass, could be massively disruptive for businesses and very costly for the economy.

An "Australia-style deal" sounds a lot less scary than the "no deal" circumstance that politicians have talked about for so long. And yes, the issues on paying the EU bill, citizens' rights and the Irish border were all settled in the last few years and the overall divorce deal agreed before our departure last week.

But when it comes to the trade arrangements, it is not the case that as one government official tried to suggest "no deal is not a concept" .
