Science and expert opinion should be respected, "your own research" is usually worthless, Black Lives Matter, Taiwan is a country, Love is Love, and Trans Rights are Human Rights.

No nazis or tankies, thanks.

Hey now, misdirected anger is like 25% of all social media content. What would we possibly do without it?

It’s No Surprise That “Skills-Based” Hiring Has Not Worked (www-forbes-com.cdn.ampproject.org)

This article outlines an opinion that organizations either tried skills based hiring and reverted to degree required hiring because it was warranted, or they didn’t adapt their process in spite of executive vision....

How do you write this article and not once reference I/O Psychology or the literature that examines how well various tests predict job performance? (e.g. Schmidt and Hunter, 1998)

I swear this isn't witchcraft. You just analyze the job, determine the knowledge and skills that are important, required at entry, and can't be obtained in a 15 minute orientation, and then hire based on those things. It takes a few hours worth of meetings. I've done it dozens of times.

But really what all that boils down to is get someone knowledgeable about the role and have them write any questions and design the exercises. Don't let some dingleberry MBA ask people how to move Mt. Fuji or whatever dumb trendy thing they're teaching in business school these days.

The cool thing about it is that the core of it is really just one page.

There's a page in there with a list of types of tests and their respective r values, which is a number between zero and one that explains how well a given type of test predicts job performance based on this gigantic meta analysis the researchers ran. Zero means there's no relationship between the test and job performance and one means the test predicts job performance perfectly.

Generally you want something better than .3 for high stakes things like jobs. Education and experience sits at ... .11 or so. It's pretty bad. By contrast, skills tests do really well. Depending on the type they can go over .4. That's a pretty big benefit if you're hiring lots of people.

That said it can be very hard to convince people that "just having a conversation with someone" isn't all that predictive at scale. Industry calls that an "unstructured interview" and they're terrible vectors for unconscious or conscious bias. "Hey, you went to the same school as me..." and now that person is viewed favorably.

Seriously this stuff is WELL STUDIED but for some reason the MBA lizards never care. It's maddening.

How about suicide? Less fond of that one.

All it takes to get people to cheer on suicide via self-immolation is doing it for the right cause, I guess. Gross.

What are you using your life for?

This is where you start asking yourself if you're really a good person after all.

Someone in that org needs to be an adult and say no to pointless rebrands and brain dead consolidation. Literally nobody, even Google, is benefiting from this spastic behavior.

Nazis mingle openly at CPAC, spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories and finding allies (www.nbcnews.com)

At the Young Republican mixer Friday evening a group of Nazis, who openly identified as national socialists, mingled with mainstream conservative personalities, including some from Turning Point USA, and discussed race science and antisemitic conspiracy theories.

So there's definitely a Zionist wing of the party. What's gonna happen when they come into contact with the Nazi wing of the party?

Sure. But it's the dominant opinion in the GOP. It has to be; the majority of their policy positions are at odds with the academic community.

Their only response to that is to allege vague, unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about sweeping fraud and corruption. Of course fraud and corruption exist, but it's a matter of scale. The kind of conspiracy they're talking about would require absolute secrecy across millions of people all over the world. That simply does not happen.

This is one of the main reasons I left the party after 15+ years and being raised in it. It always bothered me that most of the smart people who'd done the hard work to understand their disciplines were not Republicans and it turns out there actually was a good reason for that.

That's a referral to a series of specialists and probably an MRI or two at minimum. Cancer is a deeply shitty way to die, go talk to your doctor ASAP.

In Cyberpunk 2077, Judy's icon is a ghost popping out of a clamshell. There's two jokes in there.

I played so many different SNES, Genesis, and PS1 games this way. My dad was my sane parent growing up, and every weekend I got to stay with him he did this with me. He'd pick me up from school, we'd score some movies and games, and have dinner. No fighting, no crazy outbursts. Just fun times and chill.

When I was younger he used to read me Hardy Boys mysteries at night. He was a great dad.

‘Just Like We Drew It Up’: What’s behind Joe Biden’s Super Bowl post? [12 Feb 2024 | Sarah Shamim | Al Jazeera] (www.aljazeera.com)

Yet, it was no meme page or troll account posting that image: It was posted on Biden’s own X page early on Monday. Coming against the backdrop of Israel’s brutal war on Gaza that has killed more than 28,000 people and that the US has backed, the image prompted particular criticism of Biden by some social media users....

What a strange way to tell us that your sense of ideological purity is worth more than people's actual lives.

Is this "company culture" in the room right now?

I had someone apply who'd never changed their alias in gmail from some edgy gamer shit to their actual name. Got a laugh out of it, told them to fix it so they didn't screw themselves over later on.

If this whole thing is about de-nazification then why all the talk about how Ukraine and Russia are historically intertwined?

Pff, whatever. Obvious land grab is obvious.

They also made bikes and motorcycles, which I think is kinda funny.

Funny thing is, there's literally a dungeon crawler themed cooking anime this season all about eating megadungeon monsters. It's called Delicious in Dungeon.

Much better for a science district IMO. Look at all those mountains

The GOP platform is now whatever a spoiled, narcissistic old fart is in his 70s is annoyed about today and I'm expected to just take these people seriously. I have to interact with them on a daily basis. There are tens of millions of the fuckers at least. How is this real life?

Jesus lived in a region conquered by the Roman Empire. Many of his fans at the time wanted him to be a conquering ruler and overthrow them. His answer in the text amounted to, "that's not why I'm here." Nominal Christians trying to install a Christian Government have missed the point of their own text so hard it's actually kinda funny.

Jesus: Share resources among those that need them, it's very hard for rich people to enter heaven.

His Followers: Temporarily embarrassed billionaires who idolize wealth and build literal golden statues of their favorite rich guy.

Jesus: Hangs out with tax collectors (i.e., agents of the Romans, who were not popular), hookers, low status foreigners, and people with terminal diseases.

His Followers: Ew, drag queens and brown people. Gross.

Jesus: Encourages non-violent responses to his own capture pending execution. Tells many parables about forgiveness and treating foreigners as neighbors.

His Followers: Immigrants are invading us! They terk our jerbs! BOMB IRAN!

Anyone seeing a pattern here? The reality is that Christianity isn't really a belief system for them, it's a cultural identity or tribal marker. You don't have to actually believe any of this shit or behave accordingly. All you have to do is say the right words and present the right image. Right wing Evangelical Christianity is a hollowed out husk; an empty aesthetic presenting as a belief system that promises that anything you do will be wiped away if you say the right words and give money to whatever charlatan is giving his Dollar General Ted Talk today.
