For those who haven't seen / done anything like this before, you just take a straightforward survey and ask very similar questions in the same order to the participant, their peers, and the teacher/trainer.

e.g. "I played a full role in the training session"

Strongly agree
Strongly disagree

N.B. I've seen problems with gender bias around 'confidence' questions so probably avoid those if using this approach.

Couldn't find a version of this pretty standard triangulation of types of assessment for a thing I'm working on, so just putting it out into the ether...

Despite being perennially stuck in Division 4 of Seasons in FIFA 20 (I'll be upgrading next week!) I do occasionally score some cracking goals.

Diogenes is one of my heroes:

"He used his simple lifestyle and behaviour to criticize the social values and institutions of what he saw as a corrupt, confused society. He had a reputation for sleeping and eating wherever he chose in a highly non-traditional fashion, and took to toughening himself against nature. He declared himself a cosmopolitan and a citizen of the world rather than claiming allegiance to just one place."

"The historic origin of sesame was favored by its ability to grow in areas that do not support the growth of other crops. It is also a robust crop that needs little farming support—it grows in drought conditions, in high heat, with residual moisture in soil after monsoons are gone or even when rains fail or when rains are excessive. It was a crop that could be grown by subsistence farmers at the edge of deserts, where no other crops grow. Sesame has been called a survivor crop." (Wikipedia)

Whilst entering the UK, the husband of a couple got detained and taken by the police, the wife is distraught and doesn't know what to do. I'm travelling with her now and supporting with WiFi and money and whatever else I can. I'm wondering if anybody can share some useful resources concerning the legal support part of it?

Every night before bed, repeat this to yourself in the mirror to remind you of all your daily accomplishments

Just realised it's three years since I decided to stop eating meat. The very last I had was Christmas Day 2017 because my wife says she wasn't cooking specially for me(!)

Just less than a year ago, our 13 year-old son decided to join me, and apart from a couple of burgers, has stuck to it. I'm impressed.

I'll be doing consultancy through Dynamic Skillset going forwards. Just made some small tweaks to the site!

"These machines are the first general purpose computers ever where you have to make an exclusive choice: you can have a fast and efficient machine, or you can have a private one... Short of using an external network filtering device like a travel/vpn router that you can totally control, there will be no way to boot any OS on the new Apple Silicon macs that won’t phone home, and you can’t modify the OS to prevent this."
