What Happens When You Create A Flexbox Flex Container?
By Rachel Andrew.
"In my ideal world, CSS Grid and Flexbox would have arrived together,
fully formed to make up a layout system for the web. Instead, however,
we got Flexbox first and, due to it being better at creating grid-type layouts
than floats, we ended up with a lot of Flexbox-based grid systems.
In fact, many of the places where people find Flexbox difficult or confusing
are really due to this attempt to make it a method for grid layout."

Securing Web Sites Made Them Less Accessible
By Eric A. Meyer.
"…The drive to force every site on the web to HTTPS
has pushed the web further away from the next billion users-not to mention
a whole lot of the previous half-billion…I saw, first-hand, the negative
externality that was pushed onto people far, far away from our data
centers and our thoughts." 
https://meyerweb.com/eric/thoughts/2018/08/07/securing-sites-made-them-less-accessible/

The Bullshit Web
By Nick Heer.
"…An honest web is one in which the overwhelming majority of the code and
assets downloaded to a user's computer are used in a page's visual presentation,
with nearly all the remainder used to define the semantic structure and associated
metadata on the page. Bullshit - in the form of CPU-sucking surveillance,
 unnecessarily-interruptive elements, and behaviours that nobody responsible
for a website would themselves find appealing as a visitor - is unwelcome and
intolerable…"

Removing Site Tracking
By Charlie Owen.
"In truth, Google Analytics has always been a bit of a childish self-validation crutch.
'Look how many visits I'm getting ma!' It doesn't really serve a purpose for me.
I design my site for everybody, so I don't need to track where people are coming from.
I design my site for every device, so I don't need to track OS and Browser.
I have zero interest in the awfully revealing demographic data that GA exposes.
I really have no need to see real-time data on visitors. It's all really for nothing…"

+12: USABILITY.

Self-Service UX: 'Cards' Dashboards Must Be Highly Consistent and Appropriately Styled
By Edward Scott.
"Cards can be effective at improving the scannability of the dashboard,
as users should be able to quickly find the account feature they're looking
for by scanning card headers or prominent card content (e.g., 'Your Lists',
'Purchase History', etc.). During testing, however, 'Cards' dashboards
performed poorly when card content wasn't implemented
 with a very high level of consistency."
https://baymard.com/blog/cards-dashboard-layout

Keeping Digital Teams Happy Versus Keeping Customers Happy
By Gerry McGovern.
"…If you really want to deliver excellent customer experience, then measure
use and usefulness. Measure how easy it is for customers to find and use the
things they want to find and use."

The Friction of Web Standards (Video)
By Eric A. Meyer.
"In March 2017, four major browsers shipped stable, consistent CSS Grid implementations in the span

And why does it take so darned long to ship new features after implementation is begun, like the literal
years it took to ship Grid? In this talk, Eric will focus on one of the biggest and least appreciated reasons:
the growing friction of specification interaction. He'll not only explore some of the challenges specification
authors and implementors face, but also how we all can help overcome that friction and keep the web interoperable…"

Better Research, Better Design, Better Results
By Sam Wright and James Macnamara.
"Most web professionals like to see their influence felt in web design
projects as early as possible, in order to make sure what they have to
say gets heard. Yet often SEOs and content marketers are asked to step

there are very real benefits, ranging from better UX to lower costs to
using SEO-focused data such as keyword research as a springboard for
design and development, rather than having to turn to it further down

to-FAQs, Lisa Wright is on a mission to banish them forever, or at the
very least make them more effective if you have to include them."

Organizing Your Social Sciences Research Paper: Evaluating Sources

The purpose of this guide is to provide advice on how to develop and organize a research paper in the social sciences.

Importance of Evaluating Sources

Evaluating the authority, usefulness, and reliability of resources is a crucial step in developing a literature review that effectively covers pertinent research as well as demonstrates to the reader that you know what you're talking about. The process of evaluating scholarly materials also enhances your general skills and ability to:

    1. Seek out alternative points of view and differing perspectives,
    2. Identify possible bias in the work of others,
    3. Distinguish between fact, fiction, and opinion,
    4. Develop and strengthen your ability to distinguish between relevant and irrelevant content,
    5. Draw cogent, well thought out conclusions, and
    6. Synthesize information, extracting meaning through a deliberate process of interpretation and analysis.

    How to Write the Methods Section of a Research Paper. - NCBI

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15447808

    The methods section of a research paper provides
    the information by which a study's validity is judged.
    Therefore, it requires a clear and precise description
    of how an experiment was done, and the rationale for
    why specific experimental procedures were chosen.
    The methods section should describe what was done
    to answer the research question, describe how it was
    done, justify the experimental design, and explain how
    the results were analyzed. Scientific writing is direct
    and orderly. Therefore, the methods section structure
    should: describe the materials used in the study, explain
    how the materials were prepared for the study, describe
    the research protocol, explain how measurements were
    made and what calculations were performed, and state
    which statistical tests were done to analyze the data.
    Once all elements of the methods section are written,
    subsequent drafts should focus on how to present those
    elements as clearly and logically as possibly.
    The description of preparations, measurements, and the
    protocol should be organized chronologically. For clarity,
    when a large amount of detail must be presented, information
    should be presented in sub-sections according to topic.
    Material in each section should be organized by topic from
    most to least important.

    EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICE

    Amber Huett and David MacMillan

    June 2011

    UNA Center for Writing Excellence

     

    Evidence Based Practice in nursing focuses on the idea that medical 
    practices ought to be developed and adapted based on an ongoing 
    cycle of evidence, theory, and research. As changes in practice prompt 
    further research, the theories developed from that research serve as 
    evidence to 
    produce more changes in practice. The implementation 
    of Evidence 
    Based Practice in nursing, also called Systematic Review, 
    requires the review of such research with the intention of targeting and 
    improving inadequate practice.

     

    The systematic review of outside research attempts to make sense of the 
    large body of information available in order to implement change effectively. 
    The available research may be qualitative, quantitative, or evidence based. 
    How can this research be applied on an individual basis to improve patient 
    care?

     

    Evidence Based Practice involves the following six steps:

     

    Assess the need for change

     

    Locate the best evidence

     

    Synthesize evidence

     

    Design the change

     

    Implement and evaluate

     

    Integrate and maintain changes

    Abstract Transparency in research methods and results is now widely seen as an imperative if the healthcare and research enterprise is to be truly successful. A patient-centred focus in the conduct of clinical care includes its safety, effectiveness, efficiency, equity, and timeliness. Innovative ways are being developed to understand, disseminate, and rapidly apply the best evidence to care delivery. In this article, we demonstrate the use of simple and appropriate statistics in research reports that should help healthcare providers apply knowledge to practice by making it easier for them to understand clinical medicine.

    Abstract The quality of a research paper depends primarily on the quality of the research study it reports. However, there is also much that authors can do to maximise the clarity and usefulness of their papers. Journals' instructions for authors often focus on the format, style, and length of articles but do not always emphasise the need to clearly explain the work's science and ethics: so this review reminds researchers that transparency is important too. The research question should be stated clearly, along with an explanation of where it came from and why it is important. The study methods must be reported fully and, where appropriate, in line with an evidence based reporting guideline such as the CONSORT statement for randomised controlled trials. If the study was a trial the paper should state where and when the study was registered and state its registration identifier. Finally, any relevant conflicts of interest should be declared.

    Proper citation is an important component of any APA Style paper. 
    However, many readers believe certain sources aren’t allowed in 
    APA Style, and they write to us looking for a definitive list of what is 
    off limits. Two of the most common questions are about whether it’s 
    okay to cite websites and whether sources have to have been 
    published within a certain time frame to be cited, such as the last 
    5 or 10 years.

    Search All EPC Reports

    This search provides complete titles of released evidence reports, 
    comparative effectiveness reviews, technical briefs, Technology

    Force evidence syntheses.

    Overview

    Under the Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPC) Program of 
    the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 5-year contracts 
    are awarded to institutions in the United States and Canada to 
    serve as EPCs. The EPCs review all relevant scientific literature on 
    a wide spectrum of clinical and health services topics to produce 
    various types of evidence reports. These reports may be used for 
    informing and developing coverage decisions, quality measures, 
    educational materials and tools, clinical practice guidelines, and 
    research agendas. The EPCs also conduct research on methodology 
    of evidence synthesis.

    Participating EPCs

    The following list provides contact information and Web sites 
    where available for the 13 Evidence-based Practice Centers 
    currently funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and 
    Quality.
