Westminster scandal: Report shows one in five people in Parliament have experienced sexual harassment Independent
What is known about insider trading tends to come from prosecutions. But these require fortuitous tip-offs and extensive, expensive investigations, involving the examination of complex evidence from phone calls, e-mails or informants wired with recorders. The resulting haze of numbers may befuddle a jury unless they are leavened with a few spicy details—exotic code words, say, or (even better) suitcases filled with cash.
The papers make imaginative use of pattern analysis from data to find that insider trading is probably pervasive. The approach reflects a new way of analysing conduct in the...Socialising losses

Conversable Economist: “What skills are most important for an employee to succeed at Google? Back in 2013, the company undertook Project Oxygen to answer that question. Cathy N. Davidson described the result in the Washington Post last month (“The surprising thing Google learned about its employees — and what it means for today’s students,” December 20, 2017). She writes:Narrative has become a maligned word of late, but we find ourselves today in a news environment where the narratives are established, and the days’ Trump coverage seems largely in service of reinforcing (for the left) or debunking (the right) that narrative. We say this, the president says that, we’re at an impasse. Donald Trump called developing nations a shithole, unless he didn’t, but he probably did. What do we learn? Probably that he’s a racist who lies, both of which we already knew. But that doesn’t stop us from repeating the exercise day after day; maybe this will be the thing that finally does him in.
“Sergey Brin and Larry Page, both brilliant computer scientists, founded their company on the conviction that only technologists can understand technology. Google originally set its hiring algorithms to sort for computer science students with top grades from elite science universities. In 2013, Google decided to test its hiring hypothesis by crunching every bit and byte of hiring, firing, and promotion data accumulated since the company’s incorporation in 1998. Project Oxygen shocked everyone by concluding that, among the eight most important qualities of Google’s top employees, STEM expertise comes in dead last. The seven top characteristics of success at Google are all soft skills: being a good coach; communicating and listening well; possessing insights into others (including others different values and points of view); having empathy toward and being supportive of one’s colleagues; being a good critical thinker and problem solver; and being able to make connections across complex ideas.”
WHAT DO THEY HOPE TO LEARN? In an unusual move, the UK Parliament (which has like many EU nations been flirting with “anti-fake news” laws), will be holding hearings in Washington DC on Thursday, 8th February 2018.
This is the first ever live broadcast, public hearing of a House of Commonsselect committee outside of the United Kingdom. It will be a formal proceeding of the UK Parliament. A transcript of the proceedings will be available later via the Official Report/Hansard.
I won’t be attending, though I hope to be able to catch the webcast. I’d encourage any reporters who cover media or lawyers or educators with an interest in the subject to attend and report back.
This story reminded me of stories over lunch at the parliamentary cafeteria with Arthur King and CoMar 3, 2013 - His death, at 72, would be unremarkable but for the fact he was the last person to see the heiress and anti-development campaigner, Juanita Nielsen, alive. That was at the Carousel nightclub in Kings Cross on July 4, 1975. ... One protester, Arthur King, was thrown in the boot of a car and kidnapped and held him for a couple of days in a motel somewhere on the South Coast.
