Help – in Europeanese

April 2nd, 2009 by Graham Attwell

It has been a hectic two weeks. I have lots of updates for this site in progress. One thing I have been working on is bids for the EU Lifelong Learning programme. And for this round of funding calls they issued an electronic form programmed for the Adobe 9 reader. Full marks for trying. But of course there were bugs. Quite a few. A friend of mine contacted the help line over one of the bugs he was encountering. And this in the wonderful reply he received.

“Where there is only 1 partner recorded for the affected workpackage (Part F.3) you will need to add a second partner row, enter the desired lead partner number in that second row and then delete the first row (the original lead partner). You should then save the form, close and re-open it. This will reinstate the Lead partner header that was lost when you deleted the original lead partner.

If you already have more than 1 partner recorded in the affected workpackage (part F.3), then add the partner you want to be the lead partner as a new row (if they’ve not already been added * ).
Then delete the partners above the new row STARTING WITH the original lead partner.
Once you have deleted these partners you will be left with your new lead partner at the top of the list.
Save, close and re-open the form to reinstate the header.
Re-enter the deleted partners as required.

(* If the new lead partner is already in the list then you just need to delete the partners above it, but still starting with the original lead partner. And you will still need to save, close and re-open the form to re-instate the header.)”

Got it now!

    Racial bias in algorithms

    From the UK Open Data Institute’s Week in Data newsletter

    This week, Twitter apologised for racial bias within its image-cropping algorithm. The feature is designed to automatically crop images to highlight focal points – including faces. But, Twitter users discovered that, in practice, white faces were focused on, and black faces were cropped out. And, Twitter isn’t the only platform struggling with its algorithm – YouTube has also announced plans to bring back higher levels of human moderation for removing content, after its AI-centred approach resulted in over-censorship, with videos being removed at far higher rates than with human moderators.

    Gap between rich and poor university students widest for 12 years

    Via The Canary.

    The gap between poor students and their more affluent peers attending university has widened to its largest point for 12 years, according to data published by the Department for Education (DfE).

    Better-off pupils are significantly more likely to go to university than their more disadvantaged peers. And the gap between the two groups – 18.8 percentage points – is the widest it’s been since 2006/07.

    The latest statistics show that 26.3% of pupils eligible for FSMs went on to university in 2018/19, compared with 45.1% of those who did not receive free meals. Only 12.7% of white British males who were eligible for FSMs went to university by the age of 19. The progression rate has fallen slightly for the first time since 2011/12, according to the DfE analysis.
