He asked for records that “describe, list or catalog the databases maintained by” MassIT, which administers them on behalf of numerous state agencies. “To me, it’s fascinating that there is all this government data that is being collected, and we don’t know what it is, what type of records different agencies keep, and as a reporter you can find all kinds of great stories in a single database alone,” Haddadin explains

Some fear that robots and AI will steal our jobs.

They probably will (in the near-term, at least half of them).

If that happens, what will we do for a living? How will we earn money?

In this blog I’ll be discussing one of the most important proposed solutions to job loss due to automation -- the notion of “Universal Basic Income” (sometimes called guaranteed minimum income).

In specific, I want to discuss:

Predictions on job loss
What is Universal Basic Income? Who is experimenting with it?
Does UBI work? What are the implications?

Let’s dive in.

The Code for America team’s plan had always been to leave the scarier stuff off the website — questions like, “Have you ever traded food stamps for explosives?” or “Have you ever committed a felony?” Those questions could be answered during the live interview. The key was to settle on how much information to ask for at the start. Require too much, and users would be put off and give up; too little, and the eligibility workers, who preferred more details rather than fewer, would complain. In the end, the team settled on a compromise. After the user submitted a name and an address, two choices would present themselves: to continue filling out the rest of the application or to “Stop working and submit application now.” Clicking the second option would lead to another page and the warning: “Are you sure you want to submit right now? Since we only know your name and address, it will be hard to process your application. Instead of finishing it on the phone, we will have to send you paperwork

As much as we are attracted to the new, we simultaneously cling to the familiar. This tension means that some redesigns — particularly in the realm of graphic design — can inspire surprisingly visceral public backlash. Earlier this year, for instance, Instagram updated its logo and app icon, simplifying the design and making it more colorful. The chorus of online moaning and mockery that followed grew so loud that it was actually reported on by The Times, which called it a “freak out.” Instagram didn’t budge, but a similar backlash in 2010 caused the Gap to retract plans for a new logo it had floated online. The University of California pulled back key elements of a redesign that met with a similarly furious response.

Probably the most notorious and consequential example involved Tropicana. In 2009, the brand rolled out a new look that included a full redesign of its familiar packaging and visual identity, dropping its orange-with-a-straw-in it logo — corny, perhaps, but very familiar

Drupal 8's configuration system handles configuration in a unified manner. By default, Drupal stores configuration data in the database, but it can be exported to YAML files, allowing the configuration to be managed by version control. There are cases however when configuration values need to be overridden for specific purposes. Drupal 7 had the global $conf variable that was usually populated in settings.php with conditional override values for configuration. A big drawback of that system was that the overrides crept into actual configuration. When a configuration form that contained overridden values was saved, the conditional override got into the actual configuration storage.

Drupal 8 introduces a configuration override system that maintains these overrides as temporary layers on top of the standard configuration values, does not use them for configuration forms and can even store them possibly with the other configuration files for staging and version control support (in case of

You'll note there are some wildcards there. We're ignoring all contact message fields and forms as well as any form or view display configuration. Additionally we're ignoring Workbench Email templates and the system site settings.

Rabbit Hole is a module that adds the ability to control what should happen when an entity is being viewed at its own page.

Perhaps you have a content type that never should be displayed on its own page, like an image content type that's displayed in a carousel. Rabbit Hole can prevent this node from being accessible on its own page, through node/xxx.

This works by providing multiple options to control what should happen when the entity is being viewed at its own page. You have the ability to

Deliver an access denied page.
Deliver a page not found page.
Issue a page redirect to any path or external url.
Or simply display the entity (regular behavior).

This is configurable per bundle and per entity. There is also a permission that lets certain roles override Rabbit Hole completely.
