Hard to believe, but with the House adjourned until next week, the shutdown will almost certainly extend into a second month. Here’s a recap thread as Union Steward of NHC of what we have lost so far, and what else is on the chopping block:
The National #AMS2019 conference has come and gone. All the potential scientific gains, interactions, new ideas- not this year. I probably regret losing the interactions with the hundreds of student attendees the most- a real missed chance for future inspiration and talent.
The first week of the @FEMA #hurricane preparedness classes is cancelled. The next one is likely to be postponed as well. This class is for decision makers who usually don’t know a lot of meteorology to help them understand what NHC/NWS products can and can’t do for them..

.@CommDocPA's PhD is in human communication. She works with the @ametsoc about a need for young scientists (or all scientists) to share technical information in a way that others understand & can act on. #AMS2019 #BECP2019
The second most feared thing for Americans is dying. The most feared thing is speaking in public. #AMS2019 #BECP2019
This fear is called communication apprehension. Everyone has it to some extent and it can take on many forms. Fear of speaking in front of groups, or fear of a group dynamic at a party. #AMS2019 #BECP2019

@KevinRPetty @BrianSmoliak .@KevinRPetty: Need to have open dialogue to discuss experiences that minorities have had. Build groups with diversity where people are comfortable in exchanging experiences & ideas.

"As a student I was often the only female on an oceanographic expedition." #AMS2019 #BECP2019
.@Marcia4Science: I was a unicorn. They didn't know how to deal with me. So they sent me to Navy Seal Team school on Coronado Island & went through explosives training school. Graduated 1st in my class of Seals. No one messed with me after that.
