In my 1st tweetorial, I’m happy to share our preprint—my first, first author manuscript! We used @10xGenomics single-nucleus RNA-seq in a mouse model of electroconvulsive seizures (ECS) to assess activity-regulated gene expression in hippocampal #neurons.…
Activity-regulated gene expression patterns in the #hippocampus regulate #plasticity, #learning, and #memory, and are linked to risk and treatment response for neuropsychiatric disorders. However, the cell type-specificity of these patterns is still not well characterized.
We sequenced a bunch of neuronal nuclei (15,990) from mouse hippocampus and used graph-based clustering and a priori marker genes to annotate these nuclei across all major hippocampal subregions and neuron types in both of our experimental conditions (Sham and ECS). Image

Von der Öffentlichkeit weitgehend unbemerkt soll morgen das Freihandelsabkommen #CETA im Bundestag ratifiziert werden.

Ein kurzer #Thread, warum das Abkommen noch immer skandalös ist und über eine wundersame Meinungsänderung von Robert #Habeck. 1/x
1. Zum einen droht mit #CETA das Vorsorgeprinzip unserer Gesundheit außer Kraft gesetzt zu werden. Bisher sind in Europa Medikamente und Chemikalien verboten, wenn Gesundheitsrisiken nicht klar ausgeschlossen sind. In Kanada gilt dieses Prinzip nicht. Potenziell gefährliche 2/x
Produkte könnten also den europäischen Markt fluten.

2. Die meisten Firmen aus den USA haben Niederlassungen in Kanada. #CETA ist also #TTIP durch die Hintertür.

3. #CETA enthält - wie viele andere Freihandelsabkommen umfassende Konzernklagerechte. Was technisch klingt, 3/x

The Dutch government 🇳🇱 has released its assessment regarding the modernization of the Energy Charter Treaty and why and how it wants to #ExitECT

The result achieved is insufficiently ambitious and not in line with 🇳🇱🇪🇺 #climate targets. 🧵👇…
Key points decisive for 🇳🇱 to #ExitECT:
1⃣ Despite flexibility mechanism and carve-outs for 🇪🇺, ECT remains an organization where #FossilFuel protection outside 🇪🇺 remains possible.
2⃣ No reference to future Multilateral Investment Court
3⃣ No strong sustainability obligations
Subsequently, 🇳🇱 will:
➡️abstain from voting during the Energy Charter Conference on 22 Nov so not to block modernization for others.
➡️ not initiate ratification procedure and not submit ECT amendments to parliament for approval
➡️ object provisional application

🧵 on the next steps following the historic announcement of @EmmanuelMacron on the withdrawal of 🇫🇷 from the Energy Charter Treaty #ECT
There 4 distinct steps to make today’s French decision effective

Step 1: A qualified majority vote (55% of MSs representing 66% of EU population) is needed to withdraw the EU from the #ECT
This vote should occur before 22/11, the day of the Energy Charter Conference (highest body of the #ECT) meeting where approval or disapproval of the conclusions of the négociations will take place

‼️Breaking ‼️

The French High Council for Climate @hc_climat released its assessment of the so-called agreement in principle on the modernization of the ecocide Energy Charter Treaty #ECT
According to @hc_climat
1- The timeline for the phase out of protection of foreign investment in fossil fuels proposed by the EU does not match with the timeline for thé decarbonisation of 🇫🇷
2-The proposed text for modernisation is not compatible with #ParisAgreement
3-The proposed text for modernization does not fully eliminate the risk of new #isds claims related to #FossilFuels
4-A withdrawal from the #ECT is the only possible option to implement #ParisAgreement

Voorkom miljardenclaims van biomassa-centrales.
Wij roepen het kabinet @MinPres @RobJetten @LSchreinemacher op: Stap uit het Energiehandvestverdrag #ECT!
Hieronder een draadje 🧵
Op basis van het #ECT kunnen fossiele-energiebedrijven in geheime procedures voor internationale arbitragehoven miljardenclaims tegen overheden indienen wanneer zij klimaatmaatregelen nemen die hun fossiele winsten bedreigen.
Zo werd Italië aug jl. veroordeeld tot het betalen van €240 miljoen aan @Rockhopper voor het niet langer mogen boren naar olie & gas voor de Italiaanse kust. Dikke winst voor @rockhopper: schadevergoeding was 8 keer zo hoog als hun totale investeringen.…

This year I am exploring the things I wish every new #historyteacher knew in their first years .…

In part 4 I want to talk about developing knowledge in history classrooms - something which has been a hot topic for a while. #PGCE #ECF
The ECF and CCF have quite a lot to say about how pupils learn. However much of this stops at the point of considering knowledge transfer and the role of memory. If you are not aware of these basics however it’s worth reading @mfordhamhistory in @histassoc TH166 ImageImage
Fordham is a good starting point for moving us from some generic principles about learning to something more specific about history.

Do a little task now: what have you seen great history teachers do when they develop new knowledge in class? Image

Politico Pro Europe @POLITICOEurope published the full text of the agreement in principle on the modernisation of the #EnergyCharterTreaty #ECT…
Most of changes already communicated by ECT press release of June 2022 (see…) but some points worth noting:
I) flexibility mechanism for the fossil fuel carve out included in Annex NI, thus doesn't require follow path amendment procedure. Annex can be changed by ECT Conference decision, but for certain parts of annex NI a separate procedure for entry into force apparently foreseen 2/8

For all the new ECTS out there:
Advice I wish I knew as a first year ECT, after my first year teaching:
A thread…
#ect #edutwitter #mfltwitterati #ect22 #nqt
Disclaimer: I am definitely not a pro but I have been through quite a journey during my first year teaching and these are the things that turned it around for me and allowed me to end the year with a better work life balance and strong love for the profession
1. OBSERVE -as many different teachers as you can, as often as you can. Just because you aren’t a trainee anymore doesn’t mean you can’t set observations up yourself - this was hands down what had the most positive impact on my teaching this year and helped with specific problems

Going into my 20th year of teaching next week! Here are my top #ECT tips for meeting the needs of #SEND students.

Starting with the obvious, find out everything you can about them. Read their pupil profiles and/or EHCPs, highlighting the key info./1
If you are a primary teacher of a student with an EHCP, find time to phone parents/carers at the start of term. This could be the day before school starts to introduce yourself, or a couple of days in to ask how they’re settling in. /2
Talk to the teacher(s) they had last year. Find out what worked and what didn’t in terms of supporting them. Ask the SENCO for a 10-minute chat: what can you tell me about ______? Look at their work if possible, to get a sense of strengths and challenges. /3

BREAKING: London-based fossil fuel company Ascent Resources — who are suing the Slovenian govt over its decision to ban fracking — has upped its demands from €120 million to over HALF A BILLION EUROS.

🧵What does €500 million mean to people in Slovenia?
According to our allies @Umanotera, €500 million could pay for:

🍎 Free school meals for Slovenian primary school children for 6 years!
🔥Slovenia's programme to support vulnerable people with their energy bills — 23 times over.
Instead, thanks to the Energy Charter Treaty (#ECT), if Ascent win that money will go to its shareholders.

Corporate Courts (ISDS), embedded in the ECT, enable corporations to sue governments over climate action — draining public finances and undermining public services. 3/4

The fossil fuel industry has infiltrated all steps of democratic will formation & decision making in order to protect business as usual, locking us in on the worst case climate scenario.

Yet, @Shell's CEO believes that "the public" will magically prevent a 3°C world.
I've heard this illusion many times that the public as an entity is somewhat isolated from interventions to protect fossil interests. And that it therefore will come around the corner at some point. This is often coupled with misanthropic cliches about humans being essentially
dumb, greedy and ultimately deserving catastrophe as we haven't stopped it up until this point. So it might be helpful to be very clear about all the ways the fossil fuel industry has tried to control "the public" via the political discourse, lawmaking procedures and courts.

"Put it simple, this treaty is a major threat to the EU energy sovereignty, #GreenDeal, and #ClimateJustice goals. This timely comic is of high importance to ensure the French Presidency will end the participation of EU countries to this ecocide treaty.” @ysaheb #ExitECT #NoECT Image
"The Energy Charter Treaty is the arguably the largest and most arcane obstacle to climate action. This comic will help you figure out what is going on through thoroughly researched cases. Read, share and convince your politicians to stop the ECT!" @JKSteinberger #ExitECT Image

Aprovechando que se ha reabierto el debate sobre la necesidad de un MIR educativo, deja que te cuente un poco mi experiencia sobre cómo se forman los docentes en Inglaterra. Abro 🧵 sobre #educacion
Una vez uno decide que quiere ser #profesor, lo primero que tiene que hacer es ponerse en contacto con algún centro (normalmente una universidad) que ofrezca el llamado PGCE (Ma. en Educación) o el QTS course (que es lo mismo, pero no te dan el título de máster al final).+
Cuando eres aceptado, empieza tu primer año donde básicamente das clase 4 días a la semana y vas, a la universidad 1 día. Por ej., yo enseñaba Lu, Ma, Ju y Vi e iba a la universidad los Mi. Como pueden imaginar, muchas veces empiezas a enseñar antes de empezar la #formación.+

@_pem_pem Why this is nonsensical: "Jeffrey Lieberman, a professor of #psychiatry at Columbia University...“The problems that they’ve been criticized for have more to do [with] the way they’re used by doctors & the heterogeneity of the condition that they’re indicated for.” /1
@_pem_pem What Lieberman is saying is that if #antidepressants were prescribed to a population for which they are known to work well, they would have a much better track record. This is true, because it is a tautology. /2
@_pem_pem The reasoning is circular, if #antidepressants were prescribed for those people for whom the drugs worked, they would work. /3

THREAD on DUTIES: I do approx. 13 duties per week. Mostly in the canteen. With a reasonable AHT teaching timetable on top, I have a vested interest in not using my voice too much and certainly not shouting. So here’s a thread with some tips for any less seasoned duty staff /#ECT
A lot of these are mentioned as good in-classroom techniques by @DougLemov , e.g. ‘radar’ ‘be seen looking’ ‘least invasive intervention’ but I shall summarise them here in my own words as pertains to my (secondary) school canteen…
1. POSITION - have a couple of default high-visibility positions, where you can see as much of the space as possible. For me this is often near the door so I can see in + out of the canteen, or further into the room with max visibility.

📢#NoECT #StopISDS🛑
Why does the state never win in claims under the #EnergyCharterTreaty and how is #Luxembourg 🇱🇺connected to some of these claims?
The example of Abengoa Spain can give an insight in these questions:
Spain is the most sued country under the Energy Charter Treaty: it accumulates 50 lawsuits and a claimed amount of more than 10 billion euros. The solution is very simple: to avoid this waste of public money, the exit from the Treaty must be initiated.
In a claim under the #EnergyCharterTreaty it can never be said that "the State has won": the defence costs alone amount to millions of euros. As in the case of Abengoa Spain, Spain will have to pay 6.7 million taxpayers money only in process costs.

#ect @MrTs_NQTs @TeamRE_UK a couple of years ago I shifted how I mark and it changed my life. A thread. #edutwitter
1 I only mark work on lined paper so I can fit it all into one ziplock bag to carry round/ bring home. You never know when you might find a few moments to mark- I’ve marked waiting for my interviews to start!
2. All work is then tagged together. With a class list on thé front.

Great piece by @tomperrett97 showing how the corporate court system doesn't only mean governments get sued for enacting #ClimateAction - they may be forced to reverse these vital policies 1/6 #NoISDS…
A reminder, this system was developed as a 'magna carta for capitalism' to help undermine the decolonial movements of the 50s-70s, as explained here by @_BvdM 2/6…
More recently, they've become a multimillion dollar industry which is helping fossil fuel corporations challenge climate action and maintain their profits, often raising funds to engage in new oil/ coal/ gas exploration. #ClimateEmergency 3/6…

A summary of my talk at #rED21 for those who couldn't make it 👀 👇

➡️ My experience of creating a coherent, evidence-informed curriculum for training novice (new and early career) teachers #ITT #ECT
Supporting novice teachers to build a mental model of teaching is important but hard to do. Having a visual model to provide coherence across their training helps them make connections.
I developed this model which blends the 5 core areas of the CCF/ECF with the 'Making Every Lesson Count' framework.

1) I just watched the documentary @cureddoc, about the past pathologization of #homosexuality by @APApsychiatric, its harmful stigmatization and treatments such as #ECT and #lobotomy, and the efforts that led to overturning the classification of being #gay as a #mentaldisorder.
2) @cureddoc is very good, but there is at least one false and misleading statement. At 1:12:11, near the end, text states, “#ECT continues as a treatment for severe forms of depression – with the consent of patients and effective results for many people.” Forced ECT still real.
3) @cureddoc #ECT is still often done without consent of the patient, many patients who did sign for it have later said they did not feel they were given proper informed consent, and many patients report long-term cognitive impairment, as well psychological trauma. #psychiatry

#EnergyCharterTreaty Dass Nuclear bisher noch darunter fällt, liegt daran, dass die @iaeaorg Verstrahlungstode u -Spätfolgen von Tschernobyl 1986 schlicht verleugnet. So ist den Schattenrichtern der WTO halt (offiziell) nicht klar, dass Nuklear sozial- und umweltUNverträglich ist
Nur 1 Bsp. aus dem #EnergyCharterTreaty "Sicherheit in einer Art und Weise zu erhöhen, die sozialverträglich, wirtschaftlich tragfähig u umweltverträglich ist." Da kriegt RWE doch sofort die Kasperklatsche vom WTO-Schattengericht💁‍♀️
Kapier echt die Welle nicht. Wir brauchen #ECT!
