The $1.4 trillion bipartisan, bicameral funding agreement announced today rejects the devastating and shortsighted cuts proposed by President Trump and makes historic investments in the American people and working families. #Appropriations appropriations.senate.gov/news/minority/…
The agreement supports children and families by making an historic investment in Child Care and Development Block grants ($5.8 billion), meaning as many as 44,000 more children will be served by the program. #Appropriations
It supports child nutrition programs that provide over 31 million children with lunch during each school day, and ensures that 6 million women, infants, and children receive the nutritional support they need through the #WIC program. #Appropriations

With more people starting to write their GRFP apps, I feel the need to throw in some non-technical advice for writing these statements: stay true to your self. This means:

1. Write a genuine narrative about *your* life and interests. Don’t try to put on a show for anyone.

cont.
it’ll be painfully obvious to the reader if you are simply trying to write what you think they want to read/fund. For both parts, speak your truth.

This leads to

2. You can and should take feedback into account, but *do not* let anyone fundamentally change your statement.
as a continuation of 2, I ended my statement with the following:

“I believe training at UCSF supplemented with the NSF GRF will allow me to be the best scientist, educator, and activist to serve my community.”

Of course, I received an edited version that had “activist” removed

For clarity. When i say #showertime. I mean when the government puts drugs in your shower head, and you're dosed every time you take a shower. You'll be easily manipulatable, and appear crazy to the regular John.
You might also be impartial to taking showers, exhibiting all the symptoms of "mental illness". (and or smelling and looking like shit). So Obamas church crew, being led by "#mentalhealth professionals, local law enforcement officials" can come and get you. Under #ExecutiveOrder
But can you prove it to a Judge like Jeffrey Steven White??

Ask @SharylAttkisson

@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz Set up ways to continue dialogue with @NIHDirector & committee–ongoing conversation & input. Action plan before you leave. Also make clear any further delays are unacceptable. Action plans, strong regulations/policies must be instituted immediately. Petition is excellent example.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector 1- Many excellent thoughts/suggestions in thread. We thought a list of comments/support/urgency from many sectors may be useful. Concerning that @NIHDirector has not made clear, active efforts to stop #SexualHarassment by @NIH grant holders while @NSF & other orgs have.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector @NIH @NSF 2- Why isn’t #SexualHarassment a top #NIH priority. Why the resistance to actively creating strong policies against #SexualHarassment to protect #WomenInMedicine #WomenInScience #WomenInSTEM #WomeninEngineering, even when called out repeatedly by many. What’s the real issue here?

What’s inside? 🧐 It’s FORMAMIDE! 🤗 Formally removing RNA’s form with formamide! 🤓 FORMAMIDE in loading buffer breaks up & replaces the bonds between bases holding RNA's shape together 👇
