Thanks, @NimiHoffman and congratulations.
I would say that all scholars have a responsibility to call for a change in how and whether randomized controlled trials take place. Southern scholars are in a particularly vulnerable position in this regard. They have a responsibility *alongside* Northern scholars. @gchelwa
@gchelwa Southern scholars have a choice of being 'compradors' & local informants in RCT production, & other development research enterprises (though RCTs have been main game of late), or of being left out of circuits of money & prestige, & dismissed as methodologically behind the times.

In 2008 I watched #RonPaul cheated out of winning the #RNC National Convention. #WeThePeople watched the #PartyElite change the rules, on the floor, and #RigTheVote.

We organized and cleaned out establishment #OldGuard #Republicans, voted them out, volunteered, participated
In 2016 I watched #FeelTheBern supporters lied to - their votes rigged by @HillaryClinton @DWStweets and thrown away. Many of them obediently fell in line, shut up, and voted for one of the most corrupt politicians of the modern era.
With @realDonaldTrump we have a reformist:
* gutted the #GOP
* appointed over 170 federal judges and counting
* placed 5 #FederalReserve Governors and promoted Powell to Chairman ( Think #Restructure ) - thus controlling it
* Killed a Globalist #NewWorldOrder Trade Deal #TPP

Journalists who covered the war in Bosnia are taking a stand against the Nobel Prize going to Peter Handke. Using the hashtag #BosniaWarJournalists, they're describing what they witnessed in the 1990s. Tomorrow, Sweden's king is scheduled to give the Nobel to Handke.
So far, there's Christiane Amanpour, Samantha Power, Roger Cohen, Sheri Fink, Jeremy Bowen, Gilles Peress, Janine di Giovanni, among others. Reporters who chronicled the Serb genocide of Muslims are saying the literature Nobel is going to a writer who denies what happened.

Su madre, analfabeta, inculcó en él la sed de saber y le regaló su primer libro.

A los quince años abandonó los estudios por falta de medios y tuvo que ponerse a
trabajar de cerrajero.

Posteriormente trabajó una Caja de Pensiones, y más tarde se dedicó al periodismo, la labor editorial y la traducción.

Colaborador de diversos periódicos y revistas, entre ellos Seara Nova, fue también codirector del Diario de Noticias en 1975.

After covering phoney evolutionists, astrophysicists, I'll work on some material on famous #psychologists, who help build the mental cage for mankind. Defining what's NORMAL to think (aka what they WANT you to think and what not). Let's spot some luciferian #freemasons, shall we?
I went through some works of one of the big shots in #psychology, #CarlGustavJung. Guess what, #CGJung's grandfather was a Grand Master #Mason in Switzerland. Surprises. Wiki says #craftsman: code for #freemason. Original Jung coat of arms had a #phoenix, a #masonic symbol.
#CarlJung's grandfather is rumoured to be an illegitimate son of #Goethe, who was decorated in the usual elite occult medals. Goethe was the writer of #Faust, who sold his soul to the #Devil. Faust means fist. Fist is a major #masonic symbol. Must be coincidences, right?

The end of another semester of engaging students with @WikiEducation at @MissouriSandT @sandtcasb in #HistSCI means another tweet thread about this super fun project.
49 students, 32 articles, 40K words added, +285K views so far. I love their work! Take a look!
I'm going to group them. First group-- #WomenInSTEM #WomeninHistory
Students found that, uh oh, it's HARD to find reliable sources on women in science! This didn't stop them, though. They pushed through and learned some new research skills.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_S._… is 1 product.
Tycho's sister, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_Br… was another article that needed work. The women who worked on this one had to find all sources on Tycho then sift through for the 2-3 pages about Sophia. Thank goodness for good #librarians at S&T who were patient and helpful!

I have so many issues with this article and the constant crap about #aliens from the #oumuamua asteroid analysis. Let's get started (1/10)

"the idea that it’s arrogant to assume we are alone in the universe, or even a particularly special species."

Agreed. But still assumption w/o proof. But... moving on. (2/10)
Author says his alien theories have "left some of his peers nonplused, grumbling at a flimsy theory or bewildered as to why Harvard's top astronomer won't shut up about aliens" Yes. Please phrase it in a way that makes the rest of us sound unreasonable. (3/10)

We really put the FUN in dysfunctional - Canada is a relatively small country on a population standpoint, but we are ever smaller if we are divided across provinces - @cdavidnaylor #CSPC2018
+ the majority of dollars in HERD come from universities, not federal. To note, provinces don't contribute much either, though Québec has been a model to follow.
Canada doesn't collaborate well across provincial borders, they work much more with international partners. We have a chance to knit #cdnsci closer together and make our science more national ➡️ we have a chance to realign

THREAD) How famous do you have to be to get a place in @Wikipedia?

Sometimes, you have to win a Nobel Prize.

This is a thread looking at all the scientists who have been added to Wikipedia since 2007, but only after having been awarded a #NobelPrize. 1/
The English Wikipedia is an amazing resource, but its coverage of scientists can be a bit haphazard and at times misses many important figures.

(This is in contrast to athletes, who are pretty much guaranteed to have an article if they have ever appeared professionally.) 2/
This particular thread was inspired by Professor Donna Strickland, one of this year's Physics Nobel Laureates. At the time she won the Nobel, she not only didn't have an article in Wikipedia, but previously she had a proposed article rejected. 3/

#Inktober index card 3: I’m #TeamIce for #MinCup2018, infatuated with this simple & elegant mineral.

Here’s my interpretation of ice from chemical composition to melt molecules to crystal hexagons. I couldn’t find my blue pens for sketching the #thinsection. Shush.

This is all true, but also misses the mark in a critical way. Of course #NobelPrizes do distort science and misrepresent its history.
The #NobelPrizes are also so biased in favor of white men that it would be comical if it weren't so tragic and destructive.
But to once a year portray these as problems of #NobelPrize a massive mistake.
