China's President Xi Jinping's alma mater Tsinghua University just released a survey named "China Unfiltered: The Chinese People's View on National Security". (“无滤镜的中国”:中国人的国际安全观调查)

What did the survey find? A thread. /1🧵 Image
Tsinghua University is widely known as one of China's 'Big 2' universities (along with PKU), and is arguably the most politically connected one -- having produced 4 out of the last 6 Presidents and Premiers, including Xi Jinping (pictured in 1975 at his send-off to Tsinghua)./2 Image
This survey is done by Tsinghua's CISS (Center for International Strategy and Security), and has made 8 findings. /2

1. Almost 80% of Chinese people believe they have 'great' (36%) or 'good' (41.3%) understanding of international security. /3 Image

"The established supply chain for scholarly books presents a major challenge for small or new #OA publishers to thrive. Specialised title management systems, for instance, are difficult to access and many systems are not oriented to #openaccess books." #ScalingSmall #OABooks
"@COPIMproject has dedicated time and attention to this issue developing @Thoth_metadata, a #metadata management system, that aims to level the playing field between large and small publishers by alleviating some of the difficulties faced by scholar-led presses."

If institutions & funders are serious about #OpenScience & #OpenResearch then they have to reassess reward & recognition systems for academics so that there is a culture change away from traditional prestige publishing
#ScalingSmall #OABooks
It's about redirecting labour & funds to #open rather than propping up the status quo - part of this is for academic institutions to work with publishers to develop sustainable & equitable #openaccess options (not just those funded by TAs, APCs & BPCs)...
#ScalingSmall #OABooks
Also key for publishers to work with academic libraries to ensure #openaccess content can be found & accessed via library discovery layers + embedded in teaching.
#OA content should be as discoverable to library-users as paywalled content! #MetadataMatters

#PolitiFact, ovvero #Open americano, provano a smontare l'intervista nella quale il CEO di #Moderna ha ammesso che stavano lavorando al vaccino anti #COVID19 quando ancora il #Covid_19 non esisteva.

Secondo i #Puente Boys americani, Stephane #Bancel si riferisce al fatto che #Moderna già da anni stava lavorando a vaccini contro i coronavirus [in collaborazione con #DARPA ndr] in particolare un vaccino mRNA contro il MERS-CoV documentato già a dicembre 2019

Ma la domanda e la risposta sono chiare

D: “You were working on a vaccine for covid at that point covid-19 didn't even really exist”
R: “I think there was no name at the time”

Si riferiscono al #SARSCoV2 non al MERS-Cov (che allora aveva un nome)

0/ In the past weeks, #Mastodon network grew by 50% (and counting). A growth level that would impress any investor. And a growth level that makes many of the network's older users weary. To grow or not to grow – this is the big question for the #Fediverse. A 🧵:

The #startup world's dirty not-so-secret: most startups fail. Startups are risky and so investors place bets on lots of startups and fold the ones that don't show promise, which sucks for the company employees, but also for the users who depend on the company's products. 1/ The staring eye of HAL9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

PyPSA-Earth enables large-scale collaboration by being applicable worldwide. The model is derived from PyPSA-Eur (EU model) using new data and functions. It is suitable for operational as well as combined generation, storage, transmission expansion studies.

See Nigeria:

The model architecture is built around `Snakemake` as a workflow management tool. It makes the model flexible and 'easy' to use, while having other benefits.

Curious about the other benefits? You can read more in the Snakemake paper:…

#Brain: Brain connectivity mirrors genetic pleiotropy in psychiatric conditions…
1/7 #Polygenicity (=multiple genetic variants associated with one condition) and #pleiotropy (=one genetic variant influencing more than one trait) are key properties of the genomic architecture of #psychiatric conditions and represent major challenges in identifying mechanisms.
2/7 We processed 9 rs-fMRI datasets including 32,726 individuals, to examine the connectome-wide effects of 15 copy number variants, 7 polygenic scores (common variants), and 4 idiopathic psychiatric conditions (Autism, Schizophrenia, ADHD, Bipolar disorder).

Tune in to listen to @rajbhagatt to understand systemic and natural reasons why #Bengaluru floods, and what can be done about it.
Despite being 900m above the sea level, why does this water logging happen?

Topography of ancient #Bengaluru was apt for making bunds/tanks along the valley to support irrigation.

Now these tanks and bunds became interconnected network of lakes.

Developments (roads, elevations, buildings) started happening around these valleys and lakes.

This prevents percolation of water underground

So many of the heavily flooded areas fall in the valley region
