NCI myeloma steering committee consensus on relapsed myeloma. Authored by investigators who design & conduct US randomized trials.

@BloodCancerJnl @myelomaMD @NoopurRajeMD @nsc_natalie @andrew02114 @SLentzsch @PLMcCarthyMD @theNCI #OpenAccess…
The NCI myeloma steering committee is the group that reviews proposed US cooperative group @eaonc @SWOG @ALLIANCE_org phase III trials in myeloma.

@NorthTxMSG @MyelomaTeacher
At present @Myeloma_Doc @szusmani and I lead the myeloma committees in @SWOG, @ALLIANCE_org, and @eaonc, respectively.

We are constantly thinking of ideas for phase III trials, focusing on ones that industry may not run.

The paper I co-authored with @katyoj 'Blockchain Imaginaries and Their Metaphors' is available in #openaccess.…
It focuses on the performative role of #blockchain imaginaries and metaphors, which guide technologists, enthusiasts and adopters 🧵
Blockchains instantiate imagined stateless communities, engaging in new modalities of economic relationships, socio-political organizing, and common knowledge production.
The images of such communities require shared understandings of the novel, complex and counter-intuitive technological base of these decentralized technologically mediated spaces.

New #OpenAccess paper in @SeismoSocietyAm "The Seismic Record": The 27 February 2022 Lop Nor Earthquake: Detectability, Location, and Discrimination. How forensic #seismology can demonstrate that a seismic disturbance near a #nuclear test-site is natural.…
I wish to thank my co-authors, Esteban J Chaves and Mark Fisk, for their amazing help, cooperation, and enthusiasm! The paper is quite compact as the journal's philosophy demands, but here is a little TL-DR for anybody who is curious about forensic seismology.
On 27 February 2022, a magnitude 4.8 #seismic event took place near the northern part of the Chinese Lop Nor #nuclear test site. Forensic #seismology has to identify the source of such seismic disturbances. #LopNor #forensicseismology #nucleartesting

Today marks #SummerSolstice2022, the longest day of the year.

At Stonehenge, this special sunrise would have been framed by a pair of stones (although now only one survives).

This computer model of the site shows how the Heel Stone and its missing partner would have framed the solstice sunrise, marked by the solid red arrow.

This event likely had spiritual significance, but it could have also had a practical purpose.

Stonehenge may have served as a calendar, helping people count the days, weeks, and months of the year. The solstice shining through on the correct day confirms you counted right. Image

Notre éditorial avec @GidMK et @FLAHAULT est en ligne, dans lequel nous parlons des mesures de restriction de la mobilité et de la manière dont elles peuvent influencer le cours du #COVID19.

Un petit fil conducteur (traduction du tweet ci-dessous)🧵…
Nous reconnaissons tout d'abord que les questions relatives aux interventions gouvernementales qui restreignent les mouvements sont complexes et, bien qu'elles aient été jugées utiles...
elles sont très controversées, et à juste titre, surtout si l'on considère ce que nous voyons actuellement en Chine.

🌟New paper & data #openaccess #PartyPolitics. Mapping party campaigns 2010-19 I show that to understand how thin ideas play into electoral gains of anti-establishment parties, we need to look beyond just populism @GSI_Muenchen @ExtremandDem @PopulismTeam…
Populism has become a popular buzzword. Some approaches thus argued that we should drop the term altogether. I instead suggest that we should rather be mindful when applying it. So I don't argue that populism is irrelevant. I nonetheless show that it is not the whole story. 2/
We know we should not confuse populism with thick ideas, e.g. nativism. Thick ideas continue to be primary drivers of political contestation. I at the same time argue that parties can use more diverse *thin* ideas as an important auxiliary mobilizing tool in party competition. 3/

We have a newly published paper on #IndoorAirQuality and it is #OpenAccess! This was a fun study and here’s a short thread on some of our findings. /1…
We put a bunch of low-cost air quality monitors in four homes to measure concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) during the occupants' everyday lives. Each home deployment was about 10-weeks long.
Not all low-cost monitors behaved the same way. Some were much better than others. But they all performed better during background periods (no indoor sources) compared to when there were indoor PM2.5 sources, such as indoor cooking. 3/

New issue! We have just released an #openaccess collection focused on new urban forestry approaches and concepts for city #planning.

The issue was edited by @Dr_alessiorusso and Francisco J. Escobedo and is available here:

What has the issue found? 🧵👇
1/ One of the priorities for cities is to provide equal access to healthy #food & lifestyles.#Urban food forests can contribute, but + effort is needed to identify the most effective mosaics of “#green” land uses.

@FAOForestry @sim1borelli @botanicaUGR
2/ The inclusion of edible species in urban forest stands can enhance nutrition and #wellbeing in the urban landscape, where food deserts are common.

“Wie offen sind ‘offene’ Online-Gemeinschaften?” fragen @loradob und ich in unserem #openaccess verfügbaren Artikel in der Kölner Zeitschrift für Soziologie und Sozialpsychologie:…

#1paper1meme und ein Thread 🧵 1/11
Selbst kommerzielle Plattformen wie Facebook, Twitter oder YT sind, verglichen mit traditionellen Medien, offen, weil sie Filterlogiken traditioneller Medien zumindest partiell umkehren. Sie ermöglichen verschiedenen Formen von Gemeinschaftsbildung. 2/11
Manche dieser Gemeinschaften setzen bewusst auf Exklusivität (z.B. geschlossene FB-Gruppen), andere setzen auf offenheitsorientierte Zugangsregeln, verschreiben sich also einer Offenheitsprogrammatik (z.B. im Kontext von Open Source, Open Strategy oder Open Data). 3/11

Hey #EconTwitter, do you use clustered standard errors? Do you worry about reliable inference? Our new guide explains when you should worry, when you shouldn't, and how to make better inferences. A joint 🧵 with @jgmQED and @MortenEcon. 1/

Our guide connects theory and practice to show what works and when. The methods we recommend in most cases are available in the @Stata packages boottest and summclust. These are easy to use and (usually) not very computationally demanding. 3/

Inspired by #BLM & work by @aflewellen @ArchFieldNotes @AliciaOdewale @HendrattaAli @melissa_cronin, we examine how 1000s of archaeologists have written about #racism using computational text analysis with racism-related keywords: “race", "racial", "racism", and “racist”. 1/ Poster with the text "black lives matter" in black
Our computational methods come from the innovative work of @ted_underwood @mljockers @dmimno & only possible thx to the excellent #rstats pkgs by @kenbenoit @opencpu @juliasilge & @drob.

Guten Morgen ☀️

heute soll es zunächst darum gehen, wie teils drastische Bestandseinbrüche bei #Insekten mit #Lichtverschmutzung zusammenhängen. Ein klein wenig werde ich auch auf andere Organismen eingehen.

Wenn ihr ihn noch nicht gesehen habt hier ist mein langer 🧵zum #Insektensterben

TL;DR: es ist komplex, nicht alle Studien finden Rückgänge. Angesichts unserer riesigen Wissenslücken zum Thema #Insekten sollte uns das aber auf keinen Fall beruhigen

Im Allgemeinen werden die gemessenen starken Rückgänge bei der (Flug)insekten-Biomasse & den Individuenzahlen hier bei uns in DE vor allem mit 2 Faktoren in Zusammenhang gebracht: Landnutzungsänderung (zB wenn aus 🌳🌲 & 🌿🌼 🏬🏢🏡werden) & Intensiverung der Landwirtschaft

🌟New paper #openaccess. I map two-dimensional normalisation strategies of anti-establishment parties 2010-2019 and show how this rhetoric played into their broader electoral appeal @JournalPolitics @GSI_Muenchen @ExtremandDem @PopulismTeam… 1/🧵
I argue and show that anti-establishment parties (AEPs) can actively navigate an image of both distinctiveness and ‘normality’ behind their substantive positions, and profit from their rhetorical strategies in terms of increased electoral performance, ceteris paribus 2/
I map rhetorical normalisation on 2 dimensions: mainstreaming and streamlining. Mainstreaming is used to enact broader AEP legitimacy as a ‘corrective’ to the practice of mainstream principles. AEPs use streamlining to enact broader credibility as respectable ‘counter elites’ 3/

2/ #AlphaFold can predict the folded protein shape, but not the complicated folding process itself. Often cells use protein complexes called chaperonins to help other proteins to fold. Here we purified a chaperonin called TRiC from cultured human cells.
3/ Purification was possible only by using #CRISPR genetic scissors. We introduced a purification handle in one of the 8 TRiC subunits. This allowed purification of the endogenous chaperonin as opposed to an engineered version of it. Quite a TRiCK! #samplerevolution

🚨New publication🚨

Practical recommendations to communicate with patients about health-related conspiracy theories
with @Karen_Douglas & @DrDanielJolley
in @theMJA

#openaccess here:…

A short 🧵 thread on our Perspective piece
Health-related conspiracy theories take many different
forms, but typically suggest that information is
deliberately concealed from the public by individuals
or powerful groups within the government or health
industry. These beliefs are widespread and potentially harmful.
e.g., “pharmaceutical companies are hiding evidence that vaccinations can cause serious illnesses and disabilities in children,” and “the number of COVID-19
deaths have been exaggerated by the media and governments to scare the population”

New research from @DrAimeeGrant @sara_wyn_jones @KatWilliams123 @AutisticUK @DrSchniff @Prof_AmyBrown, who reviewed Autistic people's experiences of infant feeding (breast- and formula- feeding) including healthcare support

🧵by @DrAimeeGrant… (1/11)
#Breastfeeding is encouraged because of known health benefits, but it is not easy and many parents experience challenges.

Due to differences in how Autistic people experience pain and bodily sensations, we thought that they may find breastfeeding harder. (2/11)
It's worth mentioning here that the research team was led by an Autistic woman, with two Autistic women who had experience of infant feeding themselves also part of the team. It was funded by the Research Wales Innovation Fund, part of @SwanseaUni (3/11)

Young people in #Russia, beyond our biased circles of friends, have turned into a black box for (Western) researchers. In @NationalitiesP @Nina_Friess & myself interpret focus groups from 2019, several surveys, films & literature to assess what young people make of World War II Image
We observe significant overlap btw what young people think ab victory in World War II #ДеньПобеды & prevailing political discourse. Still, there is controversy around the regime’s abuse of history, the role of Stalin & how to remember (or not) violence against civilians.
The focus groups reveal just how much the average young #Russian, regime supportive or in opposition, agrees that the war victory must be honoured by future generations. #ДеньПобеды should be celebrated, even if young people criticise the fuss that is made around it. Image

Out #openaccess!

With @apsmolenska we provide a birds-eye view of a bewildering world of EU climate finance policy. We argue for a radical overhaul, to make the prudential regulation of risk much more political. A 🧵 /1

@JFinReg Paper available here:…
As the @ECB recently acknowledged “few institutions have put in place Climate and Environmental risk practices with a discernible impact on their strategy and risk profile.” Banks are sleeping, greenwashing is rampant. /2
Today, bank lending mostly pursues short term profits.

In the neoliberal era, the Basel/EU framework acquired a narrow microprudential focus: preventing excessive risk-taking. The framework pursues this outcome by quantifying risk and setting bank capital as risk buffers. /2
