The Conservative Party of Canada supports a 3 year prohibition on embryonic stem cell research.

They claim adult stems cells are more promising, so let's look at their claims.

#cdnpoli #elxn43 #NeverScheer #stemcells #research #science
The Ford Government has already cut funding for stem cell research.

"Scientist working on treatment of premature babies calls move 'extremely short-sighted and uninformed'"

What are embryonic stem cells?
"Embryonic stem cells exist only at the earliest stages of embryonic development and are capable of making any cell type in the body."

Africa generates less than 1% of world’s research.

Africa has 79 scientists per million compared to Brazil (656), Chile (428) & United States (4,500).

South Africa’s research foundation and Tunisia’s science ministry are the biggest funders of #science #research in Africa. /1
Woeful Africa:
1. 15% of the world’s population
2. 25% of the global burden of disease
3. 1% of global investment in R&D
4. 0.1% of the world’s patents

Scientists trained in Africa most likely work elsewhere due to lack of infrastructure and resources. /2

#science #research
More than 80% of patents filled in Nigeria are by foreign entities. /3

A team of 35 interviewers from @Bluedotinsights are now in field conducting an independent, self-funded, multidimensional, nationally representative poll around the much discussed PNP Presidential Elections.
#aThread

Photo: Jamaica Observer
The poll will incorporate several methodologies such as traditional polling, online polling, sentiment analyses, neuroscience and data science.
We decided to do this based on the conflicting polls previously conducted which has led to public mistrust of the validity of political polling.

psycnet.apa.org/search/display… A meta-analysis of 14 RCTs 🙄 for #BPD found that Treatment As Usual (TAU) helped a bit, Major finding given that #TAU is meant to be a control/inert treatment in #RCTs. This finding suggests more #research on the nature of TAU is needed. Brand new study!
While on the topic of meta-analyses, let it be known that once upon a time not very long ago (ca. 2006) in the world of academic #psychology, meta-analyses were looked down upon: /3
not experimental; boring; gl getting a tenure track job w a meta-analytic research program. Things have change and they are now the rage it seems. 3/3

*Tips to mount a strong essay for a scholarship [A thread]*

Having engaged in the search of a scholarship for a master's, I realised that every winning essay has 6 key features which I will share with you. Though every scholàrship is specific, the fundamental ideas are similar
1. Your essays should #clearly demonstrate your career goal. This is not always evident even for those who have been practicing for some years. So, Google on possible career paths in your field of interest, discuss with a senior and/or accomplished colleague etc. #research
2. Ur career goal should match your proposed course. It's impossible to win if your assessor doesn't see the link between your proposed course and objective(s). So, spend time to explain this link in simple terms and without jargons as most of them are not experts in your field.

Alors, je vous présente… our findings about (1) what academic #research already exists about UK charities & #philanthropy and (2) the topics on which UK charities & donors say that they would like more academic #research.

(Thread)
#charity #impact #eval #impinv
2/ Combined, the results are a ‘gap analysis’ which can inform future research. Both studies were funded by @Charity_Futures, re its work establishing an Institute of Charity at Oxford University. But the findings can inform the agenda of any researchers in this terrain.

THREAD: What are some writing tips for a successful @Spencer_Fdn Research Grant Proposal?
So glad you asked! ONE: Remember who your readers are. Your proposal will be read by people who are knowledgeable in your field of study & methodology as well as generalists in ed research.
Therefore, your writing should be clear and direct. While you may use technical language in your proposal, please avoid jargon and hyperbole.
TWO: Plan writing with your deadline in mind. It's tempting to aim for the next available proposal deadline, but that can lead to rushed and incomplete proposals.

0\DISCLAIMER: All information provided is public domain. All conclusions are drawn from publicly verifiable information

During Telcoin's AMA, Telcoin's CEO Claude gave us some very insightful information. Research from this information is what has brought you the #VimoFindings
1\ Claude stated, if you read it, it says that "Vimo has an exclusive partnership with Mobifone. which pointed us to them" It is reasonable to assert that Mobifone is a partner of Telcoin. In casual conversation you don't just recommend your partner company for no reason.....
1a\ This leads me to believe that Vimo is a soft rollout, if successful, Telcoin would partner with Mobifone. Next is the mention of the NextTech group. This is the first time we've heard that name before! Let's investigate!

I read a great article on why the younger generation do not buy cars & apartments anymore & found it #TooGoodNotToShare

#WhyOwnWhenYouCanRent?

#SharedEconomy

Nowadays,the traditional measure of success-owning an apartment & or a car-is getting out of date
An increasing number of young people around the world don’t want to buy them.

#Research shows that the so-called #MillennialGeneration, who are now 30-35 years old, rarely buy houses and even more rarely — cars. In fact, they don’t buy super expensive things at all.
In the USA, people under the age of 35 are called ’the generation of renters.’

Why does this happen?

Some sociologists say the current generation of young people differs from their parents’ generation. They have other values.
