Which is it @Meta ?
Do you need to fix up your algorithm(s)? Do you not allow #academic exchanges (sic) about the #NaziGermany? Do you not allow #socialist descriptions of the Third Reich?
Does $FB have a problem with using it's platform to disseminate content with a #socialist bias?

How to survive the German (and other?) academic systems without having a permanent position?

A thread🧵.

(Disclaimer: This is about my personal experience as an ecologist. In other disciplines, it might be very different.)

#academia #IchbinHanna #ecology #academiclife
Background:
In Germany, it is difficult to get a permanent position in academia without the typical CV (eg reasonable publication list, period working abroad, being young) AND if you do not fit into the classical categories of research (eg botany). And bad luck, of course.
Positions are advertised very specifically on a certain topic. Perfect, if you fit, nearly impossible if you don’t. I was once asked in an interview if I can analyse a certain kind of data set. Nope. Out. A habilitation is often expected, although usually only vaguely stated.

(1/4) Can you pursue two degrees at a time? #AskLLA #LLA #JagrukJanta
(2/4) YES.
In a recent guideline announced by the University Grants Commission (#UGC)has allowed to pursue two full time #academic programmes at the same time.
This guideline is a part of the National Education Policy & will be applicable from current academic year 2022-2023.
(3/4) A few pointers of guidelines are -
A. Students can pursue 2 degrees in physical-physical mode, physical-online mode or online-online mode.
Eg- B.A. & BCom can be done together.
B. Courses can be from the same #university or from different universities.

Here's a 🧵unrelated to The Tirade. It's still #jobsearch season in the #academic #math world and people are Getting News. I want to encourage search committees and chairs to treat candidates humanely. Here are suggestions. (I'm sure I forgot important stuff, so please chime in.)
(1) Please answer candidates' emails. Yes I know you might get a lot of emails. You are busy. I get it. But you are in a position of power. Candidates, who are in vulnerable positions, deserve a response.
Based on my experience as a search chair...

Time to complete task: A lot.
Moral/ethical value of effort invested: High.

Here's a balanced thread on #academia vs #industry from the perspective of someone who has held senior positions in both. I'm going to write this thread because a lot of what I read here reduces to "my tribe is better than yours" or "grass is always greener".

1/n
The academic trade is fundamentally freedom for money.

As a Sr #academic you barely have a boss and really get to determine which of millions of options you can pursue. New intl grants? More policy engagement? Acad leadership? Media? Translational research? All up to you.

2/n
Making the most of this implies a couple of things:
1) you must have a clear path to a senior position to take advantage
2) your institution must not be over corporatizing.

Let's address these two

To those junior scholars having to spend multiple days on "zoom campus visits" first a big bravo, you are all doing a fabulous job in horrible circumstances! A few very small words of advice (see next threads) #academic twitter #anthrotwitter
1) Before you jump into the screen share provide a conversational intro (3-5 mins) to how you came to the project you are going to present and why it matters to you, what ideas are most important to you as a scholar right now beyond your project itself; then start the slides
2) Avoid putting transcriptions conversations/quotations on to your slides; maybe use images instead or some themes or provocations from the quotes you read in your text rather than the quote itself.

#Children should not be made to suffer because of #Omicron. Centre and States must cancel all #offline #exams forthwith. As a nation, we cannot take such a massive risk & play with the lives of our children. Online prelims are done, marks should be part of board marksheet.
Children belong to households that have either lost family members due to #Covid19 or members who suffer from #comorbidities & cannot be vaccinated. #Omicron shouldn't be taken lightly. Save our children. Protect our children. Cancel all #offline #exams immediately.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

1/ Yes, #Academic reasoning of value proposition. I have over 11+ years as an academic & professor. Most academics are good at analyzing & assessing things, as to building #DisruptiveTechnology The hungriest & most talented #entrepreneurs who designed from 1st Principles $eGLD ⚡️
2/ They have sold public that somehow you can have #Academics analyze something that has NEVER been done before. The very premise of value proposition is faulty at its core. $eGLD & $ADA You don’t know what you don’t know in #DisruptiveTechnology that is what makes it disruptive
3/ Many people don’t even understand what the #DisruptiveTechnological cycle looks like, behaves like or that this is what they are investing in. #CriticalThinking has all been lost among some. The level of comfort & deception is powerful. $ADA will do well but any one believing

Rick Feiock victimized students for 3 decades. As his latest victim said “I was scared. I didn’t know what to do...I haven’t told anyone because it’s very hard and I couldn’t tell them because I didn’t feel that I had anyone to protect me.” #MeToo floridaphoenix.com/2021/03/14/lon…
“Feiock had been investigated for sexual misconduct before. In 1991 and 2005, he was counseled and the behavior was documented in an annual performance evaluation.”
“When the new allegations surfaced in January 2020, Berry looked for reports made of his conduct in 1991, 2005 and 2018 only to discover that his personnel file had been wiped clean, according to the report... the reports had been cleansed”

1/ Scientific Discovery: time & patience
 
Be patient in science. 25 yrs ago, I & others felt we were harming ICU patients by deep sedation & immobility. Our goal: PROVE IT & change culture in #criticalcare.
 
How did we start?

#medtwitter #A2Fbundle #nursetwitter
2/ Scientific Discovery: takes time

There weren’t tools 😤Reluctantly, I had to go “backwards” to validate CAM-ICU & RASS (@JAMA_current X3). A DECADE later we produced studies lightening sedation (MENDS/ABC trials JAMA/@TheLancet). Be patient!

#academictwitter #ScienceTwitter
3/ Scientific Discovery: patience
 
Give yourself space to be creative! Science takes time & Data must lead you. All our 1st grants & papers were rejected for 5 YEARS. NIH said: #Delirium in ICU is not a viable topic or a “thing.” Go away. Persistence paid off for patient safety.

This has adverse implications for Black women working in #tech companies, which are already known for their lack of diversity. @ASA_SKAT @SSSP1org @datasociety @AINowInstitute @4sWeb (2)
The research of @timnitGebru and others has revealed the shortcomings of facial recognition for dark-skinned people, how #automation can both replicate and obfuscate #discrimination and how #algorithmic systems reproduce racial exclusion and environmental racism. (3)

Here's a little #Tweetorial of my presentation at @SCCM #CCC50 earlier today (available on demand!)

Here are "10 Tips for Better Presentations: Lessons from Storytellers" that can help improve your #MedEd, #Research, #Academic, & #Professional #presentations

#FOAMed #htdap
Our presentations suck. Period.

Presentations are fundamental to medical education. High volumes of information are “delivered” in lecture halls and medical conferences, but the uncomfortable truth is that very little of that information is actually retained.
Some reasons why:

- Our lecturing style has remained stagnant despite the fact that our understanding of how people learn has changed.

- Most presentations make the supportive media (i.e. slides) the focus of the presentation without thought about the story or the delivery.

during my #PhD, i conducted a side project investigating what the barriers are towards making changes to the #academicpublishing system to reduce publication #bias

this showed me a rather dark side to #academia... 1/8

i got about 50:50 praise and hate for this. weirdly enough, the praise and hate were often about the same thing: the (early) stage of my career.

praise: "it's great you're so keen and have grasped key issues and taken action so early..." 2/8
hate: "you're too early in your career and naïve to understand these issues. you shouldn't be researching this"

more worryingly, whilst i did get a lot of this feedback in person/by email, some of it was BEHIND MY BACK to my colleagues 3/8

Okay.this is stress induced. I just committed to moving..mid-semester, am sleeping 3-4 hours a night, leading a major event, in an accelerated grad school program, and amid a tense election. I do have intermittent pain, but my migraines have not been this bad for a while.
The last time I felt this way was 2018 when daily the @AmerAcadPeds was sending advocacy emails with images that I found personally triggering from my own past experiences, then this was in the news wbur.org/news/2020/01/0… about Boston Public Schools reporting students to ICE.
Meanwhile at work was dealing with weird comments made about minority patients, errors in the medical record w/ staff gaslighting minority patients, & my being seen as the same as the non-white clinician in our small group of less than 10. Now, this week: linkedin.com/posts/usnehal_…
