"The appointment of perhaps the most hardline neoconservative hawk to the new position of Special Representative for Iran is the latest in a long line of escalatory measures the #TrumpAdministration has taken."

To all the new #graduate students starting their #PhD or the ones already in it. It's true that the #journey of a PhD is like #life packed into a few years. You must also understand that it is not your entire life either! Life goes on despite how this journey goes or ends! Thread
I made this #infographic to represent my journey in #gradschool at @UMassChemEng @UMassAmherst. When you're in the thick of things, It will be hard to see the light at the end. Everyone around you will keep telling you that but most of the times it will seem #impossible!
Year 3, 4, and 5, I went through multiple cycles of #depression. I cannot put a finger on anything specific of why that happened. What I realized though, is that every time I came out of that cycle, I found enormous amounts of hidden #energy and #strength.

I have joined the Army of brave souls who completed their #PhD during the global #pandemic of 2020 #COVID19 . I am full of gratitude to everyone that contributed to this mammoth achievement directly or indirectly. 🎓👨‍🔬👨‍💼 @forbeslabumass @JWLeeJWL @UMassChemEng #microbiome #mucus ImageImage
I am looking into ways to have my name on the diploma to be 'Abhinav Priyanka Sharma'. My wife @priyankaitkar9 has contributed equally towards this degree emotionally. Without her love & support it would be incredibly hard to find the courage to keep going when I hit rock bottom.
My parents never went to college but made sure I had the best education possible. Even if that meant keeping me in the city away from them since the age of 5. They have invested their entire life emotionally and financially to my education. Hope I can give back as much as I can.

#Academics--It's so important to share our research w/ the world outside the ivory tower. Since I started studying friendship, I've learned a lot about how to do this & have been featured in NY Times, Vice, Telegraph +

Here's my advice:

#AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter
1. Start by signing up for "HARO" Help a Reporter Out; you'll get emails from journalists looking from sources and you can weigh in when someone is looking for your area of expertise.
2. Start pitching op-eds based on your research. I pitched Psychology Today and know many psychologists have been successful with PT. Here's some more info on pitching: theopedproject.org/oped-basics

Picking up the convo with some additional questions #academics #promotion
You should absolutely document canceled abstracts and invited talks and mark "canceled due to COVID." These are signals of your hard work, accomplishments, and recognition
Here's an example from my CV - I may not be able to go and actually present, but it was a meaningful acceptance for me & my team and I thought merited some "credit."

All #Australian #Academics please note:

CENSUS DAY is fast approaching (for many Unis 31st March, some 26th March [today!])

***Please remind your students that they can withdraw before Census Date without financial or academic consequence in that course***
A million Australian have lost their jobs this week. Mostly casuals like our students. I am get heart wrenching emails from my students.

In these circumstances, students physical and mental well-being may be served by reducing sources of stress and anxiety. Like study
We love our jobs, and teaching our students. But for many of them the best thing right now may be to pause their study:

#Academics Are you "force" to teach online as a result of COVID19?

Here is a way to implement Twitter in your classrooms: #Thread
1️⃣Students sign-up w professional handle (no exceptions) & tweet at you [faculty] - this is important to ensure they have a proper online appearance. 1/6
2️⃣Give them a target - 5-10 tweets/wk in your specific topics. This gives them an expectation to follow - and helps you with grading. 2/6

I'm not "picky" with content as long as it pertains to the topics being discussed.

YOU ARE BEING MANIPULATED, AND OUR DEMOCRACY DESTROYED,
BY #BRITAIN'S 'JEWISH' 'BOARD OF DEPUTIES' !

THE BIG LIE OF 'ANTI-SEMITISM'.

This LIE destroyed Jeremy #Corbyn, Labour's chances of winning the recent General Election ... and handed power, and control over your lives,
to the ultra-right wing Tories.

#Britain's democracy and your democratic rights, in other words, were stolen by the undemocratic, unrepresentative, ultra-right-wing 'Jewish' Board of Deputies.

- - - -

HOW A TINY MINORITY IN #BRITAIN ARE NOW CONTROLLING BRITAIN!
It will shock you to discover that in a country with a population of more than SIXTY SIX MILLION PEOPLE, there are ONLY 260,000 JEWS!

That means that LESS THAN 0.1% OF THE PEOPLE IN #BRITAIN ARE JEWISH.

1/ Time Management is today's #MedEdMethodsMonday #MedThread

As junior faculty & a #GIM fellow working on a #MedEd Masters, life is often a precarious juggling act. How do you stay on track in #academics?

#Medtwitter #MedEdPearl #FOAMed
2/ Components of Time Management
Gordon & Borkan’s lit review highlights 4 principles of time management tiny.cc/MedEdTime:

1. Set goals
2. Prioritize competing responsibilities
3. Plan & organize activities
4. Minimize wasted time
3/ Set Goals
- Set short- (1-3yr) & long-term (5-10yr) goals for your career
(see tiny.cc/MedEdGoals)
- Break long-term ends goals into bite-sized means goals
- Monitor past & current activities for goal compatibility

Some of the #teamies, i.e. me, can't be there which is really sad but for a wonderful reason, granddaughter-sitting-Sadie-Rose. So I thought in celebration of the launch, I'd share some photos from the art exhibition that ran alongside the conference.
What better place to start than with the art exhibition team: @10PYusuf, The Dame and @Rodkippen.

There will be more!

@10PYusuf @Rodkippen As with many stories there was of course a #backstory - @DrDeeMichell and me(!) met at the Foundling Museum for a pre-conference chat where talked all things orphans and #CEP. Dee had travelled with hubby to be at the conference.

As a #trauma researcher I often wonder why the fact that violence is squarely within the repertoire of normal human behavior is absent from the conversation among #academics and #culture observers more broadly. #whyisthat
Something deservedly undesirable in many contemporary contexts is not, as a result, abnormal.

Instead, I’d argue violence is often a maladaptive problem solving or #emotion regulation strategy.
But by dismissing violence as somehow aberrant, we make little progress in understanding root causes or intervening effectively.

To add, I as a US-based researcher w/ #ScienceOutreach experience going into UK #SciComm & #PubEng, it struck me how INTEGRATED #reflectivelearning is to their work culture.

ie, integrating failure-learnings are incentivized

I’m in awe of @LouWoodley for bringing that to @aaas
I cannot stress enough how important Institutional Incentivisation is for not just acknowledging #Failures in #STEM, but also in truly integrating learnings into DAILY practice.

Independent orgs like @GuerillaScience @AcademicStandUp , the incentive is sustainable business.
But what about #Academia? Or individual #scientists #academics #SciComm practitioners where the pressure to produce, publish, & keep grinding...

What are the specific barriers to a regular #reflectivepractice?

And how can your institution/community alleviate it?

Thread on being told we must policing our language skillz or it will cost us our voice.

A huge discussion broke out on the Idle No More OFFICIAL Facebook page today. An 'Ally' decided it was finally time to let us all know that after reading our comments on that page, ...2/
...it was time we heard that unless we start learning how to employ proper English most of our allies will simply, summarily dismiss our efforts. He really felt he was doing us a favor.

When he received the pushback he so earned, the number of other 'allies' on that page .../3
... who apparently feel the same way, chirped up in support & also advised us this was not racist in any way - just a fact of life. It was clear they honestly believed that, & they clung to conclusion despite some pretty clear education from those of us who are aware of ...4/

Recently, a #tenured #prof at a grp dinner made a #sexist joke. I didn't laugh.

He pointed at me & called me out on it.

"See, I knew SHE wouldn't get it."

I reported it to an #administrator & copied a 1st yr prof also present at dinner. She corroborated my story.

Thread 1/7
Like me, she couldn't say anything during dinner as senior prof collaborated w/ our prog, which he reminded us several times. The administrator I spoke to was sympathetic & concerned, & assured us that senior prof is a well-known a**. We aren't the 1st to run afoul of him. 2/7
Hearing their responses validated my experience greatly.

The 3 of us discussed how junior prof & I would deal w/ future events. One way was to ask senior prof to clarify his "jokes."

Junior prof said this was likely to be the least destructive. Administrator agreed. 3/7

1/n Tips for scientific writing: eliminate distractions (internet, phone notifications, people around you, chores). However, get up and walk around every half hour- helps with inspiration!
2/n Tips for scientific writing: when you get stuck on an idea, write yourself a note in the text and come back later. If necessary move on to another section of the paper- keep your flow!
3/n Tips for scientific writing: write in simple, clear, or even colloquial language first, to get the idea clearly from your mind to the page. Get most of the paper written this way. Polish later!

Mega-thread on turning your dissertation into a book, drawing on advice from top university press editors who just participated in a panel discussion here @YaleCTL. Share widely! #academicpublishing #academics (1/?)
One of the main differences between dissertations and book manuscripts is the intended AUDIENCE. Dissertations are written for 2-3 people, whereas books should reach a much wider audience. Dissertations are often DEFENSIVE in tone and have to pay their dues via lit reviews, etc.
Book manuscripts should adopt a more poised approach, and editors are often more interested in the STORY or QUESTION behind a book rather than its apparatus. Confidence, and authorial voice, are much more important here.
