[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?
beltanenetwork.org/DialogueTheory…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

#Meditation happens beyond #mind. It involves watching #mind. When the real YOU, the watcher, becomes stronger the mind becomes the #servant.

No #discipline, #mantra or #scientific instrument can lead to meditation. No technique can go beyond mind.
The basis of all misunderstanding in a scientific circle is: when the being of a person is in a state of meditation, it creates certain waves in the mind. These waves can be wavelength from the outside by #technical means. But those waves will not create #meditation
You may go on practising with #scientific instruments for years; it will not change your #character, it will not change your #morality, it will not change your #individuality. You will remain the same.

Good morning Sir, @MoghaluKingsley
Here's what you said: "I am yet to see one killer herdsman brought to book. This shows the gross incompetence in the handling of National security in Nigeria"...
So I'll try to #UnmaskMoghalu in the light of this MISLEADING STATEMENT.
THREAD👇
Since we are in the election campaign season, and the fact that you are also coming forth to lead us in the highest elected office in Nigeria, it is pertinent to #UnmaskMoghalu so as to see you within the context of your statement.
Let's #FactCheck what you said on herdsmen Sir.
"I am yet to see one killer herdsman brought to book"...@MoghaluKingsley
Checking English Dictionary so as not to misrepresent what you said, "To bring to book" as an idiomatic expression "To confront or question one about one's wrongdoings, often as a precursor to punishment".

Hello Ma @obyezeks
Having considered your common slogan “#COMPETENCE, #CAPACITY & #CHARACTER”, & in the light of your ambition to lead a Nation like Nigeria in any political capacity not as appointed but elected I am more than convinced that you are far from it. #Fact
Thread👇👇
I don't think you have such #character to lead or the capacity to govern any community. Competence on its own is subjective to several parameters, and it is debatable if you are even competent for any elected office and I will explain further here:
#Fight4Naija
No, this is not an attack of your personality, it’s just a #RealityCheck meant to scrutinize whoever dares to desire any political office. You have used the same beam light on others, you are still using it to “attack” the leading candidates in APC and PDP....It's OK

2. & directly cause a storm thousands of miles away, the lesson is powerful. The repercussions of our actions, both spiritual and physical, are far more complex than we can fathom. A sharp or snarky remark can be the arrow that pierces a person’s self-esteem.
3. A seemingly small, kind comment or good deed can be the key that unlocks another’s untapped strength. Every thought, word, and action, is like a pebble cast into the sea, causing immeasurable ripple effects. You may think to yourself, “But I’m just 1 out of 7 billion people?

I read about some interesting #Corruption indicators and found them #TooGoodNotToShare ..

Surely worth a read and a self examination..

1 If you usually put more sugar in your tea when in a hotel than you do at home, You are likely to be corrupt..
2 If you use more tissue in a public washroom than you do at home, you are a potential thief if given an opportunity.

3 If you serve yourself more food that you can't finish just because someone else is footing the bill, you are greedy.
4 If u usually jump queues, you will potentially abuse office, if given a powerful position

5 If you’re more concerned about knowing someone's surname & not first name,you're likely to be a tribal bigot.Its even worse when someone tells you their name &u ask,WHICH TRIBE IS THAT?
