Proud to announce the final paper of my dissertation is out @ASHAJournals 🎉

Here, we aimed to assess longitudinal performance in language and other cognitive domains important for academic success in young adults with acquired brain injury (ABI) participating in intensive rehab Image
22 young adults with ABI (#stroke, traumatic brain injury (#TBI), tumor, encephalitis) attended ≥ 12-week semester of the Intensive Cognitive and Communication Rehabilitation program. The program (lectures, individual therapy, tech. training), was held 6 hours/day, 4 days/week. Image
14 young adults with ABI served as deferred treatment/usual care control participants. All participants demonstrated language and/or other cognitive impairment on a standardized assessment battery (WAB, RBANS, SCCAN, DCT) administered before/after each semester.

🔫 We Need to Talk About Booster 💉

DH: For the first 6 weeks of 2022 we are up to about half of the 2021 myocarditis VAERS reports, in just the first 6 weeks...it seems like it's accelerating...is that from the boosters...?

ED: Let's think about what happened...2021>
there were a lot of companies that said: "you have to get your booster," and also college kids...a lot of colleges mandated boosters coming back for the 2nd half of the year, a lot of kids had to get their shots in the fall or summer before they arrived on campus, and then>

#Graduates who never went to #college are graduating soon.
Into the third year of #online education?
The #hiring market currently is heated due to lack of good quality supply. Would the new freshers even compare to pre 2020 graduates? #Universities are not about the course curriculum but the halls and walls that teach you life while finding your interests.
God help us all.

1/8 Friday night, a light thread on the most exclusive Chinese medical school, started by Americans 100 years ago. It’s a piece of US-China history I want my own kids to know.
2/8 Like income inequality, China university resources are not as equal as in the US. There are top 2 universities (Peking U&Tsing Hua) that everyone agrees among top 2, with the rest vying for the third.
3/8 Peking Union Medical College协和. Each year it admits about 100 students, with 1-3 student from each of 31 provinces, except Beijing having a higher quota of 20. In 1993, My father said he would have gone crazy if I got in. He didn’t go crazy.

Un petit fil historique sur un sujet qui a (un peu) échauffé certains collègues enseignant(e)s sur les réseaux sociaux : les agrégés doivent-ils enseigner en collège ou ne serait-ce pas forcément leur place ?

#enseignants #collège #EducationNationale

👇👇👇
Ce fil est né d’un tweet d’un jeune collègue agrégé qui se plaignait d’être affecté en 6ème, suscitant des dizaines de réponses parfois assez dures. Revenons-en au fait : le statut et la fonction des agrégés devraient-ils leur éviter le collège ? (1)
Indéniablement, si on reprend un peu l’histoire du corps (conseillons d’emblée l’excellent ouvrage d’Yves Verneuil sur l’histoire des agrégés), l’agrégation et l’enseignement en lycée entretiennent des liens structurels. (2)

Finance Minister begins budget speech at #queenspark

Ontarians desperately need direct financial relief. Small business owners, people who have lost incomes, and people who are concerned about covid recovery need to be included in the plan. Will we see investments, or more cuts? Watch the full speech here: ola.org/en/legislative…
Will there be any support offered for people experiencing #homelessness in #Toronto? How about for #college and #university students who are concerned about their job prospects coming during and after school? #onpoli #onpse #topoli

1/ Best Reason to Go to #College? NYTs
 
Answer: to become aware of all we DON’T know...to UNlearn. This article makes timely points...
 
Richard Rohr says, “The only thing more dangerous than individual ego is group ego.”

“We’re caught up in an addiction to simplifications for which the only medicine lies within. We need to be reminded that not to be right doesn’t always mean you’re wrong. And that to be terribly wronged does not mean you’re innocent.”

“Traveling across Japan with Dalai Lama before #pandemic, I heard him say that after watching the planet up close as a leader for 80 years, he felt the world was suffering through an “emotional crisis.” The cure, he said, was “emotional disarmament.”

State of #unemployment & #underemployment in India is pathetic. But comparing that to the SSR case is worse. If rallying behind a cause is what it takes to shake an age old toxic tree, then why aren’t the ones who care about unemployment doing it? I care about both but saying one
is more important than the other is simply foolish. One case is about our economy and other is about drugs and sex trafficking. Not just murder. Both are fcuking up our youth.
Our #education system is a massive loophole. The govt talks about #DigitalIndia but cannot make a digital platform for education during the lockdown? How are universities around the world conducting exams? Why can't we build something when we have the ability?

2015 was a magical year. The magical month that year was May when we headed on our family #roadtrip from #Pindi to #Hunza

If you haven't done so as yet, once in your life you must take your children by road to Gilgit and Hunza one year. Skardu, Shigar and Khaplu the next year and Chitral in the third year.
Not this year, though. This year, stay put and stay safe.

On May 1st, 1921 the #Jaffa riots also known as "Me'oraot Tarpa" started in the land of #Israel as a result 47 #Jews were murdered and 146 were injured. ImageImageImage
Many times on #college #campuses, we tend to hear that prior to the #establishment of the State of Israel, Arabs and Jews lived "#peacefully" side by side, and the State of Israel was the reason the the hostility against the Jews. This argument is wrong, it is false.
The Jaffa riots were a series of violent riots in Mandatory Palestine on May 1–7, 1921, an attack by Arabs on Jews during which many were killed. The rioting began in Jaffa and spread to other parts of the country #Rehovot, #PetahTikva, #Hadera and elsewhere.

(1/13) Q: Help! My kid is supposed to start or return to #college in the fall. Will colleges even be open? Our family isn't that excited about Zoom U.

A: While very few colleges have announced firm plans, we compiled as much information as we could find in this thread:
(2/13) With so much #uncertainty about what the next academic year looks like, students and their families are having to make big, expensive decisions with little information.

What are some of the options schools are considering? The main scenarios are:
(3/13)
1. Open in-person instruction with changes to accommodate #Covid_19
2. Postpone the start of fall semester by weeks/months.
3. Online/remote instruction in Fall 2020, & re-open campus for Spring 2021.
4. Cancel fall semester and run a full academic year from Jan-Aug 2020

Hi everyone. Trying to stay quiet and mindful during these times - so not posting here often. But here's a quick thread for my #academictwitter colleagues and those working in #postsecondary #university #college settings now. /1
Some of us in teaching positions are in the position of deciding whether to "stay the course", provide a sense of "normalcy", etc. when it comes to our coursework and obligations to students.

So a few words for those not sure what business as usual might entail. /2
I'll preface this with an acknowledgement that I'm 1) a tenure-track prof w/ 2) considerable autonomy in an academic program 3) w/leadership that respects the work I do in the classroom. I realize this isn't typical, so what I'm sharing might not reflect your situation. FWIW: /3

Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

You know, I have so so so many thoughts about this topic. I’ll sum it up by:

Great for my @Morehouse brothers, but this story is still a band-aid on a massive problem.
You know about those stories that pop up in the news? The ones about how some disadvantaged soul goes through inordinate struggles to do every day activities, and receives the golden ticket to make their lives better?
Like this one, who gets a car from their boss for walking twenty miles to work,

మీకు తెలుసా, US లో దాదాపు 90% మంది విద్యార్థులు (kindergarten to 12th grade) ప్రభుత్వ పాఠశాలల్లో చేరుతారు!

ప్రభుత్వ పాఠశాల వ్యవస్థ ఎంత బలంగా ఉందో అర్థం చేసుకోండి!!

అలాగే, ఎవరూ విద్యను వ్యాపారంగా భావించరు.
ఎంత మందికి తెలుసు ప్రపంచంలో టాప్ 10 విశ్వవిద్యాలయాలలో వున్న మసాచుసెట్స్ ఇన్స్టిట్యూట్ ఆఫ్ టెక్నాలజీ (MIT), Stanford విశ్వవిద్యాలయం, హార్వర్డ్ విశ్వవిద్యాలయం ప్రైవేట్ (Private) మరియు లాభాపేక్షలేని (Non-profit) విశ్వవిద్యాలయాలు అని?

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!
