This week, I enjoyed visiting the vibrant, creative, & interdisciplinary researchers in @jointbme @CLEAR_NCSU_UNC.

I gave a seminar on lessons from translational #biomechanics R&D.

I shared 6 actionable tips to improve iterative, user-centric development in academic labs: 🧵
@jointbme @CLEAR_NCSU_UNC 1. Spend more time with users

• Get to know users deeply
• Don't focus conversations on your research/tech
• Give time for users to discuss their life & pain points

Use info to build user stories that complement technical requirements, & help prioritize studies or features
@jointbme @CLEAR_NCSU_UNC 2. Perform early user testing

• Most academics involve users too late
• People often feel they need a good prototype
• But this is a missed opportunity

There are lots of ways to test with and learn from users before you have a complete prototype or formal study protocol.

Now out with @PrincetonUPress!

“From Development to Democracy: The Transformations of Modern Asia,” written with @JosephWongUT.

What do we argue? And how do we try to offer new thinking on #development and #democracy in East and Southeast #Asia?

A 📘🧵! 1/21
@PrincetonUPress @JosephWongUT It might help to start by noting that the book’s working title was always “Democracy through Strength,” until the very last minute.

That’s our main argument, and it’s still the title of our theory chapter. 2/21
@PrincetonUPress @JosephWongUT Most simply put, democracy hasn’t arisen in the region we call “developmental Asia” because weak dictatorships COLLAPSED, but because strong dictatorships CONCEDED. 3/21

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

23authors|9sectors|17739 literature|countless meetings

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

What's Data Availability Sampling (DAS), and how does it factor into a modular blockchain? Let's break it down.#ETH #Ethereum #web3 #blockchain #development

🧵 👇
Data availability is an important area of active research. In order to scale a blockchain, the data needs to be both stored efficiently and retrievable for nodes (which may not be able to store the entire blockchain state).
Data is stored in blobs, which are made up of the original data, extended data, and proofs.

A few thoughts on building out an idea into a business / project. 🧵

1.) Write down everything, do not just put it in your phone. That may be convenient and easy, but something happens when you put pen to paper.
When writing ideas out by hand you will begin to notice more ideas flooding in and you begin to think more deeply about your project.
2.) Since you are writing ideas out by hand, make sure you carry a notebook with you wherever you go. This can be any size, but don't forget it. You never know when new details about your idea will come.

#MALI : Les mercenaires de #Wagner et les #FAMAS massacrent des civils à #Hombori dans un raid punitif

Les #mercenaires #russes de la société militaire privée Wagner et les FAMAS #maliens ont lancé mardi dernier un "raid" à Hombori
faisant 18 morts du "côté ennemi", ainsi que 15 blessés et 611 détenus, selon la version officielle.

Des témoins des événements consultés par #Efe ont toutefois indiqué que les personnes tuées aux mains de ces #soldats, parmi
lesquels il y avait une majorité de #Russes, n'étaient pas des terroristes mais des #civils rassemblés au #marché hebdomadaire local.

Ce #massacre est intervenu en représailles quelques heures après que les #troupes russes au #Mali,

Studying Industrial Economics, without learning cost accounting, quality mgmt, or operations management, is a waste of time.
Nobody cares who Lagrange, Hotelling, Cornett, and Nash were if you cannot explain basic outlay to the board of directors.
Universities are just pathetic.
Similarly, many financial economists have no understanding of financial accounting concepts.
Economics Education needs a complete revamp at unis.
If economists cannot understand basic accounting entries, then how will they manage risks at Fis?
Doing International Economics, but, not being taught International Marketing, and Relationship Management?
These are just some examples of why many econs students cannot find work.
They cannot relate to practical examples and applied for work in industries.

2020 Economic Complexity Index (ECI) numbers are out today!

How has economic complexity evolved during this decade?

In this thread, I discuss some key trends. /1

#trade #development #economy #EconTwitter
The Economic Complexity Index has become a popular indicator of economic capacity because of its ability to explain variations in economic growth, income inequality, & emissions (for a recent academic review see…).

But the world is changing. /2
1. The rise of East Asia
Back in the year 2000, the only East Asian economy in the top 20 of the ECI rankings was Japan. Today, 4 out of the top 6 economies are East Asian, including Japan (#1), Chinese Taipei (#3), South Korea (#5), and Singapore (#6).

This may be the WORST non-answer in Question Period history. Yesterday I tried multiple time to ask the government about their position on Direction and Control Regulations. Canadian charities deserve answers. They aren't getting them from this government. #cdnpoli #development Image

The Drosophila genome is organized by 2 types of elements: tethers mediate focal contacts, while insulators establish #TAD boundaries. We used genome editing and live transcription imaging to explore their roles in the temporal regulation of #Hox gene expression in the embryo. Image
