I've been thinking a lot over the past few months about the fine art of science #journalism and communication. How do we reach people? How do we get them thinking? How do we inform them in such a way that they can have a say about our common future as responsible citizens? 1/9
I have discussed this with colleagues, among others from the international science and media Festival @silbersalzhalle. The result is a fantastic conference this Friday and Saturday with incredibly exciting and inspiring examples and case studies of immersive storytelling. 2/9
I can’t wait to hear the keynote by Francesca @franpanetta, one of the first journalists to explore immersive technologies and their potential for communication. She will be opening her treasure box of the richest experiences and puts us on the right path for our future projects.

In case you missed it, last week was the #OurLandOurNature alternative congress, which finished on Friday with a #protest in Marseille, France, where we were joined by a number of other orgs including @xrFrance, @amisdelaterre & @yfcmarseille.

Despite the torrential rain ⛈️ the turn out was big, showing how strong the resistance is towards the false solutions to tackle #ClimateChange being proposed at the #IUCNcongress.

The plan to turn 30% of the world into Protected Areas by 2030 (30x30) is a distraction from the real causes of #environmental destruction - instead it puts a price on #nature & allows big business to profit.

In this thread students @MQLinguistics
@Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

⬇️⬇️⬇️Favorite facts about #literacies ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Learning about message sticks is my favorite. When thinking about message sticks from a #literacies perspective, they seem very modern.…
It is intriguing to learn that humans weren't made to #read and that it is possible due to brain plasticity. It is also fascinating that #reading #Chinese script and alphabetic #writing activates different brains areas

Some personal news: I've left the #IvoryTower and I couldn't be happier after 7 years of struggles. I've struggled to share my experiences honestly, because I'm afraid of being seen as a debbie downer. A thread. TLDR: Academia is not worth my time anymore. #leavingacademia #EMCR
Practicing academic science is a privilege. Academia isn't easy - for the wrong reasons. Doing the science, finding the collaborators and making discoveries that rewrite textbooks, developing tools to tackle new problems, developing new approaches - that's why I was in it.
I had a good time. I'm trained as a chemical engineer, who did a bit of process systems engineering, then decided to do molecular biophysics. During the GFC I took up a technician position and eventually stayed in the lab to do biochemistry and biophysics for my PhD.

Thank you so much to @DrPraegers for having me to discuss the effects of plant-based diets on the #gut #microbiome! Here are my slides for all to see! 😃


#medicine #medtwitter #diet #nutrition #GITwitter #GI #guthealth #health
Just as we do things for heart health and brain health, our #microbiome is an organ of its own (the size of a 🥭), so we need to take care of it!

#Bharat Civilisation #Dharma family has Hindu,Jain,Baudha & Sikh

#Religion of West is different

‘Unity in Diversity’ isn’t just Indian but #Indigenous #ChildrenOfCivilisation

Beautiful #Diversity within Incredible Civilisational #Unity

If Universal acceptance #Indigenous #Bharat calls itself #Right Wing,we equate us to Abrahamic ‘Supremacy & Exclusivity’ which we ain’t!

We then certify Colonial ecosystem abusing us as Liberal,Secular or Elite to Colonised Jerks,which then gets validated by WesternWhiteMasters! ImageImageImageImage

So I’m in the @safeway with the little one. Mom wants chips, either Plain or BBQ. We’re on the chip aisle and lil man not only goes for the @ruffles but he grabs a bag of Lime & Jalapeno. Me: “Lime and Jalapeno?!?! Lil Man, them chips gone be nasty asf!” But then I thought…
with all the many bags of chips on the chip aisle, Lil Man gravitated to the one lone bag with a picture of somebody that looked like him, @antdavis23. And then I stood back and scanned the chip aisle and said...
“Wow, you mean #Ruffles is the ONLY brand featuring a Person of the Global Majority???” That’s absolutely unbelievable to me!

SASAC's Hindutva Harassment Field Manual offers a section specifically for students -- whether they are witnessing a Hindutva attack, concerned about hate on campus, or just curious.

#THREAD #Hindutva #students #diversity #inclusion #campus
This section opens with a brief definition of Hindutva (for a fuller definition:…)

Hindutva is a far right political ideology. It can seem far away when you're attending college in the US, but Hindutva places pressure on students' self-expression.
The section offers a series of questions that can help interested students identify Hindutva influences on their campus and the harms posed to the diversity and inclusivity we all seek to cultivate on college campuses.

[1/9] Ahead of #COP26, these @royalsociety policy briefs lay out 12 science & technology areas key for enabling #netzero.
Inadvertently the briefs also lay out clear lack of representation in #STEM and #academia
Reduced inequalities is part of netzero solution #SDG10
✅120+ authors from 30+ countries were included in these briefs, plus another ~40 reviewers. Impressive. ❌Less impressive is the representation within the list of contributors:
🌍the authors are predominantly from the global north
♀️ <25% of the authors are women
[3/9] In fact, 3 out of the 12 briefings are all-male authors (briefing 3: #lowcarbon heating & cooling, 5: #CCS, 12: #ClimateAction).
2 of these (briefings 3 & 5) have all-male reviewers, also.
⁉️Where are the incredible women working in these topics? Their absence is visible.

I will be live tweeting from the @HSBC AGM, where HSBC's management-backed climate resolution will be voted on

Expect lots of questions on the #EACOP pipeline, biodiversity, fossil fuels & other ESG issues from @ShareAction & many others

Let's go 👇

#HSBCAGM #AGMactivism
HSBC's Chair of the Board Mark Tucker opens the AGM by reflecting on the past year & the future ahead - a world of uncertainty

He reminds everyone of the reason why HSBC was founded: to connect East & West

He goes through HSBC's future priorities, many of which are ESG-oriented
E.g. He recognises that HSBC has not done enough in the past to foster diversity - but this will change

He ends his speech talking about the need to speed up the transition to net-zero

He recognises that we "need to reduce and ultimately eradicate our reliance on fossil fuels"

"Performative #Diversity" doesn't describe ineffective practices, but rather practices done ineffectively. It's an essential distinction that many folks in their haste to condemn shoddy work often overlook.
❌ "Unconscious bias trainings are performative diversity."
✔️ "Unconscious bias trainings, when one-off, not tied to business outcomes, not centered on actionable behavior change, and not followed by accountability efforts, become performative."
❌ "Corporate statements on social issues are performative diversity."
✔️ "Corporate statements on social issues, if not translated into business commitments on concrete timelines with real consequences for failure, become performative."

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader
