Typical problem in #psychology and #education research: Study shows that a program has little/no effect. How do the authors (who are invested in the program) react? They try to salvage it and argue that it really does work. 🙄
Later passages in the article:
"Future studies should examine...moderator variables to better understand with whom and under what conditions Second Step differentially impacts academic outcomes."
"Researchers should continue to explore the impact of Second Step..."
This is a study with the strongest effect size for the intervention was d = .126. Of 28 outcomes, only 4 (14.3%) were statistically significant (p < .05). But it never occurs to the authors that teaching "social emotional learning" doesn't improve academics noticeably.

Theresa May's machiavelic plans have to stop.

If she really believes her negotiations are that Strong and Stable, she should stop this embarrassing political circus and openly go for her No-Deal #Brexit plan, instead of sneakily engineering it.

We know that's your plan. 1/10
When she decided to put forward her support to #BradyAmendment, she knew it would be rejected by the EU negotiators.
It was even said yesterday before she decided to support it.
But it is a sneaky way to put forward a No-Deal #Brexit and later putting the blame on the EU. 2/10
The #Backstop was negotiated BY the UK to comply with UK's red lines:
✔ No hard border (#GoodFridayAgreement)
❌ No customs unions
❌ No single market
❌ No freedom of movement
The EU wanted a soft #Brexit. So no Backstop. 3/10

The landmark #SacharCommittee report that collected & analysed data on the social,economic & educational status of Muslims in India is now available in our resource section. Specifically,it tried to gauge if & why Muslims are under-represented in govt departments & other spheres.
Here are some of its findings. ruralindiaonline.org/resources/soci…
The 2001 Census showed that #literacy rates were low among Muslims, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The perception that religious conservatism among Muslims is a major factor for not accessing #education is incorrect. As with many Indians, the main reason for ‘educational backwardness’ of Muslims is abject poverty, which forces many children to drop out of school.

Here’s a thread that nobody asked for comparing today’s urgent global problems to dim sum.
1/14 Nuclear Weapons v. Xiao Long Bao: Treat with respect or face intense explosion, third degree burns and worse. Experts disagree on how to handle in a never-ending debate. Also, it’s a challenging dish to make. #globalzero #nuclearweapons
2/14 Climate Crisis v. Chicken Feet: Look, you can’t soft sell this. It’s not chicken “change” for chrissakes. It’s the most intimidating item on the table, and there’s no disguising it for what it is. Deniers are vocal. #climatechange #globalwarming

0/ The #cryptocurrency/#blockchain ecosystem is finishing the week in a flurry!

Below, I've condensed 19 of Friday's #crypto developments into one single #Twitter thread. All for your convenience. Enjoy!
1/ 🗽 New York State's D.F.S. granted both @LibertyX (fiat-to-#bitcoin service) and @RobinhoodApp (#crypto exchange) a #BitLicense to operate their respective businesses in the state of #NewYork. The latter also received a money transmitter license. dfs.ny.gov/about/press/pr…
2/ 📊 Social, peer-to-peer user #data network @3Boxdb has partnered with @AlethioEthstats to deliver the first #Ethereum block explorer with built-in social profiling functionality.

Can't wait to give this a try. Such a neat, value-adding integration for the budding #web3 space!

Little more than a week before January ends, and I’d really like to be at 1K followers. Here’s a little bit about me in a thread so you can make an informed decision about whether following our campaign for the US Senate to take the seat held by @KamalaHarris is worth your time;
1) I am for #MedicareforAll/#M4A. Here’s a pic of me in Sacramento, supporting the passage of #SB562 which would have guaranteed #healthcare coverage for all #California and provided universal healthcare. It is the moral choice, it saves us money and we support a nationwide plan.
I am for broadening the pathway to legal citizenship for all people interested in coming to #America and allowing us to prosper. I have marched with @UFWupdates @UFWF in the past and plan on doing so in the future. Rights of Mexican-Americans are my rights, porque somos familia.

Meet Jack Ma, Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group Holding, and Member of the Board of Trustees, World Economic Forum. Jack Ma is a Young Global Leader Alumni as well as a Foundation Board member of the Global Shapers Community.
Jack Ma says only by changing education can our children compete with machines. Robots could replace 800 million jobs by 2030. Education is a big challenge now. If we do not change the way we teach, 30 years from now we will be in trouble.
Because the way we teach - the things we teach our kids are the things from the past 200 years - it is knowledge based. And we cannot teach our kids to compete with machines - they are smarter. Teachers must stop teaching knowledge.

I'm excited to announce my new position as the Director of the Stanford-Synapse Brainwave Learning Center! My new role is central to a unique partnership between the Educational Neuroscience Initiative @Stanford and @SynapseSchool (an independent K-8 school).
1/6
Since I began my training in educational #neuroscience, I have been adamant that progress in this field would require people specifically trained in #mind, #brain and #education to take positions outside of the traditional academic track & focus on challenges unique to MBE.
2/6
We need spaces dedicated to rigorously investigating the questions at the heart of #MBE, where stakeholders (researchers, teachers, parents, administrators, and students) can work together. I am thrilled to be involved in first-of-its-kind initiative that does just that.

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣
@IWS_Network #VoicesIWS
I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

(1)QARMY🕵So you #think the #QArmy is just a bunch of #people sitting at the #computer doing nothing?

You dont think of us as #DigitalSoldiers?

Do you think we are wasting our #time and not doing anything to help?

If so then please keep reading this #Thread

I agree with the sentiment but I cannot emphasise enough that #homelessness, #foodbanks, #ChildPoverty, #HostileEnvironment all existed before #brexit. They are not a consequence of #brexit but #Conservatives policy. It doesn't have to be this way, it's a political choice ->
Before someone from #FBPE jumps in and says "that's because focus has been on brexit" ... not it isn't. This is #Conservative policy. The privatisation of #NHS, the changes in #Education, reductions in #LegalAid ... where has the #EU been in stopping all this? It hasn't.
There has been a constant drive to reform society from health to education, none of which is about addressing the issues of inequality.

(Thread) Because events in #Alberta politics happened at such a rapid pace, I decided to use my Facebook timeline to compile all the controversial incidents and scandals involving the #UCP in 2018 - because there was a lot. #ableg #abpoli (1/48)
Methodology: I'm not compiling silly gaffes that went nowhere (such as Jason Kenny's finger bowl comment), incidents like "So & so said something stupid on Facebook five years ago" unless the person became a candidate... #ableg #abpoli (2/48)
...nor am I compiling things that cannot be directly linked to the #UCP, such as the hoodies calling for @JustinTrudeau to be executed or the ongoing death threats to him and @RachelNotley - even though there is likely a link. (3/48)

THREAD de mise au point sur les bébés dont les décès sont imputés, de façon fallacieuse, au #végétalisme ou au #véganisme. À dérouler comme un cotillon pendant les fêtes.

⬇️⬇️⬇️
Quand un bébé nourri au lait végétal de consommation courante, dont les parents (véganes ou pas) traitent tous les problèmes de #santé avec de l'homéopathie, refusent les suivis et soins médicaux ainsi que la #vaccination, décède ; le problème n'est pas le véganisme.
Le vrai problème est cette disposition d'esprit qui implique de remettre sa propre vie - et celle des personnes dont on a la charge - entre les mains de croyances, d'informations erronées, de rumeurs, de #fakemed : #homéopathie, #aromathérapie, #FleursDeBach, #radiesthésie...

#Education
A University professor once wrote an expressive and Avery apt message to his students at the doctorate, masters and bachelors levels and placed it at the entrance in the university he taught in..
The #Message reads as below..

“Collapsing any nation does not require use of atomic bombs or the use of long range missiles. It only requires lowering the quality of education and allowing cheating in the examinations by the students".
The #patient dies in the hands of such #doctors

And the buildings #collapse in the hands of such #engineers

And the money is #lost in the hands of such #accountants

And #humanity dies in the hands of such religious #productivity scholars ...

This is the face of #depression.
Today I'm going public in the hope that will help me to fight back.
No one can guess from that picture that I cried for hours that day and had dark thoughts.
It never stops.
#mentalhealth matters, even if not visible.
#MentalHealthAwareness 1/
No one can guess that I had to have medical leave and I am still followed by psychotherapists.
It's invisible, and I am good at hiding it until it becomes too hard. But don't be fooled by fake smiles.
Dig deeper. Listen. Be prepared to listen uncomfortable emotional stuff. 2/
It's been a year now, I begged for help and I realised now that it's hopeless and easier to discard victims than deal with #workplace #bullying. 3/

On my recent trip back home, i decided to visit the areas that had gone through the anti-encroachment drive and interview the people in those areas. The stories we heard about families being forced onto the streets are, unfortunately, true.

#Pakistan #Karachi #AntiEncroachment
Meet Interviewee 1: Ahmed, aged 13. It is nothing new to see Child Labour in Pakistan but Ahmed was recently forced to start working at his uncle’s Ajrak shop because his father’s small shop had been torn down by the government. Before that? He went to school.

#ChildLabour
Pictured here is Interviewee 2: Ahmed’s Uncle Sajjad, packing dozens of unsold Ajraks awaiting the imminent threat of the #government’s anti-encroachment drive. He had taken over this shop in Abdullah Market, Saddar from his late father 7 years ago and paid the rent ever since.

Outtakes from the #DNC Executive Meeting in #PuertoRico (thread)

Chair promises a 2020 process that is fair. Will release a protocol on debates soon; expect debates in summer 2019 . Will decide by March 2019 the Host City for 2020 Convention: Houston, Miami Beach, or Milwaukee.
We have worked hard to rebuild trust on our presidential process. Rules and Bylaws Cttee working with early states on rules. A key rule change ends superdelegates voting 1st round absent consensus candidate BUT elected officials can still be PLEOs & not run against constituents.
The PLEO Party Leader Elected Official designation is for pledged delegates who are Members of Congress Governors etc who want a first round #DNC convention vote but don’t want to run against activist to get there.

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
