1/ #Empathy tweetorial: I overheard an awesome narrative building, empathic conversation enroute to the hospital today. Two #interns merged behind me (both wearing masks, btw):
Him: “How has your week been so far?”
Her: “It’s been pretty good but sorta overwhelming”
2/It could have ended there with him saying, “That sucks,” or “Me too."
Instead, he said, “Why was it overwhelming? What did you have to do?”
Her: “I went to meetings that reminded me of how many things I have forgotten. (insert details about what she had forgotten)”
3/He could have said, "Yuck, I hate meetings."
Instead he said, “Yeah, that can be scary. What else did you have to do?”
Her: “I took care of some patients with illnesses that I have never taken care of before like COVID. (insert details about patients and illnesses)”

I'm an #Egyptologist trained at @unibirmingham specializing in #Theban #tombdecoration of the 1st millennium BCE. For the past 9 years, I've shifted my focus to #Nile travel journals in late C19 and early C20. @nelcuw @ebadiary #dayofdh2020
I work with undergrad interns who help me #transcribe #primarysource material written by travelers to #Egypt including #archaeologists, #artists and the #hiddenwomen...wives, mistresses, secretaries and administrators. Our work began with the unpublished diaries of #EmmaBAndrews
We spent a couple of years to transcribe all 19 volumes into #plaintext which we then #encoded in #XML using @TEIconsortium guidelines which we use as the basis for #NamedEntityRecognition of people, places, boats...our #XSLT script returns an alphabetized index of all this info

I'd now like to highlight some of the fantastic projects under the @newbook_project umbrella! @nelcuw @ds_uw @SvobodaDiaries @ebadiary @SimpsonCenter @UWArtSci #dayofdh2020
The Joseph Mathia #SvobodaDiaries project is the multi-media publication of available diaries remaining from a collection kept by Baghdad resident J. M. Svoboda, from 1862 to 1908. @SvobodaDiaries
#interns have recently redeveloped the project website where you can view and download the diary material svobodadiariesproject.org @SvobodaDiaries

Thinking about a low cost easy to manufacture home test kit for #Coronavirus. Outline: #Nasal_swab (Q-tip) w/ freeze dried reagents for isothermal #DNA amplification with #COVID19 primers. Colorimetric readout by #iOS or #Android #App w/ #geolocation & #HIPPA compliant reporting.
Read-out would be in minutes - timer in App - read by camera in your smart phone. No other machines. Links to telemedicine groups for positive results. Built in positive control - e.g. no color = improper test, green NEGATIVE, red POSITIVE.
I’ve done my best creating when faced by a challenge. Next gen sequencing when my son went to new born intensive care - #454 @iontorrent. Ultrasound on a chip @ButterflyNetInc when wanted to monitor my daughter’s kidneys.

What do #interns do in the Directorate of Science & Technology? How can #STEM #students drive innovation that affects the national security of our nation? We spoke with an undergraduate scholarship intern, “Alice,” about her experience. #NationalSTEMDay

Alice: "This is a great #internship because you’re treated like an employee...They want to enable you and challenge you, so they put you on teams and give you work that impacts the #mission."

Alice: "I previously didn’t know that CIA recruited #engineers. My #STEM background has laid a foundation for all positions I’ve held within CIA, and many of my project leads have been happy to expand my knowledge further."
