The flood of foreign Govt visitors post-Ukraine, suggests, that they are finally trying to understand #India & #GOI #policy from the "horses mouth" (instead of seeing it through the biases of neo-colonialists and their Indian agents).

Today here at @iamscicomm I'm focusing a bit on my world - the world of science adjacent #sciart and #sciviz folks who support researchers with graphic #scicomm.

I mentioned yesterday I stared down a STEM career path, but found what I really loved was communicating that science!
So where does a person go from there? For the record, everyone thought this was a poor career choice. I
1. Dropped my minor
2. Dropped the weed-out pre-med courses
3. Started drawing every day

Asking advice is important when considering a #STEM career. I had access to a lot of people in research and medicine to talk to and help me.

Unfortunately, this is not as easy for everyone. How do you make yourself accessible for students or potential entrants to your field? ❓ The road from student to pr...

For as long as I remember, I've loved science and also science fiction. 🚀 Science came first for me, but for many, it's been the other way around.

SF is great for inspiring future scientists and igniting interest in science. Luckily, #scicomm & #outreach has begun to notice! âŹ‡ïž Image
I'm currently leading the 'Science Fiction as An Astrobiology Outreach & Education Tool' at @EAIastrobiology. We used reprint SF stories accompanied by original science essays in 'Strangest of All', released last spring to aid outreach amidst lockdowns.
The positive response prompted us to edit a bigger, more ambitious print book of original astrobiological SF and essays. Titled Life Beyond Us, it's just funded on kickstarter and will be published next fall around the launch of @esa's Rosalind Franklin! Image

In the last few years I have become increasingly outspoken to the detriment of certain professional relationships & at some reputational risk - in particular holding fellow so-called “model minority” accountable on harm

we as a society MUST stop killing & harming ppl
There are 1001 ways to avoid difficult, uncomfortable change.

Those who (I’m going to be frank) are lazy, selfish or lack sufficient ability or courage, will oppose change, often also mislabeling other people either as lazy “moochers” or aggressors.

#BLM #blacklivesmatter
A culture of civility only empowers the true aggressor. It allows silencing and mislabeling of anyone who speaks up regarding system level harm or interpersonal harm.

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

.. QAnon hijacks the architecture of social media..

..By controlling acceptable forms of information, QAnon traps its members in a downward spiral of radicalization.”

“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe
Above is not limited to academic articles

There has been an increase in #antiAsianhate crimes
targeting of #GOTV by minorities
including this attempt to intimidate me for my GOTV, by armed right wing

There was the #Nashvillebombing (with QAnon beliefs)

What are the different #covidtests, how do they work, and how can we interpret them? Here is a thread below:

#scicomm #Outreach #covid19 @SACNASUtah #AcademicChatter
Test 1: Molecular test (the most common is Rt-#PCR, or #pcrtest ). This test scans your sample for traces of specific #SARSCoV2 genetic sequences to see if they are easily found in your system. 1/n
The #PCR test result includes a value called “Cycle Threshold” (or #ct ). This basically measures how long it takes for the test to identify the #SARSCoV2 -specific genetic sequence in your sample. 2/n

When you want to know why
-women & minorities leave medicine
-why research lacks data to serve needs of anyone not white & male
-why different mortality rates in patients by gender, race, SES

this is why

This is #MedBikini “#professionalism” again

Is insidious
but highly effective
-different access

As women, LGBTQ, minorities, disabled enter or advance in medicine, this professor’s public stance will be cited to mislabel having #ethics as “lacking #professionalism”

#medbikini is not one article
=attitude of many physicians
=drives this

We saw this happen with @ayshakhoury and @uche_blackstock and so many others. It especially happens at midcareer to WOC, especially black. Also if Muslim, LGBTQ, disabled, #mentalhealth

Fantastic #AAASmtg workshop from @scicomm_jc on values-based communication to reach audiences who are undecided on science issues! #scicommjc #scicomm #outreach Some key takeaways 👇
Values are concepts or beliefs that guide actions and decisions. People prioritize different values. Values-based communication intentionally matches the values in a message to the values held by an audience.
To learn your audience's values, listen! Find out what questions they ask, what motivates them. "A good science communicator listens more than they talk."

1/3 On Sat 6 Feb, our @ATMedics Whitechapel Health Centre team delivered an excellent #CV19 #vaccination service @elondonmosque. Several patients said they only came for their #COVIDVaccination as it was in the local mosque, being delivered by local GPs.
2/3 A 107 yr old lady attended, her daughter told us she had been hesitant but felt more comfortable since it was being delivered in her local community centre.

Awesome to collaborate with the #Mosque. We hope this will encourage more local people to come forward when invited... Image

This is very important. I had been preferably using Black gifs for representation.

The nature of #communication is that how you intend it and how others may receive it will pass through many other filters as well as sources of trauma.

When in doubt err on side of caution.
While I have not received any feedback that my gif use is inappropriate one should not wait to be told. Going to be sure to apply an additional lens and filter.

Caution: Some who call themselves #communication “experts” may be about promotion rather than reliable #DEI or results
In particular, when you look at who to trust or emulate on #SciComm or #MedTwitter, take note of who is effective at communicating their point, does not need to delete, can post on important topics with least misinterpretation, while maintaining the broadest audience.

#Sunspots! They're back!

This is my view of Active Region #AR2778 on the #Sun, yesterday 2020-10-28.

Fun fact: Sunspots are temporary, dark, and *cold*! (in relative terms)

Fun fact: There are MORE today!
(Go look:

#outreach #scicomm #spaceweather Active Region 2778
The previous image of #AR2778 was processed into false color, using RGB curves.

The input data, started from the actual monochrome capture (using a green photographic filter), like this.

#solar #astrophotography #sun #outreach #spaceweather Solar Active Region AR 2778
Just for fun, here is a close-cropped view of this #sunspot group. It's continuously changing, as they do, but it's obvious from hour to hour.

Fun on the #Sun!

If you're at an educational institution, check to see if there's already a group that does outreach in your area of interest. There may be a student group or a local chapter of a professional society in your field, which may already have outreach activities in place 3/7 A college campus with a gothic style building and green gras

It’s been a long and heavy night. So I won’t stay on too much longer. But on the topic of outreach: meet your target audience where they are #scicomm
Work with existing groups. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Work with after school programs, go to Black and Brown neighborhoods, work in under resourced classrooms. #Outreach #scicomm
Justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) in STEM starts with children and their families in your own town. Ask yourself: Where does your outreach actually teach #BlackMammalogists Image

Day 1: I use twitter @melaniejward to keep up with space news and advertise events I run, but still am still relatively new to the twitter game. I'll start the the week with this about me thread that can double as a highlight for some amazing space happenings in Australia!
One of the aforementioned events happens to be coming up, a #women in #engineering highlight in honour of #WomensHistoryMonth. As young professionals officer for @aiaa I've been arranging this panel for two months, and very excited to be moderating this Thursday. #WomenInSTEM
Been passionate about space since I was a kid, even went to #spacecamp at the Challenger Learning Center. This is where I met Dr Sally Ride, she was the second grown up (the first being my mum) that encouraged my dream not to go to #space but instead to support those who do.

Yesterday we talked you through the jellybean illusion. You probably experienced a couple of things, let's see if you agree with the following...
At STEP 3, while chewing with nose pinched, what did you taste? Probably just some sweet, maybe a bit of sourness, right?
And you probably could not identify any specific flavor, correct?
And then after releasing your nose, and exhaling through your nose, didn't the flavor all of a sudden just jump out at you. Only NOW you could "taste" lemon or orange or strawberry or whatever characteristic flavor.
