#NSPNsymposium18 Dalal Najib
@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

@theNASciences โ‰  @NSF! The National academy is independent from govt and provides #scienceadvice and #evidence for #scipol

At the @CAPSACSP panel on post-docs w/ @Joe_S_Sparling @BerubeDo Rachel Fernandez, @krishnahegde3 @DrHaverfield #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @Joe_S_Sparling @CAPSACSP says you lose money for every year you train as a postdoc (on average). PhDs that go straight to the workforce are often more financially stable. Post-docs lose retirement income, forego wages (esp now they pay tax) despite high #talent
Due to unionization and internal funding, there are now more post-docs with employee status. This palliates some of those issues, but externally funded and govt post-docs are still behind esp since they are not employees, no benefits despite taxation - @Joe_S_Sparling #CSPC2018

Panel 2, on granting agencies and #citizenscience w/ @mgfortin_rd @NSERC_CRSNG + Ted Hewitt @SSHRC_CRSH + Serge Marchand @FRQS1 + Louise Poissant @FRQSC + Michael Strong @CIHR_IRSC #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @mgfortin_rd says #citizenscience and participative science is incredibly important. This isn't only including public in research, it's engaging communities who have knowledge incl #indigenous traditional knowledge.
... Current project ongoing, is a northern community that wants to better document the status of their natural resources (air quality, water) and to analyze the impact of #climatechange & other human impacts on these. There is added value to including these communities. #CSPC2018

#CSPC2018 panel on #scienceadvice starts!

@DLEKirkwood chief scientist of @NRCan says issue is not do much making sure science is valued in govt (seems it is) but to ensure evidence is used in policy. Plus, policy is inherently quicker than science.

#scipol #canpoli #cdnsci
... The challenge for new science advisors and chief scientists is to ensure that the need for #EBDM in policy is understood across the department, across govt. #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 Sarah Gallagher @csa_asc says building relationships btw scientists and policymakers (#scicomm skills helpful here!) is key

#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

Starting "Voices without Frontiers" #VoicesIWS
A program by @IWS_Network to promote awareness about the challenges & lessons learned by #Immigrant and #International #WomenInScience

I was born & raised in Chicoral, Colombia. A tiny town in the middle of the Andes Cordillera.
I attended Nuestra Seรฑora del Rosario school, located in Espinal, 15Km away from Chicoral. Due to the high heat by noon, all schools start really early back home. This meant, I had to wake up at 5am to attend school every morning since I was 4 years old. #VoicesIWS
I did well in math and science in elementary and high school, so I chose to study clinical microbiology. Although coming from a low-middle income family, I was able to attend university, thanks to my parentsโ€™ effort to prioritize education over other commodities. #VoicesIWS

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germanyโ€”and the comparison is not encouraging.

By: @Anis_Shivani for @AlterNet
Thread โœ”
1/
Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
ใ€ฐ๏ธ Benito Mussolini

2/
Iโ€™d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREADโœ”
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

On February 27, 1933 the German Parliament building burned, Adolf #Hitler rejoiced, and the #Nazi era began.

#Hitler, who had just been named head of a #government that was legally formed after the democratic #elections of the previous November, seized the opportunity to change the system. โ€œThere will be no mercy now,โ€ he exulted. โ€œAnyone standing in our way will be cut down.โ€

The next day, at Hitlerโ€™s advice and urging, the #German #president issued a decree โ€œfor the protection of the people and the state.โ€

1/ What's wrong with #lawfirm compensation? Let @jordan_law21 count the ways.As predicted ๐Ÿ”ฎ (by me, about what I was going to do ๐Ÿ˜‡), a #tweetstorm. First the link: law21.ca/2018/09/how-coโ€ฆ
2/ Next, my favorite #micdrop ๐ŸŽค quote: "law firms incentivize their lawyers to act in ways that are counter-productive to lwayers' happiness, clients' satisfaction and the firms' effectiveness." and ๐Ÿ’ฅgoes the ๐Ÿงจ-- more #truthbombs follow.
3/ ๐Ÿ’ฏ agree that legacy compensation systems (and the attendant infrastructure of #tech, #process, #policy, governance as well as resulting #culture) emphasizes #lawyer effort over #client outcomes (namely, the billable hour). BUT I add here: what would be a better #alternative?

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialistsย - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.ย

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.

1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 ๐Ÿ“–

Many things might spring to mind when someone says the word assessment, so this thread aims to clarify that our Assessment Lead Programme is nothing to do with data drops or tracking systems but everything to do with using the craft of assessment to support teaching & learning
When we talk about assessment, weโ€™re referring to a planned, purposeful process that produces valuable information that leads to better decisions about #teaching & #learning
By supporting you to make your assessment practice & approach more effective & efficient, you can do more with less for a more manageable & meaningful use of #assessment

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled โ€˜National Strategy for Artificial Intelligenceโ€. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/โ€ฆ
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/โ€ฆ). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n
