Wie kommt man so als #Wisskomm Angesteller in der Industrie unter?
Für alle, die nicht #Hanna sein wollen, aber auch die Wissenschaft lieben.

Ein kleiner 🧵:
1/
Zuerst, meine Position.

Ich habe momentan eine Position als 'Scientific Marketing Specialist', und wie ihr schon erkennen könnt, hat #wisskomm in der Industrie oft mit Marketing zu tun.

Ich weiß nicht wie es euch geht, aber ich hasste immer Marketing wie die Pest.
2/
Zum einen, da man natürlich verkaufen will und viele Marketing Tricks schlichtweg manipulativ, unehrlich oder so Klischee beladen sind, dass es einem das Herz zerreißt.

Zum anderen, da der 'Inhalt' so hohl ist und stinklangweilig. Immer ist alles 'super', man habe 'das Beste'

"The erosion of meaningful culture, the domination of corporate & state media [] the loss of a knowledgable audience. And as one sees w/ the Russophobic response to Ukraine, the entire pandemic only served as a precursor to some complete mental collapse."

"And perhaps the best place (or one of them) to start is with ideas of #autonomy, #AI, and #tech (#media). For #automation and the internet have both, in their own ways, contributed hugely to the layers of mystification surrounding everything in the #capitalist west today."
"#AI seeks to achieve the same control over mental processes that #scientific management sought to achieve over physical #labour [in 2nd industrial revolution] through a process of rationalization, fragmentation, mechanization and routinization."

Just a friendly reminder @moderna_tx told the @SECGov that the @US_FDA defines #mRNA as gene therapy. And called it an unprecedented new category of #medicines tho they really want that #vaccine classification anyways for liability protections & fear the public wouldn’t take it.
They know the #COVID19 #vaccine isn’t a vaccine but human #gene #therapy.
The @US_FDA #fda reaffirmed their definition of modified viral #nucleic acid that alters #CELL Jan 30th 2020 #COVID ImageImageImageImage

1/ Well, tx for the waiting but we had to double check out #scientific findings cause:
It turns out #history of the #extinction of the #dinosaurs has to be rewritten! We found prove that Dinos survived at least until 11/2/2022 !!!

But let's start from the beginning.
puhh, I wanted to start from the beginning and than an surprising attack of vomiting struck me down. I suspect angry competitors poisening me. Anyway, as I said, we found dinos. Apparently they are not that special here. At first this one(1). It was sleeping or mummified,...
... sure yet. we went on (1) till Dolavon, they turn left looking for promising land. till (2). First we found some dino footprints(3). they were pretty fresh for animals supposedly extinct ten of millions of years ago! we knew we were on something big there!...

Coincidence of a series of coincidences ! This thread is for those who love 💘 #coincidences. A 🧵 ... 1/n
It is just a coincidence that the World Economic Forum (#WEF) and Bill Gates et al reviewed a meeting in 2019 and predicted about a possible future viral pandemic, just before the #COVID #pandemic. It must be another plain coincidence that a viral pandemic began exactly 2/n
.. in the place where there is a level-4 #virology laboratory (#Wuhan). It was a coincidence that, whole world followed China's #lockdown policy with ZERO #scientific and #economic basis. 3/n

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to DataReformConsultation@dcms.gov.uk or online here:

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

China unveils 600 kph/370 mph High Speed Superfast #maglevtrain prototype makes public #debut, "Fastest Ground #Vehicle Globally": Report
Using electro-magnetic force, #maglev #TRAIN "levitates" above track & no contact between body and rail.
#Thread #tech #technology #Transport
China has been using maglev technology for almost 2 decades on very limited scale. Maglev train could go from Shanghai to #Beijing in 2.5 hours, versus 5.5 hours by high-speed rail. Self-developed by China and manufactured in coastal city of #Qingdao. @CRRC_global new model.
Cutting-edge #scientific and technological achievement in field of #railway transit in world. Train uses electromagnets to suspend itself above rails, and because there's no friction from contact with rail lines, train can run quietly and smoothly. Unveiled in glittery ceremony.

@RetractionWatch 1. As the Exit strategy via #vaccine became clearer, the journal IJEST #springer @SpringerNature decided to retract my paper on #COVID19, published 19th Nov, received 5 citations (first preprint 17th March, 2020). @Indrroy @C0PE @levent_k_elpen

Paper: tinyurl.com/yzf3h8de
@RetractionWatch @SpringerNature @C0PE @levent_k_elpen 2. The Supplementary section of the paper:
1.Solution slide (attached).
2.Presentation: tinyurl.com/yvsth7sy

Results are consistent if more countries are included. Studies using different statistical techniques also confirmed that. Thus main findings of the study are robust.
@RetractionWatch @SpringerNature @C0PE @levent_k_elpen 3.Retraction letter @SpringerNature mentioned

#solution may not be safe. In order to protect public health, the content has been removed’

Though in the paper, I mentioned the term ‘keeping Comfort level’ (check attached solution slide) and included a caution part in the text

Britain has more job #vacancies than can be filled by the native workforce. That, in a nutshell, is why we need #migrants and millions of them. #Brexit was a con. Watch this 1½-minute video. Read my report on Facebook: bit.ly/3jutvuf LinkedIn: bit.ly/3hjBHLf
It's not just vacancies. Britain has more JOBS than Britons to do them. That's why we need millions of migrants. It really is that simple. Why else would the government offer 3 million Hong Kong citizens the right to come to the UK? Leave voters were misled... big time.
Our country has an ageing population, and a low birth rate. So, the truth is that we have to import young people and skilled (and many unskilled) people to do the jobs that we don’t have enough Britons to fill. The government, of course, knows this only too well.

Thanks @IWS_Network for inviting me to share my story as an #international #immigrant #WomanInSTEM! Throughout this week I will share my journey so far, challenges & triumphs; inviting you to share yours and connect with me if it resonates with you! #VoicesIWS
I grew up in #Delhi #India, a place I still think of as home & where my family still resides. Living in the capital, my parents, sister and I spoke to each other in #tamil, #hindi, & #english. My mom was my first #chemistry teacher. #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network Image
As a teenager I fell in love with the vibrant colors & creative possibilities of the chemistry lab. Nandini ma'am & other excellent teachers, most of whom were #WomenInSTEM at The Mother's International School were my role models. @IWS_Network #VoicesIWS #WomenInSTEM Image

Y #Ivermectin doesn't work
1 #ivermectin craze 4 #COVID19India started in South-America, spread like wildfire to USA/Europe. Heavily criticized in countries upholding #science, didnt find place in guidelines. BUT, nw it reached #India, into minds/hearts of doctors not due to...
2...the #science, but bcoz National institutions such as @aiims_newdelhi/ certain govts @goacm endorse it - without getting into the science of it. Nw, #ivermectin is slowly bcoming nationalist boy scout of #medicine in #India, wrngly endorsed by naïve students/senior professors.
3 Ivermectin is broad-spectrum antiparasitic approved by @US_FDA, proved to be safe at dose of ≤200 µg/kg. In a 60 kg man, the max conventional dose in 12 mg.

The issue with #ayurveda practitioners is that they consider everything #scientific - an attack
An attack on tradition, an attack on culture, an attack on the nation, when, #ayurvedic practice itself, is an attack on #science and #publichealth.
There is a #sanskrit phrase...

...for this, "Kupa manduka" [frog in the Well] - that imagines the Well, to be the whole world and, therefore, becomes pompous. "It is a term of derision for intellectually complacent, 4 some1 who thinks he knows everything ther is 2 know".
This destroys scientific temper!

@jobanmodhaa is prototype 'Frog' in "Ayurvedic Well" and any attempt at saving him frm the Well, wud B considered an 'attack' on his home. Nw, him being a teacher, wil impart this insecurity 2 his students of #Ayurveda & V will be left with nothing, but a well full of frogs.

2. "It started out a good day. The day before I celebrated my 14th anniversary with my husband. The cherry blossom tree we planted in the backyard was exploding in pink taffy balls, and the smell of the lilies he got me floated through the living room as I walked to my desk."
3. "From there it went downhill pretty quickly ... For the last 2 years, I have been trying to protect New York voters, and voters across the country from a particularly “bad” type of voting machine known as a “hybrid”.

What is a “hybrid” voting machine?"

Today, I met with the Chief of Defence Space Administration (DSA), Rear Admiral Williams Kayoda on the proposed establishment of the Nigeria Space Communications Satellite Centre in Ekiti State. This project complements the Ekiti Knowledge Zone initiative (EKZ).
Our administration conceived the #EKZ to take advantage of technology for #scientific research, industrialisation, and #innovation.
We envisioned the EKZ to position Ekiti for such a time as this, and we are pleased that the DSA has found in Ekiti a worthy partner for such an important project.

Removal of HEC chairman: Let us think beyond personalities. The #PoliticalEconomy of #HigherEducation in #Pakistan is such that whoever had challenged the status quo, system would have turned against him/her. I think following led the removal of chairman #HEC
1) #HEC R&D grants system was revamped to fund those projects only which had an impact (determined by peer review). #HEC Closed many projects which failed peer review.
2) set up #disciplinary panels for peer review headed by well-reputed scholars such as Dr Zulfiqar Bhutta, Dr Noman ul Haq, Dr Tariq Hassan, Dr Sarosh Lodhi etc., to make fund/no-fund decisions in Committee.

Dr.Thakur, this is a huge issue. Big industry. Powerful lobby. They crush critique wit money power. I hav experienced it first hand.

Here is my story.

Last year March, I published this article based on my experience wit a patient who died after consuming herbalife products
2/
It went viral on @Twitter
This caught eye of the big company who then proceeded to email me directly regarding my study, asking for proof. I said all my data was in the paper (samples sourced samples frm Amazon from an 'associate seller' 4 analysis)
3/
They sent a direct letter (written by a prominent professor at Univ of Guelph, Canada / who works with the company) to the publisher #elsevier outlining 'problems' with my study, asking 4 'retraction'. The publisher suggested we provide a rebuttal - which we did, 24 page long.
