1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

This is Leonardo da Vinci's design for a 'smart city' that was centuries ahead of its time
» weforum.org/agenda/2019/05…
Leonardo wanted a comfortable and spacious city, with well-ordered streets and architecture. Today, his ideas actually suggest a way forward for urban planning.
A new study shows just how beneficial remote working can be

Companies that let their workers decide where and when to do their jobs increase employee productivity, reduce turnover, and lower organizational costs.

Where people work the longest – and shortest

People end up producing just as much, with higher quality and creativity, and they are also more loyal to the organizations that are willing to give them flexibility to care about their lives outside of work.

The #phyphox app from @rwth_phyphox gives you direct access to the output of many #sensors in your smartphone. Next time you have a long ✈️flight, quantify turbulence or just check on your phone when the toilet rush is over. (Warning: #scicomm #physics thread ahead!👇) 1/n
Your #phone is full of #sensors (microphone, camera, temperature, GPS, light sensors, magnetometers,…), including air pressure sensors and accelerometers. The pressure at cruising altitude is about 80% of the pressure at sea level. 2/n
That’s why your crisps package expands after take-off and the empty plastic bottle appears auto-crushed after landing. The pressure sensor can be used to estimate elevation when being on earth. But it is so sensitive it feels when airplane toilets are flushed. 3/n

This weekend, demonstrators attempted to tear down some of the city's 50 newly-installed "smart lamp posts" - which have #cameras & #sensors - in a #protest against perceived government #surveillance.

#HKprotests #FacialRecognition #AntiSurveillance
Smart lamp posts facing residential areas will not have video cameras installed to protect the privacy of citizens. <br />

As state #surveillance becomes more advanced - Activists, designers & artists around the world are inventing creative ways to avoid detection. #HKprotests #HongKongProtesters #AntiSurveillance
Hoping to raise awareness about the hyper-militarization of #police and all this technology being using against protesters, #PedroOliveira and #XuediChen created a slick-looking #protest kit.

So excited that the paper that is the culmination of my #PhD came out in @ScienceTM today! As the COVER story! Can't wait to share this 6-yr labor of love with the world. Here are some of the main takeaways from the paper:

#BigDay #HealthTech #PortableMRI #HydrationSensor
MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool but it is too expensive ($1.5M) and time-consuming (10-60min) to use on a regular basis. We developed a portable NMR sensor that can harness the diagnostic power of quantitative MRI at a fraction of the time (<1min) and cost ($1k).
It is not necessary to generate images in order to take quantitative magnetic resonance (relaxometry) measurements. Removing the need to generates images makes the hardware simpler, smaller, and cheaper.

I wrote about this for the @MIT_alumni blog: alum.mit.edu/slice/grad-lif…

@phenrikand 1/ I’ve been in the digital cash and eMoney space since 1999 for co-design bit.ly/NavyCash It was centralised command control money digital USD on an EMV card where the backend -> every transaction traced & tracked by float manager @jpmorgan debitcard ATMs via @Mastercard
@phenrikand @jpmorgan @Mastercard 2/ Every Navy base & every ship in a flotilla was like an island🌴 at sea (at any point in time it could have only local and no or limited comms back to treasury) Similar to today’s offchain and onchain networks eventually reconciliation would happen. DoubleSpends manual captured
@phenrikand @jpmorgan @Mastercard 3/ Proof of Work Blockchains tend to centralisation. The top5 PoW 💥 Blockchains generally work 💪and have a huge bounty on their embedded value across their networks PoS and others not so much
