U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday announced a plan to wipe out some #student #debt. Up to 20 million borrowers will see their debt completely eliminated.
The debt cancellation is reserved for those who earn less than $125,000 per year or families who earn less than $250,000 per year.
The total amount of outstanding student debt in the U.S. reached $1.75 trillion by the end of 2021, according to the Federal Reserve.

Modern music is my passion. Musicians are collaborators.
*Starting in 2019, I’ve been working towards making an album of David Jaeger’s viola music.

This thread (1 tweet per day) will
feature all aspects of the process.

*actually the story starts in 2014, maybe 1986?

In 1986 a (vinyl) record fell into my hands…

I was in high school in Hamilton, Ontario and was playing weekly in the McMaster Symphony Orchestra. It was a community organization, however the standard was very high for a mostly amateur group. I was truly out of my league, seeing Shostakovich’s 5th Symphony on my stand.

Thread : What care a #law #student should take while sitting in library, and digesting law #books? How should he navigate through thousands of books in law library of #college? What books to read and what to ignore?

1) The topic of this thread itself is complicated.
2/ But once I was also a law student. (In 1977). All the law books in law college library amazed me! It looked as if each book was radiating powers of the good over the evil. I had dreams of power and wealth and these books looked like my passport to a golden future.
3/ Do not blame me, if after reading this thread you become demotivated to read those AMAZING law books.

I may have tell you something which may not be found in ANY law book of ANY law college.

#IchBinArmutsbetroffen und habe lange verinnerlicht, dass ich mich darüber nicht beklagen darf, weil ich #Student|in bin. Ich war schon froh, wenn mir jemand nicht unterstellte, Studentenleben wäre immer leicht, S seien alle faul, partysüchtig, reich, unreif, Snobs.

Hinzu kam auch wiederholt #Ableismus, da ich chronisch krank bin.

Ich wollte also die Vorurteile beschränken und nicht noch #Klassismus hören.

Aber wir müssen klarstellen, dass #IchBinArmutsbetroffen für keine Gruppe normal und okay gefunden werden darf!

Studieren ist nicht für alle so günstig möglich, wie viele meinen. Wie viel es kostet und wie es finanzierbar ist, ist komplex, hängt v vielen Faktoren ab, u.a. örtliche Miethöhe, Alter, Zugang zum BAföG (bisher eher schlecht, dazu findet ihr viel via google).

Tools for your PhD Journey...

I have found a list of “22” things which I have found quite helpful over the years as a researcher, writer and designer.

A 🧵

@PhDVoice @ThePhDPlace @PhD_Genie @PhDspeaks @CouragePhD @AcademicChatter @OpenAcademics #phdchat #scicomm @PhDForum
1. Digital notebooks like @Labstep and a physical notebook: To write your experiments, short and long-term goals, updates etc.

2. Portable reading tools like @AmazonKindle or iPad. It's easy to carry (anywhere), read, highlight, and jot down notes.
3. Bibliography manager: Not a secret anymore! You can use @zotero and @mendeley_com. Also, @ConnectedPapers to build a graph of similar papers.

4. @unpaywall to access the full text of scholarly articles.

(3/4) A few pointers of guidelines are -
A. Students can pursue 2 degrees in physical-physical mode, physical-online mode or online-online mode.
Eg- B.A. & BCom can be done together.
B. Courses can be from the same #university or from different universities.

Everyone has a slightly different attitude to books.
Some give them the white glove treatment.
Others break the spine.
Or use book marks.
Write in the margins.
Or have 'post it notes'.
I am a corner turner. Top of the page for something to read again. Bottom for an 'extra'
important passage.

The amount of angles in this one is a reflection of how important a read it is.

As someone who had a loved one who also had a fondness for hats, and in later years kaftans, it was an opportunity to learn about a fellow wonderful, colourful man who was loved
So very much.

As the 'predominant' person involved in his care I shared some of the frustrations particularly around information sharing. I was 'lucky' though. When well and unwell John was able to voice that he wanted me involved. I know that was often

Some #AMHP students have been using #HeDiedWaiting on their course. They made #PledgeForTim and I am so heartened by them. Please do read the thread.

“Not seeing the person just as ill  - making sure I include the family to find out their history /who they are.” 1/
“Involving the person in the decision  - making sure they have enough information and resources”

“Not losing the individuality of the the person - a willingness to stand in their shoes”

“ A person centred approach - talking to others “
“Always asking the family what the person is like when they are well”

‘Giving quality time to the assessment - making sure I explain”

“To listen, to hear, to understand”

“Know the power of language - if that person is quirky or has ambitions make sure I say who they are”

I haven't seen the SLP filed by the TN govt. But now that I have gone through the order by Justice GR Swaminathan, I am sharing some thoughts here about the order itself - well, because it's a free country. #thanjavur #ariyalur #student #suicide.

No one doubts that conversion takes place in TN. It is not illegal. In fact it is a fundamental right to propagate one's religion as per Constitution. It is only forced conversion which is illegal. (2/n)
Justice GRS seems to ignore these when he quotes the Bible, movies and even refers to a magazine article to say conversion takes place. Yes, we know. But what if, as you did, petitioners refer to movies to bolster their arguments since they contain 'kernels of truth'? (3/n)

something #academics i think dont want to admit when it comes to marking #student work:
you quite often just *know* what the mark is & this seems to be quite reliable between markers
no amount of rubrics can define this & often these trap markers into box-ticking
would you agree?

i hate having to justify my mark based on a rubric; it is usually obvious who is a upper/middle/lower 1st, 2:1, 2:2, 3rd, or fail.

obvs the issue is bias without something "objective" but...
...i don't think the objectivity line helps as we just end up fitting our mark into the rubric rather than letting the rubric define the mark

Lieve Twitteraars, in deze barre en onvoorspelbare tijden ben ik als student mijn weg aan het vinden op het pad naar de toekomst. Educatie speelt daar een belangrijke rol in.

#coronavirus #QRcode #QRankzinnigheid #HugodeQRankzinnige #HugodeJongeStapOp
Het heeft er echter alle schijn van, dat dit voor mij, en voor veel andere studenten, leerlingen én docenten dadelijk geen optie meer zal zijn.

Ons principiële gebrek aan een QR Code zou betekenen dat we ons grondrecht op onderwijs niet meer mogen benutten.

We hebben gewacht op lawaai vanuit onderwijsinstellingen, te lang zelfs. Het kwam niet.

Het is tijd. Nood is aan de man en we pakken het zélf aan.

Met een stel andere studenten ben ik het volgende initiatief gestart:

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image
Almost half of the world is connected to the #internet, and in countries that are members of the OECD almost everyone is #online. For children and young people today, being online and using social media have become an integral part of their lives.

Hello friends! Before leaving this account, I'd like to share valuable insights & experiences I gained as PhD #student, #postdoc, and #newPI. These are on various aspects of science.

My insights are obviously not universal. Please take them with a 'big grain of salt'.
Open 🧵
#1. NEVER EVER write an email when overwhelmed by emotion. This is especially relevant when the emotion is anger, regardless of whether it is justified or not. When receiving bad / unpleasant news, it's best to let it rest AT LEAST 1-2 days before responding.
#2. In myself and in my scientific team members, I welcome every feeling/state (expressed with respect) EXCEPT BOREDOM.

A person that is bored has lost curiousity, and awareness of how little she/he knows of this AMAZING universe. There is always something great to learn!

My experience with Children who had #Dyslexia.

When I was in Mombasa, I was running a Madrasa with over 600 children for 3 years.
Some parents would remove their children from schools completely and make their children join the Madrasa fulltime so that they memorised the
#HolyQuran while getting tuition teachers to teach them in the evenings so that they don't miss out in their Secular Education.
3-4 years down the line when they are done memorizing the #HolyQuran, the go back to school and continue with their Secular Education.
I really admired
the dedication & the devotion these parents had towards the Book of ALLAH where they wanted their children to memorise the #HolyQuran. A Book that has over 600 pages and the child memorises it from cover to cover before the age of 12 years. This was a Noble Deed and the reward

MPSC ची परीक्षा अधिवेशन संपल्यावरच रद्द का केली?
आधीच करायला पाहिजे होती ना, आमच्या हातात हॉल तिकीट देऊन ठेवायची गरज काय होती?

विरोधी पक्षाला उत्तर देऊ शकत नव्हते का तुम्ही या मुद्द्यावर..

केंद्राने बँकिंगची परीक्षा घेतली...
केंद्राने रेल्वेची परीक्षा घेतली...
नोव्हेंबर मध्ये UPSC घेतली...
केंद्राने JNU घेतली...
केंद्राने JEE घेतली...
केंद्राने नेट/सेट घेतली...
केंद्राने IB च्या परीक्षेसाठी जाहिरात काढली...

गावागावात ग्राम पंचायत निवडणुका झाल्या,
गुलाल उधळला पण कोरोना नाही आला...

बाळासाहेबांच्या स्मारकाच उद्घाटन झाल,
वाढदिवस झाला पण कोरोना नाही आला...

तुम्ही तुमच्या वडिलांना मुख्यमंत्री बनण्याचं वचन दिल होत,
मग आम्ही आमच्या घरच्यांना MPSC मार्फत अधिकारी बनण्याचं मृगजळ दाखवलं होतं का?

Thread: grant submission experiences as a #PI vs. trainee…with sides of serious and comical.

#AcademicTwitter @AcademicChatter
This week I worked alongside some of my #EPCHL team members (#postdocs, #PhD students) and colleagues to submit 2 applications (was involved in a 3rd). Same competition, same deadline.
Other #EPCHL staff continued to keep our 7+ other clinical trials running smoothly; they have this, they have superpowers that we don’t praise enough.

This brought up memories of a grant submission during graduate school where the PIs and PhD students.

1/365 - Starting this thread with one of the first Motorcycles to be built in India. The @royalenfield #Bullet350. A Motorcycle which was initially built for the Indian Army but with time found patronage amongst varying genre of people achieving a cult status over the decades. ImageImageImageImage
2/365 - After selling imported Vespas for a while, Bajaj Auto started manufacturing the #Bajaj150 under license in 1959. This was one of the first Scooters in India and certainly changed the 2-Wheeler scene as it was initially available at a significant premium in the market. ImageImageImageImage
3/365 Automobile Products of India (API) was the 1st Scooter maker in India and manufactured the #Lambretta Li 150 Series 2 under license from Innocenti at Bombay in the 1960's. This scooter was very popular and made appearances in a few famous Bollywood movies too. #BikerLife ImageImageImageImage
