While looking for a way to start her career as a developer, Tuğçenur realized that the solution was obvious - then she landed her first tech job. How? Let’s read 👇
💻 Tuğçenur’s most challenging courses were coding-related courses while studying Electrical and Electronics Engineering - so she thought coding wasn’t for her.
👀 But her perspective had utterly changed when she practiced with Android programming during her internship.

#University students are in crisis and management are in complete denial. UK UG students have entered uni without taking A Levels bc of #covid disrupting their education. 1st and 2nd years of study have been chaotic. Covid, strikes, racial trauma, now cost of living crisis.
University mngt in the UK is in denial about how students have been impacted by these interconnected crises. Here are examples of things going horribly wrong that universities do NOTHING about
1. Students are not turning up to classes. Attendance has never been so poor and there is nothing that management are doing to understand why students are struggling to leave their homes and attend class. There is no mental health intervention, no support scheme to address this

BREAKING: The #USS trustee board today agreed to proceed with controversial #pension cuts for tens of thousands of #university sector members, effective from April 2022.
#USS said: “The Valuation was signed off in September 2021. At the meeting today, the Trustee board agreed to the deed giving effect to the changes to the member benefits from April 2022 in the form recommended by the Joint Negotiating Committee.”
The USS trustee approved the #pension cuts today as a High Court judge in London gave the go-ahead for a legal challenge to the 2020 #USS valuation.

"The Trustee’s view remains that this claim is without merit," said USS, adding it had not yet puts its case to the Court yet.

Dear @UWaterloo about this hardline on returning to F2F Feb 28. A major element of #LongCovid seems to be microglial inflammation (that’s in the brain) yielding neurological damage. The prevalence of long COVID varies among studies, but 5-10% is a conservative estimate. 1/3 🧵
A #University’s greatest asset is their people. You’ve invested so much in all your #faculty. Mostly we are valued for our #brains. I wonder if those pushing the “learn to live with COVID” agenda have done the math on what it would cost if 5% of us got #LongCovid #NeuroCOVID 2/3
Even 3+ months of #brainfog in 100 of your highly skilled faculty must be $$$. Add to that our 6200 grad #students and 36000 undergrads here to develop their brains. Do they know the gamble they are taking with their Neuro #health? @yourWUSA I don’t get the rush 🤷🏻‍♀️🧠 #COVID19 3/3

The Jewish cemetery of #Salonica was once the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe, with over 350,000 graves. Its destruction began with the Hellenising policies of interwar Greece and concluded in 1942 during the Nazi occupation of the city. #Thread
Whereas the Jewish cemetery was destroyed and incorporated as part of the Aristotle University, #Salonica’s Dönme cemetery became a football field, and the city’s main Muslim cemetery became the International Fair Ground.
Though the vast majority of tombs in the Jewish cemetery belonged to #Sephardim, there were also many Ashkenazi tombs, as well as some headstones dating back to the Roman era.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

Le #cellule #Car-T “peptide-centriche” contro i #tumori solidi: in questo caso ha come #target i #frammenti proteici nelle cellule di #neuroblastoma. Studio di #Nature riassunto in questo thread un po' lungo ma spero interessante. 1/13
Le basi/1. Le terapie CAR-T si basano sull’ingegnerizzazione delle #cellule T (o #linfociti T) del sistema #immunitario del #paziente, che vengono “potenziate” per combattere il #tumore. 2/13
Le basi/2. Per farlo gli scienziati usano un #vettore #virale inattivato contenente un #gene in grado di far esprimere sulla superficie delle cellule T un #recettore chimerico (il recettore dell’antigene chimerico, #CAR, a cui la terapia deve il suo nome). 3/13

My thoughts on the new #UniversityofAustin
1.) I get why people are concerned about what's happening in academia. I am too.
2.) I am not sure starting a new school is the answer
3.) the answer is for good people to come together and TALK about #DEI. #cancelculture #University 1/
The reason there is such a backlash is because people do not know how to talk about race, racism, and the intersections with gender and sexuality in America. So, instead they go on the attack. They demean. They harass. They marginalize. They deny reality. #CancelCulture 2/
American universities cannot become a place where the "diversity statement" runs the community. It has to be one of the spokes in the wheel that makes a university an open, free, welcoming, healthy space for academic freedom and discourse for ALL. 3/

Today at uni we watched a video of a GP consult with a woman who was presenting with low mood, poor sleep, not eating well, and a recent pay cut at work. The GP used the PHQ-9. We were asked what we felt the next steps should be. People were talking about CBT and medication.. 1/

This is a heavy one. As I rebuild my life, God is helping me to unlearn this mindset of blindly tolerating the disrespect of institutions & the people that run these institutions. A prime example are institutions of higher education. Image
Now, there are several reasons why I tolerated the high level of blatant disrespect from my research advisor for so long, to the point of eventually BREAKING myself. COMPLETELY. And guess what? NONE of the “institutionalists” offered ANY help.
Haven’t heard a peep from ANYONE to this day! But, my GOD RESTORED ME. So here I am. Now, here’s the thing. I was wrong. I was of the mind, that since these people are more well learned than I am, went to elite universities, furnishing fancy PhDs,…

THREAD 20 of writing against the 🪖-coup. Because people in #Myanmar need to be heard & the @IntlCrimCourt should know #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar. As the #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar is getting stronger, all people on this list sacrificed their lives for #democracy #March2Coup Image
1. While #FB has partially banned top military accounts and pages (not the businesses), @TikTokSupport needs to immediately react and block the hundreds of accounts by 🪖promoting hate speech and inciting violence there #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar
2. Not only in #Mandalay and #Monywa but also in smaller places people have begun to install self-governing bodies. This is exactly what the #military fears and why they keep kidnapping low- and mid-level state personnel at night: self-governance is powerful! #March2Coup #Myanmar

I don't do this often so please bear with me. Here's a thread about the alarming developments in #Greece & #New_Democracy's hard-right/#authoritarian turn.👇This photo by D. Tosidis (credit: EPA-EFE; Source:
ANA-MPA) can act as an intro to the thread. 0/ webgate.epa.eu/webgate?EVENT=…
So, is #New_Democracy govt driving #Greece towards democratic backsliding? Today after we witnessed yesterday's disgraceful images of #police brutally attacking & arresting protesting students inside the country’s biggest university is a sadly fitting day to pose the question. 1/
If we take #Hungary & #Poland as exemplary cases in the literature & as points of comparison, the answer is likely to be yes. The most common symptoms of democratic backsliding mentioned by scholars seem to be manifesting in #Greece since July 2019 with disturbing consistency. 2/

Ontarians desperately need direct financial relief. Small business owners, people who have lost incomes, and people who are concerned about covid recovery need to be included in the plan. Will we see investments, or more cuts? Watch the full speech here: ola.org/en/legislative…
Will there be any support offered for people experiencing #homelessness in #Toronto? How about for #college and #university students who are concerned about their job prospects coming during and after school? #onpoli #onpse #topoli
