Challenges in Academia

A pointed article about what is going wrong, in part, with academia.

“The growth of managerial and administrative grades responsible more and more for controlling academics rather than supporting them is one of the most important trends in the modern university. That structure emits a constant white noise and static of demands that don’t seem connected to lecturers’ training or aims”

Featured story: "The conservative campaign to harass the libs out of academia has already sent a chill through #Texas’ world-class public universities, making professors and administrators so fearful of setting off the lunatics in charge at the Capitol that they censor themselves—in scholarship or in their communications with students and the public."

The quote from below article stopped me dead in my tracks. Reminds me of way too many bio education initiatives I've been naively involved in (if your long-term outreach/education program does not involve professional teachers, it's time to reassess) https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/gates-foundation-takes-up-question-of-its-own-power/

A neat "book" i came across courtesy of @itsfoss.
"Putting the 'YOU' in CPU" explains how a CPU works, how computers run programs, and the basics of these wonderful devices that have taken over our life, in simple (ish) terms.

For anyone that wants to know HOW computers do what they do, this is a great place to start, and it's free, readable on the website, on GitHub, or as a downloaded PDF.

“ the shooting [of a 1st grade teacher] was “a workplace injury” & “hazard of the job.”

What sort of school organisation/state/county can say such rubbish.

Insanity doesn’t begin to describe it.

The right's cries for "ideological diversity" sound fair to well-meaning people who believe in good-faith debate as a way to arrive at the truth. But truth is not the goal here; the goal is power.

Our children deserve to learn about this in school. Instead they’re taught as little as possible so they can serve the Gods of Capitalism.

Maybe some believe they are not/more/better than the working class. Either way, they need to wake up to being oppressed & fed satisfying tidbits. Some steps towards destroying class & most other forms of oppression would be end #patriarchalcapitalism develop truly universal (global) #education in order to achieve #equality #justice & #unity.

#greasepencil in :blender:​ #Blender can now playback your drawing with the natural, recorded speed of your stylus. This makes #opensource #blender3d a powerful tool for annotation #videoproduction, particularly for #education, because you have the full feature set of one of the most powerful 3d suites at your disposal! For example: You could even project your annotations into the real world using camera tracking 😎​😍​

This addition I coded over the last month is now in the source code - so you can try it out with a daily build already.


#Introduction

The word “invasivore” is a portmanteau combining “invasive Species” with the Latin root “devorare” meaning to swallow (as in "herbivore" or “carnivore”). Thus, #invasivore = one who eats invasive species, those organisms that have been introduced around the world and cause massive environmental and economic damages.

Our website https://www.invasivore.org/ serves a buffet of knowledge about #invasivespecies. At the core of our approach are #recipes featuring invasive ingredients, but we also provide species profiles describing notorious invaders, harvesting tips, exposition and commentary on related topics, summaries of relevant #science and #research, and roundups (#InvasionBites!) of the latest #news and other media about invasive species.

We believe that #education and #awareness can decrease the impacts of invasions by controlling existing populations and preventing new introductions.


Great summary & graph that explains the levels of scientific evidence.

@Raspberry_Pi Foundation.


Last year you helped us raise over £30,000 for the #RaspberryPi Foundation during their end-of-year giving campaign.

Those funds helped them give more young people computing opportunities, and we want to make an even bigger impact this year.

You in?.. https://www.raspberrypi.com/news/give-young-people-the-chance-to-create-with-technology/

You can donate any amount, no matter how small. It all adds up. And whether you’re able to donate or not, we’d love it if you shared this post to help us reach more people.

In this paper I argue that developments in STEM education research can be accelerated through the strategic use of systematic reviews, with a particular focus on #OpenScience practices and associated benefits. DM or email if you experience acces issues.
