Hi all! I'm doing some research for my criminal justice degree and I would really appreciate it if you would take the time to complete this survey!
It's about 30-ish questions, mostly multiple choice and some open form questions. Shouldn't take very long at all and would be a great help if you participate! ❤
academic projects and research on online toxicity, hate speech, disinformation, and so on are descriptive talking about the same thing over and over and I find it strange that so many proposals are getting funding to repeat mundane evidential results
"After introducing plural logic and its main applications, the book provides a systematic analysis of the relation between this logic and other theoretical frameworks such as set theory, mereology, higher-order logic, and modal logic."

"We consider two interacting systems when one is treated classically while the other system remains quantum. Consistent dynamics of this coupling has been shown to exist, and explored in the context of treating space-time classically. Here, we prove that any such hybrid dynamics necessarily results in decoherence of the quantum system, and a breakdown in predictability in the classical phase space."

Genuine question: Every time I receive anonymous peer-review suggesting "major revisions", I find the revisions, in fact, really minor: Add a definition here, explain an argument more in detail over there, justify the choice for X, describe the data better. Usually much needed, but with no change in the overall argument, structure, etc.
Wondering if others feel the same way. Are we maybe afraid of being too lenient/not "academic" enough if the suggested revisions are not that big? #Academic
I’ve a few more #bluesky invite codes if anyone can make use of them - maybe you’ve an #academic, #vegan or #CovidIsNotOver comrade who for whatever reason is still stuck on Xitter & might be persuaded over?

Any suggestions for video conferencing hardware in #academic #teaching, i.e. for hybrid seminars and lectures? I had my eyes on owl but I wonder about alternatives.
One concern is the future existence of the producer e.g. for software security updates, where I would put more trust into long-existing companies like logitech for instance. Looking for comments from people who use it regularly. What quirks might occur?

"The following review of the archeological and document evidence indicates that three events occurring in the first half of the first millennium BC trigger the emergence of a specialized and integrated classical economy after 500 BC: (i) growth in demand for silver as a medium of exchange in economies in the Near East; (ii) technical breakthroughs in hull construction and sailing rig in merchant shipping of the late Bronze Age; (iii) perfection of ferrous metallurgy into the European hinterland."

Episode 8: The Audience Commodity
With the relaunch, we started by framing the events on #socialmedia of June 2023 through the lens of the #audiencecommodity a key piece of #academic work on #communications critical of existing approaches. 45 years later, I think it still holds up, and helps explain much of the business model of the modern #advertising web.
The #university is busy urging us to identify people who will say nice things about us for the QS #Academic and Reputation Surveys. We could do that, or we could stop voluntarily participating in a bullshit ranking system that exists only to preserve privilege & pad the pockets of some parasitic consultants. It’s a tough one.
For the moment, we are 6 with a background in sport sciences (🇫🇷 🇨🇦 ).
If you have a training in environmental sciences and an experience in knowledge synthesis, contact me.
I am looking for collaborators.
I don't have $$ for this project.
Start in 2024 January
My #cybersecurity students are front and center of RPI's social media today. Today is proud #professor day: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/rensselaer-polytechnic-institute_our-cybersecurity-research-lab-the-rensselaer-activity-7133162229129961472-WN-7?utm_source=share&utm_medium=member_desktop
During this #WorkInPublishing Week, we want to bring attention to the #innovations and resources available on our platform, which is supported by #publishers from all over the world and professionals with distinguished #academic backgrounds.

One of the by-products of the overwork, casualisation and rampant enforced precarity of #academic life is that we're all too burned out to do peer review for grants and papers.
The rigour - and therefore global influence - of academic work in the UK *relies* on the volunteer labour of academics. By attack our work-life balance, the entire quality of our scientific realm is undermined.
#academic journals are like, hey prepare your paper in 20 files….this is best for everyone!
🇸🇬My PSLE results will be out soon, but I know they don’t define me
"Many scholarships .. look beyond #academic achievements. They look at the students’ social interactions, how eloquently they express their opinions & ideas, how deep their #understanding of a subject is, .. & their #criticalthinking. Marks r not a ticket to success. #Attitude, diligence, resilience & understanding r equally important. So to students everywhere, marks do not define you"
Should I post my PhD thesis on arXiv if I intend to make a paper based on it?
I think this is really cool. One of the fun things I get to do every semester is be the coach and sponsor of our #cybersecurity CTF teams here at #RPI. One of the major CTFs we compete in is the National Cyber League, which gets about 10,000 participants each semester.
This semester, we ranked FIRST in the nation out of the 521 colleges and universities that participated. Many of the best places to study cybersecurity in the world participate in the NCL, and it is my students who stand alone at the top.
This is obviously the students' success and not my own. Still feels good.
Next week, I will be giving an invited presentation during the X-IFU consortium meeting.
No, I haven't changed my #research topic out of #exoplanets to study the extreme #universe. I was invited by @didier_barret to present one of the last result, from @labos1point5 and led by Tamara Ben-Ari, on the impact of air travels on the #academic #CarbonFootprint.
(not a public presentation)
Come join an excellent team, do great research and help shape the next generation of scientists. What more could you ask for?

Attention post-docs! My research group (DistriNet at KU Leuven) is hiring an Assistant Professor 🎓 in Distributed Systems on our main science & engineering campus in Leuven, Belgium 🇧🇪
We're looking for a colleague in the early stages of their academic career, preferably with some years of post-doc experience and with demonstrated expertise in distributed systems.
Very interesting analysis of how #publisher consolidation (mergers, acquisitions, takeovers, conglomerates) changed #fiction for the worse.
Tonight, my #mood is quite good. After an afternoon spent in different meetings to discuss the future of #astronomy in #France, I am happy that the #climate issues are becoming quite central to the discussions.
5 years ago, it was not even discussed.
Deleted my #X #Twitter account because of its evil owner, so call me ex-X as I cross it out of my nice life here in #Japan! Thanks to @dangillmor for the nudge. I'm a stickler anyway about living by #academic #ethics: https://japanned.hcommons.org/academic_life
I'm in the #Humanities Commons instance, and we have free profiles like https://hcommons.org/members/stevemccartyinjapan that include a link to the old blue bird of Twitter, and members are increasingly leaving, so our admins at @hello might want to reconsider having that item in the next version of profiles.
What can I do with all this new free time besides taking contemplative hikes in Kyoto? I'm still looking for a wide range of informants and academic colleagues, as I should have big news on #international #collaboration in 2024. I'm looking for #friends in fields such as #online #education, #bilingualism, #language #teaching with #technology, #journalism, #interculturalcommunication, and #Asia.
A little positive reinforcement goes a long way!
Let me say, this is a hot list of keyword-tags for the "CITE ME" button/badges (available at-cost for your next scholarly function):
Amusing myself perfecting sort of non-commercial target marketing. I removed the swear-y version of the pin that was probably off-putting for some
Now with this web of keywords it'll be interesting to see if these become useful to anybody 🎓
Absolutely this 👇
I now publish everything #OA + put links to publications on my personal blog, but you're always welcome to contact me if you can't find something.
A reminder for non-academics: If you ever can't find access to an #academic's paper or article, you should feel free and encouraged to reach out to them to ask for a pre-print version.
99.9% of the time, they will not think of it as an imposition; they will, in fact, be EXTREMELY gratified by your interest.
I really like the advice of Prof. Katherine Lee in "#Career paths for #academic #biostatisticians" (https://doi.org/10.25374/MCRI.24226324.v1). Prof. Lee describes not just types of career but also how to progress in them. It's easy to forget (or be unaware of) the diversity of work that (bio)statisticians are involved in and this gives a nice overview. I also like mention of careers outside of #academia 😎 Question: What's the mobility between these various streams? #VicBiostat #ACTA #STInG
Today was Honors Convocation at dear old #RPI. It's one of my favorite days of the academic year; we get to celebrate the best of the best of what are already the best students anywhere in the world. I always make it a point to be part of the faculty procession, so that I can be there to see all my students get honored.
And I get to brag even more about my students; we (ITWS) are a small program and we had 4 students receive RPI's top student honor today, which goes to less than 1% of all students. I already know ITWS students are the best of the best, but seeing us punch so far above our weight all day every day and seeing it pay off at events like this make it all worth it. So proud of my students.
Attention nerdy #academic mastodon!
… I’m heading towards a MSc thesis and the thought of using Word is bringing me out in hives. And it’s been -cough- years since my PhD, so I remember nothing.
Calling all researchers - please participate in our survey (5-10mins) and share with your networks - thanks!
#Postdoc in their 30s are less happy than their non-academic peers in their 20s. Short-term contracts and constant relocating make it almost impossible, among the others, to settle down, and start a family.
As an #academic who lived in 3 countries, has now 2 very young daughters, and if she gets tenure will be well in her 40s, I can't stop wondering what is the reason behind this, because, honestly, I can't see any
I've been writing the word "orthologous" a lot recently for a manuscript, and I've had a lot of fun writing and saying ("or-THAW-low-gus").
Anyone else have any odd words from their disciplines that you've enjoyed writing and/or saying they feel like sharing?
(These are my writing procrastination posts. Yes, they are usually this mundane.)
"Perhaps these ‘serious’ youtubers could be thought of as public intellectuals, much in the way tenured university researchers have been in the past."
What do you think? Who is your favourite fact-based ‘serious’ youtuber?
Delfi eventually approached several #academic #experts in #history and #archeology. The response was immediately #positive and #enthusiastic. This was the #genesis of the #panellecture titled “#TheyWereRoommates,” which will be hosted by #Penn #Museum on Oct. 22.
Complex feelings. Students are fundraising to attend SSHA conference in DC & did a 5K this a.m. I wore a sandwich board asking for donations to our Venmo account. Proud of the students & ashamed of the state of US higher ed that we actually ask for money on the street to pay for an opportunity like this. The students are all first gen & all but one is from an underrepresented group.
"proponents of suspending the #Constitution include the likes of Claremont’s Michael Anton, the leading #academic proponent of Trumpism, who in a 2020 book floated a similar theory about a “form of one-man rule: halfway … between monarchy and tyranny.”"

🔥 Maya Indira Ganesh: "Cultural critique and Artificial Intelligence" interviewed by Francis Hunger
Maya Ganesh discusses how artistic works have influenced the critique of artificial intelligence in recent years. The interview further investigates the differences between #academic textual production and #art exhibition curating, and how they reflect differently on our world and the development of #AI technologies.
Seems a bit scammy.
“What our biggest, most rigorous and authoritative rankings show is that you have to run very fast even just to stand still in an increasingly dynamic, competitive global higher education sector.”

At the Zagreb Applied Ethics Conference, we had a plenary talk by Francesca Minerva about the Journal of Controversial Ideas:
"The Journal of Controversial Ideas offers a forum for careful, rigorous, unpolemical discussion of issues that are widely considered controversial, in the sense that certain views about them might be regarded by many people as morally, socially, or ideologically objectionable or offensive."
What do you think of that idea? 🤔
That ruling was narrower than a district court’s finding that also barred #government ofcls from working w/ #academic groups, including the #Stanford #Internet Observatory. But the #DOJ argues the injunction still contradicts certain First Amendment principles, including that the president is entitled to use his bully pulpit to persuade American companies “to act in ways that the President believes would advance the #PublicInterest.”
