BLM, my two cents
We should do better than calling a stop on police brutality. It is a symptom, not the root cause. Better public education and healthcare might be ONE way to go. History will repeat itself unless fairness is garuanteed which could really bring forth structural changes. #blm
Hi! I'm Alison, a PhD student in #astronomy at University of #Hawaii. I'm finding a way to calculate ages of stars that are small, cool, and too old for us to currently measure — which will help teach us about the history of the Milky Way 🌌, the stars of "habitable" planets 🪐, and the physics of magnetic dynamos (ie the source of Earth's magnetic poles) 🧭.
Ask me space questions!
So China 🇨🇳 recently stopped allowing students to go to Universities in ROC/Taiwan 🇹🇼. Could be a prelude to something bad.
From what I gathered, some mainland students had good experience in Taiwan, and some even contributed to local social movements. Shame that both governments did not treat them fairly.
Shame that history had to end on this note.

The Chinese students I met just coming to 🇪🇺 for master studies are waaaaayyyyy more nationalistics (and conservative?) than those who I met 4 years ago coming to 🇺🇸 for bachelor programs.
I wonder what people from 30 years ago would think about that 🤔 Also really curious about what happened in China (and the World to be fair) in the past few years (duh?)
I should have seen it coming, but I am still under prepared for the abdominal #internet in China. My prepared a bunch of VPNs on macOS as my daily driver, but non for Windows, which I need for projects.
I spent a whole evening trying to get VPNs running. They are still very unstable. I have trouble getting OS patches and softwares for work. Darn it.
And my parents are definitely overreacting
