I feel like every time I don't want to use internet solutions for meetings or work (because I'm so sick of it and I do so bad using it) people act like I'm insulting their efforts. At this point I would just rather not communicate with anyone rather than continuing to feel completely incompetent

so what's your go-to scholarly fact that will make everyone at the party hate you and ask you to kindly leave?

A report written by a colleague of mine that I hope none of you will ever find directly helpful

Some people I know run an anarchist library. It's pretty cool, many nice titles. I did have one thought that I would like to hear from librarians here about. They have taken up the convention of having a separate category bookshelf labeled as "books we don't agree with". I'm totally willing to just respect that stance but I want to know what other people think about that kind of thing. (like I found one book in that shelf that I'm pretty sure aligns with my views)

is anyone aware of any good taxonomy/systematics meme board?

Have any of you read any good cli-fi I might want to put in my radar?

currently reading 

The Ministry of the Future, the new book by Kim Stanley Robinson. Two chapters in and it's super intense, one of my favourite cli-fi writers for sure.

- Why isn't Trump allowed in the White House anymore?
- It's for-Biden.

the debate about appropriate definitions and broad goals for YOUR FIELD continues, largely in the academic literature, with little likelihood of resolution

off topic, organizing concert, activism 

my friend just lost a case and got fined 600.00kr. (aprox. $4.3k) for disobeying the police during a peaceful sit-in at the directorite of immigrations' office in protest to the deportation of refugees and asylum seekers. i'm organizing a fundraiser concert for him but also want to protest of the police, but have no experience with this kind of event.. hope it will turn put nicely. If you've ever done activism events, all tips are very welcome :Antifa:

Gonna be attending the SPARC student conference for polar and alpine research in Brno. So excited to travel there albeit a bit scary to enter pandemic europe after a year on little secluded Iceland. Don't know what to expect also this is my first science conference I will be attending and presenting at.

Today is the first ever 🌍 and I would like to take the opportunity to share our project's website. The MetroPEMS project will help to improve urban air quality by bringing metrology to measurements 🚗

it's funny how actually doing research and working on a paper feels almost nothing like the fantasy doing the research and writing a paper 🤔

I like being in an instance that feels like a teacher's breakroom.
everyone's just like, 'I am exhausted, but I love this, but also I hate it? Idk who knows I might find another job. Pass the coffee.'

tng, research 

In order to cover various aspects of my research i've resorted to role-playing different star trek tng characters while doing each task. Today I was Geordie the computer vision guy, tonight i'm Riker the drink beer and read through field reports

This study was so well done. Great controls, study size of *100,000*.

Any additional studies focusing on HCQ for covid19 should be stopped immediately for ethical reasons.

"The mortality in the control group was 9.3%. The mortality in the chloroquine group was 16.4%. The mortality in the chloroquine plus macrolide group was 22.2%. The mortality in the hydroxychloroquine group was 18%. And the mortality in the hydroxychloroquine plus macrolide group was 23.8%."
