Science Progressive Community - sharing visibility
The community of people active in science progressive topics mostly consists of a large number of individuals and small teams who struggle for visibility. As science advocates, Science for Progress wants to help giving these activities a larger audience.
This is why we offer this platform to people of the community! You will find event announcements, introductions, and opinion pieces on diverse science progressivist topics!
In this episode I talk about the science fiction movie ANYA with its creators Anthropologist Dr. Carylanna Taylor, and Jacob Okada of First Encounter Productions (not a sponsor).
The plot of ANYA could happen today! It all starts with a couple in New York that has difficulty having a baby. The groom is a member of the Narval People who keep to themselves – mostly because they think there is a curse that prohibits them from having children with anyone but other members of the community. They bring in a geneticist to find out why they are having problems procreating, and this is where the story becomes interesting.
Utterly vile. Universities that don't provide health insurance (in countries where it's not socialized) deserve to lose every bit of postdoc talent they have. If they cannot do the right thing on their own then they deserve to be publicly shamed into it. Ablest and vile treatment https://t.co/tXrSlbEDPH
Academia needs more clear expectations and enforced deadlines.
1) We would know if we are doing enough instead of constantly feeling guilty
2) We would see that the current, unstated expectations and deadlines are completely impossible
