Tips for your Masters Dissertation / Project / Thesis (PART 4)

This is the most important part of your bachelors, masters or doctorate degree so it's important you know what you're doing so you hit the ground running and don't waste valuable time being lost. When I was completing my bachelors' dissertation I was completely lost, even though I enjoyed working in the lab, I didn't enjoy the overall process and it left me really stressed and anxious. I only found out the aim of my research once I had completed and submitted my project. Granted I did get a good grade on it and it's still a piece of work I'm proud of, but if I could go back and do things differently or focus on specific parts of it, I would.

What they don’t tell you about Facts and Theories at School | GUEST POST

I have come to notice one thing, scientists can be rather condescending and mean to anyone who seems to have any arguments against scientific theories and facts. Especially when you’re not a scientist. In fact, some can be downright awful and make fun of you. This defensiveness appears when we scientists think you’ve made some outlandish remark about a fact that we’ve known for centuries…fact being the key word here. It’s amazing to me how little time scientists spend explaining what the difference between fact and theory actually is. What qualifies a fact to be considered the fact, is it simply the complete truth? And if so, why do some individuals attempt to discredit science at every given opportunity?

5 (+1) Tips on Giving Presentations Without Being Nervous (PART 3)

I have given a number of presentations, however, up until recently presentations were something I would hide from and try to avoid at all costs because of my nerves.  But thanks to my philosophy of science lecturer, I gave a presentation which gave me the confidence to fight the voices in my head that scare me away from giving presentations.

This isn't to say that I'm 100% perfect at giving presentations, there is a lot I need to work on too, but these tips have helped me give good presentations that got good marks. In the midst of giving my thesis presentation. I use my hands a lot to explain my work LOL.

Why we need to talk WITH anti-vaxxers - Opinion Piece

(Arabic translation below) The beauty of the human race is in our differences and our differences in opinions. But often, some strong opinions held by a group of people can lead to detrimental effects on our planet and our health (i.e climate change deniers and the anti-vaccination movement). Basically what I'm trying to say is that we need to stop expecting ignorance and think of a new way to engage in an active discussion with anti-vaccinators in the hope of fixing the damage caused by the anti-vaccination movement.
