A day at the SciPEN workshop and a meetup with my STEM friends (instapost)

🔻English translation below🔻 في يوم الخميس الماضي ، التقيت مع العديد من أصدقائي في مجال العلوم خلال ورشة عمل حول سياسة العلوم لأول مرة. تم تنظيم ورشة العمل من قبل شبكة تبادل السياسات العلمية - SciPEN وكانت نظرة ثاقبة كبيرة لمهنة سياسة العلوم وما تنطوي عليه. أعتقد أن النقاط الثلاث الرئيسية للخريجين الذين يتطلعون إلى الدخول في مهنة في السياسة العلمية:

Everything You Need To Know About Solar Geoengineering

Following your interest on my latest Instagram post on Earth Day 2019, here’s the solar geoengineering post you've all been waiting for! This post will be providing most of the known types of solar geoengineering and also critically looking at where this research places us in the battle against climate change. I’m going to keep this as brief as possible so you don't get bored but also full of detailed explanations. N.B. When I mention “cooling the planet”, below,  I mean by only one or two degrees Celcius maximum.

كل ما تحتاج لمعرفته حول الهندسة الجيولوجية الشمسية - النسخه العربيه

بعد اهتمامكم بأحدث بوستاتي في الانستغرام في يوم الأرض 2019 ، إليك مقاله الهندسة الجيولوجية الشمسية الذي كنتم تنتظرونها جميعًا! تقدم هذه المقالة معظم الأنواع المعروفة من الهندسة الجيولوجية الشمسية وأيضًا النظر في المكان الذي يضعنا فيه هذه الأبحاث في المكافحة ضد تغير المناخ. سأبقى هذه المقاله مختصرة قدر الإمكان حتى لا تشعروا بالملل بل مليئاً بالتفسيرات التفصيلية. ملحوظة: عندما أذكر "تبريد الكوكب" ، أدناه ، أعني بدرجة واحدة أو بدرجتين فقط كحد أقصى. هدف إدارة الإشعاع الشمسي هو خفض درجات الحرارة العالمية، لا شيء آخر. هذا لا يحل مشكلة تغير المناخ بالكامل لأن الغازات الدفيئة ستستمر في الارتفاع إذا لم نفعل أي شيء لمنع حدوث ذلك.

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.

HAPPY EARTH DAY 2019! (instapost)

It’s earth day and it's one of the most important days of the year where most of us are more aware of our planet, our climate and the problems this planet will face in terms of climate change if we don’t take any proper actions. I’m sure my friends will tell you all about what you can do to play a significant role in preventing climate change (check out my stories!) but I’d like to briefly tell you what researchers are doing to prevent climate change.

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?
