Hi 👋🏾

"Hawai'ian" is not a word and that spelling is entirely wrong. If you see it, kindly update it and share this knowledge with others.

Hawaiian is an English word

Hawaiʻi is a word from the Indigenous language of the people of Hawaiʻi

My PhD advisor told me about his theory that the PhD is a bathtub function - thinking about this image helped me a lot when I was there in the long slog in the middle of it. Maybe this #sketchnote going to be helpful to others, too? #AcademicChatter #PhDChat pic.twitter.com/VxmUVlzjFl

Kanaka Māoli or Kanaka ʻŌiwi are the Indigenous people of Hawaiʻi

I often say, that we don’t always need a telescope to capture deep sky objects. Well, here is an example.

PSA- if you say you "love science" because you like space facts, but don't wear a mask, you don't actually love science. You love trivia. Science is a process, and you can't just pick and choose the parts you want.
