Elsevier just revoked access to papers from 2018 for all members of the German consortium trying to negotiate a Germany-wide #openaccess agreement. Please join me and hundreds of colleagues in refusing to review for Elsevier titles that aren't open access! https://t.co/M750UDnyGj

İstanbul Üni. Botanik Bahçesi, bini aşkın nadir bitki barındıran değerli bir öğrenci laboratuvarı. Yanılmıyorsam Şeyhülislamlık makamına dönüştürülmek üzere Diyanet İşleri’ne devredilmiş. İlgilenenler için bu karara karşı bir kampanya var, ben imzaladım. https://t.co/Nj7qMKEEqU

Game Over! Genomic Prediction of Social Mobility. Out-of-sample validation; polygenic score predicts life outcome (socioeconomic index). Cohorts from NZ / US, born different decades. Higher SES families have higher polygenic scores on average. PNAS paper.https://t.co/yGHO7E8WJw pic.twitter.com/qrdAwu8eUg

Zeer helder overzichtsartikel over waterstofeconomie door @reijn1 en @NielsWaarlo. Verplicht leesvoer voor alle politici .. Alleen al om die basis natuurkunde feitjes die (te) weinig mensen lijken te kennen en die steeds weer opduiken in discussies. https://t.co/2sUS8emwGs pic.twitter.com/yGwwgwGqm4

So why do we need #LGBTSTEMDay tomorrow or initiatives like @LGBTSTEM and @PrideInLondon?

Amazing how much fun can be had with random points on a sphere! A team of mathematicians on Twitter just discovered a cool connection between Catalan numbers and the distance between random points on the sphere in 4d - using the quaternions!https://t.co/g40n7DWAK1

Enriched profunctors sound scary, but here's a nice one. Two islands C and D with one-way toll roads between some cities - and one-way plane trips from some cities in C to some in D. What's the cheapest trip from E to c? I explain the theory here: https://t.co/a3IYJ0sgrO pic.twitter.com/YtYwsoF9je
