Tacizci bir bilim insanının biliminden bahsederken aynı zamanda, aynı cümle/paragraf/twit içinde tacizinden de bahsetmemiz gerekli.

Tacizi kanıtlanan bir insanın, buna rağmen para, şöhret ve güç kazanmasına nasıl vesile olabiliyoruz?

Wow. This is just so wrong. One only need look to the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant to see how it uses reclaimed waste water for cooling in the desert. If only reality mattered 🤷‍♂️ https://t.co/0uuI3BD4rW @histoftech https://t.co/3EkJj0WaWc

I do have serious reservations about the use of lecture capture. While it is a very useful revision aid and helps those with special needs, there is a real risk that it’s use as a substitute for the lecture is educationally damaging. https://t.co/8rP9P8M47o
