Serious barriers to women’s success in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths) remain. 73% of early-career medical researchers in Parkville are women, but only 16% of professors are women. 🧪 🧫 🧬 🤖
We have a plan for a Victorian Centre for Gender Equity in Science, to break down the barriers to women’s success in research. If you love science, vote Greens.

In October, AquaPal Tyler visited @cornelluniversity to learn from their aquaponics system! In working with koi and strawberries, #cornelluniversity is researching the cost of aquaponics. We’re so glad that we’ve received advice from #aquaponics professionals!! We know that aquaponics is the sustainable agriculture of the future, and #Cornell does too!

Going.. to store
🃏🃏🃏🃏🃏🃏 Like a collection of soccer players cards, a mountain of protein measurement plates are stored by many researchers.
For sure they will never reuse those plates neither they will read their absorbance again, but the plates are stored until a general cleaning of their benches..
Used to load the same amount of proteins between different samples, any kind of measurement is the startong point of all comparative techniques.

Why aquaponics? In our local community, we are plagued with tremendous PCB contamination and bio magnification within our fish. As a result, many individuals are limited in their consumption of Hudson River fish, or should not eat any at all!! The AquaPals have a solution. Through aquaponics, we provide an alternate, safe food source for our community to enjoy. We strive to alleviate the pressures of chemical water pollution that hits us so close to home. This graph shows what the FDA limits for PCB concentrations (2ppm), compared to what a fish in the Hudson was found to have in its fat tissues (14.77ppm!!!) compared to our system (0ppm)! Our work is so important and we hope that winning the Lexus EcoChallenge will allow us to expand and help our beautiful Hudson Valley!

Meet new Weizmann scientist Dr. Yael Kiro. Dr. Kiro is a geochemist who uses chemical clues to read the environmental record preserved in groundwater, sediments, and rocks. Her work will help answer vital questions for a world dependent on water.

Here’s a sneak peak of our presentation that we submitted to the Lexus EcoChallenge! We are beyond excited to hear back from this competition!! All of the Aquapals have been working so hard to spread awareness of aquaponics in our community, as well as the dangers of PCB pollution. With our winnings, we would implement aquaponics throughout our Hudson Valley community!! Huge thank you to everyone that has gotten us this far!!! •

Ick alert! We have Ich!!! For the past three days, the AquaPals have been struggling with a parasite outbreak in their system called Ich. This is terrifying because it has a 100% mortality rate if untreated. It is hard to treat this in our system, as we want to consume the fish once they’ve grown to maturity. So... what’s the plan? As of now, we increased the salinity of our quarantine tank to 4ppt and have increased the temperature to 88 degrees, while increasing the aeration. We have lost three fish as a result of the parasite. The second photo here shows the white spot disease well, the third shows the eyes of one of our fatalities that was infected with Ich, and the fourth shows some Ich eggs that we found on one of our fish. We are desperately seeking advice! If any fellow AquaPals have gone through this terrible experience, we would love some help to keep our fishies alive! Thank you all for your help. We are also anxiously awaiting to hear back from the #lexusecochallenge and can’t wait to hear if we won! The funds from this could certainly help us with our Ich outbreak. •

Going... to rain
☔☔⛈️⛈️☔⛈️🌦️🌦️ What rainy days bring to Barcelona, a part of big train traffic chaos🚂 is the stunning contrast of shadows and lights in our building
We combined a nice dinner in the terrace and warm weather with amazing storm, a lot of rays and absolute darkness three hours later... All in the same afternoon!

Anyway, I love the atmosphere of this image... #science #PRBB #IMIM #madweather #sun #storm #ray #Barcelona #atmosphere

The cells shown here are fibroblasts, one of the most common cells in mammalian connective tissue. These particular cells were taken from a mouse. Scientists used them to test the power of a new microscopy technique that offers vivid views of the inside of a cell. The DNA within the nucleus (blue), mitochondria (green) and cellular skeleton (red) is clearly visible.

Periodic green auroral vortices (beads) observed from the International Space Station. I was lucky enough to get my hands on some high quality NASA data of these signatures taken from special auroral cameras in Alaska. Combining our observations and measurements from the camera data, with plasma theory allowed us to identify the waves that are causing these signatures which originate in space, approximately 60 000 km from Earth! Our latest paper on these mysterious signatures has finally been published in Nature Communications today! Link in bio for the full article . Image credit: ESA. #naturecommunications

Youth are the future stewards of the environment. Because of this, Harbor Watch leads 5 educational programs for students to come and learn about various aspects of water quality and ecosystem health.

The diameter of the Sun is about 400 times larger than the Moon's, but it is also roughly 400 times farther away from Earth. These two qualities almost cancel each other out, and the Sun usually winds up looking either the same size or just a wee bit bigger than the moon to us.

At the intersection of art and science, @LiatSegal explores the communication between humans and machines. Her exhibition "This is not a Typewriter" is on display now in the Lopatie Conference Centre on the @WeizmannInstitute campus.

“Love is the motivation behind every yearning. In all of life, Love is seeking to discover itself. We come into this world, and we experience a profound forgetfulness; we are asleep. Everything that happens from then on is the process of waking up to the fact that Love brought us here, that we are loved by a Beneficent Unseen Reality, and that the core of our being is Love. The whole purpose and meaning of creation is to discover the secret of Love.” -Kabir Helminski .
.
Kabir Helminkski is a translator of Rumi (the Sufi poet we love at SAND), cofounder and codirector of the Threshold Society, Shaikh of the Mevlevi Order of Sufis, and Muslim educator and retreat leader. .
.
The Threshold Society says of Sufism, that it is "a way of life in which a deeper identity is discovered and lived. This deeper identity, beyond the already known personality, is in harmony with all that exists." .
