Here are some highlights from our masterclass on Monday with @soapboxislington . . . We will are running free Ms Independent Masterclass throughout June! From 6pm-7:30pm. Make sure you are their ladies! We’re so excited!
What’s my signature scent? Well, other than that general field work stink, it’s Calvin Klein’s Obsession For Men! I’m conducting a species assemblage survey in Sierra Leone’s oldest and most biodiverse national park, #OutambaKilimiNationalPark and I use this cologne to scent bait some of the cameras to try to attract big cats! But it seems to be quite popular with genets too. I chose to use cologne rather than some edible bait because I didn’t really want to feed anything, or have my bait carried away by ants!

STOP SCROLLING: Made you look! The BRANDPRENUR scroll stopper of the week goes to the remarkable Margo Yearwood. Margo is an IT Manager for Mercedes-Benz USA and leads the IT Implementation for its new line of electric vehicles known internally as C.A.S.E (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electric ) vehicles. As a part of her BRAND DAY experience, Margo wanted to create an image that spoke not only to her background in information technology but showed her as in charge, fearless, technically savvy and insightful. The BRAND we created says that and so much more. When you have a moment, give Margo a follow. Let her know how amazing she looks. When you do, you tell her the BRANDPRENUER sent you. #BRANDPRENUER #getnoticed GET NOTICED Need help with your creating your BRAND online?

A big welcome to Joy, our newest summer undergraduate researcher! . . . Joy is a Science and Engineering Fellow and is already showing off her field ecology skills in her first week! . . . She is collecting the common bladderwort, which is an aquatic plant that actually will capture and consume mosquito larvae (think little shop of horrors but under water and without much horror). . . . #couretlab #biocontrol #fieldecology #fieldwork #womeninstem #diversityinstem #bladderwort #carnivorousplant #scienceisfun #scientistwhoselfie #scientistselfies #plantsofinstagram #scientistsofinstagram #uri #undergraduateresearch #undergrad @uricels #rhodeisland #gorams @urisummer @cels_sos
Olivia Dennis was the second women to obtain a Civil Engineering degree from Cornell University! Designer of modern comfortable train interior.⠀ She started her career as a draftsman and eventually became Baltimore and Ohio Railroad’s first “service engineer” and was assigned the responsibility of improving passenger service.⠀ ⠀ She worked hard to make traveling as comfortable as possible for the passengers. Some her innovations included - seats that could partially recline, stain-resistant upholstery in passenger cars, larger dressing rooms for women supplied with free paper towels, liquid soap and drinking cups, ceiling lights that could be dimmed at night, individual window vents and air-conditioned compartments. Other rail carriers, and eventually buses and airlines had to upgrade their level of comfort in order to compete with the railroads. During the World War II, she served as a consultant for the Federal Office of Défense Transportation. She was the first female member of the American Railway Engineering Association.⠀ ⠀ Did you know Baltimore and Ohio Railroad designed an entire train that incorporated all of Olive’s innovations and this train was deemed ‘the crowning glory of her career" by historian Sharon Harwood?⠀ ⠀ SPONSORED BY:⠀ #MEEngineers @aecom @wspuk @tidewaylondon @ansys_inc @jacobsconnects @johnson_matthey @happoldfoundation @Ferrovial @we_are_engineers #TheFireSurgery #MuskProcessServices #Cundall #Foster &Partners @imperialcollege @icheme_official @Imtechtv @akzonobel @skanskasverige @ice_engineers @imeche_glr ⠀ ⠀ @theiet @ciwem @istructeldnymg @cibse @imeche_glr_ymp #shecanengineer #womeninstem #womeninengineering #transformingthefuture #wescentenary #INWED2019 @inwed1919 #TranformtheFuture
"I wish my parents were scientists so I could use microscopes all the time”🔬 . This was a comment of a 10-year-old pupil at the school where I conducted a ‘hands-on’ science outreach event this week. . Doing science communication is very gratifying, but for me science outreach projects are the most rewarding, especially when I’m working with children 💕 . Working directly with the public and organising this type of ‘hands-on’ project, when you get people to do scientific experiments themselves, can be daunting at the beginning (especially if you’re an introvert). But it’s so worth it. And it really isn’t that complicated to plan 👍 . One of the aims of my new project with microscopes (if you’ve been watching my stories you’re probably bored of hearing about it) is to encourage scientists and science communicators to do more of these science outreach activities. . My project is still in its early days, but the positive feedback I get from the children, and also the teacher’s enthusiasm, is so encouraging 😊. It’s quite funny because the teachers get as excited as the kids when they see cells under the microscope for the first time🔬 . Evidence that everyone can love science, as long as they have access to it, in a fun and accessible way. . Another shout-out to microscopes4schools.co.uk, the science outreach project I co-developed with Simon Bullock in the UK a few years ago and which is still going strong today. I’m so happy to make our project go international! 🌍 . Would you consider organizing a ‘hands-on’ science outreach activity? Or do you think it’s too daunting/complicated? Or perhaps you just don’t know where to start? Let me know your thoughts below. . Fun facts: I discovered that when I'm giving a talk, I tend to point with my middle finger 😆, I gesticulate like an Italian, and I cross my legs in the weirdest ways if I'm wearing high heels. 😬 . . . . . .

If you are interested in seeing how I actually make my living as a research scientist, check back into my stories over the next couple days. I am going to be documenting and sharing a day of field work. If you ever wondered what you can do with drones other than photography, I will show you how we use drones to collect data for environmental assessment. There will the beach, a ferry, lots of drones, and a golf cart. Guess where I am going and I will tell you if you are right! . . . . . #womenwhodrone #unitedbydrone #fromwhereidrone #dronestagram #droneoftheday #dronenature #dronelife #droneofficial #droneheros #skyhighlife #skybangerz #djiglobal #djicreator #airvuz #womeninSTEM

Peru’s Mysterious Infant Burials The ancient Peruvian site of Pachacamac is known to have been an important pilgrimage destination for sick travelers seeking cures during the Inca period of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. But the site had been occupied since as early as A.D. 200. Between roughly A.D. 900 and the beginning of the Inca period, the Ychsma culture inhabited Pachacamac. Archaeologists know primarily about Ychsma rulers, who built pyramidal palaces filled with simple, secular items related to weaving and animal husbandry. When a local lord died, the members of his household would be entombed in his palace, and his successor would build a new pyramid nearby. This spring archaeologists discovered a massive tomb at Pachacamac. The oval-shaped structure contains the remains of 36 adults and 43 children, all buried in the fetal position. Around the perimeter of the tomb’s reed roof were the remains of a dozen infants with their heads pointed toward the center of the 63-foot-long burial chamber below. Researchers estimate the tomb dates to about a.d. 1000 based on the style of pottery accompanying the burials. Other grave goods include gold and copper bracelets, wooden masks, and canine remains. Peter Eeckhout, an archaeologist at the Université libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, hopes the new find will illuminate the “social organization of the common people, which is, in our opinion, reflected in their burial practices.” To that end, he is attempting to discern if the infants atop the tomb were sacrificed or if they died of natural causes. Further, dating of the burials found in the chamber will determine whether the structure was a collective tomb reopened over successive generations for new burials or if all the bodies were entombed at the same time.

Delighted to be presented with the 2019 Mary Mulvihill Award on Thursday! Absolutely thrilled. My entry was a collection of profiles of wonderful Irish scientists, intended as a sampler for a children’s book in working on. The theme for this year was “science for the love of it”, as Mary had nothing but love and passion for science in all its forms. I chose to showcase these traits in the selected scientists, to show kids that while we should remain objective in our scientific endeavours, we often fall in love with curiosity along the way 👩🏻‍🔬✨ #RememberingMary #MaryMulvihillAward 📸: @nickbradshawphotos , as featured in @irishtimesnews @trinitycollegedublin @tcdalumni
Ancient Bones That Tell a Story of Compassion While it is a painful truism that brutality and violence are at least as old as humanity, so, it seems, is caring for the sick and disabled. And some archaeologists are suggesting a closer, more systematic look at how prehistoric people — who may have left only their bones — treated illness, injury and incapacitation. Call it the archaeology of health care. The case that led Lorna Tilley and Marc Oxenham of Australian National University in Canberra to this idea is that of a profoundly ill young man who lived 4,000 years ago in what is now northern Vietnam and was buried, as were others in his culture, at a site known as Man Bac. “There’s an emotional experience in excavating any human being, a feeling of awe,” Ms. Tilley said, and a responsibility “to tell the story with as much accuracy and humanity as we can.” . Photo 1: Almost all the other skeletons at the Man Bac site, south of Hanoi, are straight. But the man now called Burial 9 was laid to rest curled in a fetal position that suggests lifelong paralysis. Photo 2: Skeletons at the Man Bac burial ground. Their straight postures suggest that Burial 9’s fetal position was evidence of severe disability. Photo 3: The Man Bac burial site.

My Paeds Week is over 😢 I spent a fair amount of time in various clinics and joined a neonatal ward round to check on the tiny ones. 👶🏼 I’ve learnt more about allergies, weaning, normal growth and development, maternal and paediatric supplements as well as had a go at dietetic assessment of a couple of premature babies 👶🏽👶🏼. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦Talking to parents is definitely more stressful than talking to an adult patient! I didn’t get everything right and I have loads to learn still but I know I’ve made a great progress in a week. Time for Bank Holiday weekend with my Mum 💆🏼‍♀️I hope you all have a nice weekend ❤️ #studentdietitian #whatdietitianseat #clinicaldietetics #clinicalplacement #paediatricdietitian #paediatricdietetics #rainbowonaplate #nutritionanddietetics #womeninstem #womeninmedicine #healthcareprofessional #rd2be #katatkings #kingscollegelondon #dieteticsatkings #bankholidayweekend #familytime #qualitytime #latinamericanfood #lasiguanas #foodie #londonfoodie #dietitiansofinstagram #balanceddiet #balancedlifestyle

Our first order on its way! Now, it did take me a little while to get my assembly line in order, so my productivity rate’s a bit low, but I’m assuming I’ll speed up with practice! And just checking, do child labour regulations apply at weekends? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We were blown away by everyone’s response to our launch earlier in the week. Thank you so much to you all for taking the time to talk to us and share our new company with your networks. That ripple effect can make such a difference to a start-up business. And it made a huge difference to me. I was a bundle of emotion by the end of the day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t forget there’s 10% off this weekend with the code LAUNCH10, and if you know anyone you think would love our pjs, please tell them too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #shopsmalllove #shopindependent #smallbizuk #shopsmall #LoveMyBiz #SayYesToSuccess #SmallBizLife #MySmallBiz #femalefounder #mumpreneur #mumboss #femaleentrepreneur #shopsmalllove #independentfashionbrand #SayYesToSuccess #PursueHappy #LoveMyBiz #SmallBizLife #FindYourFlock #Calm_Collected #SmallBizSquad #CreateLounge #MySmallBiz #Hustlewithease #girlsinstem #girlsinscience #stemgirls #womeninstem #stemwomen #scienceisforgirls

I've been a fan of physicist Professor Brian Cox ever since my friend Hammad recommended his podcast 'The Infinite Money Cage' several years ago. This lecture combined stunning visuals, simulations, humor and a passion for the subject to give an extremely brief introduction to cosmology and put our place in the vast universe into perspective. There were mentions of my favorite scientist Richard Feynman, which led me to describe how cool he was to the young woman I had sold my extra ticket to and I promised I'd send her a copy of his biography. If you haven't read 'Surely you're joking Mr. Feynman', I highly recommend it. In a time when so many people, especially in first world countries, straight up deny scientific facts, to see a theater full of a wide variety of people (including Billy Bob Thornton 😁), who drove to Hollywood on a Friday evening (LA folks know how painful that is) to attend a physics lecture is reason to remain optimistic. . . . #scienceisawesome #science #cosmology #physics #nerds #stemgirls #womeninstem #neverstoplearning #colorsmakemehappy #elegantuniverse #milkyway #galaxy #infinityandbeyond

——> swipe for close up. . This small invertebrate was found at work in the woodland yesterday! 🦂 . This is called a Pseudoscorpion/false scorpion. It is a tiny member of the Class Arachnida with pincers that closely resemble a scorpion. They are usually only about 2-8mm (this one was the biggest I had found and it was relatively easy to take a picture) but some species can be up to 12mm. They catch their prey by using venom in the pincers to immobilise their prey, and then cover the prey with a corrosive fluid so they can easily digest it! . They overwinter in silk cocoons which they spin, and are only active during the warmer months. They go through three molts as a juvenile before reaching adulthood after several years. Their adult lifespan is usually about 2-3 years during which time they will have many broods of about 20 eggs. . False scorpions were first described by Aristotle, who was likely to have found them in scrolls of parchment where some of them like to live and feed on booklice! . How cool are these tiny guys?! Whenever we spot one of the students with one there is such commotion because everyone thinks it’s an actual scorpion😂 . Did you know we had these in Ireland or have you seen them where you live? . #ecology #woodland #invertebrates #falsescorpion #pseudoscorpion #science #scicomm #womenscientists #fieldecology #stem #womenwhoscience #womeninstem #thepinkscientist

270 статей в Википедии за год🔥 ⠀ Помните, мы писали про Клэрис Фелпс – афроамериканскую женщину, открывшую новый химический элемент теннессин? И чью биографию отказалась признавать «значимой» Википедия? ⠀ Так вот, статью про нее пыталась написать не менее замечательная женщина-физик Джесс Уэйд, постдок, занимающаяся исследованиями в области пластиковой электроники в Blackett Laboratory Имперского колледжа Лондона. И статья эта должна была стать лишь одной из 270 википедийных статей, которые Уэйд написала за год с целью привлечь внимание к впечатляющим достижениям женщин в области STEM. ⠀“Я задалась целью писать по одной статье в день, но иногда я слишком увлекаюсь, и получается три», - рассказывает исследовательница. ⠀ Почему это важно? Мало того, что очень хочется, чтобы каждая женщина, достигшая чего- то выдающегося в науке, получила известность и признание, которых она заслуживает. Но, что не менее круто, потом мы все можем читать про этих женщин и вдохновляться их потрясающими историями, черпать мотивацию для собственных достижений! ⠀ Вот несколько статей Уэйд: ⠀ 🌍Ким Кобб – американская исследовательница в области климата, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Cobb ⠀ 🗺Сьюзен Голдберг – первая женщина, занимающая должность главного редактора National Geographic, https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Голдберг,_Сьюзен ⠀ 👩‍🎓Эмма МакКой – первая женщина-профессор математики в Имперском колледже Лондона, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_McCoy ⠀ Фото: Dave Guttridge The Photographic.

This week, we received the news of Dr Barbara York Main OAM’s death. Barbara was a remarkable scientist. The world expert on trapdoor spiders, 'Australia's spider woman' wrote *the* book on our nation's eight-legged locals. She also shared her love and knowledge of spiders on David Attenborough documentaries. "I was interested in the small things — the insects were on a scale that I could relate to," she said. That may be the case, but she leaves a immense, lasting legacy. 🕷 Barbara was the first zoology PhD student at UWA, graduating at a time when women "were not encouraged" to pursue academia 👩🔬 Despite this, as Ann Jones from the ABC reports: "Dr York Main's love of these small things and the bush would drive her to become one of the most extraordinary scientists in Australia. She was the world's expert on trapdoor spiders, and she studied the world's oldest spider for decades. But more than that, she wrote about the environment so eloquently it brought tears to farmers' eyes.” 🕷 “The oldest spider the world has ever seen." For *43 years* Barbara tracked and checked up on one very special trapdoor spider, named Number 16. At 43 years old, this spider was considered one of the oldest spiders alive. Trapdoor spiders are known for not venturing far from home, and as a female, Barbara new that Number 16 would be in the same nook each time she visited. It was just one of her many discoveries. 🕷 Ann Jones reports that “She took pleasure in the small things of life - trapdoor spiders and clam shrimp, gorgeous crockery and table linens, a tumble-rumble garden and a house spider on the cornice. As her daughter said of Barbara 'she really knew how to live.'" The radio program on Barbara’s work is well worth a listen. Head to the ABC’s Off Track site and search for 'The World's Oldest Spider'. It’s an inspiring, heart-warming story. ~ Text from Ann Jones. Pictured here with her husband Bert Main, in 1955.

Spot the geologist in her not-so-natural habitat.

Family favourite) draped over a bowl to cool and harden up a bit to form the cave, studded with crystal sticks. @geolsoc #legominifig #bakingadventures #womeninstem #girlsinscience #geologyrocks

This week on #scilence (my weekly #podcast ), my guest talks about how draining #romantic #relationships can be. She usually weighs up, the #emotional investment vs focusing on her one true #love , which is her #love of #climatescience . Her need to #help save our #planet , usually wins.

Pioneer #pediatrician & #cardiologist & founder of #pediatriccardiology Dr. #helentaussig was born #onthisdayinhistory on May 24, 1898. #dyslexic she still excelled at school with the help of her father who was a professor of econ at harvard (her mother died from tuberculosis when she was 11). When she expressed an interest in medicine her father suggested public health as better suited for women. However, when she went to speak to the dean, he informed her that she was welcome to do the coursework but would never receive a degree. She wrote ✍🏻”It was one of those times in life when what seemed to be disappointment... later proved to be a great opportunity.” His refusal made her determined to study medicine. She then studied at harvard med school & Boston University, although both refused to grant her a degree. Nevertheless #shepersisted & published her first scientific paper on studies of ox heart muscles in 1925 while studying at BU. She then applied and was accepted at #johnhopkins where she received her #MD & went on to do a fellowship in cardiology because she did not receive the 1 internship reserved for women in internal medicine. However she did 2 years as a pediatrics intern becoming head of the pediatric cardiac clinic at the Harriet Lane Home of Johns Hopkins immediately after, one of the first of its kind, a position she kept until her retirement in 1963. Just as her future looked unstoppable she began to lose her hearing, making it impossible to listen to her patients heart beat. However, she learned to “listen” with her hands, feeling for murmurs. She approached Dr. Blalock to help cure blue baby syndrome issuing him the challenge “Dr. Blalock, you’ve done a very nice job closing this ductus; why can’t you build a ductus?... To some of our cyanotic children, it would mean a life for them.” Eventually they & Vivien Thomas, his surgical technician were able to successfully operate; its now known as the Blalock-Thomas-Taussig shunt. She became the 1st woman & 1st pediatric cardiologist to serve as president of the American Heart Association #womenmakinghistory #herstory #womeninstem #womeninmedicine #feministart #watercolorillustration
Incredibly proud of these intelligent, bright, powerful, and strong women! Math fuels your train, and you both fuel mine. Love y’all!💪🏻❤️🍾 #womeninstem #whoruntheworld #stangrad
Damnnn... STEM majors take FOREVER!!! Officially got my AA in Math and Science, with Honors, and I'm damn proud of it because these courses are wild sometimes. I will be heading to UC San Diego where I'll be getting my B.S in Human Biology, so I'm excited to start a new chapter in my life and get involved in research and pretty much prep to apply to dental school. But for now... I'm going to enjoy this summer ! 🌴🌞 I've met the coolest people at Cypress and I'm so glad to have crossed paths with all of you!💛 #Math #Science #WomenInSTEM #HumanBiology

🚘 “Well darlin', look out 'cause my hair is comin' down!”⠀ ⠀ Thelma and Louise really brought home to me in a very powerful way how few opportunities we give to women to come out of a movie theater feeling inspired and empowered by the female characters.⠀ ⠀ So that changed everything for me about my choices in that I really wanted to think about what the reaction that the women in an audience was going to be, what would they think about my character, so that’s been a very important part of my choices since then and impacts me to this day.⠀ ⠀ -Geena Davis ⠀ ⠀ Happy Anniversary Thelma and Louise. ⠀ Tag the Thelma to your Louise in the comments!

All those equations that threatened to fail us in math, has anybody ever really used them? 🤔

She always tells me that I inspire her, but little does she know that she has inspired me that much more. Never did she let her circumstances stop her from achieving her goals. She was told that "being a software engineer isn't a woman's career". Her hands were forced as she was told to take a semester off of school due to a medical procedure that was necessary and required healing time. Despite the odds being against her, she graduated, in 3.5 years, finishing with a 4.0 her last semester. ⁣ ⁣ Aside from being a proud big sister for her achievements, her dedication and willingness to not back down has left me in awe. You are going to do great things little sister, and I can't wait to watch you better this world. Congratulations @sabrinacharania ! #bualumnisisters
Mijn nieuwe column in het vakblad RCC K&L staat online en gaat over de relatie tussen klant en leverancier. Ik ga in op de uitspraak/stelling ‘klant is Koning’ en vraag me af wanneer je nu eigenlijk een goede klant bent: als je veel verdient aan je leverancier of wellicht wanneer je hen juist faciliteerd om te kunnen leveren wat je bij hen inkoopt? Persoonlijk geef ik de voorkeur aan faciliteren of ik nu een product, dienst of advies inkoop. Je leest ‘m via de link in mijn profiel! #uniflow #techtalk #anoukdijkstra #womenintech
I don’t like taking pictures of myself but I guess once in a while is okay. 🙃 I feel like y’all have been on this excruciatingly long journey with me lol well the day is here! It’s been rough...especially for someone that’s so hard on themselves. Honestly, tryna convince yourself of what you’re capable of is the hardest shit ever. But one thing Ive learned from this long ass journey is that you just have to believe in yourself, and never give up.
