If referees are consistently negative about your paper and it’s rejected by several journals, this may be a symptom of a biased & broken peer review system. There is of course another possibility...

I always say that part of what I love about medicine is that it keeps you humble. Trying to convince myself that getting locked into two different staircases while rounding (once ending up outside in a wet snow) is part of the same process.

Bom dia. Hoje viajo ao Egito para participar da COP 27. O combate às mudanças climáticas deve ser um compromisso do Estado brasileiro. Trabalharemos pelo futuro do nosso país e do planeta, que é um só e de todos.

The McNamara Fallacy (as coined by Yankelovich): Step 1: Measure what can be easily measured Step 2: Disregard that which cannot be measured easily Step 3: Presume that which cannot be measured easily isn’t important Step 4: Say that which can’t be easily measured doesn’t exist

In public talks, I am often asked what the impact of #AI might be on the human condition (work&life). I then recall the Collingridge’s dilemma and the Amara’s Law: “We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run.”

Volevo farvela vedere, settimane di lavoro da mucchietto di tavole ad una viola Volevo farvi vedere anche tutto ciò che è caduto facendo un passo indietro, importante come ciò che è rimasto. Ricerca sempre bellezza ed armonia, mai sterile perfezione.

ho fatto il prelievo del sangue e per qualche perversione che non so mi affascina tantissimo guardare il sangue che velocissimo raggiunge la provetta. ora vado a comprare le brioches per colazione perché ho anche godimenti normali.

“As an editor, these are the notes I find myself scribbling in the margins of so many manuscripts: Clarify. Don’t get this. What does this mean?...”

Don’t publish for the sake of publishing. Only publish to move science forward. Quality over quantity. Even if everyone pushes you into the opposite direction.

Sull’incidente diplomatico con la Francia non c’è molto da dire. Elect a clown, expect a circus.

In an age of information overabundance, critical ignoring is as important as critical thinking.

who is building an open source and decentralized science publishing, review, and view platform? a play to make scientific development in journals more innovative, open, and less bureaucratic

The world’s elite have arrived at #COP27 on hundreds of private jets to lecture you about climate change. Sponsored by Coca-Cola.

COP27 is sponsored by Coca-Cola - the world’s top plastic polluter, who produce 120 billion throwaway plastic bottles a year.

Pfizer says its bivalent Covid booster induced more antibodies against Omicron BA.4/5 viruses than its monovalent. Some research groups don’t see that benefit; others do. This I know: Press releases don’t give enough data to answer a question like this.

Continueremo a fornire il bollettino con i dati #covid19 giornalieri, perché la trasparenza ha connotato tutta la nostra strategia regionale di contrasto all’emergenza sanitaria. Per questo, continuiamo a perseguire questa linea in nome della massima trasparenza.

Academics: it’s ridiculous to think that anyone would pay for the prestige of being Twitter verified. Also academics: I need someone to cover this $11k fee because I want to publish my work in a more prestigious journal

The reasons I think it’s essential for #ScienceTwitter and #MedTwitter to stay with @Twitter right now —Spread the truth/facts/good info —Counter & stand up to mis/dis-information —No suitable alternative for reach —There’s still block and mute —Don’t give up hope for improvement
