Just leaned today the U. Hawai’i is hiring a mid-career biologist with microbiome interests. Folks, this pleasant island is hiring.

Update: This person has also now decided, completely arbitrarily, that it is unacceptable to use a can of bear mace as a paperweight

Not giving away the answer yet but you bring up another way of powering a trial. Instead of 90 percent power for effect X you could pick a sample size so the minimal clinically significant difference is the cutoff for rejecting the null.

Yes, in addition to helminths which have already been mentioned, Entamoeba parasites also increase microbiome diversity

My first video call for was a blast (even when the 10th graders started asking about designer babies). Signing up for another round, it's so cool to see this as one of the options. Great idea .

Helpful thread on how "short papers" work for bioRxiv, but not micropubs. I wonder how much of the conversation around this gets derailed by confusion over what a "micropublication" even is. If it has an intro and a figure, is it just a euphemism for "shorter than journals want"?

Cops spent the last two decades purchasing military grade/surplus armored vehicles based on outlandish hypothetical scenarios like "high speed hostage chase with a delivery truck," then one of those scenarios actually occurs and they just light up the hostage instead

Seems pretty shitty for the co-author to blame distracted pedestrians for "most" cell phone injuries when his own paper says more than half "occurred while the individual was driving and using a cell phone." Why quibble over what "most" means when you can just hate pedestrians?

Scenario B is an interesting twist! The polled idea came up in the "nanopub" breakout group at too—one thing we were unclear on was how short a paper could be and still be appropriate for , which may be why specified "micropreprint."

I'm guessing this will get deleted for being so catastrophically wrong, but this is literally saying "We didn't want someone to pick the lock so we didn't use one." The phrase "system generated string" is a red herring—they're pretending it's relevant who PICKED the password.

So grateful to have had the opportunity to talk with all these smart people about open science and preprints. pinpointed the reason it was so exciting—there are lots of cool projects and opportunities, sure, but there's also *optimism* about them. Optimism is fun.

It is a fallacy to believe that just because your interactions with someone have been good, they cannot possibly be a bully. This assumes that you can spot a bully simply through your interactions with them. I think this view is very much from the point of privilege.

21st century: If I overhear a single plot point ahead of time, the whole experience is destroyed, my alarm clock needs a spoiler warning 19th century: CHAPTER XXVI, The Murder Happens; and Everyone Is Surprised It Was the Colonel in the Drawing Room.

Here, and I respond to a claim that proportionality doesn't work for multi-omics data analysis. We show why this claim is wrong. Our response is very short, and a must-read for anyone interested in compositional data integration

Our group is committed to training the next generation of researchers from a broad experience base- no track record in population genetics? we can teach you that. no previous work in machine learning? no issue. this is a *training* opportunity

It costs $2,600 to publish in Behavior Genetics, for that much I will be petty about basically everything
