Joanne Manaster117,820Join Joanne Manaster and @104733415626297507218  as we welcome @113253012514597335585  author of the NYT bestselling book, NeuroTribes: The Legacy of #Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity. This hour long hangout will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 6:30pm EDT/5:30pm CDT/3:30pm PDT From the hardcover edition: A groundbreaking book that upends conventional thinking about autism and suggests a broader model for acceptance, understanding, and full participation in society for people who think differently.   What is autism? A lifelong disability, or a naturally occurring form of cognitive difference akin to certain forms of genius? In truth, it is all of these things and more—and the future of our society depends on our understanding it. WIRED reporter Steve Silberman unearths the secret history of autism, long suppressed by the same clinicians who became famous for discovering it, and finds surprising answers to the crucial question of why the number of diagnoses has soared in recent years.   Going back to the earliest days of autism research and chronicling the brave and lonely journey of autistic people and their families through the decades, Silberman provides long-sought solutions to the autism puzzle, while mapping out a path for our society toward a more humane world in which people with learning differences and those who love them have access to the resources they need to live happier, healthier, more secure, and more meaningful lives.   Along the way, he reveals the untold story of Hans Asperger, the father of Asperger’s syndrome, whose “little professors” were targeted by the darkest social-engineering experiment in human history; exposes the covert campaign by child psychiatrist Leo Kanner to suppress knowledge of the autism spectrum for fifty years; and casts light on the growing movement of "neurodiversity" activists seeking respect, support, technological innovation, accommodations in the workplace and in education, and the right to self-determination for those with cognitive differences.Read Science!

CERN293,686Open problems in particle physics after the Higgs discovery The discovery of the Higgs boson is the most significant outcome so far of the LHC experiments. This discovery addresses issues in our understanding of nature that have been on our table for almost 50 years. It also provides us a more solid basis on which to continue our exploration of the other open problems in particle physics, such as: what is the nature of dark matter? What is the origin of matter? Do all forces of nature unify? The future programme of the LHC, and the future facilities that CERN is planning and that will be presented in the following two talks, are tailored to address these questions. Michelangelo Mangano M. Mangano studied theoretical physics at Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy). He held research appointments in the Physics Department of Princeton University (’84-’86), in the Theory Group of Fermilab laboratory (Chicago, ’86-‘88), in the Pisa laboratory of INFN (Italy, ’89-‘95). Since 1995, he works in the Theory Group at CERN. His research activity is focused on the study of high energy particle collisions, to understand the fundamental laws of nature through the observation of particles’ interactions. Between 1988 and 2000, Mangano has worked with the CDF experiment at Fermilab, where he contributed to the discovery of the top quark. Since 2009, he runs the LHC Physics Centre at CERN (http://cern.ch/lpcc), which contributes to the interpretation of the data arising from the LHC. ____________________ CLIC, a future linear collider at the foot of the Jura The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a linear accelerator under development. CLIC will allow to study high-energy collisions between electrons, e-, and positrons, e+. Contrary to protons, which collide in the LHC, the electron and its antiparticle, the positron, are genuine point-like particles. Proton-proton and electron-positron collisions are governed by different elementary forces. In general electron-positron collisions can be studied to higher precision and provide information that is complementary to what can be learned at the LHC. The on-going CLIC accelerator development, the physics questions it can address and the corresponding particle detector will be described in the presentation. Lucie Linssen Lucie Linssen is a senior physicist at CERN, where she is employed since 1986. She obtained a Master degree in Physics from the University of Leiden in the Netherlands in 1981 and a PhD from the University of Amsterdam in 1986. She is specialised in the design, optimisation and construction of particle detectors and of complete particle physics experiments. Within CERN she has held roles of technical coordination for the construction and operation of particle physics experiments and has served as the deputy department leader of the CERN Physics department. She is currently the spokesperson of the CLIC detector and physics collaboration (CLICdp), involving the design, technology R&D and physics studiesCERN60 webcast: "Past, present, future: LHC and future possibilities" by Guenther Dissertori, Lucie Linssen and Michelangelo Mangano2014-11-20 19:30:0022

TakePart43,555Seven years ago former Vice President Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth, kick-starting a global conversation about climate change (available on Google Play: http://goo.gl/ElYcc). The issue is as pressing as ever and Gore and Jeff Skoll, the film's executive producer, want to hear your ideas (http://youtu.be/ih3fEHv4wqA).  Throughout the coming week add your thoughts and questions in the Science on G+ Community (http://goo.gl/39w5t). Gore and Skoll will choose the most insightful participants to join them in a live Hangout on Air on June 11th at 2PM EST - come back then to tune in to the Conversation! Google+ Conversation with Al Gore about Combating Climate Change2013-06-11 20:00:002180

Today is the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 14 landing on the moon. And yesterday we lost the last living member of that crew – Edgar Mitchell. I first met Ed when I was at MIT as he was studying there at the same time. Ed was certainly involved in advanced mental century perceptions aka mind reading. Not my bailiwick but I respected him for his persistence and dedication to studying the unknown. I'm sorry to lose another of our Apollo Lunar Pioneers. RIP Ed.

Very thorough post with practical suggestions for faculty, departments and professional societies.

Same Auld Lang Syne: Dearth of Diversity in 2016 American Chemical Society  Awards

Four days into the new year and it’s déjà vu all over again. The American Chemical Society (ACS), which has 158,000 members, just announced its 2016 National Award winners. Once again, gender inequity and lack of diversity are glaringly apparent:  95% of awardees are men, and a higher proportion present as White. The ACS data show that men are overrepresented not only in award nominations, but also in award success whereas women are underrepresented:

In the 2015 nominee pool, 83% are male and 17% are female compared to ACS membership demographics of 71% male and 29% female.

Why is this important? Awards and prizes are widely accepted markers of professional achievement that influence salary, promotion and tenure decisions, to shape and advance careers. The typical explanation for the dearth in gender diversity in award line-ups is that of a pipeline problem, with the prediction being that as more women join STEM fields and make their way up the academic ladder, their share of prizes will concomitantly increase. But this has not happened: contrary to the pipeline hypothesis, women’s share of prestigious awards has fallen in the past decade, compared to the decade before. Closer analysis shows that women receive a disproportionate share of teaching and service awards, at the expense of prizes that recognise research contributions. This is known as The Matilda Effect.

For more on how STEM professionals can implement gender equity and diversity in prizes and awards, read our latest blog post: http://www.stemwomen.net/american-chemical-society-awards/#more-1024
