The remote-learning response to COVID-19 is remarkable. It also highlights a problem.

US higher education has a national graduation rate that is well below the performance of other developed countries and behind projected economic need (pre-COVID) for a well-educated workforce.Research shows that students earn higher grades and complete courses in greater numbers when taught by faculty who are trained to implement proven teaching practices.Quality teaching is more important now than ever. Investing in faculty is the most cost-effective way to drive stronger student outcomes year ...

The hunt for a coronavirus vaccine – a perilous and uncertain path

The pressing need to find a solution to the pandemic means risks and shortcuts may have to be takenCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageThe stakes could hardly be higher – the prize still tantalisingly out of reach.

Why we like a good robot story

Jim and Kerry Kelly live in a small town in the rural Midwest. Their sons, Ben, six, and Ryan, twelve, attend the local public school. Their school district is always short staffed. The closest town is 40 miles away and the pay for teachers is abysmal.This year, the district’s staffing has hit a critical low: Class size will have to be huge, and there’s limited money for aides who might help with the teaching load, which will further discourage teacher applications. The school board considers ac...

Academics refused permanent UK visas because of field trips abroad

Ebola volunteering in Guinea and gender research in Bangladesh fall foul of hostile environment lawsWhen Dr Nazia Hussein spent six months researching class and gender identity in Bangladesh for her PhD at Warwick University in 2009, she had no idea that, a decade later, the Home Office would use this to refuse her application for permanent residency.Hussein, a Bangladeshi expert on gender, race and religion, now a lecturer at the University of Bristol, was “absolutely shocked” when her applicat...

Exploring medical technologies

Image from Torange A lesser known fact about my career is that I have worked intermittently in medical science for quite several decades. One of my earliest jobs back in the 1980s was managing the educational technology and learning resources for several nurse education centres across the South West of England. During this time I also worked closely with several leading NHS surgeons and physicians as they developed new techniques and explored new technologies. I was involved for example...

December 2019 Media Recommendations + 2019 Wrapup

This month’s new media recommendations are all podcasts; although, there is some other media types to check out in my 2019 wrapup. Dr. Lehmiller has made the rounds discussing his survey about sexual fantasies, but his spot on NPR’s What We Do was one of the best interviews about it, no doubt in part to the skilled host. Another NPR podcast, Planet Money, ventured into the billion-dollar sperm bank industry. Check out this episode of Sex Out Loud featuring Tina Horn, who discusses making comics ...

We’re always expanding our knowledge about sexuality, gender, and related topics, but this summer ushered in a flurry of news that really exemplifies this. It’s so exciting! Let’s jump in. Note that relevant links are included in each section...

LAUSD’s Measure EE faces ‘tough road’ if turnout is low in June, polls say

A new poll indicates Measure EE is likely to fail if voter turnout on June 4 is as low as expected in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Probolsky Research’s poll suggests a higher-than-average turnout would make the district’s proposed parcel tax competitive, but if turnout drops too much, the measure will struggle to reach the necessary two-thirds majority. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a chance, according to Adam Probolsky, the company’s president. “People are persuadable,” he said. “Th...

Science of Sex: Finger Length and Sexual Orientation (The 2D:4D Ratio)

More than fifteen years ago, when I was still in high school, I had heard there was something about your hand shape that could be linked to being gay. I’d heard this repeated throughout the years but always in a way that indicated it was an urban legend, simply a myth. Why did I think this way? Because no one discussed the science; they just held up their hands and explained this fact. This month’s Science of Sex explains the theories about why hand shape and, specifically, finger length correla...

Fantasy and reality

Image from Pixabay Here are some of my recent (and random) thoughts about the future, science fiction and technology reality. It's not meant to be an essay, but is more a free flow of ideas around these themes. My lifelong interest in technology has almost certainly been inspired by reading science fiction novels. When I was still at school, I read voraciously - Isaac Asimov, Poul Anderson, Robert Heinlein, A. E. van Vogt, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick - books from all of these write...

Practicing Entrepreneurship While Still In College

There are numerous highly visible examples of extraordinarily successful entrepreneurs who started their first ventures in college. A university campus is a great place to meet people and bounce new ideas, many of which may seem to have great business potential. Should you wait till you graduate, get a job and ensure a steady (salaried) income before plunging into the often risky domain of entrepreneurship? Would it not be better to capitalize on a great idea right away, before someone else doe...
