Dear fellow science policy practitioners and aficionados: We kindly invite you to submit an abstract to our Science Policy session at the2022 American Geosciences Union Fall Meeting in Chicago (and online everywhere). This session is meant to showcase efforts by the science community to develop and inform effective public policies. We encourage contributions from scientists, policy makers, and science advocates! As a reminder, abstracts are due by August 3 at 23:59 EDT // 03:59 (Aug 4) GMT. Abstract submission information can be found here (description copied below): https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm22/prelim.cgi/Session/160053 Session ID: 160053 Title:SY022. Science Policy (Science and Society Section) Description: Science is essential for developing effective and equitable public policies. On topics from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change and beyond, scientists have the responsibility to provide timely, evidence-based, objective analysis to policy makers and decision makers throughout all levels of government. In this session, we seek to shine a light on the science community’s recent efforts to restore faith in the role of science in policy, from local- and community-level engagement to Federal policy making. We encourage abstract submissions that highlight specific science-based public policy initiatives as well as abstracts more broadly focused on science policy collaborations. We welcome submissions from scientists, policy makers, and science advocates who have worked at the interface of science and public policy. We especially want to highlight science communication and engagement practices that enable effective collaborations between scientists and policymakers. All the best, Gifford Wong // IDA STPI Kira Homola // University of Rhode Island Jamie Neely // Northwestern University Karen Akerlof // George Mason University Brittany Webster // AGU

I really hate my life because I was getting no kind of action, no adventure, I mean nothing and only studies! I feel like Edward Norton in Fight Club, longing to meet my Brad Pitt to get my Brad Pitt to get me some fun. I was looking online for best [url=https://www.theresearchguardian.com/services/thesis/information-technology-thesis-writing/]IT thesis help[/url] uk, but in the way of my surfing, I came across my lifesaving cure. I purchased a crap load of Cannabis Strains from Riot Seeds, and trust me, my coming weeks entered a riot of fun
Innovation is the process of turning scientific results into useful products that solve problems. Traditional science education does not include training in innovation. This forum will address the process that goes from result through prototype to product.
Organisms from plants to animals; from unicellular to multicellular; from extraterrestrial to terrestrial.

As you may recall, Therapoid is using the Polygon blockchain for layer 2 on Ethereum to nearly remove the “gas” (transaction) fees driven by Ethereum.
That is, ScienceCoins are using Polygon for issuance and management.
Polygon’s native token is MATIC. One might expect SCI to pair trade at some point with MATIC.
Here is some further background…
Polygon’s MATIC rallied 25% on the day after a series of announcements and product launches. On Wednesday Polygon announced the launch of Polygon ID integration. Polygon ID is a self-sovereign identity solution powered by ZK cryptography that brings huge potential for DAO governance, according to the company.
Polygon, an Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution, has also recently claimed to have obtained a major carbon neutrality (a balance between emitting and absorbing carbon) milestone, which could be contributing to the price uptick. Polygon announced earlier this week that it had partnered with KlimaDAO (a decentralized collective of environmentalists, developers, and entrepreneurs) as part of its environmental initiative.

Polygon’s MATIC has been trading in an upward trajectory over the past 7 days.
Some analysts are also attributing MATIC’s recent rally to a few weeks of whale accumulation. Santiment, the on-chain data provider, tweeted that sharks and whales holding MATIC have been in a large accumulation trend for the last six weeks.
“The tiers of holders ranging from 10K to 10M coins held have collectively added 8.7% more to their bags in this timespan,” tweeted Sanitment.
Matthew Dibb, COO and co-founder of Stack Funds, told CoinDesk that the rallies for MATIC, ATOM and AVAX are being held up on low volume.
“Because of this we would expect that any decent drop in equities will lead to a selloff in alts,” said Dibb.
He also noted that bitcoin dominance (BTC.D) has dropped considerably in the past few days from its high at +48%.
Dibb explained that this is because there has been relative strength in ether as well as litecoin vs. bitcoin which has led to BTC dominance losing some ground.
“Our expectation is that should a further selloff occur, we will see BTC.D continue to head north to short term highs,” added Dibb. “We see this as a temporary situation."

Call for the creation of a DeSci logo!
DeSci (decentralized science) is rapidly gaining traction. However, there is no logo/icon for it. This is a call for the creation of a logo that would be freely available to everyone with no copyright.

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPGs) are the most devastating of all brain tumors. There are no effective treatments, hence almost all children will die of their tumor within 12-months. There is an urgent need for novel effective therapies for this aggressive tumor.
This is the work around the therapeutic development of fenretinide.
