random_walker Expertise is important for scholars, but after 5-10 years the benefits of continuing to deepen your expertise are tiny compared to broadening it.

Universities are perfectly set up to prevent breadth of expertise by hiring people for life and putting them into siloed departments.

astefanowitsch Finde toll, wie die Politik hier die Arbeit von Lehrenden und Prüfenden würdigt. Jetzt wissen wir wenigstens, wofür wir hunderte von Überstunden gemacht haben! twitter.com/tobias_schulze…

christophnebgen Nachtrag: Und man erlebt das als Strafverteidiger in irgendeiner Form JEDEN TAG. Der Fairness halber muss man sagen, dass es auch rechtstreue Polizeibeamte gibt. Man erkennt die regelmäßig daran, dass sie pensioniert oder bei den Kollegen außerordentlich unbeliebt sind.

christophnebgen Die Vorsitzende Richterin bekam ob dieser Ignoranz und unverhohlen geäußerten Rechtsstaatsfeindlichkeit der Beamten zwischenzeitlich Schnappatmung, aber letztendlich fühlt sich für diesen Zustand des Polizeibeamtentums niemand verantwortlich. 6/6

thetracysimone Advice from my PI: “no one knows anything in grad school. Some people have more confidence and do a better job at hiding their struggles. You’re here to gain the tools to learn and create new ideas. Not become a know it all.”

And that’s why who you pick as a mentor matters.

greg_doucette I "highlight positive police actions" by paying my taxes so they can have a paycheck. Not f*cking up is a basic requirement for any job.

melvinjohnsonp A paper I reviewed for got two low scores because: "I worry that this paper is the outcome of a lab with insufficient resources to run meaningful, representative experiments on BERT training." I strongly argued against this sentiment & I'm happy to see it accepted :)
