It's time for us professors who study to start hassling our university IT departments whenver they integrate extractive platforms into our professional workflow.

Feel free to repurpose my verbiage in your own emails.

    "In this paper, we show how religiosity contributes to mental health more generally, but especially in the particular case of its effect during the Covid-19 pandemic. We find that being religious significantly reduces the negative mental health outcomes associated with Covid-19 incidence in one’s social network. This beneficial effect of religiosity on mental health, in this context, is comparable to the effect of being employed."

    Steven Jackson, @stefan_laser_, @sister0 and I invite abstracts to the panel "Planetary Data Infrastructures" at the @stseasst and @4Sweb 2024 .

    The panel explores expanded engagements with networked infrastructures, both concrete and speculative, that help foster more response-able, aesthetic, cooperative, and sustainable planetary relations.

    Note! We invite conventional but also experimental formats: audiovisual performances, poetry - don't hold back!

    Census Bureau experts recommend NOT using the Post Enumeration Survey (PES) to update the 2020 population estimates because "While the PES is helpful in identifying coverage issues at the national level, it is not able to identify them as accurately at lower levels of geography because of its design. The PES sample size was simply too small."

    "In applied linguistics generally and bilingualism research in particular, psychological variables remain a much under-investigated sub-category of individual differences compared with cognitive ones.
