Lunella Lafayette AKA Moon Girl. All of the greatest minds in the Marvel Universe share one thing in common: they’re not smarter than this kid! Surpassed by nobody in terms of intellect, this nine year old prodigy is officially Marvel Comics’ smartest character. “The SMARTEST  there is!” This preteen genius inventor uses her vast intelligence to oppose villains and invents gadgets to bring them down. Check out here hit monthly series “Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur” by the creative team of Brandon Montclare and Natacha Bustos. Swipe left for the Marvel 101 video.

Happy Fact Friday!! Today, I’m going to answer the age old question, “What is a statistic?”
************************************************ 💡In the most simple terms possible, a statistic is just a piece of data. It’s information. It can be representative of your data, or it can be complete nonsense! ⠀
⠀
⁉️ Why do we care? ⠀
✅Great question, have you looked around? Everything about our life seems to be driven by someone’s information about the world. Some examples include, “100% of the worlds population has hair. Candidate Y has a 47.3% chance of winning the election. This treatment cures 97% of reported patients.”
As you probably noticed, a lot of these types of statistical statements are garbage. This is why it is so important to understand what statistics is doing.
⠀
📈📉In its best, most mathematical (and pretty) form, statistics is a means of reducing loads of information into representative values. We like to call this the “Principle of Data Reduction.” (Shoutout to Casella and Berger) ⠀
🔑🔑We like the word representative. We want to be able to squeeze all of the information that data is hiding. We want to be able to see the data in just a few values. We want to be able to design experiments, to ask questions, to predict outcomes. All of these come down to the statistic (and some math theory with computer science). ⠀
🔥 When you see the word statistic, percent, or chance, ask yourself if you really believe that this value is truly representative of the data in question. Sometimes a bit of skepticism can be helpful when looking at statistics.

Above all, stay calm! If you’re reading the question, and you have an idea of what the answer is in your head, look for that answer in the choices. If it’s there, then go with it. If it’s not, then eliminate any answer choice that is definitely wrong. If it’s a 50/50 guess, it’s okay to go with your gut unless you have a factual reason to go with the other answer. Don’t second guess yourself, and don’t spend too much time on questions that are too hard or confusing. Come back to them if and when you have time at the end.

And, you already know about me (peep the last takeover I did!) 🗣It’s Jari L. Javier here at #csfn ! I am ~also~ a NU IN-PREP scholar 👩🏽‍🏫 I am aiming to optimize a method that allows us to see multiple kinds of molecules for #cell type identification in the retina 👀🧠! Think about the #molecules as letters in an alphabet. I want to figure out what combination of letters belong to each cell type, what the molecular “name” of each cell type is. Cell type ID is the first step to understanding how cells function! I like #scicomm #babyanimals #neuroscience and #ecology 
In PREP, my #research #motivates me and it can because if the support and friends I have to keep me going! 🥰😭🙌🏽👩🏽‍🏫👩🏻‍🏫👩🏽‍🏫👨🏻‍🏫 #nuin #northwestern #womeninstem #latinxinstem #blackinstem.

With “Free Comic Book Day” being this Saturday (May 4) B-SCI would like to use this month to highlight some of the Black Scientist within comic culture starting with Dr. Adam Bernard Brashear, better known as Blue Marvel. Created by Kevin Grevioux, a Howard University Alum who holds degrees in Microbiology and Genetic Engineering, Blue Marvel is one of Marvel Comic’s most powerful and brilliant characters. After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Theoretical Physics from Cornell, Adam became the lead scientist working on a project to create a new energy source by harnessing antimatter. During the initial test run of his negative reactor the laboratory exploded turning him into a living antimatter reactor and possibly the strongest being on Earth! Currently Blue Marvel is using his talents as a member of the Ultimates alongside fellow super genius T’Challa Aka The Black Panther. Be sure to stop by @amalgamphilly and @atomiccitycomics this Saturday to get some free comics and to see more of this character. Source @Marvel #BSCI #Science #STEM #Blackscientist

We have three great events coming up this afternoon:⠀
⠀
At 12:20, a talk by Dr. Scott Jackson (UMass ECO) on A Proposed Method for Assessing the Vulnerability of Road-Stream Crossings to Climate Change: Deerfield River Watershed Pilot.⠀
⠀
From 2-3pm, we're having a department research poster session in the lobby of the Design Building.⠀
⠀
And at 3:30pm, we are absolutely thrilled to be hosting this year's invited Bromery guest lecturer, Dr. Ludmilla Aristilde, for a talk on Molecular Connections in the Cycling of Water and Carbon in Terrestrial Ecosystems⠀
⠀

Make a list of questions that you would like to ask during the interview. Pick questions that will demonstrate your interest in the job and the company. .

This might include commenting on the news you learned from the company website, and then asking a question related to it. Also ask questions about the job you will be expected to perform, like:
⠀⠀
1. What are the day-to-day responsibilities of this job?

2. How will my responsibilities and performance be measured? By whom?

3. Could you explain your organizational structure?

4. What computer equipment and software do you use?

5. What is the organization's plan for the next five years?

I have been told ‘No’ more times than I can count. I’ve also failed more times that you can imagine. .
.
A lot of times the world only sees the smile after the 100 rejections or the celebration after you survived a storm that almost destroyed every piece of your being. .
.
So many times we feel ashamed to share our experiences, the experiences that have molded us. I know I’ve been ashamed to let people know about the times I’ve felt humiliated and ashamed of my failures. .
.
Im here to let you know, no one on this platform is perfect. We all have a story before every picture we post. I hear you, i see you and I appreciate your story. Failing is a part of the journey.
