Established in , the Belmont Forum is a partnership of funding organizations, international science councils, and regional consortia committed to the advancement of transdisciplinary science. Forum operations are guided by the Belmont Challenge, a vision document that encourages:. International transdisciplinary research providing knowledge for understanding, mitigating and adapting to global environmental change. Forum members and partner organizations work collaboratively to meet this Challenge by issuing international calls for proposals, committing to best practices for open data access, and providing transdisciplinary training. To that end, the Belmont Forum is also working to enhance the broader capacity to conduct transnational environmental change research through its e-Infrastructure and Data Management initiative. Scientist and stakeholder support is made possible through Collaborative Research Actions CRAs , which are the Forum equivalent of a call for proposals. Since its establishment, the Forum successfully led 17 calls for proposals, supporting 99 projects and more than scientists and stakeholders, representing over 40 countries on 6 continents. New themes are developed through a scoping process and made available for proposals through the Belmont Forum website and its Grant Operations page.

All of this has us thinking that orderliness and the normal pace of things might go out the window, and corporations will have to struggle with the need to do more faster and adopt different strategies where survival over growth might become the predominant imperative for a while.

More and more, people are using internet forums as first place to look for information on health issues. However, the scientific medical information being provided there is often so complex that laypeople are barely able to form considered judgements on the content of much of the advice. One criterion which users apply instead in evaluating the information is the style of the language used. In an online experiment, the test persons placed greater trust in authors in health forums — and also found their recommendations more credible — when the articles were formulated in a neutral style, rather than containing many positive adjectives.
The study has been published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research. In an online experiment, the researchers showed articles in a health forum, formulated in different ways, to test persons. The articles contained an author’s assessment, in reply to a woman’s enquiry, as to how effective a certain medication was. Depending on the test conditions, the test persons read either a piece of advice containing a large number of positive adjectives such as “outstanding” and “excellent,” or a comment formulated in a neutral way.

INFORMS Open Forum
The COVID pandemic is a harsh reminder of the fact that, whether in a single human host or a wave of infection across continents, viral dynamics is often a story about the numbers. In this article we provide a one-stop, curated graphical source for the key numbers based mostly on the peer-reviewed literature about the SARS-CoV-2 virus that is responsible for the pandemic.
The discussion is framed around two broad themes: i the biology of the virus itself; ii the characteristics of the infection of a single human host. The COVID pandemic has made brutally clear the need for further research into many aspects of viruses. We also discuss a number of questions about the virus, and perform ‘back-of-the-envelope’ calculations to show the insights that can be gained from knowing some key numbers and using quantitative reasoning.

Our lonely little hearts are very big business. Online dating may appear to be the swiftest route to love, or something like it. But until you win the grand prize — never having to do it again — it always feels a last resort, the sign that you possess a fatal flaw that has prevented the achievement of true love through one of the more classic routes: pulling a stranger in a bar, meeting someone at a house party, sleeping with your employer.
In real life? Tell us again about how he talked to you on the tube! The proliferation of websites and dating apps has not necessarily been a good thing. I know quite a few people who have found love through OKCupid and Tinder — marriage, in a couple of cases — but I know far more who have been on two or three dates with nice people who have drifted and disappeared after a promising start.

Online discussion boards are here, whether we like them or not. Although few of us would ever consider teaching a face-to-face discussion section with 50, much less , students, many instructors supply only one discussion board for tens or even hundreds of students to use at once. I recently observed a colleague teaching an in-person lecture course of students. But when I observed the online discussion board, I saw few, if any, students actually discussing the reading assignment.
Each student was required to post a comment or question, which they did. If the pedagogical goal is solely to hold students accountable for a reading assignment, then an online submission box would serve better than an online discussion forum.
