Search Bias

Search engines are software systems designed to search webpages on the web, such as Google, yahoo,

These are some reasons why search bias is an issue.

It causes echo chambers, Filter bubbles, Limitations, and Post-truth politics.

Examples of some trusted websites

Prof. Lewis Dartnell gave some tasks to explore the Twitter account of a few celebrity scientists and active researchers.

I checked Brain Cox and observed the following on his Twitter page.

Attractive pictures

Write-up content is concise.

He posted upcoming events.

Finally, the second task is to compose a social media post about the news story
Must be concise
Must be catchy
May include hashtags
Then change the 30-35words to 6 words. I wrote about cheating gene

Lupus, also called systemic lupus erythematosus ,it is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system produces excessive antibodies that attack healthy tissue and organs instead of protecting the body from infections. This result in inflammation and damage to various parts of the body.

The name lupus was derived from the Latin for ‘wolf’, describing the pattern of the red facial rash, which resembles a wolf’s mask or a wolf bite.

Lupus commonly affects women in their childbearing years, although men, children and newborn babies can develop the disease, with a ratio of 9 women to 1 man diagnosed. Currently, up to 50,000 people in the UK have lupus, about 1 in 1000 people.

A butterfly-shaped rash across the face is a common symptom of lupus, and medically it is referred to as a “malar rash.” It typically appears on the cheeks and over the bridge of the nose, resembling the shape of a butterfly.

Butterfly-shaped “Malar Rash”

There is no single test to diagnose lupus. Diagnosis involves several blood tests, signs and symptoms, and imaging tests.

See a GP if you often get:
Joint pain and stiffness
Skin rashes, often over the nose and cheeks
Hair loss
Raynaud’s phenomenon (fingers turning white or blue in response to cold or stress)
Mouth or nose sores
Chest pain or shortness of breath
Swelling in the legs or around the eyes
Headaches or confusion

To conclude, lupus has no cure, but early diagnosis and treatment can help manage the symptoms and prevent complications. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you may have lupus.

Report for week three 10th of February 2023

The first YouTube video below (528Hz DNA Frequency UNLOCK Your Codons!!! Converted by la biosthetique method anti-age vie intense); the communication of this video is not clear enough.
The background music sounds; I’m not too fond of it because it sounds creepy, and the title doesn’t match.

The video could be more exciting and interesting to listen by reading  the worsds to the audience.

The second video (CBC|Approach to Anemia by Ninja Nerd) has quality content, detailed, colourful pictures, precise and clear communication to the audience.

To conclude, I prefer the second YouTube video because it is simple to understand and clear communication.

Public speaking

Prof. Lewis Dartnell gave us a challenging presentation task for one minute without preparation. Such as saying something about television, the sun, colours, heart, moon, trees, water, light, and the sea.

Initially, I thought I would not be able to say anything, I was nervous, but along the line, I became confident as I was able to slow down, think and talk.

For any presentation, I expect to be confident without being nervous and to use the key tips taught by prof. Lewis Dartnell, such as taking a pause, slowdown and continuing to talk.

Finally, I have learnt that in public speaking, I need to pause, slow down, and take a breath; my brain will pick up and then continue to talk, don’t rush to speak. Moreso,Past experiences and stories also help in public speaking.

Lab-grown Blood gives hope

This is the first time in the world that red blood cells that have been grown in a laboratory have been given to another person as part of a trial into blood transfusion.

For further information, check the link below.

Your platelets and anger

As our body changes when we get angry such as facial expression, same as a type of blood cell called platelets changes its shape when activated!
Take a look at the images below

Platelets are tiny, colorless blood cells that help the body form clots to stop bleeding when you get injured.

Why are they activated?

Platelets are activated in response to the following:
Cut or injury
Damage to a blood vessel
Blood disorders
Medical procedures

Anger and your body

In summary, getting angry is not bad; the important thing is that we learn how to manage it healthily so that it does not hurt other people or us.
If our platelets can help us, why don’t we help ourselves?
Would you be able to manage your anger? Yes.
Well done👏

Report For week 1

Blog Report for Week 1
26TH of January 2023

My first lecture on communicating science was on the 26th of January introduction to the module was taken by Lewis Dartnell and Brad Elliott. They engaged the students by asking why we had chosen the module. I was happy to express myself even though I am a shy person.

Later on, the lecture on communicating for behaviour change was also engaging with exciting videos; one key thing I learnt is ‘make people commit’ a YES or NO answer. Will you be committed to your project? Yes.

At the end of this module, I aim to be confident enough to share scientific information and knowledge effectively, basically haematology-related topics, with the general audience via graphics and short video presentations with beautiful graphic designs.

The first lecture I had in this module exposed me to new things, such as careers in communicating science.

In summary, this module is very cognitive, fun and engaging.
