Dementia is becoming one of the most intrusive diseases that crucially diminish the quality of life of those who suffer from it and the people around them. Seeing the struggles that dementia causes and the future developments of our population, it is important to tackle individual & demographic problems by cost-efficiently and effectively supporting the lives of people that suffer from dementia.
Every Monday, during a month on Researchista’s Blog you will find a new subject in which we invite one or more Researchers to talk about it. They are called “Special Guests” (because they are special and because they are guests). At the end of every subject (4th week of each month), Researchista is inviting anyone willingContinue reading “(38) Research on Food: make-your-own-little-Research.”
Whilst I am sitting here writing this first post for Researchista, various dark thoughts run through my mind. Did I bite off a bigger piece than I can chew? Are people going to think this is a dull piece of text? Can I combine blogging with my PhD work? Self-doubt and critique are a pretty common phenomenon that many of you are familiar with. These feelings are quite normal and adaptive because they make us go the extra mile. They urge us to practice that presentation one more time before getting on stage or to repeat those materials a last time before the test.
Be a little Researcher for few days! This week, I want to invite you to leave everything we know and learned about how our clothes are made aside.
You can listen to the post here: “So, ok, I buy a new piece of cloth (a t-shirt, trousers or a dress) from H&M or Zara for example, because it looks good and has a nice price, BUT I know that if the price is low, it probably comes from less developed countries. The label confirmsContinue reading “(27) Fashion&Research, part 3: wake up your motivation for change!”
Browsing through the Fashion Bible – “VOGUE” just like I would do with a book, I am looking for its introduction. It took me 12 pages of pictures with clothes and accessories to find the compass through a book: the introduction.
When I was small, “Sailor Moon” was one of my favourite cartoons, especially when she and her girlfriends gathered in a circle and took out their magic sticks with magic powers from the nature: fire, air, water and earth – to unite their powers and fight the evil… When these elements are apart they have one power, but when combined, they canContinue reading “(19) Magic 3: Policy – Academia – Business”
Dear Researchista friends, Our group is increasing and maybe is a good idea to summarise what Researchista is about and what have I been up to since the web-site was launched. So, first things first. Researchista is about bringing Research in the mainstream. This is because at the moment, Research is probably not often seen as veryContinue reading “(18) Researchista: first 3 months.”
Intellectual work demands a lot of energy and effort. Apart from eating a lot of nuts and chocolate for brain, one also needs to be fit to be able to stay long hours in front of the computer. Someone told me once, a PhD student with no particular health problems was so exhausted from writingContinue reading “(14) Writing & no RSI.”
Ah, PhD life… So, that’s me and another PhD going to Spain, Palma-de-Majorca. Tasty food, beautiful beach, warm sand and refreshing breeze from the sea. This is me and my sister going few months later to Japan, in Tokyo & Yokohama, where I attended a world congress; thousands of researchers gathered there. Not too bad.. indeed, I couldContinue reading “(13) Writing and RSI (my story)”
