Why scientists should communicate science

Being a scientist is an excellent job, and science does not include research, calculation, doing experiences and get numbers and results, being a scientist is a way to see and to interpret the world, it’s a style of life and of thinking.

In order to show the value of what a scientist is doing, he should communicate his work to other he should show to the world a part of his everyday life.

So science is also about communication.

Generally, this communication is delivered to a variety of audience most of them are a non specialist in scientific field so in order to do that, the scientist must give talks, write papers and communicate with audience through every possible way from the peer reviewed article to any public tweet or any other social media. in order to educate people and inform them about his finding.

Publishing science and communicate it, enable the scientist to clarify, and illuminate the public point of view, it helps to spread culture, to fight ignorance, to increase public understanding of science, when the public enjoysscience, it’s suggested there would presumably be more funding, progressive regulation, and trained scientists. I can mention the example of COSMOS television show that has influenced a whole generation so a lot of those who watched the TV show decided to become a scientist.

the more the culture of science is spread, the more we could get scientist and engineer around and that will make nations grow economically,

Also, it can explain the fee and the costs needed to the scientific research, when people know the importance of it they feel like their money with it. It can also help to find more financial resources to the research.

spreading health science, culture for example makes people to benefit of better health condition and healthy environment to live in. it can bring hope to sick people,because a patient of cancer should always be interested in the latest finding of researchers and if they have find a remedy to his condition

We actually live in a world of technology and to communicate science make it more understandable and controllable by the public

Propagation of science enables the reduction in the spread of myths, false information and non secular explanations of the world.

it has also an imaginative way by opening a window on science fiction, that make people more creative.

It also makes people feel more empathy with each other and with the other species. it can even affect our ethical point of view to the world example doing experiments on animal or even to humans.

It affects also the happiness of people if they understand how their brain and psychology works.

A new field of science like personal development, science affects directly the well being of people so it should be widely communicated

It affects also by a direct way the consumption behavior, when neuroscience is used in marketing

Governments also can might also benefit from more scientific literacy, since an informed electorate promotes a more democratic society. [1]

However, with all those arguments to communicate science, we should consider that scientist is human too, and mistakes could happen, They should be sure of the information while communicating them to the public and relativise them.

An effective communication must be considered too, so we could be sure that the information was clearly understandable and to avoid misunderstanding of the information. but that doesn’t mean that we underestimate the importance of science communication, which have a very important effect on the everyday life of people, like it was discusses above.

Science communication is able to decrease the gap between science and social

Manipulation

One of the worst things at life is finding out that you have been manipulated ( wiem) 

A story of a girl grew to become a bitch

When she was little girl, she was starving for love and attention
She was so little she needed to be accepted, but all what she has got was criticism
She adopted the idea that she is always wrong , and that become her believe.
She lost her self respect and confidence.
Her mother in particular never accepted her the wa she is , deep inside her she was wishing if her daughter was different , was more religious, maybe more obeient.
She felt that and she want to satisfy her mother and other people around her, and she became to pretend, she lost herself, she got tired, she could not recognise herself.
and she was growing day after day, she start discovering the opposit sex ” men”.
or let’s say by that age they were ” boys”, she seek to get some attention to compensate what she need, but she was rejected over and over every time.
And this time beside of loosing herself respect , her search for love and acceptation , she looked like a bitch.
and with this new ticket in her back, she lost the respect for her own body and she hated the fact that she is a woman.
She couldn’t understand that being a bitch sometimes have nothing to do with the body, it’s a stat of mind, and she was a bitch because she traded her personality, feeling and let’s say in some point her body ( when she let man look to her ) over attention , some fake attention.
And she grew up and she became an adult, she get some new experiences with some new friends, she felt love she get attention and she felt accepted, but that doesn’t resolved the problem, her biggest problem which is hating herself.
Also that doesn’t make her pure and chaste her trust in some people make her became naive and indirectly a bitch one more time, but this time for different reasons, this time she became a bitch by good intention.
Now she think that maybe she have “the bitch curses”
But she close her eyes and think “oh mom, if you only could love me the way I’m , I would never end up this way”

languages difficulties

Language is just a way to communicate, it’s not science, it’s not something fixed or stable
It changes according to time and condition in evaluate and it would vanish anytime.
I agree that it’s something amazing, but I hate how some people deal with it and how they became so strict about apply its rules.
They make it look difficult; it makes it look ugly
So what if you forget an “e” in French or that thing of “é” and “è” why it should make a big difference.
Or in Italian all those one letter differences, or in Arabic this story of the letter “A” how it changes its form.and more and more in all languages.
That makes it look impossible, I‘ve been studying French for 19 years now and I still not good at it, I know Arabic since I start learning, writing and reading and I still make mistakes on it, I can’t get how people could be perfect at those things. that give me headaches, it’s supposed that rules are made to make life easier but I don’t think so, it makes it complicated for me

I want to die

 

some days i wake up and the only thing I do is repeating in my head that I want to die
actually I don’t know why
I’m not sad not bad and not shy
but I keep thinking that I want to die

I work I laugh I eat and I lie
so nobody could know that I want to die

Hi guys I hope you are all fine
I’m glad to share with you the work made by my friend Mrs sofia a doctor in sociology she made this study basing on a comparisation between my blog and the blog of Yen a young vietnamian women.
I’m happy to be a part of this, at least what I’m writing could be interesting for someone

I hope that this study would help someone or maybe it would help to make the world a better place, I dob’t know how but we can’t never underestimate the butterfly effect

if a butterfly  flapping it wings in Brazil can make a tornado in Texas , who know about  the effect  that could make a good study made somewhere in this earth
