peneliti pria mendapatkan lebih banyak hibah dibandingkan wanita, benarkah?

sumber
http://amp.smh.com.au/national/health/male-researchers-given-8-prestigious-grants-women-get-none-20171206-h000ow.html




pada sebuah artikel yang dialngsir oleh the Sydne Morning Herald, disebutkan oleh Jayce Carrano bahwa peneliti pria mendapatkan 8 buah hibah bergengsi, sedangkan wanita tidak sama sekali. pada penelitian terbaru ditemukan bahwa peneliti wanita adalah "ghost writer"pada aplikasi hibah dan memasukkannya di bawah nama rekan pria, disebutkan bahwa pemberian dana tersebut berlaku tidak adil pada wanita.

Professor Deb Verhoeven, seorang social science researcher di University of Technology, Sydney menyebutkan bahwa praktek tersebut jamak dilakukanm dan hanya bertujuan untuk meningkatkan kemungkinan pendanaan. Analisis yang dilakukan pada program pendanaan dari National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) ditemukan bahwa 89% dana diberikan pada tim dengan pemimpin pria selama 15 tahun terakhir, dan pada tahun 2017 mencapai 100 %.

Hibah program yang sebesar $100 juta dari $877 juta merupakan gold standard dari pendanaan NHMRC. hal ini menyebabkan tim yang telah melakukan penelitian sebelumnya akan mendapatkan keuntungan, dan tim tersebut didominasi oleh pria.

Bias gender pada pendaan ini telah diketahui dan dicoba untuk memberikan pendaan ekstra untuk wanita. dan hasilnya NHMRC telah membiayai 34 project yang dipimpin wanita, dan meningkatkan total menjadi 186 tim, akan tetapi tetap lebih rendah dibanding 364 yang diberikan kepada pria.

faktor yang lain adalah senioritas, dimana pria lebih mendominasi posisi tersebut. ditambah dengan kondisi dimana wanita lebih sukar untuk melakukan perjalanan ke luar negri dan melakukan kolaborasi.

hal ini jelas tidak menguntungkan. inovasi biasanya terjadi pada tim dengan latar belakang yang bervariasi. skema sinergi yang akan diterapkan mulai tahun 2020 dimana menekankan adanya variasi dalam tim dalam hal gender, bidang studi, dan pengalaman.

bagaimana dengan di Indonesia?

Pengaruh variasi pemberian Snack bar ubi jalar kedelai hitam terhadap Kadar Superoksida Dismutase (SOD) darah


ABSTRACT
Background: Snack bar from sweet potatoes and black soybeans is low GI, fat and calorie snack which have antioxidant content, such as β-carotene, anthocyanin, isoflavone, and antioxidant activity, so can be an alternative snack for patients with DM type 2. Antioxidants intake can prevent the oxidative stress that lead micro- and macro-vascular complications in DM type 2. Antioxidant intake may preserve endogen antioxidant capacity, which is can be determined by analyzing SOD concentration. Objective : analyze effect variety of Snack bar from sweet potatoes and black soybeans consume to SOD concentration. Methods : experimental post-pretest research used 3 varieties of sweet potato’s color (red, yellow, and purple) interventions. SOD concentration was analyzed by colorimetric. Statistic data was analyzed by dependent t-test and One Way Anova. Results : No different between groups interventions Snack bar from purple, yellow or red sweet potatoes (p=0,122). Group with snack bar from purple sweet potatoes intervention has lowest SOD decreasing percentage among other intervention groups. Conclusion : Consume snack bar form purple sweet potatoes and black soybeans can preserve SOD concentration better than consume snack bar form yellow or red sweet potatoes and black soybeans
Keyword : Snack bar, sweet potato, black soybean, antioxidant, Superoxide Dismutase, SOD

ABSTRAK
Latar Belakang : Snack bar dari ubi jalar dan kedelai hitam mengandung Indeks Glikemik (IG) rendah dan makanan ringan yang mengandung antioksidan, seperti β-karoten, antosianin, isoflavon, dan aktivitas antioksidan. Snack bar tersebut dapat menjadi camilan alternatif untuk pasien dengan DM tipe 2. Asupan antioksidan dapat mencegah stres oksidatif yang menyebabkan komplikasi mikro dan makro-vaskular di DM tipe 2. Asupan antioksidan dapat meningkatkan kapasitas antioksidan endogen, yang dapat ditentukan dengan menganalisis konsentrasi Superoksida Dismutase (SOD). Tujuan : Menganalisis pengaruh konsumsi berbagai Snack bar dari ubi jalar dan kedelai hitam terhadap konsentrasi SOD. Metode : Penelitian eksperimental digunakan 3 jenis warna ubi jalar ini (merah, kuning, dan ungu) intervensi. Konsentrasi SOD dianalisis dengan kolorimetri. Data statistik dianalisis dengan bergantung t-test dan One Way Anova. Hasil : Tidak ada perbedaan antara kelompok yang diintervensi Snack bar dari ubi jalar ungu, kuning atau merah (p = 0.122). Kelompok dengan snack bar dari ubi jalar ungu intervensi mengalami persentase penurunan SOD terendah diantara kelompok intervensi lainnya. Simpulan : Mengkonsumsi makanan ringan berupa bar ungu ubi jalar dan kedelai hitam dapat meningkatkan konsentrasi SOD lebih baik daripada mengkonsumsi ubi jalar makanan ringan berupa bar kuning atau merah dan kedelai hitam
Keyword : Snack bar, ubi jalar, kedelai hitam, antioksidan, Superoxide Dismutase, SOD

tulisan hilang pada merge cell table pada MS Word 2016 setelah update

pada tanggal 13 September 2017 saya mendapatkan update KB4011039. pada saya melakukan editing tulisan, saya menemukan bahwa pada saat saya melakukan penggabungan cell pada sebuah tabel yang berisi tulisan, tulisan tersebut akan hilang, dan cell tersebut tidak dapat diakses. ternyata masalah ini berasal dari update KB4011039.


https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/c9c2c6ab-29f6-455a-bd23-10ee3d736992/officeword-2016-text-missed-from-tables-cell-after-kb4011039?forum=Office2016ITPro

solusi yang dapat dilakukan adalah melakukan uninstalasi update yang bersangkutan

kemudian masalah teratasi

mengubah format sitasi dari Mendeley ke Endnote

konsisten menggunakan suatu perangkat lunak dalam mengelola sitasi merupakan hal yang penting.  Library EndNote memang dapat diexport ke dalam library Mendeley begitu juga sebaliknya. Hanya saja apabila sudah digunakan di dalam sebuah dokumen sangat sukar untuk memasukkan sitasi di dalam dokumen yang dibuat dalam mendeley ke dalam format endnote. meskipun sukar tetapi ada caranya.
1. melakukan update library mendeley kosong dengan dokumen tadi, kemudian export library tersebut kedalam format endnote, lalu buka dengan endnote, dan secara manual ganti sitasi dengan endnote. kelemahan: double entry possibility pada endnote library
2. melakukan penggantian manual sitasi mendeley dengan endnote. lebih lama, tetapi lebih terkendali dan meminimalkan terjadinya double entry.

We are looking for

We are looking for two PhD candidates to study novel dual species fermented dairy foods and formulas with enhanced functionality. The project is focused on optimal co-cultivation of a lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria for the production of fermented dairy products and ingredients. The two species each have specific functions in the fermentation process. A systems biology approach will be applied to steer, control and optimize the co-cultivation of selected strains in a dairy-based product. The aims are to characterize and optimize microbial interactions at physiological and molecular level and to understand the signals that trigger the microbial activities which contribute to desired health related properties of the final fermented product/ingredient.

The project is funded in the framework of the national Topsector program Agri & Food and will be carried out in close collaboration with a food company.

We ask

We are looking for candidates holding an MSc. degree in (food) biotechnology, microbiology or food technology and showing a strong interest in microbial physiology, microbial ecology and food fermentation. In addition, candidates with affinity for genome scale modeling approaches and skilled in the use of state-of-the-art genomics and molecular biology techniques to monitor relevant microbial activities are preferred. The candidates should be fluent in written and spoken English, enjoy working on the boundary between fundamental and applied science, and be able to communicate with both academic and industrial partners.

We offer

We offer you a temporary position for a period of 1.5 years with extension of 2.5 years after successful evaluation. Gross salary per month € 2191,- in the first year rising up to €2801,-  per month in the fourth year.
We not only offer a competitive salary but also good (study) leave and a pension of the ABP Pension Fund.

Creating File Indexing Report for Data management

during making a proper data management plan, you should easily find file related to your research. one document needed is the index report of the files in the folder. a free software can be used to do this. https://www.jam-software.com/treesize_free/

With this software, you can make a report on the files that exist in the folders. since this method is manually done, you should do it periodically
