The realm of social media has been quite a boon to the land of information and communication. All events tend to have an official social media page on either Facebook or in Twitter.

When you’re a researcher, scientist, or even any sort of person that is thinking to partner up with an organization, it is important to see if they have certain qualities. These qualities are what we are going to be focusing on in today’s discussion.

There are a lot of perks to partnering up with an organization. They can provide you with funding, connections, access to certain documents and papers, invitations to expos and symposiums, and a lot of other things. These can sound pretty great and it is—provided that you’re partnered up with the right organization of course. To help you see if you’re approaching the right one (or have been approached by the right one), try to see if they have these particular qualities:

Training Opportunities

No good organization will want their pool of members to stagnate. Organizations that care a lot of about the talent that their members carry and the future of the group itself will want to provide training opportunities for them.

Good organizations often partner up with others to give their members a chance to meet other like-minded individuals and secure good chances for them to sharpen their craft and produce good results.

Can Adapt

One of the best ways to check if the organization that you’re looking at is okay is check out how old it is. If it’s only been a couple of years, there might be some perks like being one of the first few members. However, this isn’t exactly a best time to judge what they’re like or if they can adapt to changes.

Organizations that do not adapt to change do not survive for long. Try to check out the organization’s history. What sort of organizational change did they have to weather?

Visible Leadership

No one particularly likes being part of a group or organization that has no clear heading and no clear form of leadership. If the organization that you’re looking at doesn’t seem to have a clear system of order or of leadership, are you certain that’s one you want to be part of?

Visible leadership is important because you know that you will be guided accordingly and you will be able to rely on the people who are in positions of leadership. Always remember that a ship without a good captain will never find its intended location.

These are just a few qualities which good organizations should have and are known to have. These are certainly present in Tactic Project! We hope that you’ll be able to partner up with an organization which has such qualities. We’d love to know what you think. What other qualities should good organizations have?

weather station 880x425 - Of Science and Weather: Why Is Further Research Always Needed?

In the field of weather, everything is reliant upon research. The thing is, people tend to roll their eyes at the concept of FRIN (further research is needed). Today, we wanted to tackle this and clear a bit of the air. In the past few years, there have been significant changes in our weather.

Winters have been longer, summers have been a lot warmer, rainy season suddenly comes and goes, and most of all, the storms have been unnaturally stronger. A lot of experts tend to point towards global warming as the reason for all this abnormal weather that we have been having. However, there are still—to many—no definitive proof regarding this issue.

So in order to clear this up, there is one that that is truly needed: further research.

circle - Of Science and Weather: Why Is Further Research Always Needed?

In light of this, we wanted to talk about why further research is always needed for anything that pertains to meteorological events. Here are a few good reasons:

Proof

In the realms of both science and weather, proof is often important. This tends to come in the form of experiments and logs that are both written and in video form. In the world of today, the idea of “pictures or it didn’t happen” is quite strong.

If any scientist wants to make some sort of headway in proving their theories and conjectures, they will need to have proof for it. In order to obtain that proof, further research is quite important. Doing more readings, consulting with other experts or researchers, is always a good way to get closer toward the proof that you need.

Definitive Conclusion

All research and experiments are conducted to reach a desired ending: a definitive conclusion. As there are always a lot of critics and those that try to present an alternative theory to counteract what you’ve been trying to prove. This is something that is innately great and rather frustrating about the field of science and weather.

Everything is generally great until you’re trying to publish a study that goes against someone else’s. In order to present a pretty airtight argument and support your definitive conclusion, it is always good to go through considerable more research.

More research is always good when you’re trying to provide information that can potentially save lives. Think about Twister and the whole point that the meteorologists were trying to achieve. They wanted to find both proof and a definitive conclusion towards twisters and help save lives. People in the fields of science and weather can affect lives with the conclusion of their additional research.

We want to know what you think about it! Why do you think further research is often needed and is completely necessary?

shadow 880x425 - Of Humanity and Burdens: Why the EU Says It Can’t Keep Accepting Refugees

The topic of political refugees has always been highly divisive. Today, we wanted to dive in a bit deeper and discuss why the EU in general says that it cannot keep accepting refugees. For context, countries in Europe like Italy have accepted nearly 700,000 migrants and refugees who have been seeking a safer place to live.

If we base this solely on emotion, of course it would seem like accepting refugees and political migrants would be highly acceptable. If, however, we take a look at it from a different point of view—predominately, the EUs—it would also make sense why they say they can’t keep accepting them.

Here are a few key issues:

Security

National security is always one of the biggest concerns of countries which have opened their borders to accept refugees. There have been a lot of echoed concerns regarding the breech that occurs by members of radicalized terrorists groups which have been posing as refugees.

This isn’t just paranoia. This is something that has been a known occurrence all over the world. So it is only natural that the EU nations are highly concerned about the refugees that they accept. A lot of people tend to suggest background checks. However, as the refugees pour in by the thousands, there is no realistic measure to sufficiently process all of them in a swift amount of time.

Resources

Resources have always played a part in the primary concern of countries which accept refugees. All these nations have longstanding issues with their own citizens. They struggle with economical issues, weather related incidents, and somehow manage to come short in protecting their own.

Now, they have the added responsibility in providing ethical and humane housing or encampments for thousands of people. Nations now need to contend with providing food, medical care, and so many other things that they have trouble providing for their own citizens. Naturally, this will cause a divide.

There are a lot of other issues which affect the whole discussion of refuges in the EU. There are a lot of nations like France, Spain, and even England which are all trying to emphasize that they can no longer realistically keep accepting refugees. Only time will tell what the final result of this whole debacle shall be.
