#diary Citizen science #coronavirus (traduzione in italiano in fondo al post)

First I want to thank all my friends from Ila, Trondheim, the world to show love for me and Italy. I love you all as well. Then a small lesson from your favorite (I hope) prof.

Citizen science is about involving citizens in the process of producing and understanding science for the benefit of the society.

What we all can do is to try to understand the data that sources like the WHO make available to us and try to comment with our local knowledge.

For example this is the report that the World Health Organization (WHO) produced yesterday. You can try to organize the numbers that are more near to you. It can be a good way to talk about the crisis to your children without showing the pictures of the dead persons carried out of Bergamo in Italy. The WHO has also several videos that are useful to make us understand.

It is better to try to understand and to try to empower people to understand than to use power to force people to do something they do not understand. There is a lot I do not understand. Why is the percentage of dead people compared to the infected 10% in Italy and 0,3% in Norway? Is it because Italian are more closed to their old people? Is it because of the climate? Is it a matter of time, will it be the same in Norway in one month? Is the health system in Norway better? All these questions are yours my dear friends.

Per prima cosa voglio ringraziare tutti i miei amici di Ila, Trondheim, il mondo per mostrare amore per me e l’Italia. Vi voglio bene anche io. Quindi una piccola lezione dalla vostra professoressa preferita (spero).

La scienza dei cittadini riguarda il coinvolgimento dei cittadini nel processo di produzione e comprensione della scienza a beneficio della società.

Ciò che tutti possiamo fare è cercare di comprendere i dati che fonti come l’OMS ci mettono a disposizione e provare a commentare con le nostre conoscenze locali.

Ad esempio, questo è il rapporto che l’Organizzazione mondiale della sanità (OMS) ha prodotto ieri. Puoi provare a organizzare i numeri più vicini a te. Può essere un buon modo per parlare della crisi ai tuoi figli senza mostrare le foto dei morti portati via da Bergamo. L’OMS ha anche diversi video utili per farci capire.

È meglio cercare di capire e cercare di aiutare le persone a capire piuttosto che usare il potere per costringere le persone a fare qualcosa che non capiscono. Ci sono tante cose che non capisco. Perché la percentuale di morti rispetto ai contagiati in Italia e’ al 10% e 0,3% in Norvegia? È perché gli italiani sono più vicini ai loro anziani? È a causa del clima? È una questione di tempo, sarà lo stesso in Norvegia tra un mese? Il sistema sanitario in Norvegia è migliore? Lascio tutte queste domande per te.

lezioni di norvegese #VG #Norway #Norvegia #coronavirus #iostoacasa #jegblirhjemme

Traduco da questa pagina del giornale VG. Døde vuol dire morti. Nel paese per ora ci sono stati 7 morti, registrati oggi 0. Innlagte vuol dire ricoverati, ce ne sono 130 di cui 26 attaccati al respiratore. Gli infettati sono 1975 (smittet) di cui 2 nuovi oggi. Per ora sono state testate 43735 persone. Ci sono 190 ospedalieri positivi (sykehusans. smittet) e 9493 ospedalieri in quarantena. La corona norvegese e’ ai minimi storici, ma di questo ne parleremo poi. Buona giornata a tutti, state in casa. Io pulisco, scrivo, leggo, faccio ginnastica e chiamo al telefono. E traduco.

More about @jenteprosjektet @IDUN_phd_to_prof #gender #research #education

Here you have the pictures taken by Kai on Monday. Our wish of cooperation between ADA and IDUN is not only improved gender balance at all level from High School to Bachelor and Master, and from PhD to Professor but also, and may be most important, an increased mutual understanding between Norwegian students and foreign researchers for the benefit of education and research. As a department head, I have heard Norwegian students complaining about International assistants. As foreigner, I have heard foreigners complain about Norwegian. If we work together, we find out that we do not have anything to complain about.

#IDUN breakfast @anne_elster

Happy after the IDUN information breakfast (Slides). 1000 thanks to Anne for her inspirational speech. Anne is nominated as Digital Woman of the Year. I hope many of us will join the event and support her.

.ps one lesson learned in 30 years in academia, we should help each other more. As Anne said, if somebody becomes more clever than me, I am more happy.

how does it feel to get older @ntnu #trondheim

Getting older is a tabu, expecially for women, expecially for Italian women. You never see a woman with grey hair in Italian TV, unless it an old lady in a movie. I went for a lunch alone in the main cantine of the university and instead of thinking of the many work challenges, I was thinking that sometimes I went for a lunch alone 30 years ago when I was an exchange student, in the same cantine of the same university. At that time the cantine was quite dark, the students were almost all blond and white, they were playing cards and smoking sigarettes and had a light in their eyes while discussing lively.
Today most of the students were quite dark, a lot of Italian people, Chinese, other nationalities, some few blond ones. The cantine is painted light blue. It is a priviledge to get older. It is a proviledge to get older in a cantine full of students from all the world who have the same lively light in their eyes.

This is a podcast with Silvja Seres and me. There is a small mistake in the text as the name of Daniela Soares Cruzes is written instead of me. I take it as a compliment to be confused with young, smart Daniela. In any case, hope you enjoy it. I enjoy very much all the LØRN podcasts.

@patricia_lago I understood about software and sustainability when I was at your professor lecture, so thanks and all credit to you
