***BUY YOUR CONFERENCE TICKETS NOW LINK IN THE BIO*** We are presenting you with our eighth speaker of TEDxUTSC: 2020 VISION-Sauliha Alli! Sauliha Alli is an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto Scarborough, studying Neuroscience and Psychology. She is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholar and has gained exposure to the field of international development through a three-month internship in Ghana. She has organized the first educational seminar on reproductive health in the village (at Ghana) and started an international NGO that continues to serve this community. Outside of her volunteer work, Sauliha is also conducts research at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and has authored several peer-reviewed publications in the field of psychiatry. Her talk will discuss the question of why medicine and international development, despite having similar pursuits, are met with disproportionate levels of public criticism. #ted#tedxutsc#tedtalks#utsc#uoft#2020vision#global#health#internationaldevelopment#research#psychology#volunteer
A big applause goes to PhD students Haejin for getting her first publication on the Cornell Hospitality Quarterly. Co-authored with her major research professor, Dr. Hugo Tang.
Title: Experienced Buyers, Long-Term Fee Contracts, and the Value of Property Transactions in the Hotel Industry
Abstract: Hotel property sales have often been bundled with contracts, such as franchise agreements and management contracts. In these transactions, the seller/operator and the buyer/owner essentially entered into a long-term relationship. The present study accordingly proposed that such transactions could be viewed as a strategic alliance, rather than a one-time asset disposition. Specifically, it was hypothesized and confirmed that buyers’ experience in hotel investments could enhance the value of long-term fee contracts bundled with transactions. In addition to estimating the transaction premiums at the property level, the present study could contribute to the hospitality industry by demonstrating the value of specialist buyers in property sales bundled with contracts. For decision makers, the results suggested that buyer selection could be an important consideration in property sales bundled with contracts.

People used to think that the world’s climate changed on geological timescales over thousands and millions of years. Our research has established that climate changes on timescales that affect individual human lives.
Spring 2014 I presented at the University of Gothenburg my research work “The piano music in the ballet class - How can the pianist ‘talk’ to the dancers”. It’s an analysis about the role of the pianist and the music in the ballet class and the requirements for this. All completed with my own compositions 🎹🌟🎶🤩🖋

Rodeado de manglares, praderas de pastos marinos y arrecifes de coral, Galeta fue el primer laboratorio marino de STRI en el Caribe. El trabajo a largo plazo en este sitio incluye estudios de manglares, especies invasoras, termitas y avispas sociales. Más recientemente, el sitio se ha utilizado para monitorear y estudiar la llegada del pez león invasor al sur del Caribe.
Surrounded by mangrove forests, seagrass meadows and coral reefs, Galeta was our first Caribbean marine lab. Long-term work at the station includes studies of Caribbean mangroves, invasive species, termites and social wasps. More recently the site has been used to monitor and study the arrival of the invasive lionfish to the southern Caribbean.
Getting good at design is a long process. I personally feel that it never ends. Design changes constantly and that's the beauty of it. From flat design, to skeuomorphism of the previous years.
Despite this however, the underlining foundation will always fall back to the principles. Learning these will allow you to better understand design,but also give you avenues to explore each principle as design changes and evolves. This will both improve your work but also give you variety and the the capability to evolve your skills.

Despite SMBs making up the majority of businesses in different markets, incumbents struggle to appropriately serve them.
Because of these unmet needs, fintech entrants — including alt lenders, payment providers, lending platforms, and more — are increasingly threatening incumbents.
In response to the growing competition from alt lenders, we'll likely see more incumbents launch their own digital challenger products in 2020.

Touch is one of the first senses to develop and our skin is the largest organ we have. It makes sense that nurturing touch is so beneficial for our babies. Studies do demonstrate the connection between the brain and touch. Hormones are released that help with memory, learning, alertness. There are many other potential benefits. Happy Massaging!
Recently, I'm looking for the next lab (Searching labs are focused on USA.) for my post-doc. researches. However, I'm really worried because I don't know whether other principal investigators employ me as post-doctotal fellow. Besides, I am worried to decide new research topics after earning Ph.D. degree (please see the image.). If you meet with same situation, what will you choose between 2 situations? If you don't mind, please give me your valuable comments.
최근에, 미국대학을 중점을 두어 포닥연구원 자리를 알아보고 있습니다. 그러나, 저를 포닥연구원으로 고용해줄 PI가 있을지 없을지 몰라서 너무 걱정되네요ㅠㅠ 더구나나, 박사학위 취득 후에 연구실을 정하는 과정에서 새로운 연구주제를 정하는 것에 대해서 고민이 많네요(위의 이미지를 봐주세요.)..
만약에 저랑 같은 상황에 처해진다면, 어느쪽으로 정할 것 같나요? 시간되신다면, 이 문제에 대한 코멘트를 주신다면 정말 감사하겠습니다!
Surprisingly, you want me to continue posting about frogs, which we had many at @escapetosylvan. The best aspect was the six species of glass frogs we found there. @twanleenders, is the master of hearing their unique calls and pinpointing the most ideal areas for each unique species. It almost made it easy for us to find all six, almost. This is the Bare-hearted glass frog (Hyalinobatrachium colymbiphyllum), this species is known as the most see through glassfrog in Costa Rica. Like other species in the Genus the males rest under leaves, taking care of their eggs until they fall to the water below.

I'm excited to share that my research paper on Head and Spinal Injuries in Equestrian Sports with Dr. Cindy Lin has been published in Current Sports Medicine Reports! In this paper, we conclude that an improved understanding of preventable injury mechanisms, increased certified helmet use, improved helmet technologies, and educational outreach may help mitigate risk factors for injuries in equestrian sports. As a competitive equestrian, safety in our sport is something that I take very seriously, and I really appreciated this opportunity to combine my passions for medicine and equestrian sports. A huge thank you to sports medicine specialist Dr. Lin (a fellow equestrian!) for her mentorship and support on my first published paper! #research#sportsmedicine#equestriansafety

#ILookLikeAScientist ! The @stemthusiast recently brought over this hashtag from twitter (apparently people still tweet and I need to get on that 😂), and I thought it was SO important. A scientist looks however you want him/her/they/zie to!! This scientist personally either is in scrubs 😷, a bikini 👙, or hiking gear 🥾🤩! Some of the first questions I was asked through this account were how I got to where I was since I didn’t look like I would be in this field. What does that mean really? 🤔 Is someone not qualified because they don’t fit the stereotypical mold, or should someone pick a certain career based upon their appearances? It’s kind of silly when you think about it, but what’s not silly is that people still believe these preconceived notions that have absolutely no correlation 🙅🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️. I encourage all of you to help me try and slowly chip away at this ridiculous convention, one young scientist at a time 🙏🏻🧪⛏. If you have a passion and are willing to work for it, never take no for an answer. So what does a scientist look like in your opinion ? To me, a scientist looks like YOU! 👏🏻👩🏼🔬🧑🏽🔬👨🏻🔬👩🏾🔬🧑🏼🔬👨🏿🔬👩🏻🔬👈🏻 #thisiswhatascientistlookslike#alwayssmiling#drdevphd#missionunstoppabletv#ifshecanican

The last in the lineup of poison dart frogs, Granular poison frog (Oophaga granulifera), another species known from the Osa area. This was another of my most wanted to see species while visiting @escapetosylvan, after many years of seeing Oophaga pumilio, I had longed to see this other species in the genus. You can see they have a very fitting name, they have very granular looking skin on their back.
