Hi all,
I have a MEG data set which is about 5 minutes long for each subject. I want to detect and correct existing artifacts using the ICA approach using the Brainstorm toolbox. When I performed ICA, the first component (the dominant one) has a very small amplitude, (about 1000 times smaller in comparison to other components) and looks like a DC signal. Should I remove this component? It is the first component and I want to be sure about this decision as it may be a signal, not an artifact. In the following, you can see the components.Thanks!
Relevant answer
Answer
You should not eliminate unless you can identify a source for the component. See for example https://www.ee.columbia.edu/~dpwe/papers/HyvO99-icatut.pdf, Section 7.1, page 22 in which the authors discuss an MEG experiment in which the test subject was asked to blink and make horizontal saccades, then to bite teeth for as long as 20 seconds. In one version, a digital wristwatch was placed in the Faraday cage, and it produced an artifact.
Question: Is the signal of low amplitude very regular, even more that the ECG signal of this paper? If so that is strong evidence that it is an artifact.

I am on a state oral health department fellowship, and I am severely frustrated with picking an evaluation project. It has been months of literature research, brainstorming, planning, and talking with stakeholders. The topic I want to do is the Sugar Sweeten Beverage invention guide (similar to tobacco cessation 5A's) at the state level. However, I cannot formulate a question, target audience, and data to back up the evaluation. Has anyone done any state evaluation intervention method? Or any pointers? Thanks.
Relevant answer
Answer
Clare Mendioro it is important to identify the state of the program (e.g., early stages, well-established, etc.) so that you can propose the proper evaluation form (e.g., implementation study, outcomes-based, impact, etc.). Once those have been established, then you can frame your evaluation questions based on what others who have completed that evaluation form have asked. From the evaluation questions will emerge the necessary target audience and data you will need.

Among different tool of investigations such as Fish bone analysis, tree analysis, 5 why , brainstorming which one is more scientific and reliable for identifying root cause of different quality events occurred in pharmaceutical industry ?
Relevant answer
Answer
A full standard (IEC 62740) has been developed for root cause analysis. This document analyses many approaches for this purpose.
The Fault tree has been developed to identify, a priori, the causes leading to a potential top event. Then it is very effective for forecasting reliability analyses. However when the top event has actually occurred, this technique can be used, a posteriori, by retaining only the causes which have been actually observed (and discover the root causes of this ecent). This is the base of the "Cause tree Analysis" used in France to identify the root causes of accident/incidents. In collaboration with the actual observations it is based on a "deductive" (top-down) approach which is rather "scientific"

Hi, I wanted to start a brainstorming session to develop a greenhouse design using easy to acquire material and the following goals
  • Use a temperature moderating climate battery design
  • Goal for the design to stand alone and operate off grid
  • Complete hydroponic growth process, use of only inert strata for any root support
  • Internal plant scaffolding design to maximize use of space and increase crop yield
  • Organic pest control. Develop a self-sustained entomological environment within the greenhouse both for pollination and pest control
I hope many of you will find this project interesting, feel free to share any ideas of prototypes that you feel is useful to achieve these goals.
I will help moderate this discussion, anyone else with subject matter experience can also help moderate the discussion
I look forward to hearing from everyone on this topic. Thank You
Relevant answer
Answer
So, the goal is to collect the best available ideas and/or practical experience out there to develop a best practice design that I intend to then build and study.
I found an online tool at Climate Battery Calculator - eco systems design, inc. (ecosystems-design.com) that I used
For a 100 x 50 ft x 10 ft high greenhouse with a 5 ft tall roof structure it gives us a total vol of roughly 53000 cuft.
Now the next question for me is how often does this air need to be recycled and that may give us an idea of the diameter of the piping and the power of the fans needed.
Next I am curious to know how deep the piping should be and how many linear feet of underground piping will be needed to maintain a temp differential of up to 25 deg F between the inside and the outside of the greenhouse both at the high and low end.
Your point about the need to anticipate practical problems is very valid, I would love to hear from anyone who has experience building one of these.
This should help us make a rough estimate of the possible cost to build the structure int he substrata.
This is a windy post but hopefully we can build on this to get into the details of building the climate battery

Recently, my proposal "Enclave Dolarization: the case of the Triple Frontier of Paraná" was selected to participate in the project "Dollarizations in a global world: Socio-Anthropological Perspectives", promoted by the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO) -> https://www.linkedin.com/posts/juan-agullo_dollarization-clacso-latinamerica-activity-6899724464477859840-9_ur
My hypothesis is that there are some "Enclave Dollarizations" that coexist with the most obvious "National Dollarizations" (Panama, Ecuador or, de facto, in Venezuela). These dollarizations usually take place in "exception" territories (such as free trade zones, tourist areas or borders, among others).
I'm working on a Tri-Border Area and I'm confronted with the classic methodological issues: absence of data; different statistical criteria (depending on the countries); lack of officials who speak openly about the question (dollarization, i.e., is related to smuggling; tax evasion, etc...).
I'm receptive to any methodological suggestion related with approaches, strategies and tools.
Thank you very much

Answer
Of course, Juha Kamarainen. Let me be more specific:
1. Research Questions:
- In what way and at what times did the Tri-Border Economy Dollarize/Dualize?
- What impact have Border Peculiarities had on the Dollarization/Duality of the Local Economies?
- What impact has the Dollar had and has had on Cross-Border dynamics?
- What impact has the Dollar had and has had on the Tri-Border Area Social and Economic Duality?
- What local actors and what structural dynamics permits the reproduction of the Dollarization and probably of the monetary duality?
- How does the Dollar facilitate the Globalization of the local economy and what Geopolitical impact can this have?
2. Data:
my research is about how it happens and what functions could have an "enclave dollarization" and not necessarily about how many dollars circulate in the area. Nevertheless, some data are important. This is an usual problem in a Border Area: three different countries; three different practices and an ambiguous and sensitive issue for many officials

In his book Black Swan, Taleb (2010) believes that the human mind is subject to many blind spots, illusions and biases and that: “The right strategy for inventors and entrepreneurs is to rely less on detailed plans and to focus as much as possible on creative thinking and recognizing opportunities when they arise. Excessive attention to what we know results in yet another similar weakness: we tend to learn the details instead of adopting general laws.” Resistance to change has long been cited as one of the key reasons why companies do not adapt to change on time. One of the approaches is exercise "How to destroy a company". Employees and stakeholders can be divided into groups to find the most effective ways to destroy a company. Lisa Bodell, founder and CEO of the company “Futurethink”, uses simple techniques to help organizations embrace change and increase their ability to innovate, such as Google, Novartis, and HBO: “The first time the HBO team performed this exercise, it created three tactics that a top competitor could use to destroy HBO. The American mining company regularly conducts this exercise in order to protect itself from both competitive and market forces.” Modern management has always existed for “best practices”. In trainings, managers use role models to encourage and direct change. New researches suggest a method better than the previous one. Scientists from the Kellogg School of Management in the USA conducted a series of experiments, and in one such experiment managers were gathered in small teams to create unusual creative purposes for a cardboard box. Before the brainstorming, half of the group was given the task to share the unpleasant stories from the past six months, and the other half was given the task to share the stories they are proud of. According to the results of the experiment, the teams that shared unpleasant stories generated 26 percent more ideas than the groups that shared proud stories.

I am currently studying educational paradigms and I am interested in Constructivist.
Based on the study of the educational paradigms, I believe that this paradigm has profound enlightenment, guidance and practice not only for educational research but also for my own teaching design. Here are my three reasons:
The constructivist paradigm is derived from hermeneutics (Clegg & Slife, 2009), which attaches importance to understanding each person's life experience and the complex world composed of these experiences from each person's perspective. Its axiology holds that constructivism provides a balanced expression of value. The formation of such axiology and concept has far-reaching guiding significance to teaching design. Taking my Chinese teaching experience as an example, a successful teaching design should meet the cognitive needs of all students to the greatest extent possible. In class, teachers should not only interact with a few enthusiastic and bold students who are willing to share their ideas, but also take care of the differences between different students as much as possible and provide and create a fair, free and open learning situation for them. For example, at the beginning of a project, teachers who want to conduct research or better tap into student involvement and enthusiasm can use the Padlet or Mentimeter to collect ideas or brainstorm ideas. In the process of the project, the use of these interactive platforms can also help teachers understand students' understanding and grasp the situation, and such an open platform also weakens students' psychological concerns, so that the dialogue between students and teachers and students is more equal and calm.
The epistemology of constructivism paradigm is the interactive link between researchers and participants. In view of this, my understanding is as follows: Constructivism believes that students acquire knowledge not through unilateral teaching by teachers, but in a certain context, with the help of others, that is, through the process of meaning construction through interpersonal cooperation. My experience in Chinese teaching, for example, in under the guidance and influence of this paradigm, the main body of the language classroom dominated by teachers in traditional teaching and at the core of the classroom to explain a classical background, meaning and thought, change is the main body of the classroom for students, they are no longer by the object of knowledge, but in the teacher's assistance and guidance, To explore the situation is to look up materials and watch videos to understand the writing background and life story of the poet; to collaborate is to cooperate with a group or peer to complete a certain goal of poetry research; to develop conversation is to carry out classroom discussion and communication between teachers and students, and finally form their own cognitive process of this poem.
The research of constructivism paradigm is usually nonlinear. In the process of research, the purpose and research questions may change as we know more about the environment and participants. The core of education is people-oriented, so no matter education research, teaching reform or the implementation of teaching links can not be separated from the focus on learning objects. My experience in Chinese teaching, for example, in this paradigm, and under the influence of the guidance of the teacher and prepare for the design of a class is no longer confined to their own ideas, but based on students of the class learning, and in the process of classroom teaching and flexible to control the content of the inquiry learning (rather than the scripted lesson plan how to design is how to teach). In a real teaching environment, students are the subjects of the classroom, and their answers and feedback often bring teachers inspiration, surprise and challenge. At this time, if teachers can timely guide students and build scaffolding for them to explore, and help them to carry out personalized exploration activities, learners will get more lasting learning significance.
Currently I am beginning research on different methods and strategies on how to improve students’ reading skills in primary school. If I want to use the research methods of constructivism to carry out this research, do you have any good suggestions or relevant materials or articles to recommend? I look forward to your reply.

Answer
Wei Li Student-centered active learning is an excellent application of constructivism. Your research will include an instructional design and a research design. Both need to be based on your research questions. As I understand your intention, your instructional design will be based on constructivism, and then your research design will measure the outcomes of the instructional design (possibly quantitative, qualitative, or both).

My 6th-grade son is doing an independent science project for school. He chose to investigate inexpensive ways to view air currents.
In addition to the experimental work, part of his assignment is to interview up to three people who can provide him with knowledge, and help him brainstorm or improve upon ideas. We have already observed that air disturbances having large heat gradients are easily viewed as shadowgraphs. But we need better sensitivity for small gradients, possibly a Schlieren arrangement. In preparation, I have purchased some inexpensive materials that should prove useful: a small 100mm parabolic mirror with a 150mm focal length, a 12-inch diameter Fresnel magnifying lens with a 1-meter focal length, and a big 1x2 meter sheet of retroreflective fabric.

Relevant answer
Answer
There are a few controversial points how to set university ranking systems.
Many educators working in higher education know and agree that the student tuition amount is not directly proportional to the end quality of a program. It is also applicable for many high ranking top universities.
In this case, probably it is a good idea to start with a non-profit international accreditation system (association) represented by university professors/educators/policy makers from different countries. They should work on quality assessment and grading of university programs in specific domains.

Answer
Hello Mary,
In general, using publicly available data is exempt from requiring IRB oversight. However, some IRBs, as Daniel Wright 's response correctly notes, may wish to rule on whether a study is exempt from IRB oversight. Others may be content to let the researcher assume the risk if the project adheres to excepted categories that they (the local IRB) have published or adopted.
Once you get some ideas, it wouldn't hurt to contact your university IRB officer to confirm that your proposed research endeavors would, in fact, be exempt.
Good luck with your work.

Muthana Makki Mohammedali I was talking about myself when I was an inexperienced grad student 45 years ago. Skimming abstracts for ideas or potential problems to investigate is fishing and the ideas or problems that come to mind may be only loosely associated with the ideas or problems encountered in the abstracts. Students need to be able to look at an abstract and ask themselves "Yeah, but what about X?" where X may be a further development, a side issue, an undesirable implication, or a merely similar issue, to get started. I suppose a webinar that showed by example how this might be done could teach them how to fish, but I think a one-on-one approach with respect to a student's particular background and interests is likely to be more successful

Hi Guys!
I came across a master thesis which presents a scenario about the future of nursery in a particular sanitary region. In the methodological section the author states that he provided the experts gathered in the brainstorming exercise with the driving forces and the respective uncertainties so that they can pick the critical ones, in order to build the scenario. Is that a good procedure? Actually this is the first time I came across with this. I think brainstorming meant o provide the driving forces. Am I wright?
Relevant answer
Answer
The objective of brain storming is to check whether the initiators of the session have missed any blind spots. So if you give the driving forces up front it could have two outcomes - stereo type answers which the team already knew, or something new which the team had missed earlier.
This is where the moderator's expertise comes into play - to constantly track the progress and if the session is heading in a direction which we already knew, the Moderator needs to play the devil's advocate to divert the discussions into unknown terrains.
But personally I would not give the driving forces earlier. Let the participants come up with a list of driving forces and the scenarios for different combination of these forces. That way the ideas generated will be large in numbers.

I ran a series of workshops in which experts were divided into small groups and asked to discuss various points. After the discussion, they returned to the larger group and reported their views back. As they were summarising their points and as the general discussion was unfolding, my colleague (another researcher) took notes (we did not audio or video record these events). We have gathered a lot of very interesting data which has never been documented before and which came out of very rich brainstorming sessions among experts from many disciplines. However, these written notes are formed of (often) incomplete statements and bullet points which may have, of course, been filtered by my colleague taking the notes.
My 2 questions for you:
1. Is it acceptable to run a thematic analysis of these notes, although having summaries of ideas instead of complete statements does make it difficult for me to accurately contextualise them?
2. Might this analysis be publishable as a peer-reviewed article?
Many thanks indeed!

I don't see why you couldn't. You could take each statement/bullet point and have them sorted into categories/themes to see if they make sense. You can do this manually or use software.

Good morning José Pablo. The question you ask has a deep philosophical content, I discuss it with my students when I deal with the issue of mode of production, the first thing to do is change the living conditions of marginalized sectors because poverty is the cause and consequence of the ecological crisis where climate change is one of its most visible signs. If we do not change the current forms of production, the participation of all the members of the communities in that process and their forms of distribution can make many proposals, but the situation will continue, you will not be able to change the vulnerability of these groups. It is a cause-effect relationship of essence and phenomenon. You are a philosopher, we both know that until the causes of a phenomenon do not disappear, they will continue to maintain their forms of manifestation, until the forms of social exclusion in which these sectors live will continue to maintain the forms of vulnerability of these groups. I am not talking about social revolution, at all, I am talking about the change in the current conditions of existence of these communities, I am not talking about revolution, to make it easier I speak of evolution, although that is not the solution. I can also give ideas on how to solve this problem, but that would be patches and not the solution to the problem.

Hello,
I know this is a simple/mundane ELISA question but appreciate any feedback I could receive. I am a lab tech and have worked other places before, but about half a year ago I started at a diagnostics lab where we run ELISA's daily.
The ELISA is a sandwich ELISA, its not from a kit and we coat our own plates but its a pretty standard test (VWF antigen) and they have used the same tried and true protocols a long time. (Well tested antibodies concentrations, incubation periods, etc. Covers on the plates to reduce evaporation, water bath to reduce edge effect). The long term lab techs have no issues with running the ELISAs.
I, on the other hand, have been having issues.
About half the time my plates look lovely and the control values are fine, the other half the time my control values are too low. (They average the control lot values and they require all controls of that lot to fall within a range of 2 standard deviations from the average, so too low would be falling outside the 2 SD range).
There have been multiple times where I have done the same samples that others in the lab have run and my values always match but my control is low so I am fairly certain it is just an issue affecting the controls.
My CV's are always fine (excluding a random one here and there but they are rare). I plate the diluted samples, standard, and control I have prepared onto multiple plates at once and one plate will end up being low while the other (from the same set of sample dilutions) is absolutely fine so I don't believe it is an error in preparation/dilution of the control or the standard.
Additionally, the curves always look fine as far as I or the higher techs can recognize*, and there is not a high background level.
I have looked at troubleshooting from sites such as bio-rand and thermofisher and they address high controls but not much on low... except to say that the antibody calculation is off which I find hard to believe as, being a diagnostic lab, they use these calculations daily without issues.
I am not the only "new" tech to have had this issue but the higher up techs have walked me through the steps again recently to see if they could figure it out and stated they don't visually see anything I am doing wrong...but they also have stated they aren't very good at troubleshooting the ELISA. This means to me that, while I know how to pipet I cannot rule out if it is technique related (when they eyeball a meniscus are they a little high or do they wash differently or something?) or not (perhaps it is something that is just very sensitive but because I do the majority of the ELISA's I feel the brunt?) as I don't get much feedback.
It is getting very frustrating for me when one plate is fine and the next is not and I am unable to figure out where the difference may be.
If anyone has feedback or even brainstorming ideas as to what may cause my controls to be low it would be greatly appreciated
Thanks!

Hello, thank you for the response. I always prepare a fresh control for each plate but I cannot add a negative control. I would like to but we have set controls which we must use because we are a diagnostic lab.

Hello Everyone,
I am student and I have a final year project, I have chance to do it on the privacy on social network site (Social media) but right now I am in brainstorming phase. I couldn't come up with good idea that I can write a short proposal to my advisor.
I need your help guys to advice me some of ideas about privacy issues rated to the end users. Keep this in mind I can do my work as technical side or based on user study.
Waiting for your help thanks in advance

Answer
Another proposal for a research topic in this field:
How can the use of social media portals change people's social behavior, what new opportunities and what new risks it generates?
Social media can affect the personal lives of individual people. The sociological behavior of people is changing. Some people exchange traditional contacts with other people for contacts via social media portals. It changes the sociology of people's behavior, it affects sociological behavior, it generates new types of problems that also affect behavioral economics and the behavior of entire communities. In addition, there is the issue of the risk of losing personal data that may be stolen from social media portals. This risk also shapes the potential discomfort of using social media portals, if it turns out that some part of personal data has been mistakenly made public or stolen by cybercriminals. Unfortunately, despite the assurances of companies that run social media portals, information on these websites is not always fully secured and can be stolen by cybercriminals. In addition, the issue of downloading data from social media portals by large companies to Big Data database systems should be added in order to process them for marketing purposes. The issue of privacy in social media is very important and is related to the security of personal information. Privacy is at risk in terms of information posted on social media portals.

We are brainstorming about research involving the fields of genetics and oncology. We were wondering if chemotherapy could interfere with the results of the DNA isolation and Genetic results. Would it be possible to get blood samples during chemotherapy or is it best to do this between chemotherapy sessions?
Thanks in advance,
Roel

Answer
I think the answer depends on what you intent to measure and what the details are. Chemotherapy can induce somatic DNA alterations and potentially predispose to acquired aberrant clonal expansions (https://www.nature.com/articles/gim2017196). Are you plannig to get blood samples for germline DNA testing? Hematologic malignancy testing? Cell free DNA?

Morning all,
My first post on Research Gate! Hopefully it helps my endeavor :] and warning, it is long!
As the title said, I am brainstorming topics for my thesis. I am enrolled as MS, but will pursue PhD afterwards.
I am extremely interested in WECs. I have worked on a solar-based project before, and, until enrolling at OSU, had never heard of water based renewable energies! I'm so enthralled by them that I am taking a graduate CE course to better understand water wave mechanics.
The problem is, while I am an EE, I am not 500% interested in, for example:
- PE: for WECs, this might be designing a circuit with a super capacitor to help smooth the power output
- Control strategies through simulation: e.g. MPC in Simulink/WECsim
I have feared that maybe I chose wrong, and a ME/CE would suit me better, but all my advisors have told me that, "EEs wear multiple hats, we will surely find something for you"
Now to find what that something is!
I said "not 500%" because, I DO think those topics are interesting. I ask my friends hours on end what their PE circuit is, and to explain their method, and even go home and research to gain a fundamental understanding; I read a 50pg MPC document and covered each page top to bottom in notes you can't even tell where the original text is; I've attended WECSim courses to see how they are implementing control strategies
BUT it is not what I would want my thesis topic to be (I don't think, who knows maybe I start and I like it!)
I have talked to my advisor a lot, but am now reaching out to the power of the internet for various opinions...
So, does anyone have any ideas on what could be researched?
The only topic I found interesting when him and I were discussing were some WECs self adjusting to their environment.
Also, I know that most WECs are designed to work best at a certain frequency, but is there research out there regarding a WEC that could work at multiple frequencies, or change its' internal circuitry (control strategy) to better work at the average changing frequency of incoming waves?
Anything is really helpful. I am and will continue thoroughly researching and talking to many folks in the field to find something I am really passionate about, because in the end, that will make for a larger impact on the world.
Thanks,
- Chris

I am currently looking research ideas focusing on where I could go as a master’s student. It seems as there is a lot of recent towards reinforcement learning in Deep Learning to Learn, and algorithms which explore this such as SNAIL, MAML, etc. I’m currently brainstorming ideas that I could potentially explore in this area as further research or study, but something practical enough to tackle in the course of a year. Some ideas I had were studying various algorithms which explore robots learning to learn an environment that is constantly changing in real time (this could cover domain randomization, simulation training, etc.). Or perhaps there are deep learning to learn techniques that I can explore through Content Based Image annotation and clustering algorithms such as affinity propagation. Or perhaps there might be something I am not exploring and should when it comes to deep learning, image learning, environment learning, etc.

Answer
Dear Christopher Klecker
Perhaps the main thing to keep in mind is that "learning" is not all one thing; it differs with qualitative stages of cognition, unfolding sequentially and hierarchically during ontogeny (mostly, to say the least, during child development).
It continues to mystify me that people use the word "learning" as is a ubiquitous KIND OF THING. The only thing that is ubiquitous is associative learning (a more or less constant ASPECT of learning BUT ONLY AN ASPECT): And, THAT changes in its contents and dimensions as OTHER guiding aspects of species-typical learning are going on and changing. Lacking awareness of this is lacking awareness of even the nature of development and of learning itself. It is important to know that this is where psychology "is" (actually, not even a science yet). [ Psychology has several more ways of being empirical and being more empirical (related to clear, testable hypotheses and related to what I have just said), that they have not even tried. They seem to prefer nonsense concepts to (e.g. embodiment) to discovery and to good empiricism SO THAT THEY SEE ALL AS "learning" -- but, again, in a real sense they don't even know what learning is; so biased are they in the position that "all is learning" --> AS THEY "UNDERSTAND" IT <-- (this is a false assumption, aka presumption, which is NOT BIOLOGICALLY LIKELY nor likely to end the irrational totally ill-framed and useless dualist nature/nurture arguments. The science of Psychology has yet to begin. ] See my stuff:

Dear Applied Linguists,
This is an observation, much limited to my Pakistani context, that linguistics is comparatively a very new field. However, it is gaining momentum and ground in Pakistan through various university programs and a lot of research is being undertaken on various issues related to language(s).
But here comes the problem, the research that we produce is limited to only our linguistic departments, the discourse too is limited to conferences, symposiums, workshops, seminars and private discussions and classroom discussions. We do not connect with the public and masses who are the actual beneficiaries of this research. There is a gulf of distance between us and them. Have we identified the means through which we can reach them? Can we really do that? How to get to them? This question is for all practitioners and researchers to brainstorm ideas about this problem at the hand.
Relevant answer
Answer
The debate over translingualism and code meshing is one alternative to what you suggest. If you take the role of what one may call Pakistani-English not as a dialect of standard English but as a language in itself, then you can see the role that applied linguists are playing in terms of exploring the relationship between language and power or social context. In this way, language is connected to grammar and communication, but the problem is how do you incorporate that in the classroom. That's why in some journals, applied linguists are required to discuss the teaching implications of their research, even though their insights may or may not be of value to ELT.

Co-creation is based on a few basic principles. I want to test projectteams to what extent they have met a co-creational approach. In a new project you could organise workshops with this in mind. But the question is for (civil)projects in which the tea didn't explicitly worked in a co-creational way. Any idea how I could identify certain triggers that would tell me the projectteam did followed the principles till a certain extent?
Therefore i'm looking for indicators who can tell something about the level of maturity of applying a co-creational approach.
For example: A meeting is conducted with all stakeholders (inc. end users) in which a brainstorm was organized.
Or: A platform (offline or online) was provided in which stakholders could react on each other.
At best i'm hoping to find some indicators for each principle:

I am comparing a weeded (decades ago) and non-weeded part of the same forest, regarding the distribution of stems in different DBH categories. Although the expected long-term effect of weeding was that trees have increased growth rate, I found three times more trees above 50 DBH in the non-weeded compared to the weeded. Since it is the same forest, the species composition is very similar, so the difference is not due to some species that tend to grow bigger. Any suggestions would be great for further brainstorming! + The area is in a tropical island (Mauritius), where the main weed, which has been removed is Psidium cattleianum.
Relevant answer
Answer
En effet, avec un tel résultat, on peut se demander :
Pourquoi le désherbage à long terme n’a pas favorisé un taux de croissance accru ?
Pouquoi il y a trois fois plus d'arbres au-dessus de 50 DBH chez les non-désherbés ?
Loin de moi l’idée de défendre Psidium dans ces résultats qui me paraissent très intéressants.
Il y a peut être une explication dans la perte de biodiversité suite au désherbage.
Peu de biodiversité = peu d’échanges et d’aides entre les espèces (animales et végétales)
Le piétinement indispensable pour l’arrachage des exotiques = catastrophe pour la biodiversité du sol (très sensible en milieu tropical)
La pénétration des rayons du soleil = catastrophe pour l’humus du sol
La rupture forêt envahie/forêt débarassée des exotiques est trop rapide et le mycelium avec ses bactéries filamenteuses qui aident les grands arbres à se nourrir.
Pour moi, ces résultats montrent que la méthode d’arrachage des goyaviers sur de grandes parcelles est probablement à revoir
L’intervention en forêt tropicale doit être réduit à de minuscules parcelles (2mx2m) autour des plantes à préserver.
Il y a quelques études réalisées dans les Mascareignes sui le prouvent.

Do trees have an immune system? Is it crazy to consider immunizing trees against a fungal disease? I was brainstorming with a plant pathologist and we are trying to induce protection in trees.
If we had the genome and transcriptome of the fungal pathogen, could a vaccine be useful to "vaccinate" a tree of interest. We are talking about trees with high value, not forest plantation trees.
Relevant answer
Answer
Apparently, the concept of "vaccination" for trees has already been applied to, at least, dutch elm disease (see the link below). This is not "vaccination" stricto sensu, as pointed by Prerana, but recent findings about epigenetics and trained immunity in humans and CRISPR in bacteria indicate that pathogen recollection does not necessarily needs an adaptive immune system. So why not.

Hi,
I am developping an economic growth model following Robert Barro's Model in his "Economic Growth" textbook and orientated on his growth determinants.
The majority of them fits into my model pretty well, but I was wondering, what could otherwise influence GDP growth. At the moment, I have variables including consumption, government expenditure, political variables, investment, inflation, capital stock, population, and trade.
It's just a brainstorming question, that I do not forget "important" variables, that would reduce the OVB, improve the fit of the model, and change the interpretation of my variables.
Thank you so far!

Answer
@Brian: Well, the ideal model would be close to 1 for the R-squared. Or it would be theoretically, but normally regressions have a R-Squared closer to 0 than to 1. My model luckily has a higher R-Squared than the model I refer to in the beginning. 
@Mate: I will give an update to my project very soon, where I will further explain the aim of the project and its regression model. But the data is mainly from the World Bank because it's preferable to regress data from the World Bank on GDP data from the World Bank. Something that the model I was inspired did not do. And yes, the accounting identity is similar, but only in a way to be accountable for the fundamental drivers of growth.
Again, thank you for all of your comments and I will post an update on the project very soon.
