I would like to discuss corruption and abuse within research and academia. I think many of us have suffered some kind of abuse or have been victims of corruption in research.
I would specifically like to share my experience with my master's thesis guide. She forced me to issue fee slips, where she told me to keep a fifth of the value and to deposit the rest of the money to her personal bank account. This money corresponded to the financial item destined to a research assistant, which in this case would be me. I found this practice very dubious, so I discussed this matter with her in person. When I discussed the matter with her, she got angry and told me that she had had to do that because there were some GPS that she had not been able to submit this expense for the project, because she had to buy them abroad. This seemed very strange to me, because after talking to colleagues who have worked on research projects in Chile, they told me that it is possible to submit expenses of this type of items. In spite of all this, I continued with my thesis, since I had already had two previous thesis themes that I could not continue to develop, for different reasons.
To my surprise, my guiding professor did not show up neither to my preliminary project defense, nor to my thesis defense. In addition, she told me that I should write my thesis in English (my native language is Spanish), since we had reached an agreement to publish my thesis in a scientific journal, and that if I did not write my thesis in English she would no longer be my thesis advisor. After I graduated from my master's degree, she told me that I had to do some extra analysis of my data in order to be able to publish my thesis. I told her that it was complicated for me, because I did not have a scholarship, and I had to start working to pay bills and other expenses. However, she threatened me that if I did not agree to do these new analyses, she would be obliged to publish my thesis by herself, and that we would have to "discuss later" the order of the co-authors of the manuscript, and it was likely that I would not be the main author. After this, I did not want to give away my work to her, so I did the extra analyses and worked as hard as possible to be able to publish the manuscript, working in parallel as an environmental consultant in order to finance my living expenses.
After publishing my thesis in a scientific journal, I reported my thesis advisor to the National Agency for Research and Development of Chile (ANID), because after talking to a friend that is a lawyer, he told me that what my thesis advisor was committing a crime: the illegal appropriation of public funds. Since the research project of which she was Principal Investigator was funded by the ANID (a Chilean government agency).
After this, I was contacted by a professor from the Universidad de Magallanes, which is the university where this professor who was my thesis advisor works. They did an online interview with me, and told me that they were conducting an investigation regarding my thesis advisor's complaint, and that if there was sufficient background, they would do a summary.
In January 2022, I wrote an email to find out if anything had happened regarding the investigation they have done on my thesis advisor, to which they replied that the process is not yet concluded. It has been 11 months since I was interviewed and more than a year since I made the complaint, and there is still no clear answer about the status of the investigation. This is really frustrating, as I had to go through both financial and emotional hardship due to this situation. It is unfortunate that these things happen in research and academia. However, I think it is very important that we begin to report these unethical and downright illegal practices, so that they do not happen again. I hope that my experience will help someone who is in the same situation and help them to make the decision to report this type of bad practices.

A colleague is interested in the problem of mega-fires. If there are scientific papers for the United States, Australia or France, there is little research for South America. In France, a mega fire can be identified from 1,000 ha, in the United States or Australia from 10,000 ha.
Are there any studies in South America (e.g. Chile)?
Are there objective criteria for defining a mega fire?
Many thanks!

Answer
Nicolas Maestripieri The answer to your question is here:
"definition of megafire as fires > 10,000 ha arising from single or multiple related ignition events. We introduce two additional terms – gigafire (> 100,000 ha) and terafire (> 1,000,000 ha) – for fires of an even larger scale than megafires."

Hello,
I am currently developing a SDM for an invasive plant (Ulex europaeus) in Chile. I have 60 occurence points from the GBIF database and additional 40 occurence points placed by myself based on google earth satellite images. I developed four models: three models with 60 occurence points and different bias sampling methods (random background, target group sampling and presence thinning) and one model with all 100 occurence points (and random background). My idea is that the google earth analysis offsets the sample bias. To proove that I need to compare my models. Therefore, I use the continous boyce index.
The question I have now: Is it possible to compare the evaluation metrics of two models built with partly different occurence localities?
Relevant answer
Answer
Thank you for your contribution. However, I wont include a model with the 40 presences because that would not help to answer my research question if adding occurence points based on satellite images can offset the sample bias.

Dear colleagues,
We would like to invite you to participate in a study that we are running together with the Federico Santa Maria Technical University (Valparaíso, Chile), the University of Concepción (Chile), the University of Valparaíso (Chile) and The Ohio State University (United States).
For this reason, I would like to ask for your help in answering this survey, which is aimed at:
- Professionals from any discipline.
- With at least one years’ experience in the professional field.
The project was initially considered for Chile, but now it will be extended to English speaking people worldwide.
The survey will take you no more than 15 minutes. This is its link:
It comprises two parts:
1) the first one asks about previous experience in design and co-creation activities, and
2) the second asks about the role of interprofessional work in specific situations involving the elderly.
Please, if you have never taken part in design activities, co-creation activities, or those related to the elderly, do answer the survey because this information is also very valuable for us.
I would also ask that you pass this survey on your colleagues, friends, and acquaintances because I am a little cut off in the academic world, and the idea is to cover the population in general.
If you can’t or don’t want to do so, I understand. For those who can, I truly thank you.

The distribution of daily PM2.5 concentration (hourly) is bimodal in the city of Coyhaique (South of Chile). Coyhaique is the city more polluted by particulate matter accord the WHO. The major source of emission is the burning wood used for cooking and heating, principally at the night. The health risk estimation using longitudinal models could be biassed using the arithmetic mean each 24hrs as an exposure variable. Exist another function for PM2.5 different from the arithmetic mean?.
Relevant answer
Answer
For ambient air quality data, log normal distributions are commonly used for some of the reasons you are concerned with. In many cases, in my opinion, the mode may be a more conservative measure risk and exposure analyses. Unfortunately I do not have references to peer reviewed work comparing the errors of one or the parameter used.

Dear all,
I would like to know your opinion about travelling by plane to go to conferences and actually the whole idea of having conferences where everybody in the world meet to learn what is going on.
I am very concerned as just some weeks ago I learnt that Greta Thurnberg decided to come to Chile BY SHIP to attend the COP25. After that I realized my already scheduled trip from Chile to an european country equaled 10 years of using my bike instead of driving my car.
In this context the question arises of should we scientist be promoting global meetings? How we can reduce our share? Should we make them more regional? How we engage more regions of the world that need to advance more in science and/or the ones that need more development and sustainable solutions but at the same time make the whole process more sustainable?
Personally, I feel I should not travel by plane any more, but it is a kind of selfish solution as I already had an important international experience. How we can provide that experience without large emissions or trying to avoid plane flights? I imagine that in some situations it is better that 1 person travels than 100, particularly if that 1 person can engage people to find solutions in the long term. Although in the same line I think I read James Hansen also decided not to travel at all by plane even though he would very likely be that 1 person.
I hope you take a minute to comment. I really think all scientific societies should take this question seriously.

svy linearized : tabulate stress_financ Depression_1, count column
the results i obtaind with this syntaxsis are expanded, but i was thinking is better to report weighted but not expanded (how i can do it in STATA?) .
Or should i simply report raw "n"? I think this last option could be the best because readers could estimated power analysis or consider the real validity of result. For example, in this data two men are houseworkers and they had depressive episode.

Relevant answer
Answer
The ITS region is generally a good marker for differentiating species. However, the intraspecific variation might not be enough and it is not phylogenetically conserved.
If you plan to do any phylogeny at family level as you mention, I wouldn't recommend it, at least not by itself. The D1-D2 or D1-D3 sections of the LSU have been used more and more in the last years for being more variable than the SSU, but unlike the ITS is more phylogenetically consistent. Otherwise, the EF or alpha-tubulin might do, but I have no experience with them so I can't tell you for sure.

Hello everyone, I'm looking for some sources to write my thesis. The topic will be the role of the Catholic Church in Chile in 1973 with respect to the ruling power and the military. I'm interested in understanding whether and how the local Church was involved in the preparation of the coup and how it reacted afterwards. Thank you very much for your attention!
