Impact of disease characteristics and knowledge on public risk perception of Zoonoses

Caroline Spence, Sarah Jenkins & Magda Osman
Zoonoses represent a global public health threat. Understanding lay perceptions of risk associated with these diseases can better inform proportionate policy interventions that mitigate their current and future impacts. While individual zoonoses (e.g. Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) have received scientific and public attention, we know little about how multiple zoonotic diseases vary relative to each other in lay risk perceptions. To this end, we examined public perceptions of eleven zoonoses across twelve qualitative attributes of risk...

Self-Censorship Between Self-Ridicule and Self-Reflection

Agnieszka Jakimiak
This essay investigates the notion of humour as a tool used to highlight the acts of self-censorship in theatre and performing arts and its subversive potential. By referring to the examples from the process of working on the Imaginary Europe performance directed by Oliver Frljić, the essay problematizes the acts of self-prevention committed by artists who decide to withdraw a certain figure of speech in order not to cause harm towards minorities or underprivileged groups....

Protecting wellbeing and resilience in BAME families and communities during a public health emergency

Iyiola Solanke, florence ayisi, Claudia Bernard, Gargi Bhattacharyya, Anna Gupta, Raminder Kaur, Monica Lakhanpaul, Sabu Padmadas, Shirin Rai & Maria Stokes
Ignoring race, gender and class when tackling a pandemic can undermine not only wellbeing across Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic families and communities (BAME FC) but also their levels of trust in government. A framework to protect wellbeing and resilience in BAME FC during public health emergencies was developed by Co-POWeR to ensure that laws and guidance adopted are culturally competent.

Climatic similarity and genomic background shape the extent of parallel adaptation in Timema stick insects

Samridhi Chaturvedi, Zachariah Gompert, Jefferey L. Feder, Owen G. Osborne, Moritz Muschick, Rudiger Riesch, Victor Soria-Carrasco & Patrik Nosil
Evolution can repeat itself, resulting in parallel adaptations in independent lineages occupying similar environments. Moreover, parallel evolution sometimes, but not always, uses the same genes. Two main hypotheses have been put forth to explain the probability and extent of parallel evolution. First, parallel evolution is more likely when shared ecologies result in similar patterns of natural selection in different taxa. Second, parallelism is more likely when genomes are similar, because of shared standing variation and...

GLOSSARY OF ASSESSMENT TERMS COLOUR CODED FOR BLOOMS

Lucy Gill-Simmen
The glossary comprises a series of assessment terms that students may encounter in assesment briefs. They are colour-coded according to where they sit within Bloom's Taxonomy. Academics can use these terms in their assessment briefs and rubrics and then refer students to the glossary for definitions.

Disentangling change across the time and true stability of employees’ resilience using latent state model

Lucie Ollis, Mark Cropley, David Plans & Hugo Cogo-Moreira
Abstract There is debate within the literature about whether resilience should be considered a stable character trait or a dynamic, changeable process (state). Two widely used measures to assess resilience are the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) and the Resilience Scale for Adults (RSA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the true stability (invariance) and change across time in resilience captured by these two measures. Using the perspective of Latent State-Trait theory, the aim...

Behavioural variation among workers promotes feed-forward loops in a simulated insect colony

Carrie Easter, Ellouise Leadbeater & Matthew Hasenjager
Coordinated responses in eusocial insect colonies arise from worker interaction networks that enable collective processing of ecologically relevant information. Previous studies have detected a structural motif in these networks known as the feed-forward loop, which functions to process information in other biological regulatory networks (e.g., transcriptional networks). However, the processes that generate feed-forward loops among workers and the consequences for information flow within the colony remain largely unexplored. We constructed an agent-based model to investigate...

Response of seed germination to smoke water solutions in Cerrado plant species collected between 2013 and 2020

H.L. Zirondi, R.M. Kolb, A.R. Martins, A. Fidelis, T. Steinbrecher, M. Pérez, G. Leubner-Metzger, J.O. Chandler, G.S.T. Motta & R.G. Martins
This dataset contains information about how seeds collected from Brazilian Cerrado plant species germinate in smoke water and control water solutions. Seeds were collected from site across the Cerrado between 2013 and 2020. Germination was assessed in laboratory experiments by placing seeds on wet filter paper with water and smoke water solutions. Two different methods were used. One used a commercially available smokewater, Regen 2000 and the other used smoke water produced from burning biomass...

EEG of facial emotion judgment task including tactile probes

Bettina Forster & IRENA ARSLANOVA
EEG data recordings of 35 participants who gave informed written consent before taking part in a facial emotion judgement task. The study was approved by City, University of London, Psychology Research Ethics Committee. Participants were seated in an electromagnetically shielded, sound attenuated, dimly lit room, viewing a 60 Hz computer monitor at a distance of 80 cm. EEG was recorded from 64 Ag/AgCL active electrodes of which 60 were mounted equidistantly on an elastic cap...

Does United Kingdom parliamentary attention follow social media posts?

John Bollenbacher, Niklas Loynes & John Bryden
Abstract News and social media play an important role in public political discourse. It is not clear what quantifiable relationships public discussions of politics have with official discourse within legislative bodies. In this study we present an analysis of how language used by Members of Parliament (MPs) in the United Kingdom (UK) changes after social media posts and online reactions to those posts. We consider three domains: news articles posted on Facebook in the UK,...
