#Twitter is a powerful source of data for #PennState researchers. From better understanding how to dispatch relief groups to a disaster area to predicting how people might react to a political situation, tweets are windows into its members are thinking, feeling, and acting.
Guangqing Chi, associate professor of rural sociology and demography and director of the Computational and Spatial Analysis (CSA) Core in the Social Science Research Institute (SSRI), and his team have collected 25 terabytes of #geo-tagged tweets over the last three years.
“Our work has the potential to change the landscape of population research,” said Chi. “It could open the door for demographers to take advantage of rich Twitter data and strengthen research in many other social science disciplines that use demographic data.”

Twitter has become a useful social media tool for obtaining and sharing news as it happens, but the data it generates can also be a rich source of information for researchers in a number of different fields, say Penn State researchers.

#Temperatures have been in the mid-to-high 90s across the northeast since Thursday, plaguing the New York tri-state area, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C. and beyond. They follow a heat wave that struck the Midwest late last week, slamming Chicago with temperatures in the high 90s that felt more like 105 degrees.

And this comes just a month after triple-digit temperatures scorched the Southwest, breaking temperature records across Arizona and killing four hikers. At this rate, some experts are already saying there’s a 99 percent chance that 2016 will beat out 2015 as the hottest year on record.

Unless we slow down our fossil fuel consumption, we should get used to summers like these, #climate scientists say.

Unless we act fast to curb climate change, scorching heat will become commonplace, scientists say.

While Penn State has developed a reputation as a leader in #pollinator research, the experiences of Elina Lastro Niño and a fellow #entomology Ph.D. alumna, Holly Holt, illustrate another key contribution to pollinator health. Penn State is playing a critical role in training the next generation of scientists to address problems — such as parasitic mites, diseases and pesticide effects — that are likely to take longer to solve than the duration of a #research grant or even an entomologist's entire career. http://ow.ly/LR0v302lGzN

While "go big" is the motto for many science initiatives, Penn State #researchers are hoping a cutting-edge #microscope will allow them to "go deep" to promote biomedical research and discoveries in materials science. http://bit.ly/2a5OS3Y

“If it makes any sense to think in terms of red states or blue states, it makes even more sense to speak in terms of red companies and blue companies,” said Donald C. Hambrick, co-author of the forthcoming “Red, Blue, and Purple Firms: Organizational Political Ideology and Corporate Social Responsibility” in the Strategic Management Journal. “If I want to predict whether one of these gifts goes blue or goes red, knowing who your employer is allows me a much better prediction.”

Dr. Timothy Zeiger, a clinical #psychologist at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, is one of a select group of specialists nationwide certified to provide the therapy.

Tourette syndrome is a neurologically-based disease, but we know there are environmental factors that can exacerbate the symptoms,” he said. “A lot of these #children also have high levels of anxiety and stress, so we work on treating that.”

Not all children who develop tics receive an official diagnosis, and many outgrow it. When one demonstrates both motor and vocal tics for more than a year, they are diagnosed with Tourette syndrome. A new intervention is finding success in helping them control their condition.

If you like wasting your money on required courses such as gender studies and queer theory, then attend Penn State. It's no wonder that it was a haven for a person like Jerry Sandusky. When I attended back in the 80's, they were inculcating students with idiotic notions such as "Marriage is Rape". All of that crap is nonsense. The women want equality but they sure as hell won't fight in any of the wars.

Great place if you want to do research in gravity: I'm a graduate student in the gravity group and believe that it was a great choice to come here. Beside the excellent research, State College is a nice town (maybe a bit small) and has almost everything one can wish for - due to its size everything is also nearby. The Penn State Campus is really pretty and sometimes I just go to the Aboretum to think about my research.

Big university in a small town, plenty of opportunities and resources for everyone. If you take full advantage and get involved it will certainly be an unforgettable experience. The university gets smaller the more you join clubs and activities and make them your own.
