Archive 2018: Expanding the State of Chayen Networks

Time flies when you’re having fun with Scopus, doing experiments, spreading news, or playing around. It all just depends on how you want to spend your life before the death comes.

We are now living in the era of multiple perspectives, right or wrong at the same times. Differences and disagreements occur between partners or people in close working, conflict with a boss we respect, a colleague we like, a close friend we confide in or a family member we love, or even with a politician we support. Again, it’s all about perspective. Depending on where we stand, the view of our living room and the things in it can look very different. Just like our perception of the physical world, perspective matters in our subjective experience of the social world.

Sometimes, two perspectives may be completely opposite, but each is completely valid in different ways, much like the views from opposite sides of a room. Thus, when partners are in conflict, it is constructive to do less political strategising and more perspective-taking, by which I mean to consider how things appear to the other party.

As I said before, just SHUT UP when we know nothing, the more we talk, the more mistakes we make.

What we need to do is to observe very carefully. Most of people provide the data from journals to support their statements. However, we may need to pay attention that majority of the journals only publish the articles with positive results and they do not publish the negative ones. Thus, we need to be able to conduct a scoping review to holistically understand the phenomenon before giving any statements, regardless whoever we are.

We cannot just easily believe in the news provided by any institutions. Until now, information provided in the Internet websites is subject to change and based on the good will of web designers, and most of us are unaware of them. As scholars we need to check the credibility of the sources, accuracy, scope, reliability and even the authors. Failed in this phase, you may create hoax.

I am starting my new temporary life in Gainesville Florida. Great new experiences with new people and new environment.

Overall, only 9 articles appeared in Scopus. Not good enough! hehe

Thank you 2018. It’s been a great year for expanding the networking of chayen.

My dear God, Allah… Thank you for such a good life, especially for the opportunity of being alive. May 2019 will be a great year as well for the best of mankind.
