Nope I see nothing like that on the full website. I got an "invite" through the reddit iOS app, with the chat icon in the centre middle of the bottom menu bar, with your message. I tried to reply, but it kept failing

CC /u/jleeky for issue report

edit: see it now

I got an invite from you i saw it on my iOS reddit app, but can't see how to use it on the actual site when using my laptop?

Post-Match Thread: Watford 0 - 6 Manchester City [Premier League] by robcoo in soccer

Yeah, you came out much stronger in the second half than the first. City were very good at stifling you, which meant there wasn't much being created by your players - especially in the middle of the park.

Will my first stipend payment be a little extra? (UK research council) by survivalsong in GradSchool

[–]squatly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was NERC funded during my PhD (was paid quarterly rather than monthly, which was amazing and terrible at the same time...).

You shouldn't get paid "extra", but from that wording it sounds like you will get paid at the end of sept for the period of mid sept to end of oct, meaning you will get a pro rata rate for the additional weeks on top of the standard monthly pay.

And as you're just starting out, trust me when I say don't worry at all about contacting people about any issues. No such thing as too small or big to email the relevant dept about. Think of the phd as a job, and your stipend your salary. Your university will have a finance department that deals with this stuff all the time. Drop an email and they will tell you exactly what's up. That's part of their job after all!

Carpet insurance.

People might ask about carpets, no ones going to continue a conversation about insurance.

1 month of heart rate data, with significant events highlighted [OC] by squatly in dataisbeautiful

[–]squatly[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

True. But its still relatively higher than other times it would've recorded me sprinting up steps etc.

Maybe I should normalise the data too...

Great suggestions, thanks!

And thank you! Glad it's finally submitted haha.

Oh yeah, absolutely! I plan on digging through it a little more. The troughs are all attributed to my sleep cycle, as I wear the watch constantly unless its charging.

I plan on seeing how my sleep cycle changes, how I react to stressful situations, how my heart rate changes with different exercise regimes, diets, etc. I can already see that my sleep was troubled, not as deep on the days before my interview and thesis submission, which might be related to higher stress. Need more samples though!

I also plan on having the heart rate monitor running constantly during my viva, which should provide a much higher resolution study for that day.

Any other suggestions would be most welcome!

Not a clue! I'm gonna chalk it down to an anomaly/misreading I think.

I didn't sanitise the data in any way, but was wondering about some of the high readings.

On the first day (26-27 Jun), I went on a couple of runs to test out the new watch, explaining those readings.

On the second day, I tested the waterproofness of the watch in the shower, which might explain the two higher readings there.

No idea about the 140 ppm reading. Pretty sure I didn't temporarily die...

The other high readings are probably from when I was cycling to and from shops for the most part.

10-11 July I can't account for. Maybe it was just an intense thesis writing day.

Data source: Apple watch series 2 (and me!) - readings generally taken approx. every 15 mins (gaps in data are likely when watch was charging)

Apps to measure heart rate: stock heart rate app & Cardiogram

App to download data: QS Access

Visualisation tools: Datagraph & Illustrator

Considering a Ph.D. in sedimentology - Career help (UK) by Strixx241 in geologycareers

[–]squatly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just so you know, another PhD student who started at the same time as me and is due to finish this August did a PhD in sedimentology, has 3 published papers in top journals, has worked in the o&g industry for two years prior to the PhD, and still can't find a job. The market absolutely sucks right now. Maybe it'll be better in 3-4 years, but who knows?

Do a PhD because you like the research topic, not as a means to get a job. It's a 3-4 year journey, so you need to be 100% sure you are committed to wanting to do it.
