Today I sent out new passwords to all members who have not logged in since our change to the new hosting system (Jamroom) in 2016. Many of the account holders cannot be reached because thier email addresses are no longer valid. This is expected.

I am hoping that the process is not too confusing for people, when they log in again with their new passwords. If you are reading this message and received the new password message, I would be glad to know if it was easy to follow, or not. Feedback is always useful.

Thanks

Trouble with your passwords?

Please tell Admin (email researchcooperative at gemail dot com)!

One user sent me this report:

" I followed the instructions to re-enter (log in) with the temporary password I was given in the email, and to update that password. I changed the password, but couldn't get in when the log in screen popped up."

 

Has this happened to others?

Activated the newly designed message to go with new password information, which is being sent out by our NingImport tool and the Mailgun email service that is integrated with our network.

Thank you for your thoughtful letter introducing me to the Research Cooperative. I see that you have experience in archeology; I have experience from a field school and a couple of digs for private companies. Thank you once again for your hospitality and look forward to sharing resources.

Dear Peter,

Your observations are correct insofar as state of science publishing in India is concerned.It has been a long time since I left active research in biology and now more inclined to popularization/communication of science in India.These days more interested in developing modules for science popularization for masses. Besides I am serving in state govt as Chief Executive in Fisheries department and have been given the task of imparting technological knowledge to fish farmers under lab to land programme. . I would definitely like to explore this website from time to time despite my busy schedules.

Dear Prof. Matthews, your proposal to take part in session 'Archaeology of Disasters' is very interesting for me especialy concerning contemporary events on border of Russia. I'm not archeologist. But I'think it is very important explore the arheology of common consciousness. How the media work with the consciousness? How to work with the media consciousness, causing a rift within the social groups and war. Comparative analysis of the structure of the media reports for the past six months shows that the Disasters was caused not by natural hurricanes, typhoons and vicious Social Engineering. Agenda: Arheology of disasters constructed in the system of knowledge and education
