An interesting retrospective on the SSC in SciAm
A question for all those scientists:
How does the little fresh sachet that comes in the packet of soft shell tacos/burritos work?? Blows my mind that it actually keeps them fresh, but when you remove it they go as stale as Jay Leno's stand up act.

Study Linking Genetically Modified Corn to Rat Tumors Is Retracted: Scientific American
Hilarious to note that a co-author on this and a previous study published in a no-name journal with no IF linking pig stomach sizes to Monsanto feed is a Flinders Uni native. Absolute nut bar and both studies have obviously been heavily criticised.
Interesting that the person concerned links her name to the 'Institute of Health and Environmental Research' in the first study, a place which resides under the banner of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation which just happens to be government-funded (believe this occurs via the CSIRO). Wonder how much they know about her links to the anti-GMO wing-nuttery and associated poor quality sciencing? Hey CSIRO, when you're looking to cut back on research spots, look here first next time, ****s.
We all criticized it at the time. It was such a terrible study.
Would go so far as to not even call it a study. The way they went about it, it's no longer science but propaganda. Even with good intentions, science can't function that way so work like this, I'd hope, would never be accepted by any mildly credible journal.
I don't get how it passed any peer review process.

Apparently, you just plug it in for the immersion heater and attach a Zepplin. Boom, 1MW

Yeah, gotta love the section on the "Rossi Effect" on the cos website, eg
"The reaction going on inside the ECAT core is today not fully explained and only known in depth by the inventor Andrea Rossi himself,"
"The biggest challenge they face is to explain the three miracles of Cold Fusion reactions..."
"researchers" that scam the system publish a few articles in these journals citing there own work to get more citations and a higher h-index, then use these numbers on grants.
For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke
