  • Academic Publisher Wiley Retracts Over 11,300 Papers and Shuts 19 Journals As It Is Overwhelmed by Fraud

    Academic fraud is forcing Wiley, a major publisher of scientific journals, to close 19 journals after some were overwhelmed by industrial-scale research fraud. In the last two years, Wiley has retracted over 11,300 papers containing some fraudulent content.Academic publishing is a major industry for two reasons. The publishing industry generates about $30 billion in revenue, approximately 40% of which comes from within the United States. These publications don't make their money from advertisers. To have a research paper published in a top-tier journal will cost the research team several thousand dollars. That money typically is an authorized expense of the...

    A scientific journal was forced to retract a paper it published last month after it was discovered the authors used the artificial intelligence application ChatGPT to write it. The paper, published Aug. 9 in the journal Physica Scripta, was an attempt to uncover new solutions to a complicated math equation, but included the phrase “Regenerate response” on the third page — something one eagle-eyed reader recognized was the phrase of a button on ChatGPT, according to a report from Nature. The authors of the paper have since acknowledged they used ChatGPT to help write the manuscript, something that wasn’t caught...
  • Scientist tests his theory and cooks the books to support the left’s climate narrative… major magazine publishes his work

    American Thinker ^ | 09/10/2023 | Jack Hellner
    It has been clear for a long time that the science is not settled regarding humans and our use of natural resources in relation to temperatures and climatic changes. The only thing that is settled is job and financial security for “scientists” who support the left’s “climate change” narrative. They’re guaranteed taxpayer-funded grants; jobs from Democrats, colleges, or the media that uses their authority to regurgitate leftist talking points and to push for the radical leftist agenda to destroy companies that produce reasonably priced energy and other products. Here, a scientist admits that he essentially cooked the books to get...
  • 29 scientists wrote a paper defending merit in science. Science journals rejected it.

    NY Times columnist Pamela Paul writes today about disturbing evidence that science won’t be spared from the long march of identity politics through our institutions. A group of 29 scientists including two Nobel laureates collaborated on a paper titled “In Defense of Merit in Science,” but major science journals rejected it.A paper published last week, “In Defense of Merit in Science,” documents the disquieting ways in which research is increasingly informed by a politicized agenda, one that often characterizes science as fundamentally racist and in need of “decolonizing.” The authors argue that science should instead be independent, evidence-based and focused...
  • Natural Immunity Offered More Protection Against Omicron Than 3 Vaccine Doses, New England Journal of Medicine Study Finds

    Importantly, the Cornell University-funded study found that both natural immunity and vaccines offer “strong and durable protection” against Covid-related hospitalization and death. While it’s true that immunization wanes, new scientific research from The New England Journal of Medicine suggests natural immunity lasts longer than immunity acquired from vaccines. The study, a case–control analysis based on data from Qatar collected from December 23, 2021 through February 21, 2022, involved millions of people, including 1,306,862 who received at least two doses of the Pfizer vaccine (BNT162b2) and 893,671 people who received at least two doses of the Moderna vaccine (mRNA-1273), as well...

    Jessica Rose didn’t ask for any of this. She started to analyze data on adverse reactions after COVID-19 vaccines simply as an exercise to master a new piece of software. But she couldn’t ignore what she saw and decided to publish the results of her analysis. The next thing she knew, she was in a “bizzarro world,” she told The Epoch Times.A paper she co-authored based on her analysis was withdrawn by the academic journal Elsevier under circumstances that raised eyebrows among her colleagues. The journal declined to comment on the matter.Rose received her PhD in computational biology from the...

    Medical journals are increasingly and dangerously kowtowing to academia’s political zeitgeist. From manipulating public health data to using Orwellian language, the publication of “fashionable nonsense” has contributed to a credibility crisis. If the public comes to believe that it cannot trust medical journals on the easy stuff, then why would we expect people to trust them on anything?

    Well today I finally got around to reassessing my newspaper needs. My state paper, The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette as of next month goes total digital. So I now have to get used to reading the paper on the IPad. With that coming I decided to reevaluate the other papers I take. I get The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Well for awhile I just have not been reading the other papers much. USA Today used to be a fun paper to read and I had read it from the very beginning, but it changed it's format, got skinnier and become...

    Adam Lovinger, a former Defense Department analyst ... a whistleblower, is now battling to save his career. The Pentagon suspended his top-secret security clearance May 1, 2017, when he exposed through an internal review that Stefan Halper, who was then an emeritus Cambridge professor, had received roughly $1 million in tax-payer funded money to write Defense Department foreign policy reports, his attorney Sean Bigley said. Before Lovinger's clearance was suspended he had taken a detail to the National Security Council as senior director for strategy. He was only there for five months before he was recalled to the Pentagon, stripped...

    ATLANTA — Hours before a 17-year-old Alabama girl was killed in a bus crash, she wrote a final journal entry about her mission trip to Africa: "God has called me here and he's done so for a reason."Sarah Harmening of Huntsville jotted her thoughts about the trip to Botswana in a spiral-bound notebook, starting with her feelings of sadness and apprehension. She wrote that she turned to the Bible for comfort and by the end of the journal entry, it was clear she found trust in the Lord."We get to participate in his divine nature! How awesome is that?"...

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — At most fund-raising galas, the presence of a Supreme Court justice would be reason enough to crow. But some of the 500 supporters of the Claremont Institute who gathered here on Feb. 11 to see Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. accept a statesmanship award also had the group’s links to an even more powerful eminence on their minds.
  • What to Make of the New Study of Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law

    National Review ^ | 11/16/16 | Andrew Branca
    First, the paper conflates “homicide” and “murder,” and thus cannot result in valid findings with respect to “murder” in particular or with public safety in general. Second, the study contrasts Florida’s Stand Your Ground law with a set of four purportedly non–Stand Your Ground states. One of the four states in the control set, however, routinely applies Stand Your Ground doctrine in much the same manner as does Florida. This failure of methodology substantively invalidates the paper’s findings, and should have been identified in peer review long before publication in JAMA. (The widespread defects in the peer-review process of even,...

    Who cares about a state with five electoral votes? Well, you do. Clinton’s path to victory should be familiar to you at this point after months of polling. If she holds all of the traditional blue states, including and especially Pennsylvania, and tacks on New Hampshire, Virginia, and Colorado (all of which were won twice by Obama), then she’s got 271. She can lose Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina, Georgia, etc etc, and still eke through to a win — again, if she holds all of the traditional blue states. If just one flips, she’d be below 270 and...

    Contrary to claims from its editorial pages editor, a Wall Street Journal editor knew of Elizabeth O’Bagy’s connections to the Islamist Syrian Emergency Task Force and took at least three days to publish a clarification. “We were not aware of Elizabeth O’Bagy’s academic claims or credential when we published her Aug. 31 op-ed, and the op-ed made no reference to them,” editorial pages editor Paul Gigot told Politico in a statement on September 11. “We also were not aware of her affiliation with the Syrian Emergency Task Force, and we published a clarification when we learned of it,” Gigot wrote....

    The Journal News in New York took it upon itself to publish a list of legal gun owners and found itself in the cross hairs of outrage. So much so that the editors felt they had to hire armed guards for their own protection. Additionally, a list of the names and addresses of those working at the newspaper has been published and they don't like it one bit. The brain dead editor of the paper, Jane Hasson, expresses her displeasure with having to deal with the fallout of her exceptionally stupid decision: But the article, which left gun owners feeling...
