Big Science in Crisis of Trust

first_img(Visited 37 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 A flurry of recent articles underscore the absolute necessity for integrity in science.America is having a crisis of faith in science, worries Science Magazine in its May 1, 2015 issue. Todd L. Pitensky of Stony Brook University offers six suggestions to restore confidence, including transparency, humility, righteous indignation at misconduct, and other character qualities.Numerous psychological experiments published in journals fail reproducibility tests, says Nature. Only 39% of results could be reproduced.The American Psychological Association is being hit with charges about collusion with the CIA on “torture” of Gitmo prisoners, says Science Magazine, which takes a left-leaning position on this controversial issue.A fierce debate is going on right now about the ethics of editing human embryos, reports Nature. NIH director Francis Collins reiterated America’s ban on the practice, Nature says—at least for now, as western societies fret over the ramifications of China’s frontier experiments on genetic manipulation of embryos.Science Magazine reports that a House panel is holding hearings about “politically driven science.” The AAAS, as expected, justifies all science and is finger-pointing at flaws in the investigation, but are they not an interested party as recipients of major funding?The bar graph, that very common way of displaying data, is being criticized as potentially misleading, reports Nature (see Statistics in the Baloney Detector). For continuous data, it gives a false impression of discrete values. But P-values (widely-used measures of statistical significance) have also come under fire lately. They are just the “tip of the iceberg,” Nature says, of “shoddy statistics” in scientific papers.Rachel Bernstein of Science Insider announces, “PLOS ONE ousts reviewer, editor after sexist peer-review storm.” How about double-blind peer review? Would that help? Nature says that actually poses a double risk.Electronic media have created another ethical quandary: transparency vs harassment. Michael Halpern and Michael Mann (yes, the NASA climate change guy) at Science Magazine worry over the issues involved, such as disclosure, privacy, reputations getting threatened, chilling of free speech, and other bad behavior.Japan is still struggling to recoup its reputation after the STAP stem cell debacle, Nature reports.But why worry? It’s all just evolution, a paper in Current Biology says. Even “social amoebas” (yes, the microbes) have cheaters and cooperators. Two authors claim that “slimy cheats pay a price,” but maybe cooperation is in the eye of the beholder. Like the moral equivalence some relativists claim, “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.”Look, why don’t scientists just adopt the Ten Commandments? (see Prager University course). Then all would be well. Nobody would knowingly give false witness. Nobody would curse. Nobody would covet someone else’s data. If they all took Jesus’s summation of the law (to love God and love thy neighbor), every scientist would be eager for truth to prevail, regardless of who gets the credit. It would be a scientific utopia.Instead, you have this crisis of trust. Scientists have God-given consciences which they deny, but they wring their hands over all these ethical questions, knowing deep inside that truth and integrity matter. On they one hand, they claim that social cooperation is an evolutionary artifact (therefore subjective), but then they go running to Judeo-Christian theological presuppositions for implicit moral support (i.e., we must punish research misconduct, we must stop plagiarism, we must do better than “shoddy statistics” and such).Let’s laugh at Nature and Science. Force them to use their own presuppositions. “You’re evolutionists, aren’t you?” (Well, but of course.) Then cheating is an evolutionary game. It’s not wrong. We’re just like social amoebas. In fact, if I get enough cheaters to join me, we’ll become the norm and you guys will be the cheaters.” (But that’s not right!) “Oh, so you believe in objective morality? Let’s see you evolve that without God!” (You must be one of those stupid, ignorant, lying creationist dodo heads.) “Is it wrong to be one of those?” (Yes!) “Is it evil?” (Yes, it’s not right!) “OK, so you believe in objective morality? Let’s see you evolve that without God.” (Aaargh!)last_img read more


Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — October 13, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 10-13-17Even though the past couple of days have made it feel like we never will get good drying back, sunshine will take more control of the state today and that will begin to drive temperatures up some. The dry weather continues tomorrow and will pair with stronger winds out of the southwest. This will increase our evaporation rates and lead to good dry down statewide. Temps will be back to above normal levels. Winds for Saturday should average 12-25 miles an hour with stronger gusts.The next chance of rain we see is still on track for Sunday. Some models are bringing the front about 6 hours sooner, others are holding it off till late afternoon. No matter when it arrives, Sunday will be wet, but the rains will be done by midnight at the latest. We are keeping rains totals at .25”-.75” over about 75% of the state, but will skew many areas to the lower end of the range. The main reason for that is that the front looks like it may want to move faster, allowing for shorter duration rains in most places. The map above shows thoughts of cumulative rains for the event through midnight Sunday night.We are happy to report no changes to our forecast for next week. We will be completely dry starting Monday morning and that pattern holds through the following Monday! We will have some cooler air in to start the week behind our Sunday front, but we should not see the lingering clouds and dampness that we saw this past week. Sunshine will help temps bounce quickly and the will see them climb to mostly above normal levels by late in the week, if not by midweek.Evaporation rates will be near maximum by midweek and will hold through the end of the period as well, thanks to strong high pressure.In the extended period, we have a front early on around the 24th that can bring up to .75” of rain to about 80% of the state, but it is followed up by another strong upper level high pressure dome. This will allow for some drying, but also cooler air to come in as we finish the month of October. We could see a second front around the 29th into the 30th that has half to 1.5” rain potential. However, the best rains from that front may stay farther west and north.last_img read more


Smosh: The Once & Future Kings Of YouTube

first_img9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… fruzsina eordogh 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Related Posts It’s All About The UnderwearPart of Padilla and Hecox’s long standing success on YouTube – besides making content for minors – is heavily related to how they pander to young teen girls, aka fangirls. (Higa and Shane Dawson also appeal to this demographic.) The YouTube community often reacts negatively to women and girls who flaunt their sex appeal, but seems to approve of men dancing around topless in their briefs.At last year’s unofficial YouTuber’s conference – VidCon – Padilla and Hecox’s booth featured them in their underwear. The crowd of girls they attracted was in serious danger of hyperventilating. Despite corporate YouTube’s best efforts, viewers under 18 still rule the video-sharing site, relying on it not just for entertainment and music, but for news as well.  Hence, Smosh’s dominance.  Smosh was acquired by new media network Alloy Digital in 2011.Photo courtesy of Wikipedia Commons. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#online video#television#video#YouTube Top YouTuber Ray William Johnson has been dethroned as the most popular YouTuber by Smosh, the manic comedy duo comprised of Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla.  It took 6.8 million subscribers grab the crown, which Smosh achieved over the weekend.Skewing Younger!The secret to Smosh’s success? Make content for viewers under 18. Like every YouTube act that has owned the coveted #1 spot, Smosh’s YouTube content is decidedly aimed at a younger teen and tween audience. Johnson, who riffs jokes on viral videos pre-Tosh.0 and also runs the popular animated channel Your Favorite Martian, has held the title of most-subscribed YouTuber since June 28, 2011.  Johnson’s content is less teen friendly than that of Smosh or Asian vlogger Ryan Higa (Higa held the top YouTube spot before Johnson) but his audience is still decidedly underage.  Reclaiming Their ThroneSmosh’s ascent to the top is actually a reclaiming of the throne –  the duo held the #1 spot back in 2006, before YouTube became the do-it-yourself micro-Hollywood it is today.“[C]ongrats to SMOSH for being #1 on youtube” tweeted longtime YouTuber Shane Dawson over the weekend. “[T]hey prove that being a youtuber doesn’t mean you have a short shelf life & thats very inspiring!”Besides their signature channel Smosh, which averages 4 million views per video (be it a skit or them joking while driving), the 25-year-old Hecox and Padilla operate seven other YouTube channels including the insanely fast-growing Smosh Games (focused on – you guess it – video games), the news and entertainment show SmoshPit Weekly, El Smosh, which is SmoshPit Weekly in Spanish, and Shut Up! Cartoons, which was partially funded by Google as part of its original content initiative. The duo even has their own bobble-head dolls – so you know they must be big time.Padilla began building Smosh’a new-media empire back in 2002 with the creation of Smosh.com, a Huffington Post-style aggregator of funny Internet stuff. The first video featuring the duo hit YouTube in 2005 and happened to be a lip dub of the Pokemon theme song Gotta Catch ‘Em All. It went viral, with 24 million views (which was huge in 2005) before it was removed for “copyright infringement.”last_img read more
