Fraudulent mining schemes are "alive and in good standing" according to an article, "Recent Arizona Mining Scams," by W. Scott Donaldson, in the May issue of Arizona Attorney magazine.   Donaldson notes scams dating back to the 1800s but focuses his analyses mostly on modern events.  He examines a number of case histories ranging from the Desert Gold Mining Co's salting of samples in

Too late for an April Fool, my eye was caught by this headline in the Guardian: Global warming may be far worse than thought, cloud analysis suggests  With the article itself containing the odd phrasing: Researchers said that a doubling of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere compared with pre-industrial times could result in a global temperature increase of up to 5.3C – far

Open data: Creating a culture of transparency and reproducibility in science 

AGU Meetings [2016-03-03 20:21:16]  recommend  recommend this post  (22 visits) info
An article published today in Science urges stakeholders in the field sciences—funders, researchers, publishers and data repositories—to promote open, reproducible science through the sharing of all data and materials. Allowing research results to be replicated and data to be reused fosters innovation, high-quality research and public confidence in science. There are considerable benefits for scientists who make their data open

Wow, a first for me. A book of mine (Cairns: Messengers in Stone) was referenced in an article in Nature. The article is titled “Chimpanzee accumulative stone throwing” and was written by a team of writers from around the world. They report on how chimps collect stones, bang and throw them against trees, and “toss … Continue reading Nature and

What is Alexandra Elbakyan’s motivation for creating and running Sci-Hub?

I’ve been a bit nonplussed recently to see some strange claims about Alexander Elbakyan, the creator of Sci-Hub. For example, this from Angela Cochrane in an article at the Scholarly Kitchen: She sincerely believes that she is above the law. I don’t think that’s the case at all. Nothing Elbakyan has said seems to communicate the kind of

Article They want some more info, but are still constrained by the original narrow scope.  I'm not saying anything, Justin, but if you want something interesting, then 'think out of the box'. What about the Precambrian geology?  Oklahoma ignores it at their peril.  We Canadians are supposed to be better than that. What are the constraints on pumping and grout?  Where are you going to put

Spotted by chance, and the article is mostly irrelevant but I did like the refreshingly honest quote from a fund manager who has woefully underperformed the FTSE over the past 5 years, no doubt drawing a massive salary in the process. There are those in the skeptic community who argue (based on who knows what, salary perhaps?) that scientists are basically the dregs left behind once

In 1865, Gregor Mendel, who first discovered the laws of genetics, read his first scientific paper to the Brünn Society for the study of Natural Sciences in Moravia (published 1866). He described his investigations with pea plants. Although he sent 40 reprints of his article to prominent biologists throughout Europe, including Darwin, only one was interested enough to reply. Most of

Article Wow, I wondered why nobody in Arkansas ever told the Oakies anything.  They couldn't!  They had duct tape on their mouths, because of secret settlements.  They probably got $10 each for that honour.

My last article on Toronto seismicity is not a be-all and end-all theory of earthquakes, but rather a series of hypotheses that can be easily tested for a few bucks.  The problem is that all the powers that control us are against it.  I'm talking Big Oil, Big Nuclear, Big Government and all that.  To be kind, they are not actively against it, they are ignoring it, like vw and diesels.

This article will introduce a magazine called “Geospatial World” (formerly known as GIS Development magazine). Since 1997 the magazine investigates geo-related topics and writes about present viewpoints of experts, worldnews, case studies, reviews, upcoming technologies and more.
