Think it's hard to make money in publishing in the digital age? Academic publishers are making bigger profits than ever, at the expense of universities, taxpayers and students, researchers say.

Peer review is often thought of as ancient and unchanging, but it is neither – and it shouldn’t be treated as a sacred cow, argues Aileen Fyfe

An approach to climate-change campaigning that hadn't occurred to me: a group of 866 Dutch citizens have successfully sued their government for failing to protect them against it. The court has ordered the Dutch government to reduce its emissions by 25% in five years. Of course, it isn't at all clear what will actually happen as a result of this ruling. The article suggests that it will provoke people to try similar lawsuits in other European countries. Apparently US law is such that this approach would be unlikely to work there.
Dutch ruling could trigger similar cases worldwide with citizens taking their governments to courts to make them act on climate promises

Nice!
 
+Ubuntu's document viewer app, Evince, will soon allow you to add highlight annotations, as well as to move text annotations. Might be available in Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf).

Uh-oh, I guess everyone will be naked next time I visit my home town...

Cool cycle ball. Never seen this. Wonder where it is played. I'm guessing it pre-dates bicycle polo?
Imgur: full of all the magic and wonders of the Internet.

I've seen that. Long time ago, around 1990 in Czechoslovakia.

Seems like a VA law prevents anyone from removing the confederate flag that flies at the Sutherlin Mansion in my hometown.
DANVILLE — Outside the mansion where the president of the Confederate States of America learned the South had lost the Civil War, the controversial flag of his lost cause still flies over a memorial to the men who fought and died for it.

A month after organizers put the brakes on Sacramento's Grape Escape due to concerns about breaking the law, it seems another local alcohol-centered event has been canceled for a similar reason.

Late last year the association released a poll showing 40 percent of [ #NewZealand ] scientists surveyed felt they were not able to speak out on issues within their areas of expertise because of management policy or concern over losing #funding . Its president, Nicola Gaston, said since the survey was made public she had been approached by several scientists who have felt pressured or #gagged .

Dr Gaston said the pressure on scientists was occurring in universities and Crown Research Institutes ( #CRIs ), as pressure went on to raise more funding from industry. She said a university scientist told her he was about to go on live television to talk about a contentious issue when the Vice Chancellor called, but he refused to take the call.

"And we've had numerous examples from CRI #scientists who have reported direct instructions from their manager not to include particular information in a scientific report or not to talk to somebody other than the client about the research that was done," she said.
More scientists are coming forward saying they are being gagged or pressured, their association says.
