Do you feel similar when you see people posing with a selfie stick, or is this completely acceptable behavior and I am getting it wrong?
From my perspective it doesn't seem to be mothers with kids who are using the stick currently. I see mostly women, yes, but young and single, using it in an attempt to position themselves as adventurous/exciting/well travelled/with celebrities/or wealthy.
Of course the habit of using the stick might carry over into their families once they have children but that remains to be seen.
Also these days I see much more men than women carry (and use) cameras. That might help with the family pictures as well.
"This study shows that drinking sauerkraut juice contributes to a stronger support of Nazi-esque right wing ideology than drinking either nothing or a less-healthy beverage (Nestea)."
Not sure if I want to laugh or cry about this study.
There is neither a need to turn an act of terrorism into a reason to damn one religion nor to instill a righteous believe into another. Keep religion out of it.
And How We Can Stop
While this excellent piece on how biases and motives digs into how scientists fool themselves, this also applies to all of us.
Abstract We attempt to replicate 67 papers published in 13 well-regarded economics journals using author-provided replication files that include both data and code. Some journals in our sample require data and code replication files, and other journals do not require such files. Aside from 6 papers that use confidential data, we obtain data and code replication files for 29 of 35 papers (83%) that are required to provide such files as a condition of publication, compared to 11 of 26 papers (42%) that are not required to provide data and code replication files. We successfully replicate the key qualitative result of 22 of 67 papers (33%) without contacting the authors. Excluding the 6 papers that use confidential data and the 2 papers that use software we do not possess, we replicate 29 of 59 papers (49%) with assistance from the authors. Because we are able to replicate less than half of the papers in our sample even with help from the authors, we assert that economics research is usually not replicable. We conclude with recommendations on improving replication of economics research.
