SAGE investigation wises up to signs of rigged review - For movie stars, bad publicity—a fender-bender, rowdy behavior at a club, neighbor's complaints—is better than the real career-killer, which is no publicity at all. In scientific research, the opposite is true. No publicity over the veracity of research efforts in peer-reviewed journals is better than bad press. This week, however, news that a scholarly journal retracted 60 articles after discovering what it said w... http://ow.ly/2JZmVW

Roll-up TV is 18-incher, expect 60-inch plus by 2017 - Mention "new curved or flexible displays" and that is quite enough to get all the media dogs barking. Thursday's news went further. LG Display announced two new 18-inch OLED panels: the first is a transparent display, while the second can be rolled up into a tube. http://ow.ly/2JVzgM

Artificial spacetime experiment could show tantalizing effects of gravitational waves http://ow.ly/2JUcvt
(Phys.org) —Although the curves and ripples of spacetime are suspected to be full of intriguing secrets about the history of the universe, they are also extremely difficult to study. For this reason, some physicists are turning to the lab to attempt to recreate spacetime geometries where they can ...

Alcatel-Lucent sets broadband speed record using copper - Might a research heavyweight open a new door to gigabit speed with the use of copper? Alcatel-Lucent on Wednesday said it set a new world record broadband speed of 10Gbps for transmission of data using traditional copper telephone lines. The prime mover of this breakthrough was Bell Labs, the research arm of Alcatel-Lucent. What is more, the Labs' use of a prototype technology, according to the announcement, show... http://ow.ly/2JTqHV

Satellite data shows livestock emitted more methane than oil and gas industry in 2004 http://ow.ly/2JY6rc
Analysis of data received from a satellite in 2004 has shown that at least during that year, livestock in the U.S. emitted more methane into the atmosphere than did the oil and gas industry. In their article published in Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, a team of researchers from Harvard ...

NASA finds friction from tides could help distant earths survive, and thrive http://ow.ly/2JRzuC
As anybody who has started a campfire by rubbing sticks knows, friction generates heat. Now, computer modeling by NASA scientists shows that friction could be the key to survival for some distant Earth-sized planets traveling in dangerous orbits.
