Helsinki's ambitious plan to make car ownership pointless in 10 years

Finland's capital hopes a 'mobility on demand' system that integrates all forms of shared and public transport in a single payment network could essentially render private cars obsolete.

Interesting! I wonder if you can get sufficient electron flux from an STM tip to cause similar rearrangement.

I had a look at F1000 publication site, and basically they opened up the peer-review process to be visible to all readers. That is already a step forward. So many papers get rejected for the wrong reasons and so many crappy papers get accepted even when reviews give a negative advise. Then I think commenting on already published papers is good practice to weed out the bad stuff +Jani Kotakoski

A very interesting read for anyone interested in how much we can trust the effectiveness of drugs based on published trials.
 
+Ben Goldacre on transparency in clinical trials and Tamiflu.

The good news; we're making progress.

A paper of ours, accepted two weeks ago, to appear in Phys. Rev. B. We show here that more-or-less all of the previous theoretical treatments of defects in graphene have contained a flaw: they have assumed that the structure remains flat, while in actuality the defects cause the famous 2D material to buckle out of the plane.

(We also provide a set of vacancy defect structures observed in transmission electron microscopy experiments, but they are likely to be of interest to the experts only.)
