WTF did you do Nature? How did this guy's old (and poorly-supported) research get through your review process? And why, after letting it through, are you publishing an online news article pointing out that it shouldn't have been published in such a high impact journal if at all?

Hey Google! I like the advanced search filters you put right at the top of Google Search results to filter by date and whatnot. Why can't I sort or filter search results for stuff in the Google Play Store in any way? Why can't I sort or filter Google+ Communities or Pages or Games in any way? Why have you tied my arms when it comes to finding the content I want in THOSE searches? To frustrate me? Because that's what it's doing. These would be extremely good products that could compete with similar, established services out there if you implemented some form of sorting and filtering so we can find the damned content we're looking for.

Edit: No multiple pages of results in G+ communities? I search "science" or "news" and get exactly one page of results each time. I search "citizen science" and count at least four communities for the same purpose. If there was any way to ACTUALLY search, it might not fail. I have little faith.

To paraphrase my old advisor: Science isn't a democracy. There's a correct and an incorrect. Science is about finding the correct answer, not the popular one.

When you hear news stories say, "a majority of scientists in the field agree..." what that really means is, "experts in the field have critically examined the giant pile of research on this topic and the overwhelming majority of evidence points to..."

It looks like an old machine shop building or somesuch, but it's pleasant inside and their stuff seems clean. The first room is skippable. Piles of bread machines, VCRs, old HiFi stereo equipment, point and shoot film cameras, and coffee makers. The 80s and 90s appears to have gone there to die. It's the stuff that even the Goodwill rejects or trashes because no one is buying it anymore. The prices seemed to reflect that though. The main room is full of worn couches and chairs. If you need a couch for college, this place should be at the top of your list. Once you get past that stuff you find serviceable furniture, interesting lamps, and mirrors. It's definitely worth a stop to look through the back few rooms. Dressers and tables ranged from salvageable to great. Prices are low enough that even the beat up pieces would be worth it just for the wood they're made out of. Lots of stuff had sold signs on it so I expect they have high turnover. My understanding is that the best donations go directly to those in need in the community and that proceeds from sales cover operating costs. It's the kind of get-up-and-do-something-about-it charity I like to see.

This place is tiny for a thrift shop but I still found something I wanted to buy. Prices are all over the place. The price tag was far too high on an outdated, incomplete dish set, probably because a worker recognized the expensive brand name. Several other items were priced extremely reasonably though. The worker behind the counter was pleasant.

I went in unprepared and came out well-informed. The three workers I interacted with were extremely helpful, professional, and informative.
