It's interesting how a company who you pay to publish your work ends up owning it.
 
The number of people boycotting Elsevier keeps going up!  Here's the graph for 2013.  See the sudden increase at the end?  That's because Elsevier forced the paper-sharing website Academia.edu to take down some papers. 

In retaliation, Academia.edu sent out emails like this:

Unfortunately, we had to remove your paper [...] due to a take-down notice from Elsevier.

Academia.edu is committed to enabling the transition to a world where there is open access to academic literature. Elsevier takes a different view, and is currently upping the ante in its opposition to academics sharing their own papers online.

Over the last year, more than 13,000 professors have signed a petition voicing displeasure at Elsevier’s business practices at www.thecostofknowledge.com. If you have any comments or thoughts, we would be glad to hear them.

Join in!  If you haven't signed the petition yet, now is a good time!

And here's a question: what made so many people sign the petition in May?

Lived there for a year and a half for school in New Paltz. Safe, clean apartments in a good location. The rent was a little pricey but I think it's a good balance between the amenities offered and the location. Management was friendly and they always got back to us within a reasonable amount of time and fixed things promptly. I had a very good experience here.

Management is nice. This motel is hella cheap, but don't think it's going to be like a motel 6... This is definitely a place you'd stay in if and only if you had no other choice. I mean, no-other-choice! The smell was unbearable and the entire place was pretty disgusting. And if that wasnt enough, im not sure what the neighbor was arrested for but he had 10 needless of heroin on him. So yeah, no other choice.

The best Thai food I've ever tasted. Add the great service and this is a must try for those who have never visited.

The show was hilarious. I didn't really care for the food though. The chicken in my salad was inedible and the combination rice was ok. I've never been to a dinner/show place and I found it awkward to eat while literally being on stage with the performers. (There is stage seating) Dessert was hella salty. 5 stars for the show but the entire experience gets 2.

Me and my boyfriend moved to the Hudson Valley in NY for school and left our car in California. We thought we could bus-it during our time here....we were wrong. So we did our research and discovered Golden Key Express. We got a pretty good quote so we set up a pick up. After 9 days, we have the car and are so pleased with how easy this all was. I will DEFINITELY be using Golden Key Express when it's time to go back home!
