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?

I visited this Starbucks through the drive-thru. I was the only car. I guess i couldn't say they the barista was rude to me because the only thing that came out of his mouth during the visit was the total- no please, no smile. Nothing, not even when he handed me my drinks. It was very awkward and he came off as arrogant. I regretted stopping here. This is the second negative experience I've had at this specific location in as many visits. Im done coming here.

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.

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.

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.
