Bragging rights
About the only thing I think I can comfortably brag about is winning the 13th Annual Dead Baby Messenger Challenge Race. Not the downhill, the long race. I did it with a slow leak in my front tire, so every 2-3 miles I'd have to stop and pump more air into the front tire. Then I routed myself quite badly through unfamiliar parts of south Seattle. I had to be one of the last racers in (probably the actual last) but I got the manifest and all the stops right-so I won the race. A pretty sweet prize package worth about $600 bucks-yeah! Thanks Dead Baby for a slim victory I am going to brag the sh*t out of for the rest of my life!

Chevron suspends Romanian fracking operations, either totally pulling out, or to study fracking potential
Good news for anti-fracking protesters in Romania: Chevron has announced on Tuesday that drilling activities have been completed, and that they're now analyzing the rocks, and other data collected from the operations, to determine the potential for shale ga...

The United States is still a democratic republic, formally, but what that actually means in practice is increasingly in doubt — and the Hobby Lobby ruling, deeply disingenuous and sharply at odds with centuries of Anglo-American law, exemplifies how that formal reality is increasingly mocked in practice. It is a practice best described as neo-feudalism, taking power away from ordinary citizens, in all their pluralistic, idiosyncratic diversity, and handing it over to corporations and religious dictators in both the public and the private realm. The Supreme Court’s actions are not taking place in a vacuum — though they are filling one: As Tea Party Republicans in the House increasingly bring democratic self-government to a halt, contracting the power of we the people to act as a cohesive self-governing whole, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority shifts ever more everyday power into the hands of private dictatorships.

Spotty Sunrise over Brisbane
Image Credit & Copyright: Stephen Mudge
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140711.html

In this composite cityscape, dawn's first colors backdrop the lights along Brisbane's skyline at the southeastern corner of Queensland, Australia, planet Earth. Using a solar filter, additional exposures made every 3.5 minutes follow the winter sunrise on July 8 as planet-sized sunspots cross the visible solar disk. The sunspots mark solar active regions with convoluted magnetic fields. Even as the maximum in the solar activity cycle begins to fade, the active regions produce intense solar flares and eruptions launching coronal mass ejections (CMEs), enormous clouds of energetic particles, into our fair solar system.

Gov. Christie Tries Again to Pull New Jersey Out of Greenhouse Gas Initiative

“We believe that the Governor pulled out of RGGI because he cares more about his national political ambition than the environment and people of New Jersey,”

SAGE Publications busts "peer review and citation ring," 60 papers retracted
     From the Slate Daily Podcast, today's The Gist had a couple of really interesting stories. One of them was a delightful piece of fiction (at least it's fictional in our universe) by Dru Johnston, “I Think I Should Get More Credit for Killing Hitler,” which was the subject of this earlier post: plus.google.com/+GraemeMcRae/posts/TmRe7t7Rx33 .
     This post is about another story, this one completely true, unfortunately. It's about a ginormous retraction, reported by Retraction Watch: SAGE Publishers is retracting 60 articles from the Journal of Vibration and Control after a 14-month investigation revealed a “peer review and citation ring” involving professor Peter Chen in Taiwan, and perhaps others as well. It was discovered that Chen had created as many as 130 aliases using fake email addresses on the "SAGE Track" submission system. The investigation also revealed that on at least one occasion, the author reviewed his own paper under one of the aliases he had created.
