I didbn't publish this paper. I submitted the story to Slashdot.
Your spell-checker ruined the fun or did you not notice that they have an editorial borad?
Than it should be fine for submission to the above mentioned "journal" as well as many others and Slashdot!
I'm not trying to tar and feather Indian technologists, I know that the who subject feeds into our US domestic politics and the whole H1-B quagmire. But have a look at the "editorial board" of this and other simular fraudulant "journals, and than remember a recent Slashdot story:
Over the last 25 years of my adult employment, I've worked with many gifted people from many countries including India, Eastern and Western Europe, and a fair number stereotypical North American bone heads. But things seemed to have changed in the last few years We lost all of our Blue Collar jobs the NAFTA (thanks, Bill Clinton), and we are now losing all of our white collar jobs. Soon we will all be Wal-Mart greeters or asking if you want fries with that. Of course, pumping gas went away except in a few states years ago.
And dig! They're afraid to post your full nick...
Which can be confusing since "Frosty Piss" is my actual name that I use when publishing all my papers, but "Frosty P" is the name I use when I'm scratching rare vinyl at the clubs - I know most dj's just queue it up in their MacBooks, but I'm old school.
Also note the "Editorial Board" for this illustrious publication: http://www.ijact.org/eb.htm
I suspect that this "journal" not only provides these guys with extra income, but also serves publication destination for their own dubious science papers.
Of course what keeps these "journals" in business is the fever pitch that academics must publish just to stay relevant in their professional / social strata (and who cares what they publish as long as they do), and their quest for tenure...
Mr. Beall's list has been criticized as being not neutral...
Not by Science Magazine... From Wikipedia:
In 2013, Science published the results of a "sting operation" in which a scientifically flawed spoof publication was submitted to open access publications. Many accepted the manuscript, and a disproportionate number of the accepting journals were on Beall's list. The publication, entitled Who's Afraid of Peer Review?, stated that "The results show that Beall is good at spotting publishers with poor quality control: For the publishers on his list that completed the review process, 82% accepted the paper." Beall agreed, saying that the author of the sting, John Bohannon, "basically found what I've been saying for years."
Of course I didn't use the word "F******" in my submission, but I suppose Slashdot must be couth.
Anyway, here's a link to the actual paper (warning: PDF) - http://www.scs.stanford.edu/~d...
Leading brick and mortar retailers in India have refused to sell Android One handsets ever since the US company chose to launch its products exclusively online.
If they are only available on-line, how would mortar retailers be selling them anyway, unless they were buying them on-line and marking the price up? What consumer would go for that?
Indeed. This is the kind of story I like to see here now and then, although I was surprised that the headline didn't start off with "10 year old genius builds super computer on a bread board..." as has been the trend here.
Please note that is the claim of the *prosecutor* and not the claim of the women actually involved.
Wrong. These charges were the result of specific complaints by both of the ladies involved.
Before VISA cards existed...
When was this? I'm 51 and when I was a tiny child, my folks had a Visa card...
small correction there: a polygraph doesn't detect anything.
Yes and no.
The polygraph measures and records several physiological indices such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity while the subject is asked and answers a series of questions. It is the interpretation of those physiological indices that are used to "detect".
it taught th brother a very, very valuable lesson he'll never forget.
To never admit to wrongdoing?
