Submission + - NSF breaks new ground in reprimanding authors of flawed Science paper (sciencemag.org)

sciencehabit writes: Retractions of scientific papers are common. But not this one. The retraction by Science of a 12-year-old paper based on research funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) breaks new ground in what a federal agency can require scientists to do to set the record straight—and the role that journals play in weeding out flawed papers.

Submission + - Congressional panel told NASA has no plan for the Journey to Mars (blastingnews.com)

MarkWhittington writes: Testimony at a hearing before the House Science Committee’s Subcommittee on Space suggested that NASA’s Journey to Mars lacks a plan to achieve the first human landing on the Red Planet almost six years after President Obama announced the goal on April 15, 2010. Moreover, two of the three witnesses argued that a more realistic near term goal for the space agency would be a return to the moon. The moon is not only a scientifically interesting and potentially commercially profitable place to go but access to lunar water, which can be refined into rocket fuel, would make the Journey to Mars easier and cheaper.

White males don't need to hear about it on some crazy AM radio broadcast anymore to know the discrimination is there. It's happening in the open now, especially in government and at universities. Being a white heterosexual male makes you almost a second-class citizen in public service or education now, and increasingly in many liberal areas too (like Silicon Valley).

It's the SJW version of "equality." If a group discriminated against you in the past, then it's okay for you to discriminate against them now. Of course, that means it will eventually come back around and make it okay for white males to discriminate again against minorities and women, but we won't worry about that.

Submission + - Former Yahoo employee challenges the legality of Yahoo's ranking system. (nytimes.com)

whoever57 writes: A former employee of Yahoo is challenging Yahoo's performance review and termination process. The ranking system was introduced to by Ms. Mayer on the recommendation of management consultants McKinsey & Co.. Gregory Anderson, an editor who oversaw Yahoo’s autos, homes, shopping, small business and travel sites in Sunnyvale, Calif. is claiming that the ranking and termination process was flawed to the extent that the terminations were not based on performance and hence constitute mass layoffs, which require notice periods under both California and Federal law. He is also alleging gender discrimination, under which women were given preferential treatment over men in the hiring, promotions and layoff processes.

Submission + - Laid-off IT workers muzzled as H-1B debate heats up (computerworld.com)

walterbyrd writes: The utility employees left their jobs with a severance package that included this sentence: "Employee agrees that he/she shall make no statements to anyone, spoken or written, that would tend to disparage or discredit the Company or any of the Company's officers, directors, employees, or agents."

That clause has kept former Eversource employees from speaking out because of fears the utility will sue them if they say anything about their experience. The IT firms that Eversource uses, Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services, are major users of the H-1B visa.
