Along these lines, I see piracy to become a problem for these platforms. When every teenager in the neighborhood starts building their own computerized cars, they are just going to steal the platform (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay).

Who knows we may use the common cold to actually cure cancer.
I used to work at a small grocery store in the poor part of town. We had one woman who came in multiple times per day at bought 7 lottery tickets each time (lucky 7), sometimes she would buy 3 sets of 7. I estimate that she wasted at least $50 day on lottery tickets and obviously never won more than $500 pot when I was there.
She was the worst case, but I wish I could say she was alone. We had many, many patrons that burned so much money on lottery tickets and cigarettes. Since that experience I have never had the urge to buy a lottery ticket or smoke a cigarette.
I counted 445 authors on this publication. The author list is so long that they had to put it in the back pages.
When I was an undergrad, I remember the discovery of the top quark having a billion of authors. I counted and it had only 436 authors, http://dx.doi.org/10.1103%2FPh...
The top quark author list motivated me to get out of high energy physics and into biophysics. I am sure there are papers out there with even longer author lists, but I am always glad to see significant papers with shorter lists as well.
Do not become the next Sergey Aleynikov. He was acquitted, but not without a huge impact on his life.
Not that I want to defend Texas, but based on the wiki-table, you posted:
Texas produces the most renewable electricity (w/o Hydro) at 37,784 GW.h of any state in the USA (California close 2nd). I just happens to be a small percentage of its total electricity usage.
Yes, they can actually look at the plagiarized sections and fix them. The reaction tends to depend on how I contact them. If I am nice and say they can redo it for most the points, they admit their mistake and fix it. If you say they are getting a zero, then they start lying and say they do it in other classes and it is fine.
Self-delusion seems to be extreme or unlikely in this case. Based on this blog, she plagiarized her entire abstract only changing the cell name from ES to STAP.
A simple plagiarism detector would have detected this fraud. I run turnitin.com service on all my students' papers and I catch plagiarizer every semester. I think this should be routine for high profile article going in to Nature or Science.
Well maybe we should start funding more basic research or off the main path ideas.
While I thought the results were cool, I was annoyed by the bloggers use of the word 'chromatic aberration' instead of color noise.
Chromatic aberration means the lenses bend different colors of light differently resulting in color fringes around the edges of object. Color noise which is observed in low-light conditions here is not an aberration effect of the lens, but pixel counting noise on the CMOS detector.
In "Brief History of Time" Stephen Hawking states that "Someone told me that each equation I included in the book would halve the sales. I therefore resolved not to have any equations at all. In the end, however, I did put in one equation, Einstein's famous equation, E = mc^2. I hope that this will not scare off half of my potential readers."
It is even more interesting when you look at number of tickets sold rather than adjusted gross:
This seems to be the opposite story of the previous slashdot article from 2 week ago, The Air Force's Love For Fighter Pilots Is Too Big To Fail
