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
Glad to see the community benefiting from a fork. Usually when canonical makes a new project the community loses because we get two of the same thing and neither work well (see GNOME3/Unity or Wayland/Mir). I fully support RedHat's approach to improve existing technologies rather than scraping existing project and creating crap.
I was disappointed to find out this was about computer viruses. Nothing in the description makes relevant to computers until the word malware.
The most unique biological viruses would be much cooler to look at than some stupid man-made computer virus.
We have a few expensive microscopes with WinXP on the corresponding machine, an expired service contract and in reality cannot upgrade without buying a new microscope (an newer drivers), so what do you do, other than put it behind a firewall and hope for the best.
Google Cache worked for me, link here
