OSU researcher under investigation corrects paper cited 500 times

Alison McCook at Retraction Watch - 13 hours ago
An EMBO journal has issued a well-cited correction for a 2012 review co-authored by a cancer researcher under investigation. Carlo Croce, the last author on the review, has been beleaguered by misconduct accusations that have followed him for years (recently described in a lengthy article in the New York Times), and his university has recently re-opened […] The post OSU researcher under investigation corrects paper cited 500 times appeared first on Retraction Watch.

For some reason Donald Trump believes that the testimony of James Comey vindicated him.

Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication...and WOW, Comey is a leaker! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2017 Okay well I watched all of that testimony yesterday and what I heard is that Trump tried to bully Comey into dropping his investigation against Michael Flynn, that Trump is a liar who cannot be trusted, and that Comey is convinced that he was fired in order to end the Russian investigations. And THAT by the way seems to be what most people heard as well. Subdued. pic.twitter.com/VoPReaxsnE — Andrew Katz (@katz) June 8, 2017 Besid... more »

Calling Doctor Freud

Karen Garcia at Sardonicky - 13 hours ago
My biggest "takeaway" (I do hate that word) from James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee is that Donald Trump equates being president with being the CEO of the biggest corporation in the world. Either that, or his demand for "loyalty" from the FBI director shows that he equates being president with being the godfather of the global mafia. And in a perverse sort of way, Trump would be absolutely right about both job descriptions. His problem is that he doesn't stay in his proper place. Presidents have heretofore acted as super-salesmen and propagandists for ... more »

Mosul Campaign Day 235 Jun 8 2017

Joel Wing at MUSINGS ON IRAQ - 13 hours ago
The major fighting in Mosul remained in the Zinjalineighborhood in the center of the city. The army, police and Golden Division are all involved. The Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) were originally overly optimistic claiming it could clear Zinjali, Shifa and Saha by June 1. The last one is the only one that has been liberated so far, and that was on June 2. The Iraqi forces are constantly claiming that victory is around the corner as part of its propaganda campaign. Others predicted that this final battle would be the toughest so far and that is proving true. The Associated Presshad a... more »

OK, so let me get this straight: The former Director of the FBI called the President a liar on national television, said he took detailed notes on his meetings with Trump because he thought he would lie about those meetings.

*Gary Anderson, Washington Times*:* Fighting season in Afghanistan* *What the Afghan army needs is an adequate air force* When an explosion rocked Kabul in late May, attention again was drawn to the state of the Afghan security forces. Spring ushers in the fighting season, and the Afghan National Army (ANA) has been losing ground; this is particularly true of the Pakistan border areas where the Pashtun tribal culture is strongest; it was the cradle of the Taliban and remains Taliban’s primary sanctuary. While the urban terror of the Kabul blast remains primarily a police responsib... more »

The great Kansas trickle down experiment has failed. Spectacularly.

Courtesy of WaPo: *The Kansas legislature finally put a stop to the predictably failed trickle-down tax-cut experiment it began in 2012. * *Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) had vetoed a bill that partially reset income-tax rates to where they were before the cuts and closed a huge loophole — importantly, one mimicked in President Trump’s tax plan. But on Tuesday, lawmakers overrode the governor’s veto.* *They didn’t have much of a choice.

America's Secret Plan to Invade Canada

Robert Farley at The National Interest - 17 hours ago
*Robert Farley* *Security, * The end of a war only rarely settles the central questions that started the conflict. Indeed, many wars do not “end” in the traditional sense; World War II, for example, stretched on for years in parts of Eastern Europe and the Asia-Pacific. Even as the guns fell silent along the Western Front in 1918, the United States and the United Kingdom began jockeying for position. Washington and London bitterly disagreed on the nature of the settlements in Europe and Asia, as well as the shape of the postwar naval balance. In late 1920 and early 1921, these t... more »

Why a War Between China and America Would Be Far Worse Than You Can Imagine

Robert Farley at The National Interest - 17 hours ago
*Robert Farley* *Security, Asia* P*otentially, victory could cement the US-led alliance system, making the containment of China considerably less expensive. Assuming that the war began with an assertive Chinese move in the East or South China Sea, the United States could plausibly paint China as the aggressor, and establish itself as the focal point for balancing behavior in the region. Chinese aggression might also spur regional allies (especially Japan) to increase their defense expenditures.* *A war could invigorate US government and society around the long-term project of co... more »

DUP and Sinn Féin celebrate election gains leaving the way open for a Conservative and DUP coalition government

Not a sheep at Not a sheep - 20 hours ago
Yesterday I posited a result which meant that Sinn Féin MPs would take their seats in order to give their old allies Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell power. In fact the result gives another Northern Irish political party a major chance of power. A party from the Unionist rather than the Nationalist tradition. The DUP won 10 seats and those added to the 318 of the Conservative and Unionist Party would mean a small majority for any such coalition. Can a deal be done? If the alternative is a Labour / SNP / Lib Dem / Green / Sinn Féin government then a deal bloody well has to be d... more »
