European science funders ban grantees from publishing in paywalled journals

a couple of weeks ago

Thanks for taking the time to express those concerns! Ok, what about the problem of politicians and/or people in/with power using bogus papers in seemingly reliable OA journals to make major decisions or argue points? I don’t see how that will change as more and more people publish open access. These “fake” or irreputable journals […]

I never understand why people fuck with anyone ever. I’m not over the top nice to people in the service industry, I just say hi, remember my pleases and thank yous, and offer a friendly parting greeting. If they initiate chat, I’ll chat. If they make a mistake, I’ll be polite and friendly about it. […]

As somebody who lived in Surabaya previously, I can attest to how this may not be an inviting choice for many people. I commuted to work everyday by GoJek, as I did not have my own vehicle. GoJek is a service where you pay for someone to pick you up and you ride on the […]

The most blindly pro-Israel propogandists are GOP assholes who sabotaged Obama by inviting Netanyahu to Congress to interfere in American politics and insult Obama. GOP propogandists are pro-Russia because Russia helped Trump in 2016. They are blind pro-Israel ideologues. Israeli meddling in American politics is a serious issue and shouldn’t be dismissed just because Russia […]

When you don’t know if a door is push or pull : gaming

You can push it that direction in the original game. And depending on if you kissed her and some other choices throughout the game, if you choose to save the city instead of Chloe in the end, she gives a kiss that couldn’t be anything but romantic. And if you do decide to save her, […]
