What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Is not worth a fly.

How To Speak Chemistrian

I have just figured out that it is an independent language, it should be the language I have to speak fluently. =))

    Is he serious?
    How could he talk so long about ..... ions?
    My head is now full of ... which ion? Or was it on-ion?
    :(

    I mean Chloride vs Chlorine vs Hydrochloride vs Hypochlorous vs Hypochlorite vs Perchlorate vs Chlorination vs Chlorate =))

    If you remember @april, it was my first session with LOE when you get confused about such inos

    When I clicked the play button, I though I'd hear you speaking fluent Chemistrian @science24‌. What a deception. :P

    Sorry @Xeb, I will try to speak it in one of our audio session =))

    I hope you don't speak chemistrian as fast as the guy in the video, @science24‌.
    He makes the chemistrian language sounds like tongue twisters.
  • science24science24 Posts: 977 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Not that fast @Xeb, the French chimistrian maybe.

    BTW, he is the same guy who talked about a Galápagos tortoise in the Galápagos islands :D

    I think post-modern jargon would be easier for me. =))

    'IN 1996 Alan Sokal, a physicist at New York University, submitted a paper to Social Text, a leading scholarly journal of postmodernist cultural studies. The journal’s peer reviewers, whose job it is to ensure that published research is up to snuff, gave it a resounding thumbs-up. But when the editors duly published the paper, Dr Sokal revealed that it had been liberally, and deliberately, “salted with nonsense”. The Sokal hoax, as it came to be known, demonstrated how easy it was for any old drivel to pass academic quality control in highbrow humanities journals, so long as it contained lots of fancy words and pandered to referees’ and editors’ ideological preconceptions. Hard scientists gloated. That could never happen in proper science, they sniffed. Or could it?

    Alas, as a report in this week’s Science shows, the answer is yes, it could. John Bohannon, a biologist at Harvard with a side gig as a science journalist, wrote his own Sokalesque paper describing how a chemical extracted from lichen apparently slowed the growth of cancer cells. He then submitted the study, under a made-up name from a fictitious academic institution, to 304 peer-reviewed journals around the world.

    Despite bursting with clangers in experimental design, analysis and interpretation of results, the study passed muster at 157 of them. Only 98 rejected it. (The remaining 49 had either not responded or had not reviewed the paper by the time Science went to press.) Just 36 came back with comments implying that they had cottoned on to the paper’s sundry deficiencies, though Dr Bohannon says that 16 of those eventually accepted it anyway.'
