Those that argue that global climate-change (and of course, if man were not destroying the planet, the climate would be in stasis…) is a very, very serious matter – whose inattention places the globe in greater jeopardy than ISIS (probably the last thought that passed through the minds of those murdered by representatives of ISIS on London Bridge 06/03/2017) – may have a compelling argument (This...  Read More

Much of America for the last two-thirds of a century has been a Third-World country, grossly impoverished, brutally violent, unrelentingly vicious, especially in race wars which white supremacists have been conducting under the guises of this or that authority. Now, under the reigning puppet of the Re-thugl-i-gun-Russian junta, all of the cruel deceptive masks are being lifted, and we are seeing...  Read More

In science, size matters. As a rule-of-thumb, the power to detect true differences - in experimental treatments, between disease groups, in the control and drug arms of a clinical trial - is greater in larger studies. The larger the study the more likely we are to pick up differences larger than can be simply attributable to chance. This is more or less true. Of course, it isn't totally true. ...  Read More

Statistically speaking, at what point exactly do we see any "dwindling odds of coincidence" first kick in? I ask this telling question of the New York Times, who claim today: " Dwindling odds of coincidence " in the story of the investigation of Donald Trump's possible personal involvement in Russian interference with the most recent USA presidential election. How many claimed mere...  Read More

Despite research, there is currently not a shred of scientific evidence for any causal relationship between infant vaccinations and autism. Any notion that such a thing might exist originated in an article in the Lancet in 1998. That article, written by Andrew Wakefield and several colleagues, was later retracted for science fraud. Here .. Robert De Niro who has a son with autism once went on...  Read More

The Internet Journal of Criminology, of which I am co-founder and Chief Editor is an excellent place to publish your peer reviewed articles.

When something is removed from its historical context, it appears as an oddity, if it is even noticed, for some anachronisms are subtle. Most often any anachronism which one may encounter today has been made palpably obvious; its likely appearance is utilized in a movie; it may be done to obtain a laugh, or to present a mystery which is to revealed or unfolded through the vehicle of the film... ...  Read More

If you awake one day to find that the Oxford English Dictionary spelling of "unprecedented" has changed to "unpre s edented" will you be surprised? Would it be rather perverse?

When it comes to the problem of a supposedly independent replication of a prior published discovery, science cannot tell us how many coincidences sum to a number that would render the replicator's defence of multiple coincidence improbable. Moreover, how many routes for knowledge contamination sum to a number that makes it more likely than not that at least one was taken? HERE 'Nullius in...  Read More

The recent news story about imprisoned British offenders smoking marijuana whilst portraying themsleves on social media as living the "life of Riley" is another case of confirmatory evidence for the Rifkin Imperative , which is that successful offenders are often compelled to let others know they committed the otherwise 'perfect crime'.
