  2. #overlyhonestmethods

    Has anyone been following the #overlyhonestmethods thing which has gone viral on Twitter the past few days? It's basically scientists from an array of disciplines making frank confessions about how they REALLY do science. I can relate to a fair share of them :greengrin

  6. "An Admission of a War Crime..."

    That's how the MSF have described the Afghan Government's justification of the bombing of their hospital in Kunduz, which killed 22 people. The United States military initially tried to justify the air strike, which they carried out at the request of Afghan forces, by saying that US soldiers...
