Camps et al. give the total yearly supply of a photovoltaic generator in kW/h and the number of nominal peak-sunshine hours per year for Barcelona as 1.6 instead of 1600 (figures 9–11). Nagasawa et al. seem to consider a change of 100 % to be synonymous to “no change”. And Paolo et al. call an absolute thickness given from an arbitrary zero-point a “thickness change” in their figure 3. This is like calling a temperature given in degrees Celsius a “temperature change” or Read the rest of this entry »
Price et al. and van Boeckel et al. paint a clear picture, that can result in only one thing: The youth of today will again see their grandchildren die of infectious disease, just as the lost siblings of their great-grandparents did. As evolution tends to make diseases less virulent in the long run of adaptation and as inoculation will probably continue to work, the new diseases can be expected to be much more vicious and horrible than the traditional ones.

So much for the ongoing and unfinished fight for female equality say Williams & Ceci. Interestingly it is just the one group most strongly stereotyped as male chauvinists, who have retained a sensible degree of objectivity.
Like most of the time the United States are about a decade ahead of Europe and as always our ruling elites lie to us and conceal the facts. I have therefore translated Daniel Greenfield’s insightful essay into German and placed it on my website.

Race riots usually begin with criminality and end with criminality. Read the rest of this entry »
In all the catastrophes of the last few years world wide Israel’s engagement was as big as that of countries ten times its size and wealth and it usually came more quickly and more effectively. But nowhere in the German or international press could I ever find one word about it, except in pages specializing on Israel. Shmuel Sackett regards it as a mistake, to make oneself everybody’s lackey. There are several older and more experienced acquaintances of mine, who refuse to give help and advice privately without remuneration, not from being stingy but because they’re fed up being disdained out of a feeling of “what doesn’t cost anything can’t be worth much”.

Compared to what was reasonably to be expected, the effect reported by Besbris et al. is tiny. Rather than stressing it, their title had better indicated, that the widely held expectation is as good as refuted. They completely fail to tell us what the error bars in their figure 2 are supposed to mean. Standard deviation, standard error, range, quartiles – we’re not supposed to know. Neither do they discuss Read the rest of this entry »

The first thing to notice is all the rags consistently calling the appalling drowning of 700 victims an accident . When a criminal gang of traffickers locks and barricades hundreds of people into a ship’s hold and then proceeds to sink the ship, Read the rest of this entry »
Kendler et al. is highly relevant for divorce cases, where the courts’ custodial sentencing all too often deliberately creates fatherless households. As everyone can see, motherly love tends to burn strongest in those countries, mostly Germany and the USA, where custody is coupled to significant monetary entitlement. Naturally the incentive is strongest for less well educated women with prosperous husbands, i.e. those where father deprivation hurts most. Considering the size of the effect, this may well have measurable consequences on the national level.
