Friday links: Youyang Gu interview, #pruittdata retractions and EoCs keep rolling in, and more

Also this week: the Bayeux Tapestry vs. seminar speakers, Covid-19 vs. mothers, and more.

From Jeremy:

An interview with Youyang Gu, the data scientist who published what turned out to be some of the most accurate forecasts of Covid-19 dynamics in the US.

Ecology issues an Expression of Concern on Royaute & Pruitt 2015. Serious duplications in data collected by Jonathan Pruitt are under investigation. Details from first author Raphael Royaute here. That last link includes a link a GitHub site where all the duplications are documented. Pruitt’s former collaborators and trainees continue to go above and beyond to correct the scientific record.

And here’s advance notice of a forthcoming #pruittdata retraction. Via Twitter, Lena Grinsted announces that Grinsted et al. 2015 Proc B is going to be retracted. The paper had previously been subject to an EoC. Have I mentioned lately that Pruitt’s former collaborators and trainees continue to go above and beyond to correct the scientific record?

News article in Science on the impacts of the Covid-19 on researchers who are also mothers.

I can’t believe no one replied with MST3K: The Movie. And that only one person replied with Plan 9 From Outer Space. 🙂

What seminars were like in the Before Times 🙂 :
