Ray: All of OSU wins if athletics is strong (Portland Tribune)

15-year-old ‘transparency’ effort seems to curb dubious biomedical findings (Scientific American)

The study found that in a sample of 55 large trials testing heart-disease treatments, 57% of those published before 2000 reported positive effects from the treatments. But that figure plunged to just 8% in studies that were conducted after 2000. Study author Veronica Irvin, a health scientist at Oregon State University in Corvallis, says this suggests that registering clinical studies is leading to more rigorous research. Writing on his NeuroLogica Blog, neurologist Steven Novella of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, called the study “encouraging” but also “a bit frightening” because it casts doubt on previous positive results.

It’s the first salamander fossil ever to be found encased in amber; it’s from a never-before-seen and now extinct species; and it confirms that salamanders once lived in the Caribbean, a place they are not found today. (see also CNET, FX Report Daily, Yahoo News)

There is a cocktail of problems.”
