    Studies show only 10% of published science articles are reproducible. What is happening?

    "Studies show a very low reproducibility for articles published in scientific journals, often as low as 10-30%. Here is a partial list:

    The biotech company Amgen had a team of about 100 scientists trying to reproduce the findings of 53 “landmark” articles in cancer research published by reputable labs in top journals.
    Only 6 of the 53 studies were reproduced (about 10%).

    Scientists at the pharmaceutical company, Bayer, examined 67 target-validation projects in oncology, women’s health, and cardiovascular medicine. Published results were reproduced in only 14 out of 67 projects (about 21%).
    The project, PsychFileDrawer, dedicated to replication of published articles in experimental psychology, shows a replication rate 3 out of 9 (33%) so far."

    It's hard to exactly replicate the conditions from one experiment to the next, so the findings aren't all that startling.

    They're not 'dumb blondes' after all: Women with the natural hair colour are MORE intelligent than brunettes and redheads

    The study showed that blonde-haired women had an average IQ of 103.2
    This was compared to 102.7 for brunettes and 101.2 for those with red hair
    I never bought into the stereotype. I've known 2 blondes who were very intelligent. I blame Hollywood perpetuating the myth.

    As white women between 25 and 55 die at spiking rates, a close look at one tragedy | The Washington Post

    White women between 25 and 55 have been dying at accelerating rates over the past decade, a spike in mortality not seen since the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s. According to recent studies of death certificates, the trend is worse for women in the center of the United States, worse still in rural areas, and worst of all for those in the lower middle class. Drug and alcohol overdose rates for working-age white women have quadrupled. Suicides are up by as much as 50 percent.

    Well yesterday this was.

    That it was apparently really popular in the victorian era for people to take pictures of and with recently deceased relatives. A lot of the time, the relatives were posed to look like they were still alive, using stands and props and all sorts of stuff.

    That was what the video that creeped me out a little mentioned- so of course that meant I had to go and read all about it.

    Was interesting though, and I could see why it might have seemed an acceptable thing.

    I watch horror movies mostly with Se. I have a friend who is likely INTx, and he called NoES 2 "the worst of the Freddy movies" although he's only a few years older so didn't have the same experience of the film generationally, but close. So we watched it, because I hadn't seen it in 15-20 years, though I'd seen it at least 3 times in middle school - I started pointing out all of the thought that clearly went into NoES 2, from the scenes with the parents seeming Stepford-like, too perfect, bright colors, almost disturbing in its parody of real life, like a commercial - how much scarier Freddy looks compared to some of the later films, and just all of the special effects - none of which were done with CGI, at that time, something he already knows. We mocked the age of the actors, and at the end he said "that is a much better horror film seeing it through your eyes"...and he had apparently forgotten several scary scenes or details. The furniture is absolutely perfect for the time period, I mean I actually had that bed, and aspect of making someone a killer is much darker and more adult than simply making them a victim. Someone worked really hard on that film.

    The music in 2 sucks, though. They obviously couldn't afford real 80s music, the most hysterical example being a song that's not really Whisper to a Scream, that says the words over and over again.

    Something I never picked up on, earlier in life , that he pointed out were the homosexual themes.
