Chinese Censors and Web Users Match Wits, NY Times
Excerpts: "Some messages on the Internet are sent by those with ulterior motives," (...).
Stern instructions like those are in keeping with a trend aimed at assigning greater responsibility to Internet providers to assist the government and its army of as many as 50,000 Internet police, who enforce limits on what can be seen and said.
"If you say something the Web administrator doesn't like, they'll simply block your account," (...), "and if you keep at it, you'll gradually face more and more difficulties and may land in real trouble."
Toward Alternative Metrics of Journal Impact: A Comparison of Download and Citation Data, arXiv
Abstract: We generated networks of journal relationships from citation and download data, and determined journal impact rankings from these networks using a set of social network centrality metrics. The resulting journal impact rankings were compared to the ISI IF. Results indicate that, although social network metrics and ISI IF rankings deviate moderately for citation-based journal networks, they differ considerably for journal networks derived from download data. We believe the results represent a unique aspect of general journal impact that is not captured by the ISI IF. These results furthermore raise questions regarding the validity of the ISI IF as the sole assessment of journal impact, and suggest the possibility of devising impact metrics based on usage information in general.
The Game Academics Play: Editors Versus Authors, Bull. Econ. Res.
Abstract: This article studies a game between authors and editors. Editors play as leaders while authors are the followers. Authors maximize the number of publications seeking to increase the impact of their work in the literature, captured by citations. Editors maximize the quality of papers they publish in order to increase the reputation of their journals. The main results are: (i) rules aimed at increasing scholars productivity, such as requirements to obtain tenure, increase author's citations and journal's quality; (ii) editors willingness to build journal's reputation hurt journal's quality and increase author's publications; (iii) journal's reputation increases citations and journal's quality.

Using The Internet In Teaching: The Views Of Practitioners, British J. Edu. Tech.
Excerpt: A questionnaire was generated from the results of a series of interviews at The City School one of the 27 state secondary schools in Sheffield. In October 2002, it was sent out to 499 Heads of Department at the remaining 26 state secondary schools. Responses were received from 188 teachers, ranging in age from 24 to 60 years old. The purpose of the questionnaire was to gain information about teachers' views of the Internet and its usefulness as an educational tool. (...) There was strong support, however, for the suggestion that the Internet is a valuable source of learning and teaching materials.
Telemedicine Revolution Is 'Disappearing' From The NHS, ESRC Press Release
Excerpts: Despite high expectations, telemedicine and telehealthcare systems, which enable doctors to interact with patients many miles away via video, digital imaging and electronic data transmission, have had only limited impact on the National Health Service, according to a study sponsored by the ESRC. (...) "Telemedicine" is disappearing, in stark contrast to the apparent success of telephone services on which clinical staff decide the urgency of patients' injuries or illnesses, and advice lines such as NHS Direct. Resistance from professionals is often blamed, but the real reason is often a failure to think through the organisational problems involved in integrating new technology (...).
What in the Name of Euclid Is Going On Here?, Science
Excerpts: In the past few months, software packages called "proof assistants," which go through every step of a carefully written argument and check that it follows from the axioms of mathematics, have served notice that they are no longer toys. Last fall, Jeremy Avigad, (...), used a computer assistant called Isabelle to verify the Prime Number Theorem, (...) And in December, Georges Gonthier, (...), announced a successful verification of the proof of the Four Color Theorem, using a proof assistant called Coq.
Have a Coq and a Smile, Science
Excerpts: Why would hundreds of computer scientists devote more than 30 years to developing mathematical proof assistants that most mathematicians don't even want? The answer is that they are chasing an even more elusive grail: self-checking computer code.
In a sense, the statement "this program (or chip, or operating system) performs task x correctly" is a mathematical theorem, and programmers would love to have that kind of certainty. (...)
"When the division algorithm turned out to be wrong on the Pentium chip, that was a real wake-up call to Intel," (...).
Experts Debate Whether 'Hobbits' Were Human, NPR ME
News broke last October that archeologist had discovered a hobbit-like creature on an Indonesian island. Now neurologists have examined the creature's brain and believe it to be a lost relative of modern humans, just a bit smaller. But the debate is far from over.
The skull of Homo floresiensis, a newly discovered, "hobbit-size" species of human, next to a modern human skull (right). Fully adult, H. floresiensis was barely three-feet-tall and had a skull the size of a grapefruit.
Since it was first reported last October, the Flores fossil has generated much interest -- and controversy -- within the scientific community.?
Critics Silenced By Scans Of Hobbit Skull, Nature News
Comparisons with pygmies and chimps bolster new species claim. A computer-generated model of the skull of Homo floresiensis, our diminutive human relative, confirms that the controversial specimens from Indonesia do indeed represent a new species. The study of the creature's brainpan shows that it was neither a pygmy nor an individual with a malformed skull and brain, as some critics contend. This lends support to the discovery team's assertion that the metre-tall specimen belongs to a species distinct from Homo erectus.

The Brain of LB1, Homo floresiensis, Science
Excerpts: The brain of Homo floresiensis is assessed by comparing a virtual endocast from the type specimen (LB1) with endocasts from great apes, Homo erectus, Homo sapiens, a human pygmy, a human microcephalic, Sts 5 (...) and WT 17000 (...). (...) data indicate that LB1 is not a microcephalic or pygmy. LB1's brain size versus body size scales like an australopithecine, but its endocast shape resembles that of Homo erectus. LB1 has derived frontal and temporal lobes (...), which are consistent with capabilities for higher cognitive processing.

Deep Brain Stimulation For Treatment-Resistant Depression, Neuron
Excerpts: Treatment-resistant depression is a severely disabling disorder with no proven treatment options once multiple medications, psychotherapy, and electroconvulsive therapy have failed. Based on our preliminary observation that the subgenual cingulate region (Brodmann area 25) is metabolically overactive in treatment-resistant depression, we studied whether the application of chronic deep brain stimulation to modulate BA25 could reduce this elevated activity and produce clinical benefit (...). Antidepressant effects were associated with a marked reduction in local cerebral blood flow as well as changes in downstream limbic and cortical sites, (...). These results suggest that (...) white matter can effectively reverse symptoms in otherwise treatment-resistant depression.

A Pacemaker for Depression?, Science Now
Electrodes placed deep in the brains of severely depressed patients alleviate their misery when no other treatments can, according to new research.
Deep thinker. Deep brain stimulation delivers electricity to specific regions of the brain.
CREDIT: Helen Mayberg and Andres Lozano
Deep brain stimulation is a relatively new approach to treating brain disease. Unlike electroconvulsive or "shock" therapy, which involves placing electrodes on the scalp, deep brain stimulation delivers small jolts of electricity directly to specific parts of the brain. The technique has been used with some success to alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, but no one had tried it for depression.
Excerpts: A research group (...) is developing a brain-computer interface, a device that transforms electrical or magnetic brain signals into commands a computer can understand. Equipment of this kind is necessary. For instance, it enables physically disabled persons to use a computer keyboard. The Brain-Computer Interface, or BCI, (...) is based on mental activity. When a person thinks about performing a particular task such as raising a finger, this gives rise to brain activity that can be measured (...) The BCI being developed in Sams' group relies specifically on the analysis of brain signals created by the movement of a finger. (...)
A Fishy Therapy, A Thriving But Controversial Dietary Supplement, Science News
Shark cartilage is for sale all over the Web. Powders of it, (...) are among the products offered at sites specializing in herbal remedies, vitamins, health wares, and bodybuilding aids. These Internet sites claim that the cartilage skeletons of sharks and their close relatives-skates and rays-offer various health benefits. Inhibiting cancer is often at the top of the list. To support that contention, sellers point to studies indicating that something in shark cartilage can inhibit the blood vessel growth that tumors rely on for access to nutrients.
No Bones. This shark skeleton, on display at the Smithsonian Institution, is all cartilage. As such, it's one of the richest sources of raw material for an industry that sells powdered cartilage as a cancer therapy. To date, however, no major study has shown it to be effective. J. Miller

Natural Selection As We Speak, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: The forces of variation and selection which shape human language have become issues of extensive research. Documentation of sounds and sound patterns, and their evolution over the past 7000-8000 years allows linguists to quantify the important role of human perception, articulation and imperfect learning as language is passed from one generation to the next. (...) presents a new approach to the problem of how genetically unrelated languages across the world often show similar sound patterns, without invoking innate mechanisms specific to grammar. Languages as far apart as Native American, Australian Aboriginal, Austronesian and Indo-European show similar patterns of vowel and consonant (...)
Excerpts: Hardly articulate, the tiny strangleweed, a pale parasitic plant, can sense the presence of friends, foes, and food, and make adroit decisions on how to approach them.
Mustard weed, a common plant with a six-week life cycle, can't find its way in the world if its root-tip statolith - a starchy "brain" that communicates with the rest of the plant - is cut off.
The ground-hugging mayapple plans its growth two years into the future, based on computations of weather patterns.
Friends, Enemies Communicate With Plants In Similar Ways, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: Two soil-dwelling strangers - a friend and a foe - approach a plant and communicate with it in order to enter a partnership. The friend wants to trade nitrogen for food. The foe is a parasite that wants to burrow in and harm the plant. In a new finding (...) have found that the two strangers communicate with the plant in very similar ways. The plant's responses to both friend and foe are also remarkably similar. Using high-tech microscopy and florescent imaging techniques that allow for real-time, three-dimensional study in living cells over time, the NC State researchers discovered (...).
Ice or Lava Sea on Mars? A Transatlantic Debate Erupts, Science
Excerpts: Martian lavas could look so much like sea ice because similar processes shape both. But on Mars, McEwen sees--among other volcanic features--small edifices (...) like the ones lavas form on Earth. (...). The apparently sunken lava may just be the result of lava withdrawing beneath a solid crust, he says.
Resolution of the matter will likely require targeting the exact areas HRSC imaged with the camera and ground-penetrating radar (...) due for launch this August. Until then, water or rock may remain in the eye of the beholder.
Deep-Sea Mission Finds Life In The Lost City, Nature
Chalky spires in the Atlantic depths play host to primitive archaea. The towering limestone chimneys of Lost City, a unique field of hydrothermal vents deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean, are packed with unusual life forms, say scientists. Five years ago, a team of US and Swiss researchers stumbled upon this system of seafloor geysers while studying an underwater mountain.

Outdoing Mother Nature, Science Now
Humans erode more earth than all natural processes combined
Wearing down. Severe soil erosion in a wheat field near Washington State University. Credit: Jack?Dykinga/USDA
The idea that human activity erodes soil from Earth's surface faster than it accumulates is not new. For example, plowing loosens soil, allowing water to carry it away into river deltas and ocean basins, where it eventually turns into sedimentary rock. In the absence of agriculture, most of this soil would be kept in place by the roots of forests and grasslands. But the size of the disparity between human-driven and natural erosion has remained a matter of debate.
Penrose: The Answer's Not 42, Wired News
Excerpts: Penrose makes a unique tour guide, overhauling components of big-bang cosmology and quantum mechanics (...).
(...) Penrose spoke at Stephen Hawking's 60th birthday celebration. Penrose argued that the underlying assumption of string theory -- that space-time consists of anywhere from 10 to 26 dimensions -- is simply wrongheaded and unmotivated by either intuition or evidence. (Penrose devotes much of the last four chapters of his book to this same argument and to an alternative model he sets up in string theory's absence, using a mathematical formalism Penrose invented called "twistors.")
First Evidence For Entanglement of Three Macroscopic Objects, Physics News Update
Excerpts: First evidence for entanglement of three macroscopic objects has been seen in a superconducting circuit built at the University of Maryland. By examining an electrical circuit operating at temperatures near absolute zero, the researchers have found new evidence that the laws of quantum mechanics apply not just to microscopic particles such as atoms and electrons, but also to large electronic devices called superconducting quantum bits (qubits).
While researchers have previously created superconducting qubits, and other groups have entangled two macroscopic objects (Update 558), this research is the first to observe the quantum interaction of three macroscopic components: a niobium inductor-capacitor (LC) circuit plus a pair of Josephson junctions, each a sandwich of two superconductors separated by an insulator.
Brutal Bubbles: Collapsing Orbs Rip Apart Atoms, Science News
Excerpts: Indeed, the new data provide "indirect evidence" of temperatures of hundreds of thousands of degrees K inside the imploding bubbles, (...).
(...) reported that imploding bubbles produced by ultrasound can host what he calls sonofusion, finds the new results encouraging. "High-temperature plasma states … are a necessary precondition for significant and detectable thermonuclear fusion," he says
Suslick acknowledges that a plasma is a step toward fusion. However, he says, the new work "can neither confirm nor deny" such claims because his experiment and Taleyarkhan's fusion experiments had too many technical differences to permit meaningful comparisons.
The Reaction-Diffusion Approach to Morphogenesis, arXiv
Abstract: Morphogenesis is the ensemble of processes that determines form, shape and patterns in organisms. Based on a reaction-diffusion theoretical setting and some prototype reaction schemes, we make a review of the models and experiments that support possible mechanisms of morphogenesis. We present specific case studies from chemistry (Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction) and biology (formation of wing eyespots patterns in butterflies). We show the importance of conservation laws in the establishment of patterning in biological systems, and their relevance to explain phenotypic plasticity in living organisms. Mass conservation introduces a memory effect in biological development and phenotypic plasticity in patterns of living organisms can be explained by differences on the initial conditions occurring during development.
New Poll Finds Bush Priorities Are Out of Step With Americans, NY Times
Excerpts: Americans are increasingly resistant to the president's plan to revamp Social Security, according to a Times/CBS News poll.
Editor's Note: Can there be a statistical test to check if there is evidence for voter fraud in an election, wose results depended to a large degree on unverifiable electronic votes and where many other methods of measuring public opinion (including exit polls) produce different outcomes?
A Force for Good, NY Times
Excerpts: There is no contradiction in this. Indeed, dealing with typhoons, tsunamis and guerrilla insurgencies all at the same time has brought the marines back to their roots as unconventional warriors. The "Small Wars Manual," the sacred text of the corps, is the product of the lessons learned in amphibious landings in the Caribbean, Central America and the Far East in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Its focus is describing all the ways you can dominate the enemy with - but preferably without - firing a shot.
Editor's Note: One might consider potential complications when it is not always clear if troops are participating in military or humaitarian operations. Will the military compete with humanitarian organizations for funds?
American Jails in Iraq Are Bursting With Detainees, NY Times
Excerpts: The American military's major detention centers in Iraq have swelled to capacity and are holding more people than ever, senior military officials say.
The growing detainee population reflects recent changes in how the military has been waging the war and in its policies toward detainees, the officials say.
The military swept up many Iraqis before the Jan. 30 elections in an attempt to curb violence and halted all releases before the vote. Other detainees have been captured in ambitious recent offensives across the Sunni Triangle, (...).

Top US Biologists Oppose Biodefence Boom, New Scientist
Excerpts: Efforts to defend the US against bioterrorists - by throwing money at research - are backfiring, says a 750-strong group of top scientists. (...)
More than half of the US scientists studying bacterial diseases have this week written to the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) - their main funding agency - charging that the largess has created "a crisis for microbiological research".
(...) has diverted research away from germs that - unlike putative weapons agents - already cause significant disease
Report Faults Smallpox Vaccination Campaign, Science Now
Excerpts: A review of the ill-fated U.S. smallpox vaccination campaign charges that the Bush Administration overruled scientific advice and moved ahead on a major vaccination effort without a clear explanation. The report, issued today by Institute of Medicine (IOM), also blames "constraints" on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the program falling short of its goals.
After the 9/11 attacks and anthrax letters, President Bush announced a plan to vaccinate 500,000 health care workers, and eventually up to 10 million other emergency responders (...).
With Terror in Mind, a Formulaic Way to Parse Sentences, NY Times
Excerpts: The software helps federal researchers look for clues to terrorist and criminal activities in "the text from the dispatches from around the world, the field reports, the newspaper articles and the chat rooms," said David L. Bean, Attensity's co-founder.
"The intelligence community has plenty of systems for doing six degrees of separation, for putting two and two together," Dr. Bean said. "But they need structured data in order to do it. We give them that structure."
The intelligence agencies declined to discuss whether they use the software.
