I have been causing trouble again.
Oh, I've seen some tweets from you recently with screenshots and a lot of colouring (yellow, pink, blue...). I was wondering if you were starting an art project.

Probably cut and pasted from an earlier blogpost.
My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!

Thanks, I fixed it. I recycled a few sentences within the piece too. :lol:

Steve Haake, who I guess is the "butterfly who flapped its wings" in the words of that Guardian piece, had written an excellent blog post about the timeline.

The story has now been covered in the failing New York Times.

Sadly, they didn't use the quote that I confirmed was OK with the journalist, in which I described McCrory's excuses as "egregious b.llsh.t".

Given the crashes suffered by motorbike riders in MotoGP we need robust concussion protocols that we can trust. It’s not an impact sport like rugby, but when impacts happen they are severe.

Marc Marquez was ruled out of last weekend’s race after suffering his 4th crash, an enormous high side that he staggered away from. Over the winter he had double vision after crashing on a motocross bike. These are very much live issues in many sports.

The plot thickens... as my colleague James Heathers shows, the journal where most of this malarkey took place has been manipulating its impact factor for years.
