Why you can’t trust research: 3 problems with the quality of science

Traditional scientific communication directly threatens the quality of scientific research. Today's system is unreliable -- or worse! Our system of scholarly publishing reliably gives the highest status to research that is most likely to be wrong.

Qatar's influence in Egypt runs deeper than its pockets

Qatar's influence in Egypt runs deeper than its pockets | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it
Qatar's generosity towards Egypt is widely seen by non-Islamist Egyptians as the Gulf state seeking to establish a foothold in countries that have been swept by Arab Spring revolts.

(...)

Qatar was an anathema to former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, who had made no secret of his contempt for the super-rich state and what he saw as its propaganda tool, Al Jazeera television.

But all that changed with the fall of the Mubarak regime in 2011 and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood as Egypt's most powerful political group.

Qatar has since poured billions of dollars into Egypt, mostly as bonds to bolster the country's fast-dwindling coffers. Top Qatari officials, from the emir down to the head of his intelligence agency and the powerful prime minister, have been frequent visitors to Cairo in recent months.

On the Egyptian side, the Brotherhood, rather than the foreign ministry, controls the country's dealings with Qatar. Khairat El Shater, a wealthy businessman and arguably the Brotherhood's most powerful figure who was disqualified from running in the country's 2012 election for president, has been the regime's point man on relations with Qatar, frequently flying there on unannounced visits.

Top Qatari officials say they are helping Egypt because they do not want to see the country's economy continue to sink. (The National)

Roubini: Ten QE Questions

Roubini: Ten QE Questions | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it
Most observers regard unconventional monetary policies such as quantitative easing (QE) as necessary to jump-start growth in today’s anemic economies. But questions about the effectiveness and risks of QE have begun to multiply as well. In particular, ten potential costs associated with such policies merit attention.

 

First, while a purely “Austrian” response (that is, austerity) to bursting asset and credit bubbles may lead to a depression, QE policies that postpone the necessary private- and public-sector deleveraging for too long may create an army of zombies: zombie financial institutions, zombie households and firms, and, in the end, zombie governments. So, somewhere between the Austrian and Keynesian extremes, QE needs to be phased out over time.

La lettre et/ou l'image : ce qui est premier ?

Entendant Michel Serres, parcourant le livre de Raffaele Simone (Pris dans la Toile, L’esprit au temps du web, le débat Gallimard trad., 2012), après avoir lu l’entretien entre Boris Cyrulnik et Denis Peschanski (Mémoire et traumatisme : l’individu et la fabrique des grands récits, INA 2012), une question vient à l’esprit : la lettre ou l’image, Qu’est-ce qui est premier ? Autrement dit on parle d’une civilisation de l’oral, une de l’écrit et une troisième du numérique, mais quelle est la place de l’image ? Autrement dit l’image a-t-elle autant de force civilisatrice que l’écrit, le mot, la lettre. Dans la même ligne, Pierre Babin et Marie France Kouloumdjian s’interrogeaient en 1980 sur « les nouveaux modes de comprendre » (Le Centurion, 1983), nous montrent combien nous avons négligé l’image au cours de notre histoire et combien sa mise en avant, via les écrans de cinéma, de télévision et d’ordinateur, nous invite à en mesurer l’importance.

Dans ce travail sérieux et dense, D. Brezis propose une lecture vive et qui ne fait pas l’économie des détours singuliers, voire paradoxaux de la pensée de Levinas. A la clé : des propositions d’interprétations originales, fortes et fécondes.

oAnth - "offene Ablage: nothing to hide"'s insight:

[...]

 

Sur le plan de la méthodique, l’auteur, désireux de s’écarter de la dichotomie entre ceux qui lisent le parcours levinassien comme une continuité sur laquelle se greffent des ruptures, des approfondissements – lecture que Levinas propose lui-même de son œuvre – et ceux qui partagent son œuvre en segments qui tendent à se contredire, l’auteur donc, adopte une méthode personnelle qui consiste à lire Levinas contre lui-même, en s’inspirant de la forme du Talmud, qui "prévient toute fixation idolatrique" . Aussi, plus concrètement, D. Brezis décide de se frayer un chemin dans la pensée levinassienne avec pour boussole cette exigence : "ne pas statufier sa pensée en la moulant dans une forme canonique ou dogmatique, la suivre bien plutôt dans la pluralité de ses versions ou versants contradictoires, c’est la condition première pour la garder vivante" .

 

L’ouvrage est riche de citations précises, de justifications claires et rigoureuses et il faut se réjouir de ce souci d’une argumentation qui ne fait pas l’économie des détours de la pensée de Levinas pour en mettre au jour les paradoxes et les perspectives les plus originales.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Une légende du surréalisme s'est assez vite créée, largement liée à la place que ses œuvres auront faite au rêve, au merveilleux et à l'amour. Mais, des commencements quasi magiques — l'écriture automatique, puis l'écriture en état d'hypnose — jusqu'au lent recul d'après-guerre, il aura été un mouvement en évolution permanente, réévaluant constamment sa doctrine, jetant des ponts vers la politique dans l'espoir d'une révolution, étendant son emprise aux arts de la vue, et suscitant à l'étranger, enfin, d'autres surréalismes. Ce sont tous ces aspects qu'étudie tour à tour ce livre qui ne se limite pas, comme souvent, à la description d'un bouleversement littéraire, mais propose une histoire générale où sont envisagés sa théorie, ses moyens d'action collective, tracts et revues, toute sa palette de pratiques esthétiques, et son ouverture internationale. Il ne s'agit ainsi de rien d'autre que de répondre à la question que posait André Breton lui-même : « Qu'est-ce que le surréalisme ? »

Climate change and water mismanagement parch Egypt

Climate change and water mismanagement parch Egypt | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Climate change, a fast growing population, ill-designed infrastructure, high levels of pollution and lack of law enforcement have made Egypt a country thirsty for water — both in terms of quantity and quality.

The River Nile, which is considered poor by many experts and hydrologists, lies at lower altitude than the rest of the country. Massive electric pumps extract the water from the river’s bed and canals and direct it to industry, agriculture and for individual water use.

A significant portion of the water contained in Lake Nasser’s 5,000 square kilometer basin is lost to evaporation, while old networks of leaking pipes also deprive the country of satisfactory access to its most important resource: water.

In order to debate water scarcity in Egypt, its causes, and how climate change makes the issue more pressing than ever, as well as looking to solutions, a panel of experts were invited to participate in the 13th Cairo Climate Talk last week entitled “Growing Thirst: Sustainable Water Solutions for Egypt.”

Tarek Kotb, the First Assistant Minister in the Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, and a member of the panel discussion, talked about the dwindling water share per capita with a sense of urgency. “Every year, the Egyptian population grows by 1.8 million, while the annual quota of Nile water allocated to Egypt, 55 billion cubic meters, has remained unchanged since the 1959 Nile Water Agreement,” he says.

While Egyptians in the 1960s could enjoy a water share per capita of 2800 cubic meters for all purposes, the current share has dropped to 660 cubic meters today—below the international standard defining water poverty of 1000 cubic meters.

Kotb estimates that Egypt is gradually going to leave the stage of water scarcity and enter a phase of drastic water stress in the next 40 years, if no sustainable water management is put in place.

“By 2050, there will be about 160 million Egyptians and only 370 cubic meters of water per capita,” he says. While Egypt has other options for its water needs, such as tapping into groundwater basins and desalinating sea-water, the bulk of water is still extracted from the Nile, leading to longstanding tensions with the other Nile basin countries.

Confronté à une baisse des visiteurs occidentaux en raison des incertitudes politiques, le gouvernement égyptien cherche à attirer de nouveaux touristes, notamment iraniens.

Le ministre du Tourisme Hisham Zaazou effectuera à partir de lundi une visite à Téhéran pour «rétablir l'activité touristique en Egypte et découvrir des marchés nouveaux et diversifiés», indique dimanche le ministère dans un communiqué. Le président iranien Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a effectué au début du mois la première visite en Egypte d'un président iranien depuis la révolution islamique de 1979.

L'activité issue du tourisme représentait encore récemment plus de 10% du PIB égyptien. En 2010, 14,7 millions de touristes s'étaient rendus en Egypte. Ils n'étaient plus que 9,8 millions en 2011.

Scientists have known about these ridiculously energetic and high-velocity particles for nearly a hundred years. In daily life, cosmic rays may be familiar as the source of extra radiation airline passengers are exposed to. However scientists have been uncertain about where cosmic rays come from. The extreme conditions of temperature and speed that accompany supernovae and their remains made them a natural starting point for guesses. Now two separate Science papers finally provide evidence that cosmic rays do indeed come from supernovae remnants.

Egypt bakers threaten strike over payments

Egypt bakers threaten strike over payments | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Egyptian bakers are threatening strike action unless the government meets demands including back-payment of financial incentives, raising the prospect of fresh unrest in the crisis-ridden north African country.

Abdullah Ghorab, head of the bakers' association which represents 25,000 private bakeries across the country, said imminent strike action has been postponed following a meeting with the government. The association gave the government 15 days to meet its demands.Any shortage of bread in Egypt would likely touch off unrest as the government grapples with an economic crisis rooted in two years of political turmoil. The heavily-indebted state faces a deficit that will hit 12.3 percent of GDP in the year to the end of June unless economic reforms are implemented.
 A country of 84 million, Egypt is the biggest importer of wheat in the world. The state has long subsidised bread production, with the cheapest loaves selling for 5 piastres, or less than 1 US cent.(...)Ghorab said the 25,000 privately-run bakeries represented in his association include 19,000 that produce 5-piastre loaves, and 6,000 more that produce 20 piastre loaves. The state operates another 107 bakeries, he added. Ghorab said the government owed bakeries 400 million Egyptian pounds ($59.34 million) in payments dating back six months. The payments cover an incentive paid to bakers to produce low-price loaves and an extra subsidy to cover higher fuel prices. "The head of the government and the supply minister came to us and promised that within 15 days they would meet the demands of the owners of the bakeries," Ghorab said. More on: http://www.tradearabia.com/news/MISC_231522.html

Voici 60 ans, en février 1953, à Londres était signé un accord historique sur la dette allemande. Les termes de l’accord signé tranchent radicalement avec la manière dont est aujourd’hui traitée la Grèce. Après la seconde guerre mondiale, de multiples conditions ont été réunies pour permettre à l’Allemagne de l’Ouest de se développer rapidement en permettant la reconstruction de son appareil industriel. Non seulement la dette contractée par l’Allemagne en-dehors des deux guerres mondiales a été réduite de plus de 60%, mais le règlement des dettes de guerre et le paiement des réparations aux victimes civiles et aux Etats ont été reportés à une date indéterminée : de fait, à la réunification allemande qui est intervenue en 1990 et au traité de paix qui a été signé à Moscou la même année entre les autorités des deux Allemagnes en cours d’unification, les Etats-Unis, l’URSS, le Royaume-Uni et la France. Le poids des réparations sur l’économie allemande a donc été longtemps différé. Et dans le cas des réparations dues à la Grèce, celles-ci n’ont pas représenté le moindre effort de la part de l’Allemagne puisque les autorités allemandes refusent de donner suite aux demandes grecques...

Early Neolithic Water Wells Reveal the World's Oldest Wood Architecture

Early Neolithic Water Wells Reveal the World's Oldest Wood Architecture | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

The European Neolithization ~6000−4000 BC represents a pivotal change in human history when farming spread and the mobile style of life of the hunter-foragers was superseded by the agrarian culture. Permanent settlement structures and agricultural production systems required fundamental innovations in technology, subsistence, and resource utilization. Motivation, course, and timing of this transformation, however, remain debatable. Here we present annually resolved and absolutely dated dendroarchaeological information from four wooden water wells of the early Neolithic period that were excavated in Eastern Germany.

Or, après la disparition inexplicable d'un bras mais surtout la trouée dans un pantalon de pyjama neuf, le lion se trouve rapidement abattu d'une balle de revolver. L'hippopotame se noie malencontreusement et finit en paix, mais en rondelles, dans le compost de madame Schönwetter. Les quatre bouquetins ainsi que monsieur Gleiwitz lui-même sont tous transpercés d'un canif devant l'évidence qu'il allait être impossible de remplacer la porcelaine. Une délirante dénonciation de la bêtise humaine, et surtout de la bêtise petite-bourgeoise. Les flots de discours indirects libres totalement dénués de sens sont un régal, l'avertissement est quant à lui hilarant. La petite-bourgeoisie possédante n'a qu'à bien se tenir : gare à elle si elle maintient ses œillères. Car l'auteur est dada et Dada se fout de tout.

Egypt's Options Narrow To IMF, Qatar As Money Runs Out

Egypt's Options Narrow To IMF, Qatar As Money Runs Out | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Egypt seems to realise the money has nearly run out and it must turn to the IMF or a willing friend in the Gulf, where it now has just one, Qatar.

After months of delays, the Islamist government has produced a new plan to reverse a slide in its foreign currency reserves and tackle a budget deficit that could overwhelm a stable wealthy nation, let alone a country riven by political conflict.

This plan relies on someone else stumping up to keep the Arab world's most populous nation afloat. Any hope that the government can hold out until after parliamentary elections due to finish in June and delay highly unpopular cuts seems slim, with signs of extreme economic stress all around.

That narrows Cairo's immediate options to the International Monetary Fund, which will demand the kind of austerity measures that could provoke yet more street violence in the middle of an election campaign.

 

The other option is Qatar, the only wealthy Gulf nation truly sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood government. Doha has already provided help but in amounts that have failed to prevent Egypt's currency reserves from falling worryingly low.

"The authorities have little margin of manoeuvre left without fresh capital flows into the Egyptian economy," said Alia Moubayed, an economist at Barclays.

 

Above all, economists believe, Egypt needs a political consensus on reforms to stabilise its finances. However, this seems a forlorn hope as the Islamists of President Mohamed Mursi struggle with the liberal and leftist opposition over the future character of Egypt following the 2011 revolution.(...)

 

PROBLEMS PILE UP

Since then the problems have piled up. The central bank, which spent $20 billion trying to defend the Egyptian pound during and after the uprising that overthrew Hosni Mubarak, accepted the inevitable. In late December, it began regular dollar auctions, allowing the pound to fall more than eight percent under the new system and taking its total loss since the revolution to 14 percent.

Defending the pound helped to curb a rise in the price of imported goods on which even the poorest Egyptians often depend, but it has been enormously costly for the state.  (..)

 

RALLYING AROUND?

Investment Minister Saleh professes optimism that the nation will rally behind the programme of austerity and reform that is bound to be the price of an IMF deal. "We don't see any reasons why the Egyptian people should reject the programme. They will eventually realise that the benefits they will get will outweigh the load they will carry," he told investors in Dubai on Monday.

Few analysts and economists share his optimism. Even after the parliamentary elections - which will drag on from April to June in four stages - radical change seems remote. (...)

Egypt-actus's curator insight, February 26, 2013 1:06 PM

A Cairo administrative court on Tuesday ruled that Egypt must demolish all illegal tunnels between itself and Gaza.

"According to the law, the state must control ports and areas of entry to and exit from its lands," the court headed by Judge Abdel Hamid al-Moqannen said.

The ruling is enforceable by all state institutions especially the ministries of interior and defence, a judicial source told Aswat Masriya.

Ex-MP Hamdi al-Fakharani had filed a lawsuit to demand obliging President Mohamed Mursi to demolish all tunnels, 450 main tunnel and 750 sub-tunnels, between Sinai and Gaza.

The campaign Egypt launched months ago to seal off smuggling tunnels between its land and the Gaza Strip causes thousands of Palestinians to lose their means of subsistence.

The underground network of tunnels is a lifeline to Gaza through which around 30 percent of the goods that reach the strip are smuggled.

[...]

 

(L)e Concile de Trente (1545-1563) qui lance la contre-offensive contre le protestantisme, la Contre-Réforme, impose un retour à une musique plus simple, qui donne le primat au texte religieux, au dogme. Cette réforme musicale est confiée à Palestrina.

Les conséquences, au niveau artistique, seront considérables : c’est le retour à la monodie, à un chant simplifié d’une seule voix à la fois, simplement accompagné d’une basse continue qui permet au chanteur d’orner le texte à sa guise. Car à Florence, parallèlement aux impératifs religieux, dans la Camerata, le salon du comte Bardi, artistes et érudits s’employaient à retrouver la tragédie antique dont on savait qu’elle était en partie chantée sans qu’on sache comment.

 

Peri, dans la préface de son Euridice, prônait « une forme intermédiaire » entre la mélodie du « parler ordinaire » et du chant. Ce sera ce fameux « recitar col canto», 'réciter en chantant', ce « favellare in armonia », ce 'parler en musique', souple et serpentine déclamation chantée qui épouse les accents de la parole dont la mélodie ne semble qu'une prolongation, qu'une naturelle accentuation. C’est la musica rappresentativa, ‘la musique théâtrale’, au texte et à l’intrigue compréhensibles, le dramma per musica, le ‘drame en musique’ qu’on n’appellera « opéra », ‘œuvre’ en italien, que bien plus tard. Il appartiendra à Monteverdi de lui donner sa forme la plus parfaite avec cet Orfeo, à la fois manifeste pratique et aboutissement de ces recherches.
