I haven't read the whole thing (and may not), but based on the assertions at the top, the author is saying "Social psychology IS NOT SCIENCE." Which may be right, but I don't think that's what he intends to say... http://wjh.harvard.edu/~jmitch...
Just about a month ago, I derailed a "wearable tech" thread to talk about accuracy and headphones, being then just about to buy a new pair of headphones because my 5-year-old (or older!) Sennheiser PX100's were wearing out (headband and earpads). With my usual lightning speed, I have now ordered new headphones.
I am now transferred to loans/circulations department after 2 years in technical services and 5 in reference/information services. Any advice/recommendations on what to read, what mailing list to subscribe etc would be greatly appreciated.
Huh. According to Weather Underground, today's high in Las Vegas is four degrees higher than in my part of Livermore (currently 104F, high projected 105F). Fortunately, we took our walk at 9:30, when it was only 93F. With the Livermore wind missing in action, unfortunately.
Loving good insulation: It's currently 97F outside. The cooling side of our HVAC is set for 80F. The A/C has yet to come on, and probably won't for a while. (We both find 80F perfectly comfortable in summer. In winter, the heating side is set for 70F.)
OK! Word's grammar-checker is *perfect* on this clause: "the always-interesting issues around 'predatory' journals." There's a green line under "always-interesting" and it suggests changing the hyphen to a space.
Scheduled my Time Warner service disconnection (which you can only do over the phone, which is total bullshit). At the end of the call, the woman encouraged me to "keep Time Warner in mind for my future home telecommunications and entertainment needs".
Unusual hike today (note: I'm really a good walker, not an adventurous hiker). The Ramblers--the wimpier of the two groups--were supposed to take an unmarked trail at one point. The person leading us had never been on that trail. After a while...it petered out. 15-25 feet above a creek bed that had a trail.
So, sometimes I ask my pals for an article because ... well, it's easy, but it's not just that. It's also a natural place to turn, a friendly, informal, connected place. I love ILL, but when there's a way to accomplish what I need through already-established relationships, it's tempting not just because of convenience.
