But Dooley had merely fainted; the seconds confessed they had so feared the outcome that they loaded the pistols with blanks. Although we cannot rule out that this signal was of nuclear origin". We have a system for communicating results in which the need for retraction is exploding, the replicability of research is diminishing, and the most standard measure of journal quality is becoming a farce.
In the early s Scott died inwhen both the adversaries had become judges, one of the sights then to see was Meredith helping his brother judge up the steep Court House steps, a result of the lameness in his leg that had remained with Scott since their encounter.

The last author of the study told Retraction Watch the paper is going to be retracted, because the authors made a fundamental error calculating the amount of zinc present in canned foods.
This phenomenon occurs because the surface of the early fireball is quickly overtaken by the expanding hydrodynamic shock wave. Yet it is exactly the spectacularity of statistical flukes that increase the odds of getting published in a high prestige journal.
Generally speaking, to be effective, a retraction must be a "frank and full" withdrawal of the defamatory accusation. Merely stating that the subject of the statement denies the accusation is not enough, nor is a weak, grudging, or half-hearted correction.
