N.Y.C. Public Schools Will Not Fully Reopen in September – The New York Times

July 14, 2020

QT:{{”
City Hall does not yet know precisely how many parents are planning to keep their children home from school but will begin formally asking families next week. If the number of students who opt for full-time remote learning turns out to be much higher or lower than anticipated, the models could change again. Like many urban school districts, New York has moved away from neighborhood high schools to schools that admit students from all over the city — many of whom have long trips on public transportation.

A Department of Education survey of about 400,000 parents found that about 75 percent of families are tentatively willing to send their children back to school.

He said the proposal, with students attending school physically for a range of one to three days a week, does not allow his family to do much specific planning.

Is Ancient DNA Research Revealing New Truths — or Falling Into Old Traps? – The New York Times

March 1, 2019

has an interesting discussion of review process at Nature

QT:[[”
It has not gone unnoticed that the stunning, magisterial sweep of genetic revisionism, on the one hand, and a genetic emphasis on radical prehistoric migrations, on the other, bear more than a little in common. Some anthropologists
and archaeologists accept this analogy with gallows humor. One told me that I should
model this article after the format of the standard Nature paper: “Ancient DNA Reveals Massive Population Turnovers in the Humanities,” she suggested as a title,
and proposed this as an abstract: “The aristocratic lab scientists arrived with their
superior technology and displaced the pre-existing researchers and their primitive
truth-implements and overcomplicated belief systems.

Serious challenges to its soundness were laid out during
Nature’s peer-review process. And yet, in a highly unusual move, the paper was accepted over the steadfast objections of two of the three peer reviewers on its anonymous panel. Confidential documents made available to me reveal deep concerns with the paper’s methods and its conclusions.
