Texas rejects allowing academics to fact-check public school textbooks submitted by Mixplate to news

University professors aren't exactly a shining example of this these days either.

That doesn't mean they aren't atheist. The only requirement to be an atheist is not to believe in a super natural deity.

You can still be a totally irrational moron and an atheist.

Middle school girl who suffered asthma attack faces punishment submitted by Jourdy288 to news

If it is a standard Albuterol inhaler no. It's not mind altering. There are dangerous side effects from an overdose but that's about it.

This is a case where the rule is being applied without common sense.

MORE LIES=> Michelle Fields Said Corey Lewandowski Used "TEETH" and "FIST" in Police Report - The Gateway Pundit submitted by TheDude2 to news

sigh

Did anyone stop to think that this might be a general weapon classification by the Jupiter police department? Like she checked a box on the report form that is the all encompassing box for "human anatomy was used"?

I mean have you people even taken the fucking time to look at what a report form at a typical police department looks like?

That came to my mind immediately when I first saw this story having been someone who has had to file a police report.

Edit: Well 16 downvoats later and no one has actually refuted my point. Congrats Trump supporters on voat. You are officially the SJWs of the right.

Scientists tried to redo 38 climate change-denying studies and it didn't go very well submitted by Mixplate to science

Actually I have to stop you there because this is wrong. they are not made more precise in the sense that they reach a higher level of precision (IE more digits), they are make more precise in order to correct failures (sometimes catastrophic) in the theory that are due to fault assumptions when deriving the theory.

I do computational chemistry and the models we are talking about can sometimes be great for a certain set of conditions and then bomb so miserably as soon as you take them out of the conditions they were parameterized in. For instance popular water models (TIPxP, SPC, etc.) are usually parameterized to replicate properties of liquid water, but when you try to study say water freezing many of the water models fail and fail hard. TIP4P underestimates the freezing point by almost 50K. If your desire is to study ice these models will never give you a correct prediction of real water because it is unable to accurately replicate the physics. And when it comes to claimant simulations they use similar methodologies as we do in chemistry.

It's not to say the models are trash as they can be useful for a qualitative information or can be accurate up to a limit, but I don't like bad information hanging around about how these work. The models at this point are largely explanatory or in other words can explain events we've already see in experiment, but when it comes to expansive predictive capabilities we still got some work to do. We are getting better and better models, but we still have a lot of limitations on how good of a model we can make.

Family's Solar Panels Too Powerful, Shut Down submitted by 33degree to news

LoyalSol 5 points -3 points (+2|-5) ago

Solar efficiency is not quite there just yet, but getting closer. The problem we have is the best panels we can make require materials that are called rare earth metals for a reason.

That said some of the new technologies coming from advances in quantum dot research is looking pretty cool.

Edit: Sorry for ruining your delusions. They aren't ready.
