H undreds of thousands of scientists took to streets around the world in April.
A brief detour from chemistry, branching out into science in general today. The vast majority of people will get their science news from online news site articles, and rarely delve into the research that the article is based on. Note that this is not a comprehensive overview, nor is it implied that the presence of one of the points noted automatically means that the research should be disregarded.

But fabricated stories posing as serious journalism are not likely to go away as they have become a means for some writers to make money and potentially influence public opinion. Even as Americans recognize that fake news causes confusion about current issues and events, they continue to circulate it. Much of the fake news that flooded the internet during the election season consisted of written pieces and recorded segments promoting false information or perpetuating conspiracy theories. The news media has written a lot about fake news and other forms of misinformation, but scholars are still trying to understand it — for example, how it travels and why some people believe it and even seek it out. Science , March DOI: Concern over the problem is global.
A number of respondents to this canvassing about the likely future of social and civic innovation shared concerns. Some said that technology causes more problems than it solves. Some said it is likely that emerging worries over the impact of digital life will be at least somewhat mitigated as humans adapt. Some said it is possible that any remedies may create a new set of challenges. Some of these remarks of concern happen to also include comments about innovations that may emerge. Concerns are organized under four subthemes: Something is rotten in the state of technology; technology use often disconnects or hollows out a community; society needs to catch up and better address the threats and opportunities of tech; and despite current trends, there is reason to hope for better days. Examples include: the decentralized web, end-to-end encryption, AI and machine learning, social media.
The big risk is that any single falsehood that gains traction can negate the significance of a body of true facts. It refutes a staggering array of myths, including claims that drinking potent alcoholic drinks, exposure to high temperatures, or conversely, cold weather, can kill the virus. Berger noted that some people believe, wrongly, that young people or those of African descent are immune some disinformation has a racist, or xenophobic, tone , and that those in warm climates or countries where summer is on its way, do not need to worry too much. The likely consequence, he says, is complacency, which could fuel more premature deaths. The UNESCO official also pointed to a more harmful example of disinformation: encouraging the taking of medication, approved for other purposes, but not yet clinically proven as being effective against COVID Sadly, says Mr. Those who do so, play on emotions, fears, prejudices and ignorance, and claim to bring meaning and certainty to a reality that is complex, challenging and fast-changing.
Editor's Note: Our April 22 article elicited a lengthy response from Dean Ornish , which we publish here, along with a rebuttal from Melinda Wenner Moyer. The author, Dean Ornish, founder of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, is no newcomer to these nutrition debates. For 37 years he has been touting the benefits of very low-fat, high-carbohydrate, vegetarian diets for preventing and reversing heart disease. But the research he cites to back up his op—ed claims is tenuous at best. If anything, our attempts to eat less fat in recent decades have made things worse. Ornish begins his piece with a misleading statistic.

We've all been there. A coronavirus post that could be true and sounds about right, but how do we know it's accurate? To help, the BBC's disinformation-monitoring team is fact-checking and verifying some of the most widely shared fake and misleading stories of the week. A video claiming exactly that has been shared thousands of times and clocked-up more than one million views in a few days. The video, shot from a tall building somewhere in New York, scans across apartment buildings that are apparently blaring out the song Juicy by deceased Brooklyn rapper Biggie.

Он не знал, как зовут этого человека. - Deutscher, ja. Вы немец.
Не жалуюсь. Джабба вытер губы. - Ты на месте. - А-га. - Не хочешь составить мне компанию. У меня на столе пирог с сыром. - Хотела бы, Джабба, но я должна следить за своей талией.
Она оказалась бессмысленной, потому что он ввел задание в неверной последовательности, но ведь Следопыт работал. Но Сьюзан тут же сообразила, что могла быть еще одна причина отключения Следопыта. Внутренние ошибки программы не являлись единственными причинами сбоя, потому что иногда в действие вступали внешние силы - скачки напряжения, попавшие на платы частички пыли, повреждение проводов. Поскольку за техникой Третьего узла следили самым тщательным образом, она даже не рассматривала такую возможность. Сьюзан встала и быстро подошла к громадному книжному шкафу с техническими руководствами, взяла с полки справочник с прошитым проволочной спиралью корешком и принялась его листать.
Keine Rotkopfe, простите. - Женщина положила трубку. Вторая попытка также ни к чему не привела. Беккер заглянул в телефонный справочник.
Телефонный разговор со Стратмором взбесил. После истории с Попрыгунчиком всякий раз, когда Мидж казалось, что происходит что-то подозрительное, она сразу же превращалась из кокетки в дьявола, и, пока не выясняла все досконально, ничто не могло ее остановить. - Мидж, скорее всего это наши данные неточны, - решительно заявил Бринкерхофф.
