Rookie » The Official Rookie Guide to Female Pickup Artistry
"Picking up boys isn’t hard when you’re a pickup artist (or PUA), aka master of flirtation and, eventually, seduction. As two of the most knowledgeable female PUAs around, we’re here to help you trap the apple of your eye into a romantic web of deceit, trickery, and, most importantly, love. Most PUA guides are by men, for men, and, frankly, we’re tired of dudes getting to wear all the fedoras and hoard all the daft pickup lines. But even though, for that purpose, we might focus on swindling cis bros into falling in love with us with the wink of an eye, this guide could easily apply to all genders. So, without further ado, we present to you Rookie’s No-Nonsense, Womansplain-tastic, Scientifically Vetted, Seriously Women Have Superior PUA Skills to Menz (We Tested This In A Lab Sponsored By AXE Body Spray) Guide to Becoming A Female Pickup Artist."

Good Tips.

Online collaboration: Scientists and the social network : Nature News & Comment
"More than 4.5 million researchers have signed up for ResearchGate, and another 10,000 arrive every day, says Madisch. That is a pittance compared with Facebook’s 1.3 billion active users, but astonishing for a network that only researchers can join. And Madisch has grand goals for the site: he hopes that it will become a key venue for scientists wanting to engage in collaborative discussion, peer review papers, share negative results that might never otherwise be published, and even upload raw data sets. “With ResearchGate we’re changing science in a way that’s not entirely foreseeable,” he says, telling investors and the media that his aim for the site is to win a Nobel prize."

Setting the Record Straight | The Scientist Magazine®
To encourage more researchers to post critiques of each other’s work, Eisen suggests attaching DOIs to constructive comments, so that each comment can itself be cited. “We probably need to make it more formal and offer rewards if we’re to get scientists to really embrace postpublication review,” he says.

Most agree that traditional peer review, for all its problems, will retain a central role in science in the 21st century. But at this point it seems almost inevitable that social media will have a big impact on what happens after publication. “Transformative is a strong word,” says Knoepfler, “but I think it applies here.”

In the Men’s Room
The anthropologist E. B. Tylor conjured the will as the latent promise of freedom against a backdrop of technological innovation, colonial aspirations, Victorian spiritualism, the cybernetic gestures of Charles Babbage, and theories of primitive arithmetic. Through his “science of culture,” Tylor thought about the limits of his own will in such a way as to systematize those limits. Culture was, by definition, a self-organizing spirit, a system whose strength derived from bodies in space and whose materiality was severe in its organizational effect. Might this spirit remain quite vital in a world that seeks leverage upon every aspect of the self, detailing wants, needs, and fears with the click of a mouse and building consumer profiles that promise a transcendent form of knowledge? To what extent does Tylor’s scene of writing resonate with the experience of corresponding to the algorithmic density that swirls around us? To what degree does the epistemic thrust of empire haunt our willful actions in this age of digital self-fashioning? All this willed discernment, calculation, adjustment, and particularizing in the name of and in service to a divinity that shall remain unmarked—where in God’s name did it emerge?
