Blame bad incentives for bad science | Science News
“Real evaluation of scientific quality is as hard as doing the science in the first place,” Nosek says. “So, just like everyone else, scientists use heuristics to evaluate each other's work when they don't have time to dig into it for a complete evaluation.” // or, why we should be just as skeptical of science as everything else

Leif & Thorn – Magic. Comedy. Sparkles. Gay stuff. Unicorns.
Sparkly fantasy dramedy with magic, bilingual shenanigans, lots of queer characters, and the occasional dragon.

A team of Knights are summoned to the capitol city of Ceannis, to guard the embassy of neighboring Sønheim. Thorn is the leader of the knights. Leif prunes the embassy’s rose trees. Both jobs end up being weirder, more complicated, and more hazardous than they look.

16-year-old Maggie Cole is about to make history.
The youngest daughter of an AHL superstar and a stand out defense woman in her own right, MC’s leaving her small but prestigious Minnesota hockey program and headed to Massachusetts. After receiving a call from the Cambridge Knights, a USHL expansion team quickly establishing themselves as a force in the east, MC has to prove to the team, the coaches, and the critics she deserves a spot in the starting lineup. With a supportive head coach leading the charge, MC, her defense partner, Tony Mancini, and the Knights have their eyes set on the elusive Clark Cup. With new teams come old rivalries – MC just didn’t expect the most challenging rivalry would come from within her own d-pair.
A defense woman has never played regulation minutes with a USHL junior hockey team. MC might be the first – that is, if Tony’ll pass to her once in a while.

Trojie - Inception (2010) - loaded [Archive of Our Own]
no one writes smoking hot characterizaton through porn like Trojie, and this whole informal series of relationship development through kink is incredible. But this one, the combination of gunplay and ~loaded~ metaphors and intimacy, is just utterly the best yet. <33333

Washington Monthly | GOP Leadership Has Been Ejected From the Epistemic Bubble
One of the chief problems, Sykes said, was that it had become impossible to prove to listeners that Trump was telling falsehoods because over the past several decades, the conservative news media had “basically eliminated any of the referees, the gatekeepers.”

“There’s nobody,” he lamented. “Let’s say that Donald Trump basically makes whatever you want to say, whatever claim he wants to make. And everybody knows it’s a falsehood. The big question of my audience, it is impossible for me to say that, ‘By the way, you know it’s false.’ And they’ll say, ‘Why? I saw it on Allen B. West.’ Or they’ll say, ‘I saw it on a Facebook page.’ And I’ll say, ‘The New York Times did a fact check.’ And they’ll say, ‘Oh, that’s The New York Times. That’s bulls—.’ There’s nobody — you can’t go to anybody and say, ‘Look, here are the facts.'”

“You look like—like something out of fairy tales,” he groaned, running a hand over his face. “God, I don’t believe I’m even saying this out loud to anyone, much less you.”

“I am something out of fairy tales!” Draco howled at him in fury. “I’m a fucking wizard! So are you! It’s no excuse for your fancying me!” // She kissed his cheek when he left, and then abruptly laid her hand on it, cupping his face and looking at him with a strange, half-familiar expression he couldn’t place until he got home and looked in his one uncracked mirror and saw it there on his own face: you made it out, too. They’d escaped the trap, with its waiting teeth, the one that had swallowed so many of the rest of their family. // this fic is absolutely magnificent; a tour de force of draco characterization from start to finish. (It's shalott, so, of course it is; but even so, the journey this fic takes draco on is one of the best and cleanest and most straightforwardly believable and compelling i've ever read in this fandom.)
