Five models of peer review: a guide

Identity is inherently entwined within the peer review process by virtue of the numerous models available, which results in varying levels of anonymity for individuals involved in the process. This blog post looks at five peer review models currently in use, describing what they mean for authors, reviewers and editors, and examines the various benefits and consequences of each. Single Anonymised Peer Review We start with the most commonly used and well-established peer review model. In Single An...

Sour Grapes and False Narratives Abound in Chipman Analyses

By Larry Keane The media believed Chipman was the cure-all to push gun control. iStock-BrianAJackson 649236630 U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The truth is sometimes a bitter pill to swallow. That’s become apparent after several media outlets examined why David Chipman couldn’t gain support in the U.S. Senate to be confirmed as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). The media believed Chipman was the cure-all to push gun control. He was their gun control medicine...

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of ...

You can score houseplants and more at these Southern California stores

This year, as Halloween revelers get ready for the spooky season, they might find a bone-chilling Stephen King title or festive-looking pumpkin sharing shelf space with something creepy and crawly. It may just be a pothos plant known for its long runners. Houseplants are as much of a hot ticket item as avocado toast or vinyl and some businesses are banking on that. In Southern California, several stores sell plants in addition to other trendy items, hoping that people will come in for a pilea an...

From immigrants to Americans: race and assimilation during the Great Migration

In recent decades, immigration has reshaped the demographic profile of many Western countries. The economic and political effects of immigration-induced diversity have been investigated by a growing number of studies across the social sciences. Specifically within political economy, most studies have focused on the impact of immigration on the preferences and behavior of the native population (see the recent review by Alesina and Tabellini for a summary). Yet, while population inflows can have b...

When is a .380 (or even a .22) better than a 9mm?

I can't believe I've found myself having this discussion in the year 2021, and yet here we are. This column did not appear in a vacuum. Outside of circumstances so narrow that I can't think of any off the top of my head, a single-action handgun with a one- or two-finger grip and which needs to have its hammer manually cocked to fire for each shot is a fundamentally unserious choice for personal protection in this current year. .

Below The Radar: Counseling Not Criminalization in Schools Act

Take Action Time to Act United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Legislation doesn’t have to mention firearms to have the potential to deliver a substantial hit to our Second Amendment rights. In fact, one bill has no mention of firearms at all, but could lead to serious attacks on our rights as a consequence of the policy it would form. The Counseling Not Criminalization in Schools Act, known as S 2125 and HR 4011 in the Senate and House of Representatives, respectively, pose a hidden but near-exist...

Time Capsule

I just got the scans from my roll of Lomography Tiger 110 film back from Roberts. It looks like it had taken more than a year to shoot it up.
