first_imgVICTORIA – The appearance of discriminatory posters at the University of Victoria campus are stark reminders of the need to fight racism in its overt and subtle forms, British Columbia’s attorney general told law students Friday.David Eby denounced the posters found on university bulletin boards that called for a fight against “anti-white hatred,” saying they are reminders of the work that must be done to identify and prevent racism.“The posters here at the University of Victoria remind us that there is important work to be done in identifying and rooting out racism and discrimination and also in educating the broader public who may not face this as part of their day-to-day reality,” he said.Eby said racism and discrimination can be overt in the presence of hate-filled posters, flyers and public protests, but there are also subtle forms where people are denied opportunities due to their ethnicity or economic standing.He said as a young lawyer working in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside he offered advice to Indigenous clients who were regularly turned down by landlords despite their solid qualifications. He also encountered clients on welfare who couldn’t get housing because landlords wouldn’t offer them places to rent.“That’s what discrimination looked like to my clients,” Eby said. “It was a much more subtle kind of discrimination.”Eby’s appearance at the law class is part of the New Democrat government’s promise to re-establish the B.C. Human Rights Commission, disbanded 15 years ago by the former Liberal government. A public meeting and submission process is open until Nov. 17 and human rights legislation is expected next year.“It is, in my opinion, critically important to reassure communities targeted by these kinds of posters, flyers and other attacks that government is engaged in this, that we care about it, we want to address it and that this is a place that supports them as a critical piece of our diverse province,” said Eby.The University of Victoria said the posters were removed immediately, but they are examples of the many forms of racism and discrimination that exist on the campus and in society.“Unfortunately, we also know that discriminatory, racist and anti-Semitic attitudes continue to exist; and this reinforces the importance of education and the responsibility of educational institutions like ours to confront ignorance and actively promote respect, inclusiveness and better understanding’” university president Jamie Cassels said in a statement.B’nai Brith Canada spokesman Daniel Koren said in an interview the posters seek to embolden white supremacists.The posters included coded signs and messages to people in underground movements who espouse hatred against Jewish people and others, he said.“When you’re promoting imagery that says to people who understand what it means — Jews will not replace us — and all those connotations, especially given recent neo-Nazi rallies, yes, I would say definitely the work of white supremacists,” Koren said.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: ADB committed to provide USD 3 billion in sovereign loans to India in 2018, the highest level of assistance since sovereign operations began in the country in 1986, said the annual report of multilateral lending agency. In all, the Asian Development Bank (ADB), owned by 68 member countries, committed a total of USD 3.88 billion, including sovereign loans and co-financing during the year ended December 2018. The demand for ADB assistance continued to grow in 2018. New commitments included USD 21.6 billion in loans, grants and investments from ADB’s own resources, exceeding the target of USD 19.71 billion and up 10 per cent from 2017, said the report released on Tuesday.

Among others, it also provided USD 30 million in equity and USD 20 million in debt security to Annapurna Finance, a microfinance company. In March 2018, ADB signed a cooperation arrangement with the International Solar Alliance, headquartered in India, to promote solar energy deployment across Asia and the Pacific, particularly in South Asia. The arrangement includes support for solar power generation, solar-based minigrids, and transmission systems for integrating solar energy into grids. The alliance’s major objectives include global deployment of over 1,000 gigawatt of solar generation capacity and investment of over USD 1 trillion into solar energy by 2030.last_img read more


Security Council must act if arrest warrant is issued for Sudan leader

3 December 2008The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) today called for concerted action by the Security Council to enforce any arrest warrant against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir for allegedly committing war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in Darfur if the judges issue one. “Genocide continues. Rapes in and around the [internally displaced persons’] camps continue. Humanitarian assistance is still hindered. More than 5,000 displaced persons die each month,” ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said in a briefing on the west Sudanese region, where more than five years of fighting between Government forces, allied Janjaweed militia and rebel groups have killed an estimated 300,000 people and driven another 2.7 million from their homes.“The international community cannot conceal the crimes. President al-Bashir’s criminal actions should not be ignored, statements of ceasefire followed by bombings, denial of massive rapes or promises of justice while torturing the witness should not be supported,” he added, citing numerous such examples that he said had occurred over the past year. “The international community cannot be part of any cover-up of genocide or crimes against humanity.”Mr. Moreno-Ocampo requested the arrest warrant in July. “The Council must be prepared. If the judges decide to issue an arrest warrant against President al-Bashir, there will be a need for united and consistent action to ensure its execution,” he told the 15-member body, whose decisions are binding.Asked at a news conference later what could be realistically expected if a warrant was issued, he replied: “Realistically, I think he will face justice, I don’t know if in two months, or two years.” He said that in the case of a warrant, within Sudan it would be up to the courts to act, but Mr. al-Bashir would be arrested if he flew around the world. Referring to the joint UN-African Union mission in Darfur (UNAMID), the prosecutor told the Council peacekeepers and aid workers should not be forced to work in an environment where the crimes they are trying to prevent are ordered by Mr. al-Bashir himself. “In such an environment, their efforts will never be enough,” he added.The prosecutor said three human rights defenders were arrested in Khartoum last week and tortured for giving information to the ICC and that so-called “suspected ICC witnesses” are arrested and tried for treason. Mr. al-Bashir used the illusion of militia/Janjaweed autonomy for years to disguise the Darfur conflict as a tribal one and “this helped him to continue to carry out the genocide in the face of international scrutiny,” he added.The ICC has already issued arrest warrants for Ahmad Muhammad Harun, former Minister of State for the Interior and currently Minister of State for Humanitarian Affairs, and Janjaweed militia leader Ali Kushayb. Mr. Moreno-Ocampo has also requested arrest warrants for three rebel commanders, whose names have not yet been disclosed, for their role in last year’s deadly attack against peacekeepers in Darfur. read more

Sweden’s development agency has provided 1.6 million SEK, valued at $183,000, to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). “These funds have come at a time when most humanitarian actors have pulled out of many displacement sites in eastern DRC due to security and funding issues, leaving thousands of displaced people even more vulnerable,” said Boubacar Seybou, Head of IOM’s Office in Goma, in a press release. The funding has been crucial to enable IOM to construct and rehabilitate basic water and sanitation infrastructure and provide 4,000 households with shelter kits. In the first three months of 2017, IOM constructed 324 latrines with hand wash stations, 120 showers and 35 rubbish pits in four targeted displacement sites. Over the next 12 months, IOM will continue to provide life-saving assistance and protection to vulnerable people in displacement sites in North Kivu, thanks to additional financing from Sweden.For decades, DRC has experienced conflict and instability, triggering mass displacements and abuses of human rights at the hands of warring factions against innocent civilian populations. By the end of April 2017, there were 3.7 million internally displaced persons in the DRC, making it the African country most affected by internal displacement. North Kivu remains the province with the most population movement. Unlike in other provinces, armed violence represents the sole cause of displacement. read more

Griffey In His Prime Was The Second Coming Of Willie Mays

September 28, 2019

Tagged: , , , , , , ,



But let’s say we give in and run the same exercise without giving extra weight to the most thrilling years of Griffey’s career. In that case, we find Roger Maris, whose single-season home-run record Griffey flirted with in 1994 before labor strife brought the season to an abrupt halt. This is a telling comparison. Over their respective careers, Mays and Maris boasted nearly identical marks in power, contact and plate patience, but they differed greatly in the most dynamic areas of the game: speed and defense.Likewise, late-career Griffey retained much of his familiar hitting profile, but he became unrecognizable in the field and on the basepaths. After stealing 167 bases in the first 11 years of his career, Griffey swiped only 17 over his final 11 seasons. He also joined the likes of Adam Dunn and Manny Ramirez as one of baseball’s least valuable fielders over his final major-league decade, an outcome that seemed unthinkable when Junior was pulling fly balls off the wall at a dead sprint and doing his “I got it” routine across the Great Lakes. The effect is so extreme that if we invert the prime-weighting scheme from above, instead giving excess weight to a player’s worst seasons, Griffey suddenly profiles like a lumbering slugger in the mold of Kevin Mitchell or Prince Fielder — a far cry from the sprightliness of his ’90s heyday.But here’s the thing: While Kevin Mitchell and Prince Fielder were and are, uh, hefty, they’re also pretty good players. Among non-pitchers since 19133The earliest season, continuous from 2015, for which FanGraphs tracks strikeout rate for batters. with 3,000 or more career trips to the plate, each ranks in the top third in WAR on a per-plate appearance basis. His skills may have been undermined by constant injuries, an ill-fated contract and geriatric napping, but even in winter, one of Griffey’s closest comps was a 31-year-old six-time All-Star.There are many faces to Griffey’s stardom. He might have been baseball’s last truly mainstream superstar, which takes on even more meaning in a sport with an ever-dwindling base of African-American players. The iconography of Griffey — the fun-loving, video game-endorsing, steroid-free natural athlete — always meant his case for the Hall rested on more than mere numbers. But as we all celebrate Griffey’s career this week, it’s worth remembering that Griffey’s numbers are no mere thing, and his statistical legacy isn’t so fragile as to topple over at the first gust of scrutiny. Even during his worst days, Griffey remained an All-Star-caliber player; during his best, he really was the second coming of Willie Mays.Read More: Mike Piazza Was More Than A Big BatBaseball’s Hall Of Fame Is Stuck In The ’60s One hundred percent of public ballots have Ken Griffey Jr. going into the Baseball Hall of Fame, which should surprise exactly no one. The only suspense Junior’s election year was ever going to see was the question of how close he comes to unanimity, and whether or not the Baseball Writers’ Association of America conscripts an ordained bishop and a team of surveyors to find and consecrate center field at the site of the old Kingdome.It’s been a while since a position player of Griffey’s caliber went into Hall of Fame Day so certain of induction — Rickey Henderson in 2009 was probably the last — and a lot of the ink that’s been spilled over Griffey focuses on the more ethereal qualities that made him the face of a generation (a generation starving for Hall of Fame consideration, I might add): his style; his athleticism; that grin; that effortless, fluid, magisterial swing.If hall voters could vote in a GIF, I swear to God this thing would have a plaque by the second ballot.Statistically, though, Griffey isn’t talked about in exactly the same way as most players. His artistry was so unimpeachable, his heights so dizzying, and his fall so precipitous, it seemed, that talking about the full measure of his career in the persnickety, CPA-hued style of the modern baseball apparatus not only feels like stapling together two completely different players — The Kid and a mere, fallible mortal — but also carries a certain inevitable, Nearer, My God, to Thee sadness about the career he might have had.This is a mistake. The mystique of Ken Griffey Jr. doesn’t diminish any when held up to the lamp. If anything, panning reality out of myth only seems to grow the myth.Consider: If we break down Griffey’s skills1Adjusted for park effects. relative to the major league average — giving excess weight to his best wins above replacement seasons, to better capture what he was like in his prime — and look for players with similar profiles in their best years,2Generating similarity scores by summing the squared differences of any two players’ percentile ranks in five skill categories — contact rate, isolated power, walk rate, running ability (which includes speed score and baserunning runs) and defensive WAR — and weighting the differences according to each category’s influence on overall WAR. the prime version of Griffey was the closest thing the majors have ever seen to the great Willie Mays. Mays had a slightly better eye at the plate, made more contact and was a better runner. Otherwise, peak Griffey was the spitting image of the Say Hey Kid’s best years: a profanely powerful hitter and elite defensive outfielder with great speed and patience, and solid contact skills.(Griffey’s second-most similar prime-to-prime player was his former Mariners teammate Alex Rodriguez — no slouch in his best years, either.) read more


Commentary Say what Coach Fickell needs to mind his mouth

September 28, 2019

We’re all aware of Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee’s propensity for regrettable one-liner remarks, but first-year OSU head football coach Luke Fickell unleashed a howler of his own during a Tuesday press conference. “We hope we get better,” Fickell said during his first visit with the media since the Buckeyes’ 24-6 loss at Miami. Is that so, coach? You “hope” your team gets better? President Gee couldn’t have said it better himself. Fickell’s remark strikes me as troubling because any coach on any football team, especially a first-year coach attempting to uphold 122 years of Buckeyes football tradition, needs to be proactive in improving their team, not hoping. What the Buckeyes need right now is a clear plan and discernible end in mind, especially with regard to the team’s dilemma at the quarterback position. Fickell said that while the media may tend to focus on quarterback play, he focuses on every facet of his team. “It’s focused on the quarterbacks, but we’ve got to do a better job all-in-all,” he said. “Whether it’s offensively or defensively… we’ve got to find a way to get our best 11 on the field.” Whew. That’s more like it from the Buckeyes’ head coach. He’s talking about improving the team and finding the pieces to the puzzle that will help the team succeed. But wait! Fickell produced another gaff as his press conference ended while explaining why he didn’t use a timeout during a fourth-quarter Miami drive that lasted 8:48 and bled the game clock down to less than one minute. “It ultimately didn’t end up hurting us,” Fickell said. What do you mean it didn’t hurt the team, coach? You didn’t utilize your timeouts, a valuable tool at your disposal, which, aside from stopping the clock earlier in Miami’s drive, could have served the Buckeyes in several ways. At the very least, you could have given your defense a breather since that particular Hurricanes’ drive lasted for the better part of ten minutes. Only a select group of people gets to see the team at every practice and team function, so I, along with all of Buckeye Nation, must give Fickell the benefit of the doubt when it comes to helping the Buckeyes improve. Fickell needs to do a little better than hoping his team will improve, as well as kidding himself that his team wouldn’t have benefitted from the use of a timeout at some point in the fourth quarter against Miami. With that attitude, Fickell could be hoping for a new job at another program in the near future. read more


Greece adopts bill to cut 15000 civil servant jobs

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Greek parliament voted to adopt a law providing for the dismissal of 15,000 civil servants as part of austerity measures imposed by the country’s international creditors.After heated debate during an emergency session, 168 deputies voted for the bill, with 123 voting against and one abstaining as the opposition proved powerless to stop cuts the government insisted were needed to keep the country afloat.The new law overturns what had been a guarantee of a job for life for workers in Greece’s notoriously bloated civil service. Around 800 people turned up outside the parliament to protest against the measure in a demonstration called by trade unions. The bill provides for the dismissal of 15,000 civil servants by the end of 2014, including 4,000 this year, to meet terms set by Athens’s creditors for billions in bailout loans.Civil service trade confederation ADEDY condemned what it called the “politicians who are dismantling the public service and destroying the welfare state”.Private union GSEE said the bill would only worsen Greece’s dire unemployment rate, which currently stands at 27 per cent. Slashing an unwieldy public service is a condition set by Greece’s so-called ‘troika’ of creditors – the International Monetary Fund, European Union and European Central Bank – to unlock loans of 8.8 billion euros ($11.5 billion).The EU and IMF have committed a total of 240 billion euros in rescue loans since 2010, with the heavily indebted country obliged to pursue austerity measures in exchange for the international aid it needs to avoid bankruptcy.The new law will speed dismissal procedures, which previously made it impossible to sack civil servants and saw the public sector swell over the years as every new administration brought in its own people.Employees who have been disciplined for corruption or incompetence and those working for one of dozens of shuttered government agencies will be the main targets.The law, which was written in a single article to force lawmakers to adopt all its provisions together, also extends weekly working hours for teachers, opens a number of professions to competition and reduces a controversial property tax by 15 per cent.Another section creates new payment terms for unpaid taxes, intended to help the government recover billions of euros owed by indebted companies and households.The main opposition, radical leftist party Syriza, tried unsuccessfully to block the use of an emergency session to adopt the law, which it argued was unconstitutional.Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras said the emergency session was necessary because his eurozone counterparts “must come to a decision Monday on continuing loan disbursements… that Greece needs to pay salaries and pensions”.Opposition parties also condemned what they said was a last-minute amendment introduced by Stournaras, slashing the monthly minimum salary from 580 euros to 490 euros.last_img read more

Express reportsLondon:Kevin Anderson became the first South African man in 97 years to reach the Wimbledon final on Friday after downing John Isner in the second longest Grand Slam singles match ever played The 32-year-old Anderson triumphed 7-6 (6) 6-7 (5) 6-7 (9) 6-4 26-24 after six hours and 36 minutes on Centre Court Kevin Anderson shakes hands after winning against John Isnerin the semi-final AFP/Glyn Kirk Isner previously won the longest ever Grand Slam singles match against Nicolas Mahut lasting 11 hours and five minutes over three days in the 2010 Wimbledon first round Anderson the first South African Wimbledon men’s finalist since Brian Norton in 1921 faces Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal in Sunday’s showpiece It was the longest semi-final ever played at Wimbledon surpassing the four hours 44 minutes it took Djokovic to beat Juan Martin del Potro in 2013 It was also the second longest match at a Slam beating the six hours and 33 minutes which Fabrice Santoro spent seeing off Arnaud Clement in the 2004 French Open "I don’t really know what to say right now playing like that in those conditions was really tough for the both of us" said eighth seed Anderson "It feels like it’s a draw but somebody has to win John’s a great guy I really feel for him "I don’t know how you can take it playing for so long and coming out the wrong side "I apologise if I’m not more excited right now At the end you don’t even feel that great out there but at the same time I’m through to the final" Anderson finished with 49 aces and 118 winners; Isner had 53 aces and 129 winners "It just seems cruel and unusual punishment for these guys" former champion John McEnroe said on the BBC as he commentated on the match The marathon tie meant that the Nadal v Djokovic semi-final was played under the roof as the light began to fade just after 8 pm After beating eight-time champion Roger Federer also over five sets in the quarter-finals 2017 US Open runner-up Anderson claimed his 300th career win Anderson will now attempt to overturn a losing record against both Nadal (5-0) and Djokovic (5-1) For the first time in the Open era the semi-finals were made up exclusively of players over 30 Anderson saved three break points in the third game of the first set before Isner had to save a set point in the 10th That service hold — helped by a 129 mph (2076km/h) second serve — took the American to 100 service games unbroken at this Wimbledon However Isner was then unable to convert a set point of his own in the tiebreak before 32-year-old Anderson wrapped it up thanks to a netted return The 33-year-old American’s composure wasn’t helped by a delay caused by a ball boy slipping and falling Isner then shrugged off needing treatment on a blistered serving hand found time to usher a ladybird to safety before levelling the match in another tiebreak off his 19th ace Anderson broke through for a 5-3 lead in the third set ending Isner’s run of serving invincibility at this year’s Wimbledon at 110 games He couldn’t capitalise however and was broken straight back before Isner claimed the ensuing tiebreak having saved two set points It was a similar tale in the fourth set where the South African broke for 3-2 only to hand the break straight back But this time he dug deep to break again in the ninth game on his way to levelling the semi-final at two sets apiece Anderson had break points in the 15th 21st and 35th games of the decider before taking victory when a weary Isner hit long Google’s self-driving cars have already driven more than one million miles But the company has yet to show how the vehicles might signal complex actions to other drivers and pedestrians Now a recently granted patent may provide some additional insight The patent which was published on Nov 24 after initially being filed in Sept 2012 describes a system in which self-driving cars would be able to display messages to pedestrians at areas such as crosswalks These alerts could include anything from an electronic sign to lights audio notifications or even a robotic hand to provide waving gestures The images included in the document provide some idea of what these signals might look like One sign for example shows a pedestrian symbol with a slash through it to indicate that it’s not safe to cross the street Another concept shows a stop sign displayed on the side of the car Google acknowledges that the ability to communicate with pedestrians is an area where self-driving cars are lacking compared to standard vehicles “However other than signaling devices typical to non-autonomous vehicles such as turn signals head lights high beams brake lights reverse lights and some audible signals (horns reverse light beepers etc) autonomous vehicles lack the capability to directly communicate the vehicle’s future behavior” the document states “Simply stopping a vehicle without these driver-initiated signals may not be sufficiently reassuring to the pedestrian that it is indeed safe to cross” The patent was granted as Google and other companies begin to reveal more about their plans for the future of autonomous vehicles Automakers from Tesla to Volvo and Mercedes-Benz have announced ambitious production plans for instance And Formula E recently announced that it’s working with a company called Kinetik to create the world’s first driverless car racing

everyday reality Contact us at editors@timecomGangneung: Former world anti-doping chief Dick Pound slammed the Olympic response to the Russian doping scandal on Tuesday warning "we talk more than we walk" and saying that the Games’ credibility had taken a serious hit Pound was speaking at an International Olympic Committee (IOC) session in Gangneung South Korea three days before the Pyeongchang Winter Games which have been engulfed in complications from Russia’s drugs conspiracy Pound’s tough comments prompted a complaint from the floor that he talks too much to the press a jibe which in turn triggered a furious response from the Canadian File photo of former WADA president Dick Pound Reuters The IOC has formally banned Russia from Pyeongchang but has allowed 168 "clean" athletes to take part under a neutral flag and may still allow the Russian flag at the closing ceremony Russia’s suspension follows a highly orchestrated plot culminating during its hosting of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics where tainted samples were switched through a hole in the anti-doping laboratory’s wall "I believe that in the collective mind in a significant portion of the world and among the athletes of the world that the IOC has not only failed to protect clean athletes but has made it possible for cheating athletes to prevail against the clean athletes" said Pound "We talk more than we walk "The athletes and the public at large in my view no longer have confidence that their interests are being protected Our commitment to both is in serious doubt and with respect I don’t think we can talk our way out of this problem" However it appeared to be an unpopular opinion from Pound who along with Britain’s Adam Pengilly was the only delegate to abstain from an otherwise unanimous vote of confidence in the IOC’s handling of the Russian suspension ‘Flagrant attack’ Pound said Russia’s ban could be lifted without it acknowledging its conduct or even committing to stopping it He said the IOC had also failed to protect the whistleblowers who brought the scandal to light "They’ve been left out there hanging alone with no protection whatsoever from the Olympic movement" said Pound adding: "I would say more attention has been paid to getting Russian athletes into the Pyeongchang Games than dealing with the Russian conduct" "I’m sorry but that is not an appropriate response by the IOC to a flagrant attack on the Olympic Games and on clean athletes by Russia" he said Pound the ex-president of the World Anti-Doping Agency also criticised the "perverse" judgments of the Court of Arbitration for Sport which last week reversed life Olympic bans on 28 Russian athletes and staff After 15 of the Russians applied to take part in Pyeongchang the IOC refused to give them invitations But on Tuesday CAS told AFP that 32 Russians would launch a fresh appeal to compete including the highly decorated Korean-Russian speed skater Victor An "We are in trouble now" said Pound referring to the IOC "We need to make it clear to the world that our decisions and actions are based on principles that distinguish the Olympic movement from entertainment sports "We’re not talking

PNAS Scientific misconduct and not honest mistakes account for more than two-thirds of retractions a paper published today online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) suggests The authors microbiologists and journal editors Arturo Casadevall and Ferric Fang set out to classify the errors that prompt researchers to yank published work—and came up with what they say is a surprising result Casadevall and Fang who are fascinated by scientific integrity in publication wanted to follow up on work published last year Medical writer R Grant Steen had reported in the Journal of Medical Ethics that 735% of 742 papers retracted between 2000 and 2010 were pulled because of errors "What I was interested in was to see if we could understand the sources of error" says Casadevall who runs a lab at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx New York and is editor-in-chief of mBio That way he and Fang thought "we may find a way to improve science" by giving researchers a heads up about where the most common pitfalls lie They asked Steen to join them and together searched PubMed for all retractions coming up with a total of 2047 dating back to 1977 (PubMed primarily covers biomedical research) Rather than rely just on retraction notices from journals — which in some cases they couldn’t access without paying a fee Casadevall says—they cross-referenced as many retractions as they could with other sources including reports from the US Office of Research Integrity (ORI) which investigates scientific misconduct As it turned out the wording in retraction notices which are generally written by authors was often misleading In a supplementary table the authors detail 158 retractions that they reclassified For example the retraction notice for a 2005 paper in The Journal of Cell Biology said that "follow-up experiments … have shown that … Figure 1 is not correct" As it turned out ORI had investigated the case and concluded that the first author had "knowingly and intentionally falsified data" In all about 67% of the more than 2000 papers were retracted because of misconduct which included fraud and plagiarism Just over one-fifth were retracted because of mistakes and the rest were pulled for unknown or other reasons Science has the dubious distinction of being ranked first for the number of articles retracted 70 just edging out PNAS which comes second with 69 Thirty-two of Science’s retractions were due to fraud or suspected fraud and 37 to error These days "the value of the work is determined by where it is published" Casadevall says Last year he and Fang devised a "retraction index" to show that journals with relatively high impact factors such as Science Nature and Cell had a higher rate of retractions Although retractions are on the rise they remain relatively rare in science Well under 01% of papers in PubMed have been retracted the study found;
