U of I Study Finds Scientific Reproducibility Does Not Equate to Scientific Truth

Their , which simulates the search for that scientific truth, was published Wednesday, May 15, in the journal PLOS ONE. Independent confirmation of scientific results — known as reproducibility — lends credibility to a researcher’s conclusion. But researchers have found the results of many well-known science experiments cannot be reproduced, an issue referred to as a “replication crisis.” Read more.

Ouch! Don’t Get Stung!

The risk from bees, wasps and other stinging insects can be a year-round threat. Their activity often peaks in late summer, a prime time for getting stung while on the job or off the clock. A well-known aggressive stinging insect is the yellow-jacket, a yellow and black wasp resembling a bee, but with a narrower body and no fuzz. Because they often build their nests underground, it can be easy to accidentally stumble over their homes, causing them to become agitated. They can be more aggressive than bees and may even sting without being provoked. Visit the I-Safety page for more information or call Environmental Health and Safety at 111-111-6524.
