What bias you saw in his hypothesis? I only see a difference in his hypothesis, not the superiority.
Astounding how much pull/power one individual (Amie Wilkinson) can wield over an entire academic area.
That makes me sad - science people being afraid of SJWs.
Sigh... Astounding how folks take the complaints as fact then construct an entire fantasy about that one person and their *political enemies and what they control.
Statement addressing unfounded allegations.
This statement addresses some unfounded allegations about my personal involvement with the publishing of Ted Hill's preprint "An evolutionary theory for the variability hypothesis" (and the earlier version of this paper co-authored with Sergei Tabachnikov). As a number of erroneous statements have been made, I think it's important to state formally what transpired and my beliefs overall about academic freedom and integrity.
I first saw the publicly-available paper of Hill and Tabachnikov on 9/6/17, listed to appear in The Mathematical Intelligencer. While the original link has been taken down, the version of the paper that was publicly available on the arxiv at that time is here.
I sent an email, on 9/7/17, to the Editor-in-Chief of The Mathematical Intelligencer, about the paper of Hill and Tabachnikov. In it, I criticized the scientific merits of the paper and the decision to accept it for publication, but I never made the suggestion that the decision to publish it be reversed. Instead, I suggested that the journal publish a response rebuttal article by experts in the field to accompany the article. One day later, on 9/8/17, the editor wrote to me that she had decided not to publish the paper.
I had no involvement in any editorial decisions concerning Hill's revised version of this paper in The New York Journal of Mathematics. Any indications or commentary otherwise are completely unfounded.
I would like to make clear my own views on academic freedom and the integrity of the editorial process. I believe that discussion of scientific merits of research should never be stifled. This is consistent with my original suggestion to bring in outside experts to rebut the Hill-Tabachnikov paper. Invoking purely mathematical arguments to explain scientific phenomena without serious engagement with science and data is an offense against both mathematics and science.

police were dispatched to the 200 block of Northeast Nowhere Avenue where a woman was allegedly using drugs on a sidewalk. The drug was potent enough that the caller reported a burning sensation in the eyes.
I was too late to get the number for her dealer....
Mustard gas back in fashion?
I do wonder what it's actually supposed to mean though in some cases but there's so many examples both intended and unintended ha ha.
https://www.boredpanda.com/food-name-fails/ Some of them are actual food names though or other product names and others well who knows how some of these got translated really.
EDIT: And of course everyone's favorite bootleg or knockoff, or just a copy.
Some of them work, some of the well, you probably want to avoid them.
(Though I suppose for Cola here or Pepper in this case it's not that unusual although I didn't know the Doc had that many variants and there's probably more still.)
EDIT: For which I think there's a fair number of Tweet accounts just for products like that.
Though that sort of thing is everywhere I suppose.
It can be that this is not a typo, though...
So that`s how Win8 was made
Made my day!
EDIT: Had to add this. Anybody uses Discord? :
Their changelog is funny as well.
