I point out the way

e received the following response to magnets for sale story “Dealing with Deception”, by Beryl Benderly:

You may be interested to know that I discussed this issue rather extensively in my recent book, Experimental Design for Biologists.

In the book, I point out the way “hypothesis testing” is currently practiced, which surprisingly often results in experiments designed to validate rather than falsify pre-existing hypotheses, and which can therefore result in the sort of deception you write about. Interestingly, the deception may be inadvertent, and a function of the scientist using the hypothesis to filter data as “positive” or “negative”, focusing Neodymium on the positive data as “relevant”.

I propose asking questions as an alternative to hypotheses, because questions first force the scientist to admit that he or she does not know the answer in advance, and second allows for different types of results to be scored as “positive,” or “relevant.”

You therefore might consider the more difficult cases, where the deception is not a function of someone being purposefully dishonest, Magnetic toys rather an instance of an overly naive or hopeful scientist practicing poor experimental design. These instances are those which can be dealt with using education and training. It is much harder to solve the cases where people set out to deceive.

Electronic grant applications: Mac support for PureEdge viewers

As noted in magnets for sale recent article on NIH’s electronic grant applications, if you use a non-Window’s system, like Apple Macintosh computers, you can’t use the normal viewer/forms completion software, called PureEdge. If you use a Mac, Grants.gov, the government’s grant-funding portal offers Neodymium bar magnets workarounds. The sponsored research office at Harvard Medical School (HMS) has put together a handy, step-by-step instruction guide on PureEdge for Mac users, including screen shots, and is available from the HMS Web site (PDF document).
