We don’t give public school teachers enough books. We don’t give teachers enough technology. We don’t give teachers enough support. To suggest that what we *do* need to provide teachers with is access to guns is egregious & irresponsible beyond words.

I’m in total awe of the extraordinary students in Florida. Like every movement for progress in our history, gun reform will take unyielding courage and endurance. But and I believe in you, we’re proud of you, and we’re behind you every step of the way.

And worth pointing out that if one cares about press coverage, obviously the "scale free fracas" is an example that pre-prints get media attention : )

Self archiving, postprint and preprint can be sorted out with this simple flowchart Then we should just get rid of the perceived prestige of publishing in specific journals, and resist funding bodies and employers who are still victims of this prestige.

Scientists should also start implementing automated testing for data. And reviewers should ask about testing- especially when authors can’t/won’t make data public.
