Batalla de Éparges o Combres. Sucesivos ataques y contraataques.

Desde el final de la Batalla del Marne, el frente en la región del río Mosa y el norte de Lorena se había estabilizado, luego que los alemanes lograron crear un saliente en los alrededores de Saint Mihiel, ocuparan gran parte de la llanura de Woëvre y además de cortar la línea ferroviaria entre Verdún y Commercy, continuando así,…

Are young scientists more innovative than their senior colleagues?

Conventional wisdom says that scientists are most creative with their ideas when they are young. Darwin and Planck both claimed that young researchers were more responsive to new ideas than older colleagues, and funders like the US National Institute of Health now have policies that specifically support young scientists.

But how valid is this claim? Economists Mikko Packmen and Jay Bhattacharya decided to investigate this idea by taking a look at the most innovative articles from 1946 to 2011 and the career ages of the scientists who published those articles. They found that young scientists were more innovative with their ideas than older scientists.  

In this article, Nature reached out to Paul Ginsparg, professor of physics at Cornell, who said that Packmen and Bhattacharya’s findings make sense. “In some areas of biomedical research it might take a couple of years to learn a new set of ideas and retool a lab. Hence it wouldn’t be surprising if established researchers have trouble finding the time to do so.” 

Point A. Les Eparges. West of the crest. The monument is called The Ghosts. It remembers the fallen soldiers of the 106th Infantry Regiment, for whom the bodies were never found.

A hundred years ago… 17 february 1915 : French army launched the attack on the Eparges Crest.. The massive artillery preparation stunned the german defense. The 106th Infantry Regiment managed to take control on the point A (west of the hill).

Captain's Log, Supplemental, Stardate 92595.75

Note: Unofficial Captain’s Log submitted by Cpt Talana Syreen, USS Shion, via secure encrypted link for storage aboard USS Phoenix.

We took out the defenses surrounding Gasko Station with ease, and I beamed over with my standard away team: Cmdr Kreevak for security, Cmdr Sobek for science, Dr. Desai as field medic, and Chief Vrexol’parg for engineering.

What we’ve learned here? The Tal Shiar is evil. They granted the Hirogen rights to hunt in Romulan space in exchange for a Borg sphere (which we destroyed), kidnapped these researchers’ families to force them to work on Borg tech (which we found and destroyed), and now they’re experimenting on altering the hostages with Borg tech!

I kind of want to just beam away and blast this station to pieces before this obviously terrible idea results in this system turning into a new Borg beachhead in our part of the galaxy, but we should try to rescue everyone first. I guess.
