  • The public has been trained to accept as established truth any science that has gone through the gauntlet of “peer review”. And any attempt to upend, reform or even tinker with it is regarded as an apostasy. But the truth is that peer review as practiced in the 21st century biomedical research poisons science.

  • Make Anything on your iPad.

    Codify for iPad lets you create games and simulations — or just about any visual idea you have. Turn your thoughts into interactive creations that make use of iPad features like Multi-Touch and the accelerometer.

    We think Codify is the most beautiful code editor you’ll use, and it’s easy. Codify is designed to let you touch your code. Want to change a number? Just tap and drag it. How about a color, or an image? Tapping will bring up visual editors that let you choose exactly what you want.

    Codify is built on the Lua programming language. A simple, elegant language that doesn’t rely too much on symbols — a perfect match for iPad.

  • Mapping your Excel data in Google Earth and/or Google Maps offer several advantages:

    GE and GM are free and widely available on the Internet

    GE and GM are easy to use so that your data viewers will be able to concentrate on your data, not learning the mapping tool

    GE and GM users have added an extensive set of data overlays. Your users will be able to mix and match your data with that from other GE/ GM users

    Users can add their Excel based data to these mapping tools by exporting the data to Keyhole Markup Language (KML) files and viewing the KML file in the desired Google tool.

    Google Earth lets users view KML files stored on their own PC, Google Maps lets users open a KML file that is stored on an accessible web page.
