the physicist complained to the media about first year students cheating on first year bio-physics.

some people painstakingly did what needed to be done to collect proof. to call them out. and the university chose not to punish them.

chose to... select them to study medicine. etc. you know how it is. how that goes. part of the whole selecting the worst of the psychopaths.


maybe by way of silencing?? they gave him a research programme. a modelling one.

in my 1 year thesis of 2018 i wrote about how the thing about mathematical models is that you can fiddle with the starting assumptions or whatever until you get the output from the model that you want. in ways that are... confirmation bias... academically not reputable...

anyway... the government thought that in the interests of appearing to be science-led in making decisions about lock-downs in the face of no community transmission they would hire this physicist who was complaining about cheating for medicine entry to make them up models to justify the lockdowns by plugging in whatever needed to be plugged in to make them seem to be science led.

and so he got mentions and photos in the media... television coverage... new york times... quite the picture of jacinda ardern being science-led by a physicist who we got doing epidemeology modelling (because nobody who majored in epidemiology would be capable of doing it, of course).

and it shut him up about the cheating for medical entry and i suppose it got him out of teaching the psychopathic morons so that's a win-win -- right?


some people aren't very happy about things these academics have been saying to the media. and of course the way the media grabs on to their views is to make them polarizing. something something about threats to their personal safety. i suppose it started with sort of horrible comments about the person. people saying she should shut up because she's fat and so on... because people are just getting sick to f*ck*ng death of this 1 person who presents as the only microbiologist that new zealand will have on payroll speaking the only things that the government or the university or whatever will approve to be the party line... or whatever...

then, of course, whatever she does in her personal life / on her personal time is up for media attention... indications of hypocracy (breaking covid restriction regulations) and the like... in an attempt to discredit...


she said it would cost her $20,000 to get a publication. that that's what the science journals (internationally) charge to process a publication from her...

i suppose it is because they have to hire a post-doc or similar to check all the work... to see if they actually get the results she claimed to have got...

because it's just not very credible or plausible. our findings. not once you take a troll through turnitin etc etc and see what sorts or kinds of things they require of the studnets in the labs. you go... these practices are being taught... are being required... are going on...

we don't have academic journals.

we don't have academic conferences.

we don't have academic talks / speakers / question time.

we don't have academics.

we don't have academic freedom.

spouting the major political party's line or the university's line to the media is not academic freedom.

the academic freedom is supposed to be about academic work. academic work that is subject to scruitiny from peers.

who are the peers?

they seemed to want academic leaders to be community leaders. the peers were not other academic leaders.. . they were supposed to spout party line to underlings. studnets or children or people treated as stupid childen who would comply with directive and lap everything up like absorbent sponges...

there is no dialogue or debate. academic dialogue or debate. there is no peer review.

people are not given the academic freedom to engage in academics. there are no academics, here. there are no academics.

they will not pay them.

they keep people as slaves... and they only pay people to be lackeys.

where is my credit for my 1 year of research that i completed in 2018?

i wrote it for external examiners so it could be externally examined by international standards of scholarship and the university refused to get it to external examiners, repeatedly, because working to internationally accepted standards of scholarship was not something that was acceptable to the new zealand university.
