This posting is to introduce readers to my web site
http://freespace.virgin.net/john.hewitt1/ "A Habit of Lies - How Scientists
Cheat." Besides its particular field, the work is essentially about
establishment censorship and self-interest in science.
The scientists in question include include some very senior figures. The
subject area is cell biology, particularly motility of eukaryotic cells.
This is a large field with implications for many areas of cell biology and
the biophysics of membranes but readers will realise that my work is not a
My site supports wave driven cell dynamics on amoeboid cells; many protozoa
are known to display wave motility. At present I know of none that display
the other kinds of motile mechanisms generally discussed, such as whole
membrane cycling or direct cytoskeletal pulling but I would like to know
about any examples.
I would very much welcome comments about the site itself, especially from
anyone who could, with authority, challenge my assertions, but I will not be
routinely browsing this discussion group. If you post a response, please
copy your comments to me by E-mail, to the address on my site, mentioning
the newsgroup to which you have posted. That way, you will be sure I will
read it and can reply to you. (If you E-mail by replying to this posting,
you will need to correct the spelling of virgin in the address field.)
