Taleyarkhan cleared of misconduct charges by Purdue panel
IPBiz had noted in March 2006: The interesting thing about this flap is that it has been triggered by a story by a free lance reporter who published in Nature.
In the same time period, the same reporter (Eugenie Samuel Reich) also suggested improprieties by then-Caltech president (and Nobel Laureate) David Baltimore. In the subsequent year, nothing further has been said about the possible improprieties involving patents.
In December 2006, Reich had an article in the Boston Globe concerning bad acts by Oak Ridge workers Pennycook and Varela.
As a separate, but not unrelated, point, this author (LBE) criticized inaccurate statements by a different reporter (Eli Kintisch) in the journal Science, and published this criticism in 88 JPTOS 743.
