    [–] Hundreds of extreme self-citing scientists revealed in new database Phys-Chem-Chem-Phys 1 points ago in science

    Looking at the country-by-country data, self-citation seems more common in countries with struggling academic communities: Ukraine and Russia (~36%) vs. U.S. and U.K. (~12%).

    N.B. one does not italicise 'et al' despite it being a non-English expression since it is commonly used, as in the case of 'e.g' and 'i.e.'

    Things that I unnecessarily and obsessively learnt when I was writing my PhD thesis!

    Interesting to hear your experience on it. Would you say it is like the beef version of otoro (bluefin tuna belly)? I used to be able to eat lots of beef but can't handle that much anymore. When I finally do buy some, I'll follow your advice and go for a smaller piece of the Japanese waygu!

    Indeed why not. Sous vide is super easy: put the meat in a bag, plop it in a waterbath held at a constant ideal temperature and wait. However, u/thesuperunknown may be right that sous vide may just melt the fat too much. Time to pony up and prep some in the home test-kitchen!

    The meat at Korean grocers is pretty nice and reasonably priced. I usually go to H-Mart or PAT. However, the waygu is actually a different breed of cow and the meat is supposedly melt-in-your-mouth good and doesn't taste fatty at all.

    It's near the northeast corner of the Woodbine and Steeles intersection, at the next traffic light on Steeles. There are a few shops and it is where Japanese people go grocery shopping. They even have real wasabi rhizomes and yuzu juice there too!

    [–] [Homemade] Lanzhou beef noodle Phys-Chem-Chem-Phys 1 points ago in food

    It's relatively easy to make! I have a recipe that I learnt from a Shanghainese friend of mine. The trick is to use a store-bought bouquet garni for seasoning the broth and beef.

    [–] Data from NASA's Juno orbiter and simulations by Liu et al suggest that a Uranus-sized protoplanet collided with Jupiter early on, shattering its rocky core and dispersing heavy elements into its atmosphere. Phys-Chem-Chem-Phys 3 points ago in space

    According to the paper itself, the impact may explain various internal differences between Jupiter and Saturn. But the difference in visual appearance (striped vs bland) might be because Jupiter is simply warmer and thus doesn't have as much high-altitude haze to obscure its stormy atmosphere.
