This is how scientific structure will be revolutionized
Two decades ago a functionally anomalous science began. The fundamentally compromised 'science of consciousness' is unique in actually being the science of scientists. In recognizing and documenting this unusual problem, its solution becomes clear. Scientific behavior itself is at a developmental cusp that will see science transform to 'Dual-Aspect' after centuries in its juvenile 'Single-Aspect' form. Only then will the anomaly be gone and a true science of consciousness be possible. Only then will we scientists understand ourselves and how we do science.

When grassroots activism becomes a commodity
In a new book UCLA sociologist Edward T. Walker pulls back the curtain on the lucrative industry of consultants who mobilize public activism as a marketable service, and who at times use covert 'astroturf' strategies that give the false impression of a mass movement. Corporations and trade groups use the approach to fight unwelcome legislation or regulation, to respond to the challenges of a controversy or to counter public opposition to their practices or products.
