I'm co-founder of Retraction Watch: http://retractionwatch.com. With funding
from a number of foundations, we're building a database of retractions at
retractiondatabase.org <http://retractiondatabase.org> . We need some help
entering all of the information for each retraction.  We do pay an hourly
rate. If you know anyone who might be interested, please have them contact
our researcher Alison Abritis at aabritis@xxxxxxxxx
<mailto:aabritis@xxxxxxxxx> . Thanks!

Friction, a column @SLC

"Jane Jacobs was forever taking on ambitious subjects from new directions,
marching imperturbably into all she didn't know.  She'd never understand,
she told an interviewer once, how other authors could 'stand the boredom of
just writing down everything [they] already knew.'  But she paid the price
for indulging her insatiable curiosity.  With each new book... 'I always get
scared to death.' Caught up in complexities of a new field not at first
fully apparent, 'I realize it's too deep for me, but I have to keep on with
it.'  Until she gets it." 

 - from Eyes on the Street: The Life of Jane Jacobs by Robert Kanigel;
Knopf, 2016 p. 322.
