Like almost everyone else in the Trump administration, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been caught once again doing the exact opposite of “draining the swamp.”

A New York Times investigation published Sunday found that members of an investigative team at the Education Department created during the Obama administration to police fraudulent activity by for–profit colleges have been “

How do you spot—and then stop—scientific fraud?

How do you spot—and then stop—scientific fraud? Simple, you just follow the math. Nautilus has a piece on how the researcher with the most retractions ever (183!) was finally caught. The story not only includes plenty of sick science burns, it also details a statistics-based procedure to catch future frauds.

The PayPal Scam

This is not about scams from other accounts that we commonly heard, such as craigslist or Nigerian princes. This was discovered by me and my friend recently on how PayPal scammed money off of the receiver with a sneaky little change on their recently re-designed site.

I will start by giving you some context: I have been paying rent through PayPal to my friends since January...

Time Person of the Year snub and Fyre Festival promoter Billy McFarland could be called a people-pleaser: Sometime before or after last April’s disastrous island getaway , which offered shantytown tents, cheese and bread for dinner, and zero all-star performances for the rich and Instagram famous, he bought Blink-182 a fucking $160,000 yacht.

The New York Post obtained documents revealing...

Fyre Festival Boy Pleads Guilty, Might Be Headed to Prison

Looks like the law caught up with Billy McFarland, founder of the notoriously disastrous “luxury” Frye Festival . On Wednesday, McFarland plead guilty to 80 charges of fraud—interesting because in October of last year, the large adult son plead not guilty . Hmmm.

As you probably recall, Fyre Fest was scheduled for April 2017 in the Bahamas, but was cancelled when it descended into total chaos...

Well, I guess there’s only so much money to be made in pop-punk. Former Ataris bassist Michael Davenport, who played with the band from 1998 to 2005 (rejoining for reunion shows in 2013 and 2014), was indicted last month on federal conspiracy and fraud charges, as the Santa Barbara Independent first reported. Davenport, along with fellow California resident Cynthia Rawlinson, operated a...

Here Is the $13 Billion Federal Case Against JPMorgan That Jamie Dimon Doesn’t Want You to See

President Barack Obama was swept into office in the wake of an unprecedented financial collapse initiated by unscrupulous banks, but his Department of Justice did precious little to actually punish the executives behind it. Obama’s federal prosecutors made almost no attempts to hold anyone criminally responsible, and they settled civil cases quietly, without the unpleasantness and...

I bought a G37 centre console with the navigation system, the screen, A/C vents, all the stuff in the centre console.

However, this was not...
