カーリングでストーンを投げることをスイーピングというのだそうですが

スイーピングは、息を止め、全体重をブラシに預ける力業。数十秒間潜水するような無酸素運動に近い

なのだそうです。

誰かにとても似ていると思うのですが怖くて名前をここに書けません

A Murder Suspect’s Worth to Science

犯人の科学者としての能力に踏み込んだ考察になっています。

“Perhaps the saying ‘There’s a fine line between genius and insanity’ has a lot of truth to it,”

というのような反応が当初あったのですが結局

In fact, scientists who have looked at Dr. Bishop’s résumé said they saw no evidence of genius, no evidence of a cure for diseases like A.L.S., no evidence that she even could have gotten tenure at a major university.

こんな話になってきて

Dr. Bishop’s work, “I don’t think it was groundbreaking — quite the opposite.”

とか

She had nothing published in 2007 and 2008, and during her six years at the university in Huntsville she published three papers that appeared to be original research articles, none of them in major journals — often a requirement for tenure.

とか

that in Dr. Bishop’s published papers, her name did not appear in the last position, which ordinarily designates the senior author.

とかとも言われてしまう始末。
最後には

Joanathan D. Moreno, a professor of medical ethics and the history and sociology of science at the University of Pennsylvania, thinks reactions have to do with a long tradition that goes back to Plato. The idea, he said, is that someone who is very intelligent is assumed to be “morally wise.” And that makes it hard to reconcile the actions of Amy Bishop, with her Harvard Ph.D., her mantle of scientific brilliance.

こんな話で終わります。

大学の先生の皆が皆“morally wise.”とは到底言えませんよね。”サボったり”、”ウソ”ついたりする人はいますよ。身近にいると困りますけど。
