owncloud 9.0.2 destroyed

Again, the recent own cloud 8 -> 9 updates remained difficult. Modifying the database helped:

update oc_appconfig set configvalue = 'dav/appinfo/v1/webdav.php' where appid = 'core' and configkey = 'remote_files';
update oc_appconfig set configvalue = 'dav/appinfo/v1/webdav.php' where appid = 'core' and configkey = 'remote_webdav';
update oc_appconfig set configvalue = 'dav/appinfo/v1/caldav.php' where appid = 'core' and configkey = 'remote_calendar';
update oc_appconfig set configvalue = 'dav/appinfo/v1/caldav.php' where appid = 'core' and configkey = 'remote_caldav';
update oc_appconfig set configvalue = 'dav/appinfo/v1/carddav.php' where appid = 'core' and configkey = 'remote_contacts';
update oc_appconfig set configvalue = 'dav/appinfo/v1/carddav.php' where appid = 'core' and configkey = 'remote_carddav';
update oc_appconfig set configvalue = 'dav/appinfo/v1/carddav.php' where appid = 'core' and configkey = 'remote_contactsplus';

But only to discover that the new calendar entries were corrupt as found by others

/* show old calendars and count */
SELECT o.calendarid, c.userid, c.displayname, c.uri, COUNT(o.calendarid)
FROM oc_clndr_objects o
JOIN oc_clndr_calendars c ON o.calendarid = c.id
GROUP BY calendarid
ORDER BY c.userid, c.displayname;
/* show new calendars and count */
SELECT o.calendarid, c.principaluri, c.displayname, c.uri, COUNT(o.calendarid)
FROM oc_calendarobjects o
JOIN oc_calendars c ON o.calendarid = c.id
GROUP BY calendarid
ORDER BY c.principaluri, c.displayname;

Maybe I give up on own cloud now.

Medical error is third biggest cause of death in the US

so I am not the only one saying that, her eis the link to the BMJ article

A literature review by James estimated preventable adverse events using a weighted analysis and described an incidence range of 210 000-400 000 deaths a year associated with medical errors among hospital patients.16 We calculated a mean rate of death from medical error of 251 454 a year using the studies reported since the 1999 IOM report and extrapolating to the total number of US hospital admissions in 2013. We believe this understates the true incidence of death due to medical error because the studies cited rely on errors extractable in documented health records and include only inpatient deaths.

Irreproducibility, once more

Francis Collins wrote in a commentary

A growing chorus of concern, from scientists and laypeople, contends that the complex system for ensuring the reproducibility of biomedical research is failing and is in need of restructuring. As leaders of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), we share this concern and here explore some of the significant interventions that we are planning.
Science has long been regarded as ‘self-correcting’, given that it is founded on the replication of earlier work. Over the long term, that principle remains true. In the shorter term, however, the checks and balances that once ensured scientific fidelity have been hobbled. This has compromised the ability of today’s researchers to reproduce others’ findings.
Let’s be clear: with rare exceptions, we have no evidence to suggest that irreproducibility is caused by scientific misconduct. In 2011, the Office of Research Integrity of the US Department of Health and Human Services pursued only 12 such cases3. Even if this represents only a fraction of the actual problem, fraudulent papers are vastly outnumbered by the hundreds of thousands published each year in good faith.

I agree, that a major part of current research output is not reproduced anymore.

Furthermore,  there are doubts that science is self-correcting anymore even on the long-term run. Who will ever assemble 500K GWAS data 50.000 asthma patients and another 50.000 controls? Sharing data is the only solution to discover any false claims. Unfortunately, I could even not even get within an EU FP 5 project the genotype data from my own probands.

And let’s be clear: was is scientific misconduct? Just fraud or the long slippery slope?

According to the FDAAA, failure to comply with its provisions may result in civil penalties of as much as $10 000 per day.

Maybe the EU should implement a similar policy like the FDAAA??
