Concerns over the privately owned Bambiraptor fossil are raised, and it is acknowledged that “professional paleontologists and commercial collectors remain strange bedfellows.” In the aftermath of a postdoc's failed attempt to sue her mentor, it is observed that “Clear rules need to be followed nationwide for conferring co-inventor status to appropriate students and postocs involved.” The issue of whether a circadian period “observed under specific experimental conditions may best be referred to as the ‘spontaneous’ frequency of the pacemaker” or whether there is an intrinsic circadian period is discussed.
