The University of Liverpool in UK is about to sack 47 biomedical scientists, unions and students are protesting, but apparently in vain. According to my information, the senior official tasked with evaluating the academic employees and drawing up the redundancy list for the mass-sackings is Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research & Impact Anthony Hollander, professor of stem cell biology. Hollander arrived at this high-ranking position at Liverpool thanks to his most cited paper:

Here we will mostly tell you about crime stories starting with mafia

Corruption can either be a hidden problem or an open problem.

If it is an open problem we define it to be a result of a society dominated by mafia.

Nordic countries mostly suffer from hidden corruption which is much harder to proof it exists.

The current disaster in sweden where "moms" has been manipulated and stolen is an example of hidden corruption which in this case has been done mostly from outside sweden

In 1949 Nobel prize was given to lobotomy! Today we know no prize should have ever been given to lobotomy and anybody who does lobotomy should be put in jail. The question is why does Nobel Committee not act like the rest of a society that tries to correct an error that has been done? Statues of slave owners are being taken down why does nobel committee not retract the wrong nobel prizes and postumt give nobel prize to the one that actually should have got it? Another question is does nobel prize have any value since the nobel committe has promoted crimes against humanity such as eugenics and lobotomy?

Statoil ASA, an international oil company headquartered in Norway and majority-owned by the Government of Norway, has agreed to pay a total of $21 million to settle criminal and administrative charges for violating the anti-bribery and books-and-records provisions of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”). Statoil, which was subject to U.S. jurisdiction in this case because it is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, acknowledged paying bribes to an Iranian official in order to secure oil and gas rights in Iran. Pursuant to the terms of a deferred prosecution agreement, Statoil agreed to a penalty of $10.5 million.
