From climate-sceptics to Jean Staune and from Jean Staune to Vincent Fleury and his blog, where I found that! Followed the links to: To Explain the Origin of Animal Body Plans, Here’s What May Be the Most Inadequate Proposal Yet More on the Stretched-Rubber Theory of Body Plans Pathetic CNRS guy is still pathetic! [edit] […]

@vf #233 Fleury, I know that : We’ve been watching cells move (or not move) in embryos for a long, long time. There are no vortices of cell movement centering around the navel. Period. Your model claim four counterrotating vortices centered around the navel. You failed to make your point by simply displaying them, since […]

A few days ago Dr Fleury wrote me a quite short message, with just the subject line “time is telling” and a paper attached : Who moves whom during primitive streak formation in the chick embryo, Manli Chuai and Cornelis J. Weijer, HFSP J. 2009 April; 3(2): 71–76. Published online 2009 March 31. doi: 10.2976/1.3103933. […]

Just posted this to Pharyngula at the “An ontogeny of toilet drain behavior” thread Very nice from Dr Fleury to finally inform us of what L2/R2 could be. Never late to do well. The funny thing is that he commented here but haven’t send me a message about it! That’s weird. I’m asking for evidence […]

old URL & old rule coming backOldcola

Mon, 10 Aug 2009 16:33:33 +0000

[repost] So, Vincent Fleury always unable to deal with the scientific content of his publication seek other means to shut down critics. It will be rather difficult. In the mean time, an old rule I had to install for coffee&sci and dloale is back and this time it is applied in a wide scale. Vincent […]

I had a short exchange of messages with Mark from the ToS Reports department of First of all I would like to thank Mark, not for restoring my account, but, for the clarity of his replies, which is not often the case with people I had to communicate for other issues on various blogging […]

The second anniversary of my request for help to position the four vortices Fleury claims is rapidly approaching and I was looking around for something relevant to make a celebration poster. I opened The Mechanisms Underlying Primitive Streak Formation in the Chick Embryo, by Manli Chuai and Cornelis J. Weijer1 for inspiration and of course […]

Is the surge of affluence due to the mention of ones blog even at the comments of Pharyngula. Welcome guys. Feel comfortable but be afraid, I’m the one manipulating the Master! Using noodly appendages of course.

pre-cteappv Oops 090713Oldcola

Mon, 13 Jul 2009 19:25:48 +0000

This is a pre-cteappv Oops and I start wondering how Fleury manage to find journals with so poor review process as to let go to press such mistakes. This one is from An Elasto-Plastic Model of Avian Gastrulation, Vincent Fleury, Organogenesis 2:1, 6-16, 2005. [p13, col1, §4] The extraordinary fact is that this equation is […]

4 The paleontological point of viewOldcolastripes-of-competence.jpgmsx1_dogfish_skate_chicken.gif

Sun, 12 Jul 2009 18:49:11 +0000

There is not as much paleontology as one would expect by the title of the chapter. Mostly paleontology is an excuse to further discuss developmental biology, except for subsection 4.1 4.1 Tetrapod origin If we turn to paleontology, we find a description of tetrapods appearance into three main steps. Appearance of chordates, segmentation of lateral […]
