The government-backed Riken Institute verification experiment team leader Shinichi Aizawa (right C, standing) tells journalists in Tokyo on December 19, 2014, that a so-called ground breaking study on stem cells cannot be reproducedA researcher embroiled in a fabrication scandal that has rocked Japan's scientific establishment said Friday she would resign after failing to reproduce results of what was once billed as a ground-breaking study on stem cells. Haruko Obokata said she was dismayed that new laboratory tests have not been able to repeat her experiments, which she had claimed showed the successful conversion of an adult cell into a stem cell-like state. Her resignation came as Japan's Riken Institute formally announced that so-called "STAP" cells cannot be recreated, apparently drawing a line under the controversial study. "We have conducted verification experiments but can't repeat the STAP phenomenon," team leader Shinichi Aizawa told a nationally broadcast news conference.

He says it's in “the spirit of transparency.” The almost-certain 2016 presidential candidate uses the e-mails to try to paint a picture of an absorbed state chief executive who reads and answers missives from constituents. At the beginning of the e-book, Mr. Bush talks of himself as the “e-governor” and brags that he spent upwards of 30 hours a week answering e-mails from his laptop and BlackBerry.
