To cure the problem of funding applications of the invention in particle detection combined with inventions in Medical Imaging that can benefit saving millions of lives and reducing healthcare costs, it is necessary to eliminate the inconsistencies by implementing TRANSPARENCY in SCIENCE in the field of early cancer detection.
Please sign the PETITION
• governments of countries that are funding research with taxpayer money and the agencies that handle donations to STOP FUNDING those who deny TRANSPARENCY in SCIENCE because this leads to corruption and criminal economic gain to the detriment of the public.
• the media to INFORM the public ABOUT WHAT IS NOT RIGHT
• To governments and media and all those who desire the reduction of premature cancer deaths and cost and who care about advancements in research for the benefit of humanity, WE REQUEST support for two public workshops (see link1 and link 2) proposed at a scientific conference that will be attended by approximately 2,500 scientists from all over the world (see link).
• Furthermore, WE REQUEST TRANSPARENCY in SCIENCE in future scientific workshops that will be organized at conferences and/or in the media. Those should become public debates, recorded, live-streamed, open to everyone, as well as those who ask pertinent, legitimate questions that require inconsistencies to be addressed and resolved. This dialogue among scientists should guarantee the opportunity to ask each other questions in public rather than focus uniquely on the presentation of their own project at a conference.
Thank you for STANDING UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT
We are guests on this planet only for a few decades and cannot take with us the money we have accumulated or the positions of power achieved, used by some to take advantage of, to oppress or simply to bully others; however, we can be remembered and leave a legacy of being some or all of these: compassionate, sensible, kind, generous, loving, humanitarian, responsible, respectful, having integrity, ethical, for having shared a meal and joyful experiences with others and for standing up for what is right!
As the man in the photo at Tiananmen Square on June 5, 1989 was using legal means – by standing on the zebra crossing before the tanks – in defense of a few thousand people who died and to send a message that everyone should stand up against oppression, so Crosetto is using legal means – by asking for TRANSPARENCY in SCIENCE – in defense of millions of people who die needlessly and of billions of taxpayers who fund research and are being deceived when their money is wasted.
You can take action without risk from the comfort of your home or office
In the case of Tiananmen Square it was not possible for the majority of you watching from home to go there and support human rights, but in the case of people dying needlessly because there are those who deny transparency in science when innovations exist that if funded would save millions of lives, you can do something about it at no risk from the comfort of your home or office. (See the two paragraphs below for actions you can take).
What action can you take action against oppression, in defense of needless deaths, suffering and wasted tax money?
Write to the leaders and/or organizations and media that you trust asking them to pressure these leaders who are obstructing advancement in science, denying transparency in science, and ignoring evidence, to resign if they do not want to address and fix these problems. (The leaders you trust might be on the list provided at this link; if not, please forward their names and contacts to: leaders_organizations_I_trust@UnitedToEndCancer.org so they can be added to our list. In either case, please send a copy of your email to the address above to be published, so your voice and those of many others can be heard, and together we can gain the strength to make a difference for a better world).
1.1 To cure the problem at the root of FUNDING INVENTIONS that allow advancements in particle detection, it is necessary to eliminate the inconsistencies by implementing TRANSPARENCY in SCIENCE in the field of particle detection. This will provide a powerful tool to discover new particles, accurately measure all their characteristics and prevent wasting an additional $30 billion with the FPGA-OPRT for the upgrade of the Level-1 Trigger of Atlas and CMS as their leaders are building now, and will benefit humanity in many other fields of application of the inventions referenced herein.
1.1.1 If CERN Director of Research, Sergio Bertolucci, does not resign voluntarily in order to avoid embarrassment of those who placed their trust in him, the media should broadcast his words which show his arrogance, and his contradictory and inconsistent answers to polite, legitimate As Program Manager of the Axial-PET Medical Imaging project he should not have been leading the CERN committee assigning prizes to the best Medical Imaging device, and yet he did. Not only that, but In his own words he declares his incompetence in Medical Imaging, after assigning first prize to the Axial-PET project – essentially assigning himself the prize. This can only have been to deceive cancer associations like Marie Curie that funded his project after winning first prize. Rather than providing scientific answers about the inconsistency of wasting money to build the Axial-PET module which improves spatial resolution to the detriment of sensitivity and cost, he first blames Joram, chief engineer of the Axial-PET project, then the doctors from Marseille who requested the characteristics of the Axial-PET. After taxpayers and cancer patients are informed by the media of Bertolucci’s actions and his vulgar language, they can decide whether to give him their trust or to ask for his resignation.
1.1.2 U.S. Department of Energy, Office of High Energy Physics James Siegrist could stop funding to all DOE projects for LHC and Medical Imaging until American scientists (e.g. Adam Bernstein and U.S. experts in Level-1 Trigger & DAQ) who claim FPGA-OPRT is more cost effective than the 3D-Flow-OPRT do not agree to a public workshop where scientists and Crosetto can ask questions of each other on different projects, implementing Transparency in Science as it was implemented by SSC Director on December 14, 1993 in regard to the 3D-Flow invention. Jim Siegrist was the first leader who supported Crosetto’s invention in 1992 when both were working at the SSC. While over 2,000 scientists are attending the 2014 IEEE-NSS-MIC-RTSD conference, it would be convenient and save money if J. Siegrist could write a public letter to the General Chairman of this conference, asking to kindly host Crosetto’s workshop for Transparency in Science in the specific field of particle detection that he requested in May 4, 2014;
1.1.3 European Commission, Department of High Energy Physics and all CERN member and observer countries could stop funding CERN LHC and Medical Imaging until scientists of CERN member and associated countries do not permit Crosetto and other scientists to ask questions of each other in a public workshop where the claimed cost-effectiveness of the FPGA-OPRT by I. Gregor, A. Bernstein and other leaders from CMS and Atlas experiments are compared with the 3D-Flow and other proposals from other scientists. This will avoid wasting an additional $30 billion and 10 years work from 10,000 scientists to find out 10 year from now that FPGA-OPRT was not adequate.
1.2 To cure the problem of funding applications of the invention in particle detection combined with inventions in Medical Imaging that can benefit saving millions of lives it is necessary to eliminate the inconsistencies by implementing TRANSPARENCY in SCIENCE in the field of early cancer detection. This is achievable through ultrasensitive, low examination cost 3D-CBS devices that can accurately detect minimum, abnormal biological processes, effective for early cancer detection for a safe screening of asymptomatic people, for monitoring the recurrence in cancer survivors and for improving prognosis during treatment as well as avoiding wasting money and time in the development of new PET which increases spatial and time resolution to the detriment of sensitivity and examination cost, or wasting money in the development of the EXPLORER device, less sensitive and ten times more expensive than the 3D-CBS.
1.2.1 If scientists who receive taxpayers money to implement medical imaging devices that should be effective to reduce cancer deaths and cost do not accept the implementation of open, public scientific procedures to understand the laws of nature and make the scientific truth for the benefit of humanity prevail, and use their power and/or money instead, to repress, suppress and obstruct advancement in science and to oppress people, then media should inform taxpayers their name, about their actions, and voice their inconsistencies. If they are not willing to cooperate to clarify their inconsistencies through logical reasoning in a public dialogue or by accepting to perform a small experiment that would prove them right or wrong, media should ask taxpayers and cancer patients to express their opinion whether they should give them their trust or ask for their resignations.
1.2.2 The U.S. National Institutes of Health, Director Francis Collins and the NIH-NCI Director, Harold Varmus, could stop funding all NIH Medical Imaging projects until American scientists do not agree to have a public workshop where scientists and Crosetto ask questions of each other on different projects. These scientists should provide scientific evidence supporting their claim that PET medical imaging devices with high spatial and time resolution (or high sensitivity, but extremely expensive as is the EXPLORER), have higher potential to reduce cancer deaths and cost compared to the ultrasensitive, low examination cost 3D-CBS technology. At the public workshop, it will be important that people could hear the responses regarding the inconsistencies directly from the American scientists, including Georges Elfakhri firstname.lastname@example.org and all those who decide the approval of papers and the funding of projects or who have received NIH Grant money for Medical Imaging. While over 2,000 scientists are attending the 2014 IEEE-NSS-MIC-RTSD conference, it would be convenient and save money if F. Collins and H. Varmus could write a public letter to the General Chairman of this conference, asking to kindly host Crosetto’s workshop for Transparency in Science in the specific field of Medical Imaging that he had requested in May 9, 2014.
1.2.3 The European Commission, Department of Health, Cancer Research and Medical Imaging, the Director for Innovation, Peter DROELL and the Director of the new diagnostic tools and technologies, Alexandru-Sorin Costescu could stop funding all Medical Imaging projects until scientists of EU who approve papers and handle EU taxpayers money do not permit Crosetto and other scientists to ask questions of each other in a public workshop where the claimed benefits in improving PET spatial and time resolution to the detriment of high sensitivity and low examination cost (or the claimed benefits of the high sensitivity, extremely expensive EXPLORER) are compared with the ultrasensitive, low examination cost 3D-CBS technology. This will avoid wasting millions of dollars in developing new PET with high spatial and time resolution to the detriment of high sensitivity and low examination cost, wasting billions of dollars in the market of over 5,000 PET that have demonstrated in the past 20 years which could not reduce cancer deaths and cost and will avoid letting millions of people die prematurely who could have been saved with the 3D-CBS effective, early cancer detection
