In the June 25, 2005 issue of The Globe And Mail, science journalist Dan Falk writes:

… speed is equal to distance multiplied by time…


I am guessing that Dan Falk is having a rather difficult time defending himself by arguing that “multiplied” was a typo for “divided“. Just guessing.

Then again, today is July 29 and the “typo” is still there in the on-line version of the article

This also speaks volumes (would that be in cubic feet?) about the average level of basic science training in mainstream media proof-readers…
