I'm certain someone driven to evoke the title of "doctor" in his/her online ID has superior research skills.

I find just two articles--one co-written. Both were 30 years ago and both were in a publication called "Ducks Unlimited."

Your website lists more at http://www.hayesandassociates.co.nz/the_brown_teal.htm

Unfortunately, these do not appear to be academic journals.

Is there a copy of your dissertation publicly available? I realize the university awarding your Ph.D. has gone out of business, but perhaps you've posted it somewhere, or it is hosted by a third party? I'd love to read it.

You really need to polish up your investigative skills Rich.
In the meantime here's what your friend John Bear had to say about the "NATURAL HISTORY, CAPTIVE MANAGEMENT & SURVIVAL OF THE NEW ZEALAND BROWN TEAL"

“Every once in a while, I really enjoy the act of delving deeply (if briefly) into a totally new (for me) area. Sometimes this simply involves picking up a book someone has left on a library table. Or being dragged along by my wife to a lecture or workshop given by someone I'd never heard of on a topic I barely knew existed. And sometimes a Brown Teal work appears magically on the computer. What an immense piece of work this is. And the book is so well designed.”

And, here are a few comments from some of the world's most prominent people involved in waterfowl management:

Professor Emeritus Milton Weller
It is most impressive and comprehensive and I sincerely hope that it does the job

Professor Emeritus Janet Kear
Congratulations on a really first class publication

Dr Baz Hughes, Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust - The brown teal manual is wonderful

Dr John Innes (Pateke Audit team member) – Your independent comments and actions re Pateke have always been important in highlighting the plight of the species

Dr Richard Jakob-Hoff (Chief Veterinary Surgeon Auckland Zoo) – Congratulations on putting this valuable information into print

Perhaps you could produce similar evidence of the recognition and support for your Union Institute & University doctoral work.

Congratulations on the practical uses of your work. It is indeed a wonderful and prideful thing. But....

It doesn't change the fact that your work is not scholarly. That's fine, of course, but it doesn't qualify for the award of a degree--at any level. The question was whether or not the work you submitted for your degree was (a) scholarly--whether it submitted and accepted for publications in peer-reviewed academic journals, or (b) supervised--whether it was developed under the supervision of a doctoral advisor and/or committee.

One might turn a thesis into a book, self-published or otherwise. The reverse simply isn't true.

I think it is wonderful that your work has resulted in so many good forms of recognition and good works. Seriously. But why you would tarnish all of that with claims of a fake degree sold by a fake school under utterly non-academic processes based upon valuable-yet-non-academic work is baffling. Why not let your fine work and other forms of recognition stand on their own? Or, alternately, if the degree and title are truly that important, why not earn them legitimately from a recognized university? Sure, you might have to take some lower degrees in preparation, but a man of your obvious talents (and I really mean that) could do it. And wouldn't that be awesome!


Neil, I'm going to leave this thread. But I really mean it: you should consider going through the process of earning a degree from a recognized university. Good luck.

But Rich you know absolutely nothing about my qualifications, apart from my most important one: being honoured by the Queen of England, complete with a diploma signed by the Queen herself, and being honoured by the NZ Government!

Again, a non sequitur from you. I am sincerely disappointed. Yes, you have been recognized and honored. But you have purchased and claimed two fake doctorates from totally non-existent universities. This is to your utter discredit.

I am not talking about any of your other recognitions. Your claim to a doctorate is a fraud. It is a fake. It is a lie. I've tried to be careful about this, hoping you'd eventually see the error of your claims and back away gracefully. But, no. Instead, you choose to plow ahead. But I notice that you have not yet commented once on your fake doctorates. Not once! And they are the issue. So....

(Yes, I'd hoped to end this diatribe, but you continue to offer nonsense as an excuse for your fraud. Please stop.)

Congratulations on all your accomplishments. Seriously. That said (and meant), stop claiming a fake doctorate (and ignoring the other fake doctorate you purchased). You would be so much better off that way.

In the eyes of the vast majority my KU degree is far more legitimate than your Union degree - and was far more difficult to achieve. Many in the USA still proudly list their KU degrees and your demeaning comments about KU are another clear indication that you are quite out of touch with reality.
What is widely known is that your Union Institute degree was awarded after only a few months of very sub-standard 'research' and that it nearly brought an end to Union Institute - which was claimed by many to be a diploma-mill. (Do a Google on it!)

What of the dozen or more English universities that award doctorates from published work? Our friend is obviously a xenophobic American and a bit of a wanker. I wonder if he craps on schools in black countries like the good doctor who got a PhD from 1/16 of a dissertation.

Go figure.
In your words, the Harvard plagiarism scandal and the global warming fraud mean nothing because -after all- the pack said it was trifle after all.
I have seen as much tripe by university presses as i have on free blogs...and as much good stuff from free publishers as i have from seventy-to-ninetynine-cents-a-page topshelf presses.
Read the review portion of peer-review journals and often you'll see the pack members going at one another's throat hurling accusations of incompetence and political mischief in all directions while picking one another's work apart...work that came by that topshelf press at eighty cents a page and ought to have met certain standards to start with.
Last, while few or nobody reads stuff from free publishers, as many (few?) read stuff from topshelf presses at seventy cents per page for obvious reasons. I think 90% copies sold are sent either to mandatory recipients -journals, certain departments or scholars- for free, or bought by libraries subscribing to that press house.
You then buy it on abebooks as second-hand books a few years later for pennies: that's what it all boils down to.

Fine. No one is claiming a sort of superiority for the academic process. But if someone claims a degree, it ought to be the result of what it takes to earn such a designation. Take a different route--get a different outcome. But if one wants to claim a degree and style himself "doctor," one should go to a university and earn one, not some other guy's house. Simply put....

Process: non-academic
University: non-existent
Degree: fake
Title: self-awarded

It is unfortunate.

Unfortunately, producing said "majority" is a bit harder than claiming it exists.

"Knightsbridge University" is not recognized anywhere in the world as a university. It was just a guy selling degrees out of his house. There is no other "reality."

"Do a Google on it"? Truly? That's your analysis? Okay, let's do that, only with "Knightsbridge University." Ooh, that's not good.

The need to twist the argument so violently merely to argue for the legality of such behavior is remarkable. I'm sorry you do this.

Yes, what of them? As I've posted, the process of earning a doctorate on the basis of published work is available at a number of recognized universities. Unfortunately, the process the poster followed was not that. Nor was it at a university. He has styled himself "doctor" on the basis of nothing.

Why not do it at a recognized university? The poster can't answer that. Instead, he bought a diploma from a guy selling them out of his house. The facts are never in dispute, not even by that poster. Actually, they come from him.

Good to see you are still in Walter Mitty mode Rich! You have completely forgotten that your friend JB operated Greenwich from a house and then from a single room office!
You have also forgotten what you wrote in October 2010:

Quote:Narcissism and Posting
For the past 12 years or so, I've been posting on quite a few DL-related fora. After pondering it for awhile, I realize that my primary aims in doing so have been two:
a. Showing off what I know.
b. Proving you're wrong.
Oh, sure, there's been no small amount of desire to truly help people as well, but I'm afraid (truly) that reason doesn't crack the top two. Thus....
I've concluded that my behavior has been incredibly narcissistic and selfish. Regardless of the low esteem in which I hold a few posters, I've found a way to get even lower. Thus....
I'm going to refrain from posting for all the right reasons. I'll still read the boards, and will be happy to respond to the few PMs requesting assistance. If I have some salient and extremely essential information another poster requires--certainly a long shot, at best--I'll PM it. I would like to reserve the opportunity to post if I'm convinced it will help the community, but I suspect that will not happen. And I won't be posting this on the other board--most readers there also read here, I suspect. But it really doesn't matter. So.... See you around. I may have something to announce next year. Peace....

Then only a few days ago you stated that you would not be posting on this subject!
On the subject of a Doctorate by Published Work I suggest that you also do a Google on this, as you will find that it is a very common process amongst state universities and private universities - throughout the world.
Sadly you also seem to be unaware that Doctors, Lawyers, Dentist, Architects, Surveyors, Electricians, Plumbers, numerous types of medical professionals, gunsmiths, engineers, auto mechanics, and just every profession you can think of often work from private houses/homes, etc.
Not to mention that KU operated perfectly legally in Denmark and had a very impressive Faculty - some of who I got to know quite well and all believed that your Union degree was of a far lower standard than any degree ever awarded by KU!
