The latest on Ran Boytner, former executive director of the Institute for Field Research

For those who have followed the events of the past year or two concerning the Institute for Field Research and its former director, a colleague writes with the following information. For those not up to speed on this, please search "Boytner" on this blog; for legal reasons I am limited in how much linking to past posts I can and want to do. I have slightly edited the following to keep it factual without commentary.

"The website of Twin Cairns, Ran Boytner’s new company, is up and running:

Boytner’s record at UCLA and IFR is probably why his name is nowhere to be found on the website. (For details see previous posts on this blog.) The investors would doubtless want to keep it this way.

Take a look at their Page Source

Looks like he is using images from this 2019 IFR field school

Can’t find it now, but someone commented a while ago that he’s using IFR photos also on his other websites. I betya that despite everything that happened they are all still in cahoots.

Mr. Balter,
I follow you on Tweeter for some time, and noticed that you tweeted today about Kurin supporting Ran Boytner who was terminated from @IFR for “breach of trust.” You may be interested then to learn that he is actively pointing colleagues towards his new venture: Centre for Field Sciences (CFS).
As many of us now know, Boytner was credibly accused and/or found responsible for sexual misconduct at UCLA and IFR. The CFS board of directors are either unaware or do not care.
Is there something we can do to alert students and faculty?
