Plagiarism passage of the day: Fuzzy

Today’s Plagiarism Passage of the Day is from a notice that appears in the July 2011 issue of  the journal Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review. The Retraction Watch blog spotted it, and gives context and background. The statement is:
