New email from an old fake academic publisher

The first day of spring brings snow and this email from Beall's listed Sky journals, specifically the fake Sky Journal of Educational Research, (which "provides rapid publication of articles in all areas of Educational Research" both "basic and applied") joining other fake Sky branded publications as:
Sky Journal of Agricultural Research.
Sky Journal of Microbiology Research.
Sky Journal of Biochemistry Research.
Sky Journal of Educational Research.
Sky Journal of Medicines and Medical Sciences.
Sky Journal of Food Sciences.
Sky Journal of Soil Science and Environmental Management.
Sky Journal of Business Administration and Management
The email is signed by the wittily named "Johnson Samuel". As Samuel Johnson said: “Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.”
