Higgs boson: scientists confident they have discovered the ‘God particle’
CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, announced today that after extensive testing it was “looking more and more” like the particle which they discovered last year was the Higgs boson.
Finding the Higgs plugs a gaping hole in the Standard Model of physics, the theory that describes all the particles, forces and interactions that make up the universe.
Today the collaborating scientists from ATLAS and CMS announced their results at the Moriond
Conference, in La Thuile, Italy, further confirming the “magnificent” discovery.
“The preliminary results with the full 2012 data set are magnificent and to me it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs boson though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is.” said CMS
spokesperson Joe Incandela. ………..

Scientists working at the world’s biggest atom smasher near Geneva have announced the discovery of a new subatomic particle that looks remarkably like the long-sought Higgs boson. Sometimes called the “God particle” because its existence is fundamental to the creation of the universe, the hunt for the Higgs involved thousands of scientists from all over the world.

Scientists developing device to ‘hack’ into brain of Stephen Hawking Updated 06:42 PM Jun 26, 2012
LONDON – Stephen Hawking is testing out a groundbreaking device to allow him to communicate through brain waves in a project that scientists have likened to “hacking into his brain”. Dr Hawking, 70, has been working with scientists at Standford University who are developing a the iBrain – a tool which picks up brain waves and communicates them via a computer.The scientist, who has motor neuron disease and lost the power of speech nearly 30 years ago, currently uses a computer to communicate but is losing the ability as the condition worsens, the Daily Telegraph reported. ………

The DNA of Human Evolution
What makes us human? What distinguishes us from chimpanzees and other great apes? Using high-powered cluster computing and data from the human and chimp genome projects, Katie Pollard, an associate professor of biostatistics at the Gladstone Institutes at the University of California, San Francisco, has discovered some surprising answers, as she explains in this interview.

Faster-than-light neutrinos? Why nobody is surprised it might be an error.
Last year, European particle physicists observed neutrinos apparently traveling faster than the speed of light. But now it seems that it was a bad measurement, which is no surprise to the physics community. ……..
