The top menu does not display link text in opera on android. Just a bevy of square placeholders. the topics menu renders as well as the links at the bottom; it's only the very top of the page near the logo. Luckily i was already logged in.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Your friend may be sensitive to infrasound. There's a decent entry on wikipedia under "infrasound" that may enlighten.
"In theory there is no difference between theory
and practice. In practice there is."

IIRC most of mass comes from quantum electrodynamical interactions. About 5 per cent is due to Higgs field interactions.
Google: "youtube susskind higgs" for some lectures on higgs interactions and some implications of them. One of them is my source for this.
They throw out hundreds or thousands of collisions for each datum they keep. So they have billions of events stored as data out of many trillions of mostly-boring collisions so far. This cherry-picked data may have something to do with it.
640 kg in, say, 640 1kg dirty bombs wouldn't need to be nuclear, only radioactive. Might be enough to "dirty-up" a whole lot of china's land.
Wolfram puts mars escape velocity at about 5000m/s, just under half that of earth.
Hawking thought this when he discovered/derived Hawking radiation from black holes. "Virtual" particles popping into existance exactly at the event horizon. Rather than annihilating as such particles typically do, one falls in and the other is released from the black hole.
This is a somewhat simplified account but the realization of virtual particles has been "known" for a few decades. Search youtube for "Susskind Black Hole" for a lecture series, about 16ish hours of material on this phenomenon.
This is an interesting development. Thanks for the links.
We could call it whatever we like but "higgsoid object"
has no search results whereas "higgs-like object"
returns useful results. That's close to the term the popular media ascribed to the phenomenon when it was discovered and is close enough to the terminology in the journals to find the scientific papers involved without much extra effort.
Your call as to what you would like to call it though.
Undergrad so take this with a grain of salt.
They found something that looks like a higgs, smells like a higgs, and even quacks like a higgs while looking in the higgs-pond. They, afaict, have not yet measured its quantum-spin as being zero which would confirm it's indeed a higgs.
If the higgs-like object that was discovered is truly A higgs, it may or may not be THE higgs of the standard model. The newly discovered decay channel of the higgs-like object seems to point toward the standard model and a few other frameworks which others here know in far greater detail than I.
Now they need to measure the spin...
There was a link to a paper in phys.org's coverage yesterday. I read the coverage but I haven't had time to check the paper out.
