+ - CERN scientists 'break the speed of light' ->

Submitted by lecheiron
lecheiron (2441744) writes "Neutrino, an elementary sub-atomic particle with a tiny amount of mass created in radioactive decay or in nuclear reactions such as those in the Sun, was first confirmed in 1934.

Three years showed neutrinos pumped from CERN near Geneva to Gran Sasso in Italy had arrived 60 nanoseconds quicker than light would have done."

+ - Supercomputer predicts revolution->

Submitted by lecheiron
lecheiron (2441744) writes "A study, based on millions of articles, charted deteriorating national sentiment ahead of the recent revolutions in Libya and Egypt.

While the analysis was carried out retrospectively, scientists say the same processes could be used to anticipate upcoming conflict.

The study's information was taken from a range of sources, then the information was analysed for two main types of information: mood — whether the article represented good news or bad news, and location — where events were happening and the location of other participants in the story."
