S810 writes: "CNN is running this article about new insights into the God Particle, according to scientists this is the particle that gives all matter its mass.

From the article: "Scientists working on two independent experiments at the Tevatron accelerator in Batavia, Illinois, see patterns in data that might — just might — be indicative of signals from a Higgs boson. If so, that particle would have a mass between 115 to 135 GeV."

"But the results from U.S. collider experiments don't have enough statistical significance to call their data a discovery.""
