Missing Higgs

Missing Higgs
A major breakthrough in particle physics came in the 1970s when physicists realized that there are very close ties between two of the four fundamental forces – namely, the weak force and the electromagnetic force. The two forces can be described within the same theory, which forms the basis of the Standard Model. This ‘unification’ implies that electricity, magnetism, light and some types of
radioactivity are all manifestations of a single underlying force called, unsurprisingly, the "electroweak" force. But in order for this unification to work mathematically, it requires that the force‐carrying particles have no mass. We know from experiments that this is not true, so physicists Peter Higgs, Robert Brout and François Englert came up with a solution to solve this conundrum.

They suggested that all particles had no mass just after the Big Bang. As the Universe cooled and the temperature fell below a critical value, an invisible force field called the ‘Higgs field’ was formed together with the associated ‘Higgs boson’. The field prevails throughout the cosmos: any particles that interact with it are given a mass via the Higgs boson. The more they interact, the heavier they become,
whereas particles that never interact are left with no mass at all.

The idea provided a satisfactory solution and fitted well with established theories and phenomena. The problem is that no one has ever observed the Higgs boson in an experiment to confirm the theory. finding this particle would give an insight into why particles have certain mass, and help to develop subsequent physics

My 2 Cents

My 2 Cents

We The People…it’s the first three words of the most important document in American history….but more than that it is the most important document of our present and future. When the founding fathers met in Philadelphia way back in 1787…they fought, they argued, they worked and prayed. When it was all said and done they came up with a magnificent document that would not only be the over-riding law in this country…but would be the blue-print for our future.

Now some would argue that the document, now over 200 years old is out-of-date…not up with the times…not relevant any more. I would argue that those founding fathers had in some ways the gift of prophecy…that the document they drafted could have been written for a day exactly like today like today. Those words, were meant to protect us from a government that has become too large…has too much power and is seeking to impact our daily lives as citizens.

Oh we have fallen well away from what those infinitely wise men set out for us all those many years ago. We have allowed men of much lesser wisdom and thought to corrupt the document over the years. They have “interpreted” its contents to fit their own social or political agendas. Presidents, Congressmen, and even Supreme Court Justices, all of whom are sworn to uphold this Constitution, have instead ruled in ways that are completely contrary to its intent and meaning.

All of this deterioration didn’t happen overnight. In fact it has been happening almost since the day the document was ratified…but in no other time in our history has one government ever taken as many liberties with the text as we see today. As a result, our liberties as citizens of this great country have been stripped away one at a time.

The time has come to stand up America…we must hold this government to follow the “law of the Land”…to uphold and defend this Constitution and to do it with the spirit and intent of the great men who carefully, thoughtfully and prayerfully penned it. If WE THE PEOPLE allow this continual degradation to continue…if we allow our rights and freedoms to be slowly taken away…if we continue to ignore what’s happening in Washington, in our statehouses and in our own city halls…then WE THE PEOPLE shall pay the price.

And that’s my 2 cents

Walt Whitman, O Me! O Life!

Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?

Answer.
That you are here—that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

Wild West Germany

The northern German town of Bad Segeberg is renowned for two things: a vast cave visited each winter by twenty-two thousand bats, and an annual Karl May Festival visited each summer by three hundred thousand people. Karl May (pronounced "my") is an adventure writer from the late nineteenth century whom most Americans have never heard of but whose stories of the American West are to this day better known to Germans than the works of Thomas Mann. His books have sold more than a hundred million copies. Though May never visited the American West, he told everyone that he had, and he wore a necklace of bear teeth, as if in proof. All his life, he was a confabulator, even when it was of no benefit to him.

May's most beloved characters are a noble Apache leader named Winnetou and his blood brother, Old Shatterhand, a German immigrant to the United States. The good friends feature in fifteen of May's eighty-odd works and are central in a series of films from the nineteen-sixties which were so successful that they are said, with only some exaggeration, to have saved the West German film industry. Most Germans can hum the theme music. In 2002, in a copyright case before the German Federal High Court, it was held that Winnetou was no longer a mere character in a novel; he had become "the name for a certain human type, that of the noble Indian chief."

In the summer, you can ride a diesel "steam" train from Bad Segeberg's central square to the Karl May Festspiele grounds, which are up near the Kalkberg, the steep hill that was once home to the town's castle. There are faux log cabins labelled Pony Express, Sheriff's Office, Barber Shop, Saloon. One sign reads, in English, "Cold Drinks, Hot Food, and Pretty Girls." You can buy a buffalo burger,
hang out in a tepee, and watch children play at panning for gold. Antique handcuffs and at least five kinds of toy gun are for sale, as are tomahawks, feathered headdresses, and all of Karl May's novels and stories, most of which are available in at least seven editions, including green-covered volumes from the century-old Karl May Verlag-a press that prints only books by and about Karl May.

In a vast outdoor amphitheatre atop the bat cave, seven times a week, one finds the festival's central attraction: the staging of Winnetou and Old Shatterhand stories. In addition to handsome and often bare-chested actors, the spectaculars feature live horses, live chickens, gunfights, flaming-spear fights, and tumbling from roofs. There are thousands of children in the audience, many in face paint and feathers-- most come as Indians, though a small number dress up as cowboys-- and many with parents and grandparents who attended as children. Not to have fun at the festival-a Wagnerian Gesamtkunstwerk of sorts, with all five senses attended to-would require a real dedication to joylessness.
