Various news outlets are reporting a AAAS talk by Joe Lykken which appears to be about vacuum instability based on the mass of the Higgs. Frustratingly, there appears to be no info on the web apart from these crap popularizations. Can anyone provide any insight?

The best info I have is the following:

I think you put in the wrong link. Did you mean this one? http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=672826
