    Normal Science Graduates Too Many Sophomores

    I'm not entirely following your post. Could you give us an example of where "we have placed [physics and chemistry] on too high a pedestal"? Could you also give us an example where "[w]e have become deluded into thinking that the methods utilized by these sciences are not only the best but the...

    Black hole in LHC?

    Perhaps you were thinking of a http://arxivblog.com/?p=645"? One thing they’ve found is that it is possible to switch the force between atoms in certain kinds of BECs from positive to negative and back using a magnetic field, a phenomenon known as a Feschbach resonance. But get this: in 2001...

    Google's search engine from 2001 - Look at what I found!

    Ron Paul must have been relatively QUITE well-known considering that then governor Mike Huckabee only got 10500 hits and soon to be released "Windows XP" only 1,580.

    Google's search engine from 2001 -- Look at what I found! In celebration of their 10th anniversary, Google has posted it's search engine results and data going all the way back to January 2001: http://www.google.com/search2001.html [Broken] Sounds interesting... so I decided to compare...

    Molecules back to singular atoms.

    If slow speed determines longevity, then I guess Windows Vista will be around forever! OK, back to science now :) A gaint tortoise may move slow and have a long lifespan, but a giant bowhead whale moves faster than the tortoise and has been recorded as having a lifespan longer than that of the...

    CERN doomsday black hole lawsuit dismissed by Hawaiian judge: http://www.starbulletin.com/news/hawaiinews/20080928_Doomsday_suit_dismissed.html Unfortunately, this judge seems to have taken seriously some of the popular sensationalism surrounding this case when she writes that Is this over...

    Medical How many different diseases are there?

    I think I know what I'll be doing this week! Geez Luiz! Life's not as diseased as I thought! 2178 sounds about an order of a magnitude less than what I would have guessed. Guess there's only one way to know for sure... I'll count starting with the A's... see you all next year! :)

    Medical How many different diseases are there?

    I am wondering if anyone knows how many disesases have been identified/diagnosed throughout the world. I tried searching the NIH sites but, well, good god there is so much information I don't even know where to start or what search terms to use for this question! I would think that different...

    Bell Labs Kills Fundamental Physics Research

    http://blog.wired.com/gadgets/2008/08/bell-labs-kills.html" Six Nobel-prize worthy research came from that lab, including the invention of the silicon transistor, and the laser! It was a business decision by the parent company but, I think it's a very myopic business decision to abandon...
