Question on the Standard Model

I read in a magazine (namely Scientific American) that the Standard Model successfully combines Quantum Mechanics with General Relativity, but I also remember reading in The Elegant Universe that the Standard Model fails to do so. What's true and what's not?

No it does not. I guess they wrote special relativity - this is indeed a combination the standard model does.
It would help to see the specific article.

You are right it is Special Relativity, thank you :)
