– The Higgs boson. Like a lot of other people, I’m waiting to hear the news from the CERN press conference this morning about whether or not they have found evidence for the Higgs boson. I don’t think anyone expects they have definitive evidence, but they must have something … interesting.
Update: Two experiments at the LHC (large hadron collider) found hints of the Higgs, everyone is very excited, but they need another year of data before they can yell “eureka!”
– Grimm vs Once Upon a Time. I was wrong. Once Upon a Time is the superior show. It kept getting better while Grimm kept going nowhere. I’m sorry Grimm. By the way, the sidekick guy (the Blutbaden) should be the star.
– The Christmas Spirit from a Jew during the depression. I read this story of kindness on the Smithsonian’s website (and it’s also a book).
– Lowe’s pulling ads from the TLC reality show All-American Muslim. For the love of God. Either they’re a racist company or they’re like politicians who will switch positions, sacrifice their morals and integrity and say whatever they need to say to get elected. (I’m looking at you, John McCain.) Either ways, Lowe’s sucks, as do the people and groups that put pressure on them.
Yes, another cat picture. Except for swimming, I was home most of the day yesterday working on my book. Here is my little hoverer.
