Evidence for String Theory?

28 January 2006

Izeickl writes “PhysOrg.com is reporting that scientists working at a neutrino detector nicknamed AMANDA at the South Pole report that evidence for string theory may soon be coming. Extra dimensions predicted by string theory may affect observed numbers of certain neutrinos and this is what the scientists will be looking for. The article further states ‘No more than a dozen high-energy neutrinos have been detected so far. However, the current detection rate and energy range indicate that AMANDA’s larger successor, called IceCube, now under construction, could provide the first evidence for string theory and other theories that attempt to build upon our current understanding of the universe.'”

Politics

26 January 2006
An anonymous reader writes “Any democrat will tell you the republicans ignore the facts. Any republican will tell you the democrats ignore the facts. Turns out they’re right. A new study monitored brain activity of partisans; they shun logic and use emotional processing centers to justify their candidate’s contradictory statements. ‘With their minds made up, brain activity ceased in the areas that deal with negative emotions such as disgust. But activity spiked in the circuits involved in reward, a response similar to what addicts experience when they get a fix.'”
