physburn writes "The Russian Dubna Nuctron accelerator has reported finded a new elementary particle. The E(38) Boson at 38 MeV, it interacts only with quarks and gluons, but decays (via quark diagrams) into pairs of photons. The particle was previously reported in February from data from the BaBar experiment, and the new data seems to confirm its existence." Link to Original Source top
physburn writes "The BBC is reporting recent results from the Cresst dark matter search in Italy. Between 2009 and 2011, Cresst have seen 67 events, a 4 sigma detection of dark matter particles with a mass of either around 15 GeV or 25 GeV. The results are near those previous results from DAMA and Cogent. So has dark matter finally been found, and if so what is it?" Link to Original Source top

Somewhere in a triangle between, Roswell (UFO), Alberqueue (Left Turn), and Armillo (Do you know the way), a 22.5 square mile, a triangle of High Temperature Superconductor pipeline is to be build. Each leg of the triangle can carry 5GW of electricity. The purpose to load balance and sell electricity between America's three power grids. Previously the Eastern Grid, Western Grid and Texan Grid have been seperate, preventing cheap electricity being sold from one end of America to the other. The Tres Amiga Superstation as it is to be called, will final contact the three grids. The superstation is also design to link renewable solar and wind power in the Grids, and is to use HTS wire from American Superconductor. Some 23 years after its invention today is day HTS came of age. came of age." Link to Original Source
Years, a online dot-com company, years of programming experience, and a long CV of previous work, is not getting me a job in the current conditions. Being out of work for 18 months now, and getting poor.

You might have notice in all my recent post, I've ended with a sig pointing
to something called a Feed on a topic related to the post. This is from my
Feed aggregation service, Feed Distiller, which
has been running for about a year. Feed Distiller take input ATOM/RSS feeds from blogs
around the world, merges the feeds, and filters (using advanced statistical word/word pair
methods) the items to keep only those on subject. The result is a 8 hourly update
web page and a new rss/atom feed. If there's any subject you want to follow, you can make
your own Feed Distiller feed for it, we even have a post-screen google search mashup connected
to the system, to help find new input feeds. If you run a blog, you might want to add it
in to one of our feeds, to get the extra readership. You might (pretty please do), want to
display the related feed as a widget on your page.
Feed Distiller been running for a year, is stable, but i'm currently scaling up the engine to
handler a lot more feeds. I've an expensive server to run, and i'm not near breakeven yet. So
please don't begrudge me the advertising. I enjoying running Feed Distiller it lets me experiment
with AI technique, and multithreaded server programming. I also get to keep up on the all the latest news.
I'm alway happy when, I find on of slashdot articles, as also been autofound on one of my feeds. For latest
news items on Feed Distiller see our press release blog.
As well as Feed Distiller, I also run a number of blogs you might be interested in.
Axitronics is about my theory of dark energy, which I believe
is explained by a new interaction, similar to the electromagnetic force, but which interacts with neutrinos instead of electrons.
