I hate the pain one has to go through to put some music in wordpress. Someone
should work hard to improve this. I don’t like silence and the bulky players they
Should we care to step outside tomorrow and stand somewhere hoping to see the
funny looking Pince Charles and his very un-attractive second wife-Camilla? Let’s
see what the weather says. It was a very cold day here
Maybe they’ll be actually kinda photogenic
A completely unrelated event also sports a British name, a physicist Peter Ware Higgs. There’s rumor again of another possible discovery of the Higgs boson (at 160 GeV),
this time at Fermilab’s tevatron, and it could be the MSSM one. This could save some
junior theorists careers. Here is the plot I ripped off John Conway’s posts on cosmicvariance
For the details, check here and here.
I just realized I could have named this blog Cosmic Invariance, maybe someone already

现在换中文：内容有些敏感， 如果你一样从事所谓科学研究，可能你不需要我告诉你这些。这话可能对初学的人有一点负面影响, 就是科学领域的诚实和科学家的integrity有很大问题。有一类人常会发表自己不懂的东西，尤其如果是senior的学者，完全没有人有办法抱怨。这一点的流弊是乐于跟从这些学界大腕却没有真才实学的人将成为未来的领导者。当然我在这里落里吧唆实在没趣，只不过发生在自己熟悉的领域和人身上比较令人感慨。
Enjoy your meal.
