It should be pointed out that no elementary spin-zero particles have ever been found. In fact, the ad hoc introduction of these is considered by many theorists to be an unpleasant feature of the standard model.

Well, heck! Standard models are always loaded with unpleasant features, aren't they? If you want pleasant features you have to pay more money and get the deluxe model. Doesn't matter whether its a GUT or a SUV, the same principle applies.

well - if they are looking for the bosun - why aren't they looking on ships? Or do they want a bosun on shore leave?

Fermilab may be close to finding Higgs particles (Higgs boson) and the Higgs field:

In the GWS model, the spontaneous breakdown is brought about the introduction of an elementary scalar field. This leads to the prediction of (at least) an additional spin-zero particle, the Higgs boson. With the discovery of the W± and Z0 bosons at the CERN pp collider, and the top quark at the FERMILAB, only the Higgs boson
remains to be discovered to complete the particle content of the GWS electroweak theory. It should be pointed out that no elementary spin-zero particles have ever been found. In fact, the ad hoc introduction of these considered by many theorists to be an
unpleasant feature of the standard model.

The problem is the instability of the scalar particles masses under radiative corrections. For example, one-loop radiative corrections to these diverge quadratically, leading to corrections of the form:

δm2 = O(α/π)2

where is a cut-off parameter representing the scale of the theory and

α = e2/hc
≈ 1

is the fine structure constant. The parameter may be the Grand Unified Theory (GUT) scale O(1015GeV/c2), or the Plank scale O(1019GeV/c2) if we believe there is no new physics all the way up to the scale associated with quantum gravity. On the other hand, we know that for the scalar self-couplings to be sensibly treated within perturbation theory, the scalar mass

m2 6 O(m2
W/α) ∼ 1TeV/c2

In other words, either the Higgs sector is strongly interacting, or δm2 ≫,m2.

Such theories (where δm2 ≫,m2) have been technically referred to as
"unnatural", because the parameters have to be tuned with unusual precision in order to preserve the lightness of the Higgs mass compared to the GUT scale ?O(1TeV/c2).

One possible solution to the problem of naturalness is to imagine that the quarks, leptons and gauge bosons are all composites with associated scale ?O(1TeV/c2). While these solve the problem at present energies, it does not really represent a solution as we could ask the same questions of any underlying theory. Moreover, it would be difficult to understand why the gauge principle seems to work so well at least up to this point.

Paleontologists don't like people using the "B" word either. They generally prefer the "A" word, though there are a few who think the entire issue is the "S" word and those who are adamant about the issue should "F" word off.

Bush Hides U.S. Report Card In Sock Drawer
February 14, 2006 | Issue 42?07

CRAWFORD, TX?According to White House sources, following yet another disappointing grading period for the nation he leads, President Bush hid the national report card in his bedroom sock drawer Monday. "We, as a nation, got a D in international relations, a D in economics, and an F in military history," Bush reportedly said. "We must work hard to make sure no one finds out about this." Critics say the report-card-hiding effort is immature, and point out that the sock drawer is the first place The New York Times will look.

I've read that the "pronblem" to which SRS alludes is not due to a need to urinate, but due to dreaming. It's not necessary for a dream to have sexual content for it to produce male arousal, any dream will do. Makes sense to me. After all, dreaming is a function of the brain, and all women know where the male brain is located.

Doesn't look like the Spanish Armada to me, still....

Did ya know Katy Didd was a folkie?

"Night-time in a tropical rainforest, and lonely male Arachnoscelis katydids make their presence known with a burst of intense sound. You won't hear it, though, because they produce the highest-frequency ultrasound of any known insect.

Members of the cricket and grasshopper family are famous for their ability to sing, and most emit chirps at frequencies humans can hear. Some katydids produce ultrasonic chirps by rubbing their forewings together, pushing a scraper on one wing across a series of pegs on the other. This won't do for Arachnoscelis species, though. Fernando Montealegre-Z and Glenn Morris from the University of Toronto in Canada discovered that they chirp at 130 kilohertz, which is too high a frequency to be generated by merely rubbing the wings together.

The researchers collected the katydids from the Colombian rainforest, and as well as measuring their chirps they looked at their wings with an electron microscope. This revealed that as the wings rub against each other, the scraper wedges itself behind one of the pegs and distorts. When released, it springs back into shape, emitting a pulse of ultrasound (Journal of Experimental Biology, vol 209, p 4923).

"By using elastic energy, the animal saves metabolic energy, as the muscles do not contract at an almost impossible speed," says Montealegre-Z."

There ya go!

Speaking of skirmishing, the Legion had a bit of a set-to with one of the cops this evening. Young rookie cop, he was. Seemed like he didn't care for Morris' riding goat, Li'l Trigger, being tied to the usual lamppost outside the Hovel. His Sergeant, Eileen O'Ruin (her real name), told him not to mess with it, but Rookie Boy said that tying a goat to a city lamppost was in violation of Ordinance 34-782(a)1, which reads, "Except in case of riot, rebellion, or insurrection, thou shalt not tie thy goat to a city-owned lamppost."

Rookie Boy charged into the Hovel demanding to know who owned the goat with the saddle that was tied to a city-owned lamppost outside. Everybody looked at Morris, of course, and Morris owned up that it was his goat.

Then he stood up. All six feet, eight and one-sixteenth inches of him. And because NOBODY says bad things about Li'l Trigger, Morris was upset. You could tell by the way he ate his (full) beer mug, burped, and broke the logging chain he uses for a belt.

Rookie Boy demonstrated how quick thinking he was. He said, "Well, that's just one FINE lookin' goat, that's all I have to say!" and left so fast that his shadow took ten minutes to catch up with him.

In the doorway stood Sergeant O'Ruin, laughing fit to die. She walked over, patted her husband on the butt, and said, "Morris, you take Li'l Trigger home -- let him ride, ya hear, 'cause he IS a riding goat. We'll get this rookie shaped up yet. If we ever find him, that is. And dear -- pull your pants up!"

The police are putting a substation in an old store just a couple blocks from the Legion Hovel.

I presume that means the Legion Hovel sits somewhere on the banks of the American Falls Reservoir? I mean, it'd be heard to establish a substation anywhere else in southern Idaho. Even small submarines need thirty or so feet of water to be able to submerge. What good is a submarine as a police surveillance tool if it's right out in the open, floating on the surface of some little creek somewhere?

Well.

There's been an interesting development. The police are putting a substation in an old store just a couple blocks from the Legion Hovel.

It's not exactly an old store. It's actually an old, an old, well, an old whorehouse and opium den that was closed during The Great Vice Raids that followed the closing of the Air Base here after WW2. (Couldn't very well close them up DURING the War, could we? I mean, where would the boys 'n' girls have gone for off-duty recreation?) Anyway, the cops are turning it into a full-time, staffed, police substation and the folks in the Legion are quite happy about it.

They've complained over and over to the police about the noisy neighbors. Harassing telephone calls at all hours, awakening the drunks and threatening all sorts of physical violence just because the Glee Club is practicing "Roll Me Over In The Clover." People yelling about the friendly little wrasslin' matches which end in good comradeship and only a few broken bones and rarely any blood to speak of. And the Legion deals with those who might get so excited as to shoot out the lights or something -- everyone have to check ALL of their guns at the door and have had to do so for more'n ten years now, ever since that unfortunate incident where Clean Ike thought that Dirty Ike was wearing his (Clean's) hat and shot it off his (Dirty's) head only to find that he (Clean) was looking at his reflection in the mirror behind the bar and the ricchet off the mirror danged near put a bullet hole in the Memorial Portrait Of Naked Nellie, Man's Best Friend And A Pal To Women Too.

Anyway, the Legion has sent a thank-you note to the Chief of Police and has asked that the near-daily processions with torches and pitchforks by the neighbors be stopped because the carrying of nooses is severly disturbing to several of the Legion members, reminding them of Certain Things they'd rather forget.

We'll see.
