Treatment of space-time as a condensate of space-time quanta in Loop Quantum Gravity framework supports a richer description of the event horizon and holographic principle.
In principle, nothing that enters a black hole can leave the black hole. This has considerably complicated the study of these mysterious bodies, which generations of physicists have debated since 1916, when their existence was hypothesized as a direct consequence of Einstein's Theory of Relativity. There is, however, some consensus in the scientific community regarding black hole entropy—a measure of the inner disorder of a physical system—becaus...

Mitochondrial DNA links a 2500 year old "Phoenician" with an ancient European hunter gatherer group
Analysis of the ancient man's DNA reveal he had European ancestry.

We have one race on Earth the more we learn from anthropological geneticists, and that is the Human Race. We all have ancestry that is not limited to geographic locations and thanks to research and articles like this, we are finally becoming self aware of who we are. Human Beings.

Photophobic X boson: Evidence for a new boson and more forces?
Ever since the discovery of dark matter and the inability of the standard model of particle physics to explain it (and the failure to detect WIMPs), dark forces mediated by new bosons and involving hidden sectors have got increasing attention. Key to extending the standard model is to find phenomena that deviate from its predictions.
Scientists in Hungary fired protons at Lithium targets and studied the angular distribution of electron-positron pairs emitted by unstable Be-8 nuclei formed when proton hits Li-7. They found an unexpected bump at 140 degrees angular separation which should not have been there if the standard model is all there is to it suggesting the presence of new interactions and particles. While the experimenters have ruled out instrument error, theorists are scrambling with new theoretical explanations and other teams are planning to look at a new 17MeV boson which is the simplest explanation with the data. It turns out that currently available experimental data does not rule out the possibility.

Radioactive decay anomaly could imply a new fundamental force, theorists say.

+John McPherson We also know that a lot of things don't work as expected, and the real problem was the standard model was too perfect where it worked leaving no immediate room for improvement.

Rediscovery of "extinct" blue-eyed ground dove
Endemic to Brazil, this bird which was thought extinct has been rediscovered. All in all 12 individuals were spotted in a habitat which itself is threatened. The location and further details have been kept secret to until protection measures can be implemented.
The blue eyes of an extremely rare bird hadn't been seen for nearly a century. In one of the most extraordinary stories in Brazilian conservation, a group of researchers have announced the comeback of the Blue-eyed Ground-dove. These are the first ever photos.

Several new malaria drugs under development share a common feature: they promote an influx of sodium ions into Plasmodium parasites that have invaded red blood cells and multiply there. A study published on May 26th in PLOS Pathogens suggests that this increase in sodium concentration kills the parasite by changing the composition of its outer membrane (the skin equivalent) and promoting division of the parasite before its genome has been replica...

Neanderthals constructed stone structures in underground caves 175000 years ago
Circular megalithic structures made by our human ancestors in locations like stonehenge continue to fascinate us but such symbolic or functional structure building is not unique to humans. Now there is evidence of circular structure made by arrangement of stones in an underground cave by neanderthals at a time when there were only neaderthals in Europe.
Archaeology: Neanderthals built underground

I was enthralled with this article and went looking for more info. Tonight was an article that they found a tomb that was 2,300 years old and I thought, "Well so!"

+raja viswanathan​ I have noticed that when ever intelligent posts are put out about the greed of the American oil industry, someone like you has to jump on and try and defend them by saying that the consumption has gone down when we all know that it hasn't. We know already that the Koch brothers pay for anything to protect Exon oil. It is just annoying and unbelievable crap.

Toilets and sanitation in the ancient world.
Archaeological studies on toilets in the ancient world is shedding light on the life of ordinary people, their food habits and public health.
By scouring the remains of early loos and sewers, archaeologists are finding clues to what life was like in the Roman world and in other civilizations.

Understanding the molecular basis of morphological adaptation in giraffes
Comparative genomics have zeroed in on the genes that have driven the morphological changes unique to giraffes. Next stop - Edit mouse genome with similar changes and see what happens.
Scientists spot mutations that could explain how giraffes became the world’s tallest living mammals.

Excellent dinner buffet with good variety. Almost everything is good with a balance of flavors, not overly spicy like other places (Just right). Dinner rates 750/head +taxes and Lunch 500/head + taxes (Lunch service only on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday) Desserts also good. Avoid over-eating starters. Best eatery in Lucknow at this time

A very enjoyable experience. Good Bollywood themed entertainment show which you will enjoy more if you know the filmy dialogues and songs from old Hindi films. The Culture gully was also interesting and novel, although it could have been bigger with more regions covered. The Kerala stall was a disappointment, what with the "Boat Bar" ignoring all the good things in Kerala for the Keralites penchant for the small peg.

It was worth every penny of it. For best value, book online in advance and reach on time. Leave somewhat early, even the London tube can breakdown. (It happened twice during my four days in London).

Bought two items from their online store. Total fraud. Over several weeks one item still remains pending. The other was totally damaged and they dont have a return policy other than trying to force customers to accept them. They dont even email an order confirmation Their call center does not work. Here is a link to a facebook page of aggrieved customers. Buy at your peril

Tasty but very spicy. Those who like excessively spicy Indian food would love it though.
