"We have observed a new boson with a mass of 125.3 +- 0.6 GeV at 4.9 sigma significance. " 

Thats just from CMS.

The ATLAS groups shows a boson at 126.5 Gev, at 5 sigma significance.

Fabiola Gianotti thanks nature for a very lucky mass for the Higgs boson, allowing LHC to find it!

Rolf Heuer: "We have a discovery. A new particle consistent with the Higgs boson. But which one?"

On Bach's 327th birthday, a brilliant takedown of the Goldbergs.

And of course, Glenn Gould's 2nd recording is the best.

A lovely poem from Wislawa Szymborska, who died today.

Lot's Wife


They say I looked back from curiosity.
But I could have had reasons other than curiosity.
I looked back from regret for a silver bowl.
From distraction while fastening the latchet of my sandal.
To avoid looking longer at the righteous neck
of Lot my husband.
From sudden certainty that had I died
he would not even have slowed his step.
From the disobedience of the meek.
Alert to the pursuit.
Suddenly serene, hopeful that God had changed His mind....
