Light has momentum, and momentum can be transferred to make other things move. So when light hits a liquid like water or oil, theory suggests that the water should have some corresponding deformation. Now, they've observed both water and oil deforming -- being pushed inward -- by a very wide beam of light.

Here is the primary source:

[ #science   #physics   #light   #momentum   #research   #nature  ]
(Phys.org)—For more than 100 years, scientists have debated the question: when light travels through a medium such as oil or water, does it pull or push on the medium? While most experiments have found that light exerts a pulling pressure, in a new paper physicists have, for the first time, found ...

Jedi not the good guys either

So have been watching Clone Wars animated show over again, and Episode Death Trap got me thinking the Jedi aren't so good as they make themselves out to be.

Bad enough the adult clones really have no say in their lives and are essentially slaves, but in the Death Trap episode, the children clones still developing are basically child soldiers who are slaves as well. 

And the Jedi have no problem throwing these beings lives away as forced fodder. 

Oh sure they get attached to some of them individual, but they have no problem with the slave conditioning, and other problems with their use in war.

folks forget that this story has a basis in the concept of the 'battle of good and evil'. people forget or never learned that is not a universal concept.

Khairullozhon Matanov is a 24-year-old former cab driver from Quincy, Massachusetts. The night of the Boston Marathon bombings, he ate dinner with Tamerlan and Dhzokhar Tsarnaev at a kebob restaurant in Somerville. Four days later Matanov saw photographs of his friends listed as suspects in the bombings on the CNN and FBI websites.

Story
Tagline
Idealist, free thinker, I am a leaf on the wind.
Introduction
Information and Indian Food Addict.  

Have interests in architecture, science, activism, photography, art, charitable groups, politics, education, gaming, world events, and many other topics.

If you circle me what are you going to get?
A lot of news and stories on issues that interest me from the categories above.  And an occasional light or funny post interspersed. 

Stay on topics, and try to keep it relevant the majority of the time.  I'll try to be respectful, and welcome respectful responses back, even if I disagree with them.  I will challenge your views if I disagree though, but I will try to keep to the topic and not make it personal.  I expect the same from comments on my posts.  Keep it friendly.  That doesn't mean you can't disagree with me, that just means try to do it politely.  

I'm not religious, but friendly to those who are who are open to other views.  Those that try to push or force their views will get challenged back. So if you can't handle that, you might not want to circle me.

I'm not perfect and don't expect anyone to be perfect either.  People make mistakes, I know I do.


Don't see how it'll prevent those listed form abusing it, but see no harm in adding the following just in case:
