The secrets of the origins of light are set to be unlocked by the discovery of an elusive “ghost” particle a mile beneath Antarctica, scientists have announced.

Astronomers have for the first time identified the source of a high-energy neutrino which shot through a solid ice laboratory at the South Pole last year in a “triumph” that promises to revolutionise understanding of fundamental physics.

Neutrinos are virtually massless, subatomic particles which race across the universe, passing unnoticed through planets and stars.
Despite their abundance - hundreds of billions pass through each human every second - they have so far proved impossible to detect because they interact with matter so rarely.

However, the detection of a neutrino on September 22 2017 has since enabled scientists to identify its point of origin using a complex network of ground and space-based radiation telescopes.

The international team traced the particle’s provenance to a flaring galaxy, or “blazar”, with a supermassive black hole at its heart four billion light years away.

Because the neutrino comes from such a powerful light-producing source, its discovery should allow scientists to begin investigating the precise mechanism through which light is formed.

Published in the journal Science, the breakthrough is being hailed as equal in importance to the discovery of gravitational waves - “ripples” in space-time - in 2015.

We can't use it for anything else: it's extremely rare for intergalactic neutrinos to interact with matter, which is why all we can do is use it to make local group maps. Producing our own neutrinos would be expensive, difficult, and pointless because they dont like interacting with matter.

Seen this copy pasta on Breitbart

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/18/world/europe/trump-intelligence-russian-election-meddling-.html

WASHINGTON — Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election.

The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation.

Mr. Trump sounded grudgingly convinced, according to several people who attended the intelligence briefing. But ever since, Mr. Trump has tried to cloud the very clear findings that he received on Jan. 6, 2017, which his own intelligence leaders have unanimously endorsed.

The shifting narrative underscores the degree to which Mr. Trump regularly picks and chooses intelligence to suit his political purposes. That has never been more clear than this week.

On Monday, standing next to the Russian president in Helsinki, Finland, Mr. Trump said he accepted Mr. Putin’s denial of Russian election intrusions. By Tuesday, faced with a bipartisan political outcry, Mr. Trump sought to walk back his words and sided with his intelligence agencies.

On Wednesday, when a reporter asked, “Is Russia still targeting the U.S.?” Mr. Trump shot back, “No” — directly contradicting statements made only days earlier by his director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, who was sitting a few chairs away in the Cabinet Room. (The White House later said he was responding to a different question.)

Hours later, in a CBS News interview, Mr. Trump seemed to reverse course again. He blamed Mr. Putin personally, but only indirectly, for the election interference by Russia, “because he’s in charge of the country.”

A civilian superhero of sorts in Stockton is at it again. He calls himself Stockton’s Batman.

He’s a father of two and a local business owner. The latest citizen’s arrest was caught on camera.

The video shows the vigilante detaining a man he claims is smoking crystal meth, outside a busy 99 Cents Only Store.

Stockton’s Batman won’t use his real name or show his face. But told CBS13, that he’s nabbed hundreds of alleged criminals at the same Stockton Shopping Center.

“They’re criminals in to which point they’re committing crimes in front of my eyes,” he said.

Stockton Police said the man in the video wasn’t arrested or even cited.

But Batman said many of the bad guys he goes after do end up behind bars.

he House on Thursday passed another giant funding package, putting lawmakers exactly halfway on the path to advancing all 12 funding bills by Sept. 30.

But the march toward the Senate was interrupted by a raucous demonstration on the floor by Democrats, who broke into a chant of "USA, USA" as they forced a procedural vote attempting to restore election security grant funding slashed by Republicans.

The House’s flurry of action so far this summer is no reassurance that both chambers of Congress can muscle through all of the spending bills by the end of the fiscal year and avoid a stopgap spending measure — or even a potential government shutdown. The election security funds could be a flashpoint in the Senate, where Democrats hold more sway.

The two-bill fiscal 2019 spending bundle, which was approved 217-199, funds a slew of agencies including the Treasury Department, the IRS, the EPA, conservation programs — and election security.

House Democrats have seized on the GOP’s plan to reject new election security funding in the legislation, even as U.S. intelligence officials warn of the ongoing threat from Russia ahead of the midterms. That issue broke open this week, as an indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller revealed new details of how Russian officers attempted to crack into state voter databases.

“Surely we can rise above pandering to party and Putin to act on behalf of our elections,” House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said on the floor Thursday, rallying Democrats in the chant before the effort to fund new election grants failed 182-232. “We have sworn an oath to defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

The European Commission is stepping up a legal battle with Hungary over the country's migration rules.

It announced that Hungary will be referred to the EU Court of Justice.

The EU says Budapest does not respect its obligations around the treatment of asylum seekers and has demanded laws that criminalise attempts to help migrants seek refuge in Hungary.

>MEXICO CITY (AP) — President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Sunday released a seven-page letter he sent to U.S. President Donald Trump detailing how he plans to improve Mexico's economy and security when he takes office in December so that Mexicans do not feel the need to migrate.

>"There will be many changes," he promised in the letter. "And in this new atmosphere of progress with well-being, I'm sure we can reach agreements to confront together the migration phenomenon as well as the problem of border insecurity."

>The incoming Mexican president plans to cut government salaries, perks and jobs. Savings from those cuts, he says, will be directed toward social programs and infrastructure. He also plans to reduce taxes for the private sector in the hopes of spurring investment and job creation.

>Lopez Obrador said Sunday that some of his future collaborators in government posts have offered to work for free during his six-year term. Several of his proposed Cabinet members are independently wealthy.

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water – Florida scientists have discovered a new species of dogfish shark with enormous eyes.

The new species, known as Squalus clarkae, named after marine biology pioneer Eugenie Clark, lives in the deep waters off the Gulf of Mexico. It was previously thought to be part of the Squalus mitsukurii, a dogfish species in Japan, but DNA testing has proven otherwise.

"Squalus clarkae is genetically distinct from other species with significant statistical support..." the study's abtract reads.

The abstract continued: "Morphological estimates also revealed differences between S. clarkae, S. mitsukurii, and other Atlantic Squalus species, with S. clarkae exhibiting a longer body, smaller interorbital space, shorter caudal fin, and a differently-proportioned first dorsal fin."

“Deep-sea sharks are all shaped by similar evolutionary pressure, so they end up looking a lot alike,” said one of the study's authors, Florida Institute of Technology assistant professor and shark biologist Toby Daly-Engel, in a statement. “So we rely on DNA to tell us how long a species has been on its own, evolutionarily, and how different it is.”

While its eyes are certainly a noticeable feature, much different than other dogfish sharks, it is relatively small, according to LiveScience. Its body ranges between 20 and 28 inches in length.

WINCHESTER — Three-year-old Molly McCabe knew something was wrong when her daddy collapsed on the Fourth of July. What she did next saved his life.

Using her father’s smartphone, Molly contacted her mother using FaceTime, a video-calling iPhone feature.

“I actually missed her first FaceTime call,” said 29-year-old Devon McCabe, a nurse at Winchester Medical Center.

McCabe was at work in the hospital’s neurointensive care unit when Molly made the first call. Luckily, perhaps even miraculously, Molly made a second call to her mommy about 15 minutes later. “She was sobbing, crying, [saying], ‘Look at daddy, look at daddy.’”

Molly then turned the phone to show her father, Trevor McCabe, 27, convulsing on the floor of the family’s Frederick County home in Lake Holiday.

“I was immediately aware that something was wrong,” said Devon McCabe, who assured her daughter that she’d be home soon. She then called a close friend and neighbor who ran to the McCabe house and called 911.

Trevor McCabe’s collapse was completely unexpected, his wife said. He was healthy and active. The family had spent the previous evening kayaking on the lake and watching fireworks. Not even 24 hours later, he was on life support. A blood clot had traveled to a major artery in his brain, causing a stroke.

“Life can change in an instant,” Devon McCabe said Monday.

The White House on Friday had to douse another political fire resulting from the Helsinki summit after a Russian official said Vladimir Putin and President Trump discussed a possible referendum in eastern Ukraine during their private powwow.

Russia’s ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said Friday that the two leaders had discussed the possibility of a referendum in separatist-leaning eastern Ukraine.

“This issue (of a referendum) was discussed,” Antonov said, adding without specifics that Putin made “concrete proposals” to Trump on solutions for the four-year Ukraine conflict, which has killed over 10,000 people.

TAMPA, Fla. - A Pasco County mother is accused of orchestrating an elaborate fake attempted abduction of her child, and pointing the blame at a former business partner, deputies said.

Now, the mom, Tammy Steffen, is charged with child neglect, filing a false police report, and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.

Steffen, 36, of Holiday, who lists her occupation as 'trainer,' was arrested July 18, six days after the woman called the Pasco County Sheriff's Office to report that a man tried to drag her 12-year-old daughter into the woods behind the family's home, deputies said.

According to deputies, Steffens also said that she and her child were receiving threatening phone calls and messages from an unknown person.

Steffen led investigators to the woods, where they found items including a laptop cover and a notepad containing information about the woman and her child.

Steffen's daughter provided a description of the alleged abductor to investigators, and Steffen named a former business partner as a possible suspect. When shown a photo of the business partner, the 12-year-old girl identified him as the man who tried to kidnap her. She also stated she'd never seen the man prior to the abduction attempt. However, when questioned further, the girl told investigators that she'd seen a photo of the man on her mother's phone, and said Steffen was no longer friends with him, deputies said.

Investigators located the alleged abductor and established a solid alibi: video surveillance of him, in Tampa, at the time of the kidnapping attempt. Then, after reviewing Steffen's phone data, investigators found a series of messages sent by the woman, accusing the business partner of sabotaging a photo contest she'd entered, according to deputies.

A United Nations report condemning entrenched poverty in the United States is a “misleading and politically motivated” document about “the wealthiest and freest country in the world,” according to the Trump administration's ambassador to the world body.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley criticized the report for critiquing the United States' treatment of its poor, arguing that the United Nations should instead focus on poverty in developing countries such as Burundi and Congo. The U.N. report also faulted the Trump administration for pursuing policies it said would exacerbate U.S. poverty.

“It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America,” Haley wrote in a letter to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday. “In our country, the President, Members of Congress, Governors, Mayors, and City Council members actively engage on poverty issues every day. Compare that to the many countries around the world, whose governments knowingly abuse human rights and cause pain and suffering.”

The rebuke comes two days after Haley announced the United States' resignation from the U.N. Human Rights Council over that body's perceived bias against Israel and toleration of human rights abusers.

In May, U.N. special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights Philip Alston released a report saying the United States has the highest rates of youth poverty, infant mortality, incarceration, income inequality and obesity among all countries in the developed world, as well as 40 million people living in poverty. Alston accused President Trump and the Republican Congress of deepening poverty and inequality in the country, citing the Republican tax law passed last fall.

That is totally not true. Way more black are educated, not in poverty and have access to better opportunities and equality in the yes of the government.

Not really, split famileis were very common back then as well

>dad had a job while mom took care of the home,

BULL!. Black woman worked outside the home all the time. They didn't have time or the money for that housewife shit they need to make money and Black women worked as maids, cleaners and house servants and other cleaning jobs along those lines. Many Black men pre-LBJ didn't have jobs due to discrimination or being relegated to the shitty "nigger" jobs that paid like ass and in many cases paid less wages then what their wife got!

The statistics they keep citing is relative income which is absurd. A poor person in America by this statistic has the same or larger earnings as a median wage earner in most Europoor countries, including Britbongistan if I remember correctly. They also have a higher standard of living.

This is just a socialist coup attempt. They want us to implement more socialist policies so we will be as poor and miserable as they are. Remember when we lowered taxes and they complained that it would be unfair to their companies? This is the same shit. They know what they are doing.
