‘Milestone’ Evidence for Anyons, a Third Kingdom of Particles
Every last particle in the universe — from a cosmic ray to a quark — is either a fermion or a boson. These categories divide the building blocks of nature into two distinct kingdoms. Now researchers have discovered the first examples of a third particle kingdom.

Anyons, as they’re known, don’t behave like either fermions or bosons; instead, their behavior is somewhere in the middle. In a recent paper published in Science, physicists have found the first experimental evidence that these particles don’t fit into either kingdom. “We had bosons and fermions, and now we’ve got this third kingdom,” said Frank Wilczek, a Nobel prize–winning physicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It’s absolutely a milestone.”

In China, McDonald’s serving Spam burger topped with Oreo crumbs: ‘When you hate someone but have to invite him to dinner.’
BEIJING — McDonald’s is selling a sandwich made of Spam topped with crushed Oreo cookies Monday in China in an attention-grabbing move that has raised eyebrows.

Global brands from restaurants to automakers sometimes roll out offbeat products to appeal to Chinese tastes in the populous and intensely competitive market.

This is undoubtedly one of them.
“I thought it was delicious,” said a comment signed Feifei Mao Enthusiast on the Sina Weibo microblog service. “Is that because I love McDonald’s too deeply? Or is something wrong with my taste?”

McDonald’s Corp. said the sandwich was part of a series of “members only” promotions to be released on Mondays in China.

New superhighway system discovered in the Solar System
Researchers have discovered a new superhighway network to travel through the Solar System much faster than was previously possible. Such routes can drive comets and asteroids near Jupiter to Neptune's distance in under a decade and to 100 astronomical units in less than a century. They could be used to send spacecraft to the far reaches of our planetary system relatively fast, and to monitor and understand near-Earth objects that might collide with our planet.

In their paper, published in the Nov. 25 issue of Science Advances, the researchers observed the dynamical structure of these routes, forming a connected series of arches inside what's known as space manifolds that extend from the asteroid belt to Uranus and beyond. This newly discovered "celestial autobahn" or "celestial highway" acts over several decades, as opposed to the hundreds of thousands or millions of years that usually characterize Solar System dynamics.

The most conspicuous arch structures are linked to Jupiter and the strong gravitational forces it exerts. The population of Jupiter-family comets (comets having orbital periods of 20 years) as well as small-size solar system bodies known as Centaurs, are controlled by such manifolds on unprecedented time scales. Some of these bodies will end up colliding with Jupiter or being ejected from the Solar System.

The structures were resolved by gathering numerical data about millions of orbits in our Solar System and computing how these orbits fit within already-known space manifolds. The results need to be studied further, both to determine how they could be used by spacecraft, or how such manifolds behave in the vicinity of the Earth, controlling the asteroid and meteorite encounters, as well as the growing population of artificial human-made objects in the Earth-Moon system.

Alaska Airlines becomes first major US airline to announce emotional support animal ban
“This is a wonderful step in the right direction for people like myself who are dependent on and reliant on legitimate service animals,” said Albert Rizzi, founder of My Blind Spot, an advocacy group for people with disabilities, at the time. He said some people “want to have the benefits of having a disability without actually losing the use of their limbs or senses just so they can take their pet with them.”

Flight attendants had pushed to rein in support animals, and they too were in favor of the rule.

“The days of Noah’s Ark in the air are hopefully coming to an end,” said Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants. She said some of her union’s members were hurt by untrained pets.

Like how we're not allowed to tell a tard wrangler to calm its raging downy down, we're not allowed to treat ESAs like animals either.

Actually most rappers are murdered, and recently some young rappers have died of accidental overdose, not different from other pop and rock artists, but this is a 49 year old man we're talking about who faced two big losses in his life. It wouldn't be far fetched to think that he killed himself because of the agony.

>Mortality in American Hip-Hop and Rap Recording Artists, 1987-2014


>The most commonly reported cause of death was homicide. The 280 deaths were categorized as homicide (55%), unintentional injury (13%), cardiovascular (7%), undetermined/undisclosed (7%), cancer (6%), other (5%), suicide (4%), and infectious disease (3%). The mean reported age at death was 30 yrs (range 15-75) and the median was 29 yrs; 97% were male and 92% were black. All but one of the homicides were committed with firearms.


>Homicide was the most commonly reported cause of death. Public health focus and guidance for hip-hop and rap recording artists should mirror that for African-American men and adolescent males ages 15-54 yrs, for whom the leading causes of death are homicide, unintentional injury, and heart disease. Given the preponderance of homicide deaths in this analysis, premature mortality reduction efforts should focus on violence prevention and conflict mitigation.

Earth's rotation sped up in 2020, we may need a "negative leap second"
Another weird thing about 2020: The planet sped up.

The planet's rotational speed often drifts around slightly, depending on changes in wind, ocean currents, or the sloshing around of the Earth's molten core. But for the last few decades, generally this produced a microscopic slowing of the rotation. The upshot of that is that every year and a half (or so), we've needed to add a "leap second" to the atomic clock.

But in 2020, the opposite happened — we had the 28 fastest days on record since 1960. This sped up the planet's rotation so much that the Time Lords in charge of clocks on our planet are considering adding a "negative leap second": They will remove time.

Not quite Tenet, but I'm super excited nonetheless. As Live Science writes:

"It's quite possible that a negative leap second will be needed if the Earth's rotation rate increases further, but it's too early to say if this is likely to happen," physicist Peter Whibberley of the National Physics Laboratory in the U.K., told The Telegraph. "There are also international discussions taking place about the future of leap seconds, and it's also possible that the need for a negative leap second might push the decision towards ending leap seconds for good."

Euler: a mathematician without equal and an overall nice guy
The vast body of mathematics owes more to Euler than to any other single person. His achievements cover an enormous range and underlie all major branches of mathematics. In 1911, scholars began publishing his collected works.

His Opera Omnia includes some 900 articles, many of great profundity, written in German, French and Latin. With 80 volumes so far, this project is only now nearing completion.

Euler revolutionised mathematics, greatly extending its boundaries. He was inexhaustible: no other mathematician has been so prolific. His work embraces calculus, differential geometry, number theory and infinite series. In physics, he made major contributions to analytical mechanics and hydrodynamics. He laid the foundations for several new branches of mathematics: graph theory, the calculus of variations and partial differential equations.

Many results attributed to other mathematicians are to be found in Euler’s works. He had a major influence on mathematics through the 19th century, and continues to inspire mathematicians today. His textbooks remained as essential sources for a century or more.

I had no idea Phil was born in the 1800s. Amazing!
A gloomy Groundhog Day: Punxsutawney Phil says more winter
PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. – There will be six more weeks of winter, Punxsutawney Phil predicted as he emerged from his burrow on a snowy Tuesday morning to perform his Groundhog Day duties…

The annual event has its origin in a German legend about a furry rodent. Records dating to the late 1800s show Phil has predicted longer winters more than 100 times. The 2020 forecast called for an early spring — however, Phil didn't say anything about a pandemic.

According to records dating back to 1887, Phil has predicted winter more than 100 times, the club said. Ten years were lost because no records were kept.

Punxsutawney Phil may be the most famous groundhog seer but he's certainly not the only one. There are two other high-profile “imposters,” as the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club calls them, in the region.

Connecticut marked Groundhog Day with a hedgehog making the prediction after the state’s official groundhog, Chuckles X, died last year. Like Phil, Phoebe predicted another six weeks of winter after seeing its shadow at the Lutz Children’s Museum in Manchester.

Members of Phil's “inner circle” woke up the furry critter at 7:25 a.m. at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to see whether he would see his shadow or not.

I've taken an interest in Dr Michael Burry, the autistic guy who predicted the 2007 housing crisis. He also just made hundreds of millions off of Gamestop stock, which he started buying back in 2019. Now he is betting against Tesla. It'll be interesting to see if he's right again.

>>262997
You're ignoring all the times Burry has been wrong and the relatively poor performance of his Scion Capital fund post the housing market crash. He was one of many people who predicted that but he actually didn't do as well because he was very early, yet he still somehow enjoys the lion's share of the credit. Burry also didn't predict the GME short squeeze, it was a value play for him and earlier this year the stock was basically cheaper than their intrinsic value based on cash on hand and their other assets. It was a popular play among value investors.

For a number a reasons Tesla shouldn't be equated to the greater EV bubble. Their technology lead and greater economy of scale means they'll enjoy Apple like margins for the foreseeable future so they should trade a premium compared to the other EV and the traditional manufacturers but ultimately it's more a bet on what will become the trillion dollar autonomous vehicle industry and the rapidly dropping price of battery storage enabling the quick adoption of renewable energy. You see it's not just a matter of having the best self-driving, it has to be deployed at scale cheaply because there will be a switching cost for users, the company with the most robotaxis on the road will be more efficient in passenger pickups and dropoffs so they'll be able to outcompete the rest. They have to use EVs because of lower operating costs, any expensive technology like LiDAR eats into their margins, and they need to have the batteries to produce the vehicles in the first place which could be the greatest problem of all because already manufacturers are pushing back their EVs because they can't find enough batteries. Tesla is the natural leader in this area and that is without getting into their technical lead and all the data they've accumulated. They allow the owner of the car to take full liability for the autopilot and this protects them from the regulators as they develop it, unlike companies like Uber that shut down their self-driving for years after hitting someone.

Anyway, this puts a floor on the price that the other companies don't have. I don't necessarily like it at this price but I would be very surprised to see TSLA at $500 again, which is still greater than where Burry started shorting, let alone $100. Eventually autonomous driving means way fewer vehicles on the road and most of the manufacturers will go out of business. The main competitors like Ford and GM are in trouble because they're going to have greatly decreased margins trying to produce EVs that can compare with Tesla while their ICE business will be in terminal decline.

I hope the "lockdown" goes on forever, my apartment has never been this quiet and I can actually sleep without ear plugs because normalscum arent getting drunk to their trash plebeian music, that of course has to sound at 100 decibel because this degenerate art cant be enjoyed on a relaxed evening among a good wine or whiskey, it gotta trash their ears as they ruin the rests of their pea brains through drugs and alcohol with their equally moronic friends.
The only thing inconveniencing me is that my Unis library is closed and online classes suck for certain courses, but thats a sacrifice I am willing to make if normalscum has to suffer and leave me alone. Whoever vows to extend and stricten this "lockdown" has my vote and I will be telling on any little fucker assembling in a group or not carrying the mask.

What kind of earplugs do you use? I fear of earwax blockages or them going inside my ears.

The last member of the Wailers has died at 73

>Bunny Wailer, a founding member of the Wailers and a reggae music giant whose career spanned seven decades, has died at the age of 73.


>Wailer, born Neville Livingstone — before adopting his famous moniker, he was also known as Bunny Livingstone — was a member of the original Wailers trio with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.


>Born April 10th, 1947, in the Nine Mile district of Jamaica’s St. Ann Parish, Livingstone was a friend of Marley from a young age; following the death of Marley’s father, Norval, in 1955, Marley’s mother, Cedella, lived with

Livingstone’s father, Thaddeus, in Trench Town, making Bunny and Bob near-stepbrothers.

>While Marley and Livingstone were being mentored by Joe Higgs, “the Godfather of Reggae,” they met Higgs’ fellow student Peter Tosh; the then-trio ventured to Kingston. Soon after, they were joined by singer Junior Braithwaite and backup vocalists Beverley Kelso and Cherry Smith. Following a string of name changes that included the Teenagers and the Wailing Wailers, the Wailers aligned with Coxsone Dodd’s sound system and Studio One label — which employed songwriters and producers like Lee “Scratch” Perry and Jackie Mittoo — and released the Marley-penned “Simmer Down,” a Number One hit in Jamaica.


>Braithwaite, Kelso, and Smith soon departed the Wailers, leaving the nucleus of Marley, Livingstone, and Tosh intact; that trio recorded the band’s debut LP, 1965’s The Wailing Wailers, a collection of tracks the band recorded during the mid-Sixties. The Wailers then went on hiatus as Marley married his wife Rita and joined his mother in Wilmington, Delaware; during this period, Livingstone served a yearlong sentence for marijuana possession. However, the three principle Wailers reunited upon Marley’s return to Jamaica.


>While Marley and Tosh served as the Wailers’ primary singers and songwriters, Livingstone played an indispensable role in providing harmonies to the trio’s songs. The Wailers next teamed with Perry and his Upsetters for 1970’s Soul Rebels and 1971’s Soul Revolution; around that time, Livingstone wrote and recorded one of his signature songs, “Dreamland,” a track he revisited when he released his solo LP Blackheart Man in 1976.


>A collection of Wailers songs the trio recorded for producer Leslie Kong’s Beverley’s label was released as Best of the Wailers in 1971. By then, thanks largely to the success of reggae acts like Toots and the Maytals and Jimmy Cliff, Jamaican music found an international audience, and the Wailers embarked on a U.K. tour with American reggae singer Johnny Nash.


>In 1972, the Wailers signed with producer Chris Blackwell and his Island Records, resulting in their 1973 classic and major-label debut, Catch a Fire. Although the album and its similarly landmark follow-up, 1973’s Burnin’, helped propel the Wailers to international fame, following the release of Burnin’, both Tosh and Wailer left the group as Blackwell sought to diminish their roles and rebrand the Wailers as Marley’s backing group, as well as scheduling a tour of the U.S. that tested Tosh and Wailer’s strict Rastafarian faith. After resigning, Wailer was briefly replaced by Higgs when the Catch a Fire Tour did come to America in the spring of 1973. Catch a Fire was later ranked Number 126 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums list, with Burnin’ placing Number 319.


>Following his exit from the Wailers, Livingstone — now known as Bunny Wailer — began work on his solo album Blackheart Man; while he took a backseat creatively in the Wailers, the LP allowed Wailer to establish himself as his own artist, with Wailer writing, producing, and singing lead on the entirety of Blackheart Man, which also featured contributions from Wailers band mainstays and reggae legends like Sly and Robbie and Aston “Family Man” Barrett. The album included songs like “Dreamland” and “Burning Down Sentence,” which was inspired by his prison stint.


>“The tracks that were done in Blackheart Man were very symbolic and significant to this whole development of reggae music,” Wailer told Reggaeville in 2017. “I really consider Blackheart Man to be one of those albums that the universal reggae world should be focused on.”


>Blackheart Man marked the beginning of a prolific and fruitful solo career for Wailer, who would win the Grammy for Best Reggae Album three times in the Nineties, for 1991’s Time Will Tell: A Tribute to Bob Marley, 1995’s Crucial! Roots Classics, and the 1997’s all-star Hall of Fame: A Tribute to Bob Marley’s 50th Anniversary.


>Reflecting on his career in 2016, Wailer told Afropop, “The Wailers are responsible for the Wailers sound. Bob, Peter, and myself: We are totally responsible for the Wailers sound, and what the Wailers brought to the world, and left as a legacy.”

Not really at all.

What is heartless is the public I agree but can you fault the people investing in a commercial product for not wanting to take a risk with their investment by having a host who they feel the shallow public might not enjoy?
