The matter-antimatter asymmetry problem


The Big Bang should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter in the early universe. But today, everything we see from the smallest life forms on Earth to the largest stellar objects is made almost entirely of matter. Comparatively, there is not much antimatter to be found. Something must have happened to tip the balance. One of the greatest challenges in physics is to figure out what happened to the antimatter, or why we see an asymmetry between matter and antimatter.
Antimatter particles share the same mass as their matter counterparts, but qualities such as electric charge are opposite. The positively charged positron, for example, is the antiparticle to the negatively charged electron. Matter and antimatter particles are always produced as a pair and, if they come in contact, annihilate one another, leaving behind pure energy. During the first fractions of a second of the Big Bang, the hot and dense universe was buzzing with particle-antiparticle pairs popping in and out of existence. If matter and antimatter are created and destroyed together, it seems the universe should contain nothing but leftover energy.
Nevertheless, a tiny portion of matter – about one particle per billion – managed to survive. This is what we see today. In the past few decades, particle-physics experiments have shown that the laws of nature do not apply equally to matter and antimatter. Physicists are keen to discover the reasons why. Researchers have observed spontaneous transformations between particles and their antiparticles, occurring millions of times per second before they decay. Some unknown entity intervening in this process in the early universe could have caused these "oscillating" particles to decay as matter more often than they decayed as antimatter.
Consider a coin spinning on a table. It can land on its heads or its tails, but it cannot be defined as "heads" or "tails" until it stops spinning and falls to one side. A coin has a 50-50 chance of landing on its head or its tail, so if enough coins are spun in exactly the same way, half should land on heads and the other half on tails. In the same way, half of the oscillating particles in the early universe should have decayed as matter and the other half as antimatter.
However, if a special kind of marble rolled across a table of spinning coins and caused every coin it hit to land on its head, it would disrupt the whole system. There would be more heads than tails. In the same way, some unknown mechanism could have interfered with the oscillating particles to cause a slight majority of them to decay as matter. Physicists may find hints as to what this process might be by studying the subtle differences in the behaviour of matter and antimatter particles created in high-energy proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider. Studying this imbalance could help scientists paint a clearer picture of why our universe is matter-filled.

Don't fall for this scam

11 Common Things People Lie To Themselves About & How To Stop Immediately


You might think you're being honest with yourself, but it's common to fall into the trap of some serious denial (especially when you're in the wrong). Unfortunately, there are many things people lie to themselves about, and they're also not super obvious, so it's possible to get stuck in a bad habit that's tough to break out of. It's better to be real with yourself, though, so you can always keep improving in areas that might need some work.
As a certified health coach, I work with clients on staying true to themselves and really owning their authentic power. Sometimes certain relationships or situations might make you feel less like yourself (or that you won't be accepted if you lay all the cards out); yet, it's better to realize that surrounding yourself with those who like you for all your traits and really understand who you are will benefit you and your own idea of self-worth in the long run. Plus, it's never good to be dishonest with yourself, as if you can't be true, it'll be hard to come off as a genuine person to others (no one should know you better than you know yourself, right?). So, here are 11 common lies you might tell yourself and how to quit the nasty habit.

1. That Narcissism Will Change


According to Dr. Ramani Durvasula, a therapist and professor, over email with Bustle, if you think you're not narcissistic, or that your partner isn't, but all signs point towards yes, it's better to get out, as the trait likely won't change. "If s/he is entitled, grandiose, superficial, arrogant, and lacks empathy - s/he won't change. And your love won't change them. This is an important insight before you waste months, years or decades trying to change them," Durvasula says. It sounds extreme, but it's pretty real, and it can be tough to deal with.

2. That Exercise Alone Will Make You Healthy


Of course, exercising regularly is great for your health and wellbeing, and it does aid in weight management and better heart health. Yet, it's not an excuse to eat all the cookies you want (well you could, but you might increase risk for disease). Instead, "focus on healthy nutritional calories - (no fads), fruits and vegetables, multigrains, lean proteins, healthy hydration - there are no shortcuts - so work on cleaning the cupboards and eating mindfully," suggets Durvasula.

3. That You Can "Fix" People


It's impossible (and not right) to control other people or try and "fix" their qualities that you don't necessarily appreciate, says NYC based therapist, Kimberly Hershenson, LMSW, to Bustle. "People also lie to themselves about being able to fix people. We think we can change a selfish friend or make a boyfriend stop drinking. People only change when they want to change," Hershenson adds.

4. That You Can Control Every Situation


Similar to above but in a greater context, there are some things in life you simply can't control: Being fired, the weather, a work meeting you'd rather not have but know is necessary, and more. Instead, "practice acceptance," says Hershenson. "Make a list of what you can control in the situation and what you can't control. Focus on what you can control to make change and accept what you cannot control," Hershenson recommends.

Fifteen Tips and Tricks for More Horsepower

15 Ways to More Power: From spark to exhaust, we examine easy ways to increase performance without removing the engine


Legend has it that 30 seconds after Nikolaus Otto, the German engineer credited with developing the conventional four-stroke internal-combustion engine, successfully demonstrated his invention, his buddy Deiter – who was reportedly wearing a “Der Edelbrock” patch on his oil-stained lederhosen – asked: “Can you maken zee engine mit more horsepower?”
And so it began – the eternal quest for higher performance. If you’re even only a passive enthusiast, you know that at its core, Otto’s world-changing contribution to modern civilization is an air pump. The more air that it can process, the more power the engine can make.

We qualified that description with the word “can,” because capability and fulfillment are two different things. There are many attributes to engine-performance optimization that limit an engine from fulfilling its full capability. Some of the limitations are driven by an engine’s specifications, such as its displacement, while others are driven by factors such as excessive friction or restrictions that rob horsepower.
Polling 100 different engine builders would return 100 different opinions for maximizing performance, but there are some long-established and proven methods for reducing internal losses in the engine to make the most of what it has to offer. For this story, we’ve outlined 15 of the tips and tricks that through our experiences have shown to be the most effective for enhancing performance relatively easily and cost-effectively.
Of course, options such as power-adders and stroker combinations deliver huge gains, but we gave this story parameters that limited the recommendations to non-power-adders such as supercharging and/or nitrous oxide, and changes that didn’t require removal of the engine for upgrades. That meant no stroker kits or anything like that.
With those parameters, we’ve come up with a strong list for the do-it-yourselfer, even though some of the recommendations are more involved than others. The bottom line is there is horsepower hiding under the valve covers of your Chevy’s engine. You’ve just got to dig them out!

Ignition Optimization
As Bruce Springsteen said, you can’t start a fire without a spark. It’s the very essence of combustion, so the strongest, most effective spark that can be generated in the combustion chamber will help make more horsepower. If you’ve got an older engine without a GM HEI (high energy ignition) distributor, make the conversion. You’ll also want to consider a hotter ignition coil or even a supplemental ignition box like the venerable MSD 6A-type to pick up the HEI’s known slack at higher rpm. And here’s a tip for those running an LS engine: Unless you’re nearing the 1,000-horsepower level, there’s no need to change the stock ignition coils. They’re good as-is.



Trump can't be trusted to protect America. What will it take for Republicans to impeach?

House Speaker Paul Ryan says he's willing to consider additional sanctions on Russia, but stopped short of a direct congressional response to President Donald Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. (July 17) AP

Republicans protested Donald Trump’s treasonous Helsinki performance but was it false outrage? Don't believe the words unless they follow up with action.

Republicans in Congress have mastered the art of pretending to be outraged with President Donald Trump without actually doing anything meaningfully to stop him.
Remember when Trump blamed “both sides” for the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville last summer? House Speaker Paul Ryan said at a CNN forum that the president’s “morally ambiguous” statements were “wrong.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the point that “there are no good neo-Nazis.” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio challenged Trump by tweeting, “Mr. President, you can’t allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame.”
In January, when Trump expressed frustration with people coming to the U.S. from “shithole countries,” Ryancalled the remarks “very unfortunate.” South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott said they were “disappointing to say the least.” Ohio Sen. Rob Portman described them as “wrong and indefensible.” Wisconsin Sen. Ron Jonson said they were “totally inappropriate and he should apologize.”

Trump always sides with Russia

On Monday, standing next to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump declared that “the United States has been foolish … I think we’re all to blame” for the decline in U.S. relations with Russia.
In an indictment filed Friday by special prosecutor Robert Mueller, Russia was found to perpetrate a conspiracy for the explicit intent to “interfere with the 2016 presidential election.”
And yet, Trump, standing next to the very man who orchestrated this assault on our democracy, used his platform to attack the investigation and Robert Mueller — dismissing the probe as “ridiculous” and pointedly defending Putin and Russia directly.  “I don’t see any reason why it would be” that Russia interfered in our elections," he said. Trump even sided with Putin over his own appointed intelligence director: “President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.”
Right on cue, Republicans sounded the rhetorical alarm.
“I disagree with the president’s comments. There is simply no comparing the actions of the United States and Vladimir Putin,” said House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce. Ryan urged Trump to “appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia ... ”
McConnell pointedly said, “The Russians are not our friends and I entirely agree with the assessment of our intelligence community.” Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeted, “Missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russia accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections … ” Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, reminded Trump that “Russia is not our friend."
This is the same Trey Gowdy who held a hearing just last week for the explicit purpose of trying todiscredit FBI agent Peter Strzok and the Mueller investigation. These are the same Republicans who introduced a resolution in May to end to that investigation. Rep. Louie Gohmert, who was center stage at Gowdy’s anti-FBI hearing, has called for a second special counsel to investigate Mueller. In May, Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy called on Mueller to wrap up his probe.

What will it take for Republicans to impeach?

The irony is that if the Mueller probe had been terminated as many Republicans have demanded, we would not know the full extent and scope of Russia’s efforts to undermine our elections. If Republicans are sincere in their statements about Trump’s treasonous performance in Helsinki on Monday, they need to do more than just issue statements.
If the president of the U.S. cannot be trusted to act in the best interests of our country, then it falls on the Congress to step in and do what is necessary to protect the republic. Words aren’t enough. Statements and tweets will not deter Putin from continuing to try and contaminate our electoral process. Trump has shown that he is either incapable or unwilling to do what is necessary to protect our nation from harm. The solution is very simple, and it’s one Republicans would not have hesitated to invoke if the same sequence of events had occurred under President Barack Obama.
How much more harm needs to come to the United States of America before Republicans in Congress impeach Donald Trump?

Trump is dead on about fake news. *1st Update

****I don't like Trump but I don't like any presidents and I have valid reasons.



 I lived in all 3 locations for over 3 years and the same rules apply > Don't wear jewelry, don't flash cash, don't get drunk and travel alone at night and for gosh sakes don't use or buy drugs.
 Sounds like "anywhere" USA to me.

*Now Trump is considering possible military intervention, America got their asses kicked the last time it tried that and after work I'll edit this post again as to how Ortega came to power.

Would you like to grow your website or blog audience worldwide?

*This is a paid service which I provide as an SEO professional.






This is a short excerpt that shows why I'll always be single

 This is typical of my net chats.


 Amy >

 Hi, what's up? I have no cable. Nor do I have internet. All my online activities are performed through my phone. This site is my only social media - no FB, Snapchat, Twitter, Kik, Instagram - none of those things. I am oblivious about what is happening in the world most days. I'm content just knowing what's happening in mine, especially during the summer. It's a nice mental break from the school year.

Myself > 

 Amazingly "your world" is the only world that exists....to you. It's the only world that any of us have as we are all in prison = no one can escape "their on perception". 
 As far as your have "nots', that was my goal from abut 07'. I was very successful at living with less overseas yet I must have the net because that's my portal to employment, contracts and my social. 
 As far as being oblivious to the outside world, everyone one is by the same law. If I were to line 100 people on a sidewalk and stage an automobile accident, I'd get 100 various accounts on what exactly happened. Give each one a lie detector and you might not even have any liars with the 100 different stories = trapped within their own perceptions.
I have a very hard time discerning ignorance from indoctrinated values as well as the brainwashed? I also can grasp that many just don't like to think, it's a burden, not a joy. 
That's where I turn "my" tide, I love to think, the more complex, the more I like it. 
 Lastly, "Intelligence", in the macrocosm there's really no such thing as it only exists in the microcosm. Every man woman and child has an octave that they vibrate/think at. There's a person that can pick buttercups better than anyone on the planet yet she's not recognized because her gift is un-needed in this world. There's a total dick that can do surgery and this society says that's important so he/she is idolized and given a fat check. Always grasp that your eyes lie and your mind can get "closer" to the truth. None of us "know" anything because our "perceptions" through sensory organs, synapses, dendrites, neuro transmitters, etc. won't allow us to see things as they really are. "I know that I know one thing, I know nothing" (And understand even less) = Socratic Paradox

A Phone Based Website

 Anyone that knows me fully grasps that I hate phones with a passion! One of my drivers is from Chekoslavakia and a really nice guy so when he asked me to build him a phone formatted website I bent my rules.
 There's a bit more work to this but that's ok, it will be reflected in his invoice. An hour into this and I can live with the framework. (I'll never use a phone to get on the net)

Yes, it's going to be an escort service, not my circus, not my monkey.

One World Government Quote—David Rockefeller

I don't know but I gave iot avoice.

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the new world order.” David Rockefeller
One of the 13 Satanic bloodlines that rule the world is the Rockefeller bloodline. Today, there are around 190 members of this family with the Rockefeller name, and many more related by other last names.
  • They provide a large share of the money that Seminaries in the United States need to operate
  • They provide a large share of the money that universities need to operate. Education influences the religious values of our people
  • They provide large grants to various religious organizations
  • Their influence and control helps determine who will get publicity in the major news magazines, and on television
  • Their influence has contributed to various anti-Christian organizations being set up
  • They directly help control certain religious groups such as Lucis Trust
  • The Rockefeller’s influence is both subtle and not so subtle
A one World government is the notion of a single common political authority for all of humanity. Political leaders and influential people have written and spoken of a “one world government” for several centuries that dates back to the formation of the occult branch of the Illuminati. The Illuminati (not to be confused with the Bavarian Illuminati) is a very secretive group of occult practitioners who have a history from the very beginning of the homo sapiens and use Symbolism, Numerology, Black Magic, Voodoo, and the Jewish Cabala to deceive, oppress, and to draw energy from the population of the earth. It is not a boys’ club or a group of adults trying to get some excitement in life; this is something much bigger and much more sinister. It is an extremely well structured organization consisting of people in very High Places. Those people are the Super Wealthy, who stand above the law. Many of them don’t even appear on the list of the wealthiest people in the world—they are that secret. What is driving them is power, money and control over life and death of others and themselves.

A One World Government is being implemented gradually through the formation of the U.S. Federal Reserve System in 1913; the League of Nations in 1919; the International Monetary Fund in 1944; the United Nations in 1945; the World Bank in 1945; the World Health Organization in 1948; the European Union and the euro currency in 1993; the World Trade Organization in 1998; the African Union in 2002; and the Union of South American Nations in 2008 as major milestones. The hypothetical North American Union and the amero currency, proposed by the Council on Foreign Relations and its counterparts in Mexico and Canada, could be the next implementation of the One World Government. Many believe that a group of shadowy and mostly nameless international elites are planning to replace the federal government of the United States with a transnational government. Therefore, conspiracy theorists believe the borders between Mexico, Canada and the United States are in the process of being erased, covertly, by a group of globalists whose ultimate goal is to replace national governments in Washington, D.C., Ottawa and Mexico City with a European-style political union and a bloated E.U. style bureaucracy.
All these unions will assist the one world government once the occult of the darkness pursues their agenda to deceive humanity through an alien war. The only possible solution is to create a solid reason why the world would benefit through a One World Government; war is always the perfect reason. When all the nations gather to fight for the survival of the human species against the staged alien war and miraculously win through the Antichrist, all the deluded humans will accept the one world government that includes a one world currency and religion. The children of the light will discern the egocentric wickedness and will non-volently oppose t is always the perfect reason the The children of the light will discern the egocentric wickedness and will non-volently oppose the One World Government.

The Possible Time Table of Events:

  1. The Master of the Darkness (Antichrist) entered his host human body around November 1 2010. The Number 7 is a Divine number of complement.
  2. The Anointing of the Master of the Darkness should occur at the 2012 Olympics through an occult ritual.
  3. The activation of the New World Order on 12/21/2012.
  4. The Staged Alien War should begin around Spring of 2013 or 2014 at the latest. My guess is between April 20 and May 1 2013.
  5. The Alien war should last long enough to cause trauma among humanity. My guess is that the war should end around mid 2015.
  6. From 2015 through 2018 (3.5 years of tribulation) the New World Order will be fully activated and the children of the darkness will seek to murder any and all people who oppose.
  7. Around the end of 2018 or 2019 Yeshua (Jesus) will arrive in the glory of the Divine to reduce the children of the darkness into their enslaved kingdom of darkness which will be underground.
The Jews received their nation in 1948. Since having a nation, but no temple puts Judaism in exile. The exile is to be 70 years such as when Solomon’s temple was destroyed in 586 BCE and then the temple was rebuilt in 516 BCE. Judaism will seek to build their temple for the One World Government in 2018.

Quick Tips on Cyber Security

 Before I share this information do yourself a Big favor by Not storing personal information on net devices or in a friggin Cloud. Create a very simple code such as using "A" for the number "1" and "Z" for "10", etc. Take this type of sensitive information and save it on PAPER! Old school beats new school hands down in this instance.


ISP's "Top 10" List of Secure Computing Tips

Tip #1 - You are a target to hackers

Don't ever say "It won't happen to me".  We are all at risk and the stakes are high - to your personal and financial well-being, and to the University's standing and reputation. 
  • Keeping campus computing resources secure is everyone's responsibility.
  • By following the tips below and remaining vigilent, you are doing your part to protect yourself and others.

Tip #2 - Keep software up to date

Installing software updates for your operating system and programs is critical. Always install the latest security updates for your devices:
  • Turn on Automatic Updates for your operating system.
  • Use web browsers such as Chrome or Firefox that receive frequent, automatic security updates.
  • Make sure to keep browser plug-ins (Flash, Java, etc.) up to date.
  • Utilize Secunia PSI (free) to find other software on your computer that needs to be updated.

Tip #3 - Avoid Phishing scams - beware of suspicious emails and phone calls

Phishing scams are a constant threat - using various social engineering(link is external) ploys, cyber criminals will attempt to trick you into divulging personal information such as your login ID and password, banking or credit card information.
  • Phishing scams can be carried out by phone, text, or through social networking sites - but most commonly by email.
  • Be suspicious of any official-looking email message or phone call that asks for personal or financial information.
Check out our Phishing Resources section for details about identifying phishing scams and protecting yourself.

Tip #4 - Practice good password management

We all have too many passwords to manage - and it's easy to take short-cuts, like reuseing the same password.  A password management program(link is external) can help you to maintain strong unique passwords for all of your accounts.  These programs can generate strong passwords for you, enter credentials automatically, and remind you to update your passwords periodically. 
There are several online password management services that offer free versions, and KeePass(link is external) is a free application for Mac and Windows.
Here are some general password tips to keep in mind:
  • Use long passwords - 20 characters or more is recommended.
  • Use a strong mix of characters, and never use the same password for multiple sites.
  • Don't share your passwords and don't write them down (especially not on a post-it note attached to your monitor).
  • Update your passwords periodically, at least once every 6 months (90 days is better).
The Protecting Your Credentials how-to article contains detailed recommendations for keeping your password safe.

Tip #5 -  Be careful what you click

Avoid visiting unknown websites or downloading software from untrusted sources.  These sites often host malware that will automatically, and often silently, compromise your computer.
If attachments or links in email are unexpected or suspicious for any reason, don't click on it.
ISP recommends using Click-to-Play or NoScript(link is external), browser add-on features that prevent the automatic download of plug-in content (e.g., Java, Flash) and scripts that can harbor malicious code.

Tip #6 - Never leave devices unattended

The physical security of your devices is just as important as their technical security. 
  • If you need to leave your laptop, phone, or tablet for any length of time - lock it up so no one else can use it. 
  • If you keep sensitive information on a flash drive or external hard drive, make sure to keep these locked as well. 
  • For desktop computers, shut-down the system when not in use - or lock your screen.

Tip #7 - Protect sensitive data

Be aware of sensitive data that you come into contact with, and associated restrictions - review the UCB Data Classification Standard to understand data protection level requirements.  In general:
  • Keep sensitive data (e.g., SSN's, credit card information, student records, health information, etc.) off of your workstation, laptop, or mobile devices.
  • Securely remove sensitive data files from your system when they are no longer needed.
  • Always use encryption when storing or transmitting sensitive data.
Unsure how to store or handle sensitive data?  Contact us and ask!

Tip #8 - Use mobile devices safely

Considering how much we rely on our mobile devices, and how susceptible they are to attack, you'll want to make sure you are protected:
  • Lock your device with a PIN or password - and never leave it unprotected in public.
  • Only install apps from trusted sources.
  • Keep your device's operating system updated.
  • Don't click on links or attachments from unsolicited emails or texts.
  • Avoid transmitting or storing personal information on the device.
  • Most handheld devices are capable of employing data encryption - consult your device's documentation for available options.
  • Use Apple's Find my iPhone(link is external) or the Android Device Manager(link is external) tools to help prevent loss or theft.
  • Backup your data.

Tip #9 - Install anti-virus protection

Only install an anti-virus program from a known and trusted source.  Keep virus definitions, engines and software up to date to ensure your anti-virus program remains effective.
For personally-owned systems and unmanaged UCB owned computers, the campus offers free anti-virus software,available for Windows and Mac, to current faculty, staff, and students.

Tip #10 - Back up your data

Back up on a regular basis - if you are a victim of a security incident, the only guaranteed way to repair your computer is to erase and re-install the system.

Here are some additional tips to help keep you safe and secure online:

  • Use a firewall - Mac and Windows have basic desktop firewalls as part of their operating system that can help protect your computer from external attacks.
  • Use public wireless hot-spots wisely - follow these tips(link is external) for staying safe.
  • Be conscientious of what you plug in to your computer (flash drives and even smart phones can contain malware).
  • Be careful of what you share on social networking sites.
  • Monitor your accounts for suspicious activity.
  • Bank or shop online only on trusted devices and networks - and logout of these sites when you've completed your transactions.
