Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

More on CERN, the LHC and Higgs

There is a good article today in the London Daily Telegraph on a variety of topics: there is an interview with Professor Higgs himself and also a report saying that there has been a "difference of opinion" in that Prof. Higgs has criticised Prof. Stephen Hawking, saying that his work is not quite up to scratch: "My understanding is he puts together theories in particle physics with gravity... in a way which no theoretical particle physicist would believe is the correct theory."

Here's a video that includes the interview:

Now, here's a statement from Prof. Hawking:

Both of these videos came from the Daily Telegraph, which I think has done a splendid job with its coverage of this very important project.

Until the next time
