Google, Yahoo and GiggleYohoo

Google Inc. -- American company specializing in Internet search and advertising, based in Mountain View, California. Google’s name derives from the word googol, the mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. The company’s use of the term reflects its business mission to index the seemingly infinite amount of information on the World Wide Web and make it universally accessible. Google has become so popular that its name is often used as a verb; to “google” something means to search for it on the Internet.Google’s search engine service is free and easy to use, and usually returns relevant results in a fraction of a second. The company’s principal source of revenue is advertising. Google provides advertisers with the opportunity to deliver measurable, cost-effective online advertising relevant to the information displayed on any given Web page.Google was founded by computer scientists Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who first met in 1995 at Stanford University in California, where they were both studying for doctorates in computer science. Brin and Page were interested in finding a unique approach to retrieving relevant information from a massive set of data. Their first search engine technology was developed in their university dormitory and released in 1996. It was called BackRub, named for its ability to analyze the “back links” pointing to a given Web site. Also known as PageRank, the unique contribution that Page and Brin made to search applications was to rank Web sites on the basis of the number of other Web sites that linked to them as well as the number of links that linked into the linking sites. PageRank was based on the assumption that sites with the greatest number of links were more likely to offer the best and most relevant information for a given search term.

Yahoo! Inc. -- Major global Internet search engine, based in Sunnyvale, California. Launched in 1995, Yahoo! was the first online navigational guide to the World Wide Web. It began as a student hobby and evolved into a global brand, used freely by millions of people. Its principal source of revenue is from advertising. Yahoo! also offers a comprehensive network of online services for Web users, including free e-mail and instant messaging, chat rooms, maps and driving directions, spam filters, and virus scanners.Yahoo! was created by David Filo and Jerry Yang while both were studying electrical engineering at Stanford University in California. In February 1994 they set up a Web site that listed other Web sites, in order to keep track of their personal interests on the Internet. A broader, public need for a single place to find useful Web sites soon became clear, and word spread from friends to what quickly became a significant and loyal audience within the closely knit Internet community.The lists Filo and Yang devised soon became too long and unwieldy, and so they introduced categories, and then subcategories, thus creating a customized database that is the basic concept of Yahoo! Filo and Yang also developed software to help them efficiently locate, identify, and edit material stored on the Internet. By the autumn of 1994 Yahoo! was receiving 1 million page views per day.

GiggleYohoo -- a dummy site owned, designed and modified by intel828c, based in Davao City, Philippines but not made in China. The site was activated on December 14, 2008. GiggleYohoo was transformed and derived from the names of two gigantic search engines, Google and Yahoo. The owner has intention neither to ruin the two gigantic sites nor to compete with. Hahaha. Honestly, the owner loves the two gigantic search engines. The owner is a simple true filipino, a part time blogger and a full time jobless engineer. GiggleYohoo is a site where fun and excitement get connected. Let us laugh and shout with GiggleYohoo.

Google's Invisibility Cloak

A percentage of Google traffic is stripped of identifying information. Why?Google likes to portray itself as a company that does everything in the open. But it appears that at least some of its employees are harboring a secret.
Web researcher Net Applications recently discovered that between 11% to 30% of traffic streaming out of Google's Mountain View, Calif., office is stripped clean of the usual identifying information that accompanies such traffic. That begs the question: What secret is it that Google doesn't want the rest of the Web to know?

Blackstone Gets Into Clean Tech

BURLINGAME, Calif.--Amid the uncertainty of the financial markets, private equity giant Blackstone Group is getting into clean tech. Its first investment: Coskata, an Illinois start-up that says it can make next-generation ethanol from non-food sources for approximately $1 a gallon.
Coskata, which announced the investment Friday, did not disclose how much it raised in its third round of financing, but the company is said to have raised $40 million from Blackstone and other investors.

My first Sony experience is with my Sony Digital Handycam

Nowadays, there are plenty of products and technologies. Sony evolves into more interesting stuffs from electric rice cooker, first magnetic recorder, first transistor radio, Trinitron colour TV, Walkman personal stereo, Handycam videocamera, Playstation, Blu-ray Disc recorder to Playstation 3.

Furthermore, three (3) years ago my sister bought me a Sony handycam because I love photography. She surprised me with this stuff. I could not believe she had an expensive birthday present for me. I am very blessed having a sister like her whose been working abroad. She can buy precious gifts for her brother. hehehe

On the other hand, I considered my Sony digital handycam as one of the best gadget of Sony products. I’m using this stuff for 3 years and still keep on working. My Sony handycam is my bread and butter. Somehow, it gives me some ways of gaining more friends. For every successful shot comes a humble smile. Although, those videos I made were just part of my hobbies as a novice “videographer”, it keeps on reminding me to become more enthusiastic and progressive. I am learning more with this product, thus, giving me extra miles to pursue my dedication. Nice right? Good job to my Sony handycam.

Moreover, my handycam taught me how to embrace and value the unforgettable moments of my life. I would simply say that Sony technology help change our lives for the better. By the way, the soundtrack I made as background to my entry, entitled "Hands Down" says that Sony is a technology that we should praise for making our lives easier like no other.

Those clips you have seen were taken by me. I am neither a professional photographer nor a video editor. I just love photo editing and doing some motion cuts. Eventually, learning is a power of fulfilling our dreams comes true. Well, the 18th birthday of my friend was taken by my Sony handycam. I captured and edited those happy moments they had on her birthday, yet all of the captured events were all precious. I am glad being part of my friend’s party as a cameraman. hehehe. I made them all happy because of the movie I did for them. Thanks to my Sony handycam. The priceless moments will never be vanished.
Consequently, a friend of mine asked me to record some clips of their friends from New York. I refused his request because I was not ready to take a shot. He said it would be okay, the important is that they will have something to bring and remember when they go back home. Then, I recorded some clips of the boy named Kesnel. As you can see on the video clips, the boy is holding some roosters and taking photos to some pigs. Kesnel, a boy from New York had much fun of those animals he saw and touched. I could not imagine how much he liked animals. Anyway, animals like live pigs and roosters are rare to them. Hence, if I have a chance to be in the US, I would love and appreciate also seeing wild animals in Bronx Zoo, New York such as bears and lions. I rarely see said animals here except if you will pay for an entrance fee in the zoo. New York? Huhh! How I wish I could go there with them, not with the animals. lolz.

Nevertheless, if you want to treasure valuable moments together with your family, do not forget to bring along with your Sony digital camera or a handycam. Otherwise, you will be missing half of your life. My Sony Handycam experience definitely gave significance in my life just like the Sony’s World’s First Smallest, Lightest and Slimmest Full HD Camcorder: TG1 Handycam, another amazing gadget which will help me capture more precious moments for my friends, relatives and love ones.

Hacking Airport Wi-Fi

Richard Farina booted up his computer on an American Airlines flight in October from New York to San Francisco. It was one of the first commercial flights to offer wireless Internet service. Within a couple minutes of reaching 10,000 feet, Farina was snooping the airwaves with the ability to see what his fellow passengers were doing without having to leave his cramped middle seat.
Farina isn't a bad guy. He was just doing his job as a so-called white-hat hacker for AirTight Networks, a manufacturer of wireless intrusion protection hardware and software. AirTight's chief executive, David King, sends hackers out for unsolicited security assessments. Earlier this year he dispatched Farina and a few other of his 100-plus employees to collect wireless security data at 20 U.S. airports and a few abroad. They found rampant phony Wi-Fi hot spots created by phishers and, at several large airports, plenty of open or insecure networks run by critical operations such as baggage handling and ticketing. Almost all public networks allowed data such as user names and passwords to pass through the air unencrypted. Only 3% of people used something more secure.

Interview With A Cyborg

Meet Gordon, a robot controlled by a living brain. The future of treatment for stroke and brain disease may never be the same.
Kevin Warwick was a normal English teenager who liked riding motorcycles after seeing Steve McQueen jump the barbed wire fence in the film The Great Escape. In 1970, at 16, he left school for an apprenticeship at British Telecom installing and planning telephone systems. He studied electronic engineering at Aston University when microprocessors were first introduced. At 28 he received a Ph.D. in computer engineering and held a research post at Imperial College in London. He taught robotics and computing at three different universities prior to being awarded a prestigious chair in cybernetics at the University of Reading at the age of 33.

Economic Bust, Cybercrime Boom

The first ripples of a growing wave of cybercrime may be appearing.
In the physical world, the connection between declining business and crime is simple enough: As the above-ground economy suffers, the underground economy swells. The connection between economic trouble and cybercrime is trickier to prove. But as the economy slows, some online crime watchers see signs that a portion of newly unemployed skilled tech workers are turning to the theft and exploitation of sensitive data even as the existing cybercriminal economy is finding new ways to exploit consumer confusion around the banking meltdown.

Favicon...does it work?

I tried to figure it out if my favicon showed up before the URL. Yes, it worked on my PC and I found it nice. But im not so sure if this will work to other websites. Please make some comments if you see an icon before the URL which is the same on the image shown. If you see my favorite icon, then I made it right or if not there is something wrong with the codes. This is just a trial of a frustrated programmer. lolz

Favorite Icon on URL

This is a tiny icon that I made. I want to put and add this icon on my blogspot URL but I don't know where to put and add any code on blogspot "edit html". This icon is called a "favicon". Favicon can be seen before the URL as a little picture or logo of your blog or website. Anyone knows how to put this favicon? I think no one knows where and how to put this favicon on blogspot URL. hehehe. Well, if you know how to crawl it, teach me how. :) I haven't seen where to place it on at "edit html". Even If I put this image to a hosting site still it won't work because the ".ico" extension is not supported. (Hahay! kapoy oi.) Im tired of this stuff. But anyway, I will let you know If someone will share his idea of putting this stuff. If I can make this, I will show you how.

Foo Fighters

Having commemorated their tenth anniversary with a year-plus run commencing with a double studio album hailed by the New York Times as "an unexpected magnum opus," a sold out arena tour built on that first disc's rock foundation followed by a toned down and intimate theater trek that highlighted the softer side showcased on that record's second half and capped off by a headlining gig at London's Hyde Park for a crowd of 85,000, the question looms larger than any in the Foo Fighters' career to date: What do they do for an encore?
All I can say is "Hail yeah!" I like this band. Former guitarist of Nirvana climbs up to become the famous guitarist/vocal of Foo Fighers "Ain't it the life" Dave Grohl.

Home Security

In this paranoid, hyper-technological age, it's easy to turn your home into a stealthy cyber-fortress. Forget about installing steel shutters, unsightly bars and razor wire. Today's technology can provide more security, without turning your home into a prison.And now might be a good time to assess your options. Rising unemployment rates and falling city budgets are a recipe for an uptick in crime. And as crime grabs more attention, it becomes more important to keep a low profile. "I'm against underground homes, bunker-style homes, fortress-style steel shutters--it just attracts notoriety," says Joel Skousen, author of The Secure Home and a number of other survival books.

Cookies For Your Cellphone

Cookies -- Heard about it. Nahh! This is not a crisp baked cake that you're thinking. You might be wondering why there is a cookie on the cellphone? Same as a cake inside the refrigerator. lolz! A cookies are computer file containing user information: a computer file containing information about a user that is sent to the central computer with each request. The server uses this information to customize data sent back to the user and to log the user's requests. Hungry of cookies! Beware!
Soon your phone might share a lot of information about you with advertisers. And although that might make you nervous, some advertisers hope it will also unleash a flood of more targeted, and thus more useful, ads.
This week, Ringleader Digital, a New York-based mobile ad network is launching an experimental version of what it calls a "media stamp"--a technology it hopes will become as widespread as "cookies" on the Web.
Cookies are one of the behind-the-scenes keys to unlocking the value of digital advertising. Though they are little more than small software files that Web page servers attach to users' computers to identify them, they are nearly ubiquitous and enable advertisers to track users wherever they travel on the Web.
Wireless carriers typically prevent outside firms from embedding such information in mobile devices. "The carriers strip off third-party cookies," says Bob Walczak, chief executive of Ringleader Digital. To get around the carriers, Ringleader Digital embeds its digital stamp in servers rather than browsers.

Android's Reboot Problem

Google's Android platform may take things too literally: Users of T-Mobile's new Android-based G1 phone have discovered that if they type the word "reboot" into a text message or email, the phone will take it as a command and automatically reboot.
The problem arose because Android sends all text entered into the device directly to the operating system, with super-user priviliges. That's a major security flaw, and both users and the company are lucky it was discovered before someone could maliciously exploit it. Google is aware of the bug and already pushing out a fix according to CNET's Steven Shankland.
But let this be a reminder to early adopters everywhere. When a company puts out the first product of a new product line, there are always potential hazards. When the new product line is also an entirely new line of business for the company, you really need to be careful.

What a buck at Starbucks!

Sipping a cup of cappuccino at Starbucks is an addictive way of forgetting your problems while you're inside the cafe. You will feel the good ambiance as well as the aroma of their expensive taste of frothy milky coffee with espresso. Once you're done sipping the hot espresso or swallowing the capuccino, time for you to recollect again the problems you have in life. wahahaha...It's better to wear a mask inside the coffee shop so that nobody will recognize how delightful you are inside. Crazy indeed! hehehaha

uLead Studio 8 Vs Sony Vegas Studio 9

Actually I don't have an idea with these stuffs until one day a friend of mine asked a help from me about video editing. What I did, I went to my other friends and bought a software from him. Although, ulead 8 is an old version software. This was my first movie editing software. I learned a little about it and found it interesting. You can visit some of my videos on Youtube. Some were made using MovieMaker and most were from uLead Studio 8. Click these some of my vids, skaterboy, Celine Dion and Bee Gees and more. If you know a liitle about photoshop I would surely say that uLead would be easy for you to learn as long as you have patience and determination. To indulge you more, If you know how to explore the user friendly XP, uLead is a perfect match for you to learn and explore too.
Sony Vegas Studio 9 is the video editing software that I want to learn and explore it more. This software is quite complicated. As what I've said I need more time to learn this stuff. I found this software very interesting. There are lots of plug-ins and usage especially the media effects. Im sure you like to buy this If you want to compile and record the events of your life.

Where The Streets Have No Name

This boy baptized in the name of "my precious" (from the lord of the ring). He leaves under the bridge. He is friendly but he won't hesitate to ask a food from you when his stomach is throbbing from pain. He was my friend during the time when I was working there near our place. I considered him a funny boy because of his funny voice. Sounds and looks like he is a "my precious" character.

All computers need internet security

Home users can lose valuable personal data with one click to the wrong website. Children trading games also exchange viruses unknowingly. You receive an email requesting an update to your payment details, and a hacker gains access to your bank account. A backdoor is installed on your machine, and your PC becomes a zombie, spewing out spam. Be careful and be attentive.

a self-duplicating computer program that spreads from computer to computer, interfering with data and software. Just as biological viruses infect people, spreading from person to person, computer viruses infect personal computers (PCs) and servers, the computers that control access to a network of computers. Some viruses are mere annoyances, but others can do serious damage. Viruses can delete or change files, steal important information, load and run unwanted applications, send documents via electronic mail (e-mail), or even cripple a machine’s operating system (OS), the basic software that runs the computer.

A Clear Mandate For Obama

Hungry for a change in the nation's direction, voters swept Sen. Barack Hussein Obama into the White House tonight, making him the first African-American elected president of the United States. Obama won by a commanding margin, taking at least 349 of 538 electoral votes from Republican challenger Sen. John McCain, according to projections by television networks, well above the 270 needed for victory. McCain conceded the election just after 11 p.m. ET.
"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer," Obama told a crowd of tens of thousands in his acceptance speech in Chicago.
"It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America."

Crashing the iPhone

Italian systems engineer Piergiorgio Zambrini won fame and money last year when he created "Ziphone," the first widespread application that unlocked iPhones to run on mobile carriers other than AT&T. Now he's making another bid for the spotlight by revealing a bug that can crash the iPhone and, he says, other devices including iPods and Apple computers.
Zambrini planned to publish news about the bug Monday--although he's saving the technical details for Apple (nasdaq: AAPL - news - people ), he says--at least for now.

Google Declares Election (Search) Winners

BURLINGAME, CALIF. - Barack Obama may have pulled ahead in the popular vote for the U.S. presidency Tuesday evening. But on the Internet, the Black Panthers, The Drudge Report, Ben & Jerry's, Sean Hannity and--of course-- Barack Obama jokes were the early winners according to Google.
You've gotta love Google (nasdaq: GOOG - news - people ). A quick peek at Google's "hot trends" link is better than exit polls for giving a sense of what's on the minds of most Americans on Tuesday evening as polling stations across the U.S. begin to wind down.
"Who's winning the election" is among the top queries tapped into the omniscient Google. For reasons that only the man behind the curtain at the Googleplex could possibly know, that question pops you over to the site digitalalchemy.com. Not surprisingly, it has no answer but simply leads you to more links.
Many people phrased the question this way: "Who's winning Obama or McCain?" Those folks, too, are ending up at DigitalAlchemy.

What is HTML?

In computer science, the standard text-formatting language since 1989 for documents on the interconnected computing network known as the World Wide Web. HTML documents are text files that contain two parts: content that is meant to be rendered on a computer screen; and markup or tags, encoded information that directs the text format on the screen and is generally hidden from the user. HTML is a subset of a broader language called Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), which is a system for encoding and formatting documents, whether for output to a computer screen or to paper.
I know a little about HTML. I learned this from the company where I worked before as an OJT. Those were the basic knowledge which they taught me of creating a simple website. I love to explore and study about programming languages that time, the reason why for not pursuing it because I dont have my own PC until now. It would be great if someone would like to help me to continue my studies about programming. Anyone would like to sponsor? PHP, .net, C#, SQL, Perl, etc..Huhh! I wish to know and learn these stuffs.

Top-Earning Dead Celebrities

While things might be topsy-turvy in the financial markets above ground, it's still a bull market in the boneyard. The 13 famous names that make up our Top-Earning Dead Celebrities earned a combined $194 million over the last 12 months. Topping the list for the second year running, is the former King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley. Without so much as lifting a finger, the Memphis Flash earned a whopping $52 million in the last year. That's more than some of the music industry's biggest living acts command--Justin Timberlake pulled in $44 million last year; Madonna $40 million.
Elvis is known of his music until today's generation since he is the former King of Rock 'n' Roll. I am wondering why the name of Kurt Cobain was not on the list since he is one of the most influential persons in the music industry even he was six feet under. Kurt popularized the genre of grunge music, up to this days lot of his fans admire his music.

Google Android Cellphone

If you have a Nokia, Motorola, Samsung or Sony Ericsson cellphone, you've likely gazed upon the work of The Astonishing Tribe (TAT). The Swedish technology and design firm has spent the past six years beautifying user software on millions of cellphones.TAT is in the spotlight again as Google's design partner on the G1, the first cellphone powered by Google's new mobile platform, Android. Forbes.com asked Per Gustafsson, a TAT co-founder and designer, and Daniel Johansson, one of TAT's lead designers for the G1, about the firm's influences and collaborating with Google.

This is really amazing. I wish could use and have this newest cellphone ever by Google in the near future. Im sure this is more prettier and convenient compare to other branded and expensive cellphones.

All Saints' Day

All Saints’ Day, festival celebrated on November 1 in the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches, and by the Orthodox churches on the first Sunday after Pentecost, in honor of God and all his saints, known and unknown. It became established as a church festival early in the 7th century when the Pantheon in Rome was consecrated as the Church of the Blessed Virgin and All Martyrs. Pope Gregory IV gave the custom official authorization in 835. November 1 may have been chosen because it was the day of one of the four great festivals of the pagan nations of the north, and it was church policy to supplant pagan with Christian observance.
Tomorrow, Davao City is one of the busiest places to visit because of the annual celebration of All Saints' Day. I would say that All Saints' Day is an exciting but a crowded day to roam around because all people will see and bump each other in one big place, the crowded cemetery.

Wolgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Austrian composer, who is considered one of the most brilliant and versatile composers ever. He worked in all musical genres of his era, wrote inspired works in each genre, and produced an extraordinary number of compositions, especially considering his short life. By the time Mozart died at age 35, he had completed 41 symphonies, 27 piano concertos, 23 string quartets, 17 piano sonatas, 7 major operas, and numerous works for voice and other instruments.

As a child prodigy Mozart toured Europe and became widely regarded as a miracle of nature because of his musical gifts as a performer of piano, harpsichord, and organ and as a composer of instrumental and vocal music. His mature masterpieces begin with the Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat Major (Jeunehomme, 1777), one of about a dozen outstanding concertos he wrote for piano. Also successful as an opera composer, Mozart wrote three exceptional Italian operas to texts by Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte: Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro, 1786), Don Giovanni (1787), and Così fan tutte (All Women Do So, 1790). They were followed in 1791 by his supreme German opera, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute).
Amazing right! According to some pregnant women, allowing your baby to listen to his music will enhance the listening skills and would become a music lover when he grow up. He would be able to catch easily the melody of every music he wants to listen.

He was the Top 2 in their Class

According to his teacher, my nephew ranked as the number 2 in their class. He never comes late. He was an active student likewise a good listener. You know what, I was so disappointed because almost of his grades are failed. His classmate got a perfect score and ranked as the number 1 student . I believed that my nephew's grades would almost be the same with the first. I am confused of the big differences with their grades. I immediately went to their classroom and talked to his teacher and asked. "Good morning, Sir", Why is it that my nephew ranked as the number 2 in their class and still failed some of his grades?. The teacher simply replied. "Because I have only two students in my class. One is a genius and the other one is a moron". Bwahahaha

Multibillion-dollar experiment to probe nature's mysteries

Deep underground on the border between France and Switzerland, the world's largest particle accelerator complex will explore the world on smaller scales than any human invention has explored before.
The collider's ALICE experiment will look at how the universe formed by analyzing particle collisions.
The Large Hadron Collider will look at how the universe formed by analyzing particle collisions. Some have expressed fears that the project could lead to the Earth's demise -- something scientists say will not happen. Still, skeptics have filed suit to try to stop the project. It even has a rap dedicated to it on YouTube.
Scientists say the collider is finally ready for an attempt to circulate a beam of protons the whole way around the 17-mile tunnel. The test, which takes place Wednesday, is a major step toward seeing if the the immense experiment will provide new information about the way the universe works.
"It's really a generation that we've been looking forward to this moment, and the moments that will come after it in particular," said Bob Cousins, deputy to the scientific leader of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment, one of six experiments inside the collider complex. "September 10 is a demarcation between finishing the construction and starting to turn it on, but the excitement will only continue to grow."
The collider consists of a particle accelerator buried more than 300 feet near Geneva, Switzerland. About $10 billion have gone into the accelerator's construction, the particle detectors and the computers, said Katie Yurkewicz, spokewoman for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, which is host to the collider.
In the coming months, the collider is expected to begin smashing particles into each other by sending two beams of protons around the tunnel in opposite directions. It will operate at higher energies and intensities in the next year, and the experiments could generate enough data to make a discovery by 2009, experts say. Check out the collider complex's six detectors »
Testing the unknownExperts say the collider has the potential to confirm theories about questions that physicists have been working on for decades including the possible existence of extra dimensions. They also hope to find a theoretical particle called the Higgs boson, which has never been detected, but would help explain why matter has mass.
The collider will recreate the conditions of less than a millionth of a second after the Big Bang, when there was a hot "soup" of tiny particles called quarks and gluons, to look at how the universe evolved, said John Harris, U.S. coordinator for ALICE, a detector specialized to analyze that question.
Since this is exploratory science, the collider may uncover surprises that contradict prevailing theories, but which are just as interesting, said Joseph Lykken, theoretical physicist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
"When Columbus sails west, he thought he was going to find something. He didn't find what he thought he was going to find, but he did find something interesting," said Lykken, who works on the Compact Muon Solenoid, one of six experiments inside the collider complex.
Why should the layperson care about this particular exploration? Years ago, when electrons were first identified, no one knew what they were good for, but they have since transformed our entire economy, said Howard Gordon, deputy research program manager for the collider's ATLAS experiment.
"The transformative effect of this research will be to understand the world we live in much better," said Gordon, at Brookhaven National Laboratory. "It's important for just who we are, what we are."
Black hole fears are "baloney"
Fears have emerged that the collider could produce black holes that could suck up anything around them -- including the whole Earth. Such fears prompted legal actions in the U.S. and Europe to halt the operation of the Large Hadron Collider, alleging safety concerns regarding black holes and other phenomena that could theoretically emerge.
Although physicists acknowledge that the collider could, in theory, create small black holes, they say they do not pose any risk. A study released Friday by CERN scientists explains that any black hole created would be tiny, and would not have enough energy to stick around very long before dissolving. Five collider collaborators who did not pen the report independently told CNN there would be no danger from potential black holes.
John Huth, who works on the collider's ATLAS experiment, called such fears "baloney" in a recent interview, and noted that in normal physics, even if the black hole were stable, it could just pass through the Earth without being detected or without interacting at all.
"The gravitational force is so weak that you'd have to wait many, many, many, many, many lifetimes of the universe before one of these things could [get] big enough to even get close to being a problem," said Huth, professor of physics at Harvard University.
At the scene
When visiting the general-purpose detectors CMS and ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider, Lykken said he was awed that 30,000 tons of electronics would have to work without anyone fiddling with them all the time.
"It just blows you away to look at these things and realize they're not only incredibly complex and huge, but they have to actually work," he said. "They have to work without people banging on them all day because they're sitting underground all by themselves."
With twice as much iron as the Eiffel Tower, CMS will run at full power for the first time in conjunction with the first beam test Wednesday, Lykken said. The magnet serves to bend particles, whizzing by at almost the speed of light, to figure out what kind of particles they are.
Although the detector's parts weigh thousands of tons, in previous trials of CMS at lower power, the magnet actually yanked certain parts around because of its power, Lykken said.
"You're talking about such incredible power inside both the accelerator and detectors that you never really know until you turn it all on what's going to happen," he said.
Scientists around the world are pumped for the first beam. Fermilab, the high energy physics lab in Batavia, Illinois, and major collaborator on the Large Hadron Collider, will be host of a "pajama party" at 1:30 a.m. CT that includes a live connection to CERN to follow the action.
Cousins believes that because the collider pushes the frontiers of science and technology, it would be "amazingly impressive if it works the first try," he said in a phone interview from CERN. Any little disturbance of the magnetic field anywhere in the tunnel could stop the beam from making it all the way around.
Still, after a 25-year wait, he's not complaining. "I personally will be fine if there's some problem that has to be overcome in the next few days," he said.

How safe is your PC from these anti-viruses?

Each year, more and more viruses, worms, and Trojan horses are dimensioned and discharged into the untamed world of internet. Set outing anti-virus software on your desktops and servers is all well and good, but if your users don’t know the “rules of assignation,” your virus prevention efforts could be for nothing. (pag xure oi !! ew! xure na gyud ni yot!) ok continue blogging…
