The week the universe changed 

The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
- Eden Phillpotts

James Burke coined the term the day the universe changed as a catchphrase for his TV series on scientific progress.
But last week, our universe actually did change -- or at least, what we could see of it.
Astronomers saw the dark matter linking galaxies the day after physicists thought they had found the Higgs Bosun particle

And for the first time ever physicists last week also photographed the shadow of an atom.

I guess this is important in developing inter-stellar drives and determining how dangerous kinetic impactor WMDs will be.

If we had Chretein's GAI instead of Harper's oiley platforms, Id've volunteered about 30 hrs last week studying counter-bioterror.
I figure a GAI could consist of progressively more limited utilities; ie) just food stamps or rent or just healthy foods or just bus tickets/cabfare, the more it is used by an individual. What an AB hell we live in without at least food and transportation subsidized. I've been walking all over the place the last year and a half like a good Albertan. I don't feel holy. My feet in my stolen shoes are sore: Cgy.
