The Standard Model is far more than elementary particles arranged in a table. The Standard Model of particle physics is often visualized as a table, similar to the periodic table of elements, and used to describe particle properties, such as mass, charge and spin. Show More Summary

An engineer teamed up with a veterinarian to test a bone cancer drug delivery system in animals bigger than the standard animal model, the mouse. They chose dogs -- mammals closer in size and biology to humans -- with naturally occurring bone cancers, which also are a lot like human bone tumors.
The single-cab body will be available in standard and XD heavy-duty form.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- At the University of Illinois, an engineer teamed up with a veterinarian to test a bone cancer drug delivery system in animals bigger than the standard animal model, the mouse. They chose dogs - mammals closer in size and biology to humans - with naturally occurring bone cancers, which also are a lot like human bone tumors. read more
Are we facing imminent doom? Will the universe collapse? That disparity between theory and observation indicates the Standard Model theory of a constantly expanding universe has been outpaced by new measurements of the Higgs and top quark. A stable universe...
hyundai has given its mid-size sonata sedan range a revamp for the 2017 model year, slightly tweaking specifications across the board. all models in the range now gain standard steering wheel paddle shifters, while the sonata’s tyre supplier has also changed, putting ‘premium’ rubber under each model.

One of the main arguments given for the idea of supersymmetric extensions of the standard model has been what SUSY enthusiasts call the “WIMP Miracle” (WIMP=Weakly Interacting Massive Particle). This is the claim that such SUSY models include a stable … Continue reading ?
As a standard political act, Donald Trump’s introduction of Mike Pence as his choice for Vice President was unprecedented for its sheer weirdness. Trump spent 28 minutes talking about everything but Pence, the ostensible reason for his appearance, and them spent no time at all with him. But the behavior makes a lot more sense [...]
A new study helps to shed light on the transcriptomic differences between different tissues in Arabidopsis, an important model organism, by creating a standardized "atlas" that can automatically annotate samples to include lost metadata such as tissue type.
The minimum amount of storage included in flagship smartphones has been growing, albeit very slowly. Sixteen gigabyte models were banished by high-end Android smartphone manufacturers quite a while ago, making 32GB the standard. But with photos and apps that are getting ever large, 32GB may not be enough for many. It’s hard to believe that iPhones still have 16GB [...]
It seems Millennarian cults really mean it, at least in the experimental context: We model religious faith as a “demand for beliefs,” following the logic of the Pascalian wager. We show how standard experimental interventions linking financial consequences to falsifiable religious statements can elicit and characterize beliefs. Show More Summary
How much water does your lawn really need? A University of Utah study re-evaluated lawn watering recommendations by measuring water use by lawns in Los Angeles. The standard model of turfgrass water needs, they found, lacked precision in some common urban southern California conditions, like the Santa Ana winds, or in the shade. read more

Shi-Ling Hsu (Florida State), A Game-Theoretic Model of Cooperation in Law School Faculties: A standard account of group cooperation would predict that group stability would bring about greater cooperation, because repeat-play games would allow for sanctions and rewards.

The Springfield Trapdoor was America’s first standard issue breech-loading rifle beginning in 1873. The advantage of rifles using metallic cartridges was quickly realized, and the hinged breechblock action of the Model 1873 was chosen over competing designs because of the ease by which existing rifles could be converted.
