We need iPads

Common Sense
by Paul Jacob   Paul Jacob

"Every once in a while somebody explains that 'we' don't need this or that product, however great it may be and however great the demand for it. For example, a tech reviewer dubs Apple's latest iPad models 'largely unnecessary,' given last-year models almost as capable. The charge of unnecessariness is surely false when we're talking about customers who do want the most cutting-edge technology and can put it to good use. But it's false in a broader perspective too -- unless we suppose that all advances in human civilization beyond the level of the hut and the bearskin are 'largely unnecessary' to human survival and well-being."

Dwarf galaxies dim hopes of dark matter

October 31, 2014
National Geographic    

"Once again, a shadow of a signal that scientists hoped would amplify into conclusive evidence of dark matter has instead flatlined, repeating a maddening refrain in the search for the invisible, omnipresent particles. The Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) failed to detect the glow of gamma rays emitted by annihilating dark matter in miniature 'dwarf' galaxies that orbit the Milky Way, scientists reported Friday at a meeting in Nagoya, Japan. The hint of such a glow showed up in a Fermi analysis last year, but the statistical bump disappeared as more data accumulated." (10/30/14)
