The universe's 'missing matter' problem has finally been solved!


When Jean-Pierre Macquart arrived home from work one night in 2019, he was buzzing with excitement. He'd just helped solve a decades-old cosmic mystery with the help of a team of international astronomers. He couldn't wait to tell his wife.


Within minutes, he was wrangling [his] two children, ages two and four, and taking to the kitchen, helping his wife with the cooking...

The critical information missing from this article is whether his children's ages were two and four during that night in 2019, or that's their ages today. There's also no mention of what they were cooking! I feel I won't completely understand this dramatic breakthrough in cosmology until I know these things.

Seriously, I hate "science" articles like this that try to be more about people than their discoveries. I immediately become skeptical that the writer even understands the subject.

I am reminded of a quote from Jaws.


Mayor Vaughn: I don't think either one of you are familiar with our problems.

Hooper: I think that I am familiar with the fact that you are going to ignore this particular problem until it swims up and BITES YOU ON THE ASS!

I think Jaws just bit Trump on the ass.

Arizona health department tells university COVID-19 modeling team to stop work, limits data access

The governor has made up his mind so don't let anyone confuse him with the facts.


The Arizona Department of Health Services told a team of university experts working on COVID-19 modeling to "pause" its work, an email from a department leader shows.

The modeling team of about two dozen professors at Arizona State University and the University of Arizona was compiling the most robust public model in Arizona of COVID-19.

The email, from DHS bureau chief of public health statistics S. Robert Bailey, came on Monday evening, after Gov. Doug Ducey announced plans to begin easing social distancing in the coming days.


Women never lie!

... or at least not the ones with the pointed ears.

Shades of Joseph McCarthy!

"I have here in my hand ... a list of names..." - Joseph McCarthy

Trump contradicts US intel community by claiming he's seen evidence coronavirus originated in Chinese lab

"Yes, I have," Trump said when asked whether he's seen evidence that would suggest the virus originated in the lab. Later, asked why he was confident in that assessment, Trump demurred.
"I can't tell you that. I'm not allowed to tell you that," he said.

And beside sounding like McCarthy, since when has Trump ever admitted that anyone can say what he isn't allowed to do?

Translated into broken English from broken Russian?

"It has just now became known that the coronavirus test I gave came back positive," Mishustin told Putin.
