LHC Seminar accompanied by rumours.

From an interesting Google plus post by +Cliff Harvey https://plus.google.com/104014323550176363481/posts/apaEGDHmvzP?hl=en "Your hadrino doesn't look so convincing to me. But there's a strong new rumor of a stop (scalar top) signal at the LHC. Maybe the blogs can sniff it out...." And "Rumor: last ...

Update on Searches for New Physics in CMS

There was a talk today at Cern on the above subject. More tantalizing glimpses is all they've found, so far.

A Shaldron?

Re: 2011 Events Discussion

Our Pal M.Jennings of Meltronx has a Google Plus page (LHC Portal should get one too!) called MyLHCLite. https://plus.google.com/u/0/108395147010386487232/posts On there he shows some views of the ATLAS experiment innards. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-gY4o_Yvg8Ls/TxcLNzBq53I/AAAAAAAAAD0/1mGHHO...

And rumors we hear rumors.
