    Nearly 40 years after it was proposed, mathematicians have settled one of the most profound questions in the study of general relativity. In a paper posted online last fall, mathematicians Mihalis Dafermos and Jonathan Luk have proven that the strong cosmic censorship conjecture, which concerns the strange inner workings of black holes, is false.“I personally view this work as a tremendous achievement — a qualitative jump in our understanding of general relativity,” emailed Igor Rodnianski, a mathematician at Princeton University.The strong cosmic censorship conjecture was proposed in 1979 by the influential physicist Roger Penrose. It was meant as a...

    Meet Eugenior Joseph, the latest victim of progressive liberal Democrat racism because he’s not on thier plantation. At a Cheesecake Factory (formula restaurant) on Mother’s Day, Joseph was accosted by several liberal Democrats employees of Cheesecake Factory in Miami. Why? Because he was wearing a red Make America Great Again. Several employees of the Cheesecake Factory went over the Eugenior Joseph and threatened to beat him up. They even called him the n-word. And what has Cheesecake Factory done to these racist employees? Issue a tepid aplogy (that Mr. Joseph denies) and suspending, with pay the employees who threatened and...

    A former White House staffer who served under President Obama was swarmed by six police officers while moving into his New York apartment after a neighbor reported a “burglary in progress.” Darren Martin, who works for the city’s Department of Social Services, tweeted the entire ordeal on Friday night, along with a video of his interaction with the officers. “Can’t go nowhere without the cops following me. You know how it is,” Martin says in the footage. At one point, a 911 dispatcher is heard over the radio saying that “Somebody was trying to break in the door” with a...

    I’m a mother, a veteran, a black American and a Christian. People who don’t know me often make a lot of assumptions about who I am. For example, many assume that because I’m black, I must be a Democrat. But they would be wrong. Yes, I’m black. But no, I’m not a Democrat. When I tell people this, it elicits a lot of confusion and anger. First and foremost, it’s seen as a betrayal to the black community. I lost almost all of my black friends during the 2016 election campaign. Take it from me, there’s no room for independent...

    How to Listen to the Background Hum of Gravitational Waves From all the Black Holes Colliding into Each Other Article written: 18 Apr , 2018 by Matt Williams The first-ever detection of gravitational waves (which took place in September of 2015) triggered a revolution in astronomy. Not only did this event confirm a theory predicted by Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity a century before, it also ushered in a new era where the mergers of distant black holes, supernovae, and neutron stars could be studied by examining their resulting waves.In addition, scientists have theorized that black hole mergers could actually...

    ‘Unarmed’ black man killed in Walmart parking lot by police officers firing 'dozens of bullets' into packed carPolice have shot and killed a 26-year-old black man in a packed car outside of a Walmart in what his family say was an overly aggressive police response that led to an unnecessary death. Police in Barstow, California killed Diante Yarber, a father of three, earlier this month after attempting to stop the vehicle he was in. A report from Barstow police says that Mr Yarber was “wanted for questioning” in a stolen vehicle case, and that he struck two patrol cars before...

    DETROIT (AP) — A black 14-year-old boy who got lost in a Detroit suburban neighborhood while trying to get to school was shot at by a white homeowner after knocking on a door to ask directions, prosecutors said Friday, citing home security video and the account of the boy. Jeffery Zeigler, a retired Detroit firefighter, was arraigned Friday on charges including assault with intent to murder. Oakland County sheriff's deputies were called to Zeigler's Rochester Hills' home about 8:20 a.m. Thursday after a woman told 911 that her husband had chased a black male who tried to break in. Deputies...

    Dense Star Clusters Could be the Places Where Black Hole Mergers are Common Article written: 12 Apr , 2018 by Matt Williams In February of 2016, scientists working for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) made history when they announced the first-ever detection of gravitational waves. Not only did this discovery confirm a century-old prediction made by Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, it also confirmed the existence of stellar binary black holes – which merged to produce the signal in the first place.And now, an international team led by MIT astrophysicist Carl Rodriguez has produced a study that suggests that ...

    Wisconsin Sen. Lena Taylor was cited for disorderly conduct for allegedly berating a bank teller, but an attorney for the Milwaukee Democrat is seeking to quash the citation. Vincent Bobot said Taylor was given a civil citation Friday by a Milwaukee police officer on the scene but was later told by an unnamed supervisor in the Police Department that the citation was being reviewed. A spokeswoman for Milwaukee police has made no comment on the incident.

    A Canadian high school switched to “Africentric Math” to attract black students to go into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math(STEM) fields, according to Canadian Broadcasting’s(CBC) Wednesday report. Nova Scotia’s Auburn Drive High School math teachers are skipping their previous eurocentric approach to teaching mathematics so black students will gain more interest in the subject, the CBC reported. Teachers are adopting an Afrocentric lens to teach mathematics, based on incorporating African history and culture to make math classes resonate with their students. Auburn High School is working with the Imphop’s Legacy Academy, a program encouraging black students to get interested in...

    Gravitational waves have opened up new ways to test the properties of black holes — and Einstein’s theory of gravity along with them.We all dream the same dream, here in theoretical physics. We dream of the day when one of our equations will be plotted against data and fit spot on. It’s rare for this dream to come true. Even if it does, some don’t live to see it. Take, for example, Albert Einstein, who passed away in 1955, 60 years before his equations’ most stunning consequence was confirmed: Space-time has periodic ripples — gravitational waves — that can carry...

    Physicists have insisted for a long time that black holes are impenetrable ciphers. Whatever goes in is lost, impossible to study or meaningfully understand. Some small amount of matter and energy might escape a black hole in the form of "Hawking radiation," but anything still inside the black hole is functionally disappeared from the physical universe. The idea is a basic premise of modern physics: If something falls into a black hole, it can't be contacted, it's future can't be predicted. No observer could possibly survive traveling into the dark space, not even long enough to glance around and notice...

An ordained minister, Knox communicated her opinion openly on social media. In 2013, Knox sued the district for violating her right to free speech and her right to the free expression of her religion. She wanted her job back with back pay and the admission that she was within her rights under the Constitution to express her views on Facebook. The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey admitted that though...
