    LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Two people were arrested after police say they ran on the field during the Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday. With approximately five minutes remaining in the third quarter of the Super Bowl, the two individuals took the field at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. “Oh, we’ve got people on the field,” said announcer Tony Romo.

    Astrophysicist Natalie Gosnell says field is riddled with ‘white supremacy’ It’s a different kind of space race. A Colorado astrophysicist who says the field is paralyzed by “systemic racism and white supremacy” and “very violent and hyper-masculine” terminology — such as “vampire star” or “cannibal star” — is speaking out about combating these issues in the classroom and beyond. “As an astrophysicist, I’m a product of institutions that are steeped in systemic racism and white supremacy,” Natalie Gosnell, PhD, an assistant professor of physics at Colorado College, said in an interview published in the school’s newspaper this month.

    An office in USC’s school of social work said in a memo Tuesday that it will no longer use the phrases “field work” and “going into the field” in its curriculum, instead replacing them with “practicum.” The office said the change is meant to support its anti-racist social work. “Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘field work’ may have connotations for descendants of enslaved people and immigrant workers that are not benign,” the memo read. In an emailed statement to the Daily Trojan, a spokesperson for the newly renamed Office of Practicum Education...

    USC’s School of Social Work is removing the word “field” from its curriculum and practice, arguing that it “could be considered anti-black or anti-immigrant” to say someone is “going into the field” or conducting “field work.” The university explains, “our goal is not just to change language but to honor and acknowledge inclusion and reject white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies.” “We have decided to remove the term ‘field’ from our curriculum and practice and replace it with ‘practicum.’ This change supports anti-racist social work practice by replacing language that could be considered anti-black or anti-immigrant in favor of inclusive...

    Actress Sally Field called the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision “cruel” and “uncivilized” during an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday. Co-host Joy Behar noted part of Field’s memoir, and said, “You had to go to Tijuana to get a secret abortion before it was legal.” She asked Fields what she made of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. “Yikes. I think it’s tragic. I think it’s criminal. I think it’s cruel. I think it’s uncivilized. I think you’re not looking at the ramifications of any of it, not only what’s happening to young...

  • New superconducting magnet breaks magnetic field strength records, paving the way for fusion energy

    It was a moment three years in the making, based on intensive research and design work: On Sept. 5, for the first time, a large high-temperature superconducting electromagnet was ramped up to a field strength of 20 tesla, the most powerful magnetic field of its kind ever created on Earth. That successful demonstration helps resolve the greatest uncertainty in the quest to build the world's first fusion power plant that can produce more power than it consumes, according to the project's leaders at MIT and startup company Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS). That advance paves the way, they say, for the...

    JACKSON, Miss. — On normal days, the garage is where people park while visiting Mississippi’s only children’s hospital, a building next door decorated with a logo of a rainbow and sun. Now air-conditioned tents with beds, monitors and oxygen fill the garage’s bottom floor. By Wednesday, coronavirus patients will begin being treated in Mississippi’s second field hospital opened within days on the University of Mississippi Medical Center campus. It comes as the surging delta variant of COVID-19 has overwhelmed hospitals in a state with one of the nation’s lowest vaccination rates

    The accelerating effort to understand the mathematics of quantum field theory will have profound consequences for both math and physics.Over the past century, quantum field theory has proved to be the single most sweeping and successful physical theory ever invented. It is an umbrella term that encompasses many specific quantum field theories — the way “shape” covers specific examples like the square and the circle. The most prominent of these theories is known as the Standard Model, and it is this framework of physics that has been so successful. “It can explain at a fundamental level literally every single experiment...

  • Earth’s Magnetic Field Reversal 42,000 Years Ago Triggered a Global Environmental Crisis

    Nearly 42,000 years ago, when Earth’s magnetic fields reversed, this triggered major environmental changes, extinction events, and long-term changes in human behavior, a new study reports. The findings, made possible by a new radiocarbon record derived from New Zealand’s ancient kauri trees, raise important questions about the evolutionary impacts of geomagnetic reversals and excursions throughout the deeper geological record, the authors say. “Before this work,” says author Chris Turney in a related video, “we knew there were a lot of things happening around the world at 42,000 years ago, but we didn’t know precisely how… For the first time, we’ve...

    LONDON (AP) — Britain’s National Health Service will from next week employ a little-used field hospital specially built at a huge exhibition center in east London in the early days of the pandemic last spring. NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens said Thursday that the pressures facing hospitals in London and the southeast of England are so acute that the Nightingale hospital at the ExCel London will be opened next week to inpatients. A few hundred beds for non-COVID patients are expected to be available at first.

    **SNIP** In a statement on Monday, the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office reported a shocking find: a small poppy field on a private plot near a road in Moss Landing, about 15 miles northeast of Monterey, that could produce some four pounds of heroin annually. “Over the weekend the Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division eradicated one acre of opium poppies, which contained approximately 27,000 plants of opium poppies and another 16,500 harvested plants,” the statement said. Those plants could have produced a pound and a half of heroin. The plot could have been harvested three times a year. “The street value of...

    NASA’s magnetic field mission looking for green energy In addition to learning more about the magnetic field of the Earth, and the ubiquitous but hard to understand “magnetic reconnection,” NASA’s new MMS mission is also looking for ways to harness the power of magnetism, and produce clean energy. NASA’s MMS mission will investigate magnetic reconnection.Findings from this mission could lead to production of green energy from magnetism.Magnetic reconnection is ubiquitous in the cosmos, but it’s still poorly understood. After years of intensive planning, with countless days of engineering works, data analysis, and more, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration on Thursday successfully launched the...
  • The Chameleon in the Vacuum Chamber (physics, dark energy)

    The Chameleon in the Vacuum Chamber A new proposal for an experiment that could test the presence of a fifth force with unprecedented precision. It still amazes me that everything I see is made up of only some few dozen particles and four interactions. For all we know. But maybe this isn’t all there is? Physicists have been speculating for a while now that our universe needs a fifth fundamental force, one responsible for the phenomenon of dark energy, to maintain the observed expansion rate. Although this idea has been around for more than a decade, it has turned...

    "The Earth destroys its fools, but the intelligent destroy the Earth."-Khalid ibn al-Walid Usually, when we talk about terraforming, we think about taking a presently uninhabitable planet and making it suitable for terrestrial life. This means taking a world without an oxygen-rich atmosphere, with watery oceans, and without the means to sustain them, and to transform it into an Earth-like world. The obvious choice, when it comes to our Solar System, is Mars. (Image credit: Daein Ballard.) The red planet, after all, is not a total stranger to these conditions. On the contrary, for the first billion-and-a-half years of our...

    With gasoline prices marching north, President Obama next week will take a break from worshipping the sun and putting his finger to the wind when he actually highlights energy projects that provide lots of energy. The White House is desperate to repair the damage being done to Obama’s campaign by the price at the pump, and aides have suddenly begun portraying him as a great apostle of oil and gas drilling. In what may go down as one of the worst political blunders of his presidency, Obama late last year bowed to environmentalists’ pressure and rejected the Keystone pipeline’s route...

    In the wake of the revelation that the Department of Defense has spend $750,000 on a soccer field for detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp pressed Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta on his knowledge of the expenditure at a Budget Committee hearing on Wednesday. Panetta denied knowledge of the project. “Did you know that apparently federal taxpayers are paying for a $750,000 soccer field at Gitmo? Is that something that the Department of Defense knew about?” Huelskamp asked Panetta. “I’m sorry, what was that?” Panetta replied. “A $750,000 soccer field at Gitmo that was just announced by...
