Staying away from politics this week, the one bit of news that came out was the discovery of the Higgs Boson.

While it’s beyond my ability to explain exactly what it is, the Higgs Boson is what gives subatomic particles their mass.  I know that it was postulated to exist by a scientist named Higgs back in 1964, and that Stephan Hawking bet $100 would not ever be discovered. Professor Peter Higgs is still alive and Hawking kindly suggested that he be awarded a Nobel prize for his work.
