Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the US, have performed sophisticated laser measurements to detect the subtle effects of one of nature's most elusive forces - the "weak interaction".


Word of the Day
cowpooling
  • The practice of two or more parties jointly purchasing all or part of a butchered cow and dividing the meat between them.
The word 'cowpooling' was formed on the model of 'carpooling'.
