Neutrinos still faster than light, say INFN scientists

A new experiment appears to provide further evidence that Einstein may have been wrong when he said nothing could go faster than the speed of light, a theory that underpins modern thinking on how the universe works.

The new evidence, challenging a dogma of science that has held since Albert Einstein laid out his theory of relativity in 1905, appeared to confirm a startling finding that sub-atomic particles called neutrinos could travel fractions of a second faster.

Government proposes freeze in state payroll, tax on private sector incomes and companies

 

15:30 THE government is pushing for a freeze in the state payroll for two years as part of additional austerity measures that also include taxing high incomes in the private sector and a small levy on companies with domestic activities, it was announced on Friday.

The measures aim at restoring Cyprus’access to the international markets for its financing needs, lost after successive downgrades by all ratings agencies.

“Otherwise, Cyprus joining the EU support mechanism should be considered a given,” Kazamias said.

Finance Minister Kikis Kazamias said the state payroll freeze would save the state around €355 million in 2012 and 2013.

Men’s sex lives hit by social pressures

CHANGING social dynamics that have seen men grow soft and women more aggressive, are contributing to the fact that one in three men worldwide now suffers from premature ejaculation, a leading neurologist and psychiatrist said yesterday.

Thanos Askitis, founder of the Institute of Mental and Sexual Health (IMSH) in Greece and Cyprus, said the redefinition of roles and the socially ingrained stereotypes of macho men and sexy women created “an unbearable stress on males to perform and always be perfect in bed”, while women still get to maintain the ‘femme fatale’ aspect –

‘Europe in the grip of drug-resistant superbugs’

SUPERBUGS capable of evading even the most powerful antibiotics are increasing their grip in Europe with rates of drug resistance in one type of bacteria reaching more than 50 per cent in the worst-hit countries, including Cyprus, European health officials said yesterday.

In a report on multi-drug resistant bacteria, or so-called superbugs, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), which monitors disease across the European Union, said the need to combat resistance was “critical”.

“We need to declare a war — a war against these bacteria,” the ECDC’s director Marc Sprenger told Reuters in an interview about the report.
