NRO’s Kathryn Jean Lopez takes the high road after Gawker scumbag gets nasty

Ain’t that the truth.

Gawker editor John Cook, who’s already proven himself to be quite adept at being a douchebag, can now add “professional misogynist” to his CV. After learning that NRO’s Kathryn Jean Lopez was following him on Twitter, he reacted like the gentleman he is:

Class-say.

That’s not all Cook could learn from her:

First-class? You bet. Lopez responded with her trademark grace:

Predictably, Cook took nothing away from his lesson in civility:

What a sleazy jerk.

“Lazy Sunday 2″

View this embed ›

Tonight’s episode is reportedly the last for Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis — at least that’s been the rumor for some time. (Questlove sent a tweet this evening that confirmed but it has since been deleted). With Andy’s departure, this video is all the confirmation we needed that the Digital Shorts will probably be leaving with him.

To help us through this oh-so hard time, let’s collectively enjoy the first “Lazy Sunday”, the “first” of many fantastically wacky, ridiculous, and enjoyable Lonely Island-produced Digital Shorts (and no, I don’t understand why nobody ever wants to count “Lettuce”, as the first one either):

Speaking of things that make you feel old, the first “Lazy Sunday” was released nearly SEVEN years ago.

“Quantum Cheshire Cat” Phenomenon Observed For The First Time

Quantum mechanics is so weird, people often resort to Alice in Wonderland metaphors to explain it. Particle physicists have now gone one better, actually creating particles modeled on Lewis Carroll’s Cheshire Cat.

The famous puss slowly disappeared leaving its grin behind, prompting Alice to say, “Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin, but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!” In Nature Communications this week, a team led by Tobias Denkmayr, a PhD student at the Vienna University of Technology announced something even physicists might call “curiouser and curiouser”; success in separating properties from the particles that normally possess them.

In this case the particles were neutrons. The property was magnetic moment, the extent to which an object is susceptible to rotation by an external magnetic field. Although, as their name suggests, neutrons have no net electric charge, they do have a well established magnetic moments of – 0.97×10-26 JT-1, produced by an internal structure of one up and two down quarks. The negative sign is an indication of the neutrons align in the opposite direction to a magnetic field.

In the classical world we are familiar with the idea that a property like magnetic moment cannot be separated from its object – it would be like taking the taste away from a chocolate bar so that the bar produced no sensation on the tongue, but a disembodied taste could be detected somewhere quite distinct.

However, things work differently in the world of the very small. In the 1990s, Professor Yakir Aharonov of Tel Aviv University proposed the properties could indeed be detached from particles (his book explaining it is delightfully subtitled Quantum Theory for the Perplexed). The idea develops on Schrödinger’s famous feline thought-experiment. However, instead of ending up with a live and dead cat, you have a cat without its properties, and properties without the cat. The naming after Carroll’s Cheshire moggy was inevitable.

A schematic of how Cheshire Cat particles might behave.

The idea of Cheshire cat particles has become a topic for an increasing number of papers in the last few years, but these have generally been about theory – just as no one actually puts Felis catus in boxes with poison vial and radioactive sources, for all the papers discussing what would happen if you did.

Denkmayr and his co-authors, however, temporarily removed the magnetic moment from the neutrons using an interferometer. They used a silicon crystal to split a neutron beam and reported, “The experimental results suggest that the system behaves as if the neutrons go through one beam path, while their magnetic moment travels along the other.” The beams were then reunited, leaving no disembodied magnetic moments prowling the universe.

Denkmayr’s experimental set up.

The absence of moment from the neutrons was established by testing their spin in a magnetic field using Aharonov’s concept of “weak measurement” which allows observations to take place without disturbing the system as usually occurs in quantum circumstances.

The authors note, “The investigation of Schrödinger cats advanced the field of quantum information processing and communication.” They suggest the work could be useful in “a situation in which the magnetic moment of a particle overshadows another of the particle’s properties which one wants to measure very precisely. The Cheshire Cat effect might lead to a technology which allows one to separate the unwanted magnetic moment to a region where it causes no disturbance to the high-precision measurement of the other property.”

No growth for you: Cutter says ‘enter and stay in middle class,’ plebs

Well, lying liar who lies, Stephanie Cutter, is making the rounds again and made an appearance on MSNBC this morning.

I thought we could be done with Stephanie Cutter for at least a month…

— Jeff Poor (@jeff_poor) November 28, 2012

@chucktodd Trying to have an intelligent conversation with Stephanie Cutter is like trying to do that witih a puppet.

— Gary Tapperson (@Tappersong) November 28, 2012

Heh. It seems she spouted idiocy, as always: Don’t you dare have pesky dreams or aspirations, rubes. You’ll hit a plateau and like it. President Obama has a mandate for it, even!

No upward mobility! MT @amandacarpenter: Steph Cutter just said POTUS has mandate for people to “enter & stay in middle class.” Odd phrasing

— Ken McIntyre (@KenMac55) November 28, 2012

@amandacarpenter I remember when we wanted people to move up, not stay somewhere.

— Brian Faughnan (@BrianFaughnan) November 28, 2012

That just shows they have no idea how things work in reality. @amandacarpenter

— Saturdays & Sundays (@NARNfan) November 28, 2012

Odd phrasing and a lack of reality, or simply once again saying what they actually believe out loud? Success is bad and all, if you can possibly even build that yourself anyway.

@amandacarpenter Not odd phrasing from an administration that believes there should be only one class of people.

— Gus (@GLR3TX) November 28, 2012

All they know how to do is take and allocate resources by politics and rent seeking. Aggregate prosperity… @amandacarpenter

— Saturdays & Sundays (@NARNfan) November 28, 2012

…and individual flourishing is the last thing on their mind. @amandacarpenter

Ugandan President Appears To Be Stalling Efforts To Revive Anti-Homosexuality Bill

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and his party appear to be taking steps to frustrate efforts to revive the country;s Anti-Homosexuality Act, which was struck down on procedural grounds by the Constitutional Court on Aug 1.

Members of Museveni’s National Resistance Movement held a party meeting on Monday and then released a statement saying, “We accept the court’s ruling.” The statement appeared to signal that Uganda’s attorney general would drop an appeal of the ruling announced last week. Nicholas Opiyo, , told BuzzFeed he had confirmed that in conversations with some of the members of parliament who attended the meeting, but was not aware that the attorney general had taken any formal steps to abort the appeal process announced on Friday.

The party members also said in their statement that they would form a committee of nine members to “analyze” the human rights objections raised in the suit against the Anti-Homosexuality Act. Those objections were never considered by the court because it struck down the law on the basis of parliament having violated rules of procedure when it adopted the law on December 20. The committee will report back in one month, a delay that may anger some of the more than 200 MPs who reportedly signed onto a call for an immediate re-vote on the law. Local news reports said that party members who signed that petition had agreed to drop their support for suspending parliamentary rules to allow them to quickly enact the law again.

The party leadership released this statement, which lists the MPs who will report on the bill. The committee includes the bill’s original sponsor, Deputy Whip David Bahati, who is also known as a Museveni loyalist.
