While the model HS-500, is a practical headphones. Where these headphones can be folded into a more compact. This model is supported driver Neodymium magnets (NdFeB) with a diameter of 34mm with CCAW voice coils.

Made of aluminum, which makes the HS-500 is more powerful and lighter making it suitable for use by tourists. HS-500 is priced at $45,00 US dollars with a choice of black and silver.

Twitter Launches Two New Features, Like and Star


Back presents two new features that users are better known Like and Star.

Since the year 2008, the user has to know that the Favorite feature is available and become part of Twitter.

In order to further popularize the feature, Twitter has redesigned zoom to be more prominent and more frequently used by the users.

One of the steps taken by Twitter is again presents two new features that are better known Like and Star.

Interestingly, the symbol ‘Star’ used by Twitter is also there to that used by Favorite. As seen in the figure, for the tweet that got Star / Like will be visible in the user’s profile page.

Until now, both of these features continue to be refined and tested on some users.

Unfortunately, it is not known exactly when the new feature that gives color to the user’s Twitter is going to be available to all users.

Some observers have stated that in the not distant future, both of these features will be used by the user. We wait.

Rare Decay Threatens to Tear down Main Theory Physics

Theory that claims the existence of super-particles.

Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland has detected a rare decay of a particle that could undermine the theory of super-symmetry, one of the main theories in physics.

Super-symmetry, or SUSY is a theory used to explain a number of inconsistencies in the theory of the Standard Model, the traditional theory of subatomic physics the most widely recognized by scientists in the world.

The results of recent observations reported in the Hadron Collider Physics conference in Kyoto, Japan, held since 12 November, shows the difference with most SUSY models are believed to physicists.

Professor Chris Parkes, one of the conference participants who came from England to the BBC explained that “Super-symmetry may not be dead, but the latest results have obviously been put in the hospital.”

SUSY theories claiming the existence of super-particles or larger versions of the particles that have previously been found in nature or that have been known to man.

The presence of these particles could explain why galaxies rotate faster than those described in the Standard Model theory. Physicists suspect other than the particles already known, galaxies also contain dark material compiled by the super particles. Therefore galaxy contains more mass can be detected and spin faster.

Are researchers at the LHCb detector that finds a flaw in that theory. Previously estimated that a particle called the Bs Meson if decay it will split into two particles known as muons. But the test was found of any decay million times, just three times a Bs Meson particles shed into two muons. If the super-particles really exist – as postulated in the theory of SUSY – then decay should occur more often.

Decay test itself is one of the “golden test” or a major test in proving the theory of super-symmetry.

Professor Val Gibson of Cambridge LHCb team said the test was to put the “theory of super-symmetry we are in doubt.”

If SUSY is not an exact explanation for dark matter, scientists must look for alternative ideas to explain inconsistencies that occur in the Standard Model. But so far, physicists are trying to find an alternative explanation – the so-called “new physics” – for anomalies in the Standard Model is still a stalemate.

“If there is new physics, so he hides so well behind the Standard Model,” explained Dr. Marc-Olivier Bettler of Cambridge, one of the team’s analysis of the test.

Meanwhile, according to Parkes, the test results did not deny the existence of super-partikel. It’s just now that they’re “running out of location to find.”

Skull Similar Alien Found in Mexico


Human skull intentionally shaped like alien heads were found in a 1000 year-old tomb in Mexico, according to the researchers reported as quoted by LiveScience.

Practice changing the shape of the skull has become common practice in Central America. But the latest findings were surprising because it suggests that the practice has also spread further north.

Grave was discovered in Onavas, a small village in Mexico, in 1999. The discovery occurred when local residents were digging irrigation canals. The tomb is the tomb of the pre-Hispanic era first found in Sonora, a state which is located in northern Mexico.

Historical site called El Cementerio, containing 25 bodies. Thirteen of them had a skull that has been altered, intentionally aligned to the rear, while the other five have teeth that cut.

Than 25 the rest of the body was 17 of which were children aged between five to 16 years. There are no signs of the disease which caused their death. The researchers suspect they were killed because of the tradition of the formation of the head.

But experts from Arizona State University that perform research that do not know the reason for changing the shape of the head of the local community as it is.

“The reason why the people in El Cementerio change the shape of their skulls are not yet known,” said Cristina Garcia Moreno, one of the archaeologists involved in the study.

Some of the bodies were found still using earrings, nose rings, bracelets, and necklaces made of shells from the Gulf of California. One of the bodies were buried with a turtle shell on his chest.

Transparent 3 Dimensional Computer Introduced


Los Angeles

– Technology latest computer with a transparent display that allows users to reach out and touch into digital content introduced recently at the TED Conference (Technology, Entertainment and Design) in Los Angeles.

Researchers TED Jinha Lee has long worked on a 3D desktop computer in collaboration with Microsoft.

“Getting people to interact with machines in the same way as interacting with solid objects can make the activity much more intuitive computer use,” Lee said as quoted by the BBC.

The use of this kind of computer at the public can form in a decade, he predicted.

The system used includes a transparent LED screen with a camera attached (built-in cameras) that can read body language and eye movements of users.

Computer design is inspired by the human need to interact with objects, said Lee.

“Memories of space (spatial memory), in which our bodies can instinctively remember where the objects, is a skill that is very unique to humans,” he explained.

By applying it to the digital world, so users can more easily operate the computer and able to complete tasks more difficult.

“If you’re working on a document, you can pick it up and flip through (page) like a book,” said Lee.

For tasks that require high precision and can not do with hand gestures, available touchpad or touch board. Thus, for example, an architect can make 3D animation models.

The workings of this computer, as shown in the BBC video, manual and hands separated by a transparent monitor, so both hands can still be seen, but that seemed to be touched or held is digital content that appears on the monitor transparent.

Likewise, the keyboard and touchpad are also located behind the monitor.

“The gap between what designers and what can be done very large computer. If you can put both hands into the computer and managing digital content, then you can express ideas more fully.”

Lee, a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is currently affected by military service in South Korea and was assigned to Samsung Electronics.

For him, the main purpose of this research is digitally integrate with the world of physics.

Computers are now easier to use because of the gap between the real world and the technology smaller.

“In the first generation of computers, there is a big gap, but it is getting smaller with findings such as a touch screen,” he explained. “Limitations of existing live our imagination.”


Conspiracy Theories Flourish in Russia Since Denomination Meteor Not to Found

Moscow – Thousands of Russian citizens were mobilized to clean up the damage caused by the meteor hit near the Ural mountains failed to find the space rock fragments. Failing that later sparked a conversation about the conspiracy theories about secret weapons and a warning from God.

A number of divers were deployed to search for the stone at the bottom of the river Chelyabinsk, where the discovery of a hole diameter of a few meters only found a small object size of 1 cm. Not found a bigger rock fragments.

The loss of the space rock proof ignited sharing conspiracy theories about the cause of the terrible explosion and fireball in the sky city of Chelyabinsk, a city where many of Russia’s defense industry operates.

One wing nationalist Russian politician, Vladimir Zhirinovsky told reporters in Moscow said that the explosion was actually the act of “state of war enthusiast”, the United States.

“It was not a meteor. Was new weapons being tested by the American people,” said Zhirinovsky.

Meanwhile, a priest who lived near the blast area warning call from the Lord. But some activists suspect the explosion was the result of weapons testing.

“Honestly, I am more convinced that it was the military stuff,” said Oksana Trufanova, a local rights activist asai.

But emergency officials in town affairs ministry assesses military related speculations expressed its citizens is “rubbish”.

As for the agency antarisa meteor that hit Russia Chelyabinsk was shot with a speed of 30.57 km / h and leaving a trail of white smoke in the sky along the 201 km.

While the U.S. space agency, NASA, estimated meteor approximately 16.76 meters in diameter before it enters Earth’s atmosphere with a weight of 10,000 tons.

Meteor explodes far above the Earth, releasing about 500 kilotons of energy – equivalent to almost 30 times greater than the atomic bomb that exploded at Hiroshima, Japan in World War II.
