    Here’s some news about the neutrino research program at Fermilab; this item appeared on Scientific American’s Sciam Observations blog. As far as I can tell, MicroBooNE has not yet been written about in the science press.

    I partecipate since ever actively, with greatest interest and pleasure to the blog The Great Beyond, because, in my opinion, all friends and moderators are firsighted, having open mind. Therefore, first of all, I suggest them to read – as topic of possible critical discussion – a paper of mine, based on non local realm, wherein Information is simultaneous, not transmitted loosing time and energy. I have performed such as appreciated experiment last Noel, and termed it Lory’s Experiment, according to the name of my nephew, who suggested it to me. have posted a lot of news announcing it. For instance, See URLs: ; , ; .

    One complete article, unfortunately written in Italian,posted in numerous websites, is following:Stagnaro Sergio e Paolo Manzelli. L’Esperimento di Lory. Scienza e Conoscenza, N° 23, 13 Marzo 2008.

    Due to the positive, favorable influence, e.g., in both clinical research and bedside diagnosing (Bibliography in my website: 16 articles), Lory’s Experiment, so I think based on my experience on normal and patients, is worthy of critical diacussion.
