Gender strikes in CERN

In fact, that string-gender workshop has_some interesting presentations after all :-)
(Interesting slides have been removed from the workshop page and Prof.Strumia has been suspended from any activity at CERN with immediate effect.)

Well, he has made two big mistakes.
  1. He has formulated his presentation in a very provocative way. He cannot expect anything else than an angry reaction after such provocation.
  2. He has attacked his colleague by claiming that she has been hired instead of him because she is a woman. Of course he cannot prove that.
He should have limited himself into presentation of facts, statistical analyses and existing hypothesis, which are relevant and worth discussing (like Variability Hypothesis or Heterodoxy paradox).

Quantum Gender Strings

It looks like strings can freely choose their gender too. Well, being quantum objects, they can certainly be in a state of a superposition of many genders. But what happens when they interact with another object ? Decoherence and a definitive choice of a single gender :-)
Or, is "gender" a new quantum number ?

Two Germanies

A contribution to the discussions about the claim, that differences between East and West part of Germany are a consequence of communism.
This is how Germans voted for NSDAP before the War. The darker color means the stronger support for NSDAP.
And a possible explanation - an anti-correlation between the support for the Nazis and the proportion of the Catholics.
