THE SPHINX –THIS AND THAT

The Editor:  Lois. some of our loyal readers want to know where you find article information.

News Cat:  It for sure isn’t on your regular TV or radio stations.   They are so slanted that they would make a Muslim eat Porky Pig.

Here are some interesting articles.  Someone should sue Google, like a bartender-serving too much liquor, when a relative is killed by someone watching Google while driving.

I like this one, the cost of flying Air Force One, Two, and Three has increased to almost a quarter of a million dollars an hour,  depending on how many family members or pets fly to the same place a few hours apart.

The Editor:   How do you stay positive, Lois, with all the stupid things going on around you ?

Happy Cat:  I just take care of my family and friends, from my Colorado vacation tree.

The doctors are germ carriers, like Typhoid Mary, and your cars can be opened by anyone with a telephone.

You might be better off just meditating/praying.

Gamma Rays from Galactic Center Dark Matter?

Explanation: What is creating the gamma rays at the center of our Galaxy? Excitement is building that one answer is elusive dark matter. Over the past few years the orbiting Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has been imaging our Galaxy’s center in gamma-rays. Repeated detailed analyses indicate that the region surrounding the Galactic center seems too bright to be accounted by known gamma-ray sources. A raw image of the Galactic Center region in gamma-rays is shown above on the left, while the image on the right has all known sources subtracted — leaving an unexpected excess. An exciting hypothetical model that seems to fit the excess involves a type of dark matter known as WIMPs, which may be colliding with themselves to create the detected gamma-rays. This hypothesis is controversial, however, and debate and more detailed investigations are ongoing. Finding the nature of dark matter is one of the great quests of modern science, as previously this unusual type of cosmologically pervasive matter has shown itself only through gravitation.
