I have heard Sasha Modolo protesting against Nizzolo, but I then switched the TV to another program, that is my Windows PC.

I am not pushing any delusion. I did not start this discussion about belief in God. Somebody else started it and I replied.
Tullio
You started it.

Many scientists believe in God, while many others do not. This is only a personal matter, and has nothing to do with science.

Bravo Nibali, but he was helped by Kruijswijk's mistake. I wish Steven could run the Tour, but his team is weak, as evidenced in the descent from Colle dell'Agnello, while Nibali has strong companions like Michele Scarponi.

I think that Erwin Schroedinger, a respected scientist, whose equation is the basis of all structural chemistry and molecular biology, was not expressing fairy tales, but only his faith. Faith is not a fairy tale.

Yes, but who created the laws of physics and biology? That is the question. At the end of his book "What is life?" Erwin Schroedinger wrote that God created life with the help of quantum mechanics.

There is a thread in Number Crunching about problems with Ubuntu and ATI/AMD boards. I am using SuSE Leap 42.1 and have no problem on my HD 7770.

They might copy the "trickle" mechanism from CPDN, by which your credits go up as long as you keep crunching even before finishing a long task.

What is being done by SpaceX and Orbital Sciences Corporation reminds me of an opinion expressed by Freeman J. Dyson in his book "Disturbing the Universe" in 1979. I have the Italian edition, otherwise I would quote the last paragraph of Chapter "Saturn 1970". Read it if you have the English edition.

Still another Falcon 9 success, putting a telecommunication satellite in a geostationary orbit, and landing the first stage on a barge. Bravo Elon Musk, but I cannot afford to buy your Tesla Car, it costs too much for me.

There is a trend in most newspaper articles and on health magazines about being a little overweight is good for you, especially if you have an accident or a major operation. Doctors do not know why.

Risoul, France
Nibali wins
Kwijswiik falls descending from Colle dell'Agnello and loses the Maglia Rosa.

The new Maglia Rosa is Esteban Chavez, Colombia
Nibali is second, Kwijswijk third
Tomorrow another climb to Sant'Anna di Vinadio, Italia
Tomorrow Nibali shall attack again, and Kwijswijk shall follow him

I too have a SUN workstation with a 2 core Opteron 1210 at 1.8 GHZ. It has been working 24/7 since January 2008 with no problem. I recently installed an AMD/ATI HD 7770 graphic board in it and it is crunching both SETI@home and Einstein@home GPU tasks. OS is SuSE Leap 42.1. SuSE recently upgraded its kernel and I had to recompile the kernel modules for Virtual Box.

It really has a 39 meters mirror. Incidentally, when Italy was not yet part of the European Southern Observatory I published on the Mondadori Science and Technology Yearbook 1978 an article by Adriaan Blaauw on ESO. I wonder if this had any part in the decision of Italian astronomers to join ESO.

A NASA scientist says that dark matter could consist of black holes created in the first second after the Big Bang. This because the lumpiness of the X radiation detected by the Chandra telescope corresponds to that of the cosmic infrared background, pointing to a common cause. The argument is discussed on the NASA site and the idea is contained in an article published on May 24 in Astrophysical Journal Letters.
