  • Physicists close in on elusive subatomic particle--video extra

    GENEVA (AP) — Physicists are closing in on an elusive subatomic particle that, if found, would confirm a long-held understanding about why matter has mass and how the universe's fundamental building blocks behave.

    Few people outside physics can fully comprehend the search for the Higgs boson, which was first hypothesized 40 years ago. But proving that the "God particle" actually exists would be "a vindication of the equations we've been using all these years," said one Nobel laureate.

    Scientists announced Tuesday that they had found hints but no definitive proof of the particle that is believed to be a basic component of the universe. They hope to determine whether it exists by next year.

  • No delays or closings reported

    The Los Alamos Public Schools will be on a regular schedule for Tuesday. Likewise, the Los Alamos National Lab has not posted any notice of delay or closure as of 4:30 a.m.

  • LA finishes fifth at Jaguar tournament

    SANTA FE – It was a long day but it was a good day.
    After struggling at the 2010 Jaguar Invitational Tournament, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team had a top-five showing at the 2011 event, picking up seven medals.
    The Hilltoppers finished Saturday’s Jaguar Invitational with 110.0 points, good enough for fifth place. The Hilltoppers actually started the final round in third place, but strong finishes by both Deming and Capital, along with an unfortunate turn of events for Los Alamos 220-pounder Diego Madrid, saw the team slip.
    “(Seven) medals is pretty good,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Geyer said. “Last year we just did one and this year’s tournament I thought was tougher than last year’s.”

  • Griffin tops Luck to win Heisman Trophy

    NEW YORK (AP) — Robert Griffin III beat out preseason favorite Andrew Luck for the Heisman Trophy, dazzling voters with his ability to throw, run and lead Big 12 doormat Baylor into the national rankings.
    The junior quarterback known as RG3 became the first Heisman winner from Baylor on Saturday night by a comfortable cushion over the Stanford star.
    Griffin started the season on the fringe of the Heisman conversation, a talented and exciting player on a marginal team, while Luck was already being touted as a No. 1 NFL draft pick.
    Draft day might very well still belong to Luck, but Griffin diverted the Heisman to Waco, Texas, to a school that has never had a player finish better than fourth in the voting — and that was 48 years ago.
