Confirmation came today that the particle discovered last year IS the Higgs boson. "The preliminary results with the full 2012 data set are magnificent and to me it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs boson though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is," said CMS spokesperson Joe Incandela.

Open Source Citation Editing Tool
Over the past year Mendeley has collaborated with Columbia University Libraries on a project funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to create a new open source CSL Editor. It's the first true 'what-you-see-is-what-you-get' (WYSIWYG) citation style editor for open source CSL citation styles. This open source tool is now integrated into the latest release of Mendeley Desktop. The code for the CSL Editor is available under the MIT license.

Energy production accounted for 15% of the world’s total water use in 2010 according to the IEA’s (International Energy Agency) most recent annual World Energy Outlook report.
The sector’s water consumption is set to increase 85% by 2035, as demand for power rises by more than a third, and thirstier types of energy production, such as fossil fuels and biofuels, are increasingly used.
The Science and Engineering Libraries are offering over 30 workshops in October during the Fall 2012 Term.
