US Elections - Fight for Jewish Votes

Subject of discussion in today's broadcast "Behind the News ماوراء الخبر" from Al-Jazeera, Arabic service, is the application of both candidates in the coming presidential elections to come to terms with Israel.

What is named "act" in the following translation because of missing precision in the original text is referring to Obama's signature of the new "U.S.-Israel Enhanced Security Act" the day before and which means more money for Israel's military. Obama's signature and Romney's visit to Israel should therefore be seen in the light of gaining votes from an influential Jewish community in the U.S.A. as represented by groups like the conservative "Christians United for Israel".

توقيع أوباما جاء قبل يوم واحد من زيارة منافسه في الانتخابات ميت رومني إلى إسرائيل

Obama already gave [his] signature the day before his competitor in the [coming] elections, Mitt Romney, [began] his visit to Israel.

مراقبون يربطون بين توقيع القانون و قرب موعد الانتخابات حيث يسعى أوباما للفوز بفترة ثانية

Observers are [considering a] connection between the signature of [the act *] and the near date of elections where Obama is striving for the success of a second period [as a president].

مراقبون: توقيع أوباما للقانون و زيارة رومني لإسرائيل يعكسان سعيهما لكسب أصوات اليهود

Observers: Obama's signature of [the act *] and Romney's visit to Israel are reflecting their application to benefit from Jewish votes.

باراك أوباما: القانون الجديد يعكس التزامنا الثابت بأمن إسرائيل

Barack Obama: The new act [*] is reflecting the persistent [actualization] for Israel's security.

القانون يتيح لإسرائيل الحصول على مزيد من الأسلحة و الذخائر الأمريكية

The act [*] allows Israel to obtain further weapons and U.S. [reserves].

Elementary Physics - Munich Strings 2012

On July 28, 2012, we enjoyed an academic highlight at Ludwig-Maximilian's University in Munich, Germany.

It was a public lecture on how modern string theory can be applied in the description of elementary particles and their behaviour in the frame of latest experiments carried out at the Large Hadron Collider LHC site of CERN, Geneva. At the end of an international symposium, two top referents from the front of either theoretical or experimental research provided an intelligible introduction into that difficult subject, thereby facing a numerous audience comprising all ages. It must be noted that almost every listener remained on his seat up to the last second, even though it was a difficult subject to learn about and the day was hot and sultry.

Prof. Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Director General of CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, spoke about "The 'World Machine' LHC at CERN - Insights into an Early Universe" in German. Later, theoretical physicist Prof. Edward Witten from the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University held his lecture on "String Theory And The Universe" in English.

The subject will be dealt with some time later in a special webpage. For a first approach to elementary particle physics, I recommend another blogspot of mine on the discovery of a particle suspected to be the Higgs boson.

Visitor access point to "blueprint news" related to the recommended link above. That visitor came today and has been identified as being from CERN. His or her position is near Annecy where the LHC should be located.
