English, or other languages, are inadequate if you are trying to convey physics. Analogies sometimes work, but particle physics is built on a mostly successful model that is very foreign to most people. So if you are trying to explain something like the Higgs particle, a lot of handwaving takes place. Real handwaving.
Here a few particle physicists are asked to explain the Higgs in layman's terms. Around 9:45 it is set to music and at 11:15 (probably the best place to start) it is only gestures and Bach … some of the editing is clever,
There has been a lot of speculation on the Apple/Beats deal. In the end it is almost pocket change for Apple and I suspect much of the commentary misses the point of how crazy, relative to normal business, music is.
BioLite stoves are small wood (or a similar hydrocarbon) burning stoves that have a small fan to increase efficiency. The fan is powered by electricity generated directly by the heat of the fire. Some of the electricity can be used for light tasks like charging a phone. The company uses some of the profit to work on a scaled up stove aimed at the emerging world. They've recently announced a large model aimed at tailgaters and campers.
The small units sold very well in the Northeast after superstorm Sandy. When you don't have electricity for a few weeks even something like charging a phone becomes a very desirable luxury.
Fixing the emerging world cooking problem has been something of an industry since the 50s. Mirror based solar ovens and grills were a performance disaster that couldn't deal with traditional foods and cooking techniques. The approach turned to improving the efficiency of stoves, but these efforts have largely failed for cultural and culinary reasons. In recent years people have been trying culturally clueful design - often with the help of anthropologists and always with field testing. BioLite seems to be following the new approach.
