What is the love train? Imagine a locomotive that stops in every town, in every city, in every country, filled with people who share the same vision: to be the change they wish to see in the world; to make the world a better place for each and every person who lives in it. A place filled with courage, strength, respect, acceptance, kindness, generosity, fearlessness, and most importantly, love. Want a ticket? Open your heart. Seek guidance when you are struggling. Take care of your body. Fill your brain with knowledge and your soul with light and inspiration. Explore your spirituality. Trust your instincts. Transform negative thoughts into positive ones. Water your internal garden so that you may continue to grow. Accept who you are and embrace your individuality. Be honest. Stand strong. Speak your mind. Love yourself.

Barbara Oakley is an associate professor of engineering at Oakland University in Michigan. She is the author of the first seriously funny book about evil, Evil Genes: Why Rome Fell, Hitler Rose, Enron Failed, and My Sister Stole My Mother's Boyfriend. (Her sister really did steal her mother's boyfriend, and far more besides.) Barbara has worked as a translator on Soviet trawlers, a radio operator at the South Pole Station in Antarctica, a teacher in China and an Army officer in Germany, among other adventures. She is at work on her next book, which will also provide an unusual take on people. Here she writes about Ayn Rand, objectivism and Atlas Shrugged.

Edmund Kean: "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard."

I can hear the buzz of radio voices,
persistent as insects
on all the frequencies
of madness.

‘God Particle’ Expected to Be Found Soon. Higgs predicted the existence of the boson while working at the University of Edinburgh to explain how atoms _ and the objects they make up _ have weight. Without the particle, the basic physics theory _ the "standard model" _ lacks a crucial element, because it fails to explain how other subatomic particles _ such as quarks and electrons _ have mass. The Higgs theory is that the bosons create a field through which the other particles pass.

Leading engineers and scientists identify advances that could improve quality of life.
