The Tor Project has just released the beta version of Tor Messenger, a chat client that allows for anonymous, "off-the-record" chats based on Tor's secure browsing system. The instant messenger is a beta release more than a year in the making, and promises to create a more seamless, accessible way for people to chat securely on the web, built on the instant messaging client Instantbird but routing all traffic through Tor.

Figure 2 Schematic representation of practical and likely pathways of genetic modification in sheep and goats. Pronuclear injection (PNI) and nuclear transfer (NT) are the two primary procedures for the generation of live founders with desired genetic modifications. In addition to these two approaches, several new tools have emerged that increase the efficiency and simplify the process of mediating genetic modification. These tools include sperm-mediated gene transfer (SMGT), viral vectors, recombinases, transposons, RNA interference (RNAi), and endonucleases. These have served to mediate manipulations in a variety of cells and organs, including somatic cells, embryonic cells, embryos, spermatozoa, spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs), testes, mammary glands, and other targeted organs. Different procedures are involved in the delivery of DNA constructs as well as the various enzymes and systems that induce genetic modification events within genomes. PNI, cytoplasmic injection (CI), perivitelline space injection (PSI), and zona-free transduction (ZFT) have been used for the delivery to embryos, transfection (TF), and transduction (TD) for the delivery to cells, incubation (IC) for the delivery to spermatozoa, intratesticular injection (ITI) for the delivery to testes, intramammary injection (IMI) for the delivery to mammary glands, and direct injection (DI) for the delivery to targeted organs (mainly for medical purposes). In vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), artificial insemination (AI) or even natural mating (NM) have been used for the delivery of transgenic sperms that resulted from incubation treatment, male germ cell transplantation, or intratesticular injection. In the diagram, from left to right, red arrows indicate the uses of DNA constructs for mediating DNA modification, green arrows indicate the uses of viral vectors, yellow arrows indicate the uses of RNAi molecules via delivery by viral vectors, purple arrows indicate the uses of transposons, pink arrows indicate the uses of RNAi molecules via integration by transposons, tan arrows indicate the independent uses of RNAi molecules, light blue arrows indicate the uses of recombinases, and orange arrows indicate the uses of endonucleases. Isolation (I) of spermatogonial stem cells from transgenic males can be used via transplantation (T) into infertile males to generate donor-derived spermatogenesis, which can then be used to generate transgenic founders. Furthermore, isolation of cells from transgenic individuals can also be used by nuclear transfer (NT) to generate transgenic progeny. Other abbreviations used in the diagram include embryo transfer (ET), lactation (L), and delivery (D).

Cupertino-based Mpath, by contrast, has built a network of servers that allows PC owners to play flight simulator, action, adventure, role-playing and traditional board games over the Internet. The Mpath system, now in beta testing and expected to go public in the fall, allows members of a team to talk to each other across the Net while they play.

Wu made rapid progress in her education and her research. Although Lawrence was officially her supervisor, she also worked closely with the famous Italian physicist Emilio Segrè. She quickly became his favorite student and the two conducted studies on beta decay, including xenon, which would provide important results in the future of nuclear bombs.[36] According to Segrè, Wu was a popular student who was talented.[34][37] In his autobiography, Nobel laureate Luis Alvarez said of Wu,

Segrè recognized Wu's brilliance and compared her to Wu's heroine Marie Curie, whom Wu always quoted, but said that Wu was more "worldly, elegant, and witty."[38] Meanwhile, Lawrence described Wu as "the most talented female experimental physicist he had ever known, and that she would make any laboratory shine."[39] When it came time to present her thesis in 1940, it had two separate parts presented in very neat fashion. The first was on bremsstrahlung, the electromagnetic radiation produced by the deceleration of a charged particle when deflected by another charged particle, typically an electron by an atomic nucleus, with the latter being on radioactive Xe. She investigated the first study using beta-emitting phosphorus-32, a radioactive isotope easily produced in the cyclotron that Lawrence and his brother John H. Lawrence were evaluating for use in cancer treatment and as a radioactive tracer.[40] This marked Wu's first work with beta decay, a subject on which she would become an authority.[41][42]

In her post-war research, Wu, now an established physicist, continued to investigate beta decay. Enrico Fermi had published his theory of beta decay in 1934, but an experiment by Luis Walter Alvarez had produced results at variance with the theory.[82] Wu set out to repeat the experiment and verify the result.[83] Wu was already heavily invested in working on beta decay as she took on the subject at UC Berkeley.[84] In the year 1949, Wu completely established Fermi's theory and showed how beta decay worked, especially in creating electrons, neutrinos, and positrons.[85] Supposedly, most of the electrons should come out of the nucleus at high speeds.

After careful research, Wu suspected that the problem was that a thick and uneven film of copper(II) sulfate (CuSO4) was being used as a copper-64 beta ray source, which was causing the emitted electrons to lose energy. To get around this, she adapted an older form of the spectrometer, a solenoidal spectrometer. She added detergent to the copper sulfate to produce a thin, even film. She then demonstrated that the discrepancies observed were the result of experimental error; her results were consistent with Fermi's theory.[86] The speeds of the electrons that were commonly produced in experiments were now shown to be significantly slower. Thus by analyzing radioactive materials used by previous researchers, she proved that this was the cause of the problem and not from theoretical flaws. Wu thus established herself as the leading physicist on beta decay.[87][88] Her work on beta decay became hugely beneficial to her later research and to modern physics in general.[89]

Wu chose to do this by taking a sample of radioactive cobalt-60 and cooling it to cryogenic temperatures with liquid gases. Cobalt-60 is an isotope that decays by beta particle emission, and Wu was also an expert on beta decay. The extremely low temperatures were needed to reduce the amount of thermal vibration of the cobalt atoms to almost zero. Also, Wu needed to apply a constant and uniform magnetic field across the sample of cobalt-60 in order to cause the spin axes of the atomic nuclei to line up in the same direction. For this cryogenic work, she needed the facilities of the National Bureau of Standards and its expertise in working with liquid gases, and traveled to its headquarters in Maryland with her equipment to carry out the experiments.[93]

In recognition of their theoretical work, Lee and Yang were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1957.[106] Wu's critical contribution providing the experimental confirmation proving the CP violation through her rigorous experiment was omitted by the Nobel committee.[107][108] Yang and Lee tried to nominate Wu for a future Nobel prize and thanked her in their speeches. She was nominated at least seven times before 1966, when the Nobel committee announced they would conceal their list of nominees to avoid further public controversy.[109] 1988 Nobel laureate Jack Steinberger frequently called it the biggest mistake of the Nobel committee. Wu's role in the discovery was not publicly honored until 1978, when she was awarded the inaugural Wolf Prize.Wu's friend Pauli, who was notable for being the creator of the Pauli exclusion principle, was certain parity was true and was shocked with the discovery. He, like many other known physicists, lost a large hypothetical bet for wagering against the eventual outcome. He later wrote about his feelings on the discovery to Princeton colleague John M. Blatt: "I don't know whether anyone has written you as yet about the sudden death of parity. Miss Wu has done an experiment with beta-decay of oriented Co nuclei which shows that parity is not conserved in β decay. ... We are all rather shaken by the death of our well-beloved friend, parity."[110] He later became even more confounded when he learned that Wu was denied the Nobel prize, and even believed that he had predicted the event through his dream analysis conducted by Dr. Carl Gustav Jung.[111][112]

In December 1962, Wu experimentally demonstrated a universal form and more accurate version of Fermi's old beta decay model,[118] confirming the conserved vector current (CVC) hypothesis of Richard Feynman and Murray Gell-Mann on the road to the Standard Model. She would release the results in the succeeding year. In this experiment, she was approached by Gell-Mann after he and Feynman realized they needed an expert on experimental physics to prove their hypothesis. Gell-Mann pleaded to Wu, "How long did Yang and Lee pursue you to follow upon their work?"[119] Their hypothesis was influenced by Wu's demonstration that parity was not conserved, which brought other assumptions that physicists have made about the weak interaction into question. The question was if parity cannot be conserved in weak force interaction, then the conservation of charge conjugation could also be in dispute. Conservation and symmetry were basic laws that held true for electromagnetism, gravity, and the strong interaction, so it had been assumed for decades that they should also hold for the weak interaction until Wu debunked these laws. This was also crucial to the future discovery of the electroweak force. 041b061a72
