An 18-year old Barnard student passed away after being stabbed in Morningside Park tonight during what police believe to be an armed robbery and assault.
Bwoggers Aditi Misra, Eliza Staples, and Sarah Perry went to an advance screening of Little Women exclusively for Barnard students. Here are their thoughts on the experience.
Two out of only 46 American college students selected, seniors Amar Bhardwaj and Young Joon Kim were recently awarded the title of 2020 Marshall Scholar.
Bwogger Miyoki Walker has noticed something troubling around campus lately: everyone’s wearing $1,500 coats. Here are a few reasons why she thinks this is stupid and hates it. 1. They cost a ridiculous amount of money. There’s no point in proving
While we in America celebrate the signing of some yellowed document, physicists around the globe are engaging in a less nationalistic, but equally historic celebration: the elusive Higgs Boson, the “missing piece” in our current understanding of the subatomic world, has been confirmed to five standard deviations of significance. This discovery was made using the […]
In what can only be described as an atypical installment of the World Leaders Forum, yesterday afternoon a panel of physicists and science writers gathered in Low Library to discuss “What If We Find the Higgs Particle? And What If We Don’t?” Amateur Higgs Hunter Brian Wagner was in attendance. An uncomfortably warm—and surprisingly crowded—Low […]
When they aren’t whispering stories in our ear, Professors enjoy cooking up knowledge in the lab. In this weekly feature, Propugnator Scientiae Zach Kagan gives the low-down on what scientists at Columbia have been up to. In a new experiment neutrinos are detected to be still traveling faster than the speed of light. That’s right, the not-sure-if-trolling […]
If you give a mouse a Tevatron, and that mouse is an experimental physicist, it will ask for more money to build an enormous super collider beneath Switzerland and France, telling you that it needs more energy to confirm its theory on what makes the Universe do its thing. At least, that’s roughly how it […]
