“A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man’s brow.” Ovid, Roman Poet (43 BC – 17 AD).

Weak proton charge
A team at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator
Facility has measured the weak charge of the proton by
scattering a beam of spin-polarized electrons from stationary protons in a
liquid hydrogen target. The value is 0.0719 ± 0.0045.
