Educator Raymond Volkas Tells New Scientist Magazine of Breakthroughs with Renowned Higgs Boson Particle in Superconductors

Raymond VolkasProfessor Raymond Volkas, Head of School of the University of Melbourne, made recent observations about the Higgs boson, or what has become known by many as the “God particle.” The atom, which has been speculated to be the very unit that is solely responsible for all the mass in the universe, was revealed to have a ‘cousin’ last month, and Professor Volkas made headway on the correlations and likenesses between the former and the latter.

From newscientist.com:

A weird theoretical cousin of the Higgs boson, one that inspired the decades-long hunt for the elusive particle, has been properly observed for the first time. The discovery bookends one of the most exciting eras in modern physics.

The Higgs field, which gives rise to its namesake boson, is credited with giving other particles mass by slowing their movement through the vacuum of space. First proposed in the 1960s, the particle finally appeared at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland, in 2012, and some of the theorists behind it received the 2013 Nobel prize in physics.

But the idea was actually borrowed from the behaviour of photons in superconductors, metals that, when cooled to very low temperatures, allow electrons to move without resistance.

Near zero degrees kelvin, vibrations are set up in the superconducting material that slow down pairs of photons travelling through, making light act as though it has a mass.

This effect is closely linked to the idea of the Higgs – “the mother of it actually,” says Raymond Volkas at the University of Melbourne in Australia.

Those vibrations are the mathematical equivalent of Higgs particles, says Ryo Shimano at the University of Tokyo, who led the team that made the new discovery. The superconductor version explains the virtual mass of light in a superconductor, while the particle physics Higgs field explains the mass of W and Z bosons in the vacuum.

Watch Professor Volkas discussing the fine points of the Higgs boson with ABC News in September 2013. Follow him on Twitter @RVolkas or connect with him on LinkedIn.

Michael Waring Shares Updates on Australia’s Postal System and the Country’s Number One Brand

Michael WaringWorldwide Branding member Michael Waring, a Postal Officer and Communications Specialist serving the Delivery Division of the Australia Post, is in charge of overseeing the creation of the Code of Ethics in a corporate organization to strengthen cultural pillars of success in the workplace. With a wealth of knowledge and experience in his field, he recently received a 25th anniversary plaque from the Australia Post, as well.

Mr. Waring recently announced the latest updates made at the Australia Post on his website:

Over the last 10 years the acceleration of decline of small letter has continued but AP has prepared well in putting brakes on these changes.

The first launched earlier this year was Posts rebranding of its freight fleet.

The blue trucks with Startrack emblem are keeping up to increasing demand of Internet Shopping and voyage of parcel across many networks.

The fact is parcels are outweighing letters for first time in history but the humble postman has been part of these changes delivering more packets and scanning articles for reciept at point of delivery.

Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour, a former New York Banker, says he is preparing new products and solutions to allieviate further changes in delivery of mail and e-commerce solutions for customers.

StarTrack will not just be a local solution but will handle our International customers’ needs in Australia giving Post that added edge.

Apple and Australian Pharmaceuticals are just two important customers.

Sydney and Melbourne will complete newly fitted extensions with new cutting edge parcel sorting delivery technology and new bar coding with speed accuracy set to move parcels quicker and smarter than ever.

This also means the human resources of Australia Post need to be at their best so Code of Ethics needs to be implemented well and Safety remain on top of agenda so effect on organisation is limited and brand remains best in country.
