Which of the Basic Assumptions of Modern Physics are Wrong?
There’s something unnerving about unifying physics. The two theories that need to be unified, quantum field theory and Einstein’s general theory of relativity, are both highly successful. Both make predictions good to as many decimal places as experimentalists can manage. Both are grounded in compelling principles. Both do have flaws — including an unfortunate tendency to produce the number ∞ — but those flaws remain safely behind the scenes, never undermining the theories’ empirical successes.

Scientist claims she has mathematical proof black holes cannot exist
She said it is impossible for stars to collapse and form a singularity
Professor Laura Mersini-Houghton said she is still in 'shock' from the find
Previously, scientists thought stars much larger than the sun collapsed under their own gravity and formed black holes when they died
During this process they release a type of radiation called Hawking radiation
But new research claims the star would lose too much mass and wouldn't be able to form a black hole
If true, the theory that the universe began as a singularity, followed by the Big Bang, could also be wrong

Happy Birthday to the U.S. Navy !!
The United States Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which the Continental Congress established on 13 October 1775, by authorizing the procurement and dispatch of two armed vessels to cruise in search of munitions ships supplying the British Army in America. The legislation also established a Naval Committee to supervise the work. All together, the Continental Navy numbered some fifty ships over the course of the American War for Independence, with approximately twenty warships active at its maximum strength.

The vision of Indonesia as a “global maritime nexus” (poros maritim dunia) gained prominence during the presidential campaign and seems set to become a central focus. While Indonesia’s emergence as a maritime power is by no means assured—it will face many challenges ahead—we may be witnessing the dawn of a new era in Indonesian history.
The Falklands War ended with a decisive British victory over thirty years ago. Nevertheless, the war remains alive in the imagination of analysts and historians. Although the conflict happened outside of the normal “zones of crisis,” it has long held the attention of students of warfare. The war, which involved a conflict over territory between two established nation-states with large, capital intensive military establishments, seems almost quaint today. However, the issues that brought about the war, the manner in which the war was fought, and the situation the war left behind continue to hold important lessons for practitioners of foreign policy today.

Considering the political and military aspects as stated above, the strategy planned by Argentine in “seizing back Falklands” from British seemed to be logical. At first, the invasion plan to Falklands and South Georgia would be executed by Argentine between the months of July to October 1982. Its considerations were as follows:

Keamanan dan keselamatan jalur pelayaran -Sea Lanes Of Communication atau SLOC - yang melewati Laut China Selatan, akhir-akhir ini mulai terusik sehubungan dengan potensi konflik yang selama berpuluh tahun terpendam, mulai muncul ke permukaan. Banyak faktor yang menjadi penyebabnya, mulai dari politik, ekonomi, pertahanan, hukum internasional dan lain-lain, ditambah dengan banyaknya aktor yang terlibat di dalamnya. Apabila dikaji secara mendalam, ancaman terhadap keamanan dan keselamatan di jalur pelayaran tersebut hanyalah akibat dari pertikaian masalah kepemilikan terhadap dua buah gugusan pulau yang berlokasi di Laut China Selatan, yaitu Kepulauan Spratly dan Paracel.

Asal muasal kemunculan doktrin adalah terbitnya “instruksi-perkelahian” ( fighting instruction ) bagi tentara Inggris. Bahkan negara-negara besar manapun juga banyak belajar dari Inggris .Pengalaman angkatan laut Inggris di era PD I & II, menunjukkan doktrin yang ditulis lebih banyak berorientasi pada doktrin angkatan .Sedangkan doktrin-doktrin yang tercipta mulai dari doktrin tingkat taktis dan operasional bisa saja berwujud doktrin yang tertulis, instruksi tempur bahkan instruksi lesan dari para komandan di lapangan.
