Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

ScienceDaily: Chaos=Order: Physicists Make Baffling Discovery

"Da police are not here to create disorder; dere here to preserve disorder." ? Richard J. Daley, Chicago mayor, explaining to the media the role of the police during the riotous 1968 Democratic National Convention.
Police keep order. That's why, for example, they issue tickets for "disturbing the peace." Thus the only logical conclusion to Mayor Daley's famous quote above ? other than dismissing it as the result of a tangled tongue ? is sometimes disorder spawns order.
Sounds impossible, right?
According to a computational study conducted by a group of physicists at Washington University in St. Louis, one may create order by introducing disorder.
