Gordon Kane, Distinguished University Professor of Physics at University of Michigan, wrote a text for TRF,
He gave a very similar presentation four days ago,
But why is this new version of his presentation even more interesting than the older ones?

There are many wrong things about the contemporary American Physical Society but I think that this particular prize is one of the APS activities that makes some sense and that is being done well.
Although I dislike honors and this $10,000 prize isn't even an enormous one, it seemed appropriate to me to mention Gordy's new diploma to make you sure that not every TRF guest blogger must inevitably be arrested with a planted cocaine in Argentina after an unsuccessful attempt to meet his hypothetical girlfriend who seems to be a supersymmetric model.
One may actually confront supersymmetric models on the paper, not just the Internet, and deduce some valid properties of our Universe out of them, whether or not this agreement is a coincidence or a consequence of the true validity of these models.
