Murray Gell-Mann, a physicist who theorized the existence of the quark and won a Nobel Prize for his method of classifying particles, has died at age 89, the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) said.

Considered among the most important physicists of the 20th century, the American scientist theorized in the 1960s that subatomic particles -- protons and neutrons -- were composed of paired subunits he called quarks.

Experiments later confirmed the existence of the particles, which are a continuing subject of study by physicists including those at the Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful proton smasher straddling the French-Swiss border.

The funeral details have been released of tragic Voice of Ireland singer Andrew Mann Andrew Mann, the Voice and 2012 Eurosong contestant died on Saturday – just over three months after his tragic girlfriend Alli McDonnell. The Dublin model and mum-of-four took her own life last February. The notice reads that dad-of-two Andrew will be ‘very sadly missed’ by his ‘Mum and Dad, children, sisters, brothers, their partners, nieces, nephews, aunt, uncles, cousins, relatives and a very large circle of friends’. His funeral will be held at the the Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel, Churchview Road, Killiney arriving for 11am Requiem Mass with funeral immediately afterwards to Shanganagh Cemetery, Shankill.

Amid an explosion of research into what makes up matter in the 1950s and 1960s, Gell-Mann came up with a criteria for putting particles in groups of eight based on characteristics like electric charge and spin.

He called it the "eightfold way," Caltech said, and was awarded the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physics for the innovation.

Born in New York City on September 15, 1929, Gell-Mann was encouraged to study physics by his father, and earned a doctorate in the subject from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1951.

He taught at Caltech in Pasadena, California from 1955 until his retirement in 1993.

"Dr Gell-Mann had this clear vision and penetrating insight to look through the large amounts of data that were coming from experiments and make sense of it," Hirosi Ooguri, a professor at Caltech and director of the school's Walter Burke Institute for Theoretical Physics, said in an obituary published by the university.

"He opened a new paradigm in particle physics."

Climate change is becoming a defining issue of 2020.
Democratic voters actually care about climate change. 2020 candidates are responding. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks former Vice President Joe Biden’s $5 trillion climate plan — one of the first major policies his campaign has released — is a “start,” albeit one that needs to be scaled up dramatically. “I think what that has shown is a dramatic shift in the right direction, but we need to keep pushing for a plan that is at the scale of the problem,” Ocasio-Cortez, progressive superstar and co-sponsor of the Green New Deal, told reporters on Tuesday.
