Join Brian Greene on a wild ride into the weird realm of quantum physics, which governs the universe on the tiniest of scales. Greene brings quantum mechanics to life in a nightclub like no other, where objects pop in and out of existence and things over here can affect others over there, instantaneously—without anything crossing the space between them. A century ago, during the initial shots in the quantum revolution, the best minds of a generation—including Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr—squared off in a battle for the soul of physics. How could the rules of the quantum world, which work so well to describe the behavior of individual atoms and their components, appear so dramatically different from the everyday rules that govern people, planets, and galaxies? Quantum mechanics may be counter intuitive, but it’s one of the most successful theories in the history of science, making predictions that have been confirmed to better than one part in a billion, while also launching the technological advances at the heart of modern life, like computers and cell phones. But even today, even with such profound successes, the debate sill rages over what quantum mechanics implies for the true nature of reality.

November 16 2009 – Dispatches investigates one of the most powerful and influential political lobbies in Britain, which is working in support of the interests of the State of Israel.

Despite wielding great influence among the highest realms of British politics and media, little is known about the individuals and groups which collectively are known as the pro-Israel lobby.

Political commentator Peter Oborne sets out to establish who they are, how they are funded, how they work and what influence they have, from the key groups to the wealthy individuals who help bankroll the lobbying.

He investigates how accountable, transparent and open to scrutiny the lobby is, particularly in regard to its funding and financial support of MPs.

The pro-Israel lobby aims to shape the debate about Britain’s relationship with Israel and future foreign policies relating to it.

Oborne examines how the lobby operates from within parliament and the tactics it employs behind the scenes when engaging with print and broadcast media.

    UNtil Americans compel th U.s. government to cut Israel loose, this nation will be in grave danger. Think 9/11 when Mossad, the CIA and Cheney collaborated in MURDERING 3,000 Americans an plunging this nation into 2 Middle East wars.
    When Israel attacks Iran, it will start WWIII and end the sway of 2 of most RACIST nations on Earth – the US & Israel.

    To state that Israel and the USA are the two most racist nations on earth defies reality in that it completely ignores social reality of the vast majority of the eastern hemisphere ie: China. Be careful what you wish for, as you just might get it.

    Time for the U.S. government to turn inward and pay attention to its own nation. We have become the disgrace in the Middle East which at one time respected our nation, until we permit the little state of Israel, which would not be a state without all the financial and other support we give it.
    We have an unrealistic debit which looks like it will never be paid, yet we continue to give Billions to Israel, and other nations, when that money should stay at home to pay off our bills and keep our own nation debt free.

    Why do you state that “this video does not exist ” when it is available via search engine ? ?
