    I think he was referring to this:

    Yeah - I saw the article but then could not find it again to provide the link

    Not exactly a "new property" though.

    From ABC news (Australia): "Children who have a hyperactive immune system when they are born are more likely to develop food allergies"

    Not surprising if true. Report in "Science Translational Medicine"

    Laurence Krauss has tweeted that the LIGO team have found gravitational waves *rumour*!

    Bets on announcement of discovery of gravitational waves later today? Although some years ago some guy (Joseph H. Taylor) won a Nobel Prize for his extremely accurate measurements of a pulsar losing energy that showed that the amount of energy lost per period of time was explained perfectly if gravity waves were the cause... or something like that...

    I don't think anyone in the sciences are saying there is no such thing as gravity waves, only how hard they are to detect and to quantify, such as the G4V version V GR. Apparently the way you try to detect the waves will change the expected results since the two kind of waves are mutually exclusive and takes different techniques to observe.

    News at 11. Literally in this case

    I've never heard of G4V, can you give its full name without abbreviating it. I saw the link to the U-Tube video but do not have sound so there is no point in me trying to follow it. I tried putting G4V into Wikipedia and got a district in Germany...
