How Companies Block Your Day in Court
Your checking account balance is wiped out because of a massive fraud. The bank failed to protect you, but you can’t sue. Why? You’ve signed a contract barring you from taking it to court.
If that sounds surprising, you have company. Three out of four people surveyed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau last year did not know whether they had signed away their right to bring a lawsuit against a financial company. That’s because these restrictions—known as mandatory arbitration clauses—are usually hidden in contract fine print. Yet they’re pervasive. If you watch videos on Netflixor shop on Amazon, you’re governed by one of these clauses. Ditto, most likely, if you have a cell phone plan with a major provider; you may even see them in nursing-home and employment contracts.

Don't be fooled by Large Hadron Collider at CERN results
The Higgs Fake - How Particle Physicists Fooled the Nobel Committee.
Results from the Large Hadron Collider show that a "bump" in the machine's data, previously rumored to represent a new particle, has gone away.
The discovery of new particles, which could trigger a paradigm shift in physics, may still be years away.
All the latest LHC results are being discussed at a conference in Chicago.
David Charlton of Birmingham University, leader of the Atlas experiment at the LHC, told BBC News that everyone working on the project was disappointed.
"There was a lot of excitement when we started to collect data. But in the [latest results] we see no sign of a bump, there's nothing.
"It is a pity because it would have been a really fantastic thing if there had been a new particle."
Speaking to journalists in Chicago at the International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP), Prof Charlton said it was a remarkable coincidence - but purely a coincidence - that two separate LHC detectors, Atlas and CMS, picked up matching "bumps".
"It just seems to be a statistical fluke, that the two experiments saw something at the same mass.
"Coincidences are always strange when they happen - but we've been looking very hard at our data to make sure we fully understand them, and we don't see anything in the new sample."
