This was followed by the second partition of Poland. The Second Partition accounted for an area of about 115,000 square miles.

The partition treaty was ratified by its signatories on September 22, 1772. Frederick II of Prussia was elated with his success; Prussia took most of German-speaking Royal Prussia (without Danzig) that stood between its possessions in the Kingdom of Prussia and the Margraviate of Brandenburg, as well as Ermland (Warmia), northern areas of Greater Poland along the Noteć River,  and parts of Kuyavia.

US Congress passes the Cable Act, under which an American woman who marries an ‘alien’ will not lose citizenship; neither will a woman marrying an American automatically become a citizen

The Cable Act passed by Congress In United States was also known as the Married Women’s Independent Nationality Act or Women’s Citizenship Act. Before 1922, a woman marrying a foreign man loses her citizenship. The law repealed sections 3 and 4 of the Expatriation Act of 1907. The law is named for Ohio representative John L. Cable, who proposed the legislation.

The Cable Act also had other limitations: a woman lost her citizenship upon marriage to an alien ineligible to citizenship; a woman could keep her US citizenship after marrying a non-Asian alien if she stayed within the United States. However, if she married a foreigner and lived on foreign soil for two years, she could still lose her right to US nationality.

CERN scientists announce their discovery of neutrinos breaking the speed of light

The OPERA experiment mistakenly observed neutrinos appearing to travel faster than light. before the mistake was discovered, the result was considered anomalous because speeds higher than that of light in a vacuum are generally thought to violate special relativity, a cornerstone of the modern understanding of physics for over a century. The results were announced in September 2011

Later the team reported two flaws in their equipment set-up that had caused errors far outside their original confidence interval: a fiber optic cable attached improperly, which caused the faster-than-light measurements, and a clock oscillator ticking too fast. The errors were first confirmed by OPERA after a ScienceInsider report accounting for these two sources of error eliminated the faster-than-light results
