image for Bernie Sanders First to Sign Pledge to Rally Behind Democratic Nominee

National progressive outfit Indivisible on Thursday launched a pledge compelling all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to rally behind the eventual nominee.

Bernie Sanders was the first to sign it, the group revealed.

The “We Are Indivisible” pledge asks for three commitments from him and any other prospective signers, as first reported by BuzzFeed News.

First, Indivisible’s pledge requests that candidates “make the primary constructive” by outlining their visions while respecting their opponents.

“I’ll support the ultimate Democratic nominee, whoever it is—period," the pledge also reads.

Sanders has consistently pledged to run a positive campaign and to support any eventual nominee, even referring to some of the competitors in the race as friends.

However, Sanders has never been shy about criticizing more establishment-aligned elements of the Democratic Party. »

Dark-matter detector observes exotic nuclear decay

Authored by

Majorana neutrinos mediate a type of nuclear decay called neutrinoless double-β decay, an example of which is neutrinoless double electron capture.

A crucial step towards observing this decay is to detect its standard-model equivalent: two-neutrino double electron capture.

The electromagnetic force and gravitational force, which we encounter in daily life, are long-range and can act over large distances. »
