If photons exist that allow you to see what is in front of and around you, then photinos, their superpartners also exist and allow you to somehow sense what is beyond the functioning of photons on the electromagnetic spectrum.
Let our eyes instead be like functional photinos that laser beam through the streets, board rooms, classrooms, television programs, radio broadcasts, etc., to see panoramically through the functions of racism and oppression, never blind to the true nature of people, places, or things until the struggle is won.
Patrice Michaels, soprano; Kuang-Hao Huang, piano; Zach Brock, violin; Nicholas Photinos, cello.
Michaels refers to pianist Kuang-Hao Huang, violinist Zach Brock, and cellist Nicholas Photinos as her "Dream Team," and thanks them for their "virtuosity, expressivity, and personal warmth which has encouraged and challenged me to further integrate my own forms of expression--so much that my range of vocal 'behaviors' turned out to be even broader than I initially intended." Listeners are served up a spectacular example of such musical daring in the opening track of the release, Tibor Harsanyi's "Vocalise." As the soprano first begins singing this playful piece, one hears a voice that is rich, warm, and clearly "classical" in its training and ever-so-slightly out of place, even if her sense of rhythm and style is perfect.

Here, researchers may yet catch their first fleeting views of axions, squarks, sleptons, photinos, winos, zinos and other particles that populate proposed theories attempting to extend the standard model.
Another suggestion for the exotic radiation is photinos. One of the attempts to unify all of physics in a single theory are the supersymmetry theories, which propose that every known particle has a supersymmetric partner.
WIMP is a generic term; a specific kind of particle that could fill the bill is a hypothetical one known as a photino. However, another argument, recently published, avers that photinos living in the center of the sun could not be responsible for lessening the neutrino flux.
