 Symmetry and Symmetry Breaking
According to Curie, symmetry breaking has the following role: for the occurrence of a phenomenon in a medium, the original symmetry group of the medium must be lowered (broken, in today's terminology) to the symmetry group of the phenomenon (or to a subgroup of the phenomenon's symmetry group) by the action of some cause.
Generally, the breaking of a certain symmetry does not imply that no symmetry is present, but rather that the situation where this symmetry is broken is characterized by a lower symmetry than the situation where this symmetry is not broken.
Spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB) occurs in a situation where, given a symmetry of the equations of motion, solutions exist which are not invariant under the action of this symmetry without any explicit asymmetric input (whence the attribute “spontaneous”).

 Breaking the Waves
Breaking the Waves, a powerful fable from Danish director Lars von Trier (Zentropa, The Kingdom) is as daunting as it is satisfying.

Without resort to mere words, von Trier breaks the bounds of narrative and presents a resolution that's as troublesome as it is fulfilling.

 Breaking   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Breaking an object is a good way to demonstrate concentration, power, focus, speed and precision on non-living objects, without injuring oneself (one hopes) or another.
You'll use an object that is easy to break, like a predictable re-breakable board, instead of directly trying to break a thick board with uneven knots or sap spots, and you should start with a technique in which you feel confident.
This spring co-efficient manifests itself in the break technique; if you were to look at a super-super-super-slow-motion up-close video clip of a wood (or ceramic or tile or ice) board being broken, you will note that the board does not break at the point of impact - it "gives" a little (however microscopically).

 Breaking the Waves (1996)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
'Breaking The Waves' was made before the Dogme manifesto was formulated, but it can be seen as a step in that direction, with its use of documentary techniques as opposed to the flamboyant and highly stylized approach of von Trier's earlier films.
The less you know about this movie the more powerful it will be, and even a jaded cynic like myself was surprised at how effective its spiritual theme was.
To me 'Breaking The Waves' is a much better more than von Trier's better known 'Dancer In The Dark', and Watson's performance makes Bjork's look like that of an enthusiastic but not very talented amateur (which of course, is exactly what she is).

 Americans for a Free Republic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Breaking the Demopublican Monopoly is a manual for realistically achievable political change in the U.S. It's core truth can be summed up in one single quote: "Without a credible third party in the [US presidential] race, dictatorship looms over the horizon." Nothing said in U.S. politics over the past 100 years has been more true!
After reading Breaking the Demopublican Monopoly, a quote from Henry David Thoreau comes to mind: "There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." This simple, yet elegant political platform, in my view, strikes at the root of the problem.
Breaking the Demopublican Monopoly, by Nelson Hultberg, clearly illustrates the serious situation facing this republic.

 Breaking spaghetti   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Bent dry spaghetti do not break in half but instead in three or more pieces.
With the aim to explain this surprising phenomenon, we studied a related problem, namely the dynamics of an elastic rod that is bent quasi-statically and then suddenly set free.
The multiple breaking of bent rods, like dry spaghetti pasta, can then be understood as a cascade of releases (loss of cohesion upon breakings) followed by stress increases leading to new cracks.
