In science:

DAMA observes an annual modulation in their event rate, as might be expected from dark matter scatterings, while CoGeNT has reported evidence for a similar modulation.
On the DAMA and CoGeNT Modulations
Two DM direct detection experiments, namely DAMA and CoGeNT [5, 6], have published data or presented preliminary results demonstrating evidence for such an annual modulation.
On the DAMA and CoGeNT Modulations
Interestingly DAMA and CoGeNT have both produced evidence for an annual modulation signature for dark matter, as expected due to the relative motion of the Earth with respect to the dark matter halo.
Beyond QCD: A Composite Universe

Have we found conclusive evidence for dark matter through direct detection experiments?
Since evidences from CoGeNT and DAMA matching in the WIMP mass of 10 GeV/c2 have not been checked in the SD mode, we calculated at this mass point to find out the agreeable region in the σp -σn area.
