The observation of Υ{hooked}(9.5) suggests that the -onium of at least one new quark has been discovered. We discuss the production and decays of the lowest-lying vector states. Recent observations have no indications of right-handed currents in antineutrino-nucleon scattering. We discuss the properties of new states made of t (charge = 2 3) or b (charge = -1 3) quarks in a model with just left-handed currents. Particular attention is paid to decay modes, production by neutrinos or antineutrinos, the analogues of K0 - K0 mixing, and CP violation.
