In this talk, how gamma ray bursts (GRBs), fast radio bursts (FRBs) and supernovae are related to dark matter and higgs physics is going to be discussed. The massive compact halo objects (MACHOs), such as primordial black holes or dense mini-halos, can gravitational lens the signal of GRBs and FRBs. For core-collapse supernovae, the explosions is directly controlled by the Higgs vev, and seem anthropically needed.
