It’s a bad day both for Albert Einstein and for hackers. The most rigorous test of quantum theory ever carried out has confirmed that the ‘spooky action at a distance’ that the German physicist famously hated — in which manipulating one object instantaneously seems to affect another, far away one — is an inherent part of the quantum world.
Experiment plugs loopholes in previous demonstrations of 'action at a distance', against Einstein's objections — and could make data encryption safer.

Journals prefer to publish novel, cutting-edge research. And professional advancement is determined by making new discoveries, not painstakingly confirming claims that are already on the books.
The ability to repeat a study and find the same results twice is a prerequisite for building scientific knowledge. Replication allows us to ensure empirical findings are reliable and refines our understanding of when a finding occurs. It may surprise you to learn, then, that scientists do not often conduct – much less publish – attempted replications of existing studies.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced Friday that the Pentagon is funding a new venture to develop cutting-edge electronics and sensors that can flex and stretch and could be built into clothing or the skins of ships and aircraft.

How current technology and robotics is being used to save lives in disasters.
New technology helps save lives after catastrophes. In disasters like 9/11, Katrina and Fukushima robots and drones helped rescuers locate survivors and acess damage.

Not only does the article detail the current splintering of the Yakuza, but also has a good description of how they exist in society.
The biggest Yakuza group is celebrating its 100th year in operation, but it’s splitting into factions that may soon go after each other with bloody consequences.

Billed as a tool to help bring back the art of conversation for sufferers of severe paralysis and loss of speech, the prototype analyses changes in breathing patterns and converts 'breath signals' into words using pattern recognition software and an analogue-to-digital converter.
A new device which transforms paralysis victims' breath into words – believed to be the first invention of its kind – has been developed by academics from Loughborough University.

After the debacle of Eugene Goostman last year during Turing tests, researchers are looking for different methods to evaluate machine intelligence.
Forget the Turing and Lovelace tests on artificial intelligence: I want to see a robot pass the Frampton Test.

This new method extracts hydrogen from water and isolates the gas to prevent explosions.  Combine this technology with the recent article about being able to produce inexpensive hydrogen fuel cells and we could have a truly viable alternative to petroleum.
A new "artificial leaf" system that uses solar energy to split water and create hydrogen fuel is the safest and most efficient one ever designed.

The laser uses radar to autonomously track any potential unmanned arial vehicles (UAVs) at ranges of up to 40 kilometers (roughly 25 miles).

For any of you who have taken the early plunge into the realms of Windows 10, some tips if you are security conscious.
Amid the privacy concerns and arguably invasive nature of Microsoft's Windows 10 regarding user information, it's no surprise that details on how to minimize the leaks as much as possible have been requested. To this end, we've put together a quick guide to help out. If you are using Windows 10, or plan to upgrade soon, it's worth bearing

We need more open source science like this, instead of having groups keeping research secret in the hopes of making huge financial profits.
Willson likens the work to open source software production—specifically the ongoing work of maintaining the Linux kernel.
The human genome specifies more than 500 kinases, enzymes that can manipulate protein activity. More than 400 of them are understudied, even though more knowledge about them could unlock a wave of drug innovation. Scientists are trying to fix that—the open source way.
