Not quite the Starship Enterprise warp core, but matter-antimatter annihilation could at least make a gamma-ray laser. A new proposal improves upon a previous idea by dispensing with the need for gamma-ray mirrors.

For the decay of positronium into two photons 0.511 MeV photons are required; but it's possible for positronium to decay into three photons, therefore of less energy each.

I would say it's incomplete. Perhaps "Say What? Higgs Boson Theorist Claims Universe Shouldn't Exist, According to Existing Theoretical Models." Unfortunately, titles are often linkbait, as you call them. The article is not bad though. I'm glad I was alerted to it. Hopefully, nobody will stop at the title, but instead will read into the actual story.

In a paper published today in Physical Review Letters, the BICEP2 team reports on what they say might be evidence of cosmic inflation. APS has made this paper open-access and free to read for all.

Acoustic sieve uses sound waves to sort underwater particles such as glass beads based on size. Could be good for 3D printing.

A new theory explains how some crystals block the flow of heat.
Contrary to textbook physics, a perfect crystal puts the brakes on heat

Dark matter dominates the Universe and has a foamy structure, with gigantic voids taking up most of the space. According to new computer simulations, a simple formula describes the average profile of these voids, regardless of their size or age, and could be compared with observations to test fundamental physics ideas.

A new device called a magnetic "hose" is able to effectively funnel a magnetic field from a dipole and reproduce it some distance away. The device, which consists of concentric cylinders of ferromagnetic material and superconductor, could be used for magnetic storage or imaging.

Nuclear experiments using photons as probes find that the outer, neutron-dominated layer of a nucleus is soft and wispy, rather than hard and well defined.

New research published in the open access journal Physical Review X shows how partners can use quantum entanglement to improve their odds of winning in the card game bridge.

"Quantum Bidding in Bridge"
Phys. Rev. X 4, 021047 (2014)
http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevX.4.021047
(Phys.org) —A team of physicists in Europe, led by Marcin Pawlowski, has proposed a way to use entangled quantum particles to improve the odds of winning in the game of bridge. As the team notes in their paper published in Physical Review X, their proposition appears to be the first example of using ...

Working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics
Introduction
The American Physical Society (APS) is a non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy and international activities. APS represents more than 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories and industry in the United States and throughout the world. Society offices are located in College Park, Maryland (Headquarters), Ridge, New York, and Washington, DC.
