Wormholes Untangle a Black Hole Paradox. A bold new idea aims to link two famously discordant descriptions of nature. In doing so, it may also reveal how space-time owes its existence to the spooky connections of quantum information. https://www.quantamagazine.org/20150424-wormholes-entanglement-firewalls-er-epr/

Face Off: Building a Toy Universe to Pit Quantum Theory Against Gravity. Using superconducting circuits to create a curved-spacetime analog with stronger gravity than our cosmos. http://fqxi.org/community/articles/display/201
FQXi catalyzes, supports, and disseminates research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality, but unlikely to be supported by conventional funding sources.

The Oldest Known Footage of London (1890-1920) Shows the City’s Great Landmarks http://www.openculture.com/2015/04/the-oldest-known-footage-of-london.html 
The City of London has exploded like Blade Runner in the last couple of decades with glass and concrete and shrines to global capitalism like St. Mary Axe (aka the Gherkin) and the Shard (aka the Shard). But has the view from the ground stayed the same?

Beverlywood low-water redo brings carrots, conversation and cash too. "Perhaps people will get used to this look," Jeffrey Glaser said. "And over time they will come to think of lawns as ridiculous. There's just no reason to have a lawn anymore." http://fw.to/cGi1z0G
For Jeffrey and Linda Glaser, getting rid of their Beverlywood front lawn was a no-brainer.

+Jodi Kaplan I suppose, if there was something that was flat and soft enough and felt good underfoot. We always go barefoot on our lawn. Now, keep in mind that where I live in California, we have all the water we want, cheap, and using less won't help anyone, really.  We are a weird anomaly. But if we lived just about anywhere else, I would definitely go low-water usage on our property.

New Technology Could Better Detect Dangerous Materials At US Ports. http://physicsbuzz.physicscentral.com/2015/04/new-technology-could-better-detect.html
It is the stuff of scientists' nightmares and science fiction writers' plot points: a nuclear weapon is slipped into the U.S. on a cargo ship and detonates, destroying an American seaport and killing a million people. Indeed, in the movie version of Tom Clancy's book, The Sum of All Fears, ...

Science writer, cocktail physics
Introduction
I'm a science writer, author of several popular science books for general readers. I also have my own blog at Scientific American, Cocktail Party Physics. Most recent books: "Me, Myself and Why: Searching for the Science of Self," coming out January 28, 2014, and "The Calculus Diaries: How Math Can Help You Lose Weight, Win in Vegas, and Survive a Zombie Apocalypse" (2010).
Bragging rights
Married to +Sean Carroll (affectionately known as the Time Lord). Black belt in jujitsu (although I no longer practice). Ran a program for two years matching scientists with writers, producers and directors in Hollywood, for the National Academy of Sciences. Dedicated to stamping out the notion of "two cultures": science is as much a part of creative human endeavor as the arts. I make a mean pad thai. Also orange/cranberry scones. Quite possibly first and only person to utter the phrase "negative index of refraction" on late-night TV (Craig Ferguson).
