Behind the Screen, By Kathryn Whitney Boole| “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is more than just a carefree romp with your favorite stars wearing action hero suits. Try not to see this when you’re dead tired or after you’ve been at happy hour with your friends, because there’s a lot going on that you could miss if your senses aren’t sharp. The comedic timing of the actors is brilliant and the narrative is rapid-fire and I don’t want to ruin your experience by describing it in detail. Just be ready for a lot of double takes and hilarious confused identity scenes. It may have you questioning how much you prejudge people and animals by their looks and sounds. The story of Ant-Man is built around the concepts of Quantum Physics, which (in an extremely simplified definition) state that everything in the universe has both particle nature and wave nature at the same time, and that there is possibility of existing in more than one plane at the same time. The … [Read more...] about The Quantum Physics of Laughter

The Unfinished Quest for the Meaning of Quantum Physics Are atoms real? Of course they are. Everybody believes in atoms, even people who don’t believe in evolution or climate change. If we didn’t have atoms, how could we have atomic bombs? But you can’t see an atom directly. And even though atoms were first conceived and named by ancient Greeks, it was not until the last century that they achieved the status of actual physical entities — real as apples, real as the moon. The first proof of atoms came from 26-year-old Albert Einstein in 1905, the same year he proposed his theory of special relativity. Before that, the atom served as an increasingly useful hypothetical construct. At the same time, Einstein defined a new entity: a particle of … [Read more...] about What Does Quantum Physics Actually Tell Us About the World?
Tech & Science Quantum Physics Information Security Our world is all about information, so perhaps it's no surprise that quantum physicists think about how they can manipulate their field to send information faster. And in a pair of recent papers, a team of quantum scientists have outlined a way to do just that—and in a way that no wannabe spy could ever listen in on. The gist of the technique feels a bit like the famous riddle in which two guards—one of whom always tells the truth and one of whom always lies—protect two doors, one of which hides a tiger. The trick is to always ask what the other guard would say: that way, it doesn't matter whether you've asked the truthful guard or the lying one, you have precisely one lie and one truth in the answer, so you can work backwards to avoid the tiger. The physicists' technique could mean information can travel twice as fast—with complete security.

Claudia Oshry and her sisters who became extremely popular for their Instagram meme accounts, including Girl With No Job, issued a statement Wednesday about their connection with Pamela Geller — the conservative blogger and anti-Islamist activist. The Oshry sisters had been distancing themselves from their controversial mother until now because of her political beliefs. “We want to be clear to our audience and fans that our political and cultural beliefs are not anti-Muslim or anti-anyone. Our views are separate from our mother’s. Being raised by a single parent, we were taught to make our own choices based on our personal beliefs. We are inspired to think for ourselves and we do. We do not condone discrimination or racist beliefs of any kind,” Claudia told Page Six in an exclusive statement Wednesday. Claudia runs the Instagram's Girl With No Job, which has received 2.8million followers, Jackie runs the Instagram Jackie O … [Read more...] about Pamela Geller Facts: Instagram’s ‘Girl With No Jobs’ Talks About Mother’s Islamophobia
