Did Johanna Budwig really cure cancer naturally?

Cancer. The very word causes a recoil, a visceral awareness that our statistical probability of "catching" this "disease" is astronomically high.

Making Quantum Dots Glow Brighter

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 16, 2014 - Researchers from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the University of Oklahoma have found a new way to control the properties of quantum dots, those tiny chunks of semiconductor material that glow different colors depending on their size. Quantum dots, which are so small they start to exhibit atom-like quantum properties, have a wide range of potential applications, from sensors, light-emitting diodes, and solar cells, to fluorescent tags for biomedical imaging and qubits in quantum computing.

Shayne Looper: There are no ordinary people

It is common now - among intellectuals and even among government agencies - to deny humans a nature and regard the characteristics once attributed to human nature as merely 'social constructs.' Gender, for example, is now viewed by many as an arbitrary social construct.

Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy

The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum has been what's called the "Copenhagen interpretation"-which holds that, in some sense, a single particle really is a wave, smeared out across the universe, that collapses into a determinate location only when observed.
