    Churchill is Prime Minister for the last time. Rationing is still in force. All music sounds like the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. People like living in 1952: it's familiar and reassuring, and Britain knows its place in the world. Few have noticed it's been 1952 for the past 65 years. Meet Professor Quanderhorn; a brilliant, maverick scientific genius who has absolutely no moral compass. With his Dangerous Giant Space Laser, High Rise Farm, Invisible Robot and Fleet of Monkey-driven Lorries, he's not afraid to push the boundaries of science to their very limit.

    A mind-bogglingly large hotel has provided inspiration for expanding the data-carrying capacity of light. A new technique that manipulates the twistiness of light is the optical equivalent of a mathematician’s thought experiment for creating more space in a hotel with an infinite number of rooms. In research published in the Oct. 16 Physical Review Letters, physicists tripled the degree of twistiness of a light beam.

    Although atom-thick sheets of carbon called graphene have many extraordinary properties, magnetism isn’t one of them. But a new study reveals that graphene can simply borrow the magnetic properties of a nearby material.

    Intricate quantum connections between microscopic particles almost certainly underlie some phenomena perceivable at human scales. Now, for the first time, physicists have measured these connections, known as quantum entanglement, between pairs of photons within a macroscopic beam of light. It’s a step toward understanding how the rules of quantum mechanics scale up to phenomena such as superconductivity that involve large numbers of particles.

    A new thriller starring Alabamian police Detective Cooper Devereaux, who confronts a murderer dubbed the Birthday Killer. A woman disappears on the way to her 20th birthday party. Three days later her body is found neatly laid out in the grounds of a Birmingham cemetery. The following week, a second woman disappears on her 21st birthday. Her body is discovered in a crematorium parking lot, and grisly forensic evidence leads Detective Devereaux to make a high-profile arrest.

    Alabama detective Cooper Devereaux makes no apologies for his luxe lifestyle or the way he does his job. Most cops haven't lived the kind of life he has - starting out as an orphan, raised by a grizzled cop savior - and most don't use his kind of high-risk tactics. But he may have met his match in fellow detective Jan Loflin, who's fresh off a long undercover stint in Vice when they're partnered on a case that will test them both beyond their direst nightmares.

    Who killed creativity? Was it X. S. Stress in the executive's office with 'crushing coercion'? Or was it Beau Rock-Racy in the accountant's office with 'noxious negativity'? Your help is needed to crack an unsolved crime: Creative thinking is declining at an alarming rate - how can we get it back? A recent survey of CEOs revealed that creativity is considered the most important quality in leadership. Who Killed Creativity? investigates how companies, leaders, managers, and individuals can build (or rebuild) a culture of innovation by fostering creative thinking and problem-solving - finding better solutions faster.

    Marc Bowman, a highly successful computer consultant and software designer, walks into his job at a major tech company one morning only to find himself fired on the spot, stonewalled by his boss, and ushered out of the building. Then things get worse: An explosive argument drives his wife away and a robbery threatens to yank a million-dollar idea - and his whole future - out from under him. In a matter of hours, Marc has gone from having it all to being sucker-punched by fate.

    Two analyses of proton collisions in the retooled LHC, which restarted at record energy in June after a two-year hiatus, have failed to yield any discoveries. The results do contain at least one intriguing hint of a new particle, researchers announced December 15 at a meeting at CERN in Geneva, but scientists will need more collisions to evaluate that possibility.

    A new experiment checks all the boxes in validating the weirdness of quantum physics. The first demonstration of a loophole-free Bell test, reported October 21 in Nature, confirms that particles coaxed into a state called entanglement share a relationship that cannot be explained by the physical laws that govern everyday life.

    An arsonist is targeting schools in Birmingham, Alabama - with devastating effect. Detective Devereaux - a man you can't quite trust and should never ignore - must put a stop to the elusive pyromaniac's reign of terror before more damage is done. Or worse, before students' lives are lost. But as Devereaux sifts through the ashes of the case, a grisly discovery at a burned-out school sends the investigation spiraling in a new, terrifying direction.
