    The dream of the flying car could come down to earth before it gets off the ground. Rising in its place: a network of self-flying drones big enough to ferry individual commuters around town. That’s the future envisioned by several start-ups that are developing so-called “passenger drones,” which could shrink commute times from hours to minutes.

    Acupuncture is based on the concept of qi (pronounced “chi”), a life force or energy that practitioners say flows through the body along 20 distinct routes called meridians. Blocked meridians are believed to cause illness by disrupting the flow of qi. Inserting acupuncture needles at specific points along specific meridians is thought to clear those blockages and restore qi’s natural flow, which in turn restores patients to health.

By exploiting several features of physics at the universe’s smallest scales - that electrons are both particles and waves, that an object can be in many places at once and that two particles can maintain an eerie instantaneous connection even when separated by vast distances.

    Earth is a finite place. The more people who inhabit it, the more they must compete for its resources. Although human population has grown steadily, developments in recent decades have been encouraging. Globally, women today give birth to an average of 2.5 children, half as many as in the early 1950s. In 40 percent of the world’s nations, the fertility rate is at or below the “replacement” level of 2.1 children per woman, the number at which offspring simply take the place of their parents.

    In Baltimore, men in one of the most down-at-the-heels parts of the city live 20 years less, on average, than men in the most well-to-do neighborhoods. Numbers such as these are why poverty and lack of access to medical care are often blamed for poor health in the US. But it is not a simple money = health equation. By global standards, the poor of the US are fantastically rich, yet they die sooner than the poor of other lands.

    Con artists rarely inspire admiration. Frank Abagnale Jr., however, was hardly a typical con artist. Cunning and charismatic, Abagnale forged checks, diplomas, and transcripts en route to assuming at least eight identities and posing as a pilot, a lawyer, and a doctor—all before his nineteenth birthday. Although he eventually was caught and sentenced to 12 years in a federal prison for his cons, he served less than five years before the U.S. government recruited him to fight the very types of crimes that he had perpetrated.

    In South Asia - considered one of the highest-risk zones - groundwater steeped in arsenic runs across a densely populated swath of land covering parts of India, Nepal and Bangladesh. Although the World Health Organization says arsenic concentrations are dangerous above 10 micrograms per liter of water, India's legal maximum remains 50 micrograms per liter - and many wells test far above even India's lenient standard.
