In mid-April, I found myself sitting in the nearly empty barroom of the Tackle Box Bar & Grill in south Chico, half awake and filling my rumbling stomach with hot scrambled eggs and hash browns, my eyelids pried open by an endless supply of... Six o’clock and a cold beer weren’t far off my radar as I listened to the sweet sounds of a classical guitarist strumming through what he introduced as “French parlor music from the 17th century. I could be found at the Tackle Box most mornings that month and also the first few days of May, making the drive down from my farm in Los Molinos in support of a strange quest to hold the world’s longest multi-artist concert as certified by... During that time, hundreds of local, regional and national touring acts stepped onto the Tackle Box stage to perform almost every conceivable style of music, and event volunteers, organizers, musicians and the bar’s staff dealt with absentee acts,... On its surface, the event was about breaking a record few people ever imagined existed, but for me and many others involved, it became something more. It’s been more than a month since the clock stopped, and I’m still struggling to make sense of it all.
It was just after dawn on May 27 when Andrew Jennings’s phone began ringing. The waking world, that is. If Jennings had bothered to climb out of bed, he wouldn’t have been surprised at the news. The Secret World of FIFA: Bribes, Vote Rigging and Ticket Scandals,” followed by an exposé aired on the BBC’s “Panorama” program that same year, and then another book in 2014, called “Omerta: Sepp Blatter’s FIFA Organised Crime Family. “My phone started ringing at six in the morning,” Jennings said Tuesday from his farm in the hilly north of England. “I turned it off actually to get some more sleep, because whatever is happening at six in the morning is still going to be there at lunch time, isn’t it. ”. If you can’t tell already, Jennings is an advocate of slow, methodical journalism. For half a century, the 71-year-old investigative reporter has been digging into complex, time-consuming stories about organized crime. For the past 15 years, Jennings has focused on the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), international soccer’s governing body. As other journalists were ball watching — reporting scorelines or writing player profiles — Jennings was digging into the dirty deals underpinning the world’s most popular game.
Associate Professor Andrew Truscott and his PhD student, Roman Khakimov, of ANU's Research School of Physics and Engineering conducted a version of John Archibald Wheeler's delayed-choice thought experiment – a variation of the classic double-slit... In this instance, however, the ANU team replicated Wheeler's experiment using multiple atoms, which was much more difficult to do than a test using photons. "An atom is a much more classical particle," Associate Professor Truscott said. To carry out the experiment, the ANU team initially trapped a collection of helium atoms in a Bose-Einstein condensate (a medium in which a dilute gas is cooled to temperatures very close to absolute zero), and then forcibly ejected them from... This remaining atom was then released to pass through a pair of counter-propagating laser beams (that is, beams moving in opposite directions), which created a pattern to act as a crossroads for the atom in the same way that a solid diffusion...
