Hunting for Tunnels in Space-Time

By Nicholas Stehle November  17, 2015 You’ve probably seen it on television or in film, or read it in a fictional story: characters find a wormhole and use it to travel backwards or forwards through space or even time. Some scientists believe there might be an element of truth to that. According to physicist Eric Davis, “A traversable wormhole is a hyperspace tunnel, also called a throat, that connects together two remotely distant regions within our universe, or two different universes — if other universes exist — or two different periods in time, as in time travel, or different dimensions of space.” Davis...

Hillary Clinton: Uber Must Be Destroyed

by Nicholas Stehle July 16, 2015 If Republicans are “backward” and “opposed to progress,” why is it that Hillary Clinton, like much of the left generally, is attacking Uber? From National Review: The ride-sharing service is synonymous with the new efficiency and convenience enabled by information technology, and is anathema to regulators and entrenched interests everywhere. Add to the list of its critics the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Hillary Clinton didn’t mention Uber by name but warned about the disruption caused by it and other companies in the so-called sharing economy. Her husband wanted to build a bridge to the 21st century;...
