Syrian Troops Advance in Aleppo Amid War's Heaviest Bombing
The FBI Investigation of EmailGate Was a Sham
The FBI completely ignored the appearance of highly classified signals intelligence in Hillary’s email, including information lifted verbatim from above-Top Secret NSA reports back in 2011.
Jason Chaffetz, chair of the House Oversight Committee, pronounced himself “absolutely stunned” by the FBI’s granting of immunity to Cheryl Mills – which he learned of only on Friday.
State Department IT boss John Bentel – by far the most consequential
Mills went full dog-ate-my-homework, claiming that a burglar had taken the files, leading Comey to unavoidably conclude that she was obstructing his investigation. Mills’ cover-up, the Senate investigators assessed, encompassed “destruction of documents” and “highly improper” behavior.
Such misconduct is a career-ender for normal people in Washington, but not for Cheryl Mills

“If the main fighting force inside of Syria is not signed up to take Assad out, where does that force come from?” Graham asked. Neither Dunford nor Carter had an answer to that.

“It is unclear if the Federal Bureau of Investigation was aware of these facts at the time of their investigation”
“Significant concerns that materials directly related to the Committee’s investigation and responsive to its outstanding requests are being actively destroyed in an attempt to conceal relevant information from coming to light.”
These new revelations, however, place a white-hot light on the FBI’s arrangement with Combetta.

A non-probabilistic quantum theory produces unpredictable results
"There are exciting prospects about understanding what other superinformation theories there are in addition to quantum theory; coming up with measures of entanglement or quantum coherence in this generalized scenario would have the advantage of being more general than current quantum-information-theoretic ones.
Breakthrough in understanding of how things deform
The observation is significant because these are the same sort of kink bands that are ubiquitous in geologic formations
"We now have evidence for a new defect in solids; in other words we have doubled the deformation micromechanisms known."
"This new finding will require us to reexamine past findings and reinterpret results that to date were incorrectly explained using dislocation theory."
Physicists create nano-sized device with huge potential in field of quantum computing
The first-ever nano-sized optical resonator (or optical cavity) from a single crystal of diamond that is also a mechanical resonator.
New regimes of quantum physics
"The ability to trap light in nanoscale volumes in an optical cavity creates high electromagnetic intensity from tiny amounts of light, and amplifies light-matter interactions that are typically nearly impossible to study,"
"I would say we're one of the best groups in the world, thanks to the work of the students, in creating optical probes to get light into and out of these devices."
