Einstein’s archive now available online

(PhysOrg.com) -- If you ever wanted to glimpse into Albert Einstein's thoughts, now you can. Last week, the complete catalog of about 80,000 documents written by or addressed to Einstein—letters, postcards, notebooks, and other papers—was made available online by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Einstein Papers Project (EPP) at Caltech.

How To Plan Your Company’s End Game

Encyclopaedia Britannica , the 244-year-old company, recently announced it would stop printing encyclopedias. Of course this triggered a flurry of talk about the end of printed books, magazines, and newspapers and a once-great company humbled by shifts in technology

Physicist suggests Einstein could have beaten Bohr in famous thought experiment

(PhysOrg.com) -- Way back in the 1930’s, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr were sparring over ideas related to whether the new field of quantum mechanics was correct. In one thought experiment that Einstein said showed that quantum mechanics was inconsistent, he said the Heisenberg principal could be shown to be inconsistent by imagining a box of photons that could be measured both time-wise and energy-wise at the same time

The Joys of Quantum Entanglement

Quantum entanglement is such a mainstay of modern physics that it is worth reflecting on how long it took to emerge. What began as a perceptive but vague insight by Albert Einstein languished for decades before becoming a branch of experimental physics and, increasingly, modern technology. Einstein s two most memorable phrases perfectly capture the weirdness of quantum mechanics

You’re Not Making Enough Mistakes

Many of today's best companies arose out of lucky mistakes. That's why fear of being wrong is the biggest mistake of all. If you have ever flown in an airplane, used electricity from a nuclear power plant, or taken an antibiotic, you have benefited from someone's brilliant mistake.

Researchers roll Einstein’s dice: Developing a quantum random number generator

(PhysOrg.com) -- Quantum mechanics implies that uncertainty in experimental measurements are an inherent part of nature – an idea that Albert Einstein disparagingly characterized as “rolling dice”. This true quantum randomness, for which Einstein was concerned, contrasts with a conventional gaming die, whose motion follows the laws of classical mechanics and is therefore pseudo-random

The Unleashed Mind: Why Creative People Are Eccentric (preview)

He is one of the world’s best known and most successful entrepreneurs, with hundreds of patents to his name--including the Segway scooter. But you will never see Dean Kamen in a suit and tie: the eccentric inventor dresses almost exclusively in denim. He spent five years in college before dropping out, does not take vacations and has never married

You can increase your intelligence: 5 ways to maximize your cognitive potential

"One should not pursue goals that are easily achieved. One must develop an instinct for what one can just barely achieve through one's greatest efforts." --Albert Einstein While Einstein was not a neuroscientist, he sure knew what he was talking about in regards to the human capacity to achieve. He knew intuitively what we can now show with data--what it takes to function at your cognitive best.
