    In this mini world, the concepts of "before" and "after" dissolve, such that two events can both precede and succeed each other. In other words, event A can occur before event B, and event B can occur before event A... This idea, called a "quantum switch," was first proposed in 2009 by another team and has since been explored both theoretically and experimentally. Previous experiments showed event A could both precede and succeed event B, but the research couldn't say that these two scenarios were happening at the same place, said Cyril Branciard, co-author of this new study and a...

    Media giant Meredith Corporation has agreed to sell Time Magazine for $190 million, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.

The proposed sale to the Benioffs is expected to close within 30 days and will be unrelated to Salesforce.com. They also told the newspaper that they won’t have any day-to-day influence over the magazine’s operations, nor will they have any journalistic input. “We’re investing in a company with tremendous impact on the world, one that is also an...
  • Are Teachers Really 'Not Paid for the Work [They] Do'? Time Says Yes, Reality Begs To Differ

    Time magazine has a big new story out that purports to show just how little public-school teachers make."'I Work 3 Jobs And Donate Blood Plasma to Pay the Bills.' This Is What It's Like to Be a Teacher in America" telegraphs its message in its headline. The opening anecdote tells the story of a struggling veteran teacher reduced to selling blood plasma to make ends meet. Hope Brown can make $60 donating plasma from her blood cells twice in one week, and a little more if she sells some of her clothes at a consignment store. It's usually just enough...

    After the liberal media went wild for a photoshopped Time magazine cover depicting President Trump looking down at a crying immigrant girl, it was exposed that the girl was not separated from her family after all. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday to defend his outlet’s deceptive and misleading cover. Meanwhile, host Brian Stelter was worried about right-wing media pouncing on the story. “As soon as it was revealed through an interview with the child's father that the family had not been separated there was a really strong right-wing backlash to your cover, including...
  • Using Their Own Tactics Against Them.

    Using their Alinsky tactics against them. I'm fed up. I am fed up with being called a NAZI. Dan Bongino https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQlw7Vbkva8&t=3087s gave a great show about this and why they are doing it. The Nazis did it to the Jews. Make them look like something less than human, so it's easier to do to them what was coming. The TIME magazine cover was the last straw. I have decided to resume the fight the only way I know how. I am a cartoonist, what can I do? "The political cartoonist is the biggest threat to a dictator, because he can...

    At the bottom of the TIME article of the young crying girl 'separated from her mother by border control agents', we find this: Correction: The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she taken from the scene. The girl was not carried away screaming by U.S. Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together.

    The family separation issue is tough, but don't expect liberals at TIME magazine to understand that. On Thursday, the magazine's cover attacked President Donald Trump as heartless."Welcome to America," the cover's title, is trending on Twitter.Orlando talk radio host Joe Kelly shared the cover, and explained it briefly. "Time Magazine's latest cover features a fabricated mashup of a child at the border crying with a seemingly uncaring President Trump staring down at her with the words 'Welcome to America,'" he explained.

    The History of Time after Pentecost THE SOLEMNITY OF PENTECOST and its Octave are over, and the progress of the Liturgical Year introduces us into a new period, which is altogether different from those we have hitherto spent. From the very beginning of Advent, which is the prelude to the Christmas festival, right up to the anniversary of the descent of the Holy Ghost, we have witnessed the entire series of the Mysteries of our Redemption; all have been unfolded to us. The sequel of Seasons and Feasts made up a sublime drama, which absorbed our very existence; we...

    Timeless recap: Bloodshed and betrayal in an explosive two-part season finale (SPOILER ALERT!) by Devan Coggan After an untimely cancellation and an unexpected resurrection in its freshman season, Timeless is taking no chances this time around. The time travel drama is closing out its stellar second season with a gutsy, guns-blazing finale that completely rewrites the rules — and showcases how much this show has grown. Not only has Timeless ironed out some of its kinks and tightened up its mythology, but it’s also finally leaning into its strengths — particularly its strong cast and time-period-of-the-week structure. -- SNIP --...

    President Donald Trump’s fiercest Democratic critic has launched a new attack on the president, this time telling him to just resign so that she no longer has to fight for his impeachment. Representative Maxine Waters, of California, has repeatedly called on Trump to be impeached, citing a variety of reasons, from his conduct in office to what she has alleged was his campaign’s collusion with Russia, even before Special Counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into Russian interference. Asked if she had any advice for Trump during a gala for the Time 100 in New York on Tuesday, Waters...

    Schools are removing analogue clocks from examination halls because teenagers are unable to tell the time, a head teachers’ union has said. Teachers are now installing digital devices after pupils sitting their GCSE and A-level exams complained that they were struggling to read the correct time on an analogue clock. Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), said youngsters have become accustomed to using digital devices. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” he told The Telegraph.

    What does it really mean to say that time ‘passes’? Why does time pass faster in the mountains than it does at sea level? The physicist explains in this extract from his latest book I stop and do nothing. Nothing happens. I am thinking about nothing. I listen to the passing of time. This is time, familiar and intimate. We are taken by it. The rush of seconds, hours, years that hurls us towards life then drags us towards nothingness ... We inhabit time as fish live in water. Our being is being in time. Its solemn music nurtures us,...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Paschal Time (Gueranger)

    The History of Paschal Time WE GIVE THE NAME OF PASCHAL TIME to the period between Easter Sunday and the Saturday following Whit Sunday. It is the most sacred portion of the Liturgical year, and the one towards which the whole Cycle converges. We shall easily understand how this is, if we reflect on the greatness of the Easter Feast, which is called the Feast of Feasts, and the Solemnity of solemnities, in the same manner, says St. Gregory, as the most sacred part of the Temple was called the Holy of holies: and the Book of Sacred Scripture,...

    The Long Now Foundation’s clock is a symbol for multi-generational thinking Jeff Bezos wants us all to be good ancestors. The Amazon supremo just tweeted that installation has begun on one of his pet projects of the last decade, the 10,000 Year Clock, also called the Clock of the Long Now. Designed to stay accurate for that huge time period, the giant clock will tick once a year, moving its century hand every 100 years, and send out a cuckoo once a millennia – just 10 times in its life. And it costs US$ 42 million. What is Bezos thinking?...

    All in God's time Question: God always was and always will be. We are talking about millions of years. How can I better understand this? — Eugene Herkins, Naples, Florida Answer: The wording of your question indicates you are thinking of time in a linear way. To be sure, it is difficult for us to grasp such a long period of time. However, God is more than very old, he is eternal. Eternity refers not merely to the length of time, but more accurately, to the fullness of time. For God, there is no tomorrow or yesterday; everything is...

    We already have a well-established way of representing time using years, months, week, days, hours, minutes, and seconds. Want to go smaller? We've got milliseconds, microseconds, and even nanoseconds. But none of these suited Facebook in terms of accuracy, so engineers at the social network came up with a brand new unit of time called Flicks. A flick, as described on the Flicks GitHub page, is "the smallest time unit which is LARGER than a nanosecond." One flick is 1/705,600,000 seconds, where as a nanosecond is 1/1,000,000,000 seconds. But why did Facebook need to invent Flicks? It's in order to...

    Just what is a second, exactly? The question has been open to interpretation ever since the first long-case grandfather clocks began marking off seconds in the mid-17th century and introduced the concept to the world at large. The answer, simply, is that a second is 1/60th of a minute, or 1/3600th of an hour. But that’s just pushing the question down the road a bit. After all, what’s an hour? That answer is related to the best means of time-keeping ancient civilizations had — the movement of the Earth through the heavens. The amount of time it takes for the...

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Today’s journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Mueller’s credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: “Several law enforcement officials said...

    Juanita Broaddrick will not stay quiet regarding Time magazine’s “silence breakers” piece on the #MeToo movement. Time featured a slew of famous faces for its annual “Person of the Year” issue — those who bring awareness to sexual assault collectively captured the distinction — but Ms. Broaddrick says her contributions were conspicuously left out. The woman who has maintained for decades that former President Bill Clinton raped her in Arkansas when she was 35 years old says her message for Time’s editors veered from the “liberal victim mold.”
