New math and quantum mechanics: Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy
The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum has been what's called the "Copenhagen interpretation" -- which holds that, in some sense, a single particle really is a wave, smeared out across the universe, that collapses into a determinate location only when observed. But some founders of quantum physics -- notably Louis de Broglie -- championed an alternative interpretation, known as "pilot-wave theory," which posits that quantum particles are borne along on some type of wave. According to pilot-wave theory, the particles have definite trajectories, but because of the pilot wave's influence, they still exhibit wavelike statistics. Now a professor of applied mathematics believes that pilot-wave theory deserves a second look.

After a number of down weekends, things picked up at the box office with two new movies, but what should have been a sure-thing sequel was overshadowed by the home invasion thriller, No Good Deed (Sony/Screen Gems), starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, which took the top spot with an estimated $24.5 million in just 2,175 theaters, averaging over $11,000 per site. The trend of family sequels not doing as well as their original installments continued as Dolphin Tale 2 (Warner Bros.), starring Harry Connick Jr., Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd, opened weaker than its predecessor with just $16.6 million in 3,656 theaters.

Gioacchino Rossini

Rossini was an Italian composer who wrote more than 30 operas as well as sacred music and piano pieces. The son of musicians, he began composing at age 12 and entered Bologna's conservatory just two years later. Into the genteel atmosphere of lingering 18th-century operatic manners, Rossini brought genuine originality marked by rude wit and humor and a willingness to sacrifice all "rules" of musical and operatic decorum. For what two masterpiece operas is he best known? Discuss

Griffith was an American film director best known for his controversial film The Birth of a Nation.

In over 400 films for Biograph, he developed filmmaking as an art form with techniques such as the close-up and the scenic long shot, and he collaborated with cinematographer Billy Bitzer to create fade-out, fade-in, and soft-focus shots. In 1919, Griffith co-founded what film company?

Flatiron Building

The Fuller Building in New York City was designed in the Beaux-Arts style by Chicago architect Daniel Burnham. Located on wedge-shaped lot, the triangular building resembled the flatirons of its day—hence the nickname—and stood in drastic contrast to the city's other structures. The Flatiron Building was met with skepticism upon its completion in 1902 but has since become a New York icon, and its "point" offices are known for their striking views. What is quirky about the building's bathrooms?
