If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

A tour-de-force of lyricism, science history, a capella singing and green-screen technology, this Eminem parody pulls no punches. As hard-hitting as it is goofy, it boldly explores the question: What are we physicists to do when our discoveries start being used to cause destruction?

Video Creator Bio

Tim Blais is the creator of A Capella Science: an ongoing online video project that brings together his lifelong loves of groundbreaking science and glorious harmony. A singer and multi-instrumentalist with a master's degree in high-energy theoretical physics, this is literally the first thing Tim as ever felt completely at home doing. He lives in Montreal, Canada with his four roommates, his Einstein puppet and a slew of musical gadgetry.
