Evidence suggests that when asked to evaluate others' arguments, people often do a reasonably good job of separating cogent positions from nonsense. However, we do dramatically less well at evaluating our own arguments, and this asymmetry is at the heart of Hugo Mercier and Dan Sperber's The Enigma of Reason . By surveying many of the most compelling experimental findings from the past 40 years of reasoning research, Mercier and Sperber argue that cognitive biases are likely evolutionary consequences of what our reasoning was optimized to do.
Topological insulators (TIs), with their helically spin-momentum?locked topological surface states (TSSs), are considered promising for spintronics applications. Several recent experiments in TIs have demonstrated a current-induced electronic spin polarization that may be used for all-electrical spin generation and injection. We report spin potentiometric measurements in TIs that have revealed a long-lived persistent electron spin polarization even at zero current. Unaffected by a small bias current and persisting for several days at low temperature, the spin polarization can be induced and reversed by a large ?writing? current applied for an extended time. Although the exact mechanism responsible for the observed long-lived persistent spin polarization remains to be better understood, we speculate on possible roles played by nuclear spins hyperfine-coupled to TSS electrons and dynamically polarized by the spin-helical writing current. Such an electrically controlled persistent spin polarization with unprecedented long lifetime could enable a rechargeable spin battery and rewritable spin memory for potential applications in spintronics and quantum information.

First, beware of growing internet storm clouds approaching. These storms are caused by the heating up of state-sponsored hacking groups. Many nations are ?
According to traditional flight physics, bees should not be able to fly. But fly they do, with mastery of non? steady state aerodynamics and little concern about our limited understanding of their capabilities. Building on recent insights in biophysics research, Furry Logic: The Physics of Animal Life uses a refreshing combination of scientific precision and colloquial wit to show how animals use heat, forces, fluids, sound, electricity, and light to their advantage.

Building a quantum computer has gone from a far-off dream of a few university scientists to an immediate goal for some of the world's biggest companies. Tech giants Intel, Microsoft, IBM, and Google are all plowing tens of millions of dollars into quantum computing, which aims to harness quantum mechanics to vastly accelerate computation. Yet the contenders are betting on different technological horses: No one yet knows what type of quantum logic bit, or qubit, will power a practical quantum computer. Google, often considered the field's leader, has signaled its choice: tiny, superconducting circuits. Its group has built a nine-qubit machine and hopes to scale up to 49 within a year?an important threshold. At about 50 qubits, many say a quantum computer could achieve "quantum supremacy" and do something beyond the ken of a classical computer, such as simulating molecular structures in chemistry and materials science, or solving problems in cryptography. Small startup company ionQ, a decided underdog, is sticking with its preferred technology: trapped ions.

People tend to structure their beliefs in a way that appears consistent to them. But how do some beliefs within groups persist in the face of social pressure, whereas others change and, by changing, influence a cascade of other beliefs? Friedkin et al. developed a model that can describe complexes of attitudes in a group that interact and change (see the Perspective by Butts). Their model revealed how the changing views of the U.S. population on the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq changed their views on whether the invasion by the United States was justified.
