Important Reminder to Toronto Meeting Attendees

Canada-Maple-Leaf-2For all US citizens who are travelling to Toronto for our fabulous meeting the first weekend in October, this is a reminder that despite certain similarities of speech, Canada is a foreign land and you will be required to possess a valid passport to board a plane or cross the border. If yours is not valid, better hurry to get one. “Routine” applications take 4 to 6 weeks; the pricier “Expedited” 3 weeks, and “Expedited at Agency” (based on need; restrictions apply) 8 business days.

Quantum Cheshire Cat

The physicist in me is just giggling over this article.  How cool that two of my very favorite subjects have collided, and non-destructively too I might add.  Basically they’ve separated a particle from one of its properties.  How very Carrollian.
