Where Will Everett Golson Transfer? Here Are 8 Possible Landing Spots For The Former Notre Dame QB

first_imggolsonkelly1Twitter/@NDonNBCWhile Ohio State has received a ton of attention about how it will handle its quarterback situation, there had been rumors all off-season that Notre Dame’s Everett Golson would consider transferring, with Malik Zaire threatening to win the starting job for 2015. Back in January, reports came out that 24 schools were interested in Golson, and today, the move became official. Golson is now the biggest-named free agent on the transfer market. We’re aware that there may be some issues with Golson going to the SEC due to a conference rule that graduate transfers must have stayed academically eligible while undergraduate players. We’ll work under the assumption that any school that is interested would be able to find a way to get him on campus, considering that he was connected to multiple SEC schools when the transfer rumors first emerged.Where will the former Fighting Irish star, who led the team to a national championship berth in 2012-13, wind up? Here are eight big-time programs that could definitely use a player like Golson this season.Get Started: Florida >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9last_img read more

first_imgPokemon Go at Oklahoma State's stadium.Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy likes to try and keep up with the latest trends. Last time it was hoverboarding; today, it was Pokemon GO.The craze, which is based on the old card game Pokemon, has taken the country by storm. Pokemon GO is played on a downloadable cellphone app, and CNN has a breakdown of what it is all about. Anyway, the app, which is free to download and play, uses GPS to make a cartoony map of your neighborhood and basically anywhere you go. In this colorful, slightly Big-Brother-y version of reality, Pokémon are interspersed throughout, and when you come within range of a Pokémon you can “approach” them and they will show up on your phone.Today, Gundy posted a picture of him catching a Pokemon named Pidgey inside T.

TIFF PROGRAM HELPS RISING STARS LEARN HOW TO SHINE

(RICH POLK / GETTY IMAGES FOR IMDB) Twitter When Vinnie Bennett first walked into a gifting lounge at the Toronto International Film Festival, he was handed complimentary bags of M&Ms. Sure, he could have bought the candy for a few bucks at a local drugstore. But frankly, he was just happy to be given anything for free.After all, as one of the seven actors selected to participate in TIFF’s Rising Stars program, he’d already been gifted an IWC watch worth roughly $3,000 (U.S.). M&Ms were just a bonus at this point.But then he spotted a tattoo artist setting up an inking station. “You want a tattoo?” asked Mr. Koo, who has his own local shop.

Real estate boards look to TREBs experience regarding sales data release

first_imgTORONTO – Real estate boards across Canada are mulling the release of home sales data online after the Toronto Real Estate Board began permitting such numbers to be published on password-protected websites on Tuesday.Calgary, Greater Moncton and B.C.’s Fraser Valley were among a handful of real estate boards that said they were looking towards the Greater Toronto Area to decide how their own region should tackle the contentious issue that involved seven years of fighting at three judicial bodies for TREB, which wanted to keep the data under wraps because of privacy and copyright concerns.The battle, which began after the Competition Bureau alleged in 2011 that preventing the publication of the data was anti-competitive, ended in August when the Supreme Court of Canada refused to hear the case. TREB took a few weeks to work out details around how realtors could publish the numbers before giving them the go-ahead Tuesday.Alan Tennant, the chief executive officer of the Calgary Real Estate Board, said he watched the case intently, knowing it would likely have ramifications on how his board handled the issue.CREB, he said, is already doing an analysis of how releasing sales data would impact its policies, but has no intention of fighting the release of the data on password-protected websites like TREB did.He said it is important the board not rush into releasing the data, but he anticipates its publication in Calgary will be “relatively quick.”“I don’t see this needing to drag on. I see it as being really straightforward,” he said. “(Real estate boards) are all probably at the same point in wanting to do this right and simply get on with things.”Like Tennant, Greater Moncton Real Estate Board executive officer George Murray said he paid attention to the TREB case and as a result of it and some inquiries from local realtors in recent weeks, his board has put a discussion on the matter on its Wednesday meeting agenda.“We recognize the importance of the issue and want to move on it as quickly as possible,” he said, adding that the board is already consulting with lawyers about the implications of making such data available online.If the board decides to move forward with allowing realtors to publish the data online, Murray said it won’t just copy all of TREB’s specifications, which already bar realtors from scraping, mining, selling, reselling, licensing, reorganizing and monetizing the numbers.“We have to have our own recommendations from legal counsel and act in our own way to make sure we are doing the best we can to not only be compliant but look after the best interests of the public.”John Barbisan, the president of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board in B.C., said he has watched TREB encounter “growing pains” as it figured out how it would allow data to be released.The board tussled with how to handle historical sold price information where consents were given before websites were in existence and how long listing photos should remain active on a broker’s website after the sale of a property has been completed.It also had to deal with realtors who rushed to publish the data online immediately following the Supreme Court’s dismissal of the case. TREB ended up sending them cease-and-desist letters, warning it would take away data access and TREB memberships or bring legal action against members it believed were violating its user agreement by posting sales numbers online “in an open and unrestricted fashion.”Barbisan doesn’t think the issues TREB faced will be different than what his region might encounter, but said his board intends to “take the high road” and look at how it can release the data.“I am sure it is going to be coming our way and we are making efforts to prepare for it.”Follow @Tara_Deschamps on Twitter.last_img read more

5 things to watch for Ohio State v San Diego State

2. Can Jordan Hall repeat his performance from last week? How does redshirt-junior Rod Smith figure into the equation?Last week Hall got the start at running back for the Buckeyes, and instead of just filling in while OSU waited for the return of suspended running backs redshirt-junior Rod Smith and senior Carlos Hyde, he put up a career-high 159 yards and two touchdowns. Now, with the return of Smith, the pressure will be on Hall to repeat his performance from last week, or risk losing his spot. SDSU allowed 172 yards rushing last week against Eastern Illinois, so the opportunity could be there for Hall to impress again. 3. Will OSU’s front seven be able to contain SDSU running back Adam Muema?SDSU’s junior running back Adam Muema left the Aztecs’ 40-19 loss midway through the first half because of an ankle injury but is expected to be full-go against OSU Saturday. Muema will still be a focus of the Buckeye defense Saturday, as he finished with 1,458 yards last season to go along with 16 touchdowns. Against Buffalo, the Buckeyes only allowed 73 rushing yards, but the Bulls did not have a back of the quality of Muema. Junior linebacker Ryan Shazier and company will have to slow Muema if the Buckeyes hope to continue their 13-game unbeaten streak. Shelby Lum / Photo editorOhio State football players warm up before a game against Buffalo Aug. 31, at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 40-20.1. The Return of Bradley RobyEven though OSU coach Urban Meyer would not say whether Roby will start against San Diego State, it is hard to believe the redshirt junior cornerback wouldn’t see significant playing time. The presence of the preseason All-American and Jim Thorpe Award semifinalist is much-needed for a secondary that will also see the return of another starter in redshirt-senior safety C.J. Barnett. Roby’s ability to take the opponent’s best receiver out of the game is something the Buckeyes will need once Big Ten play starts in three weeks. It will be interesting to see how much Meyer plays him. 4. Did the Buckeyes learn their lesson after suffering cramps last week?Several key members for OSU, including starting junior quarterback Braxton Miller, left last week’s win over Buffalo at different points in the game due to cramping. With temperatures likely to be in the mid-80s again Saturday, hydration both before and during the game will be important. Meyer called the cramping “a concern” following the win, so seeing if the issue was addressed will be a storyline to watch. 5. Will the Buckeyes get complacent?After SDSU, the Buckeyes are scheduled to face California, a member of a BCS conference in the Pac-12. Although the Mountain West Conference has earned some respect over the past few years, it still does not consistently compare to the Big Ten, Pac-12 or other members of the BCS. With that in mind, the Buckeyes need to focus on the task at hand and not look ahead to next week’s clash with the Golden Bears. If OSU does not keep focused, the Aztecs could come out of the gate quickly and grab an early lead. The game could become more complicated for the Buckeyes if they have to play from behind, so they need to keep their minds on the game at hand. read more

NFL draft Noah Brown selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the seventh

OSU sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown (80) makes a leaping grab during the second half of the Buckeyes game against Northwestern on Oct. 29. The Buckeyes won 24-20. Credit: Alexa MavrogianisThe Dallas Cowboys selected former Ohio State wide receiver Noah Brown in the seventh round with the 239th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.Brown is the seventh former OSU player selected in this year’s draft. He is the third former Buckeye on the offensive side of the ball to be selected. The big-bodied 6-foot-2, 222-pound wideout was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection his final season for the Buckeyes.In 2016, his redshirt sophomore season and final year as a Buckeye, Brown caught 30 passes, the second-most on the team, for 402 yards, a 12.6-yard average. He caught seven touchdowns.Brown excited OSU fans and impressed NFL teams when he caught five passes for 72 yards, scoring four times against Oklahoma in the third game of the 2016 season. But Brown caught just two touchdowns in the remaining 10 games.Before the 2016 season, Brown played in 13 games, all during his freshman season, but caught just a single pass. In fall camp, prior to his second season in Columbus, Brown suffering a broken left leg that would keep him out the entire season, allowing OSU to use a redshirt.Brown’s 19 reps on the bench press at the NFL combine tied him for the second-most among wide receivers in this draft class.This marks the third year in a row a Buckeyes receiver was drafted. In 2015, Devin Smith and Evan Spencer were taken by the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, respectively. Michael Thomas and Braxton Miller were drafted by the New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans, respectively, in 2016.Brown joins former Buckeyes running backs Ezekiel Elliot and Rod Smith in Dallas.Brown will begin his NFL career in Dallas on September 10 when the Cowboys take on the New York Giants. read more

Football Ryan Day secures head coaching job until Sept 16

Ohio State said offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day was named the acting head coach for the duration of the investigation. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignOne question was on everyone’s mind heading into Ohio State’s Sept. 1 season opener: Who will be the head coach running out of the tunnel alongside the Buckeyes against Oregon State?After a Board of Trustees meeting scheduled to share the findings of the investigation of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer neared its 12th hour of deliberation, the answer arrived at Ryan Day — until Sept. 16. In the statement released announcing Meyer’s absence from the team on Aug. 1, Ohio State said offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day was named the acting head coach for the duration of the investigation.As a former offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at both the college and the pro level, this is Day’s first opportunity as the head coach of any football program. However, he becomes the acting head coach of a coaching staff with two former head coaches as coordinators, associate head coach and defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson.  Both coordinators bring more experience to the coaching staff than Day has, as they each ran Division I programs for several seasons. However, both coordinators have faced controversy in recent years. In November 2017, Schiano initially was set to become the next head coach at the University of Tennessee after helping the Ohio State defense allow an average of 19 points per game. However, with a history of being a graduate assistant and a secondary coach at Penn State from 1990 to 1995, allegations resurfaced about Schiano and fellow assistant coach Jerry Sandusky regarding the latter’s sexual abuse. The Volunteers rescinded their offer, breaking a memorandum of understanding signed by both the university and Schiano. After recording a 26-47 record in six seasons, Wilson was fired as the head coach at Indiana with reports of alleged mistreatment, especially involving injured players. With the stories attached to both Schiano and Wilson, despite the head coaching experience, Day seemed the safer option for a university that was wrapped up in national scrutiny. However, Day’s level of responsibility, even without the change in title, was already increased heading into the 2018 season. After his promotion to the offensive coordinator position in January, Day will lead an offense in the midst of an identity shift: a changing of the guard at quarterback, with redshirt sophomore Dwayne Haskins taking over for quarterback J.T. Barrett and leading an offense with an established running game and veteran receiving corps. Instead of just the offense, Day has been in charge of Ohio State since the start of fall camp at the beginning of August. Despite the loss of Meyer heading into the season opener against Oregon State, the roster remains the same, with players like Associated Press preseason All-American junior defensive end Nick Bosa and sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins. For the short term, the team is the same, with the same expectations for the upcoming season: a Big Ten Championship with a significant chance at a College Football Playoff berth. Now, knowing what Meyer’s status is going into the regular season, Day and the rest of the Ohio State football program will now focus on the short term. read more

Review Arsenal – Atletico Madrid

first_imgA 77-minute man advantage wasn’t enough for Arsenal to see off Atletico Madrid. Antoine Griezmann punished a moment of reckless defense and Simeone’s men will go home with a priceless away goal.Arsene Wenger couldn’t count on his two winter additions. Mkhitaryan is injured and Aubameyang was ineligible due to having played for Borussia Dortmund. Ospina, Arsenal’s Europa League goalie, was between the posts. Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, Welbeck and Lacazette completed The Gunners’ starting lineup. Diego Simeone left out the out-of-form Fernando Torres and gave a rare opportunity to Kevin Gameiro to play alongside Antoine Griezmann. Veteran midfielder Gabi and center back Stefan Savic were on the bench as well. Angel Correa was in the starting eleven, as Simeone opted for speed in attack. Saul Niguez, Koke and Thomas Partey was the midfield trio, Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin, Jose Maria Gimenez and Sime Vrsaljko were the defenders and Jan Oblak was on goal.It was Arsene Wenger’s last European game with his beloved team and the atmosphere at the stadium he helped build was wonderfully unified. It took one minute and 15 seconds for Sime Vrsaljko to receive the first yellow card of the match, as he tripped Welbeck in order to stop a counter attack. Lacazette had a great chance in the 6th minute when Welbeck found him with a magnificent pass. The Frenchman took it first time and missed by a few centimeters. He probably should’ve done better. Seconds later, Oblak made an excellent reflex save on Lacazette’s close-range header.The referee made a gigantic decision to show Vrsaljko a second yellow for a foul on Lacazette in the 13th minute. It was extremely brave from Clement Turpin to do that and even though Simeone was in disbelief over what had happened, replays showed that the Croatian right back did step on Lacazette’s foot. The red card was justified. The volatile Argentinian coach then screamed at the referee for a foul by Bellerin, asking for a yellow card. Instead, he was sent to the stands for his angry gestures and protests. I have to give credit to the young referee. Every decision he made was the right one. He could’ve calmly shown a red card to Atletico’s assistant manager as well.Oblak denied Arsenal again in the 20th minute. He saved Welbeck’s attempt at going between his legs. On the ensuing corner kick, the ball came to Koscielny, who failed to direct it towards goal at the far post. Moments later, Lacazette was calling for a foul inside Atletico’s box, but was fortunate not to receive a booking for diving. Bellerin was getting tons of space on the right flank and was sending crosses at will. In the 37th minute, we almost saw a nightmare scenario develop for Arsenal. Thomas Partey dribbled past three players, the ball bounced off a fourth one onto his foot and he passed the ball to Griezmann, who fired a shot right at Ospina.Alexandre Lacazette, ArsenalArsenal suffer huge blow as Lacazette is ruled out until October Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Arsenal announced that striker Alexandre Lacazette has suffered an ankle injury and will be sidelined until October.Whenever in possession, The Gunners were sending a lot of players forward. However, considering the man advantage, they weren’t doing enough to exploit it. We went into half-time with no goals in either net.Atletico’s defense dropped deeper in the second half, as most of its players were in the 25 to 30-meter area in front of Oblak’s goal. Patience eventually paid off for Arsenal. Wilshere made a cross inside the box in the 61st minute. A great leap at the back post by Alexandre Lacazette and his header gave the home team a 1-0 lead. It was the breakthrough Wenger’s men were so desperate for. The first substitution of the match came in the 65th minute, when Gameiro was replaced by Gabi. Lacazette was really pumped up after the goal. He was everywhere. In the 70th minute he almost flicked the ball in the net with his head again.The Spanish side further strengthened its defense with the next switch, which was Savic in, Correa out. The thought process was ‘Live to fight another day’. Then, in the blank of an eye, Griezmann had the visitors level. An innocent ball forward, two defenders unable to contain one player and Arsenal was punished. A disastrous moment for Gunners fans worldwide and a moment of elation for the opposition fans. Soon after the goal, Griezmann was replaced by Fernando Torres. Oblak made another world-class save in the 86th minute, this time stopping Ramsey’s header.The game pretty much summarized most of the Arsene Wenger’s era at Arsenal, an era of missed opportunities and leaky defense. Despite total domination, Arsenal wasn’t the team going to the second leg with the advantage.last_img read more

Carlos Ghosn/Screenshot by Jake Holmes/Roadshow Ghosn’s message emphasized that he has a positive history with Nissan, and instead described the charges against him as a “conspiracy.””I love Japan and I love Nissan … I committed, since the beginning of my career, to the success of the Nissan revival plan,” he said. “This is about a plot, this is about conspiracy, this is about backstabbing.”A Nissan spokesman in the US said the company had no comment on the news.Ghosn alleged that this conspiracy was caused by fear of a greater alliance and potential merger between Renault and Nissan, which, he said, “would in a certain way threaten some people or eventually threaten the autonomy of Nissan.” He countered, however, that he has “been the fiercest defender of the autonomy of Nissan.”According to Automotive News, the video was released at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan in Tokyo. It was reportedly recorded on April 3 — a day before Ghosn was arrested again, this time for “suspicion of financial misconduct” while he was running Nissan. Ghosn had tweeted on April 2 that he was “getting ready to tell the truth about what’s happening” and that he planned a press conference for April 11.Ghosn’s video begins with the suggestion that the clip was filmed in preparation for him being arrested: “If you are listening to me through this video today, it means that I was not able to make the press conference that I planned for April 11.”Ghosn was initially arrested in November 2018 over allegations of financial crimes. He was released on bail on March 6. Since his initial arrest, Ghosn has resigned as chairman and CEO of Renault, been voted out of Nissan’s board by shareholders and is now reportedly under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission in the US.last_img read more

DC Loses Ward 7 Leader Ed Potillo

first_imgEd Potillo died suddenly on Aug. 9, impacting the city and several city leaders. Potillo recently stepped down from his position as chairman of the Ward 7 Democrats and was the vice chairman of the Washington D.C. Democratic State Committee.Ed Potillo, Ward 7 political leader, died on Aug. 9. (Courtesy photo)“I am saddened to hear of the passing of Ed Potillo, a native Washingtonian who grew up in Ward 4’s Brightwood neighborhood, graduated from St. John’s College High School, and later loved serving his neighbors in Ward 7,” D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) said in a statement. “He was a mentor to many people – young and some a bit older – who like him, wanted to make their neighborhood, ward, and city a better place. We stood shoulder to shoulder for statehood and D.C. values last summer in Philadelphia and many times around the District. Ed will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and the Ward 7 community.”Potillo, 48, died because of an undisclosed lengthy illness. He held a bachelor’s degree in international studies and business from the University of Scranton.His council member and sometime political ally D.C. Councilmember Vincent Gray (D-Ward 7) spoke highly of Potillo. “Ed led a life dedicated to service since his early childhood,” Gray said. “He served two terms as chair of the Ward 7 Democrats from 2011 – until the spring of 2017 and prior to that, he served as programs chair for four years during which he assisted with the annual Lorraine H. Whitlock Scholarship and Recognition Dinner and winter coat drive. He also served as vice chairman of the D.C. Democratic State Committee since 2014.“He has been an advocate committed to helping others, be it through his work as conference and membership director for the National Alliance of Black School Educators or the numerous organizations he volunteered his time and talents to including Push Literacy Action Now, the Transition Housing Corporation, Us Helping Us, People into Living and Damien Ministries, among others. Ed’s advocacy on issues impacting our community will be missed, but we can rest assured in knowing that his legacy of empowering others’ lives on.”Potillo was briefly a candidate for the Ward 7 D.C. Council seat in 2016 but dropped out before the Democratic primary. Gray won the party primary and was re-elected to his council seat in the Nov. 8 general election in 2016.D.C. Council member Anita Bonds (D-At Large) said that Potillo’s departure was an especially painful one for her. “He will surely be remembered for his generous spirit, understanding heart and quick wit among the many other outstanding attributes that come to mind as each of us revisits our time with Ed and being under his enveloping positive influence,” Bonds, chairman of the D.C. Democratic State Committee, said. “While we might question the why and why now, life teaches that there are no answers. However, for certain, Ed’s life was not lived in vain and his good is remembered – the works, the projects that he fostered and poured himself into, and the numerous intelligent and meaningful conversations one had with him will live through the organizations, communities, and individuals he assisted along the way.”Potillo was a solid political ally of Bonds in their time together on the D.C. Democratic State Committee and she could count on him for support on organizational issues.Potillo’s funeral services are in flux, as of AFRO press time. His mother, Omara Rooths and his sister Maritza Neal, have called on the community for help in burying Potillo and they are being assisted by the Marshall Heights Community Development Organization.“My mother and I are in dire need of funds to bury my brother Ed,” Neal said in a statement on a GoFundMe page set up for Potillo’s burial. “Unfortunately, his death was so unexpected and he didn’t have much. Whatever you can do to assist, we are forever grateful. We are trying to raise the funds as soon as possible so we can have his funeral Mass and burial.”As of Aug. 14, the page has raised $12,480 of a $15,000 goal.last_img read more

Artificial magnetic fields for light could illuminate correlated quantum systems

first_img In a recent study, a team of physicists, J. Otterbach, et al., from the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany and Vilnius University in Lithuania have proposed a new method for probing strongly correlated quantum systems. They show that it is possible to create artificial magnetic fields for stationary light using a uniformly rotating medium, such as a rotating optical lattice or other system. In this scenario, light behaves as a massive quantum particle in a magnetic field. The physicists predict that this system could enable scientists to study a variety of single- and many-particle quantum effects. The new design involves the use of photonic quasiparticles called stationary-light polaritons (or “heavy light”). Quasiparticles were recently suggested as a tool for investigating correlated quantum systems. In general terms, a quasiparticle can be thought of as a combination of a real particle and its surrounding environment. For instance, stationary-light polaritons are a superposition of photonic and matter excitations in the surrounding space. Unlike charged particles such as electrons, which are forced by a magnetic field into circular orbits, neutral particles such as quasiparticles do not couple with magnetic fields. “If one wants to see effects similar to electrons in solid state physics related to the presence of a magnetic field, one has to create an ‘effective’ magnetic field,” coauthor Michael Fleischhauer from the University of Kaiserslautern told PhysOrg.com. “We showed how to do this for ‘heavy light’ quasiparticles.” In the scientists’ proposed design, stationary-light polaritons are created in a rotating ensemble of atoms driven by counterpropagating lasers. The system consists of four states – two excited atomic states and two atomic ground states – which are coupled together in a closed configuration by four light fields with opposite polarizations. The scientists explain that the rotation of the light fields is similar to cold rotating gases that are used to trap cold atoms, except that the new system uses quasiparticles instead of atoms. Here, the polaritons can be described as quantum particles (either Schrodinger or two-component Dirac particles) in magnetic fields, and their effective mass can be adjusted by two control lasers. “Ideally, one wants to make the effective magnetic field as strong as possible,” Fleischhauer said. “For stationary-light quasiparticles, this [strength] can potentially be higher than what can be achieved for cold atoms.”Fleischhauer predicts that these artificial magnetic fields should be strong enough to allow researchers to study highly correlated quantum states, such as the fractional quantum Hall effect. Further, there are numerous experimental systems available today that could be used to implement this scheme.“In order to see the quantum effects one needs interactions,” he explained. “The magnetic field is, however, a necessary and important prerequisite. Its action leads (without interaction) to largely degenerate quantum states. … If interactions are switched on, the lowest energy state of the system becomes a very interesting many-body state with non-local quantum correlation. This is also the origin of the so-called fractionalized quantum Hall effect. These effects were interesting and important enough for two Nobel prizes (the integer quantum Hall effect by K. von Klitzing in 1985; and the fractional quantum Hall effect by R. Laughlin, H. Stoermer, and D. Tsui in 1998).” Cross-Dressing Rubidium May Reveal Clues for Exotic Computing Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — In general, the field of many-body physics involves the interactions and collective behavior of large numbers of particles. Scientists have made significant progress in exploring this field, which has led to applications in condensed matter physics, nuclear physics, and astrophysics. However, one challenging area that remains is understanding many-body systems on the quantum level. Two counterpropagating control lasers (blue arrows) interact with an atomic system to generate stationary-light polaritons, which behave as quantum particles in a magnetic field. The system could enable scientists to study many-body systems on the quantum level. Image credit: J. Otterbach, et al. ©2010 The American Physical Society. More information: J. Otterbach, J.
