Hayley lands in the hospital, she sees two doctors making fun of a janitor and shames them into leaving him alone. The janitor turns out to be Matt, a millionaire who takes on odd challenges to experience life. They hit it off and he invites her to join in some of his adventures. Skydiving into the house, he impresses the family, and brings them a new house.

Meanwhile, Steve finds a CB radio and takes it to Snot where they play with it until they discover a girl who is willing to chat with them but lose the signal. Steve discovers Jeff on the air and tells Hayley. She follows the tale of his adventures and tells the family, but learns he has no idea how to get home. Stan objects, wishing Hayley to stay with the millionaire. Despite the distance, Jeff is determined to make the long-distance relationship work.
As they share messages, she ignores messages from Matt. Reluctant to lose Matt, Stan and Roger try to hook Matt up with one of Roger's personas without luck. Francine also tries to get Hayley to move on, skeptical about Jeff's return.
The Longest Distance Relationship
History of Science I have long been fascinated by the interplay between ideas and institutions. Becoming a physicist in s Britain or s Germany was not the same as in s America. What effects did those differences in training regimes and research institutions have on the knowledge that was produced? More broadly, how does scientific knowledge -- that paragon of objectivity, seemingly impervious to political exigencies or cultural cues -- bear the marks of time and place?
The Dispersion of Feynman Diagrams in Postwar Physics University of Chicago Press, traces how the American physicist Richard Feynman's idiosyncratic approach to quantum physics entered the mainstream. Ubiquitous today throughout nearly every branch of modern physics, the diagrams did not enter physicists' toolkit overnight. Personal mentoring and extended face-to-face contact proved crucial for putting the diagrams into circulation.
Once they did begin to circulate, physicists crafted a dizzying array of uses and interpretations for them, far beyond anything Feynman had imagined. Drawing on insights from sociology and art history, the book scrutinizes what it takes for strange new tools to become "second nature.
How the Hippies Saved Physics: Norton, focuses on the rocky transition of the s and s. Caught off-guard as physicists' postwar boom years turned to bust, a small group banded together to carve out a new role for the physicist. Bell's theorem and quantum entanglement, for example, suggested possibilities for mind reading.
The group carved out a parallel universe, outside academia, and parlayed their interest into a widespread cultural phenomenon. They cultivated a new set of patrons, from the CIA to self-made entrepreneurs of the California "human potential" movement; and they established alternative forums in which to puzzle through the foundations of quantum theory, including a long-running seminar series at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.
Items from the group also got picked up in the nation's physics classrooms, smuggling back in some sustained attention to the foundations of quantum theory. As I trace in the book, the group's brainstorming sessions laid crucial groundwork for today's quantum information science. Watch a lecture based on the book. Particle Cosmology My physics research is in particle cosmology, working at the interface of particle physics and gravitation.
In particular, most of my work has focused on inflationary cosmology: For a review, see " Inflationary Cosmology.
Much like the early universe, our group has grown rapidly. Back row, L to R: Front row, L to R: Juanita Becerra, William Spitzer. Photo by Matthew Joss. My interest has centered on whether successful inflation might be achieved with familiar particles from the Standard Model of particle physics, such as the Higgs boson. Recent work has focused on predictions from models with several interacting fields, and whether multifield models produce new features that could be observed in the cosmic microwave background radiation, compared to single-field models.
Much of this work has also concerned interactions between matter and gravity that extend beyond Einstein's general relativity, and whether such "nonminimal couplings" might account for specific observable features in the spectrum of primordial perturbations.
For a brief and accessible introduction to this work, see " Elegant Wiggles: Why the Universe is Lumpy. In the process, the supercooled state during inflation eventually reaches thermal equilibrium at some high temperature, setting the stage for standard big-bang cosmic evolution. Understanding reheating is therefore critical for connecting two well-tested cosmic epochs: In many models, the energy that had driven inflation decays resonantly, far from equilibrium.
The nonperturbative techniques used to study reheating can also be applied to many other kinds of interactions, such as phase transitions in condensed-matter physics and in nuclear physics.
For a review of post-inflation reheating, see " Nonperturbative dynamics of reheating after inflation. Another topic of interest is developing a loophole-free experimental test of Bell's inequality.
Albert Einstein famously dismissed quantum entanglement as "spooky actions at a distance," yet dozens of experimental tests on entangled systems since the s have upheld the strange predictions of quantum mechanics. Even in these fascinating experiments, however, several "loopholes" remain, which could allow a theory much like the type Einstein preferred to mimic the predictions of quantum theory. Our proposal uses real-time observations of some of the oldest light in the cosmos -- for example, from distant quasars -- to set the detector settings in a Bell test, while the entangled pair is in flight.
Together with Anton Zeilinger and his group in Vienna, we have conducted such tests using light from Milky Way stars and from very distant quasars. The results from each of these experiments are consistent with predictions from quantum theory, and place the strongest constraints to date on various alternatives to quantum theory.
For a brief introduction to Bell's inequality and quantum entanglement, read this excerpt in Scientific American from my book, How the Hippies Saved Physics. Together with Luis BettencourtI have been exploring whether the critical dynamics of topological phase transitions in scientists' collaboration networks might betray signs of universality.
Research areas in fields as disparate as theoretical physics and biomedicine might undergo the same basic teamwork and co-authorship mechanisms early in their histories, even though they involve vastly different numbers of researchers and published articles per year.
Outspoken commentators in the s and s fretted that American youth culture -- especially "hippies" and the counterculture -- turned its back on science and technology while chasing New Age enthusiasms. The essays in Groovy Science challenge that stereotype. Many members of the American counterculture sought a new kind of "groovy science": Several once-radical ideas of groovy science have since been absorbed into the mainstream -- their psychedelic, technicolor roots largely forgotten.
The twentieth century was one of astonishing change in science, especially as pursued in the United States.
