The United States Federal Reserve is usually the government office finding itself most often in the crosshairs of former Texas congressman Ron Paul, but now the longtime lawmaker is setting his sights on another agency: the Internal Revenue Service.
Paul’s relentless efforts to abolish the Fed have without a doubt been a hallmark of the 78-year-old libertarian’s career in Congress, but recent attempts from the IRS to compel a nonprofit organization run by the former presidential hopeful for details about its contributors has pushed him to pursue yet another fight with the federal government.

The vertebrae that make up our spine have the critical task of housing and protecting the spinal cord, a thin bundle of nervous tissue hooked up directly to the brain. The spinal cord in part transmits movement information from the brain to the muscles. In fact, the function of the spinal cord can be divided into segments based on the muscles they control: Nerves from the lower vertebrae in the neck help extend the elbows and flex the wrists, while nerves from the lower back vertebrae assist in extending the legs and toes. Spinal cord injury can result in different degrees of paralysis depending on which segment was affected.

Scientists Discover a Jewel at the Heart of Quantum Physics
Physicists reported this week the discovery of a jewel-like geometric object that dramatically simplifies calculations of particle interactions and challenges the notion that space and time are fundamental components of reality.
“This is completely new and very much simpler than anything that has been done before,” said Andrew Hodges, a mathematical physicist at Oxford University who has been following the work. The revelation that particle interactions, the most basic events in nature, may be consequences of geometry significantly advances a decades-long effort to reformulate quantum field theory, the body of laws describing elementary particles and their interactions. Interactions that were previously calculated with mathematical formulas thousands of terms long can now be described by computing the volume of the corresponding jewel-like Amplituhedron which yields an equivalent one-term expression.
“The degree of efficiency is mind-boggling,” said Jacob Bourjaily, a theoretical physicist at Harvard University and an author of the first of two papers detailing the new idea. “You can easily do, on paper, computations that were infeasible even with a computer before.” -Natalie Wolchover, Quanta Magazine
