Information paradox solved? If so, black holes are 'fuzzballs'
Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne may owe John Preskill a set of encyclopedias. In 1997, the three cosmologists made a famous bet about whether information that entering black holes ceases to exist - rather, is the interior of a black hole changed at all by the characteristics of particles that enter it. Now physicists have proposed a solution using string theory, which holds that all particles in the universe are made of tiny vibrating strings.

Bar characteristics, women's behavior in bars tied to their risk for bar-related aggression
Environmental characteristics of bars, as well as women's behavior in bars, influence their risk for bar-related aggression, according to a study conducted by researchers in the University at Buffalo's Research Institute on Addictions.
Alcoholic Beverage Medical Research Foundation, NIH/National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism

From the full press release: "The study showed that heavy drinking, going to and leaving a bar with individuals not well-known to the women and talking to a greater number of individuals while in the bar environment are social behaviors associated with bar-related aggression. The competitive activity of playing pool and illegal activities involving drug sales or prostitution in a bar were identified as increasing the risk of severe physical aggression."
