Jo Nesbo's Headhunters Opens in U.S. Theaters April 27

Over the past year, I've read about a half dozen of Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo's novels. If you are heading on vacation this summer, I recommend you pick a few up at the bookstore. Now the first of his books appears in U.S. theaters with the April 27 release of the Danish film Headhunters, based on the novel by the same name.

Below is the trailer followed by theaters showing the film in the States.

  • Scientists find 16 'ultra-black' fish species that absorb 99.9% of light

    These alien-like creatures are virtually invisible in the deep sea.

    • A team of marine biologists used nets to catch 16 species of deep-sea fish that have evolved the ability to be virtually invisible to prey and predators.
    • "Ultra-black" skin seems to be an evolutionary adaptation that helps fish camouflage themselves in the deep sea, which is illuminated by bioluminescent organisms.
    • There are likely more, and potentially much darker, ultra-black fish lurking deep in the ocean.

    Why information is central to physics and the universe itself

    Information may not seem like something physical, yet it has become a central concern for physicists. A wonderful new book explores the importance of the "dataome" for the physical, biological, and human worlds.

    • The most important current topic in physics relates to a subject that hardly seems physical at all — information, which is central to thermodynamics and perhaps the universe itself.
    • The "dataome" is the way human beings have been externalizing information about ourselves and the world since we first began making paintings on cave walls.
    • The dataome is vast and growing everyday, sucking up an ever increasing share of the energy humans produce.

  • The experiments involved giving dogs information about the location of food.
  • The majority of the dogs did not follow false suggestions when they knew humans were lying.
