• What If the Big Bang Was Actually a Big Bounce?

    Steinhardt and company imagine a universe that expands for perhaps a trillion years, driven by the energy of an omnipresent (and hypothetical) field, whose behavior we currently attribute to dark energy. When this energy field eventually grows sparse, the cosmos starts to gently deflate. Over billions of years a contracting scale factor brings everything a bit closer, but not all the way down to a point. The dramatic change comes from the Hubble radius, which rushes in and eventually becomes microscopic. The universe’s contraction recharges the energy field, which heats up the cosmos and vaporizes its atoms. A bounce ensues, and the cycle starts anew.

    In the bounce model, the microscopic Hubble radius ensures smoothness and flatness. And whereas inflation blows up many initial imperfections into giant plots of multiverse real estate, slow contraction squeezes them essentially out of existence. We are left with a cosmos that has no beginning,

  • Good news: The Malaysia-Singapore border is opening. But do keep these 4 things in mind.

    After rounds of talks between their respective Foreign Ministers, Singapore and Malaysia are finally opening their borders to each other this month in a special ‘travel bubble’ of sorts for their citizens.

    Under the agreement made between the neighboring countries, prospective travelers must qualify for one of two travel schemes: either the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) or the Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA).

    The RGL is designed for business travelers who need to go on essential trips lasting up to 14 days. Regardless of nationality, anyone is allowed to travel under this scheme as long as they’re legal residents of either country.

    On the other hand, the PCA is for Malaysians and/or Singaporeans who hold work permits in the other country.

    The border officially opens on August 17, 2020. This means those who wish to travel between the two countries should start planning right now.

    But there are a few

  • WhatsApp working on multiple device support with chat sync

    Facebook-owned WhatsApp appears to be working on new multiple device support with synchronized chat history. WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is testing the ability to use an account on multiple devices, including a separate iPad app. WhatsApp currently supports multiple devices through WhatsApp Web, which connects back to a phone account.

    WhatsApp Web requires a phone to be powered on and connected to the web, but this new multiple device support won’t need to constantly connect back to a phone and will allow people to use WhatsApp on multiple devices simultaneously.

    This new multiple devices feature, which has been rumored for months, will also likely support chat history sync, allowing WhatsApp users to sync their messages across devices. WABetaInfo also reports that WhatsApp will release its long-rumored iPad app once the multiple devices support is ready to be released.

    WhatsApp now has 2 billion users and has been introducing features to
