Royal baby: Internet goes wild over Prince William's joke as he leaves hospital with new son

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/ciP4W.jpg
Thrice worry now!

Prince William is garnering praise on Twitter for a funny little quip he made while loading his newborn son into his Range Rover outside of the Lindo Wing in London on Monday.

Wife Kate Middleton gave birth to the couple's third child on Monday morning at 11:01 am, and hours later the royals drove back to Kensington Palace after debuting their son to the world a remarkably quick turnaround!

While buckling his new son's car seat into the car, William had a short interaction with the adoring media and crowd outside of the hospital, where he held up three fingers and joked, "Thrice worry now!"

"Delighted. Very happy," he also said. "We didn't keep you waiting too long this time."

William and Kate's Body Language With Their Baby

http://s4.uploads.ru/t/SU3X2.jpg
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's love story is full of Hallmark moments that seem far from reality (our reality, at least). The arrival of their third baby, however, seemed out of the ordinary because IT. WAS. SO. NORMAL.

"If you were to quickly glance at the photos of them showing off their new baby boy, you wouldn't know that they're royal," Patti Wood, body language expert and author of SNAP: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language, and Charisma told GoodHousekeeping.com. (Just ignore Kate's sapphire sparkler, OK?) Despite the hype and attention, the couple acted as any new parents would - smiling, giddy, and totally smitten with one another.

http://s3.uploads.ru/t/f41w7.jpg
When it came time for baby #3, the royal couple was ready for whatever came their way. "In every photo of the couple, they are completely present with one another," says Wood. "This moment is 100% about the new addition to their family, and not the photographers, which is a pattern we see time and time again."

It's true: After a hectic day in the hospital (well, hours), the couple looks relaxed, calm, and honestly, a bit tired. "Even in a moment that's uncomfortable, the pair instantly relaxes when they lock eyes," Susan Constantine, human behavioral expert and author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Reading Body Language

This moment is similar to what we've seen following the birth of their previous children. "The couple is leaning toward one another," says Constantine. "With her double arm hold, it's almost as if Kate is presenting the baby to him - and Will's taking it all in as he turns his toes and torso toward his wife."

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/EQ1vo.jpg
There was no awkward car seat hassle this time - third time's the charm, eh? Constantine picked up on the couple's unison as they walked over to the car. "Their left feet are married," Constantine told us. "This is the type of behavior that you want to see in a couple, especially after they just had a baby. Not only are they in-sync but William also has raised brows and his hand on top of Kate's, which insinuates that he's trying to protect her." Her guess is that he's warning his wife - remember she's wearing heels! - to look out for the edge of the sidewalk.

If there was one moment to cherish forever, it would be this one:

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/aq4vZ.jpg
Do you see it? The baby and Kate are practically twins. "They are naturally mirroring one another's hand gestures," says Constantine. "Sure, Kate is fixing her hair from the wind but it's also an indicator of a strong rapport between the two."

Our hearts can't take it. Now we just have to wait for the first sighting of Prince George and Prince Charlotte with their newborn brother.

Queen Elizabeth clearly approves of Markle. And its a good thing she does, because the actress couldnt marry into the royal family without it.

In March 2018, the queen provided her official consent of Markles marriage to Prince Harry:

My Lords, I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council.

Apparently, even the queens corgis have given their official approval of Markle.
In Markles post-engagement interview with her fiancé, Harry revealed that Elizabeths corgis love Markle. However, theyve never exactly been a fan of him.

The corgis took to you straight away. For the last 33 years, Ive been barked at, and this one walks in, absolutely nothing, just wagging tails, Harry joked.

Markle chimed in,

Just laying on my feet during tea, it was very sweet.

Meet Prince Louis! Kate Middleton and Prince William name their royal baby

Meet Prince Louis Arthur Charles! The son of Kate Middleton and Prince William has been named, according to an announcement from Kensington Palace. (And yes, people have been sharing their hilarious reactions.)

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles.

The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge. pic.twitter.com/4DUwsLv5JQ
https://cdn4.tass.ru/width/744_b12f2926/tass/m2/uploads/i/20180427/4689585.jpg

Though the name Louis is traditionally associated with French royalty, it does have an interesting British royal connection. Louis VIII of France claimed the title of King of England from 1216 to 1217, though he was never formally crowned and ultimately surrendered the dubious claim. Both Louis and Arthur are part of Prince Williams full name: William Arthur Philip Louis. Meanwhile, big brother Prince George is George Alexander Louis.

Arthur was a popular choice from the start according to Vogue, Prince Charles wanted to name his son Arthur but Diana, Princess of Wales, nixed the idea.

And that leaves Charles, which is, of course, the name of the newborns paternal grandfather, who is next in line for the throne. Charles is also one of Prince Harrys middle names

Over the course of Middletons pregnancy, the world was split over whether the royal couple was expecting a boy or girl. Mary, Alice, Albert, and Arthur were top guesses among British bookkeepers.

For a while, Albert was a main pick. According to Today, Queen Victoria was so in love with her husband, Albert, that she declared all her male English descendants would bear his name and pressured her children to use it. Her persistence paid off Albert is also one of Prince Harry and Prince Andrews middle names

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/afDS7.jpg

As for girl names, Alice was a big bet because its the name of Williams great-grandmother (Prince Philips mother) and Queen Elizabeths aunt, the Duchess of Gloucester. And it was in the rotation before the birth of Will and Kates 2-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte.

Mary was also a legit possibility its the middle name of Queen Elizabeth and her grandmother, and of the first queen to rule: Mary I, aka Bloody Mary, for her tendency to burn detractors at the stake.

On a few occasions the royal couple had seemingly dropped hints about the sex of their unborn baby. For example, the U.K. Mirror reported that at a football game in April, William suggested that he wanted to name the baby after athlete Jack Grealish, saying, Im going to insist the baby is called Jack, adding or Jackie. And earlier in her pregnancy, when Middleton stepped out wearing a $2,100 hot pink Mulberry coat (which she wore twice while pregnant with Princess Charlotte), fans bet on a girl.

According to E!, however, the royal couple chose to remain in the dark about the sex, so they most likely bestowed the name at the last minute. William and Kate dont know the sex of the baby so theyre rather looking forward to finding out, a source told the site predelivery. Its very difficult to be totally prepared when you dont know if its going to be a boy or a girl.

Royal Couple Wars: Why Prince Charles and Camilla Are Threatened by Prince William and Kate Middleton

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/67w9i.jpg

Emma Bleznak

April 28, 2018

A revealing book on the royal family focused on one particularly popular relationship: Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, with their (step)son, Prince William, and his wife Kate Middleton. Charles, who is heir-apparent to the British throne, allegedly feels threatened by his sons presence in more ways than one.
We discovered the secrets behind the royal couples war, as well as some interesting facts about Tom Bower, the man behind the book (page 7).
http://s9.uploads.ru/t/FM9Wy.jpg

Charles and Camilla reportedly feel that Kates parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, get significantly more time with the grandchildren than they do. Tom Bower, a British investigative journalist, claimed that Prince Charles felt usurped by the Middletons and isolated from his grandchildren.
Will and Kate chose to spend Christmas with the Middletons in Bucklebury rather than with the other royals at Sandringham in Norfolk. A royal insider told PEOPLE that Charles was more receptive than he was bitter. He is pragmatic about it He is accepting that a daughter gravitates toward her own family.

Charles reportedly became worried after an isolated incident (next) that Will and Kate were becoming much more popular than he and Camilla. Charles saw Kate and William as the new stars and feared hed be in trouble, the chief executive of Charles charity foundation in America told Tom Bower.
Camilla didnt share the same fear, it seems. The public began to debate Kate becoming the first commoner queen, to which Camilla corrected them, Thatll be me.

William and Kate were invited to tour the Canadian government before Charles and Camilla

The biography reported Charles great fear came true when the Canadian government asked that he and Camilla postpone their tour of the country so that William and Kate could visit instead. He was reportedly left disappointed and became increasingly worried about where the publics attention lay.

Kate, Will, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte visited Canada and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in September 2016. Charles may have found it disconcerting, however, Kate and Wills spokesman called it the perfect opportunity to show their children the major Commonwealth realm before they had to start school.

Charles believes Diana poisoned the boys minds

Bower claimed that Princes William and Harry would go to great lengths to avoid Camilla early own, even entering the house through the servants quarters in order to avoid her and their father. Bower called Charles relationship with the boys strained during the divorce. He also reported that Charles believed Diana had poisoned the boys minds towards their father.

He wrote that Camillas presence was a constant reminder of their mothers torment as well as Dianas struggles with mental illness and adulterous behavior on both her and Charles part.

Charles had others snub Kates mother

After the Christmas debacle, Prince Charles reportedly felt hurt about how much time his grandchildren spent with the Middletons. Courtiers who remained loyal to the prince reportedly began to snub Carole Middleton during family events. An infuriated William sought advice from the queen.

Queen Elizabeth responded by allegedly hiring cameramen to film her and Carole Middleton driving around Balmoral estate together to appease William.

Prince Charles tried to work on his relationship with Kate

The book makes one claim that gives Charles fans hope: he reportedly tried to bond with Kate Middleton. He invited her to her first opera in the Royal Box at Covent Garden, however, the seats werent enough to strengthen his relationship with his daughter-in-law.

According to Bower, the night was an utter failure. Charles had hoped to show Kate why he loves classical music, but the production they saw was awful. The Telegraph reported otherwise in 2011: The Prince is a firm supporter of the Opera House and the Duchess also seems to hugely enjoy her visits to Covent Garden. Both have been very enthusiastic about the productions they have seen together, a Royal Opera House source said.

Tom Bowers unauthorized biography on Charles and its claims are reminiscent of Michael Wolffs alleged tell-all about Donald Trump and his administration. While the claims may be rooted in fact, the book certainly doesnt have the royal familys seal of approval.

Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles compile interviews with 120 sources about Prince Charles long wait to ascend the throne. Hes a pampered, petulant prince and a man who, while he wants to do good and does do good, does not realize that hes actually doing some harm as well, Bower told HuffPost UK. The author is facing multi-pound lawsuits over other books hes published.

Shes collected

Multiple friends of Middleton have all come to the same conclusion: In a high-pressure situation, the duchess keeps her cool. Shes very measured, very controlled, Richard Dennen, a magazine editor and friend of Middletons, told CNN. He recalled a nightclub that the duchess used to go to, Boujis, where she would frequently check her hair and makeup in the bathroom before facing the photographers outside.

School friend Jules Knight had a similar anecdote about her long-time friend. I havent seen her lose her temper with a photographer or lash out. In a way shes the perfect consort for Prince William because shes not a risky choice: shes smart and shes level-headed and shes well behaved.

She plays it safe

Large hats aside, Middletons friends find that the duchess plays it safe in fashion and friendship alike. She specifically doesnt want to be a fashion icon, Dennen told CNN. I think shes probably concerned with looking absurd.

The royal family wants to be known for its hard work rather than an eccentric style. Royals also pick and choose their confidants with a careful hand, according to Dennen. I think theyre extremely careful about the people they hang out with. They really trust their friends. I would say they dont actually have that many friends understandably.

Shes down to earth

The royal couples normalcy has made them a lovable, inspirational team. Multiple friends of Middletons call her, among other compliments, simply normal.

John Haley, the owner of a pub near Bucklebury, where Middleton grew up, has known Kate and her family for years. To the people in this village theyre just a normal couple who come in here and are liked and loved by loads of people, he told CNN.

Shes very close with her sister

Kates rise to royalty put a spotlight on her sister, Pippa Middleton, as well. On The Today Show, Pippa told host Matt Lauer, Were very close. We spend a lot of time together. We still do a lot together as a family. And I think thats really the heart for all of us is having a really close family that we can sort of be normal with each other, treat each other normally. And thats sort of kept us all, you know, affixed to the ground.

Kate and Pippa lived in Chelsea during Kate and Williams short-lived 2007 split. According to a biography about Kate, the sisters were very close. The two girls would have spray tans and blow-dries together, and decide which social events to attend, read an excerpt of the biography in Parade.

As a kid, she hung a picture of Prince William on her wall

According to Middletons childhood friend Jessica Hay, her marriage to Prince William was a long time coming. Vogue reports in the book William & Catherine: Their Story, Hay described Middletons crush on the prince. We would sit around talking about all the boys at school we fancied, but Catherine would always say: I dont like any of them, and then joke, Theres no one quite like Prince William.'

According to Vogue, Kate hung a picture of William on her bedroom wall growing up. But unlike the other plethora of girls to do so, Middleton won the heart of the prince in the end.

She was a dedicated student

School friend Jules Knight remembers Middleton as an extremely dedicated student, according to CNN. She met her early on at St. Andrews University. She studied Art History and she was a clever girl. She was a hard worker and committed and she obviously really applied herself to the academic side of university.

Malcolm Sotherland, an expedition leader on Middletons 10-week trip to Chile during her gap year, had similar praise. She wasnt lazy, she was a hard worker and got on well with everyone no matter where they were from, he told CNN. Sotherland also said Middleton was a very mature girl for her age. She knew what she was about, she knew how to look after herself.

She was an athlete

Both Kate and Pippa played on the field hockey team at their boarding school. Kate also ran cross country, swam, and played tennis while in school.

Kate is still athletic, reportedly swimming, running, and doing yoga in her free time. Middleton has been photographed training with the Sisterhood Cross Channel rowing team and rowed until it became a concern due to paparazzi. She and Prince William frequent the ski slopes, as well.

    Kates subtle maternity nod to Diana

While many noted the Duchess of Cambridges subtle nod to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, who wore a dress in the same red hue when she left hospital after Prince Harrys birth in 1984, others just couldnt get over how alike her frock looks to the one in the 1968 horror film.

http://s4.uploads.ru/t/zWE0e.jpg
It looks like it came right out of Rosemarys Baby starring Mia Farrow.

But, lets face it its probably just down to pure coincidence.

The dress Kate wore was designed by one of her favourite designers Jenny Packham.

Its the third time the royal has looked to Packham for her first appearances with her children.

Kim Jong-un: North Korea to allow foreign experts to witness nuclear site closure in May
The Telegraph Jamie Fullerton,The Telegraph Sun, Apr 29

http://s3.uploads.ru/t/Covw7.jpg
North Koreas leader Kim Jong-un
has said that he will dismantle his countrys main nuclear testing site in May, and that South Korean and US experts and journalists will be allowed to view the process.

The dictators pledge was made to Moon Jae-in, South Koreas prime minister,  during their historic talks on Friday, according to Mr Moons spokesman, Yoon Young-chan. As well as promising to close the Punggye-ri bomb testing site Kim said he would change North Koreas time zone by half an hour, reverting it to match South Koreas.

Kim and Mr Moon, meeting in a truce village between their countries borders on Friday, pledged to work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsular. The meeting, which some analysts have criticised for not producing firm plans for denuclearisation, came ahead of Kims scheduled talk with Donald Trump, expected within the next few weeks.

According to a team of Chinese geologists the Punggye-ri site may not be usable anyway, having reportedly suffered a land collapse following North Koreas sixth nuclear bomb test in September last year. However, according to Mr Yoon, Kim said the site has new tunnels that are bigger than its earlier-built facilities.

On Sunday Mr Yoon quoted Kim as saying: Once we start talking, the United States will know that I am not a person to launch nuclear weapons at South Korea, the Pacific or the United States If we maintain frequent meetings and build trust with the United States and receive promises for an end to the war and a non-aggression treaty, then why would ee need to live in difficulty by keeping our nuclear weapons?

Rocket man: How Kim Jong-un emerged from his father's shadow to silence the doubters

Analysts have cast doubt over the meaningfulness of Kims pledge. Before Fridays talks Jeffrey Lewis, director East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, said that Kim did not need the Punggye-ri site and could shift big tests to neighbouring mountains.

Mr Yoon suggested that Kims decision to alter North Koreas time zone was made when he saw two wall clocks in a summit room showing different times for the two countries, finding it heartbreaking.

Korean detente How did we get here?

In August 2015 North Korea announced a new Pyongyang time zone for the country, which was half an hour before Japan and South Koreas time zone. The move was made to symbolically distance North Korea from Japan, which occupied the country from 1910 until 1945.

Professor Tong Zhu, fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program at Beijings CarnegieTsinghua Center for Global Policy, told The Telegraph that such gestures would not make North Koreas full denuclearisation more likely. There is no way that North Korea is going to give up its nuclear deterrent capability, he said.

He added: North Korea worked so hard to obtain that capability in the first place. Its primary objective is to keep its nuclear capabilities, then the next priority is to address all the negative consequences resulting from its nuclear development. And then to develop a normal relationship with the rest of the international community.

Queen Elizabeth Cracked a Sly Joke About Trump in the Most Queen Elizabeth Way Possible

http://sd.uploads.ru/t/Qxfhq.jpg
Image Source: Getty / Max Mumby / Alex Wong

In case you missed it, Queen Elizabeth II is subtly hysterical. The British monarch may be 92 years old, but her deadpan sense of humor is still fully intact, as she's cracked jokes about everything from her age to her penchant for brightly colored clothing. The Queen has somehow resisted poking fun at Donald Trump during his presidency, as most of the internet tends to do, but that all changed when she chatted with English broadcaster Sir David Attenborough for the forthcoming ITV News documentary The Queen's Green Planet.

In a clip of Sir David's interview with the British royal, the two are waltzing through the private gardens at Buckingham Palace while chatting about her conservation efforts when they hear a noisy helicopter hovering overhead. "Why do they always go round and round when you want to talk? Sounds like President Trump or President Obama." Ha!

smiles while speaking at College Signing Day, an event honoring Philadelphia students for their pursuit of a college education or career in the military, Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at Temple University in Philadelphia.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Michelle Obama told college-bound Philadelphia high school seniors Wednesday about when she applied to universities. Her counselor advised her not to set her sights too high and warned that some of the schools on her list were out of her reach, the former first lady said.

"There are always haters out there telling you what you can't do," Obama told the students celebrating College Signing Day.

She did not heed her counselor's words. Instead, she attended Princeton University and Harvard Law School. Decades later, she accompanied her husband to the White House for two terms.

"I know that you are me," Obama told the crowd. "And if I can be standing here as your forever first lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to." The label, "forever first lady," came from actor Nick Cannon, who along with other A-listers joined Obama at the fifth annual celebration, the first in Philadelphia.

The event, held at Temple University, was not always, or often, solemn and serious. After Obama shared her thoughts, she broke out her dance moves alongside actors Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Zendaya and Rebel Wilson as they all advocated for higher education.

Obama pioneered the tradition in 2014 to congratulate young people who have chosen to further their education through a professional training program, community college, four-year institution or the military.

She closed the festivities, but a long list of known names preceded her. Karlie Kloss, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ciara, Camila Cabello, Malcolm Jenkins and other major entertainers and athletes lent their support to the college-bound students.

Johnathan Phan, a first-generation college student headed to Temple, said he's excited about the experience that wasn't afforded to his parents and other relatives. He also seemed enthusiastic before Obama's speech.

"I had a little crush on her when I was little," Phan said.

Obama previously has hosted College Signing Day events in New York City, Detroit and San Antonio.

Across the United States, 2,000 other College Signing Day events celebrated high school seniors continuing their educations after graduation.

Meghan Markle's half-brother wants Prince Harry to call off the royal wedding

http://sg.uploads.ru/t/7wN2P.jpg
Thomas Markle Jr., who has the same father as Markle, shared his letter with In Touch magazine. His rant accuses the former actress as being a jaded, shallow, conceited woman who is obviously not the right woman for the prince.

He also says that Markle whom hes previously mentioned he hasnt seen since 2011 will make a joke of Prince Harry and the royal family heritage.

Its not to [sic] late, Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you, Markle Jr. writes.
http://s9.uploads.ru/t/Lpjk5.jpg

It became very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history. Im confused why you dont see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees, he continues. Meghans attempt to get the part of a princess like a below C-average Hollywood actress is getting old.

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/b3Qgv.jpg
Both of Meghan Markles half-siblings have been vocal about her relationship. (Photo: Pexels)

Markle Jr. then claims that his half-sister used her father for money, leaving him bankrupt and broke over mostly all her debts. And when its time to pay him back she forgets her own father like she never knew him. My father will never recover financially from paying Meghans way.

According to Markle Jr., his half-sibling hasnt invited her own family to the wedding but has welcomed complete strangers. Hes calling on Prince Harry to put an end to this fake fairytale wedding.

And despite reports suggesting otherwise, he asserts that Markle didnt invite their father.
http://sd.uploads.ru/t/EdbtO.jpg
The pair were engaged in November 2017.
(Photo: PA)

But Markle Jr. ends by highlighting his familial bond to the bride.

Meghan is still my sister, he writes. She is family. So whatever happens is up to her; whether she wants to forget knowing me or the rest of her family, family comes first.

Also you would think that a proper royal wedding would bring a torn family closer together. But I guess were all distant family to Meg.

He isnt the only half-sibling to stir things up.

Samantha Grant, Markles older half-sister, is reportedly writing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushys Sister.

That title says it all.

The Adorable Thing Kate and William Always Do When They Talk to George and Charlotte

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/lpUHw.jpg
Image Source: Getty

Kate Middleton and Prince William have always had a soft spot for kids. Even before they became a family of five, it wasn't rare to see them interact with some of their youngest fans during official visits and royal tours, and they've since been able to put those skills to good use.

While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge do get helped by a nanny, it doesn't stop them from being hands on parents to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. In fact, Kate and William seem to be approaching parenthood in a way that few other royals have: whatever the occasion, the young parents can often be seen kneeling down when they talk to their adorable children.

By using this technique, Kate and William don't try to assert their authority over George or Charlotte; instead, they are able to look into their eyes, encouraging them to communicate even more and showing them that what they're saying really matters. Of course, this has resulted in William being hilariously scolded by the Queen, but we can't help but love this small gesture.

Science
Stephen Hawkings last paper has been published on multiverse theory

The last paper Stephen Hawking wrote before he died has now been published in the Journal of High Energy Physics. Though some version of the paper has been available on the preprint site arXiv since last year, it was submitted to the journal for review just days before Hawking passed, and it deals with some theoretical physics about the many universes that might have been created by the Big Bang.

A theory about the Big Bang depicts our cosmos as one that could have an infinite number of universes that sit within a larger fabric. And parts of that multiverse continue to expand, experiencing an eternal inflation that lasts forever. But with so many universes on the table, of all different types, it makes it difficult to figure out why ours is the way it is. Hawking was tackling this idea alongside Thomas Hertog, a professor at the University of Leuven in Belgium, and they both disliked some of the implications of this theory. "Neither Stephen nor I were happy with that scenario," Hertog told BBC News. "It suggests that the multiverse emerged randomly and that we can't say very much more about that. We said to each other, 'Maybe we have to live with it.' But we didn't want to give up."

In this paper, the two present a mathematical approach that might limit the number of possible universes to those with laws of physics like our own. "The laws of physics that we test in our labs did not exist forever. They crystallised after the Big Bang when the universe expanded and cooled," said Hertog. "The kind of laws that emerge depends very much on the physical conditions at the Big Bang. By studying these we aim to get a deeper understanding of where our physical theories come from, how they arise and whether they are unique."

"We are not down to a single, unique universe, but our findings imply a significant reduction of the multiverse, to a much smaller range of possible universes," Hawking said about the work before he died. "It reduces the multiverse down to a more manageable set of universes which all look alike," Hertog told the Guardian.

Some have said a Nobel Prize might have been on the table if Hawking hadn't died. But many don't necessarily agree. The work presents ideas that are currently untestable and while they may launch new discussions or provide a new angle from which to consider our universe's beginnings, it's all theoretical for now. Sabine Hossenfelder, a theoretical physicist with the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, said on her blog that the ideas put forward in this paper join others that are currently pure speculation and don't yet have any evidence to support them. She makes it clear that while the proposals aren't uninteresting, Hawking and Hertog haven't found a new way to detect the existence of universes other than our own. "Stephen Hawking was beloved by everyone I know, both inside and outside the scientific community," she wrote. "He was a great man without doubt, but this paper is utterly unremarkable."

Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek agrees, telling Gizmodo, "It's heavy on speculative assumptions, and I don't see any concrete predictions." And Hawking and Hertog note in the paper that the ideas need more development.

Hertog believes evidence supporting or refuting the work might be found in gravitational waves that could be detected by the European Space Agency's Laser Interferometer Space Antenna that's scheduled to launch in 2034. "I'm reasonably hopeful that both further observations and further work on the theory will eventually enable us to test our models of the Big Bang," he told the Guardian. "We are not doing this for Platonic pleasure. Though it is fun."

Hawking's last physics paper argues for a 'simpler' cosmos

Hawking's last physics paper argues for a 'simpler' cosmos

NEW YORK Weeks after his death, physicist Stephen Hawking has delivered his last thoughts about the nature of the cosmos, and he says it may be simpler than often believed.

Well, simpler if you understand theoretical physics, anyway. It remains incomprehensible for the rest of us.

A paper that outlines his view, written with Thomas Hertog of the University of Leuven in Belgium before Hawking's death in March, has been published by the Journal of High Energy Physics. Hertog had announced the new theory last year at a conference celebrating Hawking's 75th birthday.

The University of Cambridge, where Hawking worked, announced the publication on Wednesday.

Here's a very simplified version of what it says. First, some background.

Scientists believe our universe sprang into existence with the Big Bang, followed by an unimaginably rapid expansion known as inflation. Within our observable universe, inflation ended long ago.

But some ideas of inflation say it never stops, persisting in other regions of the cosmos forever. This eternal inflation produces a "multiverse," a collection of pocket universes of which our own universe is just one.

There may be an infinite number of these pocket universes. If they're all very different, then how typical is the universe we live in, where scientists make their observations?

That's a key question for understanding the fundamental laws of nature, and finding a way to estimate what types of universes are probable is a big challenge, said physics professor David Kaiser of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Many people have tried to tackle that question, but Hawking approached it from a point of view shaped by his long study of the intersection of quantum theory and gravity, he said.

Hawking's paper suggests that there may be a much smaller range of possibilities for universe types than previous estimates had suggested. So "the behaviour of our own, observable universe might not be a rare outlier, but perhaps (be) relatively typical," Kaiser said in an email.

"Naturally," Kaiser said, "this is all rather speculative."

Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics called it "a stimulating, but not revolutionary paper."

Six weeks after his death at the age of 76, Stephen Hawkings final paper has  been published

Stephen Hawkings final theory was published this week and it raises the possibility we could one day detect traces of other universes using space telescopes on Earth.

Professor Hawking worked on the theory with Professor Thomas Hertog from KU Leuven and it predicts that the universe is finite, not infinite, and simpler than we thought.

Hertog believes that the new theory (which rules out the idea of an infinite number of universes) might allow us to detect traces of other pocket universes in the cosmic background radiation left over from the Big Bang.

Many theories of the Big Bang predict that our local universe came into existence with a brief burst of incredibly rapid inflation.

In some areas of the universe, the inflation hasnt stopped but we live in a pocket where inflation has ended, and stars and galaxies have formed.

Hawking said in an interview last year, The usual theory of eternal inflation predicts that globally our universe is like an infinite fractal, with a mosaic of different pocket universes, separated by an inflating ocean.

The local laws of physics and chemistry can differ from one pocket universe to another, which together would form a multiverse. But I have never been a fan of the multiverse. If the scale of different universes in the multiverse is large or infinite the theory cant be tested.

In their new paper, Hawking and Hertog say this account of eternal inflation as a theory of the big bang is wrong.

Hawking said, We predict that our universe, on the largest scales, is reasonably smooth and globally finite. So it is not a fractal structure.

We are not down to a single, unique universe, but our findings imply a significant reduction of the multiverse, to a much smaller range of possible universes, said Hawking.

This makes the theory more predictive and testable and could mean that in future, scientists could detect traces of other pocket universes.

Hertog now plans to study the implications of the new theory on smaller scales that are within reach of our space telescopes.

He believes that primordial gravitational waves ripples in spacetime generated at the exit from eternal inflation constitute the most promising smoking gun to test the model.

The expansion of our universe since the beginning means such gravitational waves would have very long wavelengths, outside the range of the current LIGO detectors.

But they might be heard by the planned European space-based gravitational wave observatory, LISA, or seen in future experiments measuring the cosmic microwave background.

The 1 Nail Polish Color Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle Are Allowed to Wear, According to the Queen

The queen is very particular about nail polish. And while it would make sense that she prefers an expensive, 18-karat gold nail lacquer, its actually quite the opposite. The queens go-to? Essie nail polish. At around $9 a pop, the popular nail care brand may be one of the most relatable if not, the only relatable thing about the queen.

2. Her favorite nail polish color is Essies Ballet Slippers

The queen of England doesnt love just any Essie nail polish color. In fact, her favorite nail polish color is a light pink hue called Ballet Slippers.

3. Her hairdresser wrote a letter to Essie requesting the nail polish

According to Essies website, the queens hairdresser wrote a letter to Essie Weingarten herself and asked her to send a bottle of the nail lacquer, as it was the only nail polish color she would wear.

The queen has been rocking Essie Ballet Slippers since 1989 and its still one of her favorite colors.

5. The polish is considered a cult classic

http://sg.uploads.ru/t/zIRTg.jpg
The queen isnt the only person obsessed with the pale pink polish, from supermodel must-haves to movie quotes, Ballet Slippers has received an enormous amount of press throughout the years and is considered a cult-favorite.

6. Nude nail polish is also OK

While Ballet Slippers may be the only color the queen wears, shes not opposed to nude nail polish. If Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle wish to wear Butter LONDON in Steady On, or Zoya Nail Polish in Cala, they can. In fact, as long as their nails are painted in a nude or neutral color, theyre in the clear.

7. How your nails look matter to the queen
