Physicists made a superconductor that works at room temperature. It could one day give rise to high-speed floating trains.

When squeezed between two diamonds, a material made of carbon, sulfur, and hydrogen can become a superconductor. J. Adam Fenster/University of Rochester Superconductors are materials that effortlessly conduct electricity. Until now, they've only worked at temperatures of minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  But researchers recently found a superconductor that works at ambient temperatures when under immense pressure. They're now trying to make it work without that pressure. Widespread supercondu...

Rams have Brandon Staley on their side for this Bears game

THOUSAND OAKS — They can laugh about it now, since they’re on the same side getting ready for a prime-time Rams-Chicago Bears game coming up on Monday.

Opinion: The Chicago 7 trial feels very real in 2020

When a movie begins by noting it is based on a true story, I instinctively wonder how Hollywood will exaggerate reality to ensure viewers are entertained. So, when a year ago papers reported that Aaron Sorkin was making a movie about the long-ago trial of the Chicago 7, I was intrigued.

By Anthony Izaguirre | Associated Press U.S. Postal Service records show delivery delays have persisted across the country as millions of Americans are voting by mail, raising the possibility of ballots being rejected because they arrive too late.

Rams see Kai Forbath as a seasoned alternative at kicker

Forbath, the former Notre Dame High (Sherman Oaks) and UCLA kicker whom the Rams signed on Tuesday, won’t be able to clear the league’s COVID-19 protocols and join the team until Sunday. That makes it likely that struggling rookie Samuel Sloman will still be kicking for the Rams (4-2) in their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears (5-1) — with Forbath, a nine-ye...
