Researchers at Cornell University's School of Applied and Engineering Physics have demonstrated a way to cloak, or hide, an event in time. The phenomenon is similar to what happens when you remove frames from a film by cutting and splicing, except that instead of losing data about an event, you hide that information. "We've split a [light] beam, slowing down the back end and speeding up the front end, so you get a gap in time," Alexander Gaeta, a professor at the school, told TechNewsWorld. "If there's any information or any data on the beam, we won't interfere with it," Gaeta said.

Very cool work and a very nicely done article. Thank you. I could see strapping a portable laser date insert module over a fiber cable bundle in the field and piggybacking signals while also cloaking the ride.

Should social media sites be held accountable for terrorists' communications?
Yes -- They are providing a platform to facilitate murder and mayhem.
Yes -- Everything must be done to protect society from danger.
Maybe -- I'm not sure they have the technological capability to stop them.
Maybe -- I'm not convinced terrorists are using them for serious plotting.
No -- Authorities should monitor social networks to gather intelligence.
No -- Social networks are no different than phone carriers or mail services.
