Quantum computers need memory to perform tasks like their conventional counterparts, but it’s hard to create that memory when it only takes nearby vibrating atoms to lose all their data. Scientists may have a clever solution, though: tune diamond li…

“Attention geeks living in their parents’ basements!” writes PolygamousRanchKid , sharing this story from NPR:
The promise of adventure didn’t do it. Neither did the lure of independence, or the weight of his 30 years. Instead, it took a judge to pry Michael Rotondo from his parents’ home. The couple won an eviction order against their son, after a judge argued with Rotondo for 30 minutes. “I don’t see why they can’t just, you know, wait a little bit for me to leave the house,” Rotondo told Donald Greenwood, a justice on the Onondaga County Supreme Court… Christina and Mark Rotondo resorted to legal action after a series of notes to their son (starting on Feb. 2) failed to get him to move out of their home in Camillus, New York, a town west of Syracuse. Those notes followed discussions that began last October. The notes to Michael Rotondo ranged from orders to leave and encouragement to get a job, to offers of more than $1,000 and help in finding a place… The notes escalated into a formally worded notice for Rotondo to leave that set a 30-day deadline — which lapsed on March 15… In a legal filing cited by CNYCentral, Rotondo said that in the eight years he has lived at his parents’ house, he “has never been expected to contribute to household expenses, or assisted with chores and the maintenance of the premises,” and that those conditions are simply part of an informal agreement. When he was in his early 20s, Rotondo briefly lived on his own, but he moved back in with his parents after losing a job… The case is being seen as an extreme example of a growing trend. As NPR reported in 2016, a Pew study found that, “For the first time in more than 130 years, Americans ages 18-34 are more likely to live with their parents than in any other living situation.”
