“Reborning” is the phenomenon in which customers purchase extravagantly expensive infant dolls – sometimes facsimiles of lost loved ones – that are amazingly lifelike in every particular.
Want to do some time travel? Find a wormhole. That's the tunnel in the space-time continuum that connects two disparate points — and a plot device for countless works of science fiction from "Star Trek" to "Contact" to "Interstellar." It's also the inspiration for a new work of...
Barry Humphries sat at a table overlooking the pool of his Beverly Hills hotel and blew his nose. He had just arrived from his home in London and was suffering with a common cold — something it's hard to imagine ever getting the better of his imperious (and better known) alter ego, Dame...
