Update: The paper was withdrawn by the author.Lev Aizenberg had a highly provoking 6-page-long paper yesterday:
Aizenberg strengthens Lindelöf's hypothesis and claims that zeta(sigma+it) goes like O(log(t)1/4), with a coefficient allowed to be sigma-dependent, for every 1/2 < sigma < 1, a statement that contradicts older papers that assumed Riemann's Hypothesis to hold.
It's not even clear to me whether Aizenberg would receive a megadollar for such an unexpected proof if it were shown correct. I encourage skillful TRF readers to nuke (or verify) the "elementary" proof.
Update: in the middle of page 3, when he integrates by parts, he probably forgets some absolute values in the inequality, namely one associated with (t-t0). That allows him to incorrectly strengthen the estimates. Indirect consultation: Peter Sarnak.

Bonus I: Nude Socialist on string theory
Nude Socialist has a decent article about a cute heterotic paper that we discussed in September and included in the top events of 2007, namely Triadophilia...
Bonus II: Channel 4
Channel 4, the British TV channel known from the Great Global Warming Swindle, is preparing a new show with a rather famous host. It is called Stephen Hawking: the master of the Universe (The Sun). String theory and supersymmetry will be included.
