Elastic and diffractive scattering in the LHC era: https://arxiv.org/abs/1902.05614
We review elastic and diffractive scattering of protons (called also "forward physics") with emphasis on the LHC data, especially those deviating from the expectations based on extrapolations from earlier measurements at the ISR, Fermilab and thus triggering searches for new ideas, models and theories. We list these new data and provide a brief introduction of available theoretical approaches, mainly those based on analyticity, crossing symmetry and unitarity, particularly the Regge-pole model realizing these concepts. Fits to the data are presented and tensions between theoretical predictions and the data that may indicate the way to further progress are in the focus of our paper.

Feynman's different approach to electrodynamics: https://arxiv.org/abs/1902.05799
We discuss a previously unpublished description of electromagnetism developed by Richard P. Feynman in the 1960s. Though similar to the existing approaches deriving electromagnetism from special relativity, the present one extends a long way towards the derivation of Maxwell's equations with minimal physical assumptions (in particular, without postulating Coulomb's law). Homogeneous Maxwell's equations are, indeed, derived by following a route different to the standard one, i.e. first introducing electromagnetic potentials in order to write down a relativistic invariant action, which is just the inverse approach to the usual one. Also, Feynman's derivation of the Lorentz force exclusively follows from its linearity in the charge velocity and from relativistic invariance. The obvious historical significance of such approach is then complemented by its possible relevance for didactics, providing a novel way to develop the foundations of electromagnetism, which can fruitfully supplement usual treatments.
