first_imgLudhiana: Twenty inmates of the Ludhiana Central Jail were booked on Friday, a day after a clash between two groups of gangsters on the prison premises, police said. A case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 307 ( attempt to murder ) was registered against 20 inmates of the jail involved in Thursday’s violence, Ludhiana Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Ashwani Kapoor said.

Punjab Jails minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, who visited the central jail to take stock of the situation, faced protests from the relatives and friends of those injured in the clash. They raised slogans against the state government and the minister. Randhawa told reporters that in order to avoid recurrence of such incidents in jails, ‘Prison Action Force’ would be set up in the state prisons on the lines of the Rapid Action Force.

These would be deployed at Bathinda, Ludhiana and Amritsar, the minister said. The mother of undertrial Avtar Baba, who fell to the bullets of police on Thursday, said they would not let the post-mortem be done till a case of murder is registered against the persons responsible for the killing of her son. She claimed that her son was innocent. An inmate of the Ludhiana Central Jail was killed and 35 were injured when a clash broke between two groups of gangsters Thursday, prompting police to open fire to bring the situation under control. A senior police officer was among those injured in the incident. The trouble started soon after a jail inmate, undergoing a trial in a drug case, died at a Patiala hospital Thursday.last_img read more

5 northern states suggest NIAtype agency to deal with drugs

first_imgShimla: Faced with the problem of largescale drug trafficking, primarily resulting in its massive abuse among youths, in the age group of 16 to 30, five northern states gave nod to a joint strategy to curb smuggling, sale and consumption of drugs within their territories.This was a second meeting held within 11 months in Chandigarh at the initiative of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur and his Punjab counterpart Capt Amarinder Singh. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM'”The issue is very ticklish. It involves a very aggressive and sustained effort to crack drug mafia. Unless all the states come together the problem will continue hit all the states. Thus, the meeting of states holds quite a significance,” Thakur told the Millennium Post. Chief Secretary B K Aggarwal, who was also present in the meeting said it was informed in the meeting by officials of the Narcotics Control Bureau that smuggling of drugs from across the border has been brought down effectively. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KNow, the mafia, across the borders, has devised new ways to send consignments. They are sending consignments concealed in the tradeable goods. This is a new challenge. In the meeting, a proposal was also mooted to ask the Centre to set-up a specialised agency on the lines of National Investigation Agency (NIA) to crack drug mafia and reach to their kingpins, who runs high profile rackets and devise newer ways to send heavy consignments. Chief Ministers of Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh, besides senior officers of the Jammu-Kashmir, UT Chandigarh and Delhi governments attended the meeting. “Drug abuse is posing a major threat to society. As Himachal Pradesh shares its boundaries with these it is essential that a joint action plan is effectively implemented for dealing with drug smuggling at inter-state level,” said Jai Ram Thakur. In Himachal, 1622 cases relating to drug smuggling were registered till June this year and 789 people were arrested. These included 27 women and two foreign nationals. Amongst the arrested people, 40 per cent are from Punjab and 25 per cent from Haryana state, which indicates that most of the people involved in the illicit drug business are from other states. Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh informed that Punjab, which had faced a big challenge to fight against the drugs has been able to get some positive results. Chief Minister of Uttarakhand TS Rawat, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar also attended the meeting. Himachal Pradesh, during the past few years, has become a new market for the drug mafia to make deep inroads. Mostly targets are school and college students. A study shows 55 -60 per cent of youths are addicted to drugs in Shimla, and also other rural towns.last_img read more

Dissension among Council as 5 out of 7 in favour of pay

first_imgAs of January 1, 2019, the Federal Government has a removed a 33% tax exemption for election officials.  With the removal of the tax exemption, municipally elected officials will now receive less take-home pay.With the approval, the Mayor’s salary will increase to $89,130 compared to $83,430.  Each Councillor would see their income change from $31,286 to $32,850.Councillor Trevor Bolin expressed “My thoughts are doing it without a surplus and making it apart of the budget in 2020/2023 and holding the line because we are a little behind the gun by doing this last year based on this January and not doing it back,”The additional $18,525 to fund the pay raise could be found in the operating budget shared the City Manager as a way to reallocate some funds. By adjusting the operating budget, what is being asked of the taxpayer, holding off until the 2020 budget or using the surplus funds were the available options for Council.“It’s the fact we should have been doing this a year ago, we should have been prepped, and aware changes were coming and worked it into the budget,” said Councillor BolinThe vote took place, and five were in favour of the recommendation that Council members should not be penalized by receiving less remuneration in 2019 than they did in 2018 due to changes at the Federal level. Also, the recommendation includes the COLA increase that is included in the Council’s current policy that ensures that the Council’sremuneration does not fall behind the cost of living increases.

UN court rules against Italy in case over Nazi compensation claims

3 February 2012The United Nations International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled today that Italy has violated its obligation to respect Germany’s immunity under international law by allowing civil claims seeking reparations for Nazi war crimes to be brought against it in Italian courts. Germany filed the case in December 2008 after a court in Italy ordered Berlin to compensate an Italian civilian sent to a German labour camp in 1944. Germany had claimed that the ruling failed to respect the jurisdictional immunity that it has a right to under international law.It had also claimed that it had already paid reparations under international treaties with Italy and argued that as a sovereign State it has immunity in Italian courts. At the same time, it fully acknowledged the untold suffering inflicted on Italians during the war. “The Italian Republic has violated its obligation to respect the immunity which the Federal Republic of Germany enjoys under international law by allowing civil claims to be brought against it based on violations of international humanitarian law committed by the German Reich between 1943 and 1945,” the ICJ, also known as the World Court, stated in its judgment. Italy has also violated Germany’s immunity by taking measures of constraint against Villa Vigoni, German State property situated in Italian territory, and by declaring enforceable in Italy decisions of Greek civil courts based on violations of international humanitarian law committed in Greece by Nazi Germany.The Court added that Italy must ensure that the decisions of its courts and those of other judicial authorities infringing on Germany’s immunity “cease to have effect.” Germany has paid tens of millions of dollars in reparations, under various agreements, for crimes committed during the Second World War.Established in 1945, and based in The Hague in the Netherlands, the ICJ settles legal disputes between States and gives advisory opinions on legal questions that have been referred to it by other authorized UN organs. read more

Security cut off for cesspool of hate 8chan forum

NEW YORK — An online message board accused of hosting extremist content was temporarily inaccessible Monday after its cybersecurity provider cut off support for a “cesspool of hate” following mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.8chan returned an error message after midnight California time, when Cloudflare Inc. said its support would end. There was no immediate explanation, but lack of security support would leave the site open to online attacks that might block access.Police are investigating commentary posted on 8chan that is believed to have been written by the suspect in a shooting Saturday that killed 20 people in El Paso, Texas.8chan’s operators said on Twitter that there might be “some downtime” for 24 to 48 hours while they looked for a solution.The suspect in El Paso “appears to have been inspired” by discussions on 8chan, said Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince in a blog post on his company’s site. He said a suspect in an earlier shooting at a synagogue in Poway, California, also posted a “hate-filled ‘open letter’” on 8chan.“8chan has repeatedly proven itself to be a cesspool of hate,” wrote Prince. “They have proven themselves to be lawless and that lawlessness has caused multiple tragic deaths.”The Associated Press read more

Starting Great Lakes mission Security Council team holds talks in Pretoria

This morning, the Council mission met with South Africa’s Deputy-President, Jacob Zuma, in the presence of the Foreign Minister of Gabon, Jean Ping. The delegation, which is led by Ambassador Jean-David Levitte of France, then met with Burundi rebel groups. Ambassador Levitte said the Council strongly supported the facilitation on the crisis in Burundi and urged the rebel groups to cease hostilities immediately. According to a UN spokesman, the French Ambassador stressed the need for a ceasefire now, warning that time was of the essence and tomorrow could be too late. After arriving in Pretoria on Sunday afternoon, team members held closed-door meetings with Ambassador Mahmoud Kassem, Chairman of the Panel of Experts on the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources and other forms of Wealth in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The meeting was followed by a working dinner with five representatives of the Congolese Rally for Democracy (RCD) and five representatives of the Unarmed Opposition. Ambassador Levitte welcomed the significant progress made in the inter-Congolese dialogue, which ended on 19 April in Sun City, South Africa, the UN spokesman said. The Council mission also encouraged all those that had declined to be party to this agreement to be flexible and to continue negotiations with a view to consolidating the political process that had just been launched. read more

General Assembly approves declaration banning all forms of cloning

By a vote of 84 in favour, 34 against and 37 abstaining, with 36 absent, the Assembly acted on the recommendation of its Legal, or Sixth, Committee to adopt the text, called the United Nations Declaration on Human Cloning. But some delegates said they opposed banning therapeutic cloning.The Declaration, negotiated by a Working Group last month, also banned “genetic engineering techniques that may be contrary to human dignity.” It called on States “to prevent the exploitation of women in the application of life sciences” and “to protect adequately human life in the application of life sciences.”Those who voted for the Declaration welcomed it as a clear expression of the ethical norms that should guide scientific research.South Africa, which abstained, said it understood therapeutic cloning to be aimed at protecting human life and not to be, therefore, inconsistent with the Declaration. It would continue to control therapeutic cloning strictly.The United States, which voted for the Declaration, said its Government’s position remained the same as it had recently expressed in the Sixth Committee last year.A US Government position paper said it supported a total ban on human cloning. It added, however, “Any ban on human cloning should explicitly state that it does not prohibit the development of cell and tissue-based therapies based on research involving cloning technology to produce DNA molecules, organs, plants, tissues, cells (other than human embryos), or animals (other than humans).”We believe that nations should actively pursue the potential medical and scientific benefits of these scientific methods, which have already enabled researchers to develop innovative drugs to treat diseases.”Some other countries, including the United Kingdom, the Russian Federation, France and India, regretted that there had been no consensus on banning reproductive cloning since they might want to keep their options open on therapeutic cloning.The British delegate, who voted against, said the Assembly had missed an opportunity to adopt a convention prohibiting reproductive cloning because of the intransigence of those who failed to recognize that other sovereign States might want to permit strictly controlled applications of therapeutic cloning.Echoing the views of a number of speakers, he said the Declaration was a non-binding political statement, which would not affect his country’s position on the issue.China, which voted against, said the prohibitions in the text might be “misunderstood” as covering all forms of cloning and the Declaration had failed to include the different positions of delegates on ethical, moral and religious concerns.It noted that it would maintain strict controls over therapeutic cloning. read more

Guy in Power Glove Buys First Nintendo 3DS in US

first_imgHe waited outside in the cold in New York’s Union Square, kept warm by an NES beanie and matching Nintendo varsity jacket–and a Power Glove covering his right hand. No one in the States was more ready to buy a Nintendo 3DS than Isiah Johnson–or, rather, Isaiah “Triforce” Johnson (we mentioned that he had his middle name changed to pay tribute to the Legend of Zelda, right?).To call Johnson a “super fan” seems a bit like underselling the man’s convictions. Johnson was also the first person in line in the US to pick up a Nintendo Wii, way back in 2006. Johnson had reportedly been waiting in line for five days for the new handheld console–though the police made him move along on Tuesday, the second day of his stationary pilgrimage. Naturally, he was back soon after.Nintendo eventually came to Johnson’s aid on Thursday, offering him a VIP pass to pick up the device.[Image via Wired]last_img read more

Geek Deals Lenovo G470 14inch laptop with Core i5 for 499

first_imgThis has been a unique product cycle for PCs and laptops in particular. Intel’s new processor platform is usually available at the beginning of the year and new models from manufacturers have typically all been released before mid-year. Unfortunately, due to a delay in Intel’s new Ivy Bridge platform, we’re just seeing the new Ivy Bridge laptops come out and there are still plenty of the last generation Sandy Bridge models around. This has created a lot of pressure on the manufacturers to be very aggressive with deals and we have seen some amazing pricing in the past few weeks.Today we have found the best deal yet on a Core i5 laptop. This G470 from Lenovo has a Sandy Bridge Core i5, 4GB RAM, and a 500GB hard drive for just $499 shipped. We have seen Core i5 laptops skirting near the $500 mark lately, but mostly they are stuck around $550.While Lenovo is the maker of the venerable ThinkPad laptops, this “Essentials” G570 doesn’t share much of the same pedigree. The keyboard is a step above the usual budget laptop and obviously the specs offer great value, but you won’t see the robust design of a ThinkPad or some of the more premium multimedia features of an IdeaPad.Instead, this is a plain old high-value laptop that should last for years to come thanks to its powerful processor. It even comes with a very respectable amount of RAM and hard drive space, something we don’t usually see in something so heavily discounted. This is a great bargain for anyone needing a basic system without all the compromises.Visit LogicBuy for the Lenovo G570 Core i5 laptop deallast_img read more

Gaz de schiste le groupe Total va déposer un recours contre labrogation

first_imgGaz de schiste : le groupe Total va déposer un recours contre l’abrogation de son permisSamedi, le groupe Total a annoncé son intention de déposer un recours contre l’abrogation de son permis d’exploration de gaz de schiste pour Montélimar dans le sud de la France. Le 3 octobre dernier, le gouvernement français a abrogé trois permis d’exploration qui avait été attribués pour le sud de la France à trois exploitants dont le groupe Total. A l’annonce de cette décision, ce dernier avait ainsi fortement réagi et avait laissé entendre qu’il ne se laisserait pas faire. Chose que le groupe a confirmé samedi, en annonçant par la voix de son PDG Christophe de Margerie, qu’il allait déposer un recours contre l’abrogation de son permis.À lire aussiFarouche opposition au gaz de schisteCelui-ci couvrait une vaste zone de 4.327 kilomètres située dans le nord de Montélimar jusqu’à Montpellier, sur plusieurs départements dont l’Ardèche, la Drôme et le Gard. “Nous avons respecté la loi et nous ne comprenons pas que la loi soit invoquée pour abroger notre permis”, a commenté M. de Margerie à l’occasion d’un forum organisé par le journal Libération à Lyon. Toutefois, il faudra attendre au plus tard jusqu’au 12 décembre pour savoir quelle forme prendra ce recours : le groupe pétrolier peut soit demander un recours de contentieux en justice, soit adresser un recours administratif aux ministères de l’Ecologie et de l’Energie. Pour l’heure, la ministre de l’Ecologie Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet ne juge pas les arguments avancés par Total suffisants. Selon elle, le groupe n’aurait pas “suffisamment explicité” par quelles autres méthodes, alternatives à la fracturation hydraulique interdite, il allait procéder à l’exploration de ces gaz non conventionnels.Le 28 novembre 2011 à 20:19 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Figo thinks Luka Modric deserved the Goal 50 award

first_imgPortuguese legend Luis Figo, confirmed that he believes Luka Modric completely deserves the Goal 50 Award for best player in the world.We recently reported that Goal.com, recently named Luka Modric as the best player in the world for the year 2018 and people like Luis Figo have supported the Croatian midfielder after receiving the honor.This may come as a surprise to a lot of people because the former Real Madrid player, is from Portugal and he isn’t supporting his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo, who also had a fantastic year after winning the Champions League for Real Madrid and scoring over 50 goals last season.But Figo has been doing this for the last couple of months, recently he also stated that Ronaldo Nazario is the better player out of the two forwards who bear the same name.Now he is talking about Luka Modric deserving the award and practically stating that he is the top candidate to win the Ballon d’Or in December.We have no idea if Figo has something against Cristiano Ronaldo, but the Juventus forward has never liked it when someone diminishes his fork in such fashion and much less from a fellow Portuguese like Luis.🏅 Luka Modric being named the best player in the world👀 Which players have impressed him in 2018✍ Eden Hazard to Real MadridWe spoke to Luis Figo! #Goal50 pic.twitter.com/FkHTo8Zyj2— Goal (@goal) November 14, 2018Figo who also played for Real Madrid and even won the Ballon d’Or himself in the year 2000, has been making the rounds for Goal as a spokesperson for the website and made a stern defense of the Croatian midfielder who reached a historic World Cup final with his national team last summer.Unfortunately for Luka, he wasn’t able to win the trophy after losing against France but this didn’t matter to the 42 voters from all editions on the publication when they cast their vote. They all agree with what Figo said this week about Modric.“Modric is one of those who certainly deserved an individual prize,” former Madrid star Figo said to Goal.“These awards are always subjective but, without a doubt, Modric has had a wonderful season. “He made the difference with his national team and with Real Madrid.”“For this reason, his prize is well deserved. I live in Madrid and although we did not play together, we attended the same places, knew the same people, also shared family moments together.”Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“He is a great person and it makes me happy that this year he has won so many individual trophies.”🏆 Ballon d’Or 2018 prediction:🥇 Cristiano #Ronaldo 🥈 Luka #Modric 🥉 Kylian #MbappéRETWEET if you think Ronaldo deserves to win the 2018 #BallondOr !!! pic.twitter.com/dEuZE0kRWD— Cristiano Ronaldo (@CRonaldoV2) November 10, 2018But the Ballon d’Or trophy will be a whole other story, France Football has been known for having a little more common sense when they deliver their prestigious Ballon d’Or award and this year should be no different.Modric did win the Champions League this year alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, but the individual honor is one that may likely go to a French player after the World Cup success that Les Bleus had during the competition played in Russia.The top candidates for the trophy are Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, and Kylian Mbappé might give us all an unexpected surprise and might squeeze into the final three-men list f players who complete the podium for this year’s Ballon d’Or.Modric winning the trophy after getting so many accolades already, doesn’t seem like the obvious choice as all the voters favor the other players who are mentioned here.Even Raphael Varane seems like a player who could appear on the final list instead of Luka Modric.French journalist Eric Mamruth has “leaked” what the Ballon d’Or Top 3 Podium will be…Luka ModricRaphael VaraneKylian Mbappe pic.twitter.com/txqIsPPGEn— RMadridHome (@RMadridHome_) November 11, 2018What do you think about Luis Figo’s defense for Luka Modric?

Rare military ceremony at JBER for Service Cross recipient

first_img14-year-old MacAiden Gallegos and his mother Amanda Marr receive the Distinguished Service Cross awarded posthumously to Staff Sergeant Justin Gallegos at JBER (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media, Anchorage)Anchorage’s Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson hosted a rare medal ceremony on Saturday, as an Army Staff Sergeant posthumously received the Distinguished Service Cross. It is the branch’s second highest military award recognizing valor, and the commendation took years to approve — even an Act of Congress — to bestow.The recognition comes from Sgt. Justin Gallegos’ role in the 2009 Battle of Kamdesh in Afghanistan, when a small group of Army soldiers held off an ambush by around 300 Taliban fighters. Gallegos was one of eight American service members killed in the battle. Twenty-seven others were wounded.Lieutenant Colonel Matt Meyer told the audience of more than 600 hundred troops, survivors, and family members that Gallegos earned the Service Cross for repeatedly risking his life to protect and rescue comrades.“He fired upon the enemy…with a machine gun until it was shot out of his hands,” Meyer said during remarks. “Justin’s reinforcement of the position held it just long enough for the remainder of the platoon to regroup. He bought them the time they needed at the cost of his own life.”Bestowing the Service Cross to Gallegos has been an uncommonly lengthy ordeal. Though the Battle of Kamdesh resulted in numerous awards for the soldiers that fought, including two Medals of Honor, it has taken years for Gallegos’ acts to be officially recognized through an upgrade from a Silver Star to the Service Cross.Sen. Lisa Murkowski said the process was so protracted in took on a life of its own in the capital.“Medal upgrades are not unheard of, but in fairness they are rare. They are very rare,” Murkoski said to the audience. “It’s said that they almost require an act of congress. Well, in this case it did require an act of Congress.”MacAiden Gallegos receives the Distinguished Service Cross awarded to his father during a ceremony at JBER (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media, Anchorage)An amendment was added to the most recent National Defense Authorization Act, a change that had been taken up as a cause by the late Sen. John McCain.Because a posthumous medal upgrade like this one is so uncommon, there was no formal protocol for the ceremony. Through a network of supporters, the 4th Brigade Combat Team 25th Infantry Division and U.S. Army Alaska stepped up to host the event on short notice. Several of Gallegos’s fellow service-members flew to Alaska and were in attendance.Gallegos’s widow Amanda Marr and their 14-year-old son, MacAidan, live in Sutton and received the Service Cross on Saturday. Marr says she’s touched by how the Alaska military units stepped in to honor her late husband as one of their own.“They just adopted him in every way you’d want,” Marr said after the ceremony. “Justin wasn’t their formal soldier and this was never his world, and they just took the time to have all these soldiers here on a Saturday morning to honor him, and that’s just mind-blowing.”Gallegos is the 16th recipient of the Service Cross from the U.S. war in Afghanistan.last_img read more

How does Rogue Ones new killer droid stand up against Star Wars

first_imgOur first look at the droid that Alan Tudyk will be playing in this December’s Rogue One: A Star Wars story has leaked out onto the internet this week. What was just a shadowy figure behind Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso in the first Rogue One trailer now has a designation call sign and a droid type to fit into Star Wars canon and — surprise! — he’s Imperial.In honor of K-250, our newest dangerous droid, let’s take a tour though the many not-nice bots that populate the Star Wars universe. And to make it even more confusing, let’s go in real-world chronological order, not canonical order.A New Hope: Death Star, RA-7 protocol droidThis guy is sometimes referred to as an “insect droid” because of his headpiece. The RA-7 model was canonically more popular during the Clone War era, but after the rise of the Empire many Imperial officers adopted RA-7 units as assistants and servants. There were so many on the Death Star, they came to be known as “Death Star Droids.” The most prominent RA-7 unit in the Star Wars plot is AP-5 who recently showed up in season two of Star Wars: Rebels and previously helped the Republic on Ryloth in Star Wars: Clone Wars. RA-7 units weren’t deadly on their own, but were conscripted into deadly service. Also: they look creepy.The Empire Strikes Back: Bounty hunter, IG-88To make a bounty hunter droid for The Empire Strikes Back, the Star Wars production crew took a prop from the Mos Eisley cantina set, painted it black, and made it the head of their new droid, IG-88. In the old Legends continuity, IG-88 had a rich history as a primary rival of Boba Fett, as well as appearing as a boss in the N64 game Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire. (He was much more important than that, but I lost a few afternoons trying to kill IG-88 with Dash Rendar in various ways). With the new Star Wars canon erasing the majority of his appearances, this IG model sentinel droid gone bad is now just one of the bounty hunters in Empire Strikes Back.Return of the Jedi: Supervisor and interrogator droid EV-9d9This droid, referred two as both “Eve” and “9d9” interchangeably, shows up in Jabba’s palace as some sort of leader of the droid lords. Assigning C-3PO and R2-D2 to various duties within Jabba’s palace, that falls under normal “supervisor” droid programming. The Eve we come across in Return of the Jedi, however, is a reprogrammed moisture vapor mechanic that now loves torture and dismemberment of other droids. That’s from the Wookiepedia, though Eve’s shop of droid torture that we see in the movie does support that reading. Droid on droid violence, man. It’s no good.Prequel trilogy: The battle droid, B1If anyone had a problem with Stormtroopers in the original trilogy being poor shots and generally inept Stormtroopers, they only needed to wait until 1999’s The Phantom Menace to see why the Empire decided to go with humans in bucket helmets instead of droids. Technically, battle droids were outlawed after the Clone Wars, but that didn’t stop them from being the primary lightsaber fodder for three movies. These droids are made to be transported, deployed and die in great numbers, so they’re not great for battle as individual units.Prequel trilogy: The super battle droid, B2For the second battle droid unit, the B2, the armor and firepower were given severe overhauls and upgrades. Unlike the B1, which was controlled from a central command system (how Anakin could shut them all down by blowing up the Trade Federation command ship), the B2 had limited independence and could operate without a constant signal. Unfortunately, they weren’t given a protocol droid’s processing power, so they’re just dumb brutes. Like all droid army units, the strength of battle droids is in numbers.Prequel trilogy: Destroyer droid, DroidekaThe Droidekas seem intimidating when they first appear in The Phantom Menace to roll around and blast at Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Compared to the other BD models, they are much more deadly. They can operate autonomously, though they don’t have a lot of processing power. Not only can the droids roll at speeds up to 46 miles per hour, but when they unroll they have blasters and a powerful shield that can deflect most blasters and side-arms. They are Clone Era droids, though, so they have weaknesses like not being able to see behind them and letting stationary objects (like mines) through their shields.Knights of the Old Republic: Assassin droid, HK-47The HK in the designation stands for “hunter killer,” and unlike the droids from the prequel trilogy, the HK units were given the minds of protocol droids with the programming of assassins. The HK-24 model was popular during the Mandalorian War, almost 4,000 years before A New Hope. After the war, Darth Revan created a custom HK droid called HK-47, the sassy, meatbag-hating member of your party in the Knights of the Old Republic video game. Everything from KOTOR has become non-canon, but for a brief moment, HK-47 had an Expanded Universe story where he was resurrected during the events of the original trilogy and tried to build a new droid army. He remains the best.Star Wars: Aftermath: Modified battle droid, Mr. BonesIf you read Chuck Wendig’s novel that takes place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, you were introduced to a young boy named Temmin Wexly (who would grow into “Snap” Wexley, Resistance Pilot, played by Greg Grunberg in TFA). The young Wexly found a scrapped B1 battle droid and proceeded to modify it. Half of its head has been replaced with a telescoping red eye, and the tip of the remaining half has been filed into a beak like on a bird of prey. Young Snap painted the whole thing black and red and strapped animal bones to the body, as well as replacing one arm with a vibroblade. Temmin calls him “Mr. Bones,” and he’s the best battle droid in canon. The B1’s limited processing power means Mr. Bones is a little insane, gleefully humming or buzzing a song to himself as he attacks anyone Temmin tells him to.Marvel’s Darth Vader comics: Evil C-3PO and R2-D2, 000 and BT-1Don’t worry, HK-47 fans, the new Star Wars canon has you covered in the Darth Vader comics. In Marvel’s Darth Vader #3, we are introduced to Triple Zero (000) and BT-1, the evil parallels to C-3PO and R2-D2. Triple Zero is a protocol droid who has been painted black and knows as many torture techniques as C-3PO knows languages, and his companion BT-1 is like if R2-D2 had weapons built into him instead of various gadgets. They’re a dark comedy duo, as 000 is always looking forward to the next time he can torture a human to death.Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Enforcer droid, K-250The newest addition to the Star Wars danger droid canon, is K-250, an enforcer droid who is played by Alan Tudyk in the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Design wise, K-250’s body looks like a B2 battle droid mixed with some of the custom design on a Stormtrooper. They share the same back-piece design (though who knows what it is). The hips have been made thicker and have been reinforced, probably so this droid can run and jump unlike his B2 forefathers. The head looks similar to an EV-9d9 head, but a bit more streamlined and with more defined eyes in a humanoid placement. The small peeks we’ve seen of K-250 thus far don’t say anything about how autonomous it is, but considering this is an Imperial droid on the side of the Rebels, expect a free-thinking droid or a reprogrammed blunt object. It’s going to be one or the other.Find out why K-250 is on the Rebel’s side this December.last_img read more

Environmental noise found to enhance the transport of energy across a line

first_img Citation: Environmental noise found to enhance the transport of energy across a line of ions (2019, February 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-02-environmental-noise-energy-line-ions.html Scientists turn to the quantum realm to improve energy transportation More information: Christine Maier et al. Environment-Assisted Quantum Transport in a 10-qubit Network, Physical Review Letters (2019). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.122.050501arXiv:1809.07680v1 arxiv.org/abs/1809.07680 AbstractThe way in which energy is transported through an interacting system governs fundamental properties in many areas of physics, chemistry, and biology. Remarkably, environmental noise can enhance the transport, an effect known as environment-assisted quantum transport (ENAQT). In this paper, we study ENAQT in a network of coupled spins subject to engineered static disorder and temporally varying dephasing noise. The interacting spin network is realized in a chain of trapped atomic ions and energy transport is represented by the transfer of electronic excitation between ions. With increasing noise strength, we observe a crossover from coherent dynamics and Anderson localization to ENAQT and finally a suppression of transport due to the quantum Zeno effect. We found that in the regime where ENAQT is most effective the transport is mainly diffusive, displaying coherences only at very short times. Further, we show that dephasing characterized by non-Markovian noise can maintain coherences longer than white noise dephasing, with a strong influence of the spectral structure on the transport effciency. Our approach represents a controlled and scalable way to investigate quantum transport in many-body networks under static disorder and dynamic noise. A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in Austria and Germany has shown that introducing environmental noise to a line of ions can lead to enhanced transport of energy across them. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the researchers describe their experiments and why they believe their findings will be helpful to other researchers. Explore further Journal information: Physical Review Letterscenter_img Prior research has shown that when electrons move through conductive material, the means by which they do so can be described by quantum mechanics equations. But in the real world, such movement can be hindered by interference due to noise in the environment, leading to suppression of the transport energy. Prior research has also shown that electricity moving through a material can be described as a wave—if such waves remain in step, they are described as being coherent. But such waves can be disturbed by noise or defects in an atomic lattice, leading to suppression of flow. Such suppression at a given location is known as an Anderson localization. In this new effort, the researchers have shown that Anderson localizations can be overcome through the use of environmental noise.The work consisted of isolating 10 calcium ions and holding them in space as a joined line—a one-dimensional crystal. Lasers were used to switch the ions between states, and energy was introduced to the ion line using laser pulses. This setup allowed them to watch as energy moved along the line of ions from one end to the other. Anderson localizations were introduced by firing individual lasers at each of the ions—the energy from the lasers resulted in ions with different intensities. With a degree of disorder in place, the team then created noise by randomly changing the intensity of the beams fired at the individual ions. This resulted in frequency wobble. And it was that wobble that the team found allowed the movement of energy between the ions to overcome the Anderson localizations.The researchers note that there was a limit on the system—too much noise, and energy transport once again slowed due to the quantum Zeno effect. They claim that their system could prove useful to other researchers because it allows for studying quantum effects in an artificially engineered quantum system. © 2019 Science X Network This document is subject to copyright.

January 29, 2018 — The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) announced that ImageGuideEcho, a module under the ImageGuide Registry platform, is now open to enrollment for U.S.-based physicians. ImageGuideEcho is the first registry, according to ASE, exclusively devoted to measuring quality in cardiovascular ultrasound. Its mission is to provide the framework necessary to support a community of cardiology labs committed to patient-centered imaging, patient safety, outcome improvement, practice transformation, and innovation through ongoing data collection and quality improvement.ASE President Vera Rigolin, M.D., FASE said, “The launch of ImageGuideEcho reflects a key society objective years in the making, and we are thrilled to begin its realization. We look forward to the continued development and growth of the registry as ASE puts echo data into the hands of its physicians with the ultimate goal of improving quality of care for our patients.”Participation in the ImageGuide Registry will assist cardiovascular imaging physicians with satisfying Medicare reporting requirements under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) legislation. Furthermore, targeted quality measures assessing echo-specific metrics allow echo labs to receive valuable feedback unique to the modality. Through examination of these quality metrics, imaging physicians have the capability to both inform healthcare decisions and quantify quality improvement in a way that has not previously been undertaken.Sherif Nagueh, M.D., FASE, medical director of the Echocardiography Laboratory at Houston Methodist Hospital and chair of the ASE Registry Committee, stated, “Lab managers can look to this registry to provide quality feedback metrics per individual physician and across the entire lab in comparison to national standards. This feedback loop is essential to continual quality improvement. The volume of patient encounters expected in this registry will also be an advantage for future imaging research efforts.”ASE is partnering with Gold Level supporter Lantheus Medical Imaging and Silver Level supporters Bracco Diagnostics Inc. and the National Board of Echocardiography within the ImageGuideEcho module.ImageGuideEcho is a free member benefit for U.S.-based physicians in 2018. ASE, with its partners support, is underwriting the cost of the enrollment to benefit the field of cardiovascular ultrasound.For more information: www.asecho.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 31, 2019 Studies Confirm Clinical Value of ShearWave Elastography for Liver Fibrosis Evaluation SuperSonic Imagine announced the publication of the results of its prospective multicentric clinical study conducted in… read more Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
