45nm and Beyond

first_imgTechnology moves at such a rapid pace – it can often be mind-boggling. Even working directly with the product teams at Intel, I sometimes have difficulty keeping pace. The good news is that there is a tremendous opportunity today to be captured thanks to this rapid innovation, as well as a steady stream of advanced technology that IT can use to better support business and gain a competitive advantage. Recently I was interviewed by Tim Phillips from the Register about the current 45nm Quad-Core Intel Xeon products and the next generation Intel platforms based on the Nehalem processor. A few years back, Intel fundamentally changed the way we design and develop our underlying micro-processor technology. We streamlined our innovation and accelerated it’s pace. Internally, we call this new model Tick-Tock. I like to call it shrink and innovate. A “Tick” is a manufacturing process shrink that delivers smaller silicon with higher speeds, more transistors and lower power consumption (example: moving from 65nm to 45nm process technology). The 45nm quad-core xeon processors (available since Nov ’07) utilize unique materials (a high-k, dielectric) that are delivering industry leading performance / watt as measured by the industry’s first and only standard benchmark, SPECPower A “Tock” represents a more extensive architectural innovation (ex. Intel Core Microarchitecture) introducing new micro-architecture features and functionality fully utilizing the higher transistor count set up by the shrink. For Intel Xeon-based servers, the next “tock” is Nehalem. In addition to the new micro-architecture based on 45nm, a system re-design will incorporate next generation memory, I/O and virtualization technology for high performance, high bandwidth solutions compatible with today’s leading software solutionsListen to my podcast interview to learn more about the benefits of using today’s products and the timing of next generation Intel technology featuring Nehalem. Is this information useful to you? If so … how? Have any questions? I’d be happy to hear from you. Chris

India-Pakistan Asia Cup encounter: On the lookout for match-fixers

first_imgEnhanced security, including policemen from the detective branch who also keep an eye on potential match-fixers, and some ultra-modern recently-imported equipment like an expensive car scanner, was put in place for the high-profile India-Pakistan Asia Cup encounter in Dhaka on Sunday.Apart from over 1,500 police personnel, armoured personnel carriers (APC), prisoner vans and close-circuit television cameras were used as part of an elaborate security blanket for the day-night game at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.Imtiaz Ahmed, deputy police of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), said that policemen in plainclothes were roaming around the stadium, besides other parts of the city, to check potential match-fixers.”Tackling match-fixing is not part of our job; it falls under the detective branch of the DMP that is directly under the police commissioner. Teams of the detective branch are roaming around the stadium and elsewhere in the city, and more than 100 personnel in disguise are roaming around the stadium,” Ahmed told Mail Today during the match.”During the Bangladesh Premier League held here recently at this stadium, a man was arrested for his involvement in match-fixing. So far, we haven’t heard anything on match-fixing during the Asia Cup. So far so good,” he said.Ahmed said that additional security was in place for the India-Pakistan game that was watched by around 26,000 spectators at the stadium, including many celebrities and dignitaries from India and other parts of the world.”We have broadly used the 2011 World Cup planning and design for strategic points around the stadium.advertisement”Especially for this match, we have put in 10 check posts around the stadium in the Mirpur area, besides five traffic diversions – they were not there for the earlier Asia Cup matches – and there are more personnel on duty to maintain law and order during this game,” Ahmed said.”This time we have two APCs, three prisoner vans as part of our preparedness for tackling rioting, and one brand new imported car scanner that cost us 13 crore taka,” he informed. “Besides 800 policemen and policewomen inside the stadium, if we take into account the personnel on duty surrounding the stadium, the number would cross 1,500. We also have a water cannon vehicle ready for this game.”last_img read more

Duleep Trophy not scrapped, will resume from 2016-17 season: BCCI

first_imgThe Indian cricket board on Tuesday clarified that the prestigious Duleep Trophy has been shelved, and that the tournament remains an “integral part of the domestic calendar.” The tournament will eventually be the curtain-raiser of the 2016-17 domestic season.Several reports on Monday suggested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has scrapped the traditional tournament for good from the upcoming 2015-16 domestic season.”BCCI wishes to clarify that this is incorrect and reiterate that the Duleep Trophy remains an integral part of the domestic calendar,” the board said in a release on Tuesday.”India will play 12 Test matches at home in the next season (2016-17) between October-March. Duleep trophy will be the curtain-raiser for the forthcoming domestic season and provide a platform for the players to stake a claim.”The BCCI on Monday revealed its plans to conduct 900 matches in six months during its 2015-16 domestic season, which will start from October this year and end in March 2016. The 2015-16 domestic fixtures list, released on Monday, did not have a place for the Duleep Trophy.Thed BCCI decided not to hold the Duleep Trophy in the 2015-16 season in order to accommodate the 2016 World Twenty20 championship, which will be played in India after the completion of the domestic season in March 2016.”This year’s schedule has been planned to ensure that prominence for various domestic competitions is relevant to India’s international calendar and in particular with India hosting the ICC World Twenty20,” the release said.”BCCI wishes to reaffirm its keenness to add more relevance to the Duleep Trophy in the coming years and to prepare our cricketers for Test cricket.”advertisementlast_img read more

Eyes down for the run-in as F1’s season reconvenes at Spa

first_imgMost important, Vettel has extracted the maximum from his ride and it is a credit to his skill to have done so. Ferrari announced this week that they have re-signed Kimi Raikkonen for 2018, some reward for the Finn after the team have made it clear they are backing Vettel over him for the championship, as was evidenced at Monaco and Budapest.Nonetheless Vettel has still made the most of it given that the Ferrari do not have the raw pace of Mercedes. He also has four second places and, barring his moment of arrant stupidity when driving into Hamilton in Baku, the performances have been everything that would be expected from a four-times world champion.Hamilton, in contrast, has been riding what he described as a rollercoaster. The Mercedes has proved tricky to set up and the team have acknowledged their car has been a “diva”. But when the British driver has put it in the sweet spot he has been imperious and untouchable, as in Canada and at Silverstone. He has been let down by being out of touch on circuits that do not suit it – most notably Sochi and Monaco. He and the team have dropped points where Vettel and Ferrari have minimised their losses and thereby secured their slender advantage.Vettel may not have it for long, however, and for all that he is in second, Hamilton at this stage might be considered the more confident of the two drivers.What has made this season so fascinating is how the pendulum has swung between the pair. Ferrari had the upper hand at the last round in Hungary but heading into Spa – a circuit at which Mercerdes first won in 1955, through Juan Manuel Fangio – the German team will expect to be back on the front foot. They identified after Monaco the causes behind the difficulties in setting up the car and have made major strides to solve them. Equally the latest iteration of their power unit is a considerable step forward and they are able to run it at the highest output for longer. Sportblog Read more Sebastian Vettel Formula One 2017 The Recap: sign up for the best of the Guardian’s sport coverage This advantage has been proved repeatedly in qualifying, with the team scoring eight of 11 poles. Ferrari have been able to take the top spot only at the tracks where their cars’ cornering negates the power deficit – Russia, Monte Carlo and Hungary. In race pace, speed traps show Mercedes have a clear lead in the second half of straights and this could be crucial.As they have done for the past three years, Mercedes have built a car to be optimal at the greatest number of circuits, which means favouring a high-speed configuration at the expense of being less competitive on the low-speed, heavy-cornering circuits. The results have borne this out and Ferrari’s dominance in Budapest proved they remain ahead through the twisty stuff.In Hamilton’s favour, however, is that the majority of races remaining favour Mercedes. Spa, with its sweeping high speeds in the Ardennes this weekend, is one of them, as will be the next round at Monza. Suzuka will favour Mercedes, as likely will the Circuit of the Americas. Indeed of the nine, Ferrari may well only have a real advantage at Singapore. Worse still, Vettel has already used four turbo chargers, the maximum before taking a grid penalty. It is not out of the question that the Scuderia may opt to take a raft of new components at Spa and take the penalty en masse at a track where they can fight back, as Hamilton did last year.More than mechanical form will play a part in this title fight, however. Ferrari have proved feisty with strategy and are clearly ready to sacrifice Raikkonen for Vettel – a lead driver decision that Mercedes have yet to make. Hamilton ceded three points by returning third place to Valtteri Bottas in Budapest and the team’s executive director, Toto Wolff, has acknowledged that allowing their drivers to continue to race may ultimately prove costly.Yet it might also prove to be key. Bottas, who has two wins and eight podium places, has proved more than adept at making the most of weekends when Hamilton has been off the boil. The British driver’s sportsmanlike gesture in Hungary will not have gone unnoticed either. Raikkonen, in contrast, has been far less threatening. Should the season reach nip and tuck at its end, Hamilton will be far more confident his team-mate can deny Vettel points than vice versa and if Bottas is required to play the team game he has been given every reason to be amenable.The title will not be decided at Spa but it will doubtless see the tension ratcheting up in what promises to be a roaring run-in. This rollercoaster ride is far from over.

Where better to reignite the fight than the magnificent challenge of Spa, where Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel will recommence a contest that is likely to go down to the last race?Vettel has the advantage, leading Hamilton by 14 points, but on race wins the pair are even with four apiece. Vettel deserves his lead. He is always at his strongest when he is confident in the machinery around him and Ferrari have given him a car he can work to maximum effect. It has proved quick out of the box on Fridays, forgiving and easy to set up, while the German has revelled in how hard he can push it through the corners.

It is very encouraging for us and gives us the possibility to pursue more cases in the future.”The AIU said it was awaiting access to underlying analytical data from the Moscow laboratory, which the World Anti-Doping Agency recently obtained and is in the process of authenticating, before deciding on the need for any “further investigation that may be required in order to pursue more cases”.Meanwhile the Wada director general Oliver Niggli welcomed the news as a victory for clean sport. “This should serve to reassure athletes that a lot of work is being conducted behind the scenes by various organisations that are committed to ensure that justice is rendered,” he added. “It reinforces the importance of ensuring that due process is followed and that evidence is carefully presented.”If Ukhov is stripped of the Olympic gold medal he won at London 2012, it will go to the American Erik Kynard and Qatar’s Mutaz Essa Barshim, Canada’s Derek Drouin and Grabarz, who shared bronze, will get silver.

Maybe you saw it on television, or maybe you’re living in a city where fast-casual poke joints are opening up every other day (you wouldn’t be far off on that, as there are now almost 700 poke restaurants on the mainland alone).A fish salad made from raw tuna (though it is also popular with octopus) poke was originally a dish fisherman made with the leftovers from their daily catch. The fish would be marinated and mixed with ingredients like seaweed, limu (the Hawaiian word for algae), and candlenut (also known as Kukui nut). Depending on who was making it, you might also get green onions, Maui onions, or furikake (a mixture of sesame seeds, dried seaweed, and dried fish).If you’re not a fish fan, you’re probably over this recipe already, but if you like fish — especially sushi — you’re probably at the point where you’re looking at your watch to see if it’s time for your next meal. If it is, you should make it poke. (If it isn’t, you should go out and get the ingredients so that you’ll be ready for the next meal to be poke.)The great thing about poke — aside from the relative ease to find it in most major cities now — is that it is an incredibly quick and easy dish anyone can make at home. Literally, all you have to do after you’ve made the marinade is chop the ingredients, make some rice, and boom. Done.To get the best poke recipe to make at home, we asked Takanori Akiyama of Young Street Poke in New York City for a quick, easy, and delicious option.

Province Invests in Innovation at Nova Scotia Paper Plant

first_imgThe province is investing in the sustainability of a major employer and exporter in Nova Scotia’s paper products industry. Bowater Mersey Paper Company Ltd. is receiving $2.5 million to support the addition of book-grade paper to its manufacturing process. Book-grade paper, used mainly in the printing of paperback books, requires more demanding quality standards than those for newsprint. The book-grade paper market tends to have more stable demand and pricing trends. Economic and Rural Development is supporting the company’s diversification plan through the Community Development Trust Fund. The $34.9-million fund was established in 2008 by the federal government to help communities and sectors experiencing economic challenges. “Bowater Mersey is managing through difficult economic times in this industry by finding innovative ways to reduce operating costs, improve productivity, and develop new product lines and markets,” said Minister of Economic and Rural Development Percy Paris. “The fundamentals of this company are solid and, along with the company, its employees, suppliers, and customers and various governments, we want this mill to continue to be a viable part of our economy and return to higher employment levels as the economy rebounds in the coming months.” Bowater Mersey employs about 500 full-time employees. Its operations include the newsprint mill near Liverpool, Queens Co. the Oakhill sawmill near Bridgewater; the Mersey Woodlands forest management group and the Brooklyn Power Corporation in Brooklyn, Queens Co. Indirectly, the company supports the jobs of more than 1,000 people in forest management and harvesting operations, private sawmills, trucking firms and other suppliers. Its products are exported around the world. Bowater Mersey has invested more than $7 million toward the product diversification project, including new manufacturing processes, technology and equipment. The company has already marketed its book-grade paper in the United Kingdom and is seeking opportunities to supply European and Asian pressrooms. Book-grade paper is shipped by vessel from the port at the Bowater Mersey mill as well as by container through the Port of Halifax. Bowater Mersey continues to work closely within the industry to develop certified forest management practices. The co-generation plan produces electricity under contract to Nova Scotia Power Inc., which provides a stable steam supply to the newsprint plant. The priorities of the Community Development Trust Fund are to enhance sustainable prosperity, diversify economic and trade opportunities, improve productivity, innovation and training, assist communities with transition planning, and help workers facing adjustment challenges. More information on the Community Development Trust Fund in Nova Scotia is available at www.gov.ns.ca/econ/cdtrust .last_img read more

13 drug companies comply with UN health agency call against malaria pill

The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) announced today that 13 pharmaceutical companies have agreed to comply with its recommendation to phase out single-drug artemisinin medicines for oral treatment of malaria, as the agency says its use hastens the development of resistance to the drug in malaria parasites. The companies will now focus their marketing efforts for malaria primarily on Artemisinin Combination Therapies (ACTs), in line with WHO recommendations, because when used with other anti-malarial drugs, artemesin is nearly 95 per cent effective in curing uncomplicated malaria and the parasite is highly unlikely to become drug resistant.“In the last three months, thanks to determined follow-up, we have seen significant progress towards curbing the supply of inappropriate and clinically unsound malaria treatments,” said Dr. Lee Jong-wook, WHO Director-General. “WHO now calls for a complete transition to provision of WHO-recommended combination therapies, in order to preserve the efficacy of these life-saving treatments.” In January, WHO appealed to all companies to stop marketing single-drug artemisin treatment, or monotherapy, and to re-direct their production efforts towards ACTs. Following this appeal, an additional 23 companies were identified and informed of WHO’s recommendation and 13 said they would comply with the guidance.Additional companies have also said they are willing to collaborate with WHO on this and the Agency has also called on national drug regulatory authorities in malaria-endemic countries to prohibit marketing of oral artemisinin monotherapies. Since January, 13 countries have announced that they will withdraw marketing authorization for these drugs, and three have started undertaking regulatory measures to do so. “To eliminate demand for single-drug artemisinin pills, national governments have a critical role to play,” said Dr. Arata Kochi, director of the WHO Global Malaria Programme. “We are monitoring this situation closely, and we will work with authorities and health professionals in countries to support the use of quality ACTs in line with the WHO guidelines.” read more

Construction permits drop volume rises

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Fewer construction permits were issued in September year-on-year, but data released this week by the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) also showed that volume was up, pointing to the fact that those properties will be larger than average.The official number of construction licences issued in September reached 1,102 for a total of 206,700 square metres in surface area and 858,100 cubic metres in volume. Compared with the same month in 2013 there was an 11.2 per cent decline in the number of permits and a 2.6 per cent drop in surface area, but also a 6.7 per cent increase in volume.On a 12-month basis, from October 2013 to September 2014, total construction activity amounted to 14,249 licenses, concerning 2,724,000 sq.m. and 11,650,200 c.m. This meant a 13.3 per cent drop in the number of permits, an 11.8 per cent reduction in surface area and a 5 per cent decline in volume.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

He did it a couple of years ago against Liverpool, and he lost his man time after time. I don’t think he’s disciplined enough for it. It’s ill-discipline and he’s cost his team.”Graeme Souness added: “He’s having a conversation with Lindelof, and then he looks away at the vital moment and is still trying to talk to him.“Rudiger gets the yard, and that’s all you need.

KSRM News Director Assaulted At Rally In Soldotna

first_imgWilliams while covering Tuesday’s rally at the intersection of the Sterling Highway and Kenai Spur Highway in Soldotna, was struck by an unknown object thrown from a passing vehicle traveling toward the intersection, the location approximately in-front-of the Ido Restaurant. Williams was conducting interviews with both groups, divided on either side of the highway; one asking to stop the ban on abortions, and the other asking to pray to end abortion. Shortly after the assault Williams took to social media to describe the incident: “So, I’m in Soldotna and I just covered a pro and anti abortion rally. Unfortunately, some people were very expressive and decided to throw things out of a car while I was on the pro abortion side conducting interviews. Luckily no one else was hurt, and I am still not sure what they threw.”  Charges have been filed with the Soldotna Police Department. This is a developing story.

Mukesh and Anil Ambani A storied billionaire sibling rivalry is finally ending

first_imgMukesh Ambani (left) with brother Anil Ambani.ReutersOne of the biggest sibling rivalries in the corporate world has apparently come to end with Anil Ambani publicly thanking elder brother Mukesh and his wife Nita for throwing a lifeline at the last minute that saved him from going to jail in the Ericsson case. The nearly two-decades-long struggle for one-upmanship between the billionaire brothers started when their rags-to-riches father Dhirubhai Ambani died without leaving a will in 2002.When India’s biggest ever corporate satrap died, he left his gigantic company in the hands of his sons Mukesh and Anil, whose personalities were a study in contrast. A long saga of internal conflicts wracked the company for years, with bad blood between the brothers occasionally spilling out in the open. After years of pushing and shoving, which was worsened by the coteries of professional managers loyal to each of the Reliance scions, the matriarch, Kokilaben Ambani, stepped in and brokered a truce between them in 2005.The formal division of the empire left both Mukesh and Anil evenly rich but their onward journey was destined to witness different tones of success and fortune. Mukesh got control of the flagship oil-refining and petrochemicals business, while Anil got the newer businesses such as power generation, financial services and telecom.Quirks of destinyIn one of the quirks of destiny, while the wealth of Mukesh grew exponentially, Anil saw his riches dwindling over the years. His ranking in the international rich list suffered first and what we saw next was that he slipped horrendously in the India rich list as well.Anil was still leading a charge in the new businesses of the Reliance empire but Mukesh saw future threats in his core business, with crude oil prices climbing, threatening to erode refiners’ margins. He waited for the end of a non-compete clause with the brother, which had kept him out of the telecom arena. When the agreement was scrapped in 2010, Mukesh quickly returned, pumping in more than $34 billion over the next seven years to build a speedier 4G wireless network for his Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd.And thus, finally, the killer blow to Anil’s business empire came from Mukesh himself. The elder Ambani’s re-entry into the telecommunications business with Reliance Jio Infocomm served a grim notice not just to Anil’s Reliance Communications, but a lot of other competitors as well. His nationwide 4G network, which debuted with free services in 2016, disrupted the business, forcing rivals including RCom to bleed, merge or exit the industry.”It was a very, very big bet,” said James Crabtree, a professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore. Jio also gave Mukesh the chance to forge his own legacy beyond the shadow of the businesses he had inherited. “Jio in that sense was an all-in bet,” he added.Like his elder brother, Anil had also invested billions to expand his portfolio, but the younger brother didn’t have a cash cow like the oil refinery to finance growth. Instead, like other businesses in India and elsewhere, many of his firms increased debt. The Jio onslaught was the proverbial last straw on the camel’s back. The already indebted Anil had to seek ways to shed assets in order to service debts and pay them off eventually. Under pressure from lenders, Anil broached selling RCom assets to quell investor concerns and deal with a sinking stock. The shares of Reliance Naval & Engineering Ltd saw the worst decline last year, losing 75 percent. Bought in 2015 as part of his bet on defence as the next engine of growth, the warship and submarine maker has proven hard to turn around.First signs of a thaw in sibling rivalryAnother of Anil’s defence firms also came under scrutiny over the 2016 negotiations between France and India for the $8.7 billion deal for Rafale warplanes from France. In a statement on August 20, Anil and his firm denied allegations from opposition lawmakers that the Rafale deal unfairly benefited his firm, saying the lawmakers had been “misinformed, misdirected and misled by malicious vested interests and corporate rivals.”Amid all this crisis, the first signs of a thaw in the sibling rivalry emerged when Mukesh agreed to buy the wireless assets of RCom for a whopping Rs 18000 crore, a deal that would help Anil lighten his debt load and stay in the business. However, it was not meant to be a fairytale ending for Anil Ambani. The wireless asset deal went into a tailspin after the DoT insisted it that its liabilities would be passed off onto the buyer, who would have to pay off the creditors and associates.Meanwhile, Swedish telecom equipment maker Ericsson was tightening the noose around the neck of the fallen business magnate. Back in 2017, Ericsson moved a bankruptcy court alleging it had not been paid dues of around Rs 1,600 crore after signing a deal in 2013 to operate, maintain and manage the telco’s nationwide network. It extracted a personal guarantee from Ambani to pay the dues. Ericsson later earned a verdict from the Supreme Court that signalled immediate crisis for cash-strapped Anil Ambani. The court ordered Anil and two RCom directors to clear Ericsson’s dues worth Rs 4.5 billion within four weeks or face a three-month jail term for contempt of court. The last date of making the payment was March 19.With the wireless sale deal stalled, Anil frantically sought other ways to pay off the debt and escape impending jail term. But he suffered another blow when National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) refused to free up to Rs 260 crore tax refunds withheld by lenders saying it did not have jurisdiction to do so. Banks had opposed the release of the tax refunds. Anil was now looking down the barrel.Dramatic turnHowever, a day before the expiry of the apex court’s deadline, RCom said it paid a whopping Rs 458.77 crore to Ericsson, clearing outstanding dues. The money came from Mukesh. A long-standing rivalry apparently ended with the victor bailing out the one who fell.Anil then profusely thanked Mukesh, his brother and Asia’s richest man, and his wife Nita, for extending timely support. “My sincere and heartfelt thanks to my respected elder brother, Mukesh, and Nita, for standing by me during these trying times, and demonstrating the importance of staying true to our strong family values by extending this timely support,” Anil said in a statement issued by Reliance Communications. “I and my family are grateful we have moved beyond the past, and are deeply grateful and touched with this gesture.” Close IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPauseMute0:05/0:51Loaded: 0%0:05Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE-0:46?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Deadly Class Welcomes Students to Kings Dominion at SDCC

first_imgStay on target With the line-up of comic to screen adaptations, we thought we couldn’t be any more excited. But then, they announced Deadly Class was coming to Syfy, and our entire world collectively exploded.Fans got their first official look at the trailer for Deadly Class back in May 2018, but this panel is so much closer to when we finally get to see this class up and running. Lucky fans sat in the Indigo Ballroom and watched the first 15 mins of the first episode. According to them, and jealousy from us, it looks REAL good.Deadly Class is written by Rick Remender, with illustrations by Wesley Craig, colors by Lee Loughridge and letters by Rus Wooton. Deadly Class chronicles the story of Marcus, an outcast whose recruited into a school full of assassins. The comic isn’t only about that though. It also backdrops the tale of the ups and downs of growing up. Mixed to a killer soundtrack, action galore and some utter badassery that will leave you WISHING you went to King’s Dominion.The newest series coming to us from Anthony and Joe Russo, directors of Avengers: Infinity War (You guys remember! That little movie that made us feel things again?). Sadly they couldn’t be in attendance, but there are some slick names on that panel. Rick Remender (W) and Wes Craig (A) are present at the panel with co-showrunners Miles Orion Feldsott and Mick Betancourt in attendance.Deadly Class (the series) will be set in 1987. Marcus is a street kid looking for a way out until he’s recruited into the deadly assassin high school where he finds out there’s so much more to life than he expected. The cast includes Benjamin Wadsworth, who plays the lead, Marcus. Benedict Wong (Master Lin), Lana Condor (the baddest of asses Saya Kuroki), Luke Tennie (Willie Lewis) and María Gabriela De Faría, playing Maria Salazar. The entire cast was in attendance at the panel excited, anxious and passionate about their characters.Like most adaptations, there’s a little hesitation there. It’s scary seeing something you love on the screen. With Rick Remender at the helm, he says the show will stay faithful to the comic. He will act as one of the leading writers for the series while also being a co-showrunner. He says “I didn’t want to do it unless it was true to the story we set out to tell. We wouldn’t have agreed to do it if we couldn’t stay true to the integrity of the book.” He also says that within the show, it’s basically straight from the comic. “There hasn’t been a voice that wanted to change it.”One thing that will be of vital importance to the show is the music involved. Music plays a BIG part in the comic. Remender doesn’t forget that or want to change that, in fact, he’s kind of gearing on it. “Generation X has been forgotten and music needs a little infusion of what we were snorting back then.” Deadly Class feels like it will take fans on one hell of a ride which we want anyway. The comic series holds no punches so why should the show.Speaking of, before you set eyes on the Syfy series, you can check out the series on Comixology now and binge the entire thing to get you prepared before next year. There’s no set date for when classes will begin at King’s Dominio. We’ll be sure to get ready with notebooks in hand.

Graph States and Entanglement

first_img Citation: Graph States and Entanglement (2006, October 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2006-10-graph-states-entanglement.html “Here we want to find something to improve the scaling,” he tells PhysOrg.com. “If we start with realistic optical elements, one can realize a many-body state called a graph state.” It is this preparation of a graph state that Duan and Bodiya address in their Letter, titled “Scalable Generation of Graph-State Entanglement Through Realistic Linear Optics,” published October 3.Graph states make up an important class of entangled states in physics. They are described in terms of a variety of graph structures that grow with system size. “For graph states that look like a tree,” explains Duan, “we can generate them efficiently with realistic linear optics. We have a method that can help find efficient scaling with these states.” There are several applications for graph states. Indeed, entangled states are the basis of the current push toward realizing quantum information processing. “Quantum computation or other information protocols,” says Duan, are among the most popular applications for graph states. Other applications using graph states include quantum error correction, quantum entanglement, and multi-partite quantum communication. Graph states can also aid in the study of issues of a more foundational nature in quantum mechanics — issues such as decoherence and quantum non-locality.Because photons are a precious resource in current experimental study, it can be inefficient to waste them. Duan and Bodiya suggest a way to use a polarization beam splitter in order to create a gate for generating graph states. In this model, photons are not wasted in gate operation, and so the model is more efficient. Further efficiency is achieved by the fact that Duan and Bodiya propose a method for scalable generation of many-qubit entanglement. Their theory posits that the overall scaling is efficient, even when photon source and detectors have moderate efficiencies as in current experiments. This is a departure from other known theories, in which to have an overall efficient scaling, photon sources and detectors must have very high efficiencies, presenting difficulties for experiments. And, the larger the system is, the greater effect for this improvement in scaling. “This overcomes the problems with getting more and more photons entangled,” claims Duan.Another benefit of the system proposed by Duan and Bodiya is the fact that it makes use of linear optical technologies that are realistic. “This is based on the current technology,” says Duan. “Some things might be needed to put the technology together in a couple of years, but it is something that is realistic.” Duan admits that this idea is theoretical at this stage. But he insists that working on getting his and Bodiya’s version of scalable graph state generation would overcome problems. “This is a new idea, and hopefully some experimentalists will go in this direction. Many groups want to see more photons entangled, and this is a way to that goal.”Citation: Scalable Generation of Graph-State Entanglement Through Realistic Linear Optics, T. P. Bodiya and L.-M.
