ATP Finals: Federer defends Zverev as German gets booed after semi-final victory

first_imgRoger Federer sprang to Alexander Zverev’s defence after some of the Swiss great’s diehard fans booed the young German after his superb victory in the last four of the ATP Finals on Saturday.Zverev won fair and square 7-5 7-6(5) to claim a third victory in six meetings with Federer, but the semi-final ended in uproar after a controversial second-set tiebreak.Federer was leading 4-3 when Zverev stopped mid-rally after a ball slipped from a ball boys’ hand and into his line of vision. When the point was replayed Zverev served an ace.A few points later Zverev finished off the 37-year-old with a nerveless volley, but his on-court interview was drowned out by a cacophony of boos and heckling from fans who believed the German had gained an unfair advantage.”Look, I understand the frustration. It’s just unfortunate circumstances,” 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer told reporters. “Booing, I never like it. We see it in other sports all the time, but in tennis it’s rare.ATP Finals: Alexander Zverev stuns Roger Federer in semis”So when it happens, it gets very personal and we take it very direct. I think it’s unfortunate that this happened. Sascha doesn’t deserve it.”He apologised to me at the net. I was like, ‘buddy, shut up! You don’t need to apologise to me here. Congratulations on a great match and a great tournament so far.'”He didn’t do anything about it. He just called it how it was. He felt it affected play.

New Brunswick set for cannabis retail but first year sales less than

first_imgFREDERICTON – New Brunswick says it will be ready for cannabis sales when it becomes legal in October — but the delay from the original July startup will cost the province millions.Finance Minister Cathy Rogers says all 20 Cannabis NB locations will be open on Oct. 17 and staff will be hired and trained this summer.She says an original forecast of $6 million in revenues this year will be more like $3.6 million because of the delays in Ottawa getting Bill C-45 passed.“Given the delay, we are now projected to be revenue neutral for this fiscal year. Our original projections at budget were modest and at the lower end of the spectrum,” she said.Rogers said 2019-2020 will be the first full fiscal year for legalized recreational cannabis sales, and it might take a few quarters before her department is able to make informed forecasts on revenues.Rogers still won’t reveal the prices to be charged in New Brunswick.The province is imposing strict regulations on the sale, transport and use of cannabis.“Only those 19 years and older will be able to accept online deliveries and will be permitted in the retail locations,” Rogers said Thursday.Adults 19 and older will be able to legally buy up to 30 grams of cannabis from a Cannabis NB retail store, have up to 30 grams of dried cannabis or equivalent in their possession when outside their home, and grow up to four plants at their primary residence.When grown indoors, the plants must be in a separate, locked space. When grown outdoors, they must be located behind a locked enclosure that is 1.52 metres high.It will be against the law to consume cannabis in a public place or in any motor vehicle while it’s in operation. It’s also illegal to distribute cannabis to a minor.New Brunswick Health Minister Benoit Bourque said one education program has already been launched and there will be more.“It will target the vulnerable populations and specific populations, but mainly the youth, which is as far as we’re concerned in Health, the main population we want to target,” he said.Kim Snow, the chief residential tenancies officer for the province, said property owners can restrict tenants from smoking or growing cannabis if it’s in a lease from the start, or amended by mutual consent.“So as long as it’s written in the Form 6 standard form of lease their intentions ahead of time, then they will be able to restrict the smoking and prohibit the growing of cannabis,” she said.Snow said any lease provision that prohibits smoking applies to any kind of smoking.She said if there are no restrictions in the lease and the tenant won’t agree to changes, then the landlord’s hands may be tied.“If for example, the tenant did not want to agree to that term of their lease then the landlord would have to wait until the expiry of their lease or end it by the natural terms of their contract,” she said.last_img read more

Studios Fight Back Against Withering Rotten Tomatoes Scores

first_img Login/Register With: The power of the “Tomatometer” has reached a tipping point as critics screenings inch closer and closer to openings and movies try to avoid the dreaded green splat.The Emoji Movie‘s $24.5 million domestic opening during the July 28 to 30 weekend accomplished what no other movie has been able to do during a tough summer season at the box office — survive an abysmal Rotten Tomatoes score (7 percent) and open in line with prerelease tracking.One possible secret weapon? Sony wouldn’t let reviews post until midday on July 27, hours before the pic began playing in previews before rolling out everywhere. Sony, like every studio, is looking for their own basket of rotten eggs to throw at review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes in hopes of combating a bad “Tomatometer” score. That means screening some titles later and later for critics.“What other wide release with a score under 8 percent has opened north of $20 million? I don’t think there is one,” says Josh Greenstein, Sony Pictures president of worldwide marketing and distribution. “The Emoji Movie was built for people under 18, so we wanted to give the movie its best chance.” Facebook Advertisement Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement READ MORE Advertisementlast_img read more

MONTREAL FLAUNTS HEAVY METAL CREDENTIALS AS CITY HOSTS ROCK FESTIVAL

first_imgAdvertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment MONTREAL — The Montreal city councillor who spearheaded a motion last April to formally designate the city a headbangers’ paradise says the reaction to the gesture has been remarkable.“A lot of people are talking about it — people in the city, metalheads around the world,” said Coun. Craig Sauve, a musician and heavy metal buff.“People are very appreciative of the recognition — particularly in the metal scene, where metalheads feel like their culture is not respected and cast aside.” Advertisement Login/Register With: Those official credentials as a heavy metal “city of excellence” will be on full display this weekend as it plays host to the 10th edition of Heavy Montreal — a popular two-day metal and rock festival held on a small island near the city.While the designation didn’t come with any financial perks, observers are confident the “positive vibe” it created will bring big dividends for up-and-coming local acts.“It helps fill up the bars, it helps the promoters and it helps the bands,” says Montrealer Jimmy Kay, who runs Metal Voice, a YouTube channel that reports on heavy metal music. “Now when I interview bands, they know about it, they’ve heard about it.”Quebec bands that eventually found their way to Montreal did so for a variety of reasons, but the common denominator was a loyal and knowledgeable fan base packing the venues.“When you talk to bands that have been around for 30, 40 years … if it wasn’t for Montreal, they wouldn’t exist today, because that’s where everyone wanted to hear them,” Kay said. “The fans were there for them always.”Daniel Glick, director of concerts and events at concert promoter Evenko, which puts on the popular Heavy Montreal event, says the firm promotes about 100 metal shows yearly. He called the city’s recognition a nice “stamp of approval.”“A lot of the metal bands and hard rock bands have done really, really well here over the years, if you go back to the early years — Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica — Montreal is definitely one of their top markets,” Glick said. “It may have changed the way they did their live shows, the vibe here is definitely than going to another American or Canadian city. I think the fans are extremely passionate and respectful at the same time, and that definitely leads to that relationship (with bands) that has gone back to beginning.”Rick Hughes knows that connection well from his years with local band Sword, which made its mark in the 1980s and continues to perform to this day. He says the kids who were at his shows decades ago are among the people still coming out today.The St-Bruno, Que., native said that after the band’s last Montreal show, fans hung out for two hours to get autographs. In talking to them the affable Hughes learned the young fans from the 1980s had gone on to become everything from engineers to pilots and businessmen. Some had brought along their own children to see his band play.“You only find that in metal, and the enthusiasm of the crowd in Montreal is unequalled,” Hughes said.Montreal’s scene included homegrown bands like Cryptopsy and Kataklysm, but it also drew from all over Quebec as talent arrived to hone their craft. Quebec’s most famous heavy metal outfit, Voivod, was formed in Jonquiere before moving to Montreal in the mid-1980s.Guitarist Daniel Mongrain, who currently plays in Voivod and has played extensively with other groups, said bands knew that being in Montreal was essential. “It was good to play in our local area, but we had to go to Montreal to meet other bands, that’s where the action was,” he said.An accomplished guitarist, Mongrain began playing guitar at age 11 after having seen a music video involving the original incarnation of Voivod on the French-language music channel Musique Plus.“I bought a guitar and wanted to be like them,” said Mongrain, known as Chewy, who is celebrating his 11th anniversary with Voivod.Mongrain, 43, originally from Trois-Riveres, Que., said the Montreal sound fans worldwide now recognize is really the creation of acts that got their start all over the province.“Montreal is symbolic of the rest of the province,” he said. “There’s a uniqueness to the sound of Montreal, but Montreal includes Rimouski, Rouyn-Noranada, Trois-Rivieres and Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean.”By the time he was playing regularly in the 1990s, the grunge movement was gaining popularity in the rock scene, and times were difficult for metalheads. There were no big metal festivals at the time, but Montreal fans remained loyal.“It was a small community, but every time there was a show, there was a bunch of people — like a brotherhood.” Mongrain said. “It was an underground scene that was very alive, but still very underground.”Hughes said recognition of Montreal’s heavy metal roots was overdue, placing it alongside jazz as a sound that has long helped define Montreal.“It’s music that ages well through its intensity — it isn’t pop, it isn’t the flavour of the day,” he said. “Jazz isn’t the flavour of the day — it’s stays the same, and metal is the same: It stays metal.”Sidhartha Banerjee ~ The Canadian Presscenter_img Advertisement Jimmy Kay, the host of Metal Voice, poses in the basement of his home in Montreal, Thursday, July 25, 2019.

Two Canadian pension funds to invest 135 billion in toll road near

Two Canadian pension funds to invest $1.35 billion in toll road near Mexico City by The Canadian Press Posted Jun 9, 2016 11:24 am MDT Last Updated Jun 9, 2016 at 12:34 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Two of Canada’s biggest pension fund managers plan to spend a total of $1.35 billion cash to buy nearly half of a new partnership with a Mexican company that develops and operates infrastructure businesses.Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan would own a combined 49 per cent of the partnership and the rest would be owned by Ideal, one of the largest infrastructure companies in Latin America.Ideal’s contribution to the partnership is its 99 per cent equity interest in a company with the Arco Norte toll road, which passes by Mexico City and provides a link to major trade corridors.The concession gives Autopista Arco Norte rights to the 223-kilometre toll road for the next 30 years.CPPIB’s share of the new partnership would be 29 per cent and OTPP’s share would be 20 per cent, subject to approvals. They didn’t disclose how much cash each fund would pay for its share.The pension fund managers said in a joint statement that the Arco Norte toll road fits a strategy of investments with stable cash flows to support retirement benefits. read more

UN General Assembly renews longstanding call for end to US embargo against

A total of 189 UN Member States voted in favour, with Israel and the US voting against the resolution, urging all States to “refrain from promulgating and applying laws and measures” which among other things, in the case of the embargo, interfere with the freedom of trade and navigation. There were no abstentions.The Assembly called upon States “that have and continue to apply such laws and measures to take the steps necessary to repeal or invalidate them as soon as possible.”Through the resolution, the General Assembly also decided to include the agenda item entitled “Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba,” in the provisional agenda of next year’s session.The vote on the resolution is unenforceable, but the Cuban-sponsored resolution shines a spotlight on the relative isolation of the US regarding the embargo, which was first imposed in 1960, when former leader Fidel Castro came to power, following the revolution.Speaking ahead of the vote, Cuba’s Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla outlined the impact of the embargo on Cubans, especially due to restrictions on lifesaving medicines. “Incalculable human damage has been caused by the blockade, which is qualified as an act of genocide” he said, referring to the convention on the prevention of genocide. “It is also a violation of International Humanitarian Law, if it were a conflict,” he said.Before the resolution was adopted, eight amendments, relating to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), human rights and rule of law, proposed by the US, failed to pass (see here for voting details).Introducing the amendments, US Ambassador Nikki Haley said that the draft resolution “changes nothing” in terms of addressing the problems faced by Cuban citizens. “The United States will continue to stand with the Cuban people, until their rights and freedoms are restored. We won’t back down,” she said.Member States who spoke on the resolution over two days, overwhelmingly called on the US to end the embargo and other punitive measures against Cuba.National representatives said that the nearly six‑decades‑long blockade imposed on the Caribbean island by Washington impeded its right to development and its ability to participate fully in the global economy. They also urged the US to heed the Assembly’s repeated calls to lift its restrictive policies. read more

2 Players Kneel for Anthem Kaepernick Tweets to Thank

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills (10) and Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson (15) kneel during the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Tennessee Titans, Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in Miami Gardens, Fla. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)DENVER (AP) — Colin Kaepernick called them his brothers.Dolphins teammates Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson were the only two players to kneel during the national anthem on the NFL’s opening Sunday, and Kaepernick, who is no longer welcome on an NFL sideline, made sure to offer his thanks to them via social media .“My Brothers (Stills) and (Wilson) continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed,” Kapernick said in his tweet. “They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. … Love is at the root of our resistance.”It was Kaepernick, then with the 49ers, who sparked the anthem controversy by kneeling during the pregame ritual in 2016 — his way of protesting police brutality and social injustice in America.Since opting out of his contract after that season, Kaepernick has been unable to land a job with an NFL team and is suing the league for collusion.But his voice is still being heard. Last week, Nike introduced an ad featuring the quarterback and his message: “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.”On Sunday, Kaepernick’s message got through to his friends in Miami.“I know he has our back,” Stills said. “Really, there has been a huge difference between when we first started protesting and now. A lot of people are reaching out and supporting us, so I really appreciate that. To everybody out there … let’s keep doing our best to make a positive change and have these conversations and make our country a better place.”While Stills and Wilson were kneeling during the anthem, teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist. Niners receiver Marquise Goodwin did the same at San Francisco’s game at Minnesota. In Los Angeles, Chargers left tackle Russell Okung raised his fist. Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Brandon Marshall, and Seahawks linemen Duane Brown and Quinton Jefferson, retreated to their respective tunnels while the anthem played.At the peak of the anthem protests, as many as 200 players would partake. On most weeks last year, the Seahawks led the way with the most players doing something to make a statement. Though that number had fallen to 2 to start 2018, Brown wasn’t worried.“I made my decision. That was my decision,” he said. “I wasn’t paying attention to see what other teams or other players are doing.”The NFL briefly had a policy in place in May regarding the anthem, but rescinded it after the players union filed a grievance, which sent the league to the negotiating table with the union. Those talks are ongoing. Brown said he hasn’t heard any word from the union dissuading player protests during the anthem.“I don’t think that would be the best idea to try to get people to move on from it,” he said. “The country hasn’t moved on from it, so I’m not going to move on from it, either.”Among those keeping the issue front and center is President Donald Trump, who sent a tweet of his own several hours before Kaepernick’s, taking digs at the NFL, and linking low ratings for Thursday night’s opener between Atlanta and Philadelphia (lowest for an opener since 2008) to players who refuse to stand for the anthem.“If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!” he tweeted.CBS and Fox, which carried Sunday afternoon’s games, have said they did not plan on televising the anthem.However, NBC did show the anthem on Thursday night (but not before Sunday night’s Bears-Packers game), and no players kneeled or protested in other ways.That included Malcolm Jenkins of the Eagles, who raised his fist during the anthem last season but did not for the opener. During pregame warmups, he wore a shirt that read “Ca$h bail = poverty trap.”Jenkins, a founder of the Players Coalition which was formed to tackle issues similar to those Kaepernick is concerned about, said he would like to move the focus away from the anthem.“I think there’s a huge need for us to turn the attention to not only the issues, but what players are actually doing in their communities to promote change,” he said. “We’re trying to move past the rhetoric of what’s right or what’s wrong in terms of the anthem, and really focus on the systematic issues that are plaguing our communities.” read more

Gaz de schiste les sénateurs socialistes refusent toute nouvelle exploration

first_imgGaz de schiste : les sénateurs socialistes refusent toute nouvelle explorationLundi, Total faisait part de son souhait de poursuivre son exploration de gaz de schiste dans le sud-est de la France, et ce au moyen d’autres techniques que la fracturation hydraulique, interdite par la loi. Une volonté à laquelle les sénateurs du parti socialiste s’opposent fermement.L’annonce de Total est vraisemblablement loin d’avoir plu. Lundi, le groupe pétrolier a déposé auprès de l’administration française, un rapport “motivé par la volonté du groupe de préserver les droits à l’exploration d’un domaine minier, droits qui lui ont été attribués en mars 2010 pour une durée de 5 ans”. Total affirme vouloir continuer son exploration de gaz de schiste, en faisant appel à d’autres techniques que la fracturation hydraulique, une méthode interdite par la loi depuis le mois de juillet dernier.À lire aussiFarouche opposition au gaz de schisteMais dans un communiqué, les sénateurs socialistes ont tenu à faire part de leur ferme opposition à ce projet. Ils réclament une loi visant à interdire toute exploration de gaz de schiste, quelque que soit la méthode de prospection employée. “Jean-Pierre BEL, Président du groupe Socialiste, et l’ensemble des sénateurs socialistes, dénoncent les failles juridiques et les limites de la loi promulguée par le Président de la République le 13 juillet dernier. Censée, selon le gouvernement, empêcher les industriels de procéder à l’exploration des hydrocarbures de schiste, elle n’a fait que retarder de deux mois,  comme les sénateurs socialistes l’avaient prédit, l’exploration dans les zones concernées” déplorent-ils. “Le groupe TOTAL a donné le signal, les autres sociétés bénéficiant de permis suivront”, prédisent les sénateurs, qui “exigent du gouvernement que la révision de l’ordonnance réformant le code minier, initialement prévue avant l’été 2011, soit inscrite dans les délais les plus courts à l’ordre du jour de la prochaine session du Parlement”.Une technique non communiquée Dans sa demande de permis, Total n’évoque aucune technique pouvant être utilisée pour l’exploration du gaz de schiste sans causer de dommages environnementaux. “On pense que l’interdiction de la fracturation hydraulique seule ne justifie pas qu’on renonce au permis, parce qu’il y a d’autres hydrocarbures qui peuvent être trouvés et produits sans la fracturation hydraulique”, s’est contenté d’expliquer à l’AFP Bruno Courme, le directeur Total Gas Shale Europe.Le 14 septembre 2011 à 16:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Happy birthday Rohit Sharma 5 turning points in Hitmans career that led

first_imgRohit Sharma is celebrating his 32nd birthdayIANSIndia’s opening batsman in limited-overs format and the captain of Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma, is celebrating his 32nd birthday. The ‘Hitman’ as he has come to be known, is now firmly established as one of the best ODI and T20 batsmen in the world and among the best the country has ever produced.But reaching his current status wasn’t easy. In fact, Rohit had to undergo phases of extreme failure and derision of fans before achieving the stature he now occupies. Sharma first appeared on international stage on June 23, 2007 when he made his ODI debut against Ireland at Belfast. But he had to wait till 2013 before establishing himself in the Indian limited-overs side. Let us locate the five inflexion points in his career which took him from a talented youngster to a modern-day great.50* vs South Africa in World T20 (September 20, 2007)India were in serious danger of getting knocked out of the inaugural World T20 in South Africa when they faced the hosts at Durban. Not only did they need to win, but that too with a big margin. The game was played on a pitch that wasn’t easy for run-scoring. But Rohit’s knock of 50* and his partnership with Mahendra Singh Dhoni helped India reach a competitive total of 153. In the end, it proved to be enough as India not only qualified for the semi-finals but eventually won the title. This knock was the first indication of the greatness that Sharma possessed.66 vs Australia in first final of tri-series (March 2, 2008)India went into this triangular series in early 2008 with a relatively young side and without some of the big names that had featured previously. It was also early on in the captaincy reign of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the challenge facing India was the toughest – defeating world champions Australia in Australia. But with the senior pro Sachin Tendulkar leading the way with a hundred, India won the best of three finals with one match remaining. Rohit also made a mark in the first final at Sydney by playing a very important knock of 66 and sharing a 123-run fourth wicket, match-winning partnership with Tendulkar. This innings was provided further proof of Sharma’s potential. Rohit Sharma has been especially successful against Australia in ODIsBCCI83 vs England (January 23, 2013)It was crystal clear to everyone that Rohit Sharma was an exceptionally talented player by the end of his first year in international cricket. But despite playing the odd good innings, the right-hander remained highly inconsistent. Constantly described as highly capable but continually underachieving, Rohit became a subject of jokes and the term ‘talented’ felt like an albatross around his neck. 2012 especially proved to be a horrid year for the Mumbai batter as he failed in a tri-series in Australia and endured a most miserable time during a five-match series in Sri Lanka. His scores in that contest read 5, 0, 0, 4 and 4. While Rohit was struggling to lay bat on ball, Virat Kohli, junior to him, had established himself as a prolific run-getter in both ODIs and Tests. At this stage, Indian team made a very crucial decision, to shift Rohit to opener’s position in the batting order. A similar move in 1994 had changed the trajectory of Sachin Tendulkar’s ODI career. At Mohali, during the fourth ODI of a five-match series against England, Rohit opened the innings for the first time. He was successful and scored a brilliant 83. This indeed proved to be a major turning point of his career as Rohit’s success soared to unimaginable heights following this change of position.141* vs Australia at Jaipur (October 16, 2013)As the end of 2013 approached, Rohit was on a firm footing in international cricket and had established a successful opening partnership with his friend Shikhar Dhawan. But the match where his unparalleled ability first blazed through in a spectacular form was the second ODI of the seven-match home series against Australia. India were chasing a mammoth target of 360. But they needed only their top-three batsmen to make a mockery of it. Rohit Sharma led the way with a magnificent 141* off 123 balls which saw India home in just 43.3 overs. The shots played by him were simply breath-taking and it was clear that Sharma was no longer just talented but also an achiever.138 vs Australia at Melbourne (January 18, 2015)By the time India played a tri-series in early 2015 in Australia, Rohit’s status as one of the most devastating batsman in the world was firmly established. Only a few months ago, he had achieved the previously unimaginable feat of scoring 264 runs in a one-day match against Sri Lanka. But there were still doubts about his ability to play big innings away from home, especially outside the subcontinent. He finally put those doubts to rest by scoring a superb hundred at Melbourne againnst Australia. It was now clear that Sharma could not just bully attacks on Indian pitches but hurt them in foreign conditions also.last_img read more

first_imgCredit: Vera Kratochvil/public domain Citation: Physicists investigate the structure of time, with implications for quantum mechanics and philosophy (2016, February 1) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-02-physicists-implications-quantum-mechanics-philosophy.html (Phys.org)—Although in theory it may seem possible to divide time up into infinitely tiny intervals, the smallest physically meaningful interval of time is widely considered to be the Planck time, which is approximately 10-43 seconds. This ultimate limit means that it is not possible for two events to be separated by a time smaller than this. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission.

DOI: 10.1140/epjc/s10052-016-3884-4. Also at arXiv:1501.03111 [physics.gen-ph] Explore further But now in a new paper, physicists have proposed that the shortest physically meaningful length of time may actually be several orders of magnitude longer than the Planck time. In addition, the physicists have demonstrated that the existence of such a minimum time alters the basic equations of quantum mechanics, and as quantum mechanics describes all physical systems at a very small scale, this would change the description of all quantum mechanical systems.The researchers, Mir Faizal at the University of Waterloo and University of Lethbridge in Canada, Mohammed M. Khalil at Alexandria University in Egypt, and Saurya Das at the University of Lethbridge, have recently published a paper called “Time crystals from minimum time uncertainty” in The European Physical Journal C.”It might be possible that, in the universe, the minimum time scale is actually much larger than the Planck time, and this can be directly tested experimentally,” Faizal told Phys.org.The Planck time is so short that no experiment has ever come close to examining it directly—the most precise tests can access a time interval down to about 10−17 seconds. Nevertheless, there is a great deal of theoretical support for the existence of the Planck time from various approaches to quantum gravity, such as string theory, loop quantum gravity, and perturbative quantum gravity. Almost all of these approaches suggest that it is not possible to measure a length shorter than the Planck length, and by extension not possible to measure a time shorter than the Planck time, since the Planck time is defined as the time it takes light to travel a single unit of the Planck length in a vacuum. Motivated by several recent theoretical studies, the scientists further delved into the question of the structure of time—in particular, the long-debated question of whether time is continuous or discrete.”In our paper, we have proposed that time is discrete in nature, and we have also suggested ways to experimentally test this proposal,” Faizal said. One possible test involves measuring the rate of spontaneous emission of a hydrogen atom. The modified quantum mechanical equation predicts a slightly different rate of spontaneous emission than that predicted by the unmodified equation, within a range of uncertainty. The proposed effects may also be observable in the decay rates of particles and of unstable nuclei. Based on their theoretical analysis of the spontaneous emission of hydrogen, the researchers estimate that the minimum time may be orders of magnitude larger than the Planck time, but no greater than a certain amount, which is fixed by previous experiments. Future experiments could lower this bound on the minimum time or determine its exact value.The scientists also suggest that the proposed changes to the basic equations of quantum mechanics would modify the very definition of time. They explain that the structure of time can be thought of as a crystal structure, consisting of discrete, regularly repeating segments. On a more philosophical level, the argument that time is discrete suggests that our perception of time as something that is continuously flowing is just an illusion. “The physical universe is really like a movie/motion picture, in which a series of still images shown on a screen creates the illusion of moving images,” Faizal said. “Thus, if this view is taken seriously, then our conscious precipitation of physical reality based on continuous motion becomes an illusion produced by a discrete underlying mathematical structure.” “This proposal makes physical reality platonic in nature,” he said, referring to Plato’s argument that true reality exists independent of our senses. “However, unlike other theories of platonic idealism, our proposal can be experimentally tested and not just be argued for philosophically.” Detection of mini black holes at the LHC could indicate parallel universes in extra dimensionslast_img read more

Afghan police say man killed wife for wanting job

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Comments   Share   Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A man in a western Afghan city has confessed to stabbing his wife to death to prevent her from taking a job outside the home, police said Monday.Mohammad Anwar, who was arrested in the provincial capital for the murder, said he killed his wife during an argument over whether she should work at private company in the city, Herat province police spokesman Noor Khan Nekzad said. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project ____Associated Press Writer Heidi Vogt contributed to this report in Kabul.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)center_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories There were conflicting accounts of what led to the fight between Mohammad Anwar and his wife Gulsom.Gulsom’s brother, Ghulam Sarwar, said his sister’s husband had just returned from Iran and was pressing her to hand over money that she had earned weaving carpets and which she needed to support their two children. Sarwar said the two got into an argument and she fled the house. He followed her to her parents’ house and then went after her with a knife.The couple’s two children _ an 11-year-old daughter and a 7-year-old boy _ have been taken in by Gulsom’s parents, Sarwar said.The victim’s mother was shown on Afghan television crying and accusing her son-in-law of trying to sell her daughter’s children for drug money. She witnessed the murder but said she had no way of stopping it.“My daughter was killed in front of my eyes,” said the sobbing Zahra, who family members said only went by one name.Women’s rights activists have already been up in arms in Herat after the Oct. 9 killing of a young woman named Mah Gul who was allegedly being forced into prostitution.Police arrested Mah Gul’s mother-in-law Pari Gul and her 18-year old cousin Najib, after the murder. Mabuba Jamshidi, head of the provincial women’s affairs department, said that Najib had confessed to beheading the victim after she refused to perform “immoral acts.” The woman’s relatives disputed the account, saying her husband was a drug addict who killed his wife because she refused to give him money.The killing comes less than two weeks after a woman was beheaded in the same city for refusing alleged demands by her in-laws to engage in prostitution.Human rights activists say they are worried such incidents will become more common as Western forces who helped women gain rights in the conservative country draw down. Under Taliban rule, women were banned from leaving the home unless they had a male relative as an escort and wore a burqa robe that covered their faces and bodies.Despite guaranteed rights and progressive new laws, the U.N. still ranks Afghanistan as one of the world’s worst countries when it comes to women’s rights.The Taliban’s treatment of women has been thrust back into the headlines this month with the shooting of a 15-year-old schoolgirl in neighboring Pakistan. The militants said they targeted the girl because she was an outspoken opponent of the group and promoted “Western thinking,” such as girls’ education.Girls’ schools have flourished in Afghanistan in particular in the years since the 2001 ouster of the Taliban, primarily funded by the U.S. and other Western donors.
