Zimmer and Kent visits North Peace Seniors Housing Society

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Local M.P. Bob Zimmer and the Honourable Peter Kent, M.P. for Thornhill, Ontario, made a visit to tenants of the North Peace Seniors Housing Society on May 3.Kent discussed the ethics or lack thereof that many companies have when it comes to using personal information.According to Kent, many companies use the personal information that they have found through online purchases, social media and even Google/Gmail emails and sell this information to the highest bidder in hopes to sell users things they want them to buy and, unfortunately, some may even use this information to try to sway personal views on important political matters. Kent says the Ethics Committee’s goal is to curb and reprimand these companies that use personal information in an unethical manner.Along with Kent, Zimmer talked about LNG, Site C, gas pricing and other issues concerning the local, provincial and federal government.last_img read more

Government says PTA not used for past six months

A committee chaired by Sagala Ratnayake had been appointed to draft the new counter terrorism law instead of the existing Prevention of Terrorism Act.The Government said the new law will provide adequate provisions for prevention of terrorism and affirm Sri Lanka’s commitment on human rights responsibilities. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had last year submitted the policy and legal framework of the new law, which is to replace the PTA. The Government says the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) has not been used for the past six months.Law and Order Minister Sagala Ratnayake told Parliament the PTA will be replaced soon with a new counter terrorism law. Responding to a question raised in Parliament today, the Minister said that there was no need to use the PTA anymore and so it will be replaced. Last week the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein called on Sri Lanka to move faster on essential post war confidence building measures, including resolving long-pending cases registered under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Warning of empathy gap Ban urges faith leaders to speak up against

“At a time when we are seeing so much division and hatred, I wanted to bring people together under the banner of the United Nations to explore how best to respond,” the Secretary-General said on the second day of a gathering at Headquarters in New York of leaders representing diverse faiths, including Islam, Judaism, Christianity, as well as ministers, academics, and spiritual teachers. Mr. Ban said that he was deeply concerned as today communities rushed to point out an affront against themselves, but ignored or dismissed the legitimate grievances of others. “I am worried that a certain numbness and helplessness may be setting in as people witness atrocity after atrocity,” he said.“Religion does not cause violence, people do,” the Secretary-General continued. “Today we turn to what you as men and women can and must do in this vital endeavour,” he told the High-Level Assembly meeting on Promoting Tolerance and Reconciliation, Fostering Peaceful, Inclusive Societies and Countering Violent Extremism, which opened yesterday and concludes today. “The dignity and worth of the human person, the equal rights of men and women, tolerance and living together in harmony…these principles are our bedrock and they are what this organization defends,” he emphasized. But those values are held in contempt by violent extremists and “bankrupt ideologies.” Such violent extremism transcends borders. Brutal acts are vividly committed by D’aesh, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and other sectarian groups. Migrants are among the most vulnerable targets, Mr. Ban said, adding that there is a “direct line” between prejudice and extremism, racism and genocide. After the Holocaust, and with the establishment of the UN, “the world vowed never again…but we have seen injustices over and over again.” The human contradiction is that “we are capable of utmost brutality but also compassion, tolerance and reconciliation,” the Secretary-General pointed out, adding that “today, I ask for your wisdom and leadership.” “We need you to promote dialogue as an antidote to intolerance. Your voices will be critical in countering hate speech and finding common ground,” Mr. Ban told the meeting. “Faith leaders are on the frontlines of your community and many of you see the forces of radicalization. Use your influence to stand up for moderation and mutual understanding.” Equally important is addressing the root causes of extremism. Abuses and indignities make individuals ripe for recruitment for sectarian and violent groups, the UN chief said, calling on leaders to ensure another way, a better way, which includes equality, and promoting opportunity and upholding human rights. He also announced that later this year, he would present a UN Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism. Meanwhile, faith leaders must raise their voices to counter the narrative of extremists.“Missiles may kill terrorists, but I am convinced that good governance is what kills terrorism,” Mr. Ban said, urging the gathering to speak out against human rights breaches and social injustice wherever they were encountered. “I ask you, too, to do more to amplify the voice of the moderate majority so we may drown out those who preach violence and hatred.” The international community must protect the rights of people to think, speak and worship freely. Faith leaders gathered today have a vast audience, great influence and an immense responsibility. “Together, we can rise to the call of the UN Charter to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, reaffirm human rights, and promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,” Mr. Ban concluded. Speaking to reporters later in the day, Mr. Ban said that religious leaders can play a central role in “healing sectarian divides and countering the forces of radicalization.”“That is why I wanted people from many faiths to come together at the United Nations to express our shared abhorrence at such violence,” the UN chief said, pledging to form an advisory panel of faith leaders to guide the global communit.“When governments respect human rights and provide opportunities for people to voice their grievances…the attraction to violent extremism will wither and peace and prosperity will grow,” Mr. Ban added.In the afternoon, President of General Assembly, Sam Kutesa, closed the session thanking participants and religious leaders for providing a great deal of insight during the two-day talks. “There was widespread agreement that no one should be left on the margins; including young people, women, religious minorities or others facing discrimination based on race, ethnic origin or religious belief,” he noted. “Some participants called for a global preventive action plan to address the recruitment or luring of young people into terrorist organizations. It was noted that youth are vital in creating a more tolerant future generation, with educators and parents, especially mothers, having a particularly important role to play in their upbringing,” Mr. Kutesa emphasized. The General Assembly President also commended participants for recognizing the importance of media both as a recruitment tool for terrorist organizations as well as a positive means for educating citizens in a thoughtful fashion. He further called on individuals to “go beyond” tolerance towards the principles of mutual respect. “Religious leaders have an important role to play, and we should support them in spreading their messages of peace, harmony and hope,” Mr. Kutesa stressed, urging steps to be taken to fully engage religious leaders, including greater collaboration with the UN, with a focus on maximizing respective strengths. read more

New structure launches for Faculty of Education

Brock’s Faculty of Education (FoE) took the next step in its evolution on July 1, with its two departments and two of its academic centres becoming part of the new Department of Educational Studies.This move creates the first single-department Faculty in Brock’s history and makes the department the biggest in the University with 58 faculty members.The Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education will continue to be a distinct entity within the Faculty, which also houses the Brock Learning Lab and the Centre for Research in Multiliteracies.The new structure will create opportunities for faculty to teach across programs and encourage intradepartmental research collaboration and partnerships.“Education is a uniquely interdisciplinary field within academia and the new structure will allow us to more easily develop differentiated programs that can take advantage of new program partnerships,” says David Hutchison, who acted as the transitional Chair of the Department of Educational Studies prior to its official launch.The process of amalgamating the FoE’s two previous departments started with the recommendations of a 2015 external review.The FoE considered several structures over the next two years, with an ad hoc committee examining the possibilities. The Faculty’s two departments and three academic centres voted on restructuring in 2017 and an academic plan was supported by Senate in May 2017. “Over the past year, we have been working diligently to bring the new Department of Educational Studies to reality for its July 1 start date,” says Hutchison.The new Department of Educational Studies will be led by Chair Mary-Louise Vanderlee.“Mary-Louise will provide an experienced, steady hand to guide the Department of Educational Studies through its first years,” says Michael Owen, Dean of the Faculty of Education. “I am very confident that we will be a Faculty that is cohesive, collaborative and focused on our mandate to educate exemplar educators.”Programs in the amalgamated department will be led by program directors and governed by program committees.There will not be direct or immediate changes to FoE programs as a result of the new department, but the new structure will make program decisions more seamless and transparent.The Faculty’s story began in 1965 with the establishment of the St. Catharines Teachers’ College. In 1971, the Teachers’ College integrated with Brock as the College of Education, becoming the Faculty of Education in 1989.Over the past 53 years, the Faculty has grown into one of the most respected Faculties of Education in Canada for its teaching, research and community engagement. For example, Brock continues to be a preferred choice for undergraduate students wishing to pursue concurrent education studies.The Faculty of Education is home to nearly 28,000 of Brock’s more than 100,000 alumni. read more

Army returns home overwhelms DIII SUNY Maritime 9140

WEST POINT, N.Y. — Josh Caldwell and Aaron Duhart each put up 11 points as Army used superior numbers to stop Division III State University of New York Maritime, 91-40 on Wednesday.The Black Knights played just their second home game after dropping four straight on the road, starting with a loss at Duke.Army (2-4) had 17 players see action; 13 figured in the scoring. The Black Knights’ bench scored 51 points. Matt Wilson, Army’s leading scorer, finished with just six points but grabbed 10 rebounds. Overall, Army was 34 of 74 from the field (45.9 per cent), including 12 of 45 from beyond the 3-point line and held a 54-31 advantage on the boards.Brendan McGovern, the lone player to reach double-figures, scored 11 points for the Privateers, who were held to just 13 of 55 shooting from the field.The Associated Press read more

Memoto lœil numérique révolutionneratil votre mémoire

first_imgMemoto : l’œil numérique révolutionnera-t-il votre mémoire? Avoir des beaux souvenirs de sa vie reste dans le domaine du possible, mais se souvenir de toute sa vie, c’est déjà moins aisé. Et pourtant, un dispositif, le Memoto, va peut-être aider à atteindre cet objectif avec une possibilité inédite : avoir accès à un instant passé, sur photo, pour en profiter dans le présent ! Mais quelles seront les conséquences pour notre mémoire? Si la vie était un gigantesque album photo, que diriez-vous de pouvoir, à loisir, en revoir certains moments clés ? C’est, en substance, ce que propose le Memoto.Il ne dispose d’aucuns boutons et se met en route une fois porté sur un vêtement. Il intègre un capteur 5 Mpixels et une puce GPS qui positionnera géographiquement chaque prise de vue. Après déclenchement, le Memoto transmet les photos sur un smartphone, via une application ad hoc, qui affichera les clichés sur une ligne chronologique représentant une journée, puis un mois, un an, une vie ! Le stockage des données, lui, sera en parti assuré, via Internet, par sa société créatrice.Gérer l’ensemble de ces images ne serait pas chose difficile, contrairement à ce qu’il paraît, l’application donnant la possibilité de retrouver certains moments-clés d’une journée dans une vidéo montée en ralentie grâce aux différentes images, et le référencement des fichiers s’effectuerait “selon l’heure, la luminosité ou les lieux visités pendant la journée”, explique l’équipe suédoise créatrice du Memoto.Une nouvelle approche de la mémoire ?Alors que de nombreux objets nous aident à se souvenir de certains rendez-vous, des choses quotidiennes à faire et même d’anniversaire de proches, le Memoto peut-il faire franchir une nouvelle étape vers cet “assistanat mémoriel” ? Si la première pensée tendrait vers une réponse positive, elle ne paraît pas si sûre quand on y réfléchit un peu plus. Car dans son usage, l’accès à un instant est évidement plus aisé via des fichiers qu’à travers les souvenirs. Mais la projection d’une journée, matérialisée sous la forme d’une ligne du temps, avec photos et mini films illustrant sa chronologie, permet également de mieux imager les différentes étapes de la journée et, de ce fait, mieux s’en souvenir.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le memoto pourrait donc devenir un marqueur pour la mémoire, avec des applications permettant de plonger de façon plus précise dans  les instants, mais ne se substituerait pas aux capacités mémorielles du tout un chacun. Il s’agit, pour l’instant, d’un projet dont le financement a été lancé en ligne sur le site kickstarter (qui a déjà levé un demi-million de dollars !), mais l’idée, elle, n’est pas nouvelle, surtout en tant qu’outil.Une idée qui a fait son cheminUn autre projet avait vu le jour il y a un peu plus de trois ans, la Vicon Revue, en 2009. Elle permettait, entre autre chose, d’aider les personnes atteintes par la maladie d’Alzheimer, en les aidant à se souvenir des endroits empruntés et des actions faites durant la journée, par exemple. Elle se déclenchait toutes les trente secondes et permettait de stocker 30.000 photos pour les envoyer sur Internet afin d’atteindre le même objectif que le Memoto…Aujourd’hui, la caméra est devenue la Revue 3M, avec capteur de 3 Mpixels, thermomètre, gyroscope, compas et boussole électroniques intégrés, avec capteur d’éclairage et infrarouge : et oui, il en faut beaucoup d’informations pour se rapprocher d’un souvenir ! Malheureusement, la vente de cette alternative à la Memoto se clôturera le 31 décembre prochain. Le projet suédois devenant alors, l’une des meilleures chances de faire de notre vie un bel album d’images numériques.Le 29 novembre 2012 à 12:59 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Et si les cheveux gris devenaient un lointain souvenir

first_imgEt si les cheveux gris devenaient un lointain souvenir ?Une récente étude parue dans le FASEB journal révèle l’existence d’un nouveau traitement pour recolorer les cheveux gris. Il permettrait également de soigner le vitiligo, une maladie de l’épiderme qui se caractérise par des taches blanches. Encore une fois, la science se met au service de l’esthétique et dégote un tout nouveau remède miracle contre… les cheveux gris ! Que les dénigreurs des chevelures poivres et sels se réjouissent, il sera bientôt possible de conserver sa couleur originelle jusqu’à son dernier souffle et ce, sans avoir à passer par un salon de coiffure.Le traitement devrait bientôt voir le jour grâce à une recherche menée par des biologistes hollandais, allemands et britanniques. Pour en arriver là, les chercheurs ont étudié 2.411 personnes atteintes de vitiligo, maladie caractérisée par la formation de taches blanches à la surface de la peau. A l’instar des personnes subissant un blanchiment des cheveux, ces patients subissent un “stress oxydatif épidermique massif” entrainant l’accumulation de peroxyde d’oxygène dans le follicule pileux.Pour soigner ce phénomène les scientifiques ont testé sur leurs sujets un nouveau cocktail antioxydant formé d’un composé topique, activé par le soleil et transformé en “pseudocatalase modifié”. Les résultats, publiés dans le FASEB journal (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology), indiquent une nette re-pigmentation de la peau et des cheveux.Un traitement qui s’attaque aux racines du problèmeÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Pendant plusieurs générations, divers remèdes ont été concoctés pour cachés les cheveux gris, finalement un traitement qui s’attaque pour la première fois aux racines du problème a été développé” a indiqué Gerald Weissmann, rédacteur en chef de la revue cité par le Telegraph. Néanmoins, celui-ci a précisé que la priorité était tout de même de trouver un traitement contre le vitiligo. “Bien que ce soit une nouvelle excitante, ce qui l’est encore plus est que ça marche pour le vitiligo”, a t-il ajouté relevant que cette maladie peut avoir un important impact socio-émotionnel.  Un point de vue partagé par le professeur Karin Schallreuter, principal auteur et spécialiste du vitiligo. “Cela ne fait aucun doute que la perte soudaine de la couleur de la peau ou des cheveux peut affecter les individus de nombreuses différentes manières”, a t-elle souligné. Toutefois, des tests supplémentaires devront encore être effectués sur le traitement avant que celui-ci ne soit commercialisé.Le 7 mai 2013 à 13:35 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Klipsch Forte III speakers are masters of reality

first_img Klipsch Forte III The Audiophiliac Post a comment The Klipsch Forte III speakers’ front and rear panels. Klipsch It’s next to impossible to sit still when listening to Klipsch Forte III speakers. For me that doesn’t happen with most speakers, but this big Klipsch does a better job bringing recorded music back to life. I’m bouncing around to Sonic Youth, Bob Marley, Miles Davis, or any music with a groove. The urge is so strong that even when I try to resist I can’t sit still. It’s that good.Priced at $1,999 each in the US (per pair price in the UK is £3,990 and AU$9,490 in Australia) the Forte III is expensive, though by high-end standards they’re an absolute steal. The speaker features a 1-inch (25mm) titanium compression horn tweeter, 1.75-inch (44mm) compression horn midrange, and for soul stirring low bass there’s a 12-inch (305mm) fiber composite woofer augmented with a rear-baffle-mounted 15-inch (380mm) passive radiator! Impedance is rated at 8 ohms, and the rear panel hosts metal bi-wire connectors. The Forte III stands 36 inches tall, 16.5 inches wide, 13 inches deep (914 by 420 by 330mm), and it weighs 72 pounds (32.6 kg). The original Klipsch Forte debuted way back in 1984, Forte II arrived in 1989, and the Forte III I’m reviewing here came out in 2017. Like those two the Forte III is made in the US. It’s available in Black Ash, American Walnut, Natural Cherry and Distressed Oak real wood finishes. The Cherry wood finish is my favorite. In 2017 I reviewed the Forte III in the New York CNET listening room with a Rotel RA 1592 stereo integrated amp, and I found the Forte III’s treble a tad bright and not well suited to classical music. Still, I couldn’t shake it, I wanted to reconnect with the Forte III and wondered if a sweet sounding tube amplifier would be a better match with these speakers. So for this long-term listening test I listened to the Forte IIIs with a lot of amps, everything from a 5 watt per channel Almarro A205A tube amp to a 100 watt solid state Pass Labs XA100.5 at home, and the sound never disappointed.Wall powerI also heard another pair of Forte IIIs at a friend’s apartment with a very high-end Japanese Shindo Haut Brion tube amp, and the sound was to die for. I heard similar treble sweetness with solid state amps such as the Schiit Aegir, First Watt J2 and F7, and a Pass Labs XA100.5 in my large listening room. The Forte IIIs’ effortless sound with high volume listening was expected — lots of big speakers can do that — but the Forte III also excelled with late night quiet levels. Detail and dynamics were consistent, regardless of volume level. The Forte IIIs let you feel the music. Klipsch Forte IIIFeel the music. Sarah Tew/CNET With good recordings I can hear each individual instrument in the mix with thrilling clarity. This “separation” sounds more like the way I hear live music, especially when it’s purely acoustic and not played over a concert hall sound system. Just instruments and singers au natural on stage in a small club or maybe a church. The Forte III relishes that sort of intimacy, and so do I.Miles Davis’ trumpet sounds more like a real trumpet than it does over any other speaker I’ve had at home. The brassiness of the trumpet, the sharp transient sound of horns are more realistic over horn speakers. With the Rolling Stones underrated Emotional Rescue LP, the band’s grooves were given their full due. Loud music over big horn speakers is a tough act to beat.The Forte III sound is “information dense” — that’s what crossed my mind as I played jazz drummer Peter Erskine’s Old School CD at near realistically loud volume (over 100 decibels), and the music’s dynamics were exhilarating. The sound of this uncompressed recording of a drum kit was so far beyond what any bookshelf speaker at any price can replicate. That, and the way each of the other instruments stood out so clearly in the mix. Other speakers blur them, make them sound more homogeneous.The Forte III’s bass is very clear and tight: There’s no flab or bloat down there, it’s not an overtly bassy speaker. Still, the 12-inch woofer and rear passive driver make themselves felt. Acoustic stand up basses sound big and boldly resonant, and these speakers have a real knack for getting the meaty texture of electric bass just right. There’s an effortless quality to the sound that you just never get with speakers with 6- or 8-inch woofers, even when they’re paired with subwoofers. The Forte III is one of the most enjoyable speakers I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing. It rocked with a vengeance, jazz rhythms lit up my room, and electronica pulsed with rare authority. Mentioned Above Klipsch Groove (Black) Tags See it Review • Klipsch’s mini Groove Bluetooth speaker packs some punch Klipsch Groovecenter_img 0 10 Photos Many other fine speakers including the TAD ME-1 and Bowers & Wilkins 805 D3 have served as long-term references at home. They were more transparent, and their imaging more sharply focused, but their sound was miniaturized relative to the Forte III. The 71-inch tall (1.8 meters) Magnepan 3.7 panel speakers produced closer-to-life size sound with exceedingly low distortion, but the 3.7s dynamics were restricted. No one speaker has yet to score a perfect 10 on every count; we still have to prioritize the sound we want from our speakers. If you’ve only lived with bookshelf speakers, you’ll be in for a shock when you hear the Forte III in your living room. No small speaker, or even the best of them, can match the Forte III’s power delivery. They unleash music’s dynamics with ease, and I’m not just talking about the wham-bam, knock you back in your seat dynamics. No, the Forte III is also a more expressive speaker at late night listening levels. The music breathes, it flows, it moves. If the Forte III is too big or beyond your budget, but I have whetted your appetite for big speaker sound — don’t despair, consider the Klipsch Heresy III speakers, that stand a mere 24 inches (610mm) tall and sell for $1,299 each in the US, and pair prices are £2,700 in the UK and AU$5,500 in Australia. And if those are still out of reach, consider my 2018 Speaker of the Year, the $550, £600, AU$1,499 per pair Klipsch RP 600M bookshelf speakers that conjure the essence of live music in a smaller package.

New lava dome forms on Cleveland Volcano

first_imgMount Cleveland in July of 2016 (Photo by John Lyons/AVO/USGS)Cleveland Volcano in the Aleutians near Unalaska is restless. Scientists at the Alaska Volcano Observatory observed that a new lava dome formed in the summit crater over the weekend, and lava is trickling out. The dome is about 4200 square meters, a little smaller than 10 NBA basketball courts.Listen now“This happens relatively routinely at Cleveland that we grow small little lava domes,” Dave Schneider, a geophysicist with the AVO, said. “They’re kind of shaped like a pancake in the summit crater. Those typically exist for weeks to months before they’re blown up and we start the process all over again.”It has been about a decade by Schneider’s estimate since Cleveland has exploded with a significant amount of lava. This pattern of building pressure and spewing small amounts of lava is one it goes through frequently.“We grow somewhere between one to two to three domes per year it seems. Sometimes there’s more, then less. In 2017, we’ve had at least three periods of dome growth, the last of which was in August. That was destroyed by an explosion,” Schneider said.Even though Cleveland’s explosions are frequent, its pattern does not give scientists much clue as to when this new dome will explode. It could be a matter of days or months.The AVO can detect explosions with the limited monitoring equipment they have on the island. When Cleveland does explode they work with the Federal Aviation Administration and National Weather Service to get word out about ash clouds and other potential aviation dangers.last_img read more

Update Bush Airports Terminal B Checkpoint Remains Closed Amid Government Shutdown

first_img 00:00 /00:00 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Wikimedia CommonsPassengers are being directed to go through TSA checkpoints at Terminals C and E.Update: As of January 18, Terminal B will remain closed until further notice.The TSA security checkpoint and ticketing counter at Bush Intercontinental Airport’s Terminal B will remain closed due to staffing shortages, as a result of the partial government shutdown.“We worked with our federal partners, TSA, when they indicated to us that there were some issues with the number of TSA officers who were on duty for us to be able to fully staff all seven security checkpoints at Bush,” Bill Begley, the public information officer for the Houston Airport System, told Houston Matters. “Terminal B in terms of volume was the obvious choice.”Begley said that about 2,300 passengers typically pass through the security lanes at Terminal B. “When you compare that to the 35,000 or so that go through security lines on a daily basis at Bush, that was the one that had the least amount of impact,” he said.Flights scheduled to depart from Terminal B, which houses United Airlines, are still operating normally, and passengers are being re-directed to go through TSA checkpoints at Terminals C and E.Terminal B’s checkpoint closed Sunday, January 13 at 3:30 pm and was initially scheduled to reopen Monday morning, according to a release from IAH. But Begley says the decision to reopen Terminal B’s security checkpoint will be based on a day-to-day assessment. “If TSA sees numbers that allow them to fully staff efficiently all seven checkpoints they’ll let us know and we will adjust,” he said.The @TSA security checkpoint at Terminal B has been closed, and passengers will be routed to either Terminal C or E. if you have a flight, please allow extra time, and check https://t.co/a5cyZuGvqF for wait times. #fly2houston— Houston Bush Airport (@iah) January 13, 2019TSA agents are among the 800,000 government employees that have either been furloughed or are required to work without pay during the partial government shutdown, which at 24 days is currently the longest shutdown in the country’s history.As essential employees, TSA agents are required to work without pay. This has resulted in an increase in agents calling in sick to protest the shutdown. On Monday morning, 7.6 percent of TSA agents had unscheduled absences nationwide — up from 3.2 percent a year ago —  according to TSA.This morning, TSA experienced a national rate of 7.6 percent unscheduled absences compared to a 3.2 percent rate one year ago, Monday, January 15, 2018. Most importantly, security standards remain uncompromised at our nation’s airports.— Michael Bilello (@TSA_Bilello) January 14, 2019Miami International Airport also closed a terminal over the weekend, and security lines at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport were reported to be over an hour long on Monday.With Terminal B’s security checkpoint closed, airport officials — along with Mayor Turner — are encouraging people to arrive early to allow for possible longer wait times to get through security.Passengers can also view estimated wait times for each of the terminals online. Despite Terminal B being closed, as of Monday afternoon the average wait times for Terminal C and E were both under 10 minutes. X Listen Sharelast_img read more

Genetic algorithms can improve quantum simulations

first_imgFor the first time, researchers have used genetic algorithms to reduce quantum errors in digital quantum simulations. Credit: U. Las Heras et al. ©2016 American Physical Society 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. The content is provided for information purposes only. Now for the first time, researchers Urtzi Las Heras et al. at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain, have applied genetic algorithms to digital quantum simulations and shown that genetic algorithms can reduce quantum errors, and may even outperform existing optimization techniques. The research, which is published in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters, was led by Ikerbasque Prof. Enrique Solano and Dr. Mikel Sanz in the QUTIS group.In general, quantum simulations can provide a clearer picture of the dynamics of systems that are impossible to understand using conventional computers due to their high degree of complexity. Whereas computers calculate the behavior of these systems, quantum simulations approximate or “simulate” the behavior.As a quantum technology, digital quantum simulations face many of the same challenges that confront the quantum computing field in general. One such challenge is information loss due to decoherence, which occurs when a quantum system interacts with its environment. In order to protect quantum simulations against this loss, scientists use quantum error correction protocols, which provide a kind of back-up by storing information in entangled states of multiple qubits using quantum gates.Storing information in an entangled state is a highly complex undertaking in the context of quantum error correction. For a system with just 4 qubits and 7 gates, the number of possible gate arrangements climbs into the trillions. Optimization techniques are used to sift through all of these designs and find the architecture that minimizes the error. In the new study, the researchers demonstrated that genetic algorithms can identify gate designs for digital quantum simulations that outperform designs identified by standard optimization techniques, resulting in the lowest levels of digital quantum errors achieved so far. Citation: Genetic algorithms can improve quantum simulations (2016, June 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-06-genetic-algorithms-quantum-simulations.html © 2016 Phys.org Besides reducing errors due to decoherence, genetic algorithms can also reduce two other types of errors in digital quantum simulations. One type is the digital error created by the reduced number of steps used for approximating the algorithms. Another type of error arises from the imperfections in the construction of each of the gates. As the researchers explain, one reason why genetic algorithms perform so well is their adaptability. Just like natural selection adapts to changes in environmental conditions, genetic algorithms continually adapt to different constraints imposed by different quantum technologies. “Genetic algorithms are characterized by different features: adaptability and robustness,” Solano told Phys.org. “Their adaptability allows for a flexible and clever technique to solve different problems in different quantum technologies and platforms. The robustness of the algorithm yields solutions that are resilient against errors, which allows us to cancel different error sources. [Due to these characteristics,] our work provides a new flexible tool in quantum simulations that allows us to reduce the required physical resources while keeping the operation precision. It also reduces the total decoherence and digital error by seizing on the different unavoidable error sources to mutually cancel each other.”Genetic algorithms already have been used in a wide variety of applications, such as finding the most efficient electrical circuit design, finding the mirror orientation that focuses the maximum amount of sunlight onto a solar collector, and designing antennas that are optimally tuned for detecting specific types of signals.With help from genetic algorithms, future quantum simulations are expected to be useful for gaining a better understanding of complex physics, designing novel materials and chemicals, and solving problems in machine learning and artificial intelligence.”These techniques could be used to solve problems that require resources unaffordable for present and future digital quantum simulations and gate-based quantum computing, by reducing and optimizing them,” Solano said. “Also these techniques could easily decompose a problem into quantum gates adapted to different quantum platforms and quantum technologies. Finally, these techniques could also be applied to different problems in quantum computation and quantum information, such as the design of improved qubits, for instance. Needless to say, quantum simulations and quantum computing aim at the big picture: artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, design of new materials and chemicals, solving complex problems in aerodynamics, and quantum field theories, among many others.” Google combines two main quantum computing ideas in one computer Journal information: Physical Review Letters (Phys.org)—Inspired by natural selection and the concept of “survival of the fittest,” genetic algorithms are flexible optimization techniques that can find the best solution to a problem by repeatedly selecting for and breeding ever “fitter” generations of solutions.

Here are few things that will change the way we work for years to come.1. Less PowerPoint, more videoHow long have we been using the same program for client presentations and meetings? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Businesses are aware that consumers are demonstrating shorter attention spans and that if you don’t captivate them in less time, chances are you’ll lose their attention altogether. What to do? Video.Instead of presenting a bunch of boring, static presentations (usually 30 slides long), replace them with motion graphics. Something short, quick and to the point is more likely to leave a more lasting impression than 30 slides. Video is becoming the preferred presentation-medium, over images and infographics.Do you have a plan in place to replace your slides with video? If you don’t, look into all your options, and fast. You always want to be on the cutting edge of business and not get left behind. I’ve said this a thousand times before, but I think it’s worth repeating: “Adapt, change or die!”2. An emphasis on the ‘balance’ part in ‘work-life balance’We’ve all heard about the importance of work-life balance. While some people think corporations are “people,” I believe that people are people, and the heartbeat of your business. I’m a proponent of hard work and high rewards, but even the most workaholic individuals among us get tired and need a little breather. There’s no shame in that.With technology helping to eliminate barriers, more companies are delving into telecommuting and figuring out ways to make work easier and more meaningful. Basically, that means figuring out ways to work smarter. In fact, companies are using work-life balance as a recruiting tool to both attract ambitious people who want to move up the corporate ladder and to help drive change and inspire those who want to work and play hard.Related: What’s Next in Mobile Advertising? 6 Trends for the New Year.3. A de-emphasis on managersWell, don’t actually get rid of them, but do consider how the very nature of management has drastically changed in recent years. Leaders (or managers) used to be the people selected based on their experience and company loyalty. Today, however, those who lead organizations aren’t necessarily the ones who have spent the most time climbing the corporate ladder.With millennials set to dominate the workforce for the foreseeable future, leadership has had to evolve from managerial to inspirational and collaborative. The days of employee performance appraisals and performance management are going by the wayside — as is anything that creates tension among employees themselves or between employees and managers.The theme of today’s workforce is, instead, collaboration. As a result, management systems that provide feedback are being put in place in order to determine who will be the next class of leaders within the company. The corporate ladder is not as steep as it used to be. In its place is a more even-keeled playing field that will determine your company’s new environment and new set of leaders. Where does your company stand?4. The growth of social media for businessSure, we already use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn on a fairly regular basis for our daily business dealings — heck, even presidential candidates are using tools like SnapChat and Periscope to get their messages to the masses. There isn’t anything new there, but social media will continue to evolve and change the way we do business.For example, social messaging by apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger has found ways to engage with customers for marketing purposes.With analytics and other insights becoming more prominent within large and small companies alike, people who eat, live and breathe technology will continue finding ways to combine social media with business. The other day, for instance, I made an online purchase, and the next thing I knew, I got a message on Facebook Messenger asking about my experience on that shopping site, and offering me a link to track my package.Facebook Messenger has been busy testing such customer service features. And they’re working: I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to see that message pop up.I’ve already written how video is the next wave of change in business, but it’s so important that I’ll mention it again. Last year alone, Facebook surpassed YouTube in video views, with 8 billion — “billion” with a “b” — views. Twitter also launched native video and SnapChat reported 6 billion daily video views.Yet, despite the success of video on social media, many companies are still reluctant to get into the social video game for one main reason: cost. It can be expensive to produce a broadcast-quality video, and I get it, because not everyone has the budget for long videos. But how about shorter formats?Vines on Twitter and 15-second Instagram videos are the rage these days, and there’s also streaming via Meerkat or Periscope. I myself have Periscope’d right before doing my All Business with Jeffrey Hayzlett podcast and have received tons of questions and instant feedback from followers. Periscope, in fact, is a pretty cool way to stay in touch with your customers/followers.Considering that this is already big, imagine how much more all-encompassing this could get in 2016. Jump on the wagon now or get left behind!What changes are you looking to implement in your workplace in 2016? Whatever it is you’re looking to change, you must ride the waves of change now sweeping the business world. Otherwise, you might end up wiping out! And “wipe out” sounds so much better when the Beach Boys sing it. Related: 5 Reasons Businesses Should Focus on Creating Video Content 6 min readlast_img read more

Scientists Propose Training Mice To Detect Deepfakes

A trio of scientists has proposed using mice which have similar auditory systems to humans and can be trained to spot verbal inconsistencies from recorded speech.   ( Robert Owen-Wahl | Pixabay ) Scientists may have found an effective and inexpensive way to detect deepfakes, video and audio recordings generated through the use of artificial intelligence.At the Black Hat 2019 conference held in Las Vegas, a team from the University of Oregon’s Institute of Neuroscience claimed that they trained laboratory mice to identify irregularity in recorded speech, which could be a sign that the audio or video was manipulated.If true, the proposed system — albeit not convenient — could help sites such as Facebook and YouTube to detect deepfakes before they spread online. Wow facts 1Share this videoCopyPausePlay00:00% Buffered0PreviousPausePlayNextLive00:00 / 00:00UnmuteMuteExit fullscreenFullscreenCopy video urlPlay / PauseMute / UnmuteReport a problemLanguageBackMox PlayerDefaultEnglishEspañolУкраїнськаРусскийadvertisementHow Lab Mice Can Detect DeepfakesThe researchers explained that mice have an auditory system similar to humans. However, unlike humans, mice cannot understand speech.If an audio recording included a subtle mistake that most humans would simply gloss over, the mice trained to discern these inconsistencies would immediately notice.To test, the team taught lab mice the difference between “buh” and “guh” sounds across different contexts and surrounded by different vowels. Whenever the mice identified speech sounds correctly, they were given a reward.The researchers reported that the mice were able to distinguish different speech sounds with 80 percent accuracy.”And because they can learn this really complex problem of categorising different speech sounds, we think that it should be possible to train the mice to detect fake and real speech,” said Jonathan Saunders, one of the researchers, to the BBC.Studying Mice Can Help Fight DeepfakesSaunders and his colleagues do not expect to see an army of mice employed at Facebook and Google. While adorable, the researchers admitted that using mice for the sole purpose of searching for inconsistencies in recorded speech would not be practical. Instead, they hope that the study could help tech companies develop a more efficient way to detect manipulated audios and videos.”[S]tudying the computational mechanisms by which the mammalian auditory system detects fake audio could inform next-generation, generalizable algorithms for spoof detection,” the researchers wrote in a white paper.The proposal came at a time when deepfakes are increasingly becoming more ubiquitous and sophisticated. While most are still obviously manipulated, experts fear that deepfakes would become undetectable in the near future and will be used as a tool to spread false information.Ahead of the 2020 presidential elections, Rep. Adam Schiff, who heads the House Intelligence Committee, sent letters to Google, Facebook, and Twitter to ask the tech giants how they will deal with deepfakes.
