Reagan TD: Trevor Knight 60-yard pass to Austin Hays. Reagan leads New Braunfels 35-7, 4:34, 3rd.— mySA high schools (@mysahighschools) November 12, 2011Hays assured everyone they aren’t chatting football, but they do have a big group text (like all of us).“We don’t talk about football too much,” said Hays. “We normally talk about what concert we’re going to, where we’re going to go for spring break or who our partner is going to be for the golf scramble. Our spring break trip with the OU guys has changed our relationship with them. We became really close and are in a group text most of the time.”Personally, I love this. OU and OSU being good at football at the same time is awesome and college kids doing college kids things is fine by me. As long as we don’t see Daxx Garman in all black on OU’s sideline on Saturday this weekend feeding Mike Stoops signals, then who cares. There was a good story by Jake Trotter on ESPN today about the Bedlam off-the-field not rivalry.

Number of newcomers down 168 in September

first_imgClark County — Clark County welcomed 16.8 percent fewer new arrivals in September, compared with the same month last year, as measured by local driver’s license applications. According to the Washington Department of Licensing, 1,160 people traded in out-of-county driver’s licenses for local ones last month, about even with August’s 1,104 applications and down significantly from 1,394 Clark County licenses issued in September 2010. Statewide, there were 14.8 percent fewer driver’s licenses exchanged during September. Licensing data is considered a population indicator. Through September, driver’s license exchanges totaled 10,223 in Clark County, a 7.5 percent decline from 11,050 licenses issued during the same nine-month period in 2010.last_img read more

Genetic algorithms can improve quantum simulations

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.

Cotter McCready sponsor package reforming wage garnishment laws

first_img Categories: McCready News 18Sep Cotter, McCready sponsor package reforming wage garnishment laws Changes offer added protections to employees, employersThe Michigan House today passed a two-bill package to cut bureaucratic red tape involving the state’s wage garnishment laws and strengthen the overall economy, announced state Reps. Kevin Cotter and Mike McCready.House Bills 5390 and 5391 provide comprehensive wage garnishment reform, which will reduce administrative burdens on employers, compensate employers appropriately for administering garnishment and limit the liability of employers.“This legislation is about making sure Michigan’s workers, businesses—small and large alike—and creditors are treated fairly,” said Cotter, R-Mt. Pleasant. “I’ve talked to many small business owners, and they’ve told me how quickly they can become liable for another’s debt. It’s taken a lot of work to make this legislation a reality, but it is a common-sense reform we need.”HB 5390, sponsored by Cotter, makes a writ of garnishment of wages, salary, commissions or other earnings valid only if the writ is served on the garnishees in accordance with Michigan court rules.“We want to safeguard employers from wage situations that can escalate extremely quickly,” said McCready, R-Bloomfield Hills. “Any Michigan employer or small business that gets stuck with an employee’s substantial debt will have trouble getting back on its feet. We need to look after our economy’s recovery in big and small ways, so I’m glad to see this preventative legislation is being seriously considered.”HB 5391, sponsored by McCready, makes provisions that if an employer is ordered to pay any part of an employee’s debt, the employer will have the ability to deduct that amount from the employee’s regularly scheduled wage payments.HBs 5390 and 5391 now head to the Senate for consideration.###last_img read more
