Hockey royalty shows up in force to pay tribute to legendary Leaf

first_imgTORONTO – Fans and a Who’s Who of hockey remembered Johnny Bower as a great goaltender and a better man Wednesday.NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and Hall of Famers Yvan Cournoyer, Red Kelly, Frank Mahovlich, Darryl Sittler and Doug Gilmour were just some of the hockey elite on hand for what was billed as a celebration of the legendary goalie who died Dec. 26 at the age of 93 after a bout of pneumonia.Coach Mike Babcock and the entire current Toronto lineup watched from the Air Canada Centre floor. Four generations of Bowers including Nancy, Johnny’s wife of 69 years, were also front and centre.Fans, many in Leaf jerseys, sat in the lower bowl and chanted “Go Leafs Go” when prompted by Bower’s grandson John Bower III.They heard stories about a family man who loved to laugh — especially at himself — a humble guy who knew the value of a buck, doted on animals and always worked tirelessly for others.A Canadian who lied about his age so he could enlist in the Second World War. A booster of female hockey. An honorary member of the Union of Ontario Indians with the name of “Johnny With a Heart as Big as an Eagle’s Wingspan Bower.”A five-foot-nine man with a huge heart who became synonymous with the Maple Leaf after a winding 13-year journey to becoming an NHL regular. Bower was 34 before he was Toronto’s starting goalie.In 12 years, he built a Hall of Fame career that include two Vezina Trophies and four Stanley Cups before he retired at the age of 45 after just one game in the 1969-70 season.“His road to the Maple Leafs and the four Cups was much bumpier, much harder and much longer than many of us,” said teammate Dave Keon. “And yet, he became the centrepiece of our team.“Winning the Cup takes heart, but John was our soul.”A blue and white casket with the Maple Leaf logo stood in front of the dais. Bower’s banner, which normally hangs in the rafters, was displayed behind the podium between the banners denoting the four Stanley Cups he won in the 1960s.Team members wore buttons with JB etched on the Leafs logo.Leafs president Brendan Shanahan said Bower was a player respected by teammates and opponents alike.“Generous, soft-spoken, warm and welcoming. I’m sure Johnny had an ego but he didn’t show it. There was no entitlement in Johnny Bower,” said Shanahan.Keon reminded listeners that prior to Bobby Baun scoring his storied overtime winner on a broken ankle in Game 6 of the 1963–64 Stanley Cup final, Bower had made a key save early in the third period to keep it a one-goal game.Toronto tied it up and then won it on Baun’s goal.“In sports as in life everyone remembers the heroic moment, in this case an overtime goal,” Keon said. “But only teammates remember the save that got us to overtime. That save as much as the goal, if not more, brought us back to Toronto where John shut out the Wings 4-0 to win our third Cup in a row.”Teammates Ron Ellis and Mahovlich also spoke at the memorial.Immediately prior to the event, current Leafs centre Tyler Bozak said Bower represented “what a Maple Leaf is” and talked of how he used to quiz him about how he played without a mask night after night.“He’d act like it was nothing. That’s the crazy part about it,” he recalled with a laugh. “None of us could even come close to comparing to anything that he went through as a player.”Morgan Rielly recalled the care with which Bower use to sign autographs, unlike other players who might cut corners“He took time for every person, for every kid, every fan,” said the 23-year-old defenceman. “He made sure they got what they were looking for.”Former captain Darryl Sittler recalled how competitive Bower was, even when retired, when he dressed for practice.“He didn’t want a puck in the back of his net,” he said.Keon also recalled one day after practice when his 10-year-old son took shots on Bower, who let the first puck in but then stopped the rest.“I let him have one Davey, because he’s your son,” Keon said Bower told him later. “But one was all he was going to get.”Bower, who became known as the China Wall, was happily playing in the minors in Cleveland when he was picked up by Toronto almost 50 years ago. He said he only showed up to avoid being suspended for not reporting.Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1976, Bower’s No. 1 was raised to the rafters in Maple Leafs Gardens in 1995 and permanently retired in 2016 when he was voted the seventh best Leaf of all time in the franchise’s centennial season.The Leafs, in their first game at home since Bower’s passing, wore jerseys with Bower’s name and No. 1, during warmups prior to Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Four generations of Bowers including Nancy, his wife of 69 years, accompanied by Leaf greats watched a pre-game tribute from ice-level that drew a prolonged standing ovation.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitterlast_img read more

Presidents Surgite Award caps a stellar career for Goodman grad

Though he received two dozen other awards and scholarships during his time at Brock University, winning the President’s Surgite Award was the icing on the cake for Goodman School of Business graduate Thomas Francescutti (BBA ’16).Francescutti, who graduated this year with an average of more than 90 per cent, was one of only 10 recipients of the prestigious award that recognizes a student’s leadership and impact on Brock’s academic reputation and student life.As a St. Catharines native he grew up being well aware of Brock, and was already looking forward to attending Goodman by the time he was in high school. When he was accepted into Brock, Francescutti received substantial financial incentives to help him get started in Goodman’s Business Administration program.“I wanted to go to a school that I would be proud to have on my resume and that would allow me to have confidence going into interviews,” he said recently.The all-round high achiever thinks his secret to success was a personal leadership philosophy of acting in both a bold and sustainable fashion. He was also not afraid to try different things, and during his Brock years Francescutti was involved with the Brock Marketing Association at Goodman, the Goodman Student Ambassador Association and the Brock Finance and Investment Group at Goodman. he also volunteered as a senior mentor for the co-op programs office. A highlight came when he was selected to represent Goodman at the Beta Gamma Sigma Global Leadership Summit in Orlando.“My philosophy helped me develop my leadership skills and it allowed me to become more innovative and creative, essentially leading to my full-time position before I was even done school,” he said.Francescutti worked at Mondelez International for nearly two years before moving to his current role at PepsiCo Canada.“One of the reasons I chose Brock was that it seemed like the University was willing to help those few top individuals progress, and I thought, ‘If they are willing to do this for me now and they don’t even know me, what are they going to do for me when they know what I can do, and I’ve been able to prove myself to them?’ “ read more

Column Tigers Tour Championship win changes conversation

NASSAU, Bahamas — The first stop is Sam Snead and his 82 career PGA Tour victories.The ultimate stop is Jack Nicklaus and his 18 majors, the gold standard in golf.Both milestones are now in play for Tiger Woods, which is not to suggest they are within reach. That they are at least a topic of conversation is a victory in itself considering it took four back surgeries — the last one to fuse his lower spine — for Woods to even compete again.And then he took hopes to another level by winning the Tour Championship for his 80th career tour victory.“I know I can win tournaments again,” Woods said Tuesday.His next chance is at the Hero World Challenge this week, an unofficial event that counts only in the world ranking, his bank account and his confidence. More curious is what Woods will do in 2019 and for how much longer.He turns 43 at the end of the year, and with age comes a dose of practical thinking.His expectations are high by his standards. Given the level of attention he draws, the expectations of everyone around him are sure to be much higher. He was asked if he was close to having the same expectations he did 15 years ago.“It’s not the same. It never will be. I’ll never feel that again,” he said. “To be what, 28 years old? Physically, I’ll never be like that. So expectations are different than they used to be, for sure. Now, can I still win? Can I still compete? Yes. Can I do it for the next 20 years? No. Because that’s not realistic.”Indeed, his expectations at the peak of his career were far different.“Just win. Win everything,” he said. “Because I felt like I could.”And now he knows he can win again, a process that took two weeks short of a full year.It began in early October a year ago when he posted a short video of a slow, full swing that was the first sign he could return. He was No. 1,199 in the world ranking when he played his holiday event in the Bahamas last year. He twice had a chance to win on the back nine in Florida. He had the lead on Sunday in a major at Carnoustie, and he challenged Brooks Koepka to the finish at Bellerive in the PGA Championship. He went from being a vice captain to a captain’s pick in the Ryder Cup.Woods returns to the Bahamas at No. 13 in the world, which on paper sounds more amazing than it really is because he was so low in the ranking from having played so little that he essentially was starting from scratch. There was no way to go but up.Woods can’t call this his best year because he had 11 years of at least five victories and nine years with at least one major through 2008, when he won his 14th major at Torrey Pines on a left leg that required season-ending surgery after the U.S. Open.But it was special, measured beyond victories.“Probably the most rewarding, because there was a point … I just didn’t know if I would ever do this again,” he said. “You always hear me say, ‘It’s a process.’ But if you look at this entire year, it literally was a process. You saw me have flashes, and then I would rework a few things here and there. Toward the end of the year, I just became more and more consistent as a tournament player again.”It culminated at East Lake, when he beat Justin Rose and then Rory McIlroy in the final group over the last two days to win the Tour Championship.That was the moment that mattered.And then the moment was gone. Never has a victory this big had a shelf life so short.Woods was in Paris the next day as all the attention shifted to the Ryder Cup, which ended with a European victory and Woods failing to win a match. He says he was exhausted from a long summer. Woods qualified for the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone at the last minute, meaning he played seven big tournaments in a span of nine weeks, all of them in stifling heat except for Paris.Winning didn’t really sink in until he returned home to Florida and was given a surprise celebration party at his restaurant. He said it has become “our Jupiter tradition,” celebrating victories for PGA Tour players when they win.“Finally, they get to celebrate one of my wins,” he said.The next one?The first step is figuring out where to play. Woods is eligible for the winners-only start to the year at Kapalua, which is a possibility. He might end up dropping a tournament or two in the spring because of the crowded calendar. Three of the majors are on courses where he has won before — Augusta National, Bethpage Black (PGA Championship) and Pebble Beach (U.S. Open).There will be talk of catching Snead and resuming the chase of Nicklaus, all because of one win that a year ago didn’t seem likely.Doug Ferguson, The Associated Press read more

Steve Ballmer promises Windows Phone 75 Mango will have over 500 new

first_imgEver since Microsoft announced that “Mango” would actually be Windows Phone 7.5 and a much larger feature update than previously anticipated, we’ve all wondered what Windows Phone owners would have in store when the update is finally released. Steve Ballmer let a few details fly in a speech at the Japanese 2011 Microsoft Developer Forum, saying that the update will include 500 new features. He also advised developers to stick around: tomorrow at the show the company plans to unveil new WP7 devices.We’ve seen a few previews of what’s to come in Windows Phone 7 over the past couple of months. At the MIX 11 conference, developers showed off enhanced multitasking and hardware access for developers. At the same show, they also previewed developer tools, like private apps and betas. Earlier this month, we learned that Windows Phone 7.5 will also get Bing integration and Windows Live Messenger Support, as well as Facebook and AIM chat, visual voicemail, and support for SkyDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage service.AdChoices广告The features list is racking up nicely, but that hardly adds up to 500. It’s likely that a large number of those new features will be tweaks and changes to existing functions branded as new, and minor changes that may be transparent to many users. Ballmer didn’t list any of the new features during his speech, so we’ll have to wait until Microsoft releases more information. He did, however, point out that new Windows Phone 7.5 devices would be available in Japan later this year, which gives us a loose timeframe for when we can expect to see Mango in the wild.Ballmer also noted that this week would also see the launch of several new Windows Phone 7 devices, and many of them would be on display at the Developer Forum. Mango development tools will also be made available to members of the Windows Phone Developer Program by the end of the week.Read more at WMPowerUser, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Samsung unveils Galaxy Tab 7 Plus with HSPA and Android 32

first_imgSamsung has pretty much all screen sizes covered when it comes to Android devices, from 4-inch phones to its 5-inch phoneblet, right up to the 7.7,  8.9, and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab models. Not wanting the world to think it had given up on the original Galaxy Tab’s 7-inch design, Samsung has officially outed a successor to the first carrier-bound Android tablet that enjoyed appreciable consumer success.Meet the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It has matured quite a bit, now featuring a 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos dual-core processor and a full gigabyte of RAM. Unlike the Galaxy Tab 7.7, 8.9, and 10.1, the 7.0 Plus uses a PLS LCD touchscreen that offers 768×1024 pixel resolution. There’s a more pedestrian 3 megapixel rear-facing camera (with LED flash), though the front-facing camera still packs a 2 megapixel sensor. The 7.0 Plus will come in 16GB and 32GB flavors (both with microSD expansion). 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are built in, and it’s ready for use on GSM and HSPA networks. Android 3.2 and Samsung’s custom TouchWiz UX are also on board.In addition to a lower-resolution camera and display, Samsung has opted to equip the 7.0 Plus with a substantially smaller battery. Whereas the 7.7 packs 5100mAh, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus only offers 4100mAh. While no official pricing has been revealed, these three features might indicate that Samsung is positioning the 7.0 Plus as a low cost Android tablet option for wireless carriers. Based on how reactions have been to $500-plus tablet announcements, you’ve got to believe people are expecting more budget-friendly options.Now someone just has to deliver. Maybe that someone is Samsung, and maybe the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will offer consumers a bargain-priced HSPA-ready option when they go looking for a tablet to take home. Austria and Indonesia will get the first Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus units next month, with a global rollout to follow.More at Samsunglast_img read more

Michelle Mulherin We need to look at murder sentencing Our law isnt

first_img Short URL I am calling on the government to implement the Law Reform Commission’s Report on mandatory sentences as a matter of urgency. This report from 2013 recommends that where an offender is convicted of murder, and is therefore sentenced to life imprisonment, legislation should provide that the judge may recommend a minimum term to be served by the offender.I believe that we need to give judges stronger powers when it comes to sentencing murderers. They should be allowed to set sentences that are proportionate to the seriousness of the crime.The sentencing powers of judges are a crude instrument. Once the life sentence has been imposed, the duration of imprisonment is effectively out of the judges’ hands.A life sentence shouldn’t mean an early release Share18 Tweet Email Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article https://jrnl.ie/3111842 Senator Michelle Mulherin Source: Shutterstock/corgarashuAs the law currently stands here, a sentence of life imprisonment means that the prisoner is subject to that sentence for the rest of his or her life. A prisoner serving a life sentence has no right to be released early at any stage.That said the reality of the situation is that after a mere seven years in prison, the prisoner begins the parole process, essentially charting their path to freedom.Currently a person sentenced to life imprisonment in Ireland is, on average, likely to spend 18 and a half years in prison before receiving any extended period of temporary release.The Parole Board advises the Minister for Justice and Equality on the administration of longterm prison sentences. This includes advising the Minister on progress to date, the degree to which there has been engagement with the various therapeutic services and how best to proceed with the future management and administration of the sentence.This process is not solely concerned with the release of a prisoner.We need a tougher approach to sentencingThe Programme for Government lays the ground for implementing a tougher sentencing approach for offenders, but I believe that we need to look very closely at what constitutes a life sentence. The Government has been making strident progress in law reform, for example strengthening the law on repeat offenders.Allowing judges to set minimum terms once a life sentence has been imposed would help give the families of victims some solace in the knowledge that the perpetrators of these heinous acts go to prison for a very long time.Fine Gael is strengthening the rights of victims of crime and their families, through implementation of the EU Victims’ Directive and providing for a right of access for victims to information and protection.We need also to end any ambiguity in relation to life sentences, which would further help victims and their families move on with their lives.I believe that for society to function properly we need sentences that reflect the gravity of the crime. This will keep violent offenders off our streets and act as a deterrent to others.Michelle Mulherin is a Fine Gael Senator.‘Seven years seems like a lot – for us it’s nothing’: Murder victim’s brother welcomes parole reform>Irish law around suspended sentences ruled unconstitutional> Dec 2nd 2016, 1:00 PM center_img 51 Comments Friday 2 Dec 2016, 1:00 PM By Senator Michelle Mulherin Michelle Mulherin: ‘We need to look at murder sentencing. Our law isn’t fit for purpose’ The Law Reform Commission’s Report on mandatory sentences needs to be implemented urgently, writes Senator Michelle Mulherin. THIS CHRISTMAS SEES the eighth anniversary of the deaths of Sharon Whelan and her daughters Zsara and Nadia. They were murdered in their home in Kilkenny on Christmas day 2008 by Brian Hennessy.Hennessy, who was convicted of the three murders, had his three life sentences reduced to a single life sentence on foot of an uncontested appeal. Hennessy was able to begin his parole process earlier this year after 7 years in prison and is eligible for release after 12 years.Law isn’t fit for purposeTo me, this does not reflect the gravity of his actions in violently extinguishing the lives of a mother and her two children. It could be said that the law in this instance is not fit for purpose. 811 Views last_img read more

Manger des fraises pour prévenir les ulcères de lestomac

first_imgManger des fraises pour prévenir les ulcères de l’estomacSelon une nouvelle étude menée par des chercheurs européens, la consommation de fraises protègerait la muqueuse de l’estomac contre d’éventuelles inflammations liées à l’alcool. Manger des fraises fraiches permet non seulement de prévenir les ulcères à l’estomac mais également de soigner ceux déjà formés. C’est du moins ce qu’ont constaté, au cours de leurs travaux des chercheurs italiens, serbes et espagnols qui ont observé que les antioxydants contenus dans ces fruits offraient une protection idéale à la muqueuse gastrique contre d’éventuels dommages causés par la prise d’alcool. À lire aussiLa bactérie du cancer de l’estomac bientôt éradiquée en Amérique Latine ? Pour en arriver à une telle conclusion, les scientifiques ont administré une dose d’éthanol à deux groupes de rats dont l’un avait été nourri au préalable avec des extraits de fraises pendant dix jours et l’autre non. Les résultats publiés dans la revue américaine PLoS ONE montrent une réduction considérable d’inflammations de la paroi stomacale chez les rongeurs ayant consommé préalablement les fruits. Selon les chercheurs, les bienfaits de la fraise seraient liés essentiellement à sa composition riche en antioxydants qui permettrait non seulement de protéger l’estomac mais également d’activer les défenses immunitaires de l’organisme. Un régime incluant une portion régulière de ces fruits permettrait donc de ralentir la formation d’ulcères liés à l’ingestion de boissons alcoolisées ou plus important encore à des infections virales. L’équipe s’attache donc désormais à tenter de développer d’éventuelles applications pharmaceutiques tels que de nouveaux traitements contre des inflammations de l’estomac.

Study finds football deadliest sport among youth athletes

first_imgNEW YORK — Researchers who analyzed 30 years of sports deaths among youths found that football accounted for 57 percent of fatalities blamed on blunt-force trauma. Many would have been prevented if athletes with head injuries had been kept off the field.The report, which reviewed information from a U.S. registry of sudden deaths of young athletes from 1980 to 2009, found that 261 deaths were caused by blunt trauma. The study, published Monday in the journal of Pediatrics, analyzed data on fatal injuries that occurred during 22 different sports.Twelve percent of the 138 football deaths caused by head or neck injuries involved students who returned to the game after a concussion, researchers said. In some of these “second-impact syndrome” deaths, athletes were cleared for play despite symptoms from a previous head injury. More education is needed for coaches, trainers, parents and students on the consequences of repeat head blows, the researchers said in the report.The deaths analyzed in the report occurred among those younger than 21 and involved scholastic sports teams as well as those in youth sports leagues not affiliated with schools. All the second-impact football deaths occurred among high school athletes, according to the report.Increased awareness of second-impact syndrome among football players has led 21 states to enact laws that pull student athletes from a game after a head injury and set procedures for allowing them to safely return, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.last_img read more

North Korea warns foreign embassies to evacuate as tensions rise

first_imgMOSCOW – North Korea asked Russia and other states to consider evacuating their diplomats from the capital as tensions mount with its southern neighbor, warning that embassies can’t be protected in the event of a conflict.A North Korean Foreign Ministry official met Russian Ambassador Alexander Timonin Friday to deliver the message, said Denis Samsonov, a spokesman for the embassy in Pyongyang. The British Embassy was told by the Asian nation’s government Friday that it won’t be able to guarantee the safety of foreign missions starting April 10 if a conflict flares up, the Foreign Office in London said in an emailed statement.Russia is “alarmed” by the tensions on the Korean peninsula and is in “close contact” with the United States, China, Japan and South Korea over the proposal to empty diplomatic missions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, according to a statement on the ministry’s website. Russia also sought clarification from the government in Pyongyang, he said.A crisis is escalating after the communist nation threatened to wage nuclear war on the U.S. and South Korea. Kim Jong Un’s regime warned this week that “the moment of explosion is approaching soon” and said it’s poised to conduct a “smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike.” North Korea also has moved a missile to its eastern coast rocket-launch site, possibly for test-firing, according to South Korea’s defense minister.The North Korean initiative was prompted by “the escalating situation” in the region, the Russian diplomat in Pyongyang said, adding that there were no tensions currently in the capital city.last_img read more

Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg faces subpoena in Canada over fake news

first_imgFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg faces a subpoena from a Canadian Parliament committee. James Martin A Canadian Parliament committee on Tuesday voted unanimously to issue a subpoena calling for appearances from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg. The Facebook executives were invited to appear before the International Grand Committee on Big Data, Privacy and Democracy in Ottawa on May 28, but neither responded. Zuckerberg also ignored requests to address a Canadian committee looking into election meddling and disinformation on Facebook.The subpoena can only be enforced if Zuckerberg and Sandberg go to Canada.”Our committee feels strongly that Mark Zuckerberg and his COO Sheryl Sandberg have a duty to appear before the International Grand Committee on Big Data, Privacy and Democracy and answer questions from lawmakers representing over 372 million citizens worldwide,” Bob Zimmer, chair of Canada’s Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics, said in a statement. If Zuckerberg and Sandberg don’t respond to the subpoena or refuse to appear before the committee, the committee will “submit to the full Parliament a motion to hold them in contempt,” Zimmer told CBS News. (Editor’s note: CNET is owned by CBS.)”Over the last year, we have participated in numerous meetings and hearings with government bodies around the world,” a Facebook representative said Thursday. “We will work with the Committee to ensure Facebook is appropriately represented at the May 28 meeting.”Last year, Zuckerberg testified before Congress following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which data from as many as 87 million Facebook users was improperly shared with the political consultancy. $299 at Amazon Facebook’s Zuckerberg preaches ‘The future is private’ Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity.

Indian Air Force to pick 10 astronauts for Gaganyaan Mission ISRO chief

first_imgThe GSLV Mk III before launchISRO via TwitterThe Indian Air force has started looking for the 10 potential crew members for the country’s first ever manned space mission codenamed Gaganyaan project. The final three astronauts among the ten shortlisted candidates will be chosen by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). ISRO Chairman K Sivan told The Times of India that the IAF will “screen and select 10 potential crew members for the country’s first manned space mission in two months”.Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced India’s ambitious first manned flight Gaganyaan before 2022. The mission aimed at sending a three-person crew to space for a period of seven days. The spacecraft will be placed in a low earth orbit of 300-400 km. The programme is expected to cost less than Rs 10,000 crore.”We have an agreement with the IAF for crew training at Isro’s Human Space Flight Centre in Bengaluru. IAF will screen around 10 crew members for the mission. This screening and selection will happen within one to two months. Isro will finally choose three members from these 10 crew members for the human spaceflight mission,” the ISRO chief said. ISRO’s most powerful launcher ever, GSLV Mk-III being rolled out from the Vehicle Assembly building to the launch pad for its experimental flight.IANS FileThis year in May, the Indian Air Force (IAF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for astronaut selection and training for ambitious Gaganyaan Programme, scheduled for 2022. Moreover, the first meeting of the national advisory council (NAC) was also convened which witnessed the participation of all organisations and institutes involved in the Gaganyaan project participated. Taking another lead forward, ISRO also tested CE-20 engine, meant for the upper stage of human-rated GSLV MK-III, the engine which will take the Indian astronauts to space.Sivan further added “In the NAC meet on June 8, Air Vice-Marshal R G K Kapoor, assistant chief of air staff operations (space), Rear Admiral DS Gujral, assistant chief of naval staff, Defence Research and Development Organisation director G Satheesh Reddy, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited chairman and managing director R Madhavan and veterans of different institutes attended the meeting. All these agencies will play crucial roles in the mission. While the IAF will handle crew selection and training, DRDO will provide the life support system for crew and Navy will help in recovering the human capsule once it re-enters the atmosphere and splashes down in the sea.”last_img read more

TwoHeaded Sharks Are Freaky And Researchers Are Seeing More

first_img Watch: Seagull Devours Baby Shark on New Jersey BeachBeached Shark Stuns Families Walking Near Oregon Shore If two-headed sharks look and sound bizarre to you, unfortunately, it’s something you may want to get used to. Not only are they real, but they’re becoming more and more ubiquitous, according to researchers.National Geographic published a piece a couple of days ago on November 5th stating that two-headed sharks are, in fact, real, and there are a whole lot more of them discovered here and there. Many seem to be relegated to embryos or infant sharks, but there have been several recorded instances of adolescent sharks as well.The blue shark seems to be the species most likely to spawn two-headed offspring because female blue sharks can carry up to 50 babies at once. Unfortunately, there’s not much to explain the phenomenon further beyond overfishing being a cause of some genetic abnormalities such as these bizarre two-headed beasts.AdChoices广告This isn’t a new trend, however. It seems it can all be tied back to 2008, when a fisherman caught a two-headed blue shark embryo while fishing off the coast of Australia, and the instances sort of spiraled out of control from there. Following that incident, a group of fishermen in Florida in 2013 gutted a Bull shark to find a two-headed shark fetus in its uterus.It seems that the shark population is dwindling down, and that means the gene pool is shrinking as well. This gives way to a higher risk of genetic abnormalities, like one-eyed sharks or the two-headed creatures we’ve been seeing so much of lately.Of course, there are those who say this isn’t a growing trend at all: Dr. Felipe Galván-Magaña, for instance. The rising numbers of two-headed sharks reflect, in his opinion, the fact that there are simply new and more numerous scientific journals to publish these findings in.Whatever the case may be that’s bringing us more of these unfortunate abnormalities; one thing’s for sure: they sure are creepy.

Spacetime May Have Fractal Properties on a Quantum Scale

Spacetime May Have Fractal Properties on a Quantum Scale

first_img“In simple words, the relation between quantum groups and noncommutative geometry is as follows,” he explained. “Classically, we know that certain spaces are invariant under the action of some classical groups; for example, Euclidean space is invariant under rotations and translations. A quantum group is a deformation of a given classical group, and is such that no classical space can have it as a symmetry group. The invariant space has to be as well a deformation of a classical space, a deformation that makes it noncommutative. No relation of all this to fractals is known, but in my work I’ve found that they do have a common property, that is, a non-integer dimension (at some scale).”Compared to a Euclidean sphere, a quantum sphere’s curvature and uncertainty make it a noncommutative space. When calculating the spectral dimension of the quantum sphere, Benedetti found that it closely resembles a standard sphere on large scales; however, as the scale decreases, the dimensions of the quantum sphere deviate and go down to zero. He describes this phenomenon as a signature of the fuzziness, or uncertainty, of the quantum sphere, and also as resulting from fractal behavior at small scales.In the second kind of space, k-Minkowski spacetime, the dimensions also deviate from the constant behavior of classical Minkowski spacetime. While the latter always has four dimensions, independent of the scale, the number of dimensions in the quantum version decreases to three as a function of the scale. In both k-Minkowski spacetime and the quantum sphere, the dimensionality becomes non-integral, which is a typical signature of fractal geometry.Benedetti’s results match previous approaches to quantum gravity, which also point to the emergence of a ground-scale spacetime with fractal properties. Together, these studies may help scientists understand the unique Planck scale properties of spacetime, and possibly tie in to a quantum theory of gravity. For instance, as Benedetti explains, the fractal nature of quantum spacetime might enable gravity to cure its own ultraviolet behavior by dimensional reduction. “The main problem with gravity is that apparently it cannot be quantized as other field theories; in jargon it is said to be non-renormalizable,” he said. “This problem is specific to four-dimensional spacetime. If spacetime had only two dimensions, then quantum gravity would be much simpler and treatable. The problem with a two-dimensional theory is that it is unphysical, as we see four dimensions at our scales. Things can be solved combining four and two dimensions at different scales. That is, if gravity itself provides a mechanism by which the dimension of spacetime depends on the scale at which we probe it (four at our and larger scales and two at very short scales), then we could have a physical theory (compatible with observations) that is free of quantum (short scale) troubles.”More information: Benedetti, Dario. “Fractal Properties of Quantum Spacetime.” Physical Review Letters 102, 111303 (2009).Copyright 2009 PhysOrg.com.

In a recent study, Dario Benedetti, a physicist at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, has investigated two possible examples of spacetime with scale-dependent dimensions deviating from classical values at short scales. More than being just an interesting idea, this phenomenon might provide insight into a quantum theory of relativity, which also has been suggested to have scale-dependent dimensions. Benedetti’s study is published in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.“It is an old idea in quantum gravity that at short scales spacetime might appear foamy, fuzzy, fractal or similar,” Benedetti told PhysOrg.com. “In my work, I suggest that quantum groups are a valid candidate for the description of such a quantum spacetime. Furthermore, computing the spectral dimension, I provide for the first time a link between quantum groups/noncommutative geometries and apparently unrelated approaches to quantum gravity, such as Causal Dynamical Triangulations and Exact Renormalization Group. And establishing links between different topics is often one of the best ways we have to understand such topics.”In his study, Benedetti explains that a spacetime with quantum group symmetry has in general a scale-dependent dimension. Unlike classical groups, which act on commutative spaces, quantum groups act on nocommutative spaces (e.g. where xy doesn’t equal yx), which emerges through their unique curvature and quantum uncertainty. Here, Benedetti considers two types of spacetime with quantum group symmetry – a quantum sphere and k-Minkowski spacetime – and calculates their dimensions. In both spaces, the dimensions have fractal properties at small scales, and only reach classical values at large scales. Generally Speaking: A Primer on General Relativity As scale decreases, the number of dimensions of k-Minkowski spacetime (red line), which is an example of a space with quantum group symmetry, decreases from four to three. In contrast, classical Minkowski spacetime (blue line) is four-dimensional on all scales. This finding suggests that quantum groups are a valid candidate for the description of a quantum spacetime, and may have connections with a theory of quantum gravity.

Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Usually, we think of spacetime as being four-dimensional, with three dimensions of space and one dimension of time. However, this Euclidean perspective is just one of many possible multi-dimensional varieties of spacetime. For instance, string theory predicts the existence of extra dimensions – six, seven, even 20 or more. As physicists often explain, it’s impossible to visualize these extra dimensions; they exist primarily to satisfy mathematical equations.last_img read more
