Ottawa moves to lift alcohol trade restrictions urges provinces to do the

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government has introduced legislation that it says will remove a final federal barrier to the easier flow of beer, wine and spirits across provincial and territorial boundaries.Now, it says, it’s up to the provinces and territories to enact changes of their own that would allow for direct-to-consumer sales of alcohol across Canada.Internal Trade Minister Dominic LeBlanc says the legislation, once passed, will remove the federal requirement that alcohol moving from one province to another go through a provincial liquor authority.The issue has rankled consumers for decades and was forced under a media spotlight a year ago when a New Brunswick man lost a five-year court battle to buy cheap beer in neighbouring Quebec.The Supreme Court of Canada unanimously ruled last April that provincial and territorial governments have the authority to restrict imports of goods from other jurisdictions and that Canadians do not have a constitutional right to buy and freely transport alcohol across provincial and territorial borders.LeBlanc said Tuesday that Canadians have been frustrated by provincial and territorial trade restrictions for too long.He has proposed changes to the federal Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act that would aid lower levels of government in lifting those restrictions on the sale of Canadian beer, wine and spirits between provinces and territories. The changes are in the bill implementing the federal budget.“The proposed legislative amendments would remove the only remaining federal barrier to trade in alcohol, and the onus will be on provincial and territorial governments to change their own regulations, paving the way for direct-to-consumer alcohol sales from across Canada,” LeBlanc said in a statement.“Removing barriers to trade between provinces and territories fosters economic growth, reduces the regulatory burden on our small and medium-sized businesses, and creates good, middle-class jobs across the country.”Andrea Stairs, who manages eBay in Canada and Latin America, welcomed the federal move but said “the hard work now turns to provincial governments.”“Interprovincial trade of alcohol is an opportunity to unlock economic prosperity by enabling Canada’s (small and medium-sized businesses) to trade more freely,” she said in a statement.Shortly after last year’s Supreme Court ruling, the New Brunswick government indicated changes could be coming to the province’s liquor laws.But the province’s treasury-board president Roger Melanson, who is also the minister responsible for trade policy, also noted that regulation of the alcohol trade in New Brunswick brings tens of millions of dollars into provincial coffers annually — money that is redistributed to services including health care, education and infrastructure.The country’s premiers last summer announced an agreement in principle to lift limits on how much alcohol residents can buy for personal consumption and transport across boundaries.Alberta and Manitoba have eliminated cross-border alcohol sales limits entirely.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

PM Modi to interact with people from 500 places in Mani Bhi

first_imgNew Delhi: Intensifying his ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ (I too am a watchman) campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 31 will interact with people, who have pledged their support to the campaign, from 500 places across the country.Speaking at a press conference here, senior BJP leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the campaign has become a “people’s movement” as the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ hashtag has been tweeted 20 lakh times and had 1680 crore impressions. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’On Saturday, Modi on Twitter had urged his supporters to take the ‘main bhai chowkidar’ pledge, saying he is not alone in the fight against graft and social evils. BJP leaders, including its president Amit Shah and Union ministers, followed suit and later prefixed their name on the microblogging site with ‘chowkidar’ as they sought people’s support for the party in the Lok Sabha polls. Prasad said Modi will interact with people from different walks of life, including BJP leaders and allies, professionals and farmers, from some “field location” through video-conference. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KReplying to a question if the campaign was a counter to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s ‘chowkidar chor hai’ (watchman is thief) barb, he rejected the suggestion and asserted that Modi in his campaign for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls had projected himself as the “first servant” and ‘chowkidar’ of the country. Taking a dig at the Congress, Prasad said people, who are out on bail and are being investigated, have a problem with this campaign as they have a lot to hide. “If they have nothing to hide, then they should also join the campaign,” he said, describing the campaign as a “positive narrative” of the masses for a “corruption-free” India. Mocking Modi’s social media campaign, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had said, “Defensive tweet Mr Modi! You feeling a little guilty today” as he tagged a picture of the prime minister with fugitive businessmen such as Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi besides industrialists Anil Ambani and Gautam Adani.last_img read more

NBA making a longterm play in Africa

SALY, Senegal — Timothy Ighoefe is an intimidating defender at 6-foot-11 and 245 pounds. Still, the Nigerian knows he must improve if his decision to play basketball instead of soccer is going to pay off and take him to the NBA.The 18-year-old Ighoefe has committed to play for Patrick Ewing at Georgetown University next season, only three years after switching to basketball in his hometown of Lagos.“I need to work on my speed, running down the floor baseline to baseline,” Ighoefe said this week at the unveiling of a new training facility at the NBA’s African academy in Senegal. “My left hand, I need to improve, to finish with my left hand.”In other words, there’s potential but it’s a work in progress — just like Africa itself for the NBA.“It’s a continent with over a billion people, with a fast-growing economy, fast-growing young urban population. That’s a good recipe for the NBA long term,” said NBA deputy commissioner Mark Tatum, also in Senegal for the training facility opening.The NBA has big plans for Africa. An office was established eight years ago in South Africa. There’s an annual exhibition game featuring NBA stars.Now, the NBA’s top brass says Africa is ready for more. Tatum said they’re creating a pan-African league that will involve existing professional clubs, and that NBA pre-season and regular-season games will be held on the continent “in the next couple of years.”Another step is the new training centre, built on the campus of a soccer academy in a coastal resort town 45 miles south of the Senegalese capital Dakar. Saly, a former Portuguese trading post, is now a getaway spot for Dakar’s upper class and is home to many French people.The two parquet courts were imported from the United States. Simply being indoors and with air conditioning probably makes it the best basketball facility in Senegal. A fabric, tent-like covering is stitched together over steel trusses, and repurposed shipping containers facing the courts are used for weight training.The academy is one of seven around the world, with three of them in China. It features fulltime schooling and training. It can accommodate 24 boys selected from English- and French-speaking African countries. The NBA holds camps for elite African girls, but there’s no centre for them yet.“All you have to do here is just focus on basketball and school,” Ighoefe said. “You don’t have to be worried about anything else. In Lagos, it’s different. There are a lot of distractions.”The teenage boys begin their days with a light workout at 5:30 a.m. Then it’s breakfast, school, lunch, school, gym. They’re coached by former NBA and NCAA players and have travelled to Australia, Europe and the United States for tournaments.Amadou Gallo Fall, NBA vice-president and managing director for Africa, said the NBA is building from the grassroots, like the Jr. NBA programs expanding across the continent.“We are only scratching the surface,” said Fall, a Senegal native who founded the nearby SEED Academy, which works closely with the NBA’s African operation. “We are empowering young people through basketball and in the process elite talent is going come out and get into the NBA, and also feed other leagues across the world, and our future league on the continent.”This season began with 13 African-born players on NBA rosters.Tatum said details of the pan-African league will be announced within months. It will involve co-operation from FIBA and existing professional leagues, he said.“We’re trying to find a way to do it quickly, to be able to work with some of those leagues, to work with our partner FIBA, to get something up and running sooner rather than later,” Tatum said.Africa lacks good infrastructure, but Tatum cited the new Dakar Arena, as well as Rwanda’s plan for a new facility, as incentive for the NBA to bring games here. He called the Dakar Arena a “world-class facility” but wouldn’t confirm the Senegalese sports minister’s announcement moments earlier that it would host the NBA exhibition game next year.South Africa hosted the first three NBA Africa exhibitions but West African countries like Senegal and Nigeria appear more eager to embrace basketball.Soccer is by far the most popular sport in Africa. The likes of Liverpool and Barcelona boast fan clubs all over the continent, and the European start times make it easier to watch live.Ighoefe catches highlights of his favourite player, Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers, on the mornings after games. He watches on YouTube and follows the Cameroonian star on Instagram.African kids can play soccer with just a ball and any bit of space, even a street. But finding a basketball court, even just a cement half-court and a rim, is hard.Ibrahima Ndiaye, director of Flying Star academy in Dakar, which has produced several NCAA Division 1 players, said the NBA can dramatically increase youth participation by building courts — a lot of them.“That’s what is needed here in Africa to develop basketball in all neighbourhoods,” Ndiaye said in a phone interview. “We need more and more usable infrastructure. It’s the only way to increase the number of kids who practice.”China is a huge success for the NBA, so it’s often compared to the league’s initiatives in Africa.“We’ve been in China for 30 years,” Tatum said, adding some perspective. “We opened up our office here on the continent, in South Africa, only eight years ago.”Tatum said that figure of 13 African players on NBA starting rosters could double within a decade.“For us,” he said, “it’s a long-term investment and long-term play.”___More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsKen Maguire, The Associated Press read more

Volleyball Buckeyes sweep Northwestern in home opener

OSU freshman defensive specialist Camry Halm (14) dives for a ball during a game against Northwestern University on Sept. 28 at St. John Arena in Columbus, Ohio. OSU won 3-0. Credit: Ross Tamburro | Lantern PhotographerIt’s been 297 days since the Ohio State women’s volleyball team last saw the floor at St. John Arena. Tonight marked the first home game for the Buckeyes and another win, improving to 11-4 on the season. No. 19 OSU swept Big Ten foe Northwestern in three sets during the Buckeyes’ home opener at St. John Arena, on Wednesday. A different combination of Buckeye players worked together in the match due to sophomore outside hitter Audra Appold sitting out with an illness. The change in lineup, however, wasn’t enough to derail OSU. A kill by senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe scored the first point of the first set, and from there, the momentum continued for the OSU squad. The Buckeyes jumped out to an early lead and were able to battle off several Northwestern rallies. Junior outside hitter Luisa Schirmer finished the final ball to win the set, 25-21. OSU kept the points coming in the second set, leading by double digits for the latter half. The Buckeyes dominated play, holding the Wildcats to only twelve points. Northwestern may have been down 0-2 in the match, but it showed in the third set, they weren’t giving up easily. The Wildcats led OSU from the beginning, as the Buckeyes would try to inch their way out of the hole for almost the entire set. With the Wildcats leading 20-16, it looked like match play might be pushed into a fourth set. OSU coach Geoff Carlston took the opportunity for a timeout to refocus his team. Immediately after, Schirmer put down a kill, followed by two more OSU points to cut the deficit to one. From there, it would be a point-for-point battle to the finish. When the dust cleared, it was OSU who would celebrate with a 28-26 set and match win. The Buckeyes held the Wildcats to an .085 attacking efficiency. OSU also dominated Northwestern’s blocking game, more than doubling their total team blocks, 7.5 to 3.0. It was freshman Madison Smeathers who would lead the team in hitting percentage with .500. Sandbothe and Schirmer also contributed 13 kills each. The countdown is on for senior libero Valeria León, who racked up another 22 digs against the Wildcats. With 1,497 total career digs, she is within fingertip-length of the record, currently held by Stacey Gordon with 1,572. Carlston said he was proud of the way his team responded to the pressure from Northwestern, especially in the final points of the match. “Northwestern did some things to stress us out,” he said. “I thought we did a nice job, especially in that third set, to lock in and play really well like what we needed to, to win in three.”Some Buckeye players expressed their happiness to finally be able to play in the gym they call home, even if it’s only for a moment. For Sandbothe, the match was her last “first” home game. “It was definitely bittersweet,” Sandbothe said. “The fans came out and seeing all the little girls and just having this opportunity to be on our home court, representing Ohio State is an amazing opportunity.” On the other end of the spectrum, tonight was freshman outside hitter Brooke Bailey’s first time playing in front of a home crowd as a Buckeye. “We’ve been away a lot in preseason and our first Big 10 games were away, so it was really exciting to be home,” Bailey said. The team will need the momentum from tonight’s win into their battle later in the week against defending national champions, No. 1, undefeated, Nebraska. The team mentioned what they will be thinking about over the next few days in preparation for the match. For veteran Sandbothe, the devil is in the details.“Just weighing the serve and pass game is going to be really important for us,” Sandbothe said. “I think we match up offensively and physically with every team, so just focusing on the little things.” Bailey said for the team, it’s about staying high and positive from tonight’s much-needed victory.“We’re just going to try to bring our energy from tonight into the weekend, and just keep going after it and staying aggressive,” she said. OSU will face the Cornhuskers on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. in Lincoln, Nebraska. read more

Football Billy Prices similar decision approaching could turn OSU Oline into nations

OSU redshirt junior offensive linemen Billy Price (54) and redshirt senior Pat Elflein (65) celebrate OSU redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber’s (25) second half touchdown against MSU on Nov. 19. The Buckeyes won 17-16. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorBeing a top-tier program in college football, Ohio State under coach Urban Meyer has championed the recruiting trail, making it easier to reload rather than rebuild. The Buckeyes’ offensive line returned just two starters this season, yet has been the force in front of the nation’s ninth-best rushing attack.At this time last year, it was clear to many that Meyer would lose a few of the would-be NFL talents on his roster. However, Meyer received a somewhat surprising pledge from then-redshirt junior offensive lineman Pat Elflein to return to the program for his final season.Elflein has been the soulful, experienced voice of OSU this season that has led the Buckeyes (11-1) to their second playoff appearance in three seasons. On his right shoulder on every snap of the ball is redshirt junior guard Billy Price, who has a similar decision at season’s end.But Price’s return to the program wouldn’t symbolize stability on an inexperienced group, rather it could continue OSU’s mark a dominant force up front in 2017.Price was named a second-team All-American by five different organizations and a first-team All American by the American Football Coaches’ Association. He joined Elflein as the second Buckeye offensive lineman this season to receive first-team honors. Price said if he had it his way, his place in Buckeye Grove, which sits south of Ohio Stadium, would be right next to Elflein.“Buckeye Grove will be blessed to have those two names on it,” Meyer said. “When I’m an old guy, I’ll come back and see my two guys because I love them, and they are great. They are the backbone of who we are and what we do. Zero probability that Ohio State’s where we are without them. On top of that, they’re as good of people as you’ll ever find. Great students, great people, and exceptional leaders.”Elflein’s presence on a young offensive line has undisputedly been the most impactful, but has certainly overshadowed what Price means to the unit. After all, Price was there in 2014, like Elflein, as a first-year starter playing in the national championship game. He was there in 2015 suffering a crippling defeat against Michigan State.Price said Elflein is a gifted athlete and deserves every accolade he receives, including the possibility of another national championship to his record. The same argument could be made for Price.“I was here when we won the national championship a couple years ago and (Price and Elflein) have the experience of actually playing in that game, what it’s like and what it takes to get there,” said junior left tackle Jamarco Jones. “I was a freshman. I was still getting my feet wet and didn’t know what was going on as much. Those guys actually did it so having them on the line is just a tremendous help.”For now, Price isn’t answering questions about whether he will forgo his final season of eligibility. Elflein said he has had talks with Price about his situation and its similarity to his predicament following the 2015-16 season, including the possibility of switching to center.If Price comes back and switches positions, he would be one of four returning starters on the offensive line, including Jones, who has steadily become one of the best left tackles in the country. Redshirt freshman Branden Bowen, redshirt sophomore Brady Taylor and freshman Tyler Gerald have been talked about highly as replacements waiting in the wings. Redshirt junior Malcolm Pridgeon, who redshirted this season due to a knee injury, will also return vying for a starting position.Oh, and that’s not to mention five-star incoming-freshman offensive linemen Josh Myers and Wyatt Davis joining the Scarlet and Gray in 2017.Price is already comfortable with the leadership role. He said he deleted Twitter off redshirt freshman tackle Isaiah Prince’s phone following the loss to Penn State where Prince was at fault for a large part of OSU’s 11 tackles for loss and six sacks allowed.Price said he still carries lessons from his redshirt freshman year when he struggled his redshirt and the offensive line leaders, Taylor Decker and Jacoby Boren, taught him how to go about business and ignore distractions. If Price returns for his last season in Columbus and mirrors Elflein’s consistently dominant production, the Buckeye offensive line has all-star potential, which starts with Price’s leadership.“You’ve never been told you suck because you’re in high school and you’re around your hometown and people love you,” he said. “But once you come here, the truth comes out. You got beat, you lost. Just get better. That’s what it comes down to.” read more

The EU isnt banning refillable jugs of olive oil after all

first_imgTHE EUROPEAN COMMISSION has abandoned its proposal to ban restaurants from serving olive oil in refillable jugs, after coming under widespread criticism for the plan.Agriculture commissioner Dacian Ciolos took to a regular media podium to perform a U-turn that spawned a string of Twitter gags and reaction, but stuck to his line that restaurateurs are potentially misleading customers by pouring cheap or old oil into containers presented as new.“We want to avoid consumers being tricked,” said Ciolos of the rationale behind the decision announced last week, after a committee of agricultural experts failed to muster the required qualified majority in favour.But Ciolos added: “Since Friday, I have seen and heard… strong views expressed by … consumers.”He said he now recognised that the ban was “not formulated in such a way as to assemble widespread support.“As a consequence, I am withdrawing the proposition.”Olive oil-producing countries from the southern Mediterranean were in favour of tightening the regulations to ensure oil was clearly labelled, whereas northern European countries – who tend to be the consumers of the product – were against the plan.Ciolos said he would now put producers, traders, restaurateurs and diners “round the same table” in a bid to “find a better way.”Asked why he had not attempted to apply similar restrictions on wine in eateries, the Romanian Commissioner said:I have rarely found an open bottle of wine served on my table.Scottish MEP Alyn Smith, a member of the European Parliament committee tasked with monitoring this policy area, tweeted that the “olive oil proposal was, after all, virgin on the ridiculous.”- © AFP, 2013Read: The EU is banning refillable bottles of olive oillast_img read more

Trivialities of the reformed Seanad Senators talking about AllIreland tickets and seagulls

first_img 44 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3184982 Jan 15th 2017, 12:00 PM THE 2013 REFERENDUM to abolish Seanad Éireann was flatly rejected by the people of Ireland. Why? We can only speculate but I am confident that few, if any, voters would vote to keep the outdated and ineffective upper house we operate in today.Sadly the upper house is still being used as a resting place for many Dáil Éireann hopefuls. Every day, the “Order of Business” is subjected to impassioned speeches where Senators congratulate their “constituency” on some event or other. CommencementDebates are used by many Senators to question or lobby ministers on some pressing “constituency” issue rather than issues pertaining to the vocational panel they represent. What constituency are these speakers referring to? Are members of Seanad Éireann confused as to who or what they represent?Senators acting like County CouncillorsApart from the six members of the University Panel who were elected by a specific constituency, no other member of the upper house can lay claim to any specific geographic constituency. Senators are elected to vocational panels and not a geographic area. Yet too many members of the upper house try to ensure they act as they would were they elected as a Dáil Deputy or worse still to act as a City or County Councillor.In order to represent a vocational panel a candidate for a Seanad election is required to be suitably qualified. However these qualifications are vague or non-specific, allowing for widescale abuse over they years.The five vocational panels (Agricultural, Administration, Cultural and Education, Industrial and Commercial and Labour) that account for 43 Seanad seats have been hijacked by the party political system to serve the needs of the political parties themselves.A worthwhile exercise to support this view would be an examination of the websites or business cards of members of the upper house. Many members have been appointed by their political party as the Seanad spokesperson on some area, which is directly aligned to a Government Ministry.The upper house divides into a Government and Opposition. Why? To ensure that the Seanad replicates the Dáil as closely as possible, nurturing the party’s up and coming hopefuls, or providing a safe resting place for those currently out of favour with the Dáil electorate.Imagine a reformed SeanadImagine a Seanad where candidates for election would have to publish a CV and prove they were fully qualified under a strict criteria to run for the appropriate panels. A Seanad that truly examined legislation, national and EU, and truly held the Government of the day to account.Imagine a “full” chamber listening to qualified experts from “vocational panels” debate the pros and cons of a Bill or EU Directive. Imagine vocational experts debating and swaying the opinions of the 60 members to ensure that legislation when passed was best suited to its purpose and the citizens of this country. What a change that would be. Imagine if a Seanad where people voted based on the outcome of a debate and not on the orders of the party whip.Trivialities of a dysfunctional chamber Senator David Norris at the counting of votes in the referendums on the future of the Seanad and the establishment of a new Court of Appeal. Source: Niall CarsonMembers of the Seanad frequently complain of a lack of interest from the media in the upper house. Why would the media cover anything but the trivialities that emerge in this dysfunctional chamber? Senators talking about their entitlements to All-Ireland tickets and discussing seagulls are all too easy clickbait for online news.There has, however, been a few changes since the last election. The Government majority is gone and as such Ministers must now work with Senators in order to get their legislation through. It is within this space there is finally, albeit painstakingly, an opportunity for reform.Improving the democracy of the SeanadThere is legislation on the structural changes to how we elect our Senators that has already been put before the Seanad, and there will undoubtedly be major differences on some of the substantive elements in that Bill, but it is at least the start of much needed legislative basis for reform. Perhaps there will shortly be an opportunity for a referendum to remove the Taoiseach’s eleven nominees to the Seanad, further improving the democracy of the upper house.Independents and other members of the Seanad, who advocate its reform, cannot now rest on their laurels waiting for the Reform Bill to pass. The numerical makeup of the current house presents real opportunities for Senators to show their mettle now and bring about real reform in how the house does its business.Brexit negotiations – an opportunity to make a differenceBrexit is one such opportunity where the Seanad can demonstrate to the Irish people that voting for its retention was a worthwhile democratic expression. Over the next few months, the Seanad has agreed to come together and develop an all-member inquiry into how to best represent Ireland’s interests in Brexit negotiations.The House of Lords in its all-party report said that the UK needs a separate bilateral trade agreement with Ireland. The question is will that be what Ireland needs? What form Brexit will take is not something the Irish government can answer, let alone the Seanad, but how best we can position ourselves certainly is.Northern Ireland, food, fisheries and finance areas where some work has begun on but what about education, research and health? There are few areas of the Irish economy and society that will be left untouched by Brexit and it is my hope that in 2017 the Seanad can work for the Irish people and make tangible rather than trivial differences to their lives.Gerard Craughwell was one of the first ever independent Senators elected to the Seanad. Prior to his election to the Seanad, Gerard was a teacher in Further Education working in Dun Laoghaire. He was elected President of the Teachers’ Union of Ireland in 2012 and held that post until 2014. Upon his election to the Seanad he was obliged to take a career break from his teaching post. He was re-elected to the Seanad in 2016, on the Labour Panel.Staff ‘weeping’ over plans to temporarily rehouse Seanad in wing of National Museum>Not happy – Fine Gael senators have been giving out about All Ireland tickets… again> Trivialities of the ‘reformed’ Seanad: ‘Senators talking about All-Ireland tickets and seagulls’ Voters chose by a narrow margin in a referendum in 2013 to retain the Seanad.

Cairn Indias Q3 profit tanks 99 on cheaper oil prices

first_imgHit by a slump in global crude oil prices, Cairn India, the subsidiary of Vedanta Group, reported a 99% drop in its net profit to Rs 9 crore for the December quarter.Falling oil prices also dragged its revenue down by 42% to Rs.2,039 crore in the October-December quarter compared to the same period a year ago, according to a statement released by the company on Friday.The company had initiated various measures like renegotiating with vendor and improving operational efficiencies to cut costs in the quarter. Despite these efforts, the price for the oil produced by Cairn at its Rajasthan fields fell sharply to $34.5 a barrel against $68 a barrel in third quarter of previous fiscal year.Global crude oil prices have more than halved in the past one year on account of excess supply.”To ensure timely investment decision in Rajasthan block and realise fair price for our crude, we have approached the High Court to expedite the Production Sharing Contract (PSC) extension process and allow us to export the crude. The matters are subjudice,” the statement said.Mayank Ashar, Managing Director and CEO of Cairn India, said that the world’s largest enhanced oil recovery (EOR) project at Mangala in Rajasthan is yielding results. The project led to 19,000 barrels per day of additional production in the quarter.”Our unwavering commitment to improve cost efficiency continues to help us to navigate through the weak oil price situation and to generate free cash flow. We are continuously engaging with the Government to take actions to support the oil & gas industry in such a low oil price environment,” Ashar said.On merger of the company with its parent, Vedanta Ltd, the company said that “it is seeking directions of the Bombay High Court for convening meeting of all our relevant stakeholders.”last_img read more

Worlds Largest Quantum Bell Test Spans Three Swiss Towns

first_img“There is quite a large community of physicists that speculates on possible connections between quantum gravity and the measurement problem,” coauthor Hugo Zbinden told PhysOrg.com. “The advantage of the Penrose-Diosi model is that it is testable using today’s technology.” In the physicists’ experiment, the detection of each photon by a single-photon detector triggers a voltage to a piezoelectric actuator. The actuator expands, which in turn causes a tiny gold-surfaced mirror to move. By measuring the mirror displacement, the researchers could confirm by the gravity-quantum connection that the quantum measurement had been successfully finished.All of the steps – from photon detection to mirror movement – take about 7.1 microseconds, which is significantly less than the 60 microseconds it would take a photon to cover the 18 km between interferometers. So measurements made simultaneously at each of the interferometers could not be been influenced by anything traveling at – or even a few times more than – the speed of light.“The significance of our experiment lies entirely in achieving space-like separation, even under the assumption that a quantum measurement is only finished after a macroscopic mass has moved, as in the Penrose-Diosi model,” Zbinden explained.Altogether, the experiment serves to fill a loophole by ruling out any kind of communication between two entangled particles separated by a distance, provided the collapse happens only after a mass has moved. By spatially separating the entangled photons, the test once again confirms the nonlocal nature of quantum correlations. More information: Salart, D.; Baas, A.; van Houwelingen, J. A.

All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of PhysOrg.com. In an attempt to rule out any kind of communication between entangled particles, physicists from the University of Geneva have sent two entangled photons traveling to different towns located 18 km apart – the longest distance for this type of quantum measurement. The distance enabled the physicists to completely finish performing their quantum measurements at each detector before any information could have time to travel between the two towns.

The content is provided for information purposes only. Many other experiments have observed quantum nonlocality – the “spooky interaction at a distance” that occurs between two entangled particles – and also known as a violation of Bell inequalities. But, as physicists Daniel Salart, et al., explain in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters, these Bell tests might not have gone far enough. If quantum measurements aren’t finished until after a mass has moved (as the team assumes here), then the Bell violations in previous tests might merely have been due to some type of classical communication between particles unknown to today’s physics.In their experiment, the physicists sent pairs of entangled photons from Geneva through optical fibers leading to interferometers in two other Swiss towns: Satigny and Jussy, located 8.2 and 10.7 km away, respectively. The distance between the interferometers in Satigny and Jussy was 18 km. With this large distance between the interferometers, the physicists could perform a more complete quantum measurement than has previously been done. Somewhat surprisingly, physicists have never decided exactly when a quantum measurement is finished (when the “collapse” occurs, if there is any). Different interpretations of quantum mechanics lead to different answers. The most common view is that a quantum measurement is finished as soon as the photons are absorbed by detectors. Previous experiments have been set up to allow enough distance between particle detectors to prohibit communication under this view. But there are also other views of when the measurement is finished, including “when the result is secured in a classical system,” “when the information is in the environment,” or even that it is never over – a view that leads to the many worlds interpretation.The Swiss team followed a view proposed independently by Penrose and Diosi, which assumes a connection between quantum measurements and gravity, and requires a macroscopic mass to be moved. In this view, the measurement takes more time than it does for a photon to be absorbed by a detector. The significance of the Swiss test is that it is the first “space-like separated” Bell test under the Penrose-Diosi assumption.

This distance enabled the space-like separation necessary for finishing a quantum measurement in each town, which required a macroscopic mass to move. Detection of the mass’ movement was completed before information could have traveled between the two towns. Credit: D. Salart, et al.last_img read more

University runs contest for students to convert gay people in Malaysia

first_imgFrom the country that brought you ‘how to spot a gay’ checklist, comes a competition for university students to try and convert their gay classmates. In February last year, Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) released a video explaining how LGBTI people could change their sexuality.The video said it was like learning to ride a horse and if a LGBTI person wanted to become heterosexual they should receive training and guidance.It suggested people should marry the opposite gender or to subdue sexual desires by refusing to eat.Trans people also don’t have it much better when it comes to conversion therapy. The state of Terengganu will run official ‘courses’ to help trans women find a ‘path to make the best choices for their lives’.The lives of LGBTI people in Penang is a mixed bag. Openly gay movies movies have been banned from screening there and last year a teenage boy died from his injuries after a homophobic bashing.But a group of local politicians are trying to make laws to protect the rights of trans people in Penang.Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) A competition to convert gay students was run at a Malaysian university. | Photo: Facebook/Universiti Sains Malaysia Malaysian newspaper publishes ‘how to spot a gay’ checklistMalaysia has started blocking access to HIV and LGBTI websitesWhat is happening to LGBTI rights in Malaysia?Read the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/university-runs-contest-students-convert-gay-people-malaysia/center_img The Muslim Students’ Association at the Universiti Sains Malaysia on the island of Penang ran the competition as a part of ‘Back to Fitrah’ forum. The competition had the approval of university authorities.Back to Fitrah refers to living in the ‘primordial essence’ of faith as a Muslim.One of the forum organizers, Abdul Hadi Radzi, told NBC News they wanted to ‘reach out to LGBT’ people. He said the association ‘loves’ LGBT people and ‘we want to help’ them.‘We are trying to educate people. This is our view to correct LGBT. Not to persecute. Not to condemn them,’ he said.‘The LGBT community is brave enough to do their programs openly. We don’t want more people to get involved with them.’Homosexuality and transgenderism is illegal in Malaysia, where the community faces a lot of violence and persecution.Malaysian trans advocacy group, Justice for Sisters, said it was ‘extremely concerned by the overall harmful impact’ of the competition.‘Such programmes create a toxic and unsafe environment for all students and staff, LGBTI and gender diverse persons in particular, and run counter to the aim of such institutions that are supposed to provide an open learning environment for all,’ the group said in a statement.Malaysia and conversion therapyThe university competition’s posters featured the Malaysian Department of Education’s seal. Last year another government department also endorsed gay conversion therapy. GAYSTARNEWS- Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…last_img read more

Strong as Steel Forge by Jon Land Jon Lands

first_img “Strong as Steel” (Forge), by Jon LandJon Land’s insubordinate, trigger-happy Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong is back again in another action-packed thriller in “Strong as Steel.”This is the sort of thing you might get if Dr. Frankenstein sewed John Wayne’s head onto Wonder Woman’s body, gave the fearsome creature an unlimited supply of bullets and dropped it into “The Da Vinci Code.” In the first 40 pages, the following events unfold in rapid succession:A freighter with a crew of dead men smashes into a dock at the Turkish Port of Ordu. A bride and groom are gunned down at a drug cartel wedding in Mexico. A team of assassins wipes out the crew of a railroad train in Texas and swipes three crates from a freight car. Caitlin’s lover, reformed criminal Cort Wesley Masters, single-handedly rescues a Homeland Security operative on the brink of execution in Venezuela. And Caitlin, with only her sidearm, outguns a team of professional mercenaries armed with automatic weapons and RPGs.All of this, it turns out later, has something to do with the bubonic plague, a secret religious order that employs violence to protect the one true faith and a stone ossuary that may or may not contain the bones of Jesus Christ.By the novel’s conclusion, Land manages to pull these disparate elements together.For the uninitiated, Caitlin is a fifth-generation Texas Ranger. As always in this series, the plot has links to an old case investigated by one of her ancestors, and the cartoonish portrayals of violence resemble what might happen if Quentin Tarantino and Marvel’s creator of Venom got wasted on cocaine and put their heads together.In addition to Caitlin and Masters, returning characters include Masters’ son Dylan, Caitlin’s often exasperated commander D.W. Tepper, a mysterious Homeland Security agent known only as Jones, and a former South American death squad thug who has become Caitlin’s guardian angel.Land’s fans are in for another wild ride.___Bruce DeSilva, winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award, is the author of the Mulligan crime novels including “The Dread Line.”___Online:https://www.jonlandbooks.com/http://www.brucedesilva.com/Bruce Desilva, The Associated Press by Bruce Desilva, The Associated Press Posted Apr 22, 2019 9:05 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email This cover image released by Forge shows “Strong As Steel,” by Jon Land.
