Jaipur/New Delhi: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said India remained “firmly committed” to the doctrine of ‘no first use’ for nuclear weapons but what happens in future depends on the circumstances. The defence minister said this on Twitter after visiting Pokhran where India carried out nuclear tests in 1998 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the prime minister. “Pokhran is the area which witnessed Atal Ji’s firm resolve to make India a nuclear power and yet remain firmly committed to the doctrine of ‘No First Use’. India has strictly adhered to this doctrine. What happens in future depends on the circumstances,” Singh said.

The nation will remain indebted to the greatness of Atal Ji,” he said in a tweet. Earlier in the day, Singh attended the concluding ceremony of the fifth International Army Scouts Masters Competition in Jaisalmer.
OTTAWA – Whining and crying might not be anything new on Parliament Hill, but it took on a new context today during question period.The high-pitched voice that briefly echoed through the House of Commons belonged not to a sitting member, but three-month-old Ulysses, perched on the knee of his father, Bloc Quebecois MPs Xavier Barsalou-Duval.Barsalou-Duval is married to Bloc colleague Marilene Gill, the first-ever pair of sitting MPs to become parents.The infant’s plaintive voice could be heard clearly as the end of question period drew near.Babies have become more common in the House in recent years; little Ulysses is only the latest to enter the political limelight.In the 1980s, then-MP Sheila Copps broke ground simply by bringing her baby daughter into the members’ lobby, behind the gold Commons curtains.By the late 1990s, Michelle Dockrill had become the first MP to bring her young son into the chamber, holding him as she stood to vote.In 2012, Sana Hassainia, then an NDP MP, thought she had been urged to leave her seat in the House just ahead of a vote because she had her infant son with her, although that was dismissed as a misunderstanding and she was told her son was welcome.
Canadian dollar closes lower following disappointing durable goods orders data by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 26, 2013 8:51 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar continued to weaken Monday but was well off session lows as the latest reading on U.S. durable goods orders raised doubts about whether the U.S. Federal Reserve could start to relax its economic stimulus this year.The loonie was 0.02 of a cent lower at 95.21 cents US, adding to a slide of almost 1.5 cents US last week.Traders think there is a good chance that the Fed will start cutting back on its US$85 billion of monthly bond purchases, a move that has kept long-term borrowing rates low and supported a strong rally on many stock markets this year.But the Fed has been clear that it would only taper its asset purchases if economic conditions allow and on Monday, traders took in a steep drop in durable goods orders.The U.S. Commerce Department reported that orders fell by a much greater than expected 7.3 per cent. Economists had expected a drop of almost four per cent. The showing followed a 3.9 per cent rise in June thanks in part to strong airplane orders.Data released Friday had showed a drop in new home sales, raising questions about the strength of the recovery in the U.S. housing market. That led to speculation that the Fed might stick with its current monetary stimulus or only reduce it very gradually.On the commodity markets, oil prices were slightly lower with the October crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange down 50 cents to US$105.92 a barrel.September copper declined three cents to US$3.32 a pound while December gold faded $2.70 to US$1,393.10 an ounce.Bond yields have risen since May when Fed chairman Ben Bernanke first mentioned that the central bank could start to taper its asset purchases.The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury has surged about 120 basis points since May to as high as 2.94 per cent last week, although yields have retraced some of that run-up. On Monday, the yield for the 10-year Treasury declined slightly after the durable goods data was released and stood at 2.79 per cent, down about 0.03 of a point from Friday.Later in the week, traders will look to the latest growth figures from Canada and the U.S.On Friday, Statistics Canada releases figures for gross domestic product growth in June and the second quarter. Economists expect the data to show GDP contracted 0.5 per cent during the month, in part because of severe flooding in Alberta and a construction sector strike in Quebec.Stronger growth data is expected from the U.S. The second reading on second-quarter GDP growth comes out on Thursday and economists expect the data to show the economy advanced about two per cent in the second quarter, up from the original reading of 1.7 per cent.
Un paraplégique retrouve l’usage d’une main grâce à une opérationDes chirurgiens américains ont réussi à rendre l’usage d’une main à un patient paralysé suite à un accident. Pour cela, ils ont utilisé une toute nouvelle technique consistant à “rebrancher” des nerfs entre eux.C’est un véritable espoir pour tous les paralysés. Parue aux Etats-Unis, une étude décrit une intervention chirurgicale réalisée chez un paraplégique de 71 ans qui avait subi un accident de voiture deux ans plus tôt. Au cours de celle-ci, les chirurgiens sont parvenus à rendre l’usage d’une de ses mains à ce patient en adoptant une technique innovante : ils ont attaché un nerf qui ne fonctionnait plus à un nerf encore actif. Ont ainsi été raccordés le nerf permettant le pincement entre le pouce et l’index et le nerf permettant le mouvement de l’épaule.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Très souvent, les patients disent qu’ils aimeraient être capables de faire des choses très simples. Si l’on peut restaurer la capacité de pincer, entre le pouce et l’index, cela peut faire revenir une sorte d’indépendance très basique”, explique le Dr Ida K Fox de la Washington University School of Medicine de St Louis citée par le Daily Mail. Or, après huit mois de rééducation, l’homme opéré commençait à bouger les doigts. Plusieurs mois plus tard, il était en mesure de se nourrir seul et même d’écrire avec un peu d’aide, précisent les médecins menée lors de l’opération par le Dr Susan E. Mackinnon.Ceux-ci soulignent également que cette technique n’est ni onéreuse ni particulièrement complexe. Néanmoins, l’intervention a été menée suite à une blessure de la 7ème vertèbre cervicale (C7). Il est ainsi probable que les résultats auraient été beaucoup moins encourageants chez une personne blessée à un étage supérieur (entre C1 et C6) ou atteinte plus sévèrement. Ici, l’opération a été possible car les nerfs étaient toujours fonctionnels et reliés à la moelle épinière, le problème étant qu’ils ne pouvaient plus “parler” au cerveau à cause de la blessure qui bloquait les messages.Des résultats très prometteurs Ainsi, obtenir un tel résultat même deux ans après un accident est très positif, a fortiori chez une personne âgée et même si le retour de cette mobilité a nécessité plusieurs mois de rééducation intensive. “Cette opération expérimentale suscite l’espoir que des personnes ayant la même blessure à la colonne vertébrale pourraient bénéficier de la même intervention”, estime pour l’AFP le Dr Lewis Lane, chef de la chirurgie des mains à l’hôpital de l’Université North Shore à New York, qui n’a pas participé à cette intervention.Le 16 mai 2012 à 13:59 • Maxime Lambert

Jack Butland and Stoke City were relegated to the Championship after failing in their attempts to avoid the drop – and despite the goalkeeper is likely to leave now, he admitted that it is a terrible feeling.Butland came back after a series of injuries but he failed to help his side away from their troubles – and he admitted that it will be difficult to heal from this experience as it has been very tough lately for him.The England international spoke about his side’s relegation as he said, according to 101 Great Goals:“It’s been a tough two years but I’ll recover from it like I recover from anything.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“I have to suck up the bad stuff and process things quickly – the injury, losses, relegation – and mentally you have to move on quickly.”“Relegation hurts — even now just thinking about it, it’s a horrible feeling. But life goes on for all of us and we have to dust ourselves down, whether it’s the lads going to the World Cup or on holiday.”“We all have to accept what has happened and improve.”“It’s my nature to strive for the best and to keep pushing and that’s what I’ll continue to do whatever the future holds.”
Larsen Bay School (Photo by Mitch Borden, KMXT – Kodiak)The population of Larsen Bay has been decreasing for decades, and now it looks like the village could see its only school close for the first time in its history because of a lack of students. Many residents agree it has to do with the right to fish for salmon.Listen nowHolding bright yellow bags, students from Larsen Bay School run down the village’s dirt roads looking for trash. It’s the last day of school before summer break, and they’re spending it doing a spring cleanup.As the kids scramble around outside, it’s quiet back at the school. And there’s a good chance it’ll stay that way for the foreseeable future because, most likely, it won’t have enough students to open in the fall.“I’m sad I’m the last one, but I’m happy I’m graduating. So, I can move on to a different chapter.” Gayle Aga said. Aga was the only person to graduate high school this year in Larsen Bay and could be the last, which made her graduation a big event.“Everyone knew that I was going to be the last one till whenever, and a lot of people showed up and even people I didn’t even know,” Gayle said.Alice Aga, on the right, stands with Nicholas Blanco, a teacher at Larsen Bay School, and the students. (Photo by Mitch Borden/KMXT)“This is the gym. We just had graduation. It was awesome.” Alice Aga said as she walks through the building. She’s an aide at the school and is reflecting on how Larsen Bay used to be known for its sports teams, but now it’s ending the year with less than ten students. Alice points to past awards to show this.“Here’s the trophy case,” Alice said. “Like the 80s was the highlight of Larsen Bay —school that is. They were like basketball, volleyball, wrestling, you know, everything.”Until recently, Alice was the community’s mayor and sat on its tribal council. But now, she’s stepping down from those positions because she’s leaving.“Well you know if there’s no school here, I can’t stay,” Alice said. “I can’t play the waiting game. You know, like, I can’t home-school my kids, that’s a whole full-time job and I just can’t do that. You know, I need to make a living.”In Alaska, schools need at least ten students to receive around $300,000 in state funding, which Larsen Bay School needs to open. Right now, the school only has two kids officially enrolled for next year, which is why Alice is moving to Kodiak and enrolling her kids there, which makes her tear up.“I think I’m still in denial about the whole thing right now. I’ll probably…probably break down, you know, once I get to Kodiak,” Alice said. “It’s tough. This is home, our whole life is changing.”Even though Larsen Bay School isn’t officially closed yet, people around the community are doing the math and know it’s a long shot that they’ll have enough kids to open the school, which many see as another sign the community is shrinking.“The young people move away and the old people are dying.” Jack Wick chuckled. Wick has lived in Larsen Bay for decades and remembers when there were plenty of people living there and the main profession was commercial fishing. But he says that began to change in the 1970s.“Everybody fished. Even if you were a crewman you knew you could work your way up to be a skipper,” Wick said. “So, after limited entry, a lot of them realized they wouldn’t be able to get a boat”Alaska introduced limited entry permits in 1975, which is a policy that restricts the number of people who can commercially fish for salmon, and other fish. At its peak, only around ten Larsen Bay residents had permits to run boats, but now it’s down to less than half that because people left the village, sold their permits or their permits were canceled.In the Kodiak region, the price of a salmon permit has ranged anywhere between a few thousand to over a hundred thousand dollars. That price tag can make it hard for people to get into commercial fishing, which is why Wick and others in Larsen Bay believe this policy is partially to blame for Larsen Bay going from having around 200 people in the 80s, to about 60 full-time residents today.“The people in, like, Larsen Bay and other villages didn’t have the money to compete and buy the equipment to get into those fisheries,” Wick said. “So they just started getting into other things, going to school becoming something else other than fishermen.”The exodus of youth from Larsen Bay is causing some to worry the community’s becoming a “retirement village.” And that eventually, people will only come out in the summer for the fishing season or to vacation at local hunting lodges.The walls of Larsen Bay School are lined with the names of past students. These names follow you around the building as a reminder of all the people who’ve also passed through its halls. That sense of history isn’t lost on Gayle Aga as she thinks about the school’s future.“I just never thought it’d be closing because I didn’t think it’d be real,” Gayle said.That prospect is real though, but Gayle may not be around to see how the school closure will affect Larsen Bay in the long run. Like so many before her, Gayle’s planning to leave the village and head to college in the coming year.

screengrabThe Indian Army stationed at Siachen glaciers have to break their meals, which includes frozen juice, vegetables and eggs, everyday. At minus 50 degrees Celsius, the soldiers live and operate in some of the harshest conditions.In a video posted by the Indian Military Academy (IMA) Dehradun, three army officers posted at Siachen can be seen unpacking a frozen juice bottle and trying to defrost eggs that have become hard like a rock along with other vegetables due to the harsh climatic conditions.The video has gone viral on social media that shows the soldiers struggle to make the frozen food supplies usable at the high-altitude base. The soldiers can be seen trying to break the frozen juice with a Ghurkha knife and hammer. The soldier tells that the juice brick has to be heated up and melted in order to drink it. One of the soldiers throws the eggs at a solid slab but the egg does not break.Even though the video is fun to watch, it shows the extreme conditions through which a soldier in the glaciers have to fight not just with the enemy beyond the lines but also with Mother Nature herself to stay alive. Frostbites, avalanche, landslides are the other things the soldiers are fighting in their everyday life.Siachen, located in the eastern Karakoram Range of the great Himalayas, is the longest glacier in the Karakoram and second-longest in the world’s non-polar areas making it one of the coldest battlefields in the world. These are one of the most hostile terrains in the world where the Indian Army has posted its finest men to guard the nation with high spirit and valour.
The researchers, Rebecca Sainidou from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Jan Renger from the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), and coauthors from various institutes in Spain, have published their study on the new method for dielectric light enhancement in a recent issue of Nano Letters. As the scientists explain, one of the biggest problems for nanophotonic devices made of metal is that the metals in these devices absorb some light, limiting the overall light intensity. Here, the researchers proposed using dielectric rather than metallic structures, and described three different arrangements for achieving a large light enhancement: dielectric waveguides, dielectric particle arrays, and a hybrid of these two structures. In each of the three proposed arrangements, the researchers show that, by suppressing absorption losses, light energy can be piled up in resonant cavities to create extremely intense optical fields. “Metallic structures can produce a similar level of enhancement via localized plasmon excitation, but only over limited volumes extended a few nanometers in diameter,” coauthor Javier García de Abajo from CSIC told PhysOrg.com. “In contrast, our work involves a huge enhancement over large volumes, thus making optimum use of the supplied light energy for extended biosensing applications and nonlinear optics. In metallic structures, absorption can be a problem because of potential material damage and because it reduces the available optical energy in the region of enhancement. This type of problem is absent in our dielectric structures.“One could obtain large light intensity enhancement just by simply accumulating it from may sources (e.g., by placing the ends of many optical fibers near a common point in space, or by collecting light coming from many large-scale mirrors). But this sounds like wasting a lot of optical energy just to have an enhancement effect in a small region of space. However, this is essentially what metallic structures do to concentrate light in so-called optical hot-spots using plasmons. In contrast, our structures do not concentrate the light in tiny spaces: they amplify it over large volumes, and this has important applications. This amplification is done through the use of evanescent and amplifying optical waves, which do not transport energy, but can accumulate it.” Although theoretically there is no upper limit to the intensity enhancement that these structures can achieve, fabrication imperfections limit the enhancement to about 100,000 times that of the incident light intensity. In a proof-of-principle demonstration of the dielectric waveguide arrangement, the researchers showed a light intensity enhancement of a factor of 100. The researchers predict that this moderate enhancement should be easily improved by reducing the interface roughness through more careful fabrication, and are currently working on experiments to demonstrate a larger light enhancement.As the researchers explain, part of the “holy grail” of designing nanodevices for optical applications is the ability to control light enhancement, as well as light confinement and subwavelength light guiding. By demonstrating the possibility of achieving an extremely large light intensity in large volumes, the researchers have opened up new possibilities in many nanophotonics applications. For example, nanophotonics components have already been used to produce artificial magnetism, negative refraction, cloaking, and for biosensing.“Certain molecules are produced in our bodies preferentially when we suffer some illnesses (e.g., tumors, infections, etc.),” García de Abajo said. “The detection of these molecules can sometimes be a difficult task, because they are seldom encountered in minute concentrations. A practical way of detecting these molecules, and thus unveiling the potential illness to which they are associated, is by illuminating them and seeing how they scatter or absorb light (e.g., how light of different colors is absorbed by these molecules or how they change the color of the light). Therefore, it is important to amplify the optical signal that these molecules produce, so that we can have access to them even if they are in very low concentrations. Our structures do precisely that: they amplify the light over large volumes, so that if the molecules to be detected are placed inside those volumes, they will more easily produce the noted optical signal (absorption, color change, etc.). This is thus a practical way of detecting diseases such as cancer.“In a different direction, light amplification is useful to produce a nonlinear response to the external light, and this can be directly applied to process information encoded as optical signals. This is an ambitious goal that is needed to fabricate optical computers. Such computers are still far from reachable, but they are expected to produce a tremendous increase in the speed of computation and communication. Our structures provide an innovative way of using light in devices for information processing.” Citation: Extraordinary light enhancement technique proposed for nanophotonic devices (2010, November 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-11-extraordinary-technique-nanophotonic-devices.html Explore further More information: Rebecca Sainidou, et al. “Extraordinary All-Dielectric Light Enhancement over Large Volumes.” Nano Letters, ASAP. DOI: 10.1021/nl102270p Breakthrough in nano-optics: Researchers develop plasmonic amplifier (PhysOrg.com) — In a new study, scientists have shown that simply tailoring the nanoscale geometrical parameters of dielectric structures can result in an increase in the light intensity to unprecedented levels.

San Francisco will be the first city in the U.S. to ban the government from using facial recognition technology, if a legislation that was tabelled yesterday, stands approved. The ‘Stop Secret Oversight Ordinance’, will be proposed by Supervisor Aaron Peskin. The legislation seeks to do the following: Departments in the city will have to seek approval from the Board of Supervisors before using or buying surveillance technology The legislation would implement annual audits of surveillance technology in order to ensure that the tools involved are properly used. A blanket ban will be issued that stops departments from purchasing or using facial recognition technology. The legislation, which would also apply to law enforcement, will be heard in committee next month. It has already obtained support from civil rights groups like the ACLU of Northern California. The legislation also makes a strong point that ‘surveillance efforts have historically been used to intimidate and oppress certain communities and groups more than others, including those that are defined by a common race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, income level, sexual orientation, or political perspective. The propensity for facial recognition technology to endanger civil rights and civil liberties substantially outweighs its purported benefits, and the technology will exacerbate racial injustice and threaten our ability to live free of continuous government monitoring’. The news comes at a time where facial recognition technology stands at the realms of debate between various privacy and security personnel. While the tech has been put to good use by various organizations, we can’t help but notice the negative impacts it can have on citizens. Take for instance the WEF 2019 talk that pointed out the role of governments and military in the use (and potential abuse) of today’s technology. Users on Twitter displayed reactions along the same line, expressing their relief that the government will no longer be able to “invade and micromanage the privacy of others.” Some also have called Facial recognition used by the government as ‘Dangerous’.

On the love song “Owl,” he describes two birds who “both dropped into the air.”Mulvey pairs his words with inventive arrangements anchored by his fingerpicking and by producer Todd Sickafoose’s standup bass, with further colour provided by violin, pedal steel, accordion, clarinet and wine glass rims. Unusual chord progressions lend further unpredictability to the proceedings.Mulvey celebrates nature on “The Fox,” mourns war casualties on “To Your Joy,” echoes Brown on “Henry’s Only Daughter” and gets his Irish up on “Beckett Was a Bird of Prey.” The 13-song, 34-minute set goes quickly, and not just because of “Nickel and Dime.”Steven Wine, The Associated Press Review: Whimsy and boundary-pushing from Peter Mulvey
