Study to Consider Possible Land Use Conflicts with Maxwell AFB

first_imgMaxwell Air Force Base is not experiencing any significant encroachment issues from the surrounding region, but with recent growth in downtown Montgomery, Ala., city leaders want to ensure land use conflicts jeopardizing the installation don’t emerge in the coming decades.“We don’t want to have anything negatively impacting the mission of Maxwell and the Air Force, especially with the economic development we’ve been having in the downtown area,” Robert Smith, director of city planning, told the Montgomery Advertiser.To prepare for further growth in the River Region and uncover possible compatibility issues, Montgomery, Prattville and Montgomery County are partnering with Maxwell and to conduct a joint land use study. Matrix Design Group introduced the study to local residents at public meeting last week.The study, partially funded by DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment, will look at dozens of compatibility issues, including several conflicts that could arise in the future. The possibility that the Air National Guard’s 187th Fighter Wing moves from Montgomery Regional Airport to Maxwell could lead to noise conflicts if the unit starts flying the F-35. The study also will consider the prospect that frequency interference stemming from Montgomery’s aim to become a “gig city” with the state’s first internet exchange affects Air Force activities.Matrix, which has conducted 130 similar studies since 2005, will look at Maxwell and its Gunter Annex separately because of their geography and diverse missions, according to the story.The easiest way to avoid conflicts between the military and its civilian hosts is for both sides to communicate and coordinate their activities, said Mike Hrapla, the study’s project manager. “About 85 percent of compatibility issues can be resolved by sharing information,” Hrapla said.

Three women commit suicide in Rajshahi Tangail

first_imgLogo of SuicideIn separate incidents, two college girls and a housewife were found hanging in Rajshahi and Tangail districts on Friday, reports UNB.In Rajshahi, a female nursing institute student was dead at the institute’s hostel at Shalbagan in the city.The deceased was Shaila Khatun, 19, daughter of Maidul Islam of Char Mazardiar in Poba upazila. She was a student of Global Nursing Institute in the city.On information, police recovered the hanging body from the female student hostel, said Nibaran Chandra Barman, officer-in-charge of Boalia model police station.The body was sent to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital for autopsy, the OC said, adding that she might have committed suicide over love affairs.In Tangail, a college girl ‘killed’ herself by hanging herself from a ceiling fan over family feud at Malati village in Kalihati upazila on Friday afternoon.The deceased was identified as Rina Akter, 20, daughter of Rabiul Islam of the village. She was a first-year student of Ibrahim Khan Govt College.Meanwhile, a housewife allegedly took her life at Berbari village in the same upazila in the afternoon.The deceased was Taslima Akter, 25, daughter of Nurul Islam of the village, said Hasan Al Mamun, officer-in-charge of Kalihati police station.last_img read more

FilMart China Streaming Giant iQIYI Expands Production in Hong Kong Taiwan

first_imgChinese streaming giant iQiyi is boosting its original content production with a partnership to produce a web series with Hong Kong’s Shaw Brothers, and four series to be made in Taiwan this year.Announced on Tuesday at Hong Kong FilMart, iQiyi will team up with Shaw Brothers Pictures International for the first time to produce suspense thriller “The Protector.” To be produced by Hong Kong’s TVB veterans Virginia Lok and Chung Shu-kai, the series fictional series probes the secrets behind the insurance industry. It will star Michael Miu and Bosco Wong, and location shooting take place in Hong Kong, China, Malaysia and Prague.iQIYI has gained traction for its streaming service in Taiwan and is now cementing that position by producing original series on the island for the first time. Four titles — “Meet Me @1006”, “Befriend”, “Plant Goddess” and “Re-play” — are in different states of production and are slated for release this year. Each series comprises 24 one-hour episodes. Production of all four is overseen by veteran Taiwanese director Sam Liao. Original series production has proved to be a winning strategy for the company, notably in helping to convert casual users who access the advertising supported version of its platform into paying subscribers. iQIYI claims 50.8 million subscribers at the end of 2017.Mainland Chinese search engine giant Baidu will continue to own a majority stake in the company after the ongoing IPO of iQIYI on the NASDAQ exchange in the U.S. iQIYI expects to raise some $2.25 billion, much of which will be spent on new content. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Research team claims to have accurately teleported quantum information ten feet

first_imgThe research team next plans to extend the distance between the qubits to 1,300 meters, while others presumably will attempt to replicate the first result—if the claims prove true, the breakthrough could mark the first stage of a the development of a true quantum computer, or network. More information: Unconditional quantum teleportation between distant solid-state quantum bits, Science DOI: 10.1126/science.1253512ABSTRACTRealizing robust quantum information transfer between long-lived qubit registers is a key challenge for quantum information science and technology. Here, we demonstrate unconditional teleportation of arbitrary quantum states between diamond spin qubits separated by 3 m. We prepare the teleporter through photon-mediated heralded entanglement between two distant electron spins and subsequently encode the source qubit in a single nuclear spin. By realizing a fully deterministic Bell-state measurement combined with real-time feed-forward quantum teleportation is achieved upon each attempt with an average state fidelity exceeding the classical limit. These results establish diamond spin qubits as a prime candidate for the realization of quantum networks for quantum communication and network-based quantum computing.Ronald Hanson Lab: hansonlab.tudelft.nl/Press release: phys.org/wire-news/162888651/beam-me-up-data.html Explore further (Phys.org) —A team of researchers at Delft University in the Netherlands is reporting in a paper they have had published in the journal Science, that they have successfully used entanglement as a means of communication, over a distance of ten feet (three meters). Furthermore, they note, they did so with 100 percent reliability and without altering the spin state of the quantum bits (qubits) involved. Artistic impression of quantum teleportation of a spin state between two distant diamonds. Teleportation, is of course, a means of moving an object from one place to another without it having to travel between them. Thus far examples of it have only been seen in science fiction movies. The idea of moving information in similar fashion, however, has met with some, albeit limited success. The idea is to use the concept of entanglement of particles as a means of conveyance. It’s supposed to work because of the strange interconnectedness of the two particles—whatever happens to one, automatically happens to the other, regardless of the distance between them. Such a property should allow then, for the exchange of information. If the spin state of one qubit is altered, then it should be automatically altered in the other qubit—a form of information exchange which can be counted as a message of sorts if a string of such transactions can be carried out.To date, scientists have struggled to use entanglement as a means of communication—it’s been achieved but the error rate has been so great that it would be unfeasible as a real-world application. In this new effort, the researchers claim to have solved the error rate problem—they’ve brought it down to zero percent. They did it, they report, by trapping electrons in diamonds at very low temperatures and shooting them with lasers, resulting in the creation of qubits. The diamonds, the team reports, serve as really tiny prisons, holding the electrons in place. Held as they were, the researchers were able to cause a spin state to exist and then to read it at both locations, which meant that information had been conveyed. © 2014 Phys.orgcenter_img This document is subject to copyright.
