Khan died of injuries on chest, abdomen

first_imgDairy farmer Pehlu Khan, who was beaten up by a mob of cow vigilantes at Behror in Alwar district last week, died of serious injuries on his chest and lower abdomen, the autopsy report has revealed in its preliminary findings.The 55-year-old farmer from Nuh in Haryana sustained internal injuries on his lungs, while his ribs were broken and blood clots were found near his heart, stated the post-mortem report prepared by a four-member team of doctors and medical jurists. “It appears prima facie that Pehlu Khan died of internal injuries and heavy bleeding. The medical team has asked for viscera analysis for submitting its final report,” Alwar superintendent of police Rahul Prakash told The Hindu on Friday.The three accused — Vipin Yadav, Ravindra Yadav and Kalu Ram Yadav — who were arrested on Wednesday on the basis of video footage of the incident, were produced before the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate in Behror on the expiry of their one-day police remand. The court sent them to judicial custody for 14 days.Hunt on for 10 moreMr. Prakash said the police had identified 10 more accused persons in the case after establishing their presence on the spot from the video footage circulated on social media. Their names have been added to the FIR registered initially against six suspects on charge of murder and other offences. Three special teams of police officers were searching for the accused, who had fled their homes, and were conducting raids at their suspected hideouts, said the Superintendent of Police.Civil rights groups have sought immediate intervention of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to stop the “lawlessness and free run” given to cow vigilantes allegedly with the support of many people in high places.Asking whether the law and order machinery had been handed over by the police to the cow protection vigilante groups, the People’s Union for Civil Liberties said if this was not stopped, lawlessness would prevail on the streets and the State’s economic foundation would be attacked.Demands of activistsIn a memorandum submitted to Ms. Raje, PUCL State president Kavita Srivastava and other activists demanded immediate arrest of all attackers, suspension of Behror Station House Officer and resignation of Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria for “openly glorifying and lauding the criminals”.last_img read more

Man arrested for social media message on braid cutting incident in Uttar Pradesh

first_imgA man has been arrested on charge of spreading a false rumour on social media about braid cutting incidents, police said on Monday.The development comes amid a string of complaints of braid chopping, which has led to panic and fear in some areas of Uttar Pradesh and other neighbouring states.The message allegedly sent by a person identified as Jahir Khan, husband of Gardaha village head, claimed that a braid cutting gang was reported to be targeting a few villages of the area, Gola kotwali inspector Deepak Shukla said, adding it was “a baseless rumour”. The officer said that the message was forwarded to him on his Whatsapp number.“I called up the sender of the message and after ascertaining his location, the man (Khan) was arrested. He could not explain the authenticity of the message. A case under IT Act has been lodged against Jahir (Khan), and he has been sent to jail.,” Mr. Shukla said.last_img read more

U.P. municipal elections conclude, EC downplays allegations of malfunctioning EVMs

first_imgVoting for the third and final phase of the 2017 civic polls in Uttar Pradesh concluded on Wednesday with yet another round of malfunctioning EVMs and discrepancies in voter lists, leading to angry protests in several districts.The third phase, which covered 233 local bodies across 26 districts, however, registered an increase of 1.5% voting and touched 53%. The overall voting over the three phases was 52.5%, around six per cent increase from 2012.Complaints over EVM malfunctions and discrepancies in voter lists were received from several districts, including Bareilly, Bulandshahr, Auraiya, Jaunpur and Barabanki.Vijay Mishra, a resident of Bareilly, was frustrated after he found the wrong name listed on his address in the booth. “The address was correct but they listed the wrong name, some Radhelal Maurya instead of me,” said Mr. Maurya, adding that due to missing names only three out of his 30-member family were able to vote.Voters lathichargedIn Barabanki, voters faced similar issues and in ward 26 in Peer Batawan, police lathicharged people allegedly without provocation, breaking chairs and tables of polling agents, to disperse the crowd which had assembled to inquire about the lists.State Election Commissioner S.K. Agarwal said polling was conducted peacefully, even as he downplayed the incidents of malfunctioning EVMs, 27 on Wednesday, as normal. A total of 503 EVMs had to be replaced over the three phases, out of which 250 were in Lucknow itself.Mr. Agarwal said the figure of 503 was negligible compared to the total number of EVMs deployed by the SEC, 32,374.Counting will be held on December 1.last_img read more

Meet a new era of materials science at ESC Silicon Valley 2017

first_imgAs designers of embedded systems, we oftentimes end up focusing on (some may say obsessing over) nitty-gritty details about things like microcontrollers and memory architectures. As a result, we may miss a lot of things that are going on around us.For example, I’m convinced we are poised to enter a new era of materials science that could have far-reaching impacts on the systems we develop.(Source: pixabay.com) Have you ever stood outside at night and watched moths fluttering around a light? I know I have, but one thing that never struck me is that you never see twinkling points of light reflecting off their eyes. It turns out that this is because the little rascals have evolved a special layer of nanostructures covering their eyes that captures light without allowing any to be reflected. This has inspired coatings that will improve the efficiency of solar cells and the sensitivity of optical sensors, and that will also allow us to view the screens of our smartphones and mobile computers in broad sunlight.Did you ever read The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean? If not, do not delay, rush out and buy yourself a copy; you won’t be disappointed. As I wrote in this review, I discovered all sorts of interesting things in this tome, such as a super-acid with a pH of -31 that will eat through glass as ruthlessly as water through tissue paper.Or take the fact that there are about 100 naturally occurring elements. Combining these elements in different ways allows the universe to create all sorts of materials, and to then use these materials to construct all sorts of things, from a humble bacon sandwich (I like bacon sandwiches) to something as astoundingly magnificently complicated as, well, yours truly.Now, suppose that we doubled, tripled, or quadrupled the number of elements; what new materials might we see? Well, we may not be able to increase the number of elements, but we can do unexpected things with the ones we have. As Sam says in The Disappearing Spoon :…for instance, thirteen aluminium atoms grouped together in the right way do a killer bromine: the two entities are indistinguishable in chemical reactions. This happens despite the cluster being thirteen times larger than a single bromine atom and despite aluminium being nothing like the lacrimatory poison-gas staple. Other combinations of aluminium can mimic noble gases, semiconductors, bone material like calcium, or elements from pretty much any other region of the periodic table. The clusters work like this…My chum, Jay Dowling, just emailed me this link to an article about strong, light, and durable materials called schwarzites that feature complex, repeating patterns. First hypothesized by a German scientist, Hermann Schwarz, in the 1880s, these materials feature complex, curved geometries. Now, using 3D printers, scientists and engineers are making schwarzite structures in the lab; in the not-so-distant future, we may well be fabricating schwarzite-based micro-artifacts at the atomic scale.Or what about this paper that describes a nickel-cobalt-iron layered double hydroxide (Ni-Co-Fe LDH) material that can be used to split water into hydrogen and oxygen (nickel, cobalt, and iron are much cheaper than platinum and other precious metals that are currently used to produce hydrogen from water). Suppose we couple this with solar cells whose efficiency has been enhanced using the nanostructure films inspired by moths’ eyes discussed earlier. Could this lead to cars whose only requirement is to be topped up with water?Materials science is just one of the topics we’ll be touching on in the Advanced Technologies for 21st Century Embedded Systems talk I’ll be giving at the forthcoming Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in Silicon Valley. Happily, this talk will take place in the ESC Engineering Theater, which means it will be open to anyone to attend so long as they are flaunting a Free Expo Pass, but you do have to register.Will you be attending ESC Silicon Valley? If so, be sure to stop me and say “Hi.” I’ll be the one in the Hawaiian shirt. As always, all you have to do is shout “Max, Beer!” or “Max, Bacon!” to be assured of my undivided attention.

Seismic shakeup A number of schools changed conferences but have we seen

After the Cornhuskers made the Big 12 a smaller 11, the Pac-10 snagged Colorado, leaving the Big 12 at 10 teams. Many anticipated more action from the Pac-10, expecting the conference to attempt to rival the Big Ten by expanding to as many as 16 schools. But after swiping Utah from the Mountain West, the Pac-10, now with 12 teams, appears satisfied. Utah will join the Pac-10 in 2011, Colorado in 2012. “I expected that to happen — new commissioner in the Pac-10, new television agreement coming up,” Smith said. “It made sense for them, so I knew the Pac-10 was going to go that way, and I knew that it would affect the Big 12, but I just didn’t know how. When television contracts are getting ready to come up and people see the changing landscape in television, people start adding inventory.” The shakeups left the Big 12 on life support, with just 10 teams and its moneymaker, Texas, contemplating a switch itself. Texas A&M even received an invitation to join the SEC. But a new TV deal, set up to make Texas the main attraction, got all teams on board, saving the Big 12 as a league with 10 schools. But plates continued to shift and movement persisted. Boise State, a perennial BCS bowl-game contender in the last decade, parted ways with loads of inferior competition in the WAC to join the Mountain West Conference. Fresno State and Nevada also will join the MWC in 2012, while Boise will enroll in 2011. One of the signature programs of the MWC, however, isn’t sticking around to face the newcomers. Brigham Young will become an independent in football in 2011, a title only Notre Dame, Army and Navy claim in Division I. For all other sports, BYU will join the West Coast Conference. “We’ve long sought broad, nationwide access to our games for our fans and increased visibility among those who may be less familiar with our university and athletic programs,” BYU President Cecil O. Samuelson said in a press release. “We’ve also been looking for ways to take better advantage of our own unique broadcasting resources.” After the dust settled, there were more rumblings than actual quakes. There was never that one tremor that affected the entire nation, which many expected and some feared. Instead, we’re left with minor face lifts to several conferences, and we’re left with more questions about potential future shakeups. “I’m watching everybody else,” Smith said. “We’re (the Big Ten) basically done for now. I don’t know if we’ll expand anymore, I really don’t. It’s a possibility, but what’s interesting is watching the rest of the landscape.” The rumbling started last winter, when the Big Ten announced its intentions to explore conference expansion. It culminated months later in significant, nationwide shifts. The first tremor shook the Midwest, when Nebraska bolted for the Big Ten. The reshuffling set off a series of quakes felt all around the country, from the Pac-10 to the Big 12 to the Mountain West. In the end, if we have reached the end, the landscape of college football changed, though not as dramatically as the initial quivers suggested. But have these relocations been the result of a routine shakeup, or is this the start of a major restructuring? Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said the transformation results from changing revenue streams. “If you look back over the history of college sports, the one thing that’s constant is change,” Smith said. “One of the largest areas of revenue for all of us is television money. People don’t want to talk about it, but it’s true. The reality is, as television changes, and all the mediums change for communication, the conferences have to shift in order to maximize revenue opportunities off of them.” Initial rumors suggested college football could be transitioning to feature four “super-conferences,” each equipped with 12 to 16 teams — enough power and revenue to bury non-BCS leagues in the sand. “I think it’s possible because the thought is there,” Smith said. “I don’t know if we’ll ever get to a playoff like the public wants. I see a lot of challenges with that on a lot of different levels. But do I see playoffs within a conference that could lead to something like that on a smaller scale? Yeah. So, when you get to those 16, you get to two or four conferences with 16 teams, divisions, that type of stuff. I can see that down the road.” The notion of super-conferences stemmed from indications that the Big Ten was prepared to expand to 14 or 16 teams, adding from the likes of Notre Dame, Syracuse, Rutgers, Texas and Missouri to stretch its reach across more of the country. Plucking programs from other conferences would force those battered leagues to fuse together to match the Big Ten’s muscle. “People use the term ‘arms race,’ which I really don’t think is it,” Smith said. “We’re like any restaurateur, we’re like the college of business, we’re like the college of engineering. We’re like everybody else that aspires to be No. 1. Yes, you can use the term ‘arms race,’ but frankly, we’re just strengthening the business.” The super-conference idea hasn’t panned out just yet. Instead, a series of aftershocks sent a handful of teams in and out of new conferences. read more

Lenzelle Smith Jr regains shooting touch in Ohio States win against Illinois

Senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. (32) passes the ball during a game against Illinois Jan. 23 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 62-55.Credit: Kaily Cunningham / Multimedia editorAt any level of basketball, shooters go through slumps — it’s part of the game.Ohio State senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. was no different in his team’s four games prior to Thursday’s 62-55 win against Illinois.But one shot — that’s all it took for Smith Jr. to get back to where he needed to be and to help get his squad going the right way again.“Lenzelle’s shot at the end of the half, he let that thing go and I’m like, ‘Come on, one time,’” said coach Thad Matta after the win, referring to a 3-pointer the senior buried that gave the Buckeyes a one-point lead with less than a minute left in the first half.It is no surprise that the Buckeyes lost those four games when Smith Jr. shot a combined 13-39 from the field, including just 4-17 from beyond the arc.But against Illinois, he rediscovered the shooting touch that helped his team start the season 15-0 — when he shot 39 percent from deep — pouring in 16 points and matching the number of 3-pointers he had made during those four losses. Smith Jr. said just seeing the ball go through the net was huge for his confidence, and a little bit of extra push from his teammates to keep shooting.“It’s a mental thing,” Smith Jr. said after the win. “Sometimes I get in a state of mind of, ‘Ah, you missed a shot, maybe you should try to get in the paint now and get a layup.’ Or just tonight, I missed a few shots and (senior guard Aaron Craft and junior forward LaQuinton Ross) specifically said, ‘Shoot the ball!’ They were yelling at me, ‘Why are you not shooting the ball?’ And that kind of gave me that extra motivation of well, they want me to shoot then that’s my job on this team, and I’m (going to) shoot and luckily down the stretch, it came through for us.”The play down the stretch against the Fighting Illini came with just 1:16 left on the clock when his team was clinging to a five-point lead, needing a score to put the game on ice.With the shot clock winding down, the senior from Zion, Ill., found the ball in his hands on the right wing with no choice but to fire. The ball swished through the net, the crowd erupted, and Illinois’ ship sank.The big play came on the heels of a three-point play by Ross and a turnover by Illinois, plays that Fighting Illini coach John Groce said were the difference in the outcome.“Give them a lot of credit,” Groce said after the game. “I thought that Ross’ and-one was huge. I thought that Smith’s three was huge. I thought those were two big plays.”The man who found Smith Jr. for the dagger 3-pointer was none other than Craft himself, on one of his team-leading five assists. Craft said he and Smith Jr. felt more responsibility than usual to help put an end to the losing skid.“I think Lenzelle and I, both being seniors, we wanted to take it upon ourselves,” Craft said. “We didn’t do anything special, we didn’t say anything that was Earth-shattering or anything. We have a group of guys that’s been through the battles and knows what it takes … It’s about being tough down the stretch and finding whatever we have to do. And that’s what we did today and that’s what it’s about.”A relieved Matta joked that Smith Jr.’s 4-8 shooting performance from three “probably takes him out to about six percent” shooting in Big Ten play, but couldn’t be more proud of his performance Thursday.“Honestly, I’m happy for Lenzelle because he’s been very diligent last few days of in there working and trying to get everything right,” Matta said. “You see that, and that’s what excites you as a coach and you’re happy for him when it goes in.”Though OSU (16-4, 3-4) might be back on track, it still sits in a tie for sixth place in the Big Ten with last-place Penn State (10-10, 1-6) set to visit the Schottenstein Center Wednesday at 7 p.m.But putting a halt to the losing streak — the program’s longest since February 2008 — puts the Buckeyes near where they need to be come season’s end.“It’s very important, obviously,” Smith Jr. said on ending the losing skid. “I don’t think anybody here or in this team signed up to lose games, so I mean obviously guys are feeling a little bit better now. Obviously we know that we haven’t done what we wanted to do, or we got done what we think we should get done but it’s definitely a step closer and it feels good.” read more

Real Madrid are happy with Santiago Solaris performance

first_imgReal Madrid director Emilio Butragueno says Madrid are happy with interim coach Santiago Solari’s performance since being in charge as the club grabbed their fourth consecutive win by beating Celta Vigo on Sunday.Madrid grabbed a 4-2 win at Balaidos, bringing it to four victories with 15 goals since Solari’s tenure while bridging the gap behind Barca to four points in La Liga.“He has done excellently,” Butragueno said on Sunday.”“He arrived in a very particular moment and has achieved very good results, above all today against Celta in a very difficult game. We are very happy with how things have gone.”“We will see,” Solari said, according to AFP.“I usually don’t plan too far ahead but in principle, it’s my day off tomorrow.”“The important thing is to do everything for the good of the team and Real Madrid. Nothing else is important for me.”Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“The team showed a lot of personalities to come through all the circumstances of the game.”“Gareth made a massive effort, his ankle was very swollen”“Celta played very aggressively, on the edge of the rules.”On the other hand, Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola believes Madrid players are behind Solari.“These things are decided by those at the top, we just have to work to get out of the crisis,” Odriozola said.“We’ll go to the death with him, he’s a great coach and of course we want him to continue.”last_img read more

Carlos Tevez Conmebol forced us to play the final

first_imgBoca Juniors’ legend Carlos Tevez, was the unofficial spokesman for his squad and accused Conmebol of forcing them to play the final.Right after the Boca Juniors bus was vandalized earlier this Saturday outside Monumental Stadium, the images of Carlos Tevez were constant both before and after the match that Conmebol ultimately decided to postpone.But as more details have emerged throughout the night, the club legend was one of the few people who were in the middle of the situation and was able to speak up against the powers that be after the shameful way in which Boca Juniors was treated.The fact that they were playing at River Plate’s own stadium was somehow viewed as a perfect opportunity for Conmebol to think they had more power over all the Boca player, even after the evident physical problems they suffered after the incident while going into the stadium on the bus.There were even alarming reports that when projectiles started hitting the vehicle, the driver fainted as the River Plate fans started throwing objects to the bus.Los de Boca les iban cantando desde el bus pic.twitter.com/8nWjQJEYYU— HumorFPC (@HumorFPC) November 24, 2018“(I was out), (Boca VP Horacio) Paolini grabbed hold of the wheel until I was able to react once again and did what I could to get the boys into the stadium,” said the bus driver whom everybody knows as ‘El Gringo’ to Diario La Nacion.“It could have been a tragedy. I remember seeing some rocks but then I can’t remember anything.”“I react once again, I grab the steering wheel firmly and I tell them that I am fine. It was a moment where I was without air. The worst part was over at Quinteros and Libertador, that was a massive attack. After we passed the rotunda it was as if an army was waiting for us.”“To me the zone was freed up. We came to play a football match, not to go to war,” he added.Carlos Tévez: “Si lo de hoy fuese Boca, River ya tendría la Copa…”. pic.twitter.com/l4AYXhEfxT— Invictos (@InvictosSomos) November 25, 2018But the most surprising statement came from Boca legend Carlitos Tevez, who came out to speak with the press in two separate occasions.The first one was to tell their families that mostly everybody was okay, but he mentioned abuse from Conmebol in both of the times he spoke with several members of the media.River Plate v Boca Juniors - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2018Match Preview: River Plate vs Boca Juniors Boro Tanchev – September 1, 2019 It is time for one of the most intense derby games in the world, as River Plate and Boca Juniors go head-to-head tonight at 22:00 (CET).“All they (Conmebol) cared about at that moment was for the match to be played, and we had our own skipper in the hospital with serious injuries,” said Tevez at first to Fox Sports.“All they cared at that moment was the fact that there were presidents from several confederations and even the FIFA president.”“It was a complete disgrace because Conmebol behaved very poorly with us, and this is a personal opinion because I don’t want to involve Boca in what I have to say about them.”“I say all this because they were forcing us to play the match. They should instead give River the cup and that’s it, we don’t play at all.”“We needed to go out and speak for the match to be canceled, or it would’ve been played if we hadn’t done that.””Si fuese Boca, ya estábamos afuera…” sentenció Carlos Tevez desde el Monumental y comentó lo que pasó en el 2015. pic.twitter.com/14jlnnqmxj— SportsCenter (@SC_ESPN) November 24, 2018“It’s the people up top who decided what was fair, we are all sad because football lost today and I think we all sinned as a country,” added Tevez on the second exchange with Fox Sports.“This was supposed to be a celebration and that’s the only way we needed to experience it. Leaving like this can’t be good for anyone.”“We changed our clothes three times and if we forfeited the match, River were the ones who were getting the trophy, that’s the reason we got ready to play.”“Marcelo Gallardo was very smart, he came to see that everybody was okay and if we needed anything.”“But I have to say that I can’t forget about the 2015 incident, when the River players stated that the Boca squad never approached to see how they were doing. I didn’t see any River players coming to ask us if we were okay,” he concluded.El momento en que #MarceloGallardo se acerca a hablar con #Tevez.

Researchers use squeezed light to enhance photonic force microscopy

first_img Citation: Researchers use squeezed light to enhance photonic force microscopy (2014, February 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-02-photonic-microscopy.html (Phys.org) —A team of researchers working in Australia has used “squeezed light” to enhance the sharpness of images produced using photonic force microscopy. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the team describes how they applied a property of quantum mechanics to microscopy to offer resolution enhancement of up to 14 percent. More information: Subdiffraction-Limited Quantum Imaging within a Living Cell, Phys. Rev. X 4, 011017 (2014) [7 pages] prx.aps.org/abstract/PRX/v4/i1/e011017AbstractWe report both subdiffraction-limited quantum metrology and quantum-enhanced spatial resolution for the first time in a biological context. Nanoparticles are tracked with quantum-correlated light as they diffuse through an extended region of a living cell in a quantum-enhanced photonic-force microscope. This allows spatial structure within the cell to be mapped at length scales down to 10 nm. Control experiments in water show a 14% resolution enhancement compared to experiments with coherent light. Our results confirm the long-standing prediction that quantum-correlated light can enhance spatial resolution at the nanoscale and in biology. Combined with state-of-the-art quantum light sources, this technique provides a path towards an order of magnitude improvement in resolution over similar classical imaging techniques.

Explore further Photonic force microscopy is a type of microscopy where tiny fat granules and light are used to obtain images of objects too small to be seen with other techniques—measurements are taken of the light that is bounced back to create an image. The method suffers, however, when trying to create images beyond its scope—blurriness occurs due to noise from the light source.Blurriness from a light source occurs because of the nature of photons—they’re both wave and particle and as such don’t align with one another when traveling. When light strikes a source the photons are all at different points in their wave pattern. This diffraction is what causes the blurriness in microscopy. To get around it, the researchers with this latest effort used a technique where the light was squeezed before striking the object, guaranteeing that all the photons would be aligned.Squeezing light is based on the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, but instead of trying to deal with measuring the speed or position of a photon at a given point in time, it applies to the same sort of relationship between its phase and intensity. The researchers used this relationship to cause the photons that arrived at a target to all be in the same wave alignment, thus reducing diffraction and the inevitable blurriness that occurs when normal light is used in image creation.The overall objective of the researchers in this effort was to allow for a better view of the inner workings of living cells—specifically, they’d like to get a view of the pores that exist in cell walls that allow (and prevent) material to pass in and out. Current technology allows for viewing the pores, but only those in dead cells. Photonic force microscopy on the other hand can be used on living cells—thus improving its resolution and helping the researchers achieve their ultimate goal. , Physical Review X Researchers use quantum entanglement to improve differential interference contrast microscopy © 2014 Phys.org Credit: Michael Taylor/University of Queensland / via Physics Synopsis Journal information: Physical Review Letterslast_img read more
