by Lee KainoelaniRabat – Dominic Purcell, star of Prison Break series, sustained injuries after an accident occurred while filming for Prison Break Season 5, according to Hall of Fame Magazine.Purcell share the news with his fans on his Instagram account. “Thank god my love @theannalynnemccord was there when my unfortunate accident occurred on set.” Purcell added, “She went into raging #momma mode along with #christianorthup and got me the right care.”He also told his fans not to worry and the show will go on. Purcell mentioned that he was really grateful to be doing well, despite the accident and his injures.The actor later informed his fans he was doing well and and it was his thick skull that saved him after an iron bar fell on his head. He also sustained injuries of a broken nose due to the accident.Purcell’s physician, who examined his wounds, also revealed that his tissue fiber was unusually tough, saving him from sustaining more injuries in the accident.Wentworth Miller, co-actor in Prison Break, shared his thoughts about his colleague’s accident on Instagram, reposting the picture of injuries from Purcell.Meanwhile, there have been speculations about the Scofield family in season five of Prison Break, with the chance that the producers may not opt for a happy ending on the show.Viewers can see more of Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller when Prison Break Season 5 returns in spring 2017.
LinkedIn posts 3rd-quarter results above Wall Street’s expectations, stock up after hours AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by News Staff Posted Nov 1, 2012 5:49 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – LinkedIn Corp. outpaced Wall Street’s expectations with its third-quarter results, solidifying its status as an investor favourite at a time when other Internet companies have fallen from grace.The professional networking company booked a profit in the third quarter, reversing a loss in the same period a year ago as revenue grew at a faster pace than analysts expected. Its stock climbed $6.40, or 6 per cent, to $113.25 in after-hours trading, after closing down 8 cents to $106.85 at the end of regular trading.Embraced by investors, LinkedIn has been an exception among Internet companies that have gone public in recent years. Others, such as Facebook Inc., online deals site Groupon Inc. and game company Zynga Inc. are all trading well below their initial public offering price. LinkedIn’s stock price, meanwhile, has more than doubled since its May 2011 IPO .LinkedIn said Thursday that it earned $2.3 million, or 2 cents per share, in the July-September period. That’s up from a loss of $1.9 million, or 2 cents per share, a year ago.Adjusted earnings were $25.1 million, or 22 cents per share, in the latest quarter, double what analysts expected.Revenue grew 81 per cent to $252 million from $139.5 million. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected revenue of $244.6 million. The company gets about two-thirds of revenue from the various fees it charges to mine the profiles and other data on its website, the rest come from advertising. It saw increases in all areas.“The last few months mark the most significant period of product development in the company’s history,” said CEO Jeff Weiner in a statement. “This accelerated pace of innovation is fundamental to our goal of driving greater engagement on the LinkedIn platform.”The company has been rolling out new features and more applications for smartphones and tablets. The additions are designed to get users to visit its site â€” and stick around longerâ€” even when they are not looking for a job.For the current quarter, LinkedIn is forecasting revenue of $270 million to $275 million, which brackets analysts’ expectations of $272.9 million.
Senior midfielder Max Moller shields a defender form the ball during a game against Akron on Sept. 24 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 3-1.Credit: Ben Jackson / For The LanternIn the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Ohio State men’s soccer team might not have been banking on a win at No. 8 Louisville on Tuesday night.But the Buckeyes were surely glad to get it.OSU (3-3-3, 1-1-0) defeated Louisville, 1-0, to snap its losing slide on the strength of a first-half goal by senior midfielder Yianni Sarris.Sarris capitalized off a turnover by the Cardinals (5-2-1) late in the 34th minute and scored his third goal of the season, putting his team ahead for good.OSU was outshot, 15-6, in a contest that saw Louisville control the possession for most of the game. However, redshirt-senior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov’s three saves made sure Sarris’s goal held as the decider to seal the upset on the road.Ivanov keeping Louisville off the scoreboard for his fourth shutout of the season was especially impressive given the potency of the Cardinals’ offense.Louisville had scored 14 goals over a four-game winning streak coming into Tuesday night’s game, including four in a win against Pittsburgh on Friday. The Cardinals fired nine shots on goal in that game, compared to four against the Buckeyes.The win marked the first in an away game for the Buckeyes since 2012, breaking a 13-game winless streak. This season, they defeated Elon University in Wilmington, N.C., on Sept. 7, but that game was considered to be at a neutral site. OSU is now 1-2-1 in away matches this season.It was also the first loss at home this season for the Cardinals, who came into the game 3-0-1 in Louisville, Ky.The Buckeyes are set to take on another top-25 team when No. 14 Michigan State visits OSU on Saturday night. The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
By working together, gold miners and their host country governments can build companies and industries that are sustainable regardless of the gold price cycle, Randgold Resources CEO Mark Bristow told the Indaba mining conference in Cape Town today. “Between the last gold boom in 1980 and the current bull run, there have been many peaks and valleys, often linked to economic or political jitters. The challenge is to create legislation and pursue business models that are not locked into this rollercoaster ride but are capable of surviving cyclicality,” he said.Bristow noted that Africa’s mineral wealth was offset by its lack of infrastructure and skills, as well as by governments’ tendency to change the rules once they had successfully solicited mining investment. “It takes only a small shift in the risk:reward equation to discourage investment, which is why many of the big international companies which were flocking to Africa at the height of the boom have suddenly developed cold feet,” he said.However, in addition to its mineral resources Africa also held a significant attraction for gold miners in the form of its gold fields’ geographic concentration, notably in the Birrimian region of West Africa, the Congo Craton of Central and East Africa and the Witwatersrand of South Africa. “If governments could get together and create enabling legislation, this aggregation does offer the potential for some very attractive synergies,” he said.Bristow said in just over 10 years Randgold Resources had discovered and developed two mines with a combined annual gold production of 700 000 oz, was building a third and had a fourth waiting in the wings. Its existing mines had created 5,000 jobs in areas where the only economic activity had been subsistence farming. It had invested substantially in the development of people and partnerships with governments, communities and local businesses, creating lasting value for all its stakeholders in the form of economic opportunities, careers and skills, improved infrastructure and a better quality of life.“If we as a company have been able to achieve this in West Africa, then surely as an industry, and in partnership with our host governments, we should be able to repeat it across the continent – building profitable mines that could support industry, attract fixed capital investment and deliver benefits to all stakeholders,” he said.
If Mr Conlan wants to put two fingers up the public accounts committee and say he’s not going to give any information then we will seek those powers. I’ve no doubt I’ll be asking my colleagues to do that.Conlan and the Central Remedial Clinic have been at the centre of the recent ‘top-up’ scandal after it emerged that senior staff were paid extra monies from funds raised by a registered charity.Although Conlan’s salary was in line with HSE guidelines, his predecessor Paul Kiely had received a top-up of €135,000 on a basic salary of €116,000.Ross said he was shocked that there was a reluctance for people to come before the PAC, adding that their absence forces the committee to look for powers to compel them to attend.“Mr Kiely is the biggest beneficiary of this top-up which was money which could have gone to children, which went to him,” he said. “He must answer what he was doing and why he was getting this money? And who, afterall, authorised it?”Ross also noted that the precedent in this case was set by Rody Molloy who appeared before the PAC three or four days after resigning from FÁS following the spending scandal.“I think his reluctance to come in tells a story in itself and he’s in a rather unique position because there are massive question marks in this issue about the process by which he got the job and we know the HSE issued two warning signals, what it notices to the directors of the CRC saying they were behaving extraordinarily, the phrase they use is highly irregularly.“We want to know what happened here. This is, again it’s public money paying this man and for him to say everybody else knows it so I’m not coming in, looks like a guy who is ducking the PAC.”Watch: the full show on RTÉ Player>Read: Outgoing CRC chief will not attend Oireachtas hearing on top-ups scandalRelated: CRC chief quits in the midst of charity top-up scandal INDEPENDENT DEPUTY SHANE Ross has said he will seek extra powers for the Public Accounts Committee to compel the outgoing chief executive Brian Conlan of the Central Remedial Clinic to appear at an Oireachtas hearing.Speaking on Prime Time last night, the Dublin TD explained the PAC can seek the powers under new legislation if the former CEO does not appear tomorrow with other CRC executives.“We can go to the procedural committee, the procedural committee privileges the Dáil,” said Ross. “I imagine we’ll get them judging by the very helpful words of the Taoiseach…when he said that he expected Mr Conlan to come in.
There are already gloves on the market with holes in the fingertips or special material around the fingers that allow you to use capacitive touch-screens while keeping your hands nice and warm in cold weather, but what makes the Agloves special is the special silver-coated nylon the gloves are made from, and the price: they’re available now for only $17.99 per pair. The silver-coated nylon means that you don’t have to have the fingertips of your gloves exposed and you aren’t limited to only using the very tip of your fingers with your touch-sensitive display. The material makes the entire glove a conductor, so you can use multi-touch gestures with all of your fingers or your whole hand if you choose to. Best of all, the uniform knitting means your hands stay nice and warm while you use your phone.
Before all of Apple’s WWDC news broke, Sprint made sure to get its announcement in that it will be releasing the HTC EVO 3D smartphone and the EVO View 4G tablet on June 24. The 4.3-inch EVO 3D is the first glasses-free 3D display on a smartphone, and the 7-inch EVO View is the first 4G-capable WiMAX tablet in the U.S. If you’re one of Sprint’s Premiere customers, you can get the EVO 3D online starting June 21 – a whole three days early.Both devices will feature Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The 1.2GHz dual-core HTC EVO 3D will cost you $199.99 with a new two-year contract. The 1.5GHz single-core tablet, on the other hand, will cost you $399.99 with a two-year contract. Data plans start at $35 per month for 3GB of 3G data and unlimited 4G data usage.AdChoices广告The tablet comes with the nifty HTC Scribe pen that lets the user write notes, sign their signature on documents, add annotations, and so on, right on the tablet’s touchscreen. According to Sprint, this is only available for a limited time. The pen itself is worth $80.The EVO View includes 4G capability and works on Sprint’s WiMAX network. When there’s no 4G service available, the tablet drops down to the Sprint 3G network. It offers 32GB of memory, Mobile Hotspot connectivity up for up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices, 1GB RAM, HD video recording, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.The EVO View tablet also features Flash support, which is something the iPad is still lacking. It’s a little surprising that the View will be running Android 2.3 when the Motorola Xoom tablet is running Android 3.1 Honeycomb. Sprint said in a press release that it will update the View to Android 3.0 when it’s available for a 7-inch tablet.
orders. Some have also asked whether a person could infinitely be remanded by a court without court proceedings.Section 24 Subsection 3(a) of the Constitution states:“Every person who is charged with a criminal offence shall be presumed innocent until he or she is proved or has pleaded guilty.” It is this presumption of innocence which has also given rise to the right to a fair hearing before an independent and impartial tribunal.How should the court treat the accused person? Could the court order an accused person to be remanded in custody in a place other than a prison?The Criminal Procedure Code creates two different standards which need to be harmonised through the Law Reform Commission.In terms of trial before a subordinate court Section 162 of the Criminal Procedure Code indicates that in case of an adjournment, the court may order “the accused person to go at large, or may commit him to prison, or may release him upon his entering into recognisance with or without sureties, at the discretion of the court, conditioned for his appearance at the time and place to which such hearing or further hearing shall be adjourned.” Hence it is clear that anybody who is tried before a subordinate court must be remanded in a prison if not released on bail.Needless to say, such adjournment has limits. Section 162 did add that “..no such adjournment shall be for more than fifteen clear days, or if the accused is committed to prison, for more than seven clear days, the day following that on which the adjournment is made being counted as the first day.”Hence, it is also clear that one cannot be remanded for more than seven days without appearing in a subordinate court for the continuation of the case.Prisoners under remand have privileges. Section 37 of the Prisons Act states:“A civil or unconvinced prisoner may be permitted to maintain himself, and to purchase or receive from private sources at the proper hours food, clothing, bedding or other necessaries, but subject to examination and to such other conditions as may be prescribed.”Rule 58 of the Prisons Rules also indicates the rights to be exercised by remanded prisoners. It states: “A prisoner awaiting trial on remand shall be afforded immediate and ample facilities for communicating with his friends and legal advisers. Letters shall be sent by post or otherwise with the least possible delay. Telegrams shall also be sent at once, if a prisoner so desires, but at his own expense.”On the other hand, Section 226 of the Criminal Procedure Code deals with cases before superior courts. It states:“If, from the absence of witnesses or any other reasonable cause to be recorded in the proceedings, the Court considers it necessary or advisable to postpone the commencement of or to adjourn any trial, the Court may from time to time postpone or adjourn the same on such terms as it thinks fit for such time as it considers reasonable, and may by warrant remand the accused to some prison or other place of security.During a remand the Court may at any time order the accused to be brought before it.The Court may on a remand admit the accused to bail.”Those detained in other places of security should enjoy the same rights as that of a Remand prisoner.In our view, the Police and NIA Headquarters should not be transformed into remand wings. This provision in the criminal procedure code should be amended to delete the power to remand the person to other place of security. Furthermore, the limit set for the mandatory continuation of cases before subordinate courts should also be extended to superior courts through an amendment of the Criminal Procedure Code. This is the way to prevent justice from being delayed and, by extension, also denied. ]]>
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThree children and a boy barely an adult could spend time in jail for a cruel robbery in Grand Turk, where a barmaid was struck in her head with a baseball bat and money was stolen. If our juvenile center never before had long term tenants, it seems poised to now get some. Sadly, Police today report that a 14 year old, two 17 year olds and an 18 year old all say they are guilty of the incident from June 14, 2016 when shortly after midnight, the four entered the Ocean View Bar on West Road in Grand Turk and robbed it, but not before violently attacking the female attendant. She was struck in her head and about her arms with a bat by these boys, who now offer no challenge on the crime and have to see what a judge says about the time they will spend in prison. The four – including Jerry Dossou and Tashawn Higgs, both 17 and Brian Blenman, 18 – were arrested and charged four days after the armed robbery, where Police say they dressed the part – all in black and took the cash register earnings and the woman’s handbag before running off. The four will be sentenced on October 7, 2016.

Natural gas distributor -Keyera Energy Co. will relocate its facilities and keep jobs in Vancouver under a plan approved by the Port of Vancouver’s Board of Commissioners Tuesday.The three-member board unanimously approved a contract of about $984,000 to extend utilities and make other improvements to a four-acre parcel north of the port’s Terminal 5 rail loop. The work to improve the property, to begin in the next 14 days, will enable Keyera to relocate its liquefied propane gas storage and transfer facility at 1308 W. McLoughlin Blvd. to the northeastern portion of the former Alcoa-Evergreen aluminum site, now called Terminal 5.Curtis Shuck, director of economic development and facilities for the port, said Keyera’s relocation plans, coupled with the board’s action Tuesday, will retain three to four full-time and part-time jobs directly associated with Keyera’s operations. Shuck said the move also means that roughly 20 to 30 jobs indirectly associated with Keyera’s operations, such as truck drivers making deliveries, will stay in Vancouver.The utilities work the board approved Tuesday not only “provides the foundation” for Keyera to develop the site, but it also “prepares the property for other interested users,” Shuck said. “You build it, and they come.”The Keyera project is the latest deal being pursued by the Port of Vancouver to promote economic development in the region. Last week, for example, the port announced plans to sell up to 22 acres of industrial property to Farwest Steel Corp., a move that could eventually generate up to 225 jobs. The port’s board is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the first step of its plans with Farwest — freeing up the property so it may be sold — on June 8.

Baltimore’s 2014 citywide elections include one final campaign for the patriarch of a Baltimore family political dynasty, the Register of Wills prospective passing of the torch from mother to daughter, and a fiery young challenger for the State’s Attorney’s office.In the race for Judge of the Baltimore City Judicial Eighth Circuit, eight candidates are vying for seven seats: Melissa Kaye Copeland, Philip S. Jackson, Jeffrey M. Geller, Alfred Nance, Christopher Panos, Melissa Phinn, Julie Rubin and Page Croyder. Of that group Croyder is the only candidate currently not seated on the Court. Croyder, who served for more than 20 years in the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s office before retiring from the agency in January 2008, says she is running for Nance’s seat.“What the public should not stand for, are judges who embarrass and degrade the jurors, witnesses, and attorneys who appear in court before them…,” Croyder said in a statement in February. Nance has been the subject of multiple judicial disciplinary investigations over the years.Frank M. Conaway, Sr. has been a public servant in Baltimore since he was elected to the House of Delegates in 1971. Years later in 1998 he was elected Clerk of the Circuit Court of Baltimore City, a position he still holds. But, the patriarch of the Conaway political clan says this will be his last campaign. He faces Robert Ignatowski and William Allen in the June primary.Conaway’s wife Mary became the city’s first Black and first female Register of Wills in 1982. She recently retired from the position citing health issues, but she is hoping the couple’s daughter Belinda K. Conaway, a former 7th District City Councilwoman will succeed her. Belinda Conaway faces Ramona Moore Baker, Marco K. Merrick and Douglas K. Paige in the race for Register of Wills.In the contest for Judge of the Orphan’s Court, incumbents Lewyn Scott Garrett and Michele E. Loewenthal face opponents Charles “Chuck” Bernstein, Stephan W. Fogleman, Granville Templeton, III and Mark H. Weisner for three seats. Chief Judge Joyce Baylor-Thompson is not running for re-election.Long-time Baltimore City Sheriff John W. Anderson began his career as a deputy sheriff in 1972 and was appointed to his current position by former Governor William Donald Schaeffer in 1989. He faces two opponents in the June primary: Donoven Brooks and Richard Parker.In perhaps the most volatile citywide race of 2014 incumbent State’s Attorney Gregg Bernstein faces a resolute Marilyn Mosby, a former city prosecutor who has garnered some high profile endorsements and supporters.“I can tell you from experience working in the State’s Attorney’s office (Mosby worked under both former State’s Attorney Pat Jessamy and Bernstein), that the police all too often get these bad guys off the street. It’s up to the State’s Attorney’s office to seal the deal and get the conviction and that’s not happening,” said Mosby who touts a conviction rate of 80 percent when she was a prosecutor.She specifically cites the case of Nelson Bernard Clifford, who has been charged in five sexual assault cases since 2010 in which he was linked through DNA, yet was acquitted in four of those cases. As of the end of last year, Clifford was being held without bail as Bernstein’s office seeks a conviction on refiled charges from a 2007 allegation against the alleged rapist.“As a wife, as a mother and a resident of West Baltimore and a former prosecutor, I know and understand that it’s a very small group of violent, repeat offenders who are wreaking all the havoc in our communities,” said Mosby who has been endorsed by the AFL-CIO and the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance. She is also supported by University of Maryland Law Professor and political strategist Larry Gibson and former Baltimore and former Baltimore City State’s Attorney Kurt Schmoke.Despite Mosby’s charges State’s Attorney Bernstein says the relationship between police department and prosecutors, “Has never been stronger.”“We’ve instituted a number of programs and strategies to insure that strong working relationship continues,” Bernstein said.“For example…our major investigations unit, in terms of its prosecution of violent repeat offenders we meet on a monthly basis with our counterparts in the different districts to review those individuals who we want to target,” he added.Bernstein, who assumed office in January 2011, says he personally engages directly with the community on almost a daily basis.“Since we’ve went to this community prosecution model (prosecutors are assigned to specific neighborhoods in the city) we’ve been successful in prosecuting almost 500 more dangerous felons every year than we had in the past, as well as successfully prosecuting more than100 additional gun offenders every year,” Bernstein explained.“That suggests to me…that not only is the community prosecution model successful, but also we are staying engaged with the community,” he added.Nevertheless, Mosby argues, “the current administration’s priorities are off.” “We’re not going to grow Baltimore, we’re not going to bring families, we’re not going to build businesses unless and until we do something about the crime and order to do that we have to prioritize.”

The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further For the first time, scientists have experimentally demonstrated that sound pulses can travel at velocities faster than the speed of light, c. William Robertson’s team from Middle Tennessee State University also showed that the group velocity of sound waves can become infinite, and even negative. To rephase the spectral components, the sound waves were sent through an asymmetric loop filter on a waveguide of PVC pipe, about 8 m long. The 0.65-meter loop split the sound waves into two unequal path lengths, resulting in destructive interference and standing wave resonances that together created transmission dips at regular frequencies. Due to anomalous dispersion (which changes the wave speed), sound pulses traveling through the loop filter arrived at the exit sooner than pulses traveling straight through the PVC. With this experiment, the group velocity could actually reach an infinitely small amount of time, although the individual spectral components still travel at the speed of sound. “We also achieved what is known as a ‘negative group velocity,’ a situation in which the peak of the output pulse exits the filter before the peak of the input pulse has reached the beginning of the filter,” explained Robertson. “Using the definition for speed as being equal to distance divided by time, we measured a negative time and thus realized a negative velocity.”It might not seem that a negative velocity would exceed the speed of light, but in this case, Robertson said, the speed of the pulse is actually much faster than c. “Consider the pulse speed in a slightly less dramatic case,” Robertson said. “Say the peak of the output pulse exits the filter at exactly the same time as the input pulse reaches the beginning. In this less dramatic case, the transit time is zero and the speed (distance divided by zero) is infinite. So we were beyond infinite! (‘To infinity and beyond,’ to steal a line from Toy Story.) In our experiment, we measured a negative transit time corresponding to a negative group velocity of -52 m/s.”Although such results may at first appear to violate special relativity (Einstein’s law that no material object can exceed the speed of light), the actual significance of these experiments is a little different. These types of superluminal phenomena, Robertson et al. explain, violate neither causality nor special relativity, nor do they enable information to travel faster than c. In fact, theoretical work had predicted that the superluminal speed of the group velocity of sound waves should exist.“The key to understanding this seeming paradox is that no wave energy exceeded the speed of light,” said Robertson. “Because we were passing the pulse through a filter, the sped-up pulse was much smaller (by more than a factor of 10) than the input pulse. Essentially, the pulse that made it through the filter was an exact (but smaller) replica of the input pulse. This replica is carved from the leading edge of the input pulse. At all times, the net energy of the wave crossing the filter region was equal to, or less than, the energy that would have arrived if the input pulse had been traveling in a straight pipe instead of through the filter.”Is this phenomenon simply the result of a clever set-up, or can it actually occur in the real world? According to the scientists, the interference that occurs in the loop filter is directly analogous to the “comb filtering” effect in architectural acoustics, where sound interference occurs between sound directly from a source and that reflected by a hard surface.“The superluminal acoustic effect we have described is likely a ubiquitous but imperceptible phenomenon in the everyday world,” the scientists conclude.Citation: Robertson, W., Pappafotis, J., Flannigan, P., Cathey, J., Cathey, B., and Klaus, C. “Sound beyond the speed of light: Measurement of negative group velocity in an acoustic loop filter.” Applied Physics Letters 90, 014102 (2007).By Lisa Zyga, Copyright 2006 PhysOrg.com.

In the latter case, the peak of the output pulse traveling through the loop filter exited the filter before the peak of the input pulse had reached the beginning of the filter. Image credit: Bill Robertson, et al. Past experiments have demonstrated that the group velocities of other materials’ components—such as optical, microwave, and electrical pulses—can exceed the speed of light. But while the individual spectral components of these pulses have velocities very close to c, the components of sound waves are almost six orders of magnitude slower than light (compare 340 m/s to 300,000,000 m/s).“All of the interest in fast (and slow) wave velocity for all types of waves (optical, electrical, and acoustic) was initially to gain a fundamental understanding of the characteristics of wave propagation,” Robertson told PhysOrg.com. “Phase manipulation can change the phase relationship between these materials’ components. Using sound to create a group velocity that exceeds the speed of light is significant here because it dramatically illustrates this point, due to the large difference between the speeds of sound and light.”The experiment was conducted by two undergrads, an area high school teacher and two high school students, who received funding by an NSF STEP (Science, technology, engineering, math Talent Enhancement Program) grant. The grant aims to increase recruitment and retention of students to these subjects.In their experiment, the researchers achieved superluminal sound velocity by rephasing the spectral components of the sound pulses, which later recombine to form an identical-looking part of the pulse much further along within the pulse. So it’s not the actual sound waves that exceed c, but the waves’ “group velocity,” or the “length of the sample divided by the time taken for the peak of a pulse to traverse the sample.” “The sound-faster-than-light result will not be a surprise to the folks who work closely in this area because they recognize that the group velocity (the velocity that the peak of a pulse moves) is not merely connected to the velocity of all of the frequencies that superpose to create that pulse,” explained Robertson, “but rather to the manner in which a material or a filter changes the phase relationship between these components. By appropriate phase manipulation (rephasing) the group velocity can be increased or decreased.”
It begins with Aleister Crowley. Crowley was a British writer, mountaineer, and occultist practitioner of “magick.” He was a very controversial figure in his own time, with relatively few followers, but became something of a cult figure after his death. In 1898 he became involved in occultism and joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, an organization with Rosicrucian (an order of mystics) roots.A year later he left the Golden Dawn, and went to found his own esoteric order. Crowley reported having mystical experiences during a visit to Egypt in 1904 and wrote the Book of Law, which he claimed a spirit had dictated to him. One of the basic precepts of the book was “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law,” and Crowley made it the basis for new religion, Thelema.Aleister Crowley.He was known for the use of drugs, and for a sexual liberation that was ahead of his time. He combined both with ritual magick to achieve altered states of mind. Opinions on the sort of person he was are wildly variable, depending on where you look.Despite the fact that Crowley died in 1947, many of his views and philosophies helped shape the views of the ‘60s counterculture, and so did his mysticism.Beatles in August 1966As the Beatles Era morphed into the psychedelic movement of the late 1960s, and a variety of recreational drugs came into more common use, musicians of the time, and their fans, began looking for something farther removed from the mainstream.Abbey of Thelema, 2017.It was around this time that Jimmy Page started to become interested in Crowley and his writings. Page’s band, Led Zeppelin, released their first album in 1969, and they were gaining in popularity.According to Car Wreck DeBangs, this was about the time that Page asked his bandmates to join him in a magick ritual, based on Crowley’s writings, to help the band.All of them participated in the spell except for John Paul Jones, who kept well clear of the whole thing.Led Zeppelin.

Photo by Joshrhinehart CC BY-SA 3.0First, Robert Plant and his family were nearly killed when their car went off a cliff in Greece. The accident forced the band to cancel the rest of their Physical Graffiti tour and delayed the recording of their next album. When they began the make-up tour, it was plagued by bad luck.For example, Plant got laryngitis after the band shipped all their equipment and instruments to the U.S. for the tour, which made rehearsing impossible. We Do It For The Love Of Music also mentions ticketless fans rioting and John Bonham and the band’s manager, Peter Grant, beating up Bill Graham.Finally, Plant’s son became ill and died, in 1977. Page and Jones didn’t attend the funeral, prompting Plant to consider leaving the band. Finally, in 1980 Bonham died, and the remaining band members decided that they just couldn’t bring themselves to keep the group going, so Led Zeppelin broke up.Read another story from us: An angry aristocrat of the Zeppelin family once forced Led Zeppelin to change their name to play a single show in CopenhagenCurse, coincidence, or the price of playing with the forces of the unknown: no matter what the cause, Led Zeppelin paid a high price for their success.

Just weeks after arsonists attacked the headquarter of Lithuanian LGBT group by setting the door on fire, another arson took place in Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital. The corridor outside the apartment of gay director Romas Zabarauskas was set on fire on the night of 2 September. | Photo: supplied Openly gay director Romas Zabarauskas had simply put up a rainbow flag on the balcony of his apartment.Someone set the whole corridor outside his apartment on fire on the night of 2 September. Zabarauskas recalled waking up to the sound of firemen knocking on his neighbor’s door.Refusing to file a possible anti-LGBTI hate crime motive, the law enforcement officer instead suggested to ‘take off the flag before the whole house has burnt’.‘Take the flag down’Zabarauskas placed a rainbow flag on his balcony in solidarity with LGL. | Photo: suppliedAlthough it was originally believed that it was Zabarauskas’s doorstep, the director later clarified that it was his neighbor’s door. His apartment is located on the same level.Zabarauskas believes his being part of the LGBTI community might be the reason behind it.‘My neighbor’s apartment was set on fire on Saturday night, not mine. However, we suspect it could be linked to me, as I recently placed a rainbow flag in my balcony to express solidarity with the LGBT organization LGL and its leader who were both victims of similar arsonist attacks weeks ago,’ he wrote.He also explained how the police reacted to the incident.‘The policemen reacted not professionally to my initiative to explain them this context during that night,’ he told Gay Star News.‘And the policewoman told me repeatedly to take down the flag “before the whole house burns down.”‘ GAYSTARNEWS- Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Hundreds of Lithuanians bravely fly Pride flag after arson attacksArsonist attacks Lithuania LGBT rights group office, set door aflame at 4amRussia releases homoerotic video to get people to vote in electionsRead the full article on Gaystarnews: :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/arsonist-targeted-lithuanian-gay-director-in-a-possible-homophobic-attack/ Lithuania expresses support to the LGBTI communityDirector Romas Zabarauskas has been living in that apartment with his boyfriend since 2015. | Photo: supplied‘We’re trying to turn it into a positive experience,’ Zabarauskas told Gay Star News.He says he and his boyfriend are receiving support from the whole community, unfurling rainbow flags and tweeting with the hashtag #LGBTdraugiškaLietuva (‘LGBT friendly Lithuania’).The director is also encouraging people to buy more flags.‘I realized it’s not that easy to buy one in Lithuania, and it’s expensive to ship. So immediately the day after the fire, I initiated a fundraiser overnight. Lithuanians raised enough funds to buy and ship 500 rainbow flags and distribute them for free,’ he explained.‘Lithuania is a free country and no one can tell me or anyone else what to showcase in their window.’Zabarauskas also said that Mark Adam Harold, a Vilnius City Council Member, placed a rainbow flag at the municipality in solidarity.After his official complaint, he pointed out police is now looking into homophobia as a possible motive for the attack.Lithuanian LGBT activists are in dangerVladimir Simonko, co-founder of the Lithuanian Gay League believes the pattern of similar arson attempts sows fear amongst the LGBT community. Furthermore, he said these attacks expose the police’s inadequate response.‘LGBT activists are in danger,’ said Simonko.‘Today it’s the LGBT community.

gets thrown around like a two-pound dumbbell But when it comes to high-intensity interval training (HIIT) a very short workout the benefits youve heard about are both legitimate andwell say itmiraculous HIIT is a combination of brief very-high intensity bursts of cardio exercise followed by equal or longer periods of rest Think 30 seconds to a minute of sprinting followed by a minute or two of walking or slow jogging Repeat this cycle for just 10 minutes and youll complete a HIIT workout "We now have more than 10 years of data showing HIIT yields pretty much the exact same health and fitness benefits as long-term aerobic exercise and in some groups or populations it works better than traditional aerobic exercise" says Todd Astorino a professor of kinesiology at California State University San Marcos who has published more than a dozen study papers on HIIT Whether your goal is to improve your fitness lower your risk for cardiovascular disease lose weight strengthen skeletal muscle or help get your blood sugar under control a few minutes of HIIT seem to be as effective as much longer periods of moderate-paced running cycling swimming or other forms of traditional cardio For well-trained athletes HIIT may be the best way to elevate your physical performance MORE: The TIME Guide To Exercise One small study of healthy but sedentary people found just one minute total of HIIT performed three days a week for six weeks was enough to significantly improve blood sugar scores and aerobic capacity a measure of physical fitness The study participants completed 10- to 20-second bouts of "all-out" cycling on a stationary bike each broken up by a couple minutes of rest The total workout time start to finish was 10 minutes Other research finds that HIIT may outperform traditional cardio when it comes to fat loss A HIIT-induced surge in your bodys levels of growth hormones and other organic compounds "can increase fat burning and energy expenditure for hours after exercise" says study author Stephen Boutcher an associate professor of medical sciences at the University of New South Wales in Australia It doesn’t just work for the young fit and healthy Among people with heart disease HIIT improves cardiorespiratory fitness nearly twice as much as longer stretches of moderate-intensity running cycling or other aerobic exercises one review study concluded MORE: Why You Dont Have to Exercise Every Day How can HIIT do so much good in so little time During very intense exercise "the heart cannot pump enough blood to satisfy all the muscles" says Ulrik Wisløff a HIIT researcher and head of the cardiac exercise research group at the Norwegian School of Science and Technology This lacking oxygen delivery to the muscles starts a "cascade of molecular responses in most organs of the body" that produces a greater training response than more leisurely bouts of exercise he says Exercise of any intensity switches on genes that increase the growth of mitochondriathe power generators of the cellsand triggers all of the other beneficial biological changes linked with physical fitness says Astorino "But to activate these genes with traditional cardiovascular exercises you have to do fairly large or long bouts" he says With HIIT it appears that even very short bouts of training can switch on those genes so it’s an efficient workout HIIT can work for a wide range of people But how you should practice it depends on your fitness level The key to HIIT is pushing your heart rate up above 80% of its maximum Astorino says "Subtract your age from 220 to estimate your maximal heart rate" he says (A heart rate monitor can provide an accurate assessment But if youre really sucking wind after pushing yourself you’ve probably hit your target Astorino says) MORE: 7 Surprising Benefits Of Exercise If youre fit try sprint interval training After walking or slow jogging for a few minutes to warm up sprint as hard as you can for 30 seconds then recover for four minutes by walking or jogging slowly Complete four to six sets of this sprinting-recovery program (For an even faster version keep the warmup then complete three sets of 20-second sprints each separated by two minutes of recovery Astorino says) If youre overweight or obese and you havent exercised in months sprinting isnt necessary (or safe for your joints) Instead 30 seconds to four minutes of brisk walking on an inclined treadmill or hill should be enough to push your heart rate up into the HIIT zone Astorino says You can also practice these programs with a stationary bike rowing machine or in the pool Any form of cardio can push your heart into the HIIT zone Wisløff says (This fact sheet from the American College of Sports Medicine offers more in-depth details on how to design a HIIT program) And yes HIIT is safe Wisløff and colleagues analyzed nearly 50000 hours of HIIT data collected from cardiovascular disease patients in Norway In seven years of data he turned up just two instances of (non-fatal) cardiac arrest He says people with unstable angina or serious heart issues should speak with their doctor first But in general "its much more dangerous not to perform HIIT than to perform it" he says Contact us at editors@timecom Chennai travel to Bengaluru to meet BFC,爱上海BV, the deluge of questions that follow will be harder than the act
