By Chloé KouraRabat – Fresh from his $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia, US President Donald Trump has touched down in Israel with a view to restarting peace talks between Israel and Palestine.To the Chagrin of the Israelis, President Trump’s Latest Position towards Saudi Arabia reflects a 180 degree pivot from last year. Prior to his election, Trump had vocally criticised Saudi Arabia and called for it to “pay dearly” for America’s help in its “saving from total extinction,” yet he now dances with Saudi ministers and has signed a defence deal with Kingdom for $110 billion, worth $350 billion over the next ten years. In comments reminiscent of the US sale of fighter jets to Saudi Arabia in the 1980s, Israel’s Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said that Trump’s arms deal with “hostile” Saudi Arabia “is a matter that really should trouble us,” especially given that Israel signed a ten-year defence deal with the US worth $38 billion only last year.Steinitz said it is also necessary that Saudi Arabia’s weapons deal does not “erode Israel’s qualitative edge.”For all their differences, Israel and Saudi Arabia share a mutual enemy in a nuclear Iran, especially in light of the re-election of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who will be more challenging to undermine than his Anti-American opponent Ibrahim Raisi.Dan Diker, leader of a counter-political warfare project at Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, notes that the “convergence of concern between Israel, the Sunni Arab states and President Trump’s administration creates the possibility for real coordination and cooperation between Israel and the Arab world.”Trump’s Arrival in Israel is to Mixed OpinionUpon landing, Israeli President Rivlin called him “the President of Israel’s greatest, most important ally…a true friend of Israel and of the Jewish people,” yet Haaretz reported that Netanyahu had to order his ministers to attend Trump’s reception.The US president’s itinerary includes a visit to the Western Wall without Benjamin Netanyahu, so as not to confirm the White House’s stance as to whom this area belongs, as well as a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.Ten days ago Trump’s National Security Adviser, General H.R. McMaster, stated that along with solidifying America’s “unshakeable bond to the Jewish state”, Trump’s trip would encourage lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Trump himself has said that he wants Israel to stop expanding its settlements, and he wants Palestinians to stop inciting Israelis.In February, the US President appeared to be heading away from the US’s traditional policy of a two-state solution when he said that he was not onlt “looking at two-state and one-state”, but that he “can live with either one”.Since then, the President has seemingly fallen back in line, and Jason Greenblatt, his envoy for international negotiations, has visited Israeli, Palestinian and Arab leaders to pave the way for new negotiations. As to whether Trump and his administration can make real progress in the Middle East, only time will tell.
MONTREAL — Bombardier Inc.’s rail division has received an order worth about US$444 million from France’s national railway company.The 32 double-deck trainsets — with a total of 256 cars — will be used on three inter-city lines connecting the Centre-Val de Loire region and Paris.Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) says deliveries will be made from 2020 through 2022.The order is part of a 2010 contract for Bombardier to supply up to 860 double-deck trains for French regions through SNCF Mobilites, the country’s national rail company.To date, 10 French regions have ordered a total of 373 Omneo or Regio 2N trains under the contract.
The Buckeyes celebrate following the game against Michigan State on Jan. 7 in Value City Arena. Ohio State won 80-64. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorWhen members of Ohio State’s men’s basketball teams are introduced this season, a bright flame shoots up from on top of the hoop to signal the entrance of the player.That flame did not go off Monday night, and the Buckeyes seemingly followed suit.There was no fire in the Buckeyes early on. No energy. Ohio State came out slow to start the game, making just two field goals over the first seven and a half minutes of the game. The team finished the first half with just 24 points, it’s lowest single-half total since its 86-59 loss to Gonzaga.It had no business winning the game against Nebraska. It did anyway. The Ohio State team last season, which finished with a 17-15 record, would have watched Nebraska junior guard James Palmer Jr. knock down back-to-back 3-pointers to tie and subsequently give his team the lead with seven minutes left in the game and crumbled away.But the Ohio State team this season — which already has an 18-5 record and perfect 9-0 Big Ten record — fought back, seemingly getting stronger as the stakes got higher and managed to salvage the game for a 64-59 win.“Were there like four times they were dead in the water, jumping out of bounds to save a ball and somehow, like Dakich is standing in the corner wide-open, I’m like, ‘How the heck did he get that?’” Nebraska head coach Tim Miles said.The win for Ohio State is just the latest in a season full of unexpected wins. The Buckeyes were not expected to do much of anything before the season began. This looked like a rebuilding year. But now the No. 13 team in the nation, Ohio State is in anything but a rebuilding year.Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said after the game he never knows how to answer questions about what a win means for a team. This win alone did not mean much. This win in the context of the rest of the season is just a sign of how fast a team has come together.“Listen, I don’t want to take this for granted. I’ve never been a part of anything like this. And I don’t know that I ever will again,” Holtmann said. “You don’t start 9-0 in conference play. So I don’t want to take that for granted. It’s been an amazing run and just hopefully we can continue it.”Hearing a coach say that a team is “buying into” the message a news coaching staff brings in its first season sounds like coach-speak at the beginning of the season when the team is beating up on clearly inferior opponents.But now this deep into the season, it no longer sounds like coach-speak. There is something about this team and these players that can seemingly only be attributed to “buying into” the coaching staff.“It didn’t happen overnight,” senior forward Jae’Sean Tate said. “In my opinion, I’ve never been on a team where so many people buy in. Like there’s no hidden agendas in our locker room. None. You don’t see that a lot . . . Everybody’s buying in. Everybody’s playing with with heart, effort and you know we’re not afraid to call each other out on it.”This level of commitment is not foreign to a team hiring Holtmann for the first time. Holtmann was an assistant coach under Brandon Miller at Butler when the Bulldogs endured a major down-year. The season prior under now-Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, the team went 27-9 and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. But Miller’s team found less success, struggling to a 14-17 season. The following offseason, Miller left due to medical issues, leaving Holtmann as the head coach.Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann coaches Kaleb Wesson (34) on the sideline in the second half of an exhibition win against Wooster on Nov. 5, 2017 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing Editor for ContentThat team turned around immediately, finishing 23-11 and again reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Holtmann said that losing season transformed the players into a “hungry group,” motivated to again find success. When he joined an Ohio State team that missed the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season, he saw a similarly hungry group.“I think some of what happened last year has allowed this group to be even hungrier, so I think we as a coaching staff have probably benefited from that to some degree,” Holtmann said. “I think my time at Butler, it happened pretty quickly. But I had been there a year as an assistant, so it was easier. But I did not expect this group to be as connected to us so quickly.”Everyone who doubted the Buckeyes at the beginning of the season has looked for answers to why this team managed to turn a dismal 2016-17 campaign into one of the best teams in the country. Is it the fact redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop is averaging nearly 20 points per game? Or perhaps it has more to do with emergence of junior guard C.J. Jackson?Both those are major factors in the turnaround, but the mentality and morale around this team is just different than it was last year. It isn’t a program that is defeated at halftime of some games. It is a team that fights till the end of every game with maximum effort.That fire won’t always be there at the start of every game. But with the way Ohio State has played to this point in the year, that flame can seemingly always be counted on in the end.
An Australian startup company is launching a hard hat that does much more than just protect heads— it literally can warn the wearer of an imminent danger and suggest solutions to problems. The eHat innovation is a great safety tool, that improves communications and improves efficiencies. At the same time it is a great way to transfer knowledge to anyone working in a remote location.The eHat system is a brand new way of quickly and efficiently transferring knowledge to anyone working in an external industrial site. It can be used to improve productivity and lower training costs. The eHat system revolves around a video/audio streaming hardhat, which is connected via a smartphone back to a central location, either a site office or a head office in another state or country.The user of the eHat can make conference calls to the company’s own experts or trainers or to the eHatsystems network team of experts and trainers.The eHat System is a safety hat with a high definition video camera, microphone and headset and some smart software that allows it to communicate over WiFi to an approved Smartphone back to your subject matter specialist.The company expects early adopters will be mining companies. Pit geologists, engineers, process staff, surveyors, etc. could wear the hats whilst they go about their daily activities and when they need to communicate or receive input from others whilst in the field they can easily turn the hat on to communicate.Imagine wearing an eHat during a day in the field, senior management a continent away could watch the eHat transmissions to gauge progress live as it happens on site. Specialists such as engineers and metallurgists could watch on to see tasks are being completed properly and provide advice, live.Field employees on mine projects or exploration prospects can get direct feedback to problems. eHat can also represent huge savings, meaning senior managers don’t need to visit remote sites as often as they are receiving live feeds of site activities

THE REVENUE COMMISSIONERS are moving to introduce a new ‘marker’ system for distinguishing lower-taxed fuel, in a bid to crackdown on illegal laundering in the border region.Jim Higgins, MEP, said that “rigorous testing” of the potential new marker is currently underway. Higgins said the marker system currently in place dates back to the 1950s and is an “ineffective deterrent for today’s criminals”.Diesel designated for agricultural or industrial purposes is privy to lower tax and duty rates and is dyed green as a marker to differentiate it from regular fuel.However criminals use acid to wash the dye from the agri-fuel so they can pass it off as regular, full-priced diesel. The toxic waste that results from diesel washing is often dumped along the border, with clean-up operations in Counties Monaghan and Louth alone already costing in excess over €4 million.Higgins said that technical testing is underway of 12 submissions received in order to establish the resistance of any potential new marker to existing and evolving laundering techniques. It is expected that the evaluation will be completed by the middle of this year.This latest update follows the introduction of new rules in January, requiring all licensed fuel traders to make monthly returns of fuel movements and transactions.Read: Oil laundering plant uncovered in Louth>Read: Revenue close down 38 filling stations this year in black market crackdown>
Typhon Fanapi : Taïwan sévèrement touchée, la Chine menacéeAsie du sud-est – Un typhon baptisé Fanapi a frappé Taïwan dimanche 19 septembre, faisant plus de 100 blessés et de nombreux dégâts. La dépression se dirige maintenant vers le sud de la Chine, où l’alerte a été lancée.Accompagné de fortes pluies, le typhon Fanapi classé en catégorie 3 a balayé dimanche l’île de Taïwan. Le vent, soufflant jusqu’à 220 km/h, a fait voler de nombreux débris, qui ont blessé plus de 100 personnes, selon l’agence nationale de secours. Les inondations ont contraint les militaires à utiliser des engins amphibies pour secourir des sinistrés à Kaohsiung, deuxième ville de l’île, où l’eau est parfois montée jusqu’au premier étage des habitations. Des bureaux et des écoles ont été provisoirement fermés, ainsi qu’une dizaine d’usines du complexe pétrochimique de la région de Kaohsiung. En perte de puissance, avec tout de même des vents à 125 km/h et des pluies torrentielles, le typhon se dirigeait lundi vers Hong-Kong, atteignant le matin les provinces côtières du Fujian et du Guangdong, en Chine méridionale. Les autorités provinciales, en alerte, ont fait bloquer dans les ports plus de 100.000 bateaux. Une digue s’est déjà écroulée dans la ville de Quanzhou. Des inondations et des glissements de terrain pourraient affecter toute la province de Guangdong.Le 20 septembre 2010 à 13:02 • Emmanuel Perrin
West Ham’s boss Manuel Pellegrini hailed his team’s effort despite losing their lead late in the game to settle for a 1-1 draw at Leicester City.Pellegrini’s men took a 1-0 lead thanks to Fabian Balbuena’s close-range finish but went one man down when Mark Noble was shown a straight red in the 37th-minute red card for a high challenge on Ndidi.The former City boss felt the Hammers deserved more from the tie but praised the mentality of his side on the pitch.“The mood in the dressing room was not that we’ve got a good point,” he told the club’s site.“Playing away with one player less for 60 minutes of the game, most of the time you are happy [with a point], but not in this case because we were very unlucky with the goal that Leicester scored and after the goal, we had another opportunity to score.Report: England’s Rice gets death threats George Patchias – September 9, 2019 England International Declan Rice has received death threats.Rice a one time Ireland International, switched allegiances only this year. The West Ham United man played for…“I’m very proud of the way the team is playing, the way the team is thinking like a big team, and the mentality of the players is to try to win away.“When it was eleven v eleven, we were playing really well and after that, we defended very well.“I haven’t seen the red card back yet so I can’t give my opinion, but I always respect the decision of the referee.“Playing with that fight in the second half was the only way because we were winning 1-0, we had one player less and we had nine players out injured so we didn’t have too many chances to make changes from the bench.“The players who came in did very well also, and we defended with order and organisation.”

Alaska elections officials said Monday that they’ve asked criminal investigators to examine “irregularities” with absentee ballots in a hotly contested Anchorage House district — including seven absentees requested in the names of dead people.Listen nowThe irregularities are evidence of voter fraud, according to one state attorney, Margaret Paton-Walsh. But officials said they haven’t identified a particular campaign or candidate that’s responsible for them.Elections workers first noticed the irregularities before last week’s primary, which left the two Republican candidates in District 15, in East Anchorage — incumbent Gabrielle LeDoux and challenger Aaron Weaver — separated by three votes.There are 40 House districts in Alaska, but of all 70 absentee ballots that were returned as undeliverable, more than half came from District 15, the Division of Elections said in a statement Monday.The state’s review continued after the election. Elections workers ultimately found two people who said they hadn’t voted in spite of the fact that absentee ballots had been submitted in their names, the division said.Those votes won’t be counted. And when the state does count the absentee votes from District 15, starting Tuesday, it will take the unusual step of ensuring each ballot remains linked to the envelope it arrived in. That way, any votes subsequently found to be invalid can be subtracted, the division said.“The integrity of our elections is vital to our democracy,” Josie Bahnke, the state elections director, said in the statement. “The division will continue to look into this matter throughout the week and remove any ballots that we determine should not be counted.”The number of ballots that raise authenticity concerns are a small fraction of the 300 that haven’t been counted — an estimated 10 to 20 ballots, according to Paton-Walsh.The House race has been closely watched because of LeDoux’s position in the state House majority: She and two other Republicans infuriated GOP leaders in 2016 by joining 17 Democrats and two independents to form the chamber’s ruling coalition. LeDoux was awarded a spot in leadership and chairmanship of the House Rules Committee, which gives her control over which bills move to the floor for a vote.The Alaska Republican Party backed Weaver, LeDoux’s primary challenger. But Weaver, a former television cameraman, raised little money and said he barely campaigned. LeDoux is known as an energetic campaigner, and political observers — including state GOP leaders — said they were shocked that the primary results were so close.Each side will likely be carefully scrutinizing absentee ballots when the count starts Tuesday. Elections officials briefed LeDoux and Republican Party officials Monday afternoon.LeDoux, accompanied by attorney Tom Amodio, wouldn’t answer questions on her way out of the election division’s Anchorage office Monday, saying, “No comment.”An attorney representing the Alaska Republican Party, Stacey Stone, said she’s been satisfied with the state’s review of the absentee ballots.“There are questions and they’re being resolved and the division seems to be taking the appropriate scrutiny to make sure those questions are answered,” Stone said.
Managing director for Asia and the Pacific at European External Action Service Gunnar Wiegand and foreign secretary M Shahidul Haque addressing the media following EU-Bangladesh consultation meeting in Dhaka on Thursday. — Photo: UNBThe European Union (EU) expects free, fair, credible and transparent elections in Bangladesh as the nation goes to national elections by the end of this year.After a meeting with Bangladesh officials in Dhaka on Thursday, a top diplomat of the bloc expressed its ‘expectation’, as a number of overseas players made similar call for holding inclusive elections in the country.”We are looking forward to free, fair, credible and transparent elections in this country,” UNB quoted managing director for Asia and the Pacific at European External Action Service Gunnar Wiegand as saying.They discussed preparations on this, he said talking to reporters at state guesthouse Padma after the third diplomatic consultations between Bangladesh and the EU.Bangladesh saw a one-sided elections in January 2014, boycotted by all major opposition parties that demanding poll-time caretaker government for holding free, fair, and credible elections.In the meeting, both sides discussed a wide range of issues of common interest including political developments on both sides.On the Rohingya issue, the EU diplomat said they will continue to support the Rohingyas to ease burden on Bangladesh and expect that other countries will also come forward.Trade and investment, matters of regional and global interest where the EU and Bangladesh can intensify collaboration were also discussed in the meeting that held at state guesthouse Meghna.Issues relating to migration, peace and security and Agenda 2030 will also be discussed.Foreign secretary M Shahidul Haque and his EU counterpart Gunnar Wiegand led Bangladesh and EU sides respectively in the meeting.Wiegand said the EU stands in solidarity with Bangladesh in helping Rohingyas living in Bangladesh which is an enormous burden for the host country.He highly appreciated Bangladesh’s effort in this regard and assured of their continuous support to address the plight of Rohingyas.”But more needs to be done,” Wiegand said adding that they want to see the first batch of returnees after required conditions are created for safe, voluntary and dignified return of Rohingyas to their homeland.He also appreciated progress made so far in terms of engagement with UN agencies with Bangladesh and Myanmar in finding a solution to Rohingya crisis.On migration issues, the EU diplomat said they have had a problem with irregular migrants from Bangladesh to Europe. “We welcome regular migration but we do not welcome irregular migration.”He said they are in discussion to ensure return of irregular migrants with “full transparency and amicable way.”Earlier, the government signed standard operating procedures (SOPs) with the European Union on return of genuine Bangladesh migrants with no right to stay in the EU member countries.The EU member countries, according to the SOPs, would be able to repatriate irregular Bangladesh nationals only after exhausting all administrative and judicial procedures of respective sending countries and subject to verification of their nationality.Foreign secretary Haq said they had very fruitful and interactive discussions and they looked at all aspects of relationship – political, social and developmental issues with special focus on Rohingya issue.”We have also discussed SDGs (sustainable development goals) implementation and migration issue,” he said.EU ambassador in Dhaka Rensje Teerink and senior foreign ministry officials, among others, were present.The second diplomatic consultation between Bangladesh and the EU was held on 15 February last year in Brussels.
Night of the Living Dummy IISlappy the ventriloquist dummy is easily the series most iconic character next to Curly (that skeleton with an ascot and mohawk…) His look changed a bit for the television series, but the dummy still kept a very sinister look throughout the shows run. This episode, in particular, was his best. Most took it as a Child’s Play for kids. I saw it more like a spooky version of Toy Story. Just think about it; girl throws aside old ventriloquist dummy for a new one. Old one possesses new one to really have some fun with the family. Truly a tale of nightmares. The Haunted Mask Parts 1 & 2 These two episodes are the quintessential episodes for any fan. I remember watching the first Haunted Mask on Halloween night and it was everything. Checking it out decades later, it’s a tad rough. But it still holds a ton of fun moments. Carly Beth’s story of being trapped inside a mask having it take over is horrifying. Imagine reaching for the neckline of a mask and not being able to find it. The mask is cured and starts taking over its host, just as it does to Carly Beth’s bully Steve in the sequel. I appreciate the second Haunted Mask a bit more, especially since everyone is back from the first. That is, all but Steve who was re-cast. We get to really see what the mask wants in the sequel and more terror is afoot in the streets. These two are easily my top picks of the series. Attack of the Jack o’lanternsDrew really loves Halloween night, but jerk kids at her school ruin the holiday for her and stop her from trick or treating. This year she wants to change all of that. But little does she know a lot more is going to change for her and her friends. This is a story of too much of a good thing. Imagine if every day was Halloween! Sounds good in theory, but it could be downright terrifying going door to door for the rest of your life. This episode is a tad cheesy in the end but is a great addition to any Goosebump Halloween marathons you may throw this season. New, All-Color Tamagotchi to Hit Store Shelves in JulyVintage Shelf: Video Game Movies Are Bad But ‘Double Dragon’ Is a Good Time Stay on target Some of you may be asking why One Day at Horrorland is not part of this list? That is because parts one and two of the television series really did not do the original story justice. There was barely a Horrorland to begin with and lots of the story never made it into the show. Instead, seek out the Goosebumps PC game Escape from Horrorland that stars Isabella Rossellini and Jeff Goldblum. It was practically Goosebumps the movie before that Jack Black film showed up on the scene late last year. So before the new film hits theaters this September, why not sit back and take a stroll down memory lane with these spooktastic episodes. Viewer beware, you’re in for a scare!We’ve done the exhaustive work of ranking every Goosebumps book for your reading pleasure. We even broke down the 11 most formidable villains from the series. Dive more in the spooky nostalgia with the most terrifying episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark? Follow all the best of the 90s resurgence here. The Girl Who Cried MonsterWhat I loved about this one is that it felt like a classic Are You Afraid of the Dark? Episode. They were basically EC Comic tales of horror where the story is going one way, and then I fun twist completely blindsides you. This was a time before M. Night butchered fun horror twists. This was the eighth book in the series and told the story of Lucy who just wanted to join a normal summer reading program at her library. Sadly for Lucy, a monster who eats bugs is in charge of the program. After her parents don’t believe her cries for help, she fears all hope is lost. I won’t spoil the twist, but it’s finger licking good. When the Scholastic Book Fair came around to schools in the early 90’s, kids would flock to pick up the newest Goosebumps book. From author R.L. Stine’s bone-chilling standalone tales of terror to the series later ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ titles; Goosebumps was a universal hit with almost every grade school student. It’s no wonder Saban International wanted to develop and distribute a television series that kept kids up at night.The show premiered in 1995 on Ytv in Canada where the series was developed and then quickly thereafter aired here in the states on Fox Kids. It would run for four seasons and later syndicate on Fox Family (now Freeform), Cartoon Network, Disney’s The Hub and now Netflix. Honestly, I felt the television series suffered a lot of missteps. Especially when Ytv’s earlier children’s horror series Are You Afraid of the Dark? really told some fantastic horror tales and did’t feel cheesy. That is why I’m sifting through all the bad Monster Blood and bringing you my top five Goosebump tales of terror! Say Cheese and DieWhen a lot of people think of Goosebumps, they remember that iconic cover of skeletons at a bar-b-q on a Polaroid photo. This episode is probably one of the best adapted from the series (even if they screwed up the photo a bit.) Our main character Greg is played by a young Ryan Gosling who believes a camera he found can tell the ghastly future. Or is the camera itself causing the unfortunate outcomes of everyone around him? This episode isn’t as cringe-worthy as most of the series and feels like a fun Final Destination for kids. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Overall the experiments showed how a nanoscale chemical reaction of cerium compounds can increase the conductivity of the surrounding carbon nanotubes. By using nanochemistry to controllably alter the nanotubes’ electric properties, researchers may be a step closer to using nanotubes for electronics applications.“Our nano test tube chemistry allows a clean, slow and defined growth of carbon nanotubes,” said Shiozawa. “Individual chemistry events can be observed at the elemental level when materials are confined within the nano test tube. This nanochemistry process can be applied for studying the growth mechanism of carbon nanotubes. Its conceptual advance would be for any chemical reactions in general. We showed that doping of the host carbon nanotube can be varied via encapsulations and chemical reactions of molecules. This process might be applied for modulating electrical properties of a SWCNT at the nanoscale and provides for better compatibility of carbon nanotubes with electronics.”Professor Ravi Silva, Director of the Advanced Technology Institute, added, “Our results are world-leading and will tell researchers and technologists working on the next generation of nanoelectronic devices some of the fundamental issues that must be taken into account in their design. We have shown that single atoms stuck on the surface of a carbon nanotube can have a tremendous effect on its electrical characteristics. The implications are widespread because these tubes are proposed to be used as wires in nano-scale integrated circuit chips within the next decade.”The study is published in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters, and the research was sponsored by a Portfolio Partnership award by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK.More information: H.

Explore further In a recent study, a team of scientists from the UK, Austria, Germany and Japan have experimented with nano test tube chemistry by performing electron doping of carbon nanotubes using cerium compounds. Doping provides a promising means of tuning the nanotubes’ bulk electronic properties. In addition to helping scientists understand nanoscale chemistry, these experiments also highlight the potential of using nanotubes in future electronic devices.“We used nano test tube chemistry to functionalize the electronic properties of carbon nanotubes,” lead author of the study Hidetsugu Shiozawa of the University of Surrey told PhysOrg.com. “This allowed us to observe a fundamental physical phenomenon in bulk carbon nanotubes associated with a transition from semiconducting tubes to metallic.”In their experiments, the researchers sealed a combination of carbon nanotube material and cerium organometallic compounds in a Pyrex tube, and annealed them at temperatures of up to 200°C (392°F). After annealing, the researchers observed SWCNTs containing cerium molecules. Further annealing at 1000°C (1832°F) in vacuum allowed the researchers to transform the filled SWCNTs into double-walled carbon nanotubes containing cerium (Ce@DWCNT). The transmission electron micrographs show sharp lines, which are original nanotubes, inside of which are parallel lines and dark dots, which are inner tubes and cerium ions, respectively.The scientists were then able to extract electronic information from the cerium compounds in order to investigate the structures’ electronic properties. By measuring the energy of the emitted electrons using a method called resonance photoemission spectroscopy, the researchers found that the nanotube bundles had an increased density of conduction electrons after cerium doping, due to the transformation of the originally semiconducting nanotubes into metallic nanotubes.“When chemistry is performed in these nano test tubes, the reactions that occur get closer to a result of a single molecule reacting with another, instead of billions of molecules reacting with each other and with anything else we put into laboratory test tubes,” said Shiozawa. “The one-dimensionally quantized electronic states of carbon nanotubes allow specific molecules and compounds to interact, so we can monitor the encapsulated chemical reactions through the carbon nanotubes’ electronic states.” Citation: Nanochemistry in Action (2009, March 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-03-nanochemistry-action.html (Left) An illustration of the conversion of encapsulated cerium molecules to an inner nanotube.

In the active center of carbon dioxide conversion (PhysOrg.com) — Using a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) as a test tube, scientists can explore chemistry at the nanoscale, which involves some unique effects. Nanotubes provide a confined, one-dimensional space in which to isolate molecules, allowing nanoscale confinement effects to influence the chemical reactions. This document is subject to copyright.

Following the Federal Reserve’s decision to keep interest rates at historic lows, there is no shortage of reaction from analysts and economists across Wall Street. Here’s a quick look at what they think about the Fed standing pat.Peter Boockvar, Chief Market Analyst at The Lindsey Group:“While the economic commentary on the U.S. was not much different than the last statement, they added ‘recent global economic and financial developments may restrain economic activity somewhat and are likely to put further downward pressure on inflation in the near term.’ They see the risks to the outlook for economic activity and the labor market as nearly balanced but is ‘monitoring developments abroad.’ Jeff Lacker is the only one that stood out from the crowd with a dissent and the desire to raise 25 basis points. Bottom line, the problem now is not when the Fed will raise rates or not, it is the paralyzing discussion about when they will eventually raise rates. We get to do this all over again as the Committee continues to day trade every data point not only in the U.S. but now globally. They are the center of uncertainty and the multitude of excuses over the past few years has reached a tipping point that I don’t believe the stock market will continue to embrace.Kelsey Deshler, Fundamental Strategies Head for Credit Suisse Asset Management Alternative Fund Solutions:“I think it was the most prudent decision given the rout in commodities and emerging markets, as well as the fairly mixed domestic economic picture. Going forward, it seems to be a net positive for hedge funds, many of which stand to benefit when markets are driven more by fundamentals, rather than by central bank policy decisions.”Rob Bernstone, Managing Director in Equities Trading at Credit Suisse:“Really a question of expectations management- there is of course a lot of consensus on the direction of interest rates over the next year or so. It’s the velocity and magnitude of the move that many people are anxious to see, and therefore the commentary is the issue. So the language around any international headwinds is naturally drawing some attention. To that point, within the equity markets, there is obviously a potential divergence between the EM space and the US market- especially given recent volatility.”Phil Guarco, Global Head of Fixed Income at JP Morgan Private Bank:“I think the biggest thing is that we’re no longer just the U.S. anymore. Traditionally they have taken care of the U.S. … Now the world is our problem and they are just worried about, I think, about what it does to emerging markets. It’s definitely a dovish view…You run the risk of a policy mistake here, and that is if NAIRU is not lower and this is just a transitory period, these conditions of falling energy prices are masking what could be an overheating economy.”Andrew Grantham, Economist at CIBC World Markets:“Within the statement, the Fed seemed a little more upbeat on the domestic outlook, specifically the current trend in business investment. However, there was slightly greater concern regarding the international outlook. They are still looking for ‘some’ labor market improvement and to be ‘reasonably confident’ that inflation was on a path back to 2%. Once hikes do begin they may be even slower than had been forecasted before, with the median forecast for the end of 2016 and 2017 also 25bp lower than in the previous forecasts. What members think a ‘long-run’ rate will be was also lowered to 3.5 percent, from 3.75 percent. One member – Lacker – dissented, instead preferring an immediate rate increase. All told, it looks as if rates are still set to start rising this year, however there’ll only likely be one move and we’ll await Yellen’s comments regarding whether this is more likely to occur in October or December.”Michael Gapen and Rob Martin, Chief U.S. Economist and U.S. Economist at Barclays, respectively:“We expected the FOMC to signal a December lift-off, and the dots are one way to show conviction about lift-off this year. Although we see the statement as slightly more dovish than expected, we believe the majority of participants expect to hike rates this year. That said, we stand by our call for a March lift-off, as we continue to believe that the weak profile of inflation early next year will eventually push the FOMC out of 2015.”© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments Related posts:US Fed officials emphasize gradual tightening This will be the biggest question when the Fed starts raising rates China’s slowdown, financial mayhem cast long shadow across world Economists close in on spotting future recessions
“This is a perfect opportunity for the Indian Corporate and Incentive market to include a world class cricket experience as part of an incentive trip to Adelaide and is what we are focusing on with our drive into this market.” The Indian delegation was surprised to see a AUD $535 million upgrade to the oval. “In 2015, the ICC Cricket World Cup comes to Australia with one of the great rivalries, India v Pakistan playing in Adelaide March 4. “This part of the famil was certainly a highlight,” Adelaide Convention Bureau chief executive officer Damien Kitto said. The visitors were engaged by the historic scoreboard, one of the last in the world and treated to a tour of the Bradman Museum. Source = ETB News: T.N. While other parts of Australia focus on attracting the East Asian tourist dollar, South Australia is focusing its marketing on attracting Indian tourists. Adelaide Oval and Adelaide Convention Centre have hosted a business delegation from India to build interest in the ICC Cricket World Cup, with Adelaide hosting a game in February 2015.

NO FLY ZONE— Tyrann Mathieu (@Mathieu_Era) March 20, 2014 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The Cardinals are banking on a healthy and motivated Cromartie fitting in well opposite Pro Bowler Patrick Peterson in a talented defensive backfield.It’s about to be trouble, trouble, trouble. Dollar Bill voice— Patrick Peterson (@RealPeterson21) March 20, 2014 The former first-round pick of the San Diego Chargers in 2006 has 28 career interceptions. He has good speed and at 6-foot-2 and 210-pounds has excellent size for the position, but has been a bit inconsistent throughout the course of his career and by some metrics struggled in 2013.However, as ProFootballFocus.com noted, Cromartie’s issues last season could have been due to injury.How much of 2013 was down to an injured hip that he tried to play through? Otherwise the dropoff in Cromartie was steep as he was arguably one of the top three cornerbacks in the league based on his 2012 tape. Get back to that form and he’s as talented as it gets at the spot. The Arizona Cardinals have their cornerback.ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter was the first to report the team had come to an agreement on a one-year deal with New York Jet Antonio Cromartie, and the team has since confirmed the news.Financial terms of the deal are not yet known. Cromartie, 29, started all 16 games for the Jets last season, collecting 38 combined tackles along with three interceptions. He also made his third career Pro Bowl but was released on March 9. Comments Share Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories This type of contract is not new for the Cardinals since Steve Keim took over as GM and Bruce Arians as coach. Just last season the team added veterans Karlos Dansby, Eric Winston and Antoine Cason, among others, to similar deals.
