WatchWhat you need to know about changes coming to Canada Pension Plan

VANCOUVER — Finance Minister Bill Morneau met his provincial and territorial counterparts in Vancouver on Monday and reached an agreement with most of them to expand the Canada Pension Plan. Here is what you need to know about CPP and the proposed deal:[np_storybar title=”The dirty secret of a bigger CPP is that it’s to help bail out public-sector pension plans” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/fp-comment/philip-cross-the-dirty-secret-of-a-bigger-cpp-is-that-its-to-help-bail-out-public-sector-pension-plans”%5DPhilip Cross: The key issues surrounding public-service pension-plan benefits are mostly unspoken, both to their members and to taxpayers. Read on [/np_storybar]1) The system is designed so that each generation of workers pays for its own retirement. That makes it different from two other income replacement programs for seniors and retirees: old age security (OAS) and the guaranteed income supplement (GIS). Those measures are covered through general tax revenues, meaning that workers today pay taxes to raise the incomes of poorer seniors.2) CPP contribution rates have only been raised once in the last 20 years. In 1997, finance ministers agreed to a phased-in increase in contribution rates to ensure one generation of workers wasn’t paying for another generation’s retirement. The argument today is that the CPP should pay more in benefits and help those who aren’t saving enough for retirement. The argument against raising contribution rates is that it would hit workers’ wallets at a time when governments keep saying the economy is fragile.3)Crunching the numbersIncreasing the income replacement rate to one-third from one-quarter, meaning the maximum CPP benefit will be about $17,478 instead of about $13,000. — Increasing premiums on employers and employees by one per cent, meaning an extra $408 a year coming off paycheques. — Increased premiums will be phased in over seven years, starting in 2019. — Increasing by 14 per cent to $82,700 the maximum amount of income subject to CPP. — Expanding the refundable tax credit known as the federal working income tax benefit, to help low-income Canadians offset the increase in premiums.Federal government and provinces — minus Quebec and Manitoba — agree to new CPP dealCPP expansion may be centre stage, but Liberal changes to OAS may have the bigger economic impactCPP expansion threatens to benefit the tax collector more than the taxpayer4) Not every province has to have the CPP. Quebec has its own version. Saskatchewan has its own pension plan, but the payments are voluntary, acting more like a RRSP. Along with Quebec, Manitoba didn’t sign onto the deal on Monday.5) Ontario had planned to launch its own pension plan if changes weren’t made to CPP, but with Monday’s agreement-in-principle Canada’s most populous province said it will back away.6) Small business owners are against it. Mandatory matching contributions will also mean a jump in payroll expenses for employers, which the Canadian Federation of Independent Business condemned Tuesday as “a devastating move for Canadian workers and the economy in general.” The CFIB says 71 per cent of small business owners oppose a mandatory premium hike 67 say it would increase pressure to freeze or cut salaries  46 per cent say they would reduce investment in their business   35 per cent say it would force them to lay off employeesAnd from BMO chief economist Douglas Porter:As Ottawa notes, someone at the $55,000 income level will see their premiums rise by just $7/month in 2019. But, keep in mind that will increase to $34/month by 2023 when the contribution rate increase is fully implemented, while those with higher incomes will see premiums rise quite a bit more when the coverage level expands between 2023 and 2025. One immediate impact of this change is that Ontario’s proposed pension plan is now effectively scraped, so we finally have some clarity on that front. read more

Deer tick range greatly expanded

Long Point and Turkey Point have been regarded as hot-spots for the tick that spreads Lyme disease in recent years.However – based on last year’s field tests — the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit has determined that the tick species at issue can be found anywhere in Norfolk, much of west Haldimand, and in a large geographic area with Dunnville at its centre.Kris Lutzi, the health unit’s senior public health inspector, told Norfolk council this week that three cases of Lyme disease were confirmed in Norfolk and Norfolk last year. This is down from seven cases in 2017 and five cases in 2016.There was discussion at Tuesday’s meeting as to whether the proliferation of invasive phragmites in waterfront areas of Norfolk has expanded habitat for the deer tick that carries Lyme disease.Lutzi said he has never seen confirmation of a deer tick from a beach sand environment. Deer ticks, he said, prefer shaded, damp forest areas with abundant leaf litter and spindly undergrowth for climbing on to potential hosts.In counterpoint, Mayor Kristal Chopp said Turkey Point residents have shared reports to the contrary.Deer ticks are one reason Turkey Point residents have been concerned in recent years with the spread of invasive phragmites on the beachfront along Ordnance Avenue.While Lyme disease trends in the local area are headed in a positive direction, the same cannot be said for West Nile virus and eastern equine encephalitis virus.Lutzi said hot, wet weather in southern Ontario in the spring of 2018 created ideal conditions for the proliferation of mosquitoes – the carriers of West Nile and EEEV.Six cases of West Nile were confirmed in Haldimand and Norfolk last year, one of which was fatal. The victims ranged in age from late-40s to mid-80s. Lutzi added there is a possibility three of the local cases were contracted elsewhere in Ontario.As part of its monitoring program, the health unit tested 59 sites last year where mosquitoes breed. Five of these produced mosquitoes that tested positive for West Nile virus.Positive mosquitoes were confirmed in Simcoe, Caledonia, Dunnville and Cayuga. Tests on mosquitoes from Jarvis, Delhi, Port Dover and Port Rowan came back negative.The health unit isn’t sure field testing of this sort is useful given that local residents who came down with West Nile last year were not within range of areas where mosquitoes tested positive.“These results…reaffirm that personal precautions should be taken whether or not surveillance results indicate the presence of West Nile virus,” Lutzi says in his report.Also noteworthy was the return of EEEV after a nine-year absence. Four cases were confirmed in horses in Haldimand last year. EEEV is of interest to health officials because one human case was confirmed in Ontario in 2016.“Last year is a clear reminder that EEEV remains a threat locally,” Lutzi said. “Equine owners should ensure their horses are vaccinated.”“Vector-borne diseases” such as Lyme, West Nile and EEEV are monitored because they are spread by parasites that benefit from the recent trend toward warmer springs and summers.If this trend continues, Lutzi said health officials can expect to see more instances of these potentially serious illnesses.Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria transmitted by tick bites. It is difficult to diagnose because it resembles many other illnesses that produce flu-like symptoms.Lyme disease can persist for years. The most serious complication is heart and organ damage that can ultimately prove fatal.West Nile disease is believed to have arrived in North America 30 or so years ago in mosquitoes that hitched a ride on jet planes from Africa and the Middle East. Most people exposed to the virus exhibit no symptoms but in others the ailment produces long-term debilitation and death.Being an encephalitic pathogen, EEEV inflames brain and nerve tissue with the potential for long-term debilitation in victims who survive.Norfolk council serves as the board of health for both Norfolk and Haldimand due to Norfolk’s larger population.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Britain Is The Home Of Golf The Old Folks Home That Is

With first-time winners taking each of the last seven major titles, you might not think experience counts for much in golf anymore. But as the world’s top players head to Royal Birkdale for this week’s (British) Open, it serves as a reminder that the unique challenges of links-style courses still provide at least one championship showcase for golf’s greybeards.Traditionally speaking, championship golfers do the bulk of their winning in their late 20s and early-to-mid 30s: Since 2000, about 60 percent of major winners were age 32 or younger at the time of their victory. But the big exception seems to be the British Open, whose champs are consistently much older than those of the other majors. Of the five major wins by the 40-and-older set since 2000, only one of them didn’t come at The Open (Vijay Singh’s 2004 PGA Championship win). According to ESPN’s Stats & Information Group, the average age for British Open winners since 2000 was 33.7, while the average age for all other major champs was 30.7.And the results have been even more extreme in recent years, with four 40-somethings winning the Claret Jug this decade,1Henrik Stenson in 2016, Phil Mickelson in 2013, Ernie Els in 2012 and Darren Clarke in 2011. and this doesn’t even count Zach Johnson (who won The Open at age 39 in 2015), nor does it reflect the heroic near-misses from old-timers this century, such as 59-year-old Tom Watson’s playoff loss at Turnberry in 2009 and 53-year-old Greg Norman’s third-place finish in 2008 — the last time Birkdale hosted the event. Since 2011, the average age for The Open winners has been 38.5, nearly 10 years older than the average of the other three majors (28.7), according to ESPN Stats & Information. So why do older players excel at the British? One reason might be in the way experience helps players deal with the ever-changing weather conditions that often beset The Open — and how those same atmospheric effects negate the advantages of long-hitting younger players.To test this theory, I looked at data provided by Stats & Info for the first two rounds of each British Open since 1983. For players who have birthdate information in the database,2Because of incomplete data, about 20 percent of players who played in the British Open are missing age information. I broke them down into the following categories: “Young” (ages 28 or below — the youngest 25 percent of players), “Old” (ages 39 or older — the oldest 25 percent of players) and “Regular” (everyone else). I also recorded whether the average score for a given round was more than three strokes over par, considering such rounds to have “high-scoring” conditions. This is admittedly an imperfect proxy for weather effects, but in the absence of tee times and climate data, it will have to do as a means of flagging rounds where conditions were challenging.When scoring conditions were normal, old and young players shot equally well relative to the field average. (Players who fit neither category shot about a third of a stroke better on average, which makes sense given those players were in the primes of their careers.) But when conditions got bad, the young players shot worse — and the older ones shot better. In high-scoring rounds, young players lost about a third of a stroke per round relative to older players, an even bigger margin than the quarter-stroke they lost relative to prime-aged players.3It’s a safe assumption that the missing ages in this data set only work in the favor of the younger players: Many of the ones missing are amateurs and fringe international qualifiers, who typically put up worse scores; likewise, past Open winners age 60 or younger, who automatically qualify, also tend to perform poorly, but their ages are reflected here. A “high-scoring round” is one in which the field average was more than three strokes over par.Source: ESPN Stats & information group Old (39 and older)1,616-0.11730-0.28-0.17 Open weather can infamously turn on a dime, and it requires shots of a very different shape than the usual ones many younger Americans have spent the vast majority of their careers playing. So at least in part, this is evidence that experience — and not raw power — can help a player better navigate around such challenging conditions.And that shouldn’t be any different this time around, with typical rainy, gusty weather on the forecast for Royal Birkdale. So although this has been a great season for young players on the PGA Tour, don’t be surprised if the sport’s elder statesmen take center stage in England this week.

Selfdriving cars could function as moving brothels academics predict

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. This could lead to congestion and traffic in tourist hotspots, the researchers warned. “Should CAVs replace traditional coach-tours, major urban attractions can anticipate congestion as ten or more CAVs may equal the capacity of one conventional tour bus.  Brothels could move into self-driving cars, British academics predict.A paper by researchers at the University of Surrey and Oxford suggests that “pay-per-hour” hotel rooms are likely to be replaced by autonomous cars when the technology is introduced.”While SCAVs [shared, connected autonomous vehicles] will likely be monitored to deter passengers having sex or using drugs in them, and to prevent violence, such surveillance may be rapidly overcome, disabled or removed. “Moreover, personal CAVs will likely be immune from such surveillance. Such private CAVs may also be put to commercial use, as it is just a small leap to imagine Amsterdam’s Red Light District ‘on the move’,” the paper says. The study titled “Autonomous vehicles and the future of urban tourism”, published in the Annals of Tourism Research, also suggests that the budget hotel and flight industry could suffer if the cars are introduced, as travellers opt to sleep in their cars and travel overnight between cities that they might otherwise have flown between. They could also herald the end of the coach trip, as tourists who might have opted for a coach tour choose the greater freedom and independence that comes with travelling by car without having to worry about driving or finding parking spaces.  “CAV use in urban tourism may, therefore, prove an exception to expectations that CAVs will lead to reduced congestion and better traffic flows.”Self-driving car tours, organised by computer-generated algorithms, could also lead to tourist shops paying for inclusion on an automated route. Plans to introduce self-driving “pods” in the Lake District were announced earlier this year, and autonomous electric vehicles are already carrying passengers at Heathrow’s Terminal 5.  Show more read more

Two of Plutos moons voted to be named Vulcan and Cerberus

first_imgSet phasers to awesome. The polls have closed and the votes have been counted. After weeks of online balloting to help pick names for Pluto’s two smallest moons, the winners are Cerberus and Vulcan. The latter was helped along by none other than William Shatner, who tweeted about the poll and suggested the name. Even if you’re not a Star Trek fan, you have to admit these names are more fun than the placeholder names, P4 and P5.The voting was undertaken by the SETI Institute and by Dr. Mark Showalter, on behalf of the P4/P5 discovery team. The rules for voting clearly state that the team is not bound by the results of voting, but will recommend the names to the International Astronomical Union (ITU). Although, Vulcan won by a pretty huge margin, capturing about 174,000 out of a total of 450,324 votes. Cerberus eked out a second place finish with a touch under 100,000 votes.Shatner suggested the name to pay homage to the Star Trek universe planet Vulcan, which is the home of the Vulcan species. SETI officials were quick to point out that Vulcan was also the Roman god of lava and smoke, which was the rationale for adding it in the first place. Cerberus is the legendary three-headed hound that guards the gates to the underworld in Greek and Roman mythology.The moons, which are the fourth and fifth moons of Pluto, were discovered by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2011 and 2012 respectively. These clumps of rock are 5,000 times fainter than Pluto, and are 2-3 times farther away from the dwarf planet than it’s largest moon, Charon. Both P4 and P5 are roughly 15-20 miles in diameter, which is dinky by moon standards. At least they might get cool names.Now read: Live long and prosper: Redshirts less likely to die on Star Trek than goldshirtslast_img read more

Xenophons appeal to end vicious cycle of doubledipping for politicians

first_imgAs Joe Hockey is expected to be appointed Australia’s ambassador to Washington DC, independent Senator Nick Xenophon has said that he should not claim the parliamentary pension in addition to his salary. “I just want to help Joe Hockey fulfil his dream of ending the age of entitlement by Joe Hockey setting an example for the rest of us,” he said on Sunday. Xenophon’s comment refers to a speech the former treasurer gave in London in 2012 calling for a smaller welfare state. Following his official resignation from parliament last week, Hockey is on track to land a key government post in Washington, reportedly earning a salary of $360,000 per year. As it stands today, under the guidelines established in 2010, he could simultaneously access up to 50 per cent of his parliamentary superannuation, a move that would translate to an additional $90,000 a year. Xenophon urged Hockey to reject the generous top-up to his income if he takes on the ambassador’s role, and warned that in case double-dipping occurred he would call for an overhaul of the current legislation in the Senate. “I will be putting up legislation in the Senate that will say if an ex-politician who’s getting a parliamentary pension is offered a diplomatic post, then they can’t get any of that pension during that time of the diplomatic post,” he told reporters in Adelaide. “This looks a lot like a double-dip by ex-politicians. It is beyond community standards. It is not reasonable,” he added. Earlier this year, as treasurer in the Abbott government, Hockey said that legally accessing both employer and government-paid parental leave schemes was “basically fraud”, although amid the backlash that followed he denied making the statement. An avid supporter of reducing government allowances, Hockey also reiterated in his farewell parliament speech the need to end the “age of entitlement”. This is not the first time Senator Xenophon has publicly brought up the issue of unfair political entitlements. Former SA premier Mike Rann, who was receiving both a parliamentary pension and a salary while serving as a high commissioner in Britain in 2014, had his earnings reduced after Xenophon pushed the federal government to take action. Senator Xenophon told reporters on Sunday he is planning to pay for his travel expenses for his imminent trip to the US to look at the automotive industry. “I can do things on the cheap … I know all the Greyhound bus schedules,” he said.

Un incroyable trésor découvert dans un temple indien

first_imgUn incroyable trésor découvert dans un temple indienUn incroyable trésor, dont la valeur pourrait atteindre plusieurs milliards d’euros, a été découvert dans les sous-sols d’un temple hindou du Sud de l’Inde. La question de l’origine de cette fabuleuse découverte se pose alors. S’agit-il de richesses cachées par une famille royale ou d’offrandes abandonnées dans le temple ? Alors qu’ils réalisaient des fouilles dans les sous-sols d’un temple de l’Etat du Kerala, au sud de l’Inde, des archéologues ont mis au jour des milliers de colliers, de décorations en or, en argent, et de pierres précieuses, lit-on sur le site Internet du temple. Un trésor dont la valeur pourrait être comprise entre 700 millions et 15 milliards d’euros d’après les différents experts qui sont en train de l’évaluer. Ce fabuleux trésor a été découvert dans cinq caches souterraines du temple de Sree Padmanabhaswamy. Un édifice érigé au XVIIIe siècle, situé dans le centre de la ville de Thiruvananthapuram. Dédié au dieu Vishnou, il a été construit par le roi de Travancore. Le trésor découvert pourrait alors être constitué d’offrandes des fidèles. Depuis que l’Inde a obtenu son indépendance en 1947, le temple est géré par une fondation dirigée par les descendants de la famille royale de Travancore. Mais la Cour suprême indienne a récemment ordonné qu’il soit contrôlé par l’Etat.Ce lundi, une sixième chambre secrète, protégée par des murs de fer, doit être ouverte à son tour. Il est possible qu’elle renferme elle aussi d’inestimables richesses. Afin de protéger le précieux trésor, une centaine d’hommes de l’armée et de la police a été mobilisée sur le site. Le temple a également été équipé d’alarmes et de caméras. Mais cette surveillance n’empêchera aucunement les hindous d’entrer dans le temple pour s’y recueillir, promettent les autorités.Richesses cachées ou offrandes ?À lire aussiUne momie égyptienne vieille de 5500 ans renverse nos croyances sur l’embaumementReste aujourd’hui à déterminer qui a abandonné ce faramineux trésor. Selon les hypothèses émises, il pourrait s’agir d’une partie des richesses de la famille royale de Travancore qui régnait sur le territoire avant la colonisation britannique et qui a fait édifier le temple.  Mais il se pourrait également qu’il s’agisse d’offrandes de fidèles accumulées au cours de centaines d’années dans cette ville autrefois très commerçante. Outre cette origine, se pose également la question du destin de cette découverte. Les responsables de la communauté hindoue estiment que ces richesses sont la propriété du temple et doivent le rester. D’autres, comme un ancien juge de la cour suprême et de nombreux intellectuels, réclament qu’elles soient investies pour le bien public.  Le 11 juillet 2011 à 17:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Vancouver man injured in I5 crash

first_imgOne person was injured Friday morning in a three-car crash on Interstate 5.The crash was reported just after 10 a.m. on the southbound exit to Fourth Plain Boulevard.According to a Washington State Patrol release, a 1999 Dodge Dakota driven by Christopher Imre, 43, of Vancouver failed to slow and slammed into a 2010 Audi A4 driven by Sandra Tersteeg, 39, of Vancouver. The Audi was then pushed into the rear of a 1999 Ford Mustang driven by Manuel Ramos Lopez, 24, of Woodland.Imre was the only driver who reported injuries. He was treated at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center and released.The crash caused an estimated $5,000 in damage to the Dakota and Audi, both of which were towed from the scene, and an estimated $500 in damage to the Mustang.The crash was caused by inattention, WSP said.Imre was cited for speeding, according to the release.last_img read more

Early universe may have been dominated by bobbing waves

first_imgOscillon simulations show that inflation may have been immediately followed by an oscillon-dominated phase of the early universe. Image credit: Amin, et al. ©2012 American Physical Society (Phys.org) — Localized waves that bob up and down without dissipating their energy, called “oscillons,” may have dominated the early universe shortly after inflation. A collaboration of physicists from MIT, Yale University, and Stanford University has discovered that copious amounts of oscillons arise in simulations based on several realistic inflationary models and could have caused novel gravitational effects in the early universe, although it is unclear whether the effects could be directly observed today. Play Oscillons are localized, time-periodic, extremely long-lived excitations of scalar fields with non-linear interactions. The animation above is a 2D slice through the center of an oscillon. Video credit: Amin, et al. Gravitational effectsThe physicists calculated that an oscillon-dominated universe would affect the density fluctuations that appeared around that time which later led to the formation of galaxies, stars, and planets. They found that the abundant oscillons would have enhanced the frequency spectrum of the early inhomogeneities, or primordial power spectrum, on very small scales. This enhancement, in turn, could have possibly led to novel gravitational effects at that time. “When gravity is included, oscillons attract each other, possibly forming bound structures and leading to structure formation not too different than what happens in the contemporary universe (except this happens on a very tiny length scale and very early on in the history of the universe),” Amin said. “In addition, oscillons can merge, fragment or scatter off each other in complex ways when they come close to each other. Another (even more speculative) possibility is that some of these objects could combine and collapse to form primordial black holes, which could then quickly evaporate. All of these possibilities need further work, and will keep us busy.”He added that the presence of oscillons would probably not have had any effect on present-day observations, since oscillons existed on scales much smaller than those that contribute to large-scale structure formation“It is unclear whether these primordial oscillons will have an effect today,” Amin said. “We have not fully understood their implications yet, especially when other particles and gravity is included in the simulations.”Amin and his coauthors are not the only scientists investigating the possible existence of oscillons shortly after inflation. Other researchers, including those at Dartmouth College and the University of Sussex, have also found that oscillons can be produced easily in different early universe processes. But they still have many unanswered questions to investigate.“Some of us are working on trying to understand how robust these oscillons are when new particles are included in the simulations, which can bleed energy from the oscillons,” Amin said. “Some questions we are interested in include: (1) Does the presence of oscillons delay the rate at which the inflation transfers its energy to other particles? (2) How do oscillons clump in the presence of gravity? Do they form clusters? Can they collapse to form primordial black holes? (3) We are also interested in studying what happens during collisions of oscillons. Such interactions will be important to understand the ultimate fate of a collection of oscillons produced in the early universe.” Copyright 2012 Phys.org All rights reserved.

The content is provided for information purposes only. According to the simulations, the oscillons in the early universe would have lived long enough for the universe to grow by a factor of 100 or more, under the assumption that the energy transfer to other particles is suppressed. This period could alter our view of what the universe looked like between the end of inflation and the beginning of radiation domination. “In many models of particle production after inflation, the inflaton rapidly transfers its energy to a turbulent sea of intermediary particles, which eventually decay into the particles we know and love,” Amin said. “Our work shows that, even if the energy transfer to other particles is suppressed, the inflaton can fragment rapidly into localized, coherent structures called oscillons. These oscillons are so ubiquitous that they can dominate the energy density of the universe at that time, which is definitely novel! In terms of altering our basic picture of the early universe, the presence of oscillons increases the clumpiness of the universe on small scales at the end of inflation. Their presence might also alter how the energy from the inflaton is eventually transferred to other particles, and how long it takes to do so. However, to make concrete statements about this and its impact on astrophysics in general, we need to study more realistic models including many more types of particles and gravitational interactions between oscillons.”Amin explained that, although these oscillons would have been much too small to see and very short-lived, the sheer number of them would have enabled them to have a significant impact on the early universe.“In the class of models we have considered, the oscillons are smaller than the Hubble horizon at the time of production,” he said. “The Hubble horizon is a measure of the typical distance light can travel while the universe doubles in size, and can be smaller than the size of an atom. Although small compared to human scales, oscillons are large in the following sense. Oscillons can be thought of as a bag of a large number of inflaton particles. This bag of individual particles can be extremely heavy compared to the heaviest known particles. Although exact numbers of oscillons produced depend on the details of the models used, enough of them can be produced to dominate the energy density of the universe at that time. Their lifetime is a tiny fraction of a second. However, even in this tiny fraction of a second, the universe doubles in size many times over! So as far as this doubling timescale of the universe is concerned, they live extremely long and can have a strong impact on the dynamics within the universe at that time. Regarding whether they move in unison, our simulations show that most of the oscillons do not move much once they are formed (as we mentioned before, they are rather heavy), and the distance between them increases as the universe expands. However, if the gravitational force between them is included, they might clump together to form clusters of oscillons.” Citation: Early universe may have been dominated by bobbing waves (2012, July 24) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-07-early-universe-dominated-bobbing.html The physicists have published their paper on the possibility of oscillons existing after inflation in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.As the scientists explain in their paper, oscillons are massive, long-lived excitations of a scalar field that are localized, i.e., they do not dissipate like ripples produced by dropping a pebble in a calm pond. Instead, an oscillon switches between being a hill and a crater, alternately rising above and sinking below the spatially uniform state of the field. In previous experiments, scientists have created oscillons by vertically vibrating a plate with a sufficiently thick layer of granular particles. As long as they’re not disturbed, oscillons will continue to move up and down for hundreds of thousands of oscillations.Oscillon-dominated universeIn the new study, the physicists used simulations to investigate the requirements needed for oscillons to form just after inflation, the period of rapid expansion that occurred from 10-36 to 10-33 seconds after the Big Bang. In a class of inflationary models that include some string models and supergravity-inspired models, the scientists found that inflation is followed by self-resonance that in turn generates large numbers of oscillons. “At the end of inflation, the inflaton (the agent responsible for inflation) is oscillating up and down, in sync throughout the universe,” coauthor Mustafa Amin at MIT told Phys.org, speaking on behalf of his coauthors Richard Easther, Raphael Flauger, and Hal Finkel at Yale University (now at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, the Princeton Institute for Advanced Studies, and Argonne National Laboratory, respectively), and Mark Hertzberg at Stanford University.“However, this synchronous, homogeneous state cannot be maintained for long,” he explained. “It is unstable and quickly fragments into an inhomogeneous, clumpy state. The rapid transfer of energy from the synchronous to the clumpy state is what we call self-resonance. We refer to it as self-resonance because the energy is shuttled from the synchronous, homogeneous state to the clumpy state of the inflation field itself. Interestingly, the mathematics describing this transfer of energy is identical to that describing a child pumping a swing. The child’s pumping plays the role of the homogenous, oscillating inflaton whereas the arc of the swing is related to the energy in the clumpy state.” Journal information: Physical Review Letters Explore further PausePlay% buffered00:0000:00UnmuteMuteDisable captionsEnable captionsSettingsCaptionsDisabledQuality0SpeedNormalCaptionsGo back to previous menuQualityGo back to previous menuSpeedGo back to previous menu0.5×0.75×Normal1.25×1.5×1.75×2×Exit fullscreenEnter fullscreen More information: Mustafa A.

Apple Is Staffing Up In Order to Push iPads to Businesses

first_imgFebruary 4, 2015 This story originally appeared on Business Insider Apple is looking for sales execs to coordinate its enterprise sales push with IBM, according to new company job postings.These managers will oversee joint Apple-IBM sales teams based in Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, and New York. The teams will focus on selling iPads and iPhones to enterprises.Cook pointed out on Apple’s last earnings call that nearly all of the Fortune 500 already use iPads, but don’t roll them out to very many employees. The trick for these new salespeople will be to convince companies that they can use iPads for a lot more things than they use PCs for today.One of the reasons Apple partnered with IBM last July was to take advantage of its deep experience selling to enterprises.The two companies are also working on customizable iOS apps for specific industries. Based on the job listings, Apple appears to be focusing on healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services for now.Apple and IBM released their first 10 joint business apps in December. CEO Tim Cook said on a recent earnings call that it will release 12 more apps by the end of this quarter and that Apple hopes to have 100 enterprise apps by the end of 2015.There are also rumors of a larger “iPad Pro” in the works that could energize business sales.Apple can still succeed if the iPad fails, but Cook needs the IBM partnership to work if he wants to change perceptions that the tablet has hit an insurmountable wall.

The feature establishes a secure, direct connection with the receiving site, eliminating expenses associated with VPN hardware, setup and maintenance incurred by referring physicians. Also, the support of DICOM TLS by the OsiriX software for Apple computers ensures compatibility with eXpedo with SDS, thereby reducing the need for additional investments.“With this feature added, facilities can utilize eXpedo to automatically share medical images and reports using any combination of CD production, cloud sharing, and/or Secure DICOM Share,” continues Samari. “eXpedo with SDS will submit jobs to any CD burner on your network, so your existing investment is protected.”For more information: www.sorna.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more News | Electronic Medical Records (EMR) | August 01, 2019 DrChrono Teams With DeepScribe to Automate Medical Note Taking in EHR DrChrono Inc. and DeepScribe announced a partnership so medical practices using DrChrono EHR can use artificial… read more News | Radiology Business | August 01, 2019 Philips Completes Acquisition of Carestream Health’s HCIS Business … read more Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more Technology | August 28, 2013 Sorna Corp.

UPDATED Mexico reels in response to 71 earthquake

first_imgRelated posts:Magnitude-6.9-quake strikes southern Mexico, northern Guatemala, kills at least 2 At Mexico-US border, pope decries migrant ‘tragedy’ Strong earthquake off El Salvador felt in Costa Rica Costa Rica offers search-and-rescue teams to Mexico after earthquake At least 100 people were killed when a powerful, 7.1-magnitude earthquake rocked Mexico on Tuesday, toppling buildings in the capital and sowing panic on the anniversary of a devastating 1985 quake.The toll from the authorities was preliminary and could rise, as rescue crews and volunteers in Mexico City – home to 20 million people – clawed through the rubble of collapsed buildings looking for survivors and bodies.Four deaths were initially confirmed in Mexico City. The others occurred in nearby regions, mostly in Morelos state just to the south where 42 deaths were recorded.“I’m so worried. I can’t stop crying. It’s the same nightmare as in 1985,” Georgina Sanchez, 52, sobbed to AFP in a plaza in the capital.“We ran outside thinking all was going to collapse around us,” said Lazaro Frutis, a 45-year-old who escaped an office building before it crumpled to the ground. “The worst thing is, we don’t know about our families or anything.” AFP PHOTO / Pedro PardoThe quake – which occurred in the early afternoon, hours after city authorities had conducted an earthquake drill – caused damage in the bustling center of the city, and to areas south and west of the capital.Several buildings were reduced to debris and cars were flattened by falling masonry.Scenes of chaos permeated the city, with traffic jammed to a standstill before blanked-out stop lights, and anxious people running between vehicles as ambulances tried to make headway, sirens squealing.Emergency officials warned people in the streets to avoid smoking because of the risk of igniting gas leaking from ruptured pipes.In several locations, people were seen clambering on buildings that were now piles of stone and tangled metal to seek pull people out. People hurry to free possible victims out of the rubble of a collapsed building after the quake in Mexico. AFP PHOTO / Alfredo Estrella‘Everyone was frantic’The disaster immediately recalled the 1985 quake in which more than 10,000 people died, escalating panic among the population.Jorge Lopez, a 49-year-old Spaniard living in Mexico City, said that he raced to the school in the central Roma district where his children aged six and three were in class. He found the school collapsed but his offspring safe, if terrified.“We arrived at the school and everyone was crying, everyone was frantic, and the kids were holding on to a rope,” he said. “It’s uncontrollable. You can’t do anything against nature.”Witnesses said another school was smashed to rubble in Cuernavaca, a town just south of the capital. The fate of the pupils and teachers was unknown.An office building of approximately five stories in the chic Condesa district of central Mexico City collapsed. Volunteers scrambled among the debris, pulling out three survivors and looking for more.“There are people trapped there!” yelled one woman.Similar efforts were made at other smashed buildings nearby. At one, an emergency worker held up a sign commanding “Silence” so crews could listen for the sounds of any survivors.Patients were evacuated from a hospital in the adjoining Roma district, wheeled out on beds and wheelchairs as staff set up makeshift wards outside. Civil defence personnel and volunteers form a perimeter around the site where a building collapsed. AFP PHOTO / Alfredo EstrellaMexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, said on Twitter he had ordered the evacuation of damaged hospitals “and the transfer of their patients to other medical facilities.”He was to hold an emergency coordination meeting after flying over the disaster zone.At one collapsed building in Roma, dozens of people clawed at the rubble as they waited for the arrival of heavy machinery to move the massive chunks of stone. Officials called out for more volunteers, and for water.A woman standing and watching the efforts with her husband, a doctor, turned to him and said, “Darling, if you want to help, give me your glasses and take care.”Hours after the quake, residents stood around outside, in the streets, fearing aftershocks.Unconfirmed social media posts suggested the city’s international airport had closed because of damage.Mexico’s stock market was shut because of the quake. An injured woman is helped in the aftermath. AFP PHOTO / Pedro PardoInternational responseOfficials in other countries began to react to the disaster, with many offering to help.Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solís, who is in New York with other world leaders for the UN General Assembly, expressed his “solidarity” with the Mexican people.Back home, Costa Rican authorities offered Mexico support in the form of search-and-rescue teams.“With rising casualties & many collapsed buildings, my thoughts are with those impacted by the Mexico earthquake. The UN is ready to support,” tweeted the UN’s emergency relief coordinator, Mark Lowcock.U.S. President Donald Trump, who has forged an antagonistic relationship with Mexico since coming to office, tweeted: “God bless the people of Mexico City. We are with you and will be there for you.”Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, tweeted: “Devastating news from Mexico City. My thoughts are with those affected by today’s earthquake – Canada will be ready to help our friends.”Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray responded by saying “Mexico sincerely thanks the displays of international solidarity that we are receiving.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more
