first_imgItanagar: Tribal villagers had witnessed “thick black smoke” originating from a mountain towards Molo village in Arunachal Pradesh on Monday after an An-32 aircraft of the IAF lost contact with the ground staff on Monday afternoon. “… three persons of Tumbin village stated that on that day and time they saw thick black smoke which was originating from a mountain about 7-8 km towards Molo village,” Chief Minister Pema Khandu said on Thursday.

Three search parties – including one from Shi-Yomi district and one from the Army, were trekking to various possible locations to look for the aircraft. Meanwhile, a joint effort by police, Army and the Indian Air Force (IAF) was in force to search the crashed location in an area of about 2,500 sq km in Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh. Khandu has asked the district administrations of Siang, West Siang, Lower Siang and Shi-Yomi to intensify the search and rescue operation Also Read – India receives its first Rafale fighter jet from France The IAF resumed their search and rescue operations with Mi-17s and ALH helicopters were pressed into service to trace the Russian-origin An-32 transporter along the thickly forested routes between Assam’s Jorhat and Mechuka in Arunachal Pradesh. Khandu said the Deputy Commissioners of Siang and West Siang apprised Khandu about the steps initiated by them to trace the missing aircraft and said they were working in close coordination with each other. “They arranged three teams consisting of 3/4 locals in each team to trace the missing aircraft and the people onboard… All the ranges being searched are in the line of aircraft route,” the Chief Minister said. On Monday, the An-32 took off from Assam’s Jorhat at 12.27 p.m. with 13 people on board for the Mechuka Advanced Landing Ground in Arunachal Pradesh’s Shi-Yomi district bordering China. The aircraft lost contact with the ground staff at 1.30 p.m. On Tuesday, the Indian Navy’s Long Range Maritime Reconnaissance aircraft P8i conducted an aerial survey to locate the partly upgraded An-32 plane. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) satellites CARTOSAT and RISAT are also taking images of the area. Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Eastern Air Command, Air Marshal R.D.

Australian Female Tourist Talks about Her Experience in Morocco

By Natasha JacksonSydney – I recently returned from a 5 week trip to magical Morocco. Before departing and upon my return I had to reassure friends, family and strangers that Morocco is a safe country to visit. For many there is the misconception that Morocco is a dangerous destination.Unfortunately incidents like the recent tragedy in Tunisia only fuels this belief. Of course, in today’s climate you cannot take safety for granted; you need to be respectful and mindful of your surroundings. But this applies to any country that you travel to. This was my second visit but this time I was travelling as a solo female. From the moment I arrived in Casablanca until my departure I felt safe. The people of Morocco are generous, welcoming and very tolerant. They are proud of their country and were more than willing to help me in any way they could. Despite the occasional language barrier (my only language is English) this trip was all I hoped for and more.I thoroughly enjoyed soaking up the incredible energy of Marrakech’s famous Djemaa el Fna; wandering about the square in the early afternoon and into the evening was sensory overload. Here I encountered snake charmers, nappy wearing monkeys, fortune tellers, henna artists, musicians and dancers.The food stalls were full of locals and tourists alike enjoying the open air BBQ. There is so much to see and do in this exotic red city. It comes as no surprise that Trip Advisor voted Marrakech the No 1 spot for most popular travel destination!The small but charming coastal town of Essaouira was a great place to relax after the pace of Marrakech. It’s souk in the middle of town was easy to navigate and filled with great shops and restaurants. The atmosphere here is “chilled out” with a touch of bohemia. Wandering down to the fish market to see the fish merchants with their catch of the day was another authentic experience!But my heart belongs to the Sahara – there is no place on earth like it. It’s solitude and beauty is breathtaking. It truly is a photographers paradise. I very much enjoyed the quintessential camel trek to an overnight bivouac. It was like visiting another world. Whilst my behind found the camel ride (or massage as it is sometimes referred) a little challenging, it was worth every minute!A camel ride is the only way to appreciate the desert. The colors of the dunes at sunset and sunrise are spectacular, sitting alone on top of one of the many peaks was a spiritual experience for me. A great time for reflection and wonder. The night sky has to be seen to be believed, I have never seen so many twinkling stars.I have not mentioned the mountains, palmeries, Kasbahs, food, palaces, artisans, gardens or the art of mint tea. Morocco has something for every budget and every taste. If you are looking for an exhilarating adventure of a lifetime rich in traditions and culture then Morocco is the place for you.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

Morocco to Turn Clocks Back to Standard Time October 28

Rabat – Morocco will turn the clocks back one hour to standard time, GMT, on October 28 at 2 a.m., after the summer’s Daylight Saving Time. Every year, Morocco adopts Daylight Saving Time for the summer and returns to standard time for the winter on the last Sunday in October.When Ramadan falls in the summer, Morocco makes another switch back to standard time during DST. The clock change comes at a time when the EU has decided to stop switching between DST and standard time. The Commission suggested EU member states stop changing the clocks because of health issues that follow the change of time and the difficulties managing schedules in the transportation sector. In Morocco, a number of activists submitted a petition in 2017 for the discontinuation of Daylight Saving Time. However, the request has not been answered. Mohammed Benabdelkader, the minister of civil service, told Moroccan news outlet Le360 that potential decisions on DST would have to wait for the results of an on-going study on the impact of changing time on Moroccans’ health. The minister also specified that the EU decision will not necessarily influence Morocco.  Moroccans expect to turn the clocks forward one hour for Daylight Saving Time (GMT+1) on March 31, 2019. read more

Leaders of China Russia discuss evolving partnership opposition to Syria intervention

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email BEIJING, China – The leaders of Russia and China met Tuesday to foster an evolving partnership that has counterbalanced U.S. influence and shielded Syria from international moves to halt its crackdown on a 15-month uprising.Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in Beijing on his first visit to his country’s vast neighbour since resuming the Russian presidency earlier this month. He later sat down for talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao that are expected to touch on the crisis in Syria as well as on Iran, bilateral trade and energy co-operation, and will join a regional summit later in the week.Russia and China have repeatedly defied calls by the international community to confront Syria’s regime over spiraling violence, saying they will not back steps that could lead to foreign intervention. Russia has long been a close ally of President Bashar Assad’s regime, while Beijing opposes setting precedents that could potentially be applied to its troubled western regions of Tibet and Xinjiang.China and Russia vetoed two U.N. Security Council resolutions which raised the threat of possible sanctions against Syria and have ruled out any Libya-style military action to protect civilians in Syria. The two also voted against a resolution Friday that condemned last month’s massacre of more than 100 civilians in the cluster of villages known as Houla and called for an independent investigation.The U.S. has pushed Russia to join international efforts for a political transition in Syria that would see Assad driven from power.Putin, meanwhile, has sought to use Russia’s burgeoning ties with Beijing as a counterweight to U.S. global predominance, and the sides have found common cause in rejecting Western calls for more open politics and respect for civil liberties.Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin told reporters Tuesday that China and Russia both “oppose external intervention in the Syrian situation and oppose regime change by force.”Both countries also oppose further sanctions against Iran over its suspected drive to develop nuclear weapons.On Wednesday and Thursday, the Putin and Hu will be among leaders attending the annual summit of the six-member Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a grouping of Russia, China and four Central Asian states seeking to boost regional integration and curb Western influence. The countries are also preparing for the U.S. departure from Afghanistan.Liu said the summit leaders will issue a declaration on guidelines for cracking down on terrorism and building a region of “lasting peace and common prosperity.” He did not give details.Ties between the former Cold War rivals have grown steadily warmer over the course of Putin’s decade-long dominance of Russian political life. Along with close co-ordination in international affairs, they’ve sought to boost economic ties, particularly in the energy sector, setting a target of raising bilateral trade to $100 billion by 2015 from $83.5 billion last year.Despite that, disputes and mistrust linger. Moscow is unhappy with China’s copying of Russian fighter jets and other military hardware and the sides have wrangled for years about the price of gas to be delivered by two Siberian pipelines. Russia prefers to link gas prices to oil prices, as it does in Europe, while China wants a lower price. If Russia’s OAO Gazprom and China National Petroleum Corp. can reach a deal, deliveries are to start by 2015.Putin’s visit follows his attendance Monday at an EU summit in St. Petersburg at which he defended his country’s human rights record, saying Russia has no political prisoners and dismissing criticism of a draconian bill that hikes fines for unsanctioned street rallies.His visit to China is the first since his return to the presidency in May after stepping down in 2008 due to term limits.

Ohio State womens basketball closes out home schedule with 10082 upset over

Redshirt-senior guard Amy Scullion (4th from left) poses for a photo with her family and coach Kevin McGuff during the Senior Night ceremony prior to a game against Iowa on Feb. 21 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 100-82. Credit: Ryan Cooper / Lantern photographerCoach Kevin McGuff knows that for the Ohio State women’s basketball team to be successful this postseason, the Buckeyes need to be playing their best basketball in March.And if Saturday night’s 100-82 drubbing of the No. 13 Iowa Hawkeyes is any indication, the Buckeyes are well on their way to that goal.“It is important to be playing our best basketball this time of year,” McGuff said in a postgame press conference. “And I certainly think that we have played two of our best games in the past week.”The Buckeyes took down Purdue, 92-60, on Tuesday and followed it up with an upset against Iowa in front of a home crowd for the final time this season.Facing an Iowa defense that was seemingly focused on shutting down freshman sensation Kelsey Mitchell, the Buckeyes had three players with double-doubles and found offensive contributions to complement Mitchell.And it all started with junior guard Ameryst Alston.“Ameryst was spectacular tonight,” McGuff said. “She did everything right. She was a superstar.”Alston led the Buckeyes with 29 points and a career-high 11 assists. She scored 20 of her points in the second half where the Buckeyes used defensive changes to turn a 48-45 halftime deficit into a big win.“We beat an excellent team today,” McGuff said. “Iowa is a really good basketball team and they are ranked for a reason. I am really proud of our players.”Having two stars like Mitchell and Alston playing side-by-side creates matchup problems for opponents, but Alston said Mitchell is the one who leads the way.“She is doing everything that everyone expected her to do,” Alston said. “We definitely look to her as one of our leaders on and off the floor. She is so much fun to play with.”Like Alston, Mitchell holds playing with her older counterpart in high regards.“It is amazing,” Mitchell said. “I appreciate her and love her on and off the court.”Alston and Mitchell have been key in building an offensive powerhouse in Columbus that has averaged 96 points over the past two games.“It’s a lot of fun when everybody is contributing,” Alston said. “They can take us (Alston and Mitchell) away, but they can’t take everybody away, which makes us very hard to guard.”The Buckeyes have just two games left in their regular season schedule, and are set to hit the road to face Penn State and then travel to Nebraska.As the season winds down, Alston said sticking together will be key as the Buckeyes try to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time in three years.“The chemistry is definitely there,” Alston said. “We have great chemistry and everybody has the same goal.”The Buckeyes are set to take on the Nittany Lions Thursday in State College, Pa. Tip off is scheduled for 7 p.m. read more

Paddy Ashdown admits he was a bad Victorian father and not very

He said the problem was particularly rife within politicians’ children. “[They] have terrible stories; far too many of them really suffer as a result,” he said.“I think my family could have suffered, that they didn’t is wholly down to the fact that my wife made sure that they didn’t. She carried that burden.”He blamed his “goal-driven” attitude while he was trying to win his Yeovil seat, which he eventually gained in 1983, and admitted he was only concentrating on what he was trying to achieve. “Looking back on my life I would say that I am very goal driven and the result is that whilst I’m fiercely concentrating on what I’m trying to achieve I am not very sensitive to those around me, especially the closest around me and the impact of what I’m doing has on them,” he said.“In the days when I was trying to win my seat, [I was] probably too insensitive to be able to understand what I should have been doing. I look back on that with regret.”He previously added that he “learnt several things” about fatherhood “much too late”. Paddy Ashdown had admitted he was a bad “Victorian” father and said his family would have suffered if his wife hadn’t carried the burden while he tried to win his seat.The former Liberal Democrat party leader, 75, revealed he was “not very sensitive” to his family’s needs and said he regularly tried to impose his will on his two children, Simon and Katharine.Speaking at the Henley Literary Festival, he said his family would have suffered had his wife not stepped in, adding that he regretted how he acted, including not giving his children enough space to grow. “I think I was not a very good father, I think I was a bit of a Victorian father, I tried to impose my will on my kids,” he said. “They soon told me I couldn’t.” [I was] probably too insensitive to be able to understand what I should have been doing. I look back on that with regretLord Ashdown Lord Ashdown previously admitted his wife, Jane, knew about a liaison he had with his former secretary Tricia Howard in 1985.The affair was reported in the run-up to the 1992 election and his family supported him through the scandal.He later wrote in his memoir: “If it hadn’t been for her [Jane’s] calm centre I would have got into all sorts of trouble.”last_img read more

SFR et Free innovations nouvelles box et services de jeux sur télévision

first_imgSFR et Free : innovations, nouvelles box et services de jeux sur télévisionFrance – Les fournisseurs d’accès Internet SFR et Free ont prévu de lancer leurs nouvelles box d’ici Noël.  Lors de la sortie de la 5e version du boîtier de Free, en avril 2006, le fournisseur d’accès avait réussi à rafler entre 22 et 26% de parts de marché en proposant des innovations technologiques inédites : la TNT HD et l’enregistrement sur disque dur notamment. La 6e version de la Freebox réserve, elle, une “innovation majeure”, a affirmé Maxime Lombardini, le directeur général de Free. La future Freebox pourrait ainsi se doter d’un processeur plus puissant et d’un module 3G (femtocell) permettant d’améliorer la couverture du téléphone mobile à domicile. Cette 6e version pourrait également proposer une offre de jeux en ligne et permettre la navigation Internet directement depuis le poste de télévision, voire disposer d’un lecteur DVD BluRay.SFR, de son côté, prépare aussi une nouvelle box. Le 2e opérateur français dispose déjà d’un réseau de téléphonie mobile et devrait en profiter pour proposer des services avec une offre basique et premium quadrupleplay. L’objectif est bien sûr d’augmenter le revenu mensuel par abonné. Par ailleurs, l’opérateur sort le Game On Demand (GoD), qui propose aux abonnés Neufbox d’accéder sans téléchargement à des jeux directement sur leur télévision. Les consoles ou autres CD/DVD deviennent inutiles, puisque les données sont stockées sur un serveur avant d’être envoyées en temps réel sur la Neufbox et le décodeur TV des abonnés. Pour bénéficier du service, SFR indique qu’il suffit d’être en zone dégroupée, de posséder le décodeur Neufbox TV et une manette de jeux. Le service de jeux à la demande de SFR coûte de 1,99€ à 2,99€ par jeu ou 4,99€/mois pour 15 jeux en illimité. Dernière option, le Pass Full Games à 9,99€/mois pour l’ensemble du catalogue.Le 20 octobre 2010 à 13:32 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Daimler Geely form 5050 joint venture to operate Smart brand

first_img Tags 1 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle More From Roadshow 10 Photos Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Smart Forease+ concept shows some modesty 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks Smart Comment Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2020 Volvo XC90 first drive: An improvement worth subscribing to 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV Tags 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 52 Photos 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado.

While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama.center_img 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. Smart,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker.

Smart Smart is getting new ownership in a new deal between current parent Daimler and China’s Geely Holding. The two companies announced Thursday they are forming a joint venture to run Smart, in which each holds a 50 percent stake. Daimler has owned Smart entirely since 1998.The new Smart will launch a new all-electric model that will be built at a new factory in China from 2022. Mercedes-Benz Design will handle styling for the future Smart models, while Geely will handle engineering and production in China. In addition, Smart wants to expand beyond today’s micro cars, with plans for the model range to be “extended into the fast-growing B-segment.”From now through the launch of the new EV, however, Smart will continue to manufacture and sell its existing models at its factories in Slovenia, where the EQ Forfour is built, and France, where Smart manufactures the EQ Fortwo. Smart currently only sells the EQ Fortwo electric models in the US. After production of the Fortwo ends, Mercedes will repurpose the plant in Hambach, France, to build a new compact all-electric model from its EQ family, though details on that model were not revealed.Though Daimler does not break out Smart’s financials, reports suggest the brand had been struggling. In the US, the brand sold just 1,276 cars in all of 2018 — down 58.5 percent compared to 2017. The news comes on the heels of reports that Daimler was considering killing Smart, but Geely’s intervention assures the brand will survive. 71 Photos Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 49 Photos More From Roadshow 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado Comments 81 Photos 69 Photos Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot.

Audi A3 Cabriolet shuffles off this mortal coil after 2019 report says

first_img 24 Photos Post a comment Audi A3 more fun without the top (pictures) 2:32 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Cabriolet: How sweet it is Tags 0 More about 2019 Audi Q3 2.0 TFSI S line Prestige quattro 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet first drive: The uber-roadster More From Roadshow Enlarge ImageGood night, sweet prince. Audi Seasonal depression doesn’t usually work this way, but with the news that Audi is removing one of its few convertibles from the lineup, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little weepy in the middle of summer.Audi will discontinue its A3 Cabriolet after the 2019 model year, Car and Driver reports. It’s not bringing the executioner’s ax down on every A3 variant, just the drop-top, so A3 sedan fans don’t have anything to worry about for the 2020 model year.Thankfully, you can still scoop up one of the 2019 models while they’re at dealers. Each of the A3 Cabriolet’s three trims can be had with one of two powertrains. The base 2.0-liter I4 puts out 184 horsepower and 222 pound-feet of torque, and it comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The more powerful variant boosts output to 228 hp and 258 pound-feet, it loses a gear in its dual-clutch and adds all-wheel drive. News • 2019 Audi Q3 arrives in New York with $35,695 price tag 2019 BMW M850i Convertible review: A grand tourer you’ll just want to drive Audi Now playing: Watch this: The less powerful version starts at $38,900 before destination, while the beefier engine sends the window sticker up to $41,700. The most expensive A3 Cabriolet starts at $49,900.If the A3 Cabriolet isn’t your speed, Audi still offers several other convertibles, too. You can slide into something a little sportier by way of the TT Roadster — while it lasts. The larger A5 Cabriolet has a larger take rate than the A3 did, so it should kick around for some time to come. If you really want to get spendy, there’s always the R8 Spyder supercar, too, and it’s just a little more fun than the others. Just a little.

First flashes of light observed from individual graphene nanoribbons

Chong et al. “Bright Electroluminescence from Single Graphene Nanoribbon Junctions.” Nano Letters. DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.7b03797 Explore further The researchers, led by Deborah Prezzi at the CNR-Nanoscience Institute in Modena, Italy, and Guillaume Schull at the University of Strasbourg in France, have published a paper on their observations of the first electroluminescence from individual graphene nanoribbons in a recent issue of Nano Letters.”Generally, molecular-scale devices are interesting fundamental systems, but are rather unstable and produce limited amount of signal,” Schull told Phys.org. “In our article, we prove that individual graphene nanoribbons may be used as intense, stable and controllable light sources. These are decisive steps towards real-world optoelectronic applications with nanoscale organic systems.”Although graphene’s excellent electronic properties have been investigated extensively, much less is known about its optical properties. One of the drawbacks of using graphene as a light-emitting device is that graphene sheets do not have an optical band gap. However, recent studies have shown that, when cut into thin ribbons just a few atoms wide, graphene obtains a sizable optical band gap, opening up the possibility of light emission.Experimentally, there have been only a few demonstrations of light emission from graphene nanoribbons, and these have been limited to ensembles of nanoribbons and revealed only weak light emission. So the results of the new study, which show a much brighter light emitted by individual graphene nanoribbons compared to ensembles, hint at the exciting untapped potential of graphene’s optical properties. As the researchers explain in the new study, they used a novel configuration method in which an individual graphene nanoribbon bridges two metallic electrodes, for the first time forming an electronic circuit. Using a microscope tip, the researchers partially lifted the nanoribbon so that it lay partly on the substrate and partly suspended. This configuration reduces the coupling between the nanoribbon and the electrodes that would otherwise quench the light emission. Tests showed that the individual graphene nanoribbons exhibit an intense optical emission of up to 10 million photons per second, which is 100 times more intense than the emission measured for previous single-molecular optoelectronic devices, and comparable to that measured for bright light-emitting devices made of carbon nanotubes.In addition, the researchers found that the energy shift of the main peak changes as a function of the voltage, which provides a way to tune the color of the light. These observations also offer insight into the underlying mechanisms of the light emission from individual graphene nanoribbons, which the researchers plan to further investigate in the future.”We likely will explore the influence of the width of the graphene nanoribbons on the color of the emitted light, as the width is expected to control the size of the gap,” Schull said. “The impact of defects should also be explored. Eventually, one should propose methods to integrate our graphene nanoribbons devices in larger circuitry.” A graphene nanoribbon is partially suspended by a microscope tip, resulting in bright light emission. Credit: Chong et al. ©2017 American Chemical Societycenter_img Chemists synthesize narrow ribbons of graphene using only light and heat For the first time, researchers have experimentally observed light emission from individual graphene nanoribbons. They demonstrated that 7-atom-wide nanoribbons emit light at a high intensity that is comparable to bright light-emitting devices made from carbon nanotubes, and that the color can be tuned by adjusting the voltage. The findings may one day lead to the development of bright graphene-based light sources.

Paris rainbow crosswalk vandalized for the second time in a few days

first_imgVandals added the words ‘dictature LGBT’ (LGBT dictatorship) on the blacktop in rue des Archives, in the neighborhood of Marais.The message in French reads ‘LGBT dictatorship’ | Photo: @theandrewgrey TwitterThe rainbow crosswalkWith Pride parade around the corner, the city is experiencing anti-LGBTI discrimination. Vandals, in fact, already defaced the same crosswalk on 25 June. Inaugurated on 14 June, the rainbow was painted over in white and the words ‘LGBT hors de France’ (LGBT [get] out of France) added nearby.Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo and other local and national authorities expressed their outrage at the incident. Particularly, Hidalgo and openly gay First Deputy Mayor of Paris Bruno Julliard took immediate action to repaint the rainbow crosswalk.People also gathered spontaneously to help restore the crosswalk to its former colorful glory. But that only lasted a few days.A message to the mayorThe message added last night is also a direct attack to the mayor. Vandals wrote ‘Hidalgo dégage’, which translates to ‘Hidalgo get out’.One Facebook user posted two pictures of the crosswalk bearing the message to the mayor.‘It has started again. The LGBTIphobes have returned,’ she wrote.‘This act of homophobia won’t go unpunished’Hidalgo also took to Twitter to support the LGBTI community. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Paris rainbow pedestrian crossing vandalized ahead of Pride MarchJean-Claude Van Damme compares people in same-sex relationships to dogsVandals pooed on Cornwall Pride’s rainbow benches to write anti-LGBTI slurRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/paris-rainbow-crosswalk-vandalized-for-the-second-time-in-a-few-days/ The rainbow crosswalk celebrating Pride month in Paris has been vandalized again last night (28 June).

Upcoming changes in the Meaningful Use federal electronic health record (EHR) incentive program will require physicians to order and receive imaging results electronically, putting pressure on the $10-billion-a-year imaging industry to offer their services through an EHR, as pharmacies and labs have done in recent years. Practice Fusion’s API offers imaging centers the first single-interface solution capable of serving all their clients.Imaging centers that connect with the API establish a single connection available to any provider who requests integration. This simple, cost-effective solution also gives hospital-based and independent imaging centers exposure to tens of thousands of referring providers looking for a digital imaging connection to fulfill Meaningful Use. Connection is free to providers, and Practice Fusion’s implementation teams can rapidly integrate providers in a matter of days or weeks.Key Facts:There are 7,000 licensed medical imaging centers in the United States, providing X-ray, ultrasound, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), PET/CT (positron emission tomography/computed tomography), mammography and other diagnostic imaging servicesImaging centers have few digital connections with providers compared to pharmacies and labs, who were included in Meaningful Use from the start of the programStage 2 of Meaningful Use requires that physicians receive imaging results within an EHR and order 30 percent of their radiology reports electronicallyEighty-five percent of medical professionals on Practice Fusion regularly order imaging studies, with a typical doctor ordering 1-2 every day and 25 percent ordering more than 10 studies a weekPractice Fusion’s existing lab API has enabled nearly 250 clinical labs to connect to tens of thousands of medical professionals, and the Practice Fusion platform now processes nearly one million lab orders every month and 100,000 prescriptions every dayFor more information: www.practicefusion.com/imaging FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PACS | May 22, 2019 Brazil’s Santa Casa Hospital System Chooses Carestream for Unified Diagnostic Workflow Santa Casa de Misericordia has selected Carestream to replace its legacy diagnostic workflow technology across all… read more News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more Technology | Artificial Intelligence | May 13, 2019 FDA Approves Zebra Medical Vision’s HealthPNX AI Chest X-ray Triage Product Zebra Medical Vision has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for HealthPNX, an artificial… read more News | Remote Viewing Systems | May 01, 2019 University of Toronto Partners With IMS for Emergency Radiology Simulation International Medical Solutions (IMS) and the University of Toronto Department of Medical Imaging have signed a… read morelast_img read more
