Deepika Padukone: Took up 83 as I have seen my mother support my father

first_imgDeepika Padukone: Took up 83 as I have seen my mother support my fatherDeepika Padukone opens up on her roles in her two big upcoming films Chhapaak and 83. Deepika is playing the role of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in Chhapaak and Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Bhatia in 83.advertisement India Today Web Desk New DelhiJune 28, 2019UPDATED: June 28, 2019 18:06 IST Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Kabir Khan.Deepika Padukone upcoming film Chhapaak is very close to her heart. The actress, in fact, turned into a producer for the film. Chhapaak, which is directed by Meghna Gulzar, is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.Apart from Chhapaak, Deepika will star in 83. The actress will play the role of Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Bhatia in the film. Deepika’s husband Ranveer Singh is playing the role of Kapil Dev in the film.The Love Aaj Kal actress can connect to her role in 83 as she herself comes from a sports background. Like Kapil Dev, Deepika’s father, Prakash Padukone, former Indian badminton player, is also one of the renowned faces of the sports fraternity.In a recent interview with Asian Age, Deepika opened on why she chose to portray Romi Bhatia’s character on the big screen. “I play the role of Romi Dev, wife of Kapil Dev in the movie and she was instrumental in Kapil Dev’s success, especially when he was the captain. She was part of the support system and I feel connected to that. I always feel that in an athlete’s life the wife and family sacrifice a lot of their own dreams to support the vision of the athlete, the goals that they set and they end up sacrificing their own career. I have seen it in my own family. My mother had been supportive to my father in his career. I think to see the human side, to see what an important role family play in success of athlete I took up this role,” she said.advertisementThe film 83 essays Kapil’s captaincy in leading the Indian cricket team to defeat the West Indies in the World Cup final in 1983. The film is directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Reliance Entertainment.Talking to the daily, Deepika also opened up on her role in Chhapaak. She said, “I have chosen this film because I found the narrative interesting. I found the story compelling. The story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal required to be told. There was a connection between her grit and determination and human spirit. I have chosen it in the same way as I would have chosen any other film.”Deepika got deeply engrossed in her character Malti in Chhapaak. In an earlier interview with Mumbai Mirror, Meghna revealed all that went for Deepika to prepare for the role of Malti in the film. She said, “There is Malti, and then there is Deepika who became Malti. Malti’s presence on screen reflects the expression in Deepika’s eyes and on her face which comes through the prosthetics. For me, Malti is Deepika and Deepika is Malti.”It took months for Meghna to decide on Deepika’s look in the film, she was working on it since September. “I didn’t want people to watch this film with their eyes shut, the idea was not to create Laxmi’s face on Deepika but something that would be Deepika’s face had it been scarred the way Laxmi’s was.”Also Read | Deepika Padukone on playing Ranveer Singh’s wife in 83: This isn’t coming from a personal equationALSO READ | Will Deepika Padukone play Ranveer Singh’s wife in 83?ALSO READ | Kapil Dev on Ranveer Singh’s 83: India was not ready to make sports films 20 years agoALSO READ | 83: Ranveer Singh to live with Kapil Dev in Delhi for 10 daysALSO WATCH | Ranveer Singh makes Delhi dance to Gully Boy at India Today Conclave 2019Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Your kids are more than son daughter Study

first_imgReminding your kid that he or she has various roles to play in life such as son, daughter, friend, reader or helper can lead to better problem-solving and more flexible thinking in them. Researchers in the US have found that reminding children of their many identities also showed more flexible thinking in them about race and other social groupings – a behaviour that could be valuable in an increasingly diverse society. “This is some of the first research on reminding kids about their multi-faceted selves,” said the study lead author. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainChildren who were reminded of their multiple roles also showed more flexible thinking about social groupings, said the study published recently. According to a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, it’s great that such research has come out to remind kids about their multi-faceted selves apart from just being the pampered son or daughter of a family. “It is the duty of the parents that they should make their kids understand the various relationships they share with the other people in their life. That not only makes them a responsible individual but also helps them to boost their problem-solving skills,” the psychologist said. It also helps them expand their life and thought the process that will help them to form a simple, non-judgmental mindset. “This practice of introducing kids to their various roles also broadens their horizon. They try to look at things in a new perspective, which isn’t fixed by the society,” the psychologist further added.last_img read more

Good governance

first_imgThere is no underestimating the vitality of effective leadership in taking developments to desirable heights. Good leadership especially stands out in the areas such as education, science, politics, governance, bureaucracy, business, etc. and it is valued particularly in these fields as milestones achieved here decide the course of matters pertaining to numerous other things relevant to the common man. And, conversely, any deficit of leadership in areas such as these will have a telling impact on various aspects of common lives. Economic excellence is generally rated very high and is a widely accepted parameter for development and progress. India’s rank on the global indexes of ease of doing business and economic freedom have significantly improved in recent times but the reason ground reality does not yet reflect its benefits is that the social aspect of development and intended advancements do not adequately consider the social pertinence of decisions and developments. Prioritising economic gains over social upgrading can improve ranks on global indices but changes on the ground are more enduring and therefore need to be given greatest importance. There are several ways of reaching out to the grassroots, the determinants of a thriving society; politics is one way but competing political outfits are bound to be driven by interest over everything else. Another means that reaches out to various areas at all possible levels is the bureaucracy. Functioning at the behest of the government, the aim of public service is general welfare. There is a need to combine bureaucracy and governmental intervention for the benefits to trickle down to those at the lowest and the furthest in the system. It is vital that the institutions of the government at all levels, and especially the basic, ground-level ones be allowed to exercise autonomy for optimum results. It was in 2014 when PM Modi, before he rose to power at the Central government, insisted on the notion of ‘maximum governance, minimum government’. This novelty led to the rise of numerous start-ups, aspiring entrepreneurs, business students, traders, venture capitalists, etc. and entrepreneurship was suddenly in vogue like never before, to the extent that Modi was even compared to 40th US President, Ronald Reagan. ‘Maximum governance, minimum government’ is also essentially about limiting the interventionist power of the government in financial developments, social spaces, and cultures. For this to happen, the most obvious method is to empower people in a manner that it also helps in delivering good governance. With respect to bureaucracy, the much-needed leadership traits like empathy, empowerment, enablement, and collaboration can not only be found but must also be encouraged as well-meaning officers play a proactive role in taking societies towards the heights that nation drams of achieving. In recognition of this notion, 16 district magistrates were honoured with The Indian Express Excellence in Governance Awards for their pioneering work across different categories, some of which are projects like a cluster of solar panels installed on a hillock as an alternate energy source and a neo-natal unit in the heart of Maoist territory and an anti-corruption drive along the international border. This acknowledgement is made to celebrate the finest work done by the women and men at the forefront of governance and bringing change across the country.last_img read more

Senior UN official in Afghanistan condemns killing of civilian family in bomb

“The use of indiscriminate, victim-activated bombs in civilian populated areas is an outrage,” said the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and head of UNAMA, Nicholas Haysom. “The use of indiscriminate weapons must stop immediately.”The family group was composed of a husband and wife, as well as two sons and a daughter aged between 4 and 12 years-old.Next month, UNAMA will next month release its 2014 annual report on the Protection of Civilians, including detailed reporting on civilian casualties. Improvised explosive devices were the second largest cause of civilian casualties in Afghanistan during 2014, with numbers up from 2013.Mr. Haysom stressed that international humanitarian law explicitly prohibits the use of weapons whose effects may not be limited and attacks which are not directed at a specific military objective.UNAMA extends its condolences to the families of all of those killed in the explosion. read more

Very high copper grades at Kakula development

first_imgPicture shows delivery of a new jumbo drill rig to be used to expedite underground development work at Ivanhoe Mines’ Kakula deposit in the DRC. Initial mine development is planned to begin at the deposit in a flat, near-surface zone along the deposit’s axis that is between 7.1 and 11.7 m thick, at a 3% cutoff, with Cu grades of between 8.11% and 10.35%.In February, the company reported an independently verified, updated Mineral Resource estimate for the ultra-high-grade Kakula discovery on the Kamoa-Kakula copper project, near the mining centre of Kolwezi.The tier-one Kamoa-Kakula project is a joint venture between Ivanhoe Mines, Zijin Mining and the government of the DRC.The updated Kakula Mineral Resource estimate, prepared under the direction of Amec Foster Wheeler, covers a mineralized strike length of 13.3 km. For the first time, the updated estimate incorporates Mineral Resources contained in the Kakula West discovery area and the saddle area between the main Kakula discovery area and Kakula West.The new estimate boosts the total tonnage of Kakula’s Indicated Mineral Resources by 50%, at a 3% Cu cutoff, compared to the previous Kakula resource estimate issued in May 2017 that covered a strike length of 7.7 km.Kakula’s new Indicated Mineral Resources at a 3% cutoff grade have increased by 58 Mt and currently total 174 Mt at a grade of 5.62% Cu. This compares to the May 2017 estimate of 116 Mt at 6.09% Cu, at the same cutoff grade. Estimated Inferred Mineral Resources now total an additional 9 Mt at a grade of 3.66% Cu, at a 3% cutoff.At a 1% Cu cutoff, Kakula’s Indicated Mineral Resources have increased by 58%, to now total 585 Mt at 2.92% Cu.The Kakula high-grade mineralized trend remains open in multiple directions. Robert Friedland, Executive Chairman, said Ivanhoe expects that ongoing in-fill and step-out drilling will yield significant expansions and further upgrades to the current resources.“Kakula is the most remarkable mineral discovery we have seen during our 35-plus years in the exploration industry. The new, independently-verified resource estimate now places Kamoa-Kakula ahead of Indonesia’s renowned Grasberg deposit as the world’s fourth-largest copper discovery on the planet in terms of contained copper. And it still is growing.“The exceptionally high copper grades, thicknesses and continuity of the mineralization at Kakula distinguish this discovery from anything else in the Central African Copperbelt,” Friedland added.“Based on the findings of the independent preliminary economic assessment completed in November of last year, the resources we’ve discovered should allow us to build a world-scale, highly-mechanized, underground copper mine with an initial capital cost expected to be far lower than other operations of this size.“With this initial Mineral Resource estimate at Kakula West, we can begin to evaluate technical and infrastructure options to expeditiously develop the zones of thick, high-grade, bottom-loaded chalcocite in this latest discovery area.”Friedland said that a development scenario using a mining rate of 6 Mt/y and a Cu cutoff grade of 3% indicates that Kakula already has enough Indicated Mineral Resources to mine at an average grade of between 5.5% and 6% copper for approximately 30 years.“If we lower the copper cut-off grade to 1%, which is higher than the mining grades at most of the world’s major copper mines, we could be mining almost 3% copper at Kakula for approximately 100 years,” Friedland said.“Importantly, the western trend of Kakula’s high-grade mineralized core appears to be open to the southwest, suggesting that potential extensions of the Kakula West Discovery could remain within the Kamoa-Kakula mining licence for a considerable distance. The ongoing gravity and geophysical seismic surveys will provide our geological team with additional data to better assess the direction and extent of Kakula’s high-grade mineralized zone.“The unparalleled strength and continuity of the Kakula mineralized trend also bodes well for the potential for exploration success on Ivanhoe’s 100%-owned Western Foreland licences, to the west of Kamoa-Kakula. Given the accumulation of in-depth, proprietary geological insights gained by Ivanhoe’s geological team into the features controlling the high-grade copper mineralization during almost two decades of exploring in the region, we are highly confident of further exploration successes in 2018 and beyond.”The Kakula Discovery is approximately 10 km southwest of Kamoa’s initial Kansoko mine development. Ivanhoe and Zijin have been conducting an aggressive drilling program totalling more than 181,500 m at Kakula since April 2016. The program is expected to continue through 2018.last_img read more

Hero of Hindmarsh

first_imgIt was Wednesday morning when the ALP bean-counters made their call. With a 655 vote lead in the Hindmarsh count, they’d worked out Steve Georganas couldn’t be beaten, and despite Liberal incumbent Matt Williams’ reticence to concede, the game was up. People don’t want any meddling with Medicare and this is an issue I’ll be very vocal on.Three years after losing the western Adelaide seat to Williams in an eight per cent swing, as the Rudd government plummeted to defeat (with Labor recording its lowest primary vote since 1931), Georganas, one of the most respected and well-liked lower house MPs of his generation, is heading back to Canberra.As the Twittersphere spread the news like wildfire and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten headed to South Australia to appear with him at a press briefing, one couldn’t help but feel that his victory meant something more than most; a coming home.With an election that was marked by Australians expressing a distinct pessimism with the major parties, Georganas represents perhaps any major party’s best face; someone who’s track-record speaks of not just passion for his party’s values, but also modesty, graciousness and humility.His return to the House of Representatives will be welcomed beyond Labor’s closed-ranks, and rightly so.Born in Mile End in 1959, within the Hindmarsh electorate, Georganas contested the seat of Hindmarsh first at the 1998 and 2001 elections, before winning it by just 108 votes in 2004. In 2007 he retained it, picking up a five per cent two-party swing. Three years later he achieved a six per cent margin over the Liberals – a margin of some 5,000 votes. For Australia’s most marginal seat it was probably as emphatic a victory as you’re ever likely to get.For Georganas, the Labor movement is in his blood and his Greek Australian identity was a key factor in his early political education.Witnessing his father’s experience as an employee of General Motors Holden, and then as a worker on the railways, it was Labor’s views, and particularly the Whitlam government’s actions on social justice, that made an indelible impression on the young Georganas.He’s often spoken about where he gets his motivation.“Both my parents were working-class, blue collar workers. They came out here with very few English skills, and worked in the lowest paid jobs and the hardest industries,” he told me in the run up to the 2013 election. “The Labor movement ensured that my parents had a fair go and were able to make a success of their lives here. I want to be able to offer that to other people.”In the ongoing debate around the ALP’s position on immigration policy and asylum seekers, Georganas has been unwavering in his view that Labor must take a more humane, progressive approach.Speaking just an hour after the declaration this week, Georganas told me he felt “very privileged” to have been elected for his fourth stint in the House of Representatives and “to participate in our democracy”. So often words are cheap in political discourse and the ‘media-bites’ that are part and parcel of a politician’s PR, but there’s an authenticity to Georganas’ tone when he makes such statements that is undeniable.Asked what has changed since he first went to Capital Hill as an MP, he says the fundamentals remain, despite the revolution of social media ensuring a politician’s messages are mediated and conveyed in a way that was unimaginable 20 years ago.In Australia’s 45th parliament he’ll focus on what he’s always focused on: the well-being, prosperity and living-standards of his electorate.“The Australian public never gets it wrong,” he says. “We may whinge and carry on about the make-up of the parliament, but it’s my duty now as the member for Hindmarsh to do all that I can to be a good representative for Hindmarsh, and be worthy of their vote.”As he’s done in the past, he’ll be arguing the case for interventions on jobs, health, pensions and aged care, all of which he says have been hard hit by the Coalition’s policies.“We’ve had a very good state government who have taken it up to the federal government. I’ll now be an extra voice to make sure the Coalition doesn’t renege on its promises, and to do all we can to secure Arrium steelworks and to put things in place to make sure the GMH Holden shutdown has as minimal an effect as possible.”Arguably Georganas’ most passionate agenda item is Medicare. He’s adamant that his party’s ‘Mediscare’ campaign in the run-up to the election was not disingenuous, despite accusations that Labor had raised baseless fears over the issue.“The groundwork for the Liberals to lose this seat was set in that nasty budget in 2014 when they made $500m worth of cuts to health,” he says. “People don’t want any meddling with Medicare and this is an issue I’ll be very vocal on. Hindmarsh has one of the oldest electorates in the country, with 20 per cent over 65, and I’ve heard them loud and clear.”Beyond the cut and thrust of the central policy issues, Georganas says he’s looking forward to once again playing an active role on the federal stage for issues that affect Greek Australians nationwide, as well as cultural diversity issues. The Parliamentary Friends of Greece group and the recently-established Parliamentary Friends of the Parthenon group will find him a staunch ally.Perhaps above all, Steve Georganas’ return as an MP is welcome at a time when the world, not just Australia, is experiencing a deficit in people’s respect for political representatives; a world where distrust stalks traditional political processes and positions, and in that vacuum, extreme views emerge and are taking root.At a time when One Nation is on the rise in Australia, Donald Trump is the Republican nominee in November’s US presidential election, and the right-wing of one political party in the UK has delivered Britain’s future isolation from the EU – carried on a wave of whipped-up xenophobia and misanthropy – there’s never been a better time for an Australian parliament to shine as a beacon of stable, collectively-responsible and compassionate unity. “It’s us politicians who have to make that connect to the public,” says Georganas. “It’s up to us to show where the new economies are, to not brush people aside. Things are getting out of hand and we have to somehow rope this stuff in. That’s the job of a politician: to make things better.”Steve Georganas is back where he belongs.

Balotelli could captain Italy in next game

first_imgNew Italy boss Roberto Mancini could be set to make a surprise choice in selecting Mario Balotelli as the captain for their next friendly game against France in NiceThis comes in light of the racist banner that was displayed by the supporters in Switzerland with the caption “my captain is of Italian blood” during Italy’s 2-1 win against Suadi Arabia.Balotelli, who scored on his return to the national team after a four-year absence, later responded on Instagram: “We’re in 2018, enough lads!”.The Nice forward was actually born in Palermo and was later adopted by an Italian family and raised in Brescia.The Azzurri normally hand down the captain’s armband to the player who has the most caps for the national side, which is AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci.However, he is expected to be rested for Friday’s game, which leaves both Balotelli and Mattia Caldara as the next possible choices for the captaincy with the duo tied at 34 caps each.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…While the latter would be expected to get the armband due to the fact that he has been called up 49 times to Balotelli’s 38, it is expected that the former Manchester City forward will get the nod by Mancini as a clear message to the racists.“It could be an idea,” the FIGC’s director general Michele Uva said on Radio 24, via Football-Italia.“It has to be down to the CT though, everything has to have a technical and not just social symbology.“We could soon have two captains of colour in the national teams, for me it’s very normal. A normal event, in a normal country.“Unfortunately idiots exist, and football sometimes attracts the evils of a country.”last_img read more

Matthews signs Blazers offer sheet

first_imgTUALATIN, Ore. — Nik Raivio’s time with the Portland Trail Blazers was short but sweet.The former Mountain View High School standout was cut from the Blazers’ Summer League team on Saturday, Blazers assistant coach Kaleb Canales said.Raivio acknowledged that he was not surprised by the move. He received a last-minute invitation to the team’s training camp. He then attended with the understanding that it was very unlikely that he would be allowed to travel with the squad to Las Vegas for a five-game exhibition schedule that begins at 3 p.m. today against Houston.“This isn’t the end of anything,” Raivio, 24, said.The former University of Portland star practiced with the Blazers’ 15-player summer squad this week, going against Portland players with regular-season roster spots such as Jeff Pendergraph, Dante Cunningham and Luke Babbitt.“I have no doubt I can play with those guys,” Raivio said.Canales, who will coach the summer team, said Raivio has a bright future in professional basketball.“He’s got great basketball sense when he’s out there on the court,” said Canales, following a morning workout at the team’s practice facility. “I think he’s a very intelligent, smart player. … He can shoot the basketball.”The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Raivio was not drafted after playing three seasons at the UP, where he averaged 14.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists and led the Pilots in scoring each season.Canales said that the one area Raivio needs to improve is his ballhandling. But the main factor in the decision to cut Raivio was that the former UP star is still recovering from a right Achilles tendon injury he suffered in January.last_img read more

Facebook expects to test privacy tool to clear history in spring 2019

first_imgFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks at the company’s annual developer conference.  James Martin Facebook said Monday a promised privacy tool that will allow users to clear their browsing history on the social network is still in the works but isn’t expected to launch until next year. In May, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced it was building a feature called “clear history” that would let users see what apps and websites they’ve interacted with and clear that information from their account. But as Recode pointed out, the tool still hasn’t been released seven months after Zuckerberg unveiled the company was building the feature. “We want to build something that’s truly helpful for everyone on Facebook,” David Baser, Facebook’s director of product management and leader of its privacy and data use team, said in a statement.  “We’d rather take the time to get it right than rushing something out.”Facebook intends to start testing the tool in Spring 2019, Baser said. But with nearly 2.3 billion users on the social network, the tech firm has run into challenges while building the privacy feature, he said. Facebook, for example, organizes web browsing data by date but “clear history” organizes them by user profile. That makes it difficult for Facebook to find the browsing data tied to an individual user. “To do this instantaneously for people so they can control it, has meant we’ve needed to build a new way for our systems to process information,” Baser said. Facebook has been under pressure to do more to protect user privacy after a data privacy scandal came to light in March. At that time, Cambridge Analytica, a UK consulting firm, was found to have harvested the personal data of roughly 87 million Facebook users without their permission.But Facebook’s seemingly endless series of scandals has been chipping away at user trust.

New experiment helps explain extraordinary optical transmission

first_img More information: Quasi-cylindrical wave contribution in experiments on extraordinary optical transmission, Nature, 492, 411–414 (20 December 2012) doi:10.1038/nature11669AbstractA metal film perforated by a regular array of subwavelength holes shows unexpectedly large transmission at particular wavelengths, a phenomenon known as the extraordinary optical transmission (EOT) of metal hole arrays. EOT was first attributed to surface plasmon polaritons, stimulating a renewed interest in plasmonics and metallic surfaces with subwavelength features. Experiments soon revealed that the field diffracted at a hole or slit is not a surface plasmon polariton mode alone. Further theoretical analysis predicted that the extra contribution, from quasi-cylindrical waves, also affects EOT. Here we report the experimental demonstration of the relative importance of surface plasmon polaritons and quasi-cylindrical waves in EOT by considering hole arrays of different hole densities. From the measured transmission spectra, we determine microscopic scattering parameters which allow us to show that quasi-cylindrical waves affect EOT only for high densities, when the hole spacing is roughly one wavelength. Apart from providing a deeper understanding of EOT, the determination of microscopic scattering parameters from the measurement of macroscopic optical properties paves the way to novel design strategies.

In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes how they adjusted the distance between the holes while keeping the wavelength of light constant and in so doing discovered the degree to which two different waveforms impact the metal’s transmission properties. © 2012 Phys.orgcenter_img Sample design. Credit: Nature, 492, 411–414 (20 December 2012) doi:10.1038/nature11669 EOP occurs when researchers drill very small holes in a very thin metal plate and then shine a light on it. Despite the fact that the holes should be too small to allow light to pass through, they appear to do so anyway. Scientists attributed this phenomenon to plasmonics – a strong paring between the incident light field and the motion of free electrons along the surface of the metal. What happens, they say, is that light striking free electrons on the surface of the metal cause a stream of electron motion that moves along the surface. When a hole is encountered, the plasmons move through the hole causing glowing to occur on the other side, which is perceived as the original light.Subsequent research showed however, that plasmonics alone could not explain the phenomenon. Drilling a single hole with the same volume as the total of all the little ones resulted in less light being emitted on the other side, for example; making the metal thinner did the same (it was later discovered that the thinner metal was not actually allowing more light through, but instead was allowing electrons on the opposite of the metal to be excited by the photons directly). This led to the idea that another waveform was involved – quasi-cylindrical waves (QCW) – which is where electrons behave differently near the holes, because they are there. What was not well understood however, was the degree to which each impacted the overall properties of EOP.To find out, the researchers drilled holes in several identical metal plates. The holes were spaced the same vertically but varied by very small amounts horizontally. By flashing light of the same wavelength on each of the plates and noting how much light passed through the holes compared to the other plates, the researchers were able to measure the degree to which each type of waveform was impacting the amount of light that was emitted out the other side.Besides increasing understanding of how EOP works in general, this new work will likely result in improvements in the development of devices that rely on its unique properties.

Researchers create blackest material ever made

first_img Material inspired by nature could turn water into fuel More information: Jianfeng Huang et al. Harnessing structural darkness in the visible and infrared wavelengths for a new source of light, Nature Nanotechnology (2015). DOI: 10.1038/nnano.2015.228AbstractEngineering broadband light absorbers is crucial to many applications, including energy-harvesting devices and optical interconnects. The performances of an ideal absorber are that of a black body, a dark material that absorbs radiation at all angles and polarizations. Despite advances in micrometre-thick films, the absorbers available to date are still far from an ideal black body. Here, we describe a disordered nanostructured material that shows an almost ideal black-body absorption of 98–99% between 400 and 1,400 nm that is insensitive to the angle and polarization of the incident light. The material comprises nanoparticles composed of a nanorod with a nanosphere of 30 nm diameter attached. When diluted into liquids, a small concentration of nanoparticles absorbs on average 26% more than carbon nanotubes, the darkest material available to date. By pumping a dye optical amplifier with nanosecond pulses of ∼100 mW power, we harness the structural darkness of the material and create a new type of light source, which generates monochromatic emission (∼5 nm wide) without the need for any resonance. This is achieved through the dynamics of light condensation in which all absorbed electromagnetic energy spontaneously generates single-colour energy pulses. As the researches also note, it is likely impossible to create the perfect black material that absorbs all of the energy that strikes it, and then emits it without any loss of energy. Still, scientists would like to come closer because it is believed that such materials could help in creating better or more efficient devices, such as solar collectors. In this new effort, the team bested the blackness of previous materials using carbon nanotubes by emulating what they found when studying the all-white cyphochilus beetle. The result was a an extremely tiny nanoparticle rod resting on an equally tiny nanoparticle sphere (30 nm diameter), which was able to absorb approximately 98 to 99 percent of the light in the spectrum between 400 and 1,400 nm, which meant that it is able to absorb approximately 26 percent more light than any other known material—and it does so from all angles and polarizations.The researchers noted that the scales on the cyphochilus beetle—a photonic crystal structure—caused the beetle’s shell to reflect light very efficiently. They took that idea and turned it on its head by inverting the structure and used the idea of chaotic energy harvesting to create the extremely black material—the surface of the structure is disordered, which creates a pattern of random pits, each consisting of infinitely long metallic waveguides. As a bonus, the material can be easily created and applied and used both in and out of liquids. Also, by firing a laser at it, they created a new type of light source that generated monochromatic emissions without the necessity of resonance.The team notes that devices using such an application might be used for desalination projects, and, of course, in solar energy collecting systems, and perhaps in optical interconnects. They also suggest the material might even lead to using a wholly new approach in the design of such devices. Explore further © 2015 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

Medical imaging plays an increasing role in the accurate… read more January 9, 2015 — Radiologists can transmit their reports, which can also contain access to images, to their referring physicians’ electronic health records (EHR) systems securely, efficiently, and cost effectively using carefully selected technology, according to a presentation by Advanced Data Systems Corp. (ADS) at the 2014 Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Nov. 30-Dec. 5. The transmitting of radiology reports in this manner also helps referring physicians satisfy one of their major requirements for Stage 2 Meaningful Use (MU) incentives. Referral relationships are solidified when reports can be transmitted to referring physicians’ EHRs, while also helping the referring physician satisfy MU.Steve Hamburg, ADS director of radiology information system (RIS) sales, explored this topic as part of a program presented by Kenneth Dreyer, DO, Ph.D., and RadiologyMU.  Hamburg also participated in the panel discussion and question and answer session following the presentation. “A major theme and topic of conversation throughout this year’s RSNA conference was how to effectively transmit radiology reports and data across enterprises and disparate technology platforms to satisfy referring physicians. The cost-effective answer is having a highly interoperable RIS that is enabled to handle this type of transfer,” Hamburg said. Hamburg pointed out that ideally, transmitted reports — as well as the ability to capture images directly from those reports — need not involve multiple costly interfaces. “Radiologists should be able to provide EHR-agnostic data formats acceptable to any physician’s EHR”, he stated.  He emphasized these important benefits for radiology practices in today’s competitive environment.    “Keeping referrers referring is perhaps the key element needed by any radiology practice,” Hamburg noted, adding, “A three-way win scenario for all of the players exists when the radiology practice can securely deliver its reports electronically. The radiology practice, its referring physicians, and their mutual patients all benefit through this type of interoperability.” Hamburg concluded by saying, “Opinion and conversation at RSNA indicated that radiology practices unable to provide this type of data delivery capability will no doubt see a dwindling of incoming referrals as patients are redirected by referring physicians to radiology and imaging centers that can provide this efficiency and convenience.  For that reason, implementing a reports delivery capability should be a ‘must’ on any radiology administrator’s to-do list for 2015.”For more information: www.adsc.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Information Technology | July 31, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Smart Devices Can Improve Efficiency Innovation is trending toward improved efficiency — but not at the expense of patient safety, according to… 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 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.
