I am proud of the role we play in the success of our clients’ businesses and grateful for the relationships we have developed.” Further leadership departures or layoffs have not yet been announced.last_img read more

Black Voter Turnout in DC Prince Georges County

first_imgVoting advocates and sitting legislators, including members of the Congressional Black Caucus, began expressing concern as early 2012 that many African Americans would sidestep mid-term elections to the detriment of their local officials, effectively placing the House and the Senate into conservative, Republican hands.Voter turnout regularly drops in midterm elections, and has done so since the 1840s. In 2008, for instance, 57.1 percent of the voting-age population cast ballots — the highest level in four decades — as President Barack Obama took office. Two years later, only 36.9 percent voted in the mid-term election that put the House back in Republican hands. Even though higher than expected turnouts in D.C. came on-behalf of non-profits, churches, and colleges providing on-the-ground transportation, the total number was still not expected to reach beyond the 60 percent mark for total eligible voters, according to Vote4Justice data.Further, according to the Maryland County Elections Board, Prince George’s County residents followed the general pattern of voting overwhelmingly in presidential elections, but demonstrated a noticeable decline in voting habits for mid-term elections.Early voting numbers for Prince George’s County showed the predominantly African-American enclave boasted 46,236 early votes – a little more than 8 percent of the 544,677 total active eligible voters.  And while the numbers are an increase over previous years, many fear that when the numbers are officially tallied next week, the number of African American voters will remain comparatively low.Drew Desilver wrote in the Pew Research Center’s July 2014 FactTank: News In the Numbers that “in an era of increasingly polarized politics, campaign strategists must decide how much effort to put into persuading independent-minded voters to come out and support their candidate without antagonizing their party’s core supporters, who are more likely to vote anyway. Obama’s victories in 2008 and 2012 were largely due to his campaign’s success in expanding the electorate — inspiring new voters and increasing turnout among Blacks.”President Obama offered a stinging, but good-natured admonishment at an Upper Marlboro crowd gathered for Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown, recently.“It will be a done deal if you vote, but you’ve got to get that cousin ‘Pookie’ sitting at home on the couch.  He’s watching football right now instead of being here at this rally. You’ve got to talk to him and let him know it is not that hard to exercise the franchise that previous generations fought so hard to obtain,” Obama said.Encouraging Pookie to vote will be harder than expected as demonstrated Nov. 4.  Exit pollsters were able to assess a continuing lack of interest in voting among urban, disenfranchised Black youth.Outside the Greenleaf Recreation Center in Southwest D.C., for instance, a body of roughly fifteen young men lounged in their public housing yards, uninterested in the bottlenecked traffic just feet away.  Campaign volunteers spent the day calling over to them, attempting to coax them into the voting booths inside.  When asked why they had not and would not vote in the D.C. elections, the comments were thunderous and angry.“They don’t listen to us anyway.  Just look at this neighborhood where the city has let developers in to tear down our homes and put up stadiums where we are not welcome and apartments we cannot afford to live in,” DeMarcus Fortune said.  “How do you choose to elect a person as mayor who keeps calling this change positive when it negatively impacts you?”Fortune, said that his grandmother’s home used to sit on a corner near Half Street in Southeast, currently used as a parking lot for Nationals Park; his elementary school, Syphax, has been gutted and rehabbed into a luxury condominium.  Despite its condition, Fortune said that house was one his grandmother had saved half her life to purchase and rear her family.Tony Wright, one of his buddies, echoed similar sentiments.“I know that people fought and died for my right to vote, but who do you vote for when you don’t trust any of the contenders?  Politicians call our neighborhood ‘blighted’ and look at us like we’re garbage.  We’re the trash that has to be removed in order for them to improve the city.  Bowser, Cantania, and Schwartz have automatic messages calling my house all day and night, but none had enough courtesy to come here.  I pay taxes, I go to work every day and probably work harder at it than most people, so why do my interests not count?” Wright asked.Election Day returns for Wards 7 and 8, show dismal turnouts – in Ward 7, of the 58,378 eligible voters registered, only 26 percent (15,348) cast ballots; in Ward 8, that percentage was even less, with 21.49 percent of the 51,340 eligible voters (roughly 11,000) casting ballots.last_img read more

Brainwave headband makes debut at Paris LeWeb meet

first_img One potential headband advantage would be using one’s brainwaves to control games. The brainwave-sensing headband was introduced by the company’s Ariel Garten, chief executive officer, in Paris Tuesday at the LeWeb 12 conference. The company is making a software developer kit available so that developers can write their own software.”We invite everyone to help unlock the potential of the technology alongside us,” she said.At the time of this writing they raised $237,515 out of their goal of $150,000. Their estimated shipping date for Muse is June 2013.InteraXon’s team says the headset working by turning brainwaves into binary ones and zeros. “We’re like interpreters fluent in the language of the mind: our system analyzes the frequency of your brainwaves and then translates them into a control signal for the computer to understand.”Having worked on their headset since 2007, their finished design calls for two sensors on the forehead and two sensors behind the ears. Muse uses sensors to pick up the tiny electrical outputs generated by the brain’s activity. As the mind shifts between concentration and relaxation, Muse’s algorithms detect the changes in the brain and show those changes in real time. Those lending support for the concept indicate that the headset has more potential than becoming just a fun gadget. In the company’s promotional video, a Stanford MD notes that the ability to “look at your own mind” and understand the effects of activities can be quite useful.

Another of the many ways to put it—they believe your computer can be so into you. And vice-versa. InteraXon, a Canadian company, is focused on making a business out of mind-control technology via a headband device, and they are planning to launch this as a $199 brainwave computer controller called Muse. The company is running an Indiegogo campaign to obtain needed funds. Muse is a Bluetooth-connected headset with four electroencephalography sensors, communicating with the person’s computer via the Bluetooth connection. © 2012 Phys.org Citation: Brainwave headband makes debut at Paris LeWeb meet (2012, December 5) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-12-brainwave-headband-debut-paris-leweb.html InteraXon looking for crowdfunding for Muse, a brainwave-sensor headband (w/ Video)last_img read more

Chinese team runs cold atomic clock in space for 15 months

first_imgIn-orbit operation of an atomic clock based on laser-cooled 87Rb atoms. Principle and structure of the space cold atom clock (CAC). The capture zone is a magneto-optical trap (MOT) with a folded beam design. The ring interrogation cavity is used for the microwave field to interrogate the cold atoms. In the detection zone, cold atoms in both hyperfine states are detected. The clock signal is obtained by feeding the error signal to the frequency of microwave source.

DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-05219-z Neglected atom has top properties for atomic clocks Journal information: Nature Communications Citation: Chinese team runs cold atomic clock in space for 15 months (2018, July 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-07-chinese-team-cold-atomic-clock.html Cold atomic clocks keep time by measuring atomic oscillations in free fall (so no interference occurs). They are chilled, as their name implies, to near absolute zero using lasers, which makes them more precise. It would be convenient for researchers to have a cold atomic clock run in space—that would allow for measuring time more precisely for such things as GPS applications. But space presents challenges that are not present on Earth, including the size and weight of the apparatus—both are at a premium on spacecraft. There is also the matter of shielding the clock from cosmic radiation. Such roadblocks have prevented the use of these clocks in space, until now. In this new effort, the researchers report that they have successfully run a cold atomic clock on board an Earth-orbiting vehicle—the Tiangong-2 Chinse space station. They report further that they ran the clock for 15 months, and during that time, they achieved a frequency stability of 3.0 x 10−13τ−1/2.The clock used by the team was encased in three layers of mu-metal and was held at a pressure of 10-12 atmospheres. The servo-motors used to stabilize the pressure were also shielded to prevent interference from their magnetic fields. Inside of the device was a trap isolating 50 million rubidium-87 atoms held steady by microwaves and laser pulses. Measuring was done using interferometry.The researchers suggest similar space-based clocks could be used for metrology as well as for testing principles of General Relativity and other fundamental physics constants. A team of researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences has successfully operated a cold atomic clock in space for a period of 15 months. In their paper published in the journal Nature Communications, the group describes how they succeeded in achieving the difficult task.center_img © 2018 Phys.org Explore further More information: Liang Liu et al. In-orbit operation of an atomic clock based on laser-cooled 87Rb atoms, Nature Communications (2018). DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-05219-zAbstractAtomic clocks based on laser-cooled atoms are widely used as primary frequency standards. Deploying such cold atom clocks (CACs) in space is foreseen to have many applications. Here we present tests of a CAC operating in space. In orbital microgravity, the atoms are cooled, trapped, launched, and finally detected after being interrogated by a microwave field using the Ramsey method. Perturbing influences from the orbital environment on the atoms such as varying magnetic fields and the passage of the spacecraft through Earth’s radiation belt are also controlled and mitigated. With appropriate parameters settings, closed-loop locking of the CAC is realized in orbit and an estimated short-term frequency stability close to 3.0 × 10−13τ−1/2 has been attained. The demonstration of the long-term operation of cold atom clock in orbit opens possibility on the applications of space-based cold atom sensors. This document is subject to copyright.
