Scaling up, and down

first_imgBreaking down heady scientific concepts is Lisa Randall’s specialty.The Harvard theoretical physicist, an authority on both the study of the minute, such as the building blocks of matter, and the massive, like the makeup of the universe, has written works that help to demystify the worlds of cosmology and particle physics.Now the dark-matter guru is illuminating science with art.In “Measure for Measure” a new exhibition at Harvard’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Randall and eight Los Angeles-based artists dive into the artistic and scientific notion of scale.The concept is central to the role of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a mammoth ring of superconducting magnets buried underground on the French-Swiss border, whose goal is to unlock secrets of the universe by smashing together subatomic particles. Much of Randall’s own theoretical work involves the LHC. She describes the giant machine’s relationship to scale in her recently published “Knocking on Heaven’s Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World.”“The question is how do you get good art while thinking about real scientific themes,” said Harvard Professor Lisa Randall (far right). “The idea I had was to come up with a theme that would resonate with both artists and scientists. Of course, artists are thinking about scale all the time, and so are we.”It was while Randall, the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science, was finishing her new book that the Los Angeles Art Association asked her to curate a show. Randall chose to develop the exhibition around the idea of scale, a subject much on her mind, and a vital concept for artists and scientists alike.“The question is how do you get good art while thinking about real scientific themes,” said Randall. “The idea I had was to come up with a theme that would resonate with both artists and scientists. Of course, artists are thinking about scale all the time, and so are we.”Randall curated the show with artist Lia Halloran, asking contributors to develop works that examined scale. The resulting exhibition features contemporary works that include a video installation, photography, and a social experiment involving cupcakes.The show debuted at the Los Angeles association and then moved to the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University.This isn’t Randall’s only foray into the art world. Two years ago she collaborated on her first opera with the Spanish composer Hector Parra, who asked her to write a libretto based on her theory of extra dimensions to the universe.  The result, “Hypermusic Prologue: A Projective Opera in Seven Planes,” premiered at the Pompidou Center in Paris in 2009.“I see art not so much as teaching science but maybe making people aware of scientific ideas and intricacies,” said Randall. “Within this new show, there are themes and ideas that are resonating and can really make people think more broadly about art and science.”For David Rodowick, the show’s collaborative nature represents an important innovative direction for Harvard. “I am interested more and more in opening the Carpenter Center to collaborations with other parts of the University,” said Rodowick, who is director of the center and is the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Visual and Environmental Studies. “One of the things we should be doing at the Carpenter Center is framing art within broader dialogues.”Each piece in the new exhibition engages viewers in dynamic, sometimes difficult ways.Barbara Parmet’s work, “Redwood With Floating Pine Needles,” challenges the notion of scale with a dizzying photograph of a giant Redwood tree that extends from floor to ceiling.Adding her clever twist on scale is the work of artist Susan Sironi, called “Actual Size: A Self Portrait in Four Parts.” Using classic tales that play with scale, like Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and Jonathan Swift’s “Gulliver’s Travels” as her base, Sironi carved into the books tracings of her hand and foot, her profile, and a cross section of her neck.Perhaps the most surprising take on the show’s theme is the work of Elizabeth Tobias, who explored the concept of economic scale. Over several months, Tobias hit the streets of Los Angeles, asking people to jot down on an index card their thoughts on hunger and poverty in return for a cupcake.The result of her efforts, “The Cupcake Project,” is housed in a yellow emergency tent on the center’s first floor. The space is softly lit with pastel Chinese lanterns, from which hang those index cards. The gentle tone of the presentation is in sharp contrast to the hard message of the work. One card reads, “My sister is homeless and has a 9-year-old that does not get cupcakes even on her birthday.”The show, on view through Dec. 22, is made possible with support from the Provostial Fund for Arts and Humanities at Harvard University.last_img read more

Tennis News Australian Open: Rafael Nadal beats Tomas Berdych to enter quarterfinals

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Melbourne: Rampant Rafael Nadal on Sunday battered ex-world number four Tomas Berdych to enter the quarterfinal round of the ongoing Australian Open in Melbourne. The ace tennis player, however,  has said he would be taking a step into the unknown against “dangerous” Frances Tiafoe in the Australian Open quarter-finals. The Spanish 17-time Grand Slam winner dismissed the unseeded Czech 6-0, 6-1, 7-6 (7/4) to tear into the last eight without dropping a tournament set.Next in the firing line for Nadal is giant-killing American Tiafoe – who celebrated his 21st birthday in style Sunday by beating 20th seed Grigor Dimitrov. “It’s going to be the first time that we play each other. Yeah, he’s playing great,” he said of 39th-ranked Tiafoe who created one of the shocks of the tournament by knocking out fifth seed Kevin Anderson in the first round.”I know him, of course. He’s been on the tour for a while. He’s young. When you have younger players coming, they have always more attention.”Tiafoe, whose best previous Slam result was reaching the third round of Wimbledon last year, warmed up for Melbourne by partnering Serena Williams in the mixed teams Hopman Cup. “He’s a very dynamic player, aggressive one. Of course, he’s dangerous,” said Nadal.”He’s in the quarter-finals. He won great matches during the whole event. He’s super quick. And he’s able to change directions fast. “He goes to the net fast. He has a huge forehand, good serve. So let’s see”. A shell-shocked Berdych finally exerted some pressure on the 17-time Grand Slam champion in the third set, holding set points in the ninth and 11th games. But the Czech missed five months last year with a back injury. Nadal, who also missed chunks of last season and had foot surgery after the US Open, had won 19 of the pair’s 24 previous meetings.As he served at 5-4 in the breaker, Berdych let his frustration get the better of him when the serve clock mysteriously packed up. “I don’t see (the clock) when we change over and I don’t see now,” Berdych moaned to the umpire about the finicky Spaniard being too slow between points. “Take as long as you want, Rafa,” shouted one fan.Berdych dismissed the incident after. “It was not working,” he said of the clock.  “I think it’s already done. What can we do? It’s all right. It’s just a clock.”Nadal, who is aiming to become the first man in the Open era to win all four Slams twice if he can add to his 2009 Aussie crown, said Berdych finally came to the party after winning just one point in the first two sets and gave him a test.”I think the third set was the real Tomas Berdych,” Nadal said after reaching his 11th Australian Open quarter-final. “He made more mistakes than usual in the first two sets.”The 33-year-old Berdych agreed. “The first two sets it was me back before six months. For the third set, I finally showed up on the court, so that’s good,” said the world number 57. “That’s the only positive I can take from the match. That’s it”. last_img read more

“Extraordinary” Radiocarbon Anomaly Found in Tree Rings

first_imgA tree ring sample from a bristlecone pine reveals something weird happened to the sun around 5480 BC.This paper’s title should set off alarms for radiocarbon dating: “Large 14C excursion in 5480 BC indicates an abnormal sun in the mid-Holocene” (PNAS). For one thing, Christians might celebrate the apparent trend away from designating dates BCE (“before Common Era”) and back to BC (“Before Christ”). But what about this “abnormal sun”? And what does the carbon-14 anomaly mean for radiocarbon dating?Carbon-14 contents in tree rings tell us information of the past cosmic ray intensities because cosmic rays produce 14C in the atmosphere. We found a signature of a quite large increase of incoming cosmic ray intensity in the mid-Holocene (the 5480 BC event) from the measurement of 14C content in North American tree rings. The cause of this event is supposed to be an extremely weak sun, or a combination of successive strong solar bursts and variation of a solar magnetic activity. In any case, 14C variation of the 5480 BC event is extraordinary in the Holocene, and this event indicates the abnormal solar activity compared with other periods.The paper does not quantify how “extraordinary” this “large” increase was, other than to say it “one of the largest increase rates (0.51‰/y) in the Holocene,” faster even than the Maunder Minimum and two other known excursions. Unfortunately, they do not state what it means for published radiocarbon dates. The authors mainly focus on the fact that tree ring dating from this slice of California bristlecone pine provided finer resolution than previously-known anomalies—and may be indicative of other rapid changes in radiocarbon production in the atmosphere arising from different mechanisms. Readers may not be aware of the unknowns in this dating method:The 14C contents in tree rings are normally affected by the solar magnetic activities and the geomagnetic activities, which modulate the GCR flux [galactic cosmic rays] to Earth. There is an excellent tree ring record of 14C data in the international radiocarbon calibration curve IntCal. This record has a typically 10-y resolution extending to 13,900 y B.P. We can see solar and geomagnetic variations exhibited in the radiocarbon record as decadal to millennial time scale, i.e., 50- to 100-y variation such as grand solar minima, and ∼1,000-y variations of the geomagnetic dipole moment.On the other hand, there is little understanding of annual 14C variations, due to the lack of annual 14C data for periods before AD 1510. Previously, it was considered that annual variations of 14C contents do not change rapidly because the original signal is diluted and attenuated by the carbon cycle. Although most of annual 14C data show a gradual variation, there are some periods that show significant and rapid annual changes. The AD 775 and AD 994 (or AD 993) events are two examples of large changes, which occur at annual resolution. The 14C variation of these two events have a characteristic increase over 1 y to 2 y followed by a decay that reflects a rapid input of cosmic rays to the atmosphere within 1 y and the decay by the global carbon cycle. The most likely explanation of these events is that they were the result of extreme SPEs [solar proton events], based on verifications of annual 14C measurements using worldwide tree samples and annual 10Be measurements in ice cores from Antarctica and Greenland. It is possible that there were more annual cosmic ray events like the 775 event and even other types of annual rapid 14C variation in the past.What’s notable is that this “extraordinary” and “large” anomaly was just discovered after decades of trust in radiocarbon dating. Experts have their calibration curves, which are supposed to tell technicians how to account for anomalies. Now, here’s another “excursion” away from the norm. Some process, whether the sun or galactic cosmic rays,  may have produced more 14C than expected that year (however reliable the date 5480 BC can be regarded). If so, it seems likely that radiocarbon dates would be off by some unspecified amount. Perhaps it is not a big adjustment. But how many more excursions will surface in the future? What other unknown unknowns give false confidence in this highly-regarded dating method? Their last sentence sounds a warning: “In any case, the 14C variation of the 5480 BC event indicates an unprecedented anomaly in solar activity compared to other periods.”We alert interested geophysicists to this paper and solicit comments. Does it having any significant bearing on radiocarbon dates? (Visited 336 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

New journalism centre for SU

first_imgAn artist’s impression of the newMediafrica center. (Image: Stellenbosch University) MEDIA CONTACTS • SU Department of Journalism+27 21 808 3488 RELATED ARTICLES • Rhodes hosts world journalism meet • New M&G journalism centre • Boosting African journalism • Reshaping reportage on Africa• Business school to expand in AfricaWilma den HartighStellenbosch University (SU) has launched its new journalism centre, Mediafrica. The new centre will become the base for developing well-trained, professional media workers who can competently tell Africa’s story, and report objectively on important issues affecting the continent.SU is home to one of the top 12 journalism schools in Africa, according to a 2007 Unesco survey.Prof Lizette Rabe, head of the SU Journalism Department, said in a statement that Mediafrica will train a generation of journalists who will guard democracy through their ethical reporting and investigative work in a range of media genres.“An informed society is an empowered society,” said Rabe. “Journalism is one of the keys to empowerment. We need quality journalism to advance human development in Africa. Mediafrica will help us to realise these goals.”The new Mediafrica building, which is currently under construction, will be a modern, double-storey structure behind the Journalism Department’s existing premises on the central campus.Students will take their studies in a multifunctional lecture hall on the ground floor, and will be able to relax and interact with each other in a separate area. The upper floor will house a multimedia newsroom and video editing facilities.Mediafrica will also enable the SU journalism department to handle an increased interest in journalism studies. Rabe said that limited space and new developments in technology prompted them to consider a new building.“Our department was designed for 20 postgraduate students, and we have grown to about 75 students. We also needed an integrated multimedia newsroom.”She said journalism has always had a certain allure, although many have a misconception about the career.“We have always had many more applications than the positions we have, and deem ourselves lucky in that respect – that the crème de la crème study with us,” she said.The department has a comprehensive selection process, which ensures that only the most dedicated students win a place. “We do not want to grow bigger than we currently are – we see ourselves as a ‘boutique style’ journalism school and we remain exclusively postgraduate. That is part of our journalism education philosophy,” Rabe said.Serving societyThrough Mediafrica, the journalism department will contribute to the SU Hope Project, which was established with a view to aligning the university’s core activities with certain development themes from the international Millennium Development Goals. With this endeavour the institution hopes to serve society better.SU Rector and Vice-Chancellor Prof Russel Botman said in a statement that a strong media and well-trained journalism professionals play a crucial role in eradicating poverty, attaining peace and security, promoting human dignity and health, entrenching democracy and human rights, and ensuring sustainable development in Africa.Freedom of the pressRabe said that, relative to Africa, South Africa has great media freedom. However, relative to the West, South Africa has certain limitations.“With the current noises, media freedom is under serious threat and the public, private and business sectors must all pull together to avoid the threats becoming reality. If so, we will not be a democracy anymore,” she said.African journalists who strive for a free and independent media face regular harassment at the hands of state authorities. Zimbabwean journalist John Masuku, executive director of the independent radio station Voice of the People, which broadcasts out of Harare, has personally experienced this persecution.Masuku is working on his master’s at SU on the role of the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation in dealing with national issues. He spoke openly about the role of the media in building a democracy.“We are the watchdogs of our fragile, polarised system of government. After many years of one party rule, Zimbabwe is characterised by a lack of freedom of expression and association.”He said that the media can help to improve this situation by monitoring and reporting objectively on developments. “We must also expose all forms of corruption, and help the nation heal. We must make inputs into constitutional and media reform.”Gabriel Baglo, executive director of the Federation of African Journalists, said in the 2009 African Press Freedom Report that press freedom in Africa is still under threat, despite 20 years of democratisation. This report is issued by the International Federation of Journalists.Independent journalism continues to be a dangerous profession on the continent, even in peaceful zones, said Baglo, adding that governments and politicians, and economic and religious groups often see journalists and the media as impostors who should not involve themselves in reporting critical issues.Postgraduate studySU’s journalism department offers three postgraduate programmes. The BPhil degree in Journalism, a one-year honours course, is aimed at students who already have a university qualification. The MPhil and DPhil programmes focus on research, with a priority on issues relevant to Africa and that will make a difference to both to journalism and society.Through the new multimedia training and research centre, the SU Department of Journalism hopes to continue strengthening the link between press freedom, human rights and democracy.last_img read more

Anti-Aids momentum ‘must not be lost’

first_img1 December 2011It has taken 10 years of sustained effort and investment for the world to achieve its current momentum in the fight against HIV/Aids, creating the “very real possibility of getting ahead of the epidemic” – but only if the momentum is not lost, says the United Nations.Growing access to HIV/Aids treatment and prevention services has resulted in a 15 percent decline in new infections over the past decade and a 22 percent drop in Aids-related deaths in the past five years, the United Nations (UN) said on the eve of World Aids Day on Wednesday.“There is now a very real possibility of getting ahead of the epidemic,” the World Health Organisation’s Gottfried Hirnschall said when releasing a report on the global response to the pandemic. “But this can only be achieved by both sustaining and accelerating this momentum over the next decade and beyond.”New science, technologies, approachesAccording to the report, advances in HIV science and programme innovations over the past year have raised hope for further progress in the future.It is crucial that new science, technologies and approaches be applied to improve the efficacy of HIV programmes, especially during the current global economic uncertainty and related austerity measures, said the report.Some of the successes include improved access to HIV testing services, evident in the fact that 61 percent of pregnant women in eastern and southern Africa now receive testing and counselling for HIV, up from 14 percent in 2005.An estimated 48 percent of pregnant women in need of effective medicines to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV received them last year.Antiretroviral therapies (ART), which improve the health and well-being of those infected and stop further HIV transmission, are available now for 6.65-million people in low- and middle-income countries, which account for 47 percent of the 14.2-million people eligible to receive them.Treatment costs outweighed by economic gainsThe report also argues that investment in HIV services could lead to total gains of up to US$34-billion by 2020 in increased economic activity and productivity, more than offsetting the costs of ART programmes, as healthier people are better able to engage in financially gainful activities.Despite the progress, more than half of all infected people in need of antiretroviral therapies in low- and middle-income countries are still unable to access them. Many do not even know that they are infected.Some countries are still not tailoring their programmes to meet the needs of those most at risk or in need. In many cases, vulnerable groups – including adolescent girls, people who inject drugs, men who have sex with men, transgender people, sex workers, prisoners and migrants – remain unable to access HIV prevention and treatment services, the report notes.Paul De Lay, deputy executive director of UNAids, cautioned that funding shortfalls could undermine efforts to roll back the disease. “To reach these targets, we estimate we need between $22-billion and $24-billion per year by the year 2015,” De Lay said.“Today we are falling short by $7-billion. Now, more than ever, ending Aids requires a unified approach of governments, multilateral agencies, NGOs, foundations, the private sector and individuals.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Warriors look to eliminate Rockets without Kevin Durant

first_imgDA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, right, drives the ball against Houston Rockets’ James Harden during the second half of Game 5 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series Wednesday, May 8, 2019, in Oakland, Calif. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)HOUSTON  — In the Western Conference finals last season, the Houston Rockets had home-court advantage and took a 3-2 lead over the Golden State Warriors before Houston star Chris Paul went down with a hamstring injury that kept him out for the rest of the series.As these teams prepare for Game 6 of the conference semifinals Friday night, the Warriors find themselves in almost the same situation Houston was in last year.ADVERTISEMENT The Rockets are 5-0 at home this postseason and went 31-10 at the Toyota Center in the regular season.As the Warriors look to move on without Durant and the more than 34 points a game he’s averaged this postseason, they know no one player can make up for his absence in this series where each game has been close.“The series has been a battle,” Klay Thompson said. “Each game, such little margin for error. We know we’re going to have to be near perfect to go down to the Houston without Kevin and win a game. It’s going to be hard.”The Warriors will need Thompson to build on what he did in Game 5 after he shook off a couple of tough games to make 5 of 10 3-pointers and lead the team with 27 points.“I’m never going to waver with my confidence when it comes to shooting … but it’s the playoffs,” he said. “There are going to be plenty of ups and downs. We’ve done this so many times. We’re not going to lose confidence over a couple bad shooting nights. That’s the way the basketball gods can be. Last week just wasn’t my best games. Hopefully I can rebound with a great one on Friday.”ADVERTISEMENT UST pride: Cherry Rondina is UAAP Season 81 MVP, Eya Laure is Rookie of Year MOST READ PRESSURE IS ON: Paul. The Rockets need Paul to step up after the nine-time All-Star struggled in Game 5. Paul managed a playoff-low 11 points on 3 of 14 shooting and went 0 for 6 on 3-pointers. He said Houston can’t worry about its missed opportunity on Wednesday night and must look forward.“We just got to be better,” he said. “We got to rebound. Let this one go … it’s over and done with. We can’t get it back. We got to go back home and take care of Game 6.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess If the Rockets hope to force the series back to Oakland for Game 7 on Sunday night, reigning MVP James Harden will have to be more aggressive after scoring just five points in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s loss.But Harden believes good defense will be the key to keeping this series going.“Defensively is how you win the series,” he said. “It’s plain and simple. You can’t … nitpick, overanalyze the game. You got to get stops in order to put yourself in a position to win. It’s pretty simple.”Some things to know about Game 6 on Friday night.WARRIORS AT ROCKETSGolden State leads 3-2. Game 6, 9 p.m. EDT, ESPN.PRESSURE IS ON: Curry’s Shot. Stephen Curry is still trying to find a shooting rhythm and it hasn’t been fun for the two-time MVP. Not that he’s lost any confidence in letting it fly — from anywhere. Without Durant, his scoring contributions become even more important. Curry had another rough shooting night in Game 5, going 9 for 23 and 3 of 11 on 3s to still finish with 25 points.“I thought I was aggressive the whole game. I just missed shots,” he said. “Again, that’s going to happen. Right before KD got hurt I missed a layup right at the rim, a wide-open three in transition. That was, like, the lowest point of the game for me in terms of just searching. But when he went out, got the ball in your hands, initiate the offense, shots went in. Again, it’s all about not losing confidence in yourself, just find a way to find any type of life on the offensive end.”INJURY WATCH: Durant didn’t make the trip to Houston, remaining in the Bay Area to receive treatment for his injury. The Warriors said he’ll be re-evaluated next week.KEEP AN EYE ON: Rebounds. Through the first five games, the team which has led in rebounds has won the game. Offensive rebounds have been particularly important with P.J. Tucker’s work in that area in Games 3 and 4 helping Houston close out both games. Tucker has had at least 10 rebounds in the last four games. The Warriors are just a win away from advancing to the conference finals for the fifth straight time, but will have to do it without NBA-playoffs leading scorer Kevin Durant, who will miss the rest of the series with a strained right calf.The two-time defending champions took advantage of Paul’s injury in 2018 to win two straight after falling behind 3-2 and eliminated the Rockets on their home court to advance.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsThe Rockets don’t want to see Golden State celebrate a series victory on their home court again and are determined to bounce back after Wednesday night’s loss to avoid being eliminated by the Warriors for the fourth time in five seasons.“I am a competitor and this team is competitive, we have to go down and win,” Houston’s Eric Gordon said. “We know the situation and we have to go back home and win and that is going to be our mentality.
