Gory murders stabbings kids slain Killers found not criminally responsible

first_imgThe Canadian Press EDMONTON — A review board at Alberta Hospital in Edmonton is deciding whether a man who killed five young people at a house party in Calgary should be given some increased freedom. A judge found Matthew de Grood not criminally responsible in the 2014 killings because he was suffering from schizophrenia. Here’s a look at some other cases in which the finding was made or sought.Gregory Despres: Fatally stabbed two elderly neighbours in Minto, N.B., in 2005, decapitating one of them. Despres, a naturalized U.S. citizen, had crossed the border despite guards finding him with a small arsenal including a chainsaw, a sword and brass knuckles. He told them he was an assassin on a military mission. Three psychiatrists diagnosed him with paranoid schizophrenia. He was found not criminally responsible. Elaine Campione: Drowned her daughters, who were three and 19 months, in a bathtub in 2006 during a custody battle with her ex-husband. Doctors diagnosed the Barrie, Ont., woman with unspecified psychosis, post-traumatic stress disorder from spousal abuse, depression and an eating disorder. But the Crown successfully argued her mental illness didn’t prevent her from knowing right from wrong. Campione was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no parole eligibility for 25 years.Glen Race: Pleaded guilty to the first-degree murder of Trevor Brewster and second-degree murder of Paul Michael Knott. Race suffered from schizophrenia and was not taking his medicine in May 2007 when he lured the Halifax men to their deaths. Court was told Race believed he was a vampire slayer and a god-like entity at the time of the killings. He was found not criminally responsible, based on a joint recommendation from the Crown and the defence.Allan Schoenborn: Killed his three children, who were 10, eight and five, in Merritt, B.C., in April 2008. Schoenborn was diagnosed with delusional disorder and said he killed the children to protect them from an imagined threat of sexual abuse. He was found not criminally responsible and is in a psychiatric hospital in Port Coquitlam, B.C.Vincent Li: Fatally stabbed and beheaded Tim McLean, a young man who was sleeping next to him on a Greyhound bus in Manitoba in July 2008. Li told a mental-health advocate he heard the voice of God telling him McLean was an alien whom he needed to destroy. Li was found not criminally responsible and was sent to the Selkirk Mental Health Centre. He saw his privileges expand slowly until February 2016 when Li, now known as Will Baker, won the right to eventually move out of a group home and live on his own.Francis Proulx: Shot Nancy Michaud, an aide to a Quebec cabinet minister, in the head after taking her hostage in 2008 while her two children slept. He took credit cards and banking information and had sex with her corpse. During his trial, he argued he had been on medication at the time and was not criminally responsible because of a mental issue. However, he was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.Guy Turcotte: Fatally stabbed his three-year-old daughter and five-year-old son in 2009. The Quebec cardiologist was found not criminally responsible and was sent to a psychiatric hospital in Montreal and released in December 2012. An Appeal Court overturned the verdict. In 2015, Turcotte was found guilty of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 17 years.Kimberly Noyes: Told police in 2009 that she had killed a 12-year-old autistic boy with a knife. Noyes, from Grand Forks, B.C., was found not criminally responsible for John Fulton’s death. Medical experts testified that she was bipolar and severely depressed, had gone off her medication and was hearing voices.Miloslav Kapsik: Bludgeoned his wife to death with a hammer, hitting her more than 100 times while they were watching a hockey game in 2010. Court was told he had been hearing voices. Medical records showed the Winnipeg man was first diagnosed with severe depression in 2003. The defence’s attempt to argue he was not criminally responsible was unsuccessful. He is serving a life sentence for second-degree murder, with no eligibility for parole for 10 years.Richard Kachkar: Stole a snowplow in January 2011 and in the middle of a two-hour rampage hit and killed Toronto police Sgt. Ryan Russell. Witnesses heard him yell about the Taliban, Chinese technology and microchips. He was found not criminally responsible.Luka Rocco Magnotta: Killed and dismembered Chinese exchange student Jun Lin in May 2012. Experts testified Magnotta is schizophrenic and was psychotic and out of touch with reality the night of the slaying. The prosecution said Magnotta had made a promise several months earlier to take the life of a human being. He was found guilty of first-degree murder.Trevor Kloschinsky: Killed Alberta peace officer Rod Lazenby, who had come to Kloschinsky’s rural property in August 2012 to investigate a dog complaint. He was charged with first-degree murder but found not criminally responsible. A judge ruled Kloschinsky’s delusional thinking prevented him from realizing what he was doing was wrong.Daniel Goodridge: Stabbed two people to death at a northern Alberta work camp in June 2015. A male victim was stabbed more than 70 times and parts of his body cut off before it was set on fire. A woman who tried to help the man was also stabbed to death. Goodridge was charged with first-degree murder and interfering with human remains. His trial was told that he had been hearing voices and believed his co-workers wanted to assault him. Court also heard he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and had mental-health issues dating back to Grade 7. A judge found him not criminally responsible.last_img read more

IIT KGP signs MoU with CDAC for high performance computing facility data

first_imgKolkata: The IIT Kharagpur has signed an MoU with Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) to set up a Petaflop high performance computing facility and data center funded under the National Supercomputing Mission. PetaFlop is the measurement of computing power based on the frequency of mathematical calculations that can be done per second. Setting up of the 1.3 PetaFlop high performance computing facility and data center is going to change the face of computation-based research and development in India, an IIT KGP statement said Thursday, adding that the MoU was signed on March 12. With the growing importance of high performance computing in newer research areas in cancer, data protection etc, such facilities as the one being built at IIT KGP will become a core factor in various research domains, the statement said.

Would prefer not to match more VVPATs EC to SC

first_imgNew Delhi: The Election Commission (EC) on Friday rejected the a plea by 21 Opposition parties seeking 50 per cent sample matching of the EVMs with the corresponding Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trails (VVPATs), and said that it should be allowed to continue with the present system. Seeking the dismissal of the plea by the 21 Opposition parties, the EC in its response said that the plea “does not raise any ground or base for altering” the existing system of sample checking and urged the court that the “present system … for the imminent elections be continued …” The EC said this in response to a notice by the top court on the Opposition parties plea for increasing the sample matching of the EVMs with the corresponding VVPATs. The top court had sought the EC’s response on March 25 when it had slammed the poll panel for insisting that there was no need for increasing the sample matching of the EVMs with the corresponding VVPATs.last_img read more

Deadly monsoon rains pummel southern Asia

Rabat – Heavy monsoon rains continue to cause massive destruction throughout several South Asian countries, killing hundreds and displacing millions more.At least 435 people have been reported dead in six Asian countries hit hard by the intense flooding from monsoon rains made even worse this year by Cyclone Komen. Combined rains brought over one meter of rainfall in parts of Bangladesh and Myanmar.In Myanmar, at least 47 people have died with over 200,000 others affected by the floods, which have left the government no choice but to appeal for international assistance on Tuesday. Many remote areas in Myanmar are still cut off by destruction caused by the floodwaters, leaving thousands of people stranded without relief.“Logistics are extremely difficult. Assessment teams are having a hard time reaching affected areas,” said Pierre Peron, Myanmar spokesman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.In India, at least 200 people have died, according to government officials.Floods caused two passenger trains traveling in Madhya Pradesh, India to derail on Tuesday, killing dozens of those who were on board. Officials worked through the night to rescue hundreds more trapped inside.In Pakistan, its National Disaster Management Agency said flooding had affected more than 800,000 people in 2,275 villages, in a statement released on Monday. 139 people have died in floods across Pakistan since July 24.In Bangladesh, reports state that 28 people have died due to storm-related causes.While 23 people have been killed in northern Vietnam, floodwaters reportedly have also submerged several coalmines, creating fear that the contaminated runoff could reach and pollute La Hong Bay, according to the New York Times.Landslides destroyed several villages in Nepal on July 30, leaving at least 30 people dead. About half the homes in the village of Lumle were buried or damaged.“I heard a big demonic sound, I thought it was an earthquake,” Kabi Ram B.K., a 64-year-old farmer, told Reuters. His daughter and granddaughter were killed when the landslide demolished their home.Photo credit: Ye Aung Thu/AFP/Getty Images read more

Food assistance needs in Ethiopia rising for 2010 UN relief wing reports

The worsening food security situation is attributed to poor rainfall last year, particularly during the February-May and June-October seasons, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported. According to the humanitarian requirements document for Ethiopia, launched yesterday in Addis Ababa, the total net emergency food requirement from January to December 2010 and non-food needs for the first six months of this year amounts to $286.4 million.The document – prepared by the Government and UN agencies working in the country – also stated that the net food requirement stands at 290,271 metric tons, estimated to cost around $231.3 million. In addition, $55.1 million is required to respond to non-food needs in the areas of health and nutrition, water and sanitation, agriculture and education.The food security situation in Ethiopia had already been weakened last year by poor rains in 2008 and the impact of the high food prices globally. 3 February 2010The number of people in Ethiopia who will need food assistance this year has risen to 5.2 million, an increase of several hundred thousand from estimates released just two months ago by United Nations relief agencies and the Horn of Africa nation’s Government. read more

CPP reform to help lift plans assets above 15 trillion by 2090

OTTAWA — The upcoming enrichment of the Canada Pension Plan will help fuel a 48-fold boost to the public fund’s assets over the long haul — to more than $15.8 trillion by 2090, according to federal calculations.In comparison, the public plan’s investment manager reported $326.5 billion in net assets at the end of the first quarter of 2017-18.Long-term projections on the evolution of the CPP’s post-reform assets were included in an internal briefing note prepared for federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau earlier this year. The memo referred to numbers published last October by the Office of the Chief Actuary.The figures accounted for the impact of a CPP deal reached last year between the federal government and the provinces. They agreed to changes that will increase Canadians’ retirement benefits through the public plan by raising contributions as of 2019.CPP reform was a key goal for Ottawa and provinces like Ontario as a way to provide more financial security for future generations of retirees.But it has also faced significant criticism. For example, advocates for small businesses have warned it will be devastating for employers and drive up costs in what they have described as a “payroll tax.”The increase also means the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, which manages the CPP contributions, will be responsible for far more money over the coming decades.Without the enhancement, the total CPP assets would have totalled $6.7 trillion in 2090, the projections said.“Additional CPP assets are projected to grow rapidly in the early years as a result of the high level of contributions compared to benefits paid, reaching $70 billion by 2025 and almost $1 trillion by 2045,” said the January briefing memo prepared for Morneau ahead of a scheduled meeting with CPPIB president and CEO Mark Machin.The projections predicted the assets in the enhanced CPP portion to surpass those collected under base CPP program by 2055.Machin has acknowledged CPPIB will have to adjust to its additional obligation of managing a much-larger envelope. The organization invests CPP assets not currently needed to pay pension, disability and survivor benefits.“With or without reform, the CPP fund is projected to grow significantly in the future, and we’re well-prepared to manage a larger fund,” Machin told MPs during his appearance at a parliamentary committee last November.“When we evaluate investment programs, new processes, and supporting technology, we always want to ensure that they can be scaled to take into account increased size. We are very confident that we’ll be ready to manage the additional funds.”Machin has also stressed the importance of the arms-length CPPIB’s independence from government influence when it comes to its decisions around investments. He’s called that separation from potential political pressure one of the secrets to its success.The briefing note to Morneau outlined several expected areas of focus for his meeting with Machin, including discussion about the Liberal government’s proposed infrastructure bank.The government’s $35-billion infrastructure bank will seek to use public funds as leverage to attract billions more in private investment for major projects, such as new bridges, transit systems and rail lines. Ottawa has said it hopes the Canada Infrastructure Bank will entice institutional investors, such as pension plans, to participate.The partially redacted memo to Morneau noted that Machin has emphasized the importance of CPPIB’s independence when it comes to infrastructure investments.The document’s suggested speaking notes also featured an overview of the government’s infrastructure bank and a reference to CPPIB’s investment record when it came to infrastructure.The document, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, said CPPIB’s infrastructure assets accounted for 7.6 per cent of its global portfolio at the time and that it held only one infrastructure asset in Canada: a stake in the Toronto region’s 407 Express Toll Route.The memo also noted the CPPIB has looked outside Canada due to a lack of investment opportunities big enough — Machin has said it seeks projects larger than $500 million — and its reluctance to invest in brand-new projects that often carry more risk.When it comes to the projected size of the CPP’s assets in 2090, Jack Mintz, a tax-policy expert from the University of Calgary, said expected population increases and inflation should be taken into consideration.He added that CPP reform will lift retirement benefits, but it will still be quite small when compared to Canadians’ total savings.“It’s an increase, but it’s not an overwhelming increase — it’s kind of advertised as a bigger change than it really was.” read more

East Timor independence in sight still much work to do Security Council

The United Nations must remain “fully engaged in the early difficult days after the Organization’s flag comes down,” Sergio Vieira de Mello said in his statement to the Council, which held a daylong open meeting on the situation in East Timor.In particular, Mr. Vieira de Mello noted that the mission still needed to consolidate a secure and stable environment and to steer East Timor through successful, peaceful elections. UNTAET also had to set the basis for managing public finances and making policy and to establish the framework for an effective government administration.The head of the UN mission also addressed the plan, outlined in Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s recent report on East Timor, to scale down the UN military presence if stable conditions continue. By October, Mr. Vieira de Mello said, the mission will present plans for a smaller mission, which should be funded from assessed contributions.The interface between the United Nations and East Timor should not be allowed to continue for longer than was absolutely necessary to meet the benchmarks for East Timor’s independence, Mr. Vieira de Mello said. However, “we have been directed to do a job and that job is not yet complete. To equate the political transition, which is now so close to completion, with the establishment of an effective administration for East Timor, is quite simply wrong,” he said.As for the 30 August elections for a Constituent Assembly, Mr. Vieira de Mello stressed that the UN and East Timor’s leadership have made it “absolutely clear” that politically motivated violence would not be tolerated. To reinforce this point, he said, 14 of the 16 political parties have signed a unity pact “to demonstrate unequivocally their commitment to peaceful, non-violent and mature democratic competition.”East Timor’s Cabinet Member for Foreign Affairs, José Ramos-Horta also addressed the Council during its meeting, and more than 20 countries took the floor to lend their support to the UN’s efforts in East Timor. Several speakers described the situation in the territory as tentative and echoed Mr. Vieira de Mello’s call for a “cautious rightsizing” of the international presence. read more

Yemen UN relief agencies rush assessment teams supplies to crisistorn country

Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, said today OCHA announced plans are also underway for surgical teams to sail from Djibouti to Aden as soon as possible. “In the last 24 hours, about 12 metric tonnes of medical supplies have arrived in Aden from Al Hudaydah, and distributed to health centres and hospitals,” he said, adding that medical assistance has also been delivered in Sa’ada. Monthly food supplies have been distributed to more than 300 displaced families in Hajjah. OCHA reports that some 159 stranded Ethiopian migrants have returned home from Djibouti, including 131 people who had been stranded en route to Yemen, and 28 who were evacuated from Yemen by sea.Meanwhile in Geneva, Christophe Boulierac, for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), said with conflict escalating in many parts of Yemen, children continue to be killed, injured, displaced and put at increasing risk from disease. He emphasized that those children should be immediately afforded special respect and protection by all parties to the conflict, in line with international humanitarian law. He said that wherever security conditions permitted, UNICEF teams were working with partners to provide families with safe water and essential health services. The agency is providing fuel for the running of water supply pumping in three cities in the south, including Aden, where water systems had been repeatedly damaged in the fighting. UNICEF is providing diesel to power generators to keep vaccine stores safe. Supplies prepositioned by the children’s organization in various cities are being put to use and supplies of therapeutic food for young children and oral rehydration salts – a simple but highly effective treatment for diarrheal disease – were being procured.“The conflict is exacerbating the already precarious situation for children in one of the region’s poorest countries, with much of the country prone to food insecurity and with severe acute malnutrition widespread among young children, and with an increasing number for violations of child’s rights these last years,” said Mr. Boulierac, reiterating UNICEF’s warning that in the coming weeks, the discontinuation of basic health services and the deteriorating water and sanitation situation would lead to an increase in health needs, especially among women and children.The situation in Yemen has been rapidly deteriorating since the country formed a new Government in November 2014 aimed at ending a period of political turbulence and bringing about a full transition towards democracy. The country continued to be plagued by violence and political demonstrations despite UN efforts to bring about a peaceful political resolution. read more

Cabines à UV Quels sont les risques de développer un cancer de

first_imgCabines à UV : Quels sont les risques de développer un cancer de la peau ?Une étude publiée par le British Medical Journal révèle un risque alarmant lié à l’usage des cabines à UV. Celles-ci seraient en effet responsable de 800 morts par an en Europe. Gare aux bronzages artificiels ! Alors que les spécialistes avaient déjà déclenché l’alerte lors de la Journée nationale de prévention et de dépistage des cancers de la peau, c’est une nouvelle préoccupante que viennent de révéler des chercheurs de l’International prevention research institute (Ipri) de Lyon et de l’European institute of oncology (IEO) de Milan. En effet, ceux-ci ont récemment quantifié les risques liés à l’usage des cabines à UV. Leurs résultats, parus dans le British Medical Journal, indiquent que sur 64.000 cas de mélanome cutané répertoriés dans 18 pays européens, 5,4% sont dus à l’utilisation des appareils à bronzer.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Pour en arriver à une telle conclusion, les chercheurs ont réalisé une “méta-analyse” basée sur 27 études différentes. Le bilan tiré au regard de ce panel de travaux de recherche est ainsi plutôt alarmant. “Le risque de mélanome cutané est accru d’environ 20% pour ceux qui ont utilisé au moins une fois les cabines à UV” assurent les scientifiques. Un risque par ailleurs “doublé” si l’usage des appareils s’est fait avant l’âge de 35 ans.Les chercheurs espèrent que cette étude puissent conduire à “des actions plus fermes” en terme de “prévention des effets néfastes associés aux cabines à UV”. “Si l’usage des cabines à bronzage par les adolescents et les jeunes adultes ne diminue pas substantiellement à court terme, des actions plus radicales devront être envisagées” écrivent les auteurs en se référant par exemple à l’interdiction des cabines à usage public décidée par le Brésil en novembre 2009. Actuellement, l’OMS recommande de restreindre l’usage des cabines et d’interdire la pratique de centres de bronzage qui ne sont pas contrôlés en particulier pour les mineurs. Chaque année en France, 19 à 76 décès par mélanome cutané, sont lié au lampes à UV, selon le Bulletin épidémiologique hebdomadaire publiée en mai. La situation préoccupante des cabines à UV a d’ailleurs amené le gouvernement à annoncer un futur durcissement des réglementations au printemps.

Man appears in court for alleged threats to kill sheriff

first_imgA man accused of threatening to kill Clark County Sheriff Chuck Atkins appeared Friday in court, where he explained that he “would never hurt the sheriff” but wants to warn him about weapons of mass destruction.David E. Lucito, 34, no address provided, made an initial appearance in Superior Court on suspicion of harassment-death threats and cyberstalking.Lucito was wheeled into the courtroom in a restraint chair. “It’s insulting to me I would be brought here on an SOS call,” Lucito yelled, adding that he’s “not crazy.” He said there are weapons of mass destruction in the area and that the U.S. Army and National Guard need to respond. He claimed he’s been repeatedly trying to get Atkins’ attention on the matter but that the sheriff keeps snubbing him.When Senior Deputy Prosecutor James Smith asked that Lucito be held on $150,000 bail, Lucito screamed at him, “You’re a monster, dude!”Defense attorney Gregg Schile said he would defer on bail, prompting Lucito to call him, “not my attorney,” and when Judge John Fairgrieve granted the prosecutor’s request, Lucito yelled, “jerk!”Since May, law enforcement has been investigating reported threats Lucito made against Atkins through email and social media. Lucito was arrested by Vancouver police May 30 at Motel 6 for trespassing. He was arrested again June 22 by Vancouver police on suspicion of second-degree burglary after breaking into and vandalizing a business, according to court documents.While in custody, Lucito was given an evaluation and deemed competent to stand trial. He later pleaded guilty and was given credit for 33 days in custody. The remainder of his one-year sentence was suspended for a year, and he was released July 26, court records state.last_img read more

Soybean Farmers Anticipate DOE Decision on Biodiesel

first_imgImproved air quality and reduced dependence on foreign oil are two key benefits that hinge on a decision by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) regarding changes to the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPACT) as proposed by the American Soybean Association (ASA) and the National Biodiesel Board (NBB). ASA and NBB are urging DOE to amend the regulations for alternative fuels and alternative fueled vehicles (AFVs) to include B20, a blend of 20 percent biodiesel/80 percent petroleum diesel, as an approved EPACT alternative fuel. Biodiesel is made from oilseed crops, such as soybeans, a renewable and stable agricultural product. ASA First Vice President Mike Yost, a soybean producer from Murdock, Minnesota, said, “It’s time for DOE to make a decision. They have been provided with all the scientific, legal and technical information they requested, and now its purely a matter of policy and politics.”Yost, who chairs the Association’s Public Affairs Committee, said, “B20 has great potential to help reduce vehicle emissions and our dependence on foreign oil. B20 gives fleet managers more choices and more opportunities to comply with EPACT goals.” Under EPACT, by the year 2001, 75 percent of all affected Federal and state government vehicle purchases, and 90 percent of all affected vehicle purchases by private alternative fuel suppliers must be ATVs. These requirements begin in 1997 and will affect centrally fueled fleets with 20 or more light-duty vehicles (less than 8,500 pounds) that operate in major urban areas. Since 1991, biodiesel demonstration projects with both public and private transportation authorities in numerous cities have indicated a market preference for B20 over other biodiesel blends.”Soybeans in biodiesel represent a renewable fuel source that is better for the environment. Biodiesel production can be added to existing soybean crushing facilities, adding jobs and other economic benefits from processing locally grown agricultural products,” Yost said. “Millions of gallons of imported petroleum can be displaced with biodiesel each year, adding substantially to this country’s energy security and providing substantial environmental benefits.” B20 reduces both particulate emissions and greenhouse gas emissions.”In addition to newly processed soybean oil, biodiesel processors could use soybean oil recycled from industrial cooking oil users such as restaurants and food manufacturers. This also benefits landfills and waste water treatment systems because there will be a market and a system in place to recycle used cooking oil,” Yost added. Soybeans represent 82 percent of U.S. fats and oils edible consumption.DOE representatives said they would present an answer to the B20 petition as soon as possible following the September 15, 1997, deadline for public comments. The DOE acknowledged the biodiesel industry deserves a clear and forthright answer to the petition.Before B20 can be included as an EPACT alternative fuel, DOE must amend its current regulations through a rulemaking process in order to formally collect information on B20 and render an informed decision. Once all the information on the benefits of B20 is placed in the public record, then the Secretary of Energy can decide to include B20 as an EPACT alternative fuel.”We still have a way to go before this can benefit farmers and the American public, but this is the critical step,” Yost added. “Our proposal will not create any new government spending or tax breaks or subsidies, and it will not require anyone to use B20. The only direct impact is to give affected fleet managers who must comply with existing provisions and regulations of EPACT more choices and greater opportunity to use B20 blended fuels as a way to meet those requirements.”64.2 million acres of soybeans were planted in 1996, accounting for 24% of all U.S. crop acres planted. From this was harvested 2,382 million bushels of soybeans that resulted in a surplus of about 950 million pounds of soybean oil, part of which could have been processed into biodiesel. With average annual soybean oil production exceeding domestic demand by 6 percent, the sale of 30 million gallons of biodiesel would utilize 219 million pounds of surplus soybean oil, or enough B20 fuel to supply about 10 percent of the vehicles subject to EPACT. For the U.S. soybean farmer this would support the price of soybeans by an estimated 11 cents per bushel.last_img read more

Yellen indicates Fed rate hike by yearend

first_img The end of 2015 could finally see a rate hike from the US Federal Reserve, almost nine years after it signalled a regime of low rates in order to help global growth. The Feds chair Janet Yellen on Thursday 24 September, said she was confident of a US recovery amid a sluggish global economy and reiterated plans to withdraw the central banks extraordinary stimulus by year-end as long as inflation was stable and employment levels remained strong.In a speech at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Yellen said, It will be appropriate to raise the target range of the federal funds rate sometime later this year and to continue boosting short-term rates at a gradual pace. She emphasised the gradual pace, saying an abrupt tightening would risk disrupting financial markets and perhaps even inadvertently push economies into recession. However, she cautioned that Fed strategy would have to change if there were economic surprises.According to Yellen, the recent inflationary weakness was transitory and much of it was due to special factors such as a strong dollar and low oil prices, which are likely to fade, allowing US inflation to rise to the 2% target set by the Fed over the next few years. The Fed chair also cautioned that inflation may rise more slowly or rapidly than anticipated. Should such a development occur, we would need to adjust the stance of policy in response, she said.Two crucial meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) are scheduled for 27-28 October and 15-16 December. Most foresee a rate hike will come in December, given October is too early.In its latest policy review meet on 17 September where the Fed held rates, Yellen attributed the decision to a volatile global economy spearheaded by the China slump. The message sent out seemed hawkish to many investors who deemed a rate hike to be distant, probably until March 2016. To assuage these fears Yellen said it was best not to delay too long and adjust policy in the light of incoming data.Yellen fumbled over the last part of her speech and said she felt light-headed and dehydrated. She received immediate medical attention, and central bank officials later said she was fine and back on schedule. Closelast_img read more

Unconventional quantum systems may lead to novel optical devices

first_img Journal information: Nature Physics © 2017 Phys.org Blind quantum computing for everyone Citation: Unconventional quantum systems may lead to novel optical devices (2017, August 22) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-08-unconventional-quantum-optical-devices.html The physicists, led by Peng Xue at Southeast University in Nanjing, have published a paper on the PT-symmetric quantum walks in a recent issue of Nature Physics.”We present an experimental work tying together three concepts—-non-unitary quantum walks at a single-photon level, PT symmetry, and topological edge states originating from Floquet topological phases,” Xue told Phys.org. “Each of these three concepts has attracted much attention in the past years in the scientific community. The interplay of these elements in our experimental system will no doubt give rise to rich physics.”The new results build on discoveries made over the past 20 years regarding a new class of quantum systems called non-Hermitian Hamiltonians that deviate from conventional quantum systems. In general, the Hamiltonian of a quantum system, which is a measure of its total energy, must have eigenvalues that are real rather than complex numbers, where the eigenvalues are associated with the physical properties of the quantum system. For many decades, it was thought that Hamiltonians must be mathematically described using Hermitian operators, since Hermitians always have real eigenvalues.Although being Hermitian is sufficient for a Hamiltonian to have real eigenvalues, in 1998 physicists discovered that Hamiltonians can be non-Hermitian and still have real eigenvalues, as long as they obey PT symmetry. This discovery opened up a whole new class of quantum systems for physicists to explore. Currently, the study of PT-symmetric non-Hermitian systems is an area of active research that holds promise for a variety of applications, particularly in the field of optics.The new study contributes to this research by demonstrating single-photon PT-symmetric quantum walks. Previously, physicists have theoretically investigated these systems, but the new study marks the first experimental demonstration due to the challenges involved in amplifying single photons. “A PT-symmetric quantum walk is a non-unitary extension of the unitary quantum walk, which is in turn a quantum mechanical version of the classical random walk,” Xue explained. “Just as PT-symmetric non-Hermitian Hamiltonians broaden the horizon of conventional quantum mechanics, a PT-symmetric quantum walk represents a new kind of quantum walk with unique features that are quite different from those of a unitary quantum walk.”This demonstration, in turn, led the researchers to experimentally demonstrate exotic properties called Floquet topological properties in PT-symmetric quantum walks for the first time. The scientists observed that Floquet topological edge states arise between regions with different bulk topological properties, suggesting that these systems contain intriguing quantum phenomena awaiting further exploration. Floquet topological properties are characterized by a pair of topological numbers, and controlling these properties may lead to the development of new quantum optical devices. “I think our work may lead to a new generation of synthetic PT-symmetric systems,” Xue said. “In PT-symmetric classical systems, recent progress may lead to applications in optical switching, modulation, sensors, wireless power transfer, and so on. While our experiment demonstrates Floquet topological states (a special topological matter with time-periodic drives) driven by PT-symmetric quantum dynamics, it provides a new platform where the interplay of PT-symmetric quantum dynamics and topological properties not only offer a quantum mechanical version of PT-symmetric systems, but may also lead to potential applications in quantum information, quantum computation, and quantum sensing.” Explore furthercenter_img (Phys.org)—Physicists have experimentally demonstrated an optical system based on an unconventional class of quantum mechanical systems that could lead to the development of new quantum optical devices. The system is called a “PT-symmetric quantum walk,” since it consists of single photons that occupy a superposition of states, called quantum walks, that obey parity-time (PT) symmetry—the property in which a system’s coordinates in space and time can have their signs reversed without inherently changing the system.
