Greens call for ban on foreign oil imports using Alberta oil instead

Posted on by

first_imgOTTAWA — Green party Leader Elizabeth May says saving the world from climate change requires Canada to get off oil before the middle of the century.In the meantime, she wants Canada off foreign oil as soon as possible.The promise to make Canada energy independent is — perhaps unexpectedly — in line with the economic and climate strategy of Conservative leader Andrew Scheer.Scheer’s plan calls for Canada to import no foreign oil by 2030, partly by planning an energy corridor across Canada that could simplify the construction of pipelines able to move Alberta oil to any coast. He sees it as a way to find additional domestic markets for Canada’s oilsands, in a bid to increase their production.May’s plan, to “turn off the taps to oil imports” is only a stop-gap measure to keep foreign oil out until Canada can break its oil habit altogether.By 2050, May wants bitumen to be used in Canada only by the petrochemical industry for plastics, rubber, paint, and other such products.“As long as we are using fossil fuels we should be using our fossil fuels,” said May.May’s climate plan is likely to get more scrutiny than its predecessors in past elections.The Liberals and NDP already proved they are paying close attention to the rising threat of Green support, with both pushing similar motions to declare climate change an emergency in the House of Commons earlier this month. Both motions were tabled less than a week after the Greens elected a second MP in a Vancouver Island byelection, and not long after a provincial wing of the party formed the official opposition in Prince Edward Island.May said she’s perfectly fine with Green popularity pushing other parties to raise their games on climate. While both the Liberals and NDP claimed their motions had been in the works before the byelection result, May said there is no doubt in her mind that Paul Manly’s winning and the NDP and Liberals finishing distantly third and fourth, “had almost everything to do with” the motions.The NDP motion failed because it called for Canada to drop plans to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline, a pipeline May also opposes. The Liberal motion hasn’t yet gone to a vote.The Green climate plan also calls for Canada to double its cuts to greenhouse-gas emissions by 2030 and get emissions to zero by 2050. That plan includes no longer selling combustion-engine cars after 2030 and replacing all existing combustion-engine vehicles by 2040.Canada imports about a million barrels of oil a day and produces four times that much. In 2017, Canada produced 4.2 million barrels of oil, and exported 3.3 million of those. Domestic refineries handled 1.8 million barrels.Canada’s oil producers already pump enough product to meet domestic demand but there are two problems: there is no pipeline from the oil-rich west to refineries in the east, and even if there were, those refineries aren’t equipped to handle the heavier bitumen that is the Alberta oilsands’ trademark.For Canadian refineries in the east, bitumen from the oilsands must be upgraded to synthetic crude. May’s plan is to invest in upgraders to do it.She acknowledges weaning Canada off foreign oil won’t happen overnight, given existing contracts Canadian refineries have and figuring out how to build the upgraders and then ship the product.Privately, Liberal government critics suggest there is no way to have Canada’s east coast use Canadian oil without building a new pipeline to get the products there. May does not support a new pipeline anywhere, and argues the raw bitumen could be transferred by rail as long as Canada invests more in its rail services.The proposed Energy East pipeline to carry diluted bitumen to the east coast fell apart in 2017 amid significant opposition in Quebec, opposition that continues under the new Coalition Avenir Quebec government.Scheer’s plan is to establish an energy corridor that would allow an Energy East-like pipeline to proceed alongside interprovincial electricity grids, with only one right-of-way required.May said the Greens are the “only party that have a plan that allows human civilization to survive.”“It’s not a Canadian lifestyle choice,” she said. “All of humanity is at risk.”Mia Rabson, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Trudeau to visit Trump next week to talk trade, China

Posted on by

TORONTO — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will travel to Washington next week to meet with President Donald Trump to discuss the ratification of the new North American trade agreement and China’s detention of two Canadians.Trudeau’s office said he will visit next Thursday. Trump and Trudeau are trying to build momentum to pass the new trade deal that also includes Mexico.Relations have improved since a low last summer when the U.S. president called Trudeau “weak” and “dishonest.” Trump was furious after Trudeau said at a Group of Seven summit that he wouldn’t let Canada be pushed around in trade relations with the U.S.The new Mexico-U.S.-Canada Agreement, signed in November by the leaders of the three nations, is meant to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. The pact needs approval from lawmakers in each country. Democrats in Washington now want stronger enforcement of labour standards and they oppose a provision that protects pharmaceutical companies from competition.Trump almost derailed the agreement himself after threatening a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports to pressure that country to do more to crack down on Central American migrants trying to cross into the U.S.Trudeau’s office said Thursday that during his meeting with Trump the prime minister will also bring up plight of two Canadians held in China. Beijing detained ex-diplomat Michael Kovrig and entrepreneur Michael Spavor on Dec. 10 in an apparent attempt to pressure Canada to release Meng Wanzhou, a top executive at Chinese tech giant Huawei. She was arrested Dec. 1 at the request of U.S. authorities who want her to face fraud charges in the U.S.Trump is expected to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit this month in Japan.Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland rejected the purported view of former Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chretien, reported in the Globe and Mail citing anonymous sources, that Canada should cancel the extradition request in order to improve relations with China and win the release of the Canadians.Freeland said she respects Chretien but said either Canada is either a rule of law country or is not.“It would be a very dangerous precedent indeed for Canada to alter its behaviour when it comes to honouring an extradition treaty in response to external pressure,” Freeland said. “By acting in a single case we could actually make Canadians less safe around the world.”Rob Gillies, The Associated Press read more

Help prevent children from becoming victims in the first place implores Guterres

Posted on by

The new global campaign aims to “raise worldwide awareness, assist children in need and prevent them from becoming victims in the first place”, according to Mr. Guterres.  “Crucially, this initiative will offer children an opportunity to raise their voices”, he stressed, inviting everyone to ensure it “reaches all corners of the world so no child ever fears being left behind again”. Protecting ‘used and abused’ children  Chairing the launch event, Virginia Gamba, the UN Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, said that the campaign would better protect children “who have been used and abused by – in and for – armed conflict around the globe”.She maintained that there was an “urgent need” to raise awareness about what she terms the six grave violations, namely the killing and maiming of children; recruitment or use of children as soldiers; sexual violence against children; abduction of children; and attacks against schools or hospitals. “We need it to highlight the impact of conflict on children” she stressed, along with putting “a strong emphasis on tangible actions to end and prevent them”.  While noting the “important progress” achieved so far, Ms. Gamba argued that “our work is far from over”.  “Consensus, tools will not bring the change we need if they are not followed by tangible actions for the children who need it the most”, said the Special Representative.  She highlighted some of the actions that the campaign would push for, including the Paris Principles, the Safe Schools Declaration and the more recent Vancouver Principles. “We can join forces to advocate for these endorsements”, she said, “because norms matter” and the agreements “bring us one step closer” to implementation where “they can have a real impact in children’s lives”.  Ms. Gamba recalled that the international community “painstakingly developed” the Action Plan through the Security Council and urged all signatories to fully implement it “with a clear focus on ending violations and preventing their reoccurrence”. “We cannot expect that children who have faced the worst of humanity will be able to recover on their own”, she asserted, flagging the Global Coalition for Reintegration, which aims to “improve the availability and quality of these essential services”. In conclusion, she announced upcoming campaign events, in Brussels, Sudan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Mali, among others, encouraging everyone to “join forces and ACT to Better Protect Children Affected by Armed Conflict”. Children exposed For her part, Bintou Keita, the Assistant Secretary-General for Africa in the Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, said that she had seen children, “the lifeblood and our future”, exposed to “too many repulsive acts of violence for too long”. Ms. Keita cited children killed in conflict-prone areas of Afghanistan, Darfur, Iraq, Myanmar, the Philippines, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, “to name a few”, saying that they also “comprise 69 per cent of civilian casualties from landmines and explosive remnants of war”.  “Providing protection to children affected by armed conflict is not only a legal responsibility but also a moral obligation” she declared.  Calling the ACT campaign of “vital importance to keep the eyes of the world focused” on children’s suffering, UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix lamented that “armed groups are proliferating and grave child rights violations are increasing”. He said that the UN peacekeeping missions in Mali, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, Sudan and South Sudan, all have “child-specific mandates”, assuring the UN’s “commitment to this cause”. “Should a child survive and be fortunate enough to be released to a reintegration programme, they still have only a slim chance of recovery”, he said in remarks read out at a launch event in UN Headquarters, by staff member Sharon Riggle. The UN chief pointed out that a lack of resources and a failure to provide long-term assistance to victims and their communities “have made many children open to a second victimization, either through the stigmas they carry or through inadequate education and growth opportunities, leaving them trapped in a cycle of violence and despair”.  Virginia Gamba: when people ask why we need a campaign to raise awareness about the core of our mandate – the 6 grave violations, I have a simple answer: we desperately need it pic.twitter.com/tH9HA2ahsB— ChildrenArmdConflict (@childreninwar) April 2, 2019 read more

El Cielo de Canarias timelapse is a must see

Posted on by

first_imgWe admit, we do tend to geek out over impressively done time-lapses here at Geek.com, and we have found another one to add to our “Time-Lapses to Ogle Over” collection. Photographer and astrophotographer Daniel Lopez shot scenes from the island of Tenerife for over a year to capture some of the most beautiful and jaw-dropping shots of clouds, stars, water, and mountains in a wide spectrum of color.More than 2,000 meters above sea level, Lopez shot “El Cielo de Canarias/Canary Sky” at the picturesque location of Tenerife. The landscape he captured may be familiar to those of you who’ve seen Terje Sorgjerd’s”The Mountain” time-lapse that we covered a few weeks ago. Both videos were shot in Teide National Park in Tenerife, the largest and most populous of the seven Canary Islands where Lopez lives. The video is the first in a series from Lopez in which he’ll try to capture the beauty of each island. Tenerife is a World Heritage Site and is home to the third largest volcano in the world, El Teide.AdChoices广告Part of the time-lapse shows what Lopez calls “the ‘hat’ in the Teide,” which is a formation of clouds covering the peak of the volcano. The video shows footage of clouds pouring over trees and mountains, taking on the form of water, waves, and waterfalls as they roll across the sky. A large pool of water in the plain of Ucanca reflects lenticular clouds, which you’ll recognize as the lens-shaped, spaceship-looking clouds pictured below. Clouds undulate like the surface of a waterbed at the 3-minute mark. And yes, there’s even a double rainbow in the video.Lopez used a dolly in which he designed and built himself. The dolly has both vertical and horizontal rails, and spindles with both horizontal and vertical movements. Lopez used high dynamic range imaging, better known as HDR, which allows for a larger dynamic range of brightness between the lightest and darkest spots of an image. The result can be seen in the faint starlight shots and the direct shots of the sun. He compiled all the photos and produced the final video in Photoshop CS4.via Vimeo and El Cielo de Canariaslast_img read more

Antiracism bill causes rift in government

Posted on by

first_imgAn anti-racism bill aimed at reining in the ultra-right Golden Dawn party by imposing tougher penalties on the incitement of racist violence appeared to have caused a major rift within the government. Shortly after Justice Ministry sources indicated that the bill had been submitted in Parliament for debate, the government’s general secretary, Panayiotis Baltakos, refuted those reports, saying that the legislation would be examined by his office “to check for legal or other imperfections” before it is submitted to the House. In an apparent bid to gloss over any suggestions of an internal rift in the government, the ministry issued another statement immediately after that by Baltakos, noting that the “outline” of the bill had been sent to the latter’s office “as procedure demands” and that a version would be uploaded onto the Internet for public discussion before being submitted to the State Audit Council and then Parliament. Aides close to Prime Minister Antonis Samaras continued to express serious reservations about the content of the bill as it stands, fearing that it could fuel reactions from across the political spectrum and from the Orthodox Church and could end up boosting Golden Dawn by making the party appear to be persecuted rather rather than reining it in. In its current form, the bill foresees tougher penalties for those who “incite or provoke violence or hatred against an individual or group of individuals” and fines of up 200,000 euros for media companies deemed to have incited hatred or violence. A smaller rift emerged within the government over a legislative amendment relating to licenses for street market vendors, with socialist PASOK voting against the reform.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Le séisme aux EtatsUnis a déplacé des conteneurs de déchets radioactifs

Posted on by

first_imgLe séisme aux Etats-Unis a déplacé des conteneurs de déchets radioactifs Le séisme survenu le 23 août dernier aux Etats-Unis aurait déplacé plusieurs conteneurs en béton utilisés pour le stockage de déchets radioactifs dans une centrale de Virginie. La société Dominion qui exploite l’installation a expliqué que les conteneurs n’avaient pas été abîmés.Le 23 août dernier, la côte Est des Etats-Unis et en particulier l’Etat de Virginie a été frappé par un séisme rarissime de magnitude 5,8, ressenti entre autres à New York et Washington. Si la secousse a fait trembler de nombreux immeubles, peu de dégâts ont été recensés par les autorités. Toutefois, le lendemain, la société Dominion qui exploite l’une des centrales nucléaires de Virginie a annoncé que le phénomène avait tout de même provoqué l’arrêt automatique de son installation, sans pour autant l’endommager. Mais jeudi, c’est une autre révélation qu’a faite l’exploitant américain. Outre l’arrêt de la centrale, la secousse a également déplacé des conteneurs en béton recelant des déchets radioactifs et ce, de plusieurs centimètres. “27 des 53 conteneurs de déchets de la centrale North Anna ont été déplacés par les vibrations du séisme, dont l’épicentre se trouvait à proximité. Les déplacements de ces conteneurs de 115 tonnes chacun ont été de 2,5 à 11,4 centimètres”, a expliqué à l’AFP Richard Zuercher, porte-parole de la société Dominion, gérant la centrale de North Anna située à quelque 150 kilomètres de Washington. Néanmoins, selon les observations de leurs techniciens, cet incident n’aurait aucunement endommagé les conteneurs.”Nous les avons testés et il n’y a aucune trace de fuite d’hélium, le gaz dont ils sont remplis. Ces conteneurs, avec des parois de 25 cm d’épaisseur, sont sûrs et intacts”, a ajouté le porte-parole qui a également précisé que ces conteneurs, remplis de bioxyde d’uranium épuisé, sont conçus pour ne pas tomber et sont très bien restés debout lors du séisme. Au final, aucun problème n’aurait donc été enregistré concernant la sécurité nucléaire : “tous les systèmes, tous les composants et les valves sont en parfait état”, a assuré Richard Zuercher.Une résistance jusqu’à une magnitude de 6,2 À lire aussiQuand des Américains assistent à la naissance d’un bébé phoque sur une plageDe même, contrairement à ce que la société Dominion avait dans un premier temps déclaré à la Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), la centrale n’a pas excédé les limites pour lesquelles elle est construite lors du séisme, relaye l’AFP. Construite selon certaines normes, l’installation de North Anna pourrait résister à un séisme de magnitude 6,2.”Nous avions tout d’abord dit à la NRC que nous avions peut-être excédé ces limites mais des études supplémentaires ont montré que ce n’était pas le cas”, a déclaré Richard Zuercher cité par l’AFP.

Météorite dans lOural des fragments ont été retrouvés

Posted on by

first_imgMétéorite dans l’Oural : des fragments ont été retrouvés Lundi, des scientifiques ont affirmé avoir déniché des fragments de la météorite qui s’est désintégré vendredi matin dans le ciel de l’Oural, faisant plus de 1.000 blessés dont 40 sont toujours hospitalisés.Va t-on bientôt en savoir plus sur la mystérieuse météorite qui a fait tant de dégâts dans l’Oural vendredi ? Plus de deux jours après que cet objet s’est désintégré dans le ciel, causant de violentes explosions et d’importants dégâts, la ville de Tcheliabinsk se remet peu à peu des émotions. Toutefois, elle ne désespère pas de percer les détails de ce qui s’est réellement passé. Ce week-end, les autorités ont ainsi dépêché des équipes sur place dans le but de trouver des traces du fameux objet. Mais le ministère des Situations d’urgence a annoncé dimanche qu’il cessait ses recherches après que des plongeurs ont sondé, en vain, les fonds du lac Tchebarkoul, qui serait le lieu de chute d’un des fragments de la météorite. C’était sans compter l’intervention de scientifiques de l’université de l’Oural qui ont également décidé de se rendre sur place et ont abouti, eux, à des résultats bien plus fructueux. Lundi, ils ont affirmé qu’ils avaient retrouvé une cinquantaine de fragments près du fameux lac. Une météorite de type chondrite ? “Nous confirmons que les particules d’une substance trouvée par notre expédition près du lac Tchebarkoul ont la composition d’une météorite”, a indiqué Viktor Grokhovski, membre de l’Académie russe des sciences, à l’agence Ria Novosti. Une information confirmée par l’université qui a ajouté dans un communiqué : “Les membres de l’expédition ont envoyé à Ekaterinbourg les débris qu’ils ont trouvés”. Elle a également publié sur son site cette photographie d’une personne tenant une toute petite pierre noire entre ses doigts.Les scientifiques ont précisé que les petits fragments ayant été retrouvés près du lac, ceux-ci ne désespéraient pas de trouver de plus gros morceaux de la météorite. “Puisqu’on a retrouvé des débris (…), cela signifie que le principal fragment est dans le lac”, a ainsi estimé M. Grokhovski, cité par l’agence Interfax. Les plongeurs du ministère des Situations d’urgence avaient dès samedi sondé les fonds du lac Tchebarkoul, dont la surface glacée avait été percée d’un orifice de six mètres de diamètre.Mais le fond du lac étant couvert d’une couche de 1,5 mètre de vase, l’absence de résultats a conduit le ministère à interrompre les recherches. L’annonce des scientifiques serait cependant en mesure de les relancer. D’ailleurs, ces derniers ont d’ores et déjà penser à baptiser l’objet “météorite de Tchebarkoul”. Ils espèrent désormais en apprendre plus sur sa nature, bien qu’ils semblent déjà avoir une petite idée. “Selon le chef de l’expédition, Viktor Grokhovski, cette météorite relève de la classe des chondrites”, un type de météorite pierreux, explique l’université, qui précise que les fragments retrouvés étaient composés de 10% de fer. Plus de 1.200 blessés dont une quarantaine encore à l’hôpital Ajouté à cela, ils vont également tenter de comprendre comment la chute de la météorite a pu avoir des conséquences aussi graves. Selon le dernier bilan, fourni par le gouverneur de la région de Tcheliabinsk, 1.240 personnes, dont 299 enfants, ont été blessées, pour la plupart légèrement, par ce phénomène spectaculaire et sans précédent, rapporte l’AFP. De son côté, le ministère de la Santé a fait état lundi de 1491 blessés, dont 311 enfants, dans un communiqué. Selon cette source, 46 personnes sont encore hospitalisées, parmi lesquelles trois enfants et quelques unes encore dans un état grave.

Is mathematics an effective way to describe the world

Posted on by

first_imgMath has the illusion of being effective when we focus on the successful examples, Abbott argues. But there are many more cases where math is ineffective than where it is effective. Credit: Derek Abbott. ©2013 IEEE Explore further © 2013 Phys.org Citation: Is mathematics an effective way to describe the world? (2013, September 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-09-mathematics-effective-world.html Mathematics has been called the language of the universe. Scientists and engineers often speak of the elegance of mathematics when describing physical reality, citing examples such as π, E=mc2, and even something as simple as using abstract integers to count real-world objects. Yet while these examples demonstrate how useful math can be for us, does it mean that the physical world naturally follows the rules of mathematics as its “mother tongue,” and that this mathematics has its own existence that is out there waiting to be discovered? This point of view on the nature of the relationship between mathematics and the physical world is called Platonism, but not everyone agrees with it. Derek Abbott, Professor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at The University of Adelaide in Australia, has written a perspective piece to be published in the Proceedings of the IEEE in which he argues that mathematical Platonism is an inaccurate view of reality. Instead, he argues for the opposing viewpoint, the non-Platonist notion that mathematics is a product of the human imagination that we tailor to describe reality. This argument is not new. In fact, Abbott estimates (through his own experiences, in an admittedly non-scientific survey) that while 80% of mathematicians lean toward a Platonist view, engineers by and large are non-Platonist. Physicists tend to be “closeted non-Platonists,” he says, meaning they often appear Platonist in public. But when pressed in private, he says he can “often extract a non-Platonist confession.”So if mathematicians, engineers, and physicists can all manage to perform their work despite differences in opinion on this philosophical subject, why does the true nature of mathematics in its relation to the physical world really matter? The reason, Abbott says, is that because when you recognize that math is just a mental construct—just an approximation of reality that has its frailties and limitations and that will break down at some point because perfect mathematical forms do not exist in the physical universe—then you can see how ineffective math is. And that is Abbott’s main point (and most controversial one): that mathematics is not exceptionally good at describing reality, and definitely not the “miracle” that some scientists have marveled at. Einstein, a mathematical non-Platonist, was one scientist who marveled at the power of mathematics. He asked, “How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought which is independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality?” In 1959, the physicist and mathematician Eugene Wigner described this problem as “the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics.” In response, Abbott’s paper is called “The Reasonable Ineffectiveness of Mathematics.” Both viewpoints are based on the non-Platonist idea that math is a human invention. But whereas Wigner and Einstein might be considered mathematical optimists who noticed all the ways that mathematics closely describes reality, Abbott pessimistically points out that these mathematical models almost always fall short. What exactly does “effective mathematics” look like? Abbott explains that effective mathematics provides compact, idealized representations of the inherently noisy physical world.”Analytical mathematical expressions are a way making compact descriptions of our observations,” he told Phys.org. “As humans, we search for this ‘compression’ that math gives us because we have limited brain power. Maths is effective when it delivers simple, compact expressions that we can apply with regularity to many situations. It is ineffective when it fails to deliver that elegant compactness. It is that compactness that makes it useful/practical … if we can get that compression without sacrificing too much precision.”I argue that there are many more cases where math is ineffective (non-compact) than when it is effective (compact). Math only has the illusion of being effective when we focus on the successful examples. But our successful examples perhaps only apply to a tiny portion of all the possible questions we could ask about the universe.”Some of the arguments in Abbott’s paper are based on the ideas of the mathematician Richard W. Hamming, who in 1980 identified four reasons why mathematics should not be as effective as it seems. Although Hamming resigned himself to the idea that mathematics is unreasonably effective, Abbott shows that Hamming’s reasons actually support non-Platonism given a reduced level of mathematical effectiveness.Here are a few of Abbott’s reasons for why mathematics is reasonably ineffective, which are largely based on the non-Platonist viewpoint that math is a human invention:• Mathematics appears to be successful because we cherry-pick the problems for which we have found a way to apply mathematics. There have likely been millions of failed mathematical models, but nobody pays attention to them. (“A genius,” Abbott writes, “is merely one who has a great idea, but has the common sense to keep quiet about his other thousand insane thoughts.”)• Our application of mathematics changes at different scales. For example, in the 1970s when transistor lengths were on the order of micrometers, engineers could describe transistor behavior using elegant equations. Today’s submicrometer transistors involve complicated effects that the earlier models neglected, so engineers have turned to computer simulation software to model smaller transistors. A more effective formula would describe transistors at all scales, but such a compact formula does not exist.• Although our models appear to apply to all timescales, we perhaps create descriptions biased by the length of our human lifespans. For example, we see the Sun as an energy source for our planet, but if the human lifespan were as long as the universe, perhaps the Sun would appear to be a short-lived fluctuation that rapidly brings our planet into thermal equilibrium with itself as it “blasts” into a red giant. From this perspective, the Earth is not extracting useful net energy from the Sun.• Even counting has its limits. When counting bananas, for example, at some point the number of bananas will be so large that the gravitational pull of all the bananas draws them into a black hole. At some point, we can no longer rely on numbers to count.• And what about the concept of integers in the first place? That is, where does one banana end and the next begin? While we think we know visually, we do not have a formal mathematical definition. To take this to its logical extreme, if humans were not solid but gaseous and lived in the clouds, counting discrete objects would not be so obvious. Thus axioms based on the notion of simple counting are not innate to our universe, but are a human construct. There is then no guarantee that the mathematical descriptions we create will be universally applicable.For Abbott, these points and many others that he makes in his paper show that mathematics is not a miraculous discovery that fits reality with incomprehensible regularity. In the end, mathematics is a human invention that is useful, limited, and works about as well as expected.For those who seek something more practical out of such a discussion, Abbott explains that this understanding can allow for greater freedom of thought. One example is an improvement of vector operations. The current method involves dot and cross products, “a rather clunky” tool that does not generalize to higher dimensions. Lately there has been a renewed interest in an alternative approach called geometric algebra, which overcomes many of the limitations of dot and cross products and can be extended to higher dimensions. Abbott is currently working on a tutorial paper on geometric algebra for electrical engineers to be published in the near future.

Afghan security issues weighed at NATO summit

Posted on by

first_img Top Stories SHRINKING AFGHAN SECURITY FORCEThe U.S.-led coalition helped train an Afghan security force that soon will be 352,000-strong. Currently, that force costs about $6 billion a year. But the force will shrink to around 230,000 a year or so after it takes on full security responsibilities at the end of 2014. That’s largely because funding comes from donor nations that are fighting their own economic woes and are losing political will to pay for the decade-long war.BANKROLLING THE AFGHAN FORCESThe smaller force will cost about $4.1 billion a year.
