Patna HC 11judge bench suspends single judges order critical of judiciary

first_imgPatna: In an unprecedented action, an 11-judge bench of the Patna High Court on Thursday “suspended” an order passed by a single judge which was critical of the judiciary.The bench, led by Chief Justice A P Sahi, held that the order passed Wednesday was an “attack on judicial hierarchy, judicial integrity and majesty of the court”, according to Advocate General of Bihar Lalit Kishor. “Justice Rakesh Kumar had, in his detailed order passed yesterday, expressed his concerns over alleged casteism and corruption in the high court and the entire judicial system. He had also made some adverse remarks against judges who have retired or passed away,” Kishor said here.

Justice Kumar had passed the order while taking suo motu cognisance of grant of bail to retired IAS officer K P Ramaiah by a vigilance court here, a year after he had turned down the anticipatory bail plea of the former bureaucrat, who is an accused in a corruption case. Earlier, a notice was published in the court’s registry on behalf of the Chief Justice stating “all the matters pending before Justice Rakesh Kumar, sitting singly including tied up/part heard or otherwise stand withdrawn with immediate effect”.last_img read more

Generalized Hardys paradox shows an even stronger conflict between quantum and classical

first_img Explore further In 1993, physicist Lucien Hardy proposed an experiment showing that there is a small probability (around 6-9%) of observing a particle and its antiparticle interacting with each other without annihilating—something that is impossible in classical physics. The way to explain this result is to require quantum theory to be nonlocal: that is, to allow for the existence of long-range quantum correlations, such as entanglement, so that particles can influence each other across long distances. More information: Shu-Han Jiang et al. “Generalized Hardy’s Paradox.” Physical Review Letters 120, 050403 (2018). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.050403, Also at arXiv:1709.09812 [quant-ph] This document is subject to copyright.

By building the most general framework for the n-particle Hardy’s paradox and Hardy’s inequality, the results of the new paper provide a stronger Hardy’s paradox, and can also detect more quantum entangled states. As the success probability for the three-qubit generalized Hardy’s paradox reaches 0.25, the researchers are very hopeful that it will be observed in future experiments. Credit: Jiang, et al. © 2018 American Physical Society So far, Hardy’s paradox has been experimentally demonstrated with two particles, and a few special cases with more than two particles have been proposed but not experimentally demonstrated. Now in a new paper published in Physical Review Letters, physicists have presented a generalized Hardy’s paradox that extends to any number of particles. Further, they show that any version of Hardy’s paradox that involves three or more particles conflicts with local (classical) theory even more strongly than any of the previous versions of the paradox do. To illustrate, the physicists proposed an experiment with three particles in which the probability of observing the paradoxical event reaches an estimated 25%.”In this paper, we show a family of generalized Hardy’s paradox to the most degree, in that by adjusting certain parameters they not only include previously known extensions as special cases, but also give sharper conflicts between quantum and classical theories in general,” coauthor Jing-Ling Chen at Nankai University and the National University of Singapore told Phys.org. “What’s more, based on the paradoxes, we are able to write down novel Bell’s inequalities, which enable us to detect more quantum entangled states.”As the physicists explain, Hardy’s paradox involves inequalities that correspond to the inequalities in Bell’s theorem—a theorem showing that quantum mechanics must violate either locality or realism. As previous research has shown, Hardy’s paradox can be interpreted in terms of inequalities by considering the probabilities of certain events occurring. Suppose that the probabilities that A < B, B < C, and C < D are all zero. In the classical world, it would then be impossible to have A < D. But in Hardy's paradox, A < D occurs with some nonzero probability, in contrast with classical predictions."Put simply, Hardy's paradox states that a classically impossible sequence of events from end to end—just imagine a snake devouring its tail—as it were, are nonvanishingly possible in the quantum region," Chen said. "This is really surprising."In the future, the physicists plan to further explore the connections between the generalized Hardy's paradox and Bell's inequalities. In regards to experiments, a group at the University of Science and Technology of China has begun to perform the photon-based experiment to verify the stronger Hardy's paradox.center_img Journal information: Physical Review Letters © 2018 Phys.org Citation: Generalized Hardy’s paradox shows an even stronger conflict between quantum and classical physics (2018, February 1) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-02-hardy-paradox-stronger-conflict-quantum.html Physicists resolve a paradox of quantum theorylast_img read more


TravelOnly toasts its top performers at gala event

first_img Monday, January 29, 2018 TravelOnly toasts its top performers at gala event Share The story of Global Medic and the obvious needs that it addressed resonated with those present and attending through social media. More than $35,000 was raised for ‘Travel Agents Care’, an initiative started by TravelOnly travel agent Karen Gill (PlanAVacation.ca). Supplier partner TravelBrands donated $5,000 and Nicole Francis (The Travel Boutique) donated $1,000.More news:  Honolulu authorities investigate arsons at 3 Waikiki hotels; no injuries reportedThe Travel Agents Care fundraising initiative came together last fall in the wake of the 2017 hurricane season. Gill along with TravelOnly agents Marie Odorizzi, Sharon Loppie and Pat Probert, having spent time in many of the Caribbean destinations impacted by the hurricanes, decided there was no question that they needed to act.At Saturday’s event, suppliers also took the stage to give brief updates on their products and to give awards to their top producers. They included AmaWaterways, The Barcelo Hotel Group, Collette Vacations, AMResorts, Israel Ministry of Tourism, Carnival, NCL, Air Canada Vacations, MSC Cruises, Globus, Perillo Tours, Palace Resorts, Sunwing, Transat, Royal Caribbean, Playa Resorts, TravelBrands and Manulife Insurance.During the evening Travel Only also named and introduced its eight new President’s Club members for 2018. Travelweek Group Tags: TravelOnly TORONTO — TravelOnly hosted its Annual Distinction Awards event with a gala celebration for its travel agent associates, trade partners and media at the Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel.Since 1974, when TravelOnly got its start headed up by Patrick Luciani, the company has grown over the years to a cross-Canada travel agent network with over 600 travel agent associates.The night included a supplier trade show featuring TravelOnly’s travel partners and segued into opening keynote addresses from TravelOnly President Gregory Luciani and Ensemble Canada Executive Vice President, Lindsay Pearlman.Rahul Singh, Executive Director, Global Medic, was one of the night’s special guests, speaking about Global Medic’s global disaster relief efforts, specifically its program of delivering clean water devices to areas affected by hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters to allow people affected to clean contaminated water to get immediate access to clean drinking water which is always in shortage.
