Technology ENGINEERING RESEARCHERS REPORT ON NANO SCALE ENERGY-EFFICIENT SWITCHING DEVICES COMPARED TO SILICON AND OTHER COMMON MATERIALS, SIC IS QUITE SPECIAL BECAUSE IT IS MUCH MORE RESISTIVE TO OXIDATION, TO CHEMICAL CONTAMINANTS AND TO WEAR

E

lectromechanic al switches were the building blocks of electronics before the solid-state transistor was developed during the war. A version made from silicon carbide, at the tiniest of scales, snaps on and off like a light switch, and with none of the energy-wasting current leakage that

plagues the smallest electronics today. The scientists report their findings today at the International E l e c t ro n D ev i c e s Meeting in Washington D.C. The tiny switch's moving part is only about one cubic micron in volume, more than a thousand times smaller than devices made in

today's mainstream m i c r o e l e c t ro m e c h a n i c a l systems (MEMS). Thus, this switch can move much faster and is much lighter. The switch has also proved durable , operating for more than 10 million cycles in air, at ambient temperatures and high heat without loss of performance -- far

20


longer than most other candidates for a non-leaking switch. Such tolerance may enable electronicsmakers to build a computer that operates within the intense heat of a nuclear reactor or jet engine. Silicon transistors start to deteriorate at around 250 degrees Celsius (480 degrees

Fahrenheit). Testing has shown the silicon carbide switches operate at more than 500 degrees Celsius (930 degrees Fahrenheit). The development is significant because switching devices are at the heart of computing and communications technologies. "In our pockets and

backpacks, nowadays we often carry mobile devices that consist of billions of such building blocks, which are switching on and off to perform the i n f o r m a t i o n processing functions," explained Philip Feng, professor of electrical engineering and computer science at C a s e We s t e r n Reserve and leader of

21


the project. Silicon-based metaloxide-semiconductor field effect transistors, called MOSFETs, are the dominant switching devices in integrated circuits and have led to many extraordinary technologies enjoyed today, Feng said. But c o n t i n u e d miniaturization of silicon MOSFETs over the past several decades has recently

s l owe d , a s p owe r consumption and heat dissipation have become major challenges. Energy is lost and heat generated because nano scale MOFSETs leak like an old faucet. Electrons continue to travel through a switch that's turned off. "The silicon switches are leaking power at about 1 to 10 nano watts each," Feng said.

22


"When you have a billion of these on a computer chip, you're losing a few to tens of watts of power. That will consume the battery you carry, even when the transistors are not actively performing computing functions." Large data centres aren't only wasting that energy, they're paying the costs of cooling to prevent computers from overheating. Tina He, Prof. Feng's PhD student in electrical engineering

and computer science at Case School of Engineering, will provide details about making and testing the switches in her presentation, Silicon Carbide (SiC) Nano e l e c t ro m e c h a n i c a l Switches and Logic Gates with Long Cycles and Robust Performance in Ambient Air and High Temperature, at the international meeting. The research team has made three-terminal, gate-controlled switches and different kinds of logic gates --

fundamental elements used in computing and communications. "Compared to silicon and other common materials, SiC is quite special because it is much more resistive to oxidation, to c h e m i c a l contaminants and to wear," Feng said. "Those properties s h o u l d l e n d themselves to devices with more robust performance while protecting them from harsh operating environments."

onu Dangerous or also known as Imnan Ahmed Shah is born in Lahor Pakistan on July 28, 1990. A Leo by sign, and “dangerous� by character. A graduate in commerce, Sonu followed his dream thereafter. The traditional young boy had the expected hobbies such as Cricket, Karate, Gymnastics and of course video games, Sonu also followed music and dance videos. In 2000, Sonu immensely followed pop artists such as Michael Jackson and India's Prabhu Deva. Being truly inspired by these two individuals, Sonu idolized these two expert dancers/performers. Pakistan was yet to see any such artist develop from their country. Sonu followed their styles, techniques and was inspired by their work, which enhanced his passion and determination to follow their footsteps and make this into reality. It was a struggle to break the norm and introduce and follow a male into the industry, but Sonu fought all odds and began his struggle as a stage

28


dancer in 2001. In 2002, Sonu thrived in performing at multiple stage shows, commercials and other music videos and had a break though with his performance on his idol Michael Jackson's track DANGEROUS. The pioneer of dance in Pakistan is the one and only Sonu Dangerous he has been a major part of this industry since 2000. He has won many awards for his creativity in dancing from MTV, he has performed all over Pakistan and internationally. The list doesn't end here to add on to his artistic ways he is a strong vocalist delivering the energy both vocally and in his performance something not a feature in Pakistani artists. His journey in this industry was easy and now he is an icon for his dancing.

PAUL'S WALKER DEATH IN AN ACCIDENT Since Walker's fatal accident, writers including Chris Morgan have been hard at work revising the scrip for the new film and planning how to rework scenes already shot

T

he Los Angeles coroner's office released the results of the autopsies conducted for Paul Walker and Roger Rodas Wednesday, finding that Walker died from the "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries," while Rodas dies of multiple traumatic injuries. Both deaths have been ruled an accident, while a toxicology report is still pending on both cases and is expected to be completed in six to eight weeks. This is also the first time both Walker and Rodas have been formally identified as the two

32


fatalities from the Santa Clarita accident Saturday. Walker and Rodas were both killed when the Porsche Carerra GT they were driving crashed into a pole. According to the police report, the Porsche Carrera was already in flames when authorities arrived to the scene Saturday, and the victims were pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of the accident is still under investigation. On Monday night, Fast and Furious starVin Diesel visited the site of his costar and close friend's fatal car accident, and also showed his

appreciation for fans who have been showing up to mourn the 40-year-old star's tragic death. Universal, the studio that is making the movie, said last week the production was "on hold indefinitely" following Walker's death in a car crash. It is understood that Walker had shot most of the scenes for the seventh installment of the franchise which was originally slated for an 11 July, 2014 release. In a message posted on his Facebook page overnight, Vin Diesel - who plays street racer Dominic Toretto - said the film will be released on 10 April, 2015.

Accesories by: Jhericka Wayuu The Wayuu mochila bags every day are certainly gaining more importance in fashion and the national markets of Colombia as well as the international market. Not only is the traditional causing an impact, but also innovation and the mix of other elements, such as crystals, studs, leather, chains and feathers are giving a touch of originality and creativity to these handcrafted products of Colombia. The Mochila bags are hand-made by the Wayuu, a group of indigenous people who live in La Guajira Peninsula in northern Colombia and north west Venezuela. Each mochila is woven with the art of crochet by one person, so every design is unique and different.

39


Behind every Mochila bag there is a long history of the families who dedicate their time and effort to make them a true work of art. The objective of Jherika Wayuu is to intertwine the traditional and the modern by embellishing them with crystals following the patterns and shapes that each mochila bag has, flattering their beauty, with the end result of capturing the attention of anyone who sees them.

LARRY FOGG In the morning, I packed for the trip to Mu Ko Surin and as I walked toward the local restaurant for breakfast, I realized that it was not open. Somewhat disappointed, I went back to my room to wait for Green view to pick me up. In a little while, to my surprise, there was a knock at my door and a lady appeared with a tray bearing breakfast for me. She said that the cost was 70 Bhat which I considered to be most reasonable

W

hen I decided to travel to Sanliurfa, Tu r k e y , m y primary goal was to visit Gobekli Tepe, the world's o l d e s t a rc h a e o l o g i c a l sanctuary discovered to date. In addition, I also hoped to be able to arrange a visit to Mount Nemrut. After overnighting in Istanbul, I flew to Sanliurfa, it's airport is situated about 35 kilometers from the city. As I departed the terminal, I noticed that there was only one taxi to be found and I immediately hired it for the journey into Sanliurfa. I had a reservation for a hotel that I reserved via the Internet and upon arrival; I was surprised that the front desk was empty and nobody could speak English or interpret my confirmed reservation for a private single ensuite room. They pointed to a sofa and indicated that I should wait there. Young children would come in and sit on an opposing sofa, stare at me, occasionally say “hello� and

then giggle. After nearly half an hour, a man arrived, turned on the lights above the front desk and said that my room would be ready soon.After waiting nearly an hour, a young man came, took my bag and motioned for me to follow him. After several flights of stairs, we arrived at what was to be my room. It was the smallest hotel room that I had ever seen (barely room for the bed and barely room for one carry-on bag at the end of the bed) and the ensuite toilet with shower appeared to be about four feet by four feet square. The bathroom floor was permanently wet and moldy. No money had as yet changed hands, so I went for a walk and stopped in at the Hotel Arte to see if any rooms were available. A nice young lady said that they had rooms with breakfast included and

free WiFi. I looked at two available rooms – one was very nice and the other one was considerably less desirable. I immediately booked the very nice room and walked back to the first hotel and moved out. I offered to pay for

my time there but the man behind the front desk declined to take any money. I was awake early the next morning and a f t e r b re a k f a s t , I walked over to the Hotel Ugur and asked if Mustafa was available. A man named Adam said that he was Mustafa's brother and that Mustafa would be taking a small group to Mount Nemrut in about twenty minutes. I asked if I could join the group and Adam said that I could. In a few minutes a lady from Taiwan named Sunny came into the lobby. She said that she had just arrived in Sanliurfa and had also just joined the group to go to Mount Nemrut. Soon, Mr. Mustafa arrived and, after meeting him, a group of eight people plus Mustafa departed in his minibus for Mount Nemrut.What a lucky break for me! Our first stop en route to Mount Nemrut was at the Ataturk Dam.This is a very large rock-filled dam on the Euphrates River situated on the border

52


of Adyaman Province and Sanliurfa Province . Construction began in 1983 and was completed during 1990 as part of the State Hydraulic Works (DSI). It is the sixth largest dam in the world and the largest dam in Turkey. We continued driving northbound to the west of Lake Ataturk Dam, the large lake formed by the filling of the Ataturk Dam. We stopped for lunch at the Papatya Restaurant in Katha where we had salad and our choice of entrees and beverage. Our next stop was at the Karakus Tumules. This monument tomb was erected by Kommagene King Mithridates II for his mother Isias and is called Karakus (Black Bird) Tumulus because of the eagle on the southern column. The tomb is approximately twenty five meters high with soil and stones and was decorated with three

Harran which is described as being the oldest mosque in Anatolia – it is also referred to as the Ruins of the University of Harran because it housed the university. The University of Harran was an 8th and 9th centur y center for translating works of astronomy, philosophy, natural sciences, and medicine from Greek to Syriac by Assyrians. Harran is also famous for i t s b e e h i ve d o m e d houses. We visited an area with traditional beehive buildings, and I was amazed at just how

54


cool the interior of the domed buildings was when it was very hot outside. Although the Harran Castle site was not open, we were able to walk around the perimeter of the castle. About half way around the castle, three cute young girls came up to me and wanted me to take a photo of them – I got a great photo and they each got one Turkish Lira.

building is situated approximately twentysix kilometers from Harran in Goktas village. This building dates back to the age of Ayyubids (Christian Era 1219). According to the legend, Haci Husameddin Ali Bey, son of Imad, son of Isa who had this khan constructed, filled it with dried grapes and offered them to his passerby guests and/or accommodated guests. This building was ruined after the Mongolian invasion and later used as a stable.

hey may be timeless, but this season classics like the ponytail, the red the French manicure and in men double-breasted blazers, plaid blazers, floral and watercolour prints are popping up, and the man chic seemed radically transformed. The result? A new look of modern collected the best standout moments from the New York, London, Mil ready-to-wear shows. You can wait until next year to try them out. But w are this evolutionary, we suspect you will want to start wearing them now.

BLACK MAGIC & SILVER STREAK The French manicure dabbled in the dark arts on the spring catwalks. The look that typically combines a nail polished in a pale paint and capped off with a bright white tip appeared instead in versions that incorporated black. At Nicholas K, the manicurist topped off a matte ebony nail with a shiny ebony stripe, while at Kenzo a black-and-white nail design in a French layout was entirely bewitching. But the looks that truly cast a spell on us replaced the bright white tip with a swipe of jet polish, positioned off to the side of the nail or framing it. While black and navy manicures appeared on many runways, clear, pale pink, and white looks offered a lighter alternative. Our favourite versions took it up a notch with a metallic accent. A shimmering three-dimensional half-moon nail design at Honor showed a feminine take on the trend, while the pointed tips bisected by a silver band at Cushnie et Ochs were nothing short of cutting-edge.

PARTING WAYS & WAVE RAVE Hairstylists often chose sides for spring, forming a deep part that hovered where the eyebrow tapers. The resulting bangs were swept over the forehead, sometimes with polished precision, as at Dries Van Noten, and sometimes with a wet-look windblown effect. This spring, the beach girl made way for her rock-and-roll sibling. Gone from the runways were the bombshell aprèssurf curls and in their place were lived-in waves that were so matte they appeared to have been untouched for days. Forget "I'm with the band." With this look, the vibe is more "I'm in the band."

71


FLOWER GIRLS & QUEEN LOOK Even with the season's cutting-edge take on beauty, there was still room for romance. Sweet blossoms embellished updos, braids, and ponytails from New York to Milan. Braids weren't as big a story as they have been in the past few seasons. But they didn't vanish entirely. Coiled about the head to create a look fit for a queen.

PERFECT KISS & NEON SIGN Sometimes it's not necessary to polish something up to make it seem new. When it came to the red lip, in fact, makeup artists took the opposite approach to updating this classic look. Saturated pigment that was shine-free was applied precisely and in a way that made it seem to lift off every pretty face that wore it. It wasn't the first time we saw intense orange lips at the shows. The look nevertheless continued to make a statement, providing a fluorescent pop of color that perfectly complemented the sporty clothes with which they were paired.

POINT BLANC & NATURAL LOOK When it came to shadow treatments for spring, beauty rocketed into the space age. It's never a surprise to see bright white spring clothing. But bright white spring lids? The saturated, matte, and graphic bands of the color set against bare lashes were out of this world indeed. The runways continued to make a case for just how cuttingedge minimal beauty can be—and there might be logic to support the claim. During the fall 2013 shows, when we began seeing the bare complexion, makeup artist James Kaliardos said he imagined it would be the way women looked in the future. At that time, he added, our society would be so advanced that we would have all the know-how and technology needed at our fingertips to look our best without the extra embellishment cosmetics provided.

COLOR STORY Pastel hues also sprung up on the runways. Garden-ready lavenders, baby blues, turquoises, greens, and yellows dressed up eyes at Delpozo, Costello Tagliapietra, and Marc Jacobs. Our favorite takes on the trend treated the color as a wash, softly diffusing it to line or accent the area. The result left any association these shades have with the '70s far behind.

PAKISTAN VS SRI LANKA IN UAE, 2013-14

ri Lanka and Pakistan used their two-match series in Dubai starting on Wednesday to size each other up ahead of the World Twenty20 in three months' time. Pakistan, fourth in the Twenty20 rankings, are also aiming to topple Sri Lanka from the top of the standings by winning both matches, the second of which takes place on Friday. “Sri Lanka are a top side so this is in itself a motivation to beat the number one side and if we win both it will lift us to the top of the world,� Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez said. If the series is a 1-1 draw the teams will maintain their current rankings while a 2-0 loss would push Hafeez's team down to fifth. Pakistan go into the matches well prepared after playing four Twenty20 games against South Africa last month. Sri Lanka, led by Dinesh Chandimal, will have to overcome rustiness after most of their recent matches at home were ruined by rain. Last month they beat New Zealand 1-0 with the other match abandoned because of inclement weather.

“The advantage Pakistan's got is that they have played a lot of international cricket in the last six-eight months whereas unfortunately we haven't played nearly as much because of weather and various other things,� said coach Graham Ford. Sri Lanka are hoping their batting will see them through with the experienced Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kumar Sangakkara providing a contrast to Pakistan's fragile and unpredictable batsmen. Ajantha Mendis and Sachithra Senanayake are the two specialist spinners in the bowling department which is spearheaded by paceman Lasith Malinga. Pakistan finished runners-up in the first World Twenty20 held in South Africa in 2007 before winning the title in England two years later. Pakistan's selectors added 19 year-old leftarm paceman Usman Shinwari to the squad after his impressive

performance at domestic level. Shinwari took 5-9 in N a t i o n a l Tw e n t y 2 0 championship final on December 3 in Lahore, which also included Pakistan's one-day and Test captain Misbah-ul Haq's scalp. Pakistan's Squad Mohammad Hafeez (capt), Ahmed Shehzad, Sharjeel Khan, Sohaib Maqsood, Umar Amin, Umar Akmal, Shahid Afridi, Zulfiqar Babar, Bilawal Bhatti, Junaid Khan, Sohail Tanvir, Anwar Ali, Saeed Ajmal, Haris Sohail, Usman Shinwari.
