Slow traffic worsens commuters woes

first_imgTraffic are seen on Dhaka-Mymensingh. Photo: Prothom AloCommuters leaving the capital for home ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr are suffering as traffic appears very slow at key exit routes of the city.Police said the excessive number of buses on the Dhaka-Tangail, Dhaka-Mymensingh and Dhaka-Aricha highways are causing the Eid goers so much suffering.Buses on the Dhaka-Aricha highway from Jahangirnagar University to Nabinagar were seen moving very slowly.Savar traffic police inspector Abul Hossain said three vehicles broke down on the Dhaka-Aricha highway between Savar and Bishmai areas, causing long tailbacks.Vehicles are seen on Dhaka-Tangail highway. Photo: Prothom AloKonabari highway police officer-in-charge Hossain Sarkar said vehicular movement was normal on the Dhaka-Tangail highway. But, buses were moving slowly in some areas of Gazipur due to excessive numbers of buses on the highway.If weather remains good, holidaymakers could go home hassle-free, the police officer observed. Kaliakair upazila police station inspector Masud Alam said as many as 1000 members of police and community police have been deployed on the highways.He also told Prothom Alo that buses were moving slowly on the Dhaka-Mymensingh highway between Tongi and Gazipur areas, but no there were no tailbacks there.last_img read more

New study finds stars in metalrich galactic areas explode more violently

first_img(Phys.org) —A team of researchers working in China has found evidence to suggest that stars that exist in metal-rich galactic areas tend to explode more violently when they go supernova, than do stars that explode in less metal-rich areas. In their paper published in the journal Science, describing their research, the team details how after analyzing data from the remnants of 188 type 1a supernovas, they found that those stars that existed in metal-rich areas and maybe in younger systems, tended to produce more violent explosions and associated diverse spectral features.

Credit: NASA/MPIA/Calar Alto Observatory, Oliver Krause et al. © 2013 Phys.orgcenter_img More information: Evidence for Two Distinct Populations of Type Ia Supernovae, Science DOI: 10.1126/science.1231502ABSTRACTType Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) have been used as excellent standardizable candles for measuring cosmic expansion, but their progenitors are still elusive. Here, we report that the spectral diversity of SNe Ia is tied to their birthplace environments. We find that those with high-velocity ejecta are substantially more concentrated in the inner and brighter regions of their host galaxies than are normal-velocity SNe Ia. Furthermore, the former tend to inhabit larger and more-luminous hosts. These results suggest that high-velocity SNe Ia likely originate from relatively younger and more metal-rich progenitors than normal-velocity SNe Ia, and are restricted to galaxies with substantial chemical evolution. Scientists have come to believe that supernovas come about in a process that involves a white dwarf. But because a single white dwarf isn’t large enough to set off an explosion, they believe a second star must be involved as well—either another white dwarf as a binary system or via accretion of material by a companion star. Researchers can’t tell using current methods which was involved when studying particular supernovas. In this new effort, the researchers believe they might have found a way to do so.By studying and comparing the spectral features of 188 type 1a supernovas and the galactic geography of the area in which they exploded, the researchers discovered what they believe is a pattern that they claim hints at the nature of the progenitor star that led to the explosion—those in metal-rich areas tended to produce more violent explosions. This suggest it’s more likely that the more violent explosions are the result of a white dwarf pulling mass from a companion star—one similar to our own, or perhaps a red giant—than the result of a binary white dwarf system exploding.Understanding the nature of supernovas is critical to understanding the universe in general, as they are used to measure distances between objects—such measurements have led to the discovery that the universe is expanding, for example. For that reason, it would be helpful to know which sorts of stars lead to their creation and why they behave the way they do when they explode. This new research appears to be one more step in that direction. Journal information: Science This document is subject to copyright.

A musical sojourn

first_imgThe audiences witnessed the celebrated notes of the artiste playing some classic numbers. The concert embarked the legacy of the recently launched piano club while honouring the 2011 launch of this vintage European dining at 1911 Brasserie.From scintillating pianism of Liszt to the vibrant rhythms of Bartók, the heroism of Chopin and the dazzling finger work of Ravel, it was an evening of unabashed virtuosity. Lutchmayer performed some of the most daring and demanding music written on the Steinway grand piano at The Imperial. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Vijay Wanchoo, Sr. Executive Vice President and GM expressed, ‘It gives us great pleasure to commemorate the 3rd anniversary of our restaurant with an alluring musical sojourn, orchestrated by none other than Karl Lutchmayer. Classic western food with astounding live music makes Nostalgia a unique and retro European restaurant and our focus has always been to enhance its stellar dining experience.’He further said ‘Stepping towards luxurious and unique live concerts on Steinway piano, our effort has always been to bring to enchanting, influential and smashing recitals. We plan to organise many such great events in future as part of our recently launched piano club, sweeping the music aficionados with the ultimate and the unmatched.’ The evening concluded with a lavish spread of traditional European recipes from Nostalgia.last_img read more

Why Zynga Burst OMGPOPs Balloon

first_imgAugust 8, 2013 After acquiring mobile-game developer OMGPOP last year for $200 million, Zynga is now pulling the plug.”Our goal at Zynga is to give players the opportunity to play the most fun and social games on mobile and the web,” the company stated in a Monday blog post. “With this goal in mind, we have decided to close OMGPOP.com to make way for new and exciting gaming opportunities.”So for the approximate 30,000 users that have wasted countless hours playing OMGPOP games Cupcake Corner, Gem Rush, Pool World Champ and Snoops games, they will have to find another time-sucking app.Related: 10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Mobile App DeveloperWhile Zynga does plan to hold onto OMGPOP’s most popular game Draw Something and its offspring Draw Something 2 and Draw My Thing, only time will tell how long they’ll last. The monthly active users, or MAU, from OMGPOP’s blockbuster Draw Something has seen a 89.7 percent drop in users from April 21, 2012 to August 7, 2013, according to a graph provided to Young Entrepreneur by application analytics company AppData. 2 min read It’s hard to blame Zynga for trying to move forward with a leaner model – especially as other games also saw similar drops in users. But, why not sell OMGPOP back to its original owners?Various OMGPOP employees reportedly approached Zynga in the hopes of buying back any assets including: the site, games and intellectual property. Many team members even offered to work for free if the buy-back occurred. Zynga flat out said no, citing the hassle of legal work and time. The company laid off OMGPOP employees instead.Related: The New Cool Kids: Teenage-App DevelopersNow cast as the big bad wolf that stomped out the dreams of a startup, Zynga faces a two potential headwinds: one) possible pushback from customers who actually liked the games Zynga is shutting down and two) future acquisition targets may not look too kindly on a buyout offer from Zynga in the future.Still, from a business perspective, it would seem that Zynga did what it had to do. If the game-maker returned OMGPOP to its original owners, it might have ended up with a new competitor. Yet with all of OMG’s former workers now unemployed, maybe they still will?Think Zynga was wrong or right for shuttering OMGPOP? Let us know with a comment.
