  • AntiTrump protesters flood Washington

    first_imgWomen in pink “pussyhats” flooded into Washington by the train-load Saturday for a massive rights march set to draw hundreds of thousands in defiance of America’s hardline new president, Donald Trump.Metro stations overflowed as trains packed to bursting moved cheering, clapping marchers into the city for what was expected to be a record-breaking inauguration-related protest.Michele Phillips, a 45-year-old Canadian from New York State who took US citizenship in 2013, came to make a stand against what she calls Trump’s “platform of hate and bigotry.”“I know that we can do better, we have to fight for the change we want to see,” she told AFP.According to Washington’s deputy mayor Kevin Donahue, organizers have upped their initial turnout estimate from 200,000 to 500,000 people faced with the early morning flood of protesters. The city provides no official crowd counts.Trump’s defeated rival Hillary Clinton tweeted her support to the crowds massed near Washington’s National Mall, preparing to march on the White House led by celebrity participants including Scarlett Johansson and Michael Moore.“Thanks for standing, speaking & marching for our values, @womensmarch. Important as ever. I truly believe we’re always Stronger Together.”Women made up the overwhelming majority of the people who emerged whooping and cheering from Washington’s Union Station, arriving on jam-packed trains and buses.Many carried homemade signs. “Keep your tiny hands off me,” said one. “Rise, Love, Resist,” read another.The incoming tide of women in knitted pink hats flushed through a city that the day before had welcomed throngs of Trump supporters in red “Make America Great Again!” caps for the Republican’s swearing-in to a four year term.Social media-power -Trump—and his new administration—were feted at balls after an inaugural speech that painted a grim vision of national decline under his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, punctuated by the new president’s vow to stop “this American carnage.”For his first full day in the world’s most powerful office, Trump attended a multi-faith service at Washington National Cathedral. He was later due to visit the headquarters of the CIA, an agency he feuded with bitterly before taking office.Powered by social media, the “Women’s March on Washington” illustrates the divisions of a country whose incoming leader faces levels of public mistrust unseen in recent decades.Trump’s inaugural speech on Friday set the tone for his presidency: proudly populist, fiercely nationalist and determined to break with Obama’s legacy.His first act in office—signing an executive order aimed at freezing Obama’s signature health care law—was a potent gesture in that direction, with more such actions expected to follow on Monday.But he faces resistance, dramatized by the show of force by demonstrators with fresh memories of his fat-shaming a former beauty queen, sex assault allegations and a controversial stance on abortion.The knitted “pink pussyhats” they wore were an allusion to his boasts in a leaked videotape of grabbing women’s “pussies” with impunity.Saturday’s march comes on the heels of a first day of anti-Trump protests marred by sporadic outbreaks of vandalism, with windows smashed downtown and more than 200 people arrested.Authorities were on alert for any new flare-up of violence—although the stated goals of the women marchers are resolutely peaceful.‘What hope looks like’ -Jennifer Behr, a 42-year-old accessory designer, rode a packed train from Baltimore to make her voice heard.“It’s important we assert our majority and we have a large physical presence to show Trump and the Republicans that they cannot railroad our country,” she said.While Trump won 42 percent of the women’s vote, millions who did not vote for him worry that gender rights and other progress on women’s health, contraception and abortion could be chipped away.Organizers have not specifically used the term “anti-Trump” to describe their efforts, but the message is clear.Bringing together “people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations and backgrounds,” they say the protest seeks to secure immigrant rights and access to abortion, among other demands—things which Trump’s critics accuse him of wanting to curb.Dozens of progressive groups are supporting the event, as well as Amnesty International and Planned Parenthood, the women’s health care provider that is a Republican target because of the abortion services it provides.The Women’s March began with a simple Facebook post from Hawaii grandmother and retired lawyer Teresa Shook to about 40 of her friends.Word traveled quickly, and eventually made it to the pro-Clinton Facebook group Pantsuit Nation, which has nearly four million members.Some 300 sister marches are being held across the country, from New York to Seattle, as well as in cities around the world.One of the largest was in London, where tens of thousands of women, men and children marched through the city center chanting “Dump Trump” and waving banners “Our Rights Are Not Up For Grabs – Neither Are We.”last_img read more

  • People Were Afraid Of Him — Killers Death Leaves Hope For New

    first_imgEdward Harold Bell in a 1978 booking photo and a more recent TDCJ mugshot. Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharecenter_img 00:00 /10:19 Edward Harold Bell died in a Texas prison on Saturday, leaving many questions about eleven unsolved murders he at one point claimed to have committed.Bell reportedly collapsed Saturday in the Wallace Pack Unit near Navasota, northwest of Houston. The incident, like all in-custody deaths, is being investigated. Bell was 82.Photos of eleven young women murdered in and around Galveston in the 1970s. Former homicide detective Fred Paige has a theory about who killed them.In the 1970s, young girls started disappearing in and around Galveston, often in pairs. Many of their bodies would turn up in swamps, marshes and bodies of water in places like Clear Lake and Texas City.Back in 2017, Houston Matters brought listeners the story of efforts to solve those cases by Houston Chronicle investigative journalist Lise Olsen and former Galveston homicide detective Fred Paige.Michael HagertyLise Olsen and Fred Paige.They theorized that Bell could have been the man behind those murders. Among other circumstantial evidence, Bell had access to some of the areas where crimes were committed or where bodies were discovered. And witnesses saw two of the victims get into a van matching the description of one Bell owned before they were never seen again alive.But, most notably, Paige stumbled across a confession letter Ed Bell wrote back in the 1990s. It included names of some of the girls who were killed and details about them.“The first time I saw that letter I basically said, ‘He’s your guy. This is our guy right here,’” Paige said in 2017.But investigators still apparently lack the proverbial smoking gun evidence to connect him — or anyone else — to the cases.Later in 2017, Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty interviewed Ed Bell in prison where he was serving a 70-year sentence for the murder of a Pasadena man named Larry Dickens.During that interview, Bell no longer wanted to take credit for those eleven unsolved murders, or as he called them in his confession letter, “the eleven who went to heaven.”Michael HagertyEdward Harold Bell speaks to Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty from prison in 2017.Bell said he made it all up for a specific purpose.“I was going to let the state kill me,” he said. “I was — not outwardly, but inwardly — suicidal at that time.”When news of his death began to get out over the weekend, Olsen started receiving messages from family members of the victims, many of whom are convinced Ed Bell killed their daughters, nieces, or friends. Some said they were glad he could no longer be paroled — and many of them played active roles in preventing that by testifying before the parole board.Olsen said, while Bell can never be prosecuted now, she hopes this development helps move the cases forward — that either Bell left some more information behind in his cell, or told a fellow prisoner some information, or that his death will lead people to come forward with new information.“People were afraid of him,” she said. “And there were some people who would never talk to me because they were afraid of him — they were afraid that he might get out.”The murders and the efforts by Paige and Olsen were featured in a true crime documentary series called The Eleven, which aired in 2017.In the audio above, Lise Olsen updates Michael Hagerty on what’s known about the circumstances of Bell’s death, what family members of victims have said, and where the cases go from here.aetv.comA screen capture from “The Eleven,” a true crime documentary series about the unsolved murders of young women around Galveston in the 1970s.

  • Pen draws flexible circuits using halfmeter long carbon nanotube fibers

Credit: Huang, et al. ©2015 American Chemical Society In the future, the researchers hope to expand the drawing technique to use different types of ink for different purposes.”We are now working on enabling more functions in the fiber,” Wu said. “For example, one possibility is semiconducting fibers drawn from a pen tip for flexible device applications.” (Phys.org)—While it may look like researchers from Tsinghua University in Beijing are sketching out an idea for a circuit on a piece of paper, they’re actually using a special pen that draws real circuits using carbon-nanotube-based ink.center_img When writing, the pen is lifted off the paper to stretch and suspend the fibers, which can then be laid down on the substrate in the desired position. The researchers demonstrated that complex fiber patterns can be drawn by hand, and they predict that even greater precision can be achieved using advanced mechanical devices.The researchers also showed that increasing the polymer concentration of the ink increases the diameter of the nanotube fibers from 300 nm to 3 µm. In general, thinner fibers have better conductivity than thicker ones due to their better fiber orientation. Tests show that the highly conductive carbon nanotube fibers also exhibit excellent mechanical flexibility. At first, the researchers expected that the ultralong carbon nanotube fibers should maintain their conductivity after bending and distortion. Somewhat surprisingly, their tests showed that the fibers actually exhibit an increase in conductivity after bending—about a 30% increase after 1000 bending cycles. The researchers propose that the stress caused by bending deforms the polymers and improves nanotube alignment, which in turn increases conductivity.

DOI: 10.1021/nl504150a Citation: Pen draws flexible circuits using half-meter long carbon nanotube fibers (2015, February 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-02-pen-flexible-circuits-half-meter-carbon.html This technique, called “fiber drawing,” has previously been used to construct patterns, but the fiber length is usually very short at just a few millimeters, and the drawing speed is typically very slow. These drawbacks limit its use in circuit fabrication.In the new study, the researchers demonstrated that their new pen can draw carbon nanotube fibers that are more than a half of a meter long with fast drawing speeds of up to 10 cm/second. Their work is published in a recent issue of Nano Letters.Due to the nanotube fibers’ high conductivity and excellent mechanical flexibility, the researchers predict that the fibers could serve as the fundamental building blocks for a wide variety of flexible electronic devices, such as wearable electronics, flexible touch displays, flexible solar cells, RFIDs, and 3D devices.While the pen itself is an ordinary commercial pen, the ink consists of a combination of electrically conductive carbon nanotube fibers and a viscous polymer solution called polyethylene oxide (PEO). The viscous PEO is highly elastic and mechanically strong, which allows it to pull long nanotube fibers from the solution during the writing process. “The drawing technique allow us to achieve very long carbon nanotube fibers mainly due to the high molecular weight of the polymer and high viscosity of the precursor solution as ink,” coauthor Hui Wu, Associate Professor at Tsinghua University, told Phys.org.
