C press conference

C. press conference “And voting against this deal with no better options in sight makes the potential for Iran to develop a nuclear weapon more likely” Whether Iran ultimately obtains a nuclear weapon is as much a matter of physics as it is of politics Foster suggested at Tuesday’s announcement That’s why he has been analyzing the science underpinning the deal—in addition to the politics—since the proposed agreement was announced this past July Now after 15 “lengthy” briefings with US Department of Energy (DOE) scientists and other technical experts Foster says his support “is determined not just by trust but by science” The congressman holds a physics PhD from Harvard University and spent more than 2 decades as a particle accelerator designer at Fermilab a DOE national laboratory in Batavia Illinois Because of his training and experience Foster emphasized that he felt “a special responsibility” in reviewing the proposed agreement especially concerning its more technical aspects such as the transformation of Iran’s Arak reactor to render it incapable of producing large amounts of weapons-grade plutonium Foster noted that his physics background and experience managing technical projects had helped him analyze whether the deal would successfully block the multiple paths the Iranians might take to create a nuclear weapon “I went into this putting myself in the mindset of a nuclear proliferator in Iran and saying ‘What if I try that If we find this is impossible or blocked by the agreement what are the alternatives’ So you go through these ‘what if’ questions making sure we have all the leaks plugged” he said At the press conference the congressman was flanked by US Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz one of the key negotiators of the agreement and Richard Garwin a physicist who helped develop the first hydrogen bomb Garwin recently co-wrote a letter to President Barack Obama supporting the agreement along with 28 prominent scientists and engineers including Rush Holt who signed as an individual but is also the chief executive officer of AAAS (publisher of ScienceInsider) “I am here today to add my name to that list of 29 scientists and engineers who have endorsed the deal and the growing number of members of Congress who will be voting in favor of it” Foster said Although a majority of both houses of Congress—which are controlled by Republicans—are expected to support a measure opposing the deal analysts predict it will survive That is because opponents in Congress have not mustered enough support to override a presidential veto which requires two-thirds of the votes in each body (President Obama has signaled that he would veto such a measure if it reached his desk) It is still not clear however whether the Senate will actually vote on an Iran bill; 42 Democrats have said they support the deal potentially denying opponents in the Senate the 60 votes needed to end debate and bring the issue to a voteWritten by Swapnil Mathur | Updated: September 10 2016 10:22 am Apple iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus Display resolution and size has not changed from the previous version (Source: AP ) Top News Apple’s September 7 event saw a lot of interesting announcements and reveals but one of the most interesting ones has to be the display Apple has chosen to retain the existing resolution on both the iPhones but changed the nature of the display itself to something they call “wide colour gamut” An exciting phrase if you’re a professional photographer or a filmmaker but to the common person it is bound to spell more issues than expected for many As exciting as it may be to hear claims of “brighter screens and better richer colours” we break down the terminology and how this new change in the iPhone 7 could have an impact on your interaction with the digital world What is Colour Space In the simplest terms colour space refers to the number of colours that can be represented in a single photo Think of it like having a box of crayons one with only 10 colours and the other having 40 The colours are the same in each box (red green blue etc) but the transition between the colours is a lot finer in the box that contains 40 crayons vs the one that contains 10 Of the colours that make up the visible spectrum the sRGB space includes the least number of colours roughly 167 of them In the colour spectrum graph the centre is supposed to be pure white and as we move towards the edge of the colour plot the saturation is supposed to keep increasing This means sRGB colour space didn’t have all the necessary saturation values and hence we created AdobeRGB (35 per cent more colours) and ProPhotoRGB (higher colour inclusion than the visible spectrum) Why Colour Space Matters All digital devices must conform to some standard way of representing colour so that what is a particular shade of red on my screen is the same shade of red on your screen and across any screen Since sRGB was the first colour space created all our digital devices conform to that standard It’s not just that almost every screen is designed to display sRGB most effectively it’s also the fact that all content being created today conforms to that colour standard as well This ensures content is being viewed the way it was created If you open an image created in the AdobeRGB space on an sRGB monitor (which can at most only display 76% of the AdobeRGB colour space) you will notice that there is not only a slight change in the colour but also patchiness in the gradient That’s because a smaller colour space cannot show the contents of a larger colour space As such AdobeRGB has been considered the standard in of “wide gamut”and monitors capable of displaying the entire wide gamut tend to cost a lot If you open an image created in the AdobeRGB space on an sRGB monitor (which can at most only display 76 per cent of the AdobeRGB colour space) you will notice that there is not only a slight change in the colour but also patchiness in the gradient That’s because a smaller colour space cannot show the contents of a larger colour space As such AdobeRGB has been considered the standard in of “wide gamut”and monitors capable of displaying the entire wide gamut tend to cost a lot Read more: Apple iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus: The two big ‘new’ features explained What Apple’s Wide Gamut is About Apple’s Wide Gamut on the iPhone 7 isn’t the AdobeRGB colour space but a cinematic colour profile called DCI-P3 Technically the P3 colour profile incorporates the same number of colours but the AdobeRGB profile is a little more to the centre as compared to P3 Apple’s choice of profile leans towards the reds and the oranges on the visual spectrumwhile shifting ever so slightly away from the blues This essentially means you’re going to get very deep reds yellows and oranges but the blues might suffer a little Read more: Apple iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus: Four points that left us wanting for more What this means is that you’ll get deeper and richer oranges and reds and yellows (amazing sunset photos) but you might see your blues suffer a little (unless Apple compensates with software) Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus display has a wider-colour gamut What’s the Potential Problem While wide gamut displays are great (richer colours and what not) there is a slight problem when it comes to content creation If the iPhone’s camera is now shooting images in the P3 colour space they will not be displayed right on a standard sRGB screen which is pretty much every screen and printer in the world at this point Read more: Apple iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus first look+video: Black finish stunning camera Unless content is being created within the higher colour space viewing it on wide gamut screens is just overkill However if content is created in the higher colour space then viewing it on a screen incapable of displaying that entire gamut will significantly take away from the viewing experience For example the colour value 02550 represents a particular shade of green but the shade is different in both the AdobeRGB and the sRGB space With P3 we’ve now got a third contender in the colour space With Apple iPhone 7 the wide colour gamut is promising a better more vivid screen (Source: Reuters) If the iPhone cameras are shooting images in the P3 or even the AdobeRGB colour space (since we now have RAW output) the wide gamut screen is a great feature but these images and videos may not translate the colours over to your computer or even the older iPhone the same way If the camera is shooting content in the standard sRGB space (so that it looks uniform across all screen) then viewing it on a wide gamut screen should technical not enhance it unless Apple is working some software magic on it Regardless of the situation there still will be software re-calibration of the image to convert it from one colour space to another so as to keep the content’s viewing experience consistent Wide Gamut displays at the moment are extremely expensive monitors only afforded by serious professionals who are in the multimedia business Apple’s introduction of a wide-gamut screen into a device that is so commonplace is bound to drive innovation to a point where such screens may end up becoming cheaper but an industry-wide revolution is still only a far-fetched dream For now we cannot wait to get our hands on the new iPhone 7 and actually figure out what it is that Apple is doing with the screen and the camera For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App IE

that their characters often acquire a life and mind of their own Eminent writer Kiran Nagarkar seems amazed by the exploits of Rani the yoga teacher-cum-con artist after whose pseudonym his recently-published screenplay Black Tulip is titled He is also saddened when he recollects the torture she is subjected to by a mafia don while trying to help Regina Fielding a cop Rani adores “On one

animatedly as if he were talking about an acquaintance Share This Article Related Article With this screenplay which offers two alternative endings Nagarkar tries to revive the heist genre Using humour which the author finds sorely missing in modern movies he has created Rani a quick-fingered con woman who does not find the need for gadgets to carry out her exploits The text has been published by HarperCollins as a double bill along with Bedtime Story a controversial play he had written after the Emergency in 1977 Seated in his living room swept by the morning sun the 72-year-old author talks about how he has been writing screenplays since he was a budding writer “My first screenplay was around the time I wrote my first play Bedtime Story but this is the first one to have hit the bookstands” he says Even Ravan and Eddie (1994) Nagarkar’s most popular novel started out as a script made for the big screen However when the director who had approached him lost interest the saga of the two Bombay chawl-bred boys turned into one of India’s most popular novels instead The text for Black Tulip has been published as a double bill along with Bedtime Story Since the Ravan and Eddie days Nagarkar had written nearly six screenplays but never showed it to anyone His Cuckold (1997) the Sahitya Akademi Award-winning novel was also wooed by a number directors and producers to be turned it into a period drama but to no avail “If Cuckold and Ravan and Eddie did not get made into a movie who was going to read my other screenplays” he quips Black Tulip has seen the light of day because of an innocuous discussion on movies with a friend The author realised he had written a heist script between 2000 and 2001 Once he fished out the manuscript he zealously rewrote and revised it before handing it over to the publisher “I wanted the book to be read in an armchair without the reader wanting to put it down If a director comes into the picture ever they will change it but that’s their business I wanted to make it as readable as possible I wanted to keep it very visual” he says Apart from consulting German script-doctor Ursula Koehler and scriptwriter Tara Wilkinson among others he sent former commissioner of police Satish Sahney a draft of Black Tulip His meticulous approach to the script was not always appreciated He even came close to being thrown out of a bank when he met its manager with some queries regarding their cash delivery system This year the final installment of his Ravan and Eddie trilogy — RIP Ravan and Eddie — is expected to be launched Nagarkar does not have the release date yet but assures that the antics of Ravan and Eddie would be as delightful as in the previous two books While giving the lowdown on his upcoming title he stops midway
