Anna Richards

first_img Perhaps the most accomplished women’s rugby player ever to grace the game, Anna Richards won the last of her four World Cups as a 45-year-old in 2010, pulling the strings from fly-half to bring her stellar career to a fitting finish.While her sublime passing ability and unmatchable vision in the No 10 shirt were her hallmark, her coolness under pressure stands out most from her years in the game. That was evident in abundance at the 2010 World Cup. Called up as a last-minute replacement, she was masterful throughout the tournament, using her astute brain and nous to guide New Zealand through a tough final against England at the Stoop to prove that age is no barrier to class.The rarity at which New Zealand play Internationals between World Cups means that, despite her longevity, Richards’s cap tally hit just 49, but her brilliance will be remembered for years to come. TAGS: The Greatest Players LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Having played representative tennis and netball, she took up the game belatedly at 21 before debuting for the Black Ferns in 1990. She was also a vital cog in the Auckland team – the dominant force in the women’s game in New Zealand for some years – and, in fact, she was never beaten in her NPC career.Richards was one of the first female players to be inducted into World Rugby’s Hall of Fame and she’s now head coach of the Hong Kong women’s sevens team. She’s the first professional coach to take charge of the ambitious Asian side and, true to form, her charges have come on significantly over the past year.center_img Major teams: College Rifles, AucklandPosition: Fly-halfCountry: New ZealandTest span: 1990-2010 In a distinguished career, which also included club rugby stints in Italy and England, Richards is a true legend of the women’s game.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

Whatever you pick is how you will be labeled for the rest of your life.This decision students had to make was part of an activity during the Tunnel of Oppression event that represented being male or female and the forms of oppression that come with gender identity.The Tunnel of Oppression is a TCU event that allows students to walk through different rooms and scenarios of suffering that happens on campus and around the world.“There is a knowledge and awareness of things that are happening greater than just our backyard and our country,” said Imani Wimberly, co-chair of Tunnel of Oppression.One room focused on people recovering from addictions, another on mental illness in Hollywood and another on being a minority at TCU. The #BeingMinorityatTCU trended on Twitter in 2016.Sydney Senter, a first year pre-major, said the room full of tweets about TCU minorities surprised her the most.“There were so many different tweets all over the wall and how students that are minority feel just on their everyday life at TCU,” Senter said.The event partnered with different departments such as Women and Gender Studies, Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies, Housing and Residence Life and Student Development Services. Students also helped plan the event, which Wimberly said helped set the tone.The Tunnel of Oppression is an experience designed to show oppressions and both sides of a story. Wimberly said he hopes people are able to have those conversations so they can hear the other side of things as well as educating other people on issues.This is the sixth time this event has happened at TCU and Wimberly said student reactions have been positive this year. Students said they took something away from the exhibit.“I think now that I’m aware of the oppression, I can maybe start to make a difference and if I notice it in my community at TCU, I can stand up for those people.” Michaela Hatfield, a first year pre-child development major.Standing up for people who are oppressed is just one small change.“If everybody does something small, then eventually it’ll be something a lot larger,” Wimberly said.

Caltech Scientists Identify Electronic “Noise,” Discovery Could Change Electronics

Electrons, accelerated in the high mobility channel under the 100-nanometer gate, collide and dissipate heat that fundamentally limits the noise performance of the transistor. Credit: Illustration courtesy of Lisa Kinnerud and Moa Carlsson, Krantz NanoArt/Chalmers UniversityA team of  Caltech scientists and engineers  has identified a source of electronic noise that could affect the functioning of instruments operating at very low temperatures, such as devices used in radio telescopes and advanced physics experiments.The findings, detailed in the November 10 issue of the journal Nature Materials, could have implications for the future design of transistors and other electronic components.The electronic noise the team identified is related to the temperature of the electrons in a given device, which in turn is governed by heat transfer due to packets of vibrational energy, called phonons, that are present in all crystals.“A phonon is similar to a photon, which is a discrete packet of light,” says Austin Minnich, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering and applied physics in Caltech’s Division of Engineering and Applied Science and corresponding author of the new paper. “In many crystals, from ordinary table salt to the indium phosphide crystals used to make transistors, heat is carried mostly by phonons.”Phonons are important for electronics because they help carry away the thermal energy that is injected into devices in the form of electrons. How swiftly and efficiently phonons ferry away heat is partly dependent on the temperature at which the device is operated: at high temperatures, phonons collide with one another and with imperfections in the crystal in a phenomenon called scattering, and this creates phonon traffic jams that result in a temperature rise.One way that engineers have traditionally reduced phonon scattering is to use high-quality materials that contain as few defects as possible. “The fewer defects you have, the fewer ‘road blocks’ there are for the moving phonons,” Minnich says.A more common solution, however, is to operate electronics in extremely cold conditions because scattering drops off dramatically when the temperature dips below about 50 kelvins, or about –370 degrees Fahrenheit. “As a result, the main strategy for reducing noise is to operate the devices at colder and colder temperatures,” Minnich says.But the new findings by Minnich’s team suggest that while this strategy is effective, another phonon transfer mechanism comes into play at extremely low temperatures and severely restricts the heat transfer away from a device.Using a combination of computer simulations and real-world experiments, Minnich and his team showed that at around 20 kelvins, or –424 degrees Fahrenheit, the high-energy phonons that are most efficient at transporting heat away quickly are unlikely to be present in a crystal. “At 20 kelvins, many phonon modes become deactivated, and the crystal has only low-energy phonons that don’t have enough energy to carry away the heat,” Minnich says. “As a result, the transistor heats up until the temperature has increased enough that high-energy phonons become available again.”As an analogy, Minnich says to imagine an object that is heated until it is white hot. “When something is white hot, the full spectrum of photons, from red to blue, contribute to the heat transfer, and we know from everyday experience that something white hot is extremely hot,” he says. “When something is not as hot it glows red, and in this case heat is only carried by red photons with low energy. The physics for phonons is exactly the same—even the equations are the same.”The electronic noise that the team identified has been known about for many years, but until now it was not thought to play an important role at low temperatures. That discovery happened because of a chance encounter between Minnich and Joel Schleeh, a postdoctoral scholar from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden and first author of the new study, who was at Caltech visiting the lab of Sander Weinreb, a senior faculty associate in electrical engineering.Schleeh had noticed that the noise he was measuring in an amplifier was higher than what theory predicted. Schleeh mentioned the problem to Weinreb, and Weinreb recommended he connect with Minnich, whose lab studies heat transfer by phonons. “At another university, I don’t think I would have had this chance,” Minnich says. “Neither of us would have had the chance to interact like we did here. Caltech is a small campus, so when you talk to someone, almost by definition they’re outside of your field.”The pair’s findings could have implications for numerous fields of science that rely on superchilled instruments to make sensitive measurements. “In radio astronomy, you’re trying to detect very weak electromagnetic waves from space, so you need the lowest noise possible,” Minnich says.Electronic noise poses a similar problem for quantum-physics experiments. “Here at Caltech, we have physicists trying to observe certain quantum-physics effects. The signal that they’re looking for is very tiny, and it’s essential to use the lowest-noise electronics possible,” Minnich says.The news is not all gloomy, however, because the team’s findings also suggest that it may be possible to develop engineering strategies to make phonon heat transfer more efficient at low temperatures. For example, one possibility might be to change the design of transistors so that phonon generation takes place over a broader volume. “If you can make the phonon generation more spread out, then in principle you could reduce the temperature rise that occurs,” Minnich says.“We don’t know what the precise strategy will be yet, but now we know the direction we should be going. That’s an improvement.”In addition to Minnich and Schleeh, the other coauthors of the paper, “Phonon blackbody radiation limit for heat dissipation in electronics,” are Javier Mateos and Ignacio Iñiguez-de-la-Torre of the Universidad de Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain; Niklas Wadefalk of the Low Noise Factory AB in Mölndal, Sweden; and Per A. Nilsson and Jan Grahn of Chalmers University of Technology. Minnich’s work on the project at Caltech was funded by a Caltech start-up fund and by the National Science Foundation.

Raut informed a division bench of Justices S S Shinde and Manish Pitale that the lady is levelling allegations against him because she is under the impression that he is taking her husband’s side in their matrimonial dispute. The court was hearing writ petitions by the psychologist residing in Kalina, in Mumbai, seeking directions to the Mumbai Police to investigate three FIRs lodged by her in 2013 and 2018 against unknown persons and to initiate action against the Deputy Police Commissioner (DCP), zone 8. After the state government submitted that a charge sheet has been filed in one of the complaints by the woman and A-summary reports were filed in the other two cases, the HC directed the charge sheet to be provided to the woman. According to the petitioner, the DCP failed to follow the directions of the National Commission for Women (NCW) to register an FIR against Shiv Sena MP and leader Sanjay Raut and other persons including her estranged husband as they ‘directly or indirectly’ connived with Raut to harass her. The petitioner, through advocate Abha Singh, has alleged that she had been attacked by unknown persons in 2013 and despite registering complaints at both Mahim and Vakola police stations, no action was initiated. The plea further alleged that another FIR was filed in 2018 against a stalker who was also arrested at Vakola Police station, however, no action was taken by the Police. The woman said that in furtherance of the three FIRs, she had approached the DCP, Zone 8 in September, last year. Despite the NCW directing the officer to register FIR against Raut and others, he did not take any action, which prompted her to move before HC. The petition alleged that the Shiv Sena leader had threatened her several times and also resorted to harassment by tapping her phone and kept track of her movements, using security guards and the police. She claimed that her social and professional life has been disrupted as her husband was told to harass her and later to divorce her. Her friends and acquaintances were told to distance themselves from her or face dire consequences, she said. Given this, the petitioner sought directions for a departmental inquiry for no action on FIRs registered in 2013 and 2018 and ‘suitable action’ against the concerned DCP for not registering FIR. The plea also seeks Raut’s interrogation to ascertain his role in FIRs registered by the petitioner. During the hearing on Friday, Chief public prosecutor Deepak Thakare gave a summary of the investigation and submitted that the pleas were not maintainable. Senior Counsel Prasad Dhakephalkar raised a preliminary objection that if the complainant wanted, she could have approached the magistrate before whom the reports were filed, instead of raising allegations against his client before the High Court and therefore the petitions were not maintainable. Raut refuted allegations and submitted that the petition was baseless and misconceived. Moreover, the petitioner has made a plea before NCW, where she can take further recourse, he said. “I have no problem against any inquiry being conducted. The charge sheet has been filed. She is a family friend and like a daughter to me. I know the family very well. It is she and her husband are having matrimonial disputes. She thinks I am siding with her husband, so she is making allegations against me,” Raut submitted through Dhakephalkar. After hearing submissions, the bench asked advocate Thakare to give the copy of the charge sheet to the petitioner woman within two days and also produce another copy before the Court. “Pending hearing, both sides shall restrain themselves from making allegations outside,” Justice Shinde suggested and posted the matter for further hearing to March 19.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
