Woodfill then overcorrected, steered the truck across the opposite lane and struck the jogger, said CHP Officer Travis Garrow.Woodfill’s truck continued down a dirt embankment after striking Gotell and overturned, Garrow said.The victim was transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego, where she later died. A Gofundme has been made to help the victim’s family.Garrow said Woodfill remained at the scene, and officers determined that he was allegedly under the influence of alcohol at the time of the deadly collision.The Santee resident faces a maximum of 15 years to life in state prison if convicted. He will be back in court Sept. 24 for a readiness conference.

VAVI Sports/Social Club.VAVI Sports sponsors and organizes over a dozen different sports, from Kick-Ball to Soccer. “A couple big things that will benefit our community.  They will not cost the taxpayers any money and they have plans to bring an M.L.S. Team to San Diego”, says Cunningham.Like the plan from SDSU, Soccer City plans to build a river park, create opens spaces, housing and a thriving entertainment district. Soccer City claims their plan will not cost taxpayers a dime.

Abilene to Apply for Grant to Upgrade Visitors Control Center at Dyess

first_imgThe Abilene Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee plans to apply for a $1.75 million grant from the Texas Military Preparedness Commission to upgrade the visitor control center at Dyess Air Force Base.On Tuesday the economic development agency for Abilene agreed to contribute $200,000 toward the application’s requirement for a local match. Those funds would be combined with $150,000 of in-kind contributions from the federal government to meet the 20 percent match, reported the Abilene Reporter-News.The city will apply for a second round of grants, totaling almost $16 million, the state will award on March 31. Last month, the Texas Military Preparedness Commission awarded $14.1 million to four communities for projects intended to support local installations. The Legislature allocated $30 million for the grant program for the fiscal 2016-2017 biennium.The project at Dyess is intended to improve security at the installation’s front gate by expanding the control center.“There are deficiencies at this control center,” said Bryan Yates, chamber vice president for military affairs. The new center already has been designed and could go ahead if Abilene secures funding, he said.The project should bolster the standing of Dyess in a future BRAC round, according to Yates.“It is the single largest employer in the area. If that base were to draw down or close altogether, it would be a significant negative impact to the Abilene economy,” he said. “Even though we have made great strides in the last 20 years in diversifying our economy, this is still an important component, and we want to make sure that stays there for the foreseeable future.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Controlling Photons for Use in Quantum Computing

first_img Rempe, a Director at Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, and a team of fellow scientists believe they have solved the problem of producing and controlling photons by using an optical cavity. Rempe and his colleagues, Doctors Wilk, Webster and Specht at the Max Planck Institute, and Doctor Kuhn at the University of Oxford, have completed an experiment in which they were able to control the direction of a photon emitted from an atom, and its polarization. “This represents a great single-photon source that we can control,” Rempe says. The team details the results of the ground breaking experiment in a paper that appears in Physical Review Letters with the title, “Polarization-Controlled Single Photons.” In the experiment, laser pulses were used to make a single atom emit photons in a stream. “Typically, if you excite an atom and it emits a photon, you can’t control the direction it is emitted in,” Rempe explains. He describes, in an email, an optical cavity, consisting of a pair of mirrors facing each other. These mirrors are separated by a distance of only 1 mm, and used to set the direction of the emitted photons. “The cavity influences the atom so that photons it produces are likely to be emitted in a direction perpendicular to the surface of the mirrors,” Rempe says. “Once emitted, a photon bounces between the mirrors thousands of times before passing through one of them to escape into the laboratory in a known direction.”Rempe admits that the generation of single photons inside an optical cavity has been demonstrated before. But this new experiment adds another layer to the work done before. Rempe’s group takes the control demonstrated in prior optical cavity experiments one step further by being able to determine the polarization of the photons produced. A magnetic field is applied to the atom, allowing different polarizations to be produced, depending on the frequency of the laser pulses used. So, not only can the direction of the photons be controlled, but it is now also possible to completely control all the photon’s degrees of freedom.This, Rempe says, is only a first step towards using quantum processes for computing and communicating. He hopes that his team’s work can lead to additional advances in quantum information processing. “We should be able to extend our scheme to produce photons that are entangled with the internal state of the atom,” says Rempe. “This would be a first step towards creating a quantum network which would allow quantum information to be transferred between different laboratories.” He emphasizes that this new process “opens more possibilities in quantum information processing.” By Miranda Marquit, Copyright 2007 PhysOrg.com.

To do this, you need a source able to produce photons under full control.” This document is subject to copyright.
