Last Hearth is the ancestral home of House Umber, and if you watched the premiere, you know what happens there. Note the icy tiles representing the White Walkers reaching out to it, showing the path of the dead as they march. Also note the spiral pattern that plays out in a gruesome scene from the episode.Winterfell is comingNext, the camera shoots to Winterfell, the Starks’ beloved home. Winterfell has always been in the credits, but not like this. Here the camera swoops through the godswood and then dives inside the castle itself. It races through the Stark crypt, where there’s a statue of Lyanna Stark, among others. Her life, and the son she delivered before dying, is only going to keep returning as a plot point here. And there are plenty of rumors that the crypt will figure heavily in this season’s episodes. Could the dead be resurrected? It’s been known to happen.King of the hillKing’s Landing is next, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms, home of the Iron Throne and the Red Keep. Look for Qyburn’s scorpion and dragon skulls from past historical battles. Just a reminder that no one is bowing down to the terrifying dragons without a fight. And there’s the Iron Throne, which really doesn’t look worth all this blood and death. The Lannister lion is shown above it now, but maybe not for long.More to comeThe credits aren’t going to be stagnant, so stay alert for clues in future weeks.”I’ll say that there are differences (in the credits) in every single episode,” art director Kirk Shintani told BuzzFeed. “From episode to episode, pay attention, because there’s lots of hints scattered around.” 57 Photos Now that the final season premiere of Game of Thrones has aired, it’s time to roll things back and take a dragon’s-eye view of those new opening credits. (Spoilers ahead.)The credits have always been complex and rewarded repeat and close viewings. The elaborate opening spins through the map of Westeros and changes from week to week. But they’re even fresher this season, as the creative team that designed the credits wanted a whole new chance to remake them.”We wanted to explore the idea that there was more under the surface than previous seasons,” creative director Angus Wall told BuzzFeed in an interview published Sunday. “And that there was an interior and a depth in terms of the layers beneath the surface that we had only hinted at before.”Astrolabe newnessThe credits begin inside of an elaborate astronomical instrument called an astrolabe. If you’re quick on the pause button, you can see it’s covered with murals depicting past plotlines that shaped the story, from the Red Wedding to the birth of Daenerys’ dragons to the fall of the Wall.

The election commission (EC) has turned down the opposition parties’ proposal to deploy army giving them magistracy power in the next parliamentary elections.Besides, the inclusion of the armed forces to the law enforcement agencies in the Representation of the People Order (RPO) is also very unlikely.Eleven opposition parties, including the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), had placed a number of proposals before the EC last month, recommending these changes be made.On the other hand, eight parties, including the ruling Awami League, had proposed the introduction of Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) in the upcoming election. There is a possibility of the EVM being included in the RPO, but the EC has not made a final decision to this end yet, according to the EC’s electoral rules and regulations committee.The committee in a meeting on Wednesday reviewed the amendment proposals of the BNP and other political parties, election commissioner Kabita Khanam, president of the committee, told Prothom Alo. She said the committee did not find deployment of the armed forces with magistracy power necessary.However, the use of EVM is mentioned in the election manual of the city corporations. So, they are considering the proposal to include EVMs in the RPO.Among the proposals placed by the BNP, the committee is considering setting up a complaint centre at the workplace of the returning officers in every upazila and transferring or withdrawing controversial officials, she added.Besides, the committee is also reviewing a number of proposals placed by other parties, including publishing RPO in Bangla, submitting nomination papers online, and reviewing the cost and income of the candidates and increasing the punishment for violation of electoral laws.Badiul Alam Mojumdar, secretary of Shushashoner Janney Nagorik (Shujan), told Prothom Alo that the EC should ensure a congenial environment during the election.The armed forces should be included to the law enforcement agencies in the Representation of the People Order (RPO), he observed.Mass people rely on the army as they believe they are not heavily politicised, he added.As many as 25 among 40 political parties recommended deployment of the armed forces during the dialogues with the EC. BNP, along with ten other parties, wanted the army to be given magistracy power.The committee will gradually review all the proposals, placed by the 40 opposition parties and members of the civil society, including media representatives and experts. The summary of these proposals will be placed before the EC for final review.Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury, a member of the BNP’s standing committee, told Prothom Alo that the country will question the EC’s intentions if they do not deploy the armed forces, but introduce EVMs instead.Former election commissioner Suhul Hussain said deployment of army would be welcomed by the mass people, but they are not much familiar with the EVM. The time is not right for the introduction of EVMs and it can only be introduced when the countrymen are ready to accept it.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakat.
In conventional imaging methods, a beam of photons (or other particles) is reflected off the object to be imaged. After the beam travels to a detector, the information gathered there is used to create a photograph or other type of image. In an alternative imaging technique called “ghost imaging,” the process works a little differently: an image is reconstructed from information that is detected from a beam that never actually interacts with the object. More information: Sean S. Hodgman, Wei Bu, Sacha B. Mann, Roman I. Khakimov, Andrew G. Truscott. “Higher Order Quantum Ghost Imaging with Ultra-Cold Atoms.” Physical Review Letters. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.122.233601Also at arXiv:1901.06810 [cond-mat.quant-gas] The key to ghost imaging is to use two or more correlated beams of particles. While one beam interacts with the object, the second beam is detected and used to reconstruct the image, even though the second beam never interacts with the object. The only aspect of the first beam that is detected is the arrival time of each photon on a separate detector. But because the two beams are correlated, the image of the object can be fully reconstructed.While two beams are usually used in ghost imaging, recent research has demonstrated higher-order correlations—that is, correlations among three, four, or five beams. Higher-order ghost imaging can lead to improvements in image visibility, but it comes with the drawback that higher-order correlated events have a lower probability of detection, which causes lower resolution. In a new paper, a team of physicists from the Australian National University in Canberra has achieved two firsts in higher-order ghost imaging: the first demonstration of higher-order ghost imaging with massive particles (they use ultracold helium atoms) and the first higher-order ghost imaging that uses correlated beams from a quantum source. As their quantum source, the researchers used two colliding Bose-Einstein condensates, which are clusters of atoms cooled to near absolute zero. At such cold temperatures, the atoms in a Bose-Einstein condensate clump together and behave like a single giant atom. In their work, the researchers performed experiments using correlations among up to five helium atoms. They demonstrated that, under certain conditions, higher-order ghost imaging with massive particles from a quantum source can improve the visibility of the image without affecting the resolution. “I think the greatest significance of our work is mostly being able to show that such a challenging experiment is possible,” physicist Sean Hodgman at Australian National University, first author of the paper, told Phys.org. “There are a very small number of multi-particle correlated events in a quantum source, which is partially why it has not been demonstrated previously with optics, and this means even after many tens of thousands of experimental runs only very few events are available to reconstruct a ghost image from.”The improvements demonstrated here could be especially beneficial for applications that demand high visibility but are easily damaged. This is because the technique has the potential to reduce the dosage rates, which reduces the potential radiation damage to the sample. One such application is atomic ghost lithography.”Atomic ghost lithography would be like normal atom lithography, but using correlated beams would allow real-time monitoring of the lithographic process,” Hodgman said. “Higher-order correlations would improve ghost lithography by allowing lower fluxes with the same signal quality, which is important as high fluxes risk damage to the sample.”With further work, higher-order quantum ghost imaging could also be used to perform fundamental tests of quantum mechanics, such as demonstrating entanglement among multiple atoms or, in a related vein, making Bell’s inequality measurements using three or more particles.

Dancer Geeta Chandran is marking four decades since her arangetram in 1974. To mark these 40 glorious year of dancing, Natya Vriksha, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Pyramid Group is presenting the exhibition, In the Click of a Movment, of iconic photographs by photographer Rakesh Sahai.Sahai has been following the dancer on her creative journey since past five years, and from the dialogue between dancer and photographer has emerged this oeuvre of brilliant images. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’A universally celebrated artiste, a celebrity and a star-performer, Chandran is synonymous with the Indian classical dance – Bharatanatyam. She began learning Bharatanatyam from the tender age of five years under the tutelage of Swarna Saraswathy.In her dance presentations Chandran skillfully weaves abstract notions of joy, beauty, values, aspirations, myth and spirituality. She is celebrated not only for her deep and composite understanding of the art of Bharatanatyam, but also for her Carnatic music, her work in television, video and film, theatre, choreography, dance education,dance activism and dance-issue journalism.
