Jose Mourinho didn’t have a lot to say today in regards to his departure from Manchester United on TuesdayThe Portuguese coach was given his marching orders from Old Trafford following Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to rivals Liverpool.The result left United down in sixth-place in the Premier League table and 11 points adrift of Chelsea in fourth.Following last weekend’s outcome, the United board acted and dismissed Mourinho with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replacing him as interim coach for the rest of the season.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…It ended a two-and-a-half-year spell in charge of United, which saw Mourinho fail to add any more silverware to the treble he had won in his first campaign.And the 55-year-old was not in the mood at all to be entertaining questions over his future in football management after making his first public appearance since Tuesday’s news.“Let me walk. I have nothing to say,” Mourinho told reporters, via FourFourTwo, as he left his house in London.Solskjaer will begin his reign in charge of United away to his old club Cardiff City, who he coached in 2014, this Saturday.
Sultan Mohammad Mansur and Mokabbir KhanGano Forum’s two MPs-elect—Sultan Mohammad Mansur (Moulvibazar-2) and Mokabbir Khan (Sylhet-2) — want to be sworn in on 7 March to join the 11th parliament.Talking to UNB, the duo said they sent a letter to speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury today (Saturday) requesting her to arrange their oath-taking ceremony on 7 March.Angered by their decision, Gano Forum leaders declared Mansur and Mokabbir persona non grata in their office and threatened to take necessary action against them.Mansur was elected MP from Moulvibazar-2 seat contesting the 30-December election as a Gano Forum candidate under Jatiya Oikya Front platform with BNP’s electoral symbol ‘sheaf of paddy’ while Mokabbir from Sylhet-2 constituency with Gano Forum’s election symbol ‘rising sun’.Mansur said they both decided to be sworn in on the historic 7 March if the Speaker takes steps in this regard as per their letter.He also said he has no relation with Gano Forum as he was a candidate of Jatiya Oikya Prokriya.Mansur said he talked to Gano Forum president Kamal Hossain barely five days back and found him positive about his joining parliament.Asked whether he consulted Oikya Front leaders about the matter, he said as a steering committee member he himself took the decision considering the interests of people of his constituency. “People of my constituency elected me braving serious adversities. Now it’s my duty to work for them and respect their mandate.”Mansur said he will play a constructive role in parliament as an independent member of parliament of Jatiya Oikya Prokriya.Mokabbir Khan said he took the decision to take oath as their most party leaders, except a few ones, are in favour of joining the House.He said Kamal Hossain made positive remarks in this regard at different meetings of the party.Mokabbir, also a presidium member of Gano Forum, said he mainly took the decision as people who made him MP are creating pressure on him to join parliament to work for them.Contacted, Gano Forum general secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu said the two-MPs elect will violate the party decision if they take oath, and they will subsequently face action.“Our party’s decision is not sending the two MPs to parliament. We’ll take all the necessary action if they take oath,” he added.Montu said Kamal Hossain is in no way positive about taking oath by the two party MPs -elect. “The duo is giving false statement involving our president with their decision to take oath. Sir (Kamal) did not permit them to take oath.”Gano Forum central leader Rafiqul Islam Pathik said their party leaders declared the duo unwarranted in their office since they sent a letter to the speaker for taking oath violating the party decision.BNP along with Gano Forum and some other parties joined the 30 December election in alliance under the banner of Jatiya Oikya Front. BNP bagged six seats while Gano Forum two in the election.The alliance turned down the election results bringing the allegation of ‘massive vote robbery’ and demanded fresh polls.The first session of the new parliament began on 30 January without the participation of the eight MPs-elect of Oikya Front.
The Institute for the Advancement of Multicultural & Minority Medicine will host the third annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Global Health Equity Summit on Jan. 20 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Willard Hotel, 1401 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W. This instrumental and exciting Summit brings together inspired minds within the industry to address Emerging Global Health Equity Crisis in Non-Communicable Diseases Through Collaboration. These discussions are the foundation to “providing the infrastructure and support need to combat increasingly ‘global’ health problems.”Our distinguished speakers will discuss topics concerning: Global Approach to Non-Communicable Diseases, Successful Outcomes of Global Alliances, Business-Minded Approaches to Global Health Challenges, Global Impact of Poor Oral Health, The role of Women and Girls in Global Health, The Major Role of Non Traditional Health Providers, and Infrastructure and Acute Disasters.
© 2011 PhysOrg.com Citation: Here come the quantum dot TVs and wallpaper (2011, December 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-12-quantum-dot-tvs-wallpaper.html Researchers fabricate first large-area, full-color quantum dot display The quantum dots will be in use for ultra thin, light flat screen TVs by the end of next year, and, in another three years, will be used in flexible screens rolled up like paper or used as wall coverings.The company, Nanoco Group, is reportedly working with Asian electronics companies to bring this technology to market. “The first products we are expecting to come to market using quantum dots will be the next generation of flat-screen televisions,” Nanoco chief executive Michael Edelman has stated.Nanoco describes itself as the “world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots.” While quantum dots technology is not new, the scientists at Nanoco are succeeding in their goals toward mass production. Earlier this year, the company, which was founded in 2001 and is based in Manchester, announced it successfully produced a1kg batch of red cadmium-free quantum dots specified by a major Japanese corporation.The ability to mass-produce consistently high quality quantum dots, says the company site, enables product designers to envisage their use in consumer products and other applications for the first time, and then bring the products to market. Quantum dots are nano-materials with a core semiconductor and organic shell structure. This structure can be modified and built on to ensure the quantum dots work in applications that may use different carrier systems. This includes but is not limited to printing ink including ink jet printing, silicone, polycarbonate, polymethyl methacrylate based polymers, alcohols and water. Nanoco’s team says it can manipulate the organic surfaces of the quantum dots to work in applications like electroluminescent displays, solid state lighting and biological imaging. The ability to precisely control the size of a quantum dot enables the manufacturer to determine the wavelength of the emission, which determines the color of light that the eye perceives. During production the dots can be tuned to emit any desired color of light. Dots can even be tuned beyond visible light, into infra-red or the ultra-violet.Nanoco defines itself as “a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots” at a time when being “cadmium-free” presents special advantage. Cadmium is generally used in LEDs in lighting and displays. The European Union has made it exempt, though, from its Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive due to the fact that there isn’t yet a practical substitute, according to eWEEK Europe. That exemption is to end in July 2014.“Our research and development department is also constantly engaged in the creation of new quantum dots with additional properties sought by the market, such as our RoHS-compliant heavy metal-free quantum dots,” says the company.

Individual light-emitting quantum dot crystals are 100,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Large numbers used together potentially create room-sized screens on wallpapers. (PhysOrg.com) — A British firm’s quantum dot technology will be used for flat screen TVs and flexible screens, according to the company’s chief executive.
