Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Castro, though, may have gotten away with just a little more than a quick inside pass as video replays showed he lifted his pivot foot when he made the pass to Rosario which should’ve been a travel call, but no whistles were blown and the KaTropa went on to claim an 80-75 win over the Hotshots in the PBA Philippine Cup.As for the alleged travel, Castro said it’s not his responsibility to count anyone’s steps.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets offers from Asia, Australian ball clubs“That’s not my job anymore, that’s the referees’ job,” said Castro in Filipino Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena.Castro’s wits and Roger Pogoy’s overtime heroics saw the KaTropa get to a 3-3 record and take sole possession of the fourth seed, something that the team would hold dear ahead of their three-week break.

The Eagles took both the boys and girls first place spot in that event and completed the three day meet with 875.50 points, outperforming their nearest contender by 301.67 points. Second in the meet was the Spartans of British West Indies Collegiate, with a spectacular show and 573.83 points. The Green Machine of North Caicos, Raymond Gardiner High earned 492.33 points in a third place effort and the shockers of the meet, the Hawks of Long Bay High School who had its first formers’ compete in all classes of the meet, that means those seventh graders ran against the bigger students and got 327 points. Marjorie Basden High of South Caicos got 258.33 points… sixth was Maranatha Academy with 150 points, edging out TCIPS by one, 149 and 7th in the meet… 8th place is TCI Middle School, with 41 points… 25 points was for Wesley Methodist High school in 9th and Alpha Christian Academy finished 10th with three points. While no new records were set, and there was the noticeable absence of 2014 Champs, HJ Robinson High out of Grand Turk the contest was called well organized by the Principals Association by Dwayne Taylor, who along with Godfrey Been MC’d the high school meet.Competitors in the Inter High school championships are also aiming to qualify for the CARIFTA Games which this year will be held in Grenada. The Primary School championships are next week Monday and Tuesday, also at the National Stadium. National Heritage Month ends
LCDs, have of course, become widely popular as the display type of choice for computers, smarthphones and handheld devices—they form the most basic part of such screens, the pixels. Each pixel is made up of a sandwich of liquid crystals set between pairs of glass plates—one of which polarizes light shone from behind. Light movement is controlled by turning on or off a small electric charge to cause the crystals to rotate a little bit or to relax. With state of the art technology, rotating the crystals happens very quickly when current is applied—it’s the relaxing back to their natural state that occurs relatively slowly. In this new effort, the researchers found a way around this problem by using crystals that don’t need to be rotated to control the way light is allowed to pass through, or not.The solution was found in using a type of molecule called CCN-47 as the basis for the crystals—when placed together in a solution they naturally align in a perpendicular fashion. This meant that they wouldn’t have to be rotated to change light passing through. Instead, they found that using such molecules as the basis for crystals meant that the polarization of the light could be rotated (by changing the way the electric field was applied) instead of the crystals—a much faster process. Testing showed the relaxation state could be achieved in just 30 nanoseconds instead of the usual several milliseconds.The researchers don’t expect this new type of LCD to replace those now used for common display devices—those are now fast enough that any gains in speed would not be noticeable to the human eye. Instead, they believe the new types of LCDs might be used to make new kinds of lasers for use in satellite communications or perhaps in cameras.

The result, the team explains in their paper published in Physical Review Letters, is a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display device that has much faster change rates than conventional LCDs.

Rev. Lett. 111, 107802 (2013) link.aps.org/doi/10.1103/PhysRevLett.111.107802AbstractElectrically induced reorientation of nematic liquid crystal (NLC) molecules caused by dielectric anisotropy of the material is a fundamental phenomenon widely used in modern technologies. Its Achilles heel is a slow (millisecond) relaxation from the field-on to the field-off state. We present an electro-optic effect in an NLC with a response time of about 30 ns to both the field-on and field-off switching. This effect is caused by the electric field induced modification of the order parameters and does not require reorientation of the optic axis (director). This document is subject to copyright.

The beauty and hair care industry in India is witnessing a growth with new products and processes making inroads every season. Hair taming is one such method that seems to have made it big in the “evolved” hair care industry as women are loving the “no side effects and no harmful chemicals” procedure. Talking about the changing trends, experts say: “Earlier, when women used to use heat appliances like straightening iron, blow dryers onto their strands or undergo hair treatments like rebonding, hair smoothening, they faced many difficulties with the texture of the hair, which resulted in dissatisfaction. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”When hair taming came into the Indian market, people gradually started getting the hold of it. Hair taming gives the desired texture to the hair with its 100 per cent protein treatment known as keratin, which is infused into the cuticles to make hair healthier and shinier.”Speaking further, they revealed how hair taming has become a new age trend in the market as it rejuvenates strands from the roots while relaxing it. “As compared to rebonding or hair smoothening, taming involves more natural protein-based process which uses relatively fewer chemicals. Women prefer hair taming rather than going for artificial hair treatments because it helps them in managing hair easily, without any worries of frizz and damage,” experts told.

It conditions hair while infusing natural keratin deep into the cuticle of the hair shaft. There is no better treatment than this when it comes to silky, smooth and frizz free hair. Hair taming treatment has been successful so far in delivering these results which is why even the biggest brands are getting into this treatment.The future of hair care industry lies in the products and treatments which restore the hair back to natural state with no side effects, no harmful chemicals and no artificial look, one of the experts, who has been observing the changing trends pointed out. “The changes were less prominent and slow in the beginning as people were in the process of adapting this change. But by the 20th century, keratin treatment became a hype in the market across the globe and that’s how eventually all the big brands and salons started including keratin treatment in their products and services,” experts said.Many brands are focusing on keratin treatments for smooth hair. So how effective is it for long hair and how can one avoid the complications?”After getting the treatment done, one has to be very careful while buying hair products and has to look into the chemicals and ingredients added to it. Try switching to sulphate-free products which keeps the moisture intact. Also, some shampoos will have keratin infused in them. These are great as long as they don’t contain sulphate,” they stated.Also, though there are no hard and fast rules before getting the keratin treatment done, it’s still better if you don’t have any metallic dyes or henna coating on your hair as that doesn’t get you the great results. However, post treatments, you need to take care of a few things for two days — like don’t tie your hair back, stay away from heat and sweat and other little things. Avoiding such factors would help you to get the best results.Also, it is vital that after the treatment, you only use sulphate-free shampoos and the shampoos that are specially created for post-keratin treatment. Doing so elongates the life of the treatment and gives you frizz free hair for a longer period,” said an expert.
