Quotes

"Statisticians now can come up with radically different probability values for the same fingerprint," Saunders said. "We have to find a way to take raw data and turn it into probabilities. Then forensic experts wouldn't have to say 'I think' and make subjective determinations."
..."Designing three- or two-dimensional nanoantenna arrays can modify the optical wavefront with spatially-varying phase response," Ye tells Phys.org. "However, complex designs and sophisticated fabrication procedures are required. Simplifying the metastructure to one dimension is preferred for applications and large-scale production, but the structure that allows tunable parameters is limited. Therefore, the main challenges to achieve specific functions using bilayer metallic nanowire grating involve exploring and utilizing the intrinsic properties of surface plasmon waveguide, combining these with the diffraction characteristics of grating, and finding proper parameters."
...During the ceremony, Eng. Omar Al Madhi, CEO of Volkswagen Group Saudi Arabia stated in his speech: "Saudi Arabia reached a new record by importing vehicles with a value approaching 77 billion Saudi Riyals, making it the largest vehicle market in the Middlethe Middle East. Saudi Arabia imports an average of 679,000 vehicles per year, with an annual growthgrowth rate of 9.5%. Based on the Kingdom’s strong economy and with a strategic aim to benefit from the promising opportunities in this dynamic market, the Volkswagen Group opened its doors in early 2013 by establishing a local presence in the Kingdom, under the name of Volkswagen Group Saudi Arabia"
