Maltas interests need to take priority – Sant

first_imgAlfred Sant, Leader of the Labour Delegation of the European Parliament and a candidate for the upcoming MEPs elections, insisted that it is crucial for the deputies elected to be focused on priotising Malta’s needs and interests in the European Parliament. Sant spoke about how every deputy will need to work with diligence, honesty, and commitment.During a political activity in Naxxar, former Labour Prime Minister stated that investors need to see that Malta is flexible, and that the behaviour of the Nationalist deputies in the European Parliament has brought about critique on Malta.Women are fundamental in our country – Għaqda Nisa Laburisti Għaqda Nisa Laburisti, meanwhile, stated that women are fundamental in a country like Malta, which has the potential to be one of the best in Europe. They insisted that PN is being ruled by negativity and pessimism. This was said as a reply to Nationalist Deputy Claudette Buttigieg’s statement which said that the situation of women in Malta is the worst in Europe.WhatsApp SharePrint <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more

Rice U and Chinas Zhejiang U form research collaboration

first_imgShareCONTACT: B.J. AlmondPHONE: 713-348-6770E-MAIL: [email protected] From left, Rice President David Leebron and Zhejiang University President Yang Wei meet for a signing ceremony to establish an International Collaborative Center on Quantum Matter in the presence of faculty members from Zhejiang’s Physics Department. The center is intended to enhance the long-term international research collaborations between Rice and Zhejiang and other leading institutions in the emerging area of quantum materials and magnetism.Both universities already have strong programs in this field. In the 1970s, Rice established the Rice Quantum Institute and in 2006 added the Rice Quantum Magnetism Laboratory. In 2007, China’s Ministry of Education recognized Zhejiang University’s theoretical physics and condensed matter physics as “National Key Subjects.”“Rice and Zhejiang University excel in science and technology, and combining the two institutions’ expertise in quantum matter will be a powerful international collaboration that will advance this important research for the benefit of people in both of our home countries and around the world,” Rice President David Leebron said from the Zhejiang campus in Hangzhou, China, where the agreement was signed.The electronic and physical properties of materials like superconductors derive from interactions at the smallest scale — the quantum level. By studying these interactions, scientists can better understand the materials needed for next-generation computing, communications and energy technology. The collaboration is another step forward for Leebron’s Vision for the Second Century, which includes extending Rice’s international reach and impact and developing new research collaborations. The center’s office will be housed on the Zhejiang campus. Rice and Zhejiang will collaborate on research projects, conduct joint workshops and send faculty and students to each other’s campus for research.Qimiao Si, Rice professor of physics and astronomy, and Fuchun Zhang and Zhuan Su, Zhejiang physics professors, will coordinate the center’s programs on their respective campuses.
