Photograph: Spavor Family Handout/Reuters Canadian citizen Michael Spavor has expressed joy at being reunited with his family after being released from jail in China last week. “I’m overjoyed to be finally reunited with my family. It’s humbling as I begin to understand the continued support that we’ve received from Canadians and those around the world, thank you,” Spavor said on Friday in a first statement since his release. Businessman Spavor and Canadian former diplomat Michael Kovrig were released last week after being detained by Chinese authorities just days after Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou’s arrest in Vancouver in December 2018. They were released within hours of Meng reaching a deal with US prosecutors to end the bank fraud case against her, after being held for more than 1,000 days. Beijing has denied that their arrests were linked. Spavor was accused of supplying photographs of military view it equipment to Kovrig and sentenced in August to 11 years in jail. Kovrig had been awaiting sentencing. The two men’s families have said they were innocent.https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/oct/02/im-overjoyed-canadian-michael-spavor-speaks-out-after-china-release

Even after being severely injured in the line of duty when he was hit by a car, he continued to serve. He always showed great devotion to the community, and we are grateful for his service. Jim Pletcher - Of his own accord, Jim has collected trash and debris and cleaned up along Ammon Road between 1st and 17th Street on several occasions. Those who know Jim know that he serves everywhere he goes. Jim is also a Navy veteran, having served honorably in Vietnam. Jim cares deeply about the Ammon and Idaho Falls communities and is an asset to our whole area. Sarah Jones - Sarah serves on Ammon's Planning and Zoning Commission, and has also served on the Ammon Parks and Recreation Committee. She gives a lot of her time toward improving Ammon, and frequently volunteers to help with causes which benefit the residents of Ammon. She always serves with a smile, and we are grateful for her example. Glenn Roth - Glenn has led efforts on the Ammon Pool Committee. Glenn has recognized the need for Ammon to move forward with analyzing future solutions for the Ammon Pool, and has spent many hours collecting survey results and learning about pool funding opportunities. We greatly appreciate Glenn's work in leading Ammon toward a new city pool. Brandi Johnson - Brandi has given much of her time assisting with the Ammon Pool Committee. Her work has helped to bring awareness to the Ammon pool needs, and she has spent many hours in fundraising efforts to assist with a feasibility study on a new pool. Thanks to Brandi for serving for the benefit of the community. Joe Belnap - Joe has been a leader in the great success of Ammon Little League, which has seen a sharp increase in youth participation over the past two years. Ammon Little League would not be where it is today without the dedication of Joe Belnap.https://localnews8.com/news/local-news/2021/10/16/2021-ammon-mayors-community-service-awards/

Most prior work on active cancellation assumes no cooperation from the cellular networks; this work studies how the telescope and cellular network could work together to improve cancellation performance. “While previous research usually measured the interfering signals at the telescope site, our project measures the interfering signals at their transmission location,” said Saha, co-principal investigator and assistant professor at CEAS. “Our work characterizes the interference in the digital domain of the transmitter — these attributes of the approach give a clearer picture of the interfering signals at much less cost, but also create challenges that the project will seek to overcome.” “CEAS faculty continue to expand their partnerships and the scope of their investigations, in keeping with our mission of ‘Science in Service to Society’,” said Kim L. Boyer, Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “The work of Profs. Dutta and Saha will, of course, improve imaging conditions for researchers in radioastronomy. But the implications of their work go well beyond to the intelligent mitigation of electromagnetic interference in a wide array of domains, promising improved wireless connectivity and spectral efficiency everywhere.” Dutta and Saha’s research will focus on active interference cancellation at the telescope supported by bidirectional collaboration between the telescope and neighboring cellular networks. Key aspects of the study aim to characterize cellular system signals using software running inside the cellular base stations that analyzes the digital representation of the transmissions, and decompose the cellular signals at the base stations into an orthogonal stochastic component representation employing a neural network architecture for computational efficiency. It will also focus on intelligently aggregate information about multiple emitters in the cellular network using topology-aware distributed learning, and perform the same decomposition on the astronomical signal at the telescope then combine it with the aggregated information about the cellular signals to cancel the interference.https://spotlightnews.com/thespot/2021/10/16/weve-got-a-bad-connection-here/
Scientists Face a Third Round of Charges by Mexican Government Nearly three dozen of Mexico’s leading researchers are being accused of money laundering, embezzlement, and organized crime, a move other academics say is politically motivated. A third petition by Mexican prosecutors to convict 31 prominent researchers escalates the conflict between the Mexican government’s National Council of Science and Technology and the Scientific and Technological Consultative Forum , an independent advisory board on which the accused scientists serve. Many of the country’s academics say the charges are unfounded and an act of political persecution, reports Times Higher Education . Judith Mariscal, a telecommunications researcher at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas, tells the outlet that “Academic freedom is at stake.” According to The Wall Street Journal , a federal judge twice denied arrest warrants brought forward by Mexico’s attorney general Alejandro Gertz Manero, citing insufficient evidence that the scientists illegally embezzled $12 million in government funds. This time around, charges of money laundering and organized crime were also brought forward. The scientists deny the accusations and state that all spending was legally assessed and approved by the current administration. José Franco, the chief astronomy researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, tells the Journal that “The financial reports of the committee are public and available on its website. [The National Council of Science and Technology] nevertheless has chosen to pursue unfounded criminal charges, which speaks volumes of their intent.” These serious accusations over use of research funding arose from disputes between María Elena Álvarez-Buylla, who was appointed director of Mexico’s National Council for Science and Technology by President Andrés López Obrador, and the independent advisory panel, which was created by a 2002 law to serve as an impartial liaison between government officials and the research community. In her tenure, Álvarez-Buylla has encouraged research funding cuts, limited scholarships for overseas study, and criticized scientists’ work as “neoliberal science” that lacks meaningful impact, reports Times Higher Education. Irma Beatriz Rumbos Pellicer, a mathematician at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México, tells Times Higher Education that the attempted arrests are a shock to local researchers, adding that “these ridiculous charges are meant to intimidate the academic community.” Julia Tagüeña Parga, a physicist at the National Autonomous University of Mexico who served as head of the independent scientific advisory panel from 2019-2020, tells the Journal that “Those behind the accusations are doing a great disservice to the government, and to the country.” According to the Journal, President Lopez Obrador continues to defend his appointee and the National Council of Science and Technology, claiming evidence of blackmail and extravagant spending on luxuries as justification for the arrests. If the scientists are convicted, they will be incarcerated for over 80 years at Altiplano, a maximum-security prison where drug lords and other notorious criminals are sent.https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/scientists-face-a-third-round-of-charges-by-mexican-government-69318
