Dr. Dre made the official announcement this morning via Instagram. News Twitter Facebook Continuing the elongated marketing campaign that’s been grabbing headlines since late this past summer, the video announcement came in the form of a advertising spot with an actor presenting an apparent testimonial for a spoof pharmaceutical aimed a treating the fake disease “Atrox Rithimus.”Partway through the video, the actor reveals what pretty much everyone who’s been following the campaign had already figured out: Yes, Revival is actually the name of Eminem’s new album, and no, we’re not going to get any additional details on it before it comes out. (The latter piece of info came packaged with a bit of Eminem’s signature irreverent humor).Revival will hit store shelves and streaming services on Dec. 15.Miguel To Embark On North American TourRead more

Taliban fighters in the southern Afghan province of Helmand attacked a checkpoint with silenced weapons and hand grenades early on Tuesday killing 12 policemen and stealing weapons and ammunition, officials said.But a provincial official said that it could be an insider attack as one of the guards was still missing.”An investigation is ongoing to find out if someone from inside has defected to the Taliban and paved the way for this crime,” he said.The attack, in the provincial capital Lashkar Gah, underlined the threat facing Afghan security forces in the opium-producing province, where they struggle to match well-equipped Taliban fighters who now control several districts.The police killed in the attack had been pulled back from the southern district of Khanshin district which security forces abandoned last year.”The Taliban attacked a guard with silenced guns and then entered the check post,” Helmand deputy police chief Haji Gulai told reporters.”They attacked other policemen with hand grenades and killed all of them. They later took their weapons and ammunition and escaped.” he said.In a separate incident, another 12 policemen were killed in the Marjah district of Helmand after an hour-long gunbattle, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said.Taliban fighters now control most of Helmand, including areas in Lashkar Gah. British and US forces suffered their heaviest casualties of the war in the province in years of fighting following the removal of the Taliban in 2001.Afghan security forces now control less than 60 per cent of the country, according to US estimates, with the Taliban in control of about 10 per cent and the remainder contested between government and insurgent forces.

Citation: Sign language puzzle solved (2009, December 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-12-language-puzzle.html More information: Frequency of Occurrence and Information Entropy of American Sign Language, Andrew Chong, Lalitha Sankar, H. Vincent Poor (Princeton University); arXiv:0912.1768; arxiv.org/abs/0912.1768 Sign languages such as American Sign Language (ASL) use hand gestures to indicate words, and are used by millions of deaf people around the world for communication. In American Sign Language every sign is made up a combination of hand gestures and handshapes. (The sign language for British English is quite different to ASL, and the two sign languages are not mutually intelligible.)Scientists Andrew Chong and colleagues at Princeton University in New Jersey have been studying the empirical entropy and redundancy in American Sign Language handshapes to find an answer to the puzzle. The term entropy is used in the research as a measure of the average information content of a unit of data. The fundamental unit of data of ASL is the handshape, while for spoken languages the fundamental units are phonemes. A handshape is a specific movement of the hand and specific location of the hand.Their results show that the information contained in the 45 handshapes making up the American Sign Language is higher than the amount of information contained in phonemes. This means spoken English has more redundancy than the signed equivalent.The researchers reached this conclusion by measuring the frequency of handshapes in videos of signing uploaded by deaf people to websites YouTube, DeafRead, and DeafVideo.tv, and videos of conversations in sign language recorded on campus. They discovered that the entropy (information content) of the handshapes averages at 0.5 bits per shape less than the theoretical maximum, while the entropy per phoneme in speech is around three bits below the maximum possible.This means that even though making the signs for words is slower, signers can keep up with speakers because the low redundancy rate compensates for the slower rate of signing. Chong believes the signed language has less redundancy than the spoken language because less is needed. The redundancy in spoken language allows speech to be understood in a noisy environment, but Chong explains the “visual channel is less noisy than the auditory channel”, so there is less chance of being misunderstood.The researchers speculated that errors are dealt with differently in signing and speaking. If hand gestures are not understood, difficulties can be overcome by slowing the transition between them, but if speech is not understood speaking phonemes for longer times does not always solve the difficulty.Understanding sign language and its information content is essential if automated sign recognition technology is to develop, and the language needs to be understood to allow sign language to be encoded and transmitted electronically by means other than video recordings.
