We analyze the dynamics of entanglement and quantum discord in a two-qubit system coupled to squeezed reservoirs. We present analytical expressions that can be used to efficiently calculate the evolution of quantum discord and entanglement between the two qubits. Our results show that quantum discord is a more general and robust measure of quantum correlations than entanglement. Furthermore, there is a relationship between the time before sudden death of entanglement and the reservoir squeezing angle. Additionally, the increase of squeezing angle accelerates the decay of quantum discord. These results provide new avenues for controlling quantum correlations and designing quantum states that can be used for various quantum computing applications.

Salah Arafa is a Professor in School of Sciences and Engineering in Americal University of Cairo, Egypt.
We are constantly exposed to radiations from a variety of naturally occurring and human-produced sources. These radiations can affect atoms in solids as well as cells in living organisms. The paper discusses how radiation can ionize atoms, molecules or break chemical bonds, which damages the molecules and causes malfunctions in cell processes. Radiation can also create reactive hydroxyl radicals that damage biological molecules and disrupt physiological processes. It can cause somatic or genetic damage, and is most harmful to rapidly reproducing cells. Types of radiation differ in their ability to penetrate material and damage tissue, with alpha particles the least penetrating but potentially most damaging and gamma rays the most penetrating.The paper shows that there exists various devices and dosimeters which are used to detect and measure radiation, and monitor radiation exposure which can cause a wide range of health effects, from minor to severe, and including death. All radioactive particles and waves, from the entire electromagnetic spectrum, to alpha, beta, and gamma particles, possess the ability to eject electrons from atoms and molecules to create ions, chemical reactions and damage. We can minimize the effects of radiation by shielding with dense materials such as lead, moving away from the source, and limiting time of exposure.
Distinguished Researcher, UK

Biezanek has the same qualifications for his work as Albert Einstein had in 1905, in a word, none at all. Except perhaps that Biezanek obtained a first class honours degree in electrical and electronic engineering in 1973 while Einstein had nothing but an almost failed high school science teachers certificate. This kind of work has nothing to do with such formal qualifications. As Einstein reported and Biezanek also confirms, one must start out by unlearning everything.
The author started work upon this subject in 2007, 12-years ago. He recognised at the start that the mainstream of physics teaching was failing to connect up the dots between classical views of physics after Newton as modified by Einstein’s special and general relativity with the more rigorous science of quantum physics, So he tried the different approach of going back to first principles in everything and seeking the error. The error was found in Albert Einstein’s retention of classical units within his equations for relativity. For example; Einstein retains the metre to express a “speed-of-light” in metres per second, while it turns out from diligent observational work by Clauser and Freedman (USA 1972) and Alain Aspect (France, ongoing) demonstrating instant action at a distance with entangled quanta, that the metre is an inadmissible unit that has no proper applicability within a correct appreciation of relativity. The equations that Einstein gave us were correct within the terms that he stated them, but classical measurement units are insufficiently rigorous for fully connecting the real world of the quanta with the illusions seen and experienced within our macro world of classical physics. In the author’s opinion, this is the most dramatic and far reaching insight ever achieved within our progress towards a better fundamental understanding of the real physical nature of our universe. This discovery makes it much easier for students to understand atomic physics.
