The two techniques for accessing the electro-magnetic spectrum, optical and electrical, fall short of entry into the Terahertz range. But a Cleveland company has developed the first portable, high-power source that could open up the Terahertz gap to a wide range of technical advances.
Ohio is emerging as a global center of research in a branch of physics that’s stymied scientists for decades. It’s called Terahertz radiation, a band of light waves with potential uses that range from detecting cancer to uncovering art forgeries. One Cleveland company has recently had a breakthrough in one of technology’s final frontiers.
The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments this week about traffic cameras. The case in Toledo is one of a slew of legal challenges to cities using cameras to catch and ticket drivers for running red lights or speeding.
Motorists also filed lawsuits last week against the Dayton suburbs of Trotwood and West Carollton. That brings the number of legal cases against cameras around the state to at least eight.
CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio officials have appealed a federal judge's order to recognize the marriages of gay couples who wed in other states.
The state attorney general's office filed a notice of appeal with the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati on Friday. The state is appealing federal Judge Timothy Black's ruling ordering Ohio to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples that were performed in other states.
Most of Black's April 14 ruling was put on hold pending the anticipated appeal.
The state of Ohio is closer to having an official official rock song. Just after the Ohio State University marching band deliberately stomped into and out of the House chamber Wednesday, representatives passed legislation making “Hang On Sloopy” the state’s official rock song.
Democrat Michael Stinziano of Columbus co-sponsored the bill, which he says came about when he heard it was the state official song only by resolution, not by law. To be sure, he consulted the man who came up with the resolution when he held that seat—his father Mike Stinziano.
