Summary:
Transparent ceramics are defined as inorganic, nonmetallic polycrystalline materials that transmit light with wavelengths in the visible electromagnetic spectrum. A ceramic is considered transparent when its real in-line transmission (RIT) is 60% or higher at wavelengths between 300 nanometers (nm) and 800 nm in samples that have a minimum thickness of 0.8 mm. In recent years, the definition has expanded to include materials that also allow light with wavelengths in the ultraviolet and infrared regions of the spectrum to pass through. The following table shows the RIT values for some of the typical transparent ceramics and for three single crystals for comparison.

    What do the world’s most successful people do when it’s time to retire?

    When Thomas Schreier Jr. graduated from the University of Notre Dame more than three decades ago, he never envisioned that in his late 50s he'd be teaching a class there called Designing an Inspired Life and regularly walking the South Bend, Ind., campus as the founding director of the university's Inspired Leadership Initiative. The initiative, now in its second year, consists of 15 accomplished individuals who have wrapped up two or three decades in successful careers and are eager to devote an academic year to studies at Notre Dame. Notre Dame's joins similar programs at prominent institutions pioneering this concept: the Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute, operated in partnership with the Stanford Center on Longevity, and Harvard's Advanced Leadership Initiative, a yearlong program for corporate executives and professionals interested in applying their skills to social problems.

    U.S. weighs blocking GE engine sales for China's new airplane - sources

    The potential restriction on the engine sales - possibly along with limits on other components for Chinese commercial aircraft such as flight control systems made by Honeywell International Inc - is the latest move in the battle between the world's two largest economies over trade and technology. The issue is expected to come up at an interagency meeting about how strictly to limit exports of U.S. technology to China on Thursday and at another meeting with members of President Donald Trump's Cabinet set for Feb. 28, sources said. The White House and the U.S. Commerce Department, which issues licenses for such exports, declined to comment, as did a GE spokeswoman.

    Here’s how one ‘black swan’ investor is protecting his $5 billion fund against a market crash that ‘won’t be pretty’

    “Really explosive downside protection is really the only risk mitigation that's able to move the needle for people, because it's the only risk mitigation that doesn't cost you as you are waiting for it to happen,” Spitznagel said. In other words, his fund provides crash insurance so his clients can take on more “systemic risk” with their other investments. Spitznagel, a former trader, is a protégé of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the author of the 2007 bestseller, “The Black Swan,” which is a metaphor used to describe unpredictable, highly disruptive events — the kind that could blow up markets.

    China Stocks Rebound From Sell-off That Erased $720 Billion

    China's stock benchmark recouped all its losses from a record $720 billion sell-off earlier this month, a sign that investor confidence is improving after policy makers acted to ease the economic fallout from the coronavirus outbreak. The CSI 300 Index added as much as 1.2% Monday, surpassing its 4,003.9-point close from Jan. 23, the last trading day before a Lunar New Year break that saw a surge in virus infections. The index plunged 7.9% on Feb. 3 as Chinese markets reopened to a health crisis that paralyzed most of the world's second-largest economy.

    Asia's markets saw a mixed start to the week, with China's stocks and the yuan taking encouragement from pledges to support the nation's economy, and Japanese equities declining after a deep contraction in GDP. China's CSI 300 Index recouped all of its losses since trading resumed after the Lunar New Year break, with the central bank lowering one of its interest rates and saying it would support firms that can restart production as soon as possible. U.S. futures also climbed, and the strong China open helped limit losses in Japan.

    China said the number of coronavirus cases climbed above 70,000 as the province at the epicenter of the outbreak reported 1,933 new infections, slightly higher than a day earlier. The head of a Wuhan hospital said a turning point has been reached as new cases fell over the weekend, but the outlook was more cautionary outside of China. The head of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said the outbreak is on the verge of a global pandemic if containment steps fail to show more success.

    Tesla ordered by German court to stop cutting down trees for Gigafactory

    A German court on Sunday ordered Tesla Inc to stop clearing forest land near the capital Berlin to build its first European car and battery factory, a victory for local environmental activists. The U.S. electric carmaker announced plans last November to build a Gigafactory in Gruenheide in the eastern state of Brandenburg. The court ruling, by the higher administrative court of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg, comes after the state environmental office gave a green light to clear 92 hectares of forest for the plant.

    Afraid of sky-high stock valuations? Consider this ‘deep value’ strategy

    There's no shortage of arguments that the U.S. stock market, whose main benchmark indexes are at record highs, is overvalued. If your investment portfolio is concentrated in an index fund, you might feel you are properly diversified, but there's a good chance your risk is concentrated among a short list of companies. Jim Roumell, the founder of Roumell Asset Management of Chevy Chase, Md., and manager of the Roumell Opportunistic Value Fund (RAMSX) offers an investment strategy that is truly different: A balanced fund that takes concentrated positions in micro-cap companies that he argues are grossly undervalued.
