Arkansas is a state in the south central region of the United States, home to more than three million people as of 2018. Its name is from the Osage language, of Siouan derivation; the state's diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozark and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U. S. Interior Highlands, to the densely forested land in the south known as the Arkansas Timberlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta. Arkansas is the 33rd most populous of the 50 United States; the capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state, a hub for transportation, business and government. The northwestern corner of the state, such as the Fayetteville–Springdale–Rogers Metropolitan Area and Fort Smith metropolitan area, is a population and economic center; the largest city in the state's eastern part is Jonesboro. The largest city in the state's southeastern part is Pine Bluff; the Territory of Arkansas was admitted to the Union as the 25th state on June 15, 1836.

Much of the Delta had been developed for cotton plantations, the state landowners depended on enslaved African Americans as workers. In 1861, Arkansas seceded from the United States and joined the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. On returning to the Union in 1868, the state continued to suffer due to its reliance on the large-scale plantation economy. Cotton continued as the leading commodity crop; because farmers and businessmen did not diversify and there was little industrial investment, the state fell behind in terms of its economy and opportunities for residents. White rural interests dominated the state's politics by disenfranchisement of African Americans and by refusal to reapportion the legislature, it was not until after the civil rights movement and federal intervention that more African Americans were able to vote. The Supreme Court overturned rural domination in the South and other states that had refused to reapportion their state legislatures, or retained rules based on geographic districts.

In the landmark ruling of one man, one vote, it ruled that states had to organize both houses of their legislatures by districts that held equal populations, that these had to be redefined as necessary after each decade's census. Following World War II, Arkansas began to diversity its economy. In the 21st century, its economy is based on service industries, poultry and tourism, along with important commodity crops of cotton and rice; the culture of Arkansas is observable in museums, novels, television shows and athletic venues across the state. Notable people from the state include educational advocate William Fulbright; the name Arkansas was applied to the Arkansas River. It derives from a French term, their plural term for their transliteration of akansa, an Algonquian term for the Quapaw people; these were a Dhegiha Siouan-speaking people. Akansa is also the root term for Kansas; the name has been spelled in a variety of fashions. In 1881, the state legislature defined the official pronunciation of Arkansas as having the final "s" be silent.

A dispute had arisen between the state's two senators over the pronunciation issue. One favored pronunciation as AR-kən-saw while the other favored ar-KAN-zəs. In 2007, the state legislature passed a non-binding resolution declaring that the possessive form of the state's name is Arkansas's, followed by the state government. Arkansas borders Louisiana to the south, Texas to the southwest, Oklahoma to the west, Missouri to the north, Tennessee and Mississippi to the east; the United States Census Bureau classifies Arkansas as a southern state, sub-categorized among the West South Central States. The Mississippi River forms most of Arkansas's eastern border, except in Clay and Greene, counties where the St. Francis River forms the western boundary of the Missouri Bootheel, in many places where the channel of the Mississippi has meandered from its original 1836 course. Arkansas can be split into two halves, the highlands in the northwest half and the lowlands of the southeastern half; the highlands are part of the Southern Interior Highlands, including The Ozarks and the Ouachita Mountains.

The southern lowlands include the Arkansas Delta. This dual split can yield to general regions named northwest, northeast, southeast, or central Arkansas; these directionally named regions are broad and not defined along county lines. Arkansas has seven distinct natural regions: the Ozark Mountains, Ouachita Mountains, Arkansas River Valley, Gulf Coastal Plain, Crowley's Ridge, the Arkansas Delta, with Central Arkansas sometimes included as a blend of multiple regions; the southeastern part of Arkansas along the Mississippi Alluvial Plain is sometimes called the Arkansas Delta. This region is a flat landscape of rich alluvial soils formed by repeated flooding of the adjacent Mississippi. Farther away from the river, in the southeast portion of the state, the Grand Prairie consists of a more undulating landscape. Both a

Naohiro Ishida

Naohiro Ishida is a Japanese professional shogi player ranked 5-dan. Ishida was born in Nayoro, Hokkaido on December 5, 1988, he learned how to play shogi at school with friends, entered the Japan Shogi Association's apprentice school at the rank of 6-kyū as a student of shogi professional Kazuharu Shoshi in 2001. Early on, Ishida remained in at home in Nayoro, living with his mother and commuting twice monthly to Tokyo by plane to participate in the apprentice school, he would attend junior high school during the week, leave school early the day before his schedule games, fly to Tokyo where he was met by his father. Who was stationed in Tokyo as a member of the Japanese Self Defense Forces. After Ishida finished his games, his father would take him to the airport for the return trip back to Hokkaido. At first, Ishida found the apprentice school quite difficult and was demoted from 6-kyū to 7-kyū because of poor results. After graduating from junior high school, he and his mother moved from Hokkaido to Tokyo and he enrolled in a local senior high school.

After graduating from senior high school, Ishida decided to continue his education at university to not only please his mother, who felt that further education would help his job prospects if he did not become a professional shogi player, but because he was interested in mathematics. He passed the entrance exam for the Department of Mathematics for the Faculty of Science and Engineering of Chuo University and began living on his own after his mother moved back to Nayoro. Nishida was promoted to the rank of 3-dan in 2008 while he was a second-year university student, but was still ranked at 3-dan as he entered his final year of university. Being around his fellow fourth-year students who were going on job interviews and participating in other job-hunting activities made him wonder if he would become a professional shogi player, his mother said he could come back to Nayoro and look for work if he wanted to after graduation if he still had not obtained professional status, but he decided to continue at the apprentice school, He obtained full professional status and the rank of 4-dan in October 2012 after finishing second in the 51st 3-dan League with a record of 13 wins and 5 losses, thus making him the fourth former student of Chuo University to become a professional shogi player.

Ishida defeated Tetsuya Fujimori 2 games to none to win the 4th Kakogawa Seiryū Tournament in 2014 for his only tournament championship. In 2016, Ishida advanced to the finals of the 47th Shinjin-Ō tournament, but was defeated by Yasuhiro Masuda 2 games to none. The promotion history for Ishida is as follows: 2001, September: 6-kyū 2008, October: 3-dan 2012, October 1: 4-dan 2017, August 15: 5-dan Ishida has yet to appear in a major title match, but he has won one non-major title championship.

Modern searches for Lorentz violation

Modern searches for Lorentz violation are scientific studies that look for deviations from Lorentz invariance or symmetry, a set of fundamental frameworks that underpin modern science and fundamental physics in particular. These studies try to determine whether violations or exceptions might exist for well-known physical laws such as special relativity and CPT symmetry, as predicted by some variations of quantum gravity, string theory, some alternatives to general relativity. Lorentz violations concern the fundamental predictions of special relativity, such as the principle of relativity, the constancy of the speed of light in all inertial frames of reference, time dilation, as well as the predictions of the standard model of particle physics. To assess and predict possible violations, test theories of special relativity and effective field theories such as the Standard-Model Extension have been invented; these models introduce Lorentz and CPT violations through spontaneous symmetry breaking caused by hypothetical background fields, resulting in some sort of preferred frame effects.

This could lead, for instance, to modifications of the dispersion relation, causing differences between the maximal attainable speed of matter and the speed of light. Both terrestrial and astronomical experiments have been carried out, new experimental techniques have been introduced. No Lorentz violations have been measured thus far, exceptions in which positive results were reported have been refuted or lack further confirmations. For discussions of many experiments, see Mattingly. For a detailed list of results of recent experimental searches, see Kostelecký and Russell. For a recent overview and history of Lorentz violating models, see Liberati. Early models assessing the possibility of slight deviations from Lorentz invariance have been published between the 1960s and the 1990s. In addition, a series of test theories of special relativity and effective field theories for the evaluation and assessment of many experiments have been developed, including: The parameterized post-Newtonian formalism is used as a test theory for general relativity and alternatives to general relativity, can be used to describe Lorentz violating preferred frame effects.

The Robertson-Mansouri-Sexl framework contains three parameters, indicating deviations in the speed of light with respect to a preferred frame of reference. The c2 framework introduces a modified dispersion relation and describes Lorentz violations in terms of a discrepancy between the speed of light and the maximal attainable speed of matter, in presence of a preferred frame. Doubly special relativity preserves the Planck length as an invariant minimum length-scale, yet without having a preferred reference frame. Special relativity describes space-time symmetries that are certain proper subgroups of the Poincaré group, it was shown that special relativity is only consistent with this scheme in the context of quantum field theory or CP conservation. Noncommutative geometry might lead to Lorentz violations. Lorentz violations are discussed in relation to Alternatives to general relativity such as Loop quantum gravity, Emergent gravity, Einstein aether theory, Hořava–Lifshitz gravity. However, the Standard-Model Extension in which Lorentz violating effects are introduced by spontaneous symmetry breaking, is used for most modern analyses of experimental results.

It was introduced by Kostelecký and colleagues in 1997 and the following years, containing all possible Lorentz and CPT violating coefficients not violating gauge symmetry. It includes not only the standard model and general relativity as well. Models whose parameters can be related to SME and thus can be seen as special cases of it, include the older RMS and c2 models, the Coleman-Glashow model confining the SME coefficients to dimension 4 operators and rotation invariance, the Gambini-Pullin model or the Myers-Pospelov model corresponding to dimension 5 or higher operators of SME. Many terrestrial experiments have been conducted with optical resonators or in particle accelerators, by which deviations from the isotropy of the speed of light are tested. Anisotropy parameters are given, by the Robertson-Mansouri-Sexl test theory; this allows for distinction between velocity dependent parameters. In modern variants of the Michelson–Morley experiment, the dependence of light speed on the orientation of the apparatus and the relation of longitudinal and transverse lengths of bodies in motion is analyzed.

Modern variants of the Kennedy–Thorndike experiment, by which the dependence of light speed on the velocity of the apparatus and the relation of time dilation and length contraction is analyzed, have been conducted. The current precision, by which an anisotropy of the speed of light can be excluded, is at the 10−17 level; this is related to the relative velocity between the solar system and the rest frame of the cosmic microwave background radiation of ∼368 km/s. In addition, the Standard-Model Extension can be used to obtain a larger number of isotropy coefficients in the photon sector, it uses the even- and odd-parity coefficients κ ~ e −, κ ~ o + and κ ~ t r {\displaystyle
