Classical Kuiper belt object

A classical Kuiper belt object called a cubewano, is a low-eccentricity Kuiper belt object that orbits beyond Neptune and is not controlled by an orbital resonance with Neptune. Cubewanos have orbits with semi-major axes in the 40–50 AU range and, unlike Pluto, do not cross Neptune's orbit; that is, they have low-eccentricity and sometimes low-inclination orbits like the classical planets. The name "cubewano" derives from the first trans-Neptunian object found after Pluto and Charon, 15760 Albion, which until January 2018 had only had the provisional designation 1992 QB1. Similar objects found were called "QB1-o's", or "cubewanos", after this object, though the term "classical" is much more used in the scientific literature. Objects identified as cubewanos include: 15760 Albion 136472 Makemake, the largest known cubewano and a dwarf planet 50000 Quaoar and 20000 Varuna, each considered the largest TNO at the time of discovery 19521 Chaos, 58534 Logos, 53311 Deucalion, 66652 Borasisi, 88611 Teharonhiawako 1997 CU29, 2002 TX300, 2002 AW197, 2002 UX25 486958 Arrokoth136108 Haumea was provisionally listed as a cubewano by the Minor Planet Center in 2006, but was found to be in a resonant orbit.

There are two basic dynamical classes of classical Kuiper-belt bodies: those with unperturbed orbits, those with markedly perturbed orbits. Most cubewanos are found between the 2:3 orbital resonance with the 1:2 resonance. 50000 Quaoar, for example, has a near-circular orbit close to the ecliptic. Plutinos, on the other hand, have more eccentric orbits bringing some of them closer to the Sun than Neptune; the majority of classical objects, the so-called cold population, have low inclinations and near-circular orbits, lying between 42 and 47 AU. A smaller population is characterised by inclined, more eccentric orbits; the terms'hot' and'cold' has nothing to do with surface or internal temperatures. Instead, the terms'hot and'cold' refer to the orbits of the objects, by analogy to particles in a gas, which increase their relative velocity as they become heated up; the Deep Ecliptic Survey reports the distributions of the two populations. The vast majority of KBOs have inclinations of less than 5° and eccentricities of less than 0.1.

Their semi-major axes show a preference for the middle of the main belt. The'hot' and'cold' populations are strikingly different: more than 30% of all cubewanos are in low inclination, near-circular orbits; the parameters of the plutinos’ orbits are more evenly distributed, with a local maximum in moderate eccentricities in 0.15–0.2 range, low inclinations 5–10°. See the comparison with scattered disk objects; when the orbital eccentricities of cubewanos and plutinos are compared, it can be seen that the cubewanos form a clear'belt' outside Neptune's orbit, whereas the plutinos approach, or cross Neptune's orbit. When orbital inclinations are compared,'hot' cubewanos can be distinguished by their higher inclinations, as the plutinos keep orbits below 20°. In addition to the distinct orbital characteristics, the two populations display different physical characteristics; the difference in colour between the red cold population, such as 486958 Arrokoth, more heterogeneous hot population was observed as early as in 2002.

Recent studies, based on a larger data set, indicate the cut-off inclination of 12° between the cold and hot populations and confirm the distinction between the homogenous red cold population and the bluish hot population. Another difference between the low-inclination and high-inclination classical objects is the observed number of binary objects. Binaries are quite common on low-inclination orbits and are similar-brightness systems. Binaries are less common on high-inclination orbits and their components differ in brightness; this correlation, together with the differences in colour, support further the suggestion that the observed classical objects belong to at least two different overlapping populations, with different physical properties and orbital history. There is no official definition of'cubewano' or'classical KBO'. However, the terms are used to refer to objects free from significant perturbation from Neptune, thereby excluding KBOs in orbital resonance with Neptune; the Minor Planet Center and the Deep Ecliptic Survey do not list cubewanos using the same criteria.

Many TNOs classified as cubewanos by the MPC are classified as ScatNear by the DES. Dwarf planet Makemake is such a borderline classical cubewano/scatnear object. 2002 KX14 may be an inner cubewano near the plutinos. Furthermore, there is evidence that the Kuiper belt has an'edge', in that an apparent lack of low-inclination objects beyond 47–49 AU was suspected as early as 1998 and shown with more data in 2001; the traditional usage of the terms is based on the orbit's semi-major axis, includes objects situated between the 2:3 and 1:2 resonances, between 39.4 and 47.8 AU. These definitions lack precision: in particular the boundary between the classical objects and the scattered disk

Ninja Lipsy

Tendazvaitwa Medea Chitimbe is a Zimbabwean dancehall musician who adopted the moniker ‘Ninja Lady’ from her boss and mentor Winky D, called Ninja President by his legion of fans. She first rose to fame after featuring in Winky D's song Taitirana paFirst Sight in 2011. Lipsy was born in 1987 in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, she attended Mbizi Primary School, one of the oldest and best primary schools in Harare's Old Highfields Suburb and Highfield 2 High School, she started her musical career as early as 2002 and joined Vigilance Records in 2009. While at Vigilance Records, she did a track ‘Taitirana’ with renowned dancehall artist Winky D; the collaboration made her to become popular. She has released songs such as ‘Kumaninja’ and ‘Mababie Anoita’. In February 2015, Ninja Lipsy was nominated for two awards in the 2014 Zimdancehall Awards. In 2018 Ninja Lipsy made waves with Pfee, a song she did on the Avion Riddim produced by Levels of Chillspot Records and DJ Tamuka from the Jah Prayzah lead Military Touch Productions.

She dismissed rumours about the song being a political endorsement of Emerson Munangagwa saying while the title was open to various interpretations, it was not political. Pfee, a Shona idiophone that describes sudden action, was popularised as a Zanu PF slogan; the song has attracted mixed reactions from listeners, with others saying it had political connotations, while others felt it carried sexual innuendo. "I talk about a driver. Others describe the song in a sexual manner but, well, it is for the listeners to give meaning to the song.” “We have worked together with Tamuka as a collective with other artistes, but this was the first time we worked together without anyone else. The song was his idea, he just shared the concept with me. I sampled the beat, wrote the lyrics and recorded in one day,” she said. In 2018 Lipsy decided to come out and tell the world about her medical condition in a lengthy Facebook post, she told of how society had shunned her and how she had lost friends because of the epilepsy. and it has impacted on her career making it hard to perform at times.

“Other musicians shying to disclose their medical conditions need to understand that we are the people’s voice and our job is to entertain and learn at the same time. So they need to speak out and share what they go through from what they know,” said Lipsy Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of recurrent unprovoked seizures. A person is diagnosed with epilepsy if they have two unprovoked seizures that were not caused by some known and reversible medical condition like alcohol withdrawal or low blood sugar.

Singapore national basketball team

The Singapore national basketball team is the national team for Singapore in basketball. It is managed by the Basketball Association of Singapore the Singapore Amateur Basketball Association. At the Asian Basketball Championship, the country had its greatest success between 1971 and 1993 when it qualified for 12 straight events. Since 2001, the team has been one of the contenders at the Southeast Asian Basketball Championship. There, the team has won two bronze medals to date. In 1956, the team qualified for the Summer Olympics where it finished ahead of Asian rivals South Korea and Thailand. On 5 June 2009, a "quiet revolution" took place in Singapore national men's basketball team; the team representing Singapore was replaced by young talents of the likes of Wei Jian Hong, Steven Khoo, Desmond Oh and Wei Long Wong, with only two senior players from the old squad retained: Pathman Matialakan and Michael Wong. Most of the national team players now play for the Singapore Slingers, the island's only professional basketball club.

The Singapore Men's National team left for the 2011 SEA Games having had the best preparation for a major tournament in the past 5 years. On 30 September to 1 October 2011, represented by most of the national team players, the Singapore Slingers was invited for the inaugural Cable Beach Invitational at Broome, where they played the Perth Wildcats and the Indonesia national basketball team. On 5 October 2011, the National team proceeded to play the Perth Redbacks of the Australian SBL. From 25–31 October 2011, the team competed in the 4th China-Asean Invitational Tournament, of which they finished 3rd overall in the competition. After disappointing close losses to Malaysia and Indonesia, the team finished 5th at the 2011 Southeast Asian Games. Singapore roster at the 2019 SEA Games Roster at the 2019 SEA Games.
