Lady Gaga’s ex-fiance Christian Carino might have sparked a new controversy after liking Bradley Cooper’s ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk’s sultry pictures on Instagram! For those who have been living under a rock, Russian supermodel Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper have called off their four-year-long relationship. It has been less than a week since news of the same has been dropped. However, it looks like the two are already living their individual lives with Cooper being spotted hanging out with Lady Gaga while Shayk took a trip. And now, it seems like Gaga’s ex has been found ‘liking’ Irina’s posts on Instagram.Coincidence? Well, we’ll let you guys decide that. Basically, Irina took to Instagram to share some really gorgeous pictures of herself being surrounded by scenic greenery and a stunning waterfall. As she donned a lovely Intimissimi black bodysuit, we are not the only ones she managed to woo with her panache. Turns out even Lady Gaga’s ex Christian Carino has expressed his ‘like’ for Shayk’s pictures. Right post Irina and Bradley’s breakup, Carino liked Irina’s two pictures. Now we give Carino the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he just admired the scenic wonderment or maybe he actually does like the scenic picture. Whatever might the case be, he seems to have gotten everyone’s attention. Irina Shayk’s post on Instagram InstagramThe fact that he was engaged to Lady Gaga, who split from him earlier this year and with Bradley and Irina calling it quits, we can’t help but wonder. Despite being together for four years, the couple couldn’t work it out as a source told E! News, “They tried to work things out for a while, but it just became clear that the relationship was over. As much as they tried to rekindle what they once had, they couldn’t find that spark. They both want what’s best for their daughter and so far things are amicable. They’re working out custody details and putting everything in writing so there’s no confusion.” Lady Gaga’s post on Instagram InstagramPeople also reported the breakup and a source told them that news of Bradley’s proximity with his A Star is Born co-star Lady Gaga didn’t help. “The rumours about Bradley and Gaga having a love affair didn’t help especially with his constant travels [promoting the film]. He has a huge and overwhelming connection to Gaga, but whether it becomes a real love story in their lives for all the world to see is premature, and it’s difficult to speculate at this sensitive time.” Another source has told The Sun that, “There’s no way Gaga and Bradley will get together. Not now—they’re really good friends and still speak all the time, but it’s not his style to jump into another relationship straight away. Especially after all the rumours about them during A Star Is Born. He wouldn’t do that.”

Lett. 110, 127202 (2013) DOI:10.1103/PhysRevLett.110.127202AbstractAn electromechanical resonator harboring an atomlike spectrum of discrete mechanical vibrations, namely, phonon modes, has been developed. A purely mechanical three-mode system becomes available in the electromechanical atom in which the energy difference of the two higher modes is resonant with a long-lived lower mode. Our measurements reveal that even an incoherent input into the higher mode results in coherent emission in the lower mode that exhibits all the hallmarks of phonon lasing in a process that is reminiscent of Brillouin lasing.

One thing they all have in common, is that they are based on photon emissions. There are other kinds of similar devices, of course, such as masers, which are based on microwave radiation, but they are not as well known. More lately, research has focused on lasers based on sound, which would emit phonons (lattice vibrations) instead of photons, an idea that’s been thrown around for several years, but hasn’t gotten much traction because the uses for such a laser are still unclear.Back in 2010 a team of researchers succeeded in building a phonon laser (or phaser, as some have taken to calling it) but it relied on the use of an optical laser. In this new effort, the research team has built a phonon laser that is purely mechanical, which the team says, should make it easier to implement in other systems should a reason for doing so be found.Photon lasers work by exciting electrons in a crystal or gas, then allowing them to revert to a more relaxed state. When they do so, a certain wavelength of light is released which is focused using mirrors.To build their phonon laser, the team followed the same basic design—a mechanical oscillator excites some amount of phonons, which are then allowed to revert back to a relaxed state. But the energy is still in the system—it causes the device to vibrate at a desired frequency within a very narrow wavelength, making it a lasing device. The entire laser has been etched onto a single integrated circuit.While researchers still aren’t clear to what purpose such a laser might be put, especially in light of the fact that phonons require a transmission medium to work, that hasn’t stopped them from proceeding. When the photon laser was first developed, no one knew what to do with it either. The researchers suggest that phonon lasers might be used to build a tiny clock, or as part of ultrasound machines or even as a very highly accurate measuring device. (Phys.org) —Researchers working at Japan’s NTT Basic Research Laboratories have successfully built an all mechanical phonon laser. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the team describes how they built a phonon laser without using any optical parts by basing it on a traditional optical laser design.
