### Jyebao Introduces a Series of Phase & Amplitude Stable VNA Cables

Jyebao has released a series of highly reliable phase & amplitude stability tests & VNA cables that can withstand over 100000 flexes without degradation in VSWR, Insertion Loss (IL), phase & amplitude stability. As part of the qualification process, the 5002A, 6002A (SUPERFLEXIBLE) and PHASETEST2 (VNA) cables were submitted to a flexing endurance test conforming to IEC60966-1 section 9.3. The cable assembly was placed on a horizontal test bench keeping one connector-end fixed while the other connector-end moved back and forth in the direction of the cable axis.

### Loki makes mischievous entrance into MCU’s Phase Four

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) seems to be holding nothing back with Phase Four of the popular franchise. Marvel fans have been treated with four distinct entries so far—and the year is only half over. “WandaVision,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “Black Widow” have all been praised for providing emotional stories for some of the franchise’s underdeveloped characters. “Loki” distinguishes itself with its much more grandiose story.

### The most notorious absences in Marvel’s Phase 4

MADRID, 4 May. (CulturaOcio) – The Marvel Universe continues to expand and preara a new wave of premieres, both in film and television, for the next few years. The phase 4, which started with Scarlet Witch and Vision (WandaVision) it continues its advance towards something much, much greater. And to...

### Loki Director Says Mobius Had a Family Backstory That Might Change (Phase Zero Exclusive)

Loki's first season came to an end last week, but the show's post-credits confirmed that Tom Hiddleston would be returning for a second season. Unfortunately, director Kate Herron will be not be taking the helm of season two as she is moving on to other projects. However, it's clear Herron loved her time on the series and has been enjoying talking about it now that the season has come to an end. In fact, she recently paid a visit to ComicBook.com's Phase Zero podcast and dissected the show from start to finish. One Loki topic that came up was that of Mobius M. Mobius, the character played by Owen Wilson. Not much is known about the character before he was snatched by the TVA, but according to Herron, the show almost featured some flashes of his former life.

### FDA places clinical hold on Magenta’s Phase I/II leukaemia trial

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a clinical hold letter for Magenta Therapeutics’ investigational new drug application to conduct a Phase I/II clinical trial of MGTA-117. Magenta filed the IND last month. The trial for the treatment of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is...

### LoA Update: Janssen’s Sirturo plans hit a slump with suspension for Phase III trial in mycobacterium avium complex-lung disease

Janssen Pharmaceutical’s approval likelihood for Sirturo (bedaquiline fumarate) to treat mycobacterium avium complex-associated lung disease (MAC-LD) dropped by 27 points to 33%, as of 5 July. This was after a Phase III trial (jRCT2031200268) in that indication was suspended. Prior to the trial’s suspension, Sirturo’s Likelihood of Approval (LoA) was at 60%.

### FDA Gives OK for Viracta’s Phase Ib/II Trial of Oral Combo in Epstein-Barr Virus Tumors

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a Phase Ib/II trial of Viracta Therapeutics’ all-oral combination regimen in advanced Epstein-Barr Virus-Positive (EBV+) solid tumors. The study will also investigate the oral combination with PD-1 inhibitor pembrolizumab in EBV+ metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (RM-NPC).

### How Marvel's Phase 4 Has Significantly Changed Since Its First Announcement

Marvel Studios made a huge splash during its last appearance in San Diego Comic-Con back in 2019. It was during that event where the studio unveiled its massive Phase 4 slate which includes projects centered around the past and new heroes of the MCU. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige went...

### Landos Biopharma's Phase 2 Data Of Omilancor In Ulcerative Colitis Accepted For Oral Presentation At The United European Gastroenterology Week 2021

Omilancor shows efficacy and tolerability as a potential once-daily, oral, gut-restricted therapy for mild-to-moderate UC patients. Following the recent positive End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the FDA, Landos initiated clinical trial site feasibility studies for the planned global pivotal Phase 3 trial of omilancor in UC. BLACKSBURG, Va., July 22, 2021...

### Absence of Quantization of Zak's Phase in One-Dimensional Crystals

In this work, we derive some analytical properties of Berry's phase in one-dimensional quantum and classical crystals, also named Zak's phase. It is commonly assumed in the literature that this phase can only take the values 0 or $\pi$ for a centrosymmetric crystal, however we have found that this assumption is inaccurate and it has its origin in a wrong assumption on Zak's original paper. We provide a general demonstration that Zak's phase can take any value for a non-symmetric crystal but it is strictly zero when it is possible to find a unit cell where the periodic modulation is symmetric. We also demonstrate that Zak's phase is independent of the origin of coordinates selected to compute it. We provide numerical examples verifying this behaviour for both electronic and classical waves (acoustic or photonic). We analyze the weakest electronic potential capable of presenting asymmetry, as well as the double-Dirac delta potential, and in both examples it is found that Zak's phase varies continuously as a function of a symmetry-control parameter, but it is zero when the crystal is symmetric. For classical waves, the layered material is analyzed, and we demonstrate that we need at least three components to have a non-trivial Zak's phase, showing therefore that the binary layered material presents a trivial phase in all the bands of the dispersion diagram. This work shows that Zak's phase and its connection to edge states in one-dimensional crystals should be carefully revisited, since the assumption about its quantization has been widely used in the literature.
