We show that for $X$ compact ${T_2}:\left ( i \right )d\left ( X \right ) \leqslant s\left ( X \right ) \cdot \hat F\left ( X \right )$; (ii) if the pair $\left ( {\kappa ,\hat F\left ( X \right )} \right )$ is a caliber of $X$ then $\pi \left ( X \right ) < \kappa$. These strengthen results of Šapirovskii from [3 and 5], respectively. Moreover, (i) settles a problem raised in [2] implying that there are no compact ${T_2}$ $\kappa$-examples for any singular cardinal $\kappa$.
