Share your voice What it feels like to kill 563 mice for science Scientists connect a human brain and ‘rat cyborg’ brain together Rodent experiments The See-Shell could aid scientists studying human brain conditions like concussions, Alzheimer’s and degenerative conditions like Parkinson’s disease. “These are studies we couldn’t do in humans, but they are extremely important in our understanding of how the brain works so we can improve treatments for people who experience brain injuries or diseases,” says neuroscientist Timothy Ebner. Post a comment Researchers at the University of Minnesota have figured out how to open a window into the brains of mice by using a transparent skull implant. It’s called the See-Shell. “What we are trying to do is to see if we can visualize and interact with large parts of the mouse brain surface, called the cortex, over long periods of time,” says mechanical engineering professor Suhasa Kodandaramaiah, co-author of a study on the See-Shell that appeared in the journal Nature Communications on Tuesday. A spider’s erection, and other cool things trapped in amber A video released by the university shows a sped-up mouse brain scan as seen through the See-Shell. “Changes in brightness correspond to waxing and waning of neural activity. Subtle flashes are periods when the whole brain suddenly becomes active,” the school notes.The researchers digitally scan a mouse’s skull and use the data to create a matching transparent piece using a 3D printer. The skull is then surgically replaced with the See-Shell. The mouse studied by the team did not reject the implant, which allowed them to monitor its brain over several months. The researchers intend to make the See-Shell commercially available to other researchers. 20 Photos Sci-Tech Tags 0
Vijayawada : 28 illegal houses are going to receive a demolition notice from the revenue officers along with the surveyors who are measuring the extent to which the illegal buildings have been damaging the Krishna River’s water flow. CRTA officials have accompanied the officers. The contingent has started to accumulate information regarding each construction and verifiying it with the legal documents to make for a strong case. The officers allege that the houses built have gone beyond the land they’ve bought and filled the river bed with sand to support the construction of houses. Not only is this a land issue but goes against the River Conservation Act as well. Information is being collected for each house and notices are being sent out. The process is set to complete by this evening.

The logo of India’s largest e-commerce firm Flipkart is seen on the facade of the company’s headquarters in Bengaluru on July 7, 2017. REUTERS/Abhishek N ChinnappaHomegrown e-commerce giant Flipkart is in early talks to buy a large minority stake in online ticket booking company BookMyShow, as it seeks to attract more people and retain old customers.Flipkart wants to invest fresh capital into BookMyShow and also buy shares from some of its investors. But, there were no reports on the amount that Flipkart plans to invest in BookMyShow, Economic Times reported.The last round of funding for BookMyShow came from Stripes Group at Rs 550 crore, which was one of the largest funding rounds for any internet company this year. Accel Partners, SAIF Partners and Network18 also funded the company at a valuation more than Rs 3,000 crore.Accel is an investor in Flipkart as well. According to the reports, Flipkart had initially planned to buy BookMyShow. However, a stake sale is more likely than an outright sale.Reports said last month BookMyShow posted a profit of Rs 3.17 crore for the financial year 2016. But this profit came after the company reported losses for two consecutive fiscal years. It had posted Rs 13.52 crore loss in fiscal year 2015 and Rs 3.98 crore loss in FY14.The sales growth took a hit mainly because of a push by Paytm into movie tickets. But over the past few months, BookMyShow has limped back to growth and it still controls a majority of movie ticket bookings.Now, a partnership with the ticketing market leader BookMyShow will give Flipkart, which is also building its payment platform Phonepe, a big role in the ticketing market. Bookmyshow.comBookMyShow is also focusing on local language content for both its video and audio platforms to penetrate tier 2 and tier 3 cities, a move that will be helpful for Flipkart as it seeks to serve deeper in the smaller areas.Flipkart – India’s most acquisitive companyFilpkart has raised nearly $3 billion in two tranches this year from SoftBank Group Corp, Tencent Holdings and others. The online retailer plans to pursue more Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) deals.Last month, Flipkart bought F1 Info solutions, which offers repair services for mobiles and electronics, for an undisclosed amount.Flipkart is India’s most acquisitive internet firm. Since 2007, it has bought more than 20 companies. Its largest acquisition till now is that of online retailer Myntra for more than $330 million in May 2014. Earlier this year, the company also tried to buy its smaller rival Snapdeal, but the deal failed because of differences over valuation.

Recreating classic games using the Unreal Engine is something that seems to be popular these days. Earlier this week, we posted about a fan project that is recreating Metal Gear Solid using Unreal Engine 4, which looks absolutely stunning. Today, we’re showing you what one of the most beloved Zelda games would look like running on Epic’s engine.YouTube user CryZENx posted a video where he has recreated The Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. As the creator states, this demo uses original assets from the game, but the coding for it was all their work.While it’s faithful in the sense that it uses the basic geometry and color schemes from the original game, the newly added textures and lighting give it a whole new dimension. This is still a stylized game, as can be seen from Link’s design, but it does look more realistic than what we’re usually used to from the series. It makes you wonder what this series could potentially look like on modern systems like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.A new Zelda game is set to be released this year. With the Nintendo NX also set to make its debut this year, it’s quite possible that we’ll see the next installment in the series release simultaneously on the new console and the Wii U. We haven’t seen much of the game, but we do know that it will have the series’ trademark stylized look and nothing like what we seen in this video.
Kolkata: Zha Liyou, Consul General, the Consulate General of the Peoples’ Republic of China in Kolkata felt that the sectors such as manufacturing, food processing, finance, technical training, sports, tourism and shooting films could play a major role in strengthening the bilateral relationship between India and China.He was addressing a Special Session “India-China Economic Ties: A Sub-National Perspective” organised by Merchants’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry at its office on Thursday.

Referring to age-old relationship of India and China, Liyou said that the relationship in both the state and provincial level should be fostered better as a part of bilateral relationships. He pointed out that there could be an exchange of more business delegations between Kunming and Kolkata and focus areas would be agro technology, mining, healthcare and hospitals tourism and hotels and solid waste management.

He said that Kolkata – Kunming and West Bengal – Yunnan relationships could be taken to a new high even though India and China have different structure with India having collaborative federalism and China having strong Government at the Centre. On tourism he said that while in 2018, 8 lakh Indian tourists went to China, the corresponding figure for Chinese tourists to India was only 2 lakh, which needs to be addressed. He also urged the governments of both the countries to generate more business. Earlier, in his welcome address, Vishal Jhajharia, President of the Chamber spoke about India’s huge trade deficit with China, which has been an area of concern over the years.

Dragons tore their way through the middle of San José Wednesday only to be greeted by an applauding crowd full of flashing cameras and smiles.The dragons, made of ribbons, poles and other decorations, were part of just one of the many performances at the official inauguration of the “Barrio Chino” on Paseo de los Estudiantes, Calle 9, between avenidas 2 and 14, in the central part of the city.“The Chinese people have had a lot to do with the development of this city,” said Francisco Lee, Shifu at the Shaolin Temple, a martial arts school in San José. “This is a recognition of all the people have done for this country.”The first Chinese immigrants came to Costa Rica to work on the Panama Railway in the mid-19th century. Soon after, a large Chinese community emerged in Puntarenas, eventually flowing over into other parts of the country, including San José.The inauguration celebration played host to schools and associations from around the country including the Chinese Associations from Puntarenas, Nicoya and Santa Cruz as well as the national association. Each group contributed some kind of Chinese performance ranging from xylophone music to choreographed martial arts. The pet project of San José’s Mayor Johnny Araya was first proposed in 2009, and with a $1 million donation from the Chinese government, construction began the same year. Three years later, the six-block, $1.4 million pedestrian walkway is done, complete with a Tang Dynasty-style archway overlooking Avenida 2.The Municipality of San José invested an estimated $400,000 in the project in hopes of drawing tourism to the city.“There are many cities around the world with China Towns,” said inauguration organizer Lylian Quesada, with the culture division of the Municipality of San José. “We want to show that San José is a destination with activities for tourists.” Facebook Comments No related posts.

would be hard pressed to find a single city where people can drink water straight from the tap without any health concerns To have adequate sources of waterwastewater must be collected and properly treated before being discharged into the environment Unfortunatelythere is no large Indian city where even 10 per cent of the population has access to good wastewater management Thussources of drinking water are increasingly being contaminated with pollutants All these problems have existed for a long timethe solutions are well-knownand the country has had the financial and management capacities to solve these problems for at least the last two decades Yet the problems persist and are worsening for most major cities There is no realistic possibility that they will be solved in the next two decades unless the Indian public flatly refuses to accept such abysmal urban water management services Governments at the Centralprovincial and municipal levels have offered several excuses for this unfortunate situation It has frequently been said that India is facing a water crisis and there is not enough water to ensure its citizens 24-hour supply This myth is now widely believed Let us examine the facts For nearly all large Indian citiesleakages and theft from the systems account for 40-60 per cent of water supplied Even after this colossal lossthe average citizen of DelhiMumbai or Kolkata uses two and a half to three times the amount of water used by her counterparts in Hamburg and Barcelonawho receive a continuous supply of waterwhich can be drunk straight from the tap An average Indian family in an urban area does not receive a 24×7 water supply Howeverthey ensure uninterrupted water supply in their households by transforming them to mini-utilities When water comes for three to four hours each dayit is collected and stored in underground tanksand then pumped to overhead tanks Each household has its own water treatment systemwhich is maintained by the private sector The quality of the water that these systems provide cannot be ascertained Howeverit is highly unlikely that it is clean and safe Water received from the municipalities may be free or highly subsidisedbut each household pays for electricity to pump waterand then pays the private sector to operate and maintain water treatment systems as well as to clean underground and overhead tanks every few months This is in addition to investing in the construction of the tanks and installing a pumping system The current real water cost to an urban Indian family is quite high India has the expertise and resources to provide all urban centres of more than two lakh people with clean water supply on a 24×7 basis Unfortunatelyit does not have a single city with a properly functioning water department

their expertise in managing a large utilityand they must be held accountable for their performance If notDelhi will continue to receive sub-standard water services There is no reason why cities like

on Monday he would step up Manchester United’s pursuit of Gareth Bale if the Real Madrid winger was left out of the starting line-up in Tuesday’s European Super Cup between the Red Devils and the Champions League holders Bale was once the world’s most expensive player when he joined Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur for 855 million pounds ($111 million) although his status in Madrid has fallen due to an injury-ravaged last campaign that saw him miss the starting line-up for the Champions League final win over Juventus Bale’s Real future has been further cast into doubt by the club’s reported pursuit of teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe of Monaco although he is expected to start against United Mourinho said he would take the Wales international’s absence as an invitation to lure him to Old Trafford “If he is not in the club’s plans that with the arrival of another player would mean he was on his way out I will try to be waiting for him on the other side and fight with other coaches that would want him on their team” Mourinho told a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s game in Skopje “If he’s playing tomorrow I wouldn’t think of that it would be because he’s in the coach’s plans and the club’s plans because he also has the motivation to continue at Real Madrid” United have signed striker Romelu Lukaku midfielder Nemanja Matic and defender Victor Lindelof this summer for a combined

permit water breaks during Tuesday’s game “I knew the weather was like this and since we got back from the United States In Madrid they have training sessions with the hot weather so must be more

Adrian Top News AFTER I underwent the surgery I felt a sense of relief Finally I was complete — I was the girl I wanted to be” says Tamara Adrian who is a well-known LGBT (lesbian gay bisexual and transgender) activist and an elected member of the National Assembly of Venezuela referring to the sex-change operation she underwent in 2002 At present Adrian is in Goa her first time in India at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) where she attended the world premiere of the movie Tamara on November 24 It is based on her life and is directed by Elia Schneider Sporting a dress with floral prints red-haired Adrian talks about her struggle for identity — the initial fight to come to terms with the fact that though born as a man she wished to be a woman This she says was followed by the struggle to find acceptance in society The movie Tamara inspired by her life captures her conflicts and struggles with searing honesty “In most cases minority groups are segregated and discriminated against When you become the face of a fight against such segregation and advocate equal rights you are entrusted with a huge responsibility” says Adrian whose name remains Tomas her birth name and gender ‘male’ in official documents — more than a decade after her sex-change South American countries such as Paraguay and Venezuela don’t allow change of name and gender irrespective of sex reassignment surgery “Such changes in identity used to be allowed in Venezuela until Hugo Chávez came to power in 1999 (he ruled as president till 2013) They are still not entertained in Venezuela because of this strange mix of extreme fundamentalist and right-wing conceptions about life and religious participation” says the 62-year-old who is Venezuela’s first transgender political figure The movie Tamara made over a period of five years starts with the return of Teo — the lead character inspired by Adrian — from Paris after completing his master’s degree in law when his brother dies in a freak accident In Venezuela he struggles to find a job as people judge him by this appearance and choice of clothing Eventually he tries to fit himself into the ways of the society — cuts his hair shorter dresses conservatively gets married and has two children In later years his desire to identify as a woman grows stronger He starts dressing up more like a woman and undergoes hormonal treatment which seven years later culminates in the sex-change operation In the meantime Teo is separated from his family and gets divorced Problems crop up on the job front too when he is faced with the possibility of losing his teaching post at the university “Nearly 40 per cent of what you see on the screen is real Rest we had to fictionalise to keep the narrative engrossing and avoid any legal complications or backlash” says Schneider Tamara which released in Venezuela on November 4 is running successfully in theatres there After Goa the film will travel to festivals in Miami and Santa Barbara among others Much before Adrian formally joined politics she was an activist fighting for LGBT women and human rights According to her poor people from the transgender community often struggle to get their quota of basic supplies such as food and medicines “Ration cards have been replaced by the biometric system After standing in the queue they are often told that the system does not identify them As a result many have to purchase them from black market” says Adrian a member of the Popular Will party which is in the Opposition Adrian hopes the film will inspire those belonging to minority groups “One of the biggest fears you have as a transgender is that you are risking everything — job family and other relationships The fact that someone has been able to overcome that becomes an example There are many transgender youngsters studying at universities They are graduating pursing their career and choosing to live life their way It is changing” says Adrian Interestingly according to Adrian sex- change alters the perception of society towards transgender people as if it brings some sort of normalcy “People are less reluctant to accept transgender people who change their sex organ There is a slight but positive difference in perception” says Adrian After being separated from her children for several years Adrian is once again close to them now “Earlier their mother kept them away from me After they became adults I met them freely again Today in certain ways they are closer to me than their mother” says Adrian Married for the second time for 22 years she

Party emerged at a time when many had despaired that the Congress may never recover When it shoved the Congress to third place in the Delhi elections of 2013 Rahul Gandhi pledged the Congress to be like the AAP and improve But luckily he was not serious Now it is the AAP which is worrying many like me who had high hopes of it First came the brief period of 49 days of AAP rule marked by a constant agitational mode Arvind Kejriwal chose to be a permanent agitator rather than CM Ambition then overtook the AAP in the 2014 elections It ran candidates all across India Kejriwal ran against Narendra Modi in Varanasi and split the anti-Modi vote But then came redemption in the manner of a landslide victory in Delhi At last came the opportunity for the AAP to show that its new style of community-based politics would deliver results It has been a curate’s egg good in parts Every act of good governance has been drowned in polemical battles with as many enemies as Kejriwal can fantasise about He has a thing for Modi whom he has called shocking names Kejriwal spends a disproportionate part of his time exorcising the Modi ghost It is not a ghost though but a reality Delhi is Union Territory not a state Rather than showing how much better Delhi can be run he has now extended the quarrel to the Lieutenant Governor dragging the Delhi government across courts (How much do these stunts cost the Delhi citizen) The AAP can do good even when it devotes a rather small fraction of its time governing The Odd-Even scheme was brilliant even if it did not reduce pollution These are good ideas to decentralise But Kejriwal’s attention is fixed on winning the Centre rather than making mohallas run better The next chapter in Kejriwal’s ‘March to Race Course Road’ is now being fashioned in Punjab That is where the AAP has four MPs of whom one has created problems If news and polls are to be believed neither the SAD/ BJP nor the Congress is the flavour of the season It is the AAP which is seen as an untried outsider (so far) not tarred with incumbency Then we are told that if Kejriwal was to be the lead campaigner as CM-to-be then the AAP could emerge as victors It must be very tempting for a man who believes he was born to be the saviour of the nation and the scourge of Modi to yield to the prospect of plunging into the Punjab cauldron It will be something of a first for someone to run as CM of another state while being CM of a UT Suppose he does and as a worst case scenario wins then we have Kejriwal-1 lasting 49 days Kejriwal-2 lasting around two years as Delhi CM But then Kejriwal-3 as Punjab CM is not interested in Punjab any more than in Delhi He wants Race Course Road So come 2019 he will be running for PM as the head of the AAP singly or in some coalition If again in the worst case scenario he wins Kejriwal-3 would have lasted less than two years as Punjab CM Would it not be better if he stayed back in Delhi and fulfilled his promises For all

take the time to go bangle-shopping so that he could get an opportunity to gift her the Ivanka bangles Jewellery crafted especially for Ivanka Trump by Mohammed Waseem’s artisans Firstpost/TS Sudhir The gesture gives you a sense of what the Global Entrepreneurship Summit is all about Much to the discomfiture of many officials in the organising party the GES 2017 being organised for the first time in South Asia has become more about Ivanka and less about the 1500 entrepreneurs who are attending the summit "This is not the way we had envisaged it" said an official on condition of anonymity "The media too is more interested in writing about the designer who created Ivanka’s dress for the inauguration rather than what this global meeting of entrepreneurs most of them women could mean" He has a point The GES if what has been on show so far is anything to go by has become an occasion for both Hyderabad and the people associated with it to show they matter First the venue: Hyderabad now has a chip on its shoulder because it bagged this prestigious event that any other city in India would have loved to host Amitabh Kant CEO of Niti Aayog went on record to say that three cities including Hyderabad were in the race to host GES 2017 "In the end on all parameters Hyderabad was way ahead of the other two cities and that is why it was chosen as the host" said Kant The inside story of how Hyderabad won the race received a further endorsement when Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his inaugural speech spoke of the summit as a connection between Silicon Valley and Hyderabad That won’t be music to Bengaluru’s ears because India’s IT capital has worn the unofficial tag of being India’s Silicon Valley for a long time What GES 2017 does is to give a fillip to Hyderabad and India’s youngest state that is also joint number one with Andhra Pradesh in the Ease of Doing Business rankings Showcasing its T-Hub — that is an ecosystem that mentors start-ups Hyderabad has gained the reputation of being an innovation hub And the city got a thumbs up from Ivanka Trump herself when she said that Hyderabad’s tech centres may even outshine the city’s world famous biryani That was after Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao as the host asked everyone to relish the Hyderabadi biryani during their visit What the GES will do for Hyderabad then is to put it on the international radar as a city keen to aggressively embrace the cutting edge of technology and entrepreneurship Officials in the Telangana government say it is crucial to take advantage of the PR edge Hyderabad achieves as a result of hosting this mega event and follow it up with striking partnerships with different cities in the world Not that Brand Hyderabad is not a reality As many as five most valued companies in the world including Google Facebook and Microsoft have their largest presence outside the US in Hyderabad That GES 2017 will help it underline its potential and leverage its branding a notch higher is the expectation Participants and delegates at the GES on Tueday Twitter @narendramodi This is not exactly music to the ears of the man who actually helped create the IT city of Hyderabad and its brand equity Chandrababu Naidu reports said was keen on Ivanka visiting Andhra Pradesh as well with a pitstop either at Amaravati or in Visakhapatnam but her tight schedule did not allow that Andhra Pradesh government officials denied any such effort was made commenting with a hint of sarcasm "We are quite happy with Bill Gates" The former Microsoft chief was in Vizag earlier this month Strangely no invite was extended to Naidu to attend the summit But he did not go unrepresented albeit in his private capacity His daughter-in-law Brahmani was a delegate wearing the hat of an entrepreneur as she is involved in the running of Heritage Foods "My mother-in-law and I run the company so in that sense what we practise is in sync with the theme of the GES — Women First Prosperity for All" said Brahmani But at the same time the profile of the 350-member strong American delegation has left some in doubt if the GES has the complete backing of the US government The internal politics on Capitol Hill is believed to have ensured Ivanka’s delegation was shorn of both the sheen and the seniority of government officials The feeling is that the GES is seen as a legacy of the Barack Obama era and observers are not quite sure how much the present administration is vested in it If GES 2017 has to achieve substantial results over the next two days it has to go beyond its obsession with Ivanka Trump Scores of Indian entrepreneurs are looking at this opportunity to pitch their ideas to investors and mentors who have come from 120-odd other countries hoping to find synergy and common ground With a number of Indian-Americans part of the US delegation Hyderabad will be a forum both for storytelling about the mistakes they made but also to provide some global wind

Merit is not unrelated to caste an Indian Express investigation into the recent expulsions at IIT Roorkee has found reaffirming an old truth Ninety per cent of the 72 first-year students who were expelled by the institution for failing to secure the minimum acceptable grade were from reserved categories The IIT has relented and given them a second chance but there is no certainty that they will fare any better because the social cultural and educational factors that caused them to falter remain in force That leaves the institution facing a strange conundrum: Why are some students who have weathered the joint entrance examination one of the world’s toughest tests of academic and intellectual ability unable to cope with the curriculum At a time when the IIT network wants to ramp up and attract more students and teaching staff a high failure rate creates a serious perception problem Share This Article Related Article Social disadvantage and language barriers prevent students from disempowered backgrounds especially those educated in Indian languages from keeping pace with their lessons Indeed where the medium of instruction is English students schooled in the sciences in an Indian language are automatically disadvantaged and there is a limit to which they can use mathematics and symbolic logic to communicate Switching the medium of instruction to Hindi would not erase inequity since only about a quarter of Indians speak it natively The logical alternative to provide supportive education in English is practised at some IITs but not in Roorkee A system of mentoring by senior students has been put in place recently but such non-formal support is never failsafe Besides inequalities are not merely academic but cultural A student who likes Muddy Waters generally fares better socially than one who likes Bollywood music And the recent controversy in IIT Madras over the Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle suggests that administrations are not wholly unmindful of caste Unfortunately reservation is all too frequently seen as a binary opposed to merit In technical education dire consequences are predicted: surgeons who remove the wrong organ and civil engineers who cannot build in right angles simply because they were cut too much slack on account of their background But this either/ or logic is crude and there is no real bar to reservation producing merit through extended support systems Reservations give disadvantaged students an edge at the level of the entrance examination but once students are in the IIT system they are treated at par However while continuing to treat students equally the administration may wish to bolster the self-esteem of those who fail to communicate effectively by extending cultural and language support For all the latest
