In troubled waters 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
For centuries, people in India have known the stories of the 12 incarnations of Lord Vishnu including the Kurma (turtle) avatar. It is believed that this avatar helped the devas and the asuras churn out the amrut or life giving nectar from the ocean. In the scientific world, while there is little place for such mythological fiction, it is not wrong to assume that the turtles of our natural world are an important agent of life that are helping pass on crucial nutrients from the oceans to the lands. Because of their unusual life cycles, turtles spend their life in the seas but come on the shores for nesting and breeding thus enriching the energy-poor habitats on land such as the sandy beaches with marine nutrients. This simple ecological service by the turtles has been crucial in shaping the coastline of the country including that of Karnataka. And yet, the winds of change bring with themselves destruction, fragmentation and threats of poaching to the turtles, making it more and more difficult for them to ...

With Rouhani's win, Iranians seek reforms 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Iranians came out in force to dance in the streets this weekend, breaking Islamic rules, to celebrate the re-election of President Hassan Rouhani by a large margin. Emboldened by the election results, others gathered in the capital, Tehran, to begin demanding what they hope a second term for Rouhani will bring: the release of opposition figures, more freedom of thought and fewer restrictions on daily life. Rouhani's supporters also expect the victory to bolster his outreach efforts to the West and the pursuit of more foreign investment in Iran's ailing economy. His win, with 57% of the vote, came the same weekend that US President Donald Trump was meeting with Saudi and other Arab leaders to discuss, in part, a strengthened alliance against Iran. For those who had voted for Rouhani, there was a feeling of tremendous relief that his challenger, the hard-line cleric Ebrahim Raisi, who criticised the nuclear deal with the US and other Western powers, had lost. "Bye bye, Raisi," the crowds chanted during the ...

Trump bringing world back to horse & cart says Schwarzenegger 22.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Arnold Schwarzenegger laid into US President Donald Trump today saying his plans to revive coal would bring the world back to the horse and cart. The Hollywood star and former California governor said he despairs of what Trumps energy policy, which is heavy on fossil fuels, will do to the planet. "When I hear he wants to bring coal back, thats going backwards. The next thing hell want to bring horses and buggies (carts) back," the actor and activist told reporters at the Cannes film festival. "Trump or no Trump we all have to move forward," he added. And he urged people worldwide to rise up to save the planet. "All great movements -- civil rights, the vote for women, the anti-apartheid movement, the freedom movement in India -- all started on a grassroots level. "We cannot wait for Washington. The people have to rise up and say we got to protect what we have so we dont have climate change and seven million people dying every year because of pollution." Schwarzenegger narrates a new documentary by the son ...

Astronomers create the largest map of the universe! 22.5.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Astronomers have created the first map of the large-scale structure of the universe based entirely on the positions of quasars. Quasars are the incredibly bright and distant points of light powered by super-massive black holes.  "Because quasars are so bright, we can see them all the way across the universe," said Ashley Ross of the Ohio State University in the US. "That makes them the ideal objects to use to make the biggest map yet," said Ross. The amazing brightness of quasars is due to the super- massive black holes found at their centres. As matter and energy fall into a quasar's black hole, they heat up to incredible temperatures and begin to glow. It is this bright glow that is detected by a dedicated 2.5-metre telescope on Earth. "These quasars are so far away that their light left them when the universe was between three and seven billion years old, long before the Earth even existed," said Gongbo Zhao from the National Astronomical Observatories of Chinese Academy of Sciences. To make their ...
