Five 'supermassive' black holes discovered 6.7.2015 DNA: Mumbai
Using NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) satellite observatory, the team of international scientists detected the high-energy x-rays from five supermassive black holes previously clouded from direct view by dust and gas. The researchers, led by astronomers at Durham University, UK, pointed NuSTAR at nine candidate hidden supermassive black holes that were thought to be extremely active at the centre of galaxies, but where the full extent of this activity was potentially obscured from view. High-energy x-rays found for five of the black holes confirmed that they had been hidden by dust and gas. The five were much brighter and more active than previously thought as they rapidly feasted on surrounding material and emitted large amounts of radiation. Such observations were not possible before NuSTAR, which launched in 2012 and is able to detect much higher energy x-rays than previous satellite observatories, researchers said. "For a long time we have known about supermassive black holes ...

Islamic State attacks power plant in Hasaka, in northeast Syria – army | Reuters 6.7.2015 FirstPost: World

BEIRUT Islamic State suicide bombers on Sunday blew up an explosive- laden truck near a power plant that serves the northeastern city of Hasaka, the latest attack after their expulsion from most parts of the city, the Syrian army said. State television said a second attack, against a power plant that serves the southern districts of the city, was prevented, but the first had caused "material damage" and led to "casualties". It did not elaborate.

All eyes now on Paris conference 5.7.2015 Asian Age: Editorial
What is charitably referred to as “dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system” in the text of the United Nations UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, is in reality an act of industrial warfare against climate and its allied ecosystem whose impact has become glaring. Its continued relevance for the communities of shared fate and global order is linked to the decision by the richest countries to undergo mandatory de-addiction. But for long these countries have adopted an ostrich-like policy. They are planning to deal with fossil-fuel addiction by the 2100, 85 years from now. Ahead of the Paris climate meeting by the end of 2015, when the world's biggest polluter, China, submitted its voluntary Intended Nationally Determined Con-tributions to the Secretariat of UNFCCC, comparisons between similar commitments by USA and EU have occupied centre stage. China aims to achieve the peaking of carbon dioxide emissions around 2030. It plans to lower Co2 emissions per unit of GDP by 60 to 65 ...

Just send a text instead of calling the front desk 5.7.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As a well-travelled businessman, James Linn felt silly during a trip this month, when he forgot to pack dress socks. In the past, Linn, a managing director at the American Gas Association who was in New Orleans for an energy conference, would have rushed to a clothing store near his hotel, a Hyatt Regency, to buy an extra pair. Instead, he texted the hotel. The front desk texted back within minutes, saying it would have socks waiting for him in the lobby. "What used to be just a personal communication method has become business mainstream," Linn said. Today, having a concierge ready at the tap of a thumb is an amenity offered mostly at luxury-line hotels. But more hotels of all types are beginning to accommodate guests unwilling or unable to fumble with a room phone to call a concierge — increasingly relying on text messages to keep smartphone — wielding guests happy and spending money. At the beginning of last year, Zingle, one of a handful of startups running the technology to connect hotel ...
