After attack, Punjab says will arm its forest staff, arms bought gather dust 21.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, June 20 Waking up from slumber after a murderous attack on a block forest officer in Seonk (Mohali) on Monday night, Punjab Forest Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot on Wednesday proposed bringing in a policy to equip the field staff with firearms and setting up a “forest protection force” to deal firmly with the mafia involved in illegal sand mining and theft of wood. However, what the minister failed to mention was that a similar proposal was mooted in 2014, but three departments — Forest, Home and Legal Remembrancer — had yet to clear it. In fact, the plan had reached a stage where around 30 firearms — double-barrel guns and pistols — were purchased by the Forest Department to equip the field staff. But these could not be handed over  as the enabling law could not be enacted. The weapons are currently lying with the police at Phillaur. A few states such as Jammu and Kashmir and Assam, with extensive forest lands, have armed forest protection forces. At a media briefing on ...

'Artificial blubber' to protect divers in icy water: Here's how 21.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Scientists have created wetsuits with 'artificial blubber' that can keep deep sea divers warm in icy cold water. When rescue teams are diving under ice-covered rivers or ponds, the survival time even in the best wetsuits is very limited - as little as tens of minutes, and the experience can be extremely painful at best. Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and George Mason University in the US developed a simple treatment that can improve the survival time for a conventional wetsuit by a factor of three. The process works by simply placing the standard neoprene wetsuit inside a pressure tank autoclave no bigger than a beer keg, filled with a heavy inert gas, for about a day. The treatment then lasts for about 20 hours, far longer than anyone would spend on a dive, said Jacopo Buongiorno, professor at MIT. The process could also be done in advance, with the wetsuit placed in a sealed bag to be opened just before use, he said. Researchers looked at the different strategies that ...
