US govt shutdown exposes ‘chronic flaws’: Chinese state media 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Beijing, January 21 China’s official news agency said in a commentary on Sunday that the shutdown of the US government exposed “chronic flaws” in the US political system. Funding for federal agencies ran out at midnight on Friday in Washington after lawmakers failed to agree on a stopgap funding bill. “What’s so ironic is that it came on the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s presidency on Saturday, a slap in the face for the leadership in Washington,” China’s Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary by Xinhua writer Liu Chang. The commentary said that the Trump administration had “backtracked” on policies supported by his predecessor, Barack Obama, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and U.S. participation in the Paris climate agreement. “If there was any legacy that has survived the transfer of power, it was the spirit of non-cooperation across party lines,” the Xinhua commentary said. While Xinhua commentaries are not official statements, they offer a reflection of Beijing’s ...

Meteorites may have brought water to Earth in first two million years 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Boston Water may have been brought to our planet by meteorites during the first two million years of after the birth of the solar system, a study has found. Since elements such as water and carbon are essential ingredients to life on Earth, researchers are keen to know when they arrived on our planet. "We're looking at as many meteorite parent bodies as possible right now to figure out where they were in the early solar system and how much water they had," said Adam Sarafian, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US. Angrite meteorites formed in the inner solar system extremely early, roughly 4.56 billion years ago. At that point, the Earth was likely still just 20 per cent of its current size, while Mars, which formed more quickly, was probably close to its current size. Scientists are not sure how quickly Mercury and Venus were formed. During this time, the inner solar system was a hot and dry place. Protoplanets and asteroids had molten surfaces and, when in magma, even an ...

HC no to use of UV protection black films on cars 21.1.2018 The Tribune
New Delhi, January 21 The Delhi High Court has said that it would not allow the use of solar control black films on cars, which have been banned due to security reasons. A bench of justices Sanjiv Khanna and Chander Shekhar also refused to strike down a law prohibiting use of black films for windscreens and side glasses of four wheelers, saying it was in “larger public interest”. It, however, said that it was neither passing any order nor was it inclined to give any relief on the plea seeking direction to authorities not to take any step against the petitioner for using solar control black film in his car as he was suffering from a disorder caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays. The court said there are technologies available, by which an individual, who is suffering from the rare genetic disorder caused by UV rays, can easily protect himself. “The decision to enforce the ban on the use of the tinted glasses beyond permissible limits is in public interest, so we are not going to interfere with it,” the bench ...
