Stinking truth that won Isaac's Oscar 9.3.2017
As she begins to speak, a couple of honks go off. She is in a car, is that ok, Vidhu Vincent asks. The tone and the small cracks in her familiar voice are all the same, as before. Two state awards overnight for her film Manhole — best film and best director — have not changed anything, except possibly her hopes to do more. It’s Women’s Day and she has just finished talking to a group of students in a college at Thrissur, taking off to Kozhikode to work on her second film already — a subject she calls woman-oriented, with a woman producer and a technical crew Vidhu hopes to fill with women. Vidhu with her team. That she becomes the first woman to win the best director award, for Vidhu, is an acceptance bigger than anything. “By their decision to choose this film, the jury is sending out a message to the industry and the people. It becomes an inspiration, gives confidence and happiness to a lot of women. I am glad the declaration comes on Women’s Day too. There is something that Maya Angelo said — ‘Each ...

Bengaluru: Three sanitary contract workers with BWSSB died of asphyxiation when they got into a manhole to clear the blockage in C V Raman Nagar early Tuesday.

Manhole is Kerala's best film 8.3.2017
Thiruvananthapuram: Vidhu Vincent’s Manhole, a searing realistic account of manual scavenging in the state, won big at the 47th State Film Awards. The film won both the best film and the award for the best director. The jury led by cinematographer and director A.K. Bir ignored mainstream films. Maheshinte Prathikaram was the only commercial film that won a top award; best script for Shyam Pushkaran. Vinayakan beat competition from none other than Mohanlal to emerge the best actor for what the jury terms his “believable” portrayal of Ganga who is on the verge of insanity in Rajeev Ravi’s Kammattipadam. “He could achieve an amazing balance between his violent body language and his internal weaknesses,” the jury noted. ‘Ottayal Patha’, directed by brothers Santhosh and Satish Babusenan, was adjudged the second best film. Interestingly, the film was not selected to any category at the last IFFK. ‘Manhole’ and Dr Biju’s ‘Kaadu Poookkunna Neram’ were the Malayalam films in IFFK competition. A.K. Kaladharan who ...

Scientists create artificial mouse 'embryo' from stem cells for first time 5.3.2017
Understanding the very early stages of embryo development is of interest because this knowledge may help explain why a significant number of human pregnancies fail at this time. Once a mammalian egg has been fertilised by a sperm, it divides multiple times to generate a small, free-floating ball of stem cells. The particular stem cells that will eventually make the future body, the embryonic stem cells (ESCs) cluster together inside the embryo towards one end: this stage of development is known as the blastocyst. The other two types of stem cell in the blastocyst are the extra-embryonic trophoblast stem cells (TSCs), which will form the placenta, and primitive endoderm stem cells that will form the so-called yolk sac, ensuring that the foetus’s organs develop properly and providing essential nutrients. Previous attempts to grow embryo-like structures using only ESCs have had limited success. This is because early embryo development requires the different types of cell +to coordinate closely with each ...
