Burying N reactor waste in Finland 22.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Beneath a forested patch of land on the Gulf of Bothnia, at the bottom of a steep tunnel that winds for 3 miles through granite bedrock, Finland is getting ready to entomb its nuclear waste. If all goes well, sometime early in the next decade, the first of what will be nearly 3,000 sealed copper canisters, each up to 17 feet long and containing about two tonnes of spent reactor fuel from Finland's nuclear power industry, will be lowered into a vertical borehole in a side tunnel about 1,400 feet underground. As more canisters are buried, the holes and tunnels — up to 20 miles of them — will be packed with clay and eventually abandoned. The fuel, which contains plutonium and other products of nuclear fission, will remain radioactive for tens of thousands of years — time enough for a new ice age and other epochal events. But between the 2-inch-thick copper, the clay and the surrounding ancient granite, officials say, there should be no risk of contamination to future generations. "We are ...

Afghan, Pak envoys engage in war of words before US audience 20.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Pakistans Ambassador to the US Aizaz Chaudhry today faced some blunt and tough questions from his Afghan counterpart about Islamabads destabilisation and terrorist activities inside Afghanistan. "We call it an undeclared war because the objectives are not set. We dont know what the objectives are for Pakistan. And thats something that we have been trying to discover," Afghan Ambassador to the US Hamdullah Mohib told an audience at an event organised by Indus Think-tank here. In an unusual aggressive mode, reflecting the new tough approach being adopted by the Afghan government, Mohib said that Kabul is not sure who to talk to in Pakistan. "But which Pakistan? The Pakistan that occupies by a militant group, by a military, or the Pakistan of the civilians?" Mohib asked. He said the Pakistan government led by the civilians doesnt have a voice and the reality is that policies are made by the military which uses militancy as a foreign policy. The Afghan diplomat warned that there is a new generation on the ...

The Opposition set to put up a candidate against NDA nominee Ramnath Kovind 20.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The Opposition is all set to put up a candidate against NDA nominee Ram Nath Kovind with the Left parties looking to the Congress to come with suitable names. Congress would sit down with other Opposition parties on Thursday to decide on a candidate where parties like JD(U), Samajwadi Party and BSP are likely to express their reservations about opposing Kovind, a Dalit from Uttar Pradesh, and field another from the deprived section "just for the sake of contesting". Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad has rushed to Patna to attend an iftar and use the occasion to meet Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who has indicated his support for Kovind and convince him on a joint opposition candidate. With an aim to ace the Dalit card played by BJP, a section of the Opposition feels that they should also field a Dalit candidate. Sources said Congress leaders Meira Kumar, a former Lok Sabha Speaker, and Sushil Kumar Shinde, former Home Minister, have gained currency as a possible Opposition choice but it is to ...

Nuclear Fusion pioneer Prof PK Kaw no more 20.6.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
He was a child prodigy. He completed his PhD at the age of 18 from IIT Delhi. He was a young scientist in his 30s when he founded Institute of Plasma Research (IPR) in 1986, and continued as its director till 2012. In this time, India became a part of the prestigious LIGO project and became a full partner in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project. On Sunday, the affable soft-spoken man and physical science genius, Prof PK Kaw, breathed his last at his home in Ahmedabad at the age of 69.  “It is a national loss,” said Prof Amita Das, his associate of 26 years and a senior professor at IPR. “He was a multi-faceted personality. His passion was physics and plasma research, but his interests included philosophy and understanding consciousness,” Prof Das recalls melancholically.   Prof Kaw had a by-pass surgery recently. Besides, he also suffered from Parkinson’s. Despite his health limitations, Prof Das says he was an active scientist right till the end. “He understood the ...
