Natural gas fuel cells: new energy biz Blooms 10.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
As a scientist working for Nasa in the 1990s, K R Sridhar developed a contrap tion that could use energy from the sun to transform the elements of the Martian atmo sphere into breathable air or propulsion fuel. It passed all its tests, but a planned mission to send it to Mars in 2001 was cancelled and Sridhar moved on, looking to apply what he had learned to help stem climate change on Earth instead. "I came full circle - I was trying to make a really uninhabitable planet habitable," Sridhar, 56, said recently, holding a black-domed prototype of the shelved device at his Silicon Valley office. "I was thinking, I can do something to make this planet a little more sustainable." Almost two decades later, that thought has led to a fleet of fuel-cell generators that produce electricity through a chemical reaction. And with a recent deal for Sridhars company, Bloom Energy, to install generators at a dozen data centres in California and New Jersey for Equinix, a leading operator, it is poised for a major ...

Lung cancer: time to kick the butt 29.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Irrespective of the gender, every sixth person per one lakh population in India is diagnosed to have lung cancer. Lung cancer ranks third in cancer-related deaths next to breast cancer and cervical cancer in the country. It is one of the most common causes of cancer-related deaths and is the most common cancer diagnosed worldwide. For people who are into smoking, the best way to avoid getting lung cancer is to not smoke. Smokers who quit for more than 15 years have an 80% to 90% reduction in their risk of lung cancer compared with people who continue to smoke. The odds of developing cancer increases proportionately with the duration and amount of smoking. Starting to smoke at a young age further aggravates the risk.
