Australian Open: Billie Jean King renews call to rename Margaret Court Arena 12.1.2018 DNA: Money
Twelve-times Grand Slam champion Billie Jean King said on Friday that Margaret Court's name should be stripped from the Australian Open show-court due to her divisive views on sexuality. American King's comments follow a report in the New York Times on Thursday in which Martina Navratilova said she would refuse to play on Margaret Court Arena if still competing. A contemporary of King, 75-year-old Court is a Christian pastor and has campaigned against same-sex marriage, which recently became legal in Australia after a plebiscite last year.   The Australian also caused a furore last year by telling a Christian radio station that transgender children were corrupted by "the devil" and that tennis was "full of lesbians". "I personally don't think she should have her name (on it) any more," King, 74, told reporters at Melbourne Park. "I was fine until lately she said so many derogatory things ... That really went deep in my heart and soul." King, a lesbian and equal rights activist, said she had advocated for ...

Gravitational waves used to measure age of universe 9.1.2018 DNA: Money
Astronomers have used gravitational waves - ripples in the fabric of space and time caused by a violent cosmic event - to measure the age of the universe. The direct detection of gravitational waves from at least five sources during the past two years offers spectacular confirmation of Einstein's model of gravity and space-time, researchers said. Now, astronomers at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) in the US have used a single gravitational wave event (GW170817) to measure the age of the universe. A team of 1,314 scientists from around the world contributed to the detection of gravitational waves from a merging pair of binary neutron stars, followed by the detection of gamma-rays. They then identified the origin of the cataclysm in a source in the galaxy NGC4993 spotted in images taken with various time delays at wavelengths from the X-ray to the radio. An analysis of the gravitational waves from this event infers their intrinsic strength. The observed strength is less, implying that the ...

DNA EXCLUSIVE: Metro tunnel security exposed 7.1.2018 DNA: Popular News
Security agencies were shocked last month to find that their communication system does not work inside metro tunnels. Personnel could not communicate with each other at all, exposing their preparedness to deal with terror threats and attacks. India's elite force, the National Security Guard (NSG), has now decided to procure a high-end mesh radio communication system that will cost Rs 3.30 crore. The system will have wrist computers and will be managed from a faraway ground control station. The move follows threats of London Tube-like attacks. Delhi Metro has an operational underground section of approximately 47 km, and as part of its third-phase expansion, it is adding over 53 km more.
