French police break fuel depot blockade, nuclear plant strike looms 25.5.2016 DNA: Mumbai
Police broke up a fuel depot blockade in France on Wednesday and the hardline CGT union called a strike at a nuclear plant in an escalation of a standoff over proposed new labour laws. Faced with shortages at dozens of petrol stations, France has mobilised its strategic oil stocks for the first time since the last major refinery strike in 2010, but officials said there was no underlying shortage, and no risk of one.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday pledged up to $500 million to develop the Iranian port of Chabahar, to try to give his country trade access to Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asia. The route is currently all but blocked by Pakistan, long at odds politically with India.

Nobel medal sale highlights work of forgotten chemist who predicted the atom bomb 21.5.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Francis Aston, Edwardian scientific genius, surfer and motorcycling pioneer, was awarded the Nobel in 1922 for his discovery of isotopes. Now his medal is up for auction

The Nobel prize awarded to one of the world’s most colourful scientists – Francis Aston, an Edwardian surfing fanatic and early pioneer of motorcycle racing – is to be auctioned in London next month.

The medal, a 200g disc made of 23-carat gold, was given to Aston in 1922 in recognition of the British chemist’s discovery of isotopes, elements with the same chemical properties but different atomic masses.
