Modi in US: Civil nuclear deal to figure in talks with Trump, pact on reactors unlikely 25.6.2017 DNA: India
The Indo-US civil nuclear deal is expected to figure during talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Donald Trump tomorrow, but a pact between the NPCIL and Westinghouse to build six power reactors in Andhra Pradesh is unlikely to be signed. A host of strategic issues are expected to be discussed during the parleys between the leaders of the world's two largest democracies, including the progress on the 2008 civil nuclear deal, according to official sources here. They said a financial turmoil in Westinghouse and absence of a functional reference atomic plant were the main impediments behind the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited's (NPCIL) unwillingness to sign the agreement with the American nuclear giant. According to a joint statement by Modi and the then US president Barack Obama in 2015, both the sides had resolved to work towards "finalising the contractual agreement by June 2017". However, a lot of water has flown under the bridge since then. Westinghouse, which was acquired ...

Indo-US ties important, Trump realises India has been 'force for good' in world: US official 24.6.2017 DNA: India
On the eve of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's US visit, the Trump administration has dismissed reports that it has been ignoring India, saying President Trump realises that the country has been a "force for good" in the world and ties with it were important. "I think that it would be wrong to say that this administration has been ignoring or not focused on India," a senior administration official told reporters ahead of the two-day Modi visit from June 25. "I think that the US really appreciates India, and I think that President Trump realises that India has been a force for good in the world and that it's a relationship that's important. And I think that will come through in the visit on Monday," the official said. The senior administration official made the remarks while responding to questions on whether the US-India relationship has drifted under the new government, in part, because of President Trump and the administration's support to China. "I think it's a bit unfair. I mean, we're only six months ...

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.

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 ...

Total blackout: Malware can shut down electricity distribution systems 12.6.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Hackers have developed powerful malware that can shut down electricity distribution systems and possibly other critical infrastructure, two cyber security firms announced today, with one report linking it to Russia. Slovakia-based ESET said the malware is the most powerful threat to appear since Stuxnet, the hacking tool used to sabotage Iran's nuclear program believed developed by US and Israeli intelligence. ESET said the malware, which it dubbed Industroyer, may be behind the one-hour shutdown of power to the Ukraine capital Kiev last December. The company said Industroyer's potent threat is that it works using the communication protocols designed decades ago and built into energy, transportation, water and gas systems around the world. Making use of these poorly-secured protocols, Industroyer can take direct control of electricity substation switches and circuit breakers, giving hackers the ability to shut down power distribution and damage equipment. The malware is the "biggest threat to industrial ...
