Wireless power zones to charge your phone (Cached) 18.4.2014 DNA: India
What if you are told you can charge your smart phone even if the power source is some distance away on a street or inside a restaurant? Taking the wireless technology one step ahead, researchers have removed the last remaining wires altogether by developing wireless power transfer technology. The result is Dipole Coil Resonant System (DCRS) that can charge 40 smart phones simultaneously, even if the power source is 5 metres away. "With DCRS, a large LED TV as well as three 40 watt fans can be powered from a 5-metre distance," said Chun T. Rim, a professor of nuclear and quantum engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea. The technology proved the possibility of a new remote power delivery mechanism that has never been tried at such a long distance. "Just like we see wi-fi zones everywhere today, we will eventually have many wi-power zones at such places as restaurants and streets that provide electric power wirelessly to electronic devices," Rim ...

Nato's action plan in Ukraine is right out of Dr Strangelove | John Pilger 17.4.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
From China to Ukraine, the US is pursuing its longstanding ambition to dominate the Eurasian landmass I watched Dr Strangelove the other day. I have seen it perhaps a dozen times; it makes sense of senseless news. When Major TJ "King" Kong goes "toe to toe with the Rooskies" and flies his rogue B52 nuclear bomber to a target in Russia, it's left to General "Buck" Turgidson to reassure the president. Strike first, says the general, and "you got no more than 10-20 million killed, tops". President Merkin Muffley: "I will not go down in history as the greatest mass murderer since Adolf Hitler." General Turgidson: "Perhaps it might be better, Mr President, if you were more concerned with the American people than with your image in the history books." The genius of Stanley Kubrick's film is that it accurately represents the cold war's lunacy and dangers. Most of the characters are based on real people and real maniacs. There is no equivalent to Strangelove today because popular culture is directed almost ...

Running For Cover (Cached) 14.4.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
There is a great deal of noise floating around as Indians are bombarded with wild, over-the-top speculation and superficial political debates on a book by a former aide to the prime minister, Manmohan Singh. The timing of the publication was a calculated exercise; the publisher realized that the book's sales would be marginal once the incumbent government left office. Pointing fingers at everyone and finding fault with everything have become so common in public discourse that Indians have to deal with these throughout their waking hours. There are no exciting, fresh ideas that greet the country, either in the print or in the electronic media.
