Maria Sharapova's incredible rags-to-riches journey resumes in Stuttgart 26.4.2017 DNA: Money
From the shadow of Chernobyl's nuclear wasteland to international super-stardom and from penniless arrival in the United States, without a word of English, to a fortune of $200 million. It may sound like the stuff of Hollywood dreams, but the story of Maria Sharapova is a testament to the power of one individual to make it, whatever the odds, whatever the controversy, whatever people think. On Wednesday in Stuttgart, the 30-year-old will return from a 15-month doping suspension to open the next chapter. When she takes to the court to face Roberta Vinci, it will be to the consternation of many opponents and the relief, albeit privately, of a women's tour left flagging by the absence of Serena Williams, probably Sharapova's only serious rival in the arena-filling business. Sharapova shot to international fame as a giggly 17- year-old Wimbledon winner in 2004 -- the third youngest player to conquer the All England Club's famous grass courts. She would go on to win the Australian and US Opens while claiming ...

Maharashtra government seeks clarity on cost of power from Jaitapur N-plant 25.4.2017 DNA: Top News
The Maharashtra state government has sought clarity from French officials and the French company EDF on the cost of power produced from the Jaitapur nuclear power plant. It has even said that it will purchase power from the project only if it is affordable, said government officials. The state has made its stand clear last week during the meeting between Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and a delegation led by Alexandre Ziegler, the French envoy. The state government's position on the power purchase is revealing as work on the proposed nuclear power plant is yet to begin even after years of protest from local farmers and fishermen. The Jaitapur nuclear power plant is proposed to have a 9,900MW capacity, making it the world's biggest nuclear power park once operational. As per the original agreement on the nuclear plant, the state government was to get 3,000 MW from the plant. But, with several delays and cost overruns, the state government does not want to buy power at an exorbitant cost. During the ...

The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to the Union government and others on a plea contending that coastal regulation zone clearance was granted to Units 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project without proper environment impact assessment. A bench of Justice Madan B Lokur and Justice Deepak Gupta also sought response from Tamil Nadu Government and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd on an appeal filed on behalf of nuclear activist G Sundarrajan of Poovulagin Nanbargal. The petition argued by advocate Prashant Bhushan submitted the mandatory EIA for the said units has been done by an unaccredited agency Engineers India Ltd.

The NGT had earlier dismissed the plea saying that the Supreme Court in 2013 judgment has already dealt with units 3 to 6. Bhushan, however, submitted the earlier judgment was only on Units 1 and 2 and ...

Solar power sector has bright and shining future 23.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Two recent events related to India's energy security are worth noting. The first was the joint announcement by the prime ministers of India and Australia that the latter would soon start exporting uranium to India. This would need legislative approval in Australia, but Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is confident of getting that bipartisan support from his Parliament. It would be the first time that Australia would be exporting uranium to a country that has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). India refuses to sign the NPT on principle since it is discriminatory and exempts the big five of the United Nations Security Council from signing. Because of this stance, India suffered nuclear apartheid for almost three decades before the Indo-US civilian nuclear power deal led countries from the Nuclear Suppliers' Group to export nuclear fuel to India. Thus, Australia which has 40% of the world's uranium, signed a nuclear cooperation agreement two years ago with India, facilitating the supply ...
