Digvijaya flags concerns over proposed nuke power plant in MP 20.2.2018 General News
Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to reconsider the decision to set up a 1400 MW nuclear power plant in tribal-dominated Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh. In his letter addressed to the prime minister and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the AICC general secretary said the proposed 1400 MW Chutka nuke project will affect the conservation as well as bio-diversity of the Narmada river. "The Narmada river is a lifeline of tribals living for ages in Mandla district as they earn their livelihood by fishing," Singh, currently on "Narmada Parikrama", wrote in the letter. "Since the last four months of my Narmada Parikrama (circumambulation), I found that the river area is shrinking and getting polluted. In such situation, establishing a nuclear power plant would not only destroy bio-diversity of the Narmada river, but would also prove disastrous for this water body," he stated. Singh claimed a total of 606 .

Pak will collapse like Soviet Union if it pursues arms race: Ex-envoy 19.2.2018 General News
Pakistan will collapse like the erstwhile Soviet Union if it does not quit a "losing arms race", and, must also seriously consider casting aside its dependence on the armed forces, especially the army, to be regarded as a great nation, said a former envoy.Interacting with students and academia at the Florida State University (FSU) recently, Pakistan's former Ambassador to the United States, Hussain Haqqani, said Pakistan lacks greatness because most of its political problems are resolved with the help of military force."Pakistan needs economic power and education as its' current focus, nuclear weapons are of no use if it truly seeks to be a great power once again," Haqqani was quoted as saying during his interaction, which came before his speech on the theme "Seeking Lost Glory: Lessons of Islamist Extremism."Haqqani was critical of the fact that Pakistan believes nuclear weaponry is important and makes them an equal on the world stage."However, they prioritise it over economic and ...

Cyprus says Turkish warships continue to block drilling rig 13.2.2018 General News
Turkey has faced criticism after its warships continued to impede a rig from reaching a location off Cyprus where Italian energy company Eni is scheduled to drill for gas. Cyprus government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides yesterday told state broadcaster RIK that the rig remains anchored about 50 kilometres from the drilling target off the island nation's southeastern coast. He said both the government and Eni are focused on ensuring that drilling goes ahead as planned. The Turkish warships also prevented other merchant vessels from approaching the area, citing ongoing military manoeuvres, Christodoulides said. Cyprus says a Turkish notice blocking off the area for military activity violates international law and is legally invalid. In 1974, Cyprus was divided into a Greek Cypriot south, where the internationally recognised government is seated, and a Turkish Cypriot north that only Turkey recognises and where over 35,000 Turkish troops are stationed.

Clues to the origin of heavy elements 12.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Just over 300 years ago, in late 1717, the price of gold was first standardised by Sir Isaac Newton. It continues to be the economic standard to this day. In the form of gold coins and later as backing for paper money, it fluctuated with world crises, market forces and economic policies. After World War II, when the European nations were economically shattered, gold was tied to the US dollar, with the delegates at the Bretton Woods Conference, held in 1944, fixing the rate of 35 dollars to an ounce of gold. After 1971, when the dominant US dollar was no longer tied to gold, the metal became freely traded. Gold, as a chemical element, is not vital to human existence like oxygen but with its imperishable shine and unusual properties like its malleability and density, it has become one of the most coveted commodities. From the ancient Egyptian pharaohs who insisted on being buried in the flesh of the gods to the financiers who made gold the bedrock of the global economy, humankinds attachment to the yellow ...
