Smoot was speaking at the Nehru Memorial Museum just before inaugurating the Nobel Museum in the capital Addressing a gathering of students scientists and diplomats Smoot said “The Nobel prize celebrates discoveries and achievements that have transformed our understanding of the world However when these discoveries take place their eventual benefits are unforeseen at first” To drive the point home Smoot presented the example of decreasing availability of potable water in the world In 2010 when Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov were given the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of Graphene it was celebrated for its exotic properties that enable scientists to test the theoretical foundations of physics However its great water filtration potential was unveiled later as the Graphene does not let anything else but water pass through it “Who would’ve thought shaving graphite with a razor could be beneficial to humanity” Smoot said He added that advancements in one field often lead to developments in very different areas To achieve this what is needed is not a person with a strong background in a particular field but people who are capable of seeing connections between things he said — “A person willing to fly in the face of reason authority and usually common sense” Smoot spoke of the need for broad-based support for basic science followed by strong development and implementation efforts to increase chances of a breakthrough “The dropping number of deaths in epidemics over the centuries shows that we are making greater and greater progress” Smoot said He said that the present continues to look “suspiciously” like a slightly enhanced or rehashed version of the past rather than an entirely re-imagined future For all the latest Delhi News

Synopsis: Gujarat’s sultans of swing rattle Kolkata Knight Riders But Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan put on an unbroken 134-run partnership for the fifth wicket to ensure recovery Gujarat Lions however comfortably chased down a victory target of 159 Sultans of swing Praveen Kumar always gives you an impression that swing bowling is a cerebral art And when he finds the conditions to his liking he becomes tough to negotiate The Eden Gardens pitch for this game had a tinge of green and the heaviness in the air helped the new ball move both ways after Suresh Raina won the toss for Gujarat and decided to field first Kumar’s second ball came in sharply from outside off and Robin Uthappa managed a thick inside edge towards mid-on Gautam Gambhir too had a narrow escape Kumar’s outswinger (left-hander’s inswing) went through the gate but missed the stumps Early signs were encouraging for the Gujarat seamers Dhawal Kulkarni found some away movement as well in his first over beating Uthappa twice But he compromised with his length in over-excitement to concede a couple of fours That didn’t prove too costly for Kumar soon removed Gambhir The Kolkata captain was a tad unlucky as the ball deflected off his thigh pad to hit the leg stump Two deliveries hence Manish Pandey was done in by a peach of an outswinger Kulkarni accounted for Uthappa soon after – another outswinger that bounced a little more and the hosts were down to 21/3 after four overs Dwayne Smith made it 24/4 as Suryakumar Yadav fell prey to a blinder from Raina at slip The batsman tried a cheeky ramp but the ball got big on him and took his glove It was flying over the slip when Raina made the leap and plucked the ball out of thin air with his right hand The best catch of the IPL 9 yet Kumar finished with 2/19 in four overs to take the Man of the Match award The recovery A dropped catch played a part in this Shakib played an upper cut off Kulkarni and the ball went high to third man Pravin Tambe was slow to react still he had it covered But the veteran tumbled and the ball came out of his grasp The Kolkata batsman was on three then He accepted the favour and began the resurrection process with Pathan giving him company The latter had to be the aggressor with his partner dropping anchor Pathan’s batting is very uncomplicated Situations notwithstanding he swings hard if the ball is in the range Today his methods came off He started with a swat over cover against Smith Then ‘froggie’ Shivil Kaushik came ‘a courtin’ and the burly middle-order batsman welcomed him with a six over the straight boundary followed by a four through the covers The left-arm chinaman bowler wasn’t given a bowl again Ravindra Jadeja offered more control So Pathan chose precision over power and delicately placed one past short third man for a four Tambe gave a freebie – a half-tracker to be precise – and was dispatched to the square leg fence Pathan’s 41-ball 63 not out was a fantastic effort in the context of the game Shakib on the other hand paced his innings brilliantly He was going at a strike-rate of 7500 till the 15th over picking odd boundaries here and there A six over deep cover off Dwayne Bravo saw him break the shackles Back-to-back maximums against the same bowler in the 18th over provided huge impetus to Kolkata’s innings at the death The left-hander remained unconquered on 66 off 49 balls and added 134 runs (141 overs) in an unbroken fifth wicket partnership – an IPL record surpassing 130* by Owais Shah and Angelo Mathews for Knight Riders against Deccan Chargers in 2010 and identical unbroken stand by David Miller and R Sathish for Kings XI Punjab against Royal Challengers Bangalore three years later Comfortable chase With scores level Aaron Finch was run out following a miscommunication between him and Jadeja The Aussie was furious but only a handful of fans watched him vent his anger Crowd turnout was for this Sunday evening entertainer was good; close to 40000 But midway into Gujarat innings swathes of empty seats started to appear at the stadium The visitors had raced to 89/2 in 10 overs gaining a significant advantage over their opposition who had laboured to 57/4 at the halfway stage Kolkata didn’t have a swing bowler of Kumar’s calibre Andre Russell Morne Morkel and Umesh Yadav hit the deck hard and both Brendon McCullum and Smith liked it as the ball came nicely on to the bat McCullum was lucky to survive on nought for a faint under edge went undetected The Kiwi didn’t let it affect his composure Gujarat were on course after a 42-run opening partnership in 53 overs McCullum then laid into Morkel taking a four and couple off sixes Dinesh Karthik’s blistering 29-ball 51 made the chase very comfortable The ‘keeper-batsman started off with three consecutive fours against Brad Hogg and never looked back It was one of his better IPL knocks Finch too played a lovely little cameo scoring 29 off 10 Aggression at one end allowed Raina to bide his time The skipper made 14 off 18 before getting out to a short delivery from Russell This five-wicket win with 12 balls to spare took Gujarat to the top of the table But Raina’s form remains a concern For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Mumbai | Published: October 17 2014 1:00 am Jayaram in Swapaanam

most from this polarisation the BJP managed to bag three out of the eight Assembly seats in the belt which has traditionally remained loyal to the Congress The three seats that went into the BJP kitty

| Published: July 8 2014 12:22 am The proposed site Related News A study carried out by the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) has cautioned the City And Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) of “ high risk of bird strikes at the proposed Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA) site” at Panvel At the proposed site maximum number of birds around 4500 were seen in February and very few birds were seen from June to December in 2013 the report recently submitted to the CIDCO states “Population of congregating birds in different roosting areas around the proposed site changed seasonally Such kind of bird movement within airport influence zone would be a concern for air safety in the future” said Sujit Narwade co-investigator of the report Around 253 bird species belonging to 55 families were observed within 10 kilometres of the proposed site since December 2011 The 2054-hectare area at Panvel is demarcated as the airport zone and the 10 kms around the site comprises creeks rivers and mangroves which serve as a good habitat for congregating birds along with the Karnala Bird Sanctuary located closeby According to the report flocking water birds were seen congregating in shallow water pools in grasslands and paddy fields near human habitation instead of inland wetlands and seashore “This suggests that birds may get attracted to temporary water pools formed during the monsoon in the vast open patch of land at the proposed NMIA site” states the report Moreover population of Lesser Sandplover Greater Sandplover Curlew Sandpiper species rising to a few thousands during October-November and April-May indicates that some bird populations use wetlands in the vicinity of the proposed NMIA as a stopover site the report states Explaining the danger of bird-hits Captain Mohan Ranganathan an aviation safety expert and former Boeing commander said “ A 30-lbs goose striking the windscreen of a plane flying at 200 knots (in circuit speed) creates a relative impact of 20 tonnes which could cause serious damage to aircraft and pose a risk to lives of passengers” Ranganathan believes the problem is the lack of proper understanding of bird behaviour near the ground by pilots and aviation authorities “Roosting and migratory bird paths are important The danger exists wherever these sites are close to airports but the authorities never pay attention to environmental issues when it comes to airline operations near such areas” The other species sighted in the area include eastern cattle egret painted stork black-headed Ibis a near-threatened species lesser flamingos brown-headed gulls and blue rock pigeons The BNHS report is part of the conditional clearance given to the CIDCO project by the Ministry of Environment and Forests This is the second annual report of a five-year study that began in December 2011 To avoid bird hits BNHS has recommended that the proposed site and adjoining area be made unattractive for the birds as well as develop bird sanctuaries on the coast and in the mangroves away from the influences of air traffic as compensation Developing proper garbage disposal system in the area to avoid attracting birds strictly regulating the extent and spread of stone quarries and construction work were the other recommendations anjalilukose@expressindiacom For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App

News Russia’s players have not been distracted by the fan violence that has brought a threat of disqualification from Euro 2016 coach Leonid Slutski said after another stuttering performance from his team on Wednesday “It has had no effect on the team” Slutski said after Russia’s 2-1 defeat by Slovakia in Lille on Wednesday which leaves them now needing to beat Wales in their final Group B game to survive in the tournament Worryingly with the threat of expulsion from this tournament hanging over the 2018 World Cup hosts a flare went off among Russian fans after Denis Glushakov’s late strike gave them brief hope of salvaging a point But Slutski insisted he did not see it and refused to say if he was worried about a repeat of the fan violence in Marseille that marred Saturday’s 1-1 draw with England UEFA indicated that the flare incident did not constitute a “crowd disturbance” that might trigger the suspended penalty hanging over the Russian team since their supporters charged England fans at the Stade Velodrome Nonetheless Russian fans were being monitored by a massive police presence in Lille after the game for fear of new clashes with English and Welsh supporters crowding the city ahead of their clash in the same group in nearby Lens on Thursday Slutski was clearly dissatisfied by another disjointed performance by his team and suggested that the line-up unchanged from the England game might well be altered for Monday’s decisive clash with Wales in Toulouse “Changes are quite possible” Slutski told reporters though he declined to criticise his misfiring forward trio of Aleksandr Kokorin Artem Dzyuba and Fedor Smolov “We have plenty of time for analysis and to assess our playing resources” Slutski said Marek Hamsik’s goal that put Slovakia 2-0 ahead at halftime was down to his defence’s lack of concentration in injury time Slovakia coach Jan Kozak said his side had worked on the short corner routine specifically to target a Russian defensive weakness they had spotted With Russia still having the chance of picking up four points in their group Slutski said: “The situation in the group is pretty messy Every team has a chance of reaching the knockout stage The battle will go right to the end” Looking ahead to the Welsh game he noted the threat from Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey their “two top-class players” For Kozak whose side face England in Saint-Etienne on Monday the prospect of following up their first win at a European Championship finals with qualification for the next round now appears realistic “Obviously England are the favourites” he said “But in football the favourite doesn’t always win” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Aditya Iyer | Salvador |

hesitation in dismissing Pepe He might face a 3-game ban (Source: AP) Related News Two knee-caps belonging to two vastly different number sevens — one a machine and the other an artist — were the deep focus of camera lenses in the lead-up to the Germany-Portugal game The first fitted uneasily above Bastian Schweinsteiger’s right shin wobbled during the pre-match training session forcing the paramedics to airlift him to a medical facility in Salvador The second meanwhile had caused an immense amount of pain to Cristiano Ronaldo and all of Portugal Minutes before kick-off at the majestic Arena Fonte Nova on Monday Germany coach Joachim Loew announced through his squad-sheet that Schweinsteiger though fit would play no part in Alemania’s starting eleven Loew’s counterpart Paulo Bento however couldn’t dare dream of benching the face of world football considering he is also the soul of this Portuguese side Just 45 minutes into the match how Bento must’ve wished he had For Ronaldo had done precious little In fact Ronaldo did even less than little as his side’s over-reliance on his legs crippled Portugal Consider the following as a worthy illustration of that dependence; and also a microcosm of everything that went wrong with Portugal in their opening game In the 34th minute just 120 seconds after conceding their second goal Nani found himself deep in Germany’s half with only left-back Benedikt Hoewedes to beat to have a real attempt at pulling one back Despite Hoewedes tugging at his maroon shirt the swift-footed Nani stepped over the ball cut to his left and charged dangerously towards goalie Manuel Neuer The duel had turned Mano-o-Mano Only Nani wanted to make it two-on-one Just as he reached the right edge of the box he all but halted and peered over his left shoulder in search of his former Manchester United team-mate His boss did arrive but along with German reinforcements Nani still tapped the ball left and allowed Ronaldo the first bite at the apple; and CR7 obliged by lining up his best shot But by this time his best wasn’t nearly good enough Per Mertesacker having positioned himself for the block well in time deflected Portugal’s dream chance into a nighmarish corner Instantly the Portuguese section of the 51000 strong crowd howled with disgust But it was too late — for Nani Ronaldo and Portugal Over the next 11 minutes and by the end of the first half they had let in two more goals and let out their best (and most volatile) defender in Pepe lost to a red card The match was over for everyone concerned except perhaps Germany’s Thomas Mueller ALL-ROUND THREAT Unlike Portugal Germany do not depend on one man Far from it With a midfield/frontline consisting of Mesut Ozil Sami Khedira Toni Kroos Mario Goetze captain Philipp Lahm and Mueller himself they don’t need to Yet somehow it’s almost always the last name on that list — a man who is neither a forward nor a midfielder — that lashes the back of the net at World Cups whether with long-rangers tap-ins or penalties Each of those finishing styles were put on display in Salvador as Mueller added three more to his five from South Africa to take his World Cup tally to eight from six matches He must be dreaming of his second consecutive Golden Boot just as his side must now be dreaming of their fourth golden trophy Looking too far ahead Sure But blame Mueller and a methodic Mannschaft for that In the 11th minute just a move or two after Germany’s Kroos tried to penetrate the Portuguese wall from the left Goetze now had his chance from the centre Dribbling the ball with great control the Bayern Munich man (one of six in the starting eleven) decided to go solo despite having defender Joao Pereira stuck to him like a leech As Goetze hurtled forward and entered the six-yard box Pereira still hadn’t let go So Goetze went down And Mueller’s penalty went in The goal of the game however was the only one Mueller didn’t strike In the 32nd minute Ozil slipped down the right flank and released Kroos from the centre towards goal Kroos fired but Portugal’s ‘keeper Rui Patricio got his fingertips to it From the resultant corner the goalie wouldn’t even sight the ball blindsided by a leaping Pepe (189 cm) and a soaring Mats Hummels (192 cm) Germany’s centreback Lahm had swerved his corner perfectly on to Hummels head and the big man nodded it in The match wasn’t over yet But it would be when Real Madrid’s Pepe foolishly caught Mueller in the face to stop the German from lurking too close If that wasn’t enough to flash him the red card just before half-time his following head butt against a fallen Mueller was With a gaping hole the size of Pepe in Portugal’s defence all through the second half no reinforcements could plug the German wave from
