traditional method called carbothermic reduction is expensive and energy-intensive So to cut down the cost the team turned to a cheap source of silicon — diatomaceous earth (DE) — and a more efficient chemical process called magnesiothermic reduction which converts this low-cost source of Silicon Dioxide (SiO2) to pure silicon nano-particles DE is an abundant silicon-rich sedimentary rock that is composed of the fossilised remains of diatoms deposited over millions of years “A significant finding in our research was the preservation of the diatom cell walls — structures known as frustules — creating a highly porous anode that allows easy access for the electrolyte” Mihri Ozkan research lead and professor of electrical engineering said To improve the adoption of electric vehicles we need much better batteries We believe diatomaceous earth which is abundant and inexpensive could be another sustainable source of silicon for battery anodes added Ozkan For all the latest Technology News

Competent Authority (2013) which was shortlisted for a fistful of awards Related News Title: Murder with Bengali Characteristics Author: Shovon Chowdhury Publisher: Aleph Book Company Pages: 184 Price: Rs 395 I’ve always had a soft corner for speculative fiction It’s not quite the same as science-fiction and it differs from fantasy literature in that while trying to re-imagine the human world authors stick to largely realistic methods But the genres are related Some masterpieces in the genre which like the present book blend in elements of crime fiction include Len Deighton’s 1978 bestseller SS-GB where Scotland Yard detective Douglas Archer finds himself working in a Nazi-occupied Britain and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union (2007) by Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Chabon in which the Jewish people were settled in Alaska after WWII rather than Palestine a fact that has strange messianic ramifications Share This Article Related Article India too finds a place in speculative fiction Rajshekar Basu’s 1920s satire The Scripture Read Backwards has a Bengali empire as the dominant cultural and political global power (so there’s no market for fairness creams; instead Englishwomen are doing their best to darken their skins) Michael Moorcock’s The Warlord of the Air (1971) is set in a world where the British never left India but instead with Winston Churchill as Viceroy carry on with their ever-expanding colonialism Quite a few novels exploit this “what if colonialism never ended” theme as in SM Stirling’s The Peshawar Lancers (2002) where Europe has been destroyed by a meteor and Delhi is the world capital The most interesting examples of speculative crime fiction with Indian elements (I’m leaving out my own Once Upon a Time in Scandinavistan from this discussion) are Jonathan Franzen’s 1988 debut The Twenty-Seventh City and Shashi Warrier’s latest terrorist thriller Noordin’s Gift (2014) The former has the Indian-origin chief of police S Jammu her psychopathic henchman Singh and the fair Agent Asha hatch an elaborate conspiracy to turn the US city of St Louis into an Indian fiefdom In the latter set in 2025 the foreign hand is as usual plotting an attack on south India Although there’s very little sci-fi (except for the occasional pin-drop silent auto-rickshaw) Warrier anticipates severe geopolitical changes including a Taliban takeover of Kashmir Coming to Chowdhury his Murder with Bengali Characteristics is a free-standing sequel to the successful comic novel The Competent Authority (2013) which was shortlisted for a fistful of awards Here we are transported to a Bengal which in 2035 is no longer part of mainland India but has been annexed as a Chinese province with Kolkata as its capital city On the very first page there’s a strangulation murder with seemingly Thuggish characteristics Chinese police inspector Li immediately zones in on the New Thug Society which has its offices on 36 Elgin Avenue; a social organisation determined to liberate Bengal Li is a fairly un-xenophobic colonial officer; his take on the difference between Bengalis and Chinese is that “they eat fish heads we eat pig ears” Also involved are two seedy businessmen Verma and Agarwal protecting their own interests which wouldn’t benefit from a conflict between Indians and Chinese The duo like to mull over their affairs in that old favourite hangout Olypub on Park Street (proving that you can take Kolkata out of India but not change its essential nature) where “an ancient waiter tottered up to their table with a bottle of cheap whisky and a peg measure Verma estimated his age to be ninety-seven The unions were strong here” This short novel is thus a rambling satire about a brave new world full of oddball futurism and mind-bending political scenarios and almost every page makes the bulbs flash over a reader’s head There are plenty of quirky sci-fi elements that keep me amused such as speaking magazines with artificial intelligence built in And AR Rahman’s music is considered to be classical Indian But what it doesn’t quite do is make the grade as a compelling crime novel It relies too much on cutting jokes and less on the mandatory page-turning drive There should ideally have been a ratio where plot development matched quotable lines and weird infodumps Of course there’s nothing wrong with a crazy book going a bit off the mark but it does slow down the narrative when one laughs too much Nevertheless fans of The Competent Authority will get another dose of that same worldview in chapters that

following an excavation at the Madjedbebe rock shelter near Kakadu National Park in northern Australia scientists saidEmmanuel Macron FNMF/N MERGUI/Flickr French president’s climate talent search nabs 18 foreign scientists By Elisabeth PainDec 11 2017 2:00 PM French President Emmanuel Macron’s effort to lure disgruntled foreign climate scientists to France—especially from the United States—has produced its first harvest France today announced that Macron’s Make Our Planet Great Again initiative has recruited its first class of 18 scientists Of the new recruits 13 including a few French nationals now work in the United States whereas others are based in Canada India and elsewhere in Europe One recruit is Louis Derry a US citizen who studies Earth’s critical zone—its life-supporting skin—at Cornell University When he first heard about Macron’s move to attract about 50 high-level foreign climate scientists for France he thought it had to be another swipe at US President Donald Trump by the satirical newspaper Le Canard enchané But it was real In June just a few hours after Trump announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris climate accord Macron cheekily invited disgruntled US scientists to relocate to France A week later the French government unveiled a website that soon spelled out the details: It was offering 3- to 5-year grants worth up to 15 million each Derry who says he liked both the scientific opportunity and the collateral benefits was one of more than 1800 scientists to express initial interest in applying “I think it’s hard to find too many downsides to living in Paris for a little while” he says Ultimately 450 researchers were deemed eligible to apply for the grants and 255 submitted applications Ninety were then invited to submit proposals in collaboration with a French institution The French National Research Agency ultimately received 57 proposals which were reviewed by a nine-member international panel chaired by Corinne Le Quéré director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in Norwich UK The proposals were “high quality and in cutting-edge fields” Le Quéré says Macron and French research minister Frédérique Vidal announced the 18 initial grants at a Paris event held on the eve of the One Climate Summit which aims to harness global financial backing for climate action on the 2-year anniversary of the Paris climate accord The initiative has divided French scientists Many praise Macron’s vision; although 18 new scientists won’t create “a revolution” says paleoclimatologist Frédéric Parrenin at the Institute for Geosciences of the Environment in Grenoble France “this program is highly symbolic: France now takes a leading role in the world to push forward climate policies” But it’s not clear whether the cost at least 285 million will come out of existing budgets and the newcomers will have “a very peculiar status” working outside the classical research system at a much higher salary than their colleagues says Didier Swingedouw a climate dynamics physicist at the Oceanic and Continental Environments and Paleoenvironments Laboratory in Pessac France “I could easily imagine that this will create some sources of tension” In a public statement SNCS-FSU a trade union for researchers based near Paris criticized the initiative as “a pure communication stunt that doesn’t bring any additional support for French research” SNCS-FSU also called the benefits given to scientists from abroad “an insult to French scientists … whose commitment is not correctly rewarded in their own country” Part of the French scientific community has long called for more funding for institutions and more permanent positions for young researchers who often see themselves forced out of academia after 6 years of postdoc because of French employment laws Meet the winners Derry who has lived in France before will make the planet great again part-time: The program allows him to work at the Paris Institute of Physics of the Globe while keeping his tenured position at Cornell “I anticipate spending about half my year on each side of the Atlantic” he says “I hope to serve as a bit of a bridge between the US and French critical zone programs and communities” Another winner Camille Parmesan who is originally from Texas and now a professor at the University of Plymouth in the United Kingdom says that at first “none of us [knew] what to make of” Macron’s initiative But she decided it was “absolutely fabulous and a very appropriate response to Trump pulling out of the Paris accords” Parmesan who studies how global warming might affect species and ecosystems was also feeling stymied by what she sees as declining funding opportunities in the United States and United Kingdom Now she will join a center for theoretical and experimental ecology in Moulis France where starting next fall her work will include studying how animal movements caused by climate change might bring diseases into Europe The 15 million grant is “the opportunity I’ve been waiting for” says Parmesan noting that France also offers “some really unique facilities and infrastructure” that could aid her work Italian climate scientist Alessandra Giannini has been based at the International Research Institute for Climate and Society affiliated with Columbia University’s Earth Institute in Palisades New York since 2003 She’s looking forward to the “opportunity to really focus on the research” rather than scrambling for funds she says Giannini will be joining two meteorology and oceanographic laboratories in Paris where she will investigate the physical processes underlying uncertainty in climate change projections in the tropics But she doesn’t see her move “as a drastic change because nowadays our scientific community is global [and] we work on similar topics” Spanish marine biologist Núria Teixidó who holds a position at Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn in Naples Italy and is currently a visiting scientist at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove California says her new grant will give her the means to hire help and develop scientific independence By joining the Ocean Observatory of Villefranche-sur-Mer in France Teixidó says she will also be able to expand her research on the effect of ocean acidification on marine ecosystems to include possible mitigation measures For some winners accepting Macron’s invitation comes with risks Some will leave tenured positions and for many the details of their 5-year positions still need to be worked out There also are some risks for France Le Quéré says “If France invests in new instruments and new areas of research and then the people leave … you lose all this investment” But “if [the winners] remain in France” she says funders may face the question of how to maintain support for a growing field Together with Germany which joined the initiative in September with a commitment of 15 million France will conduct a second round of proposal evaluations next spring “It’s very clear that France is going to address climate change” Le Quéré says “Not just in terms of research but in terms of action” Here is the list of the 18 winners: *Update 12 December 3:33 pm: This story has been updated to include comments from scientists who won the grants and from French scientists who are not
