Pratibha Patil, Kalam key points in BJP-Cong talks on presidential poll

The electoral context of two former presidents Pratibha Patil and APJ Abdul Kalam were the main points of discussion between the leaders of the National Democratic Alliance (NLD) Narendra Modi and Congressional President Sonia Gandhi on Friday.

Sources said Union ministers Venkaiah Naidu and Rajnath Singh emphasized that the congressional-led government had not consulted the opposition but continued the Patil nomination in 2007.

The incident went so far as to counteract earlier allegations of opposition that the Modi government did not speak to them.

During the meeting, some unfortunate allegations were also opposed by Patil’s husband.

Naidu and Singh spoke with the congress president at his 10 Janpath residence for half an hour.

At the meeting, Naidu and Singh also reminded the president of Congress as APJ Abdul Kalam was elected in 2002 as a consensus option to Prohibit the Left, which has its own candidate.

The president can not be a rival for the Prime Minister or his puppet
Sources said Naidu explained the purpose of the meeting: to know the opinion of the opposition parties to the prime minister and party leader to choose a candidate.

Government citations also said that the views of Congress would be “to seriously consider”.

The two sides have not discussed names of potential candidates.

Singh and Gandhi Naidu would have asked if he had a candidate in mind, but being elusive. Congress argued that it was not necessary for the NDA to conduct interviews with them without revealing the name of their election to the presidential candidate.

“There is no question of reaching consensus when they gave no name. We can talk about it with our allies and other political party leaders only if names are given,” said party leader Mallikarjun Kharge.

Gandhi had met with PCI (M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury a few minutes before Naidu and Singh – part of a three-member group composed of BJP President Amit Shah to negotiate with other parties – is abandoned .

The panel must meet Yechury his party office in the afternoon.

Government involvement prevented opposition parties from finalizing a presidential candidate at a meeting on Wednesday.

According to sources, the NDA is trying to win Sharad Pawar from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) of the opposition camp.

One day after speaking with Praful Patel party leader Naidu called for a meeting with Pawar on Thursday. Veteran Maharashtra responded by saying that he will be in Delhi for a few days for further talks.

With only 20,000 votes to be learned from elsewhere, the Narendra Modi government seems poised to push its candidate into Rashtrapati Bhavan in the next poll.

The presidential election will be held on July 17 and the votes will be counted three days later.

Science Leader No More? China Challenges US Dominance

Science Leader No More? China Challenges US Dominance

The United States continues to lead the world in scientific research, at least by publishing the majority of biomedical studies in leading journals and losing more money in R & D.

But that may not be the case for a long time, said a group of scientists in an opinion piece published today (June 15) in JCI Insight magazine.

US dominance in the scientific world is gradually declining, researchers found, largely because China has invested large sums of money in science in the past two decades.

In 2015, China’s biomedical research teams ranked the number 4 in the list of 10 for the total number of new findings published in six first-line journals, according to the researchers. In 2000, China was not even among the top 10 on this list (at 14 o’clock), the researchers reported.

In addition, China spent 75 percent of what the US Has spent a total of R & D in 2015, according to the researchers. In 2000, China spent only 12 percent of what the United States spent, which they found.

However, future research could be collaborative. More scientists in the United States and around the world are making new discoveries and advancements in working with international partners, according to researchers.

To get a better idea of the most advanced countries in the scientific world, the researchers studied six major journals (JAMA, Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, Cell, Nature and Science) and four 2000 mid-range journals in 2015. The researchers also Analyzed R & D investments in each country of this period.

Over the past 15 years, research funds in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and other European countries have stagnated, while China funds has increased significantly, noted searchers.

In 2015, the first 10 slots for the publication of biomedical research articles in top-level journals are destined for the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, France / Japan Switzerland, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia and Korea South / Sweden / Italy.

Meanwhile, the first 15 countries that spent more on biomedical R & D were the United States, China, Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, South Korea and Singapore.

These analyzes show that South Korea and Singapore are high on the list, according to the researchers.

The results suggest that the United States may one day move to its leading position in the world of scientific and medical research, the study authors said.

“It’s time for US politicians to reflect and decide whether the year-to-year uncertainty in the National Institutes of Health budget [NIH] and cuts are in our best social and national interest” said lead research piece, opinion “Said Dr. Bishr Omary, the Michigan Medical Director of Medicine at the University of Michigan in a statement.

The current road America could discourage the next generation of brilliant American minds from engaging in science, Omary said.

“If we continue down the road we lead, it will be more difficult to maintain our advantage and, more importantly, we want to disillusion the next generation of living biomedical scientists and enthusiasts who see a limited future in the search for a scientist or doctor – career Of investigator, “he said. [Creative genius: the brightest minds in the world]

The researchers carried out the study, as they wonder if the NIH budget, at least until 2015, would affect United States position in the world, they said.

During their research, they discovered that although the Chinese scientists who formed the United States used to work here, they now return to China after the end of their education.

In addition, Singapore recruits the best scientists in the United States and in other countries, now that the country is going to spend more on R & D, the authors of the study noted.

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Kedar Jadhav eclipsing R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja against Bangladesh must worry India

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Kedar Jadhav eclipsing R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja against Bangladesh must worry India

There were some balls in waiting point for delivery. The lack of races has stifled the batters. The off-spinner rips the ball in his hand, while waiting at the top of his mark. This is the last ball in the middle of a tournament, and a throw-free throw is released on the cards.

The launcher waits for battery to send his delivery outside Edgbaston. But effortlessly, it simplifies, as it has done during the last 11 installments for its younger spell so far. It does not provide a place and does not pour down. The duration is not too ambitious. It is not too crowded or short. The stem of the ball, with only the wood as a target.

The left-hander Tamim Iqbal adheres to the script and moves to the position for the scan. However, the simplicity of delivery overwhelms the shooting attack. The ball rolled around the window, the bat beats and hit the target. The pitcher is in ecstasy. Run to celebrate the dismissal of Tamim set for his captain Virat Kohli.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were not effective against Bangladesh on Thursday. Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin APRavichandran were not effective against Bangladesh on Thursday.

The Rising could and should have been Ashwin R. Instead, it is Kedar Jadhav. Jadhav just drinking in domestic cricket and is on the team for his batting ability. But on Thursday, Kohli threw the ball in the hope that doing the job, team leader R Ashwin could not.

A few off and more points later, the pressure stacks. Now it was time for Mushfiqur Rahim to attempt a jailbreak. He jumped in the fold, turned another simple Jadhav delivery in all its heyday and won directly to Kohli in the middle of the gate.

Mushfiqur was the other batter from Bangladesh who settled in the center. It was the other half of the association with Tamim threatening.

And like Tamim, Jadhav had shown him the way to the pavilion as well. With these movements, the fate of the game had been turned into cartridges. The course of Jadhav had finally pushed the Ashwin split and the lack of impact in the shadows.

Ashwin had a glorious Cricket season at home. The best drummers in the world have become disoriented, unable to decode Ashwin’s intelligence.

We expected it to be the puzzle of India, that opponents are struggling to solve the Champions Trophy as well.

But layers that work with cherry red may not produce the same success with the white ball. Ashwin had a decent one-day series against England in January, but it was too short to warm up during a global event.

After physical problems, which forced him to sit outside the IPL, his place in the XI game of the first matches of the Champions Trophy was not sure.

The surprise defeat Sri Lanka meant that India has asked their test spinner for their match against South Africa. And he made an immediate impact by packing Hashim Amla to win the first match hit of India.

The pacens took from the beginning that it had provided to the group AB of Villiers & Co. to a lower cost, while another escaped pork Ashwin.

But the captain has supported Ashwin. Warmed up after his first competition match, the team awaits him to take a tour of Bangladesh.

After Bhuvneshwar Kumar has tried two shots early, the stage was lit by Ashwin Shiny.

Instead, Tamim and Mushfiqur thrived on Ashwin’s variations. The pressure could not be established while the Indian off-spinner varied length, line and type of delivery in order to escape the batsans in exchange for consistency.

Ashwin is a clever pitcher, whose variations make it difficult to achieve in test cricket with men around the bat and increasing support surfaces. But door-to-door meals Cricket times require simplicity to Kedar Jadhav.

The need for consistency when he felt more Tamim became so comfortable against Ashwin played with his bowls at will.

China’s Quantum Satellite Dispatches Transmissions Over a Record Distance of 1,200 Kilometres

China’s Quantum Satellite Dispatches Transmissions Over a Record Distance of 1,200 Kilometres

A Chinese satellite sent quantum transmissions over a distance of 1,200 km (746 miles), twelve times as far as the previous record, a breakthrough in technology that could be used to provide secure messages, the state media said Friday.

China launched the world’s first quantum satellite in August to help establish “pirate” communications between space and land, according to state media at the time.

The feat opens up “good prospects” for quantum communications, said Pan Jianwei, chief scientist of the Chinese team, quantum space experiments (Quess), according to Xinhua news agency.

Scientists have exploited the phenomenon of quantum entanglement, in which a particle can instantly affect a distant twin, exceeding a certain long distance between them, a situation called “distant action of fear” by the award-winning physical physicist Nobel Albert Einstein, to Xinhua added.

The team was able to distribute pairs of interlaced photons over 1200 km, he said, exceeding the distance of 100 km (62 miles), where the plot had been achieved.

The technology so far is “the only way to establish secure keys between two distant places on earth without relying on reliable relaying,” Pan Xinhua said, referring to encrypted messages.
The new development “illustrates the possibility of a future global quantum communication network,” said Science magazine, which published the results of the Chinese team on its site.

China is still behind the United States and Russia in the field of space technology, although President Xi Jinping prioritized the advancement of its space program, citing national security and defense.

China insists its space program is for peaceful purposes, but the United States Department of Defense showed its growing spatial capabilities, saying it pursued activities aimed at preventing opponents from using space-in-crisis resources.

The launch of China’s first quantum experimental satellite was a “remarkable progress in cryptography research,” the Pentagon said this month.

MALCOLM Turnbull would have called China “frénemie” Australia at a public event in Sydney.
The report comes a day after the appearance of US President Donald Trump’s “off-the-record” mime appearance in Parliament’s assembly hall from noon to noon.

Mr. Turnbull commented on China at a public event in Sydney last October, Fairfax Media reported today.

It was revealed today amid growing concern about China’s influence on Australian politics and a series of tougher public comments by the prime minister on the Asian giant in recent weeks.

The comment, which means that someone who seems to be out in favor despite the underlying rivalry to a scenario would not be observation made in a pre-dinner drink session.

“You mean our friend-foe,” said Mr. Turnbull when the issue of the militarization of Beijing’s artificial islands in the South China Sea rose in the event.
It is taken as another sign that the position of the Australian government in China is stronger.

The Office of the Prime Minister has not commented on its use of the word “friend-enemy”.

Last month, Mr. Turnbull used an important speech at the Shangri La Security Summit in Singapore to warn China against the intimidation of its smaller neighbors.

“A coercive China found its neighbors feel of applications that give up their autonomy and strategic space, and try to counter Beijing to strengthen alliances and partnerships between them and especially with the United States,” said M. Turnbull.

He also commented on the conflict in the South China Sea, saying: “Maintaining the rule of law in our region, respect for the sovereignty of nations large and small is the key to peace and continued stability.”

Meanwhile, Beijing has responded to recent reports of China’s influence on Australian politics with scorn.
Chinese Ambassador to Australia, Cheng Jingye, said yesterday that the report had been “made in the air.”

“I have heard these accusations more than once since I was assigned here – in Chinese, we call it cooked rice during the night, which means repeating the same things over and over,” said M. Cheng at a Business Council event Australia-China in Parliament.

Chinese Ambassador to Australia Cheng Jingye reacted angrily to statements about China’s influence on Australian politics.

ISIS Chief Baghdadi May Have Died, Claims Russian Military

MOSCOW: Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Thursday it was reviewing the news that a Russian air strike near the Syrian city of Raqqa could have killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in late May.

The air strike was launched after Russian forces in Syria have received reports that a meeting of ISIS leaders was planned, the ministry said in a statement on its Facebook page.

“On May 28, after the drones were used to confirm information about the place and time of the meeting of ISIS leaders, between twelve and thirty-five ET in the 1930s, Russian air forces They launched a strike at the command post where the leaders were, “the statement said.

“According to the information currently verified through various channels, also present at the meeting, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been eliminated as a result of the strike,” the ministry said.

The US-led coalition against ISIS said it could not confirm the Russian report that Baghdadi might have died.

The strike killed several leaders of the group, and about 30 field commanders and up to 300 of their guards, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

ISIS leaders gathered at the command center in a suburb south of Raqqa to discuss possible forms of city retirement activists, according to the statement.

The United States were informed about the time and place of the strike, said the Russian army.

ISIS fighters are close to defeat in the two thousand capitals of the group’s territory, Mosul, in Iraq and in Syria Raqqa.

Russian forces support the Syrian government that are fighting ISIS primarily from the west, while a US-led coalition supports Iraqi government forces fighting ISIS.

The latest public video shows Baghdadi dressed in clerical clothes declaring his clandestine caliphate from the pulpit of the medieval mosque Grand Nuri al-Mosul in 2014.

Born Ibrahim al-Samarrai, Iraqi Baghdadi is a 46-year-old who quit Al Qaeda in 2013, two years after the capture and death of Oussama bin Laden’s group chief.

Rami Abdulrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, questioned the report that Baghdadi might have died.

He said that according to his information, Baghdadi was in another part of Syria at the end of May.

“The information is that at the end of last month, Baghdadi was in Deir al-Zor, in the region between Deir al-Zor and Iraq in Syrian territory,” he said by telephone.

As for what Baghdadi would have done in this place, he told them: “Is it reasonable that Baghdadi stands between the sword and the wall in the coalition (United States) and Russia?”

China’s disturbing wedding trend of groomsmen assaulting bridesmaids

China's disturbing wedding trend of groomsmen assaulting bridesmaids

China’s disturbing wedding trend of groomsmen assaulting bridesmaids

Teasing the bride and groom on their wedding day is part of the Chinese wedding custom. However, in recent years this custom has been distorted alarmingly in mainland China to include sexual abuse of the godfathers of honor.

The trend is the center of attention thanks to two recent cases. The first is a viral video that circulates on social networks in China.

The video shows a small bridesmaid and sexually assaulted by two men in a car in Xi’an city. The woman screams and struggles as the two men forcefully abduct her underwear, laugh and order her to “make sexual noises.”
The video was uploaded on social networks June 8 and became viral. Two days later, on June 10, Xi’an police took custody of 19 and 21; The victim, however, said he did not pursue the case against them.

Very often, bridesmaids refrain from reporting abuse to the police because they do not want to “stain” their best friend’s wedding with a criminal investigation.

In addition, it is likely that wedding grooms or wedding guests would defend the assault by claiming that it was part of the Chinese custom of “naohun” – which literally means “to turbulence during a wedding.”

However, the concept of bridesmaids is very Western, not Chinese. If you look closely at the Chinese custom of the wedding, the Chinese bride is assisted by a “wedding master” who is supposed to know all the ritualistic etiquette. Marriage was mainly settled in China until the end of 1900.

It is customary for wedding guests to force the groom to drink, as well as taunts the bride to “stimulate” their first night together. In some areas, wealthy families hired prostitutes to entertain guests, but it was not part of the usual practice.

But now the “naohun” custom has somehow provided an excuse for sexual assault and harassment at the wedding.

“One of the high-risk functions – sexual harassment, rape, and now death”
Another recent case of “naohun” led to worrying extremes ended in tragedy on June 13 in Guangzhou with the death of one of the bridesmaids.

According to reports by local press after the godfathers presented the usual red gift package for the bride’s family, the family reportedly opened the door.

The men ran and chased the brides who ran up to hide. One of the bridesmaids, who are hidden on the fourth floor, died when she fell from a balcony.

Although the case is still under study, users could not help the association of death of the maid of honor “naohun.” Here are some comments in an article on China’s Weibo social media platform:

The maid of honor is a high risk factor – sexual harassment, rape and death now.

Accident? How could he fall if no one pushed? Is sexual harassment and breasts groping not enough? If the custom is so vulgar and night in the life of the people, the government must intervene.

For the victim, to find complicated justice
As for viral video, the media and Internet users affiliated to the State sentenced the two men who attacked the woman.

But after the local news have reported that the lady had forgiven the two men because they were known, some have directed their anger against the lady:

We believe that the maid of honor was intimidated and closed the men online, since she does not want to continue with the matter.

Some were more sympathetic about the maid’s decision. Weibo user “I love Google”, commented a current topic:

Do you want to know why the victim does not want to continue with the matter? Because they have an affiliation with relatives. On the other hand had to mobilize social pressure, accusing the victim to make them lose face and she could not stay in the local community if the case continued.
However, the case is criminal. Even if the victim does not want to prosecute, they can file charges. Police and prosecutors must do their duty.

How To Clear NEET 2018 In First Attempt Without Coaching


National Entry Sperm Eligibility Test or NEET UG has been designed for admission to an undergraduate (MBBS / BDS) or graduate (MD / MS) degree. The test is carried out by CBSE (Central Council for Secondary Education).

The test was introduced in replacement of All India Premedical Test. The review was introduced in 2012, but was postponed for one year. The examination took place on 5 May 2013 for the first time.

The board exams will end soon, students must be in the hex and under pressure to choose going. Not only the board of students, people who want to pursue their higher education. It is never an easy task to decide on his career. It is normal to panic a little. Give yourself some time. Explore the options. Find out what your strength is and what your weakness is. Once you have done that. All that remains is to prepare for the competitive exam is done for the course you want to pursue your career. Make it harder to say. Of course it is, but hey! No one said it was impossible.

No matter how many books you read. As soon as the exams approach, there is a blow “examophobia” that develops in our minds and continues to accumulate. You study every day in a row, but it seems impossible to even go to the bathroom which is right next door. These words will look you back as if you really had insulted the book just catching it.

SpaceX’s Mars colony plan: How Elon Musk plans to build a million-person city

SpaceX’s billionaire founder and CEO simply published the plan, which was unveiled at a conference in Mexico in September 2016 in the newspaper Nuevo Espacio.

The commentary on musk, titled “Making Species Humanity Multi-planetary”, is available on the New Space website until July 5.

“In my opinion, the publication of this paper not only provides an opportunity for the space community to read the printed vision SpaceX with all the tables of context, but also serves as a valuable reference for archival studies and future planning, New Space Editor, Chief (and former “NASA Czar”) Scott Hubbard wrote in a statement. [SpaceX Interplanetary for Mars Images]

The vision of Mars Musk focuses on a reusable rocket combo and spacecraft which it called interplanetary transport system (ITS).

The amplifier and spacecraft will be powered by the Raptor SpaceX engine, still under development, including musk says it is approximately three times stronger than Merlin engines than the power of the Falcon 9 rocket company.

The amplifier, with its 42 Raptors will be the most powerful rocket in history, for the moment. It will be able to launch 300 tons (330 tons) in low Earth orbit (LEO) or 550 tons (600 tons) in a consumable variant, said musk. By way of comparison, NASA’s famous Saturn V rocket, the current record holder, could have ‘only’ 135 tons (150 tons).

Its launch spacecraft rocket into Earth orbit, then down to a specific landing about 20 minutes later. And “point” is not a hyperbole: “With the addition of maneuver propellers, we believe we can reintroduce the media on the launch pad,” musk wrote in his new space article, citing Falcon landings first stage 9 more precisely SpaceX .

Throwing propellers many spacecraft and tankers (which complement spacecraft tanks in orbit) during their life; The rockets will be designed to fly about 1,000 times each, musk wrote.

The spacecraft, meanwhile, will be in charge of orbit, then leave in mass when the Earth and Mars will be aligned favorably. This happens once every 26 months.

Lastly, musk wrote, which plans 1000 or more SU spacecrafts, each with 100 or more people, leaving Earth orbit in each of these windows on Mars. The architecture could design 1 million people to Mars in the next 50 to 100 years, he said.

The ships would also fly to Mars using its new Raptor engines and methane produced from propellant on Mars.

Each ETI boat could probably make 12 to 15 deep trips during its operative life, musk wrote, and each oil could probably fly in orbit the Earth 100 times.

Reuse of STIs is essential to make Mars colonization affordable. This reuse – in combination with other measures such as ground-based spacecraft refueling and propeller-making on Mars – could bring the price of a red-planet discovery to $ 200,000 or more per person, an estimated $ 10 billion Using conventional space flight systems, says musk.

His spacecraft would start flying to Mars in about 10 years, if all goes well, said musk. However, he acknowledged that success is not guaranteed.

“There are a lot of risks. It’s going to cost a lot,” musk wrote. “There are good chances that we did not succeed, but we will do our best and try to make progress as much as possible.”

SpaceX and the history of overcoming adverse weather forecasts. When Musk founded the company in 2002, he wrote: “I thought I had maybe 10 percent chance of doing anything – even an orbiting rocket, let alone going beyond March and taking it seriously.”

Chinese astronomy satellite placed into orbit by Long March rocket

Chinese astronomy satellite placed into orbit by Long March rocket

China’s first X-ray astronomy satellite was launched Thursday on a study mission in the Milky Way galaxy of black holes and pulsars, remains left behind by a star burning its nuclear fuel.

The hard X-ray modulation telescope also detect gamma-ray bursts, the most violent explosions in the universe and try to help astronomers connect gravitational wave bursts, visible waves through the cosmos generated by catastrophic events such as supernova explosions And black hole fusions.

The renowned orbiting X-ray observatory or Huiyan Insight after launch on Thursday is the first Chinese space telescope and the second space mission dedicated to astronomy after a Chinese particle physical probe was sent orbit in 2015 to look for signs Of dark matter.

“Prior to commissioning, only used observational data from foreign satellites could be used,” said Xiong Shaolin, a scientist at the Institute of High Energy Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. “It was very difficult for Chinese astronomers to make the important results without our own instruments.”

“The only way to make original creations is to build our own observational instruments,” Xiong said in a report published by the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

“Now, Chinese scientists have created this space telescope with its many unique advantages, and it is quite possible to discover new phenomena, strange and unexpected in the universe.”

The X-ray telescope was launched Thursday at 0300 GMT (1100 EDT Wednesday) aboard a rocket from the main market 4B of the Jiuquan space center in the Gobi desert in northwest China. The takeoff took place at 11 am Thursday, Beijing time.

The three-stage Long March 4B amplifier powered by hydrazine produced the Huiyan telescope in a 335-mile-high orbit (540 km) inclined at 43 degrees to the equator, according to tracking data released by the Army of U.S. It is very close to the planned orbit of X-ray telescope

Ground controllers plan to activate and test the observatory over the next five months to enter service later this year, fulfilling a mission first proposed by Chinese scientists in 1994 and officially approved by the Chinese government in 2011, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The Huiyan 5500 pound (2500 kg) spacecraft is designed for the four-year mission.

Its three X-ray instruments, ordered to observe low-, medium- and high-energy X-rays, are sensitive to 1,000 to 250,000 volts of electrons, an energy range spanning the energy of a medical x-ray.

The Earth’s atmosphere absorbs light signals to X-rays, so astronomers have to build and launch satellites for work.

X-ray observers are especially suitable for studies of black holes and neutron stars, two types of denser objects in the universe created after supernovae, explosions at the end of a star’s life.

Unlike the X-ray telescopes launched by NASA and the European Space Agency, the Chinese Huiyan mission uses grazing mirrors, which must be extremely thin to reflect high-frequency X-ray waves.

Chinese officials said they do not have the skills to build these kind of flat mirrors, so scientists have developed a backup plan that does not depend on traditional imagery.

The method of observation, called demodulation, “can help reconstruct the image of X-ray sources using data from detectors without relatively simple imaging, such as a” collimator “telescope that collects and stores X-ray photons Parallel to a specified address, “Xinhua said.

Scientists said the Chinese X-ray telescope might observe brighter than other X-ray missile targets because the method of diffusive demodulation of other X-ray telescopes reflect and focus X-ray photons on detectors.
