Wild is the wind: the resource that could power the world

To counter this effect, turbines need to extract energy from the wind that’s above them. What Caldeira found was that that is exactly what can happen in parts of the North Atlantic, where heat “pours out of the ocean”, causing greater “cyclonic activity”. But could a farm the size of India really be built in […]

Women power: on ICC Women’s T20 World Cup

India’s campaign in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup may have ended on a disappointing note but it was not without positives. The crushing 85-run loss to Australia in Sunday’s final did highlight a few weaknesses: the batting came undone in a high-pressure chase, while the fielding and the running between wickets were mostly pedestrian.

Our Views: Buy today’s cheap oil to fill the nation’s energy reserve

This provision, perhaps taken as a subsidy to the energy industry, was left out of the final coronavirus disaster bill. But whatever small bump in oil prices the purchase might make, it would be short-lived and hardly constitutes a bailout of Big Oil. As a short-term measure, the U.S. Department of Energy announced it would […]

How World War II scientists invented a data-driven approach to fighting fascism

As a result of these findings, the F-scale in its final form was intended to measure ethnocentrism, superstition, aggression, cynicism, conservatism, and an inordinate interest in the private sex lives of others as the building blocks for a personality drawn to authoritarian leaders.

After a while, he expanded the restaurant’s ambit to entire India as he travelled deeper. TBC rustled up a salad of Lal bhaji, beetroot and paneer rather than the ones popular, and used […]

World’s oldest human DNA found in 800,000-year-old tooth of a cannibal

To reach these results, the researchers used a method called paleoproteomics — literally, the study of ancient proteins. Using mass spectrometry, which displays the masses of all the molecules in a sample, scientists can identify the specific proteins in a given fossil. Our cells build proteins according to instructions contained in our DNA, with three […]

Despite his multi-award winning status – he became the first black man to reach EGOT status in 2018 after scooping two Emmy, 11 Grammys, one Oscar and one Tony award, the star insists he is the same man off stage and on.
