behind climate change – carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) In a study published in the journal Applied Catalysis B: Environmental scientists have described how they created an advanced

balancing regions and caste equations political leaders said The induction of Shiv Pratap Shukla as a minister highlighted the importance of the Brahmin vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party they said File image of Shiv Pratap Singh ANI The 65-year-old Shukla who belongs to Gorakhpur —the citadel of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath —joined the Union council of ministers just days after Mahendra Nath Pandey from Ghazipur also in eastern Uttar Pradesh was made state BJP chief Shukla and Pandey are Brahmins and the moves are being seen as efforts by the party to keep the community in its fold for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma in Uttar Pradesh is also a Brahmin "Brahmins are being given their due The expansion is well thought out and balanced This will strengthen the party for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls" a BJP insider said In a bid however to also embrace the western parts of the state Modi did a fine balancing act by picking up Satyapal Singh a former IPS officer representing Baghpat in the Lok Sabha as a minister of state Often referred to as a giant killer Singh had trounced mighty Jat leader and Rashtriya Lok Dal supremo Ajit Singh relegating him to the third spot in the west Uttar Pradesh constituency Brahmins account for over 10 per cent of the electorate in the state and are considered a force to reckon with in the highly caste-based electoral politics in almost all its regions – Bundelkhand Rohilkhand Purvanchal Avadh and western Uttar Pradesh Traditionally seen as Congress supporters the community started supporting the BJP in large numbers in the post-Mandal era However sections later also voted for Mayawati’s BSP Perhaps keeping this factor in mind ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections Pandey was picked up from eastern Uttar Pradesh bordering Bihar "Purvanchal (eastern Uttar Pradesh) has once again been given importance in the ministry" BJP leader and state spokesman Shalabh Mani Tripathi said Pandey an MP from Chandauli shot into prominence after his induction into the Union government in July last year just months before the Assembly election in the state The slot has now been filled by Shukla with Pandey being handed over the mantle of the party in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the crucial parliamentary election less than two years away Similarly the resignation of Sanjeev Balyan from the Union ministry was filled by Singh Balyan a Jat is from western Uttar Pradesh —as is the MP from Baghpat who like him also belongs to the community that dominates West Uttar Pradesh Singh who wanted to be a scientist before he joined the IPS in 1980 and was given the Maharashtra cadre had earlier said his "inner voice" urged him to change his profession He quit the job of a police officer became an MP and now as a Union minister aims at working "for the entire country with renewed energy" Tripathi stressed the BJP was working on its ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ (development for all) agenda "The government’s core issue is development for all areas taking along everyone" he said The elevation of Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi who belongs to Rampur in Uttar Pradesh and is a member of the Rajya Sabha to

sent everyone scurrying to find out the meaning of word ‘eugenics’ Karan Johar cited nepotism as ‘easy access’ You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to observe how Saif Ali Khan and Karan Johar’s response to the whole nepotism debate was plain ignorance But let’s not enlighten you on words like ‘eugenics’ (which is by the way hugely misleading) Because that will consume your time and it’s of little value as Kangana Ranaut’s open letter which she penned for Mid-Day addressing the nepotism debate just landed on our desktop And trust me reading it is worth your time In contrast to Saif and Karan’s immature and silly take on nepotism Kangana Ranaut’s open letter reads more like a well-articulated essay It has grace and objectivity It should be appreciated for its clarity of thought The flow of words carries a rhythm The words seem to have come from a hidden trove of wisdom gained after years of toil and struggle Each and every single word seems to have been earned The whole open letter is economical in nature Above all it talks about things that you wouldn’t imagine the film industry to openly discuss In an industry where female actors are supposed to giggle at an actor’s witty remarks this open letter almost feels like an act of rebellion Only that it shouldn’t feel like one Kangana Ranaut’s words should be a normalcy which is otherwise eschewed in the lanes of Bollywood If on one hand Kangana Ranaut’s words reflect upon Ayn Rand’s philosophy they also provide astute insights into work ethics and morals Kangana has single-handedly taken this debate beyond nepotism and has introduced some new words to Bollywood Here’s a quick look at these new no-nonsense words that Bollywood will need some time to learn and bring into their daily vernacular: Objectivity The oxford dictionary defines the words as: (of a person or their judgment) not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts In her open letter Kangana wrote “Nepotism on many levels fails the test of objectivity and rationale I have acquired these values from the ones who have found great success and discovered a higher truth much before me” Rationale The Oxford dictionary defines the word as a set of reasons or a logical basis for a course of action or belief Kangana argues that it’s important for somebody to think logically before taking a decision An individual’s decision shouldn’t be influenced by temperamental human emotions Individual Individuality is a rarity in Bollywood as it likes to work in close knits groups Kangana Ranaut just reminded Bollywood that individuals do exist In her open letter Kangana wrote “Today I can afford to have the willpower to stand for these values but tomorrow I might fail and help my own children realise their dreams of stardom In that case I believe that I would have failed as an individual” Collective humanity In her open letter Kangana argues that our work will shape the future We will be judged by our choices She wrote “Greats like Vivekananda Einstein and Shakespeare didn’t belong to a select few They belonged to collective humanity Their work has shaped our future and our work will shape the future of the coming generations” Human spirit Kangana also wrote about the human spirit that moves this world She wrote “Even in today’s times there are plenty of examples where it has repeatedly been proven that beyond the superficiality of branded clothes polished accents and a sanitised upbringing exists grit genuine hard-work diligence eagerness to learn and the gigantic power of the human spirit” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Sandip G | Colombo | Updated: August 5 2017 8:25 am Rangana Herath picked up four wickets but gave away 154 runs (Source: AP) Related News For the first time in the series Rangana Herath lost his fabled composure At his accomplice Dilruwan Perera who bowled what seemed like the zillionth short ball of the day He shouted furiously and gesticulated wildly at him flapping his arms sideways as if quipping “Do you know where the stumps are” It was strange of Herath usually unflustered and unperturbed But this has been a strange series for him wherein he had looked not only bland but also troubled treated around like a muck-as-any spinner with disdain and not with the respect his age and achievements command The outpouring was a reflection of his torn mind the helplessness to produce his best and the haplessness in being unable to inspire his fellow spinners His stats make for an appalling read In three innings this series he has whittled out only five wickets each costing him a shade less than 70 runs and 110 deliveries There is something anomalous about it In the three previous series here he has averaged 2263 1800 and 1275 stamped his imprint in each of their wins and looking half his age and plotted heists out of thin nothingness But against India he has looked every bit his age a man knocking on the doors of his 40s in a perpetual struggle to rekindle his wonted tricks It was not the weariness of age but the concrete plans the Indian batsmen had chalked out to neutralise him that has made him look out of depth For they knew that if they could subdue him half the battle will be won The consensus the Indian batsmen had reached was not rocket science But to use their feet more often against him and more importantly do so early in the innings before he settled into his rhythm before his mind started conjuring entrapments A classic instance was Shikhar Dhawan shimmying down the track in only the second over of this Test and clouting him over the long-on fence This was after he was squarely beaten by a couple of deliveries Now Herath was forced to shorten the length And Dhawan could just lean back and cut him or clip him through the leg-side Thus each time Herath began a new spell or slipped in a few quiet overs Indians would instinctively step out to him Like on Thursday soon after he had nailed Virat Kohli Ajinkya Rahane creamed Herath through mid-wicket so that the pressure was back on him “When I went in to bat with Pujara we decided to change our momentum because Virat got out and we wanted to put pressure back on them and that’s what we did” he said He was soon replaced with Nuwan Pradeep It was a template his teammates adhered to “The idea was to attack him more often on the front foot so that you could score more runs on the back foot Especially on this kind of wicket it is very slow and dry so we knew that if we use our footwork we will get more runs on the back foot” Rahane explained candidly The strategy was devised after Herath slit through them in Galle in 2015 It has been a highly successful ploy too as since that match where he took 7 wickets for 48 runs he has added only 13 scalps at 5361 against India That said it’s not like just coming down the track and trying to thread the boundaries For Herath is masterful at altering his flight length and pace But what Indian batsmen have strategically done is that they’ve almost always covered the line of the delivery when stepping out They don’t look to fetch him over cover but rather play him down the ground or whip him through the leg-side with the knowledge that he doesn’t rely too much on side spin Pujara did this habitually in Galle Almost every delivery he shed the crease and came forward Not necessarily did he attempt a big shot each time but he defended so resolutely that it upset Herath Even if the latter pulled up the length or bowled wider Pujara’s reach and whippy wrists would ensure that he was always to the pitch of the ball Thus Herath began to err on the shorter side because he knew his trusted method – that’s to draw batsman forward and ping them with the slider – was not working He had to conceptualise an alternative He did so by bowling a little short and slipping the slower flighted ball But the Indian batsmen especially Pujara were so quick with their footwork and their mind it hardly harassed them As a result Herath was not only unable to prise out wickets but also strangle them Another stroke that disrupted him was the sweep which both Dhawan and Rahane unfurled regularly If the strip is not dual-bounced there is no better stroke than a hefty sweep to unnerve a spinner as it gives the batsman a wider arc the bowler gradually loses his flight and length and the captain begins to change his field desperately Even Pujara a reluctant sweeper played it against Herath on Thursday to force Dinesh Chandimal to remove the short-leg fielder Rahane abstained from the sweep on the second day as the bounce had become uneven By subduing Herath India have killed the contest and rendered it wholesomely one-sided Unless he can conjure up some novel tricks the series will trickle down to one of the most lopsided ones in the history of these two teams Herath is no stranger to comebacks But at 40 against an emboldened Indian batting line-up it would be a mighty difficult task If he can it makes for an engrossing narrative For all the latest

after 20 years of research and that their findings could lead to better treatments for HIV British and US researchers said they had grown a crystal that enabled them to see the structure of an enzyme called integrasewhich is found in retroviruses like HIV and is a target for some of the newest HIV medicines “Despite initially painstakingly slow progress and very many failed attemptswe did not give up and our effort was finally rewarded” said Peter Cherepanov of Imperial College Londonwho conducted the research with scientists from Harvard University The Imperial and Harvard scientists said that having the integrase structure means researchers can begin fully to understand how integrase inhibitor drugs workhow they might be improvedand how to stop HIV developing resistance to them When the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infects someoneit uses the integrase enzyme to paste a copy of its genetic information into their DNACherepanov explained in the study published in the Nature journal on Sunday Some new drugs for HIV — like Isentress from Merck & Co and elvitegraviran experimental drug from Gilead Sciences — work by blocking integrasebut scientists are not clear exactly how they work or how to improve them The only way to find out was to obtain high-quality crystals — a project that had defeated scientists for many years “When we started outwe knew that the project was very difficultand that many tricks had already been tried and given up by others long ago” said Cherepanov “Thereforewe went back to square one and started by looking for a better model of HIV integrase which could be more amenable for crystallization” The researchers grew a crystal using a version of integrase borrowed from another retrovirus very similar to its HIV counterpart It took more than 40000 trials for them to come up with one a crystal of sufficiently high quality to allow them to see the three-dimensional structurethey said They tested the Merck and Gilead drugs on the
