Indian Space Research Organization(ISRO) will be in the final days of launching a new communication satellite.The launch of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C17) carrying GSAT-12 are progressing well at Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota.The launch of PSLV-C17/GSAT-12 mission is targeted for July 15, 2011 between 16.48 hours and 17.08 hours IST.GSAT-12 Communication satellite with a mass of 1410 kg at lift-off, has 12 Extended C-band transponders. PSLV-C17 will inject GSAT-12 into an elliptical Transfer Orbit (Sub-GTO) of 284 km perigee and 21,000 km apogee
what does Darwin's assertion in his Decent of Man, that human differ in degree but not in kind from other animals suggests?. For some political philosophers have argued that, the dignity of humans stands from the fact that human differ from other animals in kind. If Darwin is right, does this not suggests that other animals should equally have rights?, or does it imply that the most intelligent among humans should have higher dignity than the less intelligent ones?.

Dear Dr. Farrukh,
I am pleased to inform you that the call for nominations for the Ernesto Illy Trieste Science Prize 2011 is now open.
TWAS and illycaffè s.p.a. have instituted this high-level prize to honour distinguished scientists from developing countries. The Trieste Town Council and the Trieste International Foundation for Scientific Progress and Freedom are collaborating in this effort.
The first four-year cycle of the TSP (2005-2008) focused on basic science.
The second four-year cycle (2009-2012) of the prize, called Ernesto Illy Trieste Science Prize to honour the late former President of illycaffè, focuses on sustainability issues in various fields of sciences.
In 2011 the prize, which carries a US$100,000 monetary award generously contributed by illycaffè, will be given for outstanding achievements in Materials Science.
If the state of Singularity means. that no laws of physics or time are applicable . That means time travel and bending of laws of physics is possible..
because at the point of singularity all matter can be accelerated to infinity. so time tunnels can be created to travel in time.... and also acceleration to speed of infinity is possible .(because laws of physics aren't applicable)
So i believe maybe at this point there should be some extreme power.or we can say maybe the holy powers exist here.
or this can be the "Fourth Dimension"
Please comment what do you think.
Eri silk is mostly confined N.E.region of India and spreading to other non-traditional states of India. It gives food through it pupa which contain more than 50% of protein and other essential food elements. Its main fabric product is "Eri Chadar" (eri shawl). Of late various diversified fabrics are made though it is in very limited scale e.g.,
Eri saree,Eri ladies bag,Eri footwear,Eri cap,Eri tie,Eri file folder,Eri quilt,Eri shirt,Eri jacket,Eri denim jean,Eri cotton blended fabric,Eri muga blended fabric,Eri naturally dyed fabric,Eri mulberry blended fabric,and many more......
Eri silkworm is exclusive prerogative of North Eastern India and of late introduced to other parts of India. More than 2.0 lakh farm families are directly depend on this industry for their livelihood. However, sustainability of livelihood of this section people needs more attention for which product diversification is the promising venture. Besides silk and silk product diversification, there is immense scope for food diversification. The different recipe of eri silk pupa are having huge demand in the tribal dominated states of N.E. Region such as Nagaland, Meghalaya, Mizoram and some parts of Assam and Manipur. Very recently, one promising entrepreneur of Nagaland, Mr. Dili Solomon is coming forward to set up a Eri pupa pickle industry along with king chilli pickle industry.
I am involved with a survey on expert participation in Wikipedia, targeted at identifying the major reasons why experts do or don't contribute. Most of the issues targeted therein are also relevant to scientific online networks in general, so I would like to encourage you to fill it in: http://survey.nitens.org/?sid=21693 .

Stress is a condition characterized by mental and physical strain. The mental strain is a state of the mind where the individual becomes lethargic towards work, and is not able to collect, organize and process facts together. The mind is apparently fatigue and is less productive. This bears on the body as the concomitant physical strain where the body is weak and not able to perform tasks.
Stress weakens the resolve to reach decision, make them and also act on them; in most situations, the thinking is muddled up. In other situations, the individual is confused. In severe cases, stress of the mind presents with a total shut off of function. This shows in the workplace as inability to continue work.
Nanotechnology refers to research and technology development at the atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scale, leading to the controlled manipulation and study of structures and devices with length scales in the 1 to 100 nanometers range. Objects at this scale, such as “nanoparticles,” have novel properties and functions that differ markedly from those seen in the bulk scale.
Nanotechnology has achieved the status as one of the...... critical research endeavors of the early 21st century, as scientists studies the unique properties of atomic and molecular assemblages built at the nanometer scale.
Our rule as a network is to co-operate together to achieve our scientific gools in all aspects and fields of nanotechnology and introduce its benefits to the Arabic socity.
Seven young researchers under 30 – two men and five women -- have been chosen as winners of a competition seeking to identify the next generation of leaders in health systems research.
Organized under the auspices of the First Global Symposium on Health Systems Research, in partnership with the Global Forum for Health Systems Research and The Lancet, the competition attracted 129 entries from authors of 44 nationalities.
Winners are Bonventure Ameyo Masakhwe from Kenya, Margarita Bernales from Chile, Leanne Idzerda from Canada, Laurence Lannes from France, Long Qian from China, Amrit Virk from India and Edwin Wouters from Belgium.
The short (1500-word) essays reflected each author’s unique perspective on a particular aspect of health systems research, essentially one of the four sub-themes of the symposium: political economy of universal coverage, health system financing, scale-up of health services or knowledge translation.
