No law prevents Sri Lankans from joining terror outfits abroad PM Wickremesinghe

No Comments on No law prevents Sri Lankans from joining terror outfits abroad PM Wickremesinghe

first_imgCrime scene officials inspect the site of a bomb blast inside a church in Negombo, Sri Lanka.Reuters file [Representational Image]Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s revelation that the country had information about the presence of Islamic State terrorists had sparked more controversies around the globe. On his interview to Sky News, Wickremesinghe said that officials were aware that people had gone to Syria, joined ISIS and returned to the island nation. But the perpetrators could not be arrested as there is no law in the country that forbids them from joining foreign terrorist organisations.According to the Sri Lankan PM, going abroad and taking part in an uprising or protest is not an offence and they can only arrest those who are operating terror outfits inside the country. Hence, the terrorists wander free in the country that has only freed itself from the grip of terror just a decade back.However, this comment from the PM has faced severe criticism as to how a country that promotes tourism and other leisure activities can ignore acts of terrorism with a comment that there are no laws against such activities.Sri Lanka has accused National Towheeth Jama’ath (NTJ) for the ghastly Easter Sunday attacks targeted at churches and five-star hotels even though the attacks were claimed by ISIS. According to the Sri Lankan military intelligence director, Mohammed Zahran Hashim, the leader of the NTJ was killed in the suicide bombing during the breakfast buffet at Shangri-la Hotel in Colombo.President Maithripala Sirisena said that there is information that around 130-140 ISIS-linked suspects are present in Sri Lanka and around 70 of these suspects have been arrested. He alleged that terrorism and drug mafia are connected and that his campaign against drugs may have played a role in the dreaded bombings.last_img read more

Market may pause for clarity on Modi 20 policy direction before resuming

No Comments on Market may pause for clarity on Modi 20 policy direction before resuming

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah wave at party workers. The party’s absolute majority is significant in that it can push economic reforms without bowing to pressure from coalition partners without catering to demands for populist sops.IANSThe market may pause until the policy direction of Narendra Modi 2.0 becomes clear after the breathtaking rally during the run-up to the Lok Sabha 2019 election results saw the benchmark indices set new all-time highs. As expected the 30-share Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) benchmark Sensex scaled the psychological 40,000-point level to touch an all-time high of 40,124 points. The National Stock Exchange’s (NSE) 50-scrip headline index Nifty also set an all-time high of 12,041 points. Sensex closed the week at 39,434 points and Nifty at 11,844.The marked decline in the volatility index India VIX on Friday by 15 percent to 16.46 after opening at 19.40 showed that traders believed the market was close to finding the direction. The rise in Nifty futures (June) premium to about 55 percent also showed the returning confidence of the investors. The Nifty Jun FUT closed the week at 11,902. The Indian currency also gained on Friday, closing 0.6 percent higher against the dollar. The market will closely watch the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) policy guidance in June after the scheduled swearing-in ceremony and the Union Budget, likely in July, apart from global factors like oil, the direction of the US-China trade war and developments in the Middle East where tensions are brewing between Iran and US-backed Saudi Arabia, experts say.The market continued to ride the euphoria that the exit polls generated after the last round of the seven-phase polling on May 19 predicting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that heads the ruling coalition of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) would cross the 272-mark needed for absolute majority in the 542-member Lok Sabha, or the lower house of Parliament. The results on the counting day on May 23 were closer to the most optimistic predictions with the BJP ending up at 303 seats and the NDA getting 353 seats. The significance of the BJP’s performance under party president Amit Shah, who is also expected to join the government, is that the absolute majority will help it to take hard decisions that could spur the economy, unfettered by pressure from coalition partners. Nifty 50 weekly chart shows the market momentum building up. The market is expected to trade sideways as the Narendra Modi 2.0 government is sworn in and the policy direction of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government becomes clear. The market cheered the thumping win of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Lok Sabha elections with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) Sensex and the National Stock Exchange (NSE) Nifty scaling the all-time high to touch 40,124 points and 12,041 points respectively. Zerodha KiteThe major opposition grouping of United Progressive Alliance (UPA) headed by Rahul Gandhi-led Congress party managed only 90 seats with the Congress losing out on the position of Leader of Opposition as it fell two seats short of the 54 required to stake a claim. The market would expect the government to act expeditiously to reform the economy because the BJP’s absolute majority and the absence of credible opposition would curb the government’s need to exhibit a populist zeal, at least in the initial years.The week could see the market trade sideways awaiting the eventual return of foreign institutional investors (FII) into the market. After four months of net inflow of capital, the market saw massive net outflow in May. Once the government is in place and the policy direction and pace firmly set, the FIIs could return, making June another month of net inflow of FII funds, traders believe.”This landslide victory has raised hopes that the government would take decisive actions to boost business sentiment and that in turn will support the market growth,” a report in MoneyControl quoted Jayant Manglik of Religare Broking as saying. “We feel this feelgood factor could extend next week too, provided feeble global cues do not spoil the party.”last_img read more

No Comments on Ahead Of 2019 Session Speaker Joe Straus Orders Texas House To Research

first_imgBob Daemmrich for the Texas TribuneHouse Speaker Joe Straus keeps watch on the chamber during debate on Senate Bill 6 on municipal annexation on Aug. 11, 2017.Texas House Speaker Joe Straus ordered House committees Thursday to research a list of issues related to Hurricane Harvey so lawmakers could be prepared to tackle them during the next legislative session.The Legislature meets every two years for 140 days and isn’t scheduled to meet again until 2019. In the periods in between sessions, the House speaker and lieutenant governor typically direct committees of the House and Senate, respectively, to research a list of policy issues.“We know that this is not going to be a normal legislative interim,” Straus said in a statement. “Hurricane Harvey has devastated our state and upended the lives of millions of Texans. While the state is taking a number of immediate actions to help Texans begin to recover, and will continue to do so, the Legislature will have a substantial role to play in both the recovery process and in preparation for future storms.”Straus prioritized public education in his directions to representatives. He asked the Public Education Committee to:Determine the financial costs of damage to schools from Harvey and recommend changes such as classroom count adjustmentsStudy the educational opportunities and challenges for students who were displaced by the storm, and how to improve the process by which school districts enroll such studentsFind solutions to prevent either students or districts from being punished by the state’s accountability system due to HarveyStraus also charged the House Appropriations Committee — the chamber’s budget writers — to examine the allocation of federal funds to Harvey recovery efforts and identify ways in which funding could be implemented to reduce to damage of future natural disasters. And the Natural Resources Committee will also be exploring the prospect of future storms. Straus instructed the committee to look at how to reduce the impact of future large storms including the role of development and infrastructure in flood prevention. Sharelast_img read more

New evidence for existence of Planet Nine

No Comments on New evidence for existence of Planet Nine

first_img In search of the ninth planet © 2018 It was just two years ago that astronomers at Caltech proposed the possible existence of a large planet circling the sun—which would make it the ninth known planet in our solar system. The researchers made their prediction based on observations of icy objects that exist at the edge of the solar system—their orbits were clearly being warped by a gravitational mass. They suggested a very distant planet roughly four times the size of Earth, but with 10 times its mass, could account for the odd behavior. If such a planet does exist, it would be quite distant, taking from 10,000 to 20,000 years to make one trip around the sun. Since announcing their initial findings, the team at Caltech has published papers offering more evidence of the planet—the possibility that it could have played a role in tilting the other planets in our solar system, for example. They have also suggested it as an explanation for why objects in the Kuiper Belt orbit in an opposite direction to everything else.In this new effort, the researchers suggest the behavior of a certain Trans-Neptunian object could very well be due to gravity from Planet Nine. The object, called 2015 BP519 (Caju for short), was first noted approximately three years ago, but it was only recently that the shape of its orbit was found to be very unusual—it lies nearly perpendicular to the plane established by the known planets. What makes the find so compelling is that the team of researchers who first proposed the existence of Planet Nine created a simulation that predicted the orbital angle of just such an object. And it just happened to match with what has been found. The researchers report that after Caju was first discovered, attempts were made to calculate its orbit, but they all failed. Then they added a large planet to the simulations, which resolved the discrepancies. All that is needed now, they suggest, is for someone to actually find the planet. A large international team of researchers has found what they are describing as more evidence of the existence of Planet Nine. In their paper posted on the arXiv preprint server, the group describes the behavior of a newly discovered distant object as suggestive of an influence of a large planet. Explore further More information: Discovery and Dynamical Analysis of an Extreme Trans-Neptunian Object with a High Orbital Inclination, arXiv:1805.05355 [astro-ph.EP] report the discovery and dynamical analysis of 2015 BP519, an extreme Trans-Neptunian Object detected detected by the Dark Energy Survey at a heliocentric distance of 55 AU and absolute magnitude Hr= 4.3. The current orbit, determined from a 1110-day observational arc, has semi-major axis a≈ 450 AU, eccentricity e≈ 0.92 and inclination i≈ 54 degrees. With these orbital elements, 2015 BP519 is the most extreme TNO discovered to date, as quantified by the reduced Kozai action, which is is a conserved quantity at fixed semi-major axis a for axisymmetric perturbations. We discuss the orbital stability and evolution of this object in the context of the known Solar System, and find that 2015 BP519 displays rich dynamical behavior, including rapid diffusion in semi-major axis and more constrained variations in eccentricity and inclination. We also consider the long term orbital stability and evolutionary behavior within the context of the Planet Nine Hypothesis, and find that BP519 adds to the circumstantial evidence for the existence of this proposed new member of the Solar System, as it would represent the first member of the population of high-i, ϖ-shepherded TNOs.center_img Journal information: arXiv This document is subject to copyright.

first_imgKolkata: A Trinamool Congress delegation on Thursday met the State Election Commissioner, registering a complaint against state BJP president Dilip Ghosh for instigating violence.The delegation team briefed State Election Commissioner A K Singh on how the BJP leaders were trying to spread communal violence ahead of the Panchayat polls. It also brought to the notice of the commission that no political leader can make such derogatory comments as those being made by BJP’s state chief. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsWhile speaking to the media, Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee pointed fingers at Dilip Ghosh without taking his name and said that he has been constantly trying to trigger violence through his speeches.”No political party leader can make the statements he has been making. He is threatening to take people to the crematorium. His derogatory statements will hardly have any impact on the people in Bengal,” Chatterjee said.Taking a dig at the Opposition parties, Chatterjee said: “The Opposition parties are saying that they were unable to file their nominations but the figures are contrary to their claim. BJP filed more nominations than Trinamool Congress did for the Zilla Parishad seats. The CPI-M and Congress have also filed their nominations. In some places, CPI-M activists were seen marching with arms to scare the people.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed”The Opposition parties are talking about safe democracy. Had there been no democracy in the state, the Opposition parties would not have filed more nominations than the ruling Trinamool Congress,” Chatterjee maintained.”Our delegation has told State Election Commissioner A K Singh that the Opposition was trying to mount pressure on the commission by the hue and cry over the process of filing nominations,” Chatterjee told the media after the meeting. The delegation team comprised of Partha Chatterjee, Subrata Mukherjee, Firhad Hakim, Aroop Biswas, Jyotipriya Mallick and Nirmal Ghosh. Shantanu Mukherjee, additional secretary, state election commission said that around 50 serious complaints have been received by the commission so far.

[IMAGE]The lawsuit, filed in a Manhattan federal court, alleged GFI priced “”residential mortgage loans for qualified African-American and Hispanic borrowers higher than for similarly-qualified non-Hispanic white borrowers between 2005 and 2009,”” according to the “”DOJ.””: GFI “”allowed its loan officers to make subjective and unguided pricing adjustments to home mortgage loans that were not based on a borrower’s objective credit characteristics,”” according to the “”consent order””: file Monday in a New York Southern District Court. GFI admitted there were “”significant disparities”” between loans offered to African-American and Hispanic borrowers and non-Hispanic white borrowers, according to the DOJ’s press release Tuesday. “”The company also admitted that it provided financial incentives to its loan officers to charge higher interest rates and fees to borrowers,”” the DOJ stated. “”This type of practice has no place in the mortgage market,”” said John, Trasvi├âãÆ├é┬▒a, assistant secretary with “”HUD.””: [COLUMN_BREAK]””HUD and the Justice Department have made a vigorous commitment to ending unlawful lending discrimination,”” Trasvi├âãÆ├é┬▒a added. The settlement will compensate about 600 borrowers who were treated unfairly and requires GFI to establish new pricing guidelines that eliminate the personal discretion allowed to individual loan officers. After launching an investigation in June 2007, HUD reported GFI to DOJ in January 2010. When DOJ filed suit in April 2012, GFI initially “”filed””: a motion to dismiss the case. “”This lawsuit advances very aggressive and untested enforcement theories,”” said Andrew L. Sandler, GFI’s lead defense attorney. Sandler stated that GFI “”look[ed] forward to the opportunity to challenge DOJ’s flawed legal theories and factual allegations.””However, after the court declared it was “”skeptical”” federal laws allows loans to be priced with such wide discrepancies as seen at GFI, the lending company changed its tune and settled the suit. The case is one of the latest actions from the “”Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force,””: initiated by President Obama in 2009. “”The Justice Department will not hesitate to litigate against lenders to enforce federal fair lending laws where the evidence warrants,”” stated Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. “”With the settlement we announce today, the hundreds of victims of lending discrimination committed by GFI will be made whole, and the company has admitted the conduct that led to this lawsuit, and agreed to reform its residential lending practices,”” said Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.GFI did not immediately return a request for comment on the settlement.

she has in the past during her recent tour this week to Iowa where she made her first stops on the 2016 campaign trail Last year Clinton said in an interview with NPR that she supports gay-marriage

orchestrating a $200 million scheme to defraud investors and others out of hundreds of millions of dollars Parmjit "Paul" Parmar 48 Ravi Chivukula 44 and Sotirios "Sam" Zaharis 51 all from New Jersey are charged with conspiracy to commit securities fraud FBI special agents arrested Parmar on Wednesday near his home Chivukula and Zaharis remain at large Acting Assistant Attorney General John Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division said Parmar Zaharis and Chivukula were formerly CEO CFO and an executive director of a publicly traded health care services company According to the complaint unsealed from May 2015 through September 2017 the defendants orchestrated an elaborate scheme to defraud a private investment firm and others out of hundreds of millions of dollars in connection with the funding of a transaction to take private a company traded publicly on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market Representational image Reuters To fund the transaction the private investment firm put up approximately $82 million in equity and a consortium of financial institutions provided another approximately $130 million in debt The scheme allegedly utilised fraudulent methods to grossly inflate the value of the company and trick others into believing that it was worth substantially more than its actual value The complaint alleges that to present a positive picture of the company’s financial wealth the defendants allegedly sought to raise tens of millions of dollars in the public markets In reality a number of those entities either did not exist or had only a fraction of the operating income attributed to them The conspirators allegedly funnelled the proceeds of these secondary offerings through bank accounts they controlled and used the money for a variety of purposes that had nothing to do with acquiring the purported targets The money was instead used to make it appear as if the operating subsidiary had substantial customer revenue when in fact the funds were simply transfers of the money that had been raised in the secondary offering The defendants allegedly went to great lengths to make it appear that these funds were revenue concocting phony customers and altering bank statements to make it appear as if the funds were coming from customers Separately the US filed a civil complaint seeking forfeiture of four properties that Parmar owns or controls including a house in New Jersey and three apartments in New York City The US Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil complaint today against Parmar Zaharis and Chivukula At 10:02 on Friday evening July 25 I received the following personal message from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee: "THE IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA IS NOW A REAL POSSIBILITY” The capital letters were in red This was a blast email of course sent to everyone on the Democratic Partys fundraising list and also to political journalists It referred to some very calculated remarks that White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer had made earlier that day about impeachment: "I think Speaker Boehner by going down the path of this lawsuit [against the President] has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point in the future" This was the beginning of a half-crazed weekend begathon by the Democrats The next afternoon: "Sorry to email you early on a Saturdaybut were on full RED ALERT at Democratic Head-quarters…According to our records you havent chipped in since Republicans authorized a vote to sue President Obama" (Or ever chipped in for that matter) And Sunday: "MAJOR UPDATE: House Republicans held a closed-door meeting to discuss impeaching President Obama" On Monday I received a cranky email from Obama himself: "Joe Biden has emailed you Michelle has emailed you And now Ive emailed you We wouldnt all be asking if it wasnt so important Right now Republicans in Congress are trying to sue me for simply doing my job" Later that day the DCCC re-sent me that email: "Did you see this President Obama emailed you this morning" Holy moley There is cleverness to the onslaught of course a classic use of a political tactic known as jiu-jitsu: take your opponents feral vehemence and roll with it No doubt Pfeiffer is right There is a chance that the Republicans will try to impeach the President especially later in the summer after he announces a major Executive Order that will affect a large numbermillions perhapsof the illegal immigrants now in the country There is speculation that it will be a further expansion of the legal status he conferred on children brought into the US illegally by their parents; perhaps the parents will now be included There is likely to be an explosion if he does thisthe Central American refugee crisis on the US-Mexico border has made immigration the hottest of domestic issues It is also the most toxic issue for Republicans who hope to win the presidency somedayand the Senate this November House Speaker Boehner has said there will be no impeachment Thats why he instituted a rather silly lawsuit against the President overyet againObamacare which aides say could be expanded if Obama goes for broke on the border Boehner is trying to placate the GOP base But he also promised that there would be no government shutdown in 2013 and got trampled by his troops The Speaker knows theres nothing the Democrats would rather have than impeachment and immigration as the dominant issues in the fall campaign He also knows theres nothing Rush Limbaugh would rather have; indeed it would be a ratings bonanzathe base would go berserk And on the other end of the Republican evolutionary spectrum a leading conservative thinker Yuval Levin has said the Executive Order that Obama is contemplating would be "the most extreme act of executive overreach ever attempted by an American President in peacetime" There might be no stopping the primal fury unleashed by what the Republicans are calling "executive amnesty" So this is smart strategy on the part of the Obama political operation right Well grudgingly yes But its also cynical as hell The White House is playing with fire raising the heat in a country that is already brain-fried by partisan frenzy There is something unseemly and unprecedented about an administration saying "Bring it on" when it comes to impeachment Clintons White House certainly never did publicly even though it was clear from polling that the spectacle would be a disaster for Republicans Of course President Clinton had done something immoral if not impeachable and Obama has not Another impeachment ordeal would be terrible for the country Also terrible for the country if all too common is the DCCCs impeachment beggingand the Presidents constant fat-cat fundraising in a summer of trouble What if he simply said "Im done with fundraising This is an important election but theres just too much going on in the world right now" His political folks would hate it but I suspect it might be more effective and presidential than sending out tin-cup emails Contact us at editors@timecomNew Delhi: The Delhi Metro told the high court in New Delhithat a nominal fee is charged for drinking water and toilets at its stations to prevent the misuse of these facilities The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) however also said that someone who is unable to pay the charges will be provided drinking water or use of toilets free of cost if they approach the staff at the stations The submissions by the DMRC were made in an affidavit filed before a bench of JusticeS Ravindra Bhat and Justice AK Chawla which is hearing a lawyer’s appeal against a single judge’s order that a commuter on the metro does not have a right to free drinking water Representational image PTI The single judge had said that a person has a right to drinking water but not for free The order had come on a plea by advocate Kush Kalra who had sought directions to the DMRC to provide free drinking water and toilets at its stations In his plea filed through advocate Kush Sharma Kalra also alleged that there is a lack of dustbins inside several metro stations Refuting the claims of the petitioner the metro in its affidavit has said it has set up water ATMs at its stations which provide water at a charge of Rs 2 per glass Apart from that there are kiosks and shops which sell drinking water it said and added that commuters are free to carry their own drinking water It also said that it has put in place transparent dustbins in all the stations The DMRC in its affidavit has further stated that its stations cannot be equated with airports as commuters stay at a station for around five minutes while they have to wait for hours at airports The affidavit was filed in response to the court’s query on the last date of hearing regarding the DMRC’s policy to not provide free drinking water to the passengers The bench on the last date had pulled up the Delhi Metro for not providing free drinking water or toilet facilities to commuters inside the stations asking whether it has lost "a sense of human problems" "You go anywhere in the world there are toilets in the metro stations In London the volume of traffic is not as much as we have Show us the data and reasons for not providing these facilities You have this policy in place for the last 14 years" the bench had said

reveal new clues toward elusive HIV vaccine and cure By Jon CohenMar 9 2018 11:50 AM BOSTON—Despite enormous efforts over more than 30 years HIV/AIDS researchers have yet to develop either a vaccine or cure for the disease But they have made progress in monkey experiments and two studies reported here this week at the largest annual US HIV/AIDS conference created serious buzz Several AIDS vaccines have had some success in monkey models which typically use SIV a simian cousin of HIV that causes AIDS in rhesus macaques But one vaccine has long stood out from the pack Designed by Louis Picker and colleagues at Oregon Health & Science University’s Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute in Beaverton the vaccine stitches SIV genes into a harmless Trojan horse cytomegalovirus Picker’s team has given the vaccine to more than 200 monkeys and then “challenged” them with injections of a particularly nasty strain of SIV All told 55% of the animals became temporarily infected and then completely controlled the virus for years or even cleared it Two stubborn questions remain however: Picker and co-workers have yet to nail down the immune responses that explain the vaccine’s success and they also can’t explain why it frequently fails At the meeting this week—the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections—immunologist Michael Gale Jr of the University of Washington in Seattle described how his group explored these questions by taking a big picture view of active genes in the protected and unprotected animals Specifically the researchers identified and compared clusters of genes in the two groups of animals that were turned on high or tamped down low These clusters control the production of various interleukins (biochemicals that communicate messages between immune cells) cell growth and inflammation They drilled down to 234 genes that had different expression levels in the two groups at day 3 and found that by looking at these alone they could predict with 91% accuracy whether the vaccine injection would protect an animal “This is the most interesting talk at the whole meeting” says Mario Clerici an immunologist at the University of Milan in Italy who long has focused on why some humans handle the virus better than others Picker says these findings offer him new ways to tweak his vaccine “Obviously the vaccine is tickling something and maybe the critical issue is tickling a certain pathway a little bit stronger” he says As an example he points to the genes that collectively control interleukin-10 production which were turned on much higher in protected animals “If that signal turns out to be critical I can manipulate it” he says Picker has co-founded a company Vir Biotechnology in San Francisco California that plans to start testing the vaccine in humans next year On the cure front immunologist Dan Barouch who directs the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center–Harvard Medical School in Boston threw the kitchen sink at the virus His team first infected 44 monkeys with a hybrid of SIV and HIV called SHIV One week later the scientists began treating all the animals with antiretrovirals (ARVs) and continued for 2 years In all 44 monkeys the virus dropped to undetectable levels on standard blood tests The researchers then divided the animals into four groups that received either nothing (the controls) a potent HIV antibody a drug that binds to toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) that studs innate immune system cells or the antibody plus the TLR7 drug Sixteen weeks later they stopped all ARVs In humans who control HIV with ARVs to the point that researchers cannot find the virus in their blood or tissues the virus always comes screaming back usually within a few weeks once they stop taking drugs That’s precisely what happened in all 11 control animals In the monkeys given the TLR7 drug or the antibody 20 of 22 no longer could suppress the SHIV But in the group that received the antibody plus the TLR drug five of 11 animals did not see the SHIV return after 6 months (the experiment is ongoing) and the others have low levels of the virus “We’re very encouraged by this preliminary proof of concept study” Barouch says A key obstacle to curing an HIV infection is that even when people have undetectable levels of virus a reservoir remains of cells that hold chromosomes laced with “latent” viral DNA which doesn’t produce progeny and thus lies under the radar of the immune system—but can suddenly kick into gear and cause mayhem Earlier monkey studies showed that the TLR7 drug can “shock” lately infected cells to produce the virus setting them up for elimination Many groups have attempted “shock-and-kill” experiments in monkeys and humans “This is the first evidence that shock-and-kill works” Picker says Picker and others stress several important caveats It’s possible that the virus will return in these five monkeys—humans presumed to be cured have had HIV show up more than 2 years after stopping ARVs And in this experiment ARV treatment was started a week after infection; it rarely happens that soon in people SHIV is also easier for monkeys to naturally control than the SIV used in Picker’s studies With all that in mind Jeffrey Lifson who does SIV studies at the US National Cancer Institute in Frederick Maryland says the findings are “interesting provocative and potentially important” Steven Deeks a clinician who does cure trials at the University of California San Francisco says he soon plans to test a similar combination of a TLR drug and a potent antibody in patients who have been fully suppressed for several years “There’s no clear mechanism here but as a clinician I don’t really care” he says “It’s all a big black box: You have something that goes in and something that goes out What comes out here is no virus”A group of citizen scientists has commandeered a NASA spacecraft that was launched in 1978 and had gone unused since 1997 Today the group made first contact with the International Sun-Earth Explorer-3 (ISEE-3) when the spacecraft acknowledged receiving a signal from the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico says Keith Cowing co-director of the ISEE-3 Reboot Project a group of about 20 volunteer space buffs “We knew we could do this—it’s a vindication” he says “It’s sort of like reaching back in time to grab something that otherwise would have been lost” Cowing says that the group is now getting telemetry data from the spacecraft Over the coming days they will try to understand the health of the spacecraft and its 13 scientific instruments The spacecraft was launched to study space weather and is due to make a close pass around the moon Next month they plan to instigate a burn with the remaining fuel and move the spacecraft into a new orbit Also in June they plan to start communicating with ISEE-3 from a second radio telescope a 21-meter dish at Morehead State University in Kentucky This dish is more movable than the massive Arecibo telescope and can better track the spacecraft as it gets closer to Earth Cowing says The ISEE-3 Reboot Project raised more than $150000 in crowd-funding to support its volunteer efforts

rubber as Denis Shapovalov steered Canada back to the elite Davis Cup World Group in Edmonton on Sunday India needed Ramkumar to create some magic on the final day of the tie but his failure to

Brayden Schnur 6-4 4-6 6-4 as India lost the World Group Play-off tie 2-3 to the hosts In a see-saw battle Yuki overcame lapse of concentration and an early break in the deciding set to finally

still be a criminal offence Now in 2015 same-sex couples have a constitutionally protected right to marry across the nation Related News James Obergefell and John Arthur lived together for 20 years In 2011 Arthur developed ALS a disease with no known cure The two decided to marry before Arthur died Because their home state Ohio did not permit same-sex marriage they travelled to Maryland which did and were actually married inside a medical transport plane on the tarmac since Arthur was by then unable to move Three months later Arthur died Obergefell brought a suit to be listed as a surviving spouse on Arthur’s death certificate April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse residents of Michigan celebrated a commitment ceremony in 2007 Both trained nurses they adopted three children with extensive medical needs Michigan law however did not recognise their union so their children faced numerous legal risks and disabilities should one of them need hospital care and even more should one of their parents die Army Reserve Sergeant Ijpe DeKoe married his partner Thomas Kostura in New York before he was deployed to Afghanistan Because they now work in Tennessee which did not recognise same-sex marriage their lawful marriage was not recognised where they live creating uncertainty should one of them fall ill or die These are the plaintiffs who entered history last week when the US Supreme Court ruled that all states must now recognise same-sex marriage But their stories stand for thousands of stories of men and women across the US who are celebrating their recognition as citizens of equal dignity We have all known for a while that this result was likely in the offing but the reality brings tears of astonishment and joy The legal issues are subtle and complicated One fault in all of the opinions majority and dissents alike is that the reader can’t see that complexity All the opinions were written for the media and the history books If you want to understand debates about the relationship between the due process clause and the equal protection clause about the scope of substantive due process and about the vexed question of unenumerated fundamental rights and the judicial role in defending them you will need to turn to other cases and to law journals Justice A Kennedy has uplifting things to say about equal dignity but his analysis (as is often the case in his opinions) does not fully settle these hard legal questions although they are clearly best settled in his direction The strength of his opinion is in its insistence that marriage has always evolved and changed and that this new phase represents not a subversion of the institution but a strengthening by more equal inclusion “The nature of injustice” he rightly observes “is that we may not see it in our own time” His patient effort to document injustices to gays and lesbians — including the bizarre patchwork of rights that make couples and children insecure whenever they cross state lines — tells people what many already know but it gives recognition and stature to the pursuit of justice in which so many have been engaged for so long What happened Until 2003 same-sex “sodomy” could still be a criminal offence Now in 2015 same-sex couples have a constitutionally protected right to marry across the nation What explains this rapid shift which is strongly supported by public opinion Hollywood certainly played a large part as both film and TV gradually introduced the reality of gay and lesbian lives to a wide range of Americans with grace and charm Perhaps more than any other single creation the sitcom Will and Grace showed audiences that gay men were not monsters but complex human beings capable of friendship some longing for love and a settled lifestyle some more focused on fun — rather like straights in fact (The two gay men in Will are sometimes hard to distinguish from the two straight bachelors of Two and a Half Men except that the former are funnier and kinder) But the bigger story was people coming out to their families friends and even classmates People change when they learn that someone whom they love already is gay or lesbian; or through friendship and talk come to see the world through the eyes of such a person The stories told at the opening of the case reminded us that this transformation has at its root been a tale of the stories we tell and permit ourselves to hear Fifty years ago as a teenage actress I had a huge crush on a fellow actor a gifted funny and kind man Then observing him closely I realised he was gay with a long-time partner who visited him on weekends The two had exchanged rings as a token of commitment I was disappointed but soon curiosity and sympathy took over Why in the world I wondered could these men be open about their love in our little world of the repertory theatre but not in larger society What was wrong with America that good people were forced to hide their love I though it absurd unjustifiable I’ve been on the barricades ever since But times do sometimes change for the better When I dedicated my 2010 book on sexual orientation law to that actor he wrote and told me he is now happily married I was lucky to be in the theatre where I learned early to care for people who were being deprived of equal dignity But recently particularly after the legalisation of same-sex sex acts more or less everyone knows people who are gay and lesbian Everyone knows their friends and children might come out at any time And a growing majority of Americans believe that it is strange and repugnant to push these people to the margins of society denying their love equal respect India has a long way to go on the journey to equal dignity The repeal of Section 377 is an urgently necessary first step so that people will come out without fear of the law But since stories are where the action is Bollywood needs to take a more active role; bold in matters of communalism it has been quiescent virtually Victorian in matters of sex Above all we all — Indians and friends of India — need to tell many stories about gay and lesbian lives about the harm done to families and children by the denial of equal

iteration of bilateral priorities in the telephone conversation between Prime Minister Modi and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang marks a good beginning Given that China offers at the same time a big economic opportunity and a strategic challenge dealing with it will necessitate shedding the heavy-footedness and diffidence that has held back Delhi’s China policy so far The UPA’s China policy ended up denying the Indian economy the full benefits of economic cooperation with China by citing security considerations while glossing over genuine security issues by claiming political convergence with Beijing Modi’s emphasis on the economic aspect of foreign policy could see closer attention paid to Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific and China is arguably the most important and trickiest component of that picture No matter how fast the Indian economy recovers and the Chinese slows down if at all Delhi cannot hope to close the gap any time soon Instead it should manoeuvre its disadvantage into advantage and embark on an economic partnership that invites and eases Chinese investment While bilateral trade is expected to touch $100 billion in 2015 India needs to redress its $40 bn trade deficit Li and Modi have reportedly agreed on frequent high-level exchanges Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s forthcoming visit and Modi’s invitation to President Xi Jinping signal that Sino-Indian engagement may become more result-oriented Modi and Xi will also have the opportunity to interact at the BRICS summit in Brazil in July Greater economic cooperation however will not erase the military imbalance India suffers to its north with China which impinges on the long-running border dispute between the two countries Even as it raises the level of its engagement with Beijing the government will have to simultaneously focus on upgrading border infrastructure in the north and modernising the armed forces — two projects that were only spottily addressed by the previous government At the same time China’s Southeast Asian and East Asian neighbours look forward to greater Indian involvement in the region as a credible security partner given China’s aggressiveness in maritime disputes
