ISRO चांद से लाएगा हीलियम, 250 सालों तक ऊर्जा / ISRO find a trillion-dollar nuclear fuel on the Moon
 
03:17
India’s intention of mining the moon for helium-3 was in fact first reported early last year, following comments by Sivathanu Pillai, a professor at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO,) India’s equivalent to NASA. Those reports were initially scotched due to a supposed misquotation of Pillai, but the space agency is now clearly pursuing that goal. “The countries which have the capacity to bring that source from the moon to Earth will dictate the process,” ISRO chair K. Sivan told Bloomberg. This will be India’s first mission to the moon, and the ISRO hopes to establish a space station and, ultimately, a moon base. The Trump administration also wants to send U.S. astronauts back to the moon. Russia plans to send a lander to the moon next year, and the Indian and Japanese space agencies are cooperating on their own lunar efforts, largely because they’re worried about the Chinese getting too far ahead. Private enterprise is also involved in the new space race, with Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin company intending to build a moon colony. India's space program wants to go where no nation has gone before -– to the south side of the moon. And once it gets there, it will study the potential for mining a source of waste-free nuclear energy that could be worth trillions of dollars. The nation's equivalent of NASA will launch a rover in October to explore virgin territory on the lunar surface and analyze crust samples for signs of water and helium-3. That isotope is limited on Earth yet so abundant on the moon that it theoretically could meet global energy demands for 250 years if harnessed. "The countries which have the capacity to bring that source from the moon to Earth will dictate the process," said K Sivan, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation. "I don't want to be just a part of them, I want to lead them." The mission would solidify India's place among the fleet of explorers racing to the moon, Mars and beyond for scientific, commercial or military gains. The governments of the US, China, India, Japan and Russia are competing with startups and billionaires Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson to launch satellites, robotic landers, astronauts and tourists into the cosmos. The rover landing is one step in an envisioned series for Isro that includes putting a space station in orbit and, potentially, an Indian crew on the moon. The government has yet to set a timeframe. "We are ready and waiting," said Sivan, an aeronautics engineer who joined Isro in 1982. "We've equipped ourselves to take on this particular program." China is the only country to put a lander and rover on the moon this century with its Chang'e 3 mission in 2013. The nation plans to return later this year by sending a probe to the unexplored far side. In the US, President Donald Trump signed a directive calling for astronauts to return to the moon, and NASA's proposed $19 billion budget this fiscal year calls for launching a lunar orbiter by the early 2020s. Isro's estimated budget is less than a 10th of that – about $1.7 billion – but accomplishing feats on the cheap has been a hallmark of the agency since the 1960s. The upcoming mission will cost about $125 million – or less than a quarter of Snap Inc co-founder Evan Spiegel's compensation last year, the highest for an executive of a publicly traded company, according to the Bloomberg Pay Index.

CHINA vs FRANCE: Battle for AFRICA? - VisualPolitik EN
 
13:52
Almost half of the African content used to be a French colony. Even today we can still feel the French influence on this part of the planet. French military is present in most of the African conflicts, if not all, and Paris has a strong grip on the Governments of the former colonies. Even the currency of more than 15 African countries is linked to the Euro and controlled by France. Nonetheless, despite this strong political sway, the economy is a totally different animal. After centuries of colonialism, African countries haven’t evolved. And China is the ultimate trade partner of most of the sub-Saharan countries. Yes, France is sending troops to Africa but China is sending businessmen. And they are getting a way better profit with it. In this video, we will talk about the French influence in Africa and this new political battle between China and France to take the biggest advantage of African emerging powers.

Working in the Office of the Future
 
03:55
Holographic bosses? Robot assistants? Virtual water coolers? Anything is possible in the workplace of the future! Office design and technology is rapidly evolving as businesses look for innovative ways to maximize efficiency and get the most out of their employees. But as future offices become increasingly "virtual," will they help or hinder collaboration? We have a question for you. What is YOUR vision of the office of the future? Let us know in the comments! -------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Fw:Thinking: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=fwthinking For the audio podcast, blog and more, visit the Fw:Thinking website: http://www.fwthinking.com Fw:Thinking on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/fwthinking Jonathan Stickland on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/jonstrickland Fw:Thinking on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/FWThinking01 Fw:Thinking on Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/108500616405453822675/ [TRANSCRIPT]: Your 3D holographic boss sent his robot assistant to get coffee. It's just another day in the office. Businesses have been obsessed with increasing efficiency and getting the most out of their employees, and this goes all the way to how they set up their office space. Now in the early 20th Century, your typical office looked like a giant open factory floor with a manager up above looming over the employees. And in the 1980s we saw the birth of the beautiful cubicle farm, which could be kind of a bummer to work in, but hey, it gave us Dilbert and that fax machine scene in Office Space, so they're not all bad right? Meanwhile as technology has evolved, the office has evolved as well. Mobile technology and tablets have given rise to open office environments where you might not even sit at the same desk everyday. At one of these offices you would come into work and a computer would tell you which desks are available, and you pick which one you want based upon what you're working on and who you need to see. You just have to remember to take that photo of you and your dog with you when you're done for the day. And of course with wifi becoming more available, the office now is really wherever you are. See we've had video conferencing for years, but now companies are experimenting with telepresence robots which allow the user to control the point of view and look at who or whatever they want based upon a robotic camera eye. They can even move around and get a feel for the office, maybe they'll go on down to the water cooler for some juicy gossip. So, what might a typical office day look like in, say, 2030? Not so typical. You might start your day with a 3D holographic video conference with your CEO. Then log into your department meeting via your avatar which can mimic your actual movements and facial expressions. Now as you work, software tracks which apps you use for how long, which emails you tend to put off, and the tone of your response in the emails you send. Your body monitoring device encourages you to get up if you've been sitting around for too long doing things like playing the video games developed by your company to encourage and reward innovative thinking. Moving around gets your heart rate up, it might get some alpha waves going to really encourage creativity. And speaking about alpha waves and creativity, companies like 3M and Google are doing that by setting aside time, sometimes between fifteen and twenty percent of an employees work week to work on pet projects. Other companies inspire employees to take naps or long walks or even just work from home all the time. Eventually we'll probably move into an environment where we just have virtual offices and robot assistants will answer all of our emails for us. But will such work be rewarding? Well think about it. Work has evolved over time. Toiling the fields has given way in large part to toiling over a thirty-seven message long email chain, or trying to figure out how to keep people from nodding off during your PowerPoint presentation on "Assessing Possible Synergies to Critical Success Factors Across Multiple Verticals." It's still toiling. One thing that will not change, though, is that we still need people to work together to solve problems collaboratively, whether it's in a video conference or a challenging video game level. And one other thing that might not change are work hierarchies. So a little word of advice, watch what you say about the boss when you're at the water cooler - even if it's a virtual water cooler.

William McDonough: "Design as Optimism" | Talks at Google
 
56:40
As a part of Google’s Environment Day on April 25th, we invited architect, designer, thought leader, and author William McDonough to Google NYC for a talk on "Design as Optimism." Moderated by Mary Davidge. Design is the first signal of human intention. We are all designers because we all have intentions. What if our intention is to do good and make the world better because we are here? William McDonough shares real world examples of materials, products, buildings, communities, and economies that were designed in the search for good. About William McDonough William McDonough points the way toward “more good, rather than less bad” values and practices for businesses in all sectors at all scales—showing how a positive future of continuous improvement is possible now. He is an architect, a global leader in sustainable development, and serves on the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on the Future of Environment and Natural Resource Security. For more than 40 years, McDonough—through McDonough Innovation, William McDonough + Partners, Architects, and MBDC—has defined the principles of the sustainability movement. He is co-author of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things (2002) and The Upcycle: Beyond Sustainability—Designing for Abundance (2013). He also co-founded the not-for-profit Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute; and in 2012, he became the subject of Stanford University Libraries’ first “living archive.” McDonough has received the Presidential Award for Sustainable Development (1996), the first U.S. EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award (2003), and the National Design Award (2004). In January 2017, he was awarded the Fortune Award for Circular Economy Leadership at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting where he was hailed as “the father of the circular economy”. In 2009, he co-founded the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, to scale up the rigorous product certification program. Time magazine recognized him as a “Hero for the Planet,” noting: “His utopianism is grounded in a unified philosophy that—in demonstrable and practical ways—is changing the design of the world.”

Welcome to The Knock-on Effect. This is The Knock-on Effect, the show where we start with a thing you know and end up in a strange place, a weird and wonderful place. I'm Roger Hirst, and with me we have, as always, Justine Underhill, and the fabulous Alex Rosenberg. ALEX ROSENBERG: I'm noticing a bit of a jingle there as you, uh-- ROGER HIRST: Yes. Bought one for my kids, fortunately, not one I bought myself. ALEX ROSENBERG: --oh, yeah, no, I bought this many years ago, and I was wearing it as a regular sweater until-- JUSTINE UNDERHILL: Oh, you thought that actually looked good. ALEX ROSENBERG: --I think actually someone's grandma knit it, because there's no labels or anything. So-- JUSTINE UNDERHILL: Oh, wow. ALEX ROSENBERG: --anyway. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: And then I'm a present. ROGER HIRST: It's good. The full outfit I think is brilliant. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: Yeah. ROGER HIRST: So I mean, as you can see, it's a pretty special episode we're in today. It's a special episode because this is the final episode of the first season. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: Yay. ALEX ROSENBERG: Yay. ROGER HIRST: Yay. Rejoicing around the world. ALEX ROSENBERG: Exactly. ROGER HIRST: So what we cover-- we've covered quite a lot, haven't we? ALEX ROSENBERG: Your job is to figure out where we're going before we get there. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: OK. ALEX ROSENBERG: So what do you think? Oh, hey. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: Look who we have. ALEX ROSENBERG: He's the professor in person. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: We're all going to take a trip. We're in the aisle. ALEX ROSENBERG: Oh! Oops, did I break this? Now everyone's going to know that I'm not faithful to my diet. ROGER HIRST: Quaker Oat Crunch pillows. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: Alex. ROGER HIRST: No, you've got to get them flowing down your chin. ALEX ROSENBERG: What's going to happen? All right, up, up, and away. Here we go. ROGER HIRST: So I think we're going to kick off with Justine. It was episode one. It was-- ALEX ROSENBERG: Wow. ROGER HIRST: --it was back in May, wasn't it? Something like that? JUSTINE UNDERHILL: Yeah, so long ago. ROGER HIRST: So long ago. It was a cock-ineal, cosh-ineal, coash-ineal, koshaneal. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: I have the correct pronunciation. Not that I'm going to pronounce it correctly, but they are cochineals. ALEX ROSENBERG: That's so funny, I thought it was cochineal. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: I thought it was, too. But anyways-- ALEX ROSENBERG: We've learned so much since May. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: --these are the red dye-- ROGER HIRST: Red dye, that's easier. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: --from bugs that you can find in many different food products, actually. So that whole episode-- oh, we have the bugs right here. ALEX ROSENBERG: Yeah, I think so. JUSTINE UNDERHILL: We have a little-- yeah, these are the bugs-- ROGER HIRST: Extract or the bugs themselves? JUSTINE UNDERHILL: --these are the actual bugs that are dried. And I'll pour some on the table. That doesn't really look like bugs, but it creates a really fabulous red dye. So this episode was basically about the US cracking down on trade, and what that meant for red velvet cake. And so basically, the quick summary of that Knock-on Effect was that the US was cracking down on trade, that meant that other countries were strengthening trade partnerships.

In the early decades of the Space Age, the government space agencies of the Soviet Union and United States pioneered space technology in collaboration with affiliated design bureaus in the USSR and private companies in the US, entirely funding both the development of new spaceflight technologies and the operational costs of spaceflight. The European Space Agency was formed in 1975, largely following the same model of space technology development. Later on, large defense contractors began to develop and operate space launch systems, derived from government rockets. Private spaceflight in Earth orbit includes communications satellites, satellite television, satellite radio, astronaut transport and sub-orbital and orbital space tourism. In the 2000s, entrepreneurs began designing—and by the 2010s, deploying—space systems competitive to the national-monopoly governmental systems of the early decades of the space age. These new offerings have brought about significant market competition in space launch services after 2010 that had not been present previously. Successes to date include flying suborbital spaceplanes, launching orbital rockets, flying two orbital expandable test modules (Genesis I and II), and the successful development of first-stage orbital launch vehicles that are able to vertically land after a launch so as to enable reuse. The most powerful rocket in operation as of 2018, the Falcon Heavy, was privately developed. Planned private spaceflights beyond Earth orbit include personal spaceflights around the Moon.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
 
12:23
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

In computer science AI research is defined as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is applied when a machine mimics "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving".The scope of AI is disputed: as machines become increasingly capable, tasks considered as requiring "intelligence" are often removed from the definition, a phenomenon known as the AI effect, leading to the quip in Tesler's Theorem, "AI is whatever hasn't been done yet." For instance, optical character recognition is frequently excluded from "artificial intelligence", having become a routine technology. Modern machine capabilities generally classified as AI include successfully understanding human speech, competing at the highest level in strategic game systems (such as chess and Go), autonomously operating cars, and intelligent routing in content delivery networks and military simulations. Artificial intelligence was founded as an academic discipline in 1956, and in the years since has experienced several waves of optimism, followed by disappointment and the loss of funding (known as an "AI winter"), followed by new approaches, success and renewed funding. For most of its history, AI research has been divided into subfields that often fail to communicate with each other. These sub-fields are based on technical considerations, such as particular goals (e.g. "robotics" or "machine learning"), the use of particular tools ("logic" or artificial neural networks), or deep philosophical differences. Subfields have also been based on social factors (particular institutions or the work of particular researchers).The traditional problems (or goals) of AI research include reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, learning, natural language processing, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects. General intelligence is among the field's long-term goals. Approaches include statistical methods, computational intelligence, and traditional symbolic AI. Many tools are used in AI, including versions of search and mathematical optimization, artificial neural networks, and methods based on statistics, probability and economics. The AI field draws upon computer science, information engineering, mathematics, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and many others. The field was founded on the claim that human intelligence "can be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it". This raises philosophical arguments about the nature of the mind and the ethics of creating artificial beings endowed with human-like intelligence which are issues that have been explored by myth, fiction and philosophy since antiquity. Some people also consider AI to be a danger to humanity if it progresses unabated. Others believe that AI, unlike previous technological revolutions, will create a risk of mass unemployment.In the twenty-first century, AI techniques have experienced a resurgence following concurrent advances in computer power, large amounts of data, and theoretical understanding; and AI techniques have become an essential part of the technology industry, helping to solve many challenging problems in computer science, software engineering and operations research.

It borders the Black Sea to the southeast, Bulgaria to the south, Ukraine to the north, Hungary to the west, Serbia to the southwest, and Moldova to the east. It has a predominantly temperate-continental climate. With a total area of 238,397 square kilometres (92,046 sq mi), Romania is the 12th largest country and also the 7th most populous member state of the European Union, having almost 20 million inhabitants. Its capital and largest city is Bucharest and other major urban areas include Iași, Timișoara, Cluj-Napoca, and Constanța. The River Danube, Europe's second-longest river, rises in Germany's Black Forest and flows in a general southeast direction for 2,857 km (1,775 mi), coursing through ten countries before emptying into Romania's Danube Delta. The Carpathian Mountains, which cross Romania from the north to the southwest, include Moldoveanu Peak, at an altitude of 2,544 m (8,346 ft).Modern Romania was formed in 1859 through a personal union of the Danubian Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia. The new state, officially named Romania since 1866, gained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1877. Following World War I, when Romania fought on the side of the Allied powers, Bukovina, Bessarabia, Transylvania and parts of Banat, Crișana and Maramureș became part of the sovereign Kingdom of Romania. In June–August 1940, as a consequence of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact and Second Vienna Award, Romania was compelled to cede Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina to the Soviet Union, and Northern Transylvania to Hungary. In November 1940, Romania signed the Tripartite Pact and, consequently, in June 1941 entered World War II on the Axis side, fighting against the Soviet Union until August 1944, when it joined the Allies and recovered Northern Transylvania. Following the war, under the occupation of the Red Army's forces, Romania became a socialist republic and member of the Warsaw Pact. After the 1989 Revolution, Romania began a transition towards democracy and a market economy. The sovereign state of Romania is a developing country and ranks 52nd in the Human Development Index. It has the world's 47th largest economy by nominal GDP and an annual economic growth rate of 7% (2017), the highest in the EU at the time. Following rapid economic growth in the early 2000s, Romania has an economy predominantly based on services, and is a producer and net exporter of machines and electric energy, featuring companies like Automobile Dacia and OMV Petrom. It has been a member of the United Nations since 1955, part of NATO since 2004, and part of the European Union since 2007.

Eldridge & Co.:  Kenneth Prewitt on the Census
 
27:49
Former director of the U.S. Census and Columbia University professor, Kenneth Prewitt talks with Ronnie Eldridge about the history of the census and the significance of the numbers reported every 10 years. Of particular concern is the reliance - in the 21st century - on archaic and discredited 18th century science based on the "five races" white, black, red, yellow, brown. In "What Is Your Race," Prof. Prewitt shows why the way we count by race is flawed. (Taped: 09/16/13) Ronnie M. Eldridge, articulate, outspoken, and passionate member of the New York City Council from 1989 to 2001, hosts this series which covers the issues and institutions, the people and politics of New York City.

It is the most populous city in India with an estimated city proper population of 12.4 million as of 2011. Along with the neighbouring regions of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, it is the second most populous metropolitan area in India, with a population of 21.3 million as of 2016. Mumbai lies on the Konkan coast on the west coast of India and has a deep natural harbour. In 2008, Mumbai was named an alpha world city. It is also the wealthiest city in India, and has the highest number of millionaires and billionaires among all cities in India. Mumbai is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Elephanta Caves, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, and the city's distinctive ensemble of Victorian and Art Deco buildings. The seven islands that constitute Mumbai were originally home to communities of Koli people, who originated in Gujarat in prehistoric times. For centuries, the islands were under the control of successive indigenous empires before being ceded to the Portuguese Empire and subsequently to the East India Company when in 1661 Charles II of England married Catherine of Braganza and as part of her dowry Charles received the ports of Tangier and Seven Islands of Bombay. During the mid-18th century, Bombay was reshaped by the Hornby Vellard project, which undertook reclamation of the area between the seven islands from the sea. Along with construction of major roads and railways, the reclamation project, completed in 1845, transformed Bombay into a major seaport on the Arabian Sea. Bombay in the 19th century was characterised by economic and educational development. During the early 20th century it became a strong base for the Indian independence movement. Upon India's independence in 1947 the city was incorporated into Bombay State. In 1960, following the Samyukta Maharashtra Movement, a new state of Maharashtra was created with Bombay as the capital.Mumbai is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India. It is also one of the world's top ten centres of commerce in terms of global financial flow, generating 6.16% of India's GDP and accounting for 25% of industrial output, 70% of maritime trade in India (Mumbai Port Trust and JNPT), and 70% of capital transactions to India's economy. The city houses important financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India, the SEBI and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations. It is also home to some of India's premier scientific and nuclear institutes like Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Nuclear Power Corporation of India, Indian Rare Earths, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, Atomic Energy Commission of India, and the Department of Atomic Energy. The city also houses India's Hindi (Bollywood) and Marathi cinema industries. Mumbai's business opportunities, as well as its potential to offer a higher standard of living, attract migrants from all over India, making the city a melting pot of many communities and cultures.
