Mega serial on Maharaja Ranjit Singh
Bollywood actor Raj Babbar’s ambitious Hindi serial on the life and achievements of legendary Maharaja Ranjit Singh, which would be telecast in 52 episodes on national hook-up in coming days, has been completed with the shooting at the historical Gobindgarh Fort, heretoday.

The main attraction of the serial for the people of the holy city would be that many actors and actresses including Arvinder Bhatti, Neeta Mohindera, Anita Devgan, Hardip Gill, Pawel Sandu, Rajvinder and Surjit Dhami hail from Amritsar.


Kabootarbaazi again Education tours are the new route

The Punjabi’s lure for foreign lands often betrays signs of desperation, bordering on mania. Many skirt the law to go abroad by joining a sports team or a musical group, and then opt out to vanish making borders irrelevant. Kabootarbaazi, an euphemism for human trafficking in Punjab, has become even more ingenious. Six students from Punjab, three from a college and three from two schools of Kapurthala district, recently went on an education tour to Germany but disappeared. Educational excursions now seem to have become the latest modus operandi of overzealous Punjabis to go to foreign lands for whatever the reasons. Earlier, two students from Jalandhar and four along with a woman teacher from Hoshiarpur district were reported missing on trips to NASA, clearly without intention to embark on a journey into space.


Indian studies must be integral part of syllabi’
Dr Harish Narang, dean, Jawarhar Lal Nehru University, while inaugurating the 3-week refresher course in English organized by Academic Staff College of Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, asked the scholars and academicians of India to unite and fight for the Indian studies, which have still not been assigned their rights despite the fact that many third world countries have marched much ahead in the field of literature and literary studies.

Speaking against the foreign studies, which are still continuing to be a part of almost all the Indian universities, he asked the framers of the syllabi to incorporate Indian writings or for that matter other regional writings in the recent syllabus. He said since most of the Indian writers were as good as or even better than British writers, there should be no reason why a particular course of study should be followed even after 51 years of India’s independence from the clutches of foreigners.

He asked the academicians to hold cudgels against the teachings of foreign studies in India and wage a war beyond English. He said 75 per cent of the syllabus should bear the works of Indian, Pakistani, Australian, Nigerian, Kenian, South African writers etc. He further said the foreign studies should be given only as much due as required and there were many more current and significant issues like female foeticide, communal harmony, Hindu-Muslim Unity etc, which needed to be discussed and focussed rather than continuing with the same old books and same old foreign writers for centuries together.

Punjab Agricultural University
was established in 1962 to serve the state of erstwhile Punjab. On trifurcation of Punjab in November 1966, Haryana Agricultural University was carved out of PAU by an Act of Parliament in February 1970. Later, in July 1970, Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidalya was established. In 2006 the College of Veterinary Science was upgraded to become Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Science University (GADVASU) at Ludhiana. The Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) is located in Ludhiana city (Punjab State) in north-west India at a distance of 316 km from New Delhi. It is well connected by road and rail with the national capital. Situated on the Ludhiana - Ferozepur Road, the University covers an area of 1510 acres on its main campus and 4615 acres at the regional research stations. Modeled on the pattern of land grant colleges in U.S.A., the PAU performs the integrated functions of teaching, research and extension in agriculture, agricultural engineering, home science and allied disciplines. The University has well equipped laboratories, library and lecture rooms and elaborate farm facilities. Hostel accommodation is available in the university hostels for single students. Married students, if accompanied by their family members, will have to find accommodation outside the campus.

The PAU has played a key role in increasing food grain production in the Punjab State several folds share its reputation and ushering in an era of Green Revolution in India. It has also made notable contributions in increasing livestock and poultry production. In recognition of its outstanding achievements in agricultural research, education and extension, it was adjudged the Best Agricultural University in India in 1995.

The Punjab Agricultural University now has four constituent colleges, viz. College of Agriculture, College of Agricultural Engineering, College of Home science and College of Basic Sciences & Humanities.

At present the University, through 28 departments in the four constituent colleges, offers 31 Master's and 30 Ph.D. programmes. The course curricula are constantly revised and restructured to keep pace with the latest developments in agriculture and allied fields.

Revised Theory Suggests Carbon Dioxide Levels Already in Danger Zone

The authors, who include two Yale scientists, assert that to maintain a planet similar to that on which civilization developed, an optimum CO2 level would be less than 350 ppm — a dramatic change from most previous studies, which suggested a danger level for CO2 is likely to be 450 ppm or higher. Atmospheric CO2 is currently 385 parts per million (ppm) and is increasing by about 2 ppm each year from the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and gas) and from the burning of forests.  

“This work and other recent publications suggest that we have reached CO2 levels that compromise the stability of the polar ice sheets,How fast ice sheets and sea level will respond are still poorly understood, but given the potential size of the disaster, I think it’s best not to learn this lesson firsthand.”
The statement is based on improved data on the Earth’s climate history and ongoing observations of change, especially in the polar regions. The authors use evidence of how the Earth responded to past changes of CO2 along with more recent patterns of climate changes to show that atmospheric CO2 has already entered a danger zone.


Controlling the flow of heat could be another way to store digital information


Someday, computers might store information using not only electric charges or magnetism, but also tiny packets of heat called phonons. Such heat-based memory is theoretically possible within the laws of physics, new research shows, and this memory would be durable and could be read without destroying the information — two key requirements for useful data storage.

Circuits based on quantum packets of heat rather than electric charges could enable computers to use waste heat — which is currently just shed to keep a processor from overheating — to perform useful computations and store information. A surge of research in the last few years on the physics of controlling the flow of heat packets has yielded designs for heat-based diodes, transistors and logic gates that perform AND, OR and NOT operations.

Unlike the electrons in an electric circuit, phonons in a thermal circuit are not actually particles. Instead, phonons are discrete units of vibration among the atoms in a solid. The stronger these vibrations are, the hotter the solid will be. In materials that conduct heat, phonons travel through the substance just as electrons travel through electrical conductors.

Concentrated heat normally tends to dissipate over time, which would seem to make heat-based memory impossible. Normally, heat flows faster when the temperature difference between two materials is greater, which is why a red-hot burner will heat a pot of water faster than a burner on medium. But the team previously showed that materials can be designed to work in the opposite way, so that a greater temperature difference causes heat to flow more slowly. This reversed response is what allows phonons at one of two temperatures — representing the “on” or “off” of digital memory — to stay at that temperature long enough to make the thermal memory useful.


Violent Video Games Affect Boys Biological Systems


In the study boys (12-15) were asked to play two different video games at home in the evening. The boys’ heart rate was registered, among other parameters. It turned out that the heart rate variability was affected to a higher degree when the boys were playing games focusing on violence compared with games without violent features. Differences in heart rate variability were registered both while the boys were playing the games and when they were sleeping that night. The boys themselves did not feel that they had slept poorly after having played violent games.

The results show that the autonomous nerve system, and thereby central physiological systems in the body, can be affected when you play violent games without your being aware of it. It is too early to draw conclusions about what the long-term significance of this sort of influence might be. What is important about this study is that the researchers have found a way, on the one hand, to study what happens physiologically when you play video or computer games and, on the other hand, to discern the effects of various types of games.

It is hoped that it will be possible to use the method to enhance our knowledge of what mechanisms could lie behind the association that has previously been suggested between violent games and aggressive behavior.


Getting the Solution Of Hair Loss

After six years of research scientists have succeeded in identifying a gene that is responsible for a rare hereditary form of hair loss known as Hypotrichosis simplex. The scientists are the first to identify a receptor that plays a role in hair growth. They now hope that their research findings will lead to new therapies that will work with various forms of hair loss.

Although Hypotrichosis simplex is very uncommon, it may prove critical in our search for an understand of the mechanisms of hair growth. The disease is inherited and affects both men and women. Sufferers generally begin to go bald during childhood. The process of hair loss (alopecia) then advances with age, especially around the scalp.

The cause of Hypotrichosis simplex in the form examined in this project is a genetic defect. It prevents certain receptor structures on the surface of hair follicle cells from being correctly formed. It has been found that when messengers from outside bind to these receptors they trigger a chain reaction in the cell interior which is apparently needed for the hair follicle to function normally. Such a receptor that plays a specific role in hair growth was previously unknown to scientists.
