In 2007, discovery of some paleolithic sites in Jwalapuram in India showed that a small human population survived the Toba supereruption event some 76000 years ago. This human population who lived in the region were the early migrants from out of Africa.

Parrikar on #AgustaWestland in Rajya Sabha - RFP requirements were continuously modified until Agusta Westland was the only vendor left in the fray. The trial was conducted outside India, instead of doing so under operating conditions in India. The trial was actually done on a different model, because the 'winning' model was still under development. Attempts were also made to destroy relevant files in fire; some survived.

Tardigrade - One of the species known to have survived the 5 known #massExtinction events. The microscopic water creature grows to just over 1 mm on average, and is the only animal that can survive in the harsh environment of space. It can also withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, can cope with ridiculous amounts of pressure and radiation, and can live for more than 10 years without food or water.

Chanced upon this bit of information while watching "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" presented by Neil deGrasse Tyson. A #goodWatch.

Uma Bharti's Ministry of Water Resources has been one of the most disappointing of the +Narendra Modi​ Government. While many parts of #India is reeling under unprecedented drought, there hasn't been any information seen anywhere about what her Ministry is doing about the alarming water scarcity. On the other hand, Ministers like Suresh Prabhu & NItin Gadkari, among others, have worked and decided to take action on whatever they can, within the ambit of their respective ministries.

A look at the Ministry website (http://wrmin.nic.in) and it would appear all is hunky dory, when it is hardly so. There are so many sustainable water harvesting ideas implemented in real life throughout the world, but haven't really seen Uma Bharti talk or act on any such measures.

The vast empire of benamis created by Papa-Chor and Beta-Chor during Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi's #decadeOfDecay. Excellent exposé by S Gurumurthy in this report.

"All Wills divide the properties into two parts. One, the Will writer’s personal assets, and the other, the benami shares in Advantage and other companies. They bequeath their personal properties to their spouse and children. They gift away the benami shares worth hundreds of crores of rupees not to their children, or to any charity or poor, but to Chidambaram’s family, symbolically in the family grand daughter’s name.
...
.....
Remember Chidambaram’s threat on September 21, 2015 to sue The New Indian Express? He did not even dare sue this paper. Why didn’t he do it, despite the paper welcoming it? Because he knows what the truth is."
The New Indian Express had exposed Vasan Eye Care, Karti Chidambaram and P Chidambaram in a series of articles in September and October last. The other media to...

Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh of +Indian National Congress​ in the docks for the #AugustaWestland VVIP chopper dealings.

"The Italian Court judgment exposes the Congress’ role in pushing the deal and blames the erstwhile UPA Government for not cooperating with the Italian probe team. The other notes, part of the judgment, seized from the middlemen, say Sonia is the “driving force” behind this deal. Sonia’s name figures four times in the judgment."

I have used some outrageous name for my ad-hoc networks and wifi hotspots. Wouldn't try to pull this one though. :-)
 
A simple Wi-Fi hotspot sparked terrorism fears on a recent Australia-bound Qantas plane because someone thought it would be a good idea to name it "mobile detonation device."

A website featuring interactive timeline of 14 billion years of history, starting from the #BigBang. First look, seems quite exhaustive, and engaging. The website also lets you view unique timelines associated with specific topics - politics, religion, evolution, et al.

P.S. - For now supported only on Chrome & Safari.

#NAVIC (Navigation with Indian Constellation), India's very own GPS is ready after the successful launch of the 7th satellite.

"With this launch, the IRNSS constellation of seven satellites is now complete. This will allow the Indian Space Research Organisation (#ISRO) to focus on the process of designing front end chips which will receive the navigational signals sent out by the satellites. The system will be similar to the Global Positioning System (GPS) operated by the United States with 24 satellites and the Glonass, Galileo and BeiDou systems of Russia, Europe and China respectively."
A regional navigation satellite system with just seven spacecraft and in civil domain is unique to India.

Warka Water - This design has improved over the past few years. Looks like the kind of implementation that we need for water harvesting in #India too, in the wake of the current #drought conditions in several parts of India, and the depleting watertable.

The structure can be constructed with locally available material. In #Assam, though there is no shortage of water, this can be used to arrange for potable water. In the absence of steady water supply, there has been a haphazard growth of deep tube wells, which in turn has led to the depleting ground water levels. Bamboo, the main constructing material, is abundantly available in Assam.

I am a fan of the Premium Outlet Malls. I have been to the Premium Outlets in Gilroy, Round Rock, Allen, Orlando, and Osage Beach. And this one. I would say it's an average among others in other cities. There are good brands. But there are quite a few missing as well. Also, parking and the food court. Edit: They have more syores now. And more parking. I can also find free wifi throughout the mall. So, adding one more star.

Picturesque location, conveniently located, very spacious for large group, clean. We had a good time. Some problems that we found - WiFi never worked, had problems with kitchen appliances shutting off, they have washing machines but for some reason will not provide you with detergent to use in them, not very flexible if you plan to arrive before or after their office hours.

Went there once. Produce selection was good. But the chicken I brought from them was spoilt the very next day that I wanted to cook it, even though I refrigerated it. I may go to them to try again.
