which Karzai consistently refused Related News Aftermonths of political uncertainty because of a flawed and fraudulent election a national unity government was formed in Afghanistan on September 29 with Ashraf Ghani as president and Abdullah Abdullah as chief executive Many leaders of regional and Western countries participated in their oath-taking ceremony Vice President Hamid Ansari represented India at the event The new Afghan government is based on an extra-constitutional and unstable arrangement almost completely worked out by the US which had for many years wanted Ghani to succeed Hamid Karzai as president The US objective is to ensure that the Afghan political system does not collapse and the security forces do not split as it withdraws from the country Afghanistan faces immense political security and economic challenges The country’s politics will remain fraught as it will not be easy to reconcile the differences between Ghani and Abdullah or between their supporters Their first challenge is cabinet-formation and the appointment of senior officials While these are works in progress Ghani has begun to take important initiatives especially related to foreign and security affairs His approach is a significant departure from then president Karzai’s post-2009 tactics However similarities can be discerned between Ghani’s present attempts and those of Karzai in the first few years of his presidency specifically between 2002 and 2005 During this period Karzai did all that was possible to woo Pakistan and his relations with the US were strong It is clear that Ghani is preparing to tread the same path with Pakistan but he is seeking to place it within a conceptual framework In a speech at the Heart of Asia conference in Beijing last week Ghani said there were five important “circles” for bringing peace to Afghanistan The first circle consisted of Afghanistan’s six neighbours The rest in descending order of importance were Islamic countries Western states including the US Asian countries and international institutions It is significant that while India was the first country with which Karzai signed a strategic partnership agreement in Ghani’s foreign policy priorities it has been relegated to the fourth group of countries There have also been reports that the new Afghan government has signalled that arms supplies from India should be put on hold It is expected that Ghani will visit Pakistan shortly Significantly Pakistan army chief Raheel Sharif visited Kabul on November 6 He renewed the offer of providing military training which Karzai to Pakistan’s chagrin consistently refused There is no doubt that Pakistan holds the key to peace and stability in Afghanistan It controls the Taliban which is a great and growing security threat to the future of the country Ghani like Karzai wants Pakistan to pressure the Taliban to engage in a reconciliation process with the Afghan authorities The fact is that the Taliban has shown no indication of its willingness to share power in Kabul as it is wedded to the re-establishment of its Islamic emirate Yet Ghani will certainly persevere with Pakistan despite the misgivings of the Tajik and Hazara ethnic groups about the Taliban Ghani is aware that Pakistan wants to limit India’s role in Afghanistan It is likely that this will be conveyed to him in Islamabad How will he react His Beijing speech indicated a desire for India to continue assisting Afghanistan in its economic development but not in the security sector This marks a clear departure from the decision taken by Karzai around 2005: that India was an indispensable partner in security This is also reminiscent of the 1990s when India was kept out of all international peacemaking efforts in Afghanistan because of Pakistan’s veto The last time India was not invited to an international conference on Afghanistan was in 2009 It was not invited by Turkey at Pakistan’s insistence In late October National Security Advisor Ajit Doval visited Afghanistan to establish contact with the new government He met both Ghani and Abdullah apart from holding talks with his counterpart Hanif Atmar a close confidant of Ghani No account of Doval’s meetings has been made public Were Ghani Abdullah and Atmar all on the same page on the direction and content of India-Afghanistan ties especially regarding security and defence This is an important issue because over the past year Pakistan has made consistent efforts to reach out to all segments of Afghan political opinion including Tajik and Hazara leaders while many of them have felt ignored by India The fact is that India was so heavily invested in Karzai that it overlooked its old and established ties with them It is important for India to strengthen its contacts with all sections of the Afghan government for it is now virtually a transitional one The arrangement on which it is based requires a constitutional amendment to establish the post of an executive prime minister in a presidential system This could reopen issues relating to the nature of political authority itself India’s Afghan relations are entering a very complex phase They will have to be handled astutely otherwise our national and strategic interests will be damaged The writer a retired diplomat was India’s ambassador to Afghanistan from 2002 to 2005 [email protected] For all the

He is queering the pitch for the “serious” Republican candidates — the likes of Jeb Bush and Scott Walker — who must now devote a considerable chunk of their time and resources to developing a

quality with the volume of ultrafine particulates PM 25 and PM 10 violating the annual safe standards by over five times in certain areas As per pollution data shared by Union Environment Minister Anil Dave in reply to a question in Lok Sabha concentration of PM 25 and PM 10 steadily rose in Delhi since 2014 where 2016 stands out for a rapid build up compared to the previous years The annual prescribed standards of PM 25 and PM 10 are 40 and 60 micrograms per cubic metre (ug/m3) in India The corresponding 24-hour standards are 60 and 100 respectively Watch what else is making news: As against the annual standards the city’s Shahzadabagh monitoring station of Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) recorded PM 25 and PM 10 at 120 and 348 last year while the Siri Fort station recorded it at 102 and 320 respectively Annual values of PM 25 and PM 10 in Shahzadabagh were 62 and 243 in 2012; 88 and 265 in 2013; 69 and 234 in 2014; 99 and 261 in 2015 and 120 and 348 in 2016 The

last year over four times above the safe level while the same was 65 in case of gaseous pollutant NO2 (Nitrogen dioxide) Its annual standard is 40 “The particulate matter concentration was high during November 2016 – January 2017 because of prevailing meteorological conditions like calm weather low temperature very low wind speed and reduced mixing height thereby preventing dispersion of pollutants and leading to their accumulation” the minister added in his reply Delhi witnessed a severe episode of smog in the first week of November which was described the Centre for Science and Environment

Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: IANS | Singapore | Published: July 24 2016 4:20 pm Experts believe that the relatively new material could challenge silicon-based cells in the future commercially (Representational Picture) Top News Scientists have found a promising new alternative solar cell material that may lead to more efficient and cheaper solar panels Perovskite is relatively easy to process and therefore cheaper to manufacture but also has an efficiency of 22 per cent close to currently used silicon-based cells’ 25 per cent “Silicon is very labour-intensive and requires very high temperatures to process But with alternative cells there is inefficiency in capturing the energy from the Sun” said Wei Lin Leong from Singapore’s Agency for Science Technology and Research The dominance of commercial and research investment in silicon has made it difficult to convince researchers and commercial developers to adopt new technology “This new class of solar cell is only around four years old so although it has high performance people don’t understand the system and why it’s doing so well” Leong added Her study published recently in the journal Advanced Materials provided important insights into the basic physics of perovskite solar cells by measuring their efficiency at different temperatures and light intensities For most conventional or silicon-based solar cell technologies efficiency worsens as temperature rises However the perovskite cells still worked at higher temperatures with performance peaking at around 330 Kelvin — or 57 degrees Celsius — and then declining slightly after that meaning their performance will be high even on a relatively hot rooftop It also showed that contrary to arguments made by some critics the material was highly efficient at collecting charge through electrodes Watch Video: What’s making news Leong believes that perovskite will eventually challenge silicon commercially “In terms of efficiency perovskite is already close and it can be made much more cheaply” she said However more research needs to be done to ensure that the lead in perovskite does not leak and how to make cells big enough for commercial use For

oil brands available in the market revealed that most oil brands and almost all vanaspati brands are unfit for consumption owing to high trans fatty acid contents The study released by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) had tested 30 available brands in the marketincluding desi ghee and butterat its Delhi-based laboratory and arrived at the conclusions after conducting gas chromatography and other sophisticated tests “Through the testswe had sought to find out the fatty acid profile of each brand and the injurious trans fat content in them” Associate Director of CSEChandra Bhushan said during a press briefing in Delhi According to the studymost brands resort to deceptive labelling of trans fat content in their products and are unable to substantiate health benefits as proclaimed in their advertisements Trans fatty acids are touted to increase heart risks as they reduce the content of good cholesterol in the body and increases risk of infertility in womendiabetes and Alzheimer’s disease The tests recorded that trans fatty acid content in all vanaspati brands in the country are five to 12 times higher than the prescribed trans fat standard for edible oil set in Denmark at two per cent of the total oil Lowest amount of trans fatty acid content were found in desi ghee and Amul butter at 53 per cent and 37 per cent respectively Mustard oil brands indicated trans fat content within one per cent with good amount of essential fats like Omega 3Omega 6 and Omega 9 in them “The anomaly exist as the government chose to overlook the need to monitor trans fatty acid content in edible oils and thus ignoring the risk we are exposed to through our edible oils” CSE Director Sunita Narain said According to the WHO recommendationsthe acceptable limit of trans fatty acids in cooking oil is one per cent or below Ratios for the presence of essential and saturated fats are also mentioned in the recommendations Based on its study findingsthe CSEan NGOon Tuesday sought better labelling regulation on trans fatty acidstringent trans fatty standards aresearch on cooking oilguidelines on advertising and marketing of edible oilsand mandatory certification of all edible oils imported in the country The NGO had also gathered minutes of a meeting between the Central Committee for Food Standards and its sub-committee on oil and fats through an RTI query The RTI response revealed that the sub-committee had recommended that trans fatty acid content in edible oils be brought down to the level of five percent by 2009 in a phased manner Meanwhilethe government had sought more scientific data from the sub-committee and is awaiting the results “If you consider what the Union Health ministry has issued in the name of labelling nutrition factsyou will know how our food is at risk It literally allows companies to get away with anything as long as it is on the label This is just not acceptable” Narain said Based on the study findingsthe CSE researchers are of the opinion that not one oil type meets all body requirementsand on such circumstances it is best to consume oil in moderation and switch frequently between oil varieties to get maximum nutritional
