Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation They now aim to complete the work by May 20 Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta however said that in the last 11 days of the month all the dug up roads in the city should be brought to a motorable condition before the monsoon sets in In the last couple of months road contractors have aggressively dug up several roads in the city to counter the civic administration’s decision of curtailing major road projects even though they might not be able to reinstate it to a motorable condition in time On several roads like the 150-m stretch of Swami Vivekananda Road in Bandra West which was excavated for repairs in October 2016 work has moved at a snail’s pace On other roads like the LBS Marg in Kurla multiple departments including the sewerage projects storm water drains and hydraulic engineering have dug deep pits at nearly 12 different locations Mehta however pointed out that in a city like Mumbai providing utilities was a complex and lengthy affair “There are two reasons why providing utilities is complicated in Mumbai – availability of space and time Time is always limited and there are traffic issues to be dealt with We cannot work in the night either since it would inconvenience citizens All these factors cause work in the city to be complex and slow” he said He added that apart from taking up a certain kind of work the BMC also has to make alternative arrangement “For instance if we have to install a pipe we have to make sure that we have an alternate system and the work has to be simultaneous so that the transition can be seamless” he said In order to ensure that residents were not inconvenienced during the monsoon season Mehta has constituted a system of bringing all road works to a safe stage “No matter what stage the work is going on a temporary layer can be placed on top to ensure that people are able to use the road during the months of monsoon Even if digging is going on right now the contractor will have to bring the road to a motorable condition Between May 20 and May 30 all junctions asphalt and cement concrete roads will have to be brought to a safe stage” he said With an aim to stay prepared for the heavy rain predicted by the India Meteorological Department he said the BMC was ready to float the tender to manufacture the pothole repair mix in their own plant after testing various pothole repair technologies during the monsoon last year According to Mehta 131 roads have been taken up for resurfacing and 54 could be completed before monsoon While two of them were nearing completion work on 52 others are scheduled to be completed by May 25 Similarly 583 roads have been taken under the category of ‘project roads’ and the civic authorities are hoping that work on 369 of them would be completed before the monsoon Currently work on 114 roads have been completed while on 255 others it is scheduled to be completed by May 31 The work on seven bridges out of total 30 have been completed

Sunday but is counting on the fans to help give his side an edge at home Liverpool beat German side Hoffenheim 4-2 at Anfield in a Champions League qualifying match in midweek in front of a raucous home crowd and Klopp called for an even better atmosphere against Arsenal in the Premier League “Arsenal are an outstanding strong side” Klopp told a news conference on Friday “Sanchez is probably

have “It’s Arsenal Big experience big quality speed technical skills different systems good players in each position on the pitch” Arsenal have not won a league game at Anfield since 2012 but Klopp has a couple of injury concerns before the match The German confirmed that Brazilian Philippe Coutinho (back) would play no part as he is still injured while right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is a

the Slovenian side as a potential threat Spanish side Sevilla beat Liverpool in the Europa League final in 2016 while Spartak are reigning Russian champions but Klopp is as concerned by Maribor and said he needed to start doing his homework on them “The problem with our group is that the less you know about someone the less respect you show them” said the German whose team have avoided European

planet-sized object struck the infant Earth some 45 billion years ago a new study has found confirming the most prevalent hypothesis on the formation of the lunar body A layer of iron and other elements deep underground is the evidence scientists have long been seeking to support this hypothesis researchers said The study used laboratory simulations of an Earth impact as evidence that a stratified layer beneath the rocky mantle -which appears in seismic data – was created when our planet was struck by a smaller object Watch What Else Is Making News Scientists argue this was the same impact that sent a great mass of debris hurtling into space creating the Moon “Our experiments bring additional evidence in favour of the giant impact hypothesis” said lead author Maylis Landeau who was a post-doctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University at the time of the research “They demonstrate that the giant impact scenario also explains the stratification inferred by seismology at the top of the present-day Earth’s core This result ties the present-day structure of Earth’s core to its formation” said Landeau now at the University of Cambridge in the UK Peter Olson research professor at Johns Hopkins said the giant impact argument for the formation of the Moon is the most prevalent scientific hypothesis on how Earth satellite was formed but it is still considered unproven because there’s been no “smoking gun” evidence “We’re saying this stratified layer might be the smoking gun Its properties are consistent with it being a vestige of that impact” said Olson Their argument is based on seismic evidence of the composition of the stratified layer – believed to be some 321 kilometres thick and lying 2900 kilometres below Earth’s surface – and on laboratory experiments simulating the turbulence of the impact The turbulence is believed to account for the stratification – meaning a mix of materials in layers rather than a homogeneous composition – at the top of the core The stratified layer is believed to consist of a mix of iron and lighter elements including oxygen sulphur and silicon The very existence of this layer is understood from seismic imaging as it lies far too deep underground to be sampled directly researchers said Till now most simulations of the impact have been done numerically and have not accounted for impact turbulence Turbulence is difficult to simulate mathematically and no computer model has yet done it successfully Olson said The researchers in this experiment simulated the impact using liquids meant to approximate the turbulent mixing of materials that would have occurred when the planetary object struck the young Earth The study appears in the journal Nature Geoscience For all the latest Technology News download

settled down to their usual battle on the secular/communalist border Now there is a new kid on the block and the oldies are uncertain as to what the battle is about But even so they never miss an opportunity to miss the bus whenever the M (minority/Muslim) issue comes up Something about the M issue makes their minds go numb and they settle into fixed positions whatever the facts The recent news that the Lashkar-e-Toiba was found recruiting in Muzaffarnagar had one simple fact that could have been celebrated; namely that the LeT did not succeed in recruiting anyone Local Muslims did not behave like cardboard characters in the way both the Congress and BJP have made them out to be Rahul Gandhi had jumped the gun and given us a garbled version of the story His aim was to point a finger at the BJP which had allegedly fomented the riot and alienated local Muslims so that they were soft targets for the LeT Not to be left behind the BJP is breathing fire about lapses in national security when all that has actually happened is that LeT operatives were caught thanks to the locals in UP Rejoice Pakistan’s simplistic views about Indian Muslims are disproved The Aam Aadmi Party has also fallen foul of not adopting the simplistic view of India which the older parties have When it comes to Kashmir the older parties have a schizophrenic view Kashmir is an integral part of India but unlike any other part of India no discussion is allowed about its people Prashant Bhushan who is not an ignoramus (as he has been portrayed) wondered whether the people of J&K had a view about the presence of the Army and AFSPA This is a question over which Irom Sharmila has been fasting for many long years We have reports that people living under AFSPA do not like it Why can someone not raise such a question Is India so touchy about Kashmir that it is beyond discussion Why does the junior gang of the Sangh Parivar feel it necessary to vandalise the offices of AAP Is this going to be a regular if the BJP comes to power Let us hope not But that may be why the old style of politics is looking so old The older parties are still dealing with Partition Both have problems about viewing Indians as Indians Indians for them are Hindus minorities or Muslims and the nondescript rest who may be minorities but cannot be called so Every Indian has to carry an identity which can then be treated to decide their vote bank as far as the oldies are concerned This is also the way the Mandal parties understand India; as a collection of exotic identities After 1989 when the Congress hegemony ended the Mandal parties flourished Their history begins not in 1947 but in 1977 at the end of the Emergency They take a narrow local view of India much like a kaleidoscope reflecting shards of broken coloured glass For them more reservations for separate identities is better Is it not time then 67 years after Independence to begin thinking of Indians as Indians This is what the message of AAP seems to be Delhi is a microcosm of the nation There is no reason to treat it as the old parties and Mandal parties tend to do — a collection of fragments AAP innovated and thought of all Dilliwalas as citizens whose demands needed urgent attention This idea can be extended across India and this is the secret behind the sudden upsurge of support for AAP The Congress has given up the ghost The BJP faces a new challenge Narendra Modi was the ideal villain for the Congress But that fight is no longer relevant The issue will not be 2002 or Article 370 It will be governance — but not as a code for a strong prime minister versus a weak PM It will be governance as a problem of citizens to be solved — not from above but by harnessing the energy at the grass-roots which can be

curtails secret surveillance but fails to make major changes to intelligence gathering apparatus Over the past few months each instance of electronic espionage revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden has proved more damaging to America’s reputation at home and abroad than the last After the US National Security Agency’s vast surveillance network became public and touched off diplomatic kerfuffles from Brazil to Germany while domestic criticism both from internet users and technology companies continued to mount it was evident that President Barack Obama would have to substantively engage with the breadth and depth of the intelligence gathering in question In a speech on Friday Obama spoke eloquently of the need to balance civil liberties and privacy with the imperative of national security But he also acknowledged that the intelligence community had gone too far in leveraging the opportunities afforded by technology and that it required greater oversight Yet the proposals that followed this admission failed to properly address the concerns he himself identified to be important Obama wisely extended some of the privacy protections granted to US citizens to foreign nationals outside the country and within certain unspecified limits ended the practice of spying on “friendly” and allied foreign leaders He didn’t however pare down the collection and analysis of foreigners’ personal information Perhaps his most significant announcement was that bulk collection of phone metadata by the government would no longer be permitted The database will now only be queried after a specific request receives approval from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — a court that has continually approved of the legality and constitutionality of the phone records programme The scope of the data gathering will continue unrestrained even though the White House panel concluded that the dragnet was “not essential” to foiling terrorist threats Obama called on Congress to appoint a legal counsel to appear before the FISC which meets in secret to represent a different position from the government’s The entirety of Obama’s measures falls frustratingly short of real reform Details on implementation were either absent or only vaguely alluded to Worse the specifics appear to be left to the judgement of individuals who created the problem in the first place No one speech could have grappled satisfactorily with all the issues the Snowden leaks have unearthed and as a point from where to begin the conversation Obama’s remarks ought to be welcomed But it should be clear to Congress

the other quadrant; that of frustration and insecurity which is where I suspectsome of the Australian cricketers find themselves And that is why the job of the leaderwhether the captain or the coachis to try and constantly push them towards the space defined by ambition and confidence The Imran Khan example Good leaders do that regularly and incompetentor uncaringleaders let their players wallow in insecurity and resultant frustration Imran Khan was a great leaderunder him Wasim Akram bloomed and Inzamam-ul Huq was able to grow strong roots With another captaintwo of Pakistans greatest ever talents might have been lostas some others have been The key to Imrans leadership was to understand the world these extraordinary players sought to inhabit and the hurdles they perceived on the way

behind the wild talent of a Harbhajan Singha Yuvraj Singh or a Virender Sehwag They needed reassurance and once given thatthey went on to great success MS Dhoni has tried thatwith a little less successwith Rohit Sharma for example Ian Chappell did that with a generation of Australian cricketers as did Mark Taylor Mike Brearley and Nasser Hussainin contrasting styles maybewere able to understand too the insecurity that accompanies a competitive but short-lived profession It is through this prism that we need to see where Australias cricketers are and whether the insecure world they now inhabit is dictating their approach It is easy to demand team spirit It is a strange animal that for no one has yet established whether winning creates team spirit or whether it is indeedas some of us believethe other way aroundthat a great team ethic leads to winning What we do know is that winning breeds security that can lead to generosity that is at the heart of team spirit Losingon the
