Martin Weil, The Washington Post Published 2:48 pm PDT, Saturday, April 13, 2019 David Thouless, a British American physicist who shared the Nobel Prize for exploring strange states of matter and using a blend of physical theory and mathematical insight to create knowledge applicable in computers, electronics and materials science, died April 6 in Cambridge, England. He was 84. The University of Cambridge's Trinity Hall, where the condensed-matter physicist was an undergraduate and an honorary fellow, announced the death but did not provide a cause. In his prizewinning work, Dr. Thouless worked with materials so thin that they could be considered two-dimensional. To these, he applied quantum physics and topology, a branch of mathematics. Topology places a premium on recognizing objects with gross similarities in physical structure, objects that retain their distinctive aspects despite all sorts of bends and twists and folds. In the world of daily reality, substances may … [Read more...] about David Thouless, Nobel-winning physicist who explored strange states of matter, dies at 84

By: MEHAL JAIN 2 April 2019 1:24 PM GMT As Attorney General K. K. Venugopal resumed his submissions on the constitutionality of the passage as a Money Bill of the Finance Act of 2017 on Monday, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi asked for a copy of the Supreme Court's order in Rajiv Garg, where the court had considered whether different conditions of service could be prescribed for different tribunals.

AG Venugopal pointed out that in the order, the court had required that the Centre fulfill its commitment, as communicated through the then-AG and the then-Solicitor General, regarding the discrepancies in tenures and other conditions of services of the Members and Presiding Officers of the different Tribunals. "Pursuant to this, the (Finance) Act … [Read more...] about [Validity Of Finance Act 2017- Day-3] Majority Judgment In Aadhaar Case Covers My Case, Says AG As Constitution Bench Reserves Judgment

Supported by Out There ByDennis Overbye Feb. 15, 2019 Welcome to the hot stove science league. On Thursday, with great fanfare, officials from the U.S. National Science Foundation and U.K. Research and Innovation announced a $30 million project to double the sensitivity of the antennas for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, or LIGO, which stunned the world three years ago by detecting space-time ripples from colliding black holes. Only the day before, NASA had announced the selection of its newest astronomy mission: a satellite that will map the entire sky, including millions of galaxies, stars and planets, in three dimensions and 96 colors. The two-year mission, called SPHEREx (short for, hold on, the Spectro-Photometer for the … [Read more...] about Where’s the Nobel Prize for the Bureaucrats?
