Bombay gin how to serve
Kavi Arya, professor of computer science & engineering at IIT Bombay, believes this season’s e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC) will attract even more talent than last year. The competition, which his department organises, hit a record 34,500 registrations last season. Eight years ago, when it was launched, that number was 4,500. This year, the competition has been opened to many South Asian and Asean countries, and even Namibia and South Africa. “e-Yantra has become more than a competition. We’re seeing it as a platform where young engineers across South Asia and Africa – and soon maybe Europe – can collaborate and solve local problems,” says Arya, who had conceptualised the programme from an embedded systems course he used to teach with his colleague Krithi Ramamritham. It is the only competition in the world that is like a six-month long robotic MOOC (massive open online course). Students are first trained and then mentored to design and … [Read more...] about IIT Bombay’s robotics competition is seeing numbers surge
NEW DELHI: India has successfully flight tested the indigenously-developed hypersonic technology demonstrator vehicle (HSTDV) that is expected to power futuristic long-range missile systems and aerial platforms, officials said. The HSTDV, based on hypersonic propulsion technologies, has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), they said. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the DRDO over the successful test flight of the HSTDV, calling it a "landmark achievement" "I congratulate to DRDO on this landmark achievement towards realising PM's vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat. I spoke to the scientists associated with the project and congratulated them on this great achievement. India is proud of them," he tweeted. A DRDO official said, with the successful test flight of the HSTDV, India has demonstrated capabilities for highly complex technology that will serve as the building block for next generation hypersonic vehicles in partnership with … [Read more...] about India test fires indigenously-developed hypersonic technology demonstrator vehicle
How did that happen? The new genome supports an idea that had been kicking around for a while. About 34 million years ago, the ancestors of Xenopus laevis split off into two separate species. These species evolved separately until some time a bit before 17 million years ago. Then, some of them mated with the wrong species. Since the chromosomes were now rather distinct due to all those years of evolution, they couldn't pair properly to be separated when the fertilized egg divided. So the chromosomes were copied, but all the copies ended up in the same cell. … [Read more...] about What happens when you end up with an extra genome?
