Scorpion toxin to solve mystery of chronic pain

24-Aug-2019

Researchers have discovered a scorpion toxin that targets the 'wasabi receptor,' a chemical-sensing protein found in nerve cells that's responsible for the sinus-jolting sting of wasabi.

Because the toxin triggers a pain response, scientists think it can be used as a tool for studying chronic pain and inflammation, and may eventually lead to the development of new kinds of non-opioid pain relievers.

Debris created by India’s anti-satellite test still in space: NASA

24-Aug-2019

India had shot down its 740-kg Microsat-R satellite on March 27 this year in a demonstration of its capability to destroy the space-based infrastructure of an enemy country.

A majority of the debris created by India’s anti-satellite test of March 27 seem to have disintegrated, though more than 40 pieces are still moving around in space, according to space debris’ latest assessment

Crisis: Job loss in Parle G and Maruti Suzuki

23-Aug-2019

A sharp drop in the sales of a leading biscuit maker means the company may have to slash production, which may result in layoffs of as many as 10,000 people, Parle Products category head Mayank Shah, said in a telephone interview to news agency Reuters’.

“We have sought reduction of the GST on biscuits priced at Rs 100 per kg or below, which are typically sold in packs of Rs 5 and below, but if the government does not provide that stimulus, then we have no choice but to let go of 8,000 to 10,000 people from our workforce across factories as slowing sales are severely impacting us,” said Shah.

Companies like Hindustan Unilever and Nestle have reported weak growth owing to the slowdown in consumption.The stressed rural sector, which comprises one-third of the company’s market, is the key factor behind the company’s tepid performance. The revival of the distressed agriculture sector would be a positive for the FMCG industry.

It is not only FMCG industry that is likely to cut jobs due to the slowdown, the Indian auto industry has hit the rock bottom and is staring at a huge fall down. In July, the figure fell to 30.9 per cent amid a raging fear due to de-growth in the automobile and allied sectors. The country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) recently fired over 3,000 temporary employees due to the ripple down effect of automobile sales.

1. Do you know what is FMCG?
2. What could be the short-term and long-term impact of GST on India's Economy?

NASA examines rocky exoplanet surface resembling that of Moon or Mercury

23-Aug-2019

Scientists at NASA have achieved to get a rare glimpse of the conditions on the surface of a rocky exoplanet orbiting a star beyond the Sun.

NASA confirms Europa Clipper mission to Jupiter’s moon in search for alien life

23-Aug-2019

NASA has confirmed the next phase of development of the Europa Clipper mission . It is an interplanetary mission to Jupiter’s smallest moon Europa. The US space agency has cleared the mission to progress through its final design phase which is followed by the construction and testing of the entire spacecraft.

The latest development comes over 2 years after NASA originally announced its plans for the Galilean moon. To recall, NASA had announced the Europa Clipper mission in March 2017. The mission will conduct an in-depth exploration of Jupiter’s moon Europa and investigate whether the icy moon can have suitable conditions for sustaining life.

NASA targets to have the Europa Clipper spacecraft ready for launch early by 2023.

New planet discovered in orbit of Milky Way star

22-Aug-2019

A second planet has been discovered circling Beta Pictoris (abbreviated as β Pic b), a fledgling star in our own galaxy offering astronomers a rare glimpse of a planetary system in the making, according to a study published on Monday.

Visible with the naked eye, Beta Pictoris which has a mass nearly twice that of the Sun. It is a newborn by comparison i.e. only 23 million years old. It is also relatively nearby, just over 63 light years and is surrounded by a disk of stellar dust.

Mysterious Reservoir of Methane Has Been Identified

22-Aug-2019

Scientists have discovered evidence of a massive distributed methane reservoir formed by chemical reactions deep inside the ocean floor. Though Abiotic methane that is created in reactions has known to exist in the seabed but its origins in the underwater environment weren’t fully understood.

The researchers say methane is produced when seawater, moving slowly through deep oceanic crust, gets trapped inside hot forming mineral which is known as Olivine. It is the primary component of upper mantle of the earth. Over time, the mineral starts to cool.

With cooling, the water which is stored inside the Fluid inclusions inside the rock goes through a chemical reaction. It is known as Serpentinisation. It ends up yielding both methane and hydrogen. Then they can seal inside the rock over geological timescale till it is extracted by dissolution or fracturing of olivine host. There have been speculations by researchers of the occurrence of the process since the onset of plate tectonics.

Amazon Rainforest Burning: Brazil Reports Record Forest Fires

Water pollution to reduce economic growth by a third: World Bank

22-Aug-2019

Water pollution is likely to reduce economic growth by up to a third. This raises alarm and calling for action to address human and environmental harm. The report relied on what the bank said was the biggest ever database assembled on global water quality using monitoring stations, satellite data and machine learning models.

World Bank Group President David Malpass said, "Clean water is a key factor for economic growth. Deteriorating water quality is stalling economic growth, worsening health conditions, reducing food production, and exacerbating poverty in many countries.”

The authors divided their recommendations into three main areas: information campaigns to raise awareness, prevention efforts to stem some of the worst problems and investments to treat pollution once it has occurred, with more modern technologies like reverse-osmosis offering new pathways.

World Mosquito Day: 20-Aug

21-Aug-2019

World Mosquito Day is celebrated every year on August 20 and this day is dedicated to the vital discovery by a British doctor, Sir Ronald Ross in the year 1897. This discovery was that the transmission of malaria by female mosquitoes.

To commemorate the day, every year the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine celebrates the day as World Mosquito Day since the year 1930. Mosquitoes lead to health issues and can even be fatal.

The common diseases cause by mosquitoes are dengue, chikungunya, malaria. This day is a reminder for the world community to come together to raise awareness for diseases caused by mosquitoes and find ways to tame the menace caused by mosquitoes

Space Telescope Offers Rare Glimpse of Earth-Sized Rocky Exoplanet

21-Aug-2019

Direct observations from a NASA space telescope have for the first time revealed the atmospheric void of a rocky, Earth-sized world beyond our own solar system orbiting the most common type of star in the galaxy, according to a study released on Monday.

The research, published in the scientific journal Nature, also shows the distant planet's surface is likely to resemble the barren exterior of the Earth's moon or Mercury, possibly covered in dark volcanic rock.
