PM Modi Says AI, Blockchain Will Change the Nature of Jobs


Prime Minister Narendra Modi Thursday allayed fears of job loss due to technological development, saying artificial intelligence, blockchain, and other technologies will change the nature of employment and provide more opportunities.

Speaking at the launch of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, PM Modi said his government is open to policy changes to help reap benefits of the fourth industrial revolution. He said ‘Industry 4.0’ and the expansion of artificial intelligence (AI) would lead to better healthcare and reduce costs. It would also help farmers and benefit the agriculture sector, he said.

PM Modi said that as work progresses in the country, one of the targets is ‘Solve for India, Solve for the World’. “Some people are worried that the advancement of technology will have negative impact on jobs but the reality is otherwise. The Industry 4.0 will touch those aspects which still remain untouched so far. It will change the nature of job and create new opportunities,” PM Modi said.

Recognising this aspect, PM Modi said the government has launched several initiatives like Start Up India, Stand Up India, Digital India and Atal Innovation Mission. Noting that India is going to play a major role in the fourth industrial revolution, the Prime Minister said diversity, demographic potential, fast growing market and digital infrastructure have the potential to make India a global hub of research and innovation.

While the previous industrial revolutions eluded the country, India’s contribution to the fourth industrial revolution would be astonishing, PM Modi said. “India was not independent when the first and second industrial revolution happened. When third industrial revolution happened, India was struggling with challenges of just attained independence,” he said.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, blockchain and big data hold potential to take India to new heights, the Prime Minister said. Launching the centre, Modi said it opens the door to immense possibilities in the future. The centre at Mumbai is the fourth in the world after San Francisco, Tokyo, and Beijing.

“Emerging fields, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things, blockchain, and big data can take India to new heights of development, and improve the quality of life of its citizens,” PM Modi said, adding for India, this is not just an industrial transformation, but a social transformation.

Listing the achievements of his government, PM Modi said teledensity has increased to 93 percent and nearly 50 crore Indians now have mobiles. India is the largest mobile data consuming country in the world and also the one with the cheapest data rates, he said, adding mobile data consumption has increased 30 times in four years.

Over 120 crore Indians have Aadhaar, he said, adding that work to connect all the 2.5 lakh village panchayats with optic fibre would be completed soon. On blockchain technology, the Prime Minister said it would help in promoting the vision of minimum government and maximum governance. It will help in fast-tracking government services such as management of natural resources and property registration, he said.

The government is working on a national strategy for blockchain technology and will also announce a drone policy, the Prime Minister added. Speaking at the event, RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani said the future India will be propelled by three powers – next generation digital infrastructure, power of youth and power of the largest pool of next generation entrepreneurs.

“Each one of these three pillars supported by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious Digital India programme… I think this will create plethora of opportunities,” the Prime Minister said. The new technologies, including Internet of Things and blockchain, will help India to address challenges in education, healthcare, agriculture, job creation and environmental stainability, PM Modi said.

“I strongly believe that government, private sector and civil society have to form a coalition to tackle these most complex challenges,” PM Modi said, adding that the results can double the income of 115 million farmers. The Prime Minister added that India is a country that will make this whole industrial revolution a people-centric revolution.

Camel Milk is the Gift of Nature


 नई दिल्ली : प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी ऊंटनी का दूध बहुत पसंद करते हैं और गुजरात के मुख्यमंत्री रहने के दौरान उन्होंने ऊंटनी के दूध को बढ़ावा देने के लिए कई प्रयास किए थे. ऊंटनी का दूध पीएम मोदी की खास पसंद में शामिल है, क्योंकि इस दूध के फायदे ही कुछ ऐसे हैं. प्रधानमंत्री इस दूध के सहारे भारत में व्याप्त कुपोषण की समस्या को दूर करने का भी प्लान बना रहे हैं. 

प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी ने गुजरात के आणंद में अमूल के अति आधुनिक चॉकलेट प्लांट का उद्घाटन करते हुए कहा था कि ऊंटनी के दूध के उत्पाद बाजार में आने से उनका वर्षों पुराना सपना साकार हो गया है. उन्होंने कहा कि जब वह गुजरात के मुख्यमंत्री थे तब ऊंटनी के दूध को बढ़ावा देने की बात करते थे, उनकी इस बात का माखौल उड़ाया जाता था, लेकिन जब अमूल ने इस क्षेत्र में कदम बढ़ाया है तो उनका सपना साकार हो गया है. उन्होंने कहा कि ऊंटनी का दूध गाय के दूध से ज्यादा पौष्टिक होता है. ऊंटनी के दूध की प्रोसेसिंग होने से ऊंट पालकों को भी फायदा होगा.

क्या गुण हैं ऊंटनी के दूध में-
राजस्थान के बीकानेर स्थित राष्ट्रीय उष्ट्र अनुसंधान केंद्र में ऊंट पर अनुसंधान किए जाते हैं. यहां ऊंटनी के दूध के तमाम उत्पाद भी तैयार किए जाते हैं. ऊंटनी के दूध की पौष्टिकता के लिए हमने अनुसंधान केंद्र के निदेशक डॉ. एनवी पाटिल से बात की.

मां के दूध के समान पौष्टिक है ऊंटनी का दूध
डॉ. पाटिल ने बताया कि तमाम शोधों के बात यह साबित हो गया है कि ऊंटनी का दूध एक मां के दूध जितना पौष्टिक होता है. इसमें वे सभी तत्व पाए जाते हैं जो एक मां के दूध में होते हैं और जो एक बच्चे के लिए जरूरी होते हैं. ऊंटनी के दूध में एलर्जी नहीं होती है. इसके दूध में केसीन और आयरन भी प्रचूर मात्रा में होता है. विटामिन सी की मात्रा अन्य दूध के मुकाबले चार गुना अधिक होती है. और इसमें बीमारियों से लड़ने की क्षमता कहीं ज्यादा पाई जाती है.

Camel Milk

सेहत का खजाना
डॉ. एनवी पाटिल बताते हैं कि ऊंटनी का दूध सेहत का खजाना होता है. इसके दूध में प्रोटिन, कैल्शियम, कार्बोहाइड्रेड, फाइबर, लैक्टिक अम्ल, विटामिन-ए, ई, बी-2 और सी प्रचूर मात्रा में होता है. इसके लगातार सेवन करने से त्वाचा में निखार आता है, हड्डियां मजबूत होती हैं और शरीर में बीमारियों से लड़ने की क्षमता विकसित होती है.

Camel Milk

ऑर्टिम के लिए रामबाण
डॉ. पाटिल ने बताया कि यह बात शोध में साबित हो चुकी है कि दिमागी रूप से कमजोर बच्चे यानी ऑर्टिम से पीड़ित बच्चों के लिए यह दूध बहुत ही फायदेमंद साबित होता है. लगातार तीन महीने तक सेवन करने से बच्चों के मानसिक विकार में काफी सुधार देखा गया है. 

उन्होंने बताया कि स्पेशल बच्चों के लिए काम कर रही जर्मनी की एक संस्था ने ऑर्टिम से पीड़ित बच्चों को लगातार कई महीने तक ऊंटनी का दूध दिया तो उनमें चमत्कारिक असर देखने को मिला. डॉ. पाटिल ने बताया कि स्पेशल बच्चों के लिए काम कर रहे संस्थान उनसे नियमित दूध ले रहे हैं.

Camel Milk

डायबिटीज के लिए इंसुलिन है यह दूध
डॉ. पाटिल के मुताबित, ऊंटनी के एक लीटर दूध में लगभग 50 यूनिट तक इंसुलिन की मात्रा पाई जाती है. इंसुलिन शरीर में प्रतिरोधक क्षमता तैयार करता है और डायबिटीज जैसी बीमारियां ठीक करता है. उन्होंने बताया कि टाइप-1 और टाइप-2 डायबिटीज में ऊंटनी के दूध का लगातार सेवन करने से मधुमेह को काफी हद तक कंट्रोल किया जा सकता है.

हड्डियों को करता है मजबूत
एनआरसीसी के निदेशक डॉ. पाटिल ने बताया कि ऊंटनी के दूध में अल्फा हाइड्रोक्सिल अम्ल होता है, जो स्कीन को निखारने का काम करता है. इसके अलावा इसमें कैल्शियम काफी मात्रा में होता है. और लेक्टोफेरिन नामक तत्व कैंसर जैसी घातक बीमारी से लडऩे के लिए शरीर को तैयार करता है.

ऊंटनी के दूध की आइसक्रीम और मिठाइयां
बीकानेर के उष्ट्र अनुसंधान केंद्र में ऊंट को एक दूधारू पशु के रूप में स्‍थापित करने के लिए ऊंटनी के दूध से सुंगधित दूध, चाय, कॉफी एवं कुल्‍फी तैयार करके उनकी बिक्री की जा रही हैं. खासबात ये हैं कि इन उत्पादों की मांग भी तेजी से बढ़ रही है. डॉ. पाटिल ने बताया कि अब तो ऊंटनी के दूध से पेड़ा, बर्फी, गुलाबजामुन और चॉकलेट भी तैयार की जा रही है. इसके दूध से पनीर, मक्खन और घी भी निकाला जा रहा है. 

FSSAI ने दी मान्यता
संस्थान के निदेशक डॉ. पाटिल ने बताया कि पहले ऊंटनी के दूध को खाद्य पदार्थ नहीं माना जाता था, इसलिए ऊंट पालक इसका दूध नहीं बेच सकते थे. और जो चोरी-छिपे ऊंटनी का दूध बेचने की कोशिश भी करता था तो उसे खाद्य पदार्थों में मिलावट करने के जैसे आरोपों का सामना करना पड़ता था. लेकिन एनआरसीसी के अथक प्रयासों से भारतीय खाद्य संरक्षा एवं मानक प्राधिकरण ने फरवरी, 2017 में इसे खाद्य पदार्थ की मान्यता दी और FSSAI से हरी झंडी मिलने के बाद अब इसके दूध की बिक्री बाजार में की जा रही है.

Nature And Quality Of Bilateral Ties To Depend On Action Against Terror, US Tells Pakistan


Donald Trump has previously accused Pakistan of deceiving the US while receiving funds.

Washington: 

The US has told the new government in Pakistan that the nature and quality of their bilateral relationship would depend on actions taken by Islamabad against terrorist groups operating from its soil, a senior Trump administration official said Monday.

The US and others have long complained that Pakistan provides a safe haven to militant networks, allowing them to carry out cross-border attacks in Afghanistan – something that Islamabad denies.

President Donald Trump has previously accused Pakistan of deceiving the US while receiving billions of dollars.

In January, the US government announced it was cutting almost all security aid to the country.

“The nature and quality of our bilateral relationship is obviously going to be a function of whether we saw Pakistan take meaningful steps to hold support for the terrorist proxies that operate on its soil,” Alice Wells, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia told reporters during a conference call.

This was the message delivered by the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the new leadership of Pakistan during his recent visit to Islamabad, she said.

“It was an opportunity for the Secretary to meet with a new civilian leadership early in his tenure to describe the aspirations we have for the bilateral relationship that we would like to be able to work with Pakistan to establish stability and a political settlement in Afghanistan,” Alice Wells said as she briefed about Mr Pompeo’s September 5 visit to Pakistan.

“It was a very consistent message that Pompeo delivered,” she said.

The message conveyed America’s desire to work with Pakistan productively and constructively and the decisive and sustained steps that US believes are necessary to provide the appropriate incentive to convince the Taliban to go to the negotiating table, she said.

“I think the Secretary Pompeo appreciated the constructive conversations that he had in Islamabad. But the emphasis is on seeing actions that are understandable and measurable by the US and all of the other 40 countries involved in resolute support mission,” Ms Wells said.

Responding to a question, Ms Wells said in general the US supports a dialogue between India and Pakistan that can reduce tensions.

“We understand and have had frequent conversations with our Indian partners on the expectations that there would be a demonstrable reduction in cross border terrorism or infiltration that will help create the confidence for a dialogue to take place,” she said.

The US, she said, welcomes the positive messages that were exchanged between Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and “how the two governments can build on what is already existing structures, whether it’s the national security advisor dialogue or the DGMO channel or the people-to-people ties that have been sustained through the bus service.”

“If conditions can be created for a productive bilateral conversation, obviously we would be very supportive,” Ms Wells said.

Carbon Leak Responsible For Human Civilisation Development, Says Nature Geoscience Study


Southern ocean upwelling led to the warm climate critical to human development. (Representational)

New York: 

An increase in the activity of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Southern Ocean could explain the mysterious growth of human civilisation 11,000 years ago, says a study.

The researchers found that an increase in the Southern Ocean’s upwelling could be responsible for stabilising the climate of the Holocene – the period reaching more than 10,000 years before the Industrial Revolution – critical to the development of human civilisation.

The Holocene was an “interglacial period,” one of the rare intervals of warm climate that have occurred over the ice age cycles of the last million years.

The retreat of the glaciers opened a more expansive landscape for humans, and the higher concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere made for more productive agriculture, which allowed people to reduce their hunter-gathering activities and build permanent settlements, the researchers explained.

“Increased circulation in the Southern Ocean allowed CO2 to leak into the atmosphere, working to warm the planet,” said Daniel Sigman, Professor at Princeton University.

For the study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, the team investigated three types of fossils from several different areas of the Southern Ocean: diatoms and foraminifers, both shelled microorganisms found in the oceans, and deep-sea corals.

The fossil-bound nitrogen isotope measurements indicate that during the Holocene, increasing amounts of water, rich in nutrients and CO2, welled up from the deep ocean to the surface of the Southern Ocean.

The absorption of carbon by the ocean is slowing the rise in atmospheric CO2 produced by fossil fuel burning, and the upwelling of the Southern Ocean is still allowing some of that CO2 to vent back into the atmosphere.

The findings about ocean changes could also have implications for predicting how global warming will affect ocean circulation and how much atmospheric CO2 will rise due to fossil fuel burning, the researchers said.

No Objection On Putting Stickers To Identify Nature Of Vehicles, Says MoRTH


The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) informed the Supreme Court that there was “no objection” to putting stickers on vehicles which would indicate its nature as to whether it was electric, hybrid, diesel or BS-VI compliant. A bench of justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta was apprised by Additional Solicitor General A N S Nadkarni that there was no objection on the suggestion made in this regard by an advocate, who is assisting the court as an amicus curiae in the air pollution matter.

“On stickers, the MoRTH has agreed,” he told the bench and added that he has filed an affidavit in this regard. “Additional Solicitor General appearing on behalf of Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) says that there is no objection to the suggestion made by amicus curiae about putting stickers on the vehicles,” the bench noted in its order.

The bench asked advocate Aparajita Singh, assisting the court as an amicus curiae, to give a detailed submission in this regard and posted the matter for hearing on August 1.

On July 23, the amicus had handed over a note to the bench and had said that colour-coded stickers could be pasted on vehicles to give an indication of the nature of vehicle.

The amicus had said that such stickers, as used in Paris, would be more effective then having the “odd-even” vehicle rotation scheme in Delhi and it would also help in identifying older vehicles.

During the hearing today, the counsel appearing for the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) said they would file an affidavit in response to the affidavit filed earlier by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG) on sale and manufacture of BS-VI non-compliant vehicles in India.

The SIAM said that there were contradictions in the two affidavits filed by the government in this regard. The bench asked SIAM to file the affidavit by tomorrow.

The MoPNG, in its affidavit filed in the court, had said that it would be appropriate if manufacture of BS-IV vehicles was allowed till March 31, 2020 but no sale of non-compliant BS-VI vehicles should be permitted after April 1, 2020.

“If the sale is permitted from April 1, 2020 onwards, it will adversely affect the benefits of introduction of BS VI fuel,” the MoPNG had said.

These issues had cropped up when the court was hearing a petition on air pollution in Delhi-national capital region (NCR).

Here’s Why You Must Spend Some More Time Closer To Nature


Nature works like magic! It can make you feel positive and relaxed. Now, researchers have found that spending time in green outdoors can help in uplifting your mood and bring a significant improvement in your health as well. The study, led by Dr. Caoimhe Twohig-Bennett of Norwich Medical School, found that being exposed to green spaces can reduce risks of conditions like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, and even pre-term birth. The team of researchers came to this conclusion after analyzing as many as 140 studies from across the world in order to determine if time spent outdoors can really benefit the health in all aspects. Green spaces in the study have been referred to both open rural lands as well as parkland in cities and urban areas. The study, published in journal Environmental Research, helped in discovering that people who live near green spaces are likely to get better sleep and experience fewer physical symptoms of stress. But researchers are still exploring the long-term well-being of spending time in nature.

This is probably the reason why something like forest bathing is a popular therapy in Japan. It is a practice which involves participants spending time in the forest by either lying down or simply walking around in the lap of nature.

For now, there is a lot of research which testifies the health benefits of being in nature. But researchers don’t know as to why it is so relaxing and how it heals humans. Experts believe that people who live in greener areas have more opportunities for physical activity and socializing. Moreover, one gets exposed to diverse variety of bacteria when living close to nature. This can benefit immune system and also reduce inflammation in the body.

While more research is needed for confirming nature’s role in aiding good health, this study will be a motivating factor for many people to step out and spend some time in the open.

Our expert Dr Sarthak Bakshi agrees and says that spending time in nature can actually be beneficial for health. “There is no second thought about this. The flow of oxygen becomes better in the body when you spend more time amidst nature. It helps in improving the circulatory system. All human beings work on the basis of oxygen making capacity of the body. Living in a pollution-free environment can be beneficial for health,” he says.

We ask him what he does to spend time in nature and he says, “Early morning is the best time during which you should spend time in nature. This can be from 5 am to 7 am, for instance. This is the time when the brain is most active. Flow of oxygen is great at that time. You should walk bare foot on grass. Any such similar activity can improve blood circulation and brain function. It helps one think more productively.”

India-Pakistan Relations Are Purely Bilateral In Nature, Says India


China’s envoy to India pitched a trilateral summit between India, China and Pakistan. (File)

New Delhi:  India yesterday said matters related to India-Pakistan relations are purely bilateral in nature and that there is no scope for involvement of any third country, reacting to Chinese envoy Luo Zhaohui’s comments endorsing trilateral cooperation among India, China and Pakistan to resolve such issues.

The opposition Congress party also condemned the Chinese ambassador’s statement.

Endorsing the idea of trilateral cooperation between India, China and Pakistan under the aegis of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, Mr Luo said it could “in the future” help resolve bilateral issues between New Delhi and Islamabad and help maintain peace.

In response to queries on the comments made by the Chinese Ambassador to India on a possible trilateral summit between India, China and Pakistan, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India had not received any such suggestion from the Chinese government.

“We have seen reports on comments made by the Chinese Ambassador in this matter. We have not received any such suggestion from the Chinese government. We consider the statement as the personal opinion of the Ambassador. Matters related to India-Pakistan relations are purely bilateral in nature and have no scope for involvement of any third country,” he said.

Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said the Government of India should also strongly condemn the “unwarranted suggestion” of the Chinese Ambassador and that all issues between India and Pakistan would be resolved as per the Shimla Agreement.

The Chinese Ambassador said “some Indian friends” had suggested trilateral cooperation comprising India, China and Pakistan under the aegis of the SCO, which was a “very constructive idea”.

“Security cooperation is one of the three pillars of the SCO. Some Indian friends suggested that China, India and Pakistan may have some kind of trilateral cooperation under the SCO,” he said in his keynote address on ‘Beyond Wuhan: How Far and Fast can China-India Relations Go’ at an event organised by the Chinese Embassy here.

Responding to a question on whether a trilateral meet between the Asian neighbours will help in solving the India-Pakistan dispute, he said he personally considered it “a good and constructive idea”.
