Close (Representational Image)Creative CommonsIn a shocking incident, an army major in Bengaluru had allegedly raped his colleague in his car on the Old Airport Road in East Bengaluru. The incident occurred on February 4, 2019, and a case was registered against the army major two days later.The victim said that she had attended a senior colleague’s party on the night of February 4 and had returned home late at night. The accused, Major Choudhary, had gone to her house later and asked her out for a drive. The victim agreed since she was hungry and thought they could grab a bite to eat.According to a report by the Times of India, the accused then took the victim to an isolated location and they both consumed alcohol in the car. The victim, in her complaint, said that Major Choudhary then began to behave in an inappropriate manner with her.The major then started to touch her in an improper manner which made her uncomfortable. She asked him to take her back home and he started the car and began to drive. However, he stopped the car, pushed the victim to the backseat and went on to rape her. “He pushed me forcefully on to the back seat of the car and raped me before dropping me at my residence,” the victim said in her complaint.The woman was in shock for a few days. She mustered up courage and told her family members and her senior officials. She proceeded to give an oral complaint to them and as admitted at the Command Hospital for medical treatment.On February 15, the woman went to the Viveknagar police station to file an FIR since it was required for the court. A case was lodged against Major Choudhury under Sections 376 (rape) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Major Choudhury was then arrested but let go on interim bail.The case was then transferred to the Ulsoor police after the Viveknagar police identified the crime scene and saw it was not in their jurisdiction. “We’re investigating the case and will take legal action against the accused,” Rahulkumar Shahapurwad, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (east division) was quoted as saying by TOI.

This picture of Rajinikanth’s lookalike is doing rounds online.TwitterEvery single gesture of top celebrities in public will usually have positive or negative reactions. In case of Rajinikanth, people considers him as a model man for good behaviour. Photos of him captured in public only proved that he is the epitome of simplicity.To give you an example, Rajinikanth holding a Nokia 1130 phone was widely circulated on internet for years stating that despite being a big star he found joy in using a basic cell phone. Likewise, Rajini wearing a simple dress and a slipper during a trip with his friends had also indicated that success had not gone to his head.Time and again, such photos and videos have only made the belief stronger about the Tamil superstar. However, not all we read or see about him is true and one such instance is the latest viral picture. A photo of a man wearing a simple t-shirt and shorts while speaking over a phone is doing rounds on social media sites and fans have mistaken it to be Thalaivar.The man in the picture has close resemblances to Rajinikanth. The white beard and overall look easily make one believe that it is the picture of the superstar.The fans have been spreading the picture on social media claiming that the picture is one more example for Rajini’s simplicity. However, it has now been clarified that it is not the superstar in the picture and someone else.Rajinikanth’s Next Film Rajinikanth, who is basking in the success of Petta, is yet to begin his next film to be directed by AR Murugadoss. The shooting is expected to commence next month. Rajinikanth’s Petta ends its 2nd weekend on a positive note.PR Handout
In line with its efforts to attract more foreign direct investment (FDI), Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Monday in his Budget for 2016-2017 that the foreign investment limit in Indian stock exchanges has been raised to 15 percent from the current five percent.It could pave the way for the listing of the Bombay Stock Exchange, Asia’s oldest stock exchange. “Investment limit for foreign entities in Indian stock exchanges will be enhanced from 5 to 15% on par with domestic institutions,” said Jaitley during his budget speech.Foreign investors in the BSE include Deutsche BÃ¶rse AG, Singapore Exchange Ltd, US billionaire George Soros’s hedge fund Quantum’s Mauritius investment arm Quantum (M) Ltd, Canada-based investor Thomas Caldwell’s Caldwell India Holdings Inc. and US fund Argonaut Private Equity.”BSE welcomes the proposal to increase the stake a foreign exchange can hold in an Indian exchange from 5% to 15% to bring it on par with Indian entities. This will also help attract more investments in India by creating stronger links with the best foreign exchanges,” Ashishkumar Chauhan, MD & CEO, BSE, said in a statement.In January this year, Indian capital markets regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) had relaxed some of the clauses pertaining to the listing of bourses. The BSE has been making efforts since 2012 to get listed when it hired 14 banks to advice it on the modalities. The BSE would engage the same set of firms now also for its IPO, the Mint had quoted a source familiar with the development as saying on condition of anonymity.The BSE was established on Jul. 9, 1875, at Dalal Street, and was one of the many places hit during a series of bomb blasts on Mar.12, 1993.
Khaleda Zia and Mirza FakhrulBangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir could not visit jailed party chairperson Khaleda Zia as she was ill.Shairul Kabir Khan, an officer of the BNP chair’s press wing, said this on Thursday quoting Fakhrul.Fakhrul was supposed to meet the former prime minister at 3:00pm, Shairul added.On Wednesday, a lawyer of the Anti-Corruption Commission said the BNP chair could not be produced before the court in Zia Charitable Trust for unavoidable reasons. A Comilla court then served a show cause notice on the Dhaka jail authorities regarding Khaleda’s failure to appear before the court.On 8 February last, the Dhaka Special Court-5 convicted the BNP chief and sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment in the case. She was then sent to the abandoned central jail on Nazimuddin Road in the capital.
Share Former congressman Anthony Weiner, whose penchant for sexting strangers online ended his political career and led to an investigation that upended the presidential race, will appear in federal court Friday to plead guilty to charges in connection with his online communications with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, officials said.A law enforcement official said Weiner has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the criminal charges had yet to be filed publicly with the court.Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the court hearing, which was scheduled for at 11 a.m.The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan confirmed the court appearance but declined to immediately release additional details about the charges against the Democrat.The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after the North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site, the Daily Mail, that she and the disgraced former politician had exchanged lewd messages for several months.She also accused him of asking her to undress on camera.The investigation led FBI agents to seize his laptop computer, which led to the discovery of a new cache of emails that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had sent to Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife.In October, just days before the election, FBI director James Comey stunned the country by announcing that his agency was reopening its closed investigation into Clinton’s handling of State Department business on a private email server so it could analyze the newly discovered correspondence.That inquiry was brief. Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Clinton could not be charged with a crime. But Clinton partly blamed her election loss to Republican Donald Trump on Comey’s announcement.Weiner’s lawyer, Arlo Devlin Brown, didn’t immediately return a message Friday.

In their study, Pradip Ghosh of the Nagoya Institute of Technology and his coauthors have demonstrated how to fabricate CNCSs on a transparent, flexible substrate at room temperature. The resulting CNCS-based electron emitter could then be used as a field electron emission (FEE) source for transparent, flexible field emission displays (FEDs). FEDs are a new kind of flat panel display that have several advantages, such as high contrast and lower power consumption than liquid crystal displays (LCDs). However, making FEDs transparent is very difficult since field electron emission requires a very high electric field and operation voltage. In order to achieve this high voltage, researchers usually use surfaces with a rugged sharp tip structure since the electric field is enhanced around the tip regions, enabling the operation voltage to be dramatically reduced. For this reason, as coauthor Masaki Tanemura from the Nagoya Institute of Technology explained, rugged surface structure is usually necessary for practical field electron emission sources, but so far ruggedness has not allowed for transparency.“Imagine sand-blasted glasses,” Tanemura told PhysOrg.com. “Glasses are transparent, but sand-blasted glasses are not due to the light scattering by the rugged surface structure. Similar to this example, transparency has not been possible for FEE sources.”By fabricating CNCSs that are smaller than the wavelength of visible light, the researchers found that they could overcome this challenge to produce fully transparent and flexible field electron emitters.“CNCSs have given transparency and flexibility to FEE sources for the first time,” Tanemura said. “To get CNCS-based transparent materials, it is highly desirable to control the diameter and length of the CNCSs. We have successfully controlled the diameter and length of the CNCSs below the wavelength of visible light at room temperature using an ion irradiation method. A careful scanning electron microscopy (SEM) inspection revealed that the diameter and length of most of the CNCSs were lower than the wavelength of the visible light. Thus this unique structure of the CNCSs was very useful to fabricate a CNCS-based transparent and flexible field electron emitter.” More information: Pradip Ghosh, M. Zamri Yusop, Syunsaku Satoh, Munisamy Subramanian, Akari Hayashi, Yasuhiko Hayashi, and Masaki Tanemura. “Transparent and Flexible Field Electron Emitters Based on the Conical Nanocarbon Structures.” J. Am. Chem. Soc. Doi:10.1021/ja909346e Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — During the past several years, researchers have used carbon nanotubes and nanofibers to fabricate a variety of transparent, flexible devices, such as OLEDs, transistors, and solar cells. But the development of transparent and flexible field electron emitters made of these nanomaterials still remains a challenge. In a new study, a team of researchers from Japan and Malaysia has shown that the key to the challenge may lie in the unique geometry of conical nanocarbon structures (CNCSs). In their experiments, the scientists bombarded a nafion substrate with argon ions for 30 seconds at room temperature. The irradiation produced uniformly distributed CNCSs over the entire nafion surface. The scientists measured that individual CNCSs had a base diameter of about 200 nanometers and a length/height of a few hundred nanometers, which is smaller than the wavelength of visible light. Overall, the material’s emission characteristics (its turn-on and threshold fields) were comparable to previous opaque electron emitters.As the researchers explain, the new method of using CNCSs for constructing transparent and flexible field electron emitters has several advantages. The method is simple in that it can be performed at room temperature, doesn’t require a catalyst, and doesn’t risk damaging the substrate. The scientists attribute these advantages to the unique conical geometry of the CNCSs. As a next step, the scientists plan to fabricate a transparent, flexible phosphor material, which is necessary for observing visible light emission and for the future construction of complete FEDs. The researchers predict that the technique could lead to transparent, flexible FEDs that are lightweight and inexpensive.“FED is a kind of flat panel display,” Tanemura explained. “Compared with other types of flat panel displays such as LCDs and electroluminescence displays, FED is advantageous in its brightness and size (a huge size is possible).” He added that transparent, flexible FEDs have great potential for applications including so-called head-up displays and highly intelligent information displays used in the coming ubiquitous world, when computers become thoroughly integrated into our everyday activities. “For example, head-up displays will be used on a curved front glass of vehicles (airplanes, trains, cars, and so on), full-face helmets, spectacles, and so on,” he said. “Usually it is transparent, but various kinds of information, such as maps, customer information, alarms, and security, will be displayed on demand. In the ubiquitous world, displays should be foldable (rollable) and light for mobility. You can enjoy TV, movies, games, communication, and obtain various kinds of information using an unfolded wide screen. Transparent and flexible FEDs make it realistic!” Citation: Conical nanocarbon structures could lead to flexible, transparent field emission displays (2010, March 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-03-conical-nanocarbon-flexible-transparent-field.html This SEM image shows conical nanocarbon structures (CNCSs) fabricated on a transparent and flexible nafion substrate. Because the CNCSs are smaller than the wavelength of visible light, they have given transparency and flexibility to field electron emission sources for the first time.
