  • Mars Had an Ocean, Scientists Say, Pointing to New Data

    After six years of planetary observations, scientists at NASA say they have found convincing new evidence that ancient Mars had an ocean. It was probably the size of the Arctic Ocean, larger than previously estimated, the researchers reported Thursday. The body of water spread across the low-lying plain of the planet's northern hemisphere for millions of years, they said. If confirmed, the findings would add significantly to scientists' understanding of the planet's history and lend new weight to the view that ancient Mars had everything needed for life to emerge.

  • After beef ban, Hindu groups force abattoirs to close

    By Meenakshi Sharma MUMBAI (Reuters) - Members of a Hindu nationalist group have forced several abattoirs in Maharashtra to shut after a law was passed banning the beef trade there, a leader of the group and a lawyer for meat traders said on Wednesday. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or World Hindu Council, a nationalist group linked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party, acted after winning a court order to stop the killing of bulls and bullocks. "Members of the VHP came to Deonar abattoir late at night and asked us to stop the slaughter, showing the copy of the High Court order," said Mohammad Ali Qureshi, president of the Bombay Suburban Beef Dealers Association. The beef trade is mainly controlled by minority Muslims, raising concern that the ban is driven by Modi loyalists pursuing a Hindu agenda.

  • #360View: Virat Kohli's volatile personality will stop him becoming a legend like Sachin Tendulkar

    Virat Kohli can never be the next Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli may bat like Tendulkar, and smash all the records in the game, but until he realises there are several other things in this world to respect other than a good-length delivery, he is never going to earn the kind of admiration and love that players like Tendulkar, Brian Lara and others have through their exploits. What transpired between Kohli and a senior Indian journalist in Perth on Tuesday over something written about his personal life needs to be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

  • India helps clear blocked Kathmandu airport

    Mumbai: India on Thursday helped clear the runway at Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport which was blocked by a foreign aircraft following a crash-landing accident on Wednesday, an official statement said here. Turkish Airlines flight THY-726 operated by an Airbus A-330, coming from Istanbul, overshot the runway and got stuck in the soft mud following inclement weather conditions on Wednesday. All the 238 passengers and crew aboard escaped unhurt, but the aircraft blocked the main runway at the airport, reducing its usable length to 5,000 feet and making it impossible for any commercial aircraft to land. The Indian Air Force received a request for help from Nepal around 7 pm on Wednesday following which it immediately activated the Hindon-based C-130J Super Hercules transport unit for the operation.

  • Alien abduction? Stolen by Russia? MH370 theories keep coming

    By Jane Wardell SYDNEY (Reuters) - A year on from the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an extraordinary amount of key data remains unknown - fuelling conspiracy theories and heated online debate about one of aviation's biggest mysteries. The resulting theories range from the wild - alien abduction, MH370 and its doomed fleetmate MH17 were the same plane - to sober, science-based arguments that the plane is in the southern Indian Ocean, but not necessarily in the current search area. "It's amazing how much information we don't have after looking at this case for all this time," said Jeff Wise, an aviation expert whose recently published Kindle book 'The Plane That Wasn't There' reached No.1 on Amazon's bestseller lists.

Four years on, Miyako is recovering, with tourist numbers back up and many former sites restored.
