Dr. George Njoroge has been over 100 patents for his work in cancer and immunology research and discovery. Although all of Njoroge’s patents and accomplishments were all in the United States, a quick search online reveals media coverage largely from African publishers. This weekend the scientist will be honored.

Last autumn, the world was excited by the discovery of an exoplanet called Ross 128 b, which is just 11 light years away from Earth. New work has for the first time determined detailed chemical abundances of the planet's host star, Ross 128. Reported by Science Daily 4 hours ago.

It’s no secret that the most valuable information is always the most well-hidden—either by unfortunate chance or by design. Luckily, Adam Candeub, professor of law at Michigan State University College of Law and director of the Intellectual Property, Information, and Communications Law Program, and his team of law students led by Christina Micakovic have finished designing the FCC explorer, the latest breakthrough in e-discovery. This program, inspired by Relativity, facilitates searches of documents contained in the Federal Communications Commission database. The need for this program arose when Candeub (pictured) found that litigation associates spend too much of their valuable time poring over the FCC’s vast database, hoping to find some trace of the quickest ex parte meeting between a lobbyist and a congressman. Too often these mandatory notes are made in a PDF or otherwise unsearchable format on the agency’s database. This is where the FCC Explorer…

REPORTABLE
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
CRIMINAL APPELLATE JURICTION
REVIEW PETITION (CRL.) NOS.671­673 OF 2017
IN
CRIMINAL APPEAL NOS.608 & 609­610 OF 2017


VINAY SHARMA & ANR. ... PETITIONERS
VERSUS
STATE OF NCT OF DELHI & ORS. ... RESPONDENTS

J U D G M E N T

ASHOK BHUSHAN, J.

These   review   petitions   have   been   filed   by   two
applicants   Vinay   Sharma­accused   No.1   and   Pawan   Kumar
Gupta­accused No.2 to review the judgment of this Court
dated   05.05.2017   by   which   judgment   this   Court   had
dismissed the criminal appeals filed by the petitioners
challenging   the   order   of   the   High   Court   confirming   the
death reference and dismissing the criminal appeals filed
2
by   the   petitioners   against   the   order   of   conviction   and
award of death sentence. 
2. Both the petitioners were tried for rape and murder
of   a   23   years'   age   lady   ­Nirbhaya   (changed   name).   The
trial   court   convicted   the   petitioners   along   with   three
others   and   awarded   death   sentence   to   all   the   four
accused.   Death   reference   No.6   of   2013   Was   sent   by   the
trial court to the High Court. Separate criminal appeals
were   also   filed   by   the   petitioners   challenging   the
judgment  of the trial  court.  Delhi  High Court  vide  its
judgment dated 13.03.2014 confirmed the death penalty to
all   the   four   convicts   including   petitioners,   Vinay
Sharma,   appellant   No.1   in   Criminal   Appeal   No.   609   of
2017,   Pawan   Kumar   Gupta,   appellant   No.1   in   Criminal
Appeal Nos.608 of 2017. The appeals were dismissed by the
judgment of this Court dated 05.05.2017. The petitioners
aggrieved by the said judgment dated 05.05.2017 by which
all   the   appeals   were   dismissed   have   filed   these   review
petitions   praying   for   reviewing   the   judgment   dated
05.05.2017.

3. We have heard the learned counsel, Shri A.P. Singh
appearing for the petitioners and Shri Sidharth Luthra,
learned senior counsel for the State. 
4. Shri A.P. Singh learned counsel for the peititoners
in   support   of   the   review   petitions   has   urged   several
grounds. Shri Singh submits that death penalty in India
needs to be abolished. He submits that there are several
reasons   for   opposing   death   penalty   which   broadly
speaking,   they   fall   under   two   categories,   moral   and
practical. This also goes against the principle of nonviolence
  that   India   has   advocated   for   decades.   In   the
year 1966, the Bill introducing death penalty abolition
was   passed   by   the   House   of   Parliament   in   England.   He
further   submitted   that   in   a   large   number   of   countries
death   penalty   has   been   abolished.   In   his   submission   he
has   referred   the   names   of   several   Latin   American
countries and  several  Australian States. 
5. Apart from above, several other contentions have been
advanced by Shri A.P. Singh which we proceed to note in
seriatim. Shri Singh submits that investigation and trial
4
has been carried out with the sole purpose of survival of
the prosecuting agency. The investigation is engaged in
maladroit effort to book the vulnerable and the innocent
so as to disguise and cover there inefficiency to catch
the   real   culprits.   The   political   class   is   using
investigating   agencies   as   tools   for   partisan   political
objective. 
6. PW.1,   during   his   cross­examination   was   confronted
with   his   statement   Ex.PW­1/A   qua   the   factum   of   not
disclosing the use of iron rod, the description of Bus,
the name of assailants either in MLC Ex.PW­51/A or in his
complaint   Ex.PW­1/A.   The   Bus,   Ex.P­1   has   been   falsely
implicated   in   the   present   case.   CCTV   footage   was   not
properly examined to check all possible Buses plying on
the   said   route.     The   Bus   was   taken   to   Tyagraj   Stadium
instead of the Police Station to avoid the media and to
facilitate the planting of evidence. 
7. That the three dying declarations have been contrived
and   deserved   to   be   kept   out   of   consideration   and   the
dying   declarations   do   not   inspire   confidence   for
5
variations in them relating to the number of assailants,
the description of Bus, the identity of accused etc. If
at all any dying declaration is to be relied on, it is
first dying declaration made on 16.12.2012 and recorded
by PW­49, Dr. Rashmi Ahuja, which dying declaration only
states that there were 4 to 5 persons in the Bus. 
8. In   the   statement   recorded   in   MLC   Ex.PW­49/A
prosecutrix   has   neither   named   any   of   the   accused   nor
mentioned   the   factum   of   iron   rod   being   used   by   the
accused   persons.   The   prosecutrix   could   not   have   given
such a lengthy dying declaration on 21.12.2012 when she
was   continuously   on   morphine.   Third   dying   declaration
recorded   by   the   Metropolitan   Magistrate,   PW­30,   on
25.12.2012, through gesture and writings is controverted
by allegations of false medical fitness certificate and
absence   of   videography.     The   use   of   iron   rod   was   not
mentioned   by   PW­1   in   his   statement.   Had   the   iron   rod
been   really   inserted   through   the   vagina,   it   would   have
first   destroyed   the   uterus   before   the   intestines   were
pulled   out.   There   were   no   rod   related   injuries   in   her
6
uterus   and   medical   science   too   does   not   assist   the
prosecution in their claim. 
9. The DNA test can not be treated as accurate, since
there was blood transfusion as the prosecutrix required
blood   and   when   there   is   mixing   of   blood,   the
DNA profile is likely to differ.  
10. The   High   Court   has   failed   to   appreciate   that
petitioner No.1, Vinay Sharma on the date of incident and
time was in a musical programme arranged by S.C.C. unit
of Church in his locality and he was there from 8.15 p.m.
to 11/12 p.m. on 16.12.2012. The presence of petitioner
No.1   in   musical   show   has   been   witnessed   by   defence
witnesses who had deposed before the Court. Ram Babu,DW10
had also videographed the show from the mobile phone
of   petitioner   No.1   which   was   produced   before   the   trial
court. 
11. The   application   for   ossification   test   submitted   by
petitioner   No.1   was   wrongly   turned   down   by   the   trial
court. The petitioner was actually born on 01.03.1995 but
his   date   of   birth   given   by   his   father   was   01.03.1994
7
which was only for the purpose of getting him admitted in
the MCD School. The petitioner was only 17 years 8 months
and 15 days old at the time of incident. 
12. The   real   date   of   birth   of   petitioner   No.2   is
08.10.1996 and he was also minor on the date of incident.
The   petitioners   were   not   habitual   offenders.   Number   of
dacoits have surrendered for the last several decades and
have reformed themselves. 
13. Shri   Sidharth   Luthra,   learned   senior   counsel
appearing for the State refuting the submissions of the
petitioners submitted that the petitioners already in a
long hearing of the appeals before this Court have made
all   possible   submissions   which   have   been   considered   by
this Court while deciding the appeals on 05.05.2017, the
review   petition   is   nothing   but   an   effort   by   the
petitioners   to   re­argue   the   appeals   on   merits   which   is
not permissible under the law. No grounds have been made
out to consider the review petitions. In so far as the
submission   of   the   learned   counsel   for   the   petitioners
that the death penalty be abolished in India, Shri Luthra
8
submits that the said submission need not to be gone into
in   these   review   petitions.   It   is   submitted   that   death
penalty   has   already   been   upheld   by   this   Court   by   the
Constitution   Bench   of   this   Court   in  Bachan   Singh   vs.
State of Punjab, (1980) 2 SCC 684. He submits that death
penalty being still in the statute book it is not open
for the petitioners to  argue  that  the  death penalty be
abolished   in   this   country.   The   abolition   of   the   death
penalty   is   a   legislative   function   and   unless   the
Parliament   passes   an   amending   Act   it   is   not   for   the
Courts to consider the said submission. 
14. With   regard   to   the   submissions   of   the   petitioners
that   investigation   was   faulty   and   prosecuting   agencies
had   roped   in   the   petitioners,   it   is   submitted   that
prosecution   was   scientifically   carried   out   in   efficient
manner which has also been noted by this Court and any
person against the prosecution are unjustified and have
to be ignored. 
15. The evidence of PW­1 and all infirmities which are
sought to be pointed out in these review petitions have
9
already   been   considered   and   gone   into   by   this   Court.
Learned counsel has referred  to in  paragraphs  65  to 97
and   425   to   434   of   the   judgment   where   this   Court   has
thoroughly considered all submissions regarding evidence
of PW­1 and this Court has rejected the inconsistencies,
shortcomings   and   omissions   as   being   pointed   by   the
petitioners. Coming to the submission that the Bus, P­1
has   been     falsely   implicated,   Shri   Luthra   submits   that
apart   from   CCTV   footage   where   Bus   was   noticed   twice
passing   in   front   of   the   hotel,   there   were   other
evidences, namely finger prints, wound stains and other
objects obtained from the Bus which proved that the Bus
was involved in the incident. Shri Luthra has referred to
paragraphs 104 and 105 where this argument has been noted
and rejected by this Court.
16. On the submissions raised by the learned counsel for
the petitioners regarding dying declarations, Shri Luthra
submits   that   all   arguments   pertaining   to   dying
declarations have  been considered and dealt with by this
Court   in   paragraphs   148   to   192   of   the   judgment   dated
10
05.05.2017 and petitioners cannot be allowed to reagitate
the same which have already been considered and rejected
by   this   Court.   With   regard   to   first   dying   declaration
which was the case history recorded by Dr. Rashmi Ahuja,
this   Court   has   considered   all   aspects   and   had   already
held that there was no infirmity in noticing the facts as
could be disclosed by the prosecutrix at that time when
she   had   undergone   traumatic   experience   immediately
before. 
17. The non­mention of use of iron rod in the MLC or PW1's
statement has also been considered by this Court and
this Court had held and found use of iron rod from the
evidence. The statement of PW­1 pertaining to use of iron
rod   to   injure   the   prosecutrix   has   also   been   considered
and   noticed   by   this   Court.   The   DNA   reports   have   been
examined   in   detail   by   this   Court   including   blood
transfusion which has also been considered in paragraphs
233­234. With regard to alibi of Vinay Sharma that he, at
the relevant time, was in a musical programme, this Court
in   its   judgment   dated   05.05.2017   has   considered   and
11
rejected the plea of alibi after consideration of Defence
evidence.   The   same   argument   cannot   be   allowed   to   be
raised in the review petition.  In so far as the argument
that petitioner No.1, Vinay  Sharma was a juvenile at the
time   of   the   commission   of   the   offence,   Shri   Luthra
mentioned   order   of   the   trial   court   dated   10.01.2013
which mentioned that age verification report of Vinay and
Pawan have been received and they do not dispute the age
verification report filed by the IO. The prosecuiton has
placed   the   certified   copy   of   the   admission   register   of
the first attended school along with the certified copy
of the admission form of the first class of accused­Vinay
Sharma   and   trial   court   after   considering   all   evidences
had held that Vinay Sharma was more than 18 years of age
at the time of commission of offence. On the claim that
Pawan was a juvenile, Shri Luthra referred to the order
dated 10.01.2013 where age verification report of Pawan
has   been   received   and   also   certified   copies   had   been
filed on record. The report had referred to the written
statement of the parents of both these accused where they
have   confirmed   the   age   of   their   wards.     There   was   no
12
infirmity   in   the   trial   court   taking   decision   that   both
were   major   and   the   trial   court   proceeded   accordingly.
There   is   no   substance   in   the   submission   raised   by   the
learned counsel for the petitioners. 
18. We have considered the submissions of the parties and
perused the records.
19. Before we enter into the submissions raised in these
review petitions, it is useful to recapitulate the scope
and   grounds   available   for   exercise   of   jurisdiction   by
this Court under Article 137. Order XLVII Rule 1 of the
Supreme   Court   Rules,   2013   dealing   with   review   is   as
follows: 
“i.   The   Court   may   review   its   judgment   or
order,   but   no   application   for   review   will   be
entertained   in   a   civil   proceeding   except   on
the ground mentioned in Order XLVII, rule 1 of
the Code, and in a criminal proceeding except
on the ground of an error apparent on the face
of the record.”
20. An   application   to   review   a   judgment   is   not   to   be
lightly   entertained   and   this   Court   could   exercise   its
review jurisdiction only when those grounds are made out
13
as provided in Order XLVII Rule 1 of the Supreme Court
Rules, 2013 framed under Article 145 of the Constitution
of India.  This Court in Sow Chandra Kante and another v.
Sheikh Habib, (1975) 1 SCC 674  speaking through Justice
V.R. Krishna Iyer on review has stated the following in
para 10:
“10. A review of a judgment is a serious step
and   reluctant   resort   to   it   is   proper   only
where a glaring omission or patent mistake or
like   grave   error   has   crept   in   earlier   by
judicial   fallibility.   A   mere   repetition,
through   different   counsel,   of   old   and
overruled   arguments,   a   second   trip   over
ineffectually covered ground or minor mistakes
of   inconsequential   import   are   obviously
insufficient.”
21. As   per   rule,   review   in   a   criminal   proceeding   is
permissible only on the ground of error apparent on the
face of the record. This Court in  P.N. Eswara Iyer and
others v. Registrar, Supreme Court of India, (1980) 4
SCC 680  while examining the review jurisdiction of this
Court  vis a vis  criminal and civil proceedings had made
the following observations in paras 34 and 35:  
“34.   The   rule,   on   its   face,   affords   a   wider
set of grounds for review for orders in  civil
proceedings,   but   limits   the   ground   vis­a­vis
14
criminal   proceedings  to   “errors   apparent  on
the   face  of   the   record”.   If   at   all,   the
concern   of   the   law   to   avoid   judicial   error
should   be   heightened   when   life   or   liberty   is
in peril since civil penalties are often less
traumatic. So, it is reasonable to assume that
the   framers   of   the   rules   could   not   have
intended   a   restrictive   review   over   criminal
orders   or   judgments.   It   is   likely   to   be   the
other   way   about.   Supposing   an   accused   is
sentenced   to   death   by   the   Supreme   Court   and
the “deceased” shows up in court and the court
discovers the tragic treachery of the recorded
testimony. Is the court helpless to review and
set   aside   the   sentence   of   hanging?   We   think
not. The power to review is in Article 137 and
it   is   equally   wide   in   all   proceedings.   The
rule   merely   canalises   the   flow   from   the
reservoir   of   power.   The   stream   cannot   stifle
the   source.   Moreover,   the   dynamics   of
interpretation   depend   on   the   demand   of   the
context   and   the   lexical   limits   of   the   test.
Here   “record”   means   any   material   which   is
already on record or may, with the permission
of the court, be brought on record. If justice
summons  the  Judges   to   allow  a   vital  material
in,   it   becomes   part   of   the   record;   and   if
apparent   error   is   there,   correction   becomes
necessitous.
35.   The   purpose   is   plain,   the   language   is
elastic   and   interpretation   of   a   necessary
power   must   naturally   be   expansive.   The
substantive power is derived from Article 137
and   is   as   wide   for   criminal   as   for   civil
proceedings.   Even   the   difference   in
phraseology   in   the   rule   (Order   40   Rule   2)
must, therefore, be read to encompass the same
area   and   not   to   engraft   an   artificial
divergence   productive   of   anomaly.   If   the
expression   “record”   is   read   to   mean,   in   its
15
semantic   sweep,   any   material   even   later
brought   on   record,   with   the   leave   of   the
court, it will embrace subsequent events, new
light and other grounds which we find in Order
47   Rule   1,   CPC.   We   see   no   insuperable
difficulty   in   equating   the   area  in   civil   and
criminal   proceedings   when   review   power   is
invoked from the same source.”
22. The scope of review jurisdiction has been considered
by   this   Court   in   a   number   of   cases   where   well   settled
principles   have   been   reiterated   time   and   again.   It   is
sufficient to refer to judgment of this Court in Kamlesh
Verma   vs.   Mayawati   and   others   (2013)   8   SCC   320,   where
this   Court   has   elaborately   considered   the   scope   of
review. In paras 17, 18, 20.1 and 20.2 following has been
laid down:
“17.  In a review petition, it is not open to
the   Court   to   reappreciate   the   evidence   and
reach a different conclusion, even if that is
possible.   Conclusion   arrived   at   on
appreciation of evidence cannot be assailed in
a   review   petition   unless   it   is   shown   that
there is an error apparent on the face of the
record   or   for   some   reason   akin   thereto.  This
Court in  Kerala SEB  v.  Hitech Electrothermics
& Hydropower Ltd.  held as under: (SCC p. 656,
para 10)
“10. … In a review petition it is not open to
this Court to reappreciate the evidence and
16
reach a different conclusion, even if that is
possible. The learned counsel for the Board
at   best   sought   to   impress   us   that   the
correspondence exchanged between the parties
did   not   support   the   conclusion   reached   by
this Court. We are afraid such a submission
cannot   be   permitted   to   be   advanced   in   a
review petition. The appreciation of evidence
on record is fully within the domain of the
appellate   court.   If   on   appreciation   of   the
evidence   produced,   the   court   records   a
finding   of   fact   and   reaches   a   conclusion,
that   conclusion   cannot   be   assailed   in   a
review petition unless it is shown that there
is   an   error   apparent   on   the   face   of   the
record   or   for   some   reason   akin   thereto.   It
has not been contended before us that there
is   any   error   apparent   on   the   face   of   the
record.   To   permit   the   review   petitioner   to
argue   on   a   question   of   appreciation   of
evidence would amount to converting a review
petition into an appeal in disguise.”
18.  Review   is   not   rehearing   of   an   original
matter. The power of review cannot be confused
with appellate power which enables a superior
court   to   correct   all   errors   committed   by   a
subordinate   court.   A   repetition   of   old   and
overruled   argument   is   not   enough   to   reopen
concluded   adjudications.   This   Court   in  Jain
Studios   Ltd.  v.  Shin   Satellite   Public   Co.
Ltd.,   held   as   under:   (SCC   pp.   504­505,   paras
11­12)
“11. So far as the grievance of the applicant
on merits is concerned, the learned counsel
for the opponent is right in submitting that
virtually the applicant seeks the same relief
which had been sought at the time of arguing
the main matter and had been negatived. Once
17
such   a   prayer   had   been   refused,   no   review
petition   would   lie   which   would   convert
rehearing   of   the   original   matter.   It   is
settled law that the power of review cannot
be   confused   with   appellate   power   which
enables   a   superior   court   to   correct   all
errors committed by a subordinate court. It
is   not   rehearing   of   an   original   matter.   A
repetition of old and overruled argument is
not enough to reopen concluded adjudications.
The   power   of   review   can   be   exercised   with
extreme care, caution and circumspection and
only in exceptional cases.
12. When a prayer to appoint an arbitrator by
the   applicant   herein   had   been   made   at   the
time when the arbitration petition was heard
and was rejected, the same relief cannot be
sought   by   an   indirect   method   by   filing   a
review   petition.   Such   petition,   in   my
opinion, is in the nature of ‘second innings’
which   is   impermissible   and   unwarranted   and
cannot be granted.””
20.1. When the review will be maintainable:
(i) Discovery of new and important matter or
evidence   which,   after   the   exercise   of   due
diligence,   was   not   within   knowledge   of   the
petitioner or could not be produced by him;
(ii) Mistake or error apparent on the face of
the record;
(iii) Any other sufficient reason.
The   words   “any   other   sufficient   reason”   have
been   interpreted   in  Chhajju   Ram  v.  Neki  and
approved by this Court in  Moran Mar Basselios
Catholicos v. Most Rev. Mar Poulose Athanasius
to   mean   “a   reason   sufficient   on   grounds   at
18
least   analogous   to   those   specified   in   the
rule”.   The   same   principles   have   been
reiterated   in  Union   of   India  v.  Sandur
Manganese & Iron Ores Ltd.
20.2.  When   the   review   will   not   be
maintainable:
(i)   A   repetition   of   old   and   overruled
argument   is   not   enough   to   reopen   concluded
adjudications.
(ii)   Minor   mistakes   of   inconsequential
import.
(iii)   Review   proceedings   cannot   be   equated
with the original hearing of the case.
(iv)   Review   is   not   maintainable   unless   the
material error, manifest on the face of the
order, undermines its soundness or results in
miscarriage of justice.
(v)   A   review   is   by   no   means   an   appeal   in
disguise   whereby   an   erroneous   decision   is
reheard   and   corrected   but   lies   only   for
patent error.
(vi) The mere possibility of two views on the
subject cannot be a ground for review.
(vii) The error apparent on the face of the
record should not be an error which has to be
fished out and searched.
(viii) The appreciation of evidence on record
is fully within the domain of the appellate
court, it cannot be permitted to be advanced
in the review petition.
(ix) Review is not maintainable when the same
relief sought at the time of arguing the main
matter had been negatived.”
19
23. This very Bench speaking through one of us (Justice
Ashok   Bhushan)   had   occasion   to   consider   the   ambit   and
scope of the review Jurisdiction in a criminal proceeding
in  Vikram Singh alias Vicky Walia and another vs. State
of Punjab and another (2017) 8 SCC 518.   In para 23 of
the judgement following has been stated: 
“23.   In   view   of   the   above,   it   is   clear   that
scope,   ambit   and   parameters   of   review
jurisdiction   are   well   defined.   Normally   in   a
criminal   proceeding,   review   applications
cannot be entertained except on the ground of
error   apparent   on   the   face   of   the   record.
Further,   the   power   given   to  this   Court   under
Article   137   is   wider   and   in   an   appropriate
case   can   be  exercised   to   mitigate   a  manifest
injustice. By review application an applicant
cannot be allowed to reargue the appeal on the
grounds   which   were   urged   at   the   time   of   the
hearing   of   the   criminal   appeal.   Even   if   the
applicant succeeds in establishing that there
may be another view possible on the conviction
or   sentence   of   the   accused   that   is   not   a
sufficient ground for review. This Court shall
exercise its jurisdiction to review only when
a glaring omission or patent mistake has crept
in   the   earlier   decision   due   to   judicial
fallibility. There has to be an error apparent
on   the   face   of   the   record   leading   to
miscarriage of justice to exercise the review
jurisdiction under Article 137 read with Order
40   Rule   1.   There   has   to   be   a   material   error
manifest   on   the   face   of   the   record   with
results in the miscarriage of justice.”

24. We first take up the submission of Shri A.P. Singh
regarding the abolition of death penalty in this counrty.
The   Constitution   Bench   of   this   Court   in  Bachan   Singh

REPORTABLE
IN SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
CRIMINAL APPELLATE JURISDICTION
REVIEW PETITION (CRL.) NO. 570 OF 2017
IN
CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 607 OF 2017

MUKESH ....PETITIONER
VERSUS
STATE OF NCT OF DELHI ....RESPONDENT

J U D G M E N T

ASHOK BHUSHAN J.

The petitioner by this review petition filed
under Article 137 of the Constitution of India prays
to review the final judgment dated 05.05.2017 passed
by this Court by which Criminal Appeal No. 607 of
2017 has been dismissed. The horrific incident which
took place on 16.12.2012 in Delhi wherein a young
2
lady of twenty three years (Nirbhaya, a changed name)
was gang raped and brutally injured who subsequently
died, in which the petitioner was one of the accused.
The petitioner was convicted and awarded death
sentence by Additional Sessions Judge (Special Fast
Track Court) Saket Court Complex New Delhi. Delhi
High Court confirmed the death reference and
dismissed the criminal appeal filed by the petitioner
challenging his conviction and sentence.
2. Aggrieved against the judgment of the Delhi High
Court dated 13.03.2014, Criminal Appeal No. 607 of
2017 was filed by the petitioner which appeal was
dismissed by this Court on 05.05.2017. Now, this
application is filed to review the judgment dated
05.05.2017 dismissing the Criminal Appeal of the
petitioner.
3. Before we enter into the submissions raised in
this review petition, it is useful to recapitulate
the scope and grounds available for exercise of
jurisdiction by this Court under Article 137. Order
3
XLVII Rule 1 of the Supreme Court Rules, 2013 dealing
with review is as follows:
“i. The Court may review its judgment or
order, but no application for review will
be entertained in a civil proceeding except
on the ground mentioned in Order XLVII,
rule 1 of the Code, and in a criminal
proceeding except on the ground of an error
apparent on the face of the record.”
4. In various decisions, this Court has already
settled the law with regards to the maintainability
of review petition under Article 137 of the
Constitution of India read with Order XL Rule 1 of
Supreme Court Rules, 1966 in criminal appeals. Before
we consider the points raised by the accused, we may
usefully refer to some of the decisions.
5. The power of review of the Supreme Court as
envisaged under Article 137 of the Constitution is no
doubt wider than review jurisdiction conferred by
other statutes on the Court. Article 137 empowers the
Supreme Court to review any judgment pronounced or
made, subject, of course, to the provisions of any
4
law made by Parliament or any rule made under Article
145 of the Constitution.
6. An application to review a judgment is not to be
lightly entertained and this Court could exercise its
review jurisdiction only when grounds are made out as
provided in Order XLVII Rule 1 of the Supreme Court
Rules, 2013 framed under Article 145 of the
Constitution of India. This Court in Sow Chandra
Kante and another v. Sheikh Habib, (1975) 1 SCC 674
speaking through Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer on review
has stated the following in para 10:
“10. A review of a judgment is a serious
step and reluctant resort to it is proper
only where a glaring omission or patent
mistake or like grave error has crept in
earlier by judicial fallibility. A mere
repetition, through different counsel, of
old and overruled arguments, a second trip
over ineffectually covered ground or minor
mistakes of inconsequential import are
obviously insufficient.”
7. As per rule, review in a criminal proceeding is
permissible only on the ground of error apparent on
the face of the record. This Court in P.N. Eswara
Iyer and others v. Registrar, Supreme Court of
5
India, (1980) 4 SCC 680 while examining the review
jurisdiction of this Court vis a vis criminal and
civil proceedings had made the following observations
in paras 34 and 35:
“34. The rule, on its face, affords a wider
set of grounds for review for orders in
civil proceedings, but limits the ground
vis-a-vis criminal proceedings to “errors
apparent on the face of the record”. If at
all, the concern of the law to avoid
judicial error should be heightened when
life or liberty is in peril since civil
penalties are often less traumatic. So, it
is reasonable to assume that the framers of
the rules could not have intended a
restrictive review over criminal orders or
judgments. It is likely to be the other way
about. Supposing an accused is sentenced to
death by the Supreme Court and the
“deceased” shows up in court and the court
discovers the tragic treachery of the
recorded testimony. Is the court helpless
to review and set aside the sentence of
hanging? We think not. The power to review
is in Article 137 and it is equally wide in
all proceedings. The rule merely canalises
the flow from the reservoir of power. The
stream cannot stifle the source. Moreover,
the dynamics of interpretation depend on
the demand of the context and the lexical
limits of the test. Here “record” means any
material which is already on record or may,
with the permission of the court, be
brought on record. If justice summons the
Judges to allow a vital material in, it
becomes part of the record; and if apparent
error is there, correction becomes
necessitous.
6
35. The purpose is plain, the language is
elastic and interpretation of a necessary
power must naturally be expansive. The
substantive power is derived from Article
137 and is as wide for criminal as for
civil proceedings. Even the difference in
phraseology in the rule (Order 40 Rule 2)
must, therefore, be read to encompass the
same area and not to engraft an artificial
divergence productive of anomaly. If the
expression “record” is read to mean, in its
semantic sweep, any material even later
brought on record, with the leave of the
court, it will embrace subsequent events,
new light and other grounds which we find
in Order 47 Rule 1, CPC. We see no
insuperable difficulty in equating the area
in civil and criminal proceedings when
review power is invoked from the same
source.”
8. In Devender Pal Singh v. State, NCT of Delhi,
(2003) 2 SCC 501, it was held that review is not
rehearing of the appeal all over again. The review is
not an appeal in disguise. In Suthendraraja alias
Suthenthira Raja alias Santhan and Others vs. State
through Superintendent of Police, CBI, (1999) 9 SCC
323, it was held as under:-
“5. It would be seen that the scope of
review in criminal proceedings has been
considerably widened by the pronouncement
in the aforesaid judgment. In any case
review is not rehearing of the appeal all
over again and to maintain a review
petition it has to be shown that there has
been a miscarriage of justice. Of course,
7
the expression “miscarriage of justice” is
all-embracing…”
9. The scope of review jurisdiction has been
considered by this Court in a number of cases and the
well settled principles have been reiterated time and
again. It is sufficient to refer to judgment of this
Court in Kamlesh Verma vs. Mayawati and others (2013)
8 SCC 320, where this Court has elaborately
considered the scope of review. In paras 17, 18, 20.1
and 20.2 following has been laid down:
“17. In a review petition, it is not open
to the Court to reappreciate the evidence
and reach a different conclusion, even if
that is possible. Conclusion arrived at on
appreciation of evidence cannot be assailed
in a review petition unless it is shown
that there is an error apparent on the face
of the record or for some reason akin
thereto. This Court in Kerala SEB v. Hitech
Electrothermics & Hydropower Ltd. held as
under: (SCC p. 656, para 10)
“10. … In a review petition it is not open
to this Court to reappreciate the evidence
and reach a different conclusion, even if
that is possible. The learned counsel for
the Board at best sought to impress us
that the correspondence exchanged between
the parties did not support the conclusion
reached by this Court. We are afraid such
a submission cannot be permitted to be
advanced in a review petition. The
appreciation of evidence on record is
8
fully within the domain of the appellate
court. If on appreciation of the evidence
produced, the court records a finding of
fact and reaches a conclusion, that
conclusion cannot be assailed in a review
petition unless it is shown that there is
an error apparent on the face of the
record or for some reason akin thereto. It
has not been contended before us that
there is any error apparent on the face of
the record. To permit the review
petitioner to argue on a question of
appreciation of evidence would amount to
converting a review petition into an
appeal in disguise.”
18. Review is not rehearing of an original
matter. The power of review cannot be
confused with appellate power which enables
a superior court to correct all errors
committed by a subordinate court. A
repetition of old and overruled argument is
not enough to reopen concluded
adjudications. This Court in Jain Studios
Ltd. v. Shin Satellite Public Co. Ltd.,
held as under: (SCC pp. 504-505, paras 11-
12)
“11. So far as the grievance of the
applicant on merits is concerned, the
learned counsel for the opponent is right
in submitting that virtually the applicant
seeks the same relief which had been
sought at the time of arguing the main
matter and had been negatived. Once such a
prayer had been refused, no review
petition would lie which would convert
rehearing of the original matter. It is
settled law that the power of review
cannot be confused with appellate power
which enables a superior court to correct
all errors committed by a subordinate
court. It is not rehearing of an original
9
matter. A repetition of old and overruled
argument is not enough to reopen concluded
adjudications. The power of review can be
exercised with extreme care, caution and
circumspection and only in exceptional
cases.
12. When a prayer to appoint an arbitrator
by the applicant herein had been made at
the time when the arbitration petition was
heard and was rejected, the same relief
cannot be sought by an indirect method by
filing a review petition. Such petition,
in my opinion, is in the nature of ‘second
innings’ which is impermissible and
unwarranted and cannot be granted.””
20.1. When the review will be maintainable:
(i) Discovery of new and important matter
or evidence which, after the exercise of
due diligence, was not within knowledge of
the petitioner or could not be produced by
him;
(ii) Mistake or error apparent on the face
of the record;
(iii) Any other sufficient reason.
The words “any other sufficient reason”
have been interpreted in Chhajju Ram v.
Neki and approved by this Court in Moran
Mar Basselios Catholicos v. Most Rev. Mar
Poulose Athanasius to mean “a reason
sufficient on grounds at least analogous to
those specified in the rule”. The same
principles have been reiterated in Union of
India v. Sandur Manganese & Iron Ores Ltd.
20.2. When the review will not be
maintainable:
(i) A repetition of old and overruled
argument is not enough to reopen concluded
adjudications.
(ii) Minor mistakes of inconsequential
import.
10
(iii) Review proceedings cannot be equated
with the original hearing of the case.
(iv) Review is not maintainable unless the
material error, manifest on the face of
the order, undermines its soundness or
results in miscarriage of justice.
(v) A review is by no means an appeal in
disguise whereby an erroneous decision is
reheard and corrected but lies only for
patent error.
(vi) The mere possibility of two views on
the subject cannot be a ground for review.
(vii) The error apparent on the face of
the record should not be an error which
has to be fished out and searched.
(viii) The appreciation of evidence on
record is fully within the domain of the
appellate court, it cannot be permitted to
be advanced in the review petition.
(ix) Review is not maintainable when the
same relief sought at the time of arguing
the main matter had been negatived.”
10. This Very Bench speaking through one of us
(Justice Ashok Bhushan) had occasion to consider the
ambit and scope of the review petition in a criminal
proceeding in Vikram Singh alias Vicky Walia and
another vs. State of Punjab and another (2017) 8 SCC
518. In para 23 of the judgement following has been
stated:
“23. In view of the above, it is clear that
scope, ambit and parameters of review
jurisdiction are well defined. Normally in
a criminal proceeding, review applications
11
cannot be entertained except on the ground
of error apparent on the face of the
record. Further, the power given to this
Court under Article 137 is wider and in an
appropriate case can be exercised to
mitigate a manifest injustice. By review
application an applicant cannot be allowed
to reargue the appeal on the grounds which
were urged at the time of the hearing of
the criminal appeal. Even if the applicant
succeeds in establishing that there may be
another view possible on the conviction or
sentence of the accused that is not a
sufficient ground for review. This Court
shall exercise its jurisdiction to review
only when a glaring omission or patent
mistake has crept in the earlier decision
due to judicial fallibility. There has to
be an error apparent on the face of the
record leading to miscarriage of justice to
exercise the review jurisdiction under
Article 137 read with Order 40 Rule 1.
There has to be a material error manifest
on the face of the record with results in
the miscarriage of justice.”
11. Applying the parameters of the review
jurisdiction as noticed above, we now proceed to
examine the grounds given in the review petition to
find out as to whether there are any grounds for
exercising the review jurisdiction by this court to
review the judgment dated 05.05.2017.
12
12. We have heard Shri M.L.Sharma learned counsel
appearing for the petitioner and Shri Sidharth Luthra
learned senior counsel appearing for the respondent.
13. In support of the review petition, Shri Sharma
has raised various submissions which according to Mr.
Sharma furnish grounds to review the judgment to
protect the fundamental rights of the petitioner
guaranteed under Articles 21, 20(3), 22(1) and 22(2)
of the Constitution of India. We now proceed to
examine the submissions in seriatim.
14. Shri Sharma submits that police arrested Mukesh
from Karoli, the State of Rajasthan on 17.12.2012 in
the morning and he was shown to be arrested in the
evening of 18.12.2012 at Safdarjung Hospital in
Delhi. He submits that Mukesh was not produced before
the concerned Magistrate within twenty four hours of
his arrest at Karoli which is violative of rights
guaranteed under Articles 22(1) and 22(2).
13
15. Shri Sharma has further contended that police
has coerced the petitioner to give his vakalatnama in
favour of one V.K. Anand advocate, who was police
sponsored advocate. He submits that the petitioner
has given his vakalatnama in favour of Shri M.L.
Sharma advocate in January 2013 and April 2013 but
police imposed Advocate V.K. Anand as his advocate
and compelled to give his confession statement under
Section 313 Cr.P.C.
16. Shri M.L. Sharma further submitted that accused
Mukesh was tortured by police with regard to which he
also filed an affidavit in March 2013 before the
trial court and this affidavit was not considered by
this Court. It is submitted that statement under
Section 313 Cr. P.C. of the petitioner was got
recorded under torture of police.
17. One of the submissions of Shri Sharma was that
accused Mukesh did not know driving of a bus and had
driving licence which was only for LMV(Motorcycle).
14
18. It is further submitted by Shri Sharma that this
Court has not considered the remand application filed
by the IO Exh. PW.80/D2, which clearly proves that no
disclosure existed till 22.12.2012.
19. One of the submissions which has been raised by
Shri Sharma is that this Court had not adverted to
the call details as per which accused Mukesh could
not have been in the bus on 16.12.2012, since at that
time a call was received by him from Ram Singh at
8.55 p.m.
20. Shri Sharma has attacked the second dying
declaration recorded by the SDM, Usha Chaturvedi and
submitted that in the police diary there is no
mention of dying declaration recorded by the SDM,
Usha Chaturvedi.
21. Shri Sharma has again attacked the evidence of
PW.1 and tried to point out certain contradictions
and errors.
15
22. Learned counsel submitted that as application for
additional evidences under Section 391 Cr.P.C.
remained pending before the Appellate Court and no
orders were passed therein.
23. Shri Sidharth Luthra, learned senior counsel
replying the aforesaid submissions contends that
police on information received from one Ram Singh has
reached to Karoli district, Rajasthan and reached at
the house of Mukesh at 10.45 a.m. and apprehended the
petitioner who was brought to Delhi and first taken
to Vasant Vihar Police Station and after coming to
know that IO was at Safdarjung Hospital, accused was
taken to the said hospital where he was formally
arrested at 6.30 p.m. on 18.12.2012.
24. Shri Luthra, learned senior counsel for the
respondent has taken us to the proceedings of trial
court and the orders passed by trial court in support
of his submission that it was on the statement of
Mukesh accused before the Court where he expressed a
desire to discharge Shri M.L. Sharma the Court passed
16
an order on 24.01.2013 discharging Shri Sharma on the
request of accused and thereafter V.K. Anand was
permitted to be engaged by the petitioner.
25. Opposing the submission regarding coercion and
torture, Shri Sidharth Luthara submitted that Mukesh
was in judicial custody and from judicial custody he
used to go to Court to attend the trial. On several
occasions, the Court interacted with the accused and
in none of the occasion, accused at any point of time
complained of any torture by police or jail
authorities. Shri Luthra further submitted that Court
had directed for medical checkups of Mukesh and also
sought a report of Mukesh. The torture by police was
never alleged or proved by the accused.
26. Learned Counsel for the respondent submits that
the issue regarding not having driving licence for
Bus was not raised during the trial or during the
cross-examination of the witnesses, hence, at this
stage, it cannot be allowed to be raised. 
17
27. Shri Sidharth Luthra replying the submission
regarding remand application dated 22.12.2012
submitted that after the arrest of accused on
18.12.2012, the accused was produced before the
Magistrate on 19.12.2012 and after TIP was conducted
on 20.12.2012 he was remanded in the police custody
for three days on 22.12.2012, hence the remand
application was given on 22.12.2012.
28. Shri Luthra replying the submission based on
call details of Mukesh it is submitted that this
Court in its judgment dated 05.05.2017 has
elaborately considered all the evidences and held
that Mukesh was in the bus, which was boarded by the
prosecutrix and PW.1 at about 9.00 p.m. and it was
proved that Mukesh was driving the bus. We have
considered the submissions of both the parties and
have perused the records.
29. Coming to the submission of arrest at Karoli, the
High Court has dealt this submission in paras 288 to
294. The High Court has noticed in para 290 that
petitioner in his statement under Section 313 Cr.P.C.
18
in an answer of question No.132 claimed that he was
not apprehended at his village Karoli, Rajasthan but
was apprehended at Ravidass Camp in Delhi. High Court
noticing the judgment of the Privy Council in the
Prabhu v. Emperor, AIR 1944 PC 73 had observed that
conviction shall not be affected by any irregularity
in his arrest. Police have shown a formal arrest on
18.12.2012 and this Court vide its judgment dated
05.05.2017 has also noticed the fact that accused was
formally arrested at Safdarjung Hospital on
18.12.2012 at 6.30 p.m. at Safdarjung Hospital, in
the evening. This submission does not make out any
ground to hold that conviction and trial of the
accused is vitiated in any manner so as to call for
review of the judgment dated 05.05.2017. There is no
apparent error in the Judgment dated 05.05.2017.
30. Coming to the submission that Shri V.K. Anand,
Advocate was forced on petitioner it is sufficient to
note the order sheet of trial court which noticed all
facts. In proceeding dated 24.01.2013 the Trial Court
has recorded:
19
“... Lastly, I have called accused Mukesh
from JC, in my chamber and asked him about
his counsel. He replied that earlier he had
appointed Shri Manohar Lal Sharma, Advocate
vide vakalatnamas dated 08.01.2013 and
09.01.2013 but now would like to change his
counsel and has appointed Mr. V.K.Anand,
Advocate, as his counsel before this court
from today. Vakalatnama is filed. Shri
Manohar Lal Sharma, Advocate, is thus
discharged.
Accused Mukesh even informed that he do
not intend to avail the services of Shri N.
Rajaraman, Advocate-on-record, in the
Transfer Petition pending before the
Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and that he
had requested Shri V.K.Anand, Advocate, to
be his counsel, even in the Hon’ble Supreme
Court of India and to engage some other
Advocate-on-Record.
Again when the accused made his request to avail
the services of M.L. Sharma, said fact was recorded
on 20.03.2013 proceeding and Shri Sharma started
representing accused Mukesh. Subsequent order-sheet
also indicates that Shri Sharma did not appear on
several occasions, more than half a dozen of the
dates, which were fixed for cross-examination on
behalf of the accused then the Court was left with no
option but to appoint a amicus curiae. The submission
of Shri Sharma that Advocate V.K. Anand was forced on
20
the accused against his will is wholly untenable and
does not furnish any ground to review the judgment.
31. With regard to submission regarding torture by
police, it is sufficient to note that the trial court
interacted with the accused on many occasions and on
none of the occasions any complaint was made by
accused. The accused was in judicial custody. The
trial court in its proceeding dated 24.01.2013
recorded following:
“....I have also enquired from accused
Mukesh if he has any complaint with regard
to the manner in which he has been treated
in custody but he replied that he has no
complaint in this regard.”
The submission of Shri Sharma that statement of
accused recorded under Section 313 Cr.P.C. was under
pressure and influence of amicus curiae has no legs
to stand. The above argument is stated to be rejected
since the statement was recorded by the Court and the
accused was coming from judicial custody and could
not be tortured by the police as alleged. On the
affidavit filed in March 2013, the trial court had
21
promptly called for a report and matter was not
further pursued by the trial court since no material
came to substantiate the plea.
32. This Court in its judgment dated 05.05.2017 has
held after marshalling evidence of PW.1 and other
evidences including scientific evidences that Mukesh
was driving the bus. The issue whether he had a
driving licence for driving the bus or not has no
relevance with regard to conviction recorded against
the accused which has been affirmed by the High court
and this Court as well.
33. This Court in its judgment has referred to
recoveries made from the petitioner in para No. 127.
Remand application was given by police after
conclusion of T.I.P. Recoveries made from petitioner
has been discussed and believed, we cannot permit the
petitioner to argue the said issues again.
34. Learned counsel for accused No.2-Mukesh contended
that accused No.2-Mukesh does not know driving as
22
evidenced from his driving licence which shows that
the licence was only for Light Motor Vehicle (LMV)
and that he does not know how to drive a bus. Further
contention of accused No.2-Mukesh is that as per the
Call Details Record (CDR), he could not have been
present in the bus on 16.12.2012 at 08.55 p.m.
35. The argument that accused No.2-Mukesh does not
know driving has not been raised during the trial or
in evidence and also cross-examination of witnesses
by the accused. Upon consideration of the evidence of
PW-1 and other evidences including scientific
evidence, this Court has arrived at the conclusion
that accused no.2-Mukesh was driving the bus. Issue
whether accused No.2-Mukesh has a driving licence for
driving the bus or not has no relevance with regard
to conviction recorded against the accused which has
been affirmed by the High Court and this Court as
well.
36. There is no merit in the contention that accused
No.2-Mukesh could not have driven the bus and that he
23
was not present in the bus at the time of the
incident. It is to be noted that in the questioning
under Section 313 Crl.P.C., accused No.2-Mukesh has
clearly admitted that he was driving the bus and this
has been elaborately referred to in para (302) of the
Judgment as under:-
"302. In his questioning under Section 313
Cr.PC, Mukesh, A-2, has admitted that he
and A-1, Ram Singh (since deceased), are
brothers. He has also admitted that on the
night of 16-12-2012, he was driving the bus
and that accused Pawan and Vinay Sharma
were seated on the backside of the driver’s
seat, whereas Akshay and Ram Singh were
sitting in the driver’s cabin. The relevant
portion of his statement under Section 313
Cr.PC reads as under:
 “Q.2. It is in evidence against you
that PW 1 further deposed that they
inquired from 4-5 autorickshaw-walas to
take them to Dwarka, but they all
refused. At about 9 p.m. they reached at
Munirka Bus-stand and found a whitecoloured
bus on which “Yadav” was
written. A boy in the bus was calling
for commuters for Dwarka/Palam Mod. PW 1
noticed yellow and green lines/stripes
on the bus and that the entry gate of
the bus was ahead of its front tyre, as
in luxury buses and that the front tyre
was not having a wheel cover. What do
you have to say?
Ans.: I was driving the bus while my
brother Ram Singh, since deceased and
JCL, Raju was calling for passengers by
saying “Palam/Dwarka Mod”.
24
Q.4.: It is in evidence against you that
during the course of his deposition,
complainant, PW 1 has identified you
accused Mukesh to be the person who was
sitting on the driver’s seat and was
driving the bus; PW 1 further identified
your co-accused Ram Singh (since
deceased), and Akshay Kumar to be the
person who were sitting in the driver’s
cabin along with the driver; PW 1 had
also identified your co-accused Pawan
Kumar who was sitting in front of him in
two seats row of the bus; PW 1 had also
identified your co-accused Vinay Sharma
to be the person who was sitting in
three seats row just behind the driver’s
cabin, when PW 1 entered the bus; PW 1
has also deposed before the court that
the conductor who was calling him and
his friend/prosecutrix to board the bus,
Ext. P-1 was not among the accused
person being tried in this court.
Ans.: Accused Pawan and accused Vinay
Sharma were sitting on my backside of
the driver’s seat and whereas accused
Akshay was sitting in the driver’s cabin
while my brother Ram Singh, since
deceased was asking for passengers.
Q.5.: It is in evidence against you that
after entering the bus PW 1 noticed that
seats cover of the bus were of red
colour and it had yellow-coloured
curtains and the windows of the bus had
black film on it. The windows were at
quite a height as in luxury buses. As PW
1 sat down inside the bus, he noticed
that two of you accused were sitting in
the driver’s cabin were coming and
returning to the driver’s cabin. PW 1
paid an amount of Rs 20 as bus fare to
the conductor i.e. Rs 10 per head. What
do you have to say?
25
Ans.: It is correct that the windows of
the bus, Ext. P-1 were having black film
on it but I cannot say if the seats of
the bus were having red covers or that
the curtains were of yellow colour as my
brother Ram Singh, since deceased, only
used to drive the bus daily and that on
that day since he was drunk heavily so I
had gone to Munirka to bring him to my
house and hence, I was driving the bus
on that day. I had gone to Munirka with
my nephew on my cycle to fetch Ram
Singh, since deceased, and that the
other boys along with Ram Singh had
already taken the bus from R.K. Puram. I
was called by Ram Singh on phone to come
at Munirka.”
37. The contention raised by Mr. Sharma is that
accused No.2-Mukesh was not present in the bus has
been considered in the judgment of this Court in more
than one place. Presence of accused No.2-Mukesh in
the bus has also been considered while considering
the presence of witness PW-82, Shri Ram Adhar in the
bus in para (298). As pointed out above, in his
questioning under Section 313 Crl.P.C., accused No.2-
Mukesh has admitted that he and accused No.1-Ram
Singh (since deceased) are brothers and on the night
of 16.12.2012, he (accused No.2-Mukesh) was driving
the bus and that accused-Pawan and accused-Vinay
Sharma were seated on the back side of the driver
26
seat whereas accused-Akshay was sitting in the
Driver's cabin. Accused-Ram Singh and JCL, Raju were
calling for passengers by saying "Palam/Dwarka Mod".
When there is such clear admission in the questioning
under Section 313 Cr.P.C, now the Petitioner-accused
No.2-Mukesh cannot raise the plea denying his
presence in the bus.
38. Another contention raised by accused No.2-Mukesh
is that he could not have been present in the bus on
16.12.2012 at 08.55 p.m. as seen from Call Details
Record (CDR) and that his phone number was giving the
location of Lajpat Nagar. This issue has been
elaborately argued and dealt with as overlapping of
signals in close proximity is common.
39. This Court had elaborately considered all the
three dying declarations. All the three dying
declarations having been relied by trial court, High
Court and this Court and all arguments attacking the
dying declarations having been considered and
rejected, in its judgment dated 05.05.2017, we are of
the view that the petitioner cannot be allowed to re-
27
agitate the same issues which were already considered
and expressly rejected by this Court.
40. The victim made three dying declarations:- (i)
statement recorded by PW-49 Dr. Rashmi Ahuja
immediately after the victim was admitted to the
hospital; (ii) Dying declaration (Ex.PW-27/A)
recorded by PW-27 SDM Usha Chaturvedi on 21.12.2012;
and (iii) dying declaration(Ex.PW-30/D) recorded by
PW-30 Pawan Kumar, Metropolitan Magistrate on
25.12.2012 at 1:00 p.m. by multiple choice questions
and recording answers by gestures and writing. In the
first dying declaration (Ex.PW-49/A), the prosecutrix
has stated that more than two men committed rape on
her, bit her on lips, cheeks and breast and also
subjected her to unnatural sex. In the second dying
declaration (Ex.PW-27/A) recorded by PW-27, the
victim has narrated the entire incident in great
detail, specifying the role of each accused, rape
committed by number of persons, insertion of iron rod
in her private parts, description of the bus, robbery
committed and throwing of both the victims out of the
28
moving bus in naked condition. On 25.12.2012 at 1:00
p.m., PW-30 Pawan Kumar, Metropolitan Magistrate
recorded the statement by putting multiple choice
questions to the victim and by getting answers
through gestures and writing. While making the
third declarati

Charmed baryons provide an ideal laboratory to probe non-perturbative strong interaction dynamics. The LHCb experiment, with its excellent vertexing, tracking and particle identification capabilities, is very suitable for the study of charmed baryons, and interesting results in this area have been obtained from several recent analyses of LHCb data. Following the discovery of the doubly charmed baryon $\Xi_{cc}^{++}$ via its decay to $\Lambda_c^+ K^- \pi^+ \pi^+$, this state has now also been confirmed through its decay to the final state $\Xi_c^+ \pi^+$. In addition, the $\Xi_{cc}^{++}$ lifetime has been measured for the first time and found to be $\tau(\Xi_{cc}^{++}) = 256^{+24}_{-22}$ (stat) $\pm 14$ (syst) fs, which firmly establishes that the $\Xi_{cc}^{++}$ baryon decays weakly. In a third analysis, the $\Omega_c^0$ lifetime is measured to be $268 \pm 24$ fs, which is approximately four times larger than, and inconsistent with, the current world average, $69 \pm 12$ fs. These results will be reported in this presentation.

Keep dreaming ML, you have no clue how the television industry works. Just because you "think" that is what you would do doesnt mean the industry does that. You are incredibly obtuse with this. And I never once implied that I knew everyone in the industry. I work in the industry. I have worked in the Production side, I have worked in the operations side. I have been on the side when my show was cancelled due to ratings or because the high expectations did not come through. The show I am working on now is going very well and there are talks of spinning it off if we do well in the next season. If we do not keep our numbers, then there is no chance. So you'll have to excuse me if I sound like I know what I am talking about because I do. You can keep believing in what you want along with Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny.

"Listen ML I never once said that I know everyone in the industry. " Correct. You just implied that you did. You do seem familiar with semantics. What you did was tell me I was wrong when I commented to someone who claimed that there would be no season 2 if there were financial issues with the show that that would not be the case if they had a commitment to season 2 going into season one. Which in the premium cable and streaming world is VERY common. You dropped the "fool" label on me for that absolutely correct assessment. Thus not really cementing your position as someone whose opinions on the subject are more informed than others. And for the record, I'm not prepared to say how much of a success or failure STD is for CBSAA. We don't have their numbers and CBS has never made them public. (I would guess they aren't great because if they were it seems likely CBS would tout how great they were as they did at the beginning of STD) I only think it is safe to assume that STD is likely by far their most streamed content. So in that sense, it's a success. I will also say the commitment to other Trek projects may or may not be connected to how CBSAA thinks STD has fared. One version is it did so great at getting and keeping subscribers that they suddenly decided to announce an entire STEU for the future. Anther is that so very many subscribers bailed out that CBS, who was already thinking about creating a STEU down the line, fast tracked their plans in an effort to get the subscribers why bailed out in droves after the STD finale. Or it could be a number of other things. We just don't know. All we are doing is speculating.

The problem with this idea is that there was no color and gender blindness before at all, you had token people who weren't white or male, but that was the exception, it was in reality an all white men's club. Yeah the ideal would not 'require' diversity, but we have to start correcting the problem that exists before we can reach equilibrium. This is like the asshole who respond to Black Lives Matter with All Lives Matter, as if that wasn't already understood. Looking to hire more women and minorities does not preclude getting the best for the job, it just means you have more candidates to look through than the normal white men.

I don't agree, I think you are deluding yourself if you really think this quota thing doesn't exists (do you think they would really come out and spell it out?) I don't think Robert Duncan McNeill is the kind of guy who resorts to making excuses, I prefer to think what he says is true. Have we really come to the age where people can't say what's on their mind because of the fear of being labelled as something they are not? Simply because of the fact that they are observing, thinking and analyzing instead of blindly following a bandwagon that is starting to disregard basic human rights in the guise of social activism.

I have middle-eastern parents and am gay. I guess I might qualify for more stuff because of this sort of incentive, I just worry people are being picked - not because of their ability to tell good stories, direct characters, film, pace, watch continuity, design... instead, they’re picked for reasons which ultimately I feel, patronize. I couldn’t give two figs for Robert directing or not directing but where I feel Discovery has dropped the ball is not successfully fitting into that rich 50 year tapestry - by it’s selective visual reboot. I begrudge it’s designers and exec for trying to reinvent the wheel and realising how laboured their efforts for diversity are - I have even less respect for the show... and that’s coming from a creative, ‘diverse’ guy that is in the arts. Discovery makes my blood boil more and more.

It took a hundred fifty years (and counting) of regulatory decree for access to education by people of color (ancestors of slaves, in many cases) because, as it was argued, educating 'those people' was a pointless exercise because they were mentally inferior. It's not a 'necessary evil' to acknowledge that wrongs occurred, it's a necessary step to address the problem for healing and reconciliation to take place. Just pretending racism and sexism is no longer a problem allows those practice it to perpetuate it.

Guys, he's making an excuse. As the article points out, 10 out of 13 DISCO episodes last season were directed by white males. It also mentions several episodes slated to be directed by white males this season. All of the comments about quotas (which even he does not allege) or hiring someone other than "the best person for the job" lack foundation (at least if you assume that "best person" is likely to be a white male). The truth is simply that, at least for this season, DISCO has tapped directors that are not him. Rather than simply acknowledge that, he suggested a non-performance-based rationale for why that might be the case. And rather than being zapped as anti-feminist or anti-minority, he put in a good word for diversity hiring. None of that means that he was passed over for diversity reasons. If he were better than Jonathan Frakes (or others actually tapped for the job), he'd be in the director's chair.

Unfortunately, I think many people are being dishonest about these issues. Those in the public eye doubly so, since they see the consequences of speaking against the status quo. Let me just say this, nothing forced has good results in the end. I think people should have dealt with these in a more polite and patient manner, instead of just taking up arms over it.

Listen ML I never once said that I know everyone in the industry. I am telling you what the industry does in these cases. If a show does well or if the network sees that there is a future for the show, they will green light another season. Or, in this case, other shows in the same vein. Such as was the case when CSI was a huge success and it spawned 4 other companion shows and there were plans for others. With the low interest in CSI NY and the dropping numbers from CSI Miami... And the horrible CSI Cyber not getting numbers, they cancelled the shows and scrapped plans for the CSI LA that was in production. If the other CSIs did well, we would have had another show on the air. If Discovery was an utter failure for CBSAA, they would have never greenlit other TREK shows. And they would have maybe done a second season and scrapped it the way they did with ENTERPRISE. I don't claim to know everyone in the industry but what I do know how the industry works. Canadian productions tend to have more leeway up here on the Canadian networks due to Canadian content laws.

"But, to answer your question, Discovery does a limited number of episodes and a priority there is to get female and diverse directors, so there are fewer opportunities for people like me, which is a great thing." Utterly, utterly ridiculous. The fact that he keeps trying to delude us (and himself) that this is "a great thing" is so sad. We've gone from one extreme to the other, the world we live in the last few years, sadly. How about hiring with a priority for TALENT, not gender, race, sexuality. Pick the best person for the job, if they're a straight white male, great. If they're a blue, gay female, great. Just don't swap one case of casual sexism/discrimination for another. I wish people like him would have the balls to argue about meritocracy being the first priority when hiring staff, not gender, but unfortunately it would be a PR disaster thanks to some easily outraged people in 2017/2018.

"Case in point: check S.J. Clarkson’s resume. Does it scream “genius” to you?" To play the Devil's Advocate here... Maybe she has never had a real opportunity to show her "genius"? Yes, there absolutely has been, and still is, sexism and racism in hiring practices not only in Hollywood but across the board. That said, IMHO, it does not feel right (to me at least) to fight racism with... More racism. And BTW... I would not call Roddenberry a genius.

" Ideally, there should be more opportunities for everyone (it shouldn’t be a zero sum game) and if he’s the best person to direct a particular episode of DSC, he should. By definition, the best person stepping away makes the final product worse." He is correct if the goal is diversity over the best for the job. If they are actively searching for more non-caucasian directors, then caucasian directors will not get their shot at the job at all just because of their race. But, if they are just opening up the search radius to actively include ALL applicants... Then yes, there are not fewer opportunities for non-caucasians. Only that the ability to get jobs has become more difficult as there are now additional qualified applicants to get past. Which, in a perfect world, the way things should be anyway.

While I agree that opportunity must be given, I also think that many people are using the "forced diversification" excuse to give themselves better status in life regardless of their talent and just because they belong to a certain group. I just don't want opportunists to rise up from this and take the jobs of people that deserve it more. Somehow these days we can't criticize them, but women and people from different races can also be these opportunists, so I still say we need to vex people effectively before hiring them for jobs before looking at their gender or race. What am I trying to say is that untalented people shouldn't use these modern movements to put themselves into higher position just because they are gaining newfound power.

Case in point, most of the top movies so far in 2018 all star white men and are directed by white men, including 7 of the Top 10 domestic films: Infinity Gauntlet (Russo Brothers) Incredibles (Brad Bird) Deadpool 2 (David Leitch) Solo (Ron Howard) A Quiet Place (John Krasinski) Ready Player One (Stephen Spielberg) Peter Rabbit (Will Gluck) Oceans 8 (Gary Ross) But increased focus on diversity has meant 2 of them are directed by non white men: Black Panther (Ryan Coogler) Jurassic Park (JA Batona) And you'd be hard pressed to claim directors like Coogler, Bayona, and Duvarnay are only getting opportunities because of their race: they are all extremely talented.

Few Americans know that Canada has an official government policy of not just English French bilingualism but also the Federal government adopted "official multiculturalism" as a policy back when Justin Trudeau's father Pierre was the Prime Minister. Unlike the so-called "melting pot" that came before it. Thirty years later, Toronto is probably the most multicultural city in the world, surprisingly even more so than NYC - and whites with a European ancestry now are a minority in the city. I know the shows creators are there because of the cost advantages but having the show in Toronto also seems somehow appropriate.

“so there are fewer opportunities for people like me, which is a great thing....” Listen to how brainwashed that sounds. People are so busy patting themselves on the back for being progressive when really racism and sexism are making a comeback. The only thing that has changed is the target. The US is roughly 75-80% white and 50% male afterall... is hiring a white male that far out of the question? They should hire the best person for the job, regardless of their background.

I think Robert Duncan McNeill spoke clearly and compellingly. I hope he and Roxann Dawson will find the time to return to direct Trek. (Maybe LeVar Burton, but those two have been more prolific as directors.) When it comes to a commitment to diversity, many others have already said what needs to be said. Many people’s understanding of equality does not include taking into account that folks in jobs like this (and in most jobs) don’t just get them because of some objective meter for talent. They get jobs because of who they know. Just like most of us Trekkies want to see former Trek directors direct Discovery. why? Because they are members of our circle, our family. It’s subjective. But if you want to create opportunity for more people you have to chose to change the paradigm. There are a plenty of talented, brilliant artists who seldom get the chance to shine because people like them were never thought of as “viable” candidates. And if you are never in the room when the decisions are made, you can never open those doors. That’s changing. In the long run, this will make the system more competitive in so many ways. But remember, these directors are the creame of the crop; they’re all extraordinary artists and each will bring something fresh to the table. If you want something different, then do something different.

I didn't say that that wasn't the case. Just that whole "I'm happy they're giving more jobs to women, diverse people, etc." is crap. Give jobs to talented people, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, skin color, age, etc. *That's* to be desired, nothing else. (And I didn't say that he doesn't mean it like that, it's just not coming across that way to me)

The show is filmed in Canada. Not the backward United States with the racist in the White House who was put there by racists. Canada’s own Prime Minister’s cabinet of ministers is gender and racially diverse. (And this would not be illegal in the US anyways, ever hear of affirmative action?) I know education is not the US’s strong suit but Canada, as you might it know, is your neighbour to the north... and you must have heard about affirmative action? With 11 out of 13 directors for Discovery season 1 being white men, how is giving jobs to people who are not white men “discrimination?” Don’t white men get enough unfair advantages given to them like cheat sheets and kiddie booster chairs in life? (White gay guys speaking here) And when white men stop getting even a little preferential special treatment they feel entitled to they then cry “discrimination!” Again, 11 out of 13 directors in season one were white men. Newsflash: 11 out of 13 humans are not white men... time to stop the discrimination against women and people of colour :)

Bingo! Took the words out of my mouth. Apart from the woman atop National Amusements herself (and she's the daughter of the owner, not that she doesn't do a good job), pretty much every executive at Viacom and CBS and every producer of the show itself is a white man. In fact, they just *fired* two show runners, one a woman, one a gay man. (The second gay male show runner fired, in fact.) So let's have a little virtue signalling, so long as it doesn't affect us...

That doesn’t mean quotas. Maybe they had other reasons for not hiring him. He also says they offered him a job in season one and he wasn’t available. “As for Discovery, eleven of the thirteen directors for the first season were white men.”

'Diversity' is not some boogeyman coming after white men. It's just breaking up the ol' boys club that has propped itself up at the expense of others. It's allowing talented individuals to have a chance, instead of white men hiring white men either because of blatant racism or sexism or just because it's all they know and they don't want to risk changing things. This change may seem imbalanced at first, but once more non-white or non-male people have their chance to establish themselves, then 'forced diversification' will become unnecessary and the playing field will be level.

Nobody says the hires aren't qualified, but did you read the article? Mr Robert Duncan McNeill says it himself that he couldn't direct an episode of Discovery because of diversity quotas. He seems to be okay with it, but there is absolutely a priority to get diverse or females people aboard, which can be considered as a quota even if they don't openly say it. Here is the excerpt: "Discovery does a limited number of episodes and a priority there is to get female and diverse directors, so there are fewer opportunities for people like me, which is a great thing."

I think Hollywood sees itself as being so progressive (and in some cases it is) but if the #metoo movement has proven anything, it demonstrates that it needs to catch up with the rest of N. American society with regards to equality and harassment. As Patrick Stewart said a few months back, sadly we all know what the term "casting couch" means, so if ST Discovery wants to help nudge along equality when it comes to Directors, then I am okay with it. I know some will say PC is out of control BUT IMHO, that is a cop out and a term that is often times inappropriately used - and for SOME, this is just such a case. One thing I will point out to us smug males here in N. America, white men only make up about 12-14 percent of the world's population. For a show that is supposed to depict the human race in an idealized future, I think they are trying to do a good job both in front of and now behind, the camera.

Seems to me that a problem with hiring to meet diversity quotas as opposed to hiring on talent and qualifications is that it hides any factors back down the line that might be skewing the talent pool in favour of one group. If the talent pool is skewed but the demographic of those hired looks fine, not only will the product suffer but the educational and socio-economic factors that skewed the talent pool in the first place will remain hidden and unchallenged.

It's a bit sad that diversity needs to be regulated <i>by decree</i>, so to speak. But at this point, I suppose it's a "necessary evil" needed in order to get people on board who maybe wouldn't have had a chance in the past. One step on the road towards a true "colourblind" (and "gender-blind") policy.</br> Still, why do I get the feeling that we (and by "we" I basically mean the whole Western World) had already been closer to that point. It's a gut feeling and I'm probably wrong – McNeill has been in the business for quite a while and he points out a present-day "shift". I guess it has something to do with those issues running rampant these days with a lot of <i>noise</i> sorrounding them – a whole lot of loud discord – and it all <i>seems</i> so unnecessary because anyone of a halfway progressive mindset would say: "Yeah, of course this woman/man of this colour or that colur can direct that show – I don't care as long as he/she does a good job".</br> And yet the truth is that you can hardly get rid of issues in the "background" if you don't kick them to the fore at some point...

I think he was just being honest, and I appreciate it in this era of being scared of telling your opinion otherwise you'd be labelled with some weird labels. Besides he didn't say anything too insulting, instead he appreciated the fact that there was more diversity going on. First impressions are important I agree, but don't you believe in the saying "do not judge a book by its cover"? The guy may look like he got out of a dive bar at 2.AM but he could also be a talented genius who gets the job done.

So you, as a consumer, would rather have an inferior product created by people hired for "diversity", than to have a high-quality product created by people hired for their merits? Here, have a little list of people we owe for Star Trek: Cinematography: Kepler, Lumiere, Melies. Science fiction: Verne, Wells, Gernsback. Television: Tesla, Edison, Marconi. Spaceflight: Von Braun, Tsiolkovsky, Oberth. Star Trek: Roddenberry, Coon, Justman. What do those people have in common? No, it's not their skin color, you racist. It's the fact they were geniuses. On the other hand, diversity hires don't tend to be geniuses. If they were, they wouldn't have to rely on diversity quotas to get hired. Case in point: check S.J. Clarkson's resume. Does it scream "genius" to you? There seems to be a general consensus these days that minorities don't have to prove anything. That they don't have to show any effort. That their minority status is somehow enough to qualify for anything. But, you know what? Von Braun wasn't hired because someone said "We need more Germans on our team." He first had to prove himself, and THEN he was hired - not because of his minority status, but despite it. Also, why advertise your bedroom habits to random strangers? Are you expecting to get hired, too? :-P

"Duncan McNeil is wrong when he celebrates fewer (great stuff that he didn’t say “less” lol) opportunities for him (i.e. the white man). Ideally, there should be more opportunities for everyone..." That's a very nice and happy thought, but by applying simple 3rd grade math, there are simply going to be less opportunities for the lesser talented levels of white men working in Hollywood. And this is needed, and is a good thing, even though its going to cost some their jobs. As an example, those fictional kind of lovable "white dude" losers from the show Entourage, who based all of their "work" on just paling around to get guy-to-guy connections, would be laughed out of much of Hollywood today. The times are changing. Let's please be direct be honest about it and not naively claim that "everyone" will get more opportunities. We are entering a much needed transition period to a more diverse work force in Hollywood, and there will obviously be some losers, especially in the near term. No need to pretend otherwise. And those lesser talents probably should be weeded out.

          Offer - Are You Cut Out to be a Mystic Entrepreneur? 7 Telltale Signs - Phoenix      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Once you have decided to embark on your entrepreneurial journey, it is very important to understand what type of an entrepreneur are you. There are entrepreneurs who are motivated by money, profit and material success and there are those who are inspired by a greater cause. They tend to incorporate divine love, passion, creativity, spirituality and wisdom in their daily, routine work, no matter how mundane it is to be. They are different from other types of entrepreneurs and stand in their own league and are called spiritual ormystic entrepreneurs. Understanding your distinct nature and evolving your practice accordingly help you come up with a brand and service that is authentic, grounded, and result-oriented. This kind of soul searching would help you understand how your service is distinct from the competition, what you are offering and how much it is worth, who your ideal clients are, and how you can help them out. Being a spiritual entrepreneur is so very different from being any other type of an entrepreneur. It is about creating a unique spiritual and mystical service that resonates with your faith, vision and inner values and is designed to help and support others. Here are 7 telltale signs of a mystic or spiritual entrepreneur:A Deeper Interest in Matters of the Heart, Mind, Emotions and Soul Mystic entrepreneurs are more spirit and soul conscious. They are grounded and secure in their mysticism and spirituality and are not at odds with them. They believe in improving the mind, mind sciences, mental and spiritual health, self-help, self-improvement, etc. They are constantly looking for ways to bring emotional health, wellness, healing, and peace to their lives and that of their loved ones. They are into reiki, yoga, meditation and Feng Shui and meditate a lot.A Growth-Oriented MindsetEntrepreneurs with a mystic bent are naturally curious and restless by nature. They are intrigued by the mysteries of the Universe and their own souls. They have a strong desire to invest in themselves that is, their own learning and refinement. They are not afraid to learn, unlearn and relearn, go into unknown directions within to keep evolving at a soul conscious level. They seek to work with masters, seers and master trainers and learn from them and commit a lot of time to self-improvement activities. They are looking for inner fulfillment and try to look for meaning and joy in things.A Larger than Life VisionMystical beings feel that they are here on Earth not by accident but to fulfill a greater and nobler purpose. They are not motivated by financial figures and goals and amassing material things. They have a noble and grand vision which encompasses not their own selves but the greater good of the world at large. They are deeply concerned about issues facing their community as well as humanity and the world at large. They not only try to raise the awareness of others but also try to find practical solutions for problems. They may not have oodles of money but still try to commit their time, and invest their money and resources into philanthropic causes.A Degree of IntuitionEntrepreneurs with mystic abilities are highly sensitive and intuitive. They have an uncanny insight and have a way of knowing hidden or unrealized things about others without even being told. They can have a look at a person and his or her workings and can guess the story running in the background. They often have insightful and fantastic revelations about others. They look for hidden meaning and connection between seemingly disjointed things.Appreciation for Solitude as well as CompanyEntrepreneurs with a mystical mindset are introverts. They prefer to be in like-minded, inspiring company or they prefer flying solo. They like to reconnect with themselves, their own spirit and soul in solitude. They are drawn to nature walks, meditation, long baths or spas. They shun the fast-paced party life but are drawn to deep, invigorating, stimulating conversations, and retreats of the like-minded ones.Trustable GuidesDue to their intuitive, mystic abilities, these special breed of entrepreneurs are often recipients of long distance calls and lengthy emails from their friends and loved ones. Why? It is because they are trusted and relied upon by their friends not as a shoulder to cry on, but as trustworthy allies and advisors. They are sought by their friends for guidance and for solid advice. Their friends, family members, and loyal clients hesitate and resist making critical decisions without consulting them first and the mystic entrepreneurs take their trust and faith very seriously and help them come up with the best solutions to their problems.A Higher Degree of EmpathyMystic entrepreneurs have a higher degree of empathy for others and are moved by their pain and sufferings. The minute they hear that a friend or loved one is in some kind of trouble, they are moved to action. They try to find means and ways to ease their loved ones’ pain and troubles. They are often concerned about not just the physical but the emotional and spiritual wellbeing of others. They not only extend comfort and a shoulder to cry on but also spring to action and try to find practical solutions. As coaches and trainers, mystic entrepreneursare in a unique position to help others in overcoming their mental blocks, their personal issues through personalized, one on one training and guidance. They offer others a chance to transform their bodies, minds and lives, and move to a higher and more evolved soul conscious level. They help others manifest their desires and ideals through personalized guidance.If you can identify with these traits then you are clearly a mystical or spiritual entrepreneur or one in the making and would do well in a business that deals with these aspects. More and more people are awakening to the idea that it is possible to evolve a successful and yet profitable mystical or spiritual business on the basis of a divine vision and mission. This is why mystics and spiritualists are taking their ideas and goals from the hobbyist closet and turning them into deeply meaningful and result-oriented business ventures. By aligning with the law of natural and universal abundance, they are bringing in more and more positive energy into the world for the humanity at large.As a Mystic Wealth Mentor and spiritual teacher, I teach practical manifestation strategies and mystical principles that help my clients bridge their spirituality and mysticism with practicality.

          Offer - Are You Cut Out to be a Mystic Entrepreneur? 7 Telltale Signs - Phoenix      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Once you have decided to embark on your entrepreneurial journey, it is very important to understand what type of an entrepreneur are you. There are entrepreneurs who are motivated by money, profit and material success and there are those who are inspired by a greater cause. They tend to incorporate divine love, passion, creativity, spirituality and wisdom in their daily, routine work, no matter how mundane it is to be. They are different from other types of entrepreneurs and stand in their own league and are called spiritual ormystic entrepreneurs. Understanding your distinct nature and evolving your practice accordingly help you come up with a brand and service that is authentic, grounded, and result-oriented. This kind of soul searching would help you understand how your service is distinct from the competition, what you are offering and how much it is worth, who your ideal clients are, and how you can help them out. Being a spiritual entrepreneur is so very different from being any other type of an entrepreneur. It is about creating a unique spiritual and mystical service that resonates with your faith, vision and inner values and is designed to help and support others. Here are 7 telltale signs of a mystic or spiritual entrepreneur:A Deeper Interest in Matters of the Heart, Mind, Emotions and Soul Mystic entrepreneurs are more spirit and soul conscious. They are grounded and secure in their mysticism and spirituality and are not at odds with them. They believe in improving the mind, mind sciences, mental and spiritual health, self-help, self-improvement, etc. They are constantly looking for ways to bring emotional health, wellness, healing, and peace to their lives and that of their loved ones. They are into reiki, yoga, meditation and Feng Shui and meditate a lot.A Growth-Oriented MindsetEntrepreneurs with a mystic bent are naturally curious and restless by nature. They are intrigued by the mysteries of the Universe and their own souls. They have a strong desire to invest in themselves that is, their own learning and refinement. They are not afraid to learn, unlearn and relearn, go into unknown directions within to keep evolving at a soul conscious level. They seek to work with masters, seers and master trainers and learn from them and commit a lot of time to self-improvement activities. They are looking for inner fulfillment and try to look for meaning and joy in things.A Larger than Life VisionMystical beings feel that they are here on Earth not by accident but to fulfill a greater and nobler purpose. They are not motivated by financial figures and goals and amassing material things. They have a noble and grand vision which encompasses not their own selves but the greater good of the world at large. They are deeply concerned about issues facing their community as well as humanity and the world at large. They not only try to raise the awareness of others but also try to find practical solutions for problems. They may not have oodles of money but still try to commit their time, and invest their money and resources into philanthropic causes.A Degree of IntuitionEntrepreneurs with mystic abilities are highly sensitive and intuitive. They have an uncanny insight and have a way of knowing hidden or unrealized things about others without even being told. They can have a look at a person and his or her workings and can guess the story running in the background. They often have insightful and fantastic revelations about others. They look for hidden meaning and connection between seemingly disjointed things.Appreciation for Solitude as well as CompanyEntrepreneurs with a mystical mindset are introverts. They prefer to be in like-minded, inspiring company or they prefer flying solo. They like to reconnect with themselves, their own spirit and soul in solitude. They are drawn to nature walks, meditation, long baths or spas. They shun the fast-paced party life but are drawn to deep, invigorating, stimulating conversations, and retreats of the like-minded ones.Trustable GuidesDue to their intuitive, mystic abilities, these special breed of entrepreneurs are often recipients of long distance calls and lengthy emails from their friends and loved ones. Why? It is because they are trusted and relied upon by their friends not as a shoulder to cry on, but as trustworthy allies and advisors. They are sought by their friends for guidance and for solid advice. Their friends, family members, and loyal clients hesitate and resist making critical decisions without consulting them first and the mystic entrepreneurs take their trust and faith very seriously and help them come up with the best solutions to their problems.A Higher Degree of EmpathyMystic entrepreneurs have a higher degree of empathy for others and are moved by their pain and sufferings. The minute they hear that a friend or loved one is in some kind of trouble, they are moved to action. They try to find means and ways to ease their loved ones’ pain and troubles. They are often concerned about not just the physical but the emotional and spiritual wellbeing of others. They not only extend comfort and a shoulder to cry on but also spring to action and try to find practical solutions. As coaches and trainers, mystic entrepreneursare in a unique position to help others in overcoming their mental blocks, their personal issues through personalized, one on one training and guidance. They offer others a chance to transform their bodies, minds and lives, and move to a higher and more evolved soul conscious level. They help others manifest their desires and ideals through personalized guidance.If you can identify with these traits then you are clearly a mystical or spiritual entrepreneur or one in the making and would do well in a business that deals with these aspects. More and more people are awakening to the idea that it is possible to evolve a successful and yet profitable mystical or spiritual business on the basis of a divine vision and mission. This is why mystics and spiritualists are taking their ideas and goals from the hobbyist closet and turning them into deeply meaningful and result-oriented business ventures. By aligning with the law of natural and universal abundance, they are bringing in more and more positive energy into the world for the humanity at large.As a Mystic Wealth Mentor and spiritual teacher, I teach practical manifestation strategies and mystical principles that help my clients bridge their spirituality and mysticism with practicality. You too can have a one-on-one session with me to determine whether we fit in together. Go to https://lucimcmonagle.youcanbook.me/ and book a discovery session.Moreover, I also have a special offer, a chance to work with me in a year-long exclusive program that can help you tap into your deepest mystical gifts and unlock the spiritual mysteries of your soul, so that your business and you can transcend to a whole new level of financial and spiritual success.

          Judge Rejects CFPB's Request To Unseal Ocwen's Responses At Discovery Phase      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - After holding that there is no common-law right of access to discovery, a Florida federal judge on June 25 denied a request by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to unseal discovery materials submitted by loan servicers in a lawsuit in which the CFPB alleges that the servicers violated federal consumer financial protection laws in relation to the servicing of loans (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau v. Ocwen Financial Corporation, et al., No. 9:17-CV-80495, S.D. Fla., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 105620).

PHILADELPHIA - The city of Philadelphia on June 29 filed its opposition to a bank's motion to compel discovery related to loans allegedly issued using discriminatory lending practices targeted at the city's African-American and Latino borrowers, arguing that the information sought relates to a pre-complaint analysis by non-testifying experts that lacks merit and is irrelevant (Philadelphia v. Wells Fargo & Co., et al., No. 17-2203, E.D. Pa.).

          Driftwood Theatre Announces New Cast Member      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Driftwood Theatre is pleased to announce that Sochi Fried is joining the company of Rosalynde (or As You Like It) for the summer 2018 Bard's Bus Tour. Sochi Fried will be taking the role of Rosalynde.

Sochi Fried's selected credits include Measure for Measure (Shakespeare Bash'd), Crossing Delancey (The ALLIANCE THEATRE, Georgia), and Blood Weddings (Modern Times Stage Company/ Aluna Theatre). Rosalynde will be her Driftwood debut.

Set in 1918, Rosalynde takes place when Canadian women were finally granted the right to vote in federal elections. When circumstances force Rosalynde, played by Sochi Fried, from her home in the city, she flees into the unknown wilds of the forest where she sets out on a journey of identity, self-discovery and love - learning that to carve her own path, she needs to break the rules.

Directed by D. Jeremy Smith, the Rosalynde ensemble includes Geoffrey Armour (Festival Players) as Touchstone, Caroline Gillis (Innocence Lost) as Jacques, Ximena Huizi (Theatre Inamorata) as Celia, Megan Miles (Hart House Theatre) as Charles, Phebe, and Audrey, Ngabo Nabea (Classical Theatre Project) as Orlando, Derek Kwan (Mr. Shi and His Lover) as Oliver, and Silvius, and Eric Woolfe (Eldritch Theatre) as Duke Frederick, Duke Senior, and Corin.

Rosalynde incorporates live music, physical performance, and puppetry designed by production designer Sheree Tams and puppeteer and cast member Eric Woolfe. The creative team also includes musical director/composer Tom Lillington, lighting designer Michael Brunet, dramaturge Myekah Payne, and stage manager Kelsey Rae.

It can also help policy makers to design systems which empower cooperation among the public.

Legislators representing districts where privately contracted companies manage or own detention facilities, meanwhile, are more likely to introduce anti-immigrant bills by a factor of three.

Vizitează pagina OPEN CALL Un-hidden Bucharest 2017 pentru a avea o viziune despre cum se va desfășura noul apel deschis pentru o intervenție artistică în spațiul public. Anul trecut, alături de CNDB, partenerii proiectului, am invitat artiștii să reinterpreteze fațada Sălii Omnia, viitoarea casă a Centrului Național al Dansului București. Câștigătoarea apelului, Skinny Bunny, a pictat pe geamurile fostei săli de conferințe a senatului RPR, personaje sugestive pentru istoria și viitorul acestei clădiri dezafectate emoțional.
Noul apel deschis pornește în căutarea unui obiect sau personaj urban remarcabil. Premiul constă în realizarea și promovarea propunerii în cadrul proiectului, cu un buget de producție și o remunerație financiară. Ți-ai imaginat deja cum ar arăta lucrarea ta?

          Offer - Are You Cut Out to be a Mystic Entrepreneur? 7 Telltale Signs - Phoenix      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Once you have decided to embark on your entrepreneurial journey, it is very important to understand what type of an entrepreneur are you. There are entrepreneurs who are motivated by money, profit and material success and there are those who are inspired by a greater cause. They tend to incorporate divine love, passion, creativity, spirituality and wisdom in their daily, routine work, no matter how mundane it is to be. They are different from other types of entrepreneurs and stand in their own league and are called spiritual ormystic entrepreneurs. Understanding your distinct nature and evolving your practice accordingly help you come up with a brand and service that is authentic, grounded, and result-oriented. This kind of soul searching would help you understand how your service is distinct from the competition, what you are offering and how much it is worth, who your ideal clients are, and how you can help them out. Being a spiritual entrepreneur is so very different from being any other type of an entrepreneur. It is about creating a unique spiritual and mystical service that resonates with your faith, vision and inner values and is designed to help and support others. Here are 7 telltale signs of a mystic or spiritual entrepreneur:A Deeper Interest in Matters of the Heart, Mind, Emotions and Soul Mystic entrepreneurs are more spirit and soul conscious. They are grounded and secure in their mysticism and spirituality and are not at odds with them. They believe in improving the mind, mind sciences, mental and spiritual health, self-help, self-improvement, etc. They are constantly looking for ways to bring emotional health, wellness, healing, and peace to their lives and that of their loved ones. They are into reiki, yoga, meditation and Feng Shui and meditate a lot.A Growth-Oriented MindsetEntrepreneurs with a mystic bent are naturally curious and restless by nature. They are intrigued by the mysteries of the Universe and their own souls. They have a strong desire to invest in themselves that is, their own learning and refinement. They are not afraid to learn, unlearn and relearn, go into unknown directions within to keep evolving at a soul conscious level. They seek to work with masters, seers and master trainers and learn from them and commit a lot of time to self-improvement activities. They are looking for inner fulfillment and try to look for meaning and joy in things.A Larger than Life VisionMystical beings feel that they are here on Earth not by accident but to fulfill a greater and nobler purpose. They are not motivated by financial figures and goals and amassing material things. They have a noble and grand vision which encompasses not their own selves but the greater good of the world at large. They are deeply concerned about issues facing their community as well as humanity and the world at large. They not only try to raise the awareness of others but also try to find practical solutions for problems. They may not have oodles of money but still try to commit their time, and invest their money and resources into philanthropic causes.A Degree of IntuitionEntrepreneurs with mystic abilities are highly sensitive and intuitive. They have an uncanny insight and have a way of knowing hidden or unrealized things about others without even being told. They can have a look at a person and his or her workings and can guess the story running in the background. They often have insightful and fantastic revelations about others. They look for hidden meaning and connection between seemingly disjointed things.Appreciation for Solitude as well as CompanyEntrepreneurs with a mystical mindset are introverts. They prefer to be in like-minded, inspiring company or they prefer flying solo. They like to reconnect with themselves, their own spirit and soul in solitude. They are drawn to nature walks, meditation, long baths or spas. They shun the fast-paced party life but are drawn to deep, invigorating, stimulating conversations, and retreats of the like-minded ones.Trustable GuidesDue to their intuitive, mystic abilities, these special breed of entrepreneurs are often recipients of long distance calls and lengthy emails from their friends and loved ones. Why? It is because they are trusted and relied upon by their friends not as a shoulder to cry on, but as trustworthy allies and advisors. They are sought by their friends for guidance and for solid advice. Their friends, family members, and loyal clients hesitate and resist making critical decisions without consulting them first and the mystic entrepreneurs take their trust and faith very seriously and help them come up with the best solutions to their problems.A Higher Degree of EmpathyMystic entrepreneurs have a higher degree of empathy for others and are moved by their pain and sufferings. The minute they hear that a friend or loved one is in some kind of trouble, they are moved to action. They try to find means and ways to ease their loved ones’ pain and troubles. They are often concerned about not just the physical but the emotional and spiritual wellbeing of others. They not only extend comfort and a shoulder to cry on but also spring to action and try to find practical solutions. As coaches and trainers, mystic entrepreneursare in a unique position to help others in overcoming their mental blocks, their personal issues through personalized, one on one training and guidance. They offer others a chance to transform their bodies, minds and lives, and move to a higher and more evolved soul conscious level. They help others manifest their desires and ideals through personalized guidance.If you can identify with these traits then you are clearly a mystical or spiritual entrepreneur or one in the making and would do well in a business that deals with these aspects. More and more people are awakening to the idea that it is possible to evolve a successful and yet profitable mystical or spiritual business on the basis of a divine vision and mission. This is why mystics and spiritualists are taking their ideas and goals from the hobbyist closet and turning them into deeply meaningful and result-oriented business ventures. By aligning with the law of natural and universal abundance, they are bringing in more and more positive energy into the world for the humanity at large.As a Mystic Wealth Mentor and spiritual teacher, I teach practical manifestation strategies and mystical principles that help my clients bridge their spirituality and mysticism with practicality. You too can have a one-on-one session with me to determine whether we fit in together. Go to https://lucimcmonagle.youcanbook.me/ and book a discovery session.Moreover, I also have a special offer, a chance to work with me in a year-long exclusive program that can help you tap into your deepest mystical gifts and unlock the spiritual mysteries of your soul, so that your business and you can transcend to a whole new level of financial and spiritual success.

          5 Artificial Intelligence Business Lessons From The Masters | AI & Big Data - Forbes Now      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The big data and analytics market continues to morph as Artificial Intelligence (AI) fields, such as machine learning and deep learning, provide new ways to generate business insights, as Forbes Now reports. 
 
 
O’Reillys recent set of Strata Data conferences showcased how AI technologies are changing what companies can do with data across a wide range of industries. Here are four themes from Strata Data that universally apply across various industries and company sizes.

1. Both humans and machines are needed to deliver the best result.

Pinterest's VP of Engineering, Li Wan, shared the challenges and opportunities of creating a visual discovery engine. Wan described the challenges with naming an image while also understanding what’s in it and the style behind the image. Correctly defining image attributes is crucial for delivering a successful user experience. For example, a living room has multiple items in it. The company uses computer vision technology to break down the image, understand the objects within the picture and recommend similar things for you to consider.

Since there are 100 billion pins in the database, Pinterest can’t rank every pin for every user in real time. To accomplish this herculean feat, Pinterest uses a graph-based recommendation engine that filters the candidate recommendations for every user. It uses machine models to predict the engagement level of a Pinterest user to a pin and the relevance of pin for a user. It sounds like a simple classification problem, but the system not only has to detect an item, such as a chair, within millions of images. Additionally, the AI system has to understand the style of the object, requiring Pinterest to create feature vectors to help recommend an image based on a user’s style. Where does the human element come in? Data specialists clean, validate and label the data.

From Winter Oak Press

bringing down the fascist machine

orpic

“We have realized that a detachment of man from Nature, from the Life-Whole, leads to his annihilation… No longer does man alone stand in the centerpoint of thinking, but rather Life as a Whole does, as it reveals itself in all living things on earth”.

On the face of it, this statement sounds rather good. It’s the sort of thing we send out on our Winter Oak “Quote for the Day” tweets.

But in this instance, we definitely won’t be doing that. Why? Because it comes from a 1934 book called Biological Will: Means and Goals of Biological Work in the New Reich by Ernst Lehmann, a leading Nazi biologist. (1)

The occasional similarity in vocabulary or rhetoric between radical eco-anarchist thought and a certain strand of Nazi ideology has long provided a source of ammunition for enemies of radical green thinking.

Sometimes these attacks amount to little more than laughable right-wing propaganda, as with a 2018 item (2) on the Encounter Books website focusing on the “totalitarian roots” of the green movement as a whole and, in particular, of wind power.

Others are taken a lot more seriously when they warn that a radical political philosophy which is too nature-based inevitably risks carrying us down into a dark underworld of proto-fascist ideology.

While Murray Bookchin was no doubt right to take elements of the American deep ecology movement to task for not fully recognising the social roots behind ecological problems, the rhetoric he deployed, condemning what he regarded as “ecofascism”, has ultimately only increased the perceived Nazi contamination of radical green thinking in general.

Fellow social ecologists Janet Biehl and Peter Staudenmaier carried on his approach with great enthusiasm. In Ecofascism: Lessons from the German Experience, they wrote: “The National Socialist ‘religion of nature,’ as one historian has described it, was a volatile admixture of primeval teutonic nature mysticism, pseudo-scientific ecology, irrationalist anti-humanism, and a mythology of racial salvation through a return to the land. Its predominant themes were ‘natural order,’ organicist holism and denigration of humanity: Such arguments have a chilling currency within contemporary ecological discourse”. (3)

earthfirst

More recently, Alexander Reid Ross, a one-time editor of Earth First! Journal, has identified parts of the EF! network, as well as anarchists and left-wingers generally, as being affected by what he terms ideological “fascist creep”. (4)

There are plenty of other examples out there, plus, it should be added, actual attempts by sections of the far right to hijack environmental positions and language for their own ends. (5)

All of this has, of course, not been without an impact on the thinking of the broader environmental movement.

Sensitive to comparison with Nazi policies, Germany’s Green Party has long gone out of its way to stress its rupture from this past.

For instance in a 1987 interview with the Oxford journal Green Line, party representative Jakob von Uexküll, grandson and namesake of an archconservative behavioural biologist, said that the Greens in Germany had made a conscious decision to seek out allies in minority groups because critics had pointed out that ecological-holistic statements had historically been made by Nazi and Fascist governments. (6)

While forging alliances with minority groups is itself a positive move, the problem lies in the way that ecologists with a social critique find it safer to tack their environmentalism on to an already-existing package of left-liberal thought rather than to source it from what is seen as an entirely discredited green tradition.

bramwell book

Historian Anna Bramwell wrote as long ago as 1994 that since the Second World War “any talk of holism, or a love of nature that adduced certain values from nature or strove to adapt humanity to those values, was suspect” (7) – and things certainly haven’t improved since then.

We can testify to this ourselves. An article published in 2017 by Winter Oak, Envisioning a Post-Western World, proposing an exit from industrial capitalist ways of living and thinking, was only reposted by the radical American website antidote zine after much discussion and with a disclaimer that some of the arguments we put forward were “right on the knife’s edge”. (8)

The knife in question turned out to be the one being dramatically waved around by Reid Ross, which seems to have successfully intimidated a large part of the anti-capitalist movement in the US, even if some are still brave enough to publish “suspect” ideas in spite of his efforts.

But what is the truth behind this “Nazi” smear against organic deep green ideology? Is it justified? Is it something that should influence the way we collectively formulate our own vision of the world? If so, in what way?

To get to the roots of the matter, we will here be asking, and answering, the following questions:

1. What were the origins of this organic thinking?
2. To what extent was this thinking part of Nazi theory and practice?
3. Are there other possible manifestations of organic ideology?
4. What political ideology is the best fit with an organic approach?
5. Is organic radicalism the only target of the contemporary Nazi smear?
6. What is the relationship between anti-capitalism and anti-semitism?
7. So what, do we conclude, is the smear all about?
8. Why do we care so much about this issue?
9. What would we like to see happen next?
tree and roots2

1. What were the origins of this organic thinking?

By organic thinking, we mean a vision which regards human societies, as well as the environment, as being essentially alive and of consisting of countless subtle interactions and collectivities which can never fully be described because of their rich complexity.

It regards human beings as an extension of nature. It is a holistic approach, because it understands that everything is connected, everything is ultimately one.

A holistic and nature-based view of the world was the starting point of all human cultures and inspires the indigenous spiritualities of North and South America, of Australia and Africa, and, yes, even of Europe.

It was the foundation stone on which were built the metaphysics of Chuang Tsu, Plotinus and Paracelsus. It remains a widely-shared, instinctive, “common sense” view of the world which has never been completely erased from the human spirit.

The coming of the Industrial Revolution sparked a reaction, in which some people actively sought out and revitalised these old ideas. This was not so much an intellectual movement as an instinctive response to cultural, social and environmental danger.

As Vivianne Crowley writes: “From the late eighteenth century onwards, rapid industrialization and the rape of Europe’s natural scenery and resources caused many people to feel that the time was out of joint; that common sense was being sacrificed to material progress with potentially disastrous results”. (9)

The organic thinking on which we are focusing here is this version, the one that emerged in reaction to the trauma of industrialisation, of Western civilization’s drift away from that original wisdom and towards the cold and mechanical philosophies of the modern era.

In a sense it could be termed Organic Thinking II, because it included a conscious defence of Organic Thinking I in the face of the sterile dogmas of capitalist modernity.
Everywhere affected by industrialisation saw the emergence of anti-industrial currents of thought.

The English-speaking world had the likes of William Blake (1757-1827), William Wordsworth (1770-1850), Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), John Ruskin (1819-1900), William Morris (1834-1896) and Richard Jefferies (1848-1887).

Morris spoke for many others when he admitted in 1894, two years before he died: “Apart from the desire to produce beautiful things, the leading passion of my life has been and is hatred of modern civilization”. (10)

France had its own tradition, which flowed from the anti-industrialism of the eighteenth-century philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) into the twentieth-century anti-productivism of Jacques Ellul (1912-1994) and Bernard Charbonneau (1910-1996) as well as the powerful critique of modernity voiced by George Bernanos (1888-1948), who declared: “The Civilization of the Machines is the civilization of quantity opposed to that of quality”. (11)

German-speaking Europe had a particularly strong concept of Naturphilosophie, intertwined with Romanticism, which could draw on the wisdom of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), Novalis (1772-1801), Friedrich Hölderlin (1775-1854) and Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling (1775-1854).

In her book Reenchanted Science: Holism in German Culture from Wilhelm II to Hitler, Anne Harrington traces the evolution of one thread of this thinking from nineteenth-century scientists who developed holistic approaches in their own specific fields and then, as good holists, saw that there was also a bigger picture.

“From Berlin to Prague to Vienna to Zurich, these scientists began to mingle their voices with those of other kinds of cultural critics, would-be reformers, and crisis-mongers. Those other voices from outside the sciences also typically used the oppositional imagery of machine and wholeness in order to articulate what they believed had gone wrong in politics, the community and individual existence – and to identify roads to renewal. That imagery in turn had energetic links to other, overlapping political and societal oppositions of the time: Gemeinschaft (community) versus Gesellschaft (society), an opposition made famous by the nineteenth-century sociologist Ferdinand Tönnies; (German) Kultur versus (French) Zivilization; Life and Soul versus Mind and Reason, a squaring-off associated with such ‘life philosophers’ as Ludwig Klages”. (12)

The starting point of Organic Thinking II was opposition to The Machine and all the damage it was doing to human culture and well-being, as well as to the natural world.

The Machine, which spawned the ugly coke furnaces and iron and steel factories of the Ruhr valley, powered the militarism of Otto von Bismarck, Chancellor of the German Empire between 1871 and 1890.

There was a process of extraordinarily rapid industrialization at the end of the nineteenth century that, notes Harrington, had left many feeling “uprooted and aesthetically revolted”. (13)

And The Machine also reached inside people’s heads, breaking down older ways of thinking and remodelling minds according to the demands of the new industrial civilization.

A fragmentation of understanding was identified by critics of the modern age. Like the living communities replaced by urban dormitories for the factory wage-slaves, everything seemed to be broken down and torn apart.

In the sciences, research was increasingly specialist and narrow, geared towards utilitarian pragmatism rather than a quest for knowledge.

The success of individuals or nations was judged in terms of material wealth, of productivity, rather than in terms of inner integrity or happiness.

A sense of belonging to the land, to the past, to a continuum, was rased by the brutal demands of so-called progress.

An individual’s sense of self was swept away by the depersonalised speed and fury of steam-powered living and, at the same time, any sense of belonging to humanity as a whole was denied by the nationalistic fervour of industrial and imperial rivalry with other Europeans and officially-encouraged contempt for the “inferior” and “backward” peoples of the non-industrialised world.

The realm of offices, factories, newspapers and trains forced people into a state of existence where they seemed to exist purely in their own heads, on the surface of being, and were as cut off from their own bodies, their own physical reality, as they were from the natural world from which they had been separated for the first time in a million years of human history.

Organic Thinking II sought to counter that fragmentation, that separation, on every level, and to reinstate a sense of interconnecting wholeness.

Body and soul were not regarded as separate, but as two aspects of one and the same entity. Likewise with individuals and society – not industrial-capitalist society, of course, but the natural and organic one put forward as a healthy alternative.

Collective groups of people were described as living organisms, themselves forming part of even greater living organisms. Humanity itself was one living entity and part of the living natural world.

None of this was new. All of this had already been known by Organic Thinking I. But the difference here was that the new embrace of this holism was also a pro-active call for the realisation and return of that holism.

Organic Thinking II was a demand for change, for the overturning of shallow, fragmented, dehumanising, nature-destroying industrial society and for the rediscovery of authenticity, community, belonging and wholeness.

2. To what extent was this thinking part of Nazi theory and practice?

There is no doubt that Nazi rhetoric and ideology was partly shaped by the organic thinking that was such an influential counter-current in German-speaking Europe at the start of the twentieth century.

The Nazis painted themselves as being on a mission to put things to rights, to bring about a “great revolution in values”, to restore healthy attitudes towards nature.nazis nature

Nazi language reflected the idea that human life was, and should be, interlaced with nature. Notes Nina Lyon: “All manner of lengthy compound nouns abstracting this ideal prospered: Erdebundenkeit, the binding or oneness with the earth; Volksboden, the connection of the people with the soil; Bodenständigkeit, or the nature by which life was shaped by earthly forces”. (14)

Nazi professor Friederich Sander named “the longing for wholeness” as one of the two basic motives behind the movement. He added: “Present-day German psychology and the National Socialistic world view are both oriented towards the same goal: the vanquishing of atomistic and mechanistic forms of thought: vanquishing through organic thinking, in the structure of völkisch life here, in the researching of psychological reality there”. (15)

Lehmann, cited at the beginning of this article, wrote a book, Biology in the Present Life, which included chapters on “individual wholeness”, “transindividual wholeness”, “the cosmos of life” and “völkische wholeness”.

He argued: “This striving for connectedness with all of life, indeed with Nature in general into which we are born – that, so far as I can see, is the deepest purpose and true essence of National Socialistic thinking”. (16)

This holistic tendency even reached down to a practical level. The Nazis promoted healthy eating and wholemeal bread. They were all in favour of homeopathy, herbalism and other natural therapies. There was a herbal plantation at Dachau concentration camp.

It is the jarring note of that last sentence that reminds us that there was something not quite right about the Nazi love affair with the organic ideal.

In fact, the closer you look, the more it becomes apparent that the Nazi version of organic thinking amounted to a distortion so severe as to render it philosophically unrecognisable. They used holistic and organic thought merely as “a fund of metaphors” (17) with which to present and justify their own totalitarian ideology.

Adolf Hitler himself, for instance, wrote in Mein Kampf that to replace the “dead mechanism” of the liberal state “there must be formed a living organism with the exclusive aim of serving a higher idea”. (18)

It is clearly nonsense to speak of a living organism being “formed”, as any real follower of organic thinking would immediately understand. A living organism could be freed from certain restraints, or even revived, but not formed by the machineries of political will.

Hitler is in fact talking about the Nazi state – centrally controlled and ruthlessly hierarchical – to which he is trying to lend an aura of natural authenticity by describing it as an organism in the language popular at the time.

He – and his followers – completely undermined Tönnies’ distinction between organic, bottom-up, community (Gemeinschaft) and artificial, top-down, modern society (Gesellschaft) by pretending that the Nazi Gesellschaft was really a kind of Gemeinschaft. The state and the Führer somehow magically represented the authentic will of the German people.

This notion of the state as organism had already been developed by the right wing of the organic movement, but in Nazi dogma it took on whole new proportions, because the idea of total power resting in the hands of the state was so central to their ideology.

Zeev Sternhell remarks: “Totalitarianism is the very essence of fascism, and fascism is without question the purest example of a totalitarian ideology. Setting out as it did to create a new civilization, a new type of human being and a totally new way of life, fascism could not conceive of any sphere of human activity remaining immune from intervention by the State”. (19)

The Nazi obsession with order imposed from above, with the absolute rule of the central state, is the opposite of an authentically organic vision.

As the anarcho-syndicalist Rudolf Rocker wrote: “Dictatorship is the negation of organic development, of natural building from below upwards”. (20)

A further corruption of the organic principle came from what Harrington describes as “the ‘racializing’ of holism’s struggle against mechanism” (21)

The right-wing generation before the Nazis, inspired by Houston Stewart Chamberlain and others, had already formulated the concept of “race”, which broke down humanity into distinct groups – as with the scientific tables and hierarchical classifications of minerals, vegetables and animals which were favoured at the time.

These race theorists, both in France and in Germany, took the philosophical idea of Gestalt, of underlying form, and twisted it into a justification for rigid racial typology. This then fed into a racially-based definition of the social organism which excluded those of whom they disapproved.

Sternhell explains their argument thus: “The nation is a living organism, and nationalism is therefore an ethic, comprising all the criteria of behaviour which the common interest calls for, and on which the will of the individual has no bearing. The duty both of the individual and of society is to find out what this ethic may be, yet only those can succeed who have a share in the ‘national consciousness,’ shaped over the course of the centuries: the Jews, as a foreign race, cannot enter upon this quest”. (22)

The anti-semitic thread incorporated into organic and holistic philosophy by right-wing nationalists became more pronounced in the 1920s. Germans projected on to Jews all the aspects of the German industrial capitalist system that they disliked most – Jews were demonized as being soulless, rootless and mercenary.

It was even said, or implied, explains Harrington, that the very capacity to think and see nature as a “whole” (the art of so-called Ganzheitsbetrachtung) was a trait peculiar to the “Indo-Germanic” mind, while the Jewish mind was fundamentally analytic, dissolutive, and materialistic. (23)

A 1935 article that appeared in the official medical journal of the Nazi party, Ziel und Weg, said the dissolute, sterile nature of Jewish thinking and Jewish science could lead only to “death” and contrasted this with the “simple, organic, creative” thinking of the “healthy non-Jew”, who “thinks in wholes”. (24)

The irony, of course, is that these racist and anti-semitic theories demonstrated that it was the Nazis themselves who were incapable of thinking holistically.

A holistic vision of the world understands the connection between all people, all creatures, all of nature, all of the cosmos and bases its vision on a sense of overall unity.

tree-earth-sun

An organic interpretation of the human species necessarily recognises the human species itself as an organism.

There may be lesser, shifting, “organisms” within that unity – and humanity may form part of larger natural and cosmic organisms – but the human species is undeniably the clearest instance of a biological unity between the individual and the bio-system of Earth as a whole.

A sense of this unity is integral to the organic, holistic world-view, and yet it is entirely absent from racist, anti-semitic, Nazi ideology.

The ideas of universalism and humanism were anathema to Nazism and regarded as cosmopolitan Jewish inventions designed to undermine the German sense of national and racial identity.

Their stunted sense of human solidarity was limited to those they defined as being their own people. Anyone outside of that Teutonic enclave was simply a non-person, an object.

Like certain postmodern thinkers of a later era, the Nazis denied the very existence of humankind, which, as Johann Chapoutot points out, “makes fraternity, feeling the suffering of the other, impossible as an emotion and invalidates it as a principle”. (25)

This was what lay behind the cold look in the eyes of the Nazi scientist famously described by Primo Levi in Survival in Auschwitz. He was looking at the Jewish prisoner as if he was observing a sea creature through “the glass window of an aquarium”. (26) There was no sense of human connection.

The anti-semitism displayed by the scientist here is not simply a prejudice, but a prejudice solidified into something self-justifying by a belief in the validity of the Nazis’ pseudo-scientific racial theorising.

Chapoutot says of this racism: “Slavs were presented as such strange beings that no communication of a human kind could be imagined with them. As for the Jews, they weren’t even considered as a foreign race, but rather as a phenomenon of a bacteriological or viral type”. (27)

Auschwitz

It was this capacity to regard fellow human beings as mere bacteria which enabled the Nazi state to embark on its inhuman policies of racial screening, sterilization, castration, experimentation and mass extermination.

Far from being inspired from a holistic view of the world, this outlook stems from the very fragmentation of which the proponents of organic thinking complained. This is mechanical thinking.

The Nazis’ approach is marked by a desire not to understand, to include and to connect, but to separate, to classify and to objectivise. As Hitler himself said: “Nazism is applied biology”. (28)

Rather than making a break with the cold, soulless, mechanical age, the Nazis were pushing it on to new levels of inhumanity.

As earlier as 1933, the psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich observed that fascism was not about Wholeness at all, but rather was the culmination of modern civilization’s mad worship of The Machine. It was possible because fascist man had let himself be transformed into a machine that was alienated from all authentic biological impulses and thus capable of ‘machine murder’. (29)

Much the same point was made in an article by Gerhard Portele in Gestalt Theory in 1979 when he argued that, despite the Nazis’ use of holistic language, the essence of their ideology lay in their neglect of the whole: “The Nazis with their calculating book-keeping rationality were trained in piecemeal thinking to an extreme degree and viewed people as cogs”. (30)

This fundamental incompatibility between organic, holistic thinking and Nazi ideology became increasingly apparent once their romantic rhetoric collided with the pragmatic realities of running the German industrial-capitalist state.

Hans Driesch
Hans Driesch

Hans Driesch (1867-1941), a biologist whose organic vision was defiantly internationalist, was among the first non-Jewish German professors to be forcibly retired after Hitler came to power in 1933 and in 1935 all public speaking and travel privileges were taken away from him.

After Germany’s defeat in World War II, a number of other organic theorists, such as the philosopher and historian of biology Adolf Meyer-Abich, came forward to report that they too had been actively persecuted by the Third Reich because of the perceived threats their holism posed for Nazi policies.

The Nazi faction which had twisted organic thinking into a racist and anti-semitic theory was itself displaced by an even more hardline group.

Harrington explains: “The second faction was made up of more pragmatic medical technocrats who wanted to use a hard-nosed form of Mendelian genetics, Darwinism, and racial biology as the basis for Nazi social policy and military strategy. This group had found a home for itself under the jurisdiction of Himmler’s SS and its daughter racial organizations, the Lebensborn and Ahnenerbe”. (31)

Human geneticist Karl Astel and his technocratic colleagues, outraged at the influence wielded by the likes of Karl Kötschua and his “nature therapy”, hatched a plot to discredit holistic views, which, he correctly concluded, flew completely in the face of narrow Nazi theories of racial supremacy.

In the same way as today’s anti-holistic propagandists try to blacken its name by linking it to the Nazis, these Nazis smeared holism by linking it to the Roman Catholic Church.

A 1936 article “exposing” this Catholic plot described “a skillfully organized and well-camouflaged attack on the entire exact sciences, including genetics and racial hygiene”.

Under the name of holism, it said, sinister Jesuits were using scientific dupes to spread a Catholic doctrine and undermine Nazi science. Their cunning ploy involved making “full intentional use of words that sound National Socialistic, like ‘wholeness’, ‘organic’, ‘biologic’, and so on” in order to spread confusion while appearing to be on-message. (32)

As a result of this propaganda, even Nazi exponents of organic theory were now hounded out of positions of influence. In 1938 Lehmann, previously quoted, was expelled from the Biologen Verband (Biologists’ Organization) which he had headed since 1931 and removed from his position as editor of Der Biologe.

A new organization within the SS was created, the Reichsbund für Biologie (Reich Division for Biology) which, under the direct supervision of the Ahnenerbe and ultimately of Himmler himself, took over the editorship of Der Biologe.

Nazism didn’t look much like a nature cult

An organic theory of life, with its emphasis on natural harmony, human interconnectedness and symbiotic relationship, stood in stark ideological contradiction to the aims of the Nazi regime, which wanted to build up Germany’s industrial and military power, build motorways, develop scientific racial engineering to strengthen “The Master Race”, explore the potential of nuclear physics, and ruthlessly eliminate “alien” human elements from German society.

The new SS-run version of Der Biologe made it clear that there was no room for the woolly, holistic views of men like Lehmann and the völkisch anthropologist Ernst Krieck, even if they were Nazis and anti-semites. “Biology is research about facts!” it barked in a 1939 editorial.

Facts! This is the language of the atomistic, mechanistic, industrial thinking of The Machine, the very language that the Nazis had claimed to be opposing, at the stage when they were wooing the German population.

From the 1890s onwards, there had been a cultural battle between two German tendencies. On one side stood the tradition of Goethe, of a Romantic desire for life, for soul, for wholeness. On the other side was the new Germany, obsessed with efficiency and Technik, the militarist “machine nation” of 1914.

While Nazism was clearly influenced on one level by the first, Romantic tradition, and happy to use that association to garner support from a German public despairing of capitalist modernity, it proved ultimately to belong firmly to the second.

It incarnated, in an exaggerated form, the thinking of the industrial capitalist Machine, for whom human beings are nothing but fodder. It was not simply a question of racism; even those accepted as German were expected to be “productive”, to serve the purposes of the Machine-State in some way. Non-performing, non-productive Germans (leistungsunfähige Wesen) and scroungers (Asoziale) were not deemed worthy of living in German society.

Because of the hideous crimes committed by the Nazi regime, there is today near-universal agreement that we do not like the Third Reich and its ideas.

nazi tanks

But we should be clear as to what it is that we don’t like. We don’t like the mass extermination. We don’t like the anti-semitism and racism. We don’t like the warmongering militarism. We don’t like the blind nationalism. We don’t like the police state. We don’t like the eugenics. We don’t like the propaganda and mass hysteria.

There were other elements present in Nazism which are not among these evils and which do not necessarily pave the way towards them.

Is wholemeal bread a bad thing because the Nazis said it was good? Are herbal plantations insidious because there was one at Dachau? Is all organic thinking suspect because a version of it was harnessed, and distorted, by some Nazi ideologues?

Continuing her discussion of the Nazis’ use of an organic and nature-based vocabulary (see above), Lyon, who describes herself as a Jewish writer, adds: “There is nothing intrinsically problematic about any of these three terms. Their adoption to make the argument that one race of people should be superior to others, because it stemmed from those values and that soil, was where it all went wrong…” (34)

3. Are there other possible manifestations of organic ideology?

As we have already noted in the last section, non-Nazi versions of organic ideology are not only possible, but existed in a very real form alongside the now-discredited right-wing racist variety.

Anne Harrington
Anne Harrington

Harrington correctly points out that it is useful to know something about the history of German holistic science, in order not to fall into the trap of thinking that any alternative to the prevailing mechanistic worldview is to be avoided because it somehow points inevitably towards fascism.

She adds: “It is important that we resist ‘discovering’ the outline of a terrible future in holism’s past or imagining that all holistic, vitalistic, or teleological views of nature are part of a larger ‘destruction of reason’ that can be tracked in some straight, degenerating line from the romantics to Hegel to Nietzsche to Hitler”. (35)

Sometimes these investigations might lead simply to the revelation that a particular scientist or thinker was not actually a Nazi. The biologist Jakob Von Uexküll, for instance, was certainly very conservative, politically, but was no white supremacist: he argued that all human groups must be respected in their distinctiveness, because all in the end are expressions of the same creative life energy. (36)

At other times, it goes a lot further than that and we see the enormous ideological potential in variants of the organic theme which point in a libertarian, humanist, internationalist, left-wing direction.

Driesch, for example, defended an ideal of cultural cosmopolitanism and rejected any idea that a nation-state could be seen as an organism. The only supra-personal collective organism he was prepared to consider was the concept of a humankind that recognised no national or völkisch boundaries.

Before Hitler came to power, Driesch had been warning, both in academic and newspaper articles, of the dangers of the growing nationalistic mood. To counter this, he stressed the biological unity of the human species. He also voiced his opposition to militarism, describing this as the “the most terrible of all sins” against the vitalistic principles of life, holistic cooperation and higher development. (37)

The Russian-Swiss neurobiologist Constantin von Monakow (1853-1930) also developed a holistic and organic theory which retained its logical coherence by talking about interconnected wholes, rather than veering off into the fragmented and divisive particularism of Nazi dogma.

Constantin von Monakow
Constantin von Monakow

Monakow came up with the idea of the horme, a kind of all-pervading intrinsic motivating and guiding force. He explained: “The horme is nothing other than the activity of the universe (Worldhorme), within which we human-children are highly organized necessary parts. As such we are temporally and partly also spatially – through free mobility – closely bound up with one another: we form ties with animals and plants and also with nonorganic bodies, into which last we merge after death. There is an undeniable glory in the thought that an indelible temporal bond links us, not only with our ancestors and our descendants, but above all also with the whole rest of the organic world”. (38)

He interpreted our relationship to the outside world in terms of expanding concentric circles of awareness. The most basic level of existence involved a preoccupation with self and survival. This was often extended to a focus on family and the immediate community around the individual.

But more evolved human beings could grasp their belonging to increasingly larger entities, up to the human species, the organic world and the cosmos.

Monakow’s holistic vision of all life as being enmeshed in one dynamic process of evolution thus naturally involved an internationalist perspective. Nothing else, in fact, would have made sense in that context.

It also placed him in opposition to the thinking of an industrial age which rejected any idea of organic subject-to-subject relationships with fellow parts of the natural organism in favour of a subject-to-object relationship based on domination and exploitation.

He saw that to heal itself and set itself back on its true evolutionary course, humanity had to trust in its deepest biological impulses. All the wisdom we needed to find that course was already within us, but stifled by the constructs of modern society. We had to tap into that natural sense of direction and rightness, he said, and realise that every tiny living fibre inside us is “so much more wonderful than all the wonders of technology and a thousand times more clever”. (39)

One of the most enthusiastic advocates of Monakow’s approach was Kurt Goldstein (1878-1965), a Jewish socialist critic of modernity, who set out to combine holistic and organic German philosophy with the values of reason, democracy and individual freedom.

Throughout his life, he warned against the dangers of applying narrow, fragmented scientific ways of thinking to other realms.

He wrote in an unpublished 1965 paper: “The progress by the application of science to all fields, also those which are related to the spiritual side of man, as education, psychology, sociology, etc, seems to be so enormous that somebody who today dares to oppose even a little this trend and warns against the fateful consequences for human existence is considered either stupid or uneducated, irresponsible or prejudiced”. (40)

From Goldstein’s holistic perspective, everything was interconnected, outside and inside the individual human being. The words ‘mind’ and ‘body’, for instance, did not point to genuine entities but were just ‘symbols’, human abstractions, denoting different aspects of an overall organic reality that could not in fact be divided.

He has been described, by Ruth Nanda Anshen, as having introduced “a new doctrine of organism which may be said to be taking the place of the materialism with which, since the seventeenth-century, science has enmeshed philosophy”. (41)

The psychologist Max Wertheimer (1880-1943), took Goethe as a starting point, developing the idea of Gestalt, or underlying form, in a promising direction far removed from the dead-end of racism into which the Nazis tried to divert it.

Born in Prague, he fled central Europe before Hitler came to power and continued his work in the USA, later becoming an American citizen.

EGYPT: The mutilated remains of three children have been found dumped on the side of a Cairo road wrapped in black garbage bags on Tuesday, according to local reports.

The grisly discovery was made by a woman who saw dogs scavenging among what she thought was dumped garbage as she walked to work in the Marioteya district of greater Cairo - it was only when she got closer that she saw a baby’s head.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that the bodies belonged to a one-year-old baby, and two children aged three and five.

          Offer - Are You Cut Out to be a Mystic Entrepreneur? 7 Telltale Signs - Phoenix      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Once you have decided to embark on your entrepreneurial journey, it is very important to understand what type of an entrepreneur are you. There are entrepreneurs who are motivated by money, profit and material success and there are those who are inspired by a greater cause. They tend to incorporate divine love, passion, creativity, spirituality and wisdom in their daily, routine work, no matter how mundane it is to be. They are different from other types of entrepreneurs and stand in their own league and are called spiritual ormystic entrepreneurs. Understanding your distinct nature and evolving your practice accordingly help you come up with a brand and service that is authentic, grounded, and result-oriented. This kind of soul searching would help you understand how your service is distinct from the competition, what you are offering and how much it is worth, who your ideal clients are, and how you can help them out. Being a spiritual entrepreneur is so very different from being any other type of an entrepreneur. It is about creating a unique spiritual and mystical service that resonates with your faith, vision and inner values and is designed to help and support others. Here are 7 telltale signs of a mystic or spiritual entrepreneur:A Deeper Interest in Matters of the Heart, Mind, Emotions and Soul Mystic entrepreneurs are more spirit and soul conscious. They are grounded and secure in their mysticism and spirituality and are not at odds with them. They believe in improving the mind, mind sciences, mental and spiritual health, self-help, self-improvement, etc. They are constantly looking for ways to bring emotional health, wellness, healing, and peace to their lives and that of their loved ones. They are into reiki, yoga, meditation and Feng Shui and meditate a lot.A Growth-Oriented MindsetEntrepreneurs with a mystic bent are naturally curious and restless by nature. They are intrigued by the mysteries of the Universe and their own souls. They have a strong desire to invest in themselves that is, their own learning and refinement. They are not afraid to learn, unlearn and relearn, go into unknown directions within to keep evolving at a soul conscious level. They seek to work with masters, seers and master trainers and learn from them and commit a lot of time to self-improvement activities. They are looking for inner fulfillment and try to look for meaning and joy in things.A Larger than Life VisionMystical beings feel that they are here on Earth not by accident but to fulfill a greater and nobler purpose. They are not motivated by financial figures and goals and amassing material things. They have a noble and grand vision which encompasses not their own selves but the greater good of the world at large. They are deeply concerned about issues facing their community as well as humanity and the world at large. They not only try to raise the awareness of others but also try to find practical solutions for problems. They may not have oodles of money but still try to commit their time, and invest their money and resources into philanthropic causes.A Degree of IntuitionEntrepreneurs with mystic abilities are highly sensitive and intuitive. They have an uncanny insight and have a way of knowing hidden or unrealized things about others without even being told. They can have a look at a person and his or her workings and can guess the story running in the background. They often have insightful and fantastic revelations about others. They look for hidden meaning and connection between seemingly disjointed things.Appreciation for Solitude as well as CompanyEntrepreneurs with a mystical mindset are introverts. They prefer to be in like-minded, inspiring company or they prefer flying solo. They like to reconnect with themselves, their own spirit and soul in solitude. They are drawn to nature walks, meditation, long baths or spas. They shun the fast-paced party life but are drawn to deep, invigorating, stimulating conversations, and retreats of the like-minded ones.Trustable GuidesDue to their intuitive, mystic abilities, these special breed of entrepreneurs are often recipients of long distance calls and lengthy emails from their friends and loved ones. Why? It is because they are trusted and relied upon by their friends not as a shoulder to cry on, but as trustworthy allies and advisors. They are sought by their friends for guidance and for solid advice. Their friends, family members, and loyal clients hesitate and resist making critical decisions without consulting them first and the mystic entrepreneurs take their trust and faith very seriously and help them come up with the best solutions to their problems.A Higher Degree of EmpathyMystic entrepreneurs have a higher degree of empathy for others and are moved by their pain and sufferings. The minute they hear that a friend or loved one is in some kind of trouble, they are moved to action. They try to find means and ways to ease their loved ones’ pain and troubles. They are often concerned about not just the physical but the emotional and spiritual wellbeing of others. They not only extend comfort and a shoulder to cry on but also spring to action and try to find practical solutions. As coaches and trainers, mystic entrepreneursare in a unique position to help others in overcoming their mental blocks, their personal issues through personalized, one on one training and guidance. They offer others a chance to transform their bodies, minds and lives, and move to a higher and more evolved soul conscious level. They help others manifest their desires and ideals through personalized guidance.If you can identify with these traits then you are clearly a mystical or spiritual entrepreneur or one in the making and would do well in a business that deals with these aspects.

          Toadcast #45 - The Stevecast      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Okay, not so much a podcast this week, more my effort to recreate a mix tape sent to me by my Mum's cousin when I was far too young to appreciate its brilliance.  On the plus side though, despite my failure to really understand how lucky I was, they leaked more indelibly into my consciousness because I was so young that it all went beyond 'music I remember' and became something more fundamental than that.

I played this tape quite literally to death.  I think it finally gave up the ghost some time when I was about thirteen or fourteen - about 1988 or 1989.  I forgot about it for some time after that, and it was only some ten years later, about the time of Napster, that it occurred to me to finally try and reassemble all these brilliant songs together again.

Well, I tried but I failed.  The biggest problem was remembering what was on the thing.  I mean, a tape I last listened to ten years ago, whatare the chances?  Still, aided by perseverance and some good fortune I prety much managed to as best I could.  Some I remembered immediately, others took a while, and still others took the discovery of songs on the tape itself to trigger the memory.  Easily the best playlist of any Toadcast to date, I'm only ashamed that it's me talking about this music instead of someone more knowledgeable.

Yoo hoo Toadlings, welcome to Toadcast No. 22.  This one is a sort of natural follow-on from the series of movie soundtrack posts we ran on the site a week or so ago.  I can't believe we managed an entire series without mentioning either Ennio Morricone or Quentin Tarantino.

So I've tried to put that part right here, as well as throwing in some corkers by the likes of Nick Cave & Warren Ellis and a few others.  It may come across slightly as a novelty podcast, what with the Darth Vader theme music and so on, but I still think it makes an interesting listen. 

It actually made an interesting listen for me this morning too, because I was so utterly shanghaied on gin by the end of it that I actually don't remember half of the introductions to the songs towards the end.  So join me on a voyage of discovery and find out exactly what on earth I found to say about Nick Cave whilst pickled out of my tits on a Friday evening.

          MorphoSys Announces its Licensee Janssen has Initiated a Phase 2/3 Program (GALAXI) to Evaluate Tremfya(R) (Guselkumab) in Crohn’s Disease      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

PLANEGG and MUNICH, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / July 10, 2018 / MorphoSys AG (NASDAQ: MOR), (FSE: MOR), (XETRA: MOR) announced today that its licensee Janssen Research & Development, LLC, part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), has initiated a pivotal phase 2/3 clinical program to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Tremfya(R) (guselkumab) in the treatment of patients with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease. Expected to enroll approximately 2,000 patients, the program, which is named GALAXI, consists of three separate studies, a phase 2 study (GALAXI 1), followed by two phase 3 studies (GALAXI 2 and GALAXI 3).

Tremfya(R) is a fully human anti-IL-23 monoclonal antibody developed by Janssen, and was generated utilizing MorphoSys's proprietary HuCAL antibody technology.

In connection with the start of the GALAXI program, MorphoSys will receive two milestone payments from Janssen. Financial details were not disclosed.

Dr. Markus Enzelberger, Chief Scientific Officer of MorphoSys AG, said: "We are very pleased that our licensee Janssen has started a pivotal phase 2/3 development program in Crohn's disease, a severe illness where significant unmet needs exist despite the availability of some effective therapies. If successful, this could result in a further expansion of the therapeutic range of Tremfya(R)."

Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) affecting any part of the gastrointestinal tract. In addition to the clinical development in Crohn's disease, Tremfya(R) is currently being investigated in two phase 3 trials in psoriatic arthritis. Tremfya(R) has been approved in the U.S., Canada, the European Union, and several other countries for the treatment of plaque psoriasis and in Japan for the treatment of both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

More information about Tremfya(R) (guselkumab) clinical studies is available on clinicaltrials.gov.

About Crohn's disease

Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by inflammation of the digestive, or gastrointestinal (GI) tract affecting about 700,000 people in the U.S. Crohn's disease can affect any part of the GI tract, from the mouth to the anus, but it is more commonly found at the end of the small intestine. The disease can also affect eyes, the skin and joints. Currently, there is no cure for Crohn's disease. Though the exact cause of the disease is unknown, genes, the immune system and environmental factors are all believed to play a role in the onset of the disease.

About MorphoSys

MorphoSys is a late-stage, biopharmaceutical company devoted to the development of innovative and differentiated therapies for patients suffering from serious diseases. Based on its technological leadership in generating antibodies, MorphoSys, together with its partners, has developed and contributed to the development of more than 100 product candidates, of which 28 are currently in clinical development. This broad pipeline spans MorphoSys's two business segments: Proprietary Development, in which the Company invests in product candidates for its own account, and Partnered Discovery, in which product candidates are developed exclusively for a variety of Pharma and Biotech partners. In 2017, Tremfya(R) (guselkumab), marketed by Janssen, became the first therapeutic antibody based on MorphoSys's proprietary technology to receive marketing approval for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in the United States, the European Union and Canada.

This communication contains certain forward-looking statements concerning the MorphoSys group of companies, expectations regarding a pivotal clinical development program of Tremfya(R) in Crohn's disease and milestone payments received on the start of a clinical development program of Tremfya(R) in Crohn's disease, the further clinical development of Tremfya(R) including the treatment of psoriatic arthritis and the possible further expansion of the therapeutic range of Tremfya(R).

          The 12 Best News Apps for Keeping Up with the Best of the Web      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The internet's a big place, expanding every day—so how do you make sure you're catching up on the best of what the web has to offer?

By having the right apps and tools at your disposal. Whether you're interested in news stories in your area of expertise or every published article from one particular source, news apps to help you sort the good stuff from the rest.

With Facebook and other sites constantly changing their approach to just how far different types of content can travel, you need a reliable way of surfacing the best material. Here are our recommendations for the best news apps (including news aggregators and news readers), so you can stay on top of information overload and never miss out on what's important to you. And, unless otherwise noted below, these apps are all free.

1. Google News

Best for a bird's eye view of breaking stories

Google News screenshot

Freshly revamped in the last couple of months, Google News (iOS, Android, web) is now better at gathering the news than ever before, no matter what your interests.

Of particular note are the Full coverage panels, available on bigger stories—they give you a range of sources on a breaking story, plus relevant tweets and videos, and even a timeline showing you how events have unfolded.

On top of that you can follow the topics and news sources you're most interested in, and give individual stories a thumbs up or a thumbs down, all of which means you'll get more relevant news the next time around.

While it's not the most important consideration, the modern-looking app interface certainly helps as well, directing you quickly to the main meat of a story.

2. Apple News

If you want both humans and an algorithm curating news for you

Apple News screenshot

It's not had as big an overhaul as Google News, but Apple News (integrated into iOS and now macOS) has been given a few upgrades of its own lately, including a new sidebar that pops up on the iPad app.

What's more, Siri now chimes in (if you want it to) to suggest stories based on the apps you've been using and the sites you've been browsing in Safari. The more you use Apple News, the theory goes, the smarter it gets at working out what you want to read about.

Top stories curated by Apple's team of human editors are dropped into the mix as well, giving you a number of options for navigating through the breaking news of the day. You can also browse by category using the headings on the left of the app.

We like the way everything's kept contained in the Apple News itself, which means you're not fighting with 20 open browser tabs to get to the content you want.

3. Flipboard

Perfect for a visual overview of the big stories

Flipboard screenshot

Flipboard (iOS, Android, web) is based around the idea of a digital magazine curated by you—a compendium of stories of interest, pulled from your choice of news sources, blogs, and any other site you can plug into Flipboard (which is pretty much all of them).

You can be as broad or as specific as you like with Flipboard: Point it towards a general topic like technology or productivity, or specify one site in particular that you want to keep up with, and Flipboard mixes everything together seamlessly.

In terms of the interface especially, Flipboard beats out other news-gathering apps, with an intuitive flow that feels natural whether you want to check out the top stories of the day or dig deeper into something that hasn't been as widely covered. Where relevant, podcasts, tweets, and videos can be embedded alongside news stories.

It's not just for you either—you can collect together articles in a Flipboard magazine to share with family or with a team at work, helping other people to focus on what's important in certain sectors and cut out the extraneous noise.

4. Feedly

Get every new blog post or article from your favorite sites in one place

Feedly screenshot

Google Reader may have gone but RSS (Really Simple Syndication) lives on — and Feedly (iOS, Android, web) is the best option out there for gathering news through the long-lasting standard.

RSS suits those who want all the news from a particular blog or website, unfiltered by algorithms or editors: It includes everything a site publishes, so you don't miss anything from your favorite sources. If you can't be online for a day, all the stories are ready and waiting for you when you get back.

There are many reasons why Feedly is our RSS reader of choice, from the ease-of-use of the interface to the wealth of options and features you get: A read-it-later list, comprehensive search and sharing tools, advanced filtering, tools for adding notes and highlights, and so on.

It really does include every feature you could ask for, and can even keep tabs on sites that don't have a traditional RSS feed. Feedly connects with a host of other useful services and apps too, including Zapier.

5. TweetDeck

A supercharged version of Twitter

TweetDeck screenshot

TweetDeck (web or macOS) is often described as Twitter for the pros, and this third-party client is so good that Twitter itself bought it in 2011. TweetDeck offers a host of useful features, including real-time updating and advanced searches and filters.

The TweetDeck interface is based around columns, and you can have as many of them as you want really—for your main timeline, for lists, for notifications, for specific searches you've run, and so on. You might set up one of your columns to find hits for the hashtag #zapier, for instance, and watch the tweets roll in.

No matter what you want to keep tabs on, whether it's a trending news story or a particular account handle—or dozens of them at once—TweetDeck can help. All of your columns can have certain words matched or excluded, and they can be limited to specific users (like your team's accounts) if necessary.

The only downside is it's only fully supported on the web (Twitter shut down the Windows version and the Mac version hasn't been significantly updated in a few years). But if the news you need is out there on Twitter, TweetDeck will deliver it for you.

6. Nuzzel

If you want to surface the most shared stories from your network

Nuzzel

What Nuzzel ([iOS] (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nuzzel-news-for-professionals/id692285770?mt=8), Android, web) does best is cut through the noise that might be overwhelming your Twitter or LinkedIn feed to bring you the most popular stories being shared by most of your contacts on those networks.

You choose whom to follow on those platforms, and so—the theory goes—the stuff they share is the stuff you want to read about. Nuzzel makes sure the big stories of the day in your feeds get surfaced quickly, so you can let everything else drift by. In practice, it works really well.

If just seeing the stories popular with your closest contacts feels too restrictive, then Nuzzel lets you broaden this out by looking at stories being shared by "friends of friends," and the stories trending more generally across LinkedIn and Twitter. For those of you who need a concise summary of the news of the day, Nuzzel is handy.

The app has got a couple of other useful features, too: When a story starts to be shared by a lot of your friends, you can get breaking news alerts about it on mobile. Plus, Nuzzel lets you easily create your own email newsletters, by curating your pick of the top stories and enabling you to add as much or as little additional commentary as you like.

7. Pocket

Get a deeper dive behind trending articles

Pocket screenshot

Pocket (iOS, Android, web) is primarily a read-it-later service, somewhere you can stash articles and videos you discover on the web until you're ready to get around to reading or watching them. However, it can help you find the best reads too.

Click the "Recommended" or "Explore" links on the web or the "Discover" tab on mobile to bring up a list of articles that are trending on the Pocket network. These are the web posts that are gaining a lot of traction with audiences (Pocket has over 10 million monthly active users). These picks are partly determined by the articles you've already saved in your Pocket account, so they should match your interests.

Of course, you can save any of these recommendations to Pocket as well and organize them with tags or stick them in the Favorites category for easy access. No matter what device you're on, you can find something good to read with Pocket.

8. Reddit

Tap into the power of the crowd

Reddit screenshot

You might think of Reddit (iOS, Android, web) as something vaguely analogous to the Wild West of the Web, and you'd be right. However, if you know how to use the site and apps properly, it's one of the top spots for finding the most essential online content with just a few clicks or taps.

You can start on the self-styled "front page of the internet"—the Reddit homepage—or dive deeper into the subreddits that match your interests, whether that's entrepreneurship, technology, creativity, productivity, or anything else. If there's a topic you're interested in, then chances are there's a subreddit you can subscribe to.

Thanks to the busy Reddit community, it's like having an army of users searching out the best content on the web for you. Add in the new redesign on top, which makes posts cleaner and easier to read, and it's well worth including in your news-gathering tools.

9. Digg

Find stories you probably won't find anywhere else

Digg screenshot

Like Reddit, Digg (iOS, Android, web) aims to bring the best of what's on the web to you, via the power of proprietary algorithms and some good old-fashioned human curation. Its tagline is "what the internet is talking about right now," which sums it up pretty well.

The front page presents you with an elegantly laid out summary of the most important stories of the day, and you'll find these stories tend to shy away from breaking news to focus more on long reads and more thoughtful content. It's a useful way of finding excellent writing outside of the daily news cycle.

Various category sections let you go further into Digg's news curation service, and at any point you're able to save articles for later reading or share them out more widely. While it doesn't have much in the way of personalization, it can be your quick stop-off point for articles and videos of interest.

10. Mix

For discovering great reads from top content publishers

Mix screenshot

Mix (web) recently absorbed StumbleUpon, one of the oldest discovery tools on the web, and it's now looking to carry on the same tradition of helping you find the most notable content on the web.

At times, the process of finding articles almost feels serendipitous. You pick topics you're interested in, such as life hacks, technology, culture, travel, or space, and let Mix do the rest—It serves up super-relevant stories across all of the categories you've selected. On top of that, you can point Mix towards specific sites you enjoy reading.

The news sources that Mix plunders are some of the best and most respectable sites on the web, from National Geographic to Mental Floss, so you're guaranteed to finding something interesting and informative to read every time you load up the site. Articles can be saved to customizable collections inside your account too, for safe keeping.

11. Zig

For when you want your news easily digestible

Zig screenshot

Another news-collecting app worthy of your time is Zig (iOS, Android, web). The idea is to quiz you on your interests, from celebrities to news topics, and then serve up a personalized platter of news that looks good and is a breeze to get through.

In other words, Zig is out to remove as much digital clutter from your life as possible, a welcome aim in our times of information overload and a never-ending cascade of news. Part of the app's magic is the way it takes detailed stories or topics and summarizes them in a visual, bite-sized way that won't slow you down unnecessarily.

Emphasis is given to photos and videos over text, so this isn't the place to find long reads or detailed industry analysis, but the Zig apps work well as automated entry points for the news of the day—and they can save you a lot of time clicking and scrolling on the web.

12. News360

Best for getting the news tailored to you

News360 screenshot

Finally, there's News360 (iOS, Android, web), a news aggregator app that's been around since 2010 and does a fantastic job of pulling together news from multiple sources, based around your interests and preferences.

You'll find News360 simple to connect to and simple to operate, with the option of Facebook and Twitter integration available to further refine the type of stories you see (based on your social media sharing activity). If you then like or dislike articles as they appear, the News360 algorithms get refined even further.

Everything is wrapped up in a visually pleasing, card-based interface that works really well for at-a-glance news consumption, as well as for pulling in the key stories you need to know about from the mass of content that's out there online. One of News360's best features is it shows, for each topic, how many sites are referencing it. For example, you can see at a glance that Sports Illustrated and 413 other sites reported on the 2018 NBA Draft. Unlike your RSS reader or Twitter stream, you won't see multiple versions of the same story, which means you can get the news you want without too much clutter.


The avalanche of news that breaks each and every day can be daunting, but with the right apps at hand, it doesn't have to be—you can get the news you want, in the way you want it, and keep up to speed with what's happening in the world.

I think that, besides community action, there is an increasing role for so-called <em>citizen scientists</em>. There have been articles written on the viability and need of doing that, including providing associated training. At first, these are most valuable in sciences where field work or field monitoring is essential. First of all, there's a book: <code>Cooper, Caren. 2016. Citizen science: how ordinary people are changing the face of discovery. The Overlook Press, Wooster, New York. 320 p. $29.95 (hardcover), ISBN: 978-1-4683-0867-9; $28.95 (e-book), ASIN: B01F0DFLZU.</code> It was reviewed at ``<a href="https://esajournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/ecy.1987" rel="nofollow">Importance of citizen science for science, individuals, communities, and the planet</a>'' by Kerry Griim in <em>Ecology</em>, 2017. Second, Aceves-Bueno, Adeleye, eraud, Huang, Tao, Yang, Anderson offered ``<a href="https://esajournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/bes2.1336" rel="nofollow">The Accuracy of Citizen Science Data: A Quantitative Review</a>'' in <em>Bulletin of the Ecological Society of America</em> also in 2017. This is importance since accuracy of such data is probably the biggest concern professional scientists voice. Also see Kosmala, Wiggins, Swanson, Simmons, ``<a href="https://esajournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/fee.1436" rel="nofollow">Assessing data quality in citizen science</a>'', <em>Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment</em>, 2016. Third, Schuttler, Sorensen, Jordan, Cooper, Shwartz, ``<a href="https://esajournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/fee.1826" rel="nofollow">Bridging the nature gap: can citizen science reverse the extinction of experience?</a>'', from 2018, also in <em>Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment</em>. This is an area of keen interest for me, and I am working outside of my professional statistical employment, heading for a publication submission. My area of interest is both assessing quality of citizen science data, and at the same time devising means of fixing blemishes. For example, periodic monitoring is sometimes interrupted because, well, for reasons beyond their control, an observer doesn't get to doing the observation on a particular day. This kind of missing data happens all the time in medical work, and, while it isn't the easiest thing to fix, it can be fixed. All that said, and as a professional statistician, people who are interested as eager and educated citizens to participate need to be aware that sometimes a thick skin is required .... Not all scientists are as willing for people to participate in their research as others. Most of their interactions are with graduate students and post-docs and the social relationship between the professor and these candidates is medieval. On the other hand, there are many fine instances of scientists who encourage and train and celebrate people coming onto project to help them. My take is, as not only a statistician but also as a once-upon-a-time test engineer who had technicians reporting to him, if an experimental procedure demands high skill or is hard to explain, while there are some instances where that's unavoidable, in general it's better to have an experiment where that kind of skill isn't necessary. It's hard to find and is not always true, the evidence that's out there says the lauded high data quality of professional technicians, students, and scientists in the field isn't that much better than fhose from citizen scientists. But YMMV. [<b>Response: the best citizen science I know of is in astronomy. You might want to acquaint yourself with AAVSO (American Association of Variable Star Obstevers).]

          DuraSpace News: Core Attributes of Fedora Repository Enable Complex Modeling of Data and Objects For Re-use in a Wide Variety of Instances      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The name Fedora is an acronym for the Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture. The Fedora Repository is very flexible; it is capable of serving as a digital content repository for a wide variety of use cases. Among these are digital asset management, institutional repositories, data repositories, digital archives, content management systems, scholarly publishing enterprises, and digital libraries. The Fedora Repository is able to store any sort of digital resource such as documents, videos, datasets, computer files, and images, plus it can store metadata about the content items in any format. In addition, the relationships between content items can be stored–which is often as important as the content items themselves. You can choose to store just the metadata and relationships for content which is held by another organization or system such as cloud storage, archival tape storage, databases etc.

Why Fedora?
Technological innovations occur because there is an unanswered need within a community that inspires individuals or groups to develop potential solutions to solve a problem. By 1998 early Internet users, particularly in the scholarly ecosystem, had become more sophisticated at creating and using many varieties of complex digital content. Digital repositories needed to evolve into more sophisticated storage and access containers. As digital collections grew, and were made use of in previously unconsidered ways, repository managers were faced with management tasks of increasing complexity. Collections contained multiple data types, and organizations need to archive and preserve complex objects, as well as web sites and other complex, multi-part documents. And finally, the need to establish relationships between data objects in a repository had become more and more apparent. It was in this era that core attributes of the Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture–Fedora–were developed. But this is no mere anachronism; these core Fedora attributes remain key relevant features because community use cases of today are no less complex than they were 20 years ago.

Fedora development has been focused on whittling down the core to the most valuable kernel of abstraction around digital objects so that users and developers can access a Fedora repository to serve digital objects with even more flexibility in how they integrate surrounding services.

These original goals for Fedora’s development are still important:
• Identifiers: provision of persistent identifiers; unique names for all resources without respect for machine address
• Relationships: support for relationships between objects
• Tame Content: normalization of heterogeneous content and metadata based on an extensible object model
• Integrated Management: efficient management by repository administrators not only of the data and metadata in a repository, but also of the supporting programs, services and tools that make presentation of that data and metadata possible
• Interoperable Access: provision of interoperable access by means of a standard protocol to information about objects and for access to object content; discovery and execution of extensible service operations for digital objects
• Scalability: provision of support for >10 million objects
• Security: provision of flexible authentication and policy enforcement
• Preservation: provision of features to support longevity and archiving, including text-based serialization of objects and content versioning
• Content Recon: reuse of objects including object content being present in any number of contexts within a repository; repurposing of objects allowing dynamic content transformations to fit new presentations requirements

The Fedora digital object model offers the strengths and advantages of:
• Abstraction: The object model is the same whether the object is data, behavior definitions, or other kinds of objects. It also does not matter what kind of data the digital objects is representing—text, images, maps, audio, video, geospatial data are all the same to Fedora.
• Flexibility: Implementers of Fedora can design their content models to best represent their data and the presentation requirements of their specific use case.
• Generic: Metadata and content are tightly linked within the digital object.
• Aggregation: Fedora objects can refer to data that is stored locally or that is stored on any web accessible server.
• Extensibility: Fedora can be extended in a number of ways: event-based messaging workflows, the REST-API, and the API Extension Framework, which provides a mechanism for binding shareable services to repository resources.

Fedora continues to focus on durability as well, though this thinking has evolved over time. Fedora originally focused on XML as a preservation standard, specifically the Fedora Object XML or FOXML. While this had the advantage of making Fedora resources relatively human-readable, the use of a custom XML schema known only to the Fedora community presents its own set of long-term preservation and access challenges. The current version of Fedora focuses on modern, widely-adopted web standards as a means of avoiding the need to maintain custom schemas, and leverages RDF as the primary means of describing Fedora resources in a standardized way. An import/export utility allows Fedora users to export some or all of their resources as serialized RDF, which does not depend on a custom Fedora schema. Current efforts like the Oxford Common File Layout may be implemented in Fedora in the future to support even more preservation use cases.

Fedora repositories offer implementers the option of versioning both container (metadata) and binary resources. Versions can be created on-demand, and previous versions can be restored. The next major release of Fedora will support the Memento standard for retrieving historical versions of repository resources.
Object to Object Relationships: Relationships between objects can be stored via the metadata included in the objects. This allows implementers to link together related objects into parent/child relationships.
Event History: An audit trail can optionally be maintained for every object in a Fedora repository, which preserves a record of every change made to the object.

Fedora remains the best repository platform choice for users who need a flexible, extensible, scalable repository for complex modeling of data and objects that may be re-used in a wide variety of instances. Over 300 organizations in more than 35 countries have registered their Fedora installations. Visit the Fedora Registry to learn more about how Fedora is used by organizations and institutions.

Austin is so big and if you do not know about the hidden places, you will never find them. I live in the "burbs" and don't make it into Austin much, but it would be fun to do with some friends. If you get a chance, check out https://centsationalstyle.com/. Kate does a lot of travel and almost always stays at an AirBNB pretty much everywhere she goes and posts about it. It almost seems like the way to travel these days. Thanks for the post.

          Comment on It’s Hard to Learn if you Already Know by Tracy Defoe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Thanks for sharing this, Mark. Leadership is hard if you have to act on your belief that you already know and should tell people what to do. So much less stressful to respect people and give them a safe place to work together toward new answers and new ways to think about problems. Also makes me think about those kids in Thailand, and the team of people working to get them back to the surface. One of my favourite questions to ask people to understand their work culture is, "Tell me about the last time you had a really good day at work." The most common answers are stories about someone unexpectedly thanking or acknowledging them and their work, or about a time when they were completely surprised by the way a situation they thought they knew all about turned into a moment of discovery, new knowledge or making an improvement. I love these ones. You don't just need an open mind, you need open eyes and ears (and heart), too.

          'Three Identical Strangers' Tells The Astounding Story Of Triplets Separated At Birth      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Copyright 2018 Fresh Air. To see more, visit Fresh Air . TERRY GROSS, HOST: This is FRESH AIR. The new documentary "Three Identical Strangers" centers on triplets adopted from the same agency in the early 1960s by three different families - none of which knew about the others. Director Tim Wardle follows the story from the brothers' accidental discovery of one another in 1980 through the attempt in the '90s, by journalist Lawrence Wright, to unravel the whole story. Film critic David Edelstein has this review. DAVID EDELSTEIN, BYLINE: "Three Identical Strangers" is a puzzle documentary. And the more pieces the director Tim Wardle fills in, the more astonished you get and the angrier too because what starts out as a "Parent Trap"-like lark becomes increasingly diabolical before your eyes. Robert Shafran, Bobby, is the first of the film's narrators. In the late '70s, he was an incoming sophomore at an upstate New York college, where he was greeted effusively and even hugged by girls.

          Scientists Have Discovered Ancient Color Pigment Inside A Fossilized Rock That Is 1.1 Billion Years Old      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The oldest color pigment has been found inside a 1.1-billion-year-old fossilized rock.

Scientists have made the startling discovery of fossilized chlorophyll that is the most ancient color pigment ever to be found inside of a rock, shattering the previous record by more than 600 million years. The color of this particular pigment? A dazzling pink.

As Science Alert reports, this discovery is proof of photosynthesis 1.1 billion years ago, yet more more exciting than that was the revelation that the pigment was created by bacteria, which might explain why when it comes to evolution animals took as long as they did to appear on the scene.

The fossilized chlorophyll was found hidden inside marine black shales by a team of researchers who were investigating an area of Mauritania, West Africa, that is known as the Taoudeni Basin. And while the color itself was a brilliant shade of pink, the life that created it would almost certainly have been even more vivid.

    "Under The Wire", the new video from DREAM CHILD, a brand new band featuring former members of DIO, AC/DC and QUIET RIOT, can be seen below. The song is taken from DREAM CHILD's debut album, "Until Death Do We Meet Again", which will be released on September 14 via Frontiers Music Srl. DREAM CHILD is: * Craig Goldy (DIO, GIUFFRIA): Guitar * Wayne Findlay (MSG): Guitar, Keyboards * Simon Wright (AC/DC, DIO, OPERATION: MINDCRIME): Drums * Rudy Sarzo (QUIET RIOT, OZZY OSBOURNE, WHITESNAKE, DIO): Bass * Diego Valdez (HELKER): Vocals Goldy stated about DREAM CHILD's formation: "The band DREAM CHILD was conceived during a brainstorming session with Serafino (president of Frontiers) and I one day while discussing other matters. "I had been listening to my favorite bands a lot recently, DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW's 'Rising' album, among others in that style, and had noticed that many people who also love those bands often have the very same comments as one another: 'They don't make music like that anymore!' Even though I said that in passing, Serafino asked me a question that would forever shape my future. He simply asked, "Well, can you?" and I said, 'Yes!!!' "During the very first public memorial for our most beloved Ronnie James Dio, I had mentioned that whenever I do start writing original material again that I would utilize everything that I had learned from working side by side with the Master for so many years in such a way that I would hope to make him proud... and here it is! The name is inspired by one of his lyrics on the 'Dream Evil' album and the nickname he gave me at the time, Dream Child! "We are so very fortunate to have bassist Rudy Sarzo as a featured guest, Simon Wright on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitars and keyboards, and a surprise vocal discovery from Argentina, Diego Valdez, whose voice will send shivers up your spine! "This album will bring back memories of the days most people have thought were long gone and never to return, yet it is also new and fresh enough to be unique with some unexpected twists and turns!! No more 'same old, same old' here, no fillers. Every song is an oasis in the desert and a rare gem in the coalmines of life in this new world that thinks the past greatness of rock would remain in the past. We've brought it back to life once again!! "I am very proud of this album and all who have made this become a reality. There are some big names who've lent a hand in the writing and I am amazed at the new and aggressive sound that producer Alessandro Del Vecchio has brought to these songs! I hope you all agree...."

              Truth and Beauty - 28 May 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Vocabulary that trickles down from the top of the world. Malamute, kayak, and parka are just some of the words that have found their way into English from the language of indigenous people in northern climes. Also, the surprising language of physicists: in the 1970s, some scientists argued that two quarks should be called "truth" and "beauty." Finally, the many layers of words and worlds we invoke when we describe someone as "the apple of my eye." Plus, to have brass on one's face, frozen statues, good craic, prepone, agathism and agathakakological, and the positive use of I don't care to.

    FULL DETAILS

    In the 1970s, physicists predicted the discovery of two quarks called T and B for top and bottom. Some poetically-minded physicists argued that the T and B quarks should instead be called Truth and Beauty, but the terms top and bottom eventually won out. terms. For the record, beauty lasts about one picosecond before decaying—at least when you're talking about quarks.

    Pepper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, wonders why something valuable to someone is called the apple of their eye. The expression apple of one’s eye is very old, going back to the ninth century. The use of apple derives from the early misunderstanding that the pupil of the eye is a sphere. Similarly, the French word for pupil is prunelle, or little plum. The word pupil itself comes from Latin pupilla, or little doll, because if you look deeply into someone’s eyes, you’ll see a tiny reflection of yourself. For the same reason, the expression to look babies at each other referred to the way lovers look into each others’ eyes, close enough to see themselves.

    The expression to have brass on one’s face is used in the South Atlantic region of the United States to describe someone who is bold or overconfident. There’s a similar idea in the word brazen, which derives from an Old English word for brass.

    Aru in Omaha, Nebraska, says friends and colleagues tease him about his use of prepone, as in to put something in front of something. It’s a word commonly used in Indian English, is morphologically sound, and quite useful.

    Our conversation about Spanish idioms involving food prompted a tweet from Tijuana, Mexico: del plato a la boca, se cae la sopa, or between the dish and the mouth, the soup spills, or don’t count your chickens before they hatch. A similar idea is reflected there’s many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip, an English proverb similar to a saying in ancient Greek.

    Quiz Guy John Chaneski's brain teaser involves puzzling out clues to words beginning with de-. For example: Hey, how can our team play baseball when somebody has quite literally stolen second?

    Craig, a whale biologist in Alaska, wonders how many words have been adopted into English from such languages as Inuit, Yupik, Tlingit and Inupiaq. Indigenous languages in the far North have contributed mukluk, malamute, kayak, and parka.The word parka took an especially long route into English, coming originally from native peoples in the Russian region of the Arctic Circle. Native American terms also give us some familiar animal names, such as opossum and raccoon.

    Agathism is the doctrine that all things ultimately tend toward good, even though the means by which tha happens may be evil or unpleasant or unfortunate. The word comes from Greek agathos, meaning good, which is also the source of agathakakological, an adjective describing a mixture of good and evil.

    Rebecca in Austin, Texas, wonders why the terms cold sore and fever blister describe pretty much the same thing. Also, why do we say we have a cold, but we have the flu? The word flu comes from the Italian word for influence, influenza, and is a reference to an old belief that a contagious illness was influenced by celestial movements.

    Nick, an Englishman who divides his time between Ireland and Virginia, says his American friends were baffled when he described a convivial evening with them as good craic, pronounced just like English crack. The word craic is often associated with the Irish, but it first appeared as crac in Northern England and Scotland, then migrated to Ireland, and its meaning evolved from talk or excited chatter to fun and good times. Another evocative Irish word is banjaxed, which describes something messed up.

    A proverb about what family members learn from each other: Parents teach their children to talk; children teach their parents silence.

    The children’s game of frozen statues putting players in awkward poses, which they must then hold for a while. This outdoor pastime has many variations and goes by many names, including falling statues, swinging statues, squat-where-you-be, statue makers, and game of statues. A similar game of spinning around together and then releasing each other is called going to Texas.

    Wayne in Sherman, Texas wonders how the term pear-shaped came to describe something that’s gone badly. The expression seems to have arisen during Falklands War of the early 1980s. If you need a word for pear-shaped, there's always pyriform, from the Latin word for pear, pirum.

    Our conversation about the term bear-caught, describing someone with heatstroke, prompted Sondra in Florida to share a poem on the topic written years ago by her late husband, Bert Furbee.

    Jane in Austin, Texas, is curious about the expression how the cow ate the cabbage, meaning to give someone a talking-to.

    Sugar weather refers to a period of time during the spring in Canada marked by warm days and cold nights, when the sap starts running in the trees.

    Jim from Bowling Green, Kentucky, says he's heard some folks in his area use the phrase I don't care when they mean to accept an offer. This affirmative use is somewhat similar to saying Don't mind if I do, meaning yes, thank you.

    On our Facebook group, Brett asks: What do you call a society run by rabbits? A carrotocracy? How about a whatsupdocracy?

    While your genes are more or less set in stone, the way they're expressed can be changed by environmental or lifestyle factors, and there's evidence that these changes can even be inherited from parents. A new study has found that male mice who spend time in cold environments may pass down this "experience" to their kids, in the form of higher levels of warming brown fat.

    It is estimated that 1.8 million people contract HIV every year, and while those rates are lower than when the virus was at its peak in the 1990s, it is still officially the subject of a global pandemic. Developing an effective vaccine has been frustrating scientists for decades due the ability of the virus to rapidly mutate. A team of researchers is now the closest they've ever been to producing a successful vaccine, with an experimental drug moving to a large-scale human trial in southern Africa.

               WHAT WE DID: Why can't you remember the future?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2018

    Part 2—And other extremely deep thoughts:
    Can it really be true? Is Carlo Rovelli's The Order of Time the worst book ever written?

    For us down here on this darkling plain, such judgments may seem overwrought, perhaps even hard to justify. Still, we're told that in the future caves where future anthropologists were forced to huddle in the wake of Mr. Trump's War, Rovelli's book is widely described as "fascinatingly awful," indeed as instructively so.

    (We've recently learned that Mr. Trump's War is also described, in this future realm, as The War of Vast Liberal Indifference. In this formulation, "liberal" is a shortened form of "pseudoliberal," a reference to the tribe which came to exhibit vast complete and total disdain toward all who were seen as lesser. We're now told that this future war actually occurred in the first year of Ivanka Trump's brief tenure as her father's appointed successor, during which time the former president was able to focus on his new role as Secretary of Endless and Fully Dispositive War.)

    Setting future history aside, let's return to the worst story ever told.

    Alas! Playing by the rules of the game, The Guardian has offered these prefab remarks about Rovelli's new book:
    THOMSON (4/24/18): Nobody said that relativity theory was easy. Einstein’s notion that time and space are essentially one (the concept of curved “spacetime”) is the stuff of abstract poetry. Fortunately, the Italian physicist Carlo Rovelli writes of “warped time” and other tentative physics with incisive clarity. Known for his work on loop quantum gravity theory and the pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Anaximander, Rovelli is one of our great scientific explicators. His poetic essay collection Seven Brief Lessons on Physics sold more than a million copies in English translation in 2017 and remains one of the fastest-selling science books ever.

    The Order of Time, a deeper, more abstruse meditation, elucidates some of the key developments in the philosophy and physics of time. Fortified with quotations from Proust, Anaximander and the Grateful Dead (Rovelli has a hippyish past), the book continues a tradition of jargon-free scientific writing from Galileo to Darwin that disappeared in the academic specialisation of the last century.
    In this way, Guardian readers were told that Rovelli's "jargon-free" book exhibits "incisive clarity" while being deep, abstruse, poetic. When such breakdowns in acuity spread across the wider world of journalism, the path was laid which eventually let Donald J. Trump take power.

    Whatever! In yesterday's report, we told you that the "At What Page" question yields this answer: page 12. At that page, it can reliably be said that, despite Rovelli's incisive clarity, no reader has the slightest idea what The Great Explicator is actually talking about.

    By that point, an early-round knockout has occurred. After page 12, there's no real reason to extend the pretense of reading this book.

    Warning signs come earlier. On pages 1-6, Rovelli presents the part of the book which precedes Part 1.

    The pomposity is general. On page 3, when readers encounter this passage, the gods on Olympus roar:
    ROVELLI (page 3): Wonder is the source of our desire for knowledge, and the discovery that time is not what we thought it was opens up a thousand questions. The nature of time has been at the center of my life’s work in theoretical physics. In the following pages, I give an account of what we have understood about time and the paths that are being followed in our search to understand it better, as well as an account of what we have yet to understand and what it seems to me that we are just beginning to glimpse.

    Why do we remember the past and not the future? Do we exist in time, or does time exist in us? What does it really mean to say that time “passes”? What ties time to our nature as persons, to our subjectivity?

    What am I listening to when I listen to the passing of time?
    "Wonder is the source of our desire for knowledge?"

    Peculiarly, this statement, found at the top of page 3, is adorned with the citation of an endnote. Impossibly, the endnote sources this air-filled claim to Aristotle's Metaphysics I.2.982—and no, we aren't making that up!

    Surely, the gods on Olympus roar when mortals read that endnote. We'll guess that, in their future caves, future anthropologists default to sullen thousand-yard stares.

    So these others react. But what are we supposed to make of the questions we've highlighted from that passage? Right there, on page 3, the reader is confronted by this:
    Why do we remember the past and not the future?
    Why do we remember the past and not the future! As the gods on Olympus roar, the rare pre-survivor on modern earth may politely answer this question with one of his or her own:
    Because the past has already happened and the future hasn't?
    Already, such readers may have a sense of the chaos to come. Others, observing the rules of the game, will agree to imagine that this deep question comes from the realm of Deep Thought.

    It doesn't! Meanwhile, what should readers make of this subsequent question?
    What am I listening to when I listen to the passing of time?
    People who haven't been led astray may balk at that pseudo-question. It will perhaps occur to them that they have a rough idea what someone means when he says he "listened to a passing train," but they've never heard anyone claim to "listen to the passing of time."

    For that reason, it may occur to them that they don't have the slightest idea what Rovelli means by his admittedly deep-sounding question. At this point, it may cross their minds that rough waters lie ahead.

    Some will quit on this book right there. They may say something like this, as they safely place the book out of the reach of children:

    "Rovelli may be a brilliant physicist. But in other realms, he seems hopeless, perhaps a bit lost."

    In our view, it's premature to quit on Rovelli's book on page 3. At what page is all hope lost?

    In our view, all hope is lost by page 12. Tomorrow, we'll visit that planet.

    Tomorrow: Time to move on

    For lovers of foolishness only: Part 1 of Rovelli's book starts on page 9. It's preceded by six pages of pompous piffle from which today's excerpt was drawn.

    Luckily, Rovelli's pages are very short. Thanks to Penguin Random House Canada, you can read pages 1-6 here.
