Viral Sonam Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor will burn your laptop screens with

first_imgTrust the Kapoor sisters to surprise you with their fashion statements and the divas never disappoint. Sonam Kapoor’s picture and Janhvi Kapoor’s latest Instagram pictures are living proof of that. The divas recently shared their best photos on Insta and as fans, we just can’t keep calm.Flaunting her curves and assets in this refreshing vintage style swimsuit, Sonam shared the picture and wrote, “Flashback to this summer I love vintage style swimsuits they really flatter my curves.. esp @normakamali.”Sonam Kapoor’s cousin sister and the latest girl-next-door of Bollywood, Janhvi Kapoor, too shared a bright picture of herself in a red dress. Reminding us a lot of her late mother, Sridevi, Janhvi looked absolutely flawless in the picture.On the personal front, Sonam Kapoor is happily married to beau Anand Ahuja and their Insta PDA shows us what happily ever afters are made of. Janhvi, on the other hand, is rumoured to be dating Ishan Khatter, while both have been constantly denying it.Talking about their long distance relationship, Sonam had said in an interview with Times Now, “I think the distance definitely makes the heart fonder. I miss him a lot and I think it’s important we both work. It’s important for our relationship, as partners. I hope one day we find work in the same country (laughs). I do tell him when I am doing something. Ya, I do take his opinion on…dates! Because obviously, I have to spend time with my husband. So, he and I coordinate on dates.”While Sonam Kapoor will be seen working with Dulquer Salmaan in the movie ‘The Zoya Factor’, Janhvi is busy shooting for the Gunjan Saxena biopic.last_img read more

Photo: Prothom AloRuling Bangladesh Awami League general secretary and road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday hinted at a possible reshuffle in the cabinet.The ruling party spokesperson dropped the hint in response to a volley of questions from reporters after a meeting of the minister with an Australian delegation at Bangladesh Secretariat.“It’s the discretion of the prime minister whether there will be any change in the cabinet. However, a reshuffle may be made in the cabinet. But I cannot say when it will happen,” said Quader.When his attention was drawn to a hearsay that a new post of deputy prime minister could be created, the minister said, “It is a mere rumour.”He claimed that he knew nothing about creation of such post.last_img read more

One out of four plays sports

first_img.Only one out of every four respondents plays sports in their leisure time. They not only play in the field, but enjoy sports on television as well. They spend about one and a half hours every day in this purposes, finds the survey.The study also revealed that those who have internet facilities take part and watch sports programmes more than those who do not have access to this.Of the respondents, around half of the students said they pass time playing games in their leisure time.It also said that youth from the village areas take part in sports more than their city counterparts.Female students’ participation in sports is very little (2.1 percent) compared to male students (46.8 per cent).The division wise results said that more than one third of young people from Mymensingh take part in sports whereas the number is 18 per cent in Chittagong and 16.6 per cent in Barisal. Youths from Rajshahi and Rangpur enjoy sports on television but most of the youth from Chittagong, Khulna, Sylhet and Barisal do not enjoy watching sports that much, the survey report said.Read book, newspapers, but a littleThe youth of the country give only 45 minutes to reading newspapers and half an hour to books every day, the youth survey indicates.Allocation of such small amount of time is due to some other tasks including watching television, gathering with friends and online chatting.The study also found that female students read books more whereas male students read newspapers.The respondents, however, said they want to increase their boundary of knowledge.According to the study findings, access to internet facilities affects the respondents significantly. Those who have access to it read more books and newspapers than those who do not have the facility.A little more than one third youth (31.3 per cent) read newspapers in leisure time.The Youth Survey-2017 also suggested that the bachelors read more than the married persons.Almost half of the youth living at towns read newspapers. The rate of regular newspaper readers in villages is 38.9 per cent.Division wise, youth of Rajshahi read newspapers the most (40.7 per cent) and the rate is least in Barisal (16.3 per cent).About half of the students read newspapers. Among them, nearly three fourth are graduate and postgraduate students, the survey said.The survey findings also said that the government job holders read newspapers most (64.4 per cent) whereas housewives read least.It also revealed that the habit of reading decreases with the age.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Shameen Rezalast_img read more

Mystery over apparent dearth of lithium 7 in universe deepens

first_img © 2012 Phys.org (Phys.org)—Researchers studying the cosmos have been stumped by an observation first made by Monique and François Spite of the Paris Observatory some thirty years ago; they noted that in studying the halos of older stars, that there should be more lithium 7 than there appeared to be in the universe. Since that time many studies have been conducted in trying to explain this apparent anomaly, but thus far no one has been able to come up with a reasonable explanation. And now, new research has deepened the mystery further by finding that the amount of lithium 7 in the path between us and a very young star aligns with would have been expected shortly after the Big Bang, but doesn’t take into account the creation of new amounts since that time. In their paper published in the journal Nature, Christopher Howk and colleagues suggest the discrepancy is troubling because it can’t be explained with normal astrophysics models.

New ideas add further mystery to why there is less lithium-7 in the universe than expected Estimates of the lithium abundance in the SMC interstellar medium and in other environments.

The predicted primordial 7Li abundance is four times that measured in the atmospheres of Galactic halo stars. This discrepancy could be caused by modification of surface lithium abundances during the stars’ lifetimes or by physics beyond the Standard Model that affects early nucleosynthesis. The lithium abundance of low-metallicity gas provides an alternative constraint on the primordial abundance and cosmic evolution of lithium that is not susceptible to the in situ modifications that may affect stellar atmospheres. Here we report observations of interstellar 7Li in the low-metallicity gas of the Small Magellanic Cloud, a nearby galaxy with a quarter the Sun’s metallicity. The present-day 7Li abundance of the Small Magellanic Cloud is nearly equal to the BBN predictions, severely constraining the amount of possible subsequent enrichment of the gas by stellar and cosmic-ray nucleosynthesis. Our measurements can be reconciled with standard BBN with an extremely fine-tuned depletion of stellar Li with metallicity. They are also consistent with non-standard BBN.Press release What’s really bothering all the scientists working on the lithium problem is the fact that it’s the only element that doesn’t fit with models of how things should have come to exist right after the Big Bang. All known elements occur in amounts predicted, except for lithium 7; there’s just a third as much as theorists think there should be. In trying to understand why, researchers have looked at old stars that surround the Milky Way galaxy, low mass bosons called axions, and more recently binary stars that are believed to harbor black holes. Unfortunately, such studies have only made the problem worse by suggesting that even more lithium 7 ought to be hanging around somewhere than was predicted earlier.In this new research the team looked at one single huge young star in the Small Magellanic Cloud, or more precisely, at the spectrum measured of gas and dust through which light must travel to get from there to here, and found that the amount of lithium 7 is consistent with theories that suggest how much of the element there should have been shortly after the Big Bang, which is unsettling because scientists know that more of it should have been created between then and now. Thus, these new results only add to the mystery of where all the rest of it is, or worse, why it wasn’t created in the first place as models suggest.
