At least 50 northern Tamil youth, including 11 former LTTE members, have been enlisted to serve the Sri Lanka Army’s volunteer force, the military spokesman said today. They will not be wearing the military uniforms, but would be entitled to pension and other related benefits, military spokesman Brigadier Sumith Atapattu said, adding that they will be deployed for agricultural work carried out by the Army. At the end of the three-decade-old separatist war, around 11,000 LTTE cadres had turned themselves over to the Army. Atapattu said there will be more Tamil youth recruited to the military in the near future. Prabhakaran, 54, was shot dead by Sri Lankan special forces as he tried to stage a dramatic breakout from the army encirclement, a military spokesman said.

more-inAsteroids play the role of time capsules showing what molecules originally existed in our solar system, and may help explain how life started on Earth, a study suggests. Finding complex molecules in asteroids provides the strongest evidence that such compounds were present on the Earth before life formed, said Nicholas Hud from Georgia Institute of Technology in the US. “We can look to the asteroids to help us understand what chemistry is possible in the universe,” said Mr. Hud. Molecules and lifeMr. Hud believes there are many possible ways that the molecules of life could have formed. “There is a tradeoff between the simplicity of forming these molecules and how close these molecules are to those found in contemporary life,” said Mr. Hud.

We don’t see Venom in his sleek black suit, nor do we see how Brock actually becomes engulfed by Venom.

Kevin James, that one guy who did those vague films, renamed the film Tom Hardy: The Movie.

This is what greets you on the home page of the Center for Humane Technology. And they plan to do this with what they term “humane design” — design that tries its best to make sure people are not addicted to technology and also by increasing their attention spans. They have been around since 2013, but I heard of them only recently, thanks to a conversation on Silk — one of India’s oldest mailing lists. The only way startups will consistently start choosing the latter option is if societal and economic factors become such that they make the humane design the rational choice. In a country like India, the third party might have to be the government, providing incentives to startups to make the humane choice.
