83 runs from 66 balls India won the toss and Virat Kohli had no doubt in his mind in deciding to bat on a flat yet slow Chennai wicket The total of 281 for 7 will become a challenging one for Australia as the pitch will only get slower and hopefully there will be no dew India’s innings was a mix of domination of fast bowlers and batsmen alike Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile rocked

tax raids on chief secretary Ramamohana Rao’s residence and 12 other locations in Chennai Bengaluru and Andhra Pradesh That it was time for Tamil Nadu to clean up its act Within 24 hours Girija Vaidyanathan an officer with a no-nonsense work ethic was appointed as his successor The political class reportedly wanted to wait till an FIR was filed but was advised that the raid had already dented the image of the government and any delay would only reflect poorly on the AIADMK In appointing Vaidyanathan the Tamil Nadu government has corrected the wrong that was committed in June when Rao a 1985 batch IAS officer was appointed superseding 17 officers In fact Vaidyanathan who belongs to the 1981 batch was superseded even when K Gnanidesikan of the 1982 batch was appointed as chief secretary before Ramamohana Rao Gnanidesikan had superseded 12 officers when he was appointed in December 2014 Vaidyanathan now is the senior-most IAS officer working in Tamil Nadu at the moment Only Economic Affairs Secretary in the Government of India Shaktikanta Das of the 1980 batch who is looking after the entire demonetisation exercise is senior to her In going by the rule book and avoiding whimsical arbitrariness Tamil Nadu has done the right thing What’s more Vaidyanathan at 57 has another two and a half years of service left Girja Vaidyanathan Picture courtesy: Facebook/Girja Vaidyanathan The new chief secretary hails from an illustrious family from Nagercoil in south Tamil Nadu She is the daughter of S Venkitaramanan who was Reserve Bank of India governor from 1990 to 1992 in charge of India’s central bank when liberalisation began A PhD in health economics from IIT Madras Vaidyanathan’s forte has been the health and environment fields Her colleagues in the bureaucracy give her credit for the fact that Tamil Nadu does very well on indices of fertility rate infant and maternal mortality rate With Vaidyanathan’s posting the first step towards flushing out the muck has been taken Things had gotten so rotten in Tamil Nadu’s political and bureaucratic ecosystem that corruption had become a joint venture Vaidyanathan’s tenure is significant because this is an officer with honest reputation and she now has the responsibility to win back the Tamil Nadu bureaucracy its badge of honour A look at the track record of Vaidyanathan’s two predecessors would give you a sense of the rot in the system It is not just Rao who is seen as having sullied the reputation of babu-dom in the state Gnanidesikan was suspended after being removed as chief secretary on charges linked to beach sand mining in southern Tamil Nadu The fact that Jayalalithaa chose two allegedly tainted officers for the top job reflects poorly on her judgement and the kind of government she ran Because Vaidyanathan’s brother-in-law is BJP leader and popular actor SVeShekher it is being speculated that the NDA government at the Centre may have had a hand in her appointment Votaries of this theory say this is because Vaidyanathan never got plum postings during AIADMK regimes But that would be belittling Vaidyanathan’s abilities "Girija Vaidyanathan’s appointment is a balm for the wounds of honest bureaucrats in Tamil Nadu We have had too many of the pliable and wheeler-dealer appointments that operated like a mafia” says M G Devasahayam former IAS officer Senior bureaucrats point out that many of Tamil Nadu’s problems arise because the chief secretary also holds the position of the Vigilance commissioner This means a corrupt chief secretary and officers who obey his diktat can get away with murder because there is no one to challenge them within the Tamil Nadu administrative system The state in the interest of transparency and to clean up the dirt would do well to appoint another senior officer to the vigilance post to facilitate independent probes Over the years in Tamil Nadu especially under Jayalalithaa the post of the chief secretary was sought to be devalued with the Advisor to the government having a decisive say in matters of governance Vaidyanathan has her task cut out to restore to the chief secretary’s office its rightful place in the administration instead of being reduced to a mere post office between the chief minister’s office and other departments Admittedly Vaidyanathan takes charge at a difficult time The state is in a state of political flux after Jayalalithaa’s demise and the AIADMK’s attempt to prop up VK Sasikala not just as party chief but even as chief minister O Panneerselvam is not seen as an assertive CM even though he is seen to have New Delhi’s backing Vaidyanathan will have to hit the ground running Chandigarh: Sponsored advertisements on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter would be

ended almost 35 billion years ago (Source: NASA) Top News Shedding new insight into the geological evolution of Mercury researchers have found that major volcanic activity on the planet Mercury most likely ended about 35 billion years ago “These new results validate 40-year-old predictions about global cooling and contraction shutting off volcanism” Paul Byrne Assistant Professor at the North Carolina State University “Now that we can account for observations of the volcanic and tectonic properties of Mercury we have a consistent story for its geological formation and evolution as well as new insight into what happens when planetary bodies cool and contract” Byrne noted There are two types of volcanic activity: effusive and explosive Explosive volcanism is often a violent event that results in large ash and debris eruptions such as the Mount Saint Helens eruption in 1980 Effusive volcanism refers to widespread lava flows that slowly pour out over the landscape — believed to be a key process by which planets form their crusts Determining the ages of effusive volcanic deposits can give researchers a handle on a planet’s geological history For example effusive volcanism was active a few hundred million years ago on Venus a few million years ago on Mars and it still takes place on Earth today Until now the duration of effusive volcanic activity on Mercury made of the same materials as these other planets had not been known In this study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters the researchers determined when the bulk of Mercury’s crust-forming volcanism ended by using photographs of the surface imaged by NASA’s MESSENGER mission Because there are no physical samples from the planet that could be used for radiometric dating the researchers used crater size-frequency analysis in which the number and size of craters on the planet’s surface are placed into established mathematical models to calculate absolute ages for effusive volcanic deposits on Mercury According to their results major volcanism on Mercury stopped at around 35 billion years ago in stark contrast to the volcanic ages found for Venus Mars and Earth “There is a huge geological difference between Mercury and Earth Mars or Venus” Byrne said For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: IANS | New York | Published: February 8 2017 6:20 pm Mast

News Females are more vulnerable to certain stress-related and allergic diseases such as migraines because of distinct differences found in mast cells a type of white blood cell that is part of the immune system says a study Mast cells are an important category of immune cells because they play a key role in stress-related health issues that are typically more common in women such as allergic disorders auto-immune diseases migraines and irritable bowel syndrome or IBS “Over 8000 differentially expressed genes were found in female mast cells compared to male mast cells” said lead researcher Adam Moeser Associate Professor at Michigan State University in the US “While male and female mast cells have the same sets of genes on their chromosomes with the exception of the XY sex chromosomes the way the genes act vary immensely between the sexes” Moeser noted A further in-depth analysis of the genes within the RNA genome — a primary building block in all forms of life — revealed an increase in activity that is linked to the production and storage of inflammatory substances according to the study published in the journal Biology of Sex Differences These substances can create a more aggressive response in the body and result in disease “This could explain why women or men are more or less vulnerable to certain types of diseases” Moeser said With this new understanding of how different genes act scientists could eventually start developing new sex-specific treatments that target these immune cells and stop the onset of disease Moeser said For all the latest Lifestyle News

Top News I really underestimated the Zebronics UFO Bluetooth speaker But boy was I surprised As the name suggests the Zebronics UFO does look like a quintessential flying saucer our friendly Martian would come to Earth on The 605 gms unit is beautiful to look at and has a fair build quality The speaker comes with an audio cable and charging cable Apart from Bluetooth you can connect to the speakers using a USB port an AUX port or a TF card slot – all of which worked perfectly for me The speakers were easy enough to pair to my phone the first time What’s good After I had played the first song I realised there was more to the Zebronics UFO than I initially gave it credit The music was loud crisp and detailed Since the UFO is not a front facing speaker and instead a sit-flat speaker you can place them anywhere in a room in whatever position you prefer And did I mention they are loud I feel uncomfortable sitting close to the speakers when they are at full volume Being a Rock music guy through-and-through I found that the speakers were more than well equipped to play songs from Rock greats like Metallica AC/DC and others Lyrics on the speakers are on point with no distortion or lack of depth The speaker manages to balance the treble and bass together quite well Another song I really love is an instrumental track that I have which I often use to check out bass quality of headphones speakers – the works and to my surprise the UFO passed the test and then some This was the same song that left me disappointed with Bose’s Soundlink Mini II recently Zebronics wireless handset will let you make or receive a call when connected to a mobile device The distance to which the speaker stays connected to a Bluetooth device is pretty decent I had no problem playing music on the device for four hours straight and really enjoyed my time with it In fact I made a full evening out of listening to the entire playlist of Coke Studio on Youtube with my family – with a lot of appreciation given to the speakers Let’s talk about the cordless handset for a second It looks like a standard handset that you get with a cordless phone with a small screen inside showing you the battery Bluetooth connection and a message reading ‘Ready’ (When connected) If you have connected your phone to the speaker and get a call you can simply pick up the handset to attend the call (leaving your phone be) I do not understand why you wouldn’t just pick up your mobile but hey I am not judging What’s not so good Saying all this there are still a few shortcomings with the Zebronics UFO You cannot play the speakers on the absolutely maximum volume as there is a certain level of distortion But that doesn’t mean that it is not super loud on 95 per cent volume The other thing that annoyed me with the UFO was the reconnection to the device when it disconnected on Bluetooth There is a power button slider that needs to be turned on along with the centre button on the handset top It is a little confusing to reconnect to the device sometimes but I simply refuse to read the manual to understand what I did wrong – I mean who does I can’t even find where I threw it along with the box Zebronics UFO comes with a 1400 mAh battery – 1200 mAh for the speakers and 200 mAh for the handset The cordless handset useful or not has one serious issue The volume of the headset is barely audible and my experience using it wasn’t out of this world in anyway get it – UFO (out of this world) Well in any case you can pick up the handset and dial a number to make a call as well It’s a neat thing to have but as far as I am concerned – unnecessary The UFO comes with a 1400 mAh battery – 1200 mAh for the speakers and 200 mAh for the handset Considering that it doesn’t show me when the speaker is fully charged it ran for me untethered for somewhere close to four hours while connected to Bluetooth Verdict For someone who himself is in the market for a Bluetooth speaker I would recommend the speakers Maybe I’ll buy one for myself soon enough The speaker is priced at Rs 2999 and I think it is a fair price for the good experience I had with them For all the latest Technology

netted his first goal of the tournament inside eight minutes at the home of Spartak Moscow Raphael Guerreiro’s towering cross from the left flank hung in the air and found Ronaldo who rose at the far post to head back across Igor Akinfeev It was a miserable start for the Russian skipper who was making his 100th international appearance Ronaldo’s goal was the highlight of the first period although he forced Akinfeev into a save from point-blank range with a shot midway through the half Soon after the break Akinfeev kept Russia in the game with a one-handed reflex save from four metres out to deny Andre Silva’s bullet header But Portugal then lost Guerreiro to injury with coach Fernando Santos conceding the Borussia Dortmund player had been taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg The

Taipei Top News Sanjivani Jadhav won a silver in the women’s 10000 metres at the World University Games in Taipei The 20-year-old is one of the rising stars of Indian athletics and she gave an indication of her talent when she won a bronze in the 5000 metres at the Asian Athletics Championships in Bhubaneswar in July This is the second major medal for the youngster from Nashik who was also a medalist at the World School Olympiad Daria Maslova of Kyrgyztan won the gold with a timing of 33:1927 and Jadhav came second at 33:2200 The strides Sanjivani has made in just over a month can be gauged from the fact that she had clocked 332835 to finish fifth in Bhubaneswar but shaved off over five seconds at the 29th Summer Universiade What made her second place impressive was that Maslova had the experience of competing at the World Athletics Championships earlier this month Sanjivani also had to stave off the threat from the Japanese duo of Hosoda and Yuki Munehisa The latter had the fastest personal best in the field (31:5846) but finished fourth in 33:4045 When it mattered Sanjivani didn’t fade away as she was able to maintain her momentum when she and Maslova broke away from the field with 600 metres left The bronze medal at the Asian meet was her first at a senior international meet Shortly after winning the 5000 metres bronze at the Asian Championships Sanjivani who hadn’t qualified for the World Championships had said that her target was to finish on the podium at the Summer Universiade However for all her promise on the athletics track she began as a wrestler It was coach Vijender Singh who spotted her during a local meet and convinced her that her future was in middle and long-distance running A young Sanjivani was coaxed by her grandfather who was a wrestler to grapple But guided by Vijender Sanjivani was soon winning medals at the district level and never looked back The coach says he went by a hunch because Sanjivani hailed from a belt which also produced middle and long distance runners like Kavita Raut an Asian Games and Commonwealth Games medalist “She is still just 20 and has already proved that she has the ability to win medals at international events She has been consistently improving and is one for the future” Vijender said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsOur roving reporter trailed
