  1. Yesterday was a huge day for people who celebrate science. It'll go down in history as a day when the first ever real image of black hole was revealed. But you know what? It's an even bigger day for female scientists across the globe because our first direct look at a black hole, though a bit blurry, is courtesy of a young lady named Katie Bouman. That's right, we earthlings got to see an image of the black hole as seen through the eyes of the Event Horizon Telescope, which is essentially an array of eight radio telescopes around the world working together. Left: MIT computer scientist Katie Bouman w/stacks of hard drives of black hole image data. Right: MIT computer scientist Margaret Hamilton w/the code she wrote that helped put a man on the moon.

She was also the one who led testing to verify the images, which by itself is a huge task. The data from eight of those telescopes were collected on hundreds of hard drives and flown in to a central processing center. It was apparently set across manually because there was too much of it to send over the internet. It was in June last year, when all the data had arrived at the center. While speaking to Time, Katie said, “We all watched as the images appeared on our computers“. The ring came so easily. It was unbelievable.” © Event Horizon Telescope Six years ago when Katie had joined the team, she apparently didn't know a thing about black holes. After all, her background was from computer science and electrical engineering. That, however, didn't keep her away from “coming up with ways to see or measure things that are invisible,” she said. As soon as the first image of black hole was revealed, an image showing Katie next to a stack of hard drives went viral, and rightfully so. This woman deserves all the recognition. Bouman hasn't spoken to anyone else, but she CNN that “No one of us could've done it alone. It came together because of lots of different people from many backgrounds.” Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press. Amazing work. And here's to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) ð¥ð¥âï¸ pic.twitter.com/wcPhB6E5qK — Tamy Emma Pepin (@TamyEmmaPepin) April 10, 2019 Interestingly, Bouman delivered a TED Talk back in 2016 called “How to take a picture of a black hole”, where she noted that the first ever picture of a black hole will come down to an international team of scientists, an Earth-sized telescope and an algorithm to put all the data together and reveal the final image.
  2. A chat show which is supposed to entertain the audience ended up leaving a bitter taste for all the fans of 'Koffee With Karan'. When Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul made their much hyped, much awaited appearance on KJo's show, fans were eager to see some bromance and hear some dressing room secrets of the men in blue. However, the comments and remarks made by cricketer Hardik Pandya were regarded as sexist, misogynistic and plain tasteless in nature. Hardik Pandya : When i lost my virginity, i told them, "Mai Aj kar kay aya ho" pic.twitter.com/6HfX0zRWHy — Thakur (@ThakurHassam) January 6, 2019 This is just an iota of the confidence that was shown by Hardik on the show which upset the viewers to a limit that only did BCCI had to take action against them and impose a ban, but the episode had to be pulled down as well. Amidst this wave of controversy, the host himself was mum for quite a while until recently when he opened up on the episode and issued his own apology for the same. Karan Johar breaks his silence for the 1st time post Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul controversy on his #KoffeeWithKaran show. Full interview #ComingUp only on ET NOW. Stay tuned! #Davos @karanjohar @SupriyaShrinate @hardikpandya7 @klrahul11 #WEF2019 @wef pic.twitter.com/HERG69Jq5r — ET NOW (@ETNOWlive) January 23, 2019 Karan clearly mentioned that he regrets what happened to the boys and justified that how anyone associated with the episode had nothing to complain about it but being a responsible person, he wanted to share his two cents on it. The controversy cost the boys a ban from the India-Australia series which they were initially supposed to play. Even though Hardik issued an apology on social media, people were actually done with his thoughts.
  3. Labeling foods as 'good' and 'bad' is a big mistake we all make. We look at some foods as 'super' while others as Satan's child. One particular macronutrient that has been widely demonized and usually divided into the good and bad categories is carbohydrates. This is mainly because of uneducated fitness gurus who go about the town, painting it red with misinformation. These gurus preach giving up carbs or going very low on carbs to lose weight and ultimately get fit. The Good And Bad Carbohydrates © Thinkstock Images Another myth purported by these gurus is labeling carbs as good and bad. According to them, some carbs are good while some are bad. While in reality, most of them would not even know what carbohydrates are, what they are made of and how are they digested by the body. In this article, I am going to talk about what carbohydrates are and what are the types of carbohydrates. What Are Carbohydrates? Carbohydrates are the primary source of fuel for your body and provide 4 kilo calories of energy per gram. Carbohydrates are primarily found in plant-based foods, such as grains, beans, legumes, fruits and vegetables, etc which contain many nutrients. The Classification Of Carbohydrates Depends On Their Chemical Structure. There are two types of carbohydrates: © Pixabay 1) Simple Simple carbohydrates only consist of one or two carbon rings. Because of their small size and short length, simple carbs digest very quickly and rapidly increase blood sugar. These carbs only take a few minutes to fuel the body and are good for people who need a quick burst of energy. Simple carbs are often mistaken as fattening and are often blamed for obesity when in reality they just provide the energy quicker than complex carbs. Being a major source of energy, they are found in many foods like fruits, dairy, honey, etc. 2) Complex Complex carbs, on the other hand, are long, complex chains of sugar molecules strung together. They are digested slowly when compared to simple carbohydrates mainly due to the presence of fiber in them. They are found in foods such as peas, beans, whole grains, and vegetables. Why Carbs Aren't Making You Fat (Too Many Calories Are) Both simple and complex carbs are converted into glucose which is used as energy by your body. Unused glucose is stored in the liver and glycogen to be used later. So, carbs are not converted to fat directly as some of these social media gurus preach. Only if you eat in a caloric surplus, extra carbs might be stored as fat. The funny thing is even when you eat in a surplus, what is converted to body fat first is the dietary fat that you eat and not carbs. This process of converting carbs into fat is called de novo lipogenesis which your body does not prefer. © Pixabay So, eat your carbs, as carbs are your body's primary fuel source (and your brain's), and nutrient dense being very good sources of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals and should not be avoided unless you are suffering from any medical condition that forces you to do so.

  4. The use of Cryptocurrency has been on the rise in the last few years and we've already witnessed a massive trend wherein people are considering it to be an easy source of quick earnings. While enthusiasts are envisioning it to be the future of trade, critics and government authorities haven't been very accepting of it. While people expect it to solve issues of mankind ranging from poverty to financial crisis, a study finds that if bitcoin continues to become more widely adopted, the huge amount of electricity used to trade and mine the cryptocurrency could push global temperatures above 2 degrees Celsius by 2033. © Reuters Firstly, the mining process consumes a humungous amount of energy. Bitcoins are “mined” in a process that is computationally demanding, with heavy hardware requirements that suck electricity. Everything's fine if the electricity grid is connected to a renewable source of energy like a hydroelectric dam or wind turbine, but becomes worrisome if fossil fuels are being consumed instead. The study by researchers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa found that the cumulative emissions from bitcoin would be enough to push global warming beyond 2C in 22 years. If the average rate of technology uptake is used instead, this number is closer to 16 years. © Medium The researchers have clearly stated that their intention isn't to predict the usability of Bitcoin's but to measure and evaluate the side-effects. Randi Rollins, a PhD student who studies the impacts of climate change said, “This type of analysis should be performed when any new technology is under development. Being aware of the consequences of future technology development could go a long way in reducing emissions and preventing further damage to the environment.” The 2015 Paris Agreement commits 195 nations to stop global temperatures rising more than 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. A 2-degree rise in temperature could reduce water availability in some areas by up to 30 percent according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). © Medium To come down with this conclusion, the scientists analysed the power efficiency of computers used in bitcoin mining, the location of miners around the world and the CO2 emissions from electricity in those countries. Even though the relation between Bitcoin mining and climate change sounds too far-fetched, we can't ignore the resources it takes up even in the shorter term. Not only is high-end hardware required to process mining, but an equivalent amount of power goes into cooling down the system. In 2017 alone, the use of bitcoin produced 69 million metric tons of carbon dioxide - about the same as the state of Arkansas. © Reuters "Clearly, any further development of cryptocurrencies should critically aim to reduce electricity demand, if the potentially devastating consequences of 2C of global warming are to be avoided,” said Professor Camilo Mora, who led the study.
