NEW DELHI: At a time when the unemployability of engineers is a matter of concern, some newage universities are giving their students an edge with their international tie-ups with top universities like Yale, Georgia Tech, University of Oxford, among others. Universities like Bennett, BML Munjal, OP Jindal and Flame have tied up with the top foreign universities of the world to give students that much more of an advantage in the job market. Bennett’s tie-up with Babson Global and Georgia Tech makes their academic learning more rigorous with a tailored, curated syllabus. At OP Jindal, the over 100 students who visit international campuses through their tie-ups every year, end up gaining a global perspective. BML Munjal has a tie-up with Imperial College, London. According to an ET report, nearly 1.5 million Indians graduate from engineering colleges every year, and nearly four-fifths of them are unemployable.

Brzezinski warned against allowing Russia to control Ukraine because “Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.” Following Obama, Donald Trump came into office with a completely different mentality, willing to work with Russia and the Syrian government in combatting ISIS. Unsurprisingly, Brzezinski did not support Trump’s bid for the presidency and believed Trump’s foreign policy ideas lacked coherence . All that being said, just last year Brzezinski appeared to have changed his stance on global affairs and instead began to advocate a “global realignment” — a redistribution of global power — in light of the fact that the U.S. is no longer the global imperial power it once was. However, he still seemed to indicate that without America’s global leadership role, the result would be “global chaos,” so it seemed unlikely his change in perception was rooted in any actual meaningful change on the geopolitical chessboard.

Bush administration had another dream as well of a Pax Republicana , a one-party imperial state that would stretch across the American South deep into the Midwest, Southwest, and parts of the West, kneecapping the Democratic Party for an eternity and leaving that artifact of a two-party past confined to the countrys coastal areas. Their dream and it couldnt have been more immodest was to rule the world and its great remaining superpower for... well... more or less ever. They were to dominate America and America was to dominate everything else in a way no country in history not the Romans, not the British had ever done. As they saw it, in the wake of the implosion of the Soviet Union, there would be no other superpower, nor even a bloc of great powers, capable of obstructing Americas destined future.

Everything was ‘sanitized’”. “ We still have not recovered from the hangover caused by US colonialism ”, states, novelist Sionil Jose. US colonialism was nothing less than genocide. Alfonso Velázquez wrote: “Between the years 1899 and 1913 the United States of America wrote the darkest pages of its history. The invasion of the Philippines, for no other reason than acquiring imperial possessions, prompted a fierce reaction of the Filipino people. 126000 American soldiers were brought in to quell the resistance. As a result, 400000 Filipinoinsurrectosdied under American fire and one million Filipino civilians died because of the hardship, mass killings and scorched earth tactics carried out by the Americans. In total the American war against a peaceful people who fairly ignored the existence of the Americans until their arrival wiped out 1/6 of the population of the country.

He is also the one who has brought modernity to Russia, since he brought reform to his country, in particular by attracting French artists to the court, attracting engineers and artisans, and it is true that he was animated by a universal curiosity and one of the purposes of his trip was also to attract to his court, and Saint Petersburg in particular, a number of these French artists." SOT, Thierry Sarmant, Museum curator (French): "This medallion is the first family portrait in the western style of the Russian Imperial family. The men wear French-style clothes, and the women wear the court dress as it was worn in the court of Louis XIV."

Unlike advancing processing power, which follows a pre-set path, creating more energy dense batteries requires creating whole new fields of science. Processing power tends to follow something we call Moores Law, so every few years transistors get slightly smaller and therefore we can fit more onto a chip and get more processing power, explained Dr. Billy Wu, an Electrochemical Science and Engineering lecturer at Imperial College Londons Dyson School of Engineering. In microprocessors, its all about making things smaller. In lithium-ion batteries, if you want to get an improvement in energy density, so how long your phone lasts, then you need to fundamentally change the materials that you put inside of it. This isnt as easy as simply switching out certain chemicals in favor of others.

Space Shield Human beings have known for quite some time that our behavior has a significant influence on our planet. In fact, during the 20th century, humanity’s impact on the natural environment and climate has become so profound that some geologists began to refer to the modern era as the “Anthropocene”. In this age, human agency is the most deterministic force on the planet. But according to a comprehensive new study by an Anglo-American team of researchers, human beings might be shaping the near-space environment as well. According to the study, radio communications, EM radiation from nuclear testing and other human actions have led to the creation of a barrier around Earth that is shielding it against high-energy space radiation. The study, which was published in the journal Space Science Reviews under the titleAnthropogenic Space Weather “, was conducted by a team of scientists from the US and Imperial College, London.
