that rules out a collision Images from a ground-based radar show that the craft’s own radar antenna and solar array are both intact On 15 April the French Space Agency spun round its recently-launched Pleiades Earth observation satellite to point upward and snap an even more detailed picture of Envisat from just 100 kilometers away This again showed no sign of damage and gave no clues to what is wrong The European Space Agency (ESA) had hoped that Envisat would last another couple of years until it launches its next-generation Sentinel satellites starting next year In the meantime researchers must find other sources of data ESA already has an agreement to get radar imaging data from Canada’s Radarsat Those using Envisat’s radar altimeter also have alternatives "We at least for the time being have [ESA’s] CryoSat-2 to ensure continuity of polar altimetry" says climate physicist Seymour Laxon of University College London But for those studying air quality and atmospheric science "there is nothing to replace [Envisat’s instruments]" says Robert Meisner of ESA’s Earth observation program The next generation of these instruments are due to fly on Sentinel 3 slated for launch in 2014 "Envisat was a big success We celebrated its tenth birthday just a few weeks ago We’re disappointed that it’s just gone" says Meisner Ground controllers are continuing to try different ways to re-establish contact and are not saying how long it will be before they give up If the mission has to be abandoned Meisner says the craft is in a stable orbit and is unlikely to re-enter the atmosphere for 100 years Written by Ashwini Deshpande | Published: October 14 2017 1:39 am Drèze writes elegantly and passionately shorn of rhetoric arguing that we see India from the lens of the marginalised Top News Book: Sense And Solidarity – Jholawala Economics for Everyone Author: Jean Drèze Publication: Permanent Black Pages: 354 Price: Rs 795 Beautifully produced with a catchy and moving introduction this volume is a collection of Jean Drèze’s op-ed pieces written between 2000-2017 The original pieces are grouped by theme with a short new introduction to each section The material in the book would be familiar to most regular newspaper readers; yet this collection is a pleasure to read Drèze writes elegantly and passionately shorn of rhetoric arguing that we see India from the lens of the marginalised Drèze arguably India’s best known action-oriented researcher is well-known for his active role in the formulation and/or support of several of contemporary India’s social security schemes — the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) Right to Food or the National Food Security Act Right to Information and so on (Incidentally in the book he disparages the media spotlight on him as the “architect” of NREGA and suggests that if one has to assign that role to a single individual for what was essentially a massive collective effort it should be assigned to Nikhil Dey) For someone who is seen as an unbridled champion of government provision of social security Drèze is candid about the sorry state of government delivery of social services of corruption leakages and all the familiar problems with government schemes However his solution is to fix these problems rather than abandon the schemes altogether His analysis of why these programmes are plagued with constant trouble is summed up in his pithy analysis of NREGA: “it is a pro-worker law implemented by an anti-worker system” This would be true of a host of protective policies including affirmative action another instance of a social policy the implementation of which is left to the mercies of those who have a visceral hatred for it and can’t wait to see it fail He takes the attacks on him and his ilk of “jholawalas” — a term used to rubbish the views of those seen as bleeding-heart sentimental and naive Lefties who refuse to recognize the hard truths trade-offs and constraints of policy making — head-on and raises a set of hard-hitting counter questions He attacks the clear and deep influence of corporate India on state policy and what that is doing to the poor especially the rural poor Why is carrying a corporate briefcase innately more respectable than carrying a jhola he asks metaphorically as he questions repeatedly the ivory tower view of India both of policy makers as well as of professional economists which focuses on the privileged the powerful and the rich It is worth noting though that Drèze himself has worked with members of the economics royalty what with two Nobel laureates as his co-authors Like all professional establishments economists too have their share of the good the bad and the ugly and it would have been nice to see an acknowledgement of that nuance The articles question the current narrow view of what constitutes valid evidence for policy and make a strong case for fieldwork-based evidence Drèze’s arguments about the power of action-oriented research to effect a positive policy transformation raise a larger point Professionally produced evidence using secondary data and field-based evidence informed by personal observation need not be seen as dichotomous as Drèze seems to suggest His own journey and involvement in the larger cause of the marginalised and the underprivileged reveals what good fieldwork can achieve provided one looks in the right places and for the right signs However ideological blinkers are not the monopoly of ivory towers: there is plenty of dogmatic or narrow-minded stuff that passes as voices from the ground; equally there is path-breaking and visionary work done by professional scholars including economists who carry neither a corporate briefcase nor a jhola It all boils down to ideology And that brings me to my final question The evidence about the inter-state variation in the effectiveness of social service delivery especially the positive turn-around by a state like Chhattisgarh that otherwise supports exploitative policies towards tribals or the consistently good performance by Tamil Nadu — what does it tell us about the political economy of state intervention What combination of factors including political ideology and caste-class background of the ruling elite ensures that a scheme works in one place and not in another How does globalisation shape both the evolution of policy (ie dictate what is possible) and the realities of implementation The essays in this book zoom in and show us very important detail warts and all which mainstream media and government propaganda constantly try to hide To answer the larger political economy questions however one would need to zoom out step back and join the dots The writer is professor of economics Delhi University For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Express News Service | Ahmedabad | Published: January 30 2010 4:02 am Related News The political wing of Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Service ((AMTS) has come up with proposals which if approved will add Rs 6 crore to the Rs 261-crore budget presented by the Transport Manager The major proposals given by the political wing include procurement of 101 CNG buses and 400 diesel buses in coming months while the number of the private buses is being reduced from 526 to 375 Transport Committee Chairman Pravinbhai Patel said the city bus service had accumulated loss to the tune of Rs 400 crore and that it was increasing by Rs 5 crore a month The salary outgo for its 5750 staff is Rs 10 crore per monthhe said Patel said that in the budget year 2010-11the bus termini at Lal DarwajaKalupurManinagarSarangpur and Vasna would be upgraded and would have passenger facilities As of now825 lakh commuters use 763 buses on 157 routes in the city areas The steps proposed in the budget include installation of software for tracking busesbiometric attendance systemtraining of drivers for CNG busesintroduction of public information display systemcentralised facility for redressal of passenger grievances and installation of solar lighting systems for energy conservation For all the latest Ahmedabad News download Indian Express App More Related NewsPawar acknowledged that the sharp exchanges in Shirur are getting shriller by the day.
