They conquer the unthinkable by their sheer confidence. What if the eyes turn blind? The other senses take charge and guide the rest. It is walking into the darkness, literally for the blessed.

CELEBS ELUDE 10K RUN Osama Salman

t was celebrities galore all these years at the 10K run. For the first time, on Sunday, most of them stayed away. “We too did not call them,” says organiser D Suresh Babu. Apart from him, the other two VIPs spotted on the opening dais were Speaker Nadendla Manohar and Police Commissioner AK Khan. “We have intentionally avoided invitation to celebrities. Initially, we used to invite them to popularise the event. Now, we want the 10K run to

survive on its own,” Suresh Babu told Postnoon. Celebrities were not important any more, he said on the previous day’s press conference too. “This is for the people and by the people,” he asserted. What’s the in-thing behind this? What’s more, there is a dash of Telangana agitation to it. Agitators marked their presence with permission from the organisers. Every kilometre, they wanted to represent one district each to bring the full complement of 10 Telangana districts demanding a separate State.

Jealousy responsible

Jealousy is the main factor in such cases. Even kith and kin or acquaintances can't see someone close to them flourishing and hence develop a grudge against them. Moreover, this is the easiest way of earning. If they want to earn money by working it will take years,” said P Jyothi Raja, a senior child psychologist. “Another important thing,” she says, “ is that earlier people used to lead a simpler life by not revealing their actual wealth. But, now-a-days people are showing off their wealth by celebrating big, which is invoking frustration among others. Basically human tendency is 'If I don't have, then even he shouldn't have it.' They loose control and tend to commit crime. At this stage they are not even bothered about the consequences or that it may strain their family relations.” But why target children. "Children are the safe targets as the resistance is minimum. Children blindly trust them and can't make out their plot. If someone hurts them physically they may forget as time passes, but if they hurt someone close to them, especially their children, the cuts are deeper."

They conquer the unthinkable by their sheer confidence. What if the eyes turn blind? The other senses take charge and guide the rest. It is walking into the darkness, literally for the blessed. For the less fortunate, however, every tour they guide is an occasion to demonstrate their innate talent and strength, Dialogue in the Dark, located at Level 5 of InOrbit Mall, is part of a global chain and India's first, writes A Saye Sekhar

Seeing alone isn’t believing HYDERABAD: When the sixfoot-tall Soham says the last best thing he remembers to have seen was his mother, he is surely touching a sentimental cord. Soham Svarna wasn’t born with blindness. He turned visually challenged just before he entered the age of adolescence. Yet, his grit and determination makes the visitors awestruck. He is one among the 15-odd visually-challenged youths bubbling with enthusiasm to induce an experience of being blind among those who can see at Dialogue in the Dark, established on the Level 5 at InOrbit Mall at Madhapur less than a year ago. It isn't an amusement park or an art exhibition to titillate the basic instincts. It is a concept woven around "social inclusion of marginalised people around the globe." What’s it all about? What does it feel like when you turn visually challenged? You give rest to your eyes and your other sensory organs will obviously assume charge.

articulately. It’s always amazing to watch a visually-challenged person walking past every obstacle with the help of a stick toting it to the left and the right. Sighted people, torn out of their social routines, are shown the way by the blind. The Dialogue in The Dark is an exhibition created by Andreas Heinecke, a German journalist, in 1988 with the first premier show at Frankfurt in Germany. He actually created the Dialogue in the Dark while developing a programme for a colleague who lost his eyesight.

Team Anna has its back against wall Plea for probe into CWG graft Delhi Police files FIR against Kiran Bedi cases dismissed by Delhi court

NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Saturday dismissed the plea of members of Team Anna and others seeking a direction to the probe agencies to investigate and lodge an FIR for alleged corruption in the Commonwealth Games-related cases.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Amit Bansal, who rejected the application for registration of the FIR, however, said if Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal, Swami Agnivesh, yoga guru Ramdev and others want to furnish any further evidence in support of their claims, they could submit it on February 7. “The application is dismissed. As far as CWG scam is concerned, I am not passing any order now. The date fixed for further evidence, if any, will be February 7,” the court said. The complainants had alleged that despite massive corruption in the Games-related works, probe agencies have not been probing all the cases. They alleged contracts were awarded for Games-related projects without following any proPTI cedure.

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police today (Sunday) registered a case against former top cop and Team Anna member Kiran Bedi for alleged cheating and misappropriation of funds in collusion with foreign companies and foundations. “We have registered a case against her (Kiran Bedi) under Sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (crime) Ashok Chand said. A Delhi court had on Saturday directed police to file a case against Bedi on a complaint filed by petitioner Devinder Chauhan. Chauhan alleged that Bedi cheated various paramilitary forces and state police organisations on the pretext of providing free computer training

Youths disrupt Rahul’s public meeting in UP KUSHINAGAR: Some youths, allegedly belonging to the Samajwadi Party, created a ruckus at a public meeting of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi soon after he completed his speech at Padrauna here on Saturday. The trouble arose when the youths entered Udit Narayan Inter College where Rahul’s meeting was underway and chanted slogans and distributed pamphlets, official sources said. The youths took off their shirts

immediately after Rahul ended his speech displaying slogans like: ‘UP people are not beggars’ emblazoned on their vests. A scuffle ensued between the Congress workers and the youths in which the two sides hurled chairs at each other, the sources said. Some youths were reportedly injured in the clash, they said. A few youths were detained by police in this PTI connection.

to troopers’ families under the banner of her NGO India Vision Foundation. Bedi said she was not surprised by the development and it only strengthened her resolve to do more. “I am informed an FIR is registered against me. For me now nothing is a surprise!” Bedi said on micro-blogging site Twitter. “It only strengthens my resolve to do more,” she added.

Bedi was caught in a controversy last month when it was revealed that she allegedly gave inflated travel bills to various social organisations and educational institutions that invited her for lectures. She admitted she charged various NGOs business class airfare while buying the lower class airline tickets, but said the excess money went to her IANS own NGO.

Global firms may face hurdles NEW DELHI: With BJP, JD(U), AIADMK, BSP and Trinamool Congress strongly opposing FDI in multi-brand retail, global chains may face problems in opening stores in 28 of the 53 cities which have been thrown open to retailers like Walmart and Carrefour. The parties and alliances ruling in 11 major states have strongly opposed the decision of the Central government to allow foreign direct investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail which is dominated by small traders. According to 2011 Census, there are 28 cities in 11 states ruled by the parties opposed to the decision. These include

big cities like Bangalore, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Patna, Allahabad and Bhopal, which have over one million populations — the threshold set by Cabinet while approving FDI in retail on November 24. Excluding Punjab, BJP and NDA rule in eight states: Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Chattisgarh, Jharkhand, Uttarakhand, Bihar and Himachal Pradesh. BJP indicated that states where the party is in power may not permit foreign stores. Besides, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati has already stated that no foreign retailers would be PTI allowed in her state.

US in damage control mode after deadly friendly fire ISLAMABAD: The United States moved to salvage ties with Pakistan after NATO air strikes on border outposts killed up to 26 soldiers and plunged relations into crisis, backing a full probe and expressing condolences. Pakistan said it was reviewing its alliance with the US and NATO after the lethal strike which it branded a violation of international law, summoning the US ambassador Cameron Munter and warning of serious repercussions. It also announced the closure of its Afghan border to NATO, shutting down a supplies lifeline for 130,000 USled foreign troops fighting the Taliban, and called on the US to leave a remote air base reportedly used by CIA drones. The NATO force in Afghanistan admitted it was ‘highly likely’ that its aircraft caused the deaths in Saturday’s pre-dawn strike, inflaming US-Pakistani relations still reeling from the May killing of Osama bin Laden.

Britain’s contingency plan LONDON: Britain is stepping up its contingency plans in case the eurozone breaks up, even though analysts believe that only Greece is currently at risk of departing the 17-nation bloc over the debt crisis. A senior official at Britain’s financial watchdog, the Financial Services Authority, said on Thursday that Britain’s banks were drawing up plans for the possible dismantling of the eurozone, but did not elaborate. Andrew Bailey, deputy head of the FSA’s prudential business unit and an executive director of the Bank of England, said banks such as HSBC and Barclays could not afford to ignore the possibility of a breakup.”We are talking to them about it and they are doing (something about) it,” Bailey told reporters in London.”We have talked to them already and will be talking to them again.” Bailey said at a retail banking conference “Good risk management means planning for unlikely but severe scenarios, and this means that we must not ignore the prospect of the disorderly departure of some countries from the eurozone.

he business of politics and politics of business got intertwined so much that none can disentangle them to delineate between the two. Egging his trusted lieutenant K Yerran Naidu to implead himself in a public interest litigation (PIL) taken on file by the Andhra Pradesh High Court consequent upon a letter written by Congress MLA P Shanker Rao, TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu successfully cornered the YSR Congress founder Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. The court, which dealt with the case, ordered a CBI investigation into the charges of ill-gotten money of the YSR clan’s scion. The erstwhile first family, which was already feeling estranged by the Congress by then, of the State was rattled by the court decision. Even as the apex probe agency began delving deep into the books and documents that evidence the transactions of the companies that threw their weight behind Jagan’s companies, a master political move by the Jagan camp aimed at the master political strategist (Chandrababu Naidu) caught the latter as also his associates unawares. Political charges and counter-charges apart, a whole lot of listed companies like Madhucon, Sujana, Ramky, Aurobindo, and numerous private limited entities came under CBI scanner. The State would be contrite at the end of the day what with the top politicians’ dragging one another to court. Businessmen who toed the line of Jagan and Chandrababu Naidu are now getting it as much as their ‘benefactors’ do. After all, as you sow so you reap.

City baked The aroma of wines, honey, sugar, and all ingredients wafts through the nostrils of the celebs and enthusiasts as also the regular guests thronging the hotels for cake mixing in the city. Small, medium and big hotels have all begun the cake mixing much in advance this season amid a lot of fanfare. Every other day, a hotel or a restaurant is conducting a cake mixing event. Nothing wrong in it, though. But we have a copycat culture, if not herd culture. If one does something and tastes success in it, all follow suit – be it traditions, activities or even businesses (read video parlours, corporate colleges, cyber cafes, etc). Thanks to the revolutionary scale on which cakes are being mixed, the entire city appears to have been baked. Turn the pages of newspapers to find the pictures of celebs adorned by caps and gloves and commoners rubbing shoulders with them and a huge cake mixed on an elevated platform. The Hyderabad Bakery...and it all means publicity and also business.

he country’s most prestigious ‘milk factory’ on November 26 celebrated the 90th birthday of Milk Man of India Verghese Kurien, who was milk, fat, SNF, butter, ghee, peda, khova and what not for the Anand Milk Union. “You changed the lives of 15 million farmer families. You revolutionised the dairy sector. You gave India 200 Amul brands. We give you 90 candles.” This is the message put up by Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation on Amul’s website greeting its mentor. “Indian dairy co-operative movement became a shining example of success due to wisdom and toil of our farmers, visionary leadership of Dr. Verghese Kurien and tremendous encouragement and support extended by successive governments at Union and State level,” said P G Bhatol, Chairman of GCMMF. He had said in his annual speech: “During the year, sales of our Federation registered a quantum growth of 22.1 per cent to reach Rs. 9,774.27 crores (Rs. 97.74 billion). On November 26, 1921 – exactly 25 years before the Indian Constitution was enacted, a lad was born to create ‘operation flood’ in India after crossing his 50s. That was Verghese Kurien who held the reins of Amul until 2004-05. Amul welcomed visitors of its website to greet its legend through email (WishDrK@amul.coop), Facebook and twitter. And the $ 2-billion company greeted him on its topicals ‘Makhani happy returns of the day, Dr. Kurien’. A SAYE SEKHAR

A critical look at games and players

Mata inspires Chelsea Chelsea returned to winning ways with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Wolves to ease the pressure on under-fire manager Andre Villas-Boas

R

ecent defeats to Liverpool and Bayer Leverkusen had piled the pressure on the 34year-old Blues boss, but the tension at Stamford Bridge eased in the sixth minute of Saturday's game when John Terry capitalised on some poor marking to head home Juan Mata's cross. Daniel Sturridge slipped his marker to tap home Mata's ball just before the half hour before the Spaniard added the hosts' third in the last minute of the first half when he was given plenty of space to convert Ashley Cole's cross from 12 yards. The result could have been a rout had it not been for a series of excellent stops from Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, the highlight of which was a double-save from Sturridge and Mata halfway through the second period. Wolves, who had won just one of their last 10 games before this, were there for the taking, and after a cagey opening five minutes, Chelsea took hold of the game thanks to Terry's opener. Ramires stole the ball off a dallying Nenad Milijas and fired goal-wards only to see

Juan Mata

Hennessey tip the Brazilian's effort wide with a brilliant save. Stamford Bridge went into uproar from the resulting corner as Terry lost his marker to head Mata's cross home from eight yards to give the Blues the lead. The Blues were cautious in possession and appeared to lack the confidence to turn the screw on their opponents, but they suddenly sprung to life to double their lead in the 29th minute.

Vettel sets pole record

D

ouble world champion Vettel was again in a class of his own over one lap in the final qualifying session of the year at Interlagos. The 24-year-old German now possesses the record for outright number of poles in a single season after matching the previous best mark of 14, posted by Nigel Mansell in 1992, two weeks ago in Abu Dhabi. Underlining Red Bull's

superiority, Mark Webber managed to lock out the front row for the team, finishing 0.117sec behind Vettel. All the McLarens could manage was third and fourth, albeit with Jenson Button out-qualifying Lewis Hamilton for the seventh time this year — the latter half a second behind Vettel. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso was fifth ahead of Nico Rosberg in his Mercedes, who has the second Ferrari of Felipe Massa behind him. Force India's Adrian Sutil, in what was almost certainly his last qualifying session for the team ahead of an anticipated move to Williams, was a superb eighth. Bruno Senna, who is expected to make way for Romain Grosjean next season, was ninth in his Renault, out-qualifying Vitaly Petrov for the fifth time in eight races, with Mercedes' Michael Schumacher 10th. ES

Ronald Zubar attempted to bail Mata over, but the Spaniard kept his footing and sent over a low cross that Sturridge tapped home from close range after muscling past his marker. Hennessey spilled Sturridge's powerful shot over the bar just before the break and Mata made it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time when he was given room to beat Hennessey from EVENING STANDARD 12 yards.

United held at home Manchester United were left furious as a Demba Ba penalty robbed them of victory in a 1-1 draw

L

eading through Javier Hernandez, TV replays showed Rio Ferdinand played the ball as he slid in on Hatem Ben Arfa. The well-placed far-side linesman decided otherwise and despite the dismissal of Jonas Gutierrez, United were unable to force home a winner, old boy Danny Simpson producing a magnificent goal-line clearance to turn away Hernandez's header. Ryan Taylor wasted an early opportunity and Ba produced a wasteful half-volley moments later. Hernandez was the most dangerous member of a United attack that had been bolstered by the return of Wayne Rooney. The Mexican also had a shot saved by Tim Krul and drove another effort over, with Nani also off target with a curling strike from the corner of the penalty area. Fabio, Rooney and Ashley Young had chances that came and went and it was just as well for United that they had profited from some bad luck on Steven Taylor's part. He stuck out a leg to turn away a Rooney piledriver but could only hit Hernandez and watch the ball bobble in. Then, when Ferdinand slid in on Ben Arfa, assistant referee John Flynn surprisingly signalled

for a penalty and Ba kept his cool to send David De Gea the wrong way. Gutierrez pushed his luck too far when he slid through the back of Nani and got a second yellow. Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra had chances and Simpson magnificently turned away Hernandez's goal-bound header before United's final hope was extinguished thanks to an offside ES flag.

India concedes equaliser in dying seconds to draw JOHANNESBURG: India has been unlucky to concede a goal 26 second from time to draw 3-3 their opening game in the Champions Challenge hockey tournament against Belgium. It was a match fought on even keel in Group A on Saturday and the Indians struck thrice in the second half in quick succession, but they allowed the Belgians to level the score twice after they themselves caught up to make it 1-1. Rupinder Pal Singh scored the first goal in the 45th minute, followed by Chingelnsana Singh in the 48th and V Raghunath nine minutes later. They looked well placed to

win the game when the Belgian equalizer came through a penalty corner, Xavier Rekinger scoring off a rebound. Alexandre de Paeuw scored the first goal of the game in the 31st minute goal. Then Tom Boon scored the second in the 55th. India next play hosts South Africa, who should have beat-

en Poland by a bigger margin than the eventual 3-1. South Africa scored through two brilliantly taken penalty-corner drag-flicks in each half by Justin Reid-Ross of Northerns Blues and the third was a field goal going by Lloyd Norris-Jones. Artur Mikula scored for Poland after the South Africans struck twice. In Pool B, tournament favourites Argentina were held to a 2-2 draw by unheralded Japan, semi-finalists at the inaugural Asian Champions Trophy in September while Canada, who will be the main challengers for India in the New Delhi Olympic qualifiers, downed Malaysia 3-1.

Functions and Celebrations

airy lights shimmer, as pretty baubles catch the glimmer. Colourful drapes add that festive touch even as girls dressed in all their finery giggle. The sounds of shehnais and dhols fill the air even as the blushing bride awaits her handsome groom. Every other night, there’s a baraat being taken as enthusiastic revellers dance to the beat of the gregarious wedding bands. The wedding season is here and it’s hard to miss. The year-end is usually one that is filled with festive cheer what with the Christmas goodwill and the promise of the New Year. But being the wedding season only adds to the festive flavour. And weddings across the country are undergoing a sea change. New rituals are being fused with the traditional ones to create a pleasant cocktail of celebrations. For instance, a few years back, if one would recall a south Indian wedding, they would recall scenes of ladies in heavy kanjeevarams and men in pattu dhotis looking as the pundit read the mantras and solemnised the wedding. A stark contrast to the loud and pompous north Indian weddings. But things are changing. Everybody wants to have a bachelor’s/hen’s parties, cocktail party, mehendi, sangeet and baraat. The traditional wedding finery is changing too. Bright lehengas and cocktail gowns are the in things, even as kundan jewellery is replacing chunky gold jewellery. Wedding stylist, Dinaz Noria, shares her experience of making these dream weddings turn a reality. “Unlike earlier, weddings nowadays have become a much more elaborate affair. People want to make it the most memorable event and share their happiness with their near and dear ones. There are a few rituals that have percolated from north India like Sangeet and Mehendi.

Get your work face on with effective make-up

W

hat a dilemma! If anyone can settle the argument, it’s Bobbi Brown. Since launching a collection of 10 lip shades at New York’s Bergdorf Goodman department store in 1991, her products are now sold in 56 countries. Hers is the go-to brand for Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields and Yasmin Le Bon but also the one that gets real women out of the front door each morning looking and feeling a damn sight better than they did when they rolled out of bed. “My ethos has always been that make-up should make women look like themselves — but just a little bit better,” she says when we meet at the Connaught Hotel. “The time-short city woman needs to look groomed and professional without seeming to wear a faceful of product.” Stepping into the office looking effortlessly radiant is our aim but few of us really know how to achieve the elusive “no make-up make-up” look. According to Brown, the mistake we’re making is jumping straight to accent features (bold lips and eyes), when really we should be letting our skin do the work. The rule is “lose the foundation”. Or at least wear much less than we do now.

“Women often start by applying foundation merely out of habit,” says Brown. “Instead, moisturise the face to immediately plump and hydrate skin. “Then apply my Corrector just where you need it — usually under the eyes, around the nose and sometimes on the chin. You can top this with the Creamy Concealer . Step back from the mirror and you’ll be surprised how little foundation — if any — you need.” Shade-matching is Brown’s forte. Her biscuit-toned concealers, she says, counteract purple or green imperfections in light skin tones — the peachy ones neutralise the flaws of warmer complexions. Then it’s a case of adapting product textures. “Skin changes from day to day — and even from morning to evening — so learn to adapt your routine,” she adds. Waking up feeling dry-skinned after a sleepless night? Pat moisturiser over make-up onto cheeks and temples to make it dewy. If your Tube ride has left you shiny, try a loose powder around the nose and across the forehead. We should also stop expecting our make-up to last all day in centrally heated offices. If it lasts all day, it’s usually because it’s having a drying

Bright lipstick and heavy eyeshadow are off the agenda at the office. A report this week said a third of bosses think women wear too much make-up to work. But showing up with a scrubbed face is no good either, as managers do want presentable staff effect on the skin - and it shows. Looking artlessly immaculate herself, Brown skips eyeshadow then lines upper lashes with the deep brown Long-Wear Eyeliner Gel in Espresso Ink. Apparently many mascaras have a grey undertone - yet finding one that’s true black will mean you don’t have to load up your lashes to add definition to eyes. Brown swipes on two coats, skips the fiddly business of lash curlers and instead uses her index finger to hold them in a curled position for a few

Secrets for a perfect work face

Get into the habit of patting moisturiser over make-up and topping up your cream blush for a lightning-quick lunchtime refresher. Use any product remaining on your eyeliner brush from morning to redefine the lower lash line in a way that looks natural. Travel light. Buy one of the empty customisable palettes, and fill it with a small amount of your concealer, blush, a lip shade, eyeliner and shadow to hide gaps in brows. You’ll have everything you need in one compact that slides into your bag. Ditch the “back of your hand” myth and test skin shades on the side of your face and forehead. Your correct match will disappear into your skin. Corrective products should be used to even out your skin tone - not change it. To add warmth, choose a non-shimmer bronzer and use a large, fluffy brush to sweep it across the top of the forehead, down the nose and onto the apples of cheeks. Pick up a free sample size of the Extra Face Oil on counters, pop it in your handbag and pat onto cheekbones and through brows for an instant skin pick-me-up while on the go. Groomed brows add instant polish to your face. Match a brown eye shadow to your hair colour and brush on in small, hair-like strokes. (And watch this space for the arrival of the Bobbi Brown brow pencil.)

seconds while the formula dries. Rootle around in a beauty editor’s makeup bag and you’re sure to find Brown’s Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks. A creambased formula, it blends into the skin, rather than sitting crustily on top as many powders do, to create a natural flush that makes us look perkier without detracting from our professionalism by appearing too girlish.

Here I Am (Motown) fter spending years in Beyoncé's bootylicious shadow, the former Destiny's Child star, is back in the spotlight as one of the judges on this year's X Factor. Initially, it sounds as if this new-found attention has gone to Rowland's head. "I'm not tacky, I just love myself," she asserts over I'm Dat Chick's Gaga-esque backing. For one who seems so confident, however, she's unwilling to take risks on her third solo album. Mildly raunchy R&B ballads are the default setting here, with Rowland sounding like a less exotic Rihanna. "Sometimes you gotta do it, don't talk too much, just kiss and touch, and just do it," she advises on the synth-heavy All of the Night. Stranger still, given the X Factor associations, there's a conspicuous lack of window-shattering high notes on display. Instead, Rowland is largely content to purr over plodding beats and plaintive piano. Even a cameo from the usually brilliant Lil Wayne fails to liven things up. "It goes deep, but I go deeper/Make you lose yourself, like finders keepers," he drawls on Motivation, sounding about as motivated

Alas, he's rather foolishly taken to comparing himself with Paul Weller as a lyricist. He's nothing of the kind, of course, and for all In Case You Didn't Know's bright eyes and bushy tail, it veers from a karaoke version of Bruno Mars's The Lazy Song on the title track to a karaoke version of Bruno Mars's Grenade on Anywhere Else, supplemented by the aimless plod of Just Smile and the anodyne Just Smile.

The track Gnawa Market is a distinctly Moroccan version of Weather Report's Black Market.

Recipes easier than grandmas’ cookings Network analysis confirms ingredient swaps are feasible

Rachel Ehrenberg

f your pumpkin pie recipe calls for cinnamon but you’ve used the last of it, nutmeg, ginger or cardamom will do. Out of olive oil? Try applesauce. A new in-depth analysis of recipes, reviews and suggestions from an online foodie site reveals that many recipes are more flexible than standard cookbooks suggest. Researchers mined more than 40,000 recipes and nearly two million reviews from the website Allrecipes.com, investigating various aspects of cooking and ingredient preferences. “We wondered if the analysis would let us see how flexible recipes are,” says co-author Lada Adamic of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Her team discovered that there’s a lot of wiggle room. The analysis, reported online at arXiv.org, identified several clusters of ingredients that can be swapped for one another. For the uninitiated, using less sugar than called for, or substituting or skipping an

ingredient altogether, could ruin a dish. But distilling the collective wisdom of recipe reviews revealed alternates that would allow even the culinary challenged to improve a dish or tailor it to their tastes. Adamic, Michigan’s ChunYuen Teng and Yu-Ru Lin of Harvard and North-eastern University in Boston generated a list of the top 1,000 ingredients, which accounted for 94.9 per cent of the ingredients in the database. The team noted heating methods, such as broiling and simmering, and various food processing techniques, both mechanical (such as grinding) and chemical (such as marinating). Recipe ratings and regional preferences within the United States were also taken into account. Then the team created a huge diagram of ingredients that are frequently substituted for one another, yielding a network of clustered communities of swappable ingredients. A sweet potato community, for example, includes yams, pumpkin, potatoes, parsnips

and butternut squash. Milk, butter, chicken broth and sugar all have recipe doppelgangers. And in some instances, dropping ingredients all together won’t hurt a dish. A second ingredient diagram connected complementary ingredients, pairings that are found together more often than expected by chance. This network split cleanly into two communities, one sweet and one savoury. The only other community detected was a small satellite cluster comprising alcoholic drink ingredients. Recipes that had healthier substitutions were typically rated more highly by users, the researchers found, suggesting that making such swaps easier for users to find — such as with a roll-over or pop-up on a website — would enhance user experience. Restaurants or meal planners might even learn a thing or two, says Lin, perhaps experimenting with healthier replacements on menus. Other foodie preferences also emerged. Recipes that called for processing foods in some way, rather than just tossing ingredients together, were rated more favourably. This link could relate to a longstanding hypothesis regarding the development of bigger brains in the evolution of humans and our hominid relatives, the team speculates. Processing food mechanically and chemically makes extracting nutrients easier, reducing the cost of digestion. Such techniques may have allowed more nutritional resources to be allocated toward growing bigger brains. “This research gives us a lot of insight into how different people want to eat their food, whether they prefer quick or healthy,” says Vaidehi Venkatesan who, with Ali Minai at the University of Cincinnati, is investigating the relationships among various cuisines. “It is a really great paper.” And the research project helped the scientists feel slightly more at ease in their own kitchens. “I’ve felt more comfortable leaving out nutmeg,” Adamic said.

Nerve stimulation ups airflow during sleep in obstructive sleep apnoea

H

ypoglossal nerve stimulation (HGNS) produced marked doserelated increases in airflow in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) patients without arousing them from sleep, according to a new study from the Johns Hopkins Sleep Disorders Centre. The study suggests the potential therapeutic efficacy of HGNS across a broad range of sleep apnoea severity and offers an alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), the current mainstay of treatment for moderate to severe OSA. The effectiveness of CPAP is often limited by poor patient adherence. “With HGNS, airflow increased in all of our patients, and increased progressively with stimulus amplitude,” according to Alan R Schwartz, MD, medical director of the Sleep Centre at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Centre. “The increases in airflow we observed were of sufficient magnitude to eliminate inspiratory airflow limitation (IFL) in the majority of patients.”

The findings were published online ahead of print publication in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. The study, which was supported by device manufacturer Apnex Medical, Inc, enrolled 30 middle-aged patients with moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnoea who were implanted with a novel HGNS system. The pacemaker-like device monitors breathing patterns and is activated during sleep to stimulate the hypoglossal nerve, which controls muscles in the upper airway. During the study, current was increased stepwise during non-REM sleep. Frequency and pulse width were fixed. At each current level, stimulation was applied on alternating breaths so that responses in inspiratory airflow could be compared to adjacent un-stimulated breaths, and maximal inspiratory airflow (VImax) and IFL were measured.

“O

If you are looking for something easy to read, consider this strong, funny and very witty memoir by Tina Fey aptly titled Bossypants

nce in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her,” reads the review on the jacket flap of Bossypants. The self-deprecating humour is a recurring theme in her book. But don’t lead that mislead you. For the uninitiated, Tina Fey is a woman that comes along once in a generation. Best known for her portrayal of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey is a seven-time Emmy Award winning actress, comedian, writer and producer, and the creator of her own television series – 30 Rock. Bossypants isn’t your usual memoir. Though it’s largely chronological, it’s a little jagged and non-linear, much like you’d get from sketchy comedy that Fey is so used to writing. Through twenty-five odd chapters, Bossypants follows Fey from the time of her birth through her nerdy childhood, awkward teenage years with a group of gay friends, summer experiences in theater to her career at Saturday Night Live and finally, how she came to create 30 Rock. That said, don’t expect any heart-wrenching revelations or confessions or even anything very personal from Fey. Even the two chapters dedicated to her experiences on SNL and 30 Rock , which are the most interesting, are heavily censored. The most likely explanation is that perhaps that Bossypants is more about the making of Fey the woman than Fey the comedian. What stands out however, is Fey’s own take-no-prisoners brand of feminism and a righteous indignation that runs through out the book. For instance, she relates a story about her SNL co-star Amy Poehler and writes “I think of it

15

whenever someone says to me, ‘Jerry Lewis says women aren’t funny’. Or ‘Christopher Hitchens says women aren’t funny?’... Do you have anything to say to that? Yes. We don’t f****** care if you like it.” Similarly, a question that’s she’s “freaking always asked,” about the difference between male and female comedians has her sardonically remarking, “The men urinate in cups.” In another instance, Fey explains the title of the book. As SNL’s first ever female lead writer and as the star and producer of 30 Rock, she is needless to say, is the Bossypants. But despite having conquered a niche for herself in the male-dominated world of comedy, she is continually plagued by those who doubt if she really is the boss, responsible for 200 people on the show. So, in a chapter titled Juggle This, she rips apart her retractors by writing, “Ever since I became an executive producer of 30 Rock, people have asked me ... ‘Is it uncomfortable for you to be the person in charge?’ You know, in the same way they say, ‘Gosh, Mr.Trump, is it awkward for you to be the boss of all these people?’” Needless to say, there’s plenty more where that came from. So, if you like the sassy, venomtongued humour of Fey on television, chances are that you are going to dig the generously interspersed array of one-liners in Bossypants.

Saraswati donned the role of an assistant director for the critically acclaimed Morning Raaga, and even designed costumes for Shabana Azmi and Tabu in it. “The team was amazing and it was a great learning for me. But I realised that it was going to be the last commercial movie and that my heart lay in documentaries. Incidentally, it was through Morning Raaga that I met Shankar Melkote who initiated me into activism,” she says.

Presenting

as it is “At the end of day, if you can’t speak your mind or do your thing, there’s simply no point. In that sense, documentaries spoil you. You can work on your own and at your own pace and won’t have to depend on a hundred other people. There are no constraints,” says Saraswati who has made over a dozen documentaries around various social issues ranging from illegal gemstone mining and other environmental issues to human rights. Some of her prominent works include Behind the Glitter, Between the Devil and the Deep Sea, The Green Trap, Paradox City, Cutting off a Lifeline,

Vision2020, Playtime, Coast Under Attack, Seeds of Sovereignty and mostly recently, a profile on an HCU professor and gay activist, My Dear Gay Teacher. Apart from being a documentary film-maker and social activist, Saraswati is also a talented photographer, whose works were recently displayed in a well-received exhibition. “People often tell me that in my photographs and films they see life as it is. That it’s almost like there’s no camera. That’s gratifying,” she says, smiling. Interestingly, the documentary film-maker is camera shy! “I get conscious in front of the camera,” she sheepishly admits.

The Aesthetic Experience

was called l’art pour l’art (roughly translated as art for art’s sake). But strictly speaking, this was not the beginning of the movement itself. The roots of aestheticism can be traced back to the late 1700s. The German philosopher Immanuel Kant, for instance, wrote in his book Critique of Judgment that a pure aesthetic experience consists of “an objective contemplation of a form of art that pleases for its own sake.” Similarly, Edgar Allen Poe, describes in Poetic Principle (1850) that a great poem is one that’s a poem per se sans any didactic value. French Aestheticism spilled over into Victorian England courtesy of Walter Pater who worshiped stylistic beauty and high artifice. In its most extreme form, poets like Flaubert and Mallarme maintained that they followed the religion of “beauty” and that life was for art sake.

Does art need to have been a purpose or meaning? Absolutely not, say proponents of the aesthetic movement

Proponents of the movement included greats like Oscar Wilde, TS Eliot, JM Whistler, Yeats, TE Hulme among others. Even twentieth century

writers continue to argue the merits of judging art work by emphasis on its intrinsic value like craft and artistry rather on its meaning or purpose.

INTERESTING FACTS

A lady is walking down the street to work and sees a parrot in a pet store. The parrot says to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." Well, the lady is furious! On the way home she saw the same parrot in the window and upon seeing her it repeats the same thing. She was incredibly ticked now. Next day the same thing happened. The lady stormed into the store and threatened to sue the store and have the bird killed. The store manager apologised profusely and promised the bird wouldn't say it again. The next day, when the lady walked past the store the parrot said to her, "Hey lady." She paused, and said with a hoarse voice, "Yes?" The bird, in a cocky manner, said, "You know."

nBirds do not have teeth. nThe largest of all birds is the ostrich. nThe humming birds are the only birds that can fly backwards. nAn eagle can kill a young deer and fly away with it.

Everyone can help preserve the world’s amazing, irreplaceable endangered species. One should time and again educate oneself about the dangers facing them, volunteer at conservation organisations and write to local officials highlighting issues facing conservation of animals

It’s ridiculous to pay stars so much C

ontending that the story of a film is its real hero, veteran actor Om Puri has said that he finds it ridiculous that stars walk away with the biggest share of a project’s budget. “The share which they are given is ridiculous. If a star can make a film hit, then why is it that some of their films flop? It happens with everyone whether it is Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan,” the 61-year-old said. Pointing out that films are always a result of team work with everyone including directors, cameramen and technicians involved with its success, he said that recently the SRK starrer much hyped film Ra.One failed to live up to the expectations only because of a weak script. Film-maker Ken Ghosh admitted that he was also unhappy with the trend of paying film stars PTI more than script writers.

The first thing I thought about was my kids and their safety. I needed to be with them. We have had such an awful year. We have had to react previously to threats and I thought that was behind me,” she added. IANS

ake profiles on Twitter seem to be giving sleepless nights to Nayanthara, Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal. Irked by this menace, all three actresses have categorically denied having an online presence on social networking sites especially Twitter.

However, this fact doesn’t seem to have any effect on 20,000 odd number of followers who are following each of these actresses on Twitter. Recently, a leading men’s magazine poked fun of Kajal Aggarwal based on her twitter profile much to the surprise of the

actress who said that she was not on twitter. Nayanthara and Samantha are said to be contemplating some sort of action against these miscreants who are already connecting with these actresses’ friends in the industry and tweeting wrong information.

TAROT READ

31

A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet and says, "My dog's cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him?" "Well," says the vet, "let's have a look at him." So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth. Finally, he says "I'm going to have to put him down." "What? Because he's cross-eyed?" "No, because he's really heavy." Apparently, one in five people in the world are Chinese. And there are five people in my family, so it must be one

of them. It's either my mum or my dad, or maybe my older brother Colin or my younger brother Ho-Cha Chu. But I'm pretty sure it's Colin. I went to the butcher's the other day and I bet him 50 bucks that he couldn't reach the meat off the top shelf. He said, "No, the steaks are too high." A man woke up in a hospital after a serious accident. He shouted, "Doctor, doctor, I can't feel my legs!" The doctor replied, "I know you can't – I've cut off your arms!" I went to a seafood disco last week... and pulled a mussel.
