Personal networks are associated with clean cooking fuel adoption in rural South India

Government and public health experts in India have tried to convince poor households to shift to 'clean cooking' technology to reduce the use of wood, charcoal, and other traditional fuels. But in a country where household air pollution claims 600,000 lives per year, the shift has been slow. A new study led by Boston College researchers finds that personal networks play a significant role in whether rural poor households adopt cleaner fuels.

New archaeological discoveries are hinting at complex societies of antiquity greater that the agriculture linked...

Beyond polemics: debating God in early modern India

The early modern period in India (roughly from 1550 to 1750) has been increasingly understood as a time of heightened religious self-awareness—the fertile soil from which Hinduism emerged as a unified world religion. Yet it was also a tumultuous period of intense rivalry across scholarly and religious communities. Scholars debated one another on matters of doctrine and religious practice, turning as well a critical gaze toward the founding figures of their respective schools of thought. Traditio...

Along with it, he also got control of its hoary printing press. Located on Bazaar Gate Street in the Fort of Bombay, most of the printing equipment in the press was hopelessly outdated. At a time when offset presses were being commonly used for printing newspapers, the English text of the Kaiser-i-Hind was set using Linotype and Monotype machines, a tec...

How Old Is Plate Tectonics? Signals From The Mantle

A recent study has used the geochemistry of Archean basalts and komatites to suggest that plate tectonics began by 3.2 billion years ago. The chemical composition of these rocks points to active transfer of elements from the crust into the deep mantle by this time. The authors argue that this mass transfer from surface to the interior can most efficiently be achieved only via subduction of plates.Early in its history the earth differentiated into three chemically distinct shells, the crust, the ...

Hot Comfort For a Discomforting Time

Tea is comfort. Tea is ritual. Tea is an escape to another place even within the confines of your own home. Easing tensions in an uncertain time, I drink tea during the day at times that I might not normally do so – even just before going to sleep. Whenever I sip, though, I think of the lush and hilly terrain defined by well-aligned rows of tea bushes and there is a sense of calm. In the mind’s eye, I can recollect past trips to tea gardens and remember the aromas in the air when nearing tea fa...
