to see if it will allow for new sites in our imagining”.Architecture has always been a project of speculation and conjecture which often takes place in the architectural imagination If the intellectual climate of a city is related to the social production of space this initiative is a way to make that space possible And if space is contested then it also becomes political Can there be a democratic dialogue for the Hall of Nations While some contributors have transposed the building to archaeological sites others have given it a political address there are pop-culture references in a few and yet others have sited them in locations of national pride Denver-Ahmedabad-based architect Shubhra Raje situates the building at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota “When we make things strange and unfamiliar it helps us discover characteristics of a building One cannot escape the strong structural design prepared by Mahendra Raj We felt the discussion about these buildings was narrow and it considered only a few aspects such as heritage legacy and history” she says To prove that heritage isn’t the only premise of discussion Raje and Delhi-based architect Vrinda Jariwala place the building in the contemporary context of cinema and literature They enter the Star Wars universe with Darth Vader and galactic war “It is like the Monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey the building seems to ‘fit’ everywhere and appear as a witness of events It is like an exercise in speculative archaeology” says Raje Bhatt quotes Le Corbusier: Only those who play are serious “Architecture has to return to the stuff of life Buildings in their material form tend to distract us from this play As architecture is a non-affirmative art an architect’s responsibility requires that the work be liberated from the narrow confines of site and heritage If this is the case then where do we put a building As more and more people create images we are asking what principles does this establish” Photographer Ram Rahman fuels his imagination with the political hot potato: the Ram Mandir “It all began when Anand posted an image of Philip Johnson’s Glass House and placed the dome of the Florence Cathedral on it I have been saying that the only way to save modern buildings is to turn them into religious sites So I thought of placing the Ram Mandir on top of the Hall of Nations then nobody would dare to touch it Maybe it will have a deity that appears at night and in the morning you can have bells ringing and flowers” says Rahman who hopes the initiative will encourage

brain may mind wander when performing easy tasks (Source: Pixabaycom) Top News Worried about the habit of daydreaming or a wandering mind during meetings in office or at home Take heart it may not be as bad as you think but a sign that you are really smart and creative researchers say The findings showed people with efficient brains may have too much brain capacity to stop their minds from wandering when performing easy tasks “People tend to think of mind wandering as something that is bad You try to pay attention and you can’t Our data are consistent with the idea that this isn’t always true Some people have more efficient brains” said Eric Schumacher Associate Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta US Higher efficiency means more capacity to think and the brain may mind wander when performing easy tasks he said For the study published in the journal Neuropsychologia the team measured the brain patterns of people while they lay in an MRI machine The researchers then used the data to identify which areas of the brain work together during an awake resting state “The correlated brain regions gave us insight about which areas of the brain work together during an awake resting state” said Christine Godwin doctoral student at the varsity “Interestingly research has suggested that these same brain patterns measured during these states are related to different cognitive abilities” Godwin added Individuals who reported more frequent daydreaming scored higher on intellectual and creative ability and had more efficient brain systems

rights activists have dramatically shifted their tactics over the last decade targeting individual researchers and the businesses that support them instead of going after their universities That’s the biggest revelation to come out of a report released today by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States The purpose of the report—The Threat of Extremism to Medical Research: Best Practices to Mitigate Risk through Preparation and Communication—is to provide guidance to scientists and institutions around the world in dealing with animal rights extremists That includes individuals and groups that damage laboratories send threatening e-mails and even desecrate the graves of researchers’ relatives In 2004 for example Animal Liberation Front activists broke into psychology laboratories at the University of Iowa where they smashed equipment spray-painted walls and removed hundreds of animals causing more than $400000 in damage In 2009 extremists set fire to the car of a University of California Los Angeles neuroscientist who worked on rats and monkeys And other researchers say activists have shown up at their homes in the middle of the night threatening their families and children “We wanted to create an international document to get people thinking about the potential of animal extremism” says Michael Conn a co-chair of the committee that created the report and the senior vice president for research at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock “These activities can happen to anybody—no one is immune” Personal attacks in particular appear to be on the rise The report looks at 220 reported illegal incidents within the United States between 1990 and 2012 It finds that from 1990 to 1999 61% involved universities while just 9% involved individuals From 2000 to 2012 however only 13% of incidents involved universities while 46% involved individuals Actions against businesses are also on the rise with 17% of incidents from 2000 to 2012 involving investors and business partners two groups not even mentioned in the previous decade’s numbers These latter incidents included activists threatening to protest businesses that supply animal feed to research labs and airlines that transport research animals “If all of a sudden companies refuse to supply you with paper towels or lab coats you have a serious problem” says Conn who himself was the target of animal extremism—receiving threatening phone calls and being followed through airports by activists—when he was the administrator of an animal facility at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland “It makes it very difficult to get your job done” In response the FASEB report contains a number of recommendations It advises researchers to limit the amount of personal information they make available on the Internet for example It says universities should assemble a “crisis management team” composed of scientists security personnel press officers and legal consultants so that they can quickly respond to incidents And it recommends that researchers and institutions actively engage with the public inviting members of the community to view their facilities for example as a way to combat animal rights propaganda OHSU for one allows local residents to tour its primate research center on a regular basis; it also offers summer programs such as Camp Monkey for grade-school students Eric Bernthal the chair of the board of directors of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) says he agrees that scientists should combat animal rights extremism “We don’t condone terror and destruction of property” he says noting that HSUS has achieved its animal welfare goals by working with legislators But he says the FASEB report spends far too much time on how scientists can mitigate attacks and almost no time on why these attacks are occurring in the first place “If you’re going to give advice to researchers about how to solve this problem the most constructive way is to use fewer animals in research” he says “not assemble crisis communication teams” Bernthal says HSUS would like to work with Conn and other scientists to figure out ways to reduce the number of animals in biomedical laboratories “There are still some circumstances where animal research is vitally important” he says “But there are huge steps that can be taken to phase it out” (Source: File photo) Top News After nearly six decades in service, He said the killing of
