Yahoo News - 2 months
Climate scientists tend to be a hardy bunch, accustomed to hate mail, vicious online attacks, lawmakers who deny that global warming is real, and for some, even death threats. "The thing that is palpable among scientists is fear," said John Abraham, a professor at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota who works on thermal science, ocean warming and renewable energy. "Fear that there will be either funding cuts to really critical climate science work, or retribution for their work on climate change," he told AFP.

Ocean Acidification Is Bad, and It's Getting Worse
Huffington Post - about 1 year
More than 97 percent of climate scientists tell us that adding greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane to the atmosphere is changing our climate. As these gases accumulate, they trap heat from the sun and gradually raise the planet's average temperature. This will lead to a plethora of inhospitable weather and a generally nasty time for those of us living on the planet's surface. But while the term "global warming" is simple enough to understand, how this process is transforming our ocean is slightly more complicated and much more corrosive. The Ocean Is Acidifying The ocean absorbs about 30 percent of the CO2 emitted from human activites. As the volume of atmospheric CO2 grows, the ocean collects its proportionate share. To give you an idea of how much that is, in 2013, countries emitted nearly 40 billion tons of carbon. According to the World Meteorological Organization, that represents the biggest surge in CO2 concentration since 1984. That's bad news for t ...

Sanjay Gupta, who was already juggling two films, Mumbai Saga and Khotey Sikkey, has to clear his schedule for a third. And the offer has come from LA. A Hollywood production house has approached Gupta to direct an official remake of a hit foreign language film. When contacted, Sanjay confirmed the news but refused to divulge the title of the original film or the name of his co-producer. "I am contractually bound to not reveal the details," he said. "All I can tell you is that it is a thriller like many of my previous films. But while the others were male-centric, this one has a woman protagonist and two important male characters. These guys approached me after seeing my body of work." The film, to be co-produced by Sanjay, will be made in Hindi and English. While Gupta admitted that he might approach John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan or Shahid Kapoor for the two male characters as it would be a welcome change for them too to not play the leading man, he was tight lipped about wh ...

If the very talented Irrfan Khan is no longer voluntarily unemployed, he has John Abraham to thank for it. John was supposed to start his next film Rocky Handsome with director Nishikant Kamat this month. However the dates for Kamat's film clashed with Anees Bazmee's Welcome Back. Nishikant has quickly started another film starring Irrfan Khan about a common man's fight against corruption The film is said to be inspired by Arvind Kejriwal's aam aadmi movement.

Madras Cafe
Bollywood Hungama - over 3 years
Political thrillers aren't really Hindi movies' favoured subject matter. Getting embroiled into unwanted hullabaloo -- before or post release of the film -- is not what a film-maker would want to get into. But Shoojit Sircar, who attempted a film on Kashmir [YAHAAN] and followed it up with a film on sperm donation and infertility [VICKY DONOR], gets into the serious zone yet again with MADRAS CAFE. An espionage thriller that's set in India, Thailand, Singapore, U.K. and Sri Lanka. So why a title like MADRAS CAFE for a film that talks of the assassination of our former Prime Minister? Well, that's the cafe where the conspiracy was hatched, we're told. Okay, now let's move ahead... The Hindi movie spectator has often been subjected to stories that depict the conflict with Pakistan, but Shoojit attempts to narrate a story that not many from the present generation would know -- the civil war in Sri Lanka. What transpired in the 1980s and 1990s and how it impacted the political sc ...

NEW DELHI:  Having made quite an impression in her debut film Rockstar as Ranbir Kapoor’s lady love, one would assume that Nargis Fakhri has had it easy in B-town. However, Fakhri admits that it is tough for an outsider to make a place in the industry and it is sheer luck that she got the opportunity to work alongside A-listers. In her second film Madras Café — a political thriller directed by Shoojit Sircar which is scheduled to release on Friday — Fakhri will be seen with another top actor, John Abraham. “I’m still in awe of how I got so lucky to work with actors like Ranbir and John. I hope to continue working with more A-listers,” she said. Fakhri feels that her team has played a huge role in her success so far. “It is pretty difficult for a newcomer to make it in Bollywood. You need guidance, and I was fortunate that agencies like Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and KWAN Entertainment and Marketing Solutions had taken me on. If it wasn’t for ...
