water travesty the water crisis in Gaza is man-made And like in Flint what is most lacking to resolve it are not technical solutions but political will The Gaza water crisis is a ticking global-health time bomb With dire water and electricity shortages in one of the planets most densely populated areas the threat of a pandemic in Gazaand also across Israels bordersis real There are three steps that can help defuse this crisis and ensure a brighter future for Israelis and Palestinians: 1 Israel can double the amount of water it sells to Gaza Under the Oslo II Accords of 1995 Israel has control over the great majority of shared water resources Israel also agreed to sell 10 million cubic meters of water to Gaza each year Last year Israel met this threshold for the first time by doubling the previous amount of 5 mcm of water Israel sold to Gaza each year This was an important step forward and we must build on that momentum Since the Oslo II Accords were signed the strips population has more than doubled Since the Oslo accords were intended to be merely an interim solution the agreement didnt account for Gazas projected population growth more than 20 years later The Oslo accords also didnt account for the almost total depletion and contamination of Gazas only source of freshwater the Coastal aquifer The UN predicts this aquifer could be entirely unfit for human consumption by the end of 2016 and irreversibly damaged by 2020 2 Israel can increase its sale of electricity to Gaza Israel increasing its sale of water to Gaza is an urgently needed first step but not a sustainable solution in the long run As Israeli Knesset MK Omer Bar Lev of Israels Labor Party has said: "Israel should in the short term double the volume of water it sells to Gaza but in the long term Gaza must have large scale desalination in place" Large-scale desalination is an obvious answer for the coastal enclave but almost impossible given Gazas chronic shortage of electricity Desalination is extremely energy-intensive With Israel and Egypt tightly restricting fuel sold to Gaza since Hamas seized power in 2007 Gaza experiences rolling daily blackouts of 12-16 hours Hospitals struggle to keep incubators and dialysis machines running Gaza doesnt have enough electricity to treat its own sewage and as a result 35 million cubic feet of raw and partially treated sewage flows into the Mediterranean every day Gazas sewage has already ended up on Israels beaches and could ultimately contaminate Israels own desalination plant in Ashkelon just a few miles north of Gaza Fortunately there is a ready-made solution that can begin to address this disaster Gaza already has a large-scale sewage plant It only needs power to start operating The plant built by the World Bank needs 3 megawatts of power to run Gidon Bromberg the Israeli Director of the joint Israeli-Palestinian organization called EcoPeace has asked Israel to "sell enough electricity to power the newly built sewage treatment plant in northern Gaza" warning that "failure to do so is shooting ourselves in the foot"By increasing its fuel sales to Gaza Israel could prevent the spread of waterborne diseases in Gaza and within Israels own borders Further fuel sales would allow Gaza the chance to begin the only long-term solution to the drinking water shortage: desalination Large-scale desalination requires large-scale electric infrastructure necessitating a high voltage electricity line and a gas pipeline to power the Gaza power station By increasing its fuel sales to Gaza Israel could prevent the spread of waterborne diseases in Gaza and within Israels own borders Further fuel sales would allow Gaza the chance to begin the only long-term solution to the drinking water shortage: desalination 3 Gaza must be permitted to repair its water and electricity infrastructure Much of Gazas water electricity and sewage infrastructure is in a state of disrepair after the three wars over the past decade Rather than invest in repairing destroyed water and power lines Hamas has prioritized tunnels to transport weapons and militants to launch vicious attacks on Israel However even the most concerted efforts to rebuild Gazas water sewage and electric infrastructure is all but impossible under Israels crippling blockade of Gaza The blockade now entering its 10th year has prevented Gaza from being able to rebuild most of the infrastructure destroyed by Israeli bombing attacks over the years Israel has legitimate security concerns and we must ensure that Gazas borders are heavily guarded against the infiltration of terrorists and weapons At the same time Gaza should not be closed to supplies desperately needed for repairing Gazas civilian water and electricity infrastructure or the flow of other civilian goods Walls fences and checkpoints can stop terrorist infiltration but they cant stop the infiltration of sewage or water borne diseases like cholera or dysentery Walls cant stop polio which the World Health Organization has found some evidence of in Gazas sewage Everyone should have access to safe drinking water By increasing Israeli sales of water and electricity and allowing Gaza to rebuild water and power lines a region-wide catastrophe can be averted These steps can make a real impact on the lives of Israelis and Palestinians improving prospects for an eventual two-state

None of this (is) specifically tied to a kind of Hindutva or anti-minority message but it can easily be I don’t argue with the possibility that it gets interpreted that way” A group that distributes food to the poor uses Hanuman stickers because "it is different and gets your attention" For ‘Balaji Kunba — a family against hunger’ Hanuman is angry but its ire is directed towards hunger and poverty according to a report in The Times of India Even if we consider the artwork as an expression of "anger" it isn’t clear why that should trigger calls for boycott In the article that discovers ‘militant Hinduism’ in the image what strikes one is the fallacy in taking one avatar of a Hindu god as the reference point Hanuman is benign docile and submissive but he is also a ferocious warrior a soldier a fearsome destroyer whose rage cannot be contained and whose one roar is enough to make the three worlds tremble Evil vanishes at the utterance of his very name writes Tulsidas in Hanuman Chalisa Aapan tej samharo aapai/ Teenhon lok hank te kanpai Bhoot pisaach Nikat nahin aavai/ Mahavir jab naam sunavae All of this is "true" It isn’t just misinformation to reduce such a ferocious warrior who burnt Lanka down to cinders to a one-dimensional "benign" creature It is worse because the writer misses the very first point of Hinduism which encourages plurality and multiplicity of views not adherence to one view There is no ‘one truth’ in Hinduism there are ‘many truths’ Or maybe the discomfort lies with the assertiveness of Hindutva because it militates against the notion of a benign non-proselytising religion that is expected to roll over and make space for Abrahamic faiths and the unsmiling Hanuman verily looks as if he ready to fight that eventuality The issue ultimately isn’t whether the imagery is "angry" pensive" or "benign" It is about the vilification of a religion and its practitioners based on an ill-informed and mischievous interpretations The poster of Hanuman has not been associated with any acts of crime or violence and therefore to call for boycott of public vehicles that display the image is intolerance elitism bigotry and cultural chauvinism all rolled into one As senior journalist Charmy Jayasree Harikrishnan protesting against these unjustified calls for boycott has written: "India is still a free country and there is nothing to suggest that all those who display a particular poster of Hanuman belong to a group that harass or rape women… And stop insisting that Hanuman should be smiling You are displaying the worst traits of those whom you claim to oppose You are not only trying to establish mob justice and calling for subversion of freedom of expression but this also amounts to blatant discrimination and denying employment due to prejudices…" according to a report in The News Minute These misappropriations have also led to lopsided cultural wars One VHP functionary was rightly condemned for tweeting that he had cancelled a ride from a taxi aggregator "because the driver was a Muslim" His misdemeanor has been called out by many In righteous indignation some have called for Abhishek Mishra the VHP member to be punished for his hate speech Yet this condemnation was singularly missing when it came to censoring Resmi Nair the Bengaluru resident who was openly discriminatory against cabs which had the temerity to display the "angry Hanuman" picture even though as has been pointed out that image has not been associated with any acts of violence or crime This prejudice has slipped through gaping holes of our collective consciousness The unfortunate conclusion is that Hinduism and its practitioners continue to be at the receiving end of ‘liberal bigotry’ — a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing of moral uptightness Modi has put the finger on the buzzer yet again Redundant defenses against the most likely failures may not be enough to protect US nuclear plants against a catastrophic failure like the one that occurred earlier this year in Japan That’s the conclusion of the first of two reviews of US nuclear plants by the staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) "A sequence of events like the Fukushima accident is unlikely to occur in the United States" says the task force’s report released yesterday But a "patchwork of regulatory requirements" currently in place ought to be reviewed updated and possibly strengthened to address "low likelihood high consequence" events like the Fukushima calamity it says The cornerstone of the NRC’s regulatory framework regarding accidents is known as the "defense in depth" strategy defined as relying on "redundant layers of defense to compensate for potential human and mechanical failures" so as to rely on no single layer" But a review of those layers found that "significant reinforcements" are required for each type of preparation: protection (preventing meltdowns or other disasters) mitigation (making such accidents less harmful if they happen) and emergency preparedness (responding to accidents) For example the task force called for nuclear reactor vessel vents which release pressure from boiled cooling water to be "hardened" That step could mean making them operable without AC electrical power or even operator control The task force said that it is unclear whether Japanese utility officials were ever able to open vents to release air pressure during the accident That could have caused the breach of the containment structure after the pressure skyrocketed in several reactor vessels The report also called for adding instruments to spent nuclear fuel pools to give operators better information during accidents and potentially new systems for the automatic refilling of cooling pools Other recommendations included better emergency plans that incorporated the possibility of prolonged power blackouts or events that take out multiple reactors at once The Nuclear Energy Institute the Washington DC-based industry lobby said the report lacked evidence to support "many of its recommendations" When ScienceInsider asked for details it cited the recommendation on hardened vents The institute’s Steven Kerekes said that there is "supportive evidence" that current systems are vulnerable and that the Fukushima incident is a sufficient reason to change the rules Meanwhile the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) a frequent critic of the NRC’s rules for the industry has released a report today that included 23 recommendations for strengthening the system that go well beyond the proposals in the NRC report For example UCS said that spent nuclear fuel in US cooling pools should be moved to hardened cask storage The task force said it was too soon to make such a recommendation based on available data from Fukushima The NRC task force report solicited no public input for its report A much larger effort due in 3 months from now will incorporate public comment and testimony from hearings If you need to

Contact us at editors@timecomTuesday’s biggest news about the future of Microsoft is unquestionably the appointment of longtime company executive Satya Nadella as CEO replacing Steve Ballmer But the most intriguing aspect of the succession plan is the part about the guy who’s signing up to be Nadella’s technology adviser: Bill Gates It’s a new role for Microsoft’s cofounder who is turning over his chairmanship of the company to former Symantec CEO John Thompson In a video welcoming Nadella as CEO Gates says that he’ll be available to spend more than a third of his time consulting on Microsoft products the most he’s devoted to the business since he stepped down as chief software architect in July 2008 to focus on his philanthropic efforts If there was ever such a thing as a post-Gates era at Microsoft it’s over Does Nadella want Bill Gates peering over his shoulder and chiming in on product design or would he prefer to run the show on his own We’ll never know for sure but it’s hard to imagine Gates — one of the industry’s great visionaries and strategists — getting more involved with the company and not leaving his own distinctive imprint Still everybody agrees that the Microsoft of the future must be a different company than the Microsoft of today or the Microsoft of yesterday Including Microsoft: In his final months as CEO Ballmer was awfully busy shaking things up He instituted a “One Microsoft” reorg designed to smash the company’s historic fiefdoms He also declared that the company was henceforth focused on “devices and services” and fast-forwarded the devices part by agreeing to buy Nokia’s phone business The only reason that Ballmer has been trying to engineer a new Microsoft is that the old one — the one which has been a continuation of Gates’s Microsoft — is in dire need of fundamental reimagining The news isn’t bad on all fronts: If it were the company wouldn’t have reported robust Q2 financial results But the company that dominated personal computing for decades doesn’t dominate smartphones tablets or any emerging category of devices And chances are that the era of Microsoft dominance is over forever — even if more people come around to liking Windows 8 and Windows Phone In the 1990s Microsoft was able to turn Windows’ popularity into a near-monopoly on desktop operating systems web browsers and office suites which left it in charge of the entire computing ecosystem The company saw everything as an extension of Windows a form of tunnelvision that largely worked in its favor Until it didn’t: * In the old days the applications you wanted to run were available for Windows and sometimes only Windows Today the web is the great overarching platform and it works equally well on a Windows PC a Mac or a Chromebook * Microsoft’s tendency to see everything as Windows led to Windows Mobile an operating system with a tiny Start button that became a dinosaur the moment the iPhone was announced That mindset is still visible today in Windows 8: Microsoft intends it to work equally well on everything from old-school desktop PCs to 7″ tablets If that goal is attainable at all Microsoft hasn’t achieved it yet * Classic Microsoft products often tried to make everybody happy by cramming in every possible feature leading to bloat Today a lot of products succeed by doing a few things and doing them well * In its golden age Microsoft was brilliant at identifying important product categories — PCs Net-enabled TVs tablets phones and more — but often failed to turn them into polished products That didn’t matter so much in the era when it controlled the entire personal-computing ecosystem but it does today (And to be fair the level of craftsmanship of many current Microsoft products is far better than in the past) * Microsoft’s principal source of revenue has always been software sales But that business model is under attack — most notably by Google which gives away operating systems and web-based apps then makes money off them via advertising If Gates is going to help get Microsoft moving rapidly in the right direction it won’t be because he helps it be more like the Microsoft of old the one he built in the first place It’ll be because he helps it become something new Something without many of the characteristics which spring to mind when one thinks about Bill Gates’ historic worldview and areas of expertise (Not all of them though If Gates tells you which product categories he thinks will matter in ten to fifteen years listen carefully — his track record on that stuff is uncanny) I suspect that Gates will be something of a silent partner — he doesn’t need the fame and it wouldn’t be good for anybody if people perceived Nadella as a junior partner or a puppet But it would be fascinating if part of the cure for Microsoft’s difficulties moving past the Gates legacy turned out to be a larger dose of Bill Gates Contact us at editors@timecom “He authored two popular books ‘Jailed for Life, “So that is the much we can do.
