Under current scenarios a journey to Mars takes about six months. The crew would therefore be exposed to the effects of long duration space flight where muscle and bone loss occurs under the prolonged exposure to micro-gravity. These effects appear to be largely reversible though. Of more concern is the radiation exposure when the crew leaves Earth's protective magnetic field. There is currently no shielding technology that would keep the increased cancer risk for the crew below legally accepted limits. And this does not take into account the need to protect astronauts from solar flares, too, in the short term. Musk offers no real solution here other than using the spaceship at the best angle for protection. … [Read more...] about How Soon Could Elon Musk Send People to Mars?

Q: Have you seen an uptake in filing taxes online currently? What are the other trends that you are seeing right now during the lockdown?Archit Gupta (AG): Due to Covid-19, the government gave relief and postponed all tax deadlines, compliance activities to taxpayers. So I think that was a very good start. But now as we get into June, right, the deadline is back. The government obviously did not declare the GST collection number as you may know and is waiting for the June collection to happen before they start declaring the numbers. So what we are seeing is, Businesses, CA firms, and enterprises are gearing up for the June deadline. They will have to comply with all the past. As the lockdown opens people anticipate coming back into the office, interacting with the systems and paying the taxes, and comply. I think the relief was very appreciated by the industry. Also, historically July was the deadline for individual tax returns. That’s postponed to November.

It seems a premonitory insight, in many ways. After four years of post office salons and evenings with her fin-de-siècle (as they called themselves) girlfriends, her free-range life came to a close. She met a young post office clerk from Aldershot called John Thompson, and when he was transferred to the main office in Bournemouth, they married. They had a son and daughter, Basil and Winifred, but the marriage was no happy joining of kindred souls. John was provincial and aggressively class-conscious; he derided her taste for books and her writing ambitions. So she wrote in secret, and with two children to feed was spurred into trying to make her scribblings pay. She won a competition in a women's magazine for an essay on Jane Austen. She began contributing stories to the socialist Daily Citizen, the only time she nailed her innate radicalism to a particular political mast. In 1912, she acquired a mentor, the Scottish poet Ronald Campbell Macfie. After the sinking of the Titanic … [Read more...] about Diary of a country woman
