ambulance strike teams and 400 ambulances ready and the state is giving out two million meals and one million gallons of drinking water Write to Abigail Abrams at abigailabrams@timecomThe results of the urban civic body elections in Maharashtra including the all important cash-rich Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) proves that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continues to be the most buoyant political force but the Shiv Sena too is a force to reckon with at least in Mumbai The election result has put the friends-turned-rivals in a rather tricky relationship situation in the state and at the centre The other significant message emanating from these results is that the Congress which has been completely reduced to margins and the downward slide that hit the grand old party in 2013 has continued in 2017 as well be it Parliamentary Assembly Zila Panchayat or any municipal elections Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis PTI And that’s something for the party’s leadership including Sonia Gandhi Rahul Gandhi and the core team of Congress strategists to think about Also important for the party would be to rethink how it appoints regional heads More so since Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam (a former Shiv Sainik) who now has resigned was put at the helm despite resistance from other factions just because he was close to the Congress vice-president A few days ago the BJP pushed Congress out from the second position in Zila Panchayat elections in Odisha and before that in Tripura by-elections The Congress had performed poorly in all other urban civic bodies and rural Panchayat elections held last year as well even during the peak of public hardship that was caused by demonetisation The BJP swept the Pune polls retained Nagpur municipal corporations and has made a handsome performance in other municipal corporations It has all the reasons to be jubilant but the fact that despite nearly trebling its seats from 31 seats in 2012 to 82 in 2017 the fact that the BJP is not the single largest party has been a bit of a dampener for the party Though it’s a phenomenal performance but still there is a slight uneasiness because of the fact that Shiv Sena has added two more seats as compared to the BJP The Sena won 84 seats increasing its tally by nine seats from what it had in the outgoing Corporation In the 227-member BMC no party has a clear majority A fractured mandate like this is loaded with possibilities of new political alignment in the state and by consequence at the Centre since the Sena is part of BJP-lead government both in the state and at the Centre Given the nature of the present relationship between Shiv Sena and the BJP there is a strong possibility the two parties may not join hands to run the BMC There is a great deal of reluctance on either side to form yet another alliance when they actually are so bitterly opposed to each other Since Sena is the single largest party in the BMC it would first get the opportunity to find majority numbers and run the mega corporation The onus is thus on Sena or Uddahav Thackeray to call up Devendra Fadnavis and other senior BJP leaders to seek support Thackeray had been targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi on almost all issues under the sun He has been also seeing virtues in Congress or Nehru-Gandhi in particular Will Thackeray change his course and mellow down or will he become even more aggressive against Modi and the BJP Thackeray may seek support from his estranged cousin Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and the Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party although both these parties have been totally marginalised The NCP won nine seats whereas the MNS won a mere seven If these two parties agree to support the Shiv Sena that would take Shiv Sena’s numbers to 100 still 14 away from the required 114 Now in an unlikely possibility if the others which include Samajwadi Party Asaduddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen and Independents that make up to 14 back Shiv Sena the regional outfit would barely make the majority mark without seeking help from Congress and the BJP The BJP will get a chance to form a government only if the Shiv Sena can’t muster those numbers And if that happens it would then be BJP’s turn to seek support from the Shiv Sena or chart out another route seeking support from MNS and NCP But even with help from MNS NCP and others the BJP numbers would reach only 112 Either the Congress or Shiv Sena has to support the BJP if it wishes to run the corporation Support from the Congress to the BJP is of course in a realm of impossibility while time will only tell if some thaw develops between the Shiv Sena and BJP when it comes to numbers A BJP leader cryptically told Firstpost that "at the moment we are looking at all possibilities Nothing is ruled in nothing is ruled out Let us see how things follow" If the alliance between Shiv Sena and the BJP in BMC does not happen again then the question is: will that impact the Devendra Fadnavis-led BJP-Sena government in Maharashtra And if that be the case then will Sena pull out from Modi government at the Centre Well nobody has an answer to that Shiv Sena is not just an original ally of the BJP (since 1989) but the two have been ideologically in sync as well Sena’s departure if at all from the NDA government may create some turbulence in Maharastra but the Fadnavis government in all likelihood will survive That will be with thanks from the NCP whose boss Sharad Pawar was recently honoured with the second highest civilian award — Padma Vibhushan — by the Modi government Though the Sena has its representative — Anant Geete as heavy industries and public enterprises minister — in the Modi cabinet the party does not have any impact at the centre But the party’s numbers in Parliament and in the Maharastra Assembly will have an important role to play when president and vice-president elections take place in the next four months time In the last two presidential elections Sena had ditched the BJP to support Congress candidates Pratibha Patil and Pranab Mukherjee The complexity of the Sena-BJP relationship gets magnified because there would be some other civic bodies where Sena and BJP might need support from each other as well In a recent interview when Amit Shah was repeatedly asked about Thackeray’s attack on Modi and the uneasy relationship between the BJP had and Shiv Sena the BJP president cryptically suggested to wait for the results of the Maharashtra civic bodies polls He maintained that the Shiv Sena and the BJP were going to the polls as rivals it was only natural for Uddhav hackeray to take on the BJP as any rival would do and in turn the local BJP leaders responded in the same fashion No other civic poll results have been debated and discussed nationally as the Maharashtra civic bodies results were particularly the results of the BMC These results have a long-term implication for the state and for the centre It’s also the time to see how an astute politician like Sharad Pawar will play his cards

produce he said And now for some good news The data are strangely absent from most discussions about the inadequacies of science education in the United States But a new report from the National Science Foundation (NSF) finds that the number of Americans pursuing advanced degrees in science and engineering has risen sharply over the past decade and stands at an all-time high US politicians are constantly complaining that the nation’s system of higher education isn’t producing the high-tech workforce needed to keep the country’s economy competitive And one big reason they say is a lack of student interest in the so-called STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) fields But the numbers at least for graduate education tell a different story An NSF analysis released today shows that graduate enrollment in science and engineering programs at US institutions increased 35% from 2000 to 2010 to a record 556532 What experts regard as an even more sensitive barometer of student interest has shot up even faster with first-time full-time graduate enrollment in STEM programs registering a 50% increase over the decade A closer analysis of the numbers which come from NSF’s annual Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering offers still more encouraging demographic news Although foreign students make up 30% of the total enrollment in US graduate science and engineering programs and while they constitute a majority in several fields their slice of the overall pie has not grown in the past decade Rather the pools of US citizens and those with temporary visas each grew by 35% Individuals and organizations trying to attract more women and minorities into careers in science and engineering also have cause for celebration The number of female graduate students in STEM fields grew by 40% over the decade outpacing the 30% growth rate for men Likewise the growth of Hispanic and African-American STEM graduate students rose by 65% and 50% respectively outpacing the 35% growth for the overall population The author of the report NSF’s Kelly Kang points out that the increasing interest in STEM degrees among US students is not a new phenomenon She says her analysis simply provides additional evidence of a decade-long trend That is certainly true On the other hand it can take a long time for politicians to abandon arguments based on outdated numbers and to embrace new data that make the opposite case The latest information from NSF has the potential to change minds and in turn influence the debate about preparing the next

Collection/Getty Images October 27 1972 cover of LIFE magazine Co Rentmeester—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images 1 of 11 Advertisement Polaroid used this years CES to showcase four new products that perfectly demonstrate that new mentality: The Cube an entry-level action camera about the size of four casino dice stacked together and designed by Ammunition a California-based firm headed up by former Apple designer Robert Brunner; the Zip an inkless mobile printer that makes two-by-three inch sticky-back prints of your smartphone snaps; the iZone a tiny zoom camera that uses your cellphone as a viewfinder; and the Socialmatic a rectangular Android-powered smart camera with a built-in inkless printer that harkens back to Polaroids days of yore Cube Polaroid Zip Polaroid All are novel colorful products aimed squarely at photography-obsessed millennials and teens And while you might not expect digitally-native kids to care much about instant-print photography in the days of Instagram and Snapchat Hardy said his new products have been a hit though he didnt share precise sales numbers "[Teens] have been born into digital born into touchscreens and having cameras with you on your phone" Hardy said "So to them to see a single-purpose device designed to print the photograph you just took is magic The biggest purchasers of our instant products are very much this teenage demographic who love instant photograph And what theyre doing is theyre taking photographs using our instant cameras and then they take those hard photos they just got and they get their phone out and they take a picture and upload it to Instagram” Polaroids getting in on the software game too Just before CES it announced a partnership with Blipfoto an online photography community that limits users to uploading only a single photo every day Blipfotos biggest selling point for users is that it can automatically cook up coffee table photo books after users are on the service for a year Those photo books says Hardy give new value to users photographs in a time when the sheer number of images we capture makes each one a little more ephemeral and a little less valuable "[Blipfoto] goes back to this concept of curation sharing and documenting and annotating something that has treasured value" Hardy said “Its not locked in your shoebox in the attic anymore its something that you can now share publicly but also turn into something physical" Blipfoto Founder Joe Tree told TIME that his users response to the Polaroid parternship which turned Blipfoto into Polaroid Blipfoto has been "overwhelmingly positive" a rare reaction in tight-knit Internet communities so often resistive to change of any kind Polaroid has no guarantee of instant success While some young users might flock to its new Socialmatic and Zip instant-printing devices it remains to be seen just how many millennials and teens really want tangible copies of their mobile photosespecially when the Socialmatic costs $299 the Zip $129 and the paper for either around $20 for 30 sheets And shortly after Polaroid introduced the $99 Cube camera GoPro which dominates the action camera market announced a $129 entry-level model called the Hero Still Hardy is confident theres plenty of room for the new Polaroid to keep developing "We werent surprised that GoPro felt like it needed to respond" he said "We just feel like our product addresses a much different demographic Were here to grow the market not steal share If we wanted to do a me-too product we would have There are guys out there that do me-too type products that dont have a brand and dont have any kind of DNA around them From our perspective thats just not how we want to go to market” Write to Alex Fitzpatrick at alexfitzpatrick@timecomAs

claim the HDP denies “It is not us (the HDP) who has taken the decision to start this war and intensify it” Demirtas said according to AP “They want to create a civil war and the last two days have been rehearsals for that” Demirtas has also questioned whether a general election scheduled for Nov 1 could go ahead while temporary military curfews were in place in dozens of areas in the countrys
