deadly earthquake that struck L’Aquila Italy in April 2009 should each be jailed for 4 years That was the request made today by prosecutors in a manslaughter trial taking place in the central Italian city The seven were full or acting members of Italy’s National Commission for the Forecast and Prevention of Major Risks The panel met on 31 March 2009 in L’Aquila to assess the danger posed by an ongoing series of seismic tremors known as a swarm that had been shaking the town and the surrounding area for the previous 3 months The scientists engineers and a public official are accused of having carried out a superficial risk analysis and of having provided the townsfolk with a false sense of security a week before the quake struck The seven defendants are: Franco Barberi a volcanologist at the University of Rome (Roma Tre) and the commission’s then-vice-president; Enzo Boschi a geophysicist at the University of Bologna and at the time president of Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV); Gian Michele Calvi a seismic engineer at the University of Pavia; Mauro Dolce a seismic engineer and director of seismic risk at Italy’s Civil Protection Department (DPC); Claudio Eva a seismologist at the University of Genova; and Giulio Selvaggi a seismologist at INGV; alongside DPC’s then-deputy head Bernardo De Bernardinis The trial started in September last year and has seen more than 100 witnesses testify including many relatives and friends of the victims of the quake as well as geophysicists engineers public officials psychologists and an anthropologist along with the seven defendants themselves Yesterday in the 24th hearing public prosecutor Fabio Picuti presented an 8-hour summary of the case against the indicted His arguments drew on witness statements as well as a draft version of the minutes of the 31 March meeting not available when he first formulated the charges in 2010 That document includes a number of controversial statements not contained in the official minutes including a reference to the discredited idea that small tremors tend to reduce the chance of a bigger quake because they discharge energy That concept was cited by many of the victims’ relatives as having persuaded their loved ones to stay indoors in the early hours of 6 April 2009 Today Picuti’s colleague Roberta D’Avolio argued how specific victims of the 2009 earthquake were persuaded by the statements of the commission which were relayed to the public via press reports to stay inside on the night of the quake The next few weeks will see lawyers presenting civil claims followed by closing arguments from defense lawyers Judge Marco Billi is due to reach a verdict by 23 October Yetnews about kidney black-marketeeringis common the outrage involving poor illiterate patients duped of their organs for paltry sums of money or cash-strapped donors parting with their kidneys in exchange for meagre compensation Such largescale scandals highlight the economic disparityin the country However another widely prevalent skew in kidney donation — gender disparity — is just as shocking when the bald numbers are scanned Doctors at Narayana Health a large Bangalore-headquartered hospital chain run by well-known cardiac surgeon Devi Shetty found that an overwhelming 65 per cent of kidney donors in its hospitals are women whereas 70 per cent of kidney recipients are male Kidney donation is a medically proven safe process that has no bearing on a person’s lifespan Yet a combination of economic social and cultural factors as well as coercion tilts these statistics against women The pressure on the woman to donate her organ is so extreme that in order to rescue the reluctant woman nephrologists like Vincent Lloyd head of department and senior consultant Nephrology of Narayana Hospitals are sometimes impelled to summon the family and state that the woman is “medically unfit” to make the kidney donation When a woman confides in the social worker or doctor that she is being forced to donate her organ against her will doctors have learned to come up with reasons on the unsuitability of the particular donor Both men and women are equally susceptible to renal disease but of every 100 kidney transplants that Narayana conducts 65 to 70 donors are women and 70 recipients are men says a recent study released by its nephrologists Voluntary kidney donations are classified “altruistic” but are neither voluntary nor altruistic in some cases The numerical pattern weighing against the female gender predictably repeats in other hospitals including in corporate hospital chains catering to the well-heeled not just in Bangalore but in cities across the country The predominant donor is the wife of the recipient but other female relatives such as sister mother and grandmother and even mother-in-law are called into the equation to give a new lease of life to their male relatives “The pressure is much more when the women are uneducated financially dependent living with their in-laws and having no financial or other support from their parents’ side” says Lloyd If the woman is young employed and has the support of her parents she could stand up and refuse the organ donation but such cases are rare he said The social and familial pressure on women to donate is immense The pressure stems from women feeling more responsible for the welfare of the family Mothers and sisters counted for the most frequent donors after the wives Role compulsions such as “My husband/ brother/ son is more important than me” create pressure and cultural stereotyping of the sacrificial role played by the wife/ mother/ sister plays an important role in the woman’s “altruism” says Usha Bapat a psychiatric social worker who has worked for decades in the field of renal transplants at St John’s Hospital and is now a consultant at Jain Hospital “It is culturally ingrained in Indian women that they have to sacrifice” says Bapat She knows of divorced widowed or otherwise financially dependent women feeling obliged to repay their families by donating their kidneys It all boils down to the social complexities that Indian women have to live with says Narayana’s Lloyd which felicitated five kidney donors this week all women In some renal transplant programmes in India women outnumber men as kidney donors by a ratio of 6:1 he said Narayana wants to raise awareness on this by collating and disseminating the numbers In general gender inequity is widely prevalent in India when it comes to access to medical care In complicated diseases like renal failure men are much more likely to arrive at hospitals to receive medical attention than women Even if diagnosed women fail to show up for treatment because kidney haemodialysis is an expensive process That also makes women less likely to receive dialysis treatments and gives them even slimmer chances of receiving renal transplants For instance studies in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh show worse trends for women in both dialysis and transplantsThe only exceptions are in the case of the kidney sale scandals Here a majority of the donors are men and a majority of the recipientstoo are men Women who confide their circumstances to social workers during personal interviews fear lifelong repercussions for refusing to donate their organ “We have to deal with this very delicately” says Bapat So that she does not get blamed and shamed for the rest of her life the woman declaresin front of the family “Oh I wish I could have given

released a long-anticipated policy that will require its grantees to make their peer-reviewed research papers freely available within 12 months of publication in a journal The agency is not creating its own public archive of full-text papers but instead will send those searching for papers to publishers’ own websites Although that’s what most observers expected it’s not what open-access advocates hoped for “I’m disappointed” says Heather Joseph executive director of the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) a Washington DC–based group which represents academic libraries But scientific publishers who worry that full-text archives will harm journal revenues praised the plan “This is a very good way to do things because it minimizes the cost to taxpayers without having to duplicate existing infrastructure” says Frederick Dylla CEO of the American Institute of Physics and a board member of a coalition of publishers that runs CHORUS (Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States) a system for providing links to papers on journal’s sites (The coalition includes AAAS which publishes ScienceInsider) Despite some grumbling today’s NSF announcement marks a milestone: It means that essentially all of the major US federal science agencies now have a public-access policy That reflects a push starting in the late 1990s by some scientists and activists to make the results of taxpayer-funded research freely available to the public Since 2008 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has required its grantees to submit their accepted manuscripts to its PubMed Central repository which posts full-text manuscripts online within 12 months of publication And in February 2013 the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy ordered science agencies to come up with similar policies However the White House did not specify if agencies should create their own full-text paper archives or find other solutions Federal officials were heeding concerns from many publishers that PubMed Central infringes on their copyright and that advertising and other revenues would drop if readers were not directed to journals’ own websites NSF does not plan to build its own version of PubMed Central Instead the agency will work with the Department of Energy (DOE) to create a repository for NSF-funded papers by using an existing DOE system called PAGES (Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science) The NSF repository will contain abstracts authors the journal issue and other metadata No more than 12 months after a paper’s publication the repository will provide a link to the full-text paper on the publisher’s website or if that is not available to a PDF of the final manuscript hosted in a separate full-text DOE archive It will be a “dark archive” however—it will be invisible to the public and exist only to preserve articles long term In the future NSF may allow access to papers through other repositories such as PubMed Central and those run by universities But for now the system will be quite similar to DOE’s own public-access plan announced last August The problem Joseph says is that providing access through publishers’ websites means that text and data mining across articles will be hindered by different journal policies and formats “I just worry about having another subset of federally funded articles resident on publishers’ websites where we rely on those websites for any kind of text or data mining then a PDF in a dark archive that we can’t do anything with” Joseph says But Dylla says it’s a better system because it points readers to the most authoritative version of a paper Publishers are working on a way of allowing full-text and data mining across all of their journals but there still aren’t many researchers doing that kind of study he says (An NSF representative says the agency “is exploring ways to enable these kinds of operations” while still “protecting the integrity of the systems and collections”) NSF plans to launch the repository by the end of 2015 for voluntary submissions In January 2016 the agency’s policy will become a requirement for papers resulting from proposals submitted after that date After they deposit their papers in the DOE-run archive—either the final accepted manuscript or the published paper—researchers must include the paper’s unique identifier when they submit research proposals and reports to their program officers or else the paper won’t count (The policy also covers conference proceedings) NSF says that because the policy is not retroactive and NSF grants run for several years it may be 5 years before all active awards are covered Several other science agencies are planning full-text archives along the lines of PubMed Central NASA is working with NIH to create a “NASA-branded” version of PubMed Central for the space agency And the US Department of Agriculture is building a full-text paper archive called PubAg The Department of Defense which announced its draft public-access policy this week is creating a public repository that will include all full-text manuscripts as well as links to articles on publishers’ websites (Other agency policies are listed here) A few science agencies haven’t yet announced their public-access policies including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the US Geological Survey Meanwhile SPARC is cheering the reintroduction in the House of Representatives and Senate today week of a bill known as the FASTR (Fair Access to Science and Technology Research) Act

construction inside a 5 axis vertical milling machine during a tour of Area 404 the hardware R&D lab at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park Top News Facebook built its fortune on the internet that non-physical space where people share updates and digital videos with friends But deep inside its Silicon Valley headquarters engineers have stocked a new lab with computerised lathes industrial mills and tools for making physical goods It’s not a factory for mass-producing smartphones or other consumer products Rather it’s where engineers will be working on some of the high-tech gadgetry needed for the company’s long-term plans to connect people through smart devices virtual-reality headsets and high-flying drones that deliver internet signals via laser to remote parts of the world And like Google’s celebrated X lab where the internet search giant pursues “moonshot” projects such as self-driving cars Facebook’s new research facility demonstrates that in Silicon Valley leading tech companies are rarely content to keep doing the same thing “When you think about connecting the world you have to build different types of hardware to help people connect” said Jay Parikh Facebook’s head of engineering and infrastructure To get virtual reality right he added Facebook needs to refine hardware such as lenses and processors The lab will be a space for engineers to design energy-efficient servers for Facebook data centers test new laser mounts and drone propellers and perfect a prototype 360-degree video camera that Facebook unveiled at a conference in April Facebook announced the lab’s opening Wednesday and invited journalists for a tour It’s been dubbed Area 404 an inside joke that plays off the “error 404” message internet users see when they try to visit a web page that can’t be found Facebook says its engineers had long talked about wanting such a workspace but it couldn’t be found because it didn’t exist until now In this photo taken Tuesday Aug 2 2016 model maker Spencer Burns leads a tour of Area 404 the hardware R&D lab at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park The company won’t say how much it spent on the lab but it took months to build the facility which is about a third the size of a football field inside a refitted office building on its main campus The lab has long workbenches for electrical engineers to spread out their gear and a room full of the lathes and milling machines each the size of a small truck It also has a water-powered cutting machine that can slice sheet metal several inches thick an electron microscope and a CT scanner to examine how materials react to heat electrical surges or other stress Facebook became a Silicon Valley powerhouse and Wall Street darling because its vast online network is a mecca for digital advertisers The company sold more than $6 billion worth of ads in the April-June quarter reaping more than $2 billion in profit That offers plenty of leeway to invest in new ventures Facebook says it spent $48 billion on research and development in 2015 nearly doubling its budget from the previous year Two years ago the company spent $2 billion to buy Oculus VR a startup that makes high-end gear for virtual reality Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has predicted that virtual reality will be a leading platform for communication entertainment education and business in the future In recent speeches he outlined a 10-year vision for Facebook that includes services based on virtual reality artificial intelligence and internet access for the world’s most under-developed regions The Oculus operation has its own lab in Seattle while Facebook’s drone team is based in Somerset England They aren’t relocating but Parikh said engineers from both groups will also use the new facility Zuckerberg has hinted at other aspirations too This spring he announced the formation of a mysterious research-and-development group known as “Building 8” It’s led by prominent engineer Regina Dugan a former director of the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or DARPA the agency that created the internet in the late 1960s Before joining Facebook Dugan ran a Google team that specialized in “rapid innovation” of new tech gadgets Her projects included a location-tracking smartphone camera for creating 3-D virtual worlds a technology that Lenovo will include in the Phab2 Pro out this month Dugan’s group will use the Area 404 lab but Facebook wouldn’t talk about specific projects she will undertake Analysts say it’s too early to know if these ideas are “vanity projects” or if they will boost Facebook’s bottom line But rivals including Google Amazon and Microsoft have similar ambitions some involving drones tablets or other hardware Facebook says it spent $48 billion on research and development in 2015 nearly doubling its budget from the previous year “When you’re big enough you need to think bigger picture and longer term” said Bob O’Donnell chief analyst at Technalysis Research Facebook could wait for others to develop new gadgets he said but the company can learn by designing hardware on its own and seeing how its software works with it He said Facebook could even license its hardware ideas for others to manufacture Aside from Oculus most of Facebook’s hardware isn’t aimed at the consumer market Several years ago the tech industry was abuzz with rumors that Zuckerberg wanted to build a Facebook smartphone That never happened although Facebook created special software for an HTC phone that didn’t sell well Instead Facebook has led an industry effort to develop more energy-efficient computer centers by sharing server designs with other companies Similarly Facebook says it developed the 360-degree video camera to show other inventors what’s possible in new camera designs Those designs could in turn produce more video content for the social network to share Facebook executives say their solar-powered drones are also meant as prototypes in the hope that telecommunications companies will use their designs While Zuckerberg says internet access can spur economic development in poor nations Facebook also stands to benefit if more people get
