Gareth Southgate is ready for talks with the FA over a new deal after guiding the Three Lions to the World Cup semi-finals.Southgate and the FA agreed on a contract worth about £2.5 million a year, plus bonuses, to succeed Sam Allardyce in 2016. His current contract will run out in 2020 but has a built-in break option after the World Cup.A source close to the FA said: ‘Gareth is set to sign a new contract and both sides want to get a deal agreed quickly.’The option would have allowed the FA to replace Southgate on the cheap if he had failed to deliver on their expectations. But, after leading England to the nation’s best World Cup since Italia 90, Southgate is in a strong position, and the FA are keen to extend his deal.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.It could be worth up to £5m a year, including bonuses, to Southgate and ensure he will lead the country through the 2020 European Championship and the Qatar World Cup in 2022. The FA are also set to thrash out a settlement to release them from a £6m image rights contract.England players’ commercial work has been organized for the last decade by 1966 Entertainment, an outside agency whose contract runs until 2030.Following the World Cup in Russia, the FA want to work directly with England players rather than having to go through a third party for all sponsorship matters.A source close to the FA said: ‘It is in the interests of all parties to agree to a deal, so we need to come to a figure which compensates 1966 for loss of revenues.’
Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich were tipped off as favorites to win the German Bundesliga at the end of the season.Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are the favorites to win the German Bundesliga this season.At least that was what many experts said before the start of the 2018-2019 season.Now Dortmund has a seven-point lead over the Bavarians with just 14 games left to play.“We still have 14 games and a lot can happen in that time,” said Bayern’s coach Niko Kovac to the league’s official website after his team lost against Bayer Leverkusen today.“We’ve now lost a game having won seven in a row in the Bundesliga. It’s frustrating, but we now just need to ensure that we go on a new run.”“We don’t get any points by talking anyway, so it doesn’t matter what I say. What were we missing? Good question,” Bayern’s forward Thomas Müller wasn’t very happy to answer.“Of course we look at the other results after the game. We can’t leave here completely satisfied because we would’ve like to have won the game,” Marco Reus, Dortmund’s captain commented.“There were periods in the second half, and at times in the first half, where we made a few mistakes. We’ll have to work on this.”Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We’re not satisfied. We look at each other and we all know we’d have liked to have won here,” Dortmund’s goalkeeper Roman Bürki said.“Then it would have been a top weekend. Although Bayern losing is a consolation, we’d rather have won.”“Obviously we came here trying to win, but you can’t win every game and unfortunately we got a draw today,” Borussia winger Jadon Sancho commented.“It’s still good and we still got a point. We just need to keep working hard and the next game, we’ll come back.”FULL TIME | Stalemate at Frankfurt.We keep on marching.#SGEBVB 1-1 pic.twitter.com/zeobuCcENp— Borussia Dortmund (@BlackYellow) February 2, 2019

Professor Rose Marie Bell Antoine, explained that the meetings were happening in all CARICOM member states and would result in a report for the heads of government meeting in July.Perspectives were varied and included issues related to addiction, negative health reactions, positive health benefits, so called irrational treatment of users by the justice system, de-escalation of gang related crime and the potential for agri-business – all linked to marijuana. Here are just a few comments by various persons who attended the town hall meeting.“I hate the fact that people smoke cigarettes which are filled with over 500 chemicals but yet I cannot smoke a plant.”“With sound regulation there are lots of opportunities, it all depends on how the government and the private sector involve say how this should go forward.”“If they legalize it guess what, I don’t have to buy it from anybody, I have a bottle full of seeds now. What am I going to spend $5.00 for a joint for when I can grow myself a whole plant.”“It turns criminals out of our own sons, we’re turning criminals out of our own sons.”“Legalization ends the violence, what did Portugal do, Portugal legalized, the violence stopped ”“It destroys families, I don’t know if any of you have had any relatives that have been addicted.”The comments were chronicled by the panel and will be merged with other perspectives on the controversial issue, which continues to grab headlines in The Bahamas.#MagneticMediaNews#legalizemarijuanaintheBahamas
Kylian Mbappe believes he has already become a leader at Paris Saint-Germain after his impressive second-half cameo inspired them to a 2-0 win over MarseillePSG manager Thomas Tuchel benched Mbappe along with Adrien Rabiot from Sunday’s Le Classique for disciplinary reasons after arriving late for the pre-game team talk.However, with the scoreline goalless, Tuchel substituted Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting for Mbappe in the 62nd-minute and the youngster responded emphatically.It took just three minutes for Mbappe to score the opener for PSG before he later assisted Julian Draxler’s injury-time goal to seal a 2-0 win.Now the 19-year-old admits he feels like a leader for a team that wants to down in history.“The team needed this win,” Mbappe told Canal+.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“A great team relies on its leaders and they have to make a difference at key moments. I think I can take on that role and I did.“We have to continue on the right path. Marseille showed they have a team that plays with the ball. They had several sequences of play where we were in trouble, so all credit to them.“But we were able to be effective and we leave with the win. We are competitors. We want to go down in history. We mustn’t disregard any match.”Mbappe has now scored 12 goals and added four assists in 10 appearances across all competitions this season.PSG have also now won all eleven of their opening Ligue 1 fixtures this term, which hasn’t been accomplished in any of Europe’s top five leagues since Tottenham in 1960.
David ShankerChicago-based B2B publisher EnsembleIQ has tapped market research exec David Shanker as its next CEO, effective immediately, the company revealed Wednesday.Shanker arrives from Lightspeed Research, a subsidiary of Kantar, where he spent the last four years as CEO of the Americas. Prior to that, he was CEO of affiliate marketing platform PinchMe, and has also held executive roles at Ipsos Group and Information Resources Inc.“I see great potential in EnsembleIQ, its business units and its people,” said Shanker in a statement. “The time is right for dramatic growth that will catapult the company towards new heights of service and value in the retail, CPG, and technology industries.”The appointment ends a six-month search at EnsembleIQ that began when former CEO Peter Hoyt departed the company last August—a move reportedly initiated by the company’s board of directors.“When we appointed Peter as CEO of the combined companies, we recognized that Peter’s tenure in this role would not be long-term,” executive chairman Alan Glass told Folio: at the time. “This was something that matched up with Peter’s own personal goals and desires after the sale of his company.” Hoyt had been CEO of EnsembleIQ since 2016, shortly after the company was formed through the merger of three smaller firms: Stagnito Business Information, Edgell Communications, and the Path to Purchase Institute—where he had served as executive director prior to the merger.Following its subsequent acquisition of a handful of Canadian-based publications from Rogers Media late in 2016, EnsembleIQ now comprises 17 media brands that primarily serve the retail and CPG space, many of which carry their own complement of events and award programs.

American designer Tommy Hilfiger, founder and principal designer of the high-end apparel company, finds his own style limited and boring.When questioned by the media about his personal wardrobe and style, the 65-year-old designer said that he feels it’s more of a uniform. “I’m pretty boring when it comes to clothes. I have 50 white shirts, 50 chinos, 50 pairs of jeans and 25 pairs of white sneakers. Some navy and grey suits and black and brown shoes,” Hilfiger was quoted saying to a magazine by IANS.Hilfiger also said that he felt alienated in school because he was dyslexic. At the age of 17, he says he began to fund his business by running his first shop from the boot of his car.”I came to the conclusion when I was 17 that I should be in business,” he said. “I drove five hours to New York City and I bought 20 pairs of bell-bottom jeans on the streets in the Village. I took them back to my school parking lot, sold them to my friends out of the trunk of my car, and with the profits, I opened my first shop and my business started taking off.” The Tommy Hilfiger brand, which offers a breadth of collections ranging from tailored clothing, sportswear, casual apparel, sportswear, denim, accessories, underwear and footwear, began operating in India through Tommy Hilfiger Arvind Fashion Pvt Ltd, a 50:50 joint venture between the US premium lifestyle brand and Ahmedabad-based textile company, Arvind Ltd.

Explore further Journal information: Science Morality clearly plays a role in modern society, in many instances, it might even be cited as one of the prime preventers of chaos—people see, hear and engage in things that they deem moral, or immoral, and tend to respond in certain ways because of it. But because of its ephemeral nature, scientists have had difficulty not only defining and measuring it but perhaps more importantly, finding the ways in which it works in people and in society as a whole. In this latest effort, the researchers sought to learn more about how morality works by periodically asking people directly about their observations, feelings and acts.In the experiment, 1,252 people found via social media, agreed to download an app to their phone that allowed the researchers to query them at random times regarding moral acts they engaged in or witnessed during the prior hour, how it made them feel and how they responded. Text messages were sent to the volunteers and received from them over a period of three days. Afterwards, the researchers analyzed the 13,240 messages they’d received from the volunteers to see if they could spot patterns, trends or other pertinent information.Among the host of findings, the team discovered that those who considered themselves religious didn’t necessarily commit more or less moral or immoral acts than those who did not. They also found that people who were the target of a moral act tended to feel better about themselves than did those who committed a moral act themselves—and those same people tended to also be more likely to commit a moral act later on—social scientists call it moral contagion.The researchers also found evidence that suggests political affiliation had an impact on morality as well—those of a liberal persuasion, for example, tended to focus more on fairness between people, while those who saw themselves as more conservative tended to respond more strongly to acts of respecting authority or the status quo.The study marks a new foray into sociological testing techniques using new technology and might just be one of many to come that seek to better define the rules by which people behave in society. (Phys.org) —A team of researchers with members from the U.S., Germany and the Netherlands has uncovered some new ideas about the nature of morality by using a smartphone app. In their paper published in the journal Science, the researchers describe how they enlisted a large group of people to serve as volunteers in a morality experiment, and what they learned as a result. Jesse Graham, of the University of Southern California offers a Perspective piece in the same journal issue.

Credit: Wilhelm Hofmann More information: Morality in everyday life, Science 12 September 2014: Vol. 345 no. 6202 pp. 1340-1343 DOI: 10.1126/science.1251560 ABSTRACTThe science of morality has drawn heavily on well-controlled but artificial laboratory settings. To study everyday morality, we repeatedly assessed moral or immoral acts and experiences in a large (N = 1252) sample using ecological momentary assessment. Moral experiences were surprisingly frequent and manifold. Liberals and conservatives emphasized somewhat different moral dimensions. Religious and nonreligious participants did not differ in the likelihood or quality of committed moral and immoral acts. Being the target of moral or immoral deeds had the strongest impact on happiness, whereas committing moral or immoral deeds had the strongest impact on sense of purpose. Analyses of daily dynamics revealed evidence for both moral contagion and moral licensing. In sum, morality science may benefit from a closer look at the antecedents, dynamics, and consequences of everyday moral experience. © 2014 Phys.org How do former churchgoers build a new moral identity?

Netflix’s Marco PoloNetflix’s big-budget action adventure series Marco Polo has been handed a second run less than a month after season one debuted.The show, which follows famous explorer Marco Polo’s early days in the court of Yuan dynasty Emperor Kublai Khan in the 13th century, launched on December 12 as the streaming service’s latest original.Meanwhile, Netflix has set premiere dates for four new originals.Tina Fey’s Universal Television comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which Netflix picked up after NBC dumped it, will launch on March 6; while family drama Bloodline, which is from Sony Pictures Television, premieres on March 20.Marvel’s Daredevil, from Marvel Television, then follows on April 10, with Skydance Productions’ irreverent comedy Grace and Frankie rounding off the launches on May 8.On the kids content front Netflix launches episodes of The Adventures of Puss in Boots on January 16 in selected territories, as TBI reported this week, followed by a global debut for Ever After High: Spring Unsprung on February 6 and the second season of Mako Mermaids to launch on North America, Latin America, UK and Ireland, the Nordics and Benelux on February 13.
British content is under threat as budgets get cut, with global players highly unlikely to make up the shortfall, according to BBC deputy director-general Anne Bulford.Anne BulfordSpeaking at the Media & Telecoms Conference in London, Bulford said the BBC’s ability to fund UK content had been hit by financial constraints, while commercial broadcasters had been hit by reduced advertising revenues.“At the BBC, high-quality British programming has always been our priority. We have long been the largest single investor in British ideas and talent. But as our income has fallen in real terms over recent years, our ability to fund original British content has diminished,” she said.“Of course, this is not just about the BBC: over the same period commercial broadcasters, traditionally major investors in British content have been hit by reduced TV advertising revenues. But it’s no coincidence that, as the amount the BBC has been able to spend on British content has gone down, so has the amount spent on British content overall.”Bulford said this trend is likely to continue, with a likely drop of £500 million in spending on British programming by 2026.BBC director general Tony Hall has cited this number before following research from a commissioned Mediatique report.Bulford said there was a lack of “any real evidence that this is a gap that will be made up by the big, new global players”.On the contrary, she said, “the evidence suggests that their investment decisions are increasingly likely to focus on a narrow range of very expensive, very high-end content – big bankers that they can rely on to have international appeal and attract large, global audiences”.“What this adds up to is that the volume and breadth of British content that British audiences rely upon is now under serious threat. There is a real risk that British stories that speak directly to British audiences will reduce. And that, over time, if we allow that to happen, our British sense of identity will weaken.”Bulford said that the BBC “has shrunk as the market has grown” since the licence fee that funds it was frozen in 2010.This has happened at a time when the cost of making programmes has risen dramatically, she said.Bulford said that the BBC would have to be more creative in finding solutions, looking not only to co-productions and commercial activities to broader forms of cooperation.“Alongside the real potential for co-production and commercial growth, I am very much aware that we need to explore other potential options to increase our income if we are to keep pace with the global players. And if we are successfully to safeguard British content and British creativity,” she said.
Spanish public broadcaster RTVE and commercial broadcasters Mediaset España and Atresmedia have confirmed that they have teamed up to launch a new joint interactive platform based on HbbTV, with plans for a new OTT TV service to follow.The platform, branded LOVEStv, which will be open to other digital-terrestrial broadcasters in the country, promises to “improve the experience of consuming television, allowing interactivity, thanks to HbbTV technology”.The trio said they were working together to launch the platform that will group the audiovisual content of all three with the objective of improving the diversity and quality of the free-to-air TV offering and the user experience for those accessing HbbTV services in the country.A second phase of the project will see the launch of a new OTT TV service that will distribute additional content.LOVEStv will launch on June 14 on a trial basis. The service will initially offer catch-up TV content from the previous week, along with startover functionality, and improved programming guide and content recommendations.The joint announcement by the three broadcasters follows press reports in March that they were planning to launch a joint OTT TV service that could see them compete with the likes of Netflix, Movistar+, HBO and Sky in the Spanish market.The Spanish market has seen a spate of OTT TV launches in recent years, with Netflix, HBO and Sky competing in the market along with a number of smaller players. Last year, Chinese technology giant Huawei was reported to be planning a service.There has been an upsurge of interest among European broadcasters in forming partnerships to develop platforms that would allow them better to compete with new internet-based rivals such as Netflix.France Télévisions has formed a programming alliance with fellow pubcasters Rai and ZDF to develop series while also seeking partners for a French OTT TV offering. Plans for an SVOD service have however stalled, with speculation that French broadcasters could develop a free-to-air-focused platform on the model of Hulu first.At the recent DTG Summit in London, UK media regulator Ofcom’s group director and board member Steve Unger predicted the creation of a joint platform by UK broadcasters amid reports that BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and NBC Universal, owner of Channel 5, had been in talks about the possibility of creating a joint streaming offering.

However theAct applies only to a Hindu marriage solemnised in accordance with customary rites and ceremonies such as "saptpadi" (Section 7) and does not recognise live-in relationships A couple sits along the seafront promenade at dusk in Mumbai’s suburbs May 16 2012 Reuters/Vivek Prakash Section 125(1)(A) of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPc) states that a woman who has divorced and not remarried can claim maintenance from her ex-husband in cases where he neglects or refuses to help her financially This provision also applies only to married couples who subsequently divorce Under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act 2005 a magistrate may order monetary relief in the form of maintenance to an aggrieved person who has suffered domestic violence under Section 20(D) Notably this Act covers a broader range of relationships as a "domestic relationship" — asdefined in Section 2(F)— rather than marriages alone Indian courts on the right to maintenance in live-in relationships Notwithstanding the absence of laws granting the right to maintenance in live-in relationships Indian courts have readily granted this right to partners who live together on a number of occasions In October 2010 the Supreme Court in the Veluswamy vs Patchaiammal case recognised the right to "palimony"— the equivalent of alimony in live-in relationships— but limited it to genuine relationships alone not ones in which the partners lived together only for sexual reasons and ones where either partner was married to someone else In this case the court also laid downa number of criteria to determine whether a couple was in a "relationship in the nature of a marriage" (under Section 2(F) of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act which defines a "domestic relationship") The relevant factors are: the couple must hold themselves out to society as being akin to spouses; they must be of legal age to marry; they must be otherwise qualified to enter into a legal marriage including being unmarried; and they must have voluntarily cohabited and held themselves out to the world as being akin to spouses for a significant period of time Additionally the couple must have resided in a "shared household" (as defined under Section 2(A) of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act) In May 2015 the Supreme Court had ruled that under the Hindu Marriage Act a man in a live-in relationship was obliged to pay maintenance to his partner and children from the relationship after it ended In this case the man was married to someone else and was in a live-in relationship with another woman fornine years In July 2016 the Gujarat High Court had recognised that a woman was entitled to seek maintenance under Section 125 of CrPC even if she had not married the man but had been living with him for a reasonably long period of time as his wife More recently in April 2018 the Bombay High Court allowed a married woman who was in a live-in relationship with another man for 15 years to claim maintenance from him under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act The court had emphasised the welfare objective of the Act to protect women from violence and held that the term "domestic violence"encompassed physical abuse as well as "economic abuse" (Section 3(A) of the Act) Courts have also recognised other rights in live-in relationships For instance in April 2015 the Supreme Court had ruled that couples in live-in relationships would be presumed to be married and the woman would be entitled to inherit her partner’s legal property Further the burden of disproving the presumption of marriage would lie on the party refuting the presumption The Supreme Court recognised this presumption as early as in 2010 in the case of Madan Mohan Singh vs Rajni Kant where the court had to rule on the legitimacy and right to inheritance of children born out of a live-in relationship File image of the Supreme Court AP In December 2013 the top court had framed guidelines on the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act applyingto live-in relationships recognising that the legislation would apply in case of relationships "in the nature of marriage" Right to maintenance in live-in relationships in other jurisdictions The right to "palimony" is also recognised in the United States where certain states including California have palimony laws in place Interestingly in the United Kingdom a "common-law marriage"— or an informal marriage/marriage in fact—is not recognised Therefore cohabiting couples do not have any right to maintenance or property when they break up The UK Parliament is in the process of considering aCohabitation Rights Bill to grant certain rights to couples in live-in relationships Court precedents in India indicate a strong inclination of judges to rule in favour of granting maintenance to a woman in a live-in relationship In the current case in the Supreme Court it was alleged that the man had promised to marry the woman eventually which further strengthens the case that the couple was in a de-facto or "common-law" marriage It is likely that in this case the Supreme Court will uphold the social welfare objectives of family laws instead of adopting a formalistic approach and allow the woman’s claim for compensation from her partner The author is an LLM

scientific life are many — more so for women taking up this path This series honours those who beat the odds and serve as inspirations for the next generation of Indian science — a generation that is slowly and surely on its way to becoming gender equal *** By Sandhya Ramesh Farah Ishtiaq | 45 | Ecologist and avian disease researcher | Indian Institute of Science Bengaluru We’ve all heard of malaria In school we wrote answers about the female Anopheles mosquito when we were barely old enough to understand the concept of an epidemic This mosquito’s bite spreads the disease we associate with heat sickness and tropical climate It killed over four lakh people in 2015 Interestingly malaria isn’t unique to humans It affects non-human primates mammals reptiles and even birds Each is infected by a specific species of mosquito that acts as a carrier for a single-celled parasite called Plasmodium There are over 200 species of Plasmodium and it’s quite common for them to cause the disease in birds Avian malaria is a subject of study all over the world Not so much in India though “I wanted to study the spread of malaria in birds because there is not a single scientist doing it in India” states Farah Ishtiaq who has been working as a research fellow at the Center for Ecological Sciences (CES) in IISc Bangalore for the past four years Malaria in the Himalayas Nearly all birds we see such as house sparrows parrots and mynahs are susceptible to malaria Though there has been definitive evidence of this for a while until recently the disease wasn’t really being tracked and studied Farah wants to find out how malaria is introduced and if it spreads the same way in birds as it spreads in humans — rampantly in tropical climates To figure this out she needs to go somewhere geographically close to these climates but in a region quite different in terms of temperature —somewhere like the Himalayas “Mosquitoes and cold don’t go together So I wondered if it is possible that birds that live in higher altitudes like the Himalayas evolved without the parasites” she explains She established seven sites across the Himalayas from Dehradun which is at about 600 metres above sea level to Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary which lies at 3400 metres Farah’s team travels to these sites to “sample” birds — that is take their blood samples —during the breeding season Meanwhile her ground personnel sample mosquitoes all year-round “This is to understand how the parasite is transmitted” explains Farah A year in Farah’s shoes The same site in bad (left) and good (right) weather This means that Farah spends four months every year hiking up the mountains setting up traps for mating birds The rest of the year she works from her Bengaluruoffice On a typical day in the Himalayas she hikes up from the campsite at 3 am sets up traps at a low height and waits These bird traps are nets propped up by poles Made of black silk coir the nets are difficult to spot against the background and invariably birds fly into them The birds that her team studies are small enough to pick up quickly draw blood from and release Sometimes they tie a marker ring around the bird’s legs to make sure there are no repeats Farah ringing birds at a high elevation site Her days in her Bengalurulab start at around 10 am Now it is time to analyse the information they have collected from the field The team works together to crunch data on the thousands of birds they have sampled The ringing gear she uses “There are birds that live their whole lives in the Himalayas and there are some species that migrate down to the south in the winter to the warmer climates” Farah says Warmer climates are also where malaria-spreading mosquitoes flourish She has recorded birds that were healthy in the mountains but flew down to the warmer Dehradun in the winter and got infected there These migratory birds then fly back to the mountains during the breeding season in April-May While breeding birds’ immune systems are easily compromised so it is likely that this is when the disease would spread Farah wonders if malaria is non-existent in the mountains or if there are birds there that are immune to it “It’s like a three-piece jigsaw puzzle — there is the parasite the bird and the mosquito How do they all fit together” It is a long-term study and Farah doesn’t have enough data to figure it out just yet Getting a taste of ornithology Farah did her schooling in Delhi and then her undergraduate degree in zoology at the Aligarh Muslim University As the child of two doctors she admits that her mother was not always happy with her choice of career Her father on the other hand was incredibly supportive “He had also encouraged my mother to focus on getting her degree in gynaecology” After her Master’s degree she went on to obtain her PhD in Avian Ecology and Behaviour from the Centre for Wildlife Science at AMU in 1999 Post her PhD Farah was offered a small-but-intensive project: to work with the famed ornithologist Pamela Rasmussen on a bird species that was recently discovered to not be extinct The small and fluffy Forest Spotted Owlet had not been seen after 1884 for a very very long time It had been declared extinct until American ornithologist Rasmussen came along from the Smithsonian Institution at Washington DC During the course of her research for a book on birds in the Indian subcontinent she looked for the bird until she found it in 1997 This species of owl is endemic to the dry deciduous forests of the Central Highlands in India (from Gujarat to Orissa) The bird whisperer Blyth’s reed warbler a European migrant in India Studying small birds is difficult as they are hard to spot Scientists need to know where and when to look so they need details about the birds’ habits — the time of the day (or night) they prefer to be active the kind of trees they like to perch on the food they eat their calls etc Considering that the owlet hadn’t been seen in over a century nearly nothing was known about it “Rasmussen didn’t know what she was looking for and where she should go” reminisces Farah “But after she re-discovered it I studied it with her the next year” After experiments and searches for a whole year Farah became an expert in this owl species She could interpret the different calls of males females and the chicks of the species “What is interesting about this owl is that unlike most other species it is not nocturnal And since 1884 people had been searching for it at the wrong time never finding it” Furthermore the Forest Spotted Owlet is actually quite similar in appearance to another species called the Spotted Owlet The latter has more spots on its back and has a white front while the former has fewer spots and a brown front The Spotted Owlet is also active during the day “So even when they did spot a Forest Spotted Owlet they assumed it’s the Spotted Owlet” Tracking small birds and doing the kind of field work Farah did in Central India is not easy on ecologists “The rocky terrain and extreme heat were particularly challenging” she remembers “But the progress I had made after four months was tremendous so I received more funding and worked for a year” The story is fascinating but when I ask Farah what made her pick this particular project she replies that it wasn’t fully intentional “In ecology or conservation in India beggars can’t be choosers The Bombay Natural History Society had funding for four months and I accepted it” She then moved on to three years of non-academic work where she was instrumental in creating a network of ornithologists and birdwatchers around India called Indian Bird Conservation Network A fascination for diseases However her passion lay elsewhere “I always wanted to study diseases in birds especially malaria” says Farah But as an ecologist she did not have the knowledge to study diseases Disease study needed an understanding of bloodwork which meant a lot of analysis under the microscope “I knew what DNA was and that’s all” she laughed “I’d never had a job in a lab before” She got an opportunity to do her postdoctoral research at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC where she studied the birds of Hawaii for two years Her research focussed on the spread of malaria in the birds endemic to Hawaii Malaria came to Hawaii through birds introduced to the islands in the late 19th century Each group of colonists brought fowl from their own country that carried the malarial parasite As the endemic birds had never encountered this parasite before their immune systems were not prepared for it and the disease rapidly spread wiping out over 90 percent of native birds Studying avian diseases is a well-established field in the US and Farah built up her toolkit She learned how to use molecular biology and genetic markers to study and track diseases Farah then went on to Oxford University for her second postdoc: understanding how parasites colonise islands Islands are isolated and therefore are prime ground for testing hypotheses about how a disease spreads Working for over five years with these unique birds at exotic locations was not only a colourful experience for Farah but also moulded her into an able evolutionary biologist She could now return to India fully prepared to work with the birds here “It was life-changing” she affirms Farah says she is in this field of research in India at exactly the right time There is a lot of interest in diseases spreading in other species due to the H1N1 and Zika epidemic “I am lucky to have fantastic funding that also allows me to make my own decisions in my research I do more field work and don’t face restrictions on how I utilise the grant This is a really big deal considering these restrictions on funding are what I anticipated would be the biggest hurdle I would face” Farah is one of the few to receive the Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance grant in the field of ecology; most other awardees are molecular and cell biologists Ageist policies widen the gender gap None of this is to say that her work has been free of difficulties Indian jungles where she studied birds are both physically challenging to navigate as well as politically tough to work in While Farah was driving through Naxalite areas in Bastar the government vehicle behind her was blown up because of a landmine There were instances where being a woman prevented her from befriending forest staff in interior India “If I had sat and had coffee with those men they would have started saying that I have a loose character whereas male ecologists could easily sit with them and learn more things” But Farah’s biggest challenge is stability in academia She is doing groundbreaking research in her field today but believes she has no job prospects in India “I am over 35 years old and despite the fact that I am working on something new unique and important I won’t be able to find a job outside of this lab” 35years is the upper age limit for prospective candidates for assistant professor posts in India as preferred by academic institutions While the age restriction is counter-productive to everyone in general (students complete their PhD in ecology on an average at age 34) it is especially detrimental to women since this is also the time most women want to have children Thus ageist academic policies manifest themselves as sexist too Farah has written about this in much depth here These rigid academic policies affect women disproportionately and there are immense scope and necessity for change Farah is sure that unless these changes come about women will have no choice but to drop out “Who knows if even I will be around in two years” Read more from the Women in Science series here
