more metabolically active the brain is the more blood it requires (Source: Thinkstock images) Top News Your intelligence is not related to your brain size; rather it is linked more closely to the supply of blood to your brain A University of Adelaide-led project which has overturned the theory of the evolution of human intelligence showed that the human brain evolved to become not only larger but more energetically costly and blood thirsty than previously believed The research team calculated how blood flowing to the brain of human ancestors changed over time using the size of two holes at the base of the skull that allow arteries to pass to the brain The findings allowed the researchers to track the increase in human intelligence across evolutionary time “Brain size has increased about 350 per cent over human evolution but we found that blood flow to the brain increased an amazing 600 per cent” said project leader Emeritus Roger Seymour from the University of Adelaide “We believe this is possibly related to the brain’s need to satisfy increasingly energetic connections between nerve cells that allowed the evolution of complex thinking and learning To allow our brain to be so intelligent it must be constantly fed oxygen and nutrients from the blood” Seymour continued “The more metabolically active the brain is the more blood it requires so the supply arteries are larger The holes in fossil skulls are accurate gauges of arterial size” he added The study was a new collaboration between the Cardiovascular Physiology team in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Adelaide and the Brain Function Research Group and Evolutionary Studies Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand Co-author Edward Snelling University of the Witwatersrand said “Ancient fossil skulls from Africa reveal holes where the arteries supplying the brain passed through The size of these holes shows how blood flow increased from three-million-year-old Australopithecus to modern humans The intensity of brain activity was before now believed to have been taken to the grave with our ancestors”

grow out of childhood It is also connected to family cooperation in hunting defending territory and looking after our young” Bosiocic said “The emergence of these traits seems to nicely follow the

clarifications and additional clarifications issued by Prime Minister Narendra Modi the finance ministry Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and finance minister Arun Jaitley so far on depositing old

thought it seems is going into even critical communications from the RBI and finance ministry on demonetisation-related issues Lack of co-ordination between different authorities is more than obvious “There seems to be a lack of disconnect among authorities on what they are doing” said Devendra Pant chief economist at India Ratings and Research “This is creating confusions among public and bankers” Pant said On Monday both the RBI and finance ministry in separate circulars said that in the remaining days of this month (till 30 December) only once people can deposit old Rs 500 Rs 1000 notes above Rs 5000 in value that too explaining why they didn’t do it so far “The credit in such cases shall be afforded only after questioning tenderer on record in the presence of at least two officials of the bank as to why this could not be deposited earlier and receiving a satisfactory explanation The explanation should be kept on record to facilitate an audit trail at a later stage An appropriate flag also should be raised in CBS to that effect so that no more tenders are allowed” the RBI said The ministry circular too sounded similar “The banks have been advised to conduct due diligence regarding the reasons for not depositing these notes earlier” But later on Monday night Jaitley again clarified rather contradicted the above two circulars earlier in the day saying no questions will be asked for the one-time deposit above Rs 5000 Remember all these flip-flops are coming after PM Modi and FM Jaitley repeatedly assuring the citizens that there is no need to rush to bank counters to deposit old notes in the early days of demonetisation What does one understand from the endlessly changing rules One there isn’t proper coordination between the responsible authorities on how to go about the demonetisation implementation Second decisions are being made on the go rather than coming as the outcome of an original plan Third both the government and RBI seem to be unaware about the ground situation and the practical difficulties faced by the bankers and common customers Bankers and economists have pointed out that the new Rs 5000 deposit rule will be difficult to implement This is because branches will find it difficult to depute two officers for each deposit and handle the additional paper work All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) on Tuesday threatened further protests highlighting the problems faced by the bankers and customers during the demonetisation episode For instance a banker who has received the RBI circular but missed the late night clarification from finance minister Arun Jaitely is bound to question the customer at the counter who has above Rs 5000 in old currencies The condition of a ‘satisfactory explanation’ to why the customer didn’t deposit the money so far is a very subjective matter which can open channels for harassment corruption and further chaos at bank branches Given that transparency and clarity of communications is paramount while rolling out a mammoth exercise such as demonetisation of 86 percent currency in circulation in one go the government RBI should have coordinated in a much better way to give clarity to the citizens on the rules The government’s intention of putting fresh curbs on deposits is clear— it wants to cut off fresh inflow of black money into banking system in the remaining days of this month But it is not clear how far the move will see results given that crooks This is because as this writer pointed out in an earlier Firstpost column the tax cheats would have found many ways to deposit their money much earlier in small doses either by creating fake accounts (like in the Axis Bank episode) donating to one of the 1866 political parties that enjoy no tax no scrutiny under the current laws by splitting the amount to several small bundles or depositing it multiple benami accounts Probably the government failed miserably to foresee how crooks will find alternative ways to beat demonetisation from the very beginning With just 10 days left to the 30 December deadline offered by PM Narendra Modi to put an end to the demonetisation pain of common man PM Modi’s first big test is to keep his 50-days promise So far there are no signs of that happening Queues at ATMs and bank branches have shortened for sure but that is more because of the fact that there is not enough cash in lower denominations available rather than a sign of a normalisation Also due to the tough restrictions the government/RBI has imposed on withdrawals and deposits The Rs 5000 rule adds to the confusions The government mint’s capacity to print enough lower denomination notes so soon is doubtful as this IndiaSpend analysis points out The PM’s second test will be to resolve the cash-crunch at the earliest Even his political rivals would be praying for the current mess to end fast since the cash-crunch has impacted majority of Indians in some or other way The economic impact some of which are already visible will be profound if the cash-crunch lasts longer An economic crisis can negate any promise Finally Modi’s third test will be to show the stated tangible results of the demonetisation exercise—elimination of black money corruption and terror funding Change to a cashless economy is a far-fetched idea for India so one can forget discussing it at this point A cost benefit analysis of this entire demonetisation exercise will be done sooner or later and the pain of demonetisation will be weighed against the supposed gains There aren’t any leaders as Modi who has risked his entire political capital to push an economic reform agenda in this fashion either willingly or without understanding it fully Either Modi will emerge as a hero of demonetisation or the currency ban will go down in history as his Waterloo Modi’s first big test is to keep his 50-day promise Washington: The US House of Representatives has passed a $6215 billion defence policy bill that proposes to advance defence cooperation with India An amendment in this regard moved by Indian-American Congressman Ami Bera was adopted by a voice vote by the House as part of the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) 2018 beginning 1 October 2017 NDAA-2018 was passed by the House 344-81 The India-related amendment passed by the House requires the Secretary of Defence in consultation with the Secretary of State to develop a strategy for advancing defence cooperation between the United States and India "The United States is the world’s oldest democracy and India is the world’s largest democracy It is vitally important to develop a strategy that advances defence cooperation between our two nations" Bera said "I am grateful this amendment passed and look forward to the Defence Department’s strategy that addresses critical issues like common security challenges the role of partners and allies and areas for collaboration in science and technology" he said Representational image Image courtesy: News18 "Cooperation between the US and India enhances our own defence and our ability to meet the evolving security challenges of the 21st century" Bera said Following the passage of the National Defence Authorisation Act the Secretary of Defence and Secretary of State have 180 days to develop a strategy for advancing defence cooperation between the United States and India NDAA needs to be passed by the Senate before it can be sent to the White House for the US President Donald Trump to sign into law As passed by the House NDAA-2018 asks the

technology and trade initiative It also asks them to address how to advance the communications interoperability and security memorandum of agreement and the basic exchange and cooperation agreement for geospatial cooperation The previous NDAA-2017 had designated India as a major defence partner which brings India at par with closest American partners in terms of defence trade and technology transfer Meanwhile a senior defence official on Fridaysaid that India and US defence relationship is on positive track "… [As] we look at the global order and when we look at the evolving security environment within Asia India’s rise and role [is] evolving [and] we see the United States and India increasingly viewing the region in the same way and our interests are very much aligned" said Cara Abercrombie Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence for South and Southeast Asia Addressing a New York audience she said the relationship creates a high level of dialogue in the Pentagon on a range of issues "This is all rooted in when we look at the region and [what] we share We have the same [aerial] security interests the same counter-proliferation counter-piracy and counter-terrorism [interests]" she added "We have the same interests in upholding this international system that upholds the rule of law that favours freedom of navigation open sea lanes of communication and freedom of over flight" Those are values that are critically important to the United States and India to our economic prosperity and to our access in the region" Abercrombie said during a panel discussion at the 2017 Global Business Forum in New York City BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Monday that regional cooperation should neither be politicised nor exclusionary responding to US President Donald Trump’s use of the term “Indo-Pacific” during his trip to Asia “Indo-Pacific” has grown in usage across diplomatic and security circles in Australia India and Japan in recent years shorthand for a broader and democratic-led region in place of the “Asia-Pacific” which to some places an authoritarian China too firmly at the centre Trump and his team have given it fresh currency in recent days starting during stops in Tokyo and Seoul building on the rhetoric of his secretary of state Rex Tillerson who last month talked of the need to support a “free open and thriving Indo-Pacific” Although Trump was addressing a meeting alongside the APEC summit of Asia-Pacific leaders in the Vietnamese city of Danang on Friday he repeatedly referred to the Indo-Pacific region and mentioned the importance of India in his speech Asked about China’s view of the Indo-Pacific concept Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said that peaceful development and win-win cooperation were the trends of the times “All sides can come up with their own plans and positions on how to promote regional cooperation” Geng told a daily news briefing in Beijing “But we hope that plans and positions can accord with and conform to this trend can suit the general trend of events in the world and that the relevant plans and positions are open and inclusive benefiting the promotion of win-win cooperation by all sides and avoid politicised or exclusionary arrangements” China has been busy promoting President Xi Jinping’s Belt and Road initiative an extensive infrastructure plan to recreate the ancient Silk Road linking Asia with the Middle East and Europe which critics say is more about spreading Chinese influence China says it is simply a development project for common prosperity that any country is

hyper visible when it comes to criminal law yet completely invisible when it comes to the benefits accruing from family law Related News Supreme Court has created a nuanced framework for legal recognition of transgenders Speaking of the persecution of transgender individuals in India the Supreme Court observes that the “moral failure lies in society’s unwillingness to contain or embrace different gender identities and expressions” With this opening acknowledgment the court proceeds to craft a charter of transgender rights in its recent judgment in National Legal Services Authority (Nalsa) vs Union of India I’ll elaborate on one strand of the decision in particular — the legal recognition of transgender identity At the outset the judges clarify that they are talking of two kinds of identity claims: one where transgenders may be treated as a third gender and two where they may decide their gender within the male/ female binary regardless of their biological sex There are two major ways in which non-recognition happens First when a transgender individual is refused recognition in the gender of their choice This is largely a question of burdensome procedure: how many medical psychiatric and administrative hoops should a person have to jump through in order to be accurately recognised as a legal citizen The court goes through a lengthy recounting of comparative law relating to the recognition of transgender identity starting from the infamous Corbett vs Corbett with its complete emphasis on biological sex to the New Zealand case law standard requiring surgical and medical procedures to effect a transformation The court rejects the idea that gender should be based on biology holding that the test to be applied is a psychological one The second recognition issue appears wherever the notion of third gender is absent in the law which it is at just about every level that matters The law places third gendered communities in a unique double bind Criminal law is largely gender neutral mostly using the word “persons” to indicate perpetrators of crimes Personal laws on the other hand are chiefly gendered so that various state benefits or legal statuses such as marriage adoption guardianship and succession will take the male-female binary into account The third gender is thus hyper visible when it comes to criminal law yet completely invisible when it comes to the benefits accruing from family law With Nalsa the Supreme Court has maintained that these cumulative silences on the law’s part are unconstitutional In articulating this as an equality claim the court first put forward an Aristotelian logic: the “treatment of equals as unequals or unequals as equals will be violative of the basic structure of the Constitution” But then it goes on to firmly reinforce that the equal protection guarantee under Article 14 of the Constitution involves a “positive obligation on the state… by bringing in necessary social and economic changes so that everyone including transgenders may enjoy equal protection of laws” While the court stops short of declaring that the inequality of non-recognition is by itself a harm what it does do is provide all the instances in which non-recognition leaves transgender persons vulnerable These include harassment and violence in both public spaces and the home as well as institutional discrimination whether at the workplace or in the educational sphere These proclamations largely adhere to non-recognition in the second sense What of the first that is where individuals want to transition from one genderto another The court’s sharpest move here lies in an implicit recognition of its institutional limitations to craft actual policy decisions for the transgender community Thus instead of trying to mandate its own recommendations for operationalising legal recognition the court defers to an executive body In 2013 the ministry of social justice and empowerment constituted an expert committee to provide an in-depth study of the problems faced by the transgender community and suggest governmental measures The committee report provides a voluminous set of recommendations for addressing transgender discrimination at various levels The court holds that the recommendations in the report are to be examined in light of the legal declarations it has made and implemented within six months Again this is a master stroke because the report for the most part excels in crafting a nuanced set of recommendations When it comes to legal recognition it takes a position that grants the maximum autonomy to transgender individuals: so a person has the option to identify as “man” “woman” or “transgender” a choice which can be made independent of surgery or taking hormones This combines the best components of different jurisdictions: Argentina allows for self-identification without medical intervention but not a third gender; Pakistan and Nepal recognise a third gender but don’t have clear procedures for gender transition The report is also sensitive to the pernicious practice of limited recognition of transgenders as “others”: this it says cannot be allowed Finally it ensures that the gender certification bodies that are to be set up by different states include members of the transgender community With the judgment as a guiding tool filled in by the substance of the report we finally have a meaningful right to transgender recognition under law The writer is a humanrights advocate with the Alternative Law Forum Bangalore?

coalition partnersthe Liberal Democratsand with the reform that may challenge the primacy of the House of Commons who could have joined the Labour Party to defeat the government motionthe time-tabling motion has been withdrawn until autumn The reformation of the House of Lords has been on the agenda for a century now In 1911at the end of an epic battle between the House of Commons and the House of Lordsthe Lower House won and passed the first Parliament Act It took away the power of the House of Lords over issues of taxationbudgets and anything involving money It also removed the power of the Upper House to reject bills passed by the Lower House more than twice (In 1949this was reduced to once) The act also promised in its preamble that this was just a stop-gap measure and a thorough reform of the House of Lords to make it reflect the peoples will would passed soon That promise has not been fulfilled The House of Commons has changed It has been based on universal adult franchise since 1928and has women and ethnic minorities as its members The House of Lords has changed even morebut it is still unelected In 1911there were only hereditary peers passing on their seat to the eldest male heir In 1958women were allowed to sit and life peers were introduced But the desire for reform flickered on As the House of Lords improved in its quality of debatethe reform movementparadoxicallyhad a setback In 1968Harold Wilson tried to remove the rights of hereditary peers to vote In the House of Commonsthere were those on the leftled by the Labour Partys Michael

on until a proper reform that would lead to an elected House of Lordsaround a hundred hereditary peers would be kept back The Blair reform package also ensured that no party would have a majority in the House of Lords In the Housethere are the three major parties the ConservativeLabour and the Liberal Democrats plus cross-benchers who belong to no party There are around 850 members roughly 300 each of Labour and Conservative100 Lib Dems and 150 cross-benchers There are also 26 bishops of the Church of England About five years agothe House of Commons surprised itself when it voted overwhelmingly to have 80 per cent or 100 per cent elected members in the House of Lords So in 2010all the parties made a commitment in their manifestos to have an elected House of Lordsbut each still had a lot of caveats The House of Lords is overwhelmingly against its reform (I belong to a minority in favour of reform) The House of Commons is now different from its previous self after the
