While Arnold has won one half of the 9 million Swedish krona (Rs 7.3 crore) award, the other half would be shared by George Smith of University of Missouri in the US and Gregory Winter of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Britain. Before Arnold, only four women -- Ada Yonath in 2009, Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin in Francis H Arnold George P Smith 1964, Irene Joliot-Curie in 1935 and Marie Curie in 1911 -- won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. "This year's Nobel Laureates in Chemistry have been inspired by the power of evolution and FIRST CJI FROM NORTHEAST Justice Gogoi sworn in Chief Justice of India New Delhi: Justice Ranjan Gogoi, who was sworn in as the 46th Chief Justice of India in Wednsday, is the ﬁrst person from the northeast to reach the top position of judiciary and will have a tenure of a little over 13 months before retiring on November 17, 2019. He succeeds Justice Dipak Misra who demitted office on October 2. Justice Gogoi had hit the headlines in January by holding a controversial press conference along with three other senior-most judges of the top court in which they virtually revolted against the then CJI over certain contentious issues. He later remarked at a public function that "independent judges and noisy journalists are democracy's ﬁrst line of defence". Continued on Page 15 Gregory P Winter used the same principles -- genetic change and selection -- to develop proteins that solve mankind's chemical problems," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement. The other half of this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry would be shared by Smith and Winter. In 1985, Smith developed an elegant method known as phage display, where a bacteriophage -- a virus that infects bacteria -- can be used to evolve new proteins. Winter used phage display for the directed evolution of antibodies, with the aim of producing new pharmaceuticals. The ﬁrst one based on this method, adalimumab, was approved in 2002 and is used for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and inﬂammatory bowel diseases. Since then, phage display has produced anti-bodies that can neutralise toxins, counteract autoimmune diseases and cure metastatic cancer. KCR blasts Cong for tying up with TDP n Cong mortgaging self-respect of Telangana to Amaravati OUR BUREAU Nizamabad: In a vitriolic attack on the Congress, TRS president and caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Wednesday charged the main opposition party in Telangana with forging alliance with Andhra Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who went down in the history as betrayer of Telangana. "This is nothing but mortgaging the selfrespect of people of Telangana to Amaravati," he said. Addressing the second of a largely-attended Praja Ashirvada Sabha at Giriraj College Grounds here to shore up the prospects of the TRS in the ensuing elections, he launched a broadside against the Congress for sailing with the Telugu Desam which the TRS chief branded as one which had done incalculable harm to Telangana. “The Congress leaders have already gone down on their knees before their high command at Delhi. Worse still, they are now in poll pact with TDP which is a clear indication that the Congress has colluded with Andhra leaders to inveigle the Telangana people.

He said Amaravati team has already entered the arena in inter- national boat racing by participating in the just-concluded F1H2O International Power Boat Race in Xiangyang, China on September 23, 2018. He said the Amaravati team stood fourth in the international competitions in China and hoped it would improve its position in the forthcoming championships. He said F1H2O was organised at very selective places in the world and now Amaravati will be added in the list next month when boat racing will be organised near Punnami Ghat in the Krishna river. Referring to previous boat racing in India, he said earlier, the F1H2O had held in 2004 at Mumbai but not at this level of arrangements.

The UN chief praised Modi, saying, "We are recognising a statesman who embodies true leadership." "In PM Narendra Modi, we have a leader who realises the issue of climate change and understands the beneﬁts of climate action. He knows the problems and also works to solve them," Guterres added. The Award was for Modi's extensive efforts to 'Beat Plastic Pollution'- including an ambitious pledge to eliminate all single-use plastic in the country by 2022, the UN Environment said. Modi was also recognised for his International Solar Alliance initiative, a global partnership that aims to scale up solar energy in 'solar-resource-rich countries' and reduce humanity's dependence on fossil fuels. Guterres also hailed India in his speech. "I thank India for setting an example and was pleased to present Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the Champions of the Earth Award," the UN chief said. While accepting the award, Modi said, "I accept this award on behalf of millions of Indians who protect the environment each and every day... From fisherfolk who only take what they need or tribal communities who think of forests as their family. We will never be able to tackle climate change without bringing climate into our culture. And this is why India is taking so much action for our climate."
