A spoof on how government looks at sex education?could be an eye opener for few.Presenting five spoofs that went viral on the webin 2014 1 When Alia Bhatt the “genius” went viral for laughing at herself From being a butt of million jokes to one who can laugh at herself Alia Bhatt took a risk and got the respect from her fans in return AIB’s Alia Bhatt – Genius of the Year video was an instant success with 6937538 views so far In the video Alia joins a Dumb Belles gym for brain enlargement and dances her way to up her GK level only to heave a sigh of relief after she clears KJo’s rapid fire round Well done AIB Alia Bhatt on the video: “I thought it would be really cool So I did it” Shakun Batra who directed the video said “The AIB concept was so funny I just couldn’t resist getting into

pronunciation The video went viral with 2044517 so far So unhappy were some Delhi girls after watching the video that they did a parody called The Real Delhi Girl which garnered them 504678 views “We knew that every Delhi girl would be successful just because of the culturally iconic status that Delhi’s young ladies have in our country today She is young and beautiful and has the confidence of someone who knows that the world is at her feet and the sky is the limit The reason people like to laugh at a video like “Every Delhi Girl In the World” is the same reason we like to mock the Ambani’s wealth or male models for their good fortune of being born good looking enough to not have to be smart It is just mild jealousy” shares Karl Katgara Creative Director Culture Machine with Indian Express “The self obsessed rude shallow materialistic person who only listens to Yoyo Honey Singh and cannot pronounce most English words that have more than three syllables in them… Is a caricature Its a joke The rest of us laugh at her with a mild sour grapes attitude We choose to ignore the educated socially responsible career woman who represents Delhi We tease her because we like her” adds Katgara 3 When SRK admitted to buying awards and his addiction to doingcommercials We have seen SRK making jokes at himself his co-stars friends and random people at award functions But this one is classic From admitted to ‘buying awards’ to reviving friend-turned-foe-turned-friend Farah Khan’s career with Happy New Year all SRK jokes fail and fade in comparison to this video We definitely didn’t like a tearful SRK in one of Koffee with Karan episodes a funny SRK is better anyday That’s why we loved Chennai Express and not Ram Jaane TVF’s Barely Speaking with Arnub takes a dig at a

in the competition for EU money Ministry of Education Universities and Research ROME—Last month the Italian government angered many scientists by announcing a series of deep cuts in the budgets of state institutes as part of a broader austerity package ScienceInsider talked to Francesco Profumo who as minister of education universities and research in Italy’s ‘technocratic’ government will have to implement those cuts Profumo 59 is an engineer who was widely praised for the reforms he enacted as rector of the Polytechnic University of Turin one of Italy’s top universities between 2005 and 2011 Before accepting the appointment as minister he served as the president of the National Research Council for 3 months Questions and answers have been translated from Italian and edited for clarity and brevity Q: The budget cuts announced last month will hit 12 state-funded institutes hard and have caused a great deal of commotion Won’t they harm Italian science FP: First of all let’s stop calling them cuts I prefer to use the term "spending reviews" Since the announcement the first 30 million in austerity measures which would have affected national research institutes in 2012 has been canceled through an amendment in the Senate Also I have met with the heads of the targeted institutes and together we agreed to plan a concerted path to share the sacrifices among the various institutes In September we will meet again to start a process to decide where to intervene Our ministry needs to make a contribution for the country which is facing serious economic troubles I think the effects of this spending review for research are tolerable if you take into consideration that the ministry’s total research funds are 7 billion But we need to determine which research institutes can make the biggest contributions And we must reconsider the models of research management in our country and aim for greater efficiency I also want to allow our research bodies to be able to obtain more European funds I will never tire of repeating that for every euro Italy invests in the European research pot our country takes back only 60 cents What strikes me is that there isn’t more indignation about this This is money coming from taxpayers’ pockets after all Q: So you hope Italy can secure more EU money FP: Yes my biggest bet will be on Europe Horizon 2020 the new European research funding scheme will ultimately provide 80 billion Its scope is still under debate and we should use this period to train Italian researchers so that they will be able to compete when it starts in 2014 We contributed 15% to the cost of Framework Programme 7 the predecessor to Horizon 2020 but we received only 85% of the funding in return—in other words we lost about 500 million per year Those are worrisome data Our contribution to Horizon 2020 will be about 17 billion per year If we don’t increase our participation rate we risk losing between 800 million and 900 million per year The key to winning is not necessarily to submit more proposals but a substantial effort to improve the quality of Italian proposals Q: Italian governments often seem to see research as a financial burden rather than an investment Science and innovation have never been priorities Will that change FP: I believe that will change dramatically because of Europe It’s difficult to change the Italian attitude toward science from within But forces from outside will change the trend I am confident that Italy will once again play a leading role in Europe—including in the scientific area Let’s not forget that Italy is one of the founder countries of the EU Q: Italy’s private sector invests very little in research—between 04% and 05% of GDP compared to the European average of 12% What’s keeping them from contributing more FP: The culture really isn’t there in Italian industry No government has ever motivated them to invest in research—for instance by introducing tax breaks I’d like to do that but it’s an expensive proposition I hope the country will enter a phase of greater economic and political stability so that we can provide tax breaks At the same time researchers are not doing enough to publish their results and make them visible and understandable Communication has to improve in this respect Companies could also invest in the universities to help train the people that they might need in the future; that would save them money spent on training and development later on Q: Your reform of the Research Projects of National Interest (PRIN) the main source of public funding for research projects has come under fire Critics say the new rules favor big multiuniversity projects and hurt smaller groups working at the cutting edge How do you respond FP: That has to do with Europe as well Our position in Italy is getting weaker and weaker both in terms of research and funds Some of the newer members of the EU are quite competitive We must change gears Our excellent researchers often lack cohesion and they have difficulty transforming the qualities of single scientists into an organic project I believe that there is a need to create critical mass That’s what we hope to achieve with PRIN Scientists should change attitude and become more generous sharing ideas and projects especially during the grim times Italy is now facing Q: The national research evaluation agency is now working on its first reviews How will they be used FP: The agency will wrap up its first evaluation in June 2013 Italy has not adequately rewarded its best-performing research so far It is true that the system needs more money but that money must be linked to performance For the first time peer review evaluation and bibliometric indicators such as the h-index will be used Originality innovation and competitiveness will be also key parameters Q: You want to increase the number of courses taught in English at the master’s level Why FP: We face a historical moment where more than ever we deal with cultural confrontation I love diversity because I believe that it brings new stimuli energy and creativity Attracting foreigners can be a stimulus for our students and for professors too English is the common language that needs to be mastered in order to become part of the global community I am also collaborating closely with the Italian Ministry of the Interior to set up offices within universities to arrange residence permits and Social Security numbers for foreign students I dream about foreign students studying and growing professionally in our countryWritten by Shalini
