Vikas Sathaye Awarded the Sci-Tech Oscars 2018
Vikas Sathaye and his team won the Scientific and Engineering Academy Award, at the Oscars Scientific and Technical Awards 2018, for the concept, design, engineering and implementation of the SHOTOVER K1 camera system. It is a 6-axis stabilised aerial camera mount, that has an enhanced ability to frame shots while looking straight down. Sathaye says, “The camera mount attaches to the base of a helicopter, which carries the camera and lens. Its primary function is to eliminate vibration which affects steady footage. The secondary function of the mount is to move the camera head in the desired direction as required by the operator who sits inside the helicopter and uses a joystick to control the camera movement.” Vikas was born in Pune, 1967. He completed his diploma in instrumentation from VPM’s Polytechnic, Thane, and graduated with a BE in electronics from VIT Pune. Later, he completed his M Tech in instrumentation from IISc.
World’s Last Male Northern White Rhino Dies
Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhino, died at OI Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya on 19th of March. He was 45 years old (97 in human equivalent age). A team of veterinarians decided to euthanise him due to his agerelated problems and several infections. He is survived by two female rhinos: his daughter Najin, aged 28, and granddaughter Fatu, aged 17. White rhinos comprise of two subspecies: the northern white rhinos, which are nearly extinct and the southern white rhino. During the 1970s and 1980s, the poaching crisis largely destroyed the northern white rhinos in Uganda, Central African Republic, Sudan and Chad. The poaching crisis was the result of the growing demand for rhino horn in traditional Chinese medicine to cure various ailments and to use them as dagger handles in Yemen. The remaining wild population of last few rhinos were killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the beginning of 2000s, and by 2008, World Wide Fund, the global environment campaign considered the northern white rhinos extinct. To save the species from complete extinction, researchers have pinned their hopes on in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). They intend to use Sudan’s genetic material, and the eggs of the last female rhinos to preserve the subspecies. However, IVF has never been attempted with rhinos before. Better Photography magazine and Panasonic India conducted wildlife masterclasses for winners of Wildlife India Photography Awards, and twenty other participants from 25 June-1 July 2017, in Kenya. During this period, the winners and participants were able to meet Sudan in OI Pejeta Conservancy. A video was also shot featuring Sudan, which stressed on wildlife conservation. The film is title Sudan - Last Male Standing, and is available on Youtube. Having known the team that looked after Sudan so carefully, we offer our condolences from India. “We had the singular honour, to meet and touch the very last living male northern white rhinoceros on the planet. We are the very last generation to see this truly magnificent sub-species alive. We could not help feeling a sense of shame that humans killed them off with poaching, just as we do with so many other species. By being bystanders, our responsibility in all this does not diminish,” said Madhavan Pillai, Editor of Better Photography magazine.
SC Suggests To Revamp Crime Scene Photography
The Supreme Court of India has asked the government to consider the use of digital cameras with GPS and time stamp systems for crime scene photography on the recommendation of policemen. The court has requested the government to consider if states could create portals to upload images to note the time and reference number. Judges Adarsh Goel and U U Lalit, heard the submission of senior advocate and amicus curiae Arun Mohan, who suggested that the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) can issue a manual. Mohan recommended that the digital cameras were on sale in the market for Rs 8000 each but the final specifications could be laid down by the BPR&D. Furthermore, he suggested,“The BPR&D may also prepare crime scene photography manual in English and regional languages,” and money can be used from unutilised funds. The judges added that the government should think about using this technology in every district headquarters, and eventually move to rural areas.
