more in a special issue from Science About 425 years ago Galileo Galilei supposedly dropped pairs of balls of different sizes and materials from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to show that all objects accelerate at the same rate under gravity’s pull Now physicists are performing various versions of this classic experiment (which Galileo probably never performed) to test a basic premise of Einstein’s theory of gravity or general relativity called the equivalence principle In April 2016 a French satellite will blast off to see whether two free-floating cylinders of different materials orbit Earth at exactly the same altitude Another team of physicists aims to reproduce Galileo’s freefall experiment with two different types of atoms Such work compares an object’s inertial mass which determines how much it resists moving when subjected to a force and its gravitational mass which determines how strongly gravity pulls on the thing That equivalence explains Galileo’s experiment According to general relativity it must hold exactly If it doesn’t general relativity cannot be the ultimate theory of gravityIslamabad: The Trump administration has suspended more than a decade-long military training programme of Pakistani personnel at the US institutions a media report said on Saturday days after Islamabad and Moscow signed an agreement to allow Pakistani troops to receive training at the Russian defence centres Pakistan and Russia signed an agreement on Tuesady at their first Joint Military Consultative Committee (JMCC) meeting in Rawalpindi during which the two sides discussed the present status of the bilateral defence relations and agreed that Pakistani troops will receive training at the Russian military training institutes File image of US president Donald Trump AP The relations between Pakistan and the US nosedived this January after President Donald Trump accused Islamabad of giving nothing to Washington but "lies and deceit" and providing "safe haven" to terrorists The US Congress also passed a bill to slash Pakistan’s defence aid to $150 million significantly below the historic level of more than $1billion per year The US military institutions are struggling to fill the 66 slots they had kept aside for officers from Pakistan for the next academic year as the Trump administration refused to provide funds for their training the Dawn newspaper reported quoting official sources The fund for the training of Pakistani officers came from the US government’s International Military Education and Training Programme (IMET) but no funds were made available for Pakistan for the next academic year it said The suspension of the training first became apparent when the US National Defence University (NDU) in Washington which has had reserved seats for Pakistani officers for more than a decade told the outgoing Pakistani officers that the varsity has been asked to fill the positions for the next year with officers from other nations The NDU is one of several US military institutions that train officers from Pakistan The Trump administration had announced early this year that it was suspending security assistance to Pakistan over differences on Afghanistan but indicated that training programmes for military officers will continue The cancellation of slots kept aside for Pakistani officers however shows that the suspension now also applies to training programmes the report said Pakistani officers have been receiving military training and education in the US since early 1960s which were suspended in the 1990s but restored after the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks Previously it was not just Pakistan that valued the training and education of its officers received in the US US military institutions also proudly owned training officers who assumed senior positions after returning home such as former Army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar the current director general of the Inter-Services Intelligence the report said "This is an unfortunate and ultimately counterproductive decision There are certainly ways to send a strong message to Pakistan but this isn’t the way to do it" Michael Kugelman an expert of Pakistan affairs at the Washington think tank ‘the Wilson Center’ was quoted as saying in the report "This move could squander what little goodwill and trust remains in the military-to-military relationship and it reduces the likelihood that Pakistan will act in the ways that Washington would like it to act" Kugelman said He said there was a long history of educational and training cooperation between the US and Pakistani militaries and this cooperation had withstood the pressures and tensions of the relationship "The fact that these educational exchanges have suffered this blow now suggests that the relationship could be entering into a new phase where even the supposedly safe and protected dimensions of the relationship can become casualties of wider tensions and ill will" Kugelman said So far there is no response from Pakistani official to this move by the US Pakistan’s defence ties with Russia have moved past the bitter Cold War hostilities in recent years and the chill in the relations between Pakistan and the US has further pushed the country towards Russia and China Pakistan has shown eagerness to build military-to-military level ties with Russia Earlier this year the then foreign minister Khawaja Asif visited Moscow during which the two sides agreed to set up a commission to boost military cooperation Russia has over the past three years provided four Mi-35M combat and cargo helicopters to Pakistan and the militaries of the two countries also held joint drills codenamed ‘Friendship’

New York Post Featured Image Credit: Tahsyi Kyng/Facebook Topics: News Us news Animals AmericaThe southern and middle belt leader’s forum has warned the presidency against declaring state of emergency in Benue State.SAN FRANCISCO SCHNEIDER ET AL. GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS 44 12396 (2017) ADAPTED BY N DESAI/SCIENCE Crucial input to the new model will come from simulations that have recently painted a much sharper picture of the low clouds and how they behave Called large eddy simulations (LESs) those models trade the global scale and centuries-long time horizons of a climate model for narrow scope and high resolution The models re-create several days in the life of small parcels of the atmosphere with cells only 10 meters on a side At such resolutions key aspects of cloud formation—such as the convection that lofts sun-heated air upward until the water vapor it carries condenses into clouds—arise directly from physical laws The results sometimes closely resemble reality says Chris Bretherton a leading cloud scientist at the University of Washington in Seattle Several years back Bretherton led a project that used LESs to study how a 2°C temperature rise affected low ocean clouds Two feedbacks emerged both of which would exacerbate warming First higher temperatures appeared to allow more dry air to penetrate thin clouds from above preventing them from thickening and reflecting more of the sun’s energy Second increased carbon dioxide (CO2) levels trap heat near the clouds’ tops preventing their cooling Because such cooling drives the turbulence that forms clouds the effect could impede cloud formation fueling further warming If CO2 emissions continue unabated Bretherton says "It’s possible that most of our low clouds in the tropics would melt away" Other evidence including actual cloud observations also suggests "that the low-cloud feedback is positive and that low clouds will amplify climate warming" says Stephen Klein an atmospheric scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California Those breakthroughs have not yet made their way into global models because no bridge or technical way to get them there has emerged But Schneider’s team is building one: an LES that can simulate cloud behavior over days within a domain of up to 100 kilometers on a side—about the size of one cell in a climate model Their LES is based on a Caltech-developed model called the Python Cloud Large Eddy Simulation (PyCLES) that focuses on low clouds "These simulations may not be perfect" Schneider says "but they’re much much better than anything else we have" If all goes according to plan Giraldo’s code will run 1000 PyCLES-type models on the fly as individual cells inside the Earth Machine The machine will also use AI to study the observed and simulated clouds extrapolating what it learns to improve the rules of thumb it uses to simulate clouds across the globe Soon virtual cloud decks will sprout off the California coast Incorporating AI into climate modeling is a work in progress Several researchers including Bretherton’s group and Michael Pritchard a climate modeler at the University of California Irvine trained one form of AI neural networks on high-resolution simulations of the atmosphere They then used the AI to replace several classic rules of thumb such as how quickly the temperature and humidity change in rising air "All of these are in the feeling-around type of phase" Bretherton says Key uncertainties Although climate models provide a fairly faithful rendering of the world computational limits lead to persistent errors that have proved difficult to fix Low stratocumulus clouds are a big problem Some others include: STORMS A band of thunderstorms encircles the globe near the equator shifting north or south depending on the season Models have struggled to represent the intertropical convergence zone as it’s known often producing two bands one on each side of the equator ICE Current models vary widely in their Arctic temperatures compared with reality leading to large differences in their simulated sea ice extent RAIN Models tend to simulate more light rain than seen in reality and underestimate the frequency of severe downpours and floods But neural networks and climate are an uneasy fit The algorithms do best on problems such as classification—for example learning from millions of labeled photos what a dog looks like The code builds up an intricate model for what an object looks like that is often wholly inexplicable to human reasoning The approach works for dogs—but may break down when it encounters something outside its training data—say a camel And for climate change the future is a camel For that reason Stuart and Schneider are not banking on neural networks to guide the Earth Machine’s AI Instead they seek a compromise something between traditional rules of thumb and pure AI They hope to develop code that can use hard-won knowledge of clouds and then fill in gaps with its learned intuition essentially replacing the manual tuning typically done by modelers with a machine That learning won’t be driven by individual cloud systems which are imprinted with the atmospheric chaos that begat them Rather the AI will learn from seasonal or annual statistics on cloud coverage and other factors wiping out the noise of weather As Stuart and Schneider move each rule of thumb over to the AI’s hands they’ll wire the model to calculate probabilities allowing an overall reckoning of uncertainty not yet seen in current climate models And partly at the prompting of their engineering-minded funders they’ll develop metrics to gauge how accurately the model renders the world They’re betting on recent insights that for some aspects of the climate system short-term accuracy in a model indicates decades-long viability Success is far from guaranteed the team agreed after the May workshop "It could be that what we do ends up not improving the numbers just to be completely scientifically honest" Stuart said But even so he added the approach should spark new ideas across climate modeling "I’d say that’s the worst-case scenario" Schneider quickly interjected "This is why I say we can’t fail entirely But I do hope we will do more than that" As Schneider assembled his team and developed a general plan he still faced a big question: Who would support their dream That the US government would finance yet another climate model seemed unlikely Even before President Donald Trump’s White House proposed cuts in climate science former President Barack Obama’s administration had explored whether the country needed to support so many models Fortunately for the Caltech team the tech philanthropists—particularly Allen who has already invested heavily in oceanography—were looking for something to make a splash They sought a risky investment with a big potential payoff that could make climate forecasting more concrete Schneider already had preliminary support for the Earth Machine from Charles Trimble a Caltech alumnus who miniaturized the GPS receiver and the Heising-Simons Foundation in Los Altos California But to reach their full ambitions they needed more some $5 million annually—a goal that now seems in sight though the exact financing was still being finalized at press time The mix of ambition metrics and innovation embodied in the Earth Machine was exactly the type of work that Allen wants to fund says Chris Emura a Seattle Washington-based computer engineer leading Allen’s engagement with Schneider Over the past year Allen’s team has been enmeshed in the modeling world visiting leading centers to gauge what they can and can’t do Schneider’s project Emura says has some audacity to it with a high degree of "responsible risk" The team also has garnered interest from the Windward Fund a conservation charity in Washington DC," says Dr.
