completely black say researchers ( Image used for representation Source: Reuters) Related News Astronomers have discovered traces of a massive black hole lurking in the corner of our Milky Way galaxy by analysing an extraordinarily fast-moving cosmic cloud This marks the beginning of the search for quiet black holes researchers said Millions of such objects are expected to be floating in the Milky Way although only dozens have been found to date It is difficult to find black holes because they are completely black In some cases black holes cause effects which can be seen For example if a black hole has a companion star gas streaming into the black hole piles up around it and forms a disk The disk heats up due to the enormous gravitational pull by the black hole and emits intense radiation However if a black hole is floating alone in space no emissions would be observable coming from it Watch all our videos from Express Technology Researchers led by graduate student Masaya Yamada and Professor Tomoharu Oka from Keio University in Japan used the ASTE Telescope in Chile and the 45-m Radio Telescope at Nobeyama Radio Observatory to observe molecular clouds around the supernova remnant W44 located 10000 light-years away from us Their goal was to examine how much energy was transferred from the supernova explosion to the surrounding molecular gas but they happened to find signs of a hidden black hole at the edge of W44 Researchers found a compact molecular cloud with enigmatic motion This cloud named the Bullet has a speed of more than 100 kilometres per second which exceeds the speed of sound in interstellar space by more than two orders of magnitude In addition this cloud with the size of two light-years moves backward against the rotation of the Milky Way Galaxy To study the origin of the Bullet the team observed the gas cloud with ASTE and the Nobeyama 45-metre Radio Telescope The data indicate that the Bullet seems to jump out from the edge of the W44 supernova remnant with immense kinetic energy Also Read: Scientists create detailed map of the Milky Way “Its kinetic energy is a few tens of times larger than that injected by the W44 supernova It seems impossible to generate such an energetic cloud under ordinary environments” said Yamada The team proposed a dark and compact gravity source possibly a black hole has an important role With the present dataset it is difficult for the team to distinguish the size of the black hole Theoretical studies have predicted that 100 million to one billion black holes should exist in the Milky Way although only 60 or so have been identified through observations to date “We found a new way of discovering stray black holes” said Oka The team expects find more solid evidence for a black hole in the Bullet with higher resolution observations using a radio interferometer such as the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array (ALMA) in Chile For all the latest Technology News download Indian

training seem to turn them into generalists rather than specialists Related News An examination that attracts over 750000 aspirants and selects only 015 per cent is sure to be the most competitive in the world India’s civil services examination carefully selects the most fertile minds in order to turn them into ideal bureaucrats This is not to say that those who do not write the exam based on their choice are less bright However the Peter Principle — the rise to higher levels of incompetence — applies to many employees Thus lateral exit too is equally important Many young IAS officers often fall prey to the incompetency of the framework Once inducted postings and training seem to turn them into generalists rather than specialists The training does not appear to focus on domain expertise and the knowledge required by jobs in today’s context Even in the days of the ICS officers could select a branch of governance after a period of service such as the social sector or economics so that they could specialise and perform better That practice has since been abolished as many feel an IAS officer needs to be a generalist Moreover the assurance of a secure career offers little incentive to bureaucrats to outperform others when promotions and postings are hardly linked to merit and competence This is where complacency creeps in and leads potential performers into a slump Civil servants have always held notable positions in government and even outside as in inter-governmental organisations (IGOs) But some positions require specialists So why not bring in talented people from outside who may offer expertise as happens in IGOs To fill this gap the government established the Industrial Management Pool (IMP) in 1959 The IMP envisaged hiring talented private-sector executives to man high- and mid-level managerial posts Notable individuals like PL Tandon Lovraj Kumar and V Krishnamurthy joined But with “positions meant for them” at stake bureaucrats ensured the burial of the IMP After only one hiring in 1959 the IMP came to a formal end in 1973 There have been government commissions and reports advocating the lateral entry of specialists The Sixth Pay Commission and Second Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) were unanimous on lateral entry The ARC also recommended a paradigm shift from a career-based to a post-based approach to senior government jobs It said that civil servants should compete with domain experts from outside for specific jobs The ARC highlights that some good practices on performance appraisals may be adopted from the armed forces which could aid in weeding out non-performers In the armed forces only 3 per cent of officers make it to the grade of brigadier and above — and promotions are based entirely on merit which fuels excellence Australia Belgium New Zealand the UK the Netherlands and the US identify specific senior positions that are open to appointments from a wider pool of civil servants as well as private-sector executives with relevant domain experience Lateral entrants bring their own work culture and this enables renewal and adaptation in government organisations India is not new to lateral entry and the benefits are there for all to see The chief economic advisor to the Union government is traditionally a lateral entrant There are illustrious examples of lateral entrants in administrative positions such as Vijay Kelkar (finance and petroleum secretary) Montek Singh Ahluwalia (commerce and finance secretary) and Ram Vinay Shahi (ministry of power) In addition to domain knowledge they had managerial skills and could get results in a government system Lateral entrants may not only bring specialised expertise good practices and work culture but they could also induce competition within the system When civil servants are made to compete with outside talent the lethargic attitude will diminish So the prospects of lateral entry will always propel overall efficiency However the IAS lobby seems to think otherwise which was reflected in the Civil Service Survey conducted in 2010 Fifty-four per cent of officers (on a consolidated basis) were in favour of lateral entry at the higher levels However IAS officers were less amenable to the idea Only 43 per cent agreed Transparency and accountability are two important factors that should not be underplayed in hiring lateral entrants Discretion on lateral entry may pave the way to charges of being “politically motivated” which may degrade the system For this the ARC recommended the establishment of a central civil services authority to deal with issues concerning lateral entries But the body which would have ensured a robust and accountable system of lateral entry is yet to come into existence Civil servants should also be encouraged to move out and work for different sectors on a short-term basis to enrich their knowledge and enhance their motivation and efficiency Therefore lateral exit is as important as lateral entry This has the potential to raise the civil services from its slump The writer is secretary general of CUTS International Rohit Singh of CUTS contributed to this article
