Geminid Meteorites to shower SL skies tonight - Daily Mirror - Sri Lanka Latest Breaking News and Headlines

Geminid Meteorites to shower SL skies tonight - Daily Mirror - Sri Lanka Latest Breaking News and Headlines: A meteoric shower can be seen from tonight until next Sunday, the Director of the Astronomy and Space Science Unit of the Department of Physics of the Colombo University said.

Prof. Jayaratne said this was an annual occurrence known as the Geminids Meteor Shower will be best seen this year from Sri Lanka. Every year this meteoric shower occurs on the same dates between December 4 and17 December reaching the peek on December 13 or 14.

“However, this year because of the absence of moonlight till early morning one could see more meteorites. If the sky is clear and dark with no city light pollution you might be able to see about 120 meteories per hour. That is about one or two meteorites a minute,” he said. "To observe these meteorites, one must look east after 9 p.m. today, overhead at midnight and towards the west before sunrise on December 14. The best time to look is during the dark hours before sunrise on December 14 from about 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. because that is when the shower’s radiant point is highest in the sky and the peak activity occurs."

Buddhism only for Males ?

The Island: The Foundation’s president, Ven. Maharagama Uppalawanna Bhikshuni, has brought to the attention of the President and the Buddha Sasana Minister the impediments she faced in attending a conference on ‘Women and Buddhism’ in New Delhi as she was not recognized as a nun by the department, and hence, did not have identification as a Bhikkhuni."I was invited to represent Sri Lanka at this international parley held in a university in India, but my participation in this important confab was challenged due to non recognition as a Bhikkhuni", she complained.

Due to the Department of Buddhist Affairs not registering Bhikkhunis to be entitled to an official identity card for the Buddhist clergy, the Department of Immigration and Emigration took up the position that a passport can be issued only in her lay name, as appearing on the birth certificate, she said.

V V S Luxman talks about Sri Lanka Cricket

The Island: As Mohammad Azharuddin was nearing the twilight of his career, Hyderabad that produced one of India’s finest captains gifted another wristy player in the form of V.V.S. Laxman. Both Laxman’s parents were well-known doctors and even he studied medicine before choosing a career as a cricketer.

It was his back to the wall 281 in Calcutta in 2001 that put an end to Steve Waugh’s dreams of conquering the ‘final frontier’. It’s considered the greatest knock by an Indian batsman in Test cricket. While most batsmen struggle in Australian conditions, Laxman scored four centuries in Australia with Sydney being his favourite ground.

‘Sunday Island’ caught up with the elegant right-handed batsman during the ongoing cricket series and in this candid interview, Laxman elaborates on his battles against the Aussies, his pre-batting routines like taking excessive showers and going to sleep, his friendship with Muttiah Muralitharan and lots more.

Lankan Tamils are Victims Global Tamil Aspirations (To create a Homeland)

The Island: A. In the post-independence period the Tamil people had some genuine concerns and grievances with matters like the language policy. However even during this half century of isolation, Tamil continued to be the language of administration in the north and east. I question the wisdom of having Tamil as the language of administration in the north and east and Sinhala as the language of administration in the rest of the country. Until around 1950 no one was talking about a Tamil homeland. C.Suntharalingam may have been an early proponent of this idea of a homeland but no one took him seriously. When the Tamil people elected Tamil nationalist political parties, they ended up being outside the government and the Tamils isolated themselves. After 2009, no one will deny that there was a lot of development work done in the north and east. I would go to the extent of saying that such a development thrust reaching into all corners of the northern and eastern provinces had not been seen before in the post- independence period. However the north and east has had a separatist tendency for decades so things cannot change in a few years. My concern is also that things may have regressed in the past year or so.
