Recent reports indicate that radiation traces from this device have been discovered in sediment below the mountain.
Along with the provision of food, sustaining livelihoods, enhancing nutrition and the ability to cope with rapid changes in the environment and marketplaces are equally important to millions of small farmers.
Data science can help in many ways. In this article, we outline the beginnings of data science applications in Indian agriculture.
We cover various initiatives such as data collection, visualization and information dissemination and applications of algorithmic data analysis techniques for decision support. We describe one application under development that provides timely price information to farmers, traders and policy makers.

The firm procures an input commodity and processes it to produce an output commodity over a multi-period horizon. We show that the resulting optimal operational policy has the same price and horizon dependent threshold structure that characterizes the known optimal policy when markets are complete or financial distress costs are small.
We also theorize how certain contingencies, such as the presence of foreign institutional ownership and family management, moderate the relationship between family ownership and internationalization strategy. We test our predictions by using a proprietary, longitudinal panel dataset of leading family firms from India and find support for most of our theoretical predictions.
Internationalization has emerged as a dominant strategy for firms in a globally interconnected world. We observe that ownership structure and management have significant bearing on internationalization strategies of family firms, as family owners and managers are more averse to internationalization.
However, certain contingencies, such as the higher ownership of foreign institutions and presence of professional managers, help business families improve their understanding of international markets, reduce the fear of the unknown, and better appreciate the benefits of internationalization, thereby aiding greater internationalization of family firms.
Since banking is intrinsically an opaque activity, we hypothesize that an incoming CEO of a bank is more likely to manage earnings than a counterpart in a non- financial firm. To identify the hypothesized effects, we exploit exogenous variation generated by age-based CEO retirement policies in Indian public sector firms.
This decrease occurs due to increased provisions, though such provisions do not associate with increased non-performing assets subsequently.
In contrast to banks, we observe no earnings management coinciding with CEO turnover for other public sector firms. As evidence of motivation, we show that earnings management increases likelihood of directorship positions in other firms within two years of retirement.
Published Papers Batra, Rishtee Kumar. Wisdom from ancient texts and practitioners of alternative medicine seem to share the intuition that consuming spicy food may increase aggression.
However, this relationship has not been empirically tested. Across three studies, we find evidence for this proposition. Study 1 reveals that those who typically consume spicy food exhibit higher levels of trait aggression. Studies 2 and 3 reveal, respectively, that consumption of, and even mere exposure to spicy food, can semantically activate concepts related to aggression as well as lead to higher levels of perceived aggressive intent in others.A study of Child labour in India – Magnitude and challenges.
