Scientists discover a simple way to cook rice that could halve the calories. Rice is a mainstay of dozens of different cuisines around the world, and pretty much the fuel that keeps uni students alive (alongside instant noodles). But although the versatile grain is cheap and easy to cook, there's one big issue with it - it's not that great for you. In fact, one cup of cooked rice contains around 240 starchy calories that can be quickly converted into fat if they're not burnt off.

' Townes was a member of the technical staff of the Bell Telephone Laboratories from 1939 to 1947.
He worked extensively during World War II on the design of radar bombing systems. Having joined the faculty at Columbia University as Associate Professor of Physics in 1948, Townes was appointed Professor in 1950. 'He was provost and institute professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology [MIT] from 1961 to 1965 and university professor at the University of California [at Berkeley] from 1967 to the present.

Townes sees more parallels than disparities By Alvin Powell Harvard News Office Nobel laureate and laser inventor Charles H.
Townes told a packed Science Center lecture hall Monday (June 13) that science and religion are parallel, rather than antagonistic, disciplines and that he sees them ultimately coming together. "I look at science and religion as quite parallel, much more similar than most people think and that in the long run, they must converge," Townes said in his 40-minute talk. Townes' speech, "Logic and Mystery in Science and Religion," coincided with a weeklong conference at Harvard on recent advances by a new astronomical facility, the Submillimeter Array on the slopes of Hawaii's highest volcano, Mauna Kea. Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) Director Charles Alcock said that Townes was in Cambridge to deliver technical talks for the conference and was asked to address the more general topic in a public lecture. firstname.lastname@example.org.
