By shunning political decency and courtesy,S Ishwar aur Sansaar, and two firms, For all the latest India News, For those who read His Dark Materials as children (and likely re-read it as adults),La Belle Sauvage is another chance to enter a world where a repressive church and state try to control diversity sexuality and knowledge But while Northern Lights (the first part of the original trilogy) began in a baroque Oxford in a parallel universe La Belle Sauvage is set in the countryside about a decade before the events in the previous trilogy Malcolm Polstead the protagonist (quite unlike Lyra) is the ideal boy: His parents run a pub in Oxford he loves his canoe – the La Belle Sauvage is curious about literature and science and is quite the handyman Malcom gradually gets involved with an anti-Church espionage unit through Dr Hannah Relf and with Lyra a baby that is the product of scandal and intrigue in the highest political circles The spectre of Dust — an elementary particle that disproves the idea of soul/spirit — haunts the book We learn more about characters from the original trilogy and exactly how Lyra came to be raised at Jordan college in Oxford her parents’ separation and the political rivalries that define her world the nature of the alethiometer — a truth-telling device that operates through Dust Figures like Farder Coram wise and decrepit in the original are seen in their prime as spies Pullman’s affinity for biblical metaphors makes itself felt through the second half of the book The La Belle Sauvage turns into Noah’s Ark and Malcolm and Alice (a working-class girl who turns a friend) try to get Lyra to safety through a flood of magical and mythical proportions The plot and pace ofLa Belle Sauvagepale in comparison to Northern Lights As a hero Malcolm is simply too white-bread although there are portends of the character going down dark complex paths in the future The book feels like a long setup to the sequel which one hopes will move a little faster go a little deeper There is also the fact that for those who haven’t read His Dark Materials much of the context of La Belle Sauvage will be difficult to decipher Simply put Pullman needed a better editor But what makes The Book of Dust worth reading especially for young people is that Pullman has lost none of his courage when it comes to dealing with sexuality and how politics and religion seek to control it In Pullman’s world personhood is divided in two — the human form and an animal (ever-changing for children and fixed post-puberty) People’s “daemons” represent their sentience and sexuality which are in some ways for all of us inextricably linked The villain in La Belle Sauvage for example is a manipulator and abuser of children He hates his hyena-daemon and abuses and beats her mercilessly With remarkable subtlety and skill Pullman manages to convey the nervous excitement of receiving sexual attention from a practised predator especially when one is ignorant of the ways of such people and the wave of queasiness that comes when we realise what happened what was at stake He explores the cruelty of children the wilderness that is adolescence without knowledge safety and friendship and does so with honesty Two-thirds through the book in a moment of anger and vulnerability Alice uses a barrage of f-words It displays her weakness her rage and Pullman has the sense to know that his young readers need not be shielded from that That in the correct context teenage readers can make sense of most things Pullman has matured in his understanding of religion since His Dark Materials as well He has moved from a Richard Dawkins-like dismissal of religion to a more nuanced take While the church-state is still the villain a priory run by kind accepting nuns also finds pride of place in La Belle Sauvage Pullman shows how religion is a refuge for those defeated by life that piety need not make one conservative and controlling Despite being less tightly paced La Belle Sauvage could well find greater resonance than its predecessors Religion is back with a bang in politics as is a right-wing that is keen to tell its people what kind of citizens they should be Reading Pullman can teach children and adults alike that identities we are born into — nationality religion gender — are just that and not something that needs to be proved For

US government is deepening its effort to entice drug companies back into antibiotic research with a new public-private partnership The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA)announced yesterday that it will invest up to $170 million to help pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca move new antibiotic drug candidates toward the market AstraZeneca has long been an exception to the trend of waning corporate interest in antibiotic research Discouraged by the scientific challenges of finding novel antibiotic compounds—and by the difficulty of turning a profit in a field dominated by low-cost generics—many companies have fled the field since the early 2000s AstraZeneca’s announcement this February that it would spin out its early-stage research into a separate company was interpreted by industry analysts as a signal that it too was stepping out of the field But under the new agreement AstraZeneca will receive an initial $50 million to focus first on a combination drug it has been developing for hard-to-treat gram-negative infections BARDA then plans to invest up to $120 million more over the next 5 years as it advises the company on other drug candidates to pursue As public health experts have sounded the alarm over the threat of increasingly drug-resistant bacteria BARDA has become a key federal funding mechanism for clinical-stage antibiotic projects through its Broad Spectrum Antimicrobials (BSA) program launched in 2010 But until recently that assistance came in the form of $50 million to $85 million grants to help smaller companies stay afloat through expensive late-stage clinical trials for single drug candidates Broad funding for a company’s entire drug pipeline is a relatively newer part of BARDA’s strategy In 2013 the agency made a $200 million agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to fund an entire portfolio of projects some still in preclinical stages “It’s all about spreading risk over a number of different molecules versus focusing on one and then if it crashes and burns your contract has crashed and burned and you have to start over” BSA head Joseph Larsen told ScienceInsider at a briefing to the President’s Council of
