RIUI's 4th convocation
Islamabad: The educational institutions should take concrete steps to promote research-based knowledge among students to make the country strong and prosperous, said Senate Chairman Muhammadmian Soomro on Saturday.

Soomro was addressing the 4th convocation of Riphah International University Islamabad (RIUI) as the chief guest at Jinnah Convention Centre.

Advisor to Prime Minister on Science and Technology Dr Ashfaq Ahmad was also present on this occasion.

Soomro said the educational institutions should rise to the challenges and developments taking place around the globe by inculcating research culture into the students who were to play a role for the development of the country.

Dr Ahmad said Pakistan was facing economic and power shortage crises. "The scenario seems grim and discouraging but that is not the complete picture. Every dark cloud has a silver lining," he added. He said the hardworking nations took the challenges as opportunities and utilised them to win laurels.

RIUI Vice Chancellor Dr Anis Ahmad said their mission was promotion of Islamic values and seeking professional excellence. He said RIUI was running MBBS, MDS, MS and BS Electrical Engineering, MS and BS Software Engineering, BS Information Technology, Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Physical Therapy, MBA and many other post graduate and undergraduate degree programmes.

He said in 2008 the university provided Rs 28.36 million financial assistance to its students on the basis of merit and need.

In all 469 graduates of the university were awarded degrees at the convocation. Of them 196 got MBBS, 104 BDS, 10 MSc Pain Surgery, 69 MBA and 90 BS Electrical Engineering degrees. Twenty-one students got gold medals for their best performance and obtaining first position in examination. Daily Times

Marriott bomber stayed at Shifa College of Medicine
Islamabad: In a significant breakthrough the investigators of the Marriott blast have traced movement of a key suspect and possible suicide attacker.

Sources said that the bomber visited the capital twice and stayed with students of a private medical college in a hostel.

Based on interrogation of some religious extremists arrested from Punjab, the investigators got information that the suicide bomber, a young man with beard, visited Islamabad twice and stayed in a hostel's room of Shifa College of Medicine, which was under the use of two postgraduate students.

The investigators reached the hostel to take the students in custody for interrogation. However, a college professor asked them to interrogate the students in his presence.

The investigators left the hostel after interrogation, but returned after some days and took the students in custody, the sources said.

Later, the students were shifted to an undisclosed location for further investigation which may help in tracing the mastermind and the terrorist group behind the incidents and their possible links with other groups.

During the investigation, it was revealed that the possible attacker stayed with the students twice in August and September, and he seems to be a 'moulvi' from his appearance during his first visit to the city.

During the course of interrogation from the arrested students, it was revealed that the suspect on his last visit had shaved off his beard and had started to give a look of moderate person.

The sources said the investigation team headed by the FIA director general got the information about the possible suicide attacker during investigations of score of people picked up on suspicion from different part of the country, including Islamabad, Faisalabad, Peshawar and Dera Ismail Khan.

FIA director-general Tariq Pervez said it was premature to comment weather, the man who stayed in the hostel, was suicide attacker or not.

The sources said the investigation revealed that the target of the suicide attack was American Marine, FBI and CIA personnel staying at the hotel. Dawn

HEC's Advanced Network for Researchers Fully Operational
Islamabad: The advanced Pakistan Education and Research Network (PERN), launched by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) that is connected to global Research and Education Networks (RENs) including the Internet2 of USA, Asia-Pacific Advanced Network of continents of Asia and Australia, and GEANT2 network of National RENs of European countries, is fully operational for use by researchers, academicians and students who may initiate activities and projects with international collaborations.

This link is a result of joint efforts of the HEC and the National Science Foundation of USA who equally co-funded a dedicated link from PERN to Internet2. PERN now has a total R&E link capacity of 155 Mbps and it is now leading in South Asia being three times bigger than the linking capacity of India's Education & Research Network (ERNet) which is connected to global R&E network over a 45 Mbps link.

Through this connectivity, academicians and researchers would be directly connected to other peer RENs, resulting in lesser delays and low latency with add on features of security and high performance for the specialized and time sensitive activities, like simulations on distributed resources, telemedicine and video conferencing, remote instrumentations, etc.

Moreover, universities and institutes now have access to the large contents and research resources available with the constituent academic and research institutions in RENs in advanced countries. These include free online educational multimedia-on-demand, online library resources, access to supercomputing and grid nodes, collaborative tools, digital heritage, test bed for the future internet design, advanced network services' test bed for IPv6, multicast implementation, layer 2 virtual private networks (VPNs) etc.

The purpose of this network connection is to support Pakistan's science and technology collaborations with technologically advanced countries. The network connections will greatly assist the scientific collaborations being defined between the developed countries and Pakistan by allowing more direct, high-speed access and communication among S&T investigators and worldwide S&T resources.

As an example this allows High-speed access to the Bio-Mirror and other genomics based archive data hosted by Indiana University which is critical for genome research will be facilitated by this high-performance connection. Similarly, this connection will allow more rapid access to data originating from the NSF funded Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) project to assist the efforts of the Earth Sciences and Seismology WG.

The project of PERN was initiated in 2002 as an Educational Intranet. Since then the Network has evolved significantly and provides valuable services like high speed internet, audio/video conferencing, access to digital library resources including journals, books and research thesis in digitalized format.
