A blazar in the early universe
Details revealed in galaxy's jet 12.8 billion light-years from Earth
Observations with the continent-wide Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) reveal previously unseen details in a jet of material ejected from the core of a galaxy seen as it was when the universe was only about 7% of its current age.
Astronomers are studying black holes that could have formed in the early universe, before stars and galaxies were born. Such primordial black holes (PBHs) could account for all or part of dark matter, be responsible for some of the observed gravitational waves signals, and seed supermassive black holes found in the center of our Galaxy and other galaxies.

2021, UK Businesses and COVID-19
Happy new year to all! I know it’s hard to move on after all that we have faced.
How will you remember 2020?
Many lost their loved ones, others were stranded for months due to travel restrictions and when it comes to businesses, don’t even ask!
Almost 25% Yes, 25‰ of business were forced to close during this torrid year. With the country already withering economically due to the BREXIT crisis and political mishaps at their peak, this pandemic did nothing more but accelerate an inevitable collapse.
Though the vast majority of business said to have been affected were those of a recreational nature, many shops selling “essentials” were also struck by the outbreak, due to lack of cash flow and stock not arriving.
There were some businesses, however, that not only survived but continued to operate smoothly, increasing profits as usual. Really?
Which businesses were they and how?
Well, wise decisions are those made at the right time. It has been witnessed that those businesses that were heavily reliant on internet and telecommunications to operate, saved between 50-70% by using remote call centre services in countries like Pakistan, India and Philippines to name a few.
How does that save money, you may ask?
Well firstly, the staff comes cheap. Whereas in the UK an experienced telephone operator will probably set you back an average £8 an hour, you can avail the same services in these remote call centres for almost half the price. Another great benefit seen in using a remote call centre set up was the fact that businesses no longer needed acres of office space to accommodate a workforce. Not only did they save £Thousands by reduced rent but also saved staggering amounts from bills and maintenance.
What about the quality of service?
Can these call Centre agents provide the same quality of service as a UK resident would? The answer is quite surprising, yes. In the past, maybe 10 years (or so) ago, you could probably argue against that. In the early days, there were major quality issues. Accents sounded off, staff had very little knowledge of the product/service they were offering, lack of ability to make a general conversation and there was no proper training offered.
Times, however, have changed – drastically. With India once a hub for outsourcing, competition from upcoming businesses in the Philippines and especially Pakistan changed the whole dimension. Each country fighting to be the outsourcing hub sparked a huge improvement in aspects that had previously underwhelmed. Although India still has the largest share of this multi-billion dollar market, it is no longer the preferred destination for outsourcing. Countless fraudulent call centres across India have looted many already struggling businesses, with no trace of the criminals to be found. This prompted many YouTube bloggers and journalists to investigate. It didn’t take long for a hacker to hack into some of these calls centres and uncover the ghastly methods used by these criminals to rob innocent people, all doing so in the company of laughing colleagues with the mic on mute. Videos of these investigations can be found on social media. This decline has given rise to countries like Pakistan, who have become a BPO powerhouse in Asia.
What would be the attractive thing about outsourcing to Pakistan?
The attractive thing about outsourcing to Pakistan is that the country’s Federal Investigation Authority or F.I.A has an active cybercrime cell that is constantly on the looks for suspicious businesses providing online services. Not only that, every call Centre in Pakistan undergoes rigorous check by various authorities before being issued a license to trade. I.Ps used for internet services must also be whitelisted by the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority before they can be used for VOIP calls.
Generally speaking, Pakistan is the safest remote call centre destination. What tops it off is the fact that many call centres in Pakistan have been set up and are managed by British nationals, which automatically translates into better-trained staff, better services. This is why it has become a go-to point for UK Business.

For the past couple of years, the marks students score in Matric and FSc exams have witnessed a trend of rapid increase. However, the equivalence awarded to O’ Levels and A’ Levels students have remained constant. While intelligent students score over 95% marks in FSc and even more in Matric, the talented student who achieves the feat of scoring all A*s in O’ Levels as well as in A’ Levels is awarded an equivalence of 90% by the IBCC. With fair opportunities unavailable to a foreign system in Pakistan, the better foreign system’s approach is restricted; the progress in our monopolized system is stagnant.
According to the recently devised policy by the PMC, for admissions in medical colleges 50% marks of FSc or any equivalent program are included in determining the overall merit. As the above mentioned calculations reveal, A’ Levels students are short of 3 marks by default as compared to FSc students of the same mental caliber in merit calculation!
With only around 3500 seats in public sector medical colleges of Punjab as compared to around 90,000 eligible candidates, the competition for a seat in a public sector medical college ends at 4 decimal places! The outcome of this situation is crystal clear: A’ Levels students either turn to the much expensive private medical colleges in Pakistan and abroad or, in some cases, are forced to pursue another career.
Recently, I met a friend who did A’ Levels and then had to go abroad, away from his family in order to pursue his dream of becoming a doctor. When I inquired from him the reason of going abroad, he replied, “A’ levels students hardly make it to a public sector medical college here in Pakistan”. This is not the view of just one person; unfortunately, this is now a well-established fact!
As far as merit calculation for medical universities is concerned, one more aspect needs consideration. Last year, for FSc students, 50% of their FSc marks were included in calculating merit. In other words, two years of hard work is required from them. However, for A’ Levels students, apart from the 3 compulsory subjects of A’ Levels, 8 compulsory subjects of O’ Levels are also included in determining the overall equivalence. As a result, five long years of hard work is required from them. Summing up, a greater hard work ends up in a lesser reward!
Owing to the Coronavirus outbreak, the exams were cancelled this year. A’ Levels students were awarded their expected grades whereas students of second year in FSc were awarded the marks they scored in first year along with 3% grace marks. While there has been no change in the equivalence awarded to A’ Levels students against their grades, FSc students have 3% grace marks added to their results giving them an even better chance to secure seats in public sector medical colleges. Instead of bridging the gap, this decision has further widened it!
So, if one is looking towards gaining admission in a public sector medical college at a later stage, he has only one option: do FSc rather than A’ Levels. However, this decision brings with it some long-term adverse consequences as well. Conceptual learning of A’ Levels will be suppressed by the rote learning of FSc. The students will be restricted to bookish information rather than having a broad base of study. Their ability to think out of the box will gradually be lost!
Increasing the equivalence awarded to O’ Levels and A’ Levels students is the possibly the best remedy in this regard. Awarding 90% for an A* may have been a fair decision some years ago; nowadays, 95% for an A*seems a just approach. This measure will offer equal opportunities to both A’ Levels and FSc students leading to an increased competition for gaining admission in medical colleges and will give rise to a more skillful youth of Pakistan.
A strong counter argument in this regard is that taking the afore-mentioned step will undermine the scope and hence the popularity of our system – Matric and FSc. Though this may seem apparently true but there is a silver lining to it as well! The increasing popularity of O’ Levels and A’ Levels, as a result, will pressurize our system to adopt the better methodology of teaching and examinations offered by Cambridge which, in turn, will go a long way in elevating the standard of education system in Pakistan.
Decisions are made keeping in view the situation at that particular time and are attempted to satisfy the majority. So should be the aims of the decision concerning awarding an equal equivalence to O’ Levels and A’ Levels students.
