James Sensenbrenner Jr. 69 represents the 5th congressional district in eastern Wisconsin A conservative Republican Sensenbrenner is perhaps best known to the public as a leader of the 1998 effort to impeach President Bill Clinton He’s also played high-profile roles in debates over national security and immigration as the chair of the House Judiciary Committee In 1997 after serving 16 years on the House science committee Sensenbrenner became its chair His 4-year tenure was marked by a businesslike approach to legislating support for modest increases in science spending at a time when House Republicans were focused on budget-cutting and dogged and often highly critical oversight of Clinton administration efforts to involve Russia in building the International Space Station He could also be a stickler for protocol: In 2000 he reduced a senior National Science Foundation official to tears after barring her from a hearing because the agency missed a deadline for submitting her testimony More recently his service on the science committee was interrupted by 4 years as the senior Republican on the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming where he was a reliably skeptical voice on climate science Last week Sensenbrenner spoke with ScienceInsider about his effort to return as head of the House science panel Here is an edited version of his remarks Q: These leadership races are a bit of a black box for outsiders Do you consider yourself an underdog or the frontrunner JS: It really is very hard to say I’m conducting a vigorous campaign talking about what I want to do as chairman I want to make the committee an extremely active player in science policy particularly in terms of how to stretch the science research dollars at a time of obvious austerity and reauthorize both NASA and the Commercial Space Act so that the two are coordinated I don’t think that either NASA or the private sector will have enough money to restore America’s preeminence in space if they do it separately But if they do it together I think they’ve got a shot at it Q: Politics is often about distinguishing yourself from your competitors How would you distinguish yourself from representatives Lamar Smith (R-TX) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) JS: Well I would distinguish myself in two ways One is to look backwards When I was chairman [of the science committee] there were 23 science bills that were signed into law And we did vigorous oversight particularly into NASA and the Clinton-Gore administration’s relationship with Russia on the space station Looking back at it [that program] meant that the money that could have been used to develop the shuttle replacement and do some other research ended up going to the Russians to finish the space station then they broke the agreement and didn’t pay for what they agreed on And when I was the chairman of the Judiciary Committee there were 115 judiciary bills that I managed on the floor that became law So you know I’ve worked within the committee to get as much agreement on both sides as I possibly can and then I am able to work with the Senate to try to get bills passed and landing on the president’s desk When I was the science chair Clinton was president; so I can work with a White House of the other party When I was judiciary chair the Democrats controlled the Senate for a period of time and I was able to work with [them] on some pretty important and controversial stuff You know I am not afraid to get involved in controversial issues I think I can push the science agenda forward Q: On the reauthorization front are there other particular programs such as the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) that would be a priority for you JS: I did not support [ARPA-E] when it was originally passed because it was not fine-tuned Now I think it might need a bit more of competitiveness advantage … have a little more competition But I am very insistent on getting reauthorizations enacted into law for two reasons One is that if we don’t do it we basically turn over to the appropriators how the money is spent The appropriators are very busy people; they do a lot of the really important work in Congress But I think on authorization issues science in particular the people who are on the science committee have an awful lot more expertise The other thing is that with an authorization in place an authorizing committee will be able to do a lot more effective oversight I learned that by getting all of the authorization bills passed when I was the chairman of the science committee and the judiciary committee I passed the first Department of Justice reauthorization in 23 years And it really gave [senior committee Democrats] and me a pretty effective way of doing oversight Q: Are there particular areas where you would focus oversight JS: Yes Oversight becomes much much more important when we are going to be living in a period of austerity I hope that we will be able to replace the sequestration with something else But whether that happens or not is going to be decided by people whose pay grade is far above mine My method of oversight has always been to start out with a letter [to the agency officials involved] and then if there is no response is to start kicking up [a fuss] And during 10 years as a committee chair I was able to get what was needed by doing it by letter having the staff negotiate things out I am not the type of person that believes that you change problems and agencies by having one hearing with a 40-second sound bite of somebody taking off the agency’s head Q: If you were elected chair how would you use the position to stretch science budgets JS: Well first of all we’ve gotta reemphasize peer review There’s been a lot of wasted money as we’ve gone away from peer review … [I]f you don’t do peer review you either have political earmarks or you have bureaucratic earmarks And while peer review has got its problems as any system would I think it is far better than any of the alternatives that have been placed on the table The other thing we’ve got to do is deal with the education issues When I see surveys that have American students ranked 25th in the world in science and Chinese students ranked first that’s really scary I don’t know what it will take to wake up everybody to the fact that our standard of living is based on productivity which is based on math and science and students graduating and inventing and building state of the art things that have never been seen before Sputnik woke us up out of our sleep back in the 1950s and we may need to have another wake up call to be able to play catch up If we turn people loose we will be able to play catch-up Q: The science committee has been called a backwater How would you change that and attract members JS: I’m going to be able to tell leadership that I’m going to make that committee interesting if I’m the chairman I’m going to want people to be on the committee And my reputation as a committee chair is that I gave an awful lot of things for freshman and sophomore committee members to do so that they could go back to their districts and say that they had accomplishments both in terms of their standing in their districts but also in impacting national policy I’m going to give them a job to do and make it interesting and fun for them Give them something that they probably would never get with committees that have the reputation as being first-tier assignments See more coverage on science and the US 2012 electionsBy: IANS | Hyderabad | Published: June 14 2017 9:58 pm Have you relished Hyderabad’s haleem (Source: pagolbhai/Flickr) Top News Biryani may be Hyderabad’s signature dish but the world-famous delicacy takes a back seat during Ramadan Yes during the holy month haleem a porridge-like dish made of wheat lentils and meat is all there is on foodies’ minds?

Thank you! :)Written by Nandini Rathi | Updated: December 3 2016 1:56 pm President-elect Donald Trump told PM Nawaz Sharif that Pakistan is an “amazing” country (File) Top News In a freewheeling conversation with Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif President-elect Donald Trump seems to have caused a lot of distress to his State department and diplomacy On Thursday the Pakistani foreign ministry released a statement that Islamabad welcomes the overtures of US President-elect Donald Trump who told PM Nawaz Sharif that Pakistan is an “amazing” country and that he would love to come to this “fantastic country — a fantastic place with fantastic people” This “readout” published by the Pakistani government turned out to be a “surprisingly candid” version that was reproduced to read just like Trump’s voice in which he showered compliments not just upon Pakistan but upon Sharif too calling him a “terrific guy” doing “amazing work that is visible everywhere” “I am ready and willing to play any role that you want me to play to address and find solutions to the outstanding problems” Trump was reported to have said The Trump team has since then released their own reserved acknowledgment in a three-sentence statement that referred to the conversation that transpired with Sharif as “productive” and that Trump is “looking forward to a lasting and strong personal relationship with Prime Minister Sharif” However it disavowed the flowery language used in the Pakistani version It is not hard to understand the eagerness of Sharif and his cabinet as clearly the glowing praise in superlatives must have been unexpected music to their ears the glee of which led them to release a verbatim transcript of Trump’s words in an uncustomary move with reckless abandon — an act criticised by many in the White House circle as a clear violation of diplomatic protocol Husain Haqqani a former Pakistani ambassador to Washington however said that this breach by his government was a “demonstration of how easily Pakistani leaders misread the signals of their American counterparts” according to the New York Times Reading and misreading the signals of the US President-elect is however part of a greater dilemma at the moment Was Trump who has little foreign policy experience aware of what he was doing The consensus is a resounding “no” Forbes reported that his “flattering” conversation with Sharif shows that he has no awareness of the issues between the US Pakistan and India American presidents in the past have been conscious that their words carry weight and have consequences which makes them circumspect in their remarks But Trump as we know is not just any American President-elect — he is an outsider to the job and the protocol that goes with that level of communication much to the recent mortification of the State department and diplomacy The goof-up led the White House Press secretary Josh Earnest to weigh in urging the President-elect to make use of the policymakers and diplomats’s ready expertise “in planning and conducting his encounters with foreign leaders” It is however unclear to all at the moment to what extent he would avail of these services — now and going forward Understandably that could lead to confusion and chaos if one doesn’t know how to interpret President-to-be Trump’s diplomacy — as in context of Pakistan — US’s troublesome and complicated ally with issues ranging from counter-terrorism to nuclear proliferation Daniel F Feldman a former special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan told in a statement to the New York Times that “by taking such a cavalier attitude to these calls he’s encouraging people not to take him seriously” “He’s made himself not only a bull in a china shop but a bull in a nuclear china shop” he added referring to the anarchy that could ensue from careless mixed signals of the World’s most powerful leader-to-be Trump is the same candidate who during this campaign promised a complete ban on Muslims “in order to stop importing terrorism” whose election resulted a slew of hate crimes against Muslims in the US and the one who spoke of tracking them all via a registry In 2012 he had famously tweeted – “Get it straight: Pakistan is not our friend We’ve given them billions and billions of dollars and what did we get Betrayal and disrespect – and much worse #TimeToGetTough” What can we interpret now from his reportedly effusive cozy call to the leader of the same “fantastic” country Given Trump’s constant flip-flop in his positions and his penchant for talking in superlatives coupled with his desire to be a pleasing charmer to his audience (Sharif in this case) it has become a larger conundrum for the media and the whole wide world as to how to report his bursts and how to interpret their meaning and bearing on future policy For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by
