tracks& in India Author: Adil Jal Darukhanawala Publication: DJ Media Pages: 402 Price: Rs4500 Mercedes-Benz is the elder statesman of automobile marques with an unbroken production history going back to 1886 when Karl and Bertha Benz patented the world’s first petrol automobile the Motorwagen a three-wheeler which made no attempt to conceal its descent from the bicycle Darukhanawala reports in his superbly detailed book that the Motorwagen is back in production 130 years later — in Coimbatore GD Gopal Naidu’s Geedee Car Museum reverse engineered a model imported from Europe and now supplies Bentley Engineering with replicas for collectors Share This Article Related Article That’s just one of the surprises in this voluminous history of Mercedes-Benz which devotes about a quarter of its pages to the fortunes of the marque in India a surprisingly varied story Mercedes-Benz entered the market as the wheels of choice of royalty and the book devotes 15 spreads to the cream of the royal stables: Benzes from the garages of Maharaja Yashwantrao Holkar II Salar Jung III Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur of Jammu and Kashmir the Nizam of Hyderabad the royal family of Gondal… the list is practically endless At the same time the Benz three-pointed star was a familiar demotic sight on Indian roads for decades thanks to the workhorse of the transport industry the bonneted truck With slatted wooden bodies fabricated in workshops all over the country and emblazoned with delightfully rustic artwork slogans and poetry the Mercedes truck dominated the transport sector until the Tata logo displaced it However it is back now thanks to a tie-up with the Tatas As the title suggests the first mover of the book is the thrill of racing About half the pages are littered with scads of archival photographs from tracks and rallies which are hardly ever seen today Racing was quite the rage at the turn of the century as the automobile sparked off the modern era which is marked by the ability to travel widely in personal transport Darukhanawala picks up the thread from the racing paddock at Dieppe and dusty roads in Bordeaux and traces the triumphs of Mercedes-Benz through the rise of the Grand Prix circuits in the mid-20th century displaying photographs from Silverstone Monza and Buenos Aires This isn’t just for the racing enthusiast though It is social history too There is a picture of Mercedes Jellinek — the daughter of the diplomat and technology evangelist Emil Jellinek after whom the marque is named —at the wheel of a 1906 Grand Prix rig The Daimler-Benz merger of 1926 is marked by superb promotional material from the period A few years later in 1935 we see Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels inspecting a W25 Grand Prix model Three years after as Germany armed and Europe inched closer to conflict a photo shows Hitler conversing with ace Mercedes-Benz driver Rudolf Caracciola about the record-breaking (and eerily scifi-styled) W125 On its cockpit fairing it wears the Nazi swastika Surprising archival images such as these and the detailed notes which go with with will prove to be the main draw of this book However the attentions of a professional editor

Jonathan Jarvis took over as director of the US National Park Service (NPS) in 2009 he needed some advice How should he deal with invasive pythons in the Everglades What about archaeological artifacts exposed by melting glaciers What he needed was a scientist So he tapped Gary Machlis a human ecologist and science policy expert to serve as the first-ever science adviser to the NPS director Machlis a fellow of AAAS (which publishes Science) is co-leader of the Department of the Interior’s Strategic Sciences Group which has conducted scientific assessments of environmental disasters from Deepwater Horizon to Hurricane Sandy This weekend at the annual meeting of AAAS Machlis celebrated the 100th anniversary of the NPS with a presentation about science in national parks Science sat down with him afterward to talk about the future of park research Q: Why does NPS need a science adviser A: Director Jarvis … needed to know the best available science If the park service has a budget where should that money be spent What are the most important things that we need to take care of If an invasive species is harming the native species in a park what do we do about it And how do we make sure our employees and our visitors stay safe Those are science and evidence-based questions So my job is to deliver unfettered advice There are only four words I can’t say to him Q: Which are A: "I told you so" I think many scientists don’t understand fully that when you’ve delivered your advice to a leader as best you can and they’ve integrated your information fairly and listened carefully and they make a decision that you might not agree with you’ve done your job And then you’ve got to move on to the next decision If you whine about it your credibility and your ability to aid the decision-maker are compromised Q: What research projects are being conducted at national parks A: Ethnographic studies in Alaska to better understand subsistence; how to preserve the integrity of the hydrological system in the Colorado river; how to deal with disasters like Hurricane Sandy or Deepwater Horizon We have a lot of work on climate change Some of the most exciting work is on night sky and sound The park service of the 21st century considers natural quiet and the sounds of nature as a resource that needs to be preserved So you can see that it’s across all the fields of science Q: During your talk you mentioned “environmental DNA monitoring” Can you explain what this is A: Everywhere we go we deposit small amounts of our DNA And as DNA sequencing is becoming cheaper and more practical it means that this sort of residue that animals and humans leave can be used to monitor species So for example in Glacier National Park from little pieces of barbed wire or sometimes scratchy surfaces on a tree [researchers] collect hair from a bear and identify the actual individual bear And they identify that bear’s relatives and those bears’ cubs They are able to get extraordinarily accurate information about the population with a minimally invasive technique Q: What research isn’t being done that you could see happening in the future A: Much of the artificial intelligence community is working on programs that can do semantic and deep learning Already there are experiments in robotics and AI programs that people can interact with A primitive form of that is the Siri that’s on your iPhone Imagine that artificial intelligence expanding so that everyone would have access to the information they were curious about at a national park—a “Siri” that is a trained park ranger We’re not in the business of developing artificial intelligence but I believe that in the near-horizon 20 to 30-year future AI will be part of the suite of ways we help the public use their parks Q: Are there ways in which we aren’t taking advantage of national parks as a scientific resource A: Yes I think we should use parks as science education portals I personally think science textbooks should be rewritten so if it’s talking about geology it says "and you can go visit Grand Teton National Park and learn about it You own it It’s your heritage Here’s how to go" I don’t think there’s a single topic taught in high school science that can’t be linked to a national park Q: What are your fears for NPS and NPS-sponsored research A: It’s always difficult for organizations to renew themselves We have to create a landscape where young people…care about parks contribute to parks and work hard to protect them Another fear would be that the American people forget for a moment what they own It’s a sad thing if a family lives near a national park where they could learn so much but doesn’t know about it or can’t afford to go or if they got there they wouldn’t know what to do And then I guess the last fear would be climate change habitat fragmentation pollution biodiversity—the whole list of threats By 2050 Glacier National Park may not have
