Research Terminates at Infinity.
Knowledge has no limits:
Though, research at higher level has assumed immeasurable dimensions with its classification into different fields of study, yet , there are matters of mutual interest to give a comprehensive treatment to the subject under investigation. In surmounting the problems in respective areas of research, one is invariably forced to encroach other disciplines. There are a number of instances of joint ventures, involving scientists from divergent fields of study, to develop consensus to conclude. In the strict sense, Research at the top level has resisted to have been colonized or survive in isolation. The alliance of natural, life and social sciences has provided new dimensions leading to a new era of interactions between man and nature. Nature has always been compromising whenever man intellectually approached to share its secrets.
Study in genetics, has impact on a number of physical and biological sciences.
Research in crystallography is extensively applied by physicists, chemists and chemical engineers etc. alike.
Experimentation by Pakistani Scientists Destines to Make a Colossal Breakthrough in Cosmology.
Finding during the Century’s Longest Lunar Eclipse Marks Paradigm Shifts in Interplanetary Astrophysical Understandings.
Breaking News Feature/ --
The biggest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century has occurred on 27th-28th July 2018.
During the longest manifestation of natural phenomenon, which extended for a record 102 minutes and 57 seconds, a gigantic academic and scientific contribution for the advancement of space sciences and cosmological studies has been made by Pak scientists alongside the laterally coastal area of the Indian Ocean’s purlieu-zone in Karachi.
Pakistani inter-disciplinary researchers have made a historic breakthrough of demonstrating the first direct method of measuring the ‘Cyclotron Radius in the Milieu-circumstance of Hydrogen’, which has been termed as ‘Hydro-Cyclotron Radius’ (HCR), by the P.I. of the cross-disciplinary scientists’ team carrying out the first ever experimentation on corresponding connections and causal relationship between that the lunar magnetic flux can have on the Hydrogen element.
The cross-disciplinary panel of Pakistani scientists observing and demonstrating the first ever ‘Hydro-Cyclotron Radius’ extent, includes;
Prof. Dr. Zafar Saeed Saify (Ph. D., D. Sc.) Former VC: University of Karachi, Senior Scientist: HEJ.
Prof. Dr. Umar Farooq (Ph. D.) Former VC: D.U.H.S.
Prof. Dr. Qadhi Aurangzeb Al Hafi (Ph. D., D. Sc.) P.I.: SAARC Postdoc Academia
Prof. Dr. Ashraf Ch. (Ph. D.) Representative: Royal Society of Chemistry England.
Prof. Dr. Khalida M. Khan (Ph. D.) Former UNESCO Chair at PU.
The team was led by multidisciplinary scientist of Pakistan, Prof. Dr. Aurangzeb Hafi, who is currently serving as P.I. of various post-doctoral research projects in several universities of Asia.
To date, notably, the world’s leading platforms including NASA have not claimed yet the Cyclotron Radius measurements in Umbral and Penumbral referent-frames so far.
“Besides the HCR measurements, during the course of celestial observations and cosmological findings, the phenomenon of Magneto-Hydro-Tropism (MHT) was clearly and affirmably evidenced as per the scientific parameters.” stated the scientists carrying out the research task during the century’s longest eclipse’s occurrence on 27th-28th July 2018.
“The ever first demonstration of measuring the ‘Hydro-cyclotron Radius’, and evidential endorsement of the phenomenon of Magneto-Hydro-Tropism (MHT) would broaden the prospects for achieving results to enhance the cosmological understandings as well as exploring the far-impacting avenues that would mark paradigm shifts in academic perspectives and scientific contexts”, learnt the panel as affirmed by Prof. Dr. Zafar Saeed Saify, former VC of the Karachi University.
The event has fetched Pakistan's ‘leading-edge image’ at an international level.

HEC Chairman Should Immediately Resign Over Poor Performance: Federal Academic Staff Association
By Contributors -
Islamabad: Newly elected cabinet of Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) has demanded from HEC Chairman Dr. Mukhtar Ahmad to tender resignation immediately over poor performance.
Elections of FAPUASA concluded on Sunday where Dr. Kaleemullah Barech from University of Balochistan was elected President, Dr. Muhammad Shoaib from UET Lahore was elected Vice president, Dr. Shakeel Farooqi from Karachi University was elected General Secretary, Dr. Raza Ali Khan was elected as Executive Member Engineering and Dr. Hamayon Khan was elected as Ex-Officio member.
In a joint press statement after election, cabinet of FAPUASA vowed to protect the autonomy of universities in Pakistan. “We demand devolution of Higher Education Commission as per 18th Constitutional Amendment and establishment of provincial HECs for implementation of recent judgment of Lahore High Court.

FAPUASA also demanded to end interference in internal affairs of universities and urged respect for statutory bodies of universities. The press statement also asked the Law Enforcement Agencies to vacate the premises of University of Balochistan.
Earlier, Dr. Fareed Khan was elected as President of Balochistan Chapter. Dr. Shehzad Ashraf (IIUI) President of Islamabad Chapter, Dr. Hamayon as President of KPK Chapter. Dr. Javed Ahmad (BZU) as President of Punjab Chapter and Dr. Naimat Ullah Laghari as President of Sindh Chapter.
