While Earth's biology hinges on organic compounds, comprised mainly of carbon along with elements like hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulphur, scientists feel alternative chemical frameworks could give rise to alien life forms.

Scientists have discovered that the lancet liver fluke parasite, notorious for turning ants into "zombies" by manipulating their brains, is even more cunning than previously believed. Researchers from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark have found that this parasite has a remarkable ability to get infected ants to avoid the sun's lethal rays when temperatures rise, allowing them to survive longer and spread the parasite further.

Indian equities had a tumultuous ride last week after the US Federal Reserve indicated that it could keep interest rates elevated for longer than expected before. The Fed projections pushed the US Treasury yields to a 16-year peak and lifted the dollar index. In response, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) have turned sellers in Indian equities in September so far, after months of investing heavily. The ongoing India-Canada tiff, rising crude oil prices, and erratic rainfall have also dampened investors’ sentiments. Market analysts believe that uncertain global cues and the sharp surge in US bond yields will keep sentiments on the edge in the near term.
