stubble burning: a burning agricultural and environmental issue

In an attempt to stem the serious problem of paddy straw being torched by farmers, the Punjab government has laid down strict orders to punish violators and will hold educative meeting with stakeholders~By Vivian FernandesThe Punjab government has shed its complacency and advised district administrations to act against farmers burning paddy stubble in fields, including imposition of fines and denial of loans. Last year, the Akali Dal government had ignored the polluting activity, despite tell-tale signs in fields, as it was facing elections and did not wish to risk aggravating the farming community. Farmers were still recovering from losses caused by the slump in basmati prices and the failure of the cotton crop owing to a devastating attack of whiteflies the previous year.In an order issu

pil to stop ravana effigy burning dismissed by sc

Above: A PIL in SC said that burning of Ravana’s effigy is illegal. Photo: UNIAnand Prakash Sharma had filed a PIL with the Supreme Court, asking for the burning of statues/effigies of Ravana to be stopped. The case came up for hearing before the Supreme Court bench of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud on Monday (July 10).The PIL said that this burning is unnecessary and illegal. Such action is not written/prescribed in any granth, said the PIL. Ravana had dedicated (his life) towards many things, it said. He was not that bad. No one knows when they started burning the statues of Ravana. Hence this should be stopped.The CJI observed: “This is their own belief. Article 25 (freedom of conscience and free profession, practice and propagation of religion) is there. We cannot i

benefits of advanced wood-burning stoves greater than thought

A recent study from North Carolina State University finds that advanced wood-burning stoves designed for use in the developing world can reduce air pollution more than anticipated, because gaseous emissions from traditional wood stoves form more particulate matter in the atmosphere than researchers previously thought.
"Previous studies have looked solely at direct emissions from cookstoves," says Andrew Grieshop, an assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering at NC State and corresponding author of a paper describing the work. "We've now done a series of experiments to determine what happens to those emissions while they are in the atmosphere."At issue is particulate matter (PM): minute, airborne particles that can contribute to human health problems, such as

key plant species may be important for supporting wildflower pollinators

Increased agricultural production has likely led to loss, fragmentation, and degradation of flower-rich habitats for pollinators. To counteract these negative effects of modern agricultural practices, efforts to maintain and restore diverse plants in agricultural landscapes—called agri-environmental schemes (AES)—have been implemented in numerous European countries.

to bury or burn: cbse question sparks row

A question in the Biology paper of Class XII board examination asking students to justify as to why “burying” should be promoted over “burning” to protect the environment from air pollution landed the CBSE in a soup on Wednesday.“Public all over India is very much concerned about the deteriorating air quality in large parts of India. Alarmed by this situation the residents welfare association of your locality organised an awareness programme entitled (sic) ‘Bury, not burn.’ They invited you being a biology student to participate.

guj hc commutes death sentence for 11 in godhra train burning

Gujarat High Court on Monday commuted death sentence of 11 convicted for burning of S6 coach of Sabarmati Express near Godhra railway station on February 27, 2002, leading to ghastly deaths of 59 persons, to life sentence.The train burning had triggered massive communal riots across the state of Gujarat, leading to deaths of another about 1000 people. The incident also changed the narrative of polity in Gujarat and the country going forward.A total of 130 persons were accused, of which 94 persons stood trial on charges of murder and conspiracy. Of these 63 were acquitted by special court in 2011. The special court had pronounced life sentence for 20 and death sentence for 11 persons. This was challenged in the Gujarat High Court, which heard the petition and kept its sentence reserved for

foolball will bring rag doll physics to medieval times

In Foolball, you’ll have two gladiators battling until their king is pleased. Of course, they use the king’s jester, the fool, as a ball in an all-out game of trying to score by getting the foolball through burning rings.The challenge, of course, is that you can’t really control the gladiators’ arms or legs. You just move them from side to side, counting on your mastery of physics to get the foolball through the burning rings. It looks like an absolute blast, medieval-style.

what the controlled chaos of burning man reveals about cities

Every year, for the past 26 years, something truly remarkable happens: an entire city appears out of the desert. I’m speaking, of course, of Black Rock City, in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, erected for the quasi-ritualistic celebration of art, radical inclusion, and free-to-be-you-and-me-ness known as Burning Man.Burners will come home raving about barter system and the impromptu wedding they attended in not much more than goggles, but the festival's most impressive feat may be this infrastructural coup. In a moment when the powers at be can't even fund the country’s shambling roads and bridges, the 2,000 organizers and volunteers who run Burning Man put together—and then take apart—a 70,000-person city in the space of two months.

zac efron lived ‘every girl’s dream’ when hugh jackman carried him out of a burn

If you thought the set of Hollywood's next movie musical, The Greatest Showman, was all circus magic and family fun, think again. Last month, a staged fire got out of control on the set of the star-studded movie. Luckily, stars Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron had already wrapped the precarious scene when the set piece went up in flames. The scene in question called for Jackman's character, legendary showman P.T. Barnum, to carry his assistant Phillip (Efron) out of a burning house. According to Efron, he had no idea how intense the flames actually were until he watched the scene on playback. "It started to get late, and some of the pyrotechnics got a little bit too hot," Efron told MTV's Josh Horowitz at CinemaCon on Tuesday (March 28). "We burst out of the building. It looked great on camera.
