LG asks DDA to involve RWAs in park maintenance 20.4.2017 DNA: Money
Reviewing the working of biodiversity and DDA parks in the capital, Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday directed officials to have more open gyms and involve RWAs in the maintenance of parks. At the sixth theme-based meeting attended by senior DDA officials at Raj Niwas, the LG said that biodiversity parks are a vital component of urban infrastructure while instructing officers to see that the vanishing flora and fauna could be preserved. He told officers that biodiversity parks should be kept well, as these are reserves for nature and act as a green shield against climate change and air pollution. "These parks are vital for urban infrastructure and need to be sustained through a management system," the LG said. He also emphasised that the local community, including RWAs, should be involved in the maintenance of DDA parks. "The DDA administration must explore a management structure to associate with the local residents in the work. Ownership of the place is important for the upkeep of public ...

For a third time, Enviroment ministry issues fresh draft notification on Western Ghats 2.3.2017 DNA: India
With no resolution yet in sight on demarcating the final extent of Western Ghats eco-sensitive areas (ESA), the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) pushed ahead the deadline for a third time and issued a fresh draft notification.   On March 10, 2014, the environment ministry had issued a draft notification identifying 60,000 sq km of area in Ghats as ecologically sensitive and the ministry had to finalise the draft in 545 days, which was due on September 9, 2015. To supersede that the ministry came out with a notification on September 4 and the latest one will replace the 2015 one.   The fresh draft notification, based on the report of the K Kasturirangan-led high-level working group, once again proposed to notify 56,825 sq km areas as ESA and ban mining, quarrying, sand mining, new thermal plants, new hydropower plants, red category industries and big townships. In 2014, following demands from the six Western Ghats states — Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Goa and Tamil ...

Activists cry foul after USDA removes online database that included animal abuse 6.2.2017 DNA: Money
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) shut down an online database on Friday that included information about animals mistreated, injured and killed, reported CNN . The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) cited privacy concerns in removing the documents, but one animal welfare activist said he believes the department is caving to pressure from groups that didn't like the information being so easily accessible. "APHIS, during the past year, has conducted a comprehensive review of the information it posts on its website for the general public to view," the announcement reads. "As a result of the comprehensive review, APHIS has implemented actions to remove certain personal information from documents it posts on APHIS' website involving the Horse Protection Act and the Animal Welfare Act." The move has resulted in widespread criticism, with organisations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) calling the "abrupt" removal of the information shameful. “For ...

There have been protests, the invention of terms such as 'alternative facts' and even diktats to government agencies to stop talking about climate change. In all this madness, a story reported by the washington Post has been doing the rounds for showing that kindness still exists in this world. Three Trump supporters, who entered a restaurant that promotes social justice in Washington DC, gave an African American waitress a $450 tip with a message, reported the Washington Post.\ The three men, who origianlly hail from Texas, told the newspaper that they knew they stuck out in a place where African-American art and images cover the walls. Jason White, one of the men, said he could sense when his waitress greeted them that she knew they did too. The waitress Rosalynd Harris had arrived at work that morning still high off the energy from the Women's March. Her customers Saturday had been abuzz with ...
