The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) has directed the BBMP to ensure all construction and demolition (C&D) waste, especially from places where the demolition drive is on, is sent to landfills and abandoned quarry sites.

Detecting atmospheric CO2 with a sensitive sensor 8.8.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Take a deep breath. Chances are that air filling your lungs is impure and polluted with deadly gases like carbon dioxide. According to the World Health Organisation, every year around two million people die prematurely due to air pollution. The air we breathe consists mostly of nitrogen and oxygen and minute quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2) and argon. Outdoor ambient air normally has about 250-350 parts per million (ppm) of CO2. Breathing in air containing more than 1000 ppm of CO2 can cause headache, drowsiness and nausea and anything greater than 10000 ppm of CO2 can cause permanent brain damage, coma and even death. Conventional metal oxide semiconductor gas sensors can detect CO2 in the higher range. However, for detecting atmospheric CO2 concentration, which is in the range of 400 ppm, a highly sensitive detector is required. While optical sensors based on absorption spectroscopy can be very accurate, they are highly expensive and bulky, precluding large scale deployment. Enhanced performance Now, ...

Chalking down impressions 3.8.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
This photograph was taken in 1966 at ITI Vidya Mandir Kannada Tamil Primary School. I was a Tamil teacher in the school located in ITI Colony, Dooravani Nagar. Only ITI employees were permitted to enter the colony. From 1966 to 1998, it was a very calm place and vehicles inside the colony were not allowed. When the construction of the cable stud bridge started in 1998, the vehicles had no choice but to enter the colony. Vehicular pollution started in the colony then. This school was started by the ITI education committee for the children of its factory employees in 1958. It had both primary and high school. The primary school had two separate units — English Primary School (EPS) and Kannada Tamil Primary School (KTPS). I was newly married and had shifted to the city from Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu. My husband didn't want me to work but to relieve my boredom, I visited the school with the children in the neighbourhood who studied there. I met teachers Sampath Kumari Bhaghyalakshmi, Selma and Mary ...
