Scientists develop simple machine to clear weed 13.12.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The simple and stylish weeding machine at Ulsoor lake has left many onlookers awestruck. The machine is more so unique as it uses the engine of the outdated, yet popular Maruti- 800 car. The scientists from National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), civilian aerospace R&D laboratory have designed this weed cutting machine called airboat over the past three months. They are now testing it at the MEG side of Ulsoor Lake. S Selvarajan, chief scientist from NAL said that the defence officials cooperated and gave a testing space. The machine landed at the lake in September and since then the weeds have been regularly cleared. The operations were not hampered during rainy days also. The team states that the machine can be used to clear weeds in other lakes also, including Bellandur and Varthur, but the safety of the machines is important. At the MEG centre, the guards take care of the machine. Apart from clearing weeds, the machine can also clear floating waste. The machine can also be used as weed cutter and to ...

BJP demands NIA or CBI probe into mysterious death of youth 13.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Rejecting the ruling Congress partys charge that it was fomenting communal trouble, the BJP today demanded an investigation by the CBI or the NIA into the mysterious death of a young fisherman last week, which has sparked tension in the coastal Uttara Kannada district. Paresh Kamalakar Mesta (19) had gone missing on December 6. His body was found near a lake in Honnavar in the district on the night of December 8 under mysterious circumstances. Sirsi and Kumata towns in the district have been hit by violence since then. Mestas family and local residents have alleged he was abducted and killed amid reports the body bore marks of attack by sharp objects. Police, however, have rejected the claims, citing a report by doctors, pending a postmortem examination. The BJP has blamed "jihadi elements" for Mestas death, while Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has accused the saffron party of using the incident for "political gains". The party has been saying that nearly 15 activists of the Sangh Parivar and pro-Hindu ...

DH 2017: Bengaluru! you're at POINT BLANK: The fall and the rise of the city 12.12.2017 deccanherald.com
6. "Do bans really work?" ask people on the street There have been arguments in favour of keeping highways free from the pub menace. A regular, heavy drinker would keep stock in his or her vehicle, but it is better not to attract an occasional drinker towards liquor with an outlet on the way. 7. Wrong parking, overspeeding, the nightmares Many areas in the city have turned accident-prone zones due, primarily, to a large number of private buses violating traffic rules. The police list out common complaints against private buses: Wrong parking, stopping buses on roads to pick up passengers, overspeeding, signal-jumping, pick-up point on congested roads, competing with rival operators and government buses, besides overloading. 8. African students, bridging divides Trapped in the cross-fire of cultural divisions, are African students in Bengaluru getting stereotyped? Are local communities who complain about the misdeeds of a few students unfairly branded as racist? Or is there a genuine chance for consensus, ...

Yet another protest against sewage plants 9.12.2017 deccanherald.com
The members of Federation of Apartment Associations Bengaluru (FAAB) have organised a silent march on December 16, against the imposition of retrospective Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) in apartments by the BWSSB. More than 500 residents from 218 apartment associations under the federation are expected to participate in the rally from Town Hall to Freedom Park. "We are against the retrospective imposition of STPs in apartments which can be a threat to the buildings and moreover, the National Green Tribunal never ordered to include STPs in old apartments," said S Shivakumar, general secretary, FAAB. Shivakumar also said that most of these old apartment complexes have their sewage lines connected to the existing underground drain and it is the responsibility of the BWSSB to maintain the system. "Among the existing STPs that are maintained by BWSSB, all of them are situated near lakes and they are letting out the treated water into the water body. The water is supposed to be used only for industrial and ...

BJP demands NIA probe into Hindu activist's death 8.12.2017 Deccan Herald - TOP STORIES RSS FEEDS
BJP leader Shobha Karandlaje on Saturday demanded a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) into the death of Hindu activist Paresh Mesta, whose body was found in a lake in Honnavar on Friday. "Mesta was brutally killed by some Muslim goondas, who had tacit support of the police. The killing was covered up because Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was touring the Uttara Kannada district," Karandlaje charged, at a press conference. "As many as 20 Hindu activists have been killed, so far. Siddaramaiah says he's also a Hindu. How many more Hindu lives must be lost? The CM should answer this,"

Crowdsourcing heritage list, the democratic way 6.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Citizens identify and compile a comprehensive list of heritage buildings, structures and traditions in every BBMP ward. The list then gets filtered, analysed and routed to the state government for formulating a planned heritage conservation strategy. This is the big idea behind a new public campaign slowly gaining traction, both offline and online. Conceptualised as part of the #HeritageBeku campaign, this crowdsourcing initiative is about democratising heritage conservation, a bottom-up approach. "Unless you have lived in a particular place/ward, you will never notice the heritage value of the location. It could be a building, a tree, a lake or even a location rooted in local history," explains civic activist Priya Chetty-Rajagopal. Compilation of the heritage list will take two routes: A formal approach that involves the ward corporator, and an informal, participatory route where active citizens are invited to share their list. "The plan is to get citizens who want to be on the ward committees lead ...
