Old emission norms render RTO helpless 17.4.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Air quality in Bengaluru has drastically come down in the last five years but authorities say they have been rendered toothless by decade-old emission standards. "Emission standards are same for Bengaluru and suburbs and even for towns in forest regions. How can you enforce a universal standard on this city without considering the 66 lakh vehicle population and rapid urbanisation," an official in the Transport department said. The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) had in 2008 concluded that vehicular emission accounts for 42% of the air pollution in the city while construction and industrial activities shared a big part of the remaining 58%. "For the past one year, we have enforced the Construction and Demolition Management Rules, 2016, which have checked the construction-related pollution. We expect the share of vehicles to increase to over 50%. We need another study to confirm this following which we can think of stringent standards," said KSPCB chairman Lakshman. Environment Support ...

Tanium executives exit amid allegations CEO mistreats staff 15.4.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Uber Technologies Inc. and Zenefits, a maker of human resources software, are two companies whose public reputations have been partly undone by such conduct. At least nine senior executives have left in the past eight months, including the president, chief marketing officer, chief accounting officer and the chief of operations and finance. Interviews with more than two dozen current and former employees, investors and business partners, along with text messages and staff contracts seen by Bloomberg, also suggest the CEO has fired workers before they could cash in their stock options — a practice that had the effect of fortifying his control over the company. In staff meetings, Hindawi would frequently call workers stupid or fat, and he spread rumors about a junior staffer’s sexual promiscuity and a former executive’s drug abuse, said ex-employees, who witnessed or were subjects of the insults but asked not to be identified for fear of retribution. The CEO allegedly kept a close eye on which employees ...

The green light 5.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The dwindling green cover in Bengaluru has been a source of concern for citizens for sometime now. Trees are increasingly being uprooted for commercial purposes while many parks in the city are in a bad condition. However, with an increased allotment for the green cover in the state budget — Rs 1,397 crore for development of BBMP parks and trees — citizens hope that the city will regain its green cover soon. Environmentalist Leo Saldanha says that whatever be the budget, effective management of parks is a must. "Civic amenities including parks have to be provided to the public according to The National Building Code of India. One can see proper parks in old neighbourhoods while the newer localities concentrate on just the financial aspects of land," he adds. Akshatha Pournami Agastya, an environmental science student, says that apart from planting saplings in the city, proper care should be taken of plants that are already there. "One should avoid sticking or nailing posters on trees.When it ...

Follow Act while felling trees, forum tells BBMP 1.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Members of the Environment Support Group (ESG) have objected to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike's (BBMP) proposal to fell 112 trees for widening Jayamahal Road.

ESG members on February 27 asked Additional Chief Secretary (Urban Development) Mahendra Jain to ensure that tree felling is not allowed in any urban infrastructure project unless they are comprehensively approved under the Karnataka Town and Country Planning Act, 1961 (KTCPA).

ESG urged Jain to direct civic agencies to institute procedures to protect trees as directed by the Karnataka High Court.
