Gated communities go for rationing of water 19.6.2019
Chennai: With water crisis hitting every part of the city, several gated communities/apartments in the city, probably for the first time, have resorted to rationing of water.  As a resident of one of the gated communities on 200 Feet Radial Road, Pallikaranai, it has been quite challenging to handle this (water) stress for the last one month.   Several factors drove the gated communities to take this hard decision of rationing. Firstly, most of the high-rises are not able to monitor the water consumption of an individual flat due to  complicated piping network. So reducing the consumption in every flat has become impossible.   Secondly, borewells in apartments, which lent a helping hand until a month ago, have almost dried up. Private water lorries, unable to source water from their regular wells now, ply to far off places to get water. As a ripple effect, they either don't supply their scheduled water loads or demand exorbitant rates. Lastly, a significant amount of water is ...

Squids has the capacity to adapt to environmental changes 18.6.2019
Washington: While climate change and increasing pollution continues to haunt human beings, squids have nothing to worry about. According to a recent study, squids will survive and may even flourish under even the worst-case ocean acidification scenarios. According to the research team, squids live on the edge of their environmental oxygen limitations due to their energy-taxing swimming technique. "Their blood is highly sensitive to changes in acidity, so we expected that future ocean acidification would negatively affect their aerobic performance," said Blake Spady, lead researcher of the study published in the Journal of Conservation Physiology. Researchers suggested that atmospheric CO2 concentrations have increased from 280 parts per million (ppm) before the industrial revolution to more than 400 ppm today. Scientists project atmospheric CO2--and by extension CO2in the oceans--may exceed 900 ppm by the end of this century unless current CO2 emissions are curtailed. But when the team tested ...

Paris: The Notre-Dame Cathedral will host its first mass on Saturday, exactly two months after the devastating blaze that caused its famous spire to collapse. The Archdiocese of Paris told CNN that access to the event will be extremely limited due to safety concerns with just 20 to 30 people expected to attend the mass.

The mass will be led by Michel Aupetit, the Archbishop of Paris, who said in a statement, "May all those who have mobilized since April 15 and all those who continue to work every day for Notre Dame, be they donors, architects, construction workers, political leaders, be warmly ...
