Report blames rats for flyover wall collapse 19.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Ludhiana, June 18 About a month after the collapse of retaining wall under the Gill Chowk flyover, the inquiry report by the four-member committee has blamed rats for the damage.

The inquiry has been conducted by the committee comprising ADC (Development) Shena Aggarwal, MC Executive Engineer Rahul Gagneja, PWD Executive Engineer Rakesh Garg and GLADA Executive Engineer Ranbir Singh.

Mount Everest turns into world’s highest rubbish dump 18.6.2018 The Tribune
Kathmandu, June 17  Decades of commercial mountaineering have turned Mount Everest into the world’s highest rubbish dump as an increasing number of big-spending climbers pay little attention to the ugly footprint they leave behind en route the summit of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) peak. “It is disgusting, an eyesore,” Pemba Dorje Sherpa, who has summited Everest 18 times, told AFP. “The mountain is carrying tonnes of waste.” As the number of climbers on the mountain has soared — at least 600 people have scaled the world’s highest peak so far this year alone — the problem has worsened. Melting glaciers caused by global warming are exposing trash that has accumulated on the mountain since Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first successful summit 65 years ago. Pemba shrugs that many just don’t care. Compounding the problem, some officials accept small bribes to turn a blind eye, he said. “There is just not enough monitoring at the high camps to ensure the mountain stays clean,” he said. The ...
