Fazilka, August 18

Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) scientists have urged farmers not to burn paddy straw. Scientists have advised farmers to use paddy residue to prepare organic fertiliser to save the land and prevent air pollution.

PAU scientists, agriculture experts and farmers from Fazilka, Ferozepur, Muktsar and Faridkot districts participated in a seminar “Don’t burn paddy straw; save land” organised by Sampuran Agri Venture Pvt Ltd (SAVPL) here today.

Washington, August 18  A statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee was defaced at North Carolina’s Duke University and there were more arrests on Thursday over the toppling of a similar statue as communities in the US South faced a contentious debate over such divisive monuments. The discovery came as President Donald Trump stoked the controversy over the statues, echoing white nationalists by decrying the removal of what he said were “beautiful” monuments to the pro-slavery Confederacy. The statue of Lee at the Duke Chapel in Durham, North Carolina, was found early on Thursday with its nose and other facial features chipped off, the university said in a statement. Lee led the Confederate Army during the American Civil War. The university said that surveillance camera footage was being reviewed for clues as to who was behind the attack on the statue, which stands by the chapel entrance.

Kerala: Greens call for data bank on paddy land 19.8.2017
KOCHI: The Green activists will take up the inordinate delay in publishing the local-level data bank on paddy land as per the Kerala Conservation of Paddyland and Wetland Act. Though the preparation of databank within six months was one of the major election manifestos of the LDF, the government is yet to expedite the works initiated by the previous UDF government. The Green activists are apprehensive over the delay in publishing the databank which will result in massive conversion of paddyland.   "We will take up the issue with Agriculture Minister V. S. Sunil Kumar soon. It is unclear why the government is sitting on the proposal. It will take only five or six months to complete the preparation of the databank," said Dr. V.S. Vijayan, environmental expert. "There are hundreds of cases against illegal conversion of paddy land pending with the High Court. Once the data bank is published, the cases can be settled accordingly," he said. "College students or NGOs can ...
