Bengaluru: Natives of Hussainpura village of Pavagada taluk in Tumakuru district no longer need to cross the Andhra Pradesh border daily to fetch drinking water. They also need not travel 38 kilometres through forest areas to the nearest hospital for any medical emergency, after a Primary Health Centre was set up within the remote village itself. All this happened thanks to "Operation Blue Water," a social initiative led by Rahul Prasad, a city youngster and social activist who converged passion and practical knowledge he attained at college to better hundreds of lives at the village. He is now training villagers to be self-sustainable and self-helping. In a chat with Deccan Chronicle Rahul said, "The geometric placement of the village at the remote Karnataka-Andhra border had been the major hindrance towards any welfare activity in the village for the past ten to fifteen years. Taking people into confidence and making them aware of the fact that they need to change towards better was a ...

Now, you can help map global mosquito distribution 1.11.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Indian-origin scientists at Stanford are encouraging people from across the world to record the annoying high-pitched whine of mosquitoes using their cellphones, in a bid to produce the most detailed global map of the disease-causing insects. Mosquitoes can carry deadly diseases, including malaria, yellow fever, dengue, West Nile virus, chikungunya and Zika. Diseases spread by mosquitoes result in millions of deaths each year and the burden of their effects is carried most strongly by places with the fewest resources. The Prakash Lab at Stanford University in the US, led by assistant professor Manu Prakash, is looking for citizen scientists to contribute to Abuzz, a mosquito monitoring platform. "We could enable the world's largest network of mosquito surveillance - just purely using tools that almost everyone around the world now is carrying in their pocket," said Prakash.  "There are very limited resources available for vector surveillance and control and it is extremely important to understand how you ...
