Japan hikes volcanic warning level, prepares to evacuate Kuchinoerabujima island 15.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
Japan hiked the volcanic warning level on one southern island to the second highest on Wednesday, mandating that residents should prepare for evacuation, though an actual eruption at the peak had yet to be detected. Japan's Meteorological Agency said that volcanic earthquakes and sulfur emissions had increased at a peak on Kuchinoerabujima island, located roughly 1,000 km (621 miles) southwest of Tokyo, and raised its warning level to 4 out of 5. The mountain erupted explosively three years ago, sending ash and smoke thousands of metres into the sky and releasing potentially deadly pyroclastic flows, flows of super-heated ash and gas, that reached the sea. At that time, the island's entire population evacuated but eventually returned. Some 100 people live there at present. Japan has 110 active volcanoes and monitors 47 constantly. When 63 people were killed in the volcanic eruption of Mount Ontake in September 2014, it was the country's worst such toll for nearly 90 years. In January, a member of Japan's ...

Still not Swachh Bharat: Red Fort ground strewn with trash post Independence Day event 15.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
A number of plastic water bottles and banana peels lay scattered on the grounds of the Red Fort after Prime Minister Narendra Modi 's Independence Day address , despite the government's emphasis on the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Minutes after the event ended, heaps of plastic water bottles could be seen in various enclosures where children and the public were seated, indicating a lack of arrangement for garbage disposal in the 17th century Mughal monument. A few cartons were used as makeshift dustbins which eventually overflowed, forcing school children to throw garbage on the grounds. "Surprisingly, there was no arrangement of dustbins for disposing off water bottles and other trash at such an important event even when the prime minister had been stressing on cleanliness and hygiene," said Namita Srivastava, a teacher who accompanied students for the event. "The entire area looked like a dump yard. I simply fail to understand why they did not make some arrangement for disposal of trash," said another ...

Emraan Hashmi: A decade ago, 'Cheat India' would have been dismissed by the industry 15.8.2018 DNA: Top News
Ever since ‘ Cheat India ’ was announced, there has been much curiosity about the film. Also because Emraan Hashmi , who is also debuting as a producer (with T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment), has not been seen in a film which is as stark and real as ‘Cheat India’ and in a raw, Indian heartland milieu. Says Emraan, “A decade ago, films like Cheat India would have been dismissed by the industry as being ahead of their time, but today with the changing language of cinema and the changing audience, I can experiment.” He adds, “We read so much daily about the scams that plague our education system: SSC and HSC paper leaks, CBSE re-examination, Vyaapam, etc. The whole concept of buying your way through education, jobs and earnings is disturbing. It is important for people to understand the vulnerability of hardworking and gifted students who get left out. Though our education system has evolved over the decades, the malpractices exist. The fact that we judge students on the basis of their report cards has ...
