Kangra a walkover for BJP 19.12.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Dharamsala, December 18 Kangra has pulled off the role of a kingmaker very well this time too. The district's 11 of 15 seats went to the BJP, while the Congress could pocket only three seats. An Independent has also managed to get a seat. The Congress had won 10 Assembly segments in the district in the last elections. Kangra district that has 15 segments has kept its tradition of going against the establishment since 1977 when the BJP emerged as a political alternative to the Congress in the state. Among the losers are Transport Minister GS Bali and Minister for Urban Development Sudhir Sharma. Bali was defeated by his friend-turned-foe Arun Mehra, who joined the BJP this time.

Indian scientists use waste onion skins to develop green electricity 18.12.2017
Scientists at IIT Kharagpur have used waste onion skins to develop an inexpensive device that can generate green electricity from body movements, and may power pacemakers, smart pills and wearable electronics. The non-toxic, biodegradable and biocompatible device takes advantage of the suitable piezoelectric properties of the onion skin, researchers said. Piezoelectric materials have the ability to convert energy from everyday mechanical motions into electricity. "This homespun inexpensive innovative finding can be a breakthrough scientific research in new direction; even common people can generate energy in any circumstances using this simple novel cost-effective idea," Bhanu Bhusan Khatua, professor at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur in West Bengal, told PTI. Increasing population, industrialisation, and ubiquitous use of electronics and vehicles are playing a huge role in destroying the environment day by day.

Needless to say, women commuters were very impressed. The new local, which was launched at 8.01 am this morning The train, manufactured by a Canada-based transportation company, offers more legroom, better ventilation, comfortable seats and brighter interiors. “It is better than the regular trains that we travel in daily. I noticed that the door lock is sturdier. We need safe door locks as passengers can risk falling off if the locks suddenly get loose,” said Chitra Kotian, 25, a resident of Dombivli. A few passengers, however, complained that the design was still not on par with those being run on the WR route. The ...
