Human influence responsible for the extinction of one million species 24.4.2019
Washington: Up to one million species face extinction due to human influence, according to a draft UN report obtained by AFP that painstakingly catalogues how humanity has undermined the natural resources upon which its very survival depends. The accelerating loss of clean air, drinkable water, CO2-absorbing forests, pollinating insects, protein-rich fish and storm-blocking mangroves – to name but a few of the dwindling services rendered by Nature, poses no less of a threat than climate change, says the report, set to be unveiled May 6. Indeed, biodiversity loss and global warming are closely linked, according to the 44-page Summary for Policy Makers, which distills a 1,800-page UN assessment of scientific literature on the state of Nature. Delegates from 130 nations meeting in Paris from April 29 will vet the executive summary line-by-line. Wording may change, but figures lifted from the underlying report cannot be altered. "We need to recognise that climate change and loss of Nature are ...

Children's book puts focus on manual scavenging 24.4.2019
Chennai: Ahead of World Book Day, on Monday, there was no dearth of energy in the auditorium of the Goethe Institut Max Mueller Bhavan in Chennai. School goers were brimming with willpower to put an end to a social menace as they threw some pertinent questions at author C.G. Salamander and co-author cum illustrator Samidha Gunjal at the launch of their book Puu, a book bringing into public discourse, the practice of manual scavenging and caste-based discrimination. Manual scavenging and the threats, hazards and stigma attached to it need complete eradication. The creators envisioned putting across the complex topic through a children"s book. Salamander and Samidha had an experiment to execute: the illustrations are such that what meets the eye and the message they want you to conceive are in stark contrast. Visuals are believed to make internalization easy, but this book has a twist. The duo give an instance. The word Puu in English denotes excreta and in Tamil, flowers. In the book, a picture of ...

PM Modi unleashes false campaign against state: Pinarayi Vijayan 20.4.2019
Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan dared Prime Minster Narendra Modi to show a single case which was registered against any person for uttering the name of God. In a statement here, Pinarayi said cases were registered in Kerala but none of those was related to invoking God's name. "Only those who unleashed violence misusing religion were booked. Such criminals may be going scot-free in BJP- ruled states. But in Kerala, they will face strict action," he said. Earlier, he had made similar remarks outside Kerala.
