Prada launches Re-nylon bags made from recycled ocean waste 25.6.2019
Prada introduced its first backpack made from Pocono nylon in 1984. It was introduced by Muiccia Prada, a few years after she took over the helm of her family business. They were then made using an industrial fabric used to make parachutes. It went against everything that was considered as luxury at that time, but it still became revolutionary due to its unsexiness. In an era where Versace and Gucci was making in-roads in the luxury market with high gloss and power shoulders, Prada"s nylon bag made a statement. "I was searching," Prada told Vogue, "because I hated all the bags that were around. They were so formal, so lady, so traditional, so classic." Decades after it was first launched, Prada"s signature nylon bag makes reappearances on the runway every season, and uses over 7,00,000 metres of nylon annually. A non-biodegradable, plastic-based fabric, it is quite harmful to the environment as it adds more plastic to the earth. In keeping up with the current climate, the ...

Southern dts farmers hope for Kerala's nod to river linking project 25.6.2019
Tirunelveli: While Kerala's magnanimity in voluntarily coming forward to send  20 lakh litres of water to Tamil Nadu, has been hailed by the opposition parties, the farming community in the water-starved southern districts of Tirunelveli, Thoothukudi and Virudhunagar want political parties in the state to persuade the Kerala government to give its consent to the Achankoil-Pamba-Vaippar river linking project so that around 90,000 acres of dry land in the drought-hit regions in three southern districts of Tamil Nadu benefit. According to Varadarajan, a farmer from the Kovilpatti region, the river linking project , conceptualized in the early 1960s' was aimed to get inflows into water-starved Vaippar river flowing through the taluks of Sivagiri, Sankarankoil, Kovilpatti, Sattur, Virudhunagar and Vilathikulam by diverting surplus water from the west-flowing rivers of Achankoil and Pamba in Kerala.

After FATF relief, keep up the pressure on Pak 25.6.2019
In escaping being blacklisted by the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force (FATF), Pakistan may have dodged a bullet, but with the next plenary in October, and final scrutiny to begin in three months, Pakistan is running out of time. Or is it? Has India factored in the enormity of the task before it? Can it, in this limited time, convince the world"s major powers that Pakistan, despite making all the right noises on cutting terror funding, hasn"t actually turned off the tap? The madrasas and training camps continue to function, with only the nomenclature being changed. At the recent FATF meeting in Orlando, Florida, Pakistan managed to win over not just China and Turkey, that are already in its corner, but Malaysia too, getting the backing of a minimum three countries to beat being put on the blacklist. It"s now seeking the support of 15 more in the 36-member body, including Russia, in a bid to be removed from the grey list it is currently on. The Pakistan foreign minister"s ...

Congress may claim Kerala Congress (M) seats 25.6.2019
KOTTAYAM: The split has reduced the bargaining power of the Kerala Congress (M) in the UDF, and the Congress party might now stake a claim for some of its seats like Ettumanoor and Poonjar. In Ettumanoor seat, KCM leader Thomas Chazhikadan had lost two times consecutively, and in Poonjar, where sitting MLA P.C. George is facing the wrath of his traditional voters after romancing the BJP, and the KCM candidates performed miserably last time, Congress smells a chance.
