Bengaluru: After spending Rs 5 crore, lake gets overrun by plastic 21.8.2019
Bengaluru: After spending more than Rs 5 cr on rejuvenating the nine-acre Halagevaderahalli lake in Rajarajeshwarinagar three years ago, the water body is now contaminated with plastic and release of sewage from the nearby apartments. The lake was in good condition until last year. United Conservation Movement has lambasted the authorities for neglecting the lake and demanded that the Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka should take the issue as a sou moto case. "The authorities have failed to protect the lake. Either, they should have put up a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) or have diverted the sewage. After spending so much they could not maintain the lakes," said Joseph Hoover, a member of United Conservation Movement. On August 14, the High Court of Karnataka had directed the state government and the BBMP to bring out a scheme to either restore the 19 disappeared lakes, including the ones used for forming layouts by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), or create artificial lakes.

Art conservationists restore rare painting on slavery 20.8.2019
London: Ahead of the annual Remembrance Day for the abolition of the slave trade, art conservationists are working to restore a rare painting of a kneeling African slave to go on display in the British port city of Liverpool. Acquired by the International Slavery Museum in 2018, the "Am Not I A Man And A Brother" painting depicts an enslaved African, kneeling, bound in chains and looking to the sky. It is based on a design commissioned by the Committee for the Abolition of the Slave Trade in 1787 and was used by the potter Josiah Wedgwood to campaign against slavery, making it one of the first instances of a logo used for a political cause. "We"ve done quite significant conservation on the painting," Laura Pye, director of National Museums Liverpool, told Reuters. "(The) conservation team has done an incredible job of cleaning it up. So I don"t think there"s anyone that"s seen the painting as it currently looks." August 23 is the International ...
