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.

Mumbai: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday alleged that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) are vulnerable to "hacking and programming errors", and urged the Election Commission (EC) to check all polling machines after elections.
