Proposal to restrict entry of vehicles to Cubbon Park 23.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Taking note of increased movement of vehicles at Cubbon Park, the Horticulture Department has chalked out a proposal to restrict the vehicles at some entry points to the park.

At present, the vehicles have access to the park from a total of seven sides. If the departments proposal is approved, then the movement of vehicles will be banned at Hudson Circle, Bal Bhavan and K R Market.

"There is dense traffic movement from Karnataka High Court towards UB City and from UB City to MS Building. However, it is difficult to find an alternative if these two routes are closed to traffic," a department official said.

The officials said that the vehicular pollution increased in the last three months due to Nrupatunga Road development works undertaken by BBMP. Some birds have died due to increase in pollution level, they added.

Department commissioner P C Ray said the final decision in this regard will be taken by the Police Department.

Fruit juice not safe for infants Fruit juice offers no nutritional benefit to children under the age of one and may contribute to excessive weight gain, say experts who recommend not including juices in the diet of infants. The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a new policy marking the first change in recommendations on fruit juice since 2001. The revision accounts for the rising rates of obesity and concerns about dental health based on data accumulated over recent years. "Parents may perceive fruit juice as healthy, but it is not a good substitute for fresh fruit and just packs in more sugar and calories," said Melvin B Heyman. The recommendations state that 100% fresh or reconstituted fruit juice can be a healthy part of the diet of children older than one year when consumed as part of a well- balanced diet. Researchers recommend that intake of juice should be limited to, at most, four ounces daily for toddlers age one-three. For children aged four to six, fruit juice should be restricted to four ...

Scientists turn polluted air into auto fuel 16.5.2017 DNA: Money
There are a number of huge challenges facing the global auto industry, but two of the biggest are reducing pollution and developing replacements for fossil fuel-powered vehicles for a more sustainable future. It has to be said it's early days yet, but some scientists in Belgium have come up with a way of potentially killing both of these incredibly difficult birds with one stone. Scientists from the University of Antwerp and KU Leuven (University of Leuven) in Belgium have developed a device that uses light and a special catalyst to clean polluted air, but at the same time produces hydrogen that can then be used to power hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The device utilizes a process called, "heterogeneous photocatalysis," which has been used previously to siphon hydrogen from water and nullify gas-based pollutants. However, it's rarely been used to do both at once, but the team now appears to have managed it thanks to what's called a "photoelectrochemical cell," which makes use of solar cells to produce ...
