ANANTAPUR: Anantapur Municipal Corporation authorities have been still unable to supply purified drinking water to people of Anantapur, but are justifying that  the muddy water will not harm the people. Even as Anantapur has adequate drinking water allocation through the Tungabhadra high level main canal and Penna Ahobilum balancing reservoir storage point and separate storage point along with necessary systems to purify water at Muddalapuram in Kudair mandal. The purified drinking water is being supplied through a separate pipeline by filling nearby tanks in various localities. In Rayalaseema, only the AMC has a drinking water facility throughout the year but the situation appears worse this season due to lack of proper measures by the civic authorities.

Khammam: Report blames tahsildars for mess in land record purification 7.9.2019
Khammam: The tahsildars of different mandals are being faulted for the mess in issuing pattadar passbooks. Instead of checking the irregularities resorted to by village revenue officers in changing survey numbers, many of the tahsildars connived with them. The government in its report says that tahsildars made a mess of the land records purification programme due to their nonchalant attitude. Tahsildars were given all powers pertaining to the records of land rights and they entrusted the job to the village revenue officers, who did the job according to their whims. Interestingly, the tahsildars made the people suffer by going by the advice of the VROs. "The government is angry on land issues because of tahsildars as well as the VROs and has decided to change the revenue act," said an official working in the revenue department. According to one estimate, nearly Rs 200 crore has been lost because of corruption  in Khammam and Bhadradri districts during the land records purification. Some ...

Kerala govt seeks CBI probe into Titanium scandal 4.9.2019
Thiruvananthapuram: The state government on Tuesday decided to entrust the probe into the Titanium corruption scandal with the the CBI. The accused in the case include former chief minister Oommen Chandy, Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala and former PWD minister V.K. Ibrahim Kunju. The case relates to the alleged loss of Rs 200 crore in connection with the setting up of a waste water treatment plant in the company. The Pollution Abat-ement Project at Trava-ncore Titanium Plant Limited (TTPL) in Thiruvananthapuram was taken up when Oommen Chandy was the chief minister during 2004-2005. The plant was sanctioned by the then UDF government following the directives of the Supreme Court and the High Court to set up a system to check the heavy acid pollution in the area. The LDF government later stopped the project after the implementing agency, Mecon India Limited, a public sector company, approached the government in 2007 saying that the project cost had risen to Rs 414 crore. It was then that the then LDF ...

Consumption of fluoridated tap water during pregnancy can lower IQ score in infants 20.8.2019
Washington: A study published Monday linked consumption of fluoridated tap water during pregnancy to lower IQ scores in infants, a finding at odds with decades of public health messaging extolling the mineral's benefits in reducing cavities. Several outside experts expressed concern over the research's methodology and questioned its conclusions, though some found the results compelling enough to merit further investigation. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) named community water fluoridation one of ten great public health achievements of the 20th century because of its contribution to the steep decline in tooth cavities in the United States over several decades. But although high levels of fluoride have been found to be toxic to rat brains, the concentrations seen in fluoridated tap water are deemed safe. "We realised that there were major questions about the safety of fluoride, especially for pregnant women and young children," Christine Till, an associate ...

EC wants legal backing to seek Aadhaar numbers to clean up voters list 18.8.2019
New Delhi: The Election Commission has asked the government to give it statutory backing to collect Aadhaar numbers of new applicants and existing voters to check multiple entries in electoral rolls. In a letter to the Law Ministry, the commission has proposed that provisions of the Representation of the People Act be amended to allow the EC to seek Aadhaar numbers of those applying to be voters and those who are already part of voters list. According to the EC proposal sent earlier this month, the electoral law should be amended to empower electoral registration officer to seek Aadhaar numbers of the existing voters as well as of those applying to the voters'' list. In August 2015, a Supreme Court order on Aadhaar card has put brakes on the Election Commission's project to link Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) (Aadhaar) numbers with voters' electoral data to check multiple entries in electoral rolls. The poll panel was then collecting Aadhaar numbers as part of its ...

3 pound oyster caught in western France 9.8.2019
For a food festival that takes place in western France every year, oyster farmers put together a seafood feast of the freshest produce from the sea. "I was working in the channel and walking along I felt something with my foot," said Mathieu Naslin, an employee of the Viviers de la Guittiere oyster farm. "I picked it up and it was a huge oyster," he told AFP. Another massive oyster was found at a farm close by, in the Sables d'Olonne area. It weighed 1.4 kgs and was found in April. "It's extremely rare," said Naslin. He said that in his eight years on the job, he had seen nothing like it, reported NDTV. There are no doubt such bigger or even bigger oysters out there. The salinity level of the water body determines the size of the oysters. The salinity occasionally drops as a nearby lake usually dumps water into the channel. That throws off the levels of salt thus restricting the growth of the oysters. The oyster, which was nicknamed "Georgette" in honour ...

Fluoride in drinking water can cause potential liver damage 9.8.2019
Washington: Fluoride exposure may lead to a reduction in kidney and liver function in adolescents, suggests a study. The study published in the journal 'Environment International' by Mount Sinai researchers examined the relationship between fluoride levels in drinking water and blood with kidney and liver health among adolescents. The findings showed that exposure to fluoride may contribute to complex changes in kidney and liver function among youth in the United States, where 74 per cent of public water systems add fluoride for dental health benefits. The findings also suggest that adolescents with poorer kidney or liver function may absorb more fluoride in their bodies. While fluoride exposure in animals and adults has been associated with kidney and liver toxicity, this study examined the potential effects of chronic low-level exposure among youth. This is important to study because a child's body excretes only 45 per cent of fluoride in urine via the kidneys, while an adult's body ...
