St Mark's square in Venice closed after floods 16.11.2019
Another exceptional high tide swamped flood-hit Venice on Friday, prompting the mayor to order St Mark's square closed after Italy declared a state of emergency for the UNESCO city. Mayor Luigi Brugnaro moved to shut the iconic square as the latest sea surge struck with strong storms and winds battering the region. It reached a high of 1.54 metres (five feet) just before midday, lower than Tuesday's peak but still dangerous. "I'm forced to close the square to avoid health risks for citizens... a disaster," Brugnaro said. In the afternoon the square reopened as water levels receded and forecasts anticipated lower levels in coming days. Churches, shops and homes in the city of canals have been inundated by unusually intense "acqua alta", or high water, which on Tuesday hit their highest level in half a century. "We've destroyed Venice, we're talking about one billion (euros) in damage and that's just from the other day, not today," Brugnaro said, as ...

Exploring ancient American Indian culture 16.11.2019
On a cold snowy day in December 1888, two cowboys herding their cattle in the woods at the rim of the Mesa Verde Canyon, were in for a surprise. As they emerged from the woods, they looked across the deep canyon and saw within the opposite rim, a stunning, incredulous sight that they later described as "a magnificent city". What they had seen were the ruins of a multistoried structure, built on the cliffs, under the natural ceiling of a deep oval alcove in the mountains. News of their "discovery" soon spread, and excavation of "Cliff Palace", as the site was named, was started. It was a similar sense of awe and excitement that we too felt as we stood atop the gigantic plateau and gazed across the deep canyon at the ruins of Cliff Palace on the opposite rim, when we visited Mesa Verde last summer. Mesa Verde, Spanish for "Green Table", is a Plateau in southwestern United States, falling within the State of Colorado. It is part of a series of magnificent ...

Unchecked use of antibiotics poses significant threat to freshwater ecosystem 15.11.2019
Washington: Residues from billions of doses of antibiotics, painkillers and antidepressants pose a significant risk to freshwater ecosystems and the global food chain, a new analysis said Thursday. There are growing fears that the unchecked use of antibiotics in both medicine and agriculture will have adverse effects on the environment and on human health. When animals and humans ingest medicines, up to 90 per cent of active ingredients are excreted back into the environment. Many medicines are simply discarded -- in the United States alone an estimated one-third of the four billion drugs prescribed each year end up as waste. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) compared data on concentrations of pharmaceutical residue in water samples worldwide as well as prescribing trends and water purification regulations in various countries. One study cited in its report estimates that 10 per cent of all pharmaceuticals are potentially harmful to the environment – including ...

TIRUCHY: The "Desiya Then Indhiya Nathigal Inaippu Vivasayeegal Sangam" has appealed to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K.

Ayyakannu said they have decided to meet the Chief Minister to submit a memorandum to him in this regard on November 18.

Battle baldness, naturally 15.11.2019
With the change in season, a lot of men, and women too, go through hair thinning, hair fall and slow growth issues. Interestingly, premature balding is the biggest fear among men and upcoming movies like Bala and Ujda Chaman highlight this subject with a twist of humour. However, it"s not too funny when men spend hours worrying about hair fall and have absolutely no clue how to salvage the situation. As ironic as it is, taking stress about losing hair is the biggest reason for hair loss! So, have faith and trust in your treatment for the best results and aim for the best lifestyle to not incur such problems, suggests Supriya Arora Malik, founder of Indulgeo Essentials. She says that one of the major reasons for male patterned baldness is the lifestyle — like irregular eating habits, stress, and smoking. "It"s only fair to say that until and unless you don"t control the problem at the baseline, you can"t control it otherwise," says Supriya and adds, "To ...
