Political parties in Meghalaya gear up for Feb 27 elections 18.1.2018 General News
Political parties in Meghalaya are gearing up for the February 27 assembly polls, the schedule for which was announced by the Election Commission today. The term of the present House expires on March 6. The ruling Congress that currently has 23 MLAs in the 60-member assembly said they are ready to battle it out keeping the interest of the common people in mind. "We welcome the decision of the Election Commission. The Congress will be voted to power again as it is the only party that can provide a pro-people government," he said. The Congress had recently faced a major setback when five of its MLAs resigned from the assembly and joined the NPP and two other legislators moved to the BJP and the newly formed People's Democratic Front. The regional parties - UDP, HSPDP and the NPP - are of the view that "a wind of change" is blowing in the state. Leader of Opposition and United Democratic Party president Donkupar Roy said the people of Meghalaya will vote for the regional ...

Brainchild of engg students, this windmill produces power from speeding vehicles 16.1.2018 deccanherald.com
Four engineering students at a city college have come up with a cheaper means of producing power from moving highway vehicles. Besides keeping the streetlights on, the vertical turbine, they believe, would help keep the traffic lights and signboards on. Designed by the final-year mechanical engineering students at Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering (SVCE), the turbine would generate power using the high-energy wind whipped up by the speeding cars and busses. "The turbine has been designed in such a way that it rotates even in a low wind speed," Prof Sridhar Deshpande, who guided Rahul B, Prathik S, Sampath B, and Prashanth D to create the power generator, told DH. "Our highways have a speed limit of 80 km/hr, which is enough to give a thrust to the turbine. The power it generates is adequate to keep the LED streetlights on throughout the night." As roads and flyovers have high wind movement, the turbine can generate adequate power to even keep the lights on in nearby villages and buildings, the ...
