Govt claim on visible progress false: IISc team 26.4.2017 deccanherald.com
While the officials from various civic agencies and Urban Development Department are making tall claims that visible progress is being made on the ground in clearing weeds and silt from Bellandur lake, a team of experts from Indian Institute of Science and Lake Expert Committee has claimed that this is just a gimmick. Prof T V Ramachandra of IISc's Centre for Ecological Sciences, who is also a member of the committee, said, "I visited the site with my students and found that what they claimed and what is on ground are two different things. They are removing the silt from Yemalur side where there is thick vegetation. "They should have started working from Iblur side where the weeds are fresh. Getting into water and cleaning the water body will be faster and easier. This will also show people that work is happening on the ground. Going by the present way the government is working, it will take one year to clear the weeds." He said the government officials should take the help of the local fishermen and ...

Putting holidays to good use 26.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
With summer holidays in full swing, the city is seeing innumerable summer camps and workshops for children. There are, however, a few students who are doing their own thing, carving their own paths and making the best use of the break to get experiences that are also immensely educational and give them work experience beyond the classroom. Eleventh grader Karun Divij Balachandar, for instance, plans to apply to medical schools in the UK and Malaysia after he finishes twelfth grade. During summer, Karun has picked an interesting way to utilise his time. He is shadowing doctors at a hospital in Bengaluru. Job-shadowing is a way of getting experience in a particular field by following a professional at his or her workplace. In the hospital, Karun works in different departments to understand what doctors do and the emergency medical procedures or diagnoses that they carry out, and real-life scenarios that cannot be replicated so easily in the classroom. The experience, he says, is invaluable and adds to ...

Without funds to buy even essentials like chalk and paper, principals and teachers struggle to keep Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) primary and high schools running. The incharge headmistress of a BBMP Primary School in Tasker Town said the contingency amount for stationery, annual day cultural events and general upkeep of the school has not been released in two years. "They have not given us money to buy floor cleaner, chalk or even paper, yet when they come for inspection, officials expect the classrooms to be neat and tidy." Teachers did not want children to miss out on the annual day celebration because of lack of funds, so they pitched in to organise cultural activities and snacks for them, the headmistress said. No funds "We don't have funds to even buy paper to conduct examinations. We get around Rs 12,000 a year from the state government under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) and we try to manage with that. We did not have an annual day celebration this year because we couldn't afford it," ...

Krishna Tanmeerbavi, a sixteen-year-old aspiring astrophysicist, was one of the several excited students along with parents who had gathered at the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium in the city to witness the rare 'Zero Shadow Moment'. The zero shadow moment can be described as the time when there is no shadow as the sun is exactly at the zenith. The zero shadow moment was demonstrated at 12.16 pm at the planetarium by Madan K, a student who recorded the phenomenon. "I began documenting the decreasing shadow of the pole at 11.37 pm . At that time, the length of the pole's shadow was 16.2 cm which reduced to 10.4 cm at 11.52 and at 12.04 it was recorded at 5.5 cm. It was at 12.16 that there was no shadow," Madan said. Explaining the occurrence, he said, "This phenomenon can be felt only in the regions that lie between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer. The shadow at noon can be zero on only two specific days in a year in these regions." "On June 22, the sun will be at the northernmost point ...
