Mobile apps to cut delays, send out disaster alerts 20.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The authorities are banking on mobile apps, now in the making, to send out alerts ahead of extreme natural events. DH reported on Sunday how the city had no system in place to alert citizens when a natural disaster is imminent. The downpour in Bengaluru on Tuesday made it the wettest day in 127 years. It was also the highest for August since 1890. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Cell and the India Meteorological Department (IMD) are convinced apps can help them reach citizens directly. "We have tied up with engineering students from M S Ramaiah College to develop an app to give real-time alerts," said G S Srinivas Reddy, director, KSNDMC. Work began three months ago. It will take three more months to complete the development. Testing will call for more time, he told DH. Under the present system, alerts go to decision makers and not to people living in danger zones. The arrangement is bureaucratic, Reddy admitted, adding that people could register ...

Citizens at the interactive session came out with many workable solutions to reduce traffic problems. Citizens asked the police to address students at colleges regularly to create awareness about consequences of wheelie and reckless riding. Some suggested having drunk driving checks points right in front of pubs and bars so that road users don't dare to commit the offence. Prakash, a participant, said: "Ban all penalties for overspeeding. Keep offenders in police custody for five hours. Offenders will learn a lesson and never dare to speed." Arthur Solomon, a resident of Hanumanthnagar, made a workable suggestion. "Make it mandatory for IT professionals to travel by a public transport once a week."

This one's for the young ones 19.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The wish of a 10-year-old aspiring magician to watch a fantasy film on the day of release clashes with her mother's work commitment in the film Little Magician, directed by Neha Sharma. And, as a city-bred boy travels to his ancestral village in Odisha, he witnesses developments that cut through the heart of a natural resource in the film The Waterfall, directed by Lipika Singh Darai.
