Refer to new data for Coastal Regulation Zone maps: Gujarat activist 8.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
While attending an environmental public hearing with affected villagers, in Dholera on deciding on the mapping for Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notification, state activists have said that Gujarat's mapping is based on old data and is severely flawed. The mapping is done to decide which region falls under what category as per the notification. The category under which an area falls decides what sort of economic activities will be allowed there. Rohit Prajapati of Paryavaran Suraksha Samiti said that during the hearing, it was brought to the officials' notice that they were trying to get the mapping done on the basis of 2011 data. "The problem with deciding on the basis of old data is that a lot of changes happen on the ground and this will not be reflected. We have sought that the maps be made on the basis of 2018 data," said Prajapati. Giving an example of why old data will not work he said that Mandvipura village is one such village that has been gobbled up by the sea. "Now if the map was to be made ...

Briton who was part of rescue team that rescued Thai boys may take legal action against Elon Musk for calling him 'Pedo' 16.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
One of the cavers, who was part of the rescue team that pulled out 12 boys from a cave in Thailand is considering taking legal action against Tesla boss Elon Musk after the entrepreneur called him a ‘pedo’ on social media. Pedo is short for paedophile.  Musk had launched the Twitter rant against Briton Vernon Unsworth after the cave expert slammed his offer of a miniature submarine to extract the footballers from the Tham Luang cave as a "PR stunt". Last week, a group of 12 football players and their coach were rescued by an international team of divers through a narrow network of twisting, flooded tunnels. According to Unsworth, who provided mapping knowledge of the cave to rescuers, said Musk's prototype would have had ‘absolutely no chance of working’. “He can stick the submarine where it hurts,” Unsworth had said in an interview. Musk responded Sunday in a bizarre series of tweets referring to Unsworth, without using his name, as "pedo guy". The tweets, however, were deleted later. The entrepreneur ...
