'I want a future': Global youth protests urge climate action 21.9.2019
New York: Young people afraid for their futures protested around the globe Friday to implore leaders to tackle climate change, turning out by the hundreds of thousands to insist that the warming world can"t wait any longer. Marches, rallies and demonstrations were held from Canberra to Kabul and Cape Town to New York. More than 100,000 turned out in Berlin. Days before a UN climate summit of world leaders, the "Global Climate Strike" events were as small as two dozen activists in Seoul using LED flashlights to send Morse code messages and as large as mass demonstrations in Australia that organizers estimated were the country"s largest since the Iraq War began in 2003.

Rains bring Hyderabad to a standstill 20.9.2019
Hyderabad: The city was hit by another spell of copious rains, which disrupted normal flow of life, and brought traffic to a standstill. Water was found flooding different parts of the city, low-lying areas and stagnated on the roads. The rains have left behind water puddles all over. At the ends and sides of roads, below and at the mouths of flyovers, standing water reduced the city to a partially flooded metro in despair. One of the major reasons for stagnation of water in different places was the slopes and gradients in road levels, and engineering flaws, which were not allowing for a natural or smooth flow of water into the drains at Begumpet, Necklace Road and the metro rail corridors. This was seen leading to an overflowing of drains in some parts of the city and caused very slow movement of traffic in the city. A woman walks through water in Malakpet. (Photo: DC) The highest rainfall recorded on Thursday was at Malakpet (37 mm), Saroornagar (26.5 mm), Jubliee Hills (22.5 mm) and other parts of the ...

KOZHIKODE: Kozhikode Collector Seeram Sambasiva Rao has urged residents of both banks of Kuttiyadi River to be on alert as two shutters of the Kakkayam Dam are all set to be lifted by one 'feet' each on Thursday.

The catchment area of the dam was getting copious rains in the last two days, necessitating the release of water to keep it within safety limits, a press release said.

Meanwhile, the Banasura Sagar Dam executive engineer has warned families living on the two banks of River Kadamanthodu at the lower reaches of the dam against flooding as one shutter of the dam was lifted on Wednesday afternoon to bring down water to 775 metres from the current level of 775.05 metres.

The water level of the river will be up by 10 to 15 cm with an intense flow. Any attempt to step into the water may invite mishap, the executive engineer said.

Rains spew all Hyderabad's garbage back 19.9.2019
Hyderabad: Heavy rains on Tuesday night have led to silt from the sewage drains to overflow on the roads in the Sainkpuri, Kapra, Yapral, Old Alwal, Malkagiri residential colonies as the drains were filled with plastic, glass bottles, paper, tea cups, condoms, sanitary pads, diapers and other waste dumped in them. The drains are clogged as they are open at many places and these in turn lead to them getting converted into open garbage points. A senior officer in Malkajgiri circle explained, "This is a regular problem as even if we clean them in the morning, by evening they are full again. The problem is that people are throwing stuff from moving cars at night, dumping near garbage bins which are then being strewn around by dogs and also there are apartments which are connecting to the main sewage line instead of having their own septic tank." Since the time the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation stopped the cleaning of septic tanks, apartments and individual homes have connected their ...
