Thanjavur: Farmers of Cauvery delta expect a change in the approach of BJP government at the centre, particularly from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, elected by people for the second term, with respect to environment issues that threaten the food security stratus of the delta.

Amazon facial recognition ban won just 2 per cent of shareholder vote 25.5.2019
Amazon.com Inc shareholders overwhelmingly rejected a proposal that the company stop selling facial recognition technology to government agencies, while a resolution to audit the service drew more support, a regulatory filing on Friday showed. Some 2.4 per cent of votes were in favour of the ban. A second proposal that called for a study of the extent to which Amazon"s "Rekognition" service harmed civil rights and privacy garnered 27.5 per cent support.

Amazon has defended its work and said all users must follow the law.

Trade with Japan not as big a problem for Donald Trump as China 25.5.2019
Washington: When President Donald Trump visits Japan, he"ll be able to point to Tokyo"s streets to drive home a sore point in trade relations between the allies: the absence of made-in-USA vehicles. The USD 70 billion Japanese trade surplus with the US is dwarfed by China"s USD 379 billion surplus, and the trade tensions between Washington and Tokyo are far less contentious than the tariffs war with Beijing. But the disputes between Japan and the US are longstanding and also intractable: the bilateral agreement with Tokyo that Trump has been seeking since pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement two years ago is still far down the road, say analysts and politicians on both sides. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has carefully courted Trump since before he took office and their cordial, golfing-buddy relationship has helped keep relations on an even keel. While Trump has complained repeatedly about the trade imbalance, especially in autos and auto parts _ the Hondas and ...

Floating hospitals to the rescue in climate change hit Bangladesh 24.5.2019
The "chars" or islands of Bangladesh have been victims of climate change. They are constantly changing their shape and form due to eroding. This process has unfortunately quickened by extreme rainfall that is a result of climate change. This erosion has created multiple hindrances to daily life, but the biggest disadvantage is not being able to build permanent structures, especially hospitals.  To address this issue, Bangladesh now has floating hospital ships that are run by non-government organisations. They are equipped with medical facilities and doctors and provide free medical treatment to the people in the "chars". It has helped several people living in those areas. Abdul Jalil lived on a secluded island, several hours from the nearest hospital. He had cataract but no means of curing it. Thanks to the floating hospitals, Jalil had a free cataract surgery last month. "I can"t wait for my eye bandage to come off," said Jalil. "It"s been so ...

Biodegradable chemical from waste food to produce electricity 24.5.2019
Washington: Engineers at the University of Waterloo have developed a technology that can help extract the biodegradable chemical from waste food that can be refined as a source of energy. According to the study published in the 'Bioresource Technology', the chemical could also be used to replace petroleum-based chemicals in a host of products including drugs and plastic packaging. "People like me, environmental biotechnologists, look at food waste as a tremendous resource. With the right technologies, we can extract numerous useful chemicals and fuel from it," said Hyung-Sool Lee, a civil and environmental engineering professor at Waterloo. The technology already exists to reduce the environmental impact by diverting food waste, collecting methane gas as it is broken down by microorganisms and burning the gas to produce electricity. But Lee said that system - known as anaerobic digestion - ultimately yields little or no net benefits when the high costs of food waste mixing and ...
