Chennai: Water hyacinth good at absorbing industrial pollutants 5.3.2017
Chennai: Water hyacinth (Agayathmarai), always cursed by environmentalists for consuming water resources heavily, has been found to be very useful in converting industry effluents into a useful water resource for irrigation, a team of students proved in a science exhibition.  A team of engineering students from M.A.M College, Trichy, proved that water hyacinth had a significant role in filtering heavy metals and other impurities in water. The team won first prize at an exhibition ‘Innowah’, that was held at IIT Madras on Tuesday.  The team members, M Shabudeen and P Kiruthiga, final year civil engineering students, from the college, said, “There have been quite a number of allegations on growing technology for being unfair to nature, but we have come out with few technologies aiming to conserve natural resources.”  “The plant absorbs the metal impurities and retains it in the tissues. It aids in decomposition too. Since the plant consumes oxygen from water, it should not be allowed to grow in water ...

Mysuru: Responding to protests by NGOs and environmentalists over the desilting and development of the historical Kukkarhalli lake by the University of Mysuru, Deputy Commissioner D Randeep has written to the Lake Development Authority to depute two experts to study the lake's conservation. "The university has been asked to suspend desilting work until then," he added. Executive engineer in charge of the project,  Kishore Chandra, said the university, which was the lake's custodian,  planned to develop it at a cost of Rs 1.58 crores.

Athirappilly plan may leave Ernakulam dehydrated 3.3.2017
Kochi: The announcement by the State Government that it would go ahead with the Athirappilly hydro electric power project has created fear of a drinking water shortage in many places in Ernakulam district. The panchayats of Puthenveilkkara, Kuzhur, Parakkadvu and Kunnukara which depend on the Chalakudy river basin supply and Karukutty, Mookkannur, Angamaly, Kalady, Manjapra and Thuravoor panchayats which depend on the Thumboourmuzhy project will be facing a severe shortfall in the water requirements. The water flow to Thumboormuzhy will be halved by 50 per cent with the onset of the Athirappally project. “The available data will show that the water flow will be down by at least 50 per cent”, says PS Ravi of the Chalakudy Puzha Samrakshana Samithi.

So does demonetisation spell doom for e-commerce in India? Online Shopping Payment Trends in India Online stores offer a wide variety of payment options like credit/debit cards, net banking, e-wallets and cash on delivery (COD).
