Rise in crocodile nestings in Odisha elates ecologists

first_imgThe steady increase in sightings of salt water crocodile nests in the swampy creeks of the Bhitarkanika National Park on the Odisha coast for three consecutive seasons has elated ecologists, who have hailed this achievement as the outcome of long-term conservation efforts.The wildlife wing of the State Forest Department has come across 80 crocodile nests in their wild habitats in 2017 in Bhitarkanika, compared with 75 in 2016 and 70 in 2015.“We have spotted 80 nests in the wild. But the number of crocodile nests could be more as we could not trace all of them due to inaccessibility. Of the 80 nests, 70 are in the Kanika range. For the first time, we discovered three crocodile nests in the Gahirmatha range,” Bimal Prasanna Acharya, divisional forest officer of the Rajnagar Forest Division told The Hindu on Tuesday.Bhitarkanika is said to house 70% of India’s estuarine or salt water crocodiles, conservation of which was started over four decades ago in 1975.Back then, when the Government of India and the United Nations Development Programme focussed on saving crocodiles in Bhitarkanika, there were hardly three or four nests sighted in the area and the population of salt water crocodiles was estimated to be 95, including 34 adults. Now, the numbers have grown to 1,682.Long-term effortSince 1977, salt water crocodile eggs have been collected and young crocodiles have been released in the creeks and the estuaries of Bhitarkanika. A decade ago, this practice was discontinued, allowing crocodiles to grow in their natural habitats.“More than 3,000 crocodiles have so far been released into the waters of the Bhitarkanika. We have been able to reverse the trend of a declining crocodile population and make the area a safer habitat for the reptile,” said Sudhakar Kar, a former scientist with the Odisha Forest Department and an expert on crocodiles with the International Union for Conservation of Nature.The Bhitarkanika National Park is a place where the rivers Brahmani, Baitarni, Dhamra and Pathsala meet the Bay of Bengal. The mangrove wetland and a large number muddy creeks provide perfect conditions for estuarine crocodiles to nest. Moreover, the nesting sites of crocodiles are located at places where tidal waves cannot wash away the eggs.“Unlike other crocodiles, estuarine crocodiles lay eggs by creating a mound made of leaves of a particular mangrove species, which are plentifully available in Bhitarkanika. Other crocodile species dig the soil for laying eggs,” said Dr. Kar.Crocodiles start laying eggs by mid-May, with an incubation period of 75 days. The female crocodile guards the nest devotedly for three months. During this period, she tends to attack anything that approaches the nest. Hatchlings come out in the month of August. An average of 25-30 eggs are found in a nest and 30% of hatchlings may finally survive.Dr. Kar said there are large habitats for salt water crocodiles in the Sundarbans in West Bengal, and in the large mangrove wetlands of the Andaman Islands, but they cannot match the density and population of crocodiles in the wild habitats of Bhitarkanika.The national park is also home to the only white-coloured captive crocodile named Gori. Many albino crocodile species can be found in the Bhitarkanika’s waters. The park also houses the world’s largest salt water crocodile, measuring about 23 feet — this was recorded in 2006 in the Guinness World Records.Dr. Kar said, “Salt water crocodiles devour predatory fishes. Hence, more fish thrive with the presence of crocodiles in the water.” He added, “The existence of salt water crocodiles depends on dense wet mangrove forests and the steady discharge of fresh water into the sea. Odisha has the distinction of having all three Indian species of crocodiles. ”last_img read more

Who is England’s World Cup hero Phil Foden?

first_imgManchester City Phil Foden: Who is England’s 17-year-old World Cup hero? Sam Lee Last updated 2 years ago 01:49 10/29/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Phil Foden England Under-17 Getty Images Manchester City Premier League Guardiola Pep Guardiola was raving about the Manchester City starlet to anybody who would listen almost as soon as the coach arrived at the Etihad last year If you’re reading this, you will want to know more about Phil Foden. Put simply, the 17-year-old, shrewdly dubbed “the Stockport Iniesta” by one fan on Twitter, is the jewel of the Manchester City academy. He is the one young player earmarked to make the huge leap in quality and earn a place in Pep Guardiola’s first-team in the coming years.In fact, he already is in the first team. Such is Guardiola’s admiration for his talents, this summer he quietly promoted Foden to the City senior squad. But following his exploits for England’s Under-17s at the World Cup in India, where he won the Golden Ball as the competition’s best player, there will likely be little chance of the youngster doing anything quietly for the next few years. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Phil Foden EnglandGuardiola himself, as the man in charge of the youngster’s destiny in the coming years, has set out the general approach that we, as fans and journalists alike, should all stick to.”It’s dangerous to say good things about young players because they are still young, and they have to grow and they have to learn many, many things,” Guardiola said of Foden on Friday. “But we have a lot of confidence to help him, because we believe he is a guy who has potential, even if he’s not strong, he’s not tall. “I think he has absolutely good potential to be helped, and that is what we do.”A debate has raged over whether Guardiola is quite the nurturer of young talent that he is made out to be, but whether you focus on his unwillingness to use Kelechi Iheanacho and Tosin Adarabioyo, or the impressive job he is doing with John Stones, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane, you would have to say he has strong opinions on which youngsters are worth sticking with. And, as sources close to the City boss will tell you, Guardiola has certainly seen something in Foden.”He is a special player,” he added on Friday. “I think he is a special player. The national team is playing him as a wing-back, or a winger on the right, even though he’s more of a midfielder, but even in that position he plays good.”That was before he scored twice in the U17 final against Spain, goals which will have alerted plenty of others to his talents.Guardiola heard about Foden’s ability before he even left Bayern Munich, such was the extensive research he had carried out before arriving in Manchester, and soon after taking charge last summer he was raving about the youngster during dinner with friends and family.It is why Foden was named on the bench for City’s Champions League game last December, when he was just 16 years old. Yet there was a buzz around him long before Guardiola arrived. In fact, there was a buzz about him before Guardiola even retired from football.Foden signed for City from Reddish Vulcans JFC in 2006, when he was just six years old, and the man who discovered him has since earned himself a full-time position in the club’s academy, almost purely because of size of the gem he unearthed.Foden, like the rest of City’s talented youngsters, was schooled at the local St Bede’s College in Manchester, but unlike many of his team-mates, whether they are still at the club or not, he shunned the lifestyle that comes with being a prodigious teenager.Not that he is unsociable; he is very close friends with Brahim Diaz, who is also rated as a serious prospect at City. The two both play as No.10s in the same City age groups, but the only hint of a rivalry between them is when they play FIFA for hours on end when they stay at City’s training ground the night before matches.It is that approach that helped Foden make his City U18s debut when he was just 15, and why he has now secured his status as one of England’s most promising youngsters, thanks to his World Cup exploits.From his No.10 role he is capable of darting past opponents with a quick burst of speed, or carving open a defence with a fine pass. As Guardiola pointed out, he has done a fine job while out of position with England, and as he himself demonstrated in the final, he knows where the goal is.Phil Foden Manchester CityPhil Foden Manchester CityMoments after he scored his second goal against Spain on Saturday, Guardiola entered the West Brom press room for his City post-match press conference.”In which position did he play during the final?” he asked, half jokingly. “We’ll play him there when he comes back to Manchester.”That may not be too far down the line. Before joining up with England for their World Cup campaign, Foden began the season on the bench for games against Brighton and Everton.The fact Fabian Delph stuck around following the transfer deadline, and has been playing so well at left-back, has limited the youngster’s opportunities for now, but at just 17 years of age he has both time and the belief of his coaches on his side.City could even have recalled him for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup game against Wolves, but decided to let him stay in India and benefit from the experience of playing at an important tournament. For Guardiola, the man who is in charge of his immediate destiny, it is those experiences which are so crucial to young players, and perhaps for the entire future of English football.”Phil has been with us since the beginning of the season and played unbelievably against United and Real Madrid in pre-season,” the Catalan said on Saturday, with the final moments of England’s victory broadcasting on a television next to him. “He trains with us every single day. He’s just 17 but he is a player in our squad. He’s in the locker room every day with the guys – it’s the best way to learn from the experienced guys that have played at a high level.”It’s so important for Manchester City that he is playing in a high level. He’s played a World Cup. England will be World champions in that age. When that guy grows and plays in a World Cup in future, he has lived that situation before and will know what he has to do. “English football needs that. It is the step they need. It happened in Spain. Spain was always last-16, quarter-finals…they arrived in the semi-finals and since then they have won every time. That’s why it is so important.”Many of those Spain fans, who have seen their country conquer all age groups in the last decade, were watching Saturday’s final in amazement at Foden’s talents, with many remarking that he could easily have been brought through Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy.Under the watchful eye of Guardiola and many former Barca employees who have been embedded in the Manchester City set-up in recent years, he is in the right place to develop the kind of continental poise and technique that has got him this far. But make no mistake, he is an English talent, and one worth getting excited about.

Tax Credit Supports Farmer Donations to Food Banks

first_imgFarmers who donate to food banks in Nova Scotia will qualify for a new tax credit to encourage fresh produce donations. Agriculture Minister Keith Colwell outlined the tax credit today, May 19, at Feed Nova Scotia in Halifax. “Government is working with farmers to help Nova Scotians who need it most,” said Mr. Colwell. “This will help ensure food banks have fresh, local, nutritious produce.” “We all know the value of fresh food – it’s physical nourishment for today, and it’s hope and health for the future,” said Nick Jennery, executive director of Feed Nova Scotia. “This new incentive for farmers to donate surplus food opens up huge doors of opportunity. We can’t wait to work with the farming community and our network of member agencies across the province to get more fresh food to the tables of people who need it.” Donations of fresh, surplus produce can be made to a registered food bank by an individual or corporation carrying on business as a farm and will receive a tax credit equal to 25 per cent of the fair market value of the donation. They will also be eligible for the charitable donation tax credit. “Farmers have for many years given graciously to Nova Scotia’s food banks,” said Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture President Chris van den Heuvel. “The food bank tax credit for farmers will provide some tax incentives and good agricultural products to Nova Scotians who need it.” The tax credit will be retroactive to Jan. 1. Further details about the credit, which was part of Budget 2016-2017, will be spelled out in regulations to follow. It is estimated that the tax credit could cost $300,000 this year. “Agriculture is the backbone of our rural economy and this is another way for us to support the contributions our farmers make to strong and healthy communities,” said Mr. Colwell.

Global climate protests begin in Australia before UN summit

first_imgCanberra: Tens of thousands of protesters gathered Friday at rallies around Australia as a day of worldwide demonstrations calling for action to guard against climate change began ahead a UN summit in New York. Some of the first rallies in what is being billed as a “global climate strike” kicked off in Australia’s largest city, Sydney, and the national capital, Canberra. Australian demonstrators called for their nation, which is the world’s largest exporter of coal and liquid natural gas, to take more drastic action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Similar rallies were planned Friday in cities around the globe. In the United States more than 800 events were planned Friday, while in Germany more than 400 rallies were expected. A similar coordinated protest in March that drew crowds around the world. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protests The protests are partly inspired by the activism of Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, who has staged weekly demonstrations under the heading “Fridays for Future” over the past year, calling on world leaders to step up their efforts against climate change. Many who have followed her lead are students, but the movement has since spread to civil society groups. Australian universities have said they will not penalize students for attending Friday’s rallies, while Australian schools vary on what action, if any, they take against children who skip classes to attend demonstrations. Siobhan Sutton, a 15-year-old student at Perth Modern School, said she would fail a math exam by attending a protest in the west coast city of Perth. “I have basically been told that because it is not a valid reason to be missing school it is not a medical reason or anything I am going to get a zero on the test if I don’t actually sit it,” she said. “Even though we ourselves aren’t sick, the planet which we live on is, and we are protesting and fighting for it,” she added. Siobhan said her math teacher had given her the option to sit the exam before Friday, but she was unable to do so because of her commitments as one of the protest organisers. Acting Prime Minister Michael McCormack said students should be in school. “These sorts of rallies should be held on a weekend where it doesn’t actually disrupt business, it doesn’t disrupt schools, it doesn’t disrupt universities,” McCormack told reporters in Melbourne. “I think it is just a disruption,” he added. The demonstrations come as Australia’s center-left opposition mulls abandoning its policy, rejected at May elections, of reducing Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s conservative coalition won a surprise third term with a commitment to reduce emissions by a more modest 26% to 28% in the same time frame. Morrison is in the U.S. for a state dinner with President Donald Trump on Friday and has been criticized for failing to include in his New York itinerary the UN climate summit on Monday, when leaders will present their long-term plans for curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Government lawmaker Craig Kelly on Thursday told students who planned to join Friday’s climate strike that “you are being used and manipulated and everything you are told is a lie.” “The facts are, there is no link between climate change and drought; polar bears are increasing in number,” Kelly told Parliament. “Today’s generation is safer from extreme weather than at any time in human history,” he added. Some companies are encouraging their employees to join the climate strike. Australian Council of Trade Unions, which represents labor unions, said it supported employees taking time off work to protest. The council said in a statement that it “must take a stand for our future when our government will not.”last_img read more

To evaluate someone on their sesquicentennial year

first_imgTo evaluate someone on their sesquicentennial year of birth is to define the relevance of that individual in the contemporary social framework. It is with the same perspective that we ought to gauge the relevance of Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary. Again, the word relevance can be an epigram in itself because an individual can be present without his ideas being followed. It seems Gandhi is ever present. He is featured on our currency notes, he continues to be referred to in the ongoing political and economic discourse taking place in the country and we celebrate his birthday as a National Holiday. The question is whether we let Gandhi remain confined to currency notes and to our rhetoric or we seek application of those ideals that Gandhi epitomised. Also Read – Hijacking Bapu’s legacyLooking at the present state of affairs in India, one would probably surmise that Gandhism, whatever the term may mean, does not have any real existence in this century. But if we explore the basic tenets of Gandhian philosophy, we come to realise that the moral crisis that has gripped us can be remedied by Gandhian principles. Hence, it is for us to decipher those virtues of Gandhi which singled him out as a thinker and meditate over their application in the present era. Also Read – The future is here!Mahatma Gandhi stood for Pluralism. His politics did not exhibit any parochial attitude as he advocated for an amalgamation of ideas. The emergence of Gandhi saw the rise of nationalism in India. He himself became the most acknowledged political personality during India’s struggle for Independence. It was also an era of various political ideologies, many of which were contrary to each other. Gandhi, however, never displayed any unilateral political approach. He spoke for political inclusiveness while also standing for the Indian belief of assimilation and mutual reciprocation. There may have been situations where his discussion with the Muslim League failed or his relationship with the RSS got strained but Gandhi never wavered from his policy of bilateral discussion. Regarding the strategy of the Mahatma, George Bernard Shaw once remarked that though Gandhi has committed some tactical errors, his essential strategy continued to work. If there is one reason for Mahatma Gandhi to be remembered for generations to come, it is for his creed of non-violence as a means of protest. One wonders how non-violence and peace can be relied upon as a method to fight for justice, freedom and human rights. The western world was in absolute awe. It came at a time when Europe was buckling under the impact of World Wars. The holocaust and genocide aroused a yearning for peace which Gandhi and his philosophy centred on. In India, Gandhi’s non-violence manifested an unconventional method of non-cooperation that had a far more persistent effect than militancy. The British were bamboozled about finding a response. Little wonder that towering intellectuals of the west like Romain Roland, Louis Fischer and Albert Einstein embraced Gandhian thought. Mahatma Gandhi’s doctrine of non-violence stood upon the prop of Humanism. He was a humanist who manifested the spirituality and universality of Indian philosophy. His movements, be it with the indigo cultivators in Champaran or the textile mill workers in Ahmedabad or even against Apartheid in South Africa are crusades for justice and social rights. At a time when the country was burning in the flames of partition and when most of the leading politicians in India were busy in weaving political motif, Gandhi went to Noakhali in the eastern part of Bengal and it is largely because of his intervention that the drive for ethnic killings in Bengal was diminished. If Karl Marx has voiced his concern for the benediction of the oppressed class through his socialistic philosophy, Gandhi, too, longed for the same, perhaps in a more holistic manner. He took up the fight against untouchability and sought social rights for the so-called untouchables. As a humanist, Gandhi has influenced the likes of Martin Luther King, Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi. The struggle to uphold humanism is an unending one in which Gandhi shines like a beam of inspiration. To many, Gandhi’s concept of Gram Swaraj appears to be utopian but it is to be remembered that all thoughts with novelty and iconoclasm are primarily utopian. In his famous work “Utopia”, Thomas More remarked that all philosophers dream of utopia till it is not practically applied. So, Gandhi’s dream of a social order based on welfare, economic parity and amicability can be considered the ultimate condition of proper sociable existence. It is this craving that has led saints, philosophers and liberals in their fight against forces that are antagonistic to humanism. Given that even today, the majority of India lives in the villages, Gandhi’s idea of Gram Swaraj cannot be done away with and nor can we still ignore the significance of cottage industries in the matter of economic prosperity at the rural level. In his zeal for the upliftment of the economically challenged and socially deprived, Gandhi sings in the same tune as Swami Vivekananda and Adam Smith. Gandhi’s ideas on basic education still hold true for his emphasis was not on mass literacy alone but on fundamentals of goodness being imbibed through education. Mahatma Gandhi was no saint nor did he do anything hitherto unknown. He once stated, “I have nothing to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills.” If today, Gandhian principles are still lacking in India, it is because we are visibly lacking individuals who think beyond their peevish desires. Whether in the context of welfare governance or global peace or distributive justice, India cannot disown Gandhi. In a world of materialism and consumerism, we are to attain economic, social and moral freedom and for that, we need the ‘Saint of Sabarmati’ with us.

Houston Thousands of people from all walks of lif

first_imgHouston: Thousands of people from all walks of life turned out for the day-long ceremonies here on Wednesday to honour slain Indian-American police officer Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal, who was shot dead on duty during a traffic stop. Dhaliwal, 42, was the first Sikh sheriff’s deputy in Harris County with a population of over 10,000 Sikhs. He made national headlines when he was allowed to grow a beard and wear a turban on the job. He was gunned down while conducting a routine mid-day traffic stop in northwest of Houston on Friday.

As ‘Amazing Grace’ was played on the bagpipes, members of Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) folded the American flag that covered his casket and Sheriff Ed Gonzalez presented it to Dhaliwal’s widow who clutched it to her heart. After final ceremonies from the law enforcement memorial service, the Dhaliwal family and members of HCSO headed to the Winford Funeral Home for a closed cremation.

At the service, Simratpal Singh, a US Army Captain, flanked by other members of the Sikh community in military service, described Dhaliwal as “humble, fearless, not dissuaded by negativity.” “Our lion may be gone physically but his legacy of selfless service and of breaking down barriers will continue to live,” he said. Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, speaking before thousands during the Sikh part of the ceremony, addressed Dhaliwal’s wife and three children in saying the community “supports you and lifts you up.” “We are grateful for your father’s service, and his sacrifice and his legacy,” Cruz said. Dhaliwal, the father of three, joined the force 10 years back and was the state’s first law enforcement officer to receive permission to wear a religious turban and beard while on duty. Commissioner Adrian Garcia who hired Dhaliwal 10 years ago said the stadium full of people and the deputy’s celebration of life was “fit for a king.” As he addressed Dhaliwal’s father, he said, “Baba, you raised a good man. You raised him with a heart of gold. It is unfair that a father should outlive his son.” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said he doesn’t normally speak at public funerals but he was honoured to be invited to speak at Dhaliwal’s funeral. “Since 2015, we’ve lost 50… 50 men and women of law enforcement in the line of duty and Deputy Dhaliwal was the 50th,” he said. “He (Sandeep) did more in his life than some people do in a hundred years, he added. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said it was “moments like these when we fall on our faith.” “He (Dhaliwal) was the ambassador of all that is good. And the way he died does not erase that,” Turner said. “In a city that happens to be the most diverse in the country, is a city, because of this one person, on this day and hopefully days to come, will be the most unified it has ever been,” added Turner. Gonzalez said Dhaliwal was a trailblazer and wore his Sikh faith on the outside for all to see. “Sandeep was an inspiration to us all and was considered to be one of our finest deputies, with a bright future to match his beautiful bright personality. I will miss the gentle smile and embrace I received each time I saw him,” he said. New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, the nation’s first Sikh state’s attorney general, said Dhaliwal “inspired an entire generation of Sikhs” to join public service. The services on Wednesday followed a candlelight vigil by the sheriff’s office for Dhaliwal on Monday and a 48-hour-long prayer-vigil. Dhaliwal was killed in the town of Cypress after pulling over a vehicle for running a stop sign. Investigators said video from a dashboard camera shows the suspect, 47-year-old Robert Solis, getting out of his car, approaching Dhaliwal from behind and shooting him twice in the head. Police said Solis had a warrant for his arrest on parole violations and likely feared that his arrest would mean a return to prison. Solis, who has been charged with capital murder, was arrested at a nearby grocery parking lot.last_img read more

Receipt Act to provide every American with an itemized receipt explaining how their taxpayer dollars are being spent The steps towards a more open and transparent government may seem modest to some
