NASA agrees.The aeronautics and space agency has an interactive feature, Images of Change, that shows the dramatic effects of global change, urbanization, extreme storms, and more over time. In the images, giant glaciers melt in the span of weeks, entire rivers dry up in just a few years, and floods devastate crops all around.

Vasundhara Raje to launch State-wide Vikas Yatra in April

first_imgRajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje will launch a Vikas Yatra next month covering all 200 assembly constituencies in the State.The decision to undertake the State-wide developmental tour from April 15 was taken in Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting chaired by the Chief Minister, said State minister Gajendra Singh Khimsar.“The yatra will kick-off from April 15 from the tribal- dominated division of Udaipur to highlight BJP government’s achievements in the State. Local MLAs, MPs and minister-in-charge of the districts would accompany the Chief Mnister during her tour that would culminate in July,” said Mr. sar. The party leaders are being apprised of the impending plans for the yatra, slated in the run-up to forthcoming assembly elections likely to be held by year end. This would be Ms. Raje’s third yatra since 2003 when she first took over BJP’s reins in the state. She had earlier undertaken Parivartan Yatra and Suraj Sankal Yatra.last_img read more

29 years later, Kashmir Pandit returns to jubilant welcome

first_imgA Kashmiri Pandit’s homecoming to Srinagar, 29 years after he left the State, on Thursday was met with a rousing reception from locals, infusing hope for the peaceful return of the Hindu community that had to leave the Kashmir Valley in the 1990s in the face of raging militancy.Roshan Lal Mawa, in his 70s, on Thursday threw open a shop selling dates in the volatile old city’s Zanai Kadal area, from where he hails originally. That Mr. Mawa will sell a variety of dates is also symbolic since the Muslim holy month of Ramzan is a few days away.Jubilant localsTo his surprise, decision to reopen the shop, closed for 29 years, attracted jubilant locals and fellow shopkeepers. Mr. Mawa was welcomed with the tying of a white turban around his head, a Kashmiri tradition, and many hugs were exchanged. “I have set up a thriving dry fruit business outside [Kashmir]. I lived a happy life in Delhi. But I decided to return [to Kashmir] because I missed the affection I have here, the brotherhood, the hugs and the Kashmiriyat (cultural values of the Kashmiri people). You can’t find these values anywhere in the world,” said Mr. Mawa.He was among the hundreds of members of the Kashmiri Pandit community that was forced to migrate outside the Valley as militancy spread in the 1990s. Mr. Mawa’s decision to return was not easy, given the circumstances in which he had to leave.“It was October 13, 1990. A youth entered my shop and asked for dry fruit samples. In the meantime, he pulled out a pistol and shot me four times in my abdomen. I survived. I, along with my wife, moved outside the State,” he recalled.‘Yearning to return’He said his return to his roots “reflects the general yearning of my community to return home”. But, Mr. Mawa added, “I oppose the idea of having separate colonies for Pandits. It will make us soft targets. I want my [Muslim] neighbours to take care of my children.” Leaders of regional parties joined in welcoming Mr. Mawa. “Eventually, it will be this leap of faith taken by Roshan Lal and the warmth shown by his Muslim brethren that will strengthen ties and also encourage them [Kashmiri Pandits] to return home, where they truly belong,” said Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.last_img read more

Talks on for Local Sports Manufacturing Outlet

first_imgMinister with responsibility for Sports, Hon. Natalie Neita-Headley, says that discussions are taking place towards the development of a manufacturing facility for the production of Jamaican-made sporting goods. “I am looking closely at a sports manufacturing outlet and I am having those discussions now. I want to see a Jamaican brand on sporting goods coming out of Jamaica, home of the fastest man, sold to the rest of the world,” she said. She was speaking at the press launch of the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club’s (JMMC) Invitational Stages Rally on November 15, at the Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston. Mrs. Neita Headley stated that the island needs to capitalise on the popularity of its many sports stars. “I have no difficulty with other countries gaining from our talents but I will continue to say, the country that owns the resource must also gain the most from that resource, and so I continue to push forward to ensure that whatever it is that we do in terms of development, that a team is in place…looking at marketing sports,” she said. The 21st staging of the JMMC Invitational Stages Rally will be held from November 30 to December 2. This year’s championship has attracted drivers from Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as well as a strong local contingent.last_img read more
