ARE INDIAN POLITICIANS IGNORANT ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING?

India on path to meet climate targets, rich world falling short Sixteen of the 25 major carbon emitting countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada and the EU nations (counted together) are not on track to achieve their Paris pledges, says a new global report released in Germany on Wednesday. The report, based on scientific analysis of what all the top 25 emitters have been doing to cut their emissions, has noted that only nine of these countries, including India and China, are "on track to achieve or even overachieve their self-determined unconditional" targets. This new report by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and two other institutions including New Climate Institute provides an overview of projected greenhouse gas emissions in 25 major emitting countriesregion up to 2030, taking into account the emission trajectories based on current policies and the implementation of their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. The report, while highlighting how most developed countries were falling short, attributed their poor record on the higher commitments made. It noted that a country likely to meet its NDC was not necessarily undertaking more stringent action on mitigation than a country which is not on track, as this...

HAS DEMONETISATION HELPED?

PM Thanks People For Support, Tweets Video on Note Ban Benefits Wednesday, 8 November, marks one year since Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s big surprise announcement to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes. The Congress-led Opposition, which has heavily criticised demonetisation over the past year, will launch nationwide protests to observe what has labelled ‘Black Day’. Meanwhile, BJP stalwarts, including Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley, are busy defending demonetisation and its benefits. SOURCE - THE QUINT Rahul Gandhi attacks Modi, says PM’s 'thoughtless act' destroyed livelihoods of honest Indians On demonetization's first-anniversary, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi hit-out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying, livelihoods of millions of Indians were destroyed by PM’s thoughtless act.

HAS THE PADMAVATI CONTROVERSY TAKEN A SERIOUS TURN?

Padmavati, we hang not just effigies: Man found hanging from Jaipur's Nahargarh fort walls A young man was found hanging off the parkot (parapet) of Jaipur's famous Nahargarh fort. The death is being linked to the protests against Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film Padmavati. This is because a charcoal graffiti on the wall next to the lifeless body said, "Padmavati, hum sirf putle nahi latkate (Padmavati, we hang not just effigies)." The words "Padmavati ka virodh (Protest against Padmavati)" were also found next to the body. The Jaipur Police is investigating the case. It's not clear whether it was a murder or a suicide. SOURCE - INDIA TODAY Body found in Jaipur’s Nahargarh fort, message claims link to Padmavati row The body of a yet-to-be identified man was found hanging from Jaipur’s Nahargarh fort on Friday morning and a message written on a rock nearby suggested the death was linked to the row over the Bollywood movie Padmavati. “We don’t just hang effigies. Padmavati”, said the message in Hindi, seen in images posted by news agency ANI. It is yet to be determined whether the death was a murder or a suicide. “It is early to comment on it as the matter is under investigation. The identity of the...

Is The iPhone Value For Money Or Waste Of Money?

THE EXPENSIVE HABIT OF IPHONE BUYING! After months of unprecedented hype and rumours, Apple finally took the wraps of the iPhone X at an event at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino yesterday. The iPhone X has been launched to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the iPhone and as a result is the most radical update to the iPhone line-up yet. But all this extravagance comes at a cost. You will have to pay a king's ransom to get your hands on the iPhone X when it arrives in India on November 3. Smartphones have been getting expensive year on year. There was a time when a device costing more than Rs 50,000 was completely unheard off. But now the iPhone X has shattered all price barriers. Let me put it into perspective. Two Samsung Galaxy S8's can be bought for Rs 1,15,000. A fancy 250cc bike can be bought for Rs 1 lakh. One iPhone X can be bought for Rs 1,02,000. There is a cheaper model with 64GB storage for Rs 89,000. But even that seems a bit too much at first glance. The last time Apple overhauled the design of the iPhone was with the iPhone 6 in 2014. They...
