Green initiatives showcased at IITF

Special Arrangement An organic waste processing system that produces bio-manure and biogas with solar and wind energy. Special Arrangement A drip irrigation solution to ensure that plants are taken care of by a machine. The India International Trade Fair (IITF) that ended on Thursday saw a number of entrepreneurs showcase innovative ideas that struck a chord with visitors. A start-up venture from the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi launched a solution that can provide a fillip to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. It is an organic waste processing system that produces bio-manure and biogas with solar and wind energy.The inventors — Green Brick Eco Solutions — wondered what to do with the waste that is removed as landfills have both atmospheric and hydrological effects. They came up with an answer to develop a complete environment-friendly waste management system, a machine that processes the garbage collected with the help of renewable energy and produces bio-manure and biogas.Very few Delhiites get the opportunity to try their hand at organic farming or grow potted plants in their balcony or terrace. The blame the lack of space or time for this. However, Vidhi Enterprises has come up with a drip irrigation device that runs on battery to take care of plants. Once programmed, it can run for a couple of months. It has successfully been used by people who want to have a beautiful balcony garden but are careless when it comes to tending to plants. ...  

Girls Volleyball Player of the Year: Nashville's Harre excelled after move to ...

Any volleyball coach would like to have a player like Jordi Harre on the team. Yes, she’s talented, but her burning desire to win sets her apart from a lot of the competition.The Nashville senior was the best all-around player in Southern Illinois this season. For her efforts, Harre is The Southern Illinoisan’s Volleyball Player of the Year.“I really worked hard on each position, and it was a really big challenge moving to outside hitter because I’m not very tall,” Harre said. “Instead of trying to hit it really hard, I had to play smart. I wasn’t really trying to smash it every time. I had to hit it off the block and hope the other team made a mistake. It was never boring because I was always doing something different.”Though only 5-foot-7, Harre made a difference on the court. The senior did everything well. She accumulated 458 assists, 203 digs and 196 kills to go along with 71 aces serving.Her transition from a setter as an underclassman to an outside hitter the past two years made her the ultimate complete player.“I think I played my best this year, and my serve really improved, and I had a lot more aces than in previous years,” Harre said. “I think I got stronger at setting, too. I always had trouble pushing it outside and now it’s not hard for me because my legs and arms got stronger.”Harre won several awards this year, including the MVP at the Monster Mash tournament in October...  

Europa League roundup: Spurs, Celtic advance; Inter Milan, Fiorentina clinch ...

Among others, Barclays Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, Scottish Premier League giants Celtic, and Serie A middle-of-the-table dwellers Inter Milan and Fiorentina all booked places in the knockout round in the latest round of 2014-15 Europa League action on Thursday. Mauricio Pochettino‘s Spurs saw off Group C cellar dwellers Partizan Belgrade, 1-0, at White Hart Lane, thanks to a 49th-minute goal from midfielder Benjamin Stambouli. The Frenchman first Spurs goal was the result of more bad luck for wayward Spanish forward Roberto Soldado who, 1-on-1, hit the far post after chipping the goalkeeper, but Stambouli made the late run into the box and slammed the rebound home. Spurs currently sit atop the group, two points ahead of final matchday opponents Besiktas — 2-2 drawers on Thursday — meaning a draw or a win in Istanbul clinches top spot for the North Londoners. Elsewhere… Celtic were embarrassed by Red Bull Salzburg, 3-1, on the field, and booed off it as the full-time whistle went at Celtic Park. However, Astra Giurgiu‘s 1-0 defeat of then-third-placed Dinamo Zagreb means Ronny Deila‘s men maintain a four-point advantage over the Romanians in third with one matchday left to go, thus moving the Scottish side on to the knockout round.

Indonesia's Steel Industry Affected by Oversupply in China

28 November 2014 | Indonesia InvestmentsSubjects | Automotive, Cars, China, Irvan Kamal Hakim, Krakatau Steel, KRAS, Mitsubishi Steel Manufacturing, Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation, Steel, Steel Consumption, Steel Price, Steel ProductionIrvan Kamal Hakim, Director at Krakatau Steel (Indonesia’s largest steel manufacturer), said that the domestic steel industry is still affected by prolonged concerns about excess steel supply in China, the world's largest steel producer. Amid slowing economic growth in the world’s second-largest economy, domestic steel demand in China has declined resulting in a global oversupply of 525 million tons. Each 1 percent decline in GDP growth in China results in an additional oversupply of 24 million tons of steel. Global excess supply, triggered by developments in China, means that the global steel price cannot rise markedly yet. The central bank of China has recently cut interest rates for the first time in over two years in an attempt to boost domestic consumption and economic growth (required to push the steel price back up). However, analysts are pessimistic about the direction of steel prices in the foreseeable future as manufacturing in China is still slowing. Indonesia’s domestic steel production capacity is limited and therefore the country needs to import steel, mainly from China. In 2013, Indonesian steel demand was recorded at about 15 million tons, while annual domestic productio...

No Myth: Your Heart Attack Chance Increases During Holidays

Let’s talk turkey: does the holiday season really increase your chance of having a heart attack? Sadly, the answer is a resounding yes, according to multiple robust research studies. There are multiple reasons for this, which include: Colder Weather. Circulation becomes more difficult in colder weather, leading to a higher possibility of blood clot formation Strenuous Activity. Shoveling Snow, for example, increases your oxygen demand, which may be impaired by blockages in your heart called arteriosclerosis. This may lead to heart attack. Large, heavy, fat-laden meals (like the one you just consumed) — these direct blood flow to your digestive organs and away from your heart, increasing a risk of oxygen deprivation and heart attack. While the risk is not greatly increased (somewhere around five percent) it is enough that you should take any warning signs quite seriously during the holiday season. Knowing the risk factors for heart attack and warning signs are highly related to seeking early treatment and preventing death, according to multiple research studies. Risk factors for heart attack include: diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, male gender, advanced age, African-American descent, smoking, working the night shift, and lower socioeconomic status. While there are cardinal signs that signal heart attack, they are not the same for all people. Women and diabetics, for example, may not experience the majo...

Read More Close Open Photographer: Tomohiro Ohsumi/Bloomberg A Chinese national flag flies in front of buildings in the Lujiazui district of Shanghai. China surpassed Japan as the world’s second-largest economy in 2010. China surpassed Japan as the world’s second-largest stock market for the first time in three years amid growing investor confidence that policy makers in Beijing will revive the economy with monetary stimulus. China’s market capitalization climbed to $4.48 trillion yesterday after a 33 percent increase this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Japan’s slipped to $4.46 trillion and has dropped 3.2 percent since the end of December. China was briefly the second-biggest market, behind the U.S., in March 2011 after an earthquake in Japan sent shares tumbling in Tokyo. While the weakening yen played a role in Japan’s shrinking market value in dollar terms, the Shanghai Composite Index (SHCOMP) has climbed three times as much as Tokyo’s Topix this year. China cut interest rates for the first time since 2012 last week and economists predict authorities will take more steps to support an economy headed for its slowest annual e...
