Why forest is so essential?

More than 20,000 tree species are in danger and more than 1,400 of them are on the basic rundown, as per the FAO. Appraisals recommend 420 million hectares of backwoods have been lost since 1990 and even though the pace of misfortune has eased back, 10 million hectares were lost among 2015 and this year.  Woodlands spread just about 33% of the Earth's surface. 
420 million hectares have been lost since 1990. 
The UN uncovers 5 shrouded advantages of woodlands, from ensuring the dirt to giving water to the world's urban communities. 
It is assessed that 1.2 trillion trees should be planted to battle environmental change. 
"Backwoods are the lungs of our territory, sanitizing the air and invigorating new to our kin," said previous US president, Franklin Roosevelt. 
Covering right around 33% of the Earth's surface, timberlands are home to eight of every 10 creature and plant species. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) says the world's woods inc…

Impact of Mauritius oil spill

There is a ship owned by Nagasaki shipping. It was carrying oil, which is about 4000, tonnes. This particular ship recently went and wrapped into a coral reef, and, ultimately, causing the oil spill in the Indian Ocean. More than a thousand tons of oil was leaked into this particular region in the environmentally protected marine ecosystem regions, and also the Blue Bay Marine ParkThis Blue Bay Marine Park reserve is one of the important wetlands of national importance.M Mauritius is one of the biodiversity hotspots. It has a high concentration of plants, animals, unique to this particular region. So what would be the loss at the marine level? And what would be the loss on the economy we have to focus on. When comes to marine life, we have the coral reef, the coral reef is also called the rain forests of the sea. Because of the diversity that is present in and around this particular coral reef, and they will also protect the coastline from the storms and erosion. Due to the oil spil…

Story behind Beirut blast and challenges

More than a hundred people were killed, and nearly 4000 people were injured because of a massive explosion that took place in Lebanon's capital.  The initial assessment says this is because of the detonation of more than 2700 tons of ammonium nitrate. This is just the initial assessment, but clear cut analysis for the same is yet to be released by the government.  Ammonium nitrate is an odorless, crystalline substance that is used in bomb-making, as well as in fertilizer. It is the main component when it comes to the number of applications like the mining explosives, where it is mixed with the fuel, and then it is detonated with an explosive charge. More the ammonium nitrate is the bigger explosive capacity and at the same time, it is also used in the agricultural field. When it is used as a fertilizer ammonium nitrate is frequently added to increase, fertilizers, nitrogen content. It is used in the form of a granule when it comes to fertilizer. So when it is added to the fertilize…

Donald Trump has signed an executive order that prevents hiring of foreign workers on H-1B visas.

As expected, US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that prevents American federal agencies from contracting or hiring foreign workers, especially those who are on H-1B visas. A few weeks back in June Trump had suspended the issuance of temporary work visas, including the H-1B visa till the end of this year. Now, his administration has brought in a new executive order that prevents American federal agencies from hiring foreign workers, especially those who are in the United States on H-1B visas. The President has stated that this decision has been taken in the interest of protecting American jobs, which, according to him is being snatched away by cheap foreign labor, and this is in line with his America first policy.  Donald Trump has justified that these decisions are necessary to protect American jobs as the unemployment rate has risen exponentially. Due to the stagnation of the American economy, which has been further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

What had changed in J&K since revocation of Article 370 and 35A

Article 370, and Article 35A J&K had been provided with a special status. This allowed Jammu and Kashmir, to have its flag and constitution. And it also granted political and administrative autonomy to the government of Jammu and Kashmir and the state legislature.
It also allowed the state government and the state legislature to define the permanent residents of the state under Article 35A, and subsequently provide them special rights and privileges, which is denied to outsiders. So such special provisions were provided to the state of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370, and under Article 35A  by keeping in mind the difficult circumstances under which J&K became a part of the Indian union. But over the years critics of these provisions have argued that the special status has promoted terrorism. It has blocked development in Jammu and Kashmir. And more importantly, it has affected the complete integration of J&K with the Indian union, thereby threatening the unity and the i…

How lockdown having a disproportionate impact on women

A disaster or catastrophic ends to have a disproportionate impact on women. According to the writer, this is because of the traditional gender-based role of women in society. For example, during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, it was observed that the disaster had a disproportionate impact on women, mainly because of their gender-defined roles. Since women are generally seen as the traditional caregiver in the family, they lacked the required life-saving skills, and as a result, a relatively higher number of deaths count was registered amongst women during the tsunami. Then after the disaster, women who were rendered homeless were accommodated in relief camps. And it was observed that at these relief camps, women had to face abuse and molestation, and they even had to face hygiene and sanitation issues at these relief camps. similar challenges have been faced by women in the United States as well, which is frequently hit by tornadoes. similar challenges were noted during the 2018 19 f…

Are humans responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic

Humans responsible for the pandemic According to the UNDP. The spread of a zoonotic disease such as COVID-19 can be directly attributed to the overexploitation of biodiversity and ecosystems by human beings. The UNDP has said that several zoonotic diseases have affected human beings because of increased contact of humans with animals. Especially wild animals. So these diseases with a jump from animals to human beings are referred to as zoonotic diseases or zoonosis. And it is a direct outcome of the overexploitation of biodiversity and ecosystems through human activities. The UNDP report even says that it is not just COVID-19 but even tuberculosis, rabies, malaria, toxoplasmosis h1 none SARS, burst, Ebola Zika, etc. They are all examples of zoonosis that have jumped from animals to human beings. And in each case, the source can be attributed to the destruction of the environment and biodiversity through human activities
It is found that the coronavirus outbreak certainly comes from t…

Researchers found new symptoms of COVID19

Many COVID-19 cases have emerged from Europe and the United States, where many patients have reported a complete inability to smell or even to taste. So, this has given rise to questions, whether the SARS coronavirus is affecting our neurons that are responsible for smell and taste, or is it affecting other cells, which are involved in this olfactory function. A recent study conducted in India has shown that it is not the neurons that are being affected by the virus, but instead, it is a set of cells present in the upper regions of our nasal cavity that are being affected by the double Coronavirus. These cells include the sub Technicolor cells and the horizontal basal cells. But importantly, these cells are not directly involved in helping us smell. It means that these cells are not directly involved in the olfactory function. But these cells help us nourish and support the other cells, which are actually involved in the olfactory function. So this means that the novel Coronavirus is…
