Threats faced by lon- wolf attackers around the world

Let us understand what is a lone wolf attack. Before we understand this. When you look at the terrorist organization, have a hierarchy in this hierarchy, the leader who is leading this organization. There are a couple of people who also follow the leader and his actions.  This terrorist organization also has an objective. It might be political or it can be economical, or it can be religious as well. So this is an agenda, an agenda of political in nature, economic in nature, or it can be religious, and it can also be a combination of all these things. So what have in a terrorist organization. These couple of people have a hierarchic structure, following the commands of the leader. This is how the terrorist organization runs, they have an objective, they have a goal, and they have to meet this particular agenda.
 Now, what is a lone-wolf attack as the name denotes it is a single person, carrying out an attack that is not affiliated to an organization. He is not affiliated with any organi…

Why Indian Universities poorly performed in the Global University Ranking?

If we look at global university rankings. Even elite Indian institutions, such as IITs IIMs. The Indian Institute of Science, etc. They perform very poorly. See, there are a few university rankings, that are considered as a global standard. And one of them happens to be the QS World University Rankings. The 2020 edition of the QS World University Rankings, which provides the list of rankings for 2021, was released just a couple of days ago, and to India shock. Not a single Indian University is in the top hundred of this ranking list. So this clearly shows how poorly Indian universities perform when it comes to global rankings, and hence it is very important for us to understand the reasons behind it. If you ask me why Indian universities ranked so poorly in global rankings. I can point out these five reasons. One, the difference in ranking methodology, Two, the poor infrastructure of Indian universities. Third, the lack of focus on research and development Fourth, the lack of interac…

How COVID-19 pandamic back our response to climate change

Right now, governments around the world, private businesses, and even individuals are concerned about the economic impact of the pandemic. Hence the primary focus is to revive growth and development at any cost. But the question is, would these development policies, take our focus away from climate change and environmental conservation. There are two ways in which the pandemic can determine our response to climate change in the future. One, we can treat the pandemic as an opportunity and work towards remodeling our economies and societies. Such a remodeling can make our economic policies more environmentally friendly and this opportunity could enable the government, the private businesses, active civil society to remodel our economy and make it more resilient towards natural disasters. It could enable them to adopt economic policies that can help reduce emissions and at a more individual level, the pandemic by providing an opportunity to adopt behavioral changes in our day to day lif…

The Asiatic lion is an animal belonging to the cat family. And it is the only member of the cat family. That is known to live in groups, known as sprites, because of the other members of the cat family, such as the tiger. The leopard. The clouded leopard etc. They're known to be solitary creatures. Whereas Asiatic lions are known to live in groups known as sprites, which includes the male and the female lions, and as well as the cubs. The habitat of this magnificent wild animal can be found in tropical and subtropical areas where we come across vegetation, such as open dry deciduous forests, thorny forests, dry scrubland Savanna vegetation, etc. Historically, the range of this animal was spread across the Middle East and South Asia. It was known to be found in substantial numbers in today's Saudi Arabia era. Parts of Turkey, Syria, even in parts of the South Caucasus, and the Central Asian region, and as well as the Balochistan region of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. It was…

Role of public health care in the developing countries

quality healthcare unaffordable and accessible. This is very true for developing countries, especially for countries such as India. See the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the shortcomings of India's public health care sector in the coming months, we are going to require at least a few thousand or maybe a few lakh the importance of public health care, especially in developing countries. So, it is a well-known fact that accessing private healthcare facilities is very expensive. And as a result, out of pocket expenditure increases do make it hospital beds. And we would also require advanced healthcare facilities such as intensive care units' ventilators etc. But a large proportion of these healthcare facilities are available in the private sector. And there is a critical shortage of it in the public sector. So, the abundance of advanced healthcare facilities in the private sector and the shortage in the public sector has exposed the inequalities and the divide of India's healt…

Why, policing system biased against minority

The right to evaluate the role of the political leadership, the excesses that are committed by the police forces, and he analyzes how the political narrative that is prevalent in the society can promote the police to abuse their power. This column has been written in the context of the killing of African Americans, George Floyd by white police officers in the United States at the massive anti-racism protests that the incident has triggered in the United States and as well as around the world. See political scientists and sociologists have always studied the various biases that exist in the policing system. These studies have always shown that the bias that is prevalent in the policing system is a reflection of the bias that is present in the society, and as well as in the political narrative. This policing bias could be on the basis of any ground. It could be on the basis of race, It could be on the basis of religion. It could be on the basis of caste or class, etc. These biases vary …

Climate Change and it's impact

Mother Nature continues to take care of them and give life to many species, who are living with the principles as set by nature, one species that all other species with dislike, is the human beings, Why, because of massive damages inflicted on Earth from killing animals to conquering their homes. We have been polluting the earth, and what is the result of increasing the greenhouse gases, increasing the carbon dioxide levels increase in the temperature, and, ultimately, bringing massive changes resulting in what is called as the climate change. The changes have intensified and have also worsened with the impact of the Industrial Revolution, taking the center stage. What are we discussing under this article, we will focus on the increase in the carbon dioxide concentration, where we will look at some of the key steps. And we will also look at the temperature changes, and what are the impacts of climate change. First up, let's look at cha…

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…
