LPG has doubled to Rs 819 per cylinder in the last seven years while the increase in taxes on petrol and diesel has swelled collections by over 459 per cent, Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Monday. In written replies to a spate of questions on rising fuel prices in the Lok Sabha, Pradhan said the retail selling price of domestic gas was Rs 410.5 per 14.2-kg cylinder on March 1, 2014. This month, the same cylinder costs Rs 819. Small price hikes over the past couple of years have eliminated subsidy on cooking gas as well as PDS kerosene. Pradhan said the price of domestic subsidised LPG has been raised during the last few months. It cost Rs 594 per cylinder in December 2020 and now is priced at Rs 819. Similarly, kerosene sold to the poor through the public distribution system (PDS) has risen from Rs 14.96 per litre in March 2014 to Rs 35.35 this month, he said. Petrol and diesel prices too are at an all-time high across the country. The rates, which vary from … [Read more...] about LPG price double in 7 yrs; tax collection on petrol, diesel jumps 459%: Pradhan

Ontario plans to revamp Grade 9 — with an eye to ending streaming in the first, “critical” year of high school — as part of its new equity plan that will also compel school boards to collect detailed data on everything from staff hires to student suspensions. Education Minister Mitzie Hunter said in an interview that what happens now in Grade 9 — where students are streamed into the more theoretical academic, or the more hands-on applied courses — is a concern because teens in applied classes are less likely to finish high school or go on to post-secondary education. “We talk about streaming as a really key aspect of our equity action plan, taking a fresh look at Grade 9,” Hunter said. “We know that Grade 9 is a critical year in terms of transition for students. We want to see Grade 9 as a year where students can explore their pathways and get excited about their pathways. We do not want it to be a year where students become demotivated and disengaged in school.” While … [Read more...] about Ontario school boards to collect detailed data on hiring, suspensions

Source: Egor Kamelev, Pexels free download. Last year essay I posted an essay called Some Truths About the Fascinating Lives of Wasps published in New Scientist by Richard Jones called "Not so Waspish," with the subtitle "They are one of the least-loved animals, but wasps deserve our affection. It's time for a rebranding." The online version is titled " Wasps may benefit us as much as bees. Could we learn to love them? " with the subtitle "We love to hate wasps, but they pollinate flowers, kill off pests and their venom might even help us treat cancer." 1 I learned a lot about wasps from Jones' essay and the references he provides, and wanted to learn more about these misunderstood insects. So, I was pleased to read a book called Wasps: The Astonishing Diversity of a Misunderstood Insect by Eric R. Eaton, a writer, editor, and consultant who has worked as an entomologist for many institutions. 2 Here's what he had to say about his highly informative and … [Read more...] about Wasps: The Astonishing Diversity of a Misunderstood Insect
As a nation simultaneously struggling with a healthcare pandemic, an economic crisis, and significant social justice issues, heightened levels of anxiety and stress have become the norm. That’s why now is a critical time to gain a better understanding of PTSD —and how to recognize its symptoms in ourselves and those around us. As with many emotional and mental disorders, PTSD can come with a stigma that can itself be dangerous, as stigma can cause sufferers to keep quiet and avoid getting help. These stigmas are fueled by misinformation in American discourse, and it’s high time to debunk some of the most common among them. Myth 1: PTSD is an invisible disease that is all in someone’s head. False. The absence of visible symptoms makes PTSD hard to see with the naked eye. The invisible wound can make it hard for family and friends to believe it’s real, especially if the sufferer hasn’t personally experienced a violent or traumatic event. While it’s true that you … [Read more...] about 5 Common Myths About PTSD

The past year of pandemic precautions and cutbacks has radically altered the way the East Baton Rouge Public Defender’s Office works to represent clients. It is not the first time public defense has weathered a crisis. When much of the parish flooded in 2016, the office suffered: financially with fewer traffic tickets that provide much of the local public defense revenue, and personally with staffers losing their homes. However, the practice of defending clients, while hampered, went back to normal in about a month, according to Lindsay Blouin, deputy district defender. During the pandemic, setbacks have lingered and “normal” has a different meaning. “The pandemic has totally impacted how we represent people,” Blouin said. “It’s changed how we’ve practiced as public defenders. Financially, things are bad — but they’ve been bad.” Future of public defense threatened with fiscal collapse as coronavirus closes courts across state The Louisiana Public Defender Board … [Read more...] about During chaos of pandemic year, EBR public defenders face client restrictions, financial woes
Living near the ocean is a dream for many people. But in recent years, the effects of climate change have made it a dicey proposition. Hurricanes have become more intense , leading to bigger storm surges and heavier rainfall that pound coastlines, erode beaches, and destroy homes. That storm threat has been compounded by so-called nuisance flooding that occurs during high tides, even during calm weather and clear skies. A new study shows that nuisance flooding is exacerbated by dredging and the construction of piers and jetties that were intended to make coastal living easier but are in fact redirecting the flow of incoming ocean water and making high tides higher than ever before. Published Friday in the journal Science Advances , the study compared high and low tide ranges measured during the past 70 years with an older database of historic tidal measurements made in the mid-1800s and recently found in stacks of old boxes stored in an annex of the National Archives in … [Read more...] about The Tide Is High–and Getting Higher
