Loktak lake ,the largest freshwater lake in the country,has now become home to a first of its kind floating elementary school.
The school was inaugurated earlier this month at Langolsabi Leikai of Champu Khangpok village,about 50km from Imphal.It was opened under an initiative undertaken by the All Loktak Lake Fisherma’s Union with the support of an NGO people Resources Development Association(PRDA).
It aims to provide education to dropouts,who were rendered homeless due to the recent evacuation of phumdis or floating biomass of vegetation,soil,and organic matter at various stages of decomposition.
The lake is referred to as the “lifeline of Manipur” as it is highly productive and many lives depend on the lake of endurance>The lake is also an important bird area as its potential breeding site for waterfowl and is a staging site for migratory birds.
This ancient lake plays an important role in the economy of Manipur.It serves as a source of water for hydropower generation,irrigation and drinking water supply.The lake is also a source of livelihood for rural fisherman who live in the surrounding areas and on phumdis,also known as “phumshongs”.
The school will be accommodating around 25 students and two teachers from the community.
Motivation is one of the most discussed topic and the way it helps one to tackle the problems they are going through.
Talking about motivation is not that easy because it is not easy to talk about based on who you are talking to because something that is motivating to a young child made not be the same for someone who is around 40.
People aspire for the same kind of motivation but everyone has there own source of motivation .
There are also people who are always talking about motivation but are themselves streesed in there own lives.
Being pumped and motivated all the time is very important to make things go better throughout ur day and my best piece advice for you can be that you can do much better than you think but the only thing you lack doing is to be patience as you have a lot of time figure out things and execute them.
People get way over excited for things that they are willing to execute but due to bad kick start and lack of motivation they are no where to reach where they wanted to reach.
“Motivation comes from you not from others who you try to be.”-Me
Astronomers have found 60 new planets near our own, boosting the chances of finding one that could support life.
A team of International scientists found a further 54 potential planets ,meaning that in all the researches might have discovered a full 114 planets.And at least some of those might be like Earth,and able to support life ,the researchers have said.
The observations were part of the Lick-Carnegie Exo-planet Survey,which was started in 1996 by astronomers Steve Vogt and Geoffrey Marcy from the University of California and Paul Butler,from the Carnegie Institute of Science, in washington.
Astronomers released the largest ever compilation of exoplanet detecting observations made using a technique called the radial velocity method.The radial velocity method takes advantage of the fact that the planet’s gravity also affects the star.Astronomers are able to use sophisticated tools to detect the tiny wobble the planet induces as its gravity tugs on the star.
The virtual mountain of data was gathered as a part of a two decade radial velocity planet hunting programme that uses a spectrometer called HIRES,mounted on the 10-metre Keck-I telescope of the WM Keck Observatory atop Mauna Kea in Hawaii.
The compilation includes almost 61000 individual measurements made of more than 1600 stars.By making the data public , the team is offering unprecedented access to one of the best exoplanet searches in the world.
The Paralympic Games is a major international multi-sport event involving atheletes with a range of disabilities including impaired muscle power,impaired passive range of movement,limb deficiency,leglength difference,short stature,hypertonia,alaxia,athetosis,vision impairment and intellectual impairment.
The Paralympic has grown from a small gathering of British World War-II veterans in 1948 to one of the largest international sporting events by the early 21st century.
There are 22 sports on the summer paralympics program and 5 sports ont the winter paralympics program.These games are conducted every four years just as the Olympics.
In 2001 the International Olympics commitee signed an agreement which guaranteed that host cities would be contracted to manage both the games.
During recent RIO Paralympics four Indian atheletes Devendra JhaJharia,MAriyappan Thangavelu ,Deepa Malik and Varun Singh Bhati won the Gold Medal in Men’s Javelin throw,gold in Men’s high jump ,silver in woman’s shot put and Bronze in Men’s high jump respectively
Ganga is not only a river but it is the soul of Indian culture and is considered as Goddess.The river originates at Gangotri glacier on the southern slopes of the Himalayas ,some 14,000 feet above the sea level.
River Ganga is about 157 miles long(2506 km).
The headwaters of the Ganges comprise many small streams of which the six longest and their five confluences are considered scared.
The six headstreams are Alaknanda,Dhauliganga,Nandakini,Pindar,Mandakini, andBhagirathi.
The river is home for more than 140 different species of fish and 90 different species of amphibians,many of which are near extinction today . Ganga is also the home for fresh water dolphins and Ganges sharks,both of which are endangered species with Ganges shark being critically endangered.
The mouth of River Ganga forms a vast Sunderban delta,which is the largest Delta in the world.The Ganga water has self cleaning properties due to the presence of bacteriophage virus.
Being an immigrant is not easy at all,because you and your family need to just get adopted and used to the culture and the society and always think about the savings.
Being an immigrant is not an easy job but if you have enough cash ,it might sometimes play the game you wanted to.Children wo are immigrants always face a lot of problems with all the cultural and societal changes they are going through.
Presently the situation of immigrant and their life’s have got better as people are now getting global and are adapting to a new place very easily.
But things were not as good during the time world war’s.People had to find ways to get out their land to go to other places as an immigrant,during those days black and white discrimination was often seen among various groups of people.
Though the things are now getting better than before it makes all of us realize that we are moving towards a greater tomorrow where everything is getting global and everyone has a global perspective of life ,culture and society.
Lightning is an electric current.Within a thunder-cloud way up int he sky,many small bits of ice bump into each other as they move around the air.All of those collisions create an electric charge.
The positive charges or protons form at the top of the cloud and the negative charges or electrons form at the bottom of the cloud.
Lightning is a case of opportunities attracting.The negative charges in the cloud are attracted to the positive charge of the earth’s surface.
When the charges become strong enough,electricity flows from the negatively charged cloud to the positively charged surface of the Earth,creating a lightning bolt.
Skills are cheap but passion is priceles.This is a quote by @garyvee who tries to explain people about the work other peeps are doing and how they are getting it done.Many and most of the people in the world are doing jobs they hate are not living there life’s to the fullest making it worse than ever without even thinking of the consequence that the only have one life..
My piece of advice to all you reading here is that first of all you need to stop doing things you hate right away and do sh*t you love.If you are not sure with want to do then the thing you need to do is go do something you hate because this will make you to broken from the heart and you will probably get up with something great that you find belongs to you.
Talking to yourself is very important I call it Self-reflection and self-awareness because everyone on this Earth should get to know themselves and know who they are and where they stand to the whole world.
Thinking of something telling your friends that I am going to this and that is just not the right way you need to make them know who you are actually and execute what you want to do and then go and punch them on there face telling them that I outworked you and achieved my goal because while you were sleeping I was grinding.
Have a greedy attitude towards things,it will always make you get them with ease because at the end it comes out to how bad you want it?
The Indian long pepper,widely popular for spicing up food,may soon be used as a potential cancer treatment drug,according to a new study.
The Indian long pepper contains a chemical that could stop your body from producing an enzyme that is commonly found in tumors in large numbers,according to the study in Journal of Biological chemistry.
UT Southwestern Medical center scientists have uncovered the chemical process behind anti-cancer properties of a spicy Indian pepper plant called the long pepper,whose suspected medicinal properties date back thousands of years.
The secret lies in a chemical called Piperlongumine(PL),which has shown activity against cancer.
The supermoon is a phenomenon when the moon which follows an elliptical orbit around the earth,reach a point closer than usual.
A full moon occures each month when the Sun,Earth and Moon line up,with the Moon on the side of the Earth opposite to the Sun.
The term “Supermoon” is used to describe a full moon as it perigee-the point in the Moon’s orbit when it is closest to Earth,causing it to appear up to 14%bigger and 30% brighter in the sky.
December’s full moon is also known in the Northern hemisphere as the full cold moon and the long Night’s moon.
the most recent supermoon occurrence was on December 14,2016.The pervious one was ,on November 14,2016 and was the closest Supermoon since January 26,1948, and will not be surpassed untill November 25,2034.
The closest Supermoon of the century will occur December 6,2052.The next Supermoon will be on May 25,2017.
