By Namrata Sarkar| Wednesday , 7th September Over the next few days, a large rain band that spans four Australian states is predicted to bring with it torrential downpours, hail, and thunderstorms. As the band continues to travel over the nation’s east, the Bureau of Meteorology has issued severe weather warnings for people of SA, NSW, QLD, and VIC. The Bureau also issued a warning, predicting that a cold front will pass over the east coast on Wednesday night and remain there through much of Thursday. According to BOM, “severe storms may result in torrential rainfall, destructive winds, and huge hail.” “Renewal or protracted flooding may result from rainfall over flood-affected areas.” As the erratic weather generates significant swells, hazardous surf warnings are also in effect for Queensland and NSW. Source : Twitter Highlights of the event In the following days, a large rain band that is moving across the nation and towards the east coast is expected to produce violent thunderstorms, flash flooding, and strong winds. Thunderstorms and flooding were predicted to be most severe in inland Queensland and northern New South Wales.On Wednesday night, the rain band was predicted to enter Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria’s western regions before advancing across the remaining eastern states on Thursday. According to senior meteorologist Christie Johnson with the Bureau of Meteorology, between 15 and 40mm of widespread rainfall was predicted, some of it in already-wet areas. Although this may not seem like much rain, since much of it will be falling over already saturated and flooded areas, we anticipate fresh river rises and the potential prolongation of present flooding, she said. We now have a lot of flood warnings in effect, especially in inland NSW, southernQueensland, and portions of Victoria, and we will issue more flood watches and warnings as needed, she continued.The BoM has issued minor to moderate flood warnings for the Bogan, Lachlan, Murrumbidgee, Murray, and Edward rivers, in addition to a minor flood warning for the Macquarie River. In especially over elevated locations, it warned that the system might produce strong wind gusts and hail. South Australia and the southernmost reaches of the Northern Territory had previously experienced the cold front. The front and tropical moisture from the Indian Ocean and Coral Sea were expected to combine to develop the system on Wednesday afternoon over eastern South Australia and the south-eastern Northern Territory. Source : Twitter In Jhonson’s point of view According to Johnson, Australia is currently experiencing a negative Indian Ocean Dipole event, which is responsible for the increased rate of rainfall along the east coast.The sea surface temperatures all around Australia are likewise higher than typical. Because of these factors, a lot of moisture is readily available and might be sucked into these weather systems as they move through the nation, according to the expert. “The forecast for October to December indicates that most of eastern Australia will see wetter-than-average conditions.”Intense thunderstorms and potentially huge hailstones are predicted to move across the eastern states as part of a gigantic rain belt that will stretch for 2000 km. According to Sky News, a cold front is anticipated to strike Far West NSW on Wednesday in the afternoon. The region will have widespread rain and thunderstorms, according to meteorologist Alison Osborne, while the region’s most significant rainfall will…

Shmyhal is the first senior Ukrainian official to travel to Germany in months, signalling a thawing of tensions between Berlin and Kyiv following a difficult period. Shmyhal met with President Frank-Walter Steinmeier during his first stop on his journey, when they “discussed the military situation, tightening sanctions, and the necessity to deliver arms for Ukraine,” according to his tweet. Shmyhal also expressed gratitude to Germany for its “solidarity and support with Ukrainians” before meeting with chancellor Olaf Scholz later on Sunday. According to the spokesman for the German president, Steinmeier told Shmyhal that Germany will “continue to stand steadfastly by Ukraine’s side.” SOURCE : Twitter After a dispute broke out in April when Kyiv rejected Steinmeier’s invitation to visit Ukraine, the visit of the Ukrainian prime minister signalled a drastic shift in the relationship’s tenor. Former foreign minister Steinmeier, a member of Scholz’s Social Democratic Party, had been shunned because of his years-long detente policy toward Moscow, which he has since admitted was a mistake in the wake of the start of the war. Highlights of the event in Russia – Ukraine Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, has been compelled by President Volodymyr Zelensky to create a new set of measures, including a restriction on giving visas to anyone from Europe. According to Vitaliy Kim, the governor of Mykolaiv, soldiers have attacked many residential targets in the city overnight. According to him, dwellings, three hospitals, two educational buildings, a hotel, and a museum were all devastated. Pictures of the destruction are already being released.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station is now only using a reserve line after being cut off from its final major power line to the grid. According to local-backed officials, there had been prior reports that the plant in south-eastern Ukraine had been shut down in the early hours of Saturday due to persistent shelling that had broken a crucial power connection. Sweden’s initiatives Sweden has stated that it will give Nordic and Baltic energy businesses liquidity guarantees worth “billions of dollars” in an effort to avert a financial disaster brought on by Europe’s energy shortage. Siemens Energy has offered to assist in repairing damaged Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline equipment, according to the energy business Gazprom, but the company has asserted that there is no place accessible for them to do the operation. The economic commissioner, Paolo Gentiloni, stated that the European Union expects to uphold existing energy contracts but is ready to take on the challenge if it does not. After the G7 finance ministers declared they intended to place a price ceiling on oil to reduce “capacity to pay its war of aggression,” Gazprom announced that the Nord Stream pipeline 1 would not restart.

Hawaii Power Plant AES Corporation coal plant shut down on Thursday after 30 years of operation. The final coal shipment arrived in the islands at the end of July. Up to onefifth of the electricity used on Oahu, the state’s most populated island and home to approximately 1.5 million people, was generated by this facility.In an interview with The Associated Press, Hawaii Governor David Ige stated that “it really is about decreasing greenhouse gases.” “And one of the biggest emitters is this coal-burning facility. By turning it off, we will stop the annual emission of 1.5 million metric tonnes of greenhouse gases.” The Hawaiian chain has experienced the cascading effects of climate change, just like other Pacific islands. Coral reefs in the state are being destroyed by bleaching brought on by rising ocean temperatures, a rapid rise in sea level, more powerful storms, and dryness, which raises the state’s danger of wildfires. A bill prohibiting the use of coal for the production of energy at the beginning of 2023 was passed by the Hawaiin Legislature in 2020. Hawaii was the first state to set a required transition to 100% renewable energy by the year 2045. Critics contend that while eliminating the state’s dirtiest energy source in the long run is a wise decision, doing so now is not. Due to contract concerns, supply chain issues related to the pandemic, and delays in obtaining permits, renewable energy sources intended to replace coal energy are not yet operational. As a result, the state will burn more expensive oil, which is only marginally less harmful than coal. source : Twitter Democratic state senator Glenn Wakai, who serves as chair of the Committee on Economic Development, Tourism, and Technology, stated, “If you are a believer that climate change will cease because we shut down this coal plant, this is a beautiful day for you.” However, if you have to pay an electrical bill, today is a terrible day for you. Consumers who already pay the highest energy and living costs in the country will see an increase in electricity rates as a result of the demise of coal and the rising price of oil. Ratepayers were expected to receive a 7% increase in their bills, but Hawaiian Electric Company amended that projection down to 4% on Thursday due to a decline in oil costs. The transition from the least expensive fossil fuel to the most expensive fossil fuel is what we’re doing, according to Wakai. Additionally, geopolitical problems with oil access and pricing will be a problem. In light of the closing of the AES coal plant, Hawaii has now joined the list of states without any significant coalfired power plants, according to statistics from the organisation Global Energy Monitor, which promotes the switch to renewable energy worldwide. There have never been any coal-fired power facilities in Vermont or Rhode Island. While a few other states had passed laws, Hawaii is the first to fully impose a ban on coal. The first state to enact a ban, Oregon, passed a bill in 2015, although won’t take effect until 2035. The 2020 coal prohibition in Washington State takes effect in 2025. States that have imposed restrictions on the development of new coal fired power facilities include California, Maine, and Texas. source : Twitter According to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, about two thirds of Hawaii’s electricity was produced by oil in 2021. Hawaii is the state most dependent on petroleum as a result, despite its attempts to quickly switch to renewable energy. In Hawaii, renewable energy sources like wind, solar, hydroelectricity, and geothermal energy now provide about 40% of the state’s energy needs. Coal is increasing. The cost is increasing, “He remarked of the supply Hawaii receives from Indonesian rainforests that have been clear-cut. “U.S. coal wouldn’t be the cheapest energy source on the grid if we were using it,” Why would Hawaii, a little American state in the Pacific, strive to set the pace for switching to sustainable energy? The repercussions of climate change are already being felt, Glenn said.”If we are not ready and able to act on our own, it is neither fair nor right to ask other countries or states to do so. We drown if we don’t.” Read More:- https://asianatimes.com/ins-vikrant-india-aircraft-carrier-commissioned/
By Namrata Sarkar | Wednesday 31st Aug , 2022 Seema Patra, the head of the BJP’s Jharkhand branch, has been placed on administrative leave after being charged of torturing, assaulting, and locking up her domestic assistance for eight years.

The victim, Sunita, was allegedly beaten with a hot pan and iron rods and made to lick the urine off the floor. Sunita has numerous injuries on her body. source: Twitter Sunita was unable to stand by herself because she was imprisoned in a chamber without food or drink and had her teeth shattered with an iron rod as well. At the moment, she is receiving care at RIMS in Ranchi.On August 22, Ranchi Police freed the victim from the BJP leader’s residence. Seema Patra, a former Jharkhand-based IAS officer who is also his wife, has not yet been detained. The event has been reported to the National Commission for Women (NCW). Sunita is a resident of a village in Gumla and is of tribal descent. She was hired to work as a domestic helper in the Patras’ home about ten years ago. Later, she and the couple’s daughter Vatsala Patra were dispatched to Delhi. When Vatsala was transferred from Delhi to Ranchi, Sunita returned there and stayed at BJP’S Seema’s residence. If Sunita’s urine unintentionally spilled outside of the room, she had to wipe it up by licking it with her mouth, according to the news agency IANS. According to reports, Ayushman, Patra’s son, sought to assist the victim and told his buddy Vivek Baski, a personnel department officer in the Jharkhand government, about the events that had taken place at home. Sunita then told Vivek about her trauma, and after Vivek complained to Deputy Commissioner Rahul Kumar Sinha, Sunita was saved. source : Twitter According to a tweet from The Dalit Voice, Sunita was repeatedly burned with iron rods while being forced to “lick urine.” The user also posted a video of Sunita lying on a hospital bed, clearly hurt. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EVENT Seema Patra, a suspended BJP politician, has been taken into custody by Ranchi police. The torture of Seema Patra’s tribal maid is alleged to have taken place. Later that day, she would appear in court. At the Agoda police station in Ranchi, a case was filed against Patra, the spouse of former IAS officer Maheshwar Patra, under the pertinent sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the SCST Act, 1989. Tuesday, the court used Section 164 to record Sunita’s testimony. After Seema Patra was charged with mistreating her housekeeper, the Jharkhand BJP placed her on indefinite leave. Seema Patra was captured by Ranchi police as she attempted to flee the city on the road after they had conducted many raids to arrest her. Agora police in Ranchi began looking for Seema Patra after she ran away out of dread of being apprehended by the police. The domestic helper Sunita was allegedly made to scrub the toilet with her tongue. Sunita’s body was covered with numerous wounds. She claims Seema Patra once burned her with hot objects. WHO IS SEEMA PATRA? The state convener of the “Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao” movement is Seema Patra. She was a part of the BJP’s women’s wing and is Maheshwar Patra’s wife, an ex-IAS officer. Ayushman Patra, Seema Patra’s son, tried to protect the maid when he was working at the state secretariat, and he told his friend Vivek Baske about the events at home. Sunita was saved with his assistance after she, at last, told Vivek about her tragedy. The allegations that Seema Patra had harassed her domestic worker in Jharkhand were brought to the attention of the National Commission for Women. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXzK56yKxYU NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma said in a statement that the panel has written to the DGP of Jharkhand requesting that the accused be taken into custody if the charges are proven to be genuine. Rekha Sharma has stated, “The BJP Commission has also requested a fair and timely probe on the matter.
By Namrata Sarkar |Tue 30th August , 2022 Climate Change Minister Sherry Rehman stated on Monday that a third of Pakistan is underwater due to flooding brought on by record-breaking monsoon rains, describing the situation as “a calamity of unthinkable proportions.” Updates on the flood so far One in seven Pakistanis, according to officials, have been impacted by the floods, which have killed 1,136 people since the monsoon season began in June. One thirdof Pakistan has been submerged by monsoon rains that have fallen nonstop since June, killing more than 1,100 people and affecting tens of millions more Pakistanis. Ahsan Iqbal, the country’s minister of planning and development, has estimated that more than €10 billion will be required to restore and reconstruct the infrastructure that was destroyed by the floods.He claimed that there has been extensive destruction, “particularly in the telecommunications, highways, agriculture, and livelihood sectors.” According to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the rains were “unprecedented in 30 years,” and they wrecked massive tracts of farmland that were crucial to the nation’s economy in addition to destroying or seriously damaging more than a million dwellings. Source : Twitter A €160 million appeal has been launched by the UN and the Pakistani government to assist pay for emergency aid. To help the more than 33 million people, or one in seven Pakistanis, who have been affected by the floods, government and aid organisations are working slowly. The effort is challenging because several roads and bridges have been entirely destroyed by the floodwaters, shutting off some towns. Highlights of the event The few remaining dry areas in the south and west force the displaced to swarm onto elevated highways or trains in order to escape the flood plains. The incidents have been referred to as “a massive humanitarian calamity” and “apocalyptic” by Pakistan’s minister of the environment, Sherry Rehman. On the Indian subcontinent, the monsoon, which typically lasts from June to September, is crucial for irrigating crops and replenishing water supplies. But every year, it also brings its fair share of tragedy and destruction. Pakistani leaders attribute the extreme weather on climate change and claim that their nation is suffering as a result of other countries’ negligent environmental practises. “We have been the hottest area on the earth this year with temperatures of 53 degrees and above. The glaciers broke, and three times as much water fell during the outburst floods as usual. “So, there has only been a 300% growth.The glacier melting that we observed is actually a result of global warming, according to Rehman. She also anticipated a surge in fatalities due to the continued isolation of many northern regions of the nation, where dozens of rivers are still fully flooded. Rehman reiterated the government’s request for aid from other nations while also accusing important industrialised nations for contributing to global warming. Source : Twitter Pakistan ranks seventh on a list of nations the NGO Germanwatch considers most vulnerable to extreme weather brought on by climate change, while producing less than 1% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. “The major emitters need to reassess their procedures. We have reached a clearly defined threshold “She spoke. Large tracts of cropland in the provinces of southern Sindh and western Balochistan are now nothing but watery landscapes, while in the north, wild mountain rivers have washed away highways and bridges. On flights from Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, the first foreign aid started to trickle into Pakistan on Monday. This marked the beginning of a massive relief operation to lessen the effects of the disaster, which has affected about 33 million people and submerged large portions of the nation. As many settlements in the hilly northern areas are shut off by flood-swollen rivers that wiped away roads and bridges, the death toll from the deluges, which has now reached at least 1,061, is expected to grow. In the north, where dangerous flying circumstances result from steep hills and valleys, the army’s helicopters were straining to rescue people and bring them to safety. Source : Twitter In the north, where dangerous flying circumstances result from steep hills and valleys, the army’s helicopters were straining to rescue people and bring them to safety. Numerous rivers in the region, a popular tourist destination, have overflowed their banks, destroying dozens of structures, including a 150-room hotel that collapsed into a roaring torrent. As the “monster monsoon” of this year began to subside, Pakistan’s climate minister issued a warning that up to one-third of the country would be under water. https://youtu.be/bgBUrbnSTE4
