With more urbanisat

With more urbanisation comes rampant construction activity as the cities look to expand vertically.And given the large amounts of water which are utilised at construction sites the state could consider asking for a stay on construction activities until the situation improves It would also do well to consider the high court only recently imposed a stay on construction activity citing violations of municipal solid waste norms so it might do so again this time for a far more serious issue Water parks: Representational image AFP The IPL utilises several litres of water just to keep the grounds in good shape but the state currently has several water-based amusement parks which use up much more At Mumbai’s Water Kingdom or the Adlabs Imagica on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway there are a variety of rides and games people can participate in The latter for instance features 12 water-based attractions Others have ice skating rinks and adventure rides And while the organisers would insist the water is recycled just like the IPL officials insisted their water wasn’t potable the fact remains that every drop of water saved could be put to better use in the parched districts of Marathwada Burst pipelines: Over 650 million litres of water go waste everyday in Mumbai because of burst pipelines IBNLive Until as recently as last month a burst pipeline in the heart of Mumbai was shooting up precious drinking water and though litres and litres were going down the drain every second it took the civic body almost two months to fix it The real tragedy however is that this wasn’t the first such incident to take place in the state nor will it be the last The civic officials’ apathy towards its leaking pipelines and the tardiness with which they go about remedying this means that over 650 million litres of water are lost every day due to leaking pipes To put this in perspective it’s the total daily water usage of Pune that’s just been going down the drain It’s obvious where the fault lies Before going after the IPL the courts should crack the whip on errant civic officials and make them answerable for what is within their control Us: But most importantly we ourselves need to change our attitudes towards water wastage Will we give up the comfort of the shower and use a bucket for our bathing needs Do we get that leaking tap fixed immediately or do we wait for the weekend Do we run the washing machine only when we have a full load or do we get use it everyday nevertheless Do we have any form of rainwater harvesting in our buildings/societies/gardens Until we can answer yes for all these questions we don’t really have the right to point the fingers at others and what steps the government or municipal officials or even the IPL needs to take While nobody among us would be guilty of the kind of large scale water wastage we’ve been talking about it’s still death by thousand cuts A steady trickle of water going down the drain would ultimately result in large scale wastage if not checked in time And that really is the easiest one to remedy Tokyo: North Korea says it’s ready to deploy and start mass-producing a new medium-range missile capable of reaching Japan and major US military bases there following a test launch it claims confirmed the missile’s combat readiness and is an "answer" to President Donald Trump’s policies North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects the long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 (representative image) Reuters The solid-fuel Pukguksong-2 missile flew about 500 kilometers (310 miles) and reached a height of 560 kilometers (350 miles) Sunday before plunging into the Pacific Ocean North Korea’s media said more missiles will be launched in the future Trump traveling in Saudi Arabia had no immediate public comment North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered the launch and watched from an observation post state media reported Monday The Korea Central News Agency said the test verified technical aspects of the weapon system and examined its "adaptability under various battle conditions" before it is deployed to military units Kim reportedly said the launch was a success "approved the deployment of this weapon system for action" and said that it should "be rapidly mass-produced" North Korea has significantly speeded up its missile tests over the past year or so and appears to be making tangible progress toward developing an arsenal that poses a threat not only to South Korea and Japan — which together host about 80000 US troops — but also toward an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the mainland United States It’s moving ahead with its nuclear weapons program as well The North conducted two nuclear tests last year It claims one was a hydrogen bomb and the other device created a more powerful explosion than any the North has previous tested Satellite imagery suggests it could be ready to conduct its next test — which would be its sixth — at virtually any time Pyongyang’s often-stated goal is to perfect a nuclear warhead that it can put on a missile capable of hitting Washington or other US cities North Korea’s media meanwhile have stepped up their calls for even more missile launches because of what Pyongyang claims is an increasingly hostile policy by President Donald Trump "The Trump administration would be well advised to lend an ear to the voices of concern that are heard from the US and the international community" the North’s Minju Joson newspaper said in a commentary Sunday "Many more ‘Juche weapons’ capable of striking the US will be launched from this land This is the DPRK’s answer to the Trump administration’" "Juche" in this usage refers to domestically produced and DPRK is short for the North’s official name the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea In an interview with "Fox News Sunday" US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the ongoing testing is "disappointing" and "disturbing" South Korea held a National Security Council meeting after the launch and its Foreign Ministry said the launch "throws cold water" on efforts to ease tensions on the peninsula At the request of diplomats from the US Japan and South Korea a United Nations’ Security Council consultation on the missile test will take place Tuesday North Korea a week earlier had successfully tested a new midrange missile — the Hwasong 12 — that it said could carry a heavy nuclear warhead Experts said that rocket flew higher and for a longer time than any other missile previously tested by North Korea and represents another big advance toward a viable ICBM David Wright an expert on North Korea’s missiles and nuclear program who is with the Union of Concerned Scientists said the latest missile could have flown farther but was fired on a "lofted" trajectory which sends the missile high up so that it will land in the open seas rather than flying over or splashing down near neighboring countries He noted the Pukguksong-2’s solid fuel is of particular concern Solid-fuel missiles have their fuel loaded in them before being moved into place allowing them to be launched faster and with more secrecy Liquid-fuel missiles on the other hand are fueled at the launch site in a process that can last an hour and requires fueling and other vehicles That makes then easier to spot and easier to destroy
