Geologists for immediate relocation of 12 villages in Ukhands Pithoragarh

first_imgPithoragarh: Geologists have identified 12 landslide-prone villages in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand that need to be relocated before the onset of monsoon.”Twelve of the 20 villages surveyed in the district so far are highly prone to landslides. They have been witnessing landslides for the past several years. It would be better if their inhabitants are shifted elsewhere before the onset of monsoon,” said Pradeep Kumar, a geologist at the Geology and Mining Department. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’A team of geologists, led by Kumar, had started their survey on December 24, 2017, the report of which has now been released. The villages that need to be immediately relocated are Senar, Kultham and Bhadeli in Munsiyari, Tankul, Chalma Chilaso, Himkhola, Kanar, Dharpangu, Suwa, Bungbung, Garguwa, Syari, Jamku and Bharbheli in Dharchula and Garzila of Berinag.

It is situated near a massive landslide zone due to which it will be under a constant threat of landslides in monsoon, which might result in damages to the families living there. Until a strong safety wall is constructed above the village, it would be threatened by massive landslides. We have also recommended that the village be saved from a constant erosion by the Ramganga river underneath, said the geologist. According to local residents, several families have left the village in the past 20 years and settled at safer places, leaving only 12 families behind. The villagers spend their nights in the open during monsoon due to the threat of landslides, said Ram Singh, a resident of Garzila village.last_img read more

De Bruyne admits that although he and other footballers don’t get much rest throughout the year, that being tired has nothing to do with his injury-plagued season.“There’s nothing I can do – it was two accidents,” said De Bruyne, according to FourFourTwo. “I wasn’t exhausted. I think in general people need a good summer break, sometimes we play for 11.5 months at a time and there is not enough time to rest.“I had a rest of about three weeks – after 12 months of playing.

I felt my knee and it pops, so you just work hard and try to be back as soon as possible.“I played the most of anyone last year – in the whole world. And I played the World Cup without a problem.“I think the most important thing is having a summer break – if you have that you can feel OK but there is always a time in someone’s career where you feel a bit less.“But I felt all right, it was just a shame that when I came back after one week, I was out for two-and-a-half months. I was happy to come back and worked really hard but after three games it happened again. So, I think it’s part of your career and in the end it’s just the way it is.”last_img read more

Benjamin Prado, an immigration rights activist with the American Friends Service Committee in San Diego fears that “Dreamers” and their entire families will be targeted for deportation.“What we see is the way many immigration agencies do their jobs; they not only go after the individual that they’re looking for but then they start questioning the rest of the family. They start what they consider collateral arrests. That’s why it’s very important, now more than ever, that people understand clearly what their constitutional rights are and that they defend their families,” Prado said.The president of San Diego State University, Sally Roush has written a letter to the White House asking President Trump to retain the DACA program.The letter read in part,  “We urge you to give greatest weight to the fact that these individuals who arrived in this country too young to have made the decision to come here, or to have understood any consequent impact on their citizenship, have in fact excelled as students and as good citizens.”  More than 400 American business leaders, including the CEO’s of AT&T, Best Buy, Amazon, Facebook and Apple have signed a letter to President Trump calling for the DACA program to be retained.They assert that the U.S. economy could lose $460 billion and $25 billion in Social Security and Medicare tax contributions.  President Trump expected to end program for young immigrantslast_img read more

Wilmington Little Leagues Latest Game Summaries

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below is a recent Wilmington Little League game summary:AAA: Astros vs. Rays on April 30 at Boutwell FieldIn by far the most exciting game of the year, in (relatively) Arctic temperatures again sending many fans to their cars to watch from the parking lot, it took last-inning heroics for the Astros to overcome a great game by the Rays who were dominant at times. The Rays had their best offensive output of the season led by Henry Almeda’s three hits and two runs. The whole lineup contributed with aggressive base running and big hits from Henry Santini and Nicholas Ryan. Defensively Jack Cyr was solid behind the plate keeping the Astros run game in check, and Jackson Griffith had a nice assist just barely throwing out a runner from the outfield. Pitching for the 2nd time this season, Henry Santini held the Astros in check while he was in the game and helped his own cause with some good defense. For the Astros, Andrew Santo fanned five in his two innings in his first start of the year. Joe Fennelly then bridged the gap to John Roofe who followed that up with two strikeouts in his inning. Dylan Costantiello fanned three in an inning, throwing some genuine heat and Tony Cummings slammed the door in the final inning. Costantiello, Connor Jamieson, and Fennelly shared catching duties. The Astros continued their very solid fielding with plays from Cummings, Fennelly, Cael Considine, Santo, Jamieson, Patrick Moriarty, Jake Gryglik, and Kevin Pruslin to name a few. Everyone was involved in the offense which included steals by Cummings, Santo, and Owen Wills among others, keeping pressure on the Rays’ defense. Gryglik hit a double and a wild triple where he outran the ball all the way around the bases. Roofe had two singles and a big double, eventually scoring the winning run. Moriarty had an early inning single and his aggressive baserunning helped set the tone for what was to come later. He also hit a towering double his next at bat. Considine continued his hot hitting with two singles and two runs while Costantiello also had two hits. Cummings and Fennelly each had a hit and a walk while Santo, Kyle Price, and Wills added singles as well. Aidan Raposa hit a sharp grounder moving the runners to help start the offensive onslaught the last two innings. Jamieson and Pruslin each had walks, Pruslin’s leading to the first run of the final rally. After his walk, clutch hits by Costantiello, Cummings, Fennelly, Considine, and Roofe finished the job.(NOTE: Summaries provided by the Wilmington Little League.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
