एनजीटी ने जंतर मंतर में विरोध प्रदर्शनों प र लगाई रोक

नेशनल ग्रीन ट्रिब्यूनल (एनजीटी) ने सुनवाई के दौरान दिल्ली सरकार को आदेश दिया है कि वह तत्काल प्रभाव से जंतर मंतर पर विरोध प्रदर्शनों को रोके। एनजीटी ने अपने आदेश में कहा है कि जंतर मंतर पर विरोध प्रदर्शनों से ध्वनि प्रदूषण होता है। इस बाबत (प्रदूषण एवं नियंत्रण) अधिनियम, 1981 का भी हवाला दिया।

एनजीटी चेयरपर्सन जस्टिस आरएस राठौर ने दिल्ली सरकार के साथ नई दिल्ली नगर पालिका परिषद (NDMC) कहा है कि वह अस्थायी ढांचे, लाउड स्पीकर और जनता को संबोधित करने वाले सिस्टम को तत्काल हटाए।

इसी के साथ एनजीटी ने दिल्ली सरकार, एनडीएमसी और दिल्ली के पुलिस कमिश्नर को कहा है कि वे तत्काल जंतर मंतर पर सभी तरह के विरोध प्रदर्शनों पर मसलन धरना, आंदोलन, लोगों के इकट्ठा होने, जनसभा को संबोधित करने, लाउड स्पीकर इस्तेमाल करने का विकल्प ढूूंढ़ें। इन्हें रामलीला मैदान के पास ले जाएं।

इससे पहले एनजीटी ने जंतर मंतर के विकल्प के तौर पर अन्य स्थान नहीं खोजने पर दिल्ली सरकार से नाराजगी भी जताई थी। बता दें कि एक याचिका में आरोप लगाया गया था कि जंतर मंतर पर आंदोलनों से बहुत ध्वनि प्रदूषण होता है।

Why do women develop heart disease later than men?

Toronto: Investigating why heart disease generally develops later in women than men, researchers have found that the interplay between female ovarian hormones and a circadian “clock” molecule protects the heart health of women as they age.

The findings, published in the journal Cardiovascular Research, could lead to new treatment to help prevent heart disease as we grow older.

“This is the first study to demonstrate a link among female ovarian hormones, the circadian system which regulates the body’s day-night cycle, and the observation that women enjoy significant protection against heart disease when compared to men,” said Tami Martino, Professor at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.

In earlier studies, Martino’s team found that heart attacks were worse for males than for females of similar age. The research also uncovered a time-of-day effect: heart attacks in males were more severe during sleep.

This led to the idea that the circadian mechanism – tiny clocks in all of our body’s cells which regulate our 24-hour day and night processes – might work differently in male and female hearts.

To test that possibility, the researchers studied old mice with a genetic “clock” mutation that desynchronises the circadian mechanism.

The team discovered that female heart cells are actually different from those of males.

The males had worse cardiac glucose and energy profiles. By contrast, female hearts had a healthy cardiolipin profile and better energy.

However, the advantage for females was lost when the ovaries were removed, a clear sign that hormones such as estrogen protect the heart even when the circadian mechanism is disturbed, Martino said.

The findings may lead to clinical benefits for women and men, she added.

The Minister said the new urban missions launched by the Government like the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) is at the core of ensuring affordable homes to the poor and the needy while other missions like the Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) aim at enabling the much needed basic infrastructure for a decent habitat.

LG Approves Delhi Government’s Education Loan Scheme

New Delhi, Oct 4: Lt Governor Anil Baijal today approved the Delhi government’s higher education and skill development loan guarantee scheme under which students will be provided loans by banks with the government as a guarantor. Students will get education loans of up to Rs 10 lakh from banks while the government will be their guarantor.

While approving the scheme, the L-G has asked the Delhi government to incorporate all safeguards as mentioned by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in a time-bound manner.

“The Lt Governor has approved the Higher Education and Skill Development Loan Guarantee scheme of the Delhi government.

“The L-G has asked the government to incorporate all safeguards in the scheme in a time-bound manner,” a source said.

Last month, Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, had accused the Lt Governor of “blocking” the education loan scheme when the latter had asked the Delhi government to consult the Centre on it.

In response to Sisodia’s accusations, Baijal had written to the deputy chief minister, dubbing his statement as “unfortunate”.

In a letter to Sisodia, the L-G had suggested incorporation of some safeguards including ensuring of responsibilities of the lending institutions and linkage of loan with Aadhar number in the education loan scheme.

Thereafter, the Deputy CM had written a letter to Baijal, apprising him that the government has already incorporated many of safeguards and would further include ideas for betterment of the scheme.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had also appealed to the L-G to approve the scheme, saying it ensured best quality education to poor students.
