Britain’s Swindon town is highly polluted : Manohar Parrikar

Panaji, Dec 16 (UITV/IANS): Britain is the most polluted country in Europe and its Swindon town, which has a sizeable population of Goan expats, is also "highly polluted", Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Friday.

He was speaking during a discussion in the assembly on a private members' resolution moved by former Congress Chief Minister Ravi Naik, seeking action against those responsible for coal pollution emanating from excessive coal handling at Mormugao, the state's only major port.

"Lots of Goans stay in UK Swindon. It is a highly polluted town with high PM (particulate matter) 2.5," said Parrikar, who had earlier this week had warned NRIs and expats against advising him about Goa-related affairs, especially related to the coal pollution controversy.

The Chief Minister also termed UK highly polluted, with pollution levels four times that of India.

Parrikar said that he was against pollution, but added that those who wanted coal banned from Goa, should themselves work at reducing their carbon footprint.

"Those who are against coal and are green, they should reduce use of cars... they should go by cycle," he said.

A cup of tea can lower the risk of developing Glaucoma

New York, Dec 16 (UITV/IANS): Your morning cup of tea may have more power than you thought. Researchers have found that drinking a cup of hot tea at least once a day may lower the risk of developing glaucoma, one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide.

The discovery was made while exploring a metre-thick layer at the base of a lava flow.

"We thought it was an ignimbrite (a volcanic flow deposit)," said lead author Simon Drake, Associate Lecturer at Birkbeck University of London.

But when the team analysed the rock using an electron microprobe, they discovered that it contained rare minerals straight from outer space: vanadium-rich and niobium-rich osbornite....
