Vancouvers detached homes edge toward buyers market as condos favour sellers

first_imgVANCOUVER – Condo and townhouse sales in Vancouver are firmly in a seller’s market, while the market for detached homes is edging toward a buyer’s market, new figures from The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver suggest.In September, the sales-to-active-listings ratio was 14.6 per cent for detached homes, 42.3 per cent for townhomes and 60.4 per cent for apartments, according to the REBGV.“Downward pressure on home prices does occur when the ratio typically dips below around 12 per cent for a constant period,” said Jill Oudil, board president.For instance, that could mean during a particular month there are three sales for 25 active listings.“When there is a downward pressure on prices, it becomes more of a buyer’s market,” she said.The opposite happens with upward pressure on prices and the creation of a seller’s market, when the ratio stays above 20 per cent for several months, the REBGV said.“I think it’s just a bit of a changing market right now,” Oudil said, adding more house hunters are looking at condos and townhomes due to affordability issues, which reduces the number of people looking for detached homes.The MLS Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver was $1,037,300 in September, up 10.9 per cent compared with a year ago.The demand for condos and townhouses helped push the number of sales in September 13.1 per cent above the 10-year historical average for the month.There were 2,821 homes sold in the region last month, according to the board — up 25.2 per cent from 2,253 in Sept. 2016. Detached homes made up 30 per cent of last month’s sales.Sales slipped 7.3 per cent from the 3,043 homes sold in August.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitterlast_img read more

Crimes are going unsolved because forensic science services are in crisis a

Lord Patel has warned that urgent reform is needed Forensic science features in a wide range of offences But the report also identified worrying problems in the way defendants were being prevented from challenging forensic evidence put before the courts.Cuts in legal aid budgets means that suspects are not always able to afford to appoint experts to check forensic evidence is of the highest standard, risking miscarriages of justice.The committee accused the Home Office and Ministry of justice of “abdicating responsibility” and showing no leadership over the problems.And the report criticised the Government over an “embarrassing” delay in giving the Forensic Science Regulator statutory powers that were promised in 2012.Lord Patel said: “Our forensic science provision has now reached breaking point and a complete overhaul is needed.”He added: “Unless these failings are recognised and changes made, public trust in forensic science evidence will continue to be lost and confidence in the justice system will be threatened. Crimes may go unsolved and the number of miscarriages of justice may increase.” As a result criminals including rapists and even killers, could be escaping justice due to flawed investigations and prosecutions.Recent figures also suggested that two thirds of reported burglary investigations were now closed by the police without a suspect being identified, with a “lack of forensic opportunities” often being cited as the reason.Lord Patel said problems with the forensic science industry was “driving down the ability for police forces to investigate offences such as burglary” while also making it harder to detect other crimes. Lord Patel has warned that urgent reform is needed Serious crimes are going unsolved and innocent people are being wrongly convicted due to a “crisis” in the forensic science industry in England and Wales, a damning report has found.Lords on the Science and Technology Committee have warned that “justice will be in jeopardy” unless there is a radical overhaul in the quality and delivery of the service.Forensic evidence, which can include everything from fingerprints to complex DNA profiles, constitutes a major part of modern criminal investigations and can be crucial to the success of a prosecution.But seven years after the Forensic Science Service was privatised amid concerns over efficiency, the system has been described as being in complete crisis, with a lack of funding and an absence of leadership contributing to the problems.In 2008 national spending on the forensic science service totalled £120 million, but last year that had fallen to just £50 million.Lord Patel, the chair of the committee, said the issues Peers had identified meant it was “hard to have complete confidence that every criminal investigation was pursued with the correct degree of scrutiny”.

Putin warns terrorists face total destruction

first_imgPRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN has warned “terrorists” they face total destruction, after Russia was hit by double suicide bombings in its southern city of Volgograd that claimed 34 lives. Dear friends, we bow our heads in front of the victims of the terrible acts of terror. I am sure we will toughly and consistently continue to fight against terrorists until their total destruction.Putin made the comments in a New Year’s address from the Far Eastern Russian city of Khabarovsk, which is seven hours ahead of Moscow and where he met with victims of devastating summer floods.“In the current year, we have encountered problems and have been challenged by serious experiences, including ones like the inhuman acts of terror in Volgograd,” Putin was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.Curiously, his New Year’s address that was broadcast earlier to the inhabitants of Russia’s furthest flung time zones of Magadan and Kamchatka did not mention the Volgograd attacks.Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that Putin had departed from the traditional New Year’s address, which is normally recorded days in advance at the Kremlin.“Here (in Khabarovsk) he made his New Year’s wishes and this became his New Year’s address. So he basically broke a long-standing tradition.”- © AFP, 2013Read: Death toll from Russian suicide bombings rises to 33>last_img read more

Putting electricity cables underground will add 3 to electricity bills over the

first_imgEIRGRID’S DEADLINE FOR for public submissions on the Gridlink project which will see 1,300 electricity pylons built between Munster and Leinster expires today.Both the Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for Communications Pat Rabbitte have both weighed in on the national controversy over plans to erect new electricity pylons carrying overhead power cables.Speaking this morning on Newstalk Breakfast, Pat Rabbitte said that if underground cables are installed rather than overhead pylons then “electricity consumers must be prepared to take the hit on their bills over the next 50 years”. He said that that while underground cables are “feasible” the extra cost will go “onto the bills of you and I and every other domestic customer”.Additional costHe said that the Energy Regulator has investigated what the additional cost will be and said they calculated that over all three legs of the Eirgrid programme it would cost an additional €2 billion and would add 3 per cent to consumer electricity bills over the next 50 years.When asked if people who allow pylons be built on their land be compensated, he said that people who have roads build through their lands are compensated and it was something that Eirgrid would be assessing, but indicated that it was very much a possibility they would be.Rabbitte added that there were no health concerns over the building of pylons, as far as he is concerned, adding that a national agency of government, like that of Eirgrid, has no vested interest in exposing people to risk.IntrusionThe minister said reiterated his comment that there has to be a “trade off” between modern civilization and intrusion on the way we live. “We can’t not have power and electricity,” he said.When asked would he like to live next to a pylon, he said that as he lives in Clondalkin, it would be difficult to get the room to build a poll let alone a pylon. “I don’t think it helps the debate by me answering the question,” he said.The construction of electricity pylons across the country are coming under increased criticism by opposition groups, with a number of protests taking place.The deadline for submissions on this third round of public consultation conducted by Eirgrid is 5pm today.

Pistorius numb with shock and grief says uncle

first_imgAfter consulting with legal representatives, we deeply regret the allegation of premeditated murder. We have no doubt there is no substance to the allegation and that the state’s own case, including its own forensic evidence, strongly refutes any possibility of a premeditated murder or murder as such.The track star’s arrest in the killing of 29-year-old Steenkamp shocked South Africa, where Pistorius was a national hero dubbed the Blade Runner for his high-tech prosthetics and revered for overcoming his disability to compete in the London Games.She was discovered in a pool of blood before dawn on Thursday by police called to Pistorius’ upscale home in a gated community in Pretoria. Authorities said she had been shot four times, and a 9mm pistol was recovered at the home.Pistorius remains held at a police station pending a bail hearing Tuesday. Police have already said they’ll oppose Pistorius being released before trial. A premeditated murder charge also makes it more difficult for his defence team to get bail.South African athlete Oscar Pistorius at the end of court proceedings, in Pretoria. Pic: Antoine de Ras/AP/Press Association ImagesCourtThere will be a variety of hearings before Pistorius, 26, could go on trial. In South Africa, there are no juries, so a judge ultimately would decide Pistorius’ guilt or innocence, sometimes with the advice of two advisers. At an initial hearing Friday, Pistorius sobbed and held his head in his hands at times. He has yet to enter a plea in the case.The family denial that Pistorius committed murder doesn’t necessarily mean that they say he didn’t shoot her, as murder is a legal term. Initial speculation immediately after the shooting Thursday suggested that it could have been accidental, though police say they don’t believe that.Arnold Pistorius did not discuss the circumstances of the shooting, but said that his nephew and Steenkamp had become very close since they started dating in November.They had plans together and Oscar was happier in his private life than he had been for a long timeAs Arnold Pistorius read his statement, Pistorius’ sister Aimee stood nearby and broke down in tears at one point. Her uncle stopped reading for a moment to put his arms around her. Pistorius remains very close with his uncle, a man he once lived with as a teenager.“Words cannot adequately describe our feelings,” his uncle said.The lives of our entire family have been turned upside down forever by this unimaginable human tragedy and Reeva’s family have suffered a terrible loss. As a family we are trying to be strong and supportive to Oscar as any close family would be in these dreadful circumstances.Reeva SteenkampSince news of the slaying, shock waves have rippled across South Africa, a nation of 50 million where nearly 50 people are killed each day, one of the world’s highest murder rates. UN  statistics say the nation has the second highest rate of shooting deaths in the world, behind only Colombia. Others have focused their attention on Pistorius and his fascination with fast cars, cage fighting and firearms.Steenkamp, who graduated from law school, is known in South Africa for appearing in commercials and as a bikini-clad model in men’s magazines.On Saturday, South Africa’s state broadcaster SABC planned to air a reality TV show featuring the model. Another portion of the show released earlier Saturday included a clip of her swimming with two dolphins, which tap her on the cheek with their snouts.Read: Reeva Steenkamp’s reality show to go ahead> OLYMPIC ATHLETE OSCAR Pistorius is “numb with shock, as well as grief” after the shooting death of his model girlfriend at his home in South Africa, the runner’s uncle said Saturday, as his family strongly refuted prosecutors’ claims that he murdered her.Arnold Pistorius spoke with The Associated Press and two other South African journalists about his nephew’s arrest in the killing of Reeva Steenkamp, who was shot four times on the morning of Valentine’s Day. Arnold Pistorius spoke to reporters from his three-story home in the eastern suburbs of South Africa’s capital, Pretoria.StatementThe statement, the first on camera and directly made in person by Pistorius’ family, also came out strongly against prosecutors seeking to upgrade the charge against Pistorius to one of premeditated murder, which carries a sentence of life in prison.Arnold Pistorius, right, uncle of Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius, makes a statement to selected press in Pretoria, South Africa.

METRO Puts 35 Billion Bond Issue On The Ballot To Fund Transit

first_imgHarris County voters will soon be asked to approve a $3.5 billion bond issue to pay for a long list of projects designed to address a growing population, including light rail expansion, bus rapid transit and infrastructure improvements.As part of its METRONext initiative, Houston’s transit agency wants to build about 75 miles of bus rapid transit routes, including a corridor to Bush Intercontinental Airport.Plans also call for about 16 miles of new light rail. There would be a line to Hobby Airport along with an extension of the Red Line to the North Shepherd Park and Ride.METRO Chairman Carrin Patman said the bond issue will list all the projects they hope to accomplish, but there’s a lot of planning that remains to be done.“Those exact routes will only be determined after involvement by the community, very robust involvement,” said Patman. “Everybody will have a chance to comment. We’re going to be sensitive and listen to the community.”Patman said all those projects won’t happen overnight, but will unfold over a period of years.“We’re going to start with the inner Katy corridor because we know that we already have federal money lined up for that,” Patman said.The bond issue will be on the ballot for the November 5th election. Officials say the initiative will not require any new taxes. Listen Share Gail Delaughter/Houston Public Media METRO light rail train on Scott Street in the Third Ward. X

Geekout 13 Xbox Ones big news wireless power and Kingdom Rush

first_imgAs we get closer to the end of the week, reflecting on some of the craziness of the past few days was clearly in order. This week’s Geekout gave us a little bit of time to stop and reflect on some of the goings-on in the tech world.Microsoft is still making headlines, and unfortunately they still aren’t good ones (at least in my opinion). The company has reversed its Xbox One policies due to the intense negative feedback, but in doing so managed to strip some of the features that were exciting about the console. At the end of the day, though, the PS4 is still $100 cheaper and the positive vibe surrounding Sony right now is going to carry on for a little while.The real question is whether or not the infamously short attention span of the internet collective will help or hurt Microsoft and its Xbox One come launch time.Intel looks ready to help do something about the incredibly slow progress of wireless power solutions, but instead of teaming up with the better known Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) to help make Qi better it looks like Intel has taken sides with the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP). While that doesn’t mean Intel will refuse to work with the WPC in the future, it does give cause to step back and wait for the possibility that A4WP and Intel will be pushing new wireless charging tech in the next generation of phones.In our video this week, Sal and Russ spent some time talking about their experiences with Kingdom Rush. This impressive tower defense game is new to the Google Play Store, but a sequel to the game is already available on the App Store. Our app of the week was a look at a new fitness app which took the 7 Minute Workout and stuck it in app form, making it easier to track your progress. (The maker of the app is EndLoop Systems, if this wasn’t entirely clear in the video.)Our weekly Geekouts happen live over on our Google+ page so if you’ve got a topic you’d like us to talk about on next week’s broadcast, leave us a message over there or right here in the comments.last_img read more

Thermoelectric silicon material reaches recordlow thermal conductivity

first_img The new material, which is a polycrystalline silicon nanowire, breaks two limits: the Casimir limit and the amorphous limit. The Casimir limit is a theory that describes the thermal conductivity of nanostructures, and breaking it means that the thermal conductivity of the new material is lower than the value predicted by Casimir limit theory. The amorphous limit is regarded as the lowest thermal conductivity of a material, since amorphous structures strongly scatter heat carriers. However, due to its unique nanoscale design, the polycrystalline silicon nanowire has a thermal conductivity that is three times lower than that of amorphous silicon materials.The researchers, Yanguang Zhou and Ming Hu at RWTH Aachen University in Germany, have published a paper on the polycrystalline silicon nanowire in a recent issue of Nano Letters.The researchers expect that the new material could be especially useful for thermoelectric applications. By converting heat energy into electricity, thermoelectric materials provide a way to capture some of the waste heat emitted by vehicle tailpipes, power plants, and manufacturing facilities, and then convert the heat into useful energy.In general, good thermoelectric materials are those that simultaneously have high electron conductivity and low thermal conductivity. Together, these two properties lead to a high overall heat-to-electricity conversion efficiency. In the new study, the researchers focused on decreasing the thermal conductivity while maintaining the already high electron conductivity of silicon materials. “In this paper, we report a new structure, polycrystalline nanowire, which can reduce the thermal conductivity to a record low value, only one-third of its amorphous counterpart,” Zhou told “If we keep the electric conductivity and Seebeck coefficient as constants, which can be achieved by doping the material, the efficiency of the polycrystalline nanowire to convert heat to electricity can be enhanced by 277 times with respect to its bulk counterpart.” Engineer creates new technique for testing nanomaterials (—Researchers have theoretically demonstrated the lowest rate of heat transfer, or thermal conductivity, in any silicon-based material developed so far. The key to the new silicon nanowire’s low thermal conductivity is its polycrystalline form, which consists of many crystal structures of varying shapes and sizes in random orientations. Based on the average grain size (about 3 nm) in the polycrystalline silicon nanowires, the Casimir limit predicts that the thermal conductivity cannot be below approximately 3 W/mK. But the researchers’ simulations show that the polycrystalline silicon nanowires have a thermal conductivity of just 0.7 W/mK. For comparison, this value is 269 times lower than that of bulk silicon, 77 times lower than that of pristine silicon nanowires, and three times lower than that of amorphous silicon nanowires.The researchers explain that an important feature of the polycrystalline structure is that the grain boundaries between crystals are discontinuous. As a result, the grain boundaries block and scatter the heat-transporting phonons, so that the phonons cannot move very far (only about 1 nm) through the material compared to how far they can move in other silicon materials (up to 1 µm), in which the grain boundaries form a continuous network. The results here raise the question of what the lowest possible thermal conductivity may be for silicon nanowires of any form. In general, there are two kinds of vibrations that contribute to thermal conductivity: propagons and diffusons. The researchers expect that it should be possible to completely eliminate the contribution of propagons by incorporating disorder in the form of nanotwinned structures into the polycrystalline silicon nanowires to minimize their transport. Diffusons, on the other hand, are caused by the inherent structural disorder of a material, so they cannot be reduced in this way. Nevertheless, by eliminating the contribution of propagons, the researchers expect that the thermal conductivity of the polycrystalline silicon nanowires can be further reduced by 20%. The researchers plan to pursue this goal in future work. © 2016 Explore further More information: Yanguang Zhou and Ming Hu. “Record Low Thermal Conductivity of Polycrystalline Si Nanowire: Breaking the Casimir Limit by Severe Suppression of Propagons.” Nano Letters.

How to build from source code in GNULinux

first_imgHow to build from source code in GNU/Linux by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on May 24, 2017 in Linux – Last Update: May 23, 2017 – 10 commentsMost repositories for many GNU/Linux distributions have mass amounts of software and packages available within them; it’s becoming more and more rare you are required to build anything from source (unless you use Gentoo), however, many users are left unaware of how to do so if the need ever arises.This tutorial will show you from beginning to end, how it’s done. I use Arch Linux, so little quirks may arise that are slightly different from distributions like Ubuntu, but the process is nearly identical, except when fulfilling dependencies comes into play.Note: This tutorial will be done almost entirely within the command line, so be prepared to get your hands a little dirty and have a terminal window open!We are going to build Pidgin, from source. Pidgin is a popular multi-protocol chat client, used to connect to multiple different chats at once, such as Skype and Facebook Messenger (There is an article here on Ghacks, showing how to connect to those very two)Pidgin is available in most distribution repositories, but I thought we would build it, since it’s simple, easily done, and won’t get super complicated for your first time building.Step 1: Download the sourceFirst thing we need to do, is get our sourcefiles! You can grab them from here.Once those are downloaded, pop open your terminal and navigate to your Downloads folder (or wherever you downloaded that tarball to)cd /DownloadsNext, we need to unpackage the archive, we do this via the ‘tar’ commandtar -xf pidgin-2.12.0.tar.bz2Note: the -x tells tar to extract the filethe f tells tar to read the archive content from a file, like our pidgin-2.12.0.tar.bz2next, we cd into the directorycd pidgin-2.12.0/Next, we need to configure the source code for our machine, and ensure that we have all the necessary dependencies required to build the source.Typically this is done simply by typing ./configure, however, I know that pidgin is going to error if you do that because most distributions do not have the necessary packages to compile two parts of Pidgin: required for TCL support (an older programming language rarely used anymore), as well as packages needed to support ‘meanwhile’, which is needed for using Pidgin with “Sametime,” an IBM instant messaging service/product.So, unless you specifically need support for TCL or Sametime, we are going to tell our system to disable building those packages into Pidgin, therefore bypassing our need to fulfill those requirements to configure the application!./configure –disable-meanwhile –disable-tclif everything goes well (as it did on my very minimal Arch Linux install, so users of more robust distributions also ‘shouldn’t’ run into issues), you’ll get a bunch of scrolling text on the screen, eventually telling you:configure complete, now type ‘make’…Which is exactly what we do nextmakeYou’re going to see a whole bunch of text absolutely flood your terminal at this point. You on the other hand are going to go get a coffee, walk the dog, or post that image on social media you’ve been wanting to post and kept putting off; this is going to take a few minutes (it took around 5 minutes or so on my laptop)Once that’s finally finished, the last step is to install Pidgin!sudo make installWhen the wall of text is finished, so are you!Note: I had to log out and back in, before Pidgin showed up in my applications menu. If you don’t see it, try that.To sum it up:Download the source file and extract it.Run ./configureRun makeRun sudo make installFinal WordsThat’s it! That is the basics of compiling applications from source. Some applications are done a little differently, but that is another topic for another day; you’ll find this process is the same for many, many programs. So, enjoy!SummaryArticle NameHow to build from source code in GNU/LinuxDescriptionMike explains how to build a software program from source on GNU/Linux devices.

Pandaw River Expeditions has become the first West

first_imgPandaw River Expeditions has become the first Western operator to reach China’s Yunnan Province via the Mekong River, when the RV Champa Pandaw moored at Guanlei this week.The Champa Pandaw, which has 14 teak-finished staterooms, was specially built to withstand the strong currents and challenging navigational conditions of the Upper Mekong and deliver Southeast Asia’s first-ever “four country” river expedition.Running from October to April, Pandaw’s 14-night cruise The Mekong: from Laos to China operates upstream and downstream between the Lao capital Vientiane and Jinghong in China, via moorings in Thailand and Burma.The cruise is the latest in a long line of pioneering river expeditions from the company which, since its foundation in 1995, has led the way on high-end experiential cruising on the rivers of Asia. Champa Pandaw is the latest edition to Pandaw’s growing fleet of unique,  colonial-style ships. Built and finished to the highest levels of engineering and craftsmanship, 17 of the ships currently ply Asia’s waterways, including the Irrawaddy, the Chindwin and the Mekong rivers.Paul Strachan, Pandaw’s Founder said: “It has been a long-held dream of ours to offer travellers the chance to journey on a Pandaw ship on the Upper Mekong all the way to China, so today marks a major milestone in our history.“We have faced many challenges developing this new and exciting route into Yunnan Province and I would thank all our team and partners for their part overcoming the difficulties to make it happen.“Exploring the Upper Mekong on a four-country river expedition from Laos to Thailand, Burma to China is a fascinating and unforgettable off the beaten track adventure, and passengers make the trip knowing that they entering exciting new territory.”Tony Deng, Managing Director of China Kindness Tour, Kunming, Pandaw’s partner in China said: “The arrival of the Champa Pandaw marks the beginning of a new era on Mekong River, and it’s an honour to be playing a part. We are very pleased to be partnering with a company of Pandaw’s reputation on the Mekong in China. We see this as an important way of opening up Yunnan Province to high-end experiential tourism.“Bigger than the entire country of the Netherlands or  Denmark, with a population of 45 million, Yunnan Province has so much to offer the traveller, from glorious mountain scenery, fabled cities such as Lijiang, Dali and Zhongdian, also known as ‘Shangri-La’. It is also home to over 50 ethnic minorities.”Pandaw’s four-country river expedition allows passengers to enjoy discovering charming villages and experience stunning scenery amid pristine jungle.Highlights include the Golden Triangle, spectacular defiles, the Tat Kuang Si waterfall, and the very emerald green waters of the Mekong in China’s Yunnan province. The journey includes overnight stops in Vientiane, Luang Prabang, Chiang Saen and Jinghong.Built in a specially created shipyard on the Burmese Mekong, using a methodology and design based on Pandaw’s unparalleled knowledge of local riverine conditions, the Champa Pandaw was designed with ultra-low draft and extra powerful engines generating 1400 horsepower, almost twice the power of other ships in the Pandaw fleet.last_img read more

UN Security Council renews Unficyp mandate

first_imgThe UN Security Council on Tuesday renewed the six-month mandate for the peacekeeping force in Cyprus Unficyp, urging all sides to renew their political will and commitment to a settlement under UN auspices.It said the status quo was unsustainable.The Council also urged that efforts be renewed to implement all remaining confidence-building measures and for agreement on and implementation of further steps to build trust between the communities.In this context, more crossing points should also be opened, the Council said. It echoed the UN Secretary-General’s belief that the responsibility for finding a Cyprus solution lay first and foremost with the Cypriots themselves.The leaders also needed to clearly explain to Cypriots the benefits of a settlement, the UN body said, as well as needing to show increased flexibility and compromise well in advance of any referenda.In a nudge to Greece and Turkey, it urged practical steps towards helping the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders to renew their commitment to a settlement under United Nations auspices while ensuring no actions were taken that “could lead to an increase in tension, undermine the progress achieved so far, or damage the goodwill on the island”.The Security Council also urged the opening up of access to all areas to allow the Committee on Missing Persons to carry out its work “trusting that this process will promote reconciliation between the communities”.Women were also essential to the political process and their active participation at all levels of the peace process should be encouraged, the Council said, as should that of civil society when it came to bicommunal contacts.On the substance of negotiations, the Security Council urged the leaders to put their efforts behind further work on reaching convergences on the core issues and to intensify work with the technical committees.There should also be public messages on convergences and the way ahead, “and delivering more constructive and harmonised messages; and by refraining from rhetoric that could make a successful process more difficult to achieve”.The Secretary-General’s Good Offices remain available to assist the sides, should they jointly decide to re-engage in negotiations with the necessary political will, the resolution, which extended Unficyp’s mandate until July 31, 2018, said.On the force itself, the Security Council welcomed the Secretary-General’s recent strategic review and said it supported the need to improve “the mission’s capacity for liaison and engagement with the sides across all components, including people to people contacts, to keep stability and calm, and thereby contribute effectively to conditions conducive to progress in a settlement process”.The Council also wants to see another report from the Secretary-general on progress towards a settlement by June 15, 2018.You May LikeKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

residents have no option but to use the municipal water for washing and cleaning purposes "We cannot afford to use the water supplied by the municipality even for bathing We haveto buy mineral water for a head bath We are not able to host our friends or relatives for more than a day due to the shortage We can neither ask them to use the salty water nor can we buy mineral water frequently for them" says Safiulla a resident For potable water it’s the private suppliers they depend on "We buy water for cooking at Rs 6 to Rs 8 per pot and drinking water from private suppliers at Rs 20-25 for a 20 litre can"said Sameer Pasha another resident of RTC Nagar Hindupur residents were getting water which had total dissolved solids (TDS) numbering more than 2000m said B Naresh of Sri Sreenivasa Aqua Systems who owns a water-testing lab in the region explaining that generally water with TDS of 450 to 500 is suitable for drinking and cooking purposes Poor reservoir supply T Roshan Ali vice-chairman of the Municipal Council pointed to Hindupur for not getting sufficient drinking water from Penna Ahobilam Balancing Reservoir which feeds the constituency via tanks in the drought-prone areas The irrigation project is said to have cost the state Rs 650 crore People waiting at RO water plant in Hinudpur Image courtesy: 101Reporters/Y Maheshwara Reddy "The quality of water lines is not up to the mark Frequent bursting of lines hampers supply to Hindupur" Ali said adding that the MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna had persuaded the state government to allot Rs 20 crore for repairs “but the outcome hasn’t been satisfactory" Crediting Balakrishna for allaying the water woes to some extent after his election to the Assembly\ Ali said "Fibre pipes instead of steel or cement ones were installed at an estimated cost of Rs 160 crore in 2007" But Dr E T Ramamurthy general secretary of Jana Vignana Vedike a people’s knowledge organisation in the state believes authorities spent funds without carrying out proper homework before implementing a project According to him water supply from the low-lying Penna reservoir was proving difficult since Hindupur is situated at a high altitude (600m above sea level) Depleted water table Ramamurthy recalled that there was no scarcity of water in Hindupur as long as the Penna River was full "It helped improve the groundwater table The four irrigation ponds nearby were also a great help" he said and added that with no water flowing from the Nandi Hills in Karnataka to the Penna River for more than a decade now all ponds have dried up “Scanty rainfall (520 mm) and dry ponds depleted the groundwater Earlier one had to dig 200 to 300 feet for water but now it is available only as deep as 600-800 feet” Ramamurthy said The residents as well as the Jana Vignana Vedike have submitted a number of memorandums to the municipal authorities for supply of potable water "We have been suffering for long I want the authorities to find a permanent solution to the water woes instead of supplying contaminated water through tankers" Dr Ramamurthy said Political blame-game NA Shiva the leader of the Opposition YSR Congress in the Hindupur Municipal Council blamed the municipal authorities and the state’s ruling Telugu Desam Party for the increasing water woes in the city "Hindupur needs 10 million litres of water on a daily basis but it gets only 2-3 million litres a day from the reservoir This water is sufficient for two of the 38 wards in Hindupur There is no accountability in the council” he says Hindupur Municipality engineer I Ramesh on the other hand said water supply from Penna Ahobilam Balancing Reservoir has improved and “efforts are being made to supply water through tankers to areas facing severe shortage” "As of now we are getting six to seven million litres of water per day" he adds According to Andhra Pradesh Public Health department’s report of 27 June 2018 82 MLD water was supplied to Hindupur against 235 MLD supplied on the same day previous year Of this 52 MLD came from the PABR reserve indicating an improvement in reservoir capacity to provide Anantpur and nearby districts Another 30 MLD water was drawn from borewells on 27 June this year It seems some attempts were made to supply drinking water at a subsidised price— but in vain Naresh of Sri Sreenivasa Aqua Systems revealed that he had an agreement with the municipal authorities to supply 20 litres of water for Rs 2 in February 2016 “but politicians played spoilsport” Copy of the agreement Procured by Y Maheshwara Reddy “The agreement was not honoured and they did not allow me to supply water by creating one hurdle or the other” he says adding: “I am ready to supply potable water at Rs 1 for 25 litres if the municipal authorities bear the electricity cost” He owns a lab to test water quality and has around 10 borewells on lands near the tank bed areas where groundwater is plenty The author is a Bengaluru-based freelance writer
