Ground Zero | Bihar AES deaths: A hundred deaths, and no answers

Children with acute encephalitis syndrome undergo treatment at the Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital in Muzaffarpur, Bihar. As of June 21,104 of the 424 children admitted since January 1 had died due to AES.   | Photo Credit: Ranjeet Kumar For three days, Bihari Mahato and Shyam Babu Saha’s families have shared a hospital bed. The two daily-wage labourers, who have had to give up work for three days, haven’t exchanged a word, though they have much in common. Both have a boy and a girl each. And their children are battling for life. Sundar, Mahato’s three-and-a-half-year-old son, is naked, emaciated, delirious and has a distended stomach. Himanshi, six months old and in a striped shirt and shorts, looks bigger and healthier than Sundar. She sleeps longer — fitfully, her mother Vimla says. Both families are from different districts of Bihar. Mahato is from Muzaffarpur and Saha is from Sitamarhi district. Their children were suddenly taken ill. When the children were convulsing and feverish, they were rushed to the Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital (SKMCH) in Muzaffarpur. The doctors noted that their blood sugar had dropped precipitously. Both children are being given ...

Gardening with Allen: Irrigate native trees all summer

RIDGEFIELD — It took more than half a game, but once the Ridgefield Raptors’ bats got going, they didn’t stop.… NEW YORK — Barbie has been many things over the years. Now, she’s dressed as Ziggy Stardust. On a recent summer afternoon, Marshall Park was full of kids climbing ladders, rocking on swings, hurtling down slides and… We have property with lots of fir and cedar trees. For some unknown reason, we had two firs die the last two years which were close to each other. We had them removed. Now two cedars and three firs in the same area are dying. Do you have any suggestions? In most cases the native fir and cedar trees which are dying in Washington and Oregon are suffering from summer drought and heat conditions. They are dying in the forests as well as in urban areas. There used to be some carryover of summer subsoil moisture which brought them through the summer dry period. This was supplemented by occasional summer rain. The last three summers have been especially hot and dry. One weather forecaster said that this June is likely to be the driest on record. It is our own version of climate change. Some of our arborvitae and other evergreen hedges which are seldom i...

Silicone molding is an affordable production method that can allow you to make a series of

Silicone molding is an affordable production method that can allow you to make a series of identical objects for prototyping and functional testing. Until now, however, fabricating molds for casting complex objects required a lot of experience and also involved manual work, which made the process slow and expensive. Scientists at the Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione (ISTI-CNR) and the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) have developed a new tool for fabricating digital objects through reusable silicone molds. The tool automatically finds the best method to design the molds, and also delivers templates for so-called “metamolds”: Rigid, 3D printed molds used to fabricate the optimized silicone molds. The metamolds (red pieces far left and right) are used to fabricate the silicone molds (greenish and white shapes in the middle). Credit: Luigi Malomo Silicone molding is simple and accurate and will forgive many mistakes. Extracting the object from the mold generally requires separating the mold pieces without getting them caught in overhanging parts of the object. A careful cut is required to open the mold. “Until now, ...

Anthony Davis’ year of uncertainty finally felt finished when he stood in the Los Angeles Lakers’

Anthony Davis’ year of uncertainty finally felt finished when he stood in the Los Angeles Lakers’ training complex and proudly held up his new gold jersey while LeBron James looked on approvingly. After months of upheaval around his departure from the New Orleans Pelicans, the superstar forward is looking forward to years of success and stability on the West Coast. Sure, Davis knows the Lakers are rarely stable, and championships are the only success this franchise understands. “The most difficult part for me was just not knowing,” Davis said on Saturday. “When it was announced that I was being traded, I don’t want to say it was a relief, (but) it was something that I’d thought about for a long time. Obviously it was tough to leave the city I’d been playing in for seven years, but I think it was best for me. “When I found out I’d been traded to the Lakers, I realized it was an unbelievable opportunity for me,” he added. “To be here with a wonderful organization, and then to be able to play alongside LeBron and the players that we have now… to get the opportunity to do that and come here and play for an...

A smart door lock is a useful convenience for people who don’t like carrying keys, but

A smart door lock is a useful convenience for people who don’t like carrying keys, but it’s also an essential upgrade for families, landlords, and anyone else who has to deal with more than one person accessing their home. While some offer neat features such as auto-unlocking, smart locks that have multiple ways to access your front door offer the most benefits. And here’s where Kwikset’s Premis door lock stands out. It’s one of the few smart door locks that have it all – regular key access, built-in keypad access, voice control access, and local and remote access through your smartphone. With all these ways to gain entry, a dead phone, a lost key, forgotten code or drained batteries will never keep you out of your home again. Sadly, it only works with iPhone, so Android users can stop here, but if you’re an iPhone user read on.Price when reviewed$229 Buy on Amazon Kwikset first launched the first Premis brand in 2016 with the Premis Traditional.
