How Lockdown Is Providing To Nature To Heal

first_imgHow Lockdown Is Providing To Nature To HealThe world is swept by the pandemic known as Coronavirus. If I search the history of epidemics, there were few in the 19th century but the 18th century was flooded with it. It was Spanish flu and other pandemics which have crippled the world apart from World War I and II. Effect of the Coronavirus or Covid19 The effect of Coronavirus is immense, the places which have been bustling with people like pubs and bars everywhere have been closed.Nature has stepped in, the morning chirping of birds can be heard without a honk of cars.I personally believe that apart from crippling the day to day life, it has also provided us with a  boon. You might be thinking that how it has imparted us with boon.It has given us a few priceless things :Fresh air to breathe Freedom from constant noise pollution Clean atmosphereRecently, I have read that the mountain range is visible from Jalandhar. It means that the atmosphere and environment are clean and the black which has darkened our brain and skin is also gone.Pollution and greenhouse emissions have also fallen on the continent.Is it passing by change or long-lasting impact on the environment The arguments can be seen on both sides. Though the current situation is seen as the reduction in the pollution levels up to 40 per cent, and also a substantial reduction in the travel.But will it be long-lasting or it is going to bounce back.Many scientists believe that historical epidemics have reduced carbon emission levels.  One of the prominent scientists says ” Black death from Europe in 14th Century, smallpox from South America in the 16th Century and arrival of Spanish conquistador has left an impact of the change in CO2 level.Less Industrial ActivityPrevious reductions were due to less Industrial activities and in the current, they will see a drop of 0.3 % in carbon dioxide emissions due to Covid19 pandemic. It is seen that the global economy will also grow. It has also seen the cancellation of mass events.Lessons To Learn One of the important lessons to be learnt from coronavirus that digitalisation is extremely beneficial. As the pandemic advocated social distancing as the norm, it also is seen that it will inculcate some new habits like the reduction of food waste, stockpiling’s and maintaining social distancing.One more aspect of the COVID 19 is community spreading and the speed and extent of spread.It shows that climatic change threats should be treated on an urgent basis or it can cause the wildfire on the Earth. Either we need to stop or the conditions will stop us.Even the top businesses are counting the cost and estimating the losses, still, it is time left to heal Earth.” I feel Earth needs time to heal as we have reaped so much out of it. Now the time has come that we need to sow the seeds as n of healthier environments, which bring lastly effect, says Neeraj Chopra.This article is a vision-driven thought by Neeraj Chopra, who is determined in Better India after Coronavirus.He also emphasises on the usage of electric cars and measures to be taken to reduce noise and air pollution as well.last_img read more

Daily Breakdown: Minnesota vs Illinois

first_imgDaily Breakdown: Minnesota vs Illinois Ben GotzNovember 21, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintBy Mike HendricksonThe Gophers (4-6, 1-5 Big Ten) will face an unranked opponent in Illinois on Saturday after taking on three ranked teams in a row. A full breakdown and score prediction can be seen below:When Minnesota runs the ball:Redshirt freshman running back Rodney Smith is likely to play for the Gophers on Saturday after being a late scratch against Iowa last week. Minnesota’s running offense has been up and down lately, and Illinois is not the easiest opponent. They have allowed an average of 154.4 rushing yards a game, 51st in the Football Bowl Subdivision. If Smith stays healthy Saturday, and freshman Shannon Brooks has another good game, Minnesota will have a chance to get its running game back on track.Matchup to watch: RB Shannon Brooks vs. LB Dawuane SmootAdvantage: IllinoisWhen Illinois runs the ball:Illinois struggles in the ground game, as the Illini are second to last in the Big Ten and 113th in the FBS in rushing offense. The team’s leading rusher, freshman Ke’Shawn Vaughn, is also doubtful for Saturday’s game. The Gophers have some injuries on the defensive line, but have a chance to smother the Illini’s rushing attack.Matchup to watch: RB Josh Ferguson vs. DE Hendrick EkpeAdvantage: MinnesotaWhen Minnesota passes the ball:Illinois has a good passing defense. They are 34th in the FBS in yards allowed a game, and have 12 interceptions in 10 games. Redshirt quarterback Mitch Leidner has rattled off possibly the best four games of his career in his last four games however, and did it against some better passing defenses. The Illini’s passing defense should limit Leidner a little, but it should be another good game for the quarterback and his receivers. Matchup to watch: WR KJ Maye vs. S Taylor BartonAdvantage: MinnesotaWhen Illinois passes the ball:Junior quarterback Wes Lunt had a nice start to the season, but has only thrown four touchdowns in his last five games. He doesn’t turn the ball over much with only four interceptions this season, but he isn’t a good enough quarterback to do significant damage against Minnesota’s secondary. The Gophers are 16th in the FBS in passing yards allowed.Matchup to watch: WR Geronimo Allison vs. CB Eric MurrayAdvantage: MinnesotaOther key factors:Illinois’ offense is not where it was when it began the season. The Illini are averaging 16.8 points in their last five games – nine points a game if you take out their 48-point performance against Purdue – after putting up an average of 30.2 per game in their first five. Minnesota has faced some tough offensive teams lately; the Illini should be a break from that.Prediction:Minnesota 24, Illinois 13Minnesota’s offense is clicking lately, and while Illinois has a tough defense, Leidner and company should have no problem putting up enough points to win this game.Prediction record so far this season: 9-1last_img read more

Kaya eyes repeat vs Mendiola in PH Football today

first_img The Iloilo-Mendiola tussle is set at 4 p.m. to be followed by the matchup between two-time defending League champions Ceres-Negros FC and Green Archers United FC at 7 p.m. The Ilonggos is at second and remains in striking distance for the League title with its 43 points, on 14 wins, one draw and three losses, behind Ceres-Negros that had 50 points. MANILA – Kaya Futbol Club Iloilo aims to keep its mastery of Mendiola 1991 FC when the two football clubs square off in the 2019 Philippines Football League today at the Aboitiz Pitch in Lipa, Batangas. Kaya Iloilo head coach Noel Marcaida reminded his players not to take Mendiola lightly as the latter was coming off a convincing 4-1 victory over the Philippine Air Force FC on Sunday. “It’s important to have control of the tempo from start to finish, especially as they (Mendiola) are coming from a commanding victory,” Marcaida said. “It’s important that we stay sharp and build momentum heading into our busy run of fixtures.” Today’s encounter will be the third time that the two teams face each other this season. Kaya Iloilo first defeated Mendiola on June 19 to the tune of 6-3 before following it up with a 5-0 blanking on July 27. “We can’t allow ourselves to concede an early goal to Mendiola like what happened in our first encounter,” Marcaida said. “Also, they are very good at defending deep and breaking very quickly when they recover possession.”/PNlast_img read more
