Powered by Firework In less than a month, the Coronavirus pandemic that originated from the city of Wuhan, China, found its way into every corner of the world. The primary mode of transmission were the unsuspecting tourists, who unintentionally brought the virus from the epicentre. However, despite huge number of precautionary guidelines and procedures released by WHO and the Government of India,some  didn’t bother to follow them, and as a result, the virus has now entered the country. Amongst all the woes, senior cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle has come up with a statement on Twitter, indirectly taking a dig at Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Facebook/AFPDespite the warnings and suggestions going around to prevent further spread of the virus, many have not bothered to pay heed to them, and has taken the global pandemic very lighly. This had irked Harsha Bhogle, who recently took it to social media to express his dissent towards the non-cooperating part of the population.yesterday, on his official Twitter handle, Bhogle wrote: “It is so disappointing when so many people are trying so hard and stupid, literate people coming from infected areas go around partying.”Advertisement He also indicated that despite the efforts of many, the carelessness of just a handful can cause a severe desecration in the population: A million people can do right but it requires a few silly people to lose the fight. Let us stay vigilant. We are in this together.”Mentioning the notion of people who have arrived from virus-ridden areas and then landing themselves in social gatherings, seems to be a jab at singer Kanika Kapoor, who recently came back from London amidst the global emergency from the pandemic.Even after coming back from Europe, which has seen massive infections around, Kanika was reported to hide her travel history from officials to avoid quarantine and self isolation. Even after that, she was allegedly involved in a party with her family and friends in Lucknow.After Kanika was tested positive for COVID-19, the singer has received severe reprimand from the public, and even an FIR was lodged at her. However, Kanika herself denied the charges thrown at her, stating that she had undergone screening at the Lucknow airport after landing“I was part of the scanning process at the airport. I also called the CMO to check me and filled all forms at the airport,” Kanika said in an interview with Aaj Tak.“I attended a small get together on March 13,” although she accepted that she was involved in partying, Kanika has stated she has tried her best efforts to prevent anty further spread of the virus: “I tried my level best not to contaminate others. Throughout the past week, we were all wearing gloves.”Also read-PM Modi lauds ‘partnership’ between Kaif and Yuvraj as he urges Coronavirus fightSunil Chhetri reveals which game he could beat both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at!

Popular Mechanics Lists “Future-Proof” Jobs – Many of Them Green

first_imgA decage ago, “Top 10 Jobs” lists didn’t typically highlight green and alternative-energy professions. But they do now.Many specialty publications – and the business sections of most daily newspapers – create “hot jobs” lists every year or so as a way to put the broader employment market into perspective and, while they’re at it, maybe even dispense useful advice.The May issue of Popular Mechanics features a list headlined “10 Future-Proof Jobs You Can Get Right Now.” The list in fact might not be of immediate practical value to anyone except those who happen to have the academic training required for the professions identified. But it does affirm the notion that expertise in energy-efficiency fields will continue to gain traction in the near future, if not indefinitely.Five of the 10 jobs on the list focus on energy efficiency or alternative energy technology. The job in the No. 2 spot, for example, is “Zero-Energy Home Architect.” Noting that developments in solar technology and energy-efficient design are being applied to a wide range of residential projects and a growing client base, the accompanying job description cited Michelle Kaufmann, whose Oakland, California, firm has become known for designing all-climate, sustainably built modular homes (including the mkSolaire, the mkLotus, the factory-built Glidehouse, and the recently introduced three-story “farmhouse,” mkHearth).No. 3 on the future-proof jobs list is “Combined Heat and Power Mechanic” – an expert in installing and servicing cogeneration units that use turbine technology to produce both electric and thermal energy. CHPs are touted for use in a variety of commercial settings: They can provide much of the heat, for example, that would otherwise be generated by less efficient boilers.Job No. 4 is “Energy Engineer.” Pretty wide scope of possibilities here: Energy engineers “may recommend new air-conditioning equipment or solar-powered streetlights,” says the magazine, or they may design entire renewable-energy systems, such as those that harness methane from a landfill to generate electricity.No. 7: “Wind Explorer.” Wind explorers are trained in wind turbine construction and, quite often, environmental engineering. Travel required. The job often entails scouting locations in developing countries where grid lines and power plants are scarce or nonexistent.No. 9: “Battery Engineer.” This discipline often combines electrical engineering, chemistry, materials science, and mechanical engineering, the magazine points out, adding that demand in this field is growing.last_img read more
