आज रात 8 बजे COVID-19 के मुद्दे पर PM का संदेश

first_imgआज रात 8 बजे PM नरेंद्र मोदी देश की जनता को संबोधित करेंगे। इसकी जानकारी pm मोदी ने खुद एक ट्वीट कर के दी है।जिस तरह कोरोना वायरस ने समूचे विश्व मे आतंक मचा रखा है। ऐसे में माननिय प्रधानमंत्री का संदेश देश के लिए बहुत ज्यादा मायने रखता है। शायद प्रधानमंत्री कोरोना से लड़ने के लिए कोई बड़ा निर्णय ले सकते है अथवा कुछ महत्वपूर्ण सुझाव देश की जनता के सामने रख सकते है।आपको बता दे कि भारत मे रोक थाम के तमाम उपायों के बावजूद भी कोरोना तेजी से अपने पांव पसार रहा है। जिस वजह से 500 से अधिक लोग इससे संक्रमित हो चुके है और ताजा जानकारी के मुताबिक 10 लोगों की मौत भी हो चुकी है।हालांकि इटली, अमेरिका, चीन, ईरान इत्यादि देशों के मुकाबले भारत मे परिस्थितियां अभी तक काबू में है। आपकी जानकारी के लिए बात दु की इस महामारी की वजह से देश की सभी छोटी बड़ी परीक्षाएं रोक दी गयी है। स्कूल ,कॉलेज वगैरा बंद हो चुके है । चारो ओर कर्फ्यू जैसे हालात है। सीधे शब्दो मे कहें तो विकास की रफ्तार रुक सी गयी है और जीवन का पहिया भी ठप पड़ चुका है।last_img read more

Prairie Village crime rate hits 5-year low, residential burglaries down drastically from peak in 2011

first_imgIt’s been a quiet six months in Prairie Village — and for the Prairie Village Police Department, that’s a good thing.Department statistics for the first half or 2014 show that crime in the city is at its lowest level in five years and that the crime rate is 30 percent below its five-year average.From January through June, the department has filed reports on 176 crimes. The five year average through the first six months of a year is 253.8 crimes, meaning there have been 77.8 crimes fewer than average so far this year. Of note, there have been just seven residential burglaries in the city this year. That’s a drastic reduction from the 40 that were recorded during the first six months of 2011. Cases of assault, burglary and criminal damage are also down substantially for the year.Prairie Village Police Chief Wes Jordan was quick to point out that the crime is often cyclical, and that the department was employing the same prevention techniques this year as it had been in the higher crime years. “None of this is saying that our officers are working any harder this year, and it’s not to say that officers were working any less in previous years,” he said. “There are certain things you just can’t predict.”Jordan did note that there had been a wave of auto-burglaries targeting unlocked cars throughout northeast Johnson County in recent weeks. Representatives from several of the NEJC area police departments met recently to see if their combined information could help identify additional suspects in that rash of incidents.The full six-month crime reports for Prairie Village and Mission Hills are embedded below.https://dfv6pkw99pxmo.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Crime.pdflast_img read more

The shape of things to come

first_imgThe world is changing fast in a multitude of different dimensions. If one stops to think about it too long, it can be disconcerting. One thing is for sure: whatever we think the future holds, the reality is likely to be very different. Perhaps the accuracy of our predictions matters less than the intent. Because without a vision of the future, how can we take decisions today or tomorrow that will enable us to build a better world?So let us assume our vision is “a built environment that enables a high quality of life for people within limits our planet can support”. First articulated by the UK Green Building Council, this vision is now shared by many organisations responsible for shaping the built environment.But do we all fully appreciate what this means? Through a process of visualisation, based on changes we believe we will face imminently, perhaps we can get closer to what such a vision might look like in practice. In the last few months, JLL has initiated a major piece of thought leadership into the megatrends that are likely to affect the real estate sector – here is an early preview.Megatrend 1: Clean-tech revolutionOur starting point here is the commitment we have made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 in the UK and across Europe. To achieve this, all new buildings will need to be net positive on energy and carbon to compensate for residual emissions associated with the 60% or so of our 2015 stock that will still be around. Individual buildings will be powered by decentralised community-owned systems that generate renewable electricity, heat and cooling, with high capacity storage and low transmission losses. Flat urban surfaces – whether vertical, horizontal, or diagonal – will be covered in photovoltaic film barely detectable by the human eye, as a result of our advances in nanotechnology. Cities will be dotted with wind and solar power hubs and, of course, we will have transformed the efficiency of existing homes such that the term “fuel poverty” is no longer understood.Megatrend 2: Urbanisation and the rise of land and resource scarcityBy 2050, somewhere in the range of 66-75% of people will be living in cities. This will lead to the emergence of new satellite, largely residential towns constellated around major conurbations to house workers. These will have been developed due to poor housing supply and chronic overpricing within city centres, but also due to massive public and private investment in infrastructure, resulting in fast, low-carbon mass-transit systems.Volatility in commodity pricing and severe shortages of certain resources (such as water and rare metals) will have dramatically changed the way in which the construction industry operates. Prefabrication, on-site assembly, natural methods of construction, and biomimic design will all feed into a more circular economy, as construction and demolition waste is eliminated and materials-exchange schemes become the norm.Megatrend 3: Ageing demographics and the growing importance of ‘wellness’With the proportion of elderly expected to rise by 50% by 2030, the typical real estate portfolio will have adapted significantly – both in terms of asset allocation and physical design features. Healthcare and small-scale retail facilities will be integrated within residential schemes, and sophisticated mechanisms to allocate carers to patients will maintain a high quality of life for elderly people within buildings they call “homes”.The quest for wellness will have continued apace, as individuals increasingly recognise the link between their wellbeing and surroundings. Boundaries between inside and outside will become increasingly blurred, as design emphasis focuses on reconnecting people to the natural world. This will take place through biomimic design, green spaces and parks, integrated design such as green walls, vertical farms, roof gardens, and even digitally enhanced video screens showing uplifting scene-scapes or views.Megatrend 4: Technology and smart citiesThe performance gap between a building’s anticipated performance and how it actually operates will have all but disappeared. Buildings will be digitally optimised so that resource efficiency, materials recycling and energy profiling can be delivered through the Internet of Things, which itself will offer growing networks of low-cost sensors and actuators for data collection and monitoring in buildings, supporting smarter decision-making and asset management.The growing population of urbanites buying their varied goods online will have led to a drastic rethink of retailers’ logistics networks. Look out for “urban logistics” units – or small thin parcel hubs with extensive loading facilities embedded in cities, enabling rapid response and delivery times. Julie Hirigoyen is UK head of sustainability JLL and incoming chief executive UK Green Building Council.
