NATIONAL unacademy Teesta River Dispute- explained .The Teesta river originates in Sikkim and flows through West Bengal as well as Bangladesh. India claims a share of 55 percent of the river's water. JOGIGHOPA TISTA FARAKKA LINK PROJECT BHUTAN .Bangladesh wants a higher share- earlier negotiations broke DARILING down (India 42.5 percent of the Teesta's waters and gave Bangladesh 37.5 percent.) Bangladesh wants 50 percent of the Teesta's waters between December and May every year, because that's when the water flow to the country drops drastically Catchment area-83 percent is in India and 17 percent is in Bangladesh five Bangladesh districts then face acute shortages during the dry season Hydropower on the Teesta .is another point of conflict. There are at least 26 projects on the river mostly in Sikkim, aimed at producing some 50,000MW. Alternative-Torsa, which are closer to the border of India and Bangladesh, in fact, has connectivity with Bangladesh's Padma river . , MEGHALAYA BA N GLA DES MINSTRY OF WATERRESOURCES .
NATIONAL unacademy Vulnerable tribes: lost in a classification trap . A recent Anthropological Survey of India (AnSI)-the Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTGs) in the country -Nobase line surveys have been conducted among more than halfof such groups . Base line surveys are done to precisely identify the PVTG families, their habitat and socio-economicstatus, so that development initiatives are implemented for these communities, based on the facts and figures. the number of the PVTGs at the national level would be 63 . Tribes- Birhor, LanjiaSaora in Odisha Smallest population size among the PVTGs are the Senteneles .The Birhor are recognised as a PVTG in four States, while 10 other group are PVTG in two States, namely the Sahariya, Kurumba, Koraga, Korwa, JenuKuruba, Kattunayakan, Katkari/Kathodi, Kharia, Kolam, and Lodha. akfast in Khulna and lunch in Kolkata Khulna-Kolkata train, also known as Maitree Express-Il, travels 176 km 96 km in Bangladesh and the rest in India. .Also Kolkata-Khulna-Dhaka bus service.

SCIENCE unacademy IISc designs a novel graphene electrical conductor . graphene -single or a few-layers thick to conduct current along zigzag GRAPHENE edge unique property: allows flow of charge without any resistance at room temperature and above Benefits: can lead to power-efficient electronics and quantum information transfer emergence of graphene- 2004- discoveries happen around the world challenge to produce graphene nanoribbons using chemicals that do not destroy the edges 0142nm STRETCHY ONLY ONE ATOM THICK STIFF . .Due to the electron wave on each carbon atom overlaps and forms a . Here, researchers used a small metal robot to peel the graphene from .Effect of chemicals: edges conduct without any resistance WARNED EXPANDS WHEN continuous train of wave along the edge. It will remain conductive BEST ELECTRTCAL CONDUCTR pyrolyticgraphite. The peeling was done in steps of 0.1 MOST MPERMEABLE SUBSTANCE EVERDISCOVERED .This is an incentive to develop new chemical methods to make high- quality graphene nano-ribbons or nano-strips with clean edges
SCIENCE unacademy Large asteroid to buzz past Earth on April 19: NASA no possibility for the asteroid to collide with Ea Fly about 1.8 million kilometres over four times the distance from Earth to the Moon asteroid, known as 2014 J025, was discovered in May 2014 -at the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona, US asteroid is roughly 650 meters in size surface: twice as reflective as that of the Moon could be visible in small optical telescopes for one or two nights Small asteroids pass within this distance of Earth several times each week asteroid Toutatis, a five-kilometre asteroid, which approached within about four lunar distances in 2004 Also, comet PanSTARRS (C/2015 ER61) will make its closest approach to Earth, at a very safe distance of 175 mlion kilometres Comets Asteroids Made of: ice, rock and Made of: rock and metals compounds with hydrogen and carbon Length: 5 meters to Length: 1 kilometer to Hazy clouds and tails form Most in outer solar system Both Relics of the early solar system Orbit the sun Not spherical in shape Have collided with Earth nearly 1.000 kilometers nearly 100 kilometers No tails: at least one found to have water as they near the sun Most in asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter (Kuiper belt or Oort cloud) Probably formed inside Probably formed in outer Jupiter's orbit solar system May have caused May have delivered water to Earth mass extinctions on Earth Asteroids are made up of metals and rocky material, while comets are made up of ice, dust and rocky material. Both asteroids and comets were formed early in the history of the solar system about 4.5 bilion years ago. Asteroids formed much closer to the Sun, where it was too warm for ices to remain solid in 2015 by the Pan-STARRS (Fuzz ball) NEO survey team using a telescope on the summit of Haleakala, Hawaii
SCIENCE unacademy The fault lies in classification World Health Organization-300 million people across the world-depression current binary classification of depression: "well"or "sick" .An "unsuitable" model Levels of depression: Absent in this model - biomarker: distinguishes healthy and depressed people Levels of depression: Absent in this model - biomarker: distinguishes healthy and depressed people . Here, binary model relies on symptoms of emotional wellbeing This model-uses the answers to a list of questions and applies complicated set of rules to arrive at a diagnosis for depression need: advice to help themselves recoverand support from friends, community-based workers or Internet distressing experience lasts longer: two to four weeks: impacts day-to-day social functioning Needs medical intervention,, brief psychological treatments this can be provided through primary care physicians and community health workers recurrent or refractory depressive episodes: extreme stage : patients do not respond to existing treatments or suffer from relapse Need:a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist . . . Staged model in India: appropriate training and supervision, front-line community health workers .In Vidarbha,the staged model was implemented: providing care for mild stages by community agents . a community health worker-trained to detect depression, provide low-intensity psychosocial interventions, and We have Healthy Activity Program, a six- to eight-session treatment Severe stages: by counsellors working+ primary care physicians and visiting psychiatrists. refer the patient to the public health system for further management
