with you Nepal
In response to severe devastation caused by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake and many strong aftershocks that have hit Nepal since 25 April, the United Nations Emergency Relief Coordinator has released $15 million through the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to enable humanitarian aid organizations to rapidly scale up operations and provide immediate assistance to people in desperate need.
“With the death toll rising and millions of people affected, it's a race against time as humanitarian agencies work around the clock to reach people and communities,” said Valerie Amos, who is also Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs. “This allocation from CERF means that critical life-saving work can be scaled up immediately.”
The web application on the link below is aimed at helping individuals to post details of and search for the status of family members or friends affected by the earthquake.

Good News for the Environment: Artificial Photosynthesis Breakthrough
Slowing, or even reversing climate change won't be easy. The standard of living common in the industrialized world is simply too dependent on cheap and abundant energy, as well as many products derived from nonrenewable resources. The rise of developing countries is also contributing to this, as they obtain a higher standard of living as well. Many technological developments are necessary for a prosperous future that is also environmentally friendly. Still, compromises will likely need to be made on both ends. Society as a whole may need to sacrifice certain things in order to reduce their carbon footprint. Environmental movements will also likely need to accept that coal and oil will be a part of energy production for a long time.
But what if there was a way to do both? What if fossil fuels could be burned, at least for the time being, but the carbon emissions could be captured? Many groups are studying this possibility, even attempting to sequester bulk carbon dioxide from the environment as a whole. The ironic thing is that this technology already exists, it's called plants. However, the current rate of emitting carbon is faster than the planets plants can keep up with. Plants are also not very practical in attempts to sequester carbon dioxide directly from something like a coal power plant.<more>
Black spots on Taj, House panel cracks whip on ASI
AGRA: Even as the Taj Mahal is turning yellow due to the surrounding pollution, restoration work at the 17th century monument has left a visiting parliamentary standing committee on environment (PSC) team quite shocked.
When the 16-member team headed by Rajya Sabha MP Ashwani Kumar conducted an inspection of the Taj on Saturday, they found black spots on four minarets, forcing them to order the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to seek international expertise and to immediately remove the spots.
The committee's visit was done in the wake of a recent India-US study which revealed that carbon particles from diesel vehicles along with burning biomass are causing the Taj to slowly turn yellow.
The committee also criticized the local administration for failing in its duty to curb pollution in the Yamuna. It expressed grave concern over untreated water flowing directly into the river.<more>
