Firhad Hakim Binay Krishna Barman inaugurate new home for jumbos at Alipore

first_imgKolkata: State Urban Development minister Firhad Hakim, along with state Forest minister Binay Krishna Barman inaugurated the enclosure for elephants in Alipore Zoo after a major facelift.The new home for the pachyderms spans over 12,000 square metre which is nearly ten times the size of the old enclosure that only had a 1,991 square metre area.”We selected Sunday for the inauguration because today is World Elephant Day. The widening of the space for the jumbos had become imperative with the Central Zoo Authority prodding the zoo authorities for increasing the space for free movement of the animals,” said state Forest minister Binay Krishna Barman.Rani and Tithi- the two elephants are a major attraction in the zoo, particularly for children.”The waterbody at the front portion of the enclosure has been cleaned and beautified. Natural grass has been laid and shower has been fitted for bathing of the elephants. The trees inside the new enclosure – Aswattha, Neem, Deodar and Krishnachura – are surrounded by small brick walls so that the elephants can’t uproot them,” Zoo director Asis Kumar Samanta said, adding that the animals love open space to roam around and enjoy nature.The cost for expanding the enclosure has been Rs 1.72 crore. It may be mentioned that in 2009, the Central Zoo Authority (CZA) had banned elephants in zoos but had made an exception for Alipore zoo and had told the state Forest department that they could keep two elephants at the most, by expanding the enclosure.”We are happy that the CZA has allowed us to keep elephants in Alipore Zoo. We have elephants here since its inception and the animal is associated with our sentiment,” Barman said. The zoo authorities were again prodded by CZA in 2015-16 and there was apprehension that the zoo will lose the jumbos, being unable to meet the CZA guidelines for keeping the elephants.After a number of sleepless nights, the zoo authorities, in consultation with experts, chalked out a comprehensive plan for widening of the elephant enclosure.The enclosures for animals like leopard, hyena and jackal needed to be shifted to another place, to broaden the area of the jumbos.The old elephant enclosure, with a moat, a shed and trees, was inaugurated in 1999 by the then Chief Minister Jyoti Basu. Before that, elephants used to remain chained in an enclosure one-tenth the size of the current one.last_img read more

Obese Eat peanuts to lose it

first_imgWhether your goal is overall weight loss or better overall health, researchers recommend snacking on peanuts or peanut butter, three to four times a week.According to a new study, teenagers at high risk for being overweight or obese reduced their Body Mass Index (BMI) when they adhered to a nutrition intervention that included a snack of peanuts, compared to those children who did not.“Obesity is the most pressing health issue facing us today,” said Craig Johnston from University of Houston in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“We’d like to think it’s preventable, but from where I sit right now, there hasn’t been a lot shown to be very effective on a large scale,” Johnston added in the paper published in the Journal of Applied Research on Children.The study acknowledged that snacking is more common during the adolescent years and that the unhealthy eating habit can lead to an unhealthy weight. In the 12-week study, instructors guided 257 adolescents from three Houston-area charter schools through a programme of physical activity and nutrition education. About half the students received a snack of peanuts or peanut butter three to four times a week, while the rest received the snack fewer than once a week.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixPeanuts were chosen because nuts are nutrient-dense snacks that promote a feeling of being full. Students spent 12 more weeks maintaining the healthy snacking habit. The findings showed that students who received the snack more regularly experienced a decrease in their overall BMI compared to those who did not receive the regular peanut snack. After school programmes and schools can replace energy dense, unhealthy snacks with peanuts to provide a healthier alternative for children — researchers in the study ensured students did not suffer from nut allergies, the researchers concluded.last_img read more

We are looking at not just being stationed in India, but taking the Olympiad abroad to different countries, where it would be easier to unearth even more local talent. I’m hopeful that we’ll continue to make India proud this year too.” He believes that IIHM is a perfect place for the people who are looking for an education that extends beyond the four walls of the classroom, and a qualification accepted internationally with hands on experience in highly skilled areas of the hospitality industry. The students are challenged intellectually to develop their analytical thinking, sense of responsibility and their holistic approach to solving business problems in the real world. Dr Bose also shared that the institution holds strong values which are ingrained in the students from the time they take admission in the institute.

At all levels of study, extreme care is taken to ensure that all the students get enough opportunities to be able to satisfy one. The students are engaged in international case studies, essay writing and presentation skills with emphasis on citation, referencing and bibliography. In the first two levels of the course the student is regularly exposed to the practices and problems within the hospitality industry through work in the kitchen, the training restaurant and the Front Office Studio and assumes responsibility for managing the operations. Revealing the curriculum in the institute, he asserted, “We started with 35 students; it has come up to 7000 students all over India. Campuses in Doha and Qatar are scheduled to begin in March 2019. The students of IIHM are placed all over the world as general managers, executives, owners, chefs, entrepreneurs. There is a huge emphasis on technology education as well a practical knowledge which is provided to the students.” Dr Suborno also informed that countries like Turkey, Sweden and France have also collaborated with the institute, for the various student exchange programmes. “We are a very modern institute, focussing on worldwide teachings, focussing on to social media which has become a necessity for the benefits of the students in the longer run and be industry ready,” he said.last_img read more
