Tuesday, 13 November 2018 06:27 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

Rayagada/Kolnara,12/11/18: A joint Endeavour by Bharat Gyan Vigyan Samiti (BGVS)-Odisha and Unicef-Odisha is started to Strengthening Education Standing Committees through greater Community Participation to ensure all children in school and quality learning in 100 selected Panchayats of 8 districts of Odisha. Through this initiative there are a number of targets undertaken such as to conduct a study for getting a status on functioning of education standing committees under the Rights to Education norms. It is also targeted all Children in the age group of 6-14 years have to enrolled in the school and access quality education, third target is there will be Functional Standing committee with grater ownership on school education and fourth one is to Increase capacities of community towards quality education along with overall RTE compliance among (6-14) year children and GPRC (Gram Panchayat Resource Centre) will be established & strengthened for community linkage. 

Although Right to Education Act (RTE)-2009 has strongly recommended to ensure community participation in school process to provide opportunity to every child attends school and receives quality education, current governance has shown poor performance not only to empower the community but sizable number of school age children are out of school and non adherence of RtE norms have directly affect the quality education that befall upon the poor children. In recent year this situation has become very critical and complex. If today, it is not arrested, thousands of poor children particularly children in difficult situation will deprive from their rights.

Thus it is intended to take all the issues in persistence with access to school, quality education, adherence of RtE norms and finally strengthening standing committee who can review the school situation and can witness over all development of the school situation.

With consistent continuous advocacy by UNICEF–BGVS along with different CSOs, School and Mass Education Department, Government of Odisha on 30th July 2014 has come up with a guideline for functional Education Standing Committees in all panchayat across the state. Odisha is the first state to issue such circular jointly by department of S & ME and Panchayat raj, Govt. of Odisha.  

It is increasingly being realized that without active participation of community members, the fruits of RTE cannot be realized. Under this backdrop, Unicef -Odisha aspires to build partnership with BGVS, Odisha for the strengthening of standing committee in selected 100 panchayats of 8 districts of Odisha as model demonstration. The intervention districts are basically tribal dominated with high dropout rate; high migration, less literacy rate and most of them are prone to natural disaster. These are Angul, Ganjam, Khorda, Koraput, Malkangiri, Kalahandi, Raygada and Keonjhar. This intervention supports the systematic community mobilisation, mapping of community status, use of innovative communication methods and tools like rural sports and Kalajatha to engage communities on issues related to enrolment and quality education. 

In this regard, BGVS-Odisha with Support from Unicef-Odisha has organised the consultation at Kolnara block conference hall of Rayagada district on 12th November 2018. Kolnara Additional Block Development Officer Sri K. Siba Gopal Rao inaugurated the consultation. Among of others Block Education Officer Sri Tapas Ku Bhoi, Additional Block Education Officer Sri Brundaban Marandi, Child Development Project Officer Smt. G. Girija, Dr. Rashmi Prabha Das, Medical Officer in charge, Dr. G Sailaja, MO, CHC, Sri Prakash Ch.

Study helps solve riddle of Mekong River age and Tibetan plateau formation

Thursday, 08 November 2018 07:54 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

Bhubaneswar,07/11/18:A Curtin University researcher is among an international team that has found evidence the Mekong River was formed mainly by climate and not tectonic forces, as is widely thought, and illuminated the long-debated age of the famous waterway. 

In findings published in leading science journal Nature Geoscience, researchers collected rock samples from deep gorges of the Mekong River in the south-eastern Tibetan plateau and analysed them to gauge when the rocks cooled as a result of the river cutting its way across the landscape. 

Research team member Dr Martin Danišík, from Curtin’s John de Laeter Centre, said the results were then compared to climatic records for the area. 

“We analysed traces of uranium, thorium and helium gas within the rock samples to measure when the rocks, which formed deep in the Earth’s crust, rose to the surface,” Dr Danišík said 

 “We found evidence of a rapid incision, or narrow erosion, caused by a growing Mekong River during the middle Miocene period about 17 million years ago, which coincides with a period of heavy East Asian summer monsoonal rain over the south-eastern Tibetan Plateau. 

“Our data not only provides new constraints on the highly debated age of the Mekong River, but also suggests that significant formation of the river in eastern Tibet was likely primarily driven by climate, namely intensified monsoonal precipitation, and not by tectonic forces as is commonly believed. 

“This study contributes significantly to the debate of tectonic versus climatic causes of uplift of this area of the Tibetan plateau, which has been a topic of conflicting views for nearly two decades.” 

Dr Danišík said the research findings suggested the Mekong River in its current extent and size probably did not exist prior to 17 million years ago. 

“The strong monsoon precipitation period that occurred between 17 and 14 million years ago carved deep gorges into the south-eastern Tibetan plateau, which saw the Mekong River grow to roughly the size it now is. These findings overturn the hypothesis that the river incised in response to tectonic causes,” Dr Danišík said. 

Dr Danišík was part of an international research team assembled by Professor Junsheng Nie from Lanzhou University in China. 

The research was completed with funding from the National Key Research and Development Program of

 China, the National Basic Research Program of China, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the US National Science Foundation, the Australian Research Council Discovery funding scheme and a Curtin Research Fellowship. 

The Tibetan plateau is the largest and highest plateau in the world and the Mekong is one of the ten largest  rivers in the world.

With only 10 more days to go, here are the events that are scheduled to make Xpressions eventful and memorable.

All the events have already kicked off witnessing participation from various institutes such as IIM-Amritsar, IIM-Sambalpur, IIM-Rohtak, NMIMS Mumbai, KJ Somaiya to name a few.  

The excitement is clearly seen in the students who are eagerly waiting for the competitions to start. Some of the competitions have already opened their forms for registrations and huge numbers are pouring in, from across B-Schools in India. 

Amidst all the serious case competitions, the students engage in a multitude of cultural competitions organized on all three days and showcase their creative talents. Decibelz, the War of Bands keeps the crowd enthralled by performing rock music. Goonj, the solo singing competition, and Thirkan, the dance competition brings out the best in participants.
