Given rising pollution levels in Haryana’s Gurugram district, 71 air purifiers have been installed by the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) under Project Air Care, officials said Thursday.

The air purifiers are mainly installed in places where pollution levels are relatively higher, so that “the adverse effects of pollution on people’s health can be reduced,” an official said.

In this project, the official said 42 more air purifiers will be installed in the district.

GMDA Extra CEO, Subhash Yadav, said that under this project in the district, a plan was launched in August-2020 to install air purifiers under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CAR).

“This project was started in November 2020 by the chief minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar. The Indian Pollution Control Association (IPCA) is carrying out this project. The operation and maintenance are also carried out under his supervision,” said Yadav.

According to a study, he said vehicle smoke is responsible for 40 percent of the increase in pollution in the National Capital Region, and it was with this in mind that the project was launched.

Officials said 15 air purifiers at IFFCO Chowk, 12 at Sikanderpur metro station, six at Sector 44, at Red Light Area, eight at Medanta Hospital, eight at Bakhtawar Chowk, seven at Max Hospital, seven at AIT Chowk, eight at Sector-54 metro station and an air purifier had been installed at the GMDA Sector 44 office.

Radha Goel, deputy director of IPCA, said: “The increasing level of pollution in the NCR is a concern for all of us”.

“The special feature of the installed air purifiers is that they work on the principle of filtration. Installed at a height of about 1.5 meters, this air purifier has an outlet that absorbs the particles that pollute the environment. The pollution around can be reduced by 40 – 50 percent by these air purifiers. Also, the operation and maintenance of these air purifiers will be done by the IPCA for three years,” she said.

Why do tires deflate in cold weather?

Why do tires deflate in cold weather?

It has happened to many of us. As soon as you start the engine, the “low tire pressure” light will come on. But have you ever noticed that it happens more in the winter?

As the temperature drops, especially with arctic air, the pressure in the tire decreases. About 1-2 PSI per 10 degree drop. PSI stands for pounds per square inch. As the temperature outside gets warmer, you have more pressure on your tires.

When it comes to cold weather, individual gas molecules in the enclosed tired can have less energy at lower temperatures. Less energy means that the molecules move less. This means less pressure on the tire walls. The tire may therefore deflate slightly.

The opposite is true at warmer temperatures. There is more energy in the gas molecules. They move freely and exert pressure on the walls of the tire.

Knowing this, it’s no surprise that you may have noticed the low air pressure light in your car in this latest arctic air outbreak. It doesn’t always mean you need more air, just that your tires may need to be checked.

Here are some more winter tips that might help you: If your locks are frozen, cover your key with a little hand sanitizer, the alcohol will help melt the ice in the lock. Keep cat litter in your trunk. It can be used as traction for your tires if you get stuck. Putting some kitty litter in a pair of socks and leaving it in your car can help absorb the moisture in the air that can fog up your windows. Speaking of fog, a great way to get rid of it is to use a chalkboard eraser. Also, do not leave liquids in your car overnight. It can aid in the development of fog.

We must not forget the winter survival kit. No matter how new or running well your car is, you can still get stuck. Provide batteries and a flashlight, cell phone charger, blankets, water, and non-perishable snacks. If you are traveling in the winter, it is best to let someone know where you are going and how long it will take to get there. Sometimes friendly phone tracking apps can also provide peace of mind.

Australia vs England 1st Day of Testing 2 Live Scores

Ashes, Australia – England live scores© AFP

Australia vs England, Ashes 1st day of testing 2 Live:After Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc raced through the England batting lineup, knocking them out on Day 1 for a paltry 147 in just 50.1 overs, all eyes will be on David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith on Day 2 in Brisbane. Can the Australian batters drive home the advantage and beat England in the first Test game? Chris Woakes, Ollie Robinson and Ben Stokes will probably have different ideas. They would hope the Gabba field comes to their rescue, just as it did when Australia was bowling. England must strike early on the second day and not allow Australia to start. After the final session of Day 1 was washed away by rain, both teams hoped for clear weather to get things started. (FULL SCORED CARD)
