Comments Off on For the first time ever, all villages in India have electricity

India has just reached a major energy milestone: for the first time ever, every single one of its inhabited villages has electricity. There are nearly 600,000 villages in the country, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised that they would all be connected to power within 1,000 days of August 2015. Last Saturday, Leisang village was connected to India’s power grid, completing that promise. I salute the efforts of all those who worked tirelessly on the ground, including the team of officials, the technical staff and all others, to make this dream of a #PowerfulIndia a reality. Their efforts today will help generations of Indians in the coming years. pic.twitter.com/t8WjZgpNuT — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 29, 2018 While Leisang was connected to the main power grid, some villages have relied on off-grid supply networks, usually powered by solar . Pakol, a village in the same same state, was the last village to be powered by an off-grid system. The power initiative, which Modi tags as #PowerfulIndia, also seeks to strengthen metering and power distribution within the country. Leisang village in Manipur, like the thousands of other villages across India has been powered and empowered! This news will make every Indian proud and delighted. https://t.co/UCPEEITbIM #PowerfulIndia — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 29, 2018 Related: The Indian city of Diu is 100% powered by the sun A village is considered to have power if 10 percent of its buildings have access to electricity . That means India has a long way to go before everyone has working power, but the successful initiative is a milestone nonetheless.” Village electrification means that the infrastructure to supply power has now reached certain parts of the village. The next step should be to focus on providing connection to all households and ensuring adequate power supply to these homes,” former power secretary P Uma Shankar said. It is up to individual homes to seek electrification if they choose. Via Times of India Image via Deposit Photos

Comments Off on Can Google Glass Help Doctors Perform Safer, More Successful Surgeries?

The world is gaga for Google Glass , but even the nerdiest among us must admit that the practical applications are few thus far. For most, wearing the internet in your eyeball is just an excuse to make social media updates with a spoken word. There are some industries, however, that could reap unprecedented benefits if Google Glass was implemented properly. Surgeons and doctors may be some of the earliest adopters, as new research shows that the technology could allow them to view patient scans and monitor critical vital information while performing procedures. Since Google Glass also allows hands-free recording from the viewer’s perspective, “hands-on” teaching could allow for remote training of new surgeons as well.

Comments Off on Minnesota Model for the Home Star Program Runs Out of Funds
