The nondescript Punchari village in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur district, which is generating an annual turnover of ₹70 lakh with the production of clay griddles, expects to scale up its work with the technical upgradation of kilns in which the earthenwares are baked before they are supplied to big towns. These griddles are in a heavy demand in the neighbouring Haryana and Uttar Pradesh as well.IIT Delhi’s Rural Technology Action Group (RuTAG) will join hands with a Bharatpur-based foundation to provide technical assistance to the members of the Kumhar community, comprising traditional potters, for upgrading their kilns to bake more griddles with lesser quantity of mustard stubble used as fuel.About 35 households of Kumhars in Punchari produce 300 to 350 griddles of black clay each everyday in all seasons of the year, except during rains and the intense cold wave creating a frost. The earthy scent of black soil, procured mostly from the village’s pond, is maintained in the griddles even after they are baked.Prahlad Prajapat, 30, a leading griddle maker in Punchari, said the demand for clay griddles had soared among the “health-conscious” people residing in cities, who believed that the chapati’s nutrients were protected when cooked on an earthen plate. The clay griddles are supplied as far as Agra and Mathura in Uttar Pradesh and Faridabad and Gurugram in Haryana.Modified designMr. Prajapat said the clay pottery was taken up in the village both as a traditional occupation and the only livelihood option before the community. “Over a period of two decades, we have understood the demand in the market. We have modified the design and thickness of griddles to suit the requirement of gas stove and heater in the cities,” he said.About 25% of the clay griddles break during baking in furnaces. Bharatpur-based Lupin Foundation is working with RuTAG to find solution to the issue.

We knew, while it was only one goal, we needed to kill the game, we didn’t do it until the second half but it was a good performance.” He added: “We have a good squad. The players that played today didn’t play the last games and I know all of them are ready and, like they showed today, they are available and ready to compete.”The result is not as important. It’s more important for me to see my players in a good condition and with a good attitude today.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Dec 24 2018Bottom Line: Hepatitis C virus infection is a major cause of illness and death in the United States and injection drug use is likely fueling many new cases.This study, which used survey and vital statistics data, suggests about 1 percent of adults (0.93 percent) were living with hepatitis C from 2013 to 2016, and how common infections were varied by state and region. Nine states accounted for about 52 percent of all people living with hepatitis C (California, Texas, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee and North Carolina).The highest rates of infection were frequently in states heavily impacted by the opioid crisis, with 5 of 9 states with the highest number of hepatitis C infections in the Appalachian region. The results of this observational study could help to guide state-level prevention and treatment efforts because the resources necessary will vary by jurisdiction.Source: https://jamanetwork.com/

When Kameda did land power shots, they definitely put Vargas on notice, but the challenger’s output was too few and far between and he didn’t cash in on the punches that did connect.Kameda had a point deducted for unsportsmanlike conduct for throwing a late punch in the 12th round and Vargas survived the game challenger’s desperation-mode rally to have his hand raised in the highly efficient win.Although Kameda did everything to unnerve Vargas during the fight’s promotion, even sticking his tongue out at the champion during Friday’s weigh-in, Vargas just had too much savvy and guile with his game plan.Here’s how the rest of the Vargas-Kameda card went:Ronny Rios makes Diego De La Hoya quit for sixth-round KO; super bantamweightsRios unleashed a left hook to the body and an uppercut to drop De La Hoya in the sixth.

Rey Vargas wisely worked behind the jab as the taller fighter with a reach advantage, while Tomoki Kameda made his power shots land with emphasis – especially when they came as counterpunches.But at the end of the 12-round bout, there was no doubt that Vargas had firm control throughout and was the more active fighter, having thrown and landed more punches, including 443 attempted and 51 connected jabs, respectively. Judges saw it that way, too, each scoring it 117-110 in favor of Vargas, who retained his WBC junior featherweight title at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif. and live on DAZN on Saturday night, despite the boos from the crowd, which seemed to appreciate Kameda being the aggressor.

On a typical day, men spend a third as much time cleaning as women. Does that make women beacons of cleanliness, while men are genetically unable to see the messiness in their midst? This myth is a common explanation for why men don’t do as much housework as women. Men walk into a room and apparently can’t see the dust bunnies gathering on the floor or the piles of laundry stacked up on the couch.Headbutting Tiny Worms Are Really, Really LoudThis rapid strike produces a loud ‘pop’ comparable to those made by snapping shrimps, one of the most intense biological sounds measured at sea.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Why Is It ‘Snowing’ Salt in the Dead Sea?01:53 facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65875-why-men-do-less-housework.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0000:3500:35 It lets men off the hook for not doing their fair share of the household cleaning. But in a recent study we show that men aren’t dirt-blind — they can see mess just as well as women. They are simply less severely penalized for not keeping their spaces neat and tidy. Chore inequality Despite massive gains in education and employment, women still shoulder a larger share of the housework than men. Women today spend, on average, roughly an hour and 20 minutes per day cooking, cleaning and doing laundry. About a third of that is just spent cleaning. Men, on the other hand, spend about half an hour performing these duties — and only 10 minutes scrubbing and tidying. This household chore inequality is evident over time, across professions and even when women work longer hours and make more money. Even in Sweden, where government policies are strongly geared toward promoting gender equality, women do more housework. Swedish women do two times as much daily housework than men even though women are much more likely to work full-time than in other countries. Naturally, the more time spent on chores, the less a woman has to spend on other activities like sleep, work and leisure. The same mess In our study, which was recently published in Sociological Methods and Research, we asked 327 men and 295 women of various ages and backgrounds to assess a photo of a small living room and kitchen area. By random assignment, some participants rated a photo of the room looking cluttered — dirty dishes on the counter, clothing strewn about — while others examined a much tidier version of the same room. All participants looked at the one photo they were given and then rated how messy they thought it was and how urgently it needed cleaning. The first thing we wanted to know was whether men and women respondents rated the rooms differently. Contrary to popular lore, men and women saw the same mess: They rated the clean room as equally clean and the messy room as equally messy. Differing expectations So if “dirt blindness” isn’t to blame, why do women do more housework? One argument is that social expectations are different for men and women. Women may be judged more harshly for having a less-than-spotless home, and women’s awareness of these expectations may motivate them to do more. We tested this idea by randomly telling participants that the photo they were looking at depicted either “John’s” or “Jennifer’s” living space. Then we asked them to rate Jennifer’s or John’s character — how responsible, hardworking, neglectful, considerate and likable they were — based on the cleanliness of their home. We also asked participants to assess the extent to which she or he might be judged negatively by unexpected visitors — extended family, bosses and friends — and how much responsibility they believed Jennifer or John would bear for housework if they were working full-time and living alone, working full-time and married with children, or a married, stay-at-home parent. This is where things got interesting. Participants rated the photos differently depending on whether they were told that a woman or a man lived there. Notably, respondents held higher standards of cleanliness for Jennifer than they did for John. When they were told the tidy room belonged to Jennifer, participants — regardless of gender — judged it less clean and more likely to inspire disapproving reactions from guests than when the same exact room was John’s. We’ve all heard ‘men are lazy’ Still, we did find that both men and women pay a large penalty for having a cluttered home. Compared to their tidier counterparts, both Jennifer and John received substantially more negative character ratings and were expected to garner much more negative judgments from visitors. Interestingly, John’s character was rated more negatively than Jennifer’s for having a messy home, reflecting the common stereotype that men are lazy. Yet participants did not believe John would be any more likely than Jennifer to suffer negative judgment from visitors, which suggests that the “men are lazy” stereotype does not disadvantage them in a socially meaningful way. Finally, people were more likely to believe that Jennifer would bear primary responsibility for cleaning, and this difference was especially large in the hypothetical scenario in which she or he is a full-time working parent living with a spouse. That people attribute greater responsibility for housework to women than men, even regardless of their employment situation, suggests that women get penalized more often for clutter than men do. Judge not People hold women to higher standards of cleanliness than men, and hold them more responsible for it. Some women may internalize or embrace such standards. But for many, it is unlikely a love of cleaning but rather a fear of how mess will be perceived that is the real problem — and one possible reason why many women frantically clean their home before unexpected visitors arrive. The good news is that, with enough collective willpower, old-fashioned social expectations can be changed. We could start by thinking twice before judging the state of someone’s home, especially our own.
